No Kle.trlc Lights.
Last night, like many nights
past, Oceanic and Pacific Mail
wharves were in darkness, tho
electric lights being out, which
was very inconvenient with two
foreign steamers arriving. Fort
Surveyor Stratemeyer had previ
ously spoken to Superintendent
Cassidy about the lights, but Mr
Cassidy said it could not be help
ed, on account of tho lack of water
to furnish power. Some people
suggest that steam power be sup
plied to run tho light plant, or
that some othor arrangement bo
mado, so that light could bo given
in case of emergency.

after tho vessel left Sydney, the

Havana, May 15. The most im
portant battle of the Cuban war is
believed to bo the one which was
f onght last week nonr'Mnnzanillo,
Santiago de Cuba province, and
of which authentic news is just re
ceived. Colonel Ruiz was commander
of tho Spaniards, whonumbored
2000 men. The Cubans were led
by General Babi and Carlos
Garcia, son of General Calixto
Garcia. The battle was fought
two miles from tho town of Man
zanillo, and after a whole day's
fighting the Spaniards were un
able to rotiro by land to Man
zonillo and had to embark on tho
steamer Iteiua do Los Angoles,
making their escapo by sea. Only
1300 soldiers wore able to catch
tho steamer under the firo of the
insurgents. The rest of the
column of Colonel Ruiz was kill
ed, wounded or capttued.
The sensation produced by this
news in Havana is very great.
The Spanish forces under Colonel
Aguilar, numbering 1C00 men,

The Spaniards also loft their
wounded on the field and they
were cared for by a Cuban physi

doned tho field word wus sent to
Colonel Aguilar by Genorale Rod

his wounded soldiers. Ho did so
in the evening, nnrl ninatv-ninrht.
Spanish soldiers were carried to
uuines on Btretcners by a detach

Aguilar, which was escorted by

of a captain until they reached the
outskirts of tho town,
Uncertainties and a Cortnlnty.
The attention of tho public is
now fully occupied and diverted
in tho consideration and discus
sion of several important current
and prospective happenings. An
nexation, as yet unsocuro, Re
ciprocity threatened; tho coming
of the Naniwa, and her mission
after arrival; tho outcomo of tho
war between Grooco nnd Turkoy
and, whether or no, all Europo
will eventually become involved;

conjecture and uncertainty, and
whilo opinions aro freely offered,
none can accurately foretell tho
outcomo of any of these matters.

apparent, as each day pusses, that
Buffalo and Hoffbrau aro the
favorite brews, and it is gratify
ing that assurance is given that
regular shipments of these wholo

that thay will, as heretofore, be
