Tuerto Cwbello All Able-Hodied Men
Ordered L'nder Arm.
Pi krto Cahki.lo, Venzeuela, April 21.
this picturesque seaport is in a terribli
Btate of excitement over the utter rout of
the government troops on April 14. At sun
down on that date Palacio's army made its
final and futile attempt to dislodge a force
of insurgents nnder command of General
Mora, who were intrenched at a spot just
beyond Polito. Twice the government
soldiers had attacked the enemy and
failed to drive it from its position. Dis
couraged over their ill success Palacio's
troops -showed signs of panic, but under
the stirring appeals of their leader they
rallied and again charged the foe.
Defeated All Along the Line.
The encounter was brief but furious.
They were defeated all along the line, and
turning, tied in every direction. The in
surgents followed in hot pursuit, and did
not abandon it until the terror-stricken
government troops were well on the road
to this town. There were many dead, dying
and wounded left upon the battlefield.
Some of them were reljels, but the ma
jority of them were followers of Palacio.
The government troops did not stop to
carry their dead and injured from the
i-ceue of their rout, but straggled into
Puerto Cabello, startling the whole town
with their story of complete defeat."
Lost One-Third of the Force.
The excitement their presence caused
was further heightened by the arrival of a
train next morning with eleven dead or
wounded soldiers. These had been picked
up on the field after the insurgents had
retired. Nothing definite could be learn
ed as to the exact numlier slain, bnt it is
officially announced that the government
lost one-third of its force in the encounter.
Of this loss by far the greater proportion
was caused by desertions. As soon as
Palacio's men saw that they were over
come many of them threw down their
arn-s and went over to the enemy.
The at Puerto Cabello.
The news of the result of the battle
spread terror throdghont Puerto Cabello.
It was almost immediately followed by a
general conscription order. The town has
some 9.0HJ inhabitants. Every able-bodied
man among them has heen forced into
military service. Xoone has been allowed
to escai e duty. This state of aff.tirs nat
urally has had the effect of almost para
lyzing the commerce of the port. The
stores have all been closed, ihere being no
one to conduct their business. The public
gardens are deserted. Women keep within
doors, not daring to venture out except
when absolutely necessary.
Preparing to Iefend the Town.
The government immediately noon be
ing notified of the defeat of its troops or
dered detachments from all points to this
town. The day after the battle re-enforce-meuts
of 200 men arrived here from Yaleit
fia. which is twenty miles to the southeast
of Puerto Cabello and from LaGuayra.
Other small bodies are coming into town
daily from other points. As coon as they
arrive they are sent to the front.
Looking Hourly for an Attack.
Everyone here is expecting that Puerto
Cabello will be attacked at any moment by
the revolutionists. People are hurrying
from town to places of safety, taking with
them their movable property. Such of the
mili ary as have not been sent to the front
are iu the large garrisoned fort and bar
racks ready to be called out at the first in
dications of the enemy's advance. How
eqer, this may not occur yet, as the rebels
are now iu the best position to receive
arms ami stores.
