Cuiut'OA , W. I. , Oct. 7. [ Uy Mexican
Cable to the Now York Herald Special to
THU Bii.1 : News has been received horn of
thu complete overthrow of the do facto
Kovernmont of Venezuela In tno per
sons ot Vlllesas Pulldo and his min
istry. This was anticipated as , accord
ing to what I previously cabled you , the pov-
crinnoni troops that bed taken tholr position
near Lo < Tcques to protect the capital from
the Insurgent armv were engaged In bottle
by the forces of General Crespo , some 14,000
or IC.l'OO ' strong , and wore utterly routed.
The plaro whore tlio battle occurred was
at San I'odro , nn out of tbo way village. It
was n hot and bloody battle , but of short
duration. The ilttcontontod soldiers of the
rovcrnmotit armv were uo match for the
trained civilians of the gallant warrior Crcsyo.
Tlio wholesale desertions to Iho ranks
of the revolutionists added to the disco n-
llturoof Villosas I'ulluo's followers. Ills
generals made desperate efforts to rally
their mon , but It was a hopeless task. Dis
mayed by iho torrlbloonslaughtof the enemy
they wavered and Hod , after the battle bad
been raging only n short time.
AIiiSKKi'i'cil the Vaiuimslu'cl IMIC.
Tno' CrospUts followed up tholr advan
tage , using Runs and machottos to wreak
vengeance on tbo demoralized fugitives.
Many wore killed in the combat , the large
majority of losses , of course , being on the
government bide , and the slaughter which
characterized the pursuit of the unlucky
aoldleri of the administration was terrible.
In ttii ? way tbo number of killed and
wounded among the government troops
were far greater than those which thov sus
tained in the battle itself.
Vlllceas Pulldo's ' soldiers in their lllcht
throw their arm * away and scattered in all
directions , tholr solo idea being to escape
from the fury of their purjuors.
Besides the capture of an immense amount
of ammunition and arms the Crcspisls made
hundreds of prisoner.- ! . Among tlio latter
were many prominent loaders. Tbo moat
important capture was that of the govern
I'lTssliiR Hit AdxantiiRi * .
While these particulars of the Cresplst
victory bavo boon oolulnod hero through re
liable sources , nothing like a complete list of
tbo casualties can bo bad.
Without waiting to rest his tired but en
thusiastic men , General Urcspo Is re
ported to have given the order to ad
vance at once upon tbo capital. It
is quito probable that ho is now
in Caracas. There is nothing now to step
tils entry into that city except llio wretched
condition of tbo roads. It is tbo rainy
season In Vone/uela and the traveling is
very bad ,
General Crespo , I am informed , has no ono
left to oppojo him. His foes are dispersed
and Caracas Is ready for occupancy by the
revolutionary chieftain whenever he sect fit
to LeUo it.
The latest do facto president , Vllllpas
Pulido , has reinstated Palacio and quitted
the lopublic. lie took with him all bis cabi
net. As soon as the nowa of their dofoat-ut
San I'odro was received they held a hurried
consultation , and , in pursuance of apparently
Hilly prepared plans , left Caracas by a special
train. Upon their arrival at La Guoyra , which
was still in possession of their representa
tives , Villocas Pulido and hi * ministers
went aboard a vessel in the harbor.
It is rumored that they have sailed al
ready for Europe , but this is not confirmed.
1'iillilii'it l.nsl IIiKli-lliimltMl .lit. :
The last order of the do facto government
before It * ( light , was quito in keeping with
its other high-handed acts. Vlllcgas Pulido
cancelled the exequators of both the Ameri
can and lirltlsh vice consuls.
Of court.o it is dilllcult to got full dotaili :
of all that is now transpiring in the dis
turbed republic , but it eeoms certain that
Crespo's triumph Is now absolute ; that the
capital Is at hiu mercy , aud that tno revolu
tion which bas been so prolonged is now at
an end. _
