Since the rumoured arrival of the Spanish Fleet at Santiago de Cuba no news has reached Here though the Cuiule Between this place and Santiago de Cuba is not interrupted. The morn France of this mysterious Sil not known but excites great wonder. No explanation is furnished excepting surmise based on various influences. The theory that the Spanish Admiral allowed himself to be bottled up in tin Bay of Santiago de Cuba is not entertained Here. On the contrary the Hytien officials say it is far from Likely that such a thing has occurred.

This dispatch lacks confirmation. Washington May 2s.-the Navy department received information Day which for the first time relieved the Cilicia is of the anxiety and doubt they have Felt and satisfied them on two vital Points the american Fleet under Commodore Schley is outside Santiago Harbor. Admiral Cervera s Spanish Fleet is inside that Harbor. This information came from private sources we Iii the naval officials re Gard As thoroughly reliable As it is from the same source that gave the Navy department the first information almost a week ago. That the Spanish Ron was inside Santiago Harbor. This source of information has proved itself reliable thus far and for that reason the news received to Day is accepted As conclusive. It did not come from any naval or state department officials but there is Little doubt but it will be supplemented by official advices from Admiral Schley if such advices Are not already Mere though up to the close of office hours the Navy department had not Bull tined anything from Schley. The officials Are in a state of expectancy having Learned from the pre patches from Kingston that the scout no vessel Harvard was there with re ports for the department. Secretary Long went to the review at Camp Alger during the afternoon and in his absence no information made Public. Relying on the private advices received the naval officials feel that the entire military situation is simplified. With the spaniards inside and the americans outside Santiago Harbor it is said that the Powers for mischief by the Spanish Fleet Are at an end. All Schley needs is a Small Force to watch the in of Santiago Harbor. Two battleships and two cruisers will be ample. In this Way cd Nora s Fleet will be pocketed without keeping a Large number of american ships out of Active service at other needed Points. In calculating upon keeping the spaniards penned up in this fashion the officials have taken into account the possibility of a dispersion of the american blockading Licet by one of the tropical cyclones almost do at this season. The american yet in such a. Case would be obliged to Cut and run for some Neutral port or to make its Way by Force into one of the cuban ports for shelter. In either cast there might he an Opportunity for the Spanish Fleet to make its escape providing the commanding officers Are willing to take a desperate Chance of going out in weather heavy enough to compel the big american ironclads to seek shelter unless we Block the Harbor by scuttling barges in the Channel. On her Way to this country the Vizcaya passed through some very severe weather almost approaching the cyclonic and proved that vessels of her class Are Able to withstand such storms with perfect safety. The Navy department has posted a bulletin giving reassuring advices from Admiral Dewey. This was the Only specific bit of information Given out Dur ing office hours. Various reports of sanguinary Battles failed of verification and ultimately proved to be groundless As far As reports reaching hero disclosed. Copyright. 1s9s. Associated press key West. May advices from the South const of Cuba show conclusively that the Harbor of Santiago de Cuba hns been patrolled with a Vigil Ance equal to that shown by the blockading Squadron since the Spanish announcement that Admiral Cervera s Squadron entered the Harbor.
