Mr. Dupuy de Lôme to Mr. Olney.


I am informed that on the 17th instant at 8.30 p.m., by Pennsylvania Railroad, in special car No. 5841, a consignment of arms and ammunition, comprising 450 boxes ammunition, 20 boxes of rifles marked a in a diamond, has been sent to Charles Raymond, esq., Southport, N. C. These arms, I am informed, are for the insurgents in Cuba, and will be shipped probably to steamer Commodore, which left New London, Conn., a few days ago. Will return to Washington as soon as my health will permit.

Dupuy de Lôme.
