Havana, Jan. 2. An engagement be
tween Spanish troops and the insurgents
. has taken place at 1 Est ante, south of
Alfonzo XII, not far from the frontier
of the proyince of Havana.
An official announcement says the
troops captured the insurgents' position,
but the loss of the enemy is not known.
It is admitted two Spanish officers and
four eoldiers were killed and 19 wounded.
The insurgents, following the usual
tacticB, did not attempt a decisive en
gagement,, bnt after a skirmish, pro
ceeded westward, devastating the coun
try. The authorities here, in announc
ing this skirmish, added the significant
statement that the troops "were moved
. closer to the province of Havana," which
would indicate that the Spanish forces
are once more in retreat.
Later in the day it was announced
here that further fighting between the
Spaniards and Cubans is taking place in
the vicinity of El Estante, which leads
the people here to believe that the insur
gents have been in pursuit of the Span
ish troops in the vicinity of El Estante,
which seems to be a confirmation of the
supposition that the Spaniards were
worsted and the Cubans are making for
the frontier o'f the province of Havana.
It is announced this afternoon that
Felippe Koderiquez, an insurgent leader,
has been killed in battle.

A Portland Man's Adventure.
Ensenada, Lower Cal., Jan. 2. L. C.
Pease, a Portland, Oregon, newspaper
man, was brought into this city today
by B. Valesquez, a vanquero, who Jives
five miles up the coast.
Pease has had a very rough experi
ence, having started from Tia Junta on
last Monday for a horseback trip by the
coaet route to Ensenada,, for his health
and lost the trail on Tuesday night.
W hile endeavoring to reach his desti
nation by following the coast, he found
-himself, late at night, in a country bo
rough and mountainous that he could
neither so forward nor return with his
horse; so he decided to push ahead on
foot, but first he shot his horse, which
had been injured by-a fall and cutting
the animal's throat he slacked his thirst
' by drinking the blood.
" Pease reached Valesquez's house
twenty-four hours later, having, by dint
of swimming around points and climbiDg
over rocks, accomplished about twenty
miles of coast which is generally consid
ered absolutely impassable. He had
been nearly forty-eight hours without
food or water and his mouth and throat
-.were in a frightful condition from hav-
-Jng chewed the pulp of cactus leaves to
elako his thirst.
Editor Chronicle : On New- Year's
day Mr. James C. Benson of 5-Mile and
Miss Fannie L. Wilkerson of Portland
were joined in wedlock, by Eev. Frank
Johns of Hood Eiver, at the residence of
the groom's parents. After the cere
mony, a splendid repast was partaken. .
Mr. Beuson is one of our substantia
young men, and is respected by all who
know him. .
Miss Wilkerson has retided but a few
months in this neighborhood, but by
her lady-like deportment and pleasant
ways, she has won the respect and
friendship of all whom she has met.
Several valuable presents were made,
which will be of use to them. They will
sxn take up their permanent residence
on 5-Mile, and the good wishes of the
entire community are with them. The
wedding was intended to be a private
one, with only members of the families
present, hence no cards were issued.
On the roll of expected guests was the
name of thelong-abBentson and brother,
Mr. Frank Benson of Idaho. His pres
ence would have completed the happi
ness of all.
liy this marriage Mr. and Mis. James
M. Benson are the only ones that now
remain at the old hearthstone. Though
they have grown old in the battle of life,
their works have not been in vain, for
they have made a good record, raised a
rcBpec table family, and by industry and
economy have laid by a sufficiency for
the evening of life. .They belong to that
band of hardy pioneers who endured the
privations of early Oregon life, paved the
way for the making of thousands of
happy homes and laid a foundation of a
great state. O. C.
