Port au Prlace, Dec. 1.—E>rery hour brings the revolntionary army nearer td Port au Prince and a feeling of im- pendUs disaster has taken possession ot the people. The advance guard of General Antoni Simons forces is now not more than '2tt or 30 miles from this city and up to the present*the Insurgents have swept all before them. The government losses at Anse A. Veau on Friday and the rout of the loyal troops have caused consternation among the officials of (he government With po84il>ly the exception of Prerident Lord Alexia. Every effort to have him take bimaeif out ,ot the cooatry ilas prorso is fSUnre and the aged i^resldent, who has faced revolutions before announces his detenflina- tlon to fight to the last It may be that PresldentAlexis feels the oonfldence he expresses in his abll ity to cbeclc the advancing army but tjie residents of Port au Prince certainly are not of the same rolnd. Many of them are panic stricken and the great majority of the natives have closed and shuttered heir stores and iMisinesa housea and have put bars across the'doors and windows of tbeir residences. There Is an uneasy feeling among the foreigners, notf^ith- standing the presence in the harbor of the warships of the United States and France, from 'which forces unqiies tlonably will be landed if the insurgents succeed in passing the gates of the city or at the first sign of disorder an4 pillage. Flags of different nations are flying from the homes of many foreign reaidenU,. the markeU aije deserted and the oonntry people niloa whom the city depends. for ita sustenance, have fled precipitately'and refuse to return. Fine Rehearaal. One of the best rehearaals of the oratorio, "Blijah" occurred last nJ^t and those in charge are quite eathuil- astic over the outlook. Gard In .Oamett. S. A.
