Rejoicings m Poland.
London, May 30 The Japanese Government reports that the vessel sunk at Formosa was British, not American. The Censor at St. Petersburg still withholds news of the defeat. The only statement sanctioned is:—"An engagement is m progress, and the following telegram, purporting to emanate from Shanghai, has been received:—'News has been received that seven Japanese ships, two of them armoured, and four Russian have been been sunk. It is confidently believed here that the Japanese are awaiting the publication of Rozjestvenski's despatches from Vladivostock before admitting the extent of their own losses.' " The reports of the defeat which have reached Warsaw were received with illconcealed joy, the Poles anticipating that they will now obtain concessions that would otherwise be withheld.
