Report of of attempted assassination Blanco was a fake. Havana %. A there is absolutely no foundation for the report published in the United states of an attempt to assassinate Captain general Blanco by a member of the volunteers whose brother it was alleged had been shot for complicity in a plot against the government. General Blanco enjoys the esteem of All classes in Havana including the volunteers. Complete Tranquility reigns in Havana. The greatest Confidence is Felt that the Spanish forces will successfully Cope with the american soldiers who Are reported to have arrived on Board transports off the Harbor of Santiago de Cuba. There is great enthusiasm among the troops and volunteers who Are All anxious to fight against the invaders. Captain general Blanco denies that he has decided that there shall be no Exchange of prisoners with the United states. At the same time the Captain general says he cannot allow the Exchange of lieutenant Hobson and the other members of the party who sailed the Merrimac into the Mouth of the Harbor at Santiago de Cuba for the reason that the lieutenant Aud his companions had opportunities for seeing the Harbor and its defences. The most common prudence the Captain general says would forbid that these men be now Given their Liberty As proposed by the United states.

A the Washington Post this morning printed the following a the Spanish government is endeavouring to prove to the european Powers that the blockade of Culia is ineffective naval officers in Washington yesterday discussed with no Small amount of interest the published statements that supplies were being smuggled into Cuba in Large quantities. A Secretary Long in speaking of these reports pointed out that the presidents proclamation did not propose a blockade of the entire cuban coast but Only of certain ports among them Havana and Cienfuegos. Quot these ports a said the Secretary a Are effectively blockaded. I am confident that no ships have been Able to enter Havana even while the larger vessels of or Navy have been at Santiago unless perhaps n few Small schooners May have slipped in at Midnight. Quot the blockade of Havana is As tight As Wax. I am also sure that the Entrance to the Harbor of Cienfuegos is absolutely closed. Probably at other places along the coast some Small vessels have been Able to run in Aud out but As i have stated there Are Small towns against which a blockade Lias never been proclaimed. I am certain that Spain has no Fraund upon which to a peal to the Powers against the effective Ness of our rations have improved. Till Kasday. Washington dispatches received by the War Aud Navy departments yesterday from general shifter and Admiral Sampson gave information of the lauding of troops at Daiquiri Cuba.

Havana june 23 a report published in the United states to the effect that an attempt had been made to Assassin ate general Blanco is absolutely false. The general says the reason he will not Exchange lieutenant Hobson and comrades is because they have a knowledge of the def uses of Santiago. He also do Nies that he said he would fire on a Flag of truce carried by american vessels but did order that no vessel should come nearer to the Shore than six Miles As he did not want american officers to get the plus of fortifications at Havana.
