MARY ATCHERLEY. Medical Attendant: DR. ATCHERLEY, M.R.C.S., L.R.C.P. She A CAPTAIN III Ki:. I Admiral Sampson Had th; lYan:ico ( oninuuJ. Admiral Sampson is quite known here. As captain he brought the United States cruiser San Fran cisco to this port and his daughter lived ashore at the time. This was seven or eight years asro. In a Leslie's "Weekly sketch of the man now so pro minent, it is written: It is little wonder that an officer who was unflinchingly just, as Samp son was, should inspire enthusiastic affection. When the order was receiv ed recalling him from Honolulu to take charge of the ordnance bureau at Washington, and the gig left the vessel, bearing her commander away1, the sides of the San Francisco sud denly swarmed with men and a cry of "Three cheers for Captain Sampson!" went up. All sea-faring men know that the proper response in etiquette to such an ovation is to give the order, '"Oars!" which means that every oar must spread out and hold the boat still in quick attention. But no order came from the lips of the iron-faced captain, and, looking at him in surprise, his coxswain (who fairly idolized him) saw that the chief was choked with emotion. "Oars, boys!" cried the sympathetic coxswain, "and three cheers for the San Francisco!" and the shouts were given with a will. While chief of the ordnance bureau Captain Sampson's health suffered severely from the close, sedentary habits which his duties imposed, and he tried to counteract the bad effects by all sorts of athletic exercises at home, swinging clubs, punching the bag, etc. He was exceedingly fond of lawn tennis, and was often seen playing this game with Secretary Olney. mMt SCHLEY WINKED THEN. NEW YORK, June 1. Captain Sigs bee, of the St. Paul, has related how j he captured a Spanish collier making for Santiago, and Schley argued the Spanish fleet was vaiting in some haven near Santiago until such time as a visit, fruitless in results, should be made by the Americans, when upon their departure the Spanish fleet would run into the harbor. On Friday night Schley ran within six miles of San tiago, and after circling around steam ed away in the direction of Key West. Schley returned to Santiago on Satur day and on Sunday started towards the harbor. Spanish troops could be seen through the glasses hastily pre paring to give the Americans a varni reception. When about Ave miles from the batteries the lookout on the Brook lyn reported the masts of two "war ships. Two torpedo boats -were also made out, and another vessel of the Viscaya style wa also seen. Arriv ing at the harbor entrance, when the ships could be seen from the deck, Schley turned his eyes from his glasses Ions en ou ah. to wink and say: '1 told you I would find them; they viil be a lone time setting home." Orders to man the port batteries had been civen and the men waited wun ira- - patience for orders to Are. The com modore. however, decided not to waste ammunition on th? batteries, end the men were greet ly disappointed for the lime being- It was evident irom in:' appearance of "the Spanish warships cn Sunday that they had either just entered the harbor, having learned cf the sup posed final departure of the American squadron, or had been hiding in the bay and had run down to get out early on Sunday morning. In any case it was excellent proof of the perfect Ion of S vh ley's tactics. ACCORDING TO SPAIN. HAVANA, June 1. The following Spanish account of the engagement off Santiago has been issued here: The American fleet, consisting of the Iowa, Massachusetts, Brooklyn, Texas, New Orleans, Marhlehead, Minneapolis and another cruiser, in addition to six small vessels, took up a position May 31 on the western side of the mouth of Santiago channel. ",z fre from t lie nrst live vese:s. The Spanish cruiser Cristobal Cclou was anchored toward Punta Gorda uid could be seen from the opn sea.' The fire of the Amer: in et was nswered by the Morro batteries and by the cruiser Cristobal Colon. The American Sett Sred seventy hots without causing the least damage. The bombardment lasted ninety minutes and the American fleet re tired with transatlantic steamer (auxiliary cruiser) damaged. Shells were seen to explode on the Iowa's stern and there was a fire cn board another battleship. Several pro jectiles fell inside the harbor, near the Spanish warships. There is great enthusiasm at San tiago and here. DESTROYED A BLOCKHOUSE. KEY WEST, June 1. United States auxiliary gunboat Uncas arrived here this morning from the Cuban coast. reports that on Monday last, when about a mile and a half west of Ma- tanzas lighthouse she sighted the Spanish ldn khous-1 on shore.
