companies of the Fourth infantry bad

yesterday afternoon and entered upon a
sunken road, froai which they were
emerging upon a email valley surround

wooded hills, when the rebels, concealed
in the mountains on the three tides of
the plain, opened a hot fire, and sent
showers of bullets into the ranks of the
Americsns. Tiie latter deployed imme

the shots came all the time pouring in a

with the constant rattle of musketry.
General Hail's advance was first mo

the first 'range of hills to the east of
Monte, a town in the valley at the edge
of the hills. The insurgents were driven
out of the town and it was burned.
The Second Oregon volunteers pocketed
the Filipinos on three sides, and a brisk
fight ensued. General Summers threw
a battalion on each hill, and the Ameri
cans chased the rebels tor some distance.
The Oregon regiment lost three men
killed and six wounded. It is impossi

and the condition of the signal wires, to
