A GUARANTEED CURE Washington, May 9.—In reply to th« dispatch from Dewey announcing of- .-ially his victory at Mar.ila Secretary Long sent this dispatch: "The president, in the name of the American people, '.hanks you and your officer* and men for your splendid achievement and . overwhelming victory. In recognition he has appointed you acting admiral, and will recommend s vote of thanks to you by congress as a four,.di- tion for further promotion." The two dispatches received Saturday from Dewey briefly told what he had been doing while Uncle Sam has been waiting to hear from him. They wer« very satisfactory, so much so that all over this country the news they told was celebrated as nothing has been since the war of the rebellion, and this city was simply unable to go about its usual business owing to the interest takn in Detvey's news. .l-'ii'it Dispatch from theYk-ltn 1 . This is the dispatch that set this city ami the country wild with jubilation: ".Manila May 1.—The squa,dron arrived at Manila at daybreak this morning.

At the embassies and legations Commodore Dewey's reports were read with great interest, and served to renew the high tributes of the foreign authorities to the gallant American commander. The remarkable disparity between the casualties on the American and Spanish ships, as shown by the Dewey reports, was a source of special com- e. "When neartng- Baker bay • •judden upheaval of the waters occurred n little distance in front of the l«idin? ship, and quickly following this a. sec- ona ivsterspout denoted that the Spaniards hacl fired a couple of mines or torpedoes, but their efforts to blow up the ships were- absolutely unsuccessful. Almost Immediately the guns in the Cavite ba.ttery burst into a heavy caji- ionafie. The shells fell in the neighborhood of the Oiympia, but a majority of them fell short. The squadron thendrew nearer in toward the Spanish fleet and the battle began In real earnest. The orc>r of the vessels was as follows on entering the harbor: Oiympia. Baltimore, Raleigh. Concord. Boston, Petrel, MoCulloch. Xanshan and Zafiro. and thus tl;ey steamed to the center of the bay. When the battle began the thrt-e latter remained behind.

