Official Reporis of Deaths Erroneous Slight Diminution in Number of Deaths. Bombay, Jan. 24.?Although the offi? cial returns the mortality for yesterday due to plague show a slight diminuation, the official figures are known to be entirely erroneous. The actual number of deaths is about double thelocse estimate of the authorities: It is a question whether the authorities are wise in thus under-estimating the extent of the epidemic. Cleansing operations are soon to be be? gun which will, it is hoped, tend to stay the progress of the plague in this city. Tiie dreaded malady is spreading slowly but surely, over the entire face of the country, and ever day brings reports of outbreak in other places. TO BANQUET CLEVELAND. The President to Be Complimented by New York Merchants. New York, Jan. 25.?President Cleve? land, upon leaving office, will receive & , hearty "thank you" from the merchants of this city for what he has done while oc? cupying the Executive chair. This will take the form of a complimen? tary dinner, tendered him by the Chamber of Commerce, with the presentation of a set of resolutions and some form of souvenir to mark the occasion. The idea is to give formal recognition of the stand Mr. Cleveland took on the currency question. The recent stand of the President on the treaty question with England has given a second topic on which the merchants are almost a unit in approving Mr. Cleveland and the discussion of this will be given much attention in the after-dinner speeches at the proposed complimertary banquet.

Buried Skeletons Unearthened, Supposed to be Those of Spies. West Point, N. Y., Jan. 24 (Special).? Several days ago a gang of men was set to work digging out a cellar under the officers' club rooms. The excavation extended under the Schofield Hall. While at work after dinner yesterday one of the men startled his comrades by an excahnation of horror, and promptly tumbled over in a faint. His companions soon revived him, and, when he told that he had dug into a skeleton there was a rush to the spot. A spadeful of bones lay on the surface. The men carefully picked them up and placed them in a box. Then they began to dig in earnest. The place proved to be a veritable graveyard. At 4 o'clock they had unearthed a wagon-load of bones and skulls, which must have belonged only to men of giant stature. There was great excitement, until one of the old retired soldiers, who was born on the post, told a story handed down by his grandfathei that all the English spies hanged in Gallows Hollow were buried where Schofield Hall now stands. The authorieties will probably in vestigate the matter. NOT SURPRISED. The Reported New Deai of the Norfolk and Western. Norfolk, Va., Jan. 25.?The anounce? ment that the Hocking Valley railway and the Wisconsin Central lines had funned a combination with the Norfolk and Western system looking toward the establishment of a direct line from the great lakes to Norfolk was not unexpected in railway circles in this city. It has long been known that both these big wes? tern systems wanted to reach this port, and that they were only deterred from so doing by the condition of the Norfolk and Western, whose receivers were not pre? pared to enter into negotiations to this end. As soon as the road was sold, however, and Mr. Henry Fink, its president, show? ed that his policy would be a progressive one, the plan at once assumed definite shape, and its successful consummation is confidently expected here. In that event, even the present large terminal facilities of | the Not folk and Western at this port will have to be enlarged by the addition of at least two elevators, Additional yard capaci? ty, and new warehouses; Lambert Point is already one of the greatest railway terminals in the South and this addition will probably make it the largest. It is also stated on good authority that the contemplated combine has made the Norfolk and Western active to try to se? cure ingress into Atlanta. Although the statement given out by President Mor sorrete, of the Hocking Valley is not] taken seriously Li Wall street, it is confi? dently believed here that the deal will be | consumated. MAN-OF-WAR SUNK IN CUBA. Commander of the Spanish Ship and Half or His Men Killed. Key West, Fla., 25.?Havana advices received at Key West are to thcelfect that the Spanish gunboat Cometa has been captured and burned by the insurgents.

Last Tuesday night they opened fire on the vessel with*a 12 pound Hotcbkiss gun. The vessel was struck several times, J and badly damaged While the crew were in eanfusion, boats loaded with insurgents left die shore and the Cometa was boarded.

Finally after i he Spanish commander and half his men had been killed, the sur? vivors surrendered. The Cubans then burned the vessel amid shouts of Cuba Libre. NOTICE.
