THE LAST. t! . »?' '' ' ' .'J The Final ^ '• >v:- in the Opera by the Sisters of . f-- -f. ' '• ' ; '••••' The entertainment given by the children of St. Mary's school, in the Opera House last night; under the direction of the Sisters of Mercy was probably one of the most largely attended entertainments ever given in Not'walk. • And it was the last that will be held at the same place, as the same is now in the hands of carpenter,' etc., who are fitting it up for offices, as previously announc2(l would be done, in these columns. Of the entertainment it can be said that it was a fitting ;iwind-u£': of one of Norwalk's oldest and best known balls of amusement. : ' The children of the^chool first presented the old but ever' entertaining operetta of "The Old Woman in the Shoe," the "cast being mainly and happily presented by MissMary Cassidyj as the Fairy queen, Miss. Margarte Kelly as the old woman who was supposed to own the shoe, and Curley Locks by Master-Bertie Rose. ; - ^ V A vocal-solo and duet, the Wi*eck of the Maine, by Masters Joseph Fagan and Stephen Flaherty was warmly applauded. "Jephtha and His Daughter" was splendidly presented by a cast of characters that evidenced they had each and all been splendidly trained in their parts. . A chorus "On the Battle Field" by Masters Willie Clune, James Tullyand their soldiers, made a "Dewey" hit. Littie Alice Torpy's "Since my little brother came to stay" received as it deserved a full round of applause. Eddie O^Brien made a hib with his "Hello Baby." The tableaus were excellent and evinced much care on the part of the Sisters of Mercy.''' V; ; £ The farce, "The Darkey Wood Dealer" was as full of fun.'&3 ;a watermelon is of seeds. ' ' The twenty-three lads who conducted the "Lime Kiln club," ,?were twenty-three times ahead of all former efforts .in that line. : The "Good Night*" - 4# Masters James Walker, Stephen Flaherty, assisted by a chorus, was immense. Mr. C. A. Freeman and his violin, with Masters Thomas Harvey and William Clune at the piano, added in no small way to the pleasures of the entertainment, V • : "v?

V,:' • *'• ~b i Reproduced by Permission-from Harper's Weekly. -Copyright, 1S98. by ll:uprr ic Br/;:;.i.-iV;. f , The U. S. S. -'Cincinnati" in Action. The bombardment of Matanzas on April 27th was momentous, because at that time the first shots were fired by the American fleet in Cuban waters against the Spanish flag. For eighteen minutes the flag-ship New York, the monitor Puritan, and the cruiser Cincinnati, at a range of 4000 yards from earthworks abreast of their stations, were firing almost incessantly. The .engagement was opened by the flagship, but the Puritan and Cincinnati impatiently signaled for permission to join her. Their request was at once granted, and the Cincinnati wa$ speedily in action, demolishing the enemy's | Vbatteries on the west shore. The accuracy of the gunners on the big cruiser was remarkable, and every discharge of her 6-inch gun wrought destruction to the Spanish works, while the men were full of enthusiasm, and overjoyed at the distinction of firing the first shots of the war. The subject of the illustration from Harper's Weekly, which we produce this week, is the Cincinnati swinging into line opposite the enemy's foivfcs, and discharging her forecastle gun. It was the first test in modern warfare of American naval disciplinnig and gun nery, and the test proved conclusively that thirty-five years of peace have not dulled the traditional keenness of Yankee marksmanship. I- Emphatically Deny. S. M. Perez and Jose Suarez, of the Whitlock school at Wilton, accompanied by the principal of the school, came to Norwalk this morning to deny a report that they had assaulted a young Mexican named Frank Algara on Sat urday night last. Algara was summoned and stated that they wer'ef not the parties who assaulted him. In the meantime officers had been sent to Wilton to arrest them. There seems to be an air of mystery about the affair which future developments may prove to be of interest to other than local residents. Mil Manila Won't Surrender. Londonj (May / o—cA despatch to the Daily eMail from Hong Kong says a communication from (Manila asserts that the Spaniards are still arrogant and not likely to surrender until the city is blown to pieces. *A telegraph operator has gone with the McCullooh to see-what can be done with the cable. Monti jo Reported Murdered; [Js[ew York, May 10—It is reported that Mmiral Montijo, who was in command of Spain's zAsialic squadron at Manila when it was annihilated by Dewey, has been murdered by Manilians.

