The measures of precaution v^^hxch Rear Admiral Sampson adopted up to yesterday, to guard the eastern and western passages, did not detract from the efficacy of blockade. Now that the element of uncertainty regarding the Spanish, which doubt is almost entirely removed, the ships which were solely occupied in watching for the Spaniards have become an additional force for the blockade, and without and conceivable change of position.  Commodore Schley has been reinforced, but his position was clearly so strong that the reinforcement which he received made no difference to the strong lleet in northern Cuban waters.  The rumors of the sailing of a second Spanish squadron did not worry Rear Admiral Sampson in the slightest degree. Ills feelings on the subject were aptly expressed recently vrhen he said :  ' 'I am perfectly satisfied that we have bagged those fellows," (referring to Admiral Cervera's ships.)  Rear Admiral Samjjson does not cross his bridges until he comes to tbem, and when that time oomes hi.s unconqxierable patience and trategetic ability can be relied niion to see him safely across.  For the second time since war was declared the admiral lias been notified that the army is ready to move. This is good news to all the naval ofiiccrs. The two branches of the service have been playing a game of wait; the army resting until the navy disposed of the Sxian-ish iloet, and the navy unable to occupy much needed b.isas until the troops were ready for de])arkation. In view of the tact that the Spanish leet was far faster tliiin the Ameri-cin fleet, and the J'c'rmer had no desire for an engament, this policy of inaction, however far sighted it may have been, temporally pro-luced much natural irritation iTuong the naviil olll jors.

Two possible future kings of Great Britian walked beside the great commoner's coffin and all the nobility and learning of the state surrounded it, though the wish of the deceased had been for simplicity.  This ofhcial funeral, the first since that of JLord Palmerston, was rendered an imposing specfeacle by the magnificence of the building in which it was solemnized- The coffin rested on an elevated bier, before the altar. Its plainness was hidden beneath a pall of white and gold embroidered with the text, ' -Requies-cat in pace.''  WORK AT AVINONA.  - /  Important Uusiness Transacted by the Assembly.

The I'resbyterian Church Declares Its Loyalty to the l*re«ident in the Present Crisis.  Winona Lake, Ind., May 28.— Attendance at the Presbyterian general assembly 'today was depleted on account of the dex>arture of the eastern commissioners. The first item of business was the ap-13rovai of the action of the Presbytery of New York in erasing from the roll the namo of Dr. Charles A. Briggs at his request.  It was ordered that this ba made a matter of record by the general assembly. A su^jplementary resolution was adopted declaring the loyalty of the Presbyterian church and pledging its prayers for the chief magistnite of the narioii and for the national arms.  Overtures concerning organic union with the Southern Presbyterian church was answered to the effect that no further action was needed than to refer to the deliverance of the assembly of 1804.  A resolution -was adopted expressing tliG assembiy's gratitude to tha British nation lor its fellowship in the present crisi.s.  A rei)ort on theological seminaries was presented by Dr. William C. Roberts.  It was announced that Princeton seminary had obtained legislation giving the assembly power as a (jarty at lav/ to enforce its aiiDhority over the teaching and government of the seminary. A protest was made against the proposed action of  ihe house of representatives authorizing the ercction of a Catholic chapel on the military reservation at ^Vest Point.  Dr. W, 11. Roberis, from the committee, on polity, reported against triennial meetings of the assembly, which had been asked for by a dozen presbyteries, on account o 1 the great cost of eacb. meetiny, amount-ing to about $.50,000.

