Mil in i: tu m Vera Cru/, April 24.?Old Ver Cruz is beginning to emerge from th battle of the last two days. Shutter arc opening, dark-eyed, indoler women with their hair hanging dow their backs are leaning from quail balconies and little tables under th arcades around the plaza are agai filled with a curious, cosmopolita crowd taking their refreshments. There was some sniping during th night, but it was quiet to-day, wit bluejackets and marines policing ever block. Admiral FletcherV. proclama tion in Spanish, assuring the peopl< that the occupation is temporary am civil officers shall continue their regu lax duties, was tacked up and read b; bewildered natives everywhere. Then are many of those quaint, serio comii little dramas inevitable in ??uch ? clash between people who do not un demand each other's speech nor way! of thinking. No stranger battle was ever fough than that of the last two days. Navj losses were ten times greater than ir the battle of Santiago, yet this is no war. While Mausers were cracking frorr housetops and closed shutters yester lay the young officers and men march ing against an enemy they could no see, the Mexican transport Zaragoza jammed with reinforcements, steamer into the h?rbor under the very guns c! the Dreadnoughts, any one of whicr could have crushed it as if it were a mosquito. As this is not war, the vessel could not even be detained, but was ordered not to anchor and. greatly to the chagrin of the hapless Federal soldiers on board no doubt, put about and wandered aimlessly to sea again. * - ?
