EDITORIAL NOTES. Gen. Blanco talks like a man whose name bhould be Bunco, but he can't play Unc.e Sam for a jay. Everything comes to those who wait?even the invasion of Cuba by our troops. The General deficiency bill to be passed by this Congress will break the lecord, by carrying appropriations for more than $200,000,000. It would require ' a much more ex? tensive war than the present one to prevent the "sweet girl graduate" hav? ing her annual inning. The U. S. Cruiser Columbia hasn't had an opportunity to tink a Spanish ship, but she sunk a British merchant steamer, in a collision in a dense fog, just outside of New York harbor. John Sherman hasn't filed any specific kick against his treatment by the Hanna-McKinley-Day combine.but his hint that he would accept a nomi? nation to Congress is signficant. Mr. Henry Norman, editor of the London Chronicle, who is now in this country, writes like a'# man who feels slighted because be has n-.t been asked to participate in Mr. McKinley's cabinet councils. Strict censorship cf war news at Washington has driven several of the most imaginative correspondents into manufacturing-lhe details of an Atglo American alliance, offensive and de? fensive, upon which, in their minde, negotiations have been opened. It is gratifying to know tbat Com? modore Scbley really has that Spanish fleet penned up in the harbor of Santiago de Cuba. The fact has been officially announced at Washington. Moncure D. Conway has taken the rostrum as an advocate for more per? sonal liberty for Americans. He says the absolutism of a majority, which we now have, is insufficient, and that nothing short of the right cf a man to do exactly as he p'eases, provided ho doesn't into,fere with the equal rights of others, is real personal liberty. It would be too bad if the quarrel between Secretary Long and Attorney General Griggs, which began on ac? count of the defense by each official cf bis department in connection with the handling of naval prizes at Key We6t, should result in another break in the Cabinet. The young swells, many e f them sons of rich men, who belong to the Michigan Naval Reserves, now man? ning the auxiliary cruiser Yosemite, lying off Old Poiut Comfort, Va., ob? jected to the enforcement of the rules of the hotels there, aga n.t allowing privates admission to the hotel wine rnom.andjfts tho objectors had pocketu. full of money and tho deslie to tpend it, the hotel keepers abolished tbe rule so far as the Michiganders are con- i cerned.

Port Antonio, Jamai?, J''n0 3?(De? layed by t-i_tii!_m-8.ion). A single deed of magnificent American daring has lost to the kingdom of Spain the po wt r ful fleet of Admiral Ct 1 vera. Just before dawn to-day Keven gal? lant seamen took -he o .liter Merrimac under the blazing )l rro battery and anchored ._?d sunk her beneith a spiteful fire of the musketry and heavy cannonading from the shore, and the wrecked h i'of the sunken vessel ef? fectual}- c'osed tbe entrance to tho harbor within which the Spanish equa 1 ron is bo^eles-ly and helplessly locked. This splendid Btroke, which leave? the government at Washington freo to act without further fear of the Span? iards' fleet, was planned by Lieut. Richmond P. Hobson, who commanded the expedition. He is a naval construc? tor, attached to the Annapolis, an 1 his home is in Brooklyn. With him went DauM Montague, George (barrette, J. E. Murphy, Oscar Deignan, John P. Phillips, and John Kelly, all non-com? missioned offices or enlisted men. A 6team launch from tho flagship New York, commanded by Captain J. W. Powe 1, followed the Merrimac to the mouth of the harbor, despite the fire from the forts, cruised in the vi? cinity for an hour and a half after Ihe collier was sunk, but no sign of the brave Americans was seen, and Cadot Powell was finally compelled to rejoin the flagship. IMPOSSIBLE TO TAME FLIET INSIDE. The plan to block the entrance to Santiago has been under consideration for several days, as Rear Admiral Sampson had decided that it was im? possible to take his fleet inside. Lieut. Hobson had expected to do tho work Wednesday night, but owing to the delay in preparing the ship it was de? ferred. Tbe daring officer attempted to run it after daylight on Thursday, and was only stopped under protest after stern orders to return from the Admiral. All day yesterday the preparations proceeded and by nightfall the craft was in rea liness. A row of|torpedoes had been arranged outside the hull, so that Lieut. Hobson could explode them from the bridge of the vessel and thus insure her rapid sinking. At nightfall tbe various ships of tie fleet passed the doomed Merrimac, cheering her lustily. MERRIMAC 8TEAM1D FOB HARBOR. Soon after 3 o'clock tho black hull of the Merrimac began to drift slowly to? ward the land, and in a half hour was lost to sight. It was Lieut Hobson's jlan to steam past Morro, swing cross? wise the channel.drop h:s anchors, open the valves, explode the torpedoes on the port side,leap overboard, precod? ed by his crew, and make their escape in a little life-boat, which was towed astern, if possible; and if not, to at? tempt to swim ashore. All the men were heavily armed, ready lo mako a fierce resistence to capture. Scarcely had the ship disaaj.peared when a flash from Morro's guns pro? claimed that she had been discovered. Immediately the other batteries around the harbor opened fire, but the ship went steadily on; for thia morning the top of the masts can le s.en in the water beyond Morro and near the Estrella battery, A heavy cannon and musketry fire continued for about a half