By great good fortune, no accident has occurred of sufficient mportance to render any of our ships uite.rly hoiplcss or beyond the aid of towing daring theiloets cruising of the past mouth. Such accidents, however,are quite v/ithin the bounds of possibility. With such lender machines as tori)edo boats doing hard duty in all kinds of weather, accidents even come into the list of probabilities which naval commanders have to count upon.  With a base in the enemy's territory witli a harbor of refuge and a coaling station withiii tvrenty miles of the cruising ground-?, Rear Admiral Samjison's task, arduous at its best, will bo made a very groat deal easier. But such a base caa only be obtained through co-operation with the array, as the force of marines at the disposal of the admiral is not large enough to cope with, the i)0:-sible strengtli that Cap-rain (General Blanco would concentrate on short notice. Then while the army of the United States is operating on shore it is safe to say tho naval gimners v;ill not be idle.  During the Vv-eek's cruise of tho flagship Now York, from I.Iatanzas towards tho eastern end of Cuba and back, there were few incidents of interest.  Everything centered in the news from Commodore Schley, and dis-aijpointment was visible in every face when it became generally known that the Commodore v»"as mistaken in thinking he had Ad-miml Cervera bottled up iit Cien-fuegos, but this feeling of disappointment soon gavo way to renewed entliusiasm when news was received from Santiago do Cuba.  This leally was more acceptable than the report from Cieniuegos, for had Admiral Cervera succecded in ejecting a landingat Cienfeuegos he would most likely have been able to transport bla alleged cargo of arms and ammunitioa to Havana, while from Santiago de Cuba it will be almost impo.-sible for him to do so.  sion tiieassembly decklod agiiinHt. tiio X)roposcd change, but directed tho ai)pointm<;uc of ii-committee of nine to consider the question of the re-ductioa of tho number of commissioners by cliauging the ratio of r c":} r ese n t.i t ion.

Hurst & Co.  vsrill not take active stops to block up the entrance of Santiago harbor until ho is perfectly certain that Admiral Cervera's ships are inside.  However, he may have done this a-lready, as Commodore Schley's last communication, forwarded on Thursday, only reached Rear Admiral Sampson yesterday.  The commodore stayed three days at Cienfuegos. He signalled to his ship, "I beliove the Spanish fleet is in the harbor." On this belief, a message was sent to tho American admiral. The details of how Com-modoro Bcliley found out that ho was mistaken are not j'-et known. At any rute, actinj^ on the admiral's iristructior.s, the comniodoro then moved east, ax-riving outside Santiago de Cuba on Wednesday morning, :^uy 25th.  Tiio topography of Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba are almsot identical. Both harbor'3 are aboui; six miles long with narrow entrances about oOO :rards wide and protected by highland. A whole iieet could lie in tlie harbor of either place and be invisible from the outside. After his experience at Oienfaogos, it is probable that Commodore Schle.y was very consera-tive in deciding whothor or not ho had caught Admiral Cervera.  From the tone of his dispatches it is evident that tho commodore soon gamed much second-hand atnd external evidence which pointed to Admiral Cor vera's pi-esence in the inner harbor.  This evidence was apparently str;)ng enough to make the comuvo-doro feel certain tho object of Iiis trip bad been accomplished, but in view of Iiis proviouB experience, he Vv'ould not risk a deci'iive statement until after a'icertaining the tact for himself.  Before this dispatch is ])u]jlished, it is likely that Commodore Schley has sent some vessel into the entrance of tho hai'bor of Santiago do Cuba or has obtained from a reliable source ashore information as to the exact number and the nnmos of the Si)anish warships sheltered by the hills about that place.  Contrary to the gouerally expressed opinion, the harbor of Santiago de (Juba is poorly protected. Like Ha vana and San Juan do Pox to Rico it has its Morro castle, which is even a. better target than those of Havana and San eluan. The only danger to be feared is fz'om tho mines vrhicli have been laid in the ch mncl of Santiago since wa.r w.is declaimed.  But countcrmlng ^vould I'srobably rondrr those mines barmlcs.s, should it ])rovo desirable for (Joiomodoro Schley's ships to enter the harbor. Such a step, however, is unlikely.  In this connection it may bo noted that, since the cojiimencomont of ilio naval operations, tho moral ufTcct ol: the mines has been great. This condition promises to continue, and will probablj'' mark the naval ojjarations to a greater extent than over imagined in tho past.  A pron)inent naval authority said to tlio correspondent of tho Associated Press: <  "TliO moral effect of torpedos and mines will prove far superior to t heir actual effect. In fact, so great is their moral force that there is no doubt whether their powers of execution will have an opportunity to ]je judged in this war."  liridiio is Done.
