Two ifliria! dispatches have Iteen received by the state and war departments, but I it is impossible to gather from them an I accurate knowledge as to the condition then1. It is iin|Kx^iblo to learn whether the insurgents «r the American forces have taken the place. I'nited States i ('-.iisul Pratt at Singapore has cabled the state department: "Iloilo taken -itu.

Ho the inference is that the insurgents are in ios,session. Color is lent to this lielief by the fact reiorted in iiiie telegram that the Spaniards had rvtrciited to a strongly fortified town on the inland of Mindanao. This d»»es not agree with Consul Pratt's statement that they tied to Bonn-o. the north co ist of which is a British jH»»«»sMon,but it is lieved that the consul is in error on this feint, which might easily 1M the case in view of the distance from his post to Iloilo. The fact that the Spaniards have retreated at all is also construed HS an indication that the town was Hhandoued to the insurgents, for it is U'liewd that Colonel Kios, the Spanish commander, would have cheerfully sur rendered to the American force, with a view to securing the safety of his men and their ultimate return to Spain by 'he American government, ttccurUing to the terniB of the treaty. appears tliat tlie American forces had arrived too late ,n the scene, and that the insur fP'Ut* had added to the difficulty of the problems already presented by hoisting their Hag over the city which they have '"•en iesieging for months. The news was contained in the following message from General Otis: "Manila. Dec. 27. Adjutant General.

HAVANA, Dec. —The Spanish troops have still further contracted their lines and withdrawn to the ex tremity of the peninsula on which the city of Havana is built. They now oc cupy scarcely two square miles. The United States troops have moved from the suburbs into the city proper and are patrolling Central park and th Prado. The Eighth and Tenth regular infantry regiments have ln-en placed at the disposal of Major General Ludlow, military governor of the city after Jan. I. and already six comianies have 1»een quartered in buildings within the limits of Havana projH-r and are doing police as well as military duty. Senor Fernandez oe Castro had in formed Geiieri-.l Ludi'W that the Ha vana constabulary were afraid keep order unless they could relv upon the Sii|i|ort the American Troop* and General Ludlow immediately is sued instructions to the American pa trols when making arrests for misde meanors to turn the offenders over to the ordinary civil authorities. The whole population is in a state of unrest the Spanish residents fearful, the Cubans eager to do something to show they have gained their freedom.' Bands of Cubans freely enter the resi-1 deuces of Spaniards, call upon them to hoist American and Cuban flags and shout "Viva Cuba Libre," and terrify them with their machetes. A do/en i such cases were reported to the Amer ican authorities "luring the day. In all such instances American guards were promptly sent to the houses invaded, but the Cubans were invariably gone when the patrol arrived, nor was there any such thing as catching the offend ers.

It has been found impossible to prevent the soldiers from drinking when liquor is obtainable, and for this. reason it has been decided to place tlicj responsibility upon the seller ins-tend of the drinker. On the recommendation of John McCullagh. former chief of po lice of New York, one of the first Amer ican promulgations will be the an nouncement that the sale of intoxicating liquor of any sort to an American sol dier in uniform will result in confisca tion of the property belonging to the seller and his imprisonment.
