London, May 17.—The Daily Mail says this morning: "According to the most trustworthy information the Spanish cruisers Cardinal Cisneros, Princess de Asturias and Cataluna are not yet ready for sea and therefore cannot have arrived at Martinique."

They have also been supplied with all the necessaries, including German ar- tillerisas." Washington, May 17.—An order posted yesterday morning- and signed by Secretary Long- relative to the publication of n,ews emanating from the navy de- .the effect yesterday of considerable curtailing: the supply of information that heretofore' has been rather freely given out. The secretary's order was directed to Captain Crowninshield, chief of the navigation bureau, and he in turn gave it effect by making an order in his own name that no person connected with his bureau in any capacity should have any conversation whateverupon subjects in any way pertaining to the navy with representatives of the press. As an offset it was ordered that bulletins of such facts as have actually occurred and are proper for publication, and are not connected with existing or projected movements, shall be prepared and posted on the bulletin board. And This Is the First Day's Budpet. The sum total of the information published by the bulletin board yesterday under this rule was a notice of the intention to start the Philippine relief expedition, and of the permission given to some foreign neutral vessels to pass the blockade at Havana. In explanation of the issue of this order the naval authorities say that some of the leading American newspapers have been so far lacking in patriotism as to print plans of campaign and projected movements of naval ships, with the result that the ,var board has been obliged to completely revise its plans in the knowledge ihat the Spaniards had promptly taken notice of the publications and were prepared to profit by them. Complaint was made to Secretary Long: that the newspapers were working injury to the government in such cases. Orgo of the Spanish Armada. Intimations have been received here that Captain General Blanco at Havana, s very short of ammunition, in which. :-ase the powerful batteries at the en- :ranee of Havana harbor of course would be deprived of a large part of heir defensive strength. This state of affairs may lead to some desperate at- empts at blockade running on the part if the Spaniards in the hopes of setting nore ammunition into Havana. It is >elieved that the supplies so frequently •eferred to as being on the Spanish fly- ng squadron are of this character rather than food supplies, which makes t all the more important that Sampson and Sch'ey should succeed in keeping- Admiral Orvera from reaching Havana r Cier.Cuecros. or any port in Cuba connected with Havana by rail. Coramo- lore Schiey probably is well down on he Florida coast now. His appearanca jn that side of Cuba would enable son to bring his ironclads with perfect safety into Cienfuegos on the :!i side.

Report of tbe Party That Went to Havana Under n >'lag of Truce. Key West, Fla., May 17.—The Uncas after leaving here at 1 o'clock on Sunday morning headed for Havana and spoke the Mayflower, which was acting as flagship of the blockade fleet. Lieutenant Brainard, U. S. X., special agent of the United States government, boarded her and handed sealed orders to the captain, who thereupon instructed the Uncas to hoist a white flag and proceed into Havana harbor. The Uncas then steamed towards Havana, and when within signalling distance of Jlorro Castle she signaled, asking for an anchorage. ' The castle signaled back that its commander was waiting for instructions and that the Uncas must certainly not anchor. After an interval a launch with the harbor authorities on board put out from the shore and took on board Lieutenant Brainard and Mr. Knight, the correspondent of the London Times, who had been chosen to negotiate the exchange of prisoners. As the launch was returning to tlie'shore she was met : by Captain General Blanco's launch coming out with the captain general's aide- de-camp and Mr. Gollan, the British consul g-eneraj. The boats drew together and a conference was had. Lieutenant Brainard and Mr. Knight were assured that Messrs. Thrall and Jones were absolutely -safe and were being threated with every consideration. It was added that Captain General Blanco was willing to release them the moment the United States authorities send him two Spanish prisoners in exchange, Mr. Knight was told he could not land at Havana from an American boat, in spite of the flag of truce, and it was explained to him that if he desired to reach Havana, he must go there on ,-i ship belonging to some neutral pnuvr. The Uncas then returned to K.--V West and delivered this infornm- tlnn tn- the department. It is understood Hint f.v» of ilie Snanisn. captives now in Port Mc'pherson, Atlanta, will be promptly s»nt down, and the exchange of prisoners will be consummated without further trouble. Hus*!n.n Kdltorial Opinion. St. Petersburg. May 17.—The Novoe Vremya. commenting upon the recent speech at Birmingham of Chamberlain, the British secretary of state for tbe colonies says: "We doubt if the United States desires an alliance, and question whether it would be agreeble to the other powers that the United States, after wresting- the Philippines islands from Spain, should afterwards sell them to Great Britain." The Novoe Vremya says that display of such an intention would be "sufficient to induce the powers to reconsider their neutrality during th« present war." Spain Seizes a Cable. Liverpool.
