After the removal of the Retvisan, four steamers,, the Harbin, Hailar, Ninguta. and Smngari, were anchored at the mouth of the entranca in proper position and then sunk, leaving a small channel available. JAPANESE LANDING AT XlU-CBWANCt EXPECTED. Tho Chifu correspondent of tho "Daily Express" te.egraphs that news rrvcived from Niu-chwang states that the Russians are preparing to fall back upun Mukden. There is a constant fcu at Niu-chwang of a Jap- anese attac-k.
