Washington', July 1. The Spanish
steamer Villa Verde, which left Vera
Cruz, Mexico,'on J une 1(J, bound osten
sibly for San Domingo, has succeeded
in running the Cuban blockade, and
lauded a large cargo of supplies and
provisions on the island. The fact that
the vesel was preparing to nail from a
neutral port was know n here for fully
a week tiefore the steamer left Vera
Cruz, the mattfr Laving been ri ported
by Senor ( ipseda. charge d'fTairs for
the Cubans to the navy department.
Iu spite of the special vigilance of
the blockading fleet it is now known
that the Villa Verde landed her cargo
in Cuba. Captain Leris, one of the
mot able Spanish mariners in Mex
ico, boarded the steamer ostensibly as
a passenger, but it is now known that
he assumed charge of the steamer and
that Capt. I'resas acted as pilot. In
dications are that the cargo was land
ed at Uatabano or E:i Colma, on the
the southern Cuban coast. It was on
this account that the president's proc
lamation was issued extending the line
of the blockade.
In addition to what the steamer took
at Vera Cruz she is believed to have re
ceived additional supplies from Spain,
which had been sent to Myers Island
off the coast of Yucatan. Cubans re
port that Spain has a number of agents
at work in Mexico to secure aid for
their government, aud arrangements
have been made at Vera Croz for the
th equipment of blockade runners as
lor a as possible.

Kingston, Jamaica, June 30. The
Hying squadron, heretofore command
ed by Commodore Schley, has lost its
identity by an order issued by Admi
ral Sampson, and it has been merged
into the fleet under the admiral. . The
order caused considerable surprise on
board the IJrooklyn, which has been
the flagship of the flying squadron,
where ic was supposed th i-quadron
would remain intact, at least until the
fall of Santiago.
Commodore Schley has been assigned
to command the second squadron at
tached to Admiral Sampson's fleet.
From two Cuban officers, picked up
by thB Vixen, it has been learned that
Gen. Pando is moving eastward with
8,700 troops for the purpose of nrsistiog
the beleaguered city of Santiago. The
Cubans had come to Accerederos in
small boats with dispatches from Gen.
Ilios for Admiral Sampson and Gen.
Uabi. They report that General Pando
ha3 seveu battalions, numbeiing S.700
men, with cattle and a pack tiain with
cattle and a pack train with provisions.
He left Manzanillo on Tuesday, June
'22 to relieve Gen. Linares. His force
was moving at the iate cf twelve miles
a day when the messengers left, aud at
that speed he expected to reach Santl
ago next Sunday, July 3d.
The Cubans have a small force hang
ing on the Spanish Hank and rear and
harassing Pando's troops at every
turn. Manzanillo is 127 miles west of
Santiago and the roads are in bad con
dition. They say if Pando reaches his
goal it will be with less than half the
force he started with. The Cubans
who are harassing him only number
200 men, but in the mountain passes
and in the bush they are at a gieat ad
It is probable that immediate steps
will be taken to throw a force of our
troops between Gen. Pando and Gen.
Linares. Pressed a9 the latter is on
the east, he could not spare a man for
a sortie on the west.
Admiral Sampson has ascertained
that Cervera's fleet has moved iuo the
upper harbor of Santiago.
Gen. Shaf ter, in his dispatches to the
secretary of war, complimented the
Geet for its assistance in landing the
troops. With the soldiers landed from
the Yale Tuesday and Garcia'a army
transported from the westward, 21,000
men in all have been disembarked in
i the vicinity of Santiago.
Playa del Este, near Santiago, 11:20 a. m.
July 1. A general assault on the city of San

advanced and took possession of Cabona, a
'suburb of Santiago.
Morro Castle and the other forts and the
entrance of the harbor were bombarded by
our fleet. The Vesuvius used her dynamite
guns with good effect.
The Spanish fleet fired on the American
troops who were very close to the city
Hard fighting all along the American line
is in progress at this hour. Nine wounded
Cubans have been brought in.
NEWS RECEIVED AT WASH I NT TON.
Washington, D. C, July i. (Special) Secretary Aljjer has re
ceived the following dispatch frcm General Shafter, dated at 9:45
a. m. today:
Camp at Sevilla, Cuba, July r.--Action now going on, but firing
light and desultory. l?egan on right near Caney, Lawton's division,

Major General Commanding.
Sampson cables the navy department that he is co-operaling with
the army. This is understood to mean that the American lleet will
force an entrance into the harbor at once.
A later dispatch from Shafter says that fighting began at day
light. The right wing engaged the enemy, fighting stubbornly, but
being gradually driven back. '
The latest advices from Shafter indicate that his idea in forcing j
