Dispatch Boat frpm Manila.
IIoNii Kon;, May A The United
Stales dispatch boat McCfillough has ar
rived in Mirs Bay. Sho left before the
Manila battle aud no information could
be given further than isAlready known.
It is not likely that r.ny vi&rd will be re
ceived from Dewey for several days as
ho would probably not hve sent a dis
patch boat until his whole mission has
been accomplished. On the other hand
it is probable that as soon as he gains
control of Manila that he would establish
the cable, communication which has been
cut probably by the Spaniards as soon
as the bombardment began. There is
a strange mystery about the whole af
fair and it may not be solved for several
days. Some fears for the safely of
Dewey have been expressed on account
of tin! fact of his Doing so far from a
base of ordnance supplies and the pos
sibility of a crippled condition of his
ships. There is little doubt that he has
already captured Manila but as he has
but .000 available landsmen there are
grave fears as to whether he will be, able
to maintain his position without rein
forcements. British Steamer Mobbed.

Combined Naval Force of
Spain to Strike,
Lisikin, May 4. News has been re
ceived here to the effect that the Span
ish Capo Verde squadron has returned
to join the squadron at Cadiz, which is
now almost ready for the sea. The
combined naval forces of Spain will
shortly be sent to American waters, and
Spain will then strike with one united
blow for the honor of tho country and
the satisfaction of the Queen. It is ex
peeled that within a few days the great
est battle ever fought will take place
somewhere in tho vicinity of Cuba. If
the I'liiled States demolishes the Span
ish navy, the next step will doubtless
be tho capture and occupation of Cuba
and Torto Uieo.
