The Massachusetts' steam cutter, in charge of Lieutenant Harlow, entered the cove to take soundings and reconnoitre. When well inside the inlet a detachment of Spanish infjintry opened fire upon the cutter from a blockhouse. The lire was vigorously returned by the marines in ihe Massachusetts' boat, and also by the marines who were in the New York's cutter, which was in charge of Naval Cadet Powell, and which had followed in. The New York's cutter was hit ten times, .and a marine in the cut ter of the Massachusetts had the stock of his rifie shattered, but by good luck i no tine was Int. The Texas opened fire with her six pounder on the hillside, and the Vixen steamed right into the cove and pepper ed the blockhouse with her rapid tiring guns.

The newspapers of this city to-day publish the text of .a manifesto from th.. inhahitjtnts of Catalonia. of which Barcelona is the capital in favor of peace between Spain ;ind the I'nitcd States. The manifesto is signed by thirty-live .associations jmd eighteen local news papers. It says the present evils jire "due to the existing regime Avhich is nothing bed a government of disorder and neglect." After recalling the fact tlmt the Spanish Monarchs have lost possession after possession, it says: "Tin United States is guilty of un justifiable aggression, but if the war is prolonged. Spain Avill be completely ruined. A painful amputation is a hundred-fold preferable to ji terrible and disastrous war. ami jiny transaction eventually made Avill not be more honor able .after the country is ruined, the blood of her vjilued soldiers shed .and starvation has ravaged ;i majority of the workmen's homes." The manifesto then depicts the griev ous internal situation ami says: "Spain :isks immediate peace, desp'jj the opposition of those who desire the utter destruction of the country in or der to impose their domination upon its ruin. The sooner peace is concluded the more advantageous it Avill be. it is the duty of oAeryhody to endeavor to force tin government to obtain peace." The document concludes liy predicting, unless a speedy pejiee is secured, a com plete internal collapse, wliich Avill en guf economic prosperity and political or ganizations and launch the country into a state of anarchy or arbitrary despotism.

June IS. -The or iginal plans of campaign for the conduct of the Avar against Spain wid be adhered to jind will be pushed with vigor jind en ergy. That decision was reached at a Avar council held at the White House to day at which were present President McKinlcy, Secretaries Alger and Long. Ceneral Miles, Assistant Secretary Meiklejohn, Admiral Sicard and Captain Mahan. Of course there will lie some slight mollifications mule neces.-ary by the changes that have occurred since the beginning of hostilities, but these, after all, Avill not a fleet tin general plan. of operations. Cencral Miles returned from Florida Avith information respect ing the condition of the troops, diilioul ties to be expected in the progress of t!i campaign, and needs in the matter of transportation that a ill aid materially ni the t oin.net of the next expedition. The conference Avas entirely harmoni ous. The only reason that the command ing general did not visit the White liou-e yesterday was because of ;i desire on tin Prosdeiit's tart that his Avar council lors should have the benefit of Ceiieril Miles' recital of his observations at first hand. Tin stories that there has been fric tion between Central Miles and Ids of ficial superiors are pronounced to h ab surd by all concerned and today's pro ooedi'igs gave ample evidence of tin fac that Ihe utmost harmony characterizes the relations between the Chief Exccu five and the military branch of the gov eminent. There Avere. of course, sonn differences of opinion among the poi sons present at the Avar council, but there has been no disposition in an.v quarter to resist for an instant any eon elusion Avhich has secured the approva of the President. The official declaration to the effec! that tin campaign is to bo pushed wi'I vigor does not necessarily mean an im mediate attack upon Havana, although su.ch advice has been tendered. It does mean that the ery strongest efforts an to be put 1'orih to ;;er lite .army in con dit ion Avhere it can be used with over Avhelniiiig effect at any point or points a almost a moment's notice. To this cm Ihe troops hoav in camp are to be tli r onglily trained and hardened, am! whei thev leave tin United States their equip moid Avill be the best a soldier can hive. fit for an.v season.

When' Santiago is captured e rtained regulars who do the work there will be pushed on to I'oito Riot If a 1 or most of them an needed tor thN expedition then the "provision.! force" referred to by Cencral Shatter ii his orders probably Avill be dispatched imnicdijitelv from the United States to girrison the town of Santiago and 1' relieve the regulars. Probably knowlodgi of some such intention has led to tin rumor Avhich found free currency todav to the effect that L'M men from Cnn-n (Irahani's camp had been ordered t proceed immediately to reinforce Shaft r at Santiago making the pjissago on tie ocean liners Harvard and Yale. lat the Ncav York and Paris.
