It is generally believed, even by those wlid liuvo not'bofoie had great confi dence in tho American navy, that the wnr will soon terminate by ti complete victory for tho United States. Inter ference by thn PowerB will not be nt-to-iipted In such a case, except, per 1 u s, to the tneto extent of an effort, io save Spain the humiliation of direct ly uuihcssint; this country, by tender- Ing Hip good offices of tho Powers for tlio attnlnment of peace. Tho United States would not object to such a tender, but they would Inidst that the Issue bo settled exclusively between Amcilca and Spain. Assurances have been conveyed In an infotmal manner to the state de partment by one or two of the Powers oosscssIiik large naval strength that there Is no disposition to Intertero with the progicss of the wnr In the Hast. Thus far Hutopo appeals to have suf ficient confident e In the disinterested ness of tho United States to nwnlt the conclusion of hostilities before making nny represi ntatlons against the occu pation of the Philippines.

It has mnde prepaia tlons to have Its appioach delected by scouting ciuiseis, and to have Admiral Sampson engage the Spanish licet with a fighting lleet made out of the two squadions, with which he would be ex pected to oveiwhilm the Spanish ships The navv dcpaitment hopes that he will have the opportunity to do so, and that befoie the end ot the week It will be known that the Spanish licet is on this side of the Atlantic and that n one week fiom the bottle of Munlla Rear Admlial Sampson maj be lepoit Ing the second naval vittuiv which wilt end the war.

Roston Mass, Maj 2 The friendli ness of tne Poi tugui sc to the Unite d States is attested b the offer of one of the Islands forming the Azores gioup foi use as a t oallng station The offer was made this week bj a prominent man of Portugal lesldent In the Azores, through the Hoston commis sion flim of F O Houghton & Co, which has cMensive eommeiclal in teiests in the Islands Secretni Dong, In acknowledging the leceipt of the offer, states that diplomatic negotia tions aie necessaij before a eountty ran take steps tow aid acquiring a coaling station in another country's terrltoiy. He does not sav that such negotiations aie under way oi con templated. As it now seems piobable that a great battle will be fought in the mid Atlantic, there Is a chance to test tho friendliness of the Islanders still fur thei, for should one of our ships be come disabled while thus far out from pott she would have to make a pott In the Azores to repair the damages and take on coal and water sufficient to enable her to make a home port a privilege existing under the neuttallty laws.
