The losses were: Spanish 4 —estimated killed and Wounded, 900; prisoners, 700; cannon captured, 18; battle standards. 4; rifles in Spanish arsenal, 5,000, with plenty of ammunition! Cubans killed and wounded, 1,500, which is 600 more than the Spanish loss. Gomez gave his men only a night's rest. Then leaving a garrison of 1,500 men he pus'h'ed' on to' the westi Those of his men who had no weapons were armed 'from the Spanish arsenal, so that in fighting men ho was nearly as strong as before. No sooner had the news of the fall of Santa Clara reached the planters round about than they began to flock to Gomez's standard. Every mile he went he got new recruits. He now has an army of 18,000 well equipped men and is undoubtedly marching on' Havana, slowly but surely, and his advance guard is laying in waste the country as tjiey proceed.
