THE LATEST NEWS OF WAR IN CUBA. A T.t'ltrr I'roiii W a l l e r Krmvn.ol the l:ir Army -- A Kcport Denied. SpLcial dispalcl] lo the JOUK.NAI.. riMOKio, JUXE 17.-- There was a stampede of horses and mules at Tampa last uight. The c a m p was wrecked, but no one was h u r t . The i n s u r g e n t s have Manila at their mercy. The Spanish can get no food. Fighting has been iu progress for thirty-sis hours. In a recent letter to his father, JamosII. B r o w n , of this place, Walter Brown, a member of C o m p a n y A, Seventeenth Regiment, U. S. Infantry, then iu camp at Tampa, describes an engagement with the Spaniards on Cubati soil. This experiment, it will be noticed, did not fill young Mr. Brown's soul with fear of the Spaniard as an antagonist nor with elation at the prospect of having the Cuban as an ally. Defining some of .tho soldier's duties, Mr. Brown spoke of digging trenches, and said: "We use our bayonet for a spade and our coffee cup to throw the dirt out with. We dig them from two to three feet deep aud t h r o w the dirt up in front of us, aud after we get in there those Spanish devils w i l l n e v e r get us out. They haven't got nerve enough to charge ; they are cowards, aud the Cubans are not much better. I saw n specimen of thpir nerve a week ago last Tuesday. A transport loaded with arms and a m m u n i t i o n for Gomez left here, and three meu from each-company went with it. I was one from Company A, aud we had throe Cubans with us who wanted to go over aud join Gome/., aud who were to act as guides. We a r r i v e d ofif-the coast -of Cardenas about eight o'clock in tho m o r n i n g , but we c o u l d n ' t get very close to the shore on account of the coral reefs. So we had to shove the horses overboard and l a n d iu the small boats. Just as soon as we started for tho shdro we were fired upon by some Spanish cavalry hid in the bushes, and those C u b a n s j u m p e d out of the "boats and started back to the transports, squalling like kids. We fired and tho Spaniards started to run.' We chased them nearly two miles, and three of them wero killed--one an officer. Only one oE our boys was hurt. Ho was shot through the a r m , but it did not a m o u n t to a n y t h i n g . A ne\vspa!per reporter was hit iti the leg. I am not bragging, but our boys w e n t t h r o u g h j u s t as cool as could be. Their volley Bring and firo-at-wiil was doue just as i£ we had been at drill. I tell you that Spain is out of luck ! But wfe had to b r i n g the arms back to Tampa, as wo could not find any of the Cubans who were to meet us. So the trip didn't do any good, except iu experience."

The Spaniards lost many men. It was stated yesterday t h a t t h e Spanish were massing for an attack upon the brave marines, but if t h e y do the probabilities are that they will receive a warm reception. The Americans w i l l be reinforced by men from the ships, which will be positioned so that t h e i r powerful guns can com maud tho country around. General Shafter's army is about due, too, and if it should arrive tho attack will most probably be postponed. On Thursday Sampson again bombarded Santiago, with tolling effect.

A "I'Jower Mission" To tlio Editors of the To the readers of your valuable paper, I w o u l d l i k o to say ;i few words in regard to what is k n o w n as "Flower Mission Day" at the Kent county, Del., almshouse. It is held on the Oth of June of each year, aud is tho source of so m u c h joy to tho inmates that the thought presented itself to my mind, Why not have something of tho kind in Caroline ? Of course, having lived iu Caroline for eighteen years, it is n a t u r a l to feel interested in that particular county. I want to tell you something of tho way "Flower Mission Day" is celebrated, and I am sure there are enough loyal members of tho Christian Endeavor Societies and Epworth Leagues of Dentoii aud adjacent towns to engage iu this good work. Seats are erected uuder the shade of the large trees in tho -yard, aud the inmates, both white and colored, occupy them. Preachers from thediffiereut churches are there to give good talks, an organ is on the ground and excellent music is rendered, with singing of familiar hymns. But the most important feature of the occasion to those people is tho distribution of gifts to them, brought out by the'W. C. T. U. of Dover, aud others who care to participate. They are presented with oranges, bananas, candy, cakes, crackers, packages of tea and coffee, aprons, handkerchiefs, bdoks, papers, and bunches of flowers with scripture cards attached to them. How their faces beamed with delight asjthey received these gifts I Then the thought caino to my mind, What a grand work these Christian people are doing ! Of course these poor, afflicted people look forward to "Flower Mission Day," and it is a bright spot iu their (.monotonous lives. Now, Christian Endeavorers of Caroline, don't sigh any longer for some good work to perform', but try t h i s and see if you will not benefit yourselves, as well as make other hearts happy. OBSERVER.
