In hand a detailed Story of the attack and How gallantly the american troops bore themselves in repulsing it. Washington feb. 6.�?the important news in Washington to Day was the ratification of the peace Veaty and the receipt of the lists of casualties from general Otis. The list was Long in coming but this fact is explained by the cutting of the Telegraph wires along the american front. A Short cablegram from Dewey caused some temporary commotion by creating the impression that hostilities had been renewed by the insurgents. There is nothing from Otis to confirm such an inference. The cablegram touched on the other matters entirely so it is assumed that there was no foundation in fact for the apprehension. General Otis casualty lists Are somewhat confusing due to the fact that there Are Nineteen different lines Between Manila and Washington. The officials of the War department arranged the previous casualty lists into the following single list which is be lived to be substantially accurate and was made up As the official substitute list for the prior lists the casualty list.

Smith first Tennessee died of apoplexy at the head of his command on the firing line february 5. Future prospects. As to the change in conditions wrought by the ratification of the treaty to Day there is a variance of views. The extreme View on one Side is that until the Spanish government ratifies the treaty it is not of Legal effect. By the other extreme View the United states government is free to do just As it pleases in the entire group of islands and will therefore proceed at once to Complete the military occupancy of the islands. The medium View Likely to be followed is that Otis is justified in doing anything necessary to protect the army and All american and foreign interests in Manila even though obliged to assume the offensive and go outside of the old lines in Pursuit of the insurgents who May be seeking to reorganize and recoup from their late defeat with the intention of attacking again or even threatening the americans. The Solace started from Norfolk at 3 o clock this afternoon with ammunition Iund other needed stores for Dewey s Fleet via the Suez canal. It is no secret now that the authorities Here were preparing to arrest Agoncillo just As he fled. The conduct of the a remaining members of the philippine Junta is still under close watch and while the treatment to be accorded them has not been determined it is recognized that they Are in a precarious position legally and can secure immunity Only by the exercise of the greatest discretion.

During the fighting the United states warships shelled a train loaded with insurgents. Col. William c. Smith of the first Tennessee infantry was in the thick of the fight when attacked by apoplexy and fell from his horse. Another estimate. Manila feb. 6.�?careful estimates place the filipino losses up to Date at 2.000 dead 3,500 wounded and 5,000 prisoners. Gallantly repulsed. Detailed Story of the attack and the Battle.

So far As can be gathered the Brush commenced at 8 45 on saturday , by the firing of a Nebraska sentry at Santa Mesa upon filipinos who were deliberately crossing the line after repeated Wai rings with the evident purpose of drawing our fire. The first shot from the american sentry was evidently accepted As a pre arranged signal for it was followed almost immediately by a terrific fusillade along the entire line on the North Side of the Paulg River. The american outposts returned the fire with such vigor that the filipino fire was checked until the arrival of reinforcements. All the troops in the Vicinity were hurried out and the filipinos ceased firing for half an hour while their reinforcements came up. At 10 o clock the firing was resumed the american firing line consisting of the third artillery the Kansas and Montana regiments the Minnesota regiment the pennsylvanians the nebraskans the Utah Battery the Idaho the Washington the californians the fourth cavalry the North Dakota volunteers the sixth artillery and the fourteenth infantry.