The fact that the Spaniards have lost l"iO killed and 250 wounded, while the American loss was confined to a few men slightly injured is reg-arded by the observers as clearly disclosing the utter \vorthlessness of Spanish arms. The ambassador of one of the great powers said it showed that the guns of the Spanish forts, as well as those on their ships, were worthless; otherwise they would have inflicted at least soma mortality upon the American sailors. SfrOKY OF THK ftKKAT FIGHT. latest Kcpust of the Details of the C'aptti i>f .'Munila Buy. Hongr Ko'ns, May 9.—When Commodore Dewey's squadron left here i' touched first at a point in the Philippine isInn.Js near Bolir.ao. as Commo- dnre n'--i\vy wished the insurgent agents to disembark there, ascertain the strength and disposition of the insurgvn: fon-e.". arranse to prevent needless bUuiusiied. and inform the in.»ur- genis ui his intention to change the government cf the Philippine islands, the i-omiinx3or* strongly objecting to giving the rebels a chance to commit ext esses Tin- insurgent leaders, however, retustd to disembark under any c,instrior;;tU:r. and the American ships coasted in search of the Spanish ships, but failed to lind them. Commodore De\\ey arrived at Subiij bay. about thirty niiles north of Manila liay. on Satin-Say. .April ."0, and sent the Baltimcr* and Coni-ord to reconnoiter the enemy. They found no Spanish ships a.t the entrance u: the bay and so the commodore decided tn risk the mines and proceed that .same night after dark into the bay of Manila, The Olj-mpia led the squadron into the bay and the fleet had passed Corregidor island before the Spaniards perceived them. A shot was then fired from the battery, to which the Raleigh, the Boston and the Concord speedily retorted and the battery was almost immediately reduced to silence. The squadron then slowly proceeded up the harbor and when day broke the town of. Manila wasseen about five miles iiistar.t. The American ships steamed deliberately alons in front of Manila, tneSp*n- Ish cannon from the batteries around the town ppeninsr firy, but magnificent show of desperate bravery. With her colors nailed to her mast she sanlt wir.h all hands. Her hull was riddled and, her upper deck swept clean, but the jfuns on the lower deck were still ftrinsf defiantly as the vessel sank beneath the waters. A torpedo boat tried to creep aiongr the shore round the offing an'd attack the non-combatants Zafiro. Nanshan and McCulloch, but was driven ashore and shot into bits. The fight started at 5:20, was adjourned it S:30 and resumed about noon. Ths finishing touches were given to Cavite by the Petrel and Concord. C'nviie ::s in utter ruin and has surrendered, the gunboats have been scuttled, and the arsenal set on fire and rxploUed, causing great mortality. The commodore of the fleet on board the .Reinu Christina was wounded, arid her captain, lieutenant, chaplain and midshipman '.vere.killed by a shell striking the bridge. Eighty of her crew were kili'erf and sixty were wounded. On the Castilla 100 were killed and sixty were wounded. The Spanish casualties a.g- Si-psrate more than a thousand. There v/ere no casualties among: the American crews, except that six of the Baltimore's men were slightly wounded by one of the enemy's' shells striking another shell lyinj," on deck and exploding it. There were only three shot holes in her upper works, five in the upper works of the Oiympia and a whale boat smashed on the Raleigh. No other d.amage .was done anywhere.. The disparity between the injury inflicted on the Spanish fleet and that sustained by the Americans is due to the superior guns of the latter and the superior marksmanship at long- range. The Manila esplanade Krupp 10-inch g'uns were fired, continuously, but the Americans avoided replying and the battery showed a white flag afterward. The terms of capitulation ar« still unsettled. Commodore Dewey fears ers— at Porto Rice: «.-«! a bai'Je is expected on Tuesday. It is also reported from Cape Haytien that Rear Admiral Sampson's squadron has been sig-hted to the north. The vessel which enyared the Montgomery is supposed to have b'en the Spanish warship Vizcaya; and It is suggested that possibly the Montgomery enticed, the Spaniard within striking- distance of Admiral Sampson. The crew of the German ship Bolivia, which arrived yesterday, say they heard cannonading to the northward about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Washington. May 9.— A Madrid dispatch reports Blanco as telegraphing that wreckage la coming ashore near Havana and that it is believed to be from the American battleship Cincinnati. which has foundered. This cannot be true, fis the Cincinnati is at Key West. Secretary t^ng denies that the Montgomery has had an engagement. .Spaniards Ave Very Poor Marksine.u. Key West. May 9.— [Copyright, by the Associated Press.]— Only poor tnarka- man=hipon the part of the Spanish gunners saved the Vicksburg- and the cutter Morrill from destruction off Havana Saturday morning. For over half an hour they were under fire of the guns of the Santa Clara -water batteries, but both escaped without material injury. although shrapnel shots from eight- inch guns exploded all about them, and both now show the jiears of the Spanish bullets. The wliy Spaniards had arranged a trap to send a couple of our ships to the bottom. They baited it as a man would bait a trap. A small schooner was sent out from Havana harbor shortly before daylight Saturday morning- (o draw some of theAmer- icans into the ambuscade. to return the fire.

There e spent a. few minutes ir. close conference going over th« situation briefly. Morrill Hax a Vrry Harrow Kfcape froii Beiujr Destroyed. But Saturday morning- the'Spaniards had better luck. The schooner they had sent out before daylight ran off to the easf.vard. hugging the shore with the wind ot- her starboard quarter. A light haze fringed the horizon and she was not discovered until three miles off shore, when the Mayflower made her out and signalled the Morrill and Vicksburg. The Morrill and Vi^ksburg immediately slapped on all steam and start I'd in pursuit. The schoencr instantly put about and rarj for Morrfi castle before the wind. In doinc so she would, according to the Spanish o]ot. lead the two American ivarships directly under the guns of t*he s?anta Clara batteries. These work;3 are a short mile west of Morro and one battery mounts S-inch and the other 10- inch guns. The Morrill and Vicksburg steamed after the schooner at full speed, the Morrill leading until within a mile and a half of the Santa Clara, batteries. Corn- modi-ire Smith, of the Vicksburg, was the first to rtalizA the danger intowhich the reek-ess pursuit had led them. He pfincluded ;t v.-as time to haul off and sent a shot across the bow of the schooner. At this moment ac eight- inch shrapnel shell carne hurtling through the air from :he water batterj'. a mile ar.d a halt' away.
