Washington, May G. Secretary Long
said at the close of office hours yester
day that up to that time he had re
ceived now. rd fiom Commodore Dewey.
ITe added. howeverttm.Vrts were
prehension os cabe frQm M&
fiHa cut. and. furthermore, no fears
were entertained as to Commodore
Dewey's ability to maintain his posi
tion. There was no doubt, the secretary
said, that Commodore Dewey's fleet
had annihilated the Spanish fleet, and
with this much accomplished Dewey
was master of the situation at Manila.
It was suggested to Long that the shore
batteries at Cavite and the Corregidor
island might be a serious menace to the
American fieet, but the secretary did
not share this view, holding that the
strength of the Olympia and otherships
in Dewey's command was ample to
make him master of Manila bay and its

No news could be gleaned at the navy
department relative to the movements
of Admiral Sampson's ironclads, but
from the confident tone of the few offi
cials who are acquainted with thepolicy
of the department they are expectin
to hear very soon of news from his
pquadron almost as interesting and im
portant as that received from the Phil
ippines last Monday. A high officer of
the administration yesterday almost
demolished the theory that Admiral
Sampson was going to succor the Oregon,
now on her way from Brazil to join the
north Atlantic squadron. He declared
that the navy department was under no
apprehensions about the Oregon. That
left openas possible points of operations
for Sampson either Porto Rico or some
port on the Cuban coast, but just which
theory is to be accepted is not even
hinted at by the departmental officials.
First Action with the Cubans.
The government tug Leyden arrived
at Key West, Fla,, yesterday bringing
news of the first fight in which United
States and Cuban forces were engaged
together against the Spaniards. The
Leyden left Key West Monday after
noon with a party of insurgents under
General Baldamore Acosta, and In
cluding five Cuban scouts under the
leadership of Captain J. H. Dorst, of
the United States cavalry. The Leyden
also carried a large quantity of arms
end ammunition. The tug landed five
men with four boxes of ammunition
ard two horses. General Acosta also
landed and penetrated to the interior,
where he communicated with the forces
of the insurgents. The Leyden lay to
outside until 5 o'clock In the morning;
when observing a troop of Spanish In
fantry approaching she put to sea and
got safely away. The same night she
proceeded to Matanzas and Tuesday
afternoon landed another small party
Spanish Cavalry Swoops Down.
Here she was met by Acostaand about
200 Cubans, half of whom were armed
with rifles. They united with the men
on the tug and an attempt was made
to land the remaining arms and men.
when a troop of 200 of the Villa Vicosa
cavalry swooped down on them, and a
fierce engagement of a half hour's
duration followed. The Cubans finally
repulsed the enemy, driving them into
the woods. During this engagement
several rifle bullets went through the
Leyden's smokestack, but no one was
Injured. Rear Admiral Sampson hear
ing of the fight sent the gunboat Wil
mington, which found the Spanish cav
alry In waiting to welcome another ftt
j tempted Invasion. The Wilmington
promptly opened fire upon a number cf
' small housea marking the entrance to

shots, which Immediately drove bak

Washington, May C. A delayed din
patch from Havana dated May 4 and ,
copyrighted by the Associated Press
gives in detail the ceremonies at tha i
opening of the first congrers of Cuba
under the autonomous government, by
General Blanco. There was a proces
clon, an imposing mllifary display, and
the streets were decorated with flags
and banners. At 2 p. m. a salute of
fifteen guns from the Cabanas battery
announced the departure of the captain
general from the palaco. At the hall of
congress the members of the auton
omous government were awaiting the
captain general, and on his arrival there
another salute of fifteen guns was fired
from the fortress. Among those pres
ent were the officers of the British and
French cruisers Talbot and Fulton.
The captain general was received
with the greatest respect when he en
tered the hall, which was finely decor
ated. After taking his position the cap
tain general said in substance: "I take
great pleasure in seeing the representa
tives of this Island unite here for the
first time. In spite of the fact that the
United States has tried to impede the
re-establishment of peace, Spain has
fulfilled her promises of Introducing re
forms in Cuba, and was approaching a
reconciliation and the ending of the
war. But the United States, though
speaking of peace and autonomy, has
tried to prevent us from bringing them
about. If the declaration of the United
States had been sincere. Its guns ought
to be saluting today the first Cuban
parliament, instead of threatening the
lives of its members, and proving itself
so false to their policy, ambitions and
Spain has given the Island all she Is
authorized to do, for the purpose of re
storing peace, and without any condi
tions and Spain has declared
that it will be made more ample still, if
such a course is judged to be necessary
by the members of this congress. Itigid
customs and other rules were abolished
In order to help the reconcentrados, the
victims of the fight sustained by the
United States. We admitted free of du
ties the 'help' sent from America sent
for the purpose of Increasing the exist
ing discords. In short, nothing has been
left undone which might satisfy the as
pirations of the people, if compatible
with the national honor.
"On the petition of his holiness, the
pope, and the European powers, hostili
ties were suspended in order to treat
for peace; when, ignoring all this, the
president of the United States declared
that the autonomous form of govern
ment had turned out to be a failure
when parliament had not even been as
sembled and the ratrlots of the United
States were excited by the declaration
that Spaniards caused the Maine catas
trophe, forgetting the generous hospi
tality her sailors received here. And
now the United States is taking up
arms to impose its domination. Before
such an outrage Spaniards and Cubans
must unite to defend the fatherland, and
the reconciliation will be all th, fnor
Spain"and of the autonomy of Cuba all
have Spanish blood in. their veins or
were born on this soil."
When he had finished reading his
message Captain General Blanco
shouted "Vive Kspana," which cheer
was responded to with considerable en
thusiasm. The captain general then
declared the Cuban congress open and
administered the oath to the deputies
He asked all of them if they swore to
always defend Spain, and wasanswered
with a spontaneous "Yes." The mem
bers of the Cuban congress, previous to
the formal opening of that body, held a
meeting for the purpose of organiza
tion. Dr. Jose Cueto presided. Thirty-
seven deputies, of whom ten are Con
servatives, presented to the secretary
of justice, Senor Govin, their certicates
