The event of the Week has been Gomez's splendid victory at Najasa, Puerto Principe. The details received so far are meager, the best report received here up to the present being Varelns" correspondence, published ln La Discussion, the best in formed independent paper in Hav ana. He Bays that Gen. Jumlocr Castellai.os left Puerto Friucipe on the 8th with 2,114 men, 342 horses, five mounted pieces of artillery and a section for same. On the 9th they encamped at u cat tie ranch named Saratoga, after exchanging random shuts with rebel skirmishers. About 4 o'clock p. in., the attack com menced by a charge of 1 ,000 rebel cavalry men, with machetes, which the Spaniards admit was made with great deciion. From that raoniintuntll the morning cf the 11th tbe Insurgents continued hamm ing tbe troops, killlngaiid wounding many. The story or Gen. Castcllanos, wbo com manded tbe Bpes ords. Is that tbaCubra charges were repelled either by artillery flreorby forming t he famous hollow squ.ir-s, which the Spaniards couoldcr unbreakable. FIGURES ON HEBZL LOSSES. Varela also states that the Spanish troops fired 50,000 cartridges and 30 shells, and tlie rebels 23,000 shots. Naturally ha figures the rebel losses from 400 to S00, and tlie Spaniards at 35, of which only four were killed and tbe rest wounded, more or less, including two officers, but he candidly confesses he has not been able to obtain information of the number ot horses or pack mules killed or wounded. From other reliable sources although in complete and lacking Important details It Is known tlmtGemez has only 1,00 men. It was known In the crty that Gomez was encamped at Najasa with that number of men. ln tbe first charge the Spaniards ad imttbatthere wasonly one thousand. Then the Spaniards Increased it to 5.0C0. Gen. Castellar.os' fcrces amounted to 3. tOO men. according to this version, which is about accurate -fcr no Spanish generJI, even less Castellano. who is an old war rior and knews Gomez's way of fighting would march at tl e head of l'.COO men to attack such a fcrmidable opponent. GOMEZ MAKES THE ATTACK. Gomez knowing of his rival's appro ich placed bis men in convenient positions, dividing his forces in small groups of 300 men each. As soon as the Spaniards were comfortably encamped In the ranch, pre paring for next day's attack on Gomez's stronghold at Najaa. the Cuban chief sud denly made his appearance, attacking tbeir . positions simultaneously on all sides. Taken unawares and completely sur rounded, all they could do was to defend thcmse'ljes from the continued charges, which, with marvelous military precision, were kept up night and day. without af fording the Spaniards a moment's rest. . Thanks to Gen. Godoyes' timely arrival with ,-00 men. Castcllanos wassaved from complete disaster, as undoubtedly he could never have extricated himself from the trap In which Gomez bad him. The actual losses on both sides have not been ascertained yet- It is only known that the Spaniards brought with them J wounded from the field of action, and w hcthcr tbey left any behind Is not known. Report has it that the total Spanish loss In killed, wounded and missing was over 1,000.
