THE RECENT FIGHTING IN THE SOUDAN. A Times' telegram, dated Wady Haifa, June 26, says The messengers sent to Dongola returned here yesterdaty, bringing a letter from the only European merchant there. The writer, alluding to the recent fight near Merawi, says it is true that a considerable number of Shaggias were killed by the Bashi-Bazouks. He declares, however, that these were not armed rebels, but peasants who had refused to pay taxes. Many of the persons killedwere women and children. The peasants, doubtless, sought to defend themselves, for two Bashi-Bazouks were killed and ten were wounded. The letter continues The Mudir went to Merawi after the fighting, which lasted from May 17 to May 20, and restored order in the district. He then returned to Oordeh, or New Dongola, one day's march distant from Old Dongola, whence it is half a day's march to Debbe, and one day and a half's march to Merawi. Berber is three days' march from Merawi across the desert. The news of the fall of Berber has reached Dongola, but it is not believed. The various reports agree in stating that the rebels around Berber are without firearms. About 200 of the inhabitants of Oordeh are in a great state of alarm, and are very anxious to escape, but are restrained from doing so by the Mudir. Of the 600 Bashi-Bazouks enrolled only 150 are fit for service the rest are mostly boys, unable to carry a rifle." The writer of the letter is himself anxious to leave Oordeh, but fears being robbed en route, even if he should succeed in leaving the town.
