markable in several respects. The fatal
squall was one uf the most sndd pn ii 11. !
terrific in the memory of the surviving
M-aineu. it was all over 111 about a min
ute. It happened so quickly and there
was so little warning that there was no
time to avert calamity or provide for es
cape. As it was, it seems remarkable
that there was a single survivor. The es
cape seemed but a trick of fate.
When the squall struck her the vessel
careened under the terrible blow, and all
realized that their lives were in danger.
Seven of the sixteen sailors quickly clam
bered up the masts. No sooner had they
done so than a second and far more pow
erful gust of wind seized the craft and
seemed to lift it bodily out of the sea.
Then, as if in a mighty grasp, the vessel
was wrenched and given a sudden twist
with such violence that the masts snapped
off even with the deck, like toothpicks,
and were hurled far away from the reach
of the vortex made by the ship as she fell
back into the water and sank like a piece
This is the story as told by the survivors.
They left New York at S o'clock Friday
night, and the squall struckthem soon
afterwards. There was not the slightest
warning. The wind was blowing only
about two knots and everything seemed
favorable for a smooth trip.
After the sqaull subsided the moon come
out and by its light the seven survivors,
who still clung to the masts in spite of the
awful shock of being thrown through the
r.irand striking the water as they did,
were able to Jind a dory, into which they
climbed, after baiiin-jr it out.

Havana, Anril 18. Further informa
tion from the front shows that the battle
of Tuesday last ar Laehuza was the most
severe since the beginning of hostilities.
It was a complete defeat for Colonel Lin
ares by General J.Iaceo. whose force con
sisted of s.u:)) men. Spanish reports place
Colonel Linares' forcn at 1.500 men, of
whom 450 were killed and 500 wounded.
The insurgents lost 200 killed and about
Maceo led his troops into the thickest of
the fight, and Colonel Linares' forces re
treated in disorder. They finally made a
stand on the wharf of the San Claudia
plantation behind rude fortifications, un
til a warship came to their rescue. The
Cuban forces on the shore made sad havoc
with the troops as they embarked, shoot
ing them down in their boats.
In the battle a company of Cuban wo
men fought bravely. In an effort to cap
ture Colonel Linares an insurgent, Al
varez, got separated. Seeing his danger.
Mrs. Alvarez and several others followed
him. Both husband aud wife were caught
in the Spanish lines, and tried to fight
their way back with machetes. Thinking
that his wife was still at his side, Alvarez
made his escape, but she was cut off at
the last moment, and was literally hacked
to pieces by Spanish machetes. In his
grief aud chagrin Alvarez shot himself se
riously. General Ma coo commanded Alvarez to
appear before him. On demanding a
reason for his crime, Alvarez said he could
not endure life purchased by his wife's
tteatn. .Maceo replied: "Pray God you
may tlie, for if you live I will surely hang
yon. Cuba needs men too sorely to lose
any except in the face of the enemy."
Three, prisoners of war,Gregoiio Borges,
Estaban Hernandez and Jose Bacallao,
were executed yesterday at the Cabanas
fortress. They belonged to the insurgent
band commanded by Dr. Bruno Sayas.

This movement, however, bring little
comfort to those in Buluwayo. Theexcitctl
manner in which the natives quitted their
positions intliea ed a confident purpose of
mischief. There is no evidence that they
were alarmed Friday at the demonstra
tion of the patrol of forty-two men from
Buluwayo against their vanguard. Al
though this vanguard was driven back
upon the main body, the patrol did not
dare to place itself within reach of the
overwhelming numbers of the main body.
The direction taken by this body of hos
tile natives after quitting the position to
the north has not been learned. But it is
feared that the purpose of the movement
is to try and effect a junction with the
rebels in the Matoppo Hills, and thus sever
communications to the southward. The
road runs through the Matoppo Hills to
the south of Buluwayo, and this is a diffi
cult and dangerous one for fifty miles
from here, at which distance the road
reaches the Mangwe pass. This angular
and precipitous defile, it is said, must be
held. It is of such a character that it can
well be made impregnable against the at
tacks of native warriors, but for the same
reason, if allowed to get into the hands of
the native, it would be difficult to dis
lodge them with any force at present
available. To leave this pass to the enemy
would effectually cut off the intercourse
of Buluwayo with the outside world.
