battleships, these eriortnouBBaby Whales
which McKinlOy has sent us in order to
inspire us to panic and deprive us of
sustenance. They give us courage;
their presence here fills us with enthu
siasm and incites us to combat. If thev

cause the deeired instant has not ar

selves in a position to start the ball roll

steamship Availes coming from Caraco
Siipua.de Furino and Kuevitae, and by
steamship Cob mode Herrera coming
from Sagua La Grande. These vessels
arrived at this port without news end
without having seen, anything worth
mentioning. On their voyages both
ships knew of the blockade and came
with all the precaution which the case
demanded ; hugging the coast like stick
ing plaster, preferring to run aground
rather than he captured. It is worthy
of notice that these vessels having much
less speed than they should have, and
which it is supposed that American war
ships have, broke the blockade whicli
Americans undertook to establish.
"It is said that last night 500 Ameri
can Negroes disembarked with Lacret
Morlah at Bambouranoo. Cavalry and
infantry were in hot pursuit.
"On Saturnay afternoon coast steam
ship Availes entered port from Nueritis

by the Americon squadron."

galued on her rapidly, but the Spaniards
got inside the 3-mlle limit before tho

San Francisco, April 26. The
raising of the American flag

not take place Thursday, as
expected, but it is believed
that the stars and stripes will
be hoisted as soon as the news
of the declaration of war
The statement is not denied
by either the American min

on the other hand the latter
said that his mission was to,
annex the island. '
Considerable influence has
been brought to bear on Pres

declared neutral, as many of

course would be fatal to an

refused to comply with the re
quests. Many supporters of the gov
