A Cable From Otis.
Washington, May 4; —The war department received
tlic following dispatch this morning from Manila, under
date of today:“Gen. Lawton holds Bahaug, which was
captured on the 2d inst., alter a rapid movement from
Augat, where he was supplied with wagon train, pack
animals and rations. He scattered the enemy, who were
strongly entrenched to the north and northwest, capturing
large amounts of food supplies, and has his detachments
to the north and eastward. His successful movement was
attended with great difficulty, because of the character of
the country, rain and heat. He now covers our railway
communication and will be supplied from Malolos. Gen.
MacArthur’s column concentrated and took up the ad
vance on San Fornando this morning.
“I do not apprehend a sharp resistance of the enemy,
who will probably leave the railroad and retire in a north
erly direction to the north of Lawton. The destuctien of
the railroad near Calumpit by the insurgents necessitates
dependence upon wagon transportation. The enemy has
9.CXX) men, but are opposed by a sufficient force under
Gens. Overshine ank Hall. Many requests have been re
ceived from outlying cities, asking for protection against
the insurgent troops. Otis.”
