Tl.e Btory of tho lnmlltig of the Amerlcan army near Santiago la told on pago two of thiB iBsue. Admlral Cervera telegraphed to Madrid tho Burprlslng lnforuiatlon that tho Amerl cans had offeoted a laudlng at a place elgh teen inilerf east of Sautiago, that he Im medlately mustered tho crows of hls squad rou aud proceedod to the sceno, and that after a aharp tlght ho succeeded lu drlvlng the Amerlcana off. No menlion of casual tlea on elther aido la made. The humor of tho admlral's statement contrlbuted to the goiety of tho marinoa. Immedlately after landlng the Amerlcana began thelr march toward Santiago. The head of tho advanclng column camped at Demajayabo Wednosday nlght, June 22, and on Thursday advanced to Juragna whlch the enemy hastlly ovacuated. By nieht a lunctiou had beon effected between the maln dlvlsions of the invaders on hlgh cround about ten niiles from the guna of Morro castle. Beyond Juragua, tho Span. iarda suddenly appeared In force, oxpect ing to surprise the Amerlcan advanoo. They were, however, dlscoverod by a recon noltering party composed of AmerlcanB and Cubans who opened flre as they fell back toward tho head of the column, and tho Spanlarda themselves fell back. Two Cu bans were kllled. On Friday mornlng KooseveltB rougu riders, who had asked that they be sent to the front at once, were ambuahed by the Spaniards, sixteen of thelr number kllled and as many more wounded. Among tho kllled wero Captaln Capron, and Sergeant Hamllton Fish of the famous New York family that f urnished a secretary of State in Qen. Grant's cabinot. The young man was an athleto and was one of many of the gilded youth of Now York who entered Itoosevelt's rogiment. Young Flsh was in tho fore front of the fight, brave and daring. Among the wounded was Edward Marshall, corrospoudent of the Now York Journal. The warshipB have kept all the coaat on oitherside of Santiago under their guna, and the fortlflcationa and the country around the advanclng colnmns of the Amerlcana are under flre. There is con atant flghtlng on the land, and day by day the gripof the invaders istightening around the clty and harbor that are the objects of their operatlons. It la believed that the firat stand ln force will be encountered at the intrenchmenta immedlately east of the clty, as the Unlted Statea scouts have protty thoroughly ox plored the territory between the head of the column and the Spanlsh outpoatB, and they report that theae intrenchmenta are heavily manned, but that there la no con aiderable body of troopa east of them. The InsurgentB under Qeua. Qarcia and Castillo are in constant touch wlth the maln body of the attacking army, and are provlng a source of greatest atrength. Further partlculars of tho fight on Friday leave no doubt that the "rough riders," who were flghtlng dlsmounted, walked lnto an ambush. The spot had beenaelected by the Spaniards and Booaevelt's men were taken at a dlsadvantage. The aeverlty of their lossea, and of the other troopa wlth them, la attrlbuted in part to the ntter con tempt they showed for their Spanlsh foea. The lesaon will not daunt thelr courage in the leaat but will lead the Amerlcana to a more prudent regard for their safety. The gallantry of the troopers, under flre for the firat time, la apoken of wlth higheat pralao by offlcera and men throughout the army and the cool bravory of Col. Wood and Lleut. Col. Itoosevelt, who took their men out of a bad fix wlth the glory of victory, has madethem heroea. When the nature of tho reslatance waa understood, the men were ordered to de ploy and flre npon the concealed enemy from a lylng posltion, tlll relnforcemonts could come up. Aa tho Mauaer bulletn rlpped up the ground about them, the men swore ln angry iinpatlence. They wanted Xo be up and at the Spaniarda cloae ln. "Don't Bwoar or you'll catch no fish," waa Col. Wood's cool advice as he held the men in cbeck and dlrected the flre. When belp camo the AmerlcanB made a hurrlcano daah for the chaparral, and the Spaniards were eoon acnrrying through the thicket. The auxiliary cmlsers sent a few rounds of aholl after the retreatlng enemy, but the range waa too long and little damage waa done. When the firlng waa over the wounded were promptly sent to the rear. There waa deep sorrow and anger aa the extent of the lossea began to be learnod. The troopa are havlng the greatest dlffl- culty ln tranaportlng the slege guns and other hoavy war materlal to the front. It waa known ln advance that the conntry waa rugged and mountalnous, and covered wlth a tangle of troploal nndergrowtb, but revelatlon awalted them aa to the kind of roada aouthoaatern Caba affords. The maln road from Balqulrl to Santiago la aa lmpas- Bable to artlllery ln lta present condltlon as a Malno logglng road ln aummer tlme, Tt la little moro than a footpatb, and is over grown wlth vlnei and ahruba and brlstlea wlth jagged rocka. The englneera are work lng llke beavora to put lt ln ahape for the artlllery aud aupply tralna, but ln the ter riblo heat the taak la a hard one. Bren the infantry find the footlng a tax on thelr endurance, and many ot them JUUiLH havo beon Bont to the tcar, havlng beon proBtratcd by tho heat and oxortlon. In tlio inaln, howevor, tho men ato boarlng up well, anil thelr gonoral condltlon ls aur prlalngly good, cousldorlng tho hardshlpa thoy havo undorgono slnco loavlng Tampa.

Along tho ontlre extent of tho flve-mllo march from canip Merrlttl an oscortlng squad of po ltco was obllgod to forco back tho thronga of peoplo to make a narrow lano for tho progroBB of the departlng companles. The soldtera were choered at overy atop; good' bya and good wishoi wero shoutod, flaga wero waved, llowora wero thrown, and everywhere aa much feellng waa manlfeated aa whon tho llrst oxpadltion left Tho Spanlsh fleet roportod at the north ond of the Suez Caual, supposedto be lieau ed for Mantla, conststa of tho battloshlp Polayo and crulser Emperor Oharles V, each of somo 9,000 tons dlsplacement, the gun boatB Osado, Audaz, FroBerplna, and oleht tranaporta conTeylng 4.000 troops. It la reported from Washington that the Unlted States will checkmate tlils movo by sendlng a lleet to attack Spaln at home, and thua compol her to recall the Uoot that ap- poara to be destlnod to operate agalnat Admlral Dewey. The dlstance from Suez, at the north ond of the canal, to Manlla is about the samo aa from San Franclaco. Before the Spanlsh could roach .the Fhlllp pines, all the three expeditions dlspatched thlther from San Francisco will have ar rlved and Dewey could be relnforced by the Charlestown, tho Monterey and the Monadnock, a double turreted monltor whlch salled on Thuraday June 23, and whtch la rated at 14.5 knots an hour. The Monterey salled June 7. A large forco of troops, and arma and ammunltion for evory emergency, barrlng dlsastors to the expedl- tions will roach Dewey before the Spanlsh lleet appears off tho entranco of Manlla bay, The Amerlcan forces, lt is confldently believed, will be able not only to defend thelr posltion auccesafully, but to attack the Spanlsh fleet If opportunity presents. But the Spanlsh lleet has not gone yot; and if it undertakes to go the dlfficultles of coal- ing in the neutral ports whlch are all Brit- iah, and the dangera that impend, may aave Admiral Dewoy thetrouble of deatroylng it.
