(cofviiKiirrr.D nv associated i'kk.ss) Cai'K IIaytiax, Mav 21. If the reports which have reached this part are reliable, the fighting Dons led by Ad miral Cervcra are no longer to be feared bv the American army and navy, or reliable information received here from Mole states that the gallant sea fighter Acting Rear Admiral Sampson has waged a fierce fight with Spain's well advertised Modern Armada. The American commander has duplicated the performance of the Green Mountain hero Dewey and it is stated at their port tonight that in a hard sea fight not far from this island the Stars and Stripes have led heroic sailors to the goal of victory. The loss of hie while not yet known at this place is believed to be heavy on both sides. It is stated that as a result of the encounter the bankrupted Span ish government will receive the sad news that twelve of the best fighting crafts in the Spanish navy are beneath the waves, either sunk or burned. Hut takmg the report re ceived here from Port De Paix, the American fleet also has two disabled ships. The names are not. given. The report of this battle has caused great rejoicing among all classes here, as the American Eepnblic, has loyal friends in every part of this island, and the American government is waging the battle in a noble cause. The story of this battle while not vet confirmed here, it thought to be true as such an en- agement has been expected for several days, and if the bat tle took place in that vicinity, it would appear certain that if the Spanish lleet has met the Yankee sailors either the Mad rid despatch that the Cape Verde squadron were at Santiago Do Cuba was false or the Spanish Admiral for some un known cause saw fit to leave his safe haven, and if the ru mor of the battle is true, has indeed met his Waterloo. It is thought that if the Spanish fleet has been destroyed, Cuba will at once be invaded by the American army. Note To The Public.
