TRANSPORT ON THE ROCKS. ISMORE AGROUND NEAR CAPE TOWft ■ DISASTER AVERTED BY THE HELP OF TWO MEN OF WAR. THE TROOPS LANDED. nonSES HAVE TO HE LEFT ON BOARD. The unpleasant, news conies in an official message from the War Office thnt one of the hired transports, the Isinore, struck on rocks in St. Helena llay. Fortunately,no lives were 10,,1;. Two of her Majesty's warships were close al; hand, and by their prompt, assistance, together with that of the transport Columbian ami several lighters, all the troops were safely conveyed ashore. These troops comprised a squadron of the lOLli Hussars and one troop of a second squadron, together with a battery of Field Aitillery and a company of the Army Medical Corps. As the Iwrses had to he left, Oil board, and the guns I belonging to the R.F. A. battery would naturally be securely packed far down in the transport's hold, there is still danger that, a considerable and serious injury may he inflicted on our South African army. The chief news as to the movements of our troops in the Transvaal campaign comes in the meagre official dispatches. Lord Methuen, we learn, is waiting at Modder River for the recon- struction of the bridge there. Reinforcements rue being hastily pushed on to IiiIii. It is plain from the heavy list, of casualties that these additional men were badly needed. Mafeking, we learn, was all rigid, on the 17th of last month, and at Kimberley a sort ie conduct ed on Noveiiiber 28 (the very day of Metliuen's victory) was so successful that a Boer laager was captured. Lord Methuen is able to communicate with Kimberley by flashlight. The advance for the relief of Ladysmifch is said to have hegun, hut simultaneously we learn that the bridge at Coleiiso over the Tugela has been destroyed, so that the advance of our troops may be seriously hampered.
BOERS TRYING TO STIR UP SEDITION. CAPE TOWN. General Metliuen's victorious advance towards Kimberley is timloubledly beginning to affect the Boer plan of campaign, and probably explains to u certain extent the enemy's retirement from the Mooi River. The continued presence of commandoes, nrgentty needed elsewhere, in the border districts of Cape Colony tends to confirm the opinion that the Boers are determined to do their utmost to recruit the Dutch Colonials, and, while it is illlpossible to obtain exact statistics, it is absolutely certain that the Dutch have joined the enemy in great I numbers, which are still increasing. GENERAL BUI.LER'S MESSAGE EFFECTIVE. They are, however, mostly drawn from the younger members of the community. General Buller's message clearly indicating the punish- ment for disloyall,y having restrained the actual holders of farms from openly siding with the enemy, owing to the fear they now have of seeing Lheir property confiscated. There are clear pruofs that the loyalty of the Border Dutch has been unable to withstand the proximity of the Boer commandoes. The present situation, in fact, more than justi. fies the statements made before the war regarding Dutch disaffection. STRONG UNDERCURllENT. Many of the liritish colonists in the Border district have had to sutler, but. all feel the greatest confidence in Sir Alfred Milner, and are con- vinced that their wrongs will be righted and com- pensation obtained. The rest of the Colony is apparently quiet, but there is a strong iiii (lereiii-rejit of sympathy with the Boers. On the whole, position of affairs presents ft liope- ful aspect.. The Boers, as well as the British, [ have underestimated their opponents, and every engagement tends further to establish hearty respect for the prowess of our troo.
BOERS FIRE ON WOUNDED. ORANGE RIVER. Two ambulance trains have arrived here from Graspan, and have proceeded for Capetown with the wounded, most of "hOIlI are doing well. Many marvellous escapes from death are recorded. One man was hit in the right thumb, the little linger, the tip of the ear, and grazed under the chin. In fact, he was struck four times, but scarcely marked at all. Many of the wounded declare positively that they were fired upon by the Boers while lying on the ground. One of the Boer prisoners brought down was found to be in possession of a British cypher message. lie bad been private secretary to Commandant Debeers, and explained that the message had been found on a despatch rider captured between Orange River and Kimberley. A copy of the message had been made by the commandant's orders.

REPAIRING WRECKED BRIDGES. HOW THE MILITARY AUTHORITIES ARE SETTING TO WORK. Even if the Boers have destroyed the railway bridges, the reparation of them will not be a question of a long timf. Major Gironanl before lie left England was jirovided with plnlls and sections of all the bridges likely to be destroyed, and over £100,000 has ibeeu expended in material which lias been pro- vided for the restoration of t hose blown up. At first the repairs will be executed in wood— i.e., trestles will be constructed as IIsed by the American engineers in the Civil War. LtU.er on these will be replaced by more permanent structures.
MARINES' GALLANTRY AT GRASPAN. CArie TowN. Additional details which have been received Itere of tfifllighting oil the Western frontier shows how severe was the task imposed upon Lord Metliuen's column. Both at Belmont and Enslin most of the kopjes were over 200ft. in height. They were furrowed with trenches, and the ground had been carefully jueasured to find the rnngss. The enemy were we" informed of the British movements, and had carefully prepared their plan of campaign.

