May 13.—A dispatch from to El Heraldo confirms the report of the arrival of the Cape Verda •quadron under Admiral Cervera «t Whsre there were no mines, and were •oon «teatr.ing into Cardenas bay. "It •was impossible for the Wilmington to approach nearer than 2.000 yards. The Spanish gunboats could not be seen from thU distance and the Winslow was directed to go nearer to see if she could determine where they were lying. "She had sone only TOO yards inslda th« Wilmington when she was fired Upon from a. gunboat. The Wilmington and Wlnslaw returned the nre. After & r«Lp!d exchange of shots for flffeei: or twenty minutes, in which a shore bat Ury is supposed to have engaged, it became plain that tbeWinslow could not steer. At this time the Hudson came up and opened fire and Uie Winslow asked to be towed nut, as she was disabled. The torpedo boat seecni^d to be the only target at which the enemy fired. She was struck several times. One engine was disabled, the steering gear shot away and o.i^ boiler was disabled. Her commanding: officer was wounded, but not s'-riously. "Ensign Bagley was f<t;aUy wounded. and died before he could be brought oa board the Wilmington. John-Varverss, oiler, and John Deneefe. first-class fireman, were killed on board the Winslow.

The other, Jo- eiah Tunell. ship's cook, first-class, died after being brought on board the Wilmington. He was struck twice. No casualties except on the Winslow." The following is a report or the fight from Havana, via Madrid: "At 8 o'clock Wednesday morning three large and three small American ships appeared off Cardenas. A small boat was detached with sor.ie marines, who landed near the fort and seized it. They also seized the semaphore station, takicg- the- coast guards prisoners. In the meanwhile- the warships began a farisms cannonading. Cardenas does not possess of any kind, and: only th* Jittla Dispatch from Dewey Several DHVS Old— <»host of Kuropeun Intervention. "Washington, May 18. — A dispatch came yesterday to the navy department from Admiral Dewey at Manila. It was dated Honjr Kong yesterday and was evidently = few days old, and does not show that Dewey has possessed himself of Manila. Another report from Hor.ff Kons was to the effect that the admiral had sent out the Concord and Boston to destroy the only two Spanish g-nnboats left in those waters. The Concord fuund one at Jloilo. and sank it after two hours of fisinirs. the Spaniards going down with coin i.- ;.iii?. The Boston was still loob- 1ns ai'ti'r its prey. Dewey's telegram referred to above is as follows: "There is little change in the situation since my last telegram. I am transferring to transports the steel breech loading rilies from the sunken, Spanish men-of war: also stores from the arsenal in my possesison. I am. maintaining a strict blockade. Add Ar- EOS to the list of destroyed vessels." In all official quarters, state department and diplomatic, the reports coming from London to the effect that some of the continental powers —particularly Germany and ^France—have made protests against American occupation o£ the Philippines are met with flat denial. There lias been no recent concerted action among the continental powers toward intervention, nor have the representatives of these powers in Washington exchanged any views lately touching on intervention. This statement is ' made in the most specific manner by Fre-neh and German officials. They ara beginning to -feel considerable annoyance at these oft-repeated reports, and' they are inclined to attach some significance to the fact that all of them emanate from London. In at least one embassy of a continental power this tendency at London has received offlcla.1 attention, ar.d the notice of the state department has been drawn to i.t-during an oJUcial interview. I'UKJ-'KKBEO TO IIA The Spy Who W:is .GhpLured at Wmihlne- !<m Cvinmils Suicide. Washington. May in-^Jeorffe—Down- ing, alias l-tu.wjiugsr't'Ke man arrested a'y under suspicion of being- a spy''in the service of Spain,, hanged hftnsc'ir at tin; Washington bar-racks- yesterday. A towel and a silk handkerchief were used as the instruments of deatV The guard who paced back and : forth-through the corridor had seen. Downing a few minutes before, sitting: on his tot reading a magazine. When' he returned the alleged spy was found- hanging from a bar across the top of' his- cell. The noose had been prepared- with the skill of a professional hangman. When discovered life was not-yet 1 •xtinet. and the surgeon and steward were called. Their efforts to preserve' his life, however, were futile, and Downing soon expired. Downing was an Englishman by birth, I years of age, and prior to coming here had been yeoman of the Brooklyn, 'rom which ship he was discharged because of suspicion attaching to his oyalty, and because he could not get along with the men. He swore to be •evenged. and coming to Washington, t is said, came into communication vith one of the Spanish attaches, who lired him lo furnish Senor Polo and subordinates information. He fell inder the suspicion of Chief Wilkie, of he secret service, who had him traced o Toronto, where it Is said he delivered nformation to a member of the former Spanish legation in Washington. I>ater a letter addressed to Montreal was Sn- ercepted and contained promises of urther information. SPANISH STOKV OF A FK.HT. Jne at t'ienl'ueeon Declared Very Dltu- t roils U> Our M«n. Madrid.
