The Spanish 1 ss footed up 400 kllled, 800
wounded and a property loaa of anjrwhere from

After the flrst lattle the Amerlcana were trr.it ;.

perlority was ln the shlps and the men, the lat?

Capc Haytien, Hayti, June 7, 10 p. m.?According to ihe latest dircct ad
vices from Santiago de Cuba, dated Monday at midnight, the bombardment,
which began at 7:45 a. m. yeaterday, and continued tintil 1050 o'clock in the
morning, was reaumed again for a short time about midnight
lt was then believed that the Ainericnns had ctYected a junction with the in
surgents near P.aiquiri, some distance east of Aguadorcs, and near the railway
line to Santiago.
ADMIRAL SAMPSON'S REPORT.
Washington, June 7.?The Navy Department rereived a dispatch from Ad
miral Sampson at 7:15 o'clock this evening, announcing that between 7:80 and
10 o'clock yestenlay morning he bombarded the Santiago fortiiicatinns and
entirely silenced them.
CERVERA'S ACCOUNT OF THK FIGHT.
Madrid, June 7, 7 p. m.- The following official dispatch has been received
fri-.m Aduiiral Cervera:
"Six American vessels have bombarded the fortitkations at Santiago and
along the adjacent coa^t. Six were killed and seventeen were wounded oh
board the Reina Mercedes: three officers were killed and an orticer and seventeen
men were wounded among the troops.
"The Americans fired fiftccn hundred shells of different calibrc. The dam
acre inflicted upon the batteries of La Zocapa and Morro Castlc was unimportant,
The barracka at Morro Castle suffered damage. The enemy had noticeable
AMERICANS AND INSURGENTS CO-OPERATING.
London, Tune 8.?A dispatch to "The Daily Mail" from Cape Haytien says:
"The American victory at Santiago de Cuba has clcared the way for the
entranre of Admiral Sampson and the destruction of the Spanish fleet. As San
tiajro's land defences are reported weak. it is likely the city will yield to a vigorous
attack.
"lt is reported that the commander of the Reina Mcrccdes second in eom?
mand in tho Spanish fleet under Cervera, was killed duringthc engagement. The
combined American and insurgent forces are entrenched near Baiquiri, with guna
mounted, in preparation for a further movement. From Spanish sources comes
a report that a party of Americans landed at Aguadorcs but whether it is true or
whai the result was is not known here."
