An assurance was given that, if this privilege should be granted, the steamer would be forbidden by the French consul to land goods The matter was duly considered and it was decided that, without regard to the strict law of blockade, and as an act of courtesy, rhe request of the French government snould be acceded to. Orders were accordingly sent on May 2.

It is as follows: "lam much delighted at the action of the people and government of tho United States in doing Justice to the cause of this herolo and exhausted people. For me and in the name of my loyal soldiers, I authorize you to extend most heartfelt thanks for the protection which is offered us. It shall constitute a bond of solidity and eternal friendship between both peoples. I am ready, and thus I know my government will be, to accept the alliance which is offered us, and therefore 1 wait the of- nclal commissioned by General Miles Lieut Whitney of the Bureau of Military intelligence, to discuss the basis of the Piau of campaign to be adopted against the common enemy.

'Section 3, ThRt tlle Be it fur, be requested to cause this resolution to be communicated to Commodore Dewey, and through him to the officers and men under his command. The President's message to congress which called out the joint resolution of thanks to Commodore Dewey was as follows i his complete control. He has established hospitals within the American lines, where 250 of the Spanish sick and wounded are assisted and protected. The magnitude of this victory can hardly be measured by the ordinary standards of naval warfare. Outweighing any material advantage Is the moral effect of this Initial success. At this unsurpassed achievement the great heart of our nation throbs, not with boasting or with greed of conquest, but with deep gratitude that this triumph has come in a just cause and that by the grace of God an effective step has thus been taken toward the attainment of the wlshttl-for peace. To those whose skill, courage, and devotion have won the fight, to the gallant commander and the brave officers and men who aided him, our country owes an Incalculable debt. Feeling as our people feel and speaking In their name, I at once sent a message to Commodore Dewey, thanking him and his officers and men for their splendid achievement and overwhelming victory, and Informing him that I had appointed him an acting Rear Admiral. I now recommend that, following our national precedents and expressing the fervent gratitude of every patriotic heart, tho thanks of Congress be given acting Rear Admiral George Dewey of the United States navy for highly distinguished conduct in conflict with the enemy and to tho officers and men under his command for their gallantry in the destruction of the enemy's fleet and the capture of the enemy's fortifications In the Bay of Manila." Tuesday, May 10. The Spanish fleet, which sailed from Verde on April 29. ostensibly for Puerto Rico, arrived at Cadiz.—It was reported that Admiral Montejo was dead, tho statement being that ho was killed by Insurgents after the battle on May 1.—The war department chartered thirty steamers to transport troops to Cuba.— The transport Gussie sailed from Port Tampa for Cuba, carrying arms and other munitions for Gomez. A detachment of United Stales regulars accompanied the expedition.—All the regulars at Chickamauga were ordered to move south, there to be coalesced with the volunteer forces preparatory to the occupation of Cuba Secretary Alger and officials of the post- office department in anticipation of the early departure of troops, made arrangements for postal communication between this country and the army of invasion in Cuba.—There was a stormy scene between Monarchists and Republicans in the Spanish Cortes. It was brought out than Spain could not furnish the necessary supplies of coal and war munitions until credits were voted. The chamber voted the war credit. A cablegram from Cadiz, Spain says: "In well informed circles it is reported a flying squadron has gone across the Atlantic, steaming slowly to reserve its coal supply and with'its fast torpedo destroyers as scouts, so as to be able to ascertain the relative strength of the adversaries sent to meet it. The flying squadron will only accept tight \*th tolerable hope of success. Admiral Cervera with four captains on the cruisers and four lieutenants in charge of the torpedo destroyers are able officers with picked and trained crews. They carry an ample reserve ammunition and torpedoes In Spain their doings are looked forward to with even more eagerness than was tha news from Manila ten days ago." Tho Tories of Toclny. The opening of hostilities with Spain reveals in his true light the "patriot" who struts about In times of peace with a miniature flag in his buttonhole, and seeking whom he may devour—when thera is no one to devour. That noble band of human shysters, the thirteenth Infantry of Brooklyn, is chiefly made up of tho kind of patriots referred to. It has followed the example of the "dude" Seventh Regiment of New York city. A few days ago the governor ordered it out for service. The men—at least part of them —declined to enter into the volunteer service of the United States. They wanted- to put up stipulations as to when they should go and where and how and by whom officered and various other conditions entirely incompatible with military discipline. They were merely playing at soldier and when the blast of actual war blew in their ears they quit. The governor has issued an order to disband the regiment. He has done well, for an organization that is full of the pomp and circumstance of war in time of peace and will not show in time of war even ordinary physical courage is an organization that the state can well dispense with.
