The Major and Aldermen knew very well that tf the city would have to pay that amount in addition to the l.jU() to Mr. Adams there would be a big kick by Abe Mann's agitation. Mr. Adams explained that tlie circu lar sent out by Dr. Camp ot (lie build ing was to that effect and it was also customary. The, mayor told Air. Attains marine committee had no authority to niaKe any such statement and therefore thought that the aldermen ought not to be held to the. agreement.

The boat which was reported to be in Mil's bay is 40 miles front Hong Kong and it would take some len days by an overland route to convey the ollicial despatches to the nearest cable ofllec. There is a growing anx iety here about tho position of Dewey and arrangements are rapidly being made for the conveyance of reinforce ments from San Francisco to Manila. 10,000 men could be sent at short notice but by the nearest calculation it would take more than a mouth for them to reach their destination in which time Commodore Drwey may be in sore need of assistance.
