GREAT BATTLE IN THE SOUDAN. General Stewart had a most successful fight on the 17th instant, with about 10,000 of the Mahdi's forces near the Abu Klea Wells, which are about 23 miles on this side of Metemneh. The enemy's force was collected from Berber, Metemneh, and Omdurman—which place, prison- ers reported, was recently captured by the Mahdi, thus releasing the men from there to fight General Stewart. The enemy left no less than 800 dead round the square, and prisoners report the number of their wounded to be quite exceptional. The British loss has been severe but the success has been so complete, and the enemy's loss so verv heavy, that it may dishearten the enemy so that all future fighting may be of a less obstinate character. General Stewart's operations have been most creditable to him as commander. The nation has every reason to be proud of the gallantry and splendid spirit dis- played by her Majesty's soldiers on this occasion. The losses have been nine officers killed (including Colonei Bnrnaby, Conservative candidate for Birmingham), nine officers wounded, and 65 non-commissioned officers and men killed, and 85 wounded. Stewart's 'oree was 1500, all told.
