whereupon tho Americans pursue them

Tho moral effect of the news thnt

been unquestionably great.
Tho insurgents nre suffering more
from disease than the Amorleans,owlng
to poor food, lack of medicine, and
filthy hospitals, with tho result that
there is great mortality among them.
A dispatch has been received from
General Otis confirmation of Monday's
news that Tnrlac had fallen ami that
Agulualdo had lied northward.
In conclusion he states: "Detach
ments scut north to San Nicholas, nnd
It is btilieved that Young has estab

troops last evening. Indications arc
that insurgents will not cscapo to

A British naval oflleor, who has just
returned to London from tho Philip

the situation there, of which ho takes
a somewhat pessimistic view. Ho
thinks that more river gunboats nre

Late Tuesday evening word was re

which indicates that Senator Hayward
is in a most precarious condition, and
that his death is to bo expected at any

was held and at its close it was given
out that that the physicians could hold
out no hope whatever of the senator's
permanent recovery, and very little, if
nny, of even a temporary improvement
in his condition.
There is no regular session of the
legislature this winter, nnd in cimj ot
his death the governor will appoint a
successor. It is universally conceded
that in this event Governor Poynter
would name ex-Senator Allen.
