There have been conferences between Estrada Palnm and other representatives of the Cubans with officials of the United States government relative to the Cubans and what-would be done with them. Mr. Palma was advised that the ,United States would not consider the question of compensation of the Cuban troops, because there was no power in the government to do so, even if there was an inclination. lie was told' tha the best thing the Cubans could do vra«, to advise the men in arms to disband, retire to their l.onies and engage^in peaceful pursuits. That the members of 1 he Cuban junta recognize that this is the only thing to do is seen in the fact that emissaries have already been dispatched to Cuba with avview of car rying out the desires of the United States government. These emisaries will try to persuade the Cuban leaders that resistance to United States au thority would result, only In. further disaster and distress to Cuba. THE MILITARY COUMI.SSIOX.

De Staule, the Russian ambassador to Great Britain, according to a special dispatch from St. Petersburg, will shortly retire from London and be succeeded by Count-Cassini, Russian ambassador to the United States. Washington, Aug. 18. The report from London that Count Cassini, Rus sian ambassador here, will shortly be transferred to London excited much interest in diplomatic quarters, as it was felt to have, an important bearing on the Chinese question, which has re cently reached an acute issue between Russia and Great Britain. Count Cas sini is probably the best posted public man of Russia concerning Chinese af fairs, as he was for five years Russian ambassador to Teking prior to coming to Washington.

Cant. Bloreu, tCho I* a Member ol tlie^Qoi-tes, XVill Be Giveu His free dom—Will Go Home and Tell of the Generous Treatment He And Other* Dave Received. Washington, Aug. IS.—Admiral Cer vera will not return to Spain for t£e present,- and reports from Annapolis stating that he would leave for Wash ington are-said at the navy department to be due to misapprehension. The admiral has made no application to leave, and it is the belief that he will be the last of the Spanish prisoners to go home, as he has shown a father ly regard for all the other officers and men and appears to be desirous of see ing them on their way homeward be fore he leaves. The navy department has not taken up the question of the final disposition of the Spanish prison ers, although it has passed upon one qr two special cases in which the cir cumstances made speedy action ad rvisable. One of these was the ease of ffDf. Jurada, the venerable Spanish If-naval sure-eon. hold with the other jra Spanish prisoners at Annapolis. The doctors reported that Or. .Jurada was very feeble and that whilo ho might be able to reach Spain if released now, he would not be-able to nia.Ue the trip a mojith'heuce. The navy department accordingly directed^S|^j^»elease, and the Spanish chaplain will be allowed to accompany Dr. Jurada to Spain. The ease of Capt. &orcu, commaifder of one of the cruisjj/s of 'Cervera's fleet, has also received special action by the de partment. It appears that Capt. More'ti is not only an oilicer of the navy, but is a member of the Spanish parliament. With the prospect that the parliament would reassemble at an early day, Capt. Moreu was desirous of returning to Spain and participat ing in the sessions. In particular he expressed the desire of telling the Spanish parliament of the generous treatment accorded to him and' all other Spanish prisoners by the United States. The officials here felt that sueli a statement from ('apt. M,oreu could but have a salutary effect. Ilis release was accordingly ordered. DEWEY HAD THE FIRST AND THE LAST NUMBER ON THE PROGRAMME.

IS.—The war de partment Thursday made publio the order sent to Gen. ^lerritt regarding the occupation of the city of Manila by the American forces. The order follows: "Adjutant General's Office, Washington, C., Aug. 17, lKtt.-Maj. Gen. Slerritt, Manila, Philippines: The president directs that there must be no Joint occupation with the Insurgents, The United States, in the possession of Manila dity, Manila bay arvi harbor, must presefve the pea^ce and pro tect persons and property within the ter-r ritory occupied by their military and naval forces. The insurgents'and all others most recognize the .'military occupation and au thority of the United States and the cessa tion of hostilities proclaimed by the pres ident. Use whatever means ip your judg ment are necessary to this end. All law abiding people must be treated alike. "By order of the secretary of war. "U. C. CORBES", Adjutant General." Want Xo Trouble witli Reliei.H. rru~ of the deoartmeht lioria there may be no trouble witn tne in surgent forces in the Philippines, al though the dispatches which have been received and published iu the press together with the de mands of Aguinaldo for' J°'nt oc cupation have 'indicated a tem per on the part of the insurgent'lead-. era wlii-ch is not satisfactory. The text of the president's order cannot be misunderstood,-and the in surgents will be kept out of Manila, and the city, bay and harbor will be held as an Am or ft an possession. The possibility of an. attack on the eitv by the insurgent forces has been con sidered, but as th© insurgents, with the bay in possession of Admiral Be wey for three months and 10,000 American.j troops near the city for a month past, were unable to cause tin?surrender of the city, it is not believed that they will be very formidable against the forces of Gen.
