Manila, Feb. 0.-7:15 p. mn.-.Owing
to the area embraced in the ceno of
Sunday's engagement, a semi-circle
if fully 17 miles, details regarding
individual fighting have been ex
tremely difficult to obtain. so far

the north side of the Pasig river.
The American outposts r.turned
the fire with such vigor that the
Filipino fire was checked until the
arrival of reinforcements.
All the troops in the vicinity were
hurried out and the Filipinos consed
firing for half an hour, while their
own reinforcements came up.
At 10 o'clock the fighting was
resumed, the Americin firing line
consisting os the Third artillery, the
Kansas and the Montana regiment,
the Minnesota regiment, the Penn
sylvanians, the Nobiraskans, the
Utah battery, the Idahos, the Wash
ingtons, the Californians, the Fourth
cavalry, the Nor h Dakota volun
teers, the South Dakota and Colorado
regiments, the Sixth artillery and
the Fourteenth infantry.
The Filipinos concentrated their
'forces at three places, Caloacan,
Sunta Mesa and Galingatan, and
:maintained an intermittent fusillade
.for some hours.
They brought artillery into actiou
at Galingatan at 10:30, but only
one gun annoyed the Americans to
amy appreciable extent, a howitzer,
o' the road beyond Santa Mesa. The
Third artillery silenced the Galinga
tan battery by firing two guns sim

mediately by volleys from the infan
At about midnight there was a
lull in the firing, lasting until 3 :45
a. mn., when the whole Filipino line
* reopened fire into the darkness for
20 minutes and then there was
another lull untill dtaylight wvhen
tho-Americans generally advarud.
During the night, in response to
Rear Adm irial Dewey's signals flashed
across from (Cavito, the United
States cruiser Charleston and the
gunboat Concord, stationed at Mala

their secondary battery into tihe Fil
ipino trenches at Caloacan..
After daylight the United States
- monitor Monadnock opened lire oif
Malato and kept shelling the Filipino
left flank, while the other vessels
shelled ' enemy's right flank for
several hont s.

Sunday's work was driving the Fili

The Fili)pinos concentrated in Paco

made a idotermuined stand in the up

aians stationed on a neighboring
bridge maintained a hot fire on the

I have frequently noticed that
when old soldiers and sailors meet.
for a talk about the civil war they
a )netime forget the revenuo duo the
d vinity commonly spoken of as the
Goddess of Truth. For my part, I
have heard events that occurred un
der my own eyes described in such a
way that I failed to recognizo them.
Wo do not yet know with certain
ty the facts of the battle of Water
loo, and as to Chaicellorsvillo and
Gettysburg, although I witnessed
both. I sometimes think, in view of
tho liblsoltit.4-ly irrooeilable accounts
we iave of those two engagements, a
Bishop Whatley pht readily create
historic doublts !S to whether either
wis in faict fought.
- With the full knowledge of this
tendency to error I will give you as
accurately as I can an exact narra.
tive of the circumstancos attending
the surrender of Clon. Lee's army at.
Appomattox, Its they fell under my
direct observation. I will exclude
everything not immediately connect.
od with the great event., as I am con
vinced that it possessed sufficiout
interest in itself to render comment
unnecessary, if not inappropriate.
There is one very important mat.
ter I wish settled at the outsnt, how
over. It is this: Gen. Leo did not
meet Gon. Grant in the McLean
honse on the morning of April 1,
1865, for the purpose of then and
there effecting a surrender of his
army. On the contrary, it was sim
ply for the purpose of hearing
Grant,'s terms. As a matter of fact,
if they had not suited .Gen. Lee ho
would not have accepted them; but,
G rant's offer was so liberal, so nag
nanimous, and so chivalrous that it
was accepted forthwith. It is well
to add that had Gon. Grant's terms
been less favorable than thoso he
made, Gen. Leo would not have ac
cepted them, no matter what the cir
enm1stances might have been. We
had become accustomed somewhat.
to deal with desperate circumstances.
ciloss8;i HwonIDs wITH PORTE I.
I wish to have another matter un
d.arstood before beginning a consecu
I tive narrative of thbe sur-rendler. This
,is in regard to (Gen. Horace Porter's
statement, muado repeat edly, orally1
and in writing, that Geon. Lee offe
, ed juis sword to Grdut. Lee never
offered his swordi to Grant, and the
latter never refused it. It was with
the great Southern chieftnain from the
time he greeted Grant in the Mc.
Lean house until he rode awvay, and
tihe only time a mention of at sword
was madle was when Grant apologized
to LeIo for his dr-ess, explaining that
it wsas not p)ossible for him to got nc
cess to his batggage and at the samo
time keep the aplpointment. T1he
terms' of caplitulation exp)ressly ox
ScOpteid sidle arms, and in view of that
rfact it wonld have been a most un
usual procedure for Glen. Lee to
have offer-ed his swordl to Grant.
Thease matters are unimp lortalnt in
a them-nselvyes, but it is well for the
r sake of history to have thenm cleared

that the men and ollicers surrender

HOPE Nor AnANDONED.
Even after this correspondeiev
Gen. Leo did not, abandon hopes of
