Tlie Spanish Oltlrer* Claim a Victory, but the People Don't llellevo It. Havana, Doc. 81.—Nows has been re ceived of movements by the tnsiirgonta which would indicate that their forces still overrun pretty much the whole of the province of Mntnnzas, and they seem to have an uninterrupted line of commu nication olenr across tho provlnoo and in to tho southern part of Hanta Clara to the eastward of the olty of Clenfuegos. Word has been received that General Valdez overtook the Insurgent bands of Gomez and Macoontthe Marla plantation, where thoy were found stationed In an advantageous position. Tho engagement which followed was evidently n hot one, tho lnsurgont cavalry making vigorous attacks upon the Hanks of tho Hpanish forces. The artillnry ilro of tho Spaniards proved oiToctlvo, and tho official report, whloh is nowrocnlvod, says that the insur gents took (light in two directions, hnv Ing been divided by the assault upon thorn. Thoy loft seven killed and many arms and carried away many wounded. It is reported that tho Hpanish forças wont in pursuit of the Hying insurgents and overtook them at the Caney planta tion. More tho enemy made n vigorous re sistance for an hour, but were finally cnmpollod to retreat, losing night klllod and carrying away their wounded. The troops, it is snid, lost 17 wounded. It is further reported that an engage ment is now In progress at n point be tween tho villages of Porioo, Cuevitns and Jovollauns between General Valdez and the insurgontforoes. Cuevitns, Pericoand Jovullanos are all to tho weBt and north west of Colon, and are from 13 to 30 miles nearer tho oily of Matnnzas and that much more remote from tho border of Hanta Clara than is tho village of Call mete, at which point tho Spaniards wore said to lmvo first engaged Gomez Inst evening. In splto of tho official report, tho bollof is entertained here that the Hpanish forees have again sustained n serious reverse, and that instead of the Insurgents being repulsed and routed the Spaniards are re tiring before their advanee. Thero are manifestations of grave unenslnoss in offi olnl circles, and the belief Is prevalent thnt the Insurgents Intend nnother oxton slve incursion Into Matnnzas province and westward toward Havana.
