, New York, May 14. The British

were passed near Nan tnckot shoals yes

" ''At abont i o'clock on' the' morning

C8, a long,. low-lying craft was seen ap
proaching under the shadows of the

idly and was seen to be a torpedo-boat.
It flashed a light on us and Crossed
under pur stern, going to the east, and
fired a rocket, which was answered by
dot-and-dash flashes. . The night was
too dark to distinguish anything of the
nationality of the stranger. 1
"At daylight, about 20 miles east of
Nantucket south shoal lightship, an
other torpedo-boat was seen in the line
of th sun. which dazzled the water too
much to make her out plainly. She
wa of the "destroyer olass, and a very
large boat with a large funnel. ' Guns
were mounted on the bow. She ap
peared to be one of the recent English
type of torpedo-boat destroyers, and I
am sure there is no vessel of her olass
in the American navy. The Menantio
ran close to the lightship on Nantucket
and reported to the presence of the
torpedo-boats." . 1 '

Long this afternoon reoeived the fol-
lowing dispatch, dated Hong Kong:
- "There is little change In the situa
tion - since my last telegram.". I am
transferring to transports the steel
breech loading rifles from tire ennken
Spanish men-of-war. All the stores
from the arsenal are in my possession.
I am maintaining a strict blockade.
Add the Argos to the list of destroyed
vessels. . The El Oorreo is probably the
El Cano. . ; . DEWEY."
The dispatch is evidently a few
days old and does not show that Dewey
has possessed himself of Manila or that
he has received the last orders of' the
department." The nature of these or
ders in indicated by the assignment of
two such persons as Major-Generals
Merritt and Otis to command the
troops to be hurried to the Philippines
as rapidly as steam will take them.
General Merritt is the senloT general in
the United States service after General
Miles, anil in ordinary cases is entitled
to the niost important oommands,.' so

taken as an evidence of the president's
estimate of the importance of this ex

Torpedo Boat Damaged

In the Fight but Were Uninjured
Dead and Wonnded Taken to Key
West Caused by Carelessness.
. Key WeBt, May 14. America's first
dead fell yesterday in a fierce and
bloody : combat oft Cardenas, on the
north coast of Cuba. Five men were
blown to pieces and five were wonnded
on the torpedo-boat Winslow. The
dead are: "

: Four were wounded. '' ',
The battle lasted 35 tninntes. It
was between the torpedo-boat Winslow,
the auxiliary tug Hudson and the gun
boat Wilmington on one side, and the
Cardenas batteries and four Spanish
gunboats on the other.
The Winslow was the main target of
the enemy, and was put out of service.
The other Ameican vessels were not
damaged, except that the Hudson's two
ventilators were slightly scratched,: by
flying shot.' The enemy's loss is large
ly cOnjeotural. One of their gunboats
caught fire and the men of the Hudson
think it sank. The fire spread to. the
barraoks and swept away several small
warehouses, and for a time the whole
waterfront seemed to be ablaze.
' The Winslow was within 1,600 yards
of shore when the shells struck her.
How she came to be so close . was told
by her commander, Lieutenant John B.
Bernadou. He said: -'', , '
"We were making observations when
the. enemy opened fire : on us. ' The
Wilmington told us to go in and attaok
the gunboats. We went in under full
steam and there is the result.".
He was on the Hudson when he said
this and with the final words he point
ed to a huddle of American flags on the
deck nearby. Under the Stars and
Stripes were outlined five rigid forms.
' The land batteries of Cardenas sup
ported the fire of tho Spanish gunboats.
The engagement commenced at 2:05 P.
M., and lasted for about an hour. The
Wilmington and Hudson were ahead,
and opened fire on the 'Spanish boats,
which were lying at the dock. The
firing began at a range of 3,500 yards.
A few minutes later, the 'Winslow
came up and also opened fire. In an
instant, the entire attention of the
Spanish gunboats' and land batteries
was directed upon her. From all sides,
shot and shell poured in on the little
torpedo-boat The Wilmington and
Hudson still kept up their fire.'- The
crew of the Winslow never faltered for
a second. At 2:33, a solid shot crashed
into . the hull of the WIhbIow and
knocked put her boiler, In a moment,
she began to roll and rock helplessly.
Then there was a moment of awful
suspense. A fierce cheer of triumph
went np from the Spanish on the gun
boats and in the batteries.
The storm of fire was continued upon
the helpless boat. The gunboat Hud
son, lying near by, started to the as
sistance of the Winslow. After about
20 minutes, the Hudson approached
noar enough to throw a line. Ensign
Ragley and six men were standing in a
group on the deck of the . Winslow
ready , to catch a rope. ; A ' line was
thrown, and at about the same instant
a shell burst in the very midst of the
group of men on board the Winslow.
Bagley was instantly killed and a few
others dropped about him. Half a
dozen more men fell groaning on the
blood stained deck. ' One of the men
plunged headlong over the side of the
boat; but his feet caught in .an iron
rail, and he was hauled beck. Bagley 's
body was stretohed on deck, with his
face completely torn away, and the
upper part of his body shattered. '
;. When the shell burst, another wild
shout of triumph went . up from tho
Spanish boats and batteries, and again
a heavy fire was opened on the torpedo
boat ; V; ..; . . .'-
Finally, the Hudson succeeded in
getting a line on board the Winslow,
and was towing her out of the deadly
range when the line parted and again
both boatswere 8t the mercy ' of the
Spanish fire. -' 1
