Squadron is driven away after terrible cannonading. [Special Dispatch to the Daily Alaskan.] Port Arthur, Feb. 25 ? Very early yesterday morning the Japanese squadron made a desperate, though unsuccessful attempt to block the entrance to the inner harbor of Port Arthur. The attempt was frustrated by the terrible hail of shot and shell from the Rus sian battleship Retvizan and the shore batteries that was rained upon the attacking ships. It was the purpose of the Japanese to sink merchant ships in the narrow entrance to the harbor, and with that end in view, they advanced toward the channel at the en trance, from both sides just after midnight. There were four merchant ships two from each side and they were accompanied by torpedo boats. The movement was perceived by * the big battleship Retvizan, which immediately opened life as it advanced to the entrance of the harbor. The fire of the Retvizan was at once reinforced by the guns from the forts o?i Tiger peninsula, Golden hill and Electric cliff. The canonading which ensued was fur ious, and it continued until five o'clock in the evening, when the attack had become des ultory, and the firing ceased. The Japanese completely failed to efrect the purpose of their night attack. The four merchant ships were scattered and sunk, and the torpedo boats compelled to retire. It is not known how badly the torpedo boats were damaged. JAPANESE FLEET AGAIN APPEARS (Special Dispatch to Daily ^Alaskan.) Port Arthur, Feb. 25?

The persistence with which the Japan ese fleet returns again an<l again to the attack of Port Ar thur is generally believed to indicate tliat the plan to cap ture that stronghold has not ceased to be an imi>ortant part of the pfograin of war as it lias been laid out by the Sunrise Empire. It is thought to be more than likely that the ap parent abandonment of all idea of an early capture of Port Arthur and the feint toward the northern boundary of Ko rea was intended to can >e a relaxation in the Russian de fense of that place.