The steamer Gussie, of the Mallory line, chartered by the government for use as a transport, will sail from Tampa for Cuba to-day loaded with arms, ammunition and supplies furnished by the United States government for the use of the Cuban insurgents. A company pf one hundred United Stattes troops from the First regiment of infantry will accompany the expedition and aid in guarding the landing of the valuable cargo, and will, if necessary, penetrate into the interior far enough to place the supplies in the right hands. The expedition will be in charge of Captain W. H. Dorst, General Miles' aide, who has just returned"from Cuba. ^ The Gussie has on board between six and seven thousand Springfield rifles, about 200,000 rounds of ammunition and several hundred boxes of provisions, consisting principally of canned meats and hard tack. The utmost secrecy is maintained regarding the point of landing, but it is believed that it will be not far from Havana. A 1-pounder rapid fire gun is mounted on the Gussie's deck. It is understood that she will be met at some point not far from Key West by a gunboat fr.om the blockading * squadron and escorted to the Cuban port. / .v The Whitney, the sister ship of the Gussie, which sailed for Dry Tortugas Saturday with two companies of the Fifth infantry, has returned. It is intimated that she will follow the Gussie to C.ub£i as soon as the arms, ammunition and supplies can be loaded. Before^ week, it. is believed, the insurgent leaders will have been furnished with arms enough for at least fifteen thousand men, and with a base of supplies established on the coast, a vigorous campaign against the Spanish'force will be inaugurated. the Premier, with the view of a probable reconstruction of the Ministry. The Queen Regent consulted late yes-tarday afternoon with Senor Montero Rios, president of the Senate, who advises a reconstruction of the Cabinet. It is increasingly probable that the Cabinet will be reformed, with Senor Gamazo included, after the lower House has adopted the indemnity bill.' Senor Sagasta denies the rumor that Marshal Martinez Campos will i*eplace Lieutenant General Daban as Captain General of Madrid. An impressive mass was held yesterday morning in the Church of St. Joseph for the repose of the souls of those slain at Cavite. The church was filled with sailors in uniform. • ; ' --'i;:- '• 0 MINISTERS HAVE RESIGNED. It is announced 4n Madrid that tlie Cabinet Minister have placed their portfolios Ux the hapds of Senor Sagasta, • 'f-.-s- "" REPORT DOUBTED. • The report that the schooner Ann Louise Lockvvood,' built in Norwalk by the late LeGrand Lockwood some thirty years ago, had- been captured by the Spaniards off Mole St. Nicholas by a Spanish wai*ship is doubted by New York underwriters. • '• • BRIEF WAR NEWS- • Plans for the immediate invasion of Cuba were pressed with great activity by the War Department; General Miles will lead the army of invasion in person, Orders for concentration of the regular and volunteer forces at Chicka-mauga and various points in the South were sent out. • > : ;' In response to a message from the President, both houses of Congress unanimously passed resolutions thanking Admiral Dewey and his men for their victory at Manila. • A bill was also passed authorizing the President to appoint another Rear-Admiral, to which rank Dewey will be promoted. The Senate voted a sword to Dewey and medals to his officers and men. " The troops to form the expedition to the Philippines are asseml: Francisco. It vi as learned that Admiral Dewey, in addition to his other successes, cap-, tured 10,000 tons of coal at Manila.^! , A »dispatch from Hong Kong says word, has been received from Manila that the Spaniards are npt likely to surrender till the city is demolished by Admiral Dewey. Belief is gaining ground in Washington that the Spanish armored squadron will not risk a battle with Admiral Sampson. ; The resignations of the Spanish Cabinet were placed in the hands of premier Sagasta, and, although they have not been accepted, the probability of a Reorganization of the Ministry is in-ci easing. The military party in the Cortes has organized for the purpose of working systematically to impress its views on the Government of Spain. Rio.ting.in the Spanish provinces is bacoming more violent and martial law is being extended all over the country. Twelve persons were killed and fifty wounded at Linares on Sunday, and the public buildings were, pillaged. - t ^ ' An armed Airiei'ican Liner (undoubtedly the Yale) pursued the* Spanish steamer Paulina, but the prize got safely to San de Porto Rico, owing, according to a Spanish report', to the intervention of a warship. The Governor- General of Porto Rico also informs his Government that he is expecting the arrival of Admiral Sampson's squadron. The converted cruiser St. Paul arrived at Hampton Roads and joined the Flying Squadron. \ ,. •' r The first of the transport ships to convey arms, ammunition and supplies to the Cuban insurgents will start from Tampa to-day. / The 13th Regiment, of' Brooklyn, was disbanded by Governor Black, and the 22d took its place at Hempstead. Disobedience of orders was the reason for the disbandment. , V ; v:. Stamford Doctors Fined. Doctors Francis J. Rogers^ Frederick Schavoir and W. E.
