GERMAN COLONISATION IN WEST AFRICA. ATTACK ON THE NATIVES OF THE CAMEROONS. TWO HOUSES BURNED. l" REUTER'S TELEGRAM.] COLOGNE, SATURDAY. The Cologne Gazette publishes a telegram from its correspondent at the Cameroons, dated St. Vincent the.9th of January, whichsays:â"The German war- vessels Bismarck and Olga reached the Cameroons on the 18th of December, and on the 20th landed 330 men with four guns. This was done because the inhabitants of Hickory Town and Foss Town had driven away King Bell, threatened the mer- chants, and burned Bell Town. Hickory Town offered very little opposition, and was taken with out loss. An officer belonging to the Olga having learned that some of the inhabitants of Foss Town had taken prisoner Woermann's agent, Pantanins, attempted to rescue him with his division. The men landed under a heavy fire from Bell Town, and stormed and carried, with the loss of one killed and several in- jured, an acclivity a hundred feet high. Sixty men held the plateau at the top for two hours against 400 of the enemy firing from the bush. When supports arrived from the Bismarck, Foss Town was stormed with cheers and burned down but in the rveantime Pantanins had been mur- dered. On the 21st of December Foss Towc, which was in ruins, was again occupied and on the 22nd of December the Olga, steaming along the river, bombarded Hickory Town. Order is now fully restored."
