Havana, Doc. 21 Christmas cvo !a
ushered In with something like, dismay In
the city .ind there Is apprehension hourly
gaining ground tint ll.iviinii will bo be
slcged by armed fores before Christmas
ilny Is over. The advance of tho Insurg
ents seemed nt latest ndvlcos to bo un
Interruptctl, thus contradicting a report
ent out during the afternoon that they
had been turned hick In 11 pitched battle
by Campos himself and wore striving to
iiinki; their way biek Into Santa Clara
This rumor Mated, In grout detail, that
GenetuI Campos, In person, at the head
of tlio Spanish forces bad succeeded In
coming face to face with Gomez and his
forces nt the plantation of Collsco, which
was In Humes. This plantation Is situ
ated twelve tulles from Cardenas and
tvvent-one miles from M.itanz.is. Tlio In
surgents, It was snld, were hrmmod In
and compelled to light, all retreat being cut
orf. Desperate engagements took place, the
combatants being surrounded liv tho
11 lines of tho burning plantation. Tho In
surgents, It was snld, were dispersed, leav
ing 700 dead and wounded oh tho Held. The
tioops' loss wns. It was reported, cum
parallvoly Insignificant, being only four

already stalled to Sablnalla del Incoin

who were supposed to bo making their
way back to Santa Clara province at their
This report had tho effect of greatly re
storing eonliilence here ntnl It wns general
ly believed foi a time that It Indicated that
(Some.! had given up Ills campaign for lack
of support in M.itunzas.
It Whs Only "Olllc-iiil Advices."
The details of this engagement had
hardly becomo disseminated tluoiigh the
elt. howevei, before there came in a
fuither lepoit that tho Insurgents were
matching toward Gunnabana and that Cap
tain General Campos had hastened to that
point to oppose the advance, thus 0111 1
more moving his liendipmrtrs westward
and ne irer Havana, as he had had to do so
often within the last few days. Uuaiiabana
Is only about live miles out of Mutunzus and
ten or tlfteen miles west of Collseo planta
tion, whero rsenoral Campos was said to
have won his lmpott.int victory over
Gomez In person. It became evident that
tlm reports of General Campos' socccsstul
stand and route of the liisuigents wns
either untoiinded or that the force he had
mot was merely a wing of the Insurgent
army sent to make a diversion, while the
main columns pushed on to the westward.
AH is confusion of mind here and the
authorities 1110 apparently all at sea as to
what will be the net step of the In
sutgents, whether M.itanzas will lie be
sieged, or whether the advance on that
point is morel .1 feint to hold tlio Spanish
forces there, while the Insurgent forces
make a wav once more In the west for Ha
vana, which Is less than llfty milts from
M.itanzas The near approach of the In
surgents to Mntairas has, In fact, had the
elfeet of concentrating all the available
Spanish forces at that town, and the eouii
tiy people for miles around have Hocked in

The odds against the Sp-inlards being
able to press on after the triumphant In

other waj.s done ovorjthlng lKwslble to

Washington, Dee. 21. Tho senate to-day
presented a Christmas picsent to the
South, as sMr. Hill, of New York, aptly
characterized the bill repealing tho pio
scrlptlve disabilities bill, passed nt the
close of the war, against the service of ux
Confedeiates in thu United States army
The isisage of such a repeal, without a
dissenting vote, In a senate having u Ite
puhllcun plurality, and with Northern s.-n-atois
taking tho Initiative, lent a graceful
ness, and slgnlllcance to the netlon In
marked contrast with former controversies
In coiigri-ss. The Southern senators, with
the exception or Mr. Daniel, of Viiglnl.t,
look no part lu uiglng the lepeal, nml
