Dear Sir: The Secretary Disc Plow I pur chased from, you is giving us satisfaction. We are using it to plow under a crop of lupins. They are three feet high and very thick. Your plow turns them completely under, at the same time plowing the land fourteen inches deep. I feel satisfied that with this plow the draft for the same quantity and depth of work is as 6 to 8. That is, with the old plow, to do the same work, it takes 8 good mules; with your plow it takes only 6, and they are less tired at night. Please send me another plow by first schooner leaving for this. You are at liberty to use this in any way you may see fit. Yours truly, A. LIDGATE.

Making; Active Preparations to De fend llavaua TAMPA, April 22. I am informed by an intelligent Englishman who left Havana yesterday that Captain Gener al Blanco and the Spanish authorities have since the departure of Consel General L.ee regarded war as inevitable and have been bending extraordinary energy to the concentration of troops and supplies in Havana. Nearly a hun dred thousand troops have teen assem bled, of whom 40,000 are regulars and the rest volunteers. This disposition leaves Havana Province practically at the mercy of insurgents, who scorning the sham armistice, are reported un usually active. Several small engage ments have occurred within the last week in which the Spanish say they have been successful. General Blanco has openly announc ed his intention to defend Havana against the American fleet or army, or both. Another enrollment of volunteers has been made which includes nearly all able-bodied men in the city and province and 30,000 have been distri buted. The new recruits are being con stantly thrilled at night, and as a conse quence the city constantly resounds with war-like sounds. Residents of Havana exhibit enthusiasm and deter mination. Many of the wealthy classes are closing their houses and moving to the interior, anticipating a siege or bombardment. WAR NO I KS.

NEW YORK, April 22 The follow ing was received from a Washington correspondent late tonight: Secretary of State Sherman is expected to resign from the Cabinet in the near future. Mr. Sherman has had very little to do with the importnat actions of the State Department during the crisis with Spain, and it is stated on high author ity tonight that a change in the Sec retaryship has been decided upon, and that it will possibly occur within the next week or ten days. It is under- stood that Assistant Secretary of State j Day is to be promoted to the head of the Department. ! liattle Story Not Confirmed. JACKSONVILLE, Fla., April 22. A special to the Times-Union and Citizen from Lantana says: "An eye-witness has just arrived from Boynton and reports a supposed transport vessel southward bound, guarded by a man-of-war, pursued by a monitor, keeping up a heavy running fire."
