LORD METHUEN'S MOVEMENTS. RUSSIAN OFFICER DIRECTING BOER PREPARATIONS. The Dutch organ Ons Land states that Lord Methuen is building a railway round the Boer position at Magersfontein, and that material for the completion and extension of the line is being hurried off to the front. A German doctor who was present in the Boer lines during the fighting at Magersfontein has arrived here. He states that a Russian military officer is with the Boers advising them. He i3 paid a salary of L15,000 per annum, and has been promised a bonus of X250,000 if the Republics prove successful. The doctor also states that the Boers have now completed at Magersfontein three tiers of trenches which are connected by means of communicating trenches. All these trenches afford cover to mounted men, and the Boers are also able to move their big guns from trench to trench under pro tection of the communicating trenches. The Boers return their losses at Magersfontein as 166 killed and wounded, and at Colenso as 11 killed and 16 wounded.
