Port Au Prince , Haiti , July 28. It is rumored that Aux Cayes , President Simon's home town , has fallen into the hands of the revolutionists. If this is true , it is a severe blow to the administration. Considerable activity is noticeable among the soldiers in the palace grounds , the significance of which can not be learned but the stir is believ ed to have some bearing on events likely to transpire within the next few days. Advices from Port De Palx on the northern coast indicate uneasiness at that point and the American cruiser Chester has gone there from Capo Haitien. A crisis in the government appears to bo gradually approaching. It is impossible to say which revolu tionary party wil gain control at the capital in the event that Simon is over thrown. Leconte , who is in control of Cape Haitien , and is reported to have sent a force against Gonaives to occupy that town for him , seems to be the strongest rebel chief out side this district The American warships off the coast of Haiti began an active patrol of the country's Bhores. The scout cruiser Chester , which has been as signed to safeguard foreign life and property on the northern coast , sail ed from Cape Haitien for Port De Paix , where it is reported serlouo trouble exists. The gunboat Peorla is cruising down the western coast. Because of rumors of trouble nt Jeremle on the lower western coast , the gunboat Petrel hau been dispatched to that locality. The Des Moines nnd Petrel will look out for conditions in the south.
