The Villistas In Monterey are declared to be in a precarious condition on ac count of the prevalence of black small pox and lack of provisions, caused by the seizure by the Carrancistas of all of the outlying districts, from which the Villistas have been drawing their sup plies. round Monterey. No general attacks have been made on the city recently, but important successes are reported to have occurred when the Villistas attempted sorties.