hour, and guns were fired at in intervals until long after daylight. None of the American ships dared to fire for fear of striking tho Mer-imac's crew. As daylight came on the steam launch could be seen cruising close to the harbor entrance, Until 5:30 the search was continued, and then, under a shower of Spanish shells, which flew wide of their mark, Cadet Powell steamed away, and a half hour later boarded the New York, and reported to Admiral Sampson that he believed - the entire crew of Ihe Merrimac had been lost HOBBON'b WORK WEI.L POJ.E, Not one of them did he catch sight of. The Merrimac, he said, lay well aorhss the channel, her mast ehowing that c Lieut, Hobson bad dono his work well, i sinking the ship almost in tbe exact t .pot decided upon, The channel is not t aa wide as the Merrimac's length, and it is impossible gfor the Spaniards to raise or destroy the wreck under the juna of tbe American fleot. Admiral Cervera is no long?r a figure n the way. The cruisers Cristobal Solon, Infanta Maria Teresa, Vizcaya, iud Almiranta Oquendo are known to be inside and it is believed that two or :hree smaller warships, possibly tor jedo-boats, are with them. All the members of the Merrimac .xpedition are safe. Only two of I hem vere slightly injured, and their names ire not known. Lieut. Hobson was mt hurt. All of the Merrimac's men ire he'd as prisoners of war. Tbe news of their wonderful escape .as sent to Rear Admiral Sampson by .dm ral Cervera, the Spanish Admiral >emg to struck with the courage of he Merrimac's craw that he thought idmiral Sampson should know they ad not lost their lives. Admiral Cervera's chief of stafl", 'apt. Oviedo, boarded the New York wi nder a flag -of truce, bearing the an ounce merit of tbe safety of tbe Mer. mac's men, and returning with a I -j; ippb' of provisions and paoney fer ' te pri-nmOM-.

New York, June 7.--A special dis? patch from Cape Haytii-n, deecribing tho bombardment of Santiago de Cuba on Monday say* that the forte about the harbor are now a nctaae of ruins. The .Vorro is a shapeless pileof min? ed masonry and di mantled .guns, and the Estrella battery is utterly ruined. At Port Aquadoies the fort recently constructed by Colonel Ordonez, Uta famous artillery expert, was blown to dust, and Ordonez himself was kully wounded. Two artillery officer*, tvro infantry lieutenants and twenty-one privates were fatally wounded. WRECKED THE Ml'.lll I.UKS. Later in the day the American ships moved closer toward the mouth of the harbor, where the old cruiser Reina M er cedes had been discerned attempting to place explosives about the hull of the Merrimac to blow her to pieces and clear the channel. A 13-inch shell from tho Oregon landed squarely abaft her pilothouse and tore all her upper works to shreds. Her "second commodore," five of her sailors and a marine were killed, and a second lieutenant and six? teen of her seamen were very seriously wounded. MIOWBR OF SHOT AND 8HEI.T-. A perfect shower of shot and shell fell upon and around the old cruise]*, and she was so badly damaged that btv crew, by orders of Admiral Cervern, abandoned her and sought the shore for safety. SPANISH LAND FORCES DEFEATED. About noon, according to the Cape Hay tien dispatch, a landing party of American marines near Daiquiri was attacked bj Spanish infantry nnd a squad of cavalry. The insurgent!*, were posted in the neighborhood, und with their aid the marines successfully took nj) a position, holding it and later milk? ing it a base from which they Operated. The Spanish force was defeated with heavy loss and driven buck toward San? tiago, leaving their wounded behind them. TO BESIEGE THE CITY. The Americans are now entrenched near Daiquiri und are landing heavy guns, preparatory to moving them to? ward Santiago and laying siege to the city. There is a panic in Santiago The residents who can leave ure fleeing to the country, joining the insurgents ar doing anything to get away from Un? certain destruction that now awaits Cervera's fleet and the forces of Pando and Linares. IMMENSE DAMAOE INFLICTED. The Spaniards admit that the bom? bardment from the American Meet was most destructive About 1600 projec? tiles are said to have been fired by the American warshps, and it seems that the responsive fire from the forts und ships was scarcely felt at all by the Americans. RIDDLED WITH SHOT AND SHELL The fortifications near the entrance of the harbor ure described as beingrid dled with solid shot and shattered by the explosion of the immense shells fired bv the American battleships. The Spanish batteries are understood to have been virtually silenced and El Worro nnd the fortifications at Soeopa and Panta (tonia are reported to have been demolished by three hours' un? interrupted hammering of the American fleet. CUBANS ATTACK UV LAND, It is also understood hero thal 'lie Cuban troops maintained throughout the greater part of yesterday an attack by lund on Santiago ar.d the Spanish reports say tho garrison lost lieuvilv in killed und wounded. The loss on the American side, the Santiago reports say, iu not known. lhe Spaniards acknowledge that a gnat deal of damage was inflicted on ihe Spaniel] cruiser Reina Mercedes, and they sav Morro Castle shows great gap ng breaches it its wa'ls. MARIA TERESA REPORTED SINK. There is a report current at Cape Haytien that the first-class armored Spanish eruisui* Moria Teresa was sunk resterday by tho fire of (hf American hips. It is said that .r)00 American troops vero landed at Daiquiri, or possibly at laguadores, the two places being seem ngly confused here.
