Washington, March 27.?The following Is the dispatch received from General Otis, referred to in the previous bulletlu. It reached Washington at 8:55 this morning: Manila, March 27.?Adjutant General Washington? MacArtbur boids Maliloa; severe fighting today and onr casualties about forty. The Insurgents have destroyed bridges, which Impaired progress of train and artillery. Our troops met the concentrated Insurgent forces nn northern line commanded by Agulnaldo in person and drove with considerable slaughter. They left nearly one hundred dead [on the field and many prisoners end small arms werd captured. Tbeooiutnu will press on In the morning. (Signed) Otis. Satisfaction 1e expressed at the war department with the situation in the Philippines. It is said that the dispatches of General Otis and the press reports show that the column is pressing steadily forward and that the troops are vigorously In earnest and in good condition. The belief Is expressed that the insurgents will soon get tired of being constantly fought, defeated and driven back with loss* Great confidence is expressed in the ability of General Otis to finish the war because of his determination to give the forces of Agulnaldo no rest. FILIPINOS DRIVEN* BACK. Aguloaldo'B Army Completely Runted By a FlyluK Colmnu of Americhu8. Manila, March 27.?(7:40 p. m.)?A thousand Filipinos, composing the rear guard of the rebel army, which is retreating on Malolos, Agulnaldo's headquarters, made a stand today in some strong entrenchments about Marilao, across tbe MarlJao river. In tbis engageraentslx Americans were killed, including three officers, and forty were wounded. Tbe American forces advanced from Meycauyan, tbe brigade commanded by General Harrison Gray Otis being on tbe left of the railroad and General Hales on tbe right. They eventually discerned white roofs and steeples among tbe green trees beyond tbe river, looking not unlike a Massachusetts village. The rebels had an unfordable river In front of them and tbey poured In a fire bo effective that It sbowed that tbey were veterans, probably members of tbe native militia whicb tbe Spaniards organized. The American artillery put a dramatlo end to tbe battle. Approaching under cover of tbe bushes to about sixty yards from the trenches, tbe artillerymen emerged upon an open space commanding the town. When the Americans appeared tbey gave a great yell and the Filipinos were panic stricken, about a hundred seeking safety In flight, while a white flag was raised by those who were In tbe trenches, who also shouted "Amlgoe." Colonel Funston, with 20 men of the Kansas regiment swam across the river to the left of tbe road bridge, and captured 80 prisoners with all tbelr arms. The Pennsylvania captured 40 prisoners. By this time the right of the Filipinos was demoralized. There has been heavy fighting all along the ronte today, about forty Americans being killed, and over a hundred rebels. General MaoArtbur's division spent the night and morning at Meyacauyan, tbe next station beyond Polo. After reconnoiterlng bis front, be puBbed along tbe railroad tbls afternoon towards Maiolo?. If the statement of tbe 85 prisoners captured today is true, tbe main ooay 01 loe enemy nan reireaiea iu Malolos. Bat there are no more trencher to encounter though over 30 villages, Including the larger settlements of Bulaean and Gudgulnto Intervene. At every railroad station circulars have been posted, signed by tbe Filipino commander-in-chief, Anionto Luna, ordering all spies and bearers of news to the enemy to be shot without trial, and Instructing that all looters and ravlshers be treated In the same manner. Further, all towns abandoned by the Filipino troops are first to be burned. While deploring tbe existence of war the circalar maintains the undeniable right of tbe Filipinos to defend their homes, lives and lands "agalost would-be domlnators who would Kill them, tbelr wives and oblldren," adding that this motive ought to impel all Flllpiuos to sacrifice everything. Tbe shelling of Paranaque was not premeditated. Tbe turret ship Manadnocfc anchored off tbe town and tbe insurgents, emboldened by the long silence of the warhlps on guard duty opened fire on her with muskets, with (be result that one man was killed and three were woanded. Tbe Monadnock then destroyed hair the town, including the church. The Washington replment bad an exciting a?nai?lflnrto onH HIcniuooH m nnh ffollcnfrv The soldiers found a band of Insurgents concealed In a stone house over which the French flag was flying. A private volunteered to set Are to the building. He did so and the troops iu>proaohed when It was burnlDg, and the Filipinos bad apparantly fled. But they were greeted with a sadden volley from the balcony of the house, resulting In the building being cleared Qf the enemy In short order. QUIET RESTORED AT ILOILO CommltleM of Natives and Americans Jointly Drafting a Constitution. New York, March 27.?A dispatch to The Herald from Hollo, Island of Panay.i says : The transport Indiana has arrived here wtlh reinforcements lor Negros' Island, where the situation Is still satisfactory. The rising of tbe hill tribes was of no Bpeclal significance. The commltteee of natives with Colonel Smith the American governor, presiding, proceeded with tbe work of drafting a constitution, taking the American constitution as tbe hARlnnfthA document. It has been formally proposed to raise tbe Island's revenue entirely from exports Instead of by tbe present method of levying upon land values and cedula peelsonae, tbus relieving tbe laboring classes as far as possible. Tbe natives desired limited introduction of tbe English system of education. A gentlemen who has had'exeellent opportunities for studying tbe political situation advocates a separate government for eaon of tbe Islands with a representative assembly at Manila for general control under tbe supervision of an American governor general, who shall be free lrom lnterierence from Washington except in regard to International questions. Tbe deputies for tbe Island ofNegros will meet on April 3 to dlaouss the draft of the constitution. TBOY'S GOSSIP. Preacher aud Congregation ? Per- i sonal Notes ? Marriages ? Light Fingered Gentry.
