Ui.lf iA General MacArthur's advance
beyond San Fernando showod that tho
Americana covered fivo miles at the
first live hours and at 2 o'clock had ad
vanced Mix ruiloH ulong tho railway,
stretching on each sido of it for two
miles and resting at night throe miles
from Angeles, which will be made tho
northern base of operations Instead of
San Fernando, whom a garrison of (00
men haa beon left. The Filipinos'wero
surprised, expecting tho Araorican
forces to movo against Tico. They
followed their usual tactics of holding
their trenches until they became too
warm and then retreating in disorder.
They arc now falling back westward
toward I'orie.
Tho Twelfth and Seventeenth regi
ment had tho sharpest engagements.
The country our troops passed over
if. covered with rico holds and bamboo
thicket, tho hardest possible ground
for marching. Tho mud in places was
k nee deep.
He ports from rebel sourcos say 150
Filipinos wero killod in Gonoral Hall's
engagement at Calamba and in the
subsequent skirmishes.
The American loss in the fighting
about San Fernando at 3 o'clock was
known to be eight mon killod and
twenty six wounded. . Tho loss may
possibly i-xeood theso figures, as tho
line, is live miles long and it is impos
sible at this hour to hear from every
WhIIIiik I or thai Artillery.
Our troops are now about Angeles,
waitintr for tho artillery, which has
tho greatest ailliculty in moving owing
to the wet ground .
Tho attack was opened at 5 o'clock
in the morriintr, h battery of tho First
artillery shelling Itacoloron tho loft.
Simultaneously Hell's Thirty-sixth in
fantry struck Hacolor from the rear
and drove the rebels out. Armored
cars, each with a six-pounder and two
(S.itling revolving cannon on board,
were mounted on the ra'lroad track in
tho center of our linos. Soon after
ward these juns did sharp execution.
Battery M of the Third artillery
and 10i m n of tho Iowa regiment
made a feint toward Mexico, while tho
main body of troops, consisting of tho
Iowa region nt, tho Seventeenth regi
ment and a battalion of tho Twenty
second under General Wheaton, on
the right, and tho Ninth regiment,
Twelfth regiment and Bell's regi
ment, under General Liscum, on tho
left, advanced steadily, pouring their
fire into the rebels and receiving a
heavy fire in return.
The rebels wero well protected by
trenches and seemed not to lack am
munition. But they were unable to
withstand for any length of timo the
hail of shot our artillery and infantry
poured in on them and retreated, leav
ing tlend and wounded on the field. A
dtzen prisoners wero captured by our
Tho reports indicate that the Ninth
infantry suffered the most, though the
casualties of all tho regiments aro not
yet reported.
Tho weather was extremely hotand
our troops suffered greatly. But there
was no faltering.
A company of the Sixteenth regi
ment went to the relief of Boll's regi
ment this afternoon.
The firing, except at isolated points,
had censed by 10 o'clock.
Oat After Angeles.
Angeles is one of the richest towns
north of Manila and is considered to
be a better baso of operations than