THE WAR. JiOERS DRIVEN FROM BANK TO BANK. The tccoiiti(,s of the Modder River battle which have now come to hand show what a terribieconfhct it must have been. The Boers appear to have been strongly posted on both banks, and it would have been impossible to have routed them bad not our artillery been stronger tllld IlIore dTiciclIL tllIIII theirs. One of the most disastrous incidents of the day was that in wldch the Scots Guards became the victims of the manoeuvre which served the Boers in such good stead at Graspan. were warellillg forward Oil tile right 1111111, towards the little town under the impression that it was evacuated, as for some time no reply had been made to our fire. When they got. within close range the, Boers suddenly poured forth a sus- tained and terrific volley and again and again repeated it while the Inqdess Guards rushed back its fast as they possibly could for cover. The British attack was delivered with every disadvantage of position, and nothing but per- sistent bravery could have surmounted the diffi- culties. The IJoer line was semi-circular in form, and extended for eight miles, 60 that as the British advanced they were enfiladed on both sides. Ultimately part; of the 9th Biigade succeeded in crossing the river about, dusk, and lield the pogi- tion there until nightfall. In I,he morning it was found that the enemy had silently evacuated the position, and thus the British force found itself in possession of tJOth sides of tlleil river. It was a splendid piece of daring work, as great an >\chievement as ever appeared in the annals of Clio trliiy.
BATTLE OF MODDER RI VEIL CAPE TOWN. The reports which have reached here describe the Modder River light as the fiercest and most terrible of the campaign. The Boers, who had taken up a strong strategic position, were only discovered hy tile Naval Bdgllde at a distance at wllich a IJiscllit conhl be thrown. The division had intended moving ill the direc- tion of Jacobsdal, but the discovery of the enemy brought them in a sudden swerve to the river wiLli the Guards Brigade 011 the right flank, and the Ninth Brigade IIlId Remington's on the left, supported hy South Wales Lancers, the 9Lh Lancers, find Mounted Infantry. The 17th and 18t.li Batteries opened the lire at half-past six in the morning, and iu a moment there was a terrible fusillade. The enemy, who were 11,000 strong, seemed to spring up everywhere, pouring iu a red-hot fire from some 20 guns. Our naval glllls dill line execution, and in the midst of the din the Scots Guards advanced and nearly fell into the enemy's lille-pits before dis- covering them. There was only a brief retirement, however, and thell the combat became fiercer. Early in the afternoon the 1Sth Battery arrived, having done a record iiiareli from the Orange River. With wild cheers the artillery fire was re-doubled, and so the great fight roared on until j nightfall. Part of our force had gained the opposite bank in the teeth of the eiieiiiy's lire, and there they held their post all night. The men slept armed, and at daybreak found the last strong position on the Kimberley route was ours, for the enemy had entirely withdrawn.
VICTORY LARGETY DUE TO OUR ARTILLERY. MODDER nIVER. Onr staff estimates that the enemy's loss in the last fierce light was at least 400 killed and wounded. Our loss cannot be less for the battle was the most prolonged and desperate of the campaign so far. Two trains of wounded have been sent south to-day. BOERS' DESPERATE STUBBORNNESS. The stubborn way in which the lioers stuck to their positions cannot be too highly praised. It look many hours of splendid artillery work 011 our side to compel them to clear out. Our gunners were decidedly superior to the Boer artillerymen, and our victory is largely due to tlieiil. Our losses were chiefly incurred in the" rushes of the infantry. Those rushes iu each case led our men intoa zone of fearful lire, but, they were absolutely necessary for the work that had to be done. ANOTHER RATTLE IMMINENT. Our fellows suffered terribly from the extreme heat of the day, t he lack of wafer to drink, and the inevitable fatigue of incessant movement. The severest fighting was between eight and nine o'clock. The Boers have retired upon Spyt fonlein, where another severe engagement, is imminent.
GATACRE SPOILS THE IJOER RECKONING. The Exchange Company's special telegram from Sterkstroom, says General Gal.acro has entered Molteno and has taken out, great, quantities of flour and wheal, which were in danger of being coiiiiii,iiideci-eti I)- These have been brought into camp, and it is regarded ItS a line piece of work. Molteno is on the East London—Burghersdorjt lino, 50 miles from the Free State border.
LATE NEWS. FRIDAY MORNING. There is more serious news from Lady smith. The enemy are concentrating their artillery fire and doing some damage. Rations are being reduced all round. It is stated that on Monday the enemy made a deaperats attempt to capture the place. There was a furious bombardment for several hours. At last the Boer guns were silenced and the British made a sortie. Hard fighting ensued, and the Boers retired, having lost several hundreds killed and wounded. News from the town up to Tuesday says that all is still well. The bombardment continues, but is ineffective There are still reports current that the Free State burghers are returing in large numbers, presumably to protect their own country against the British] advance on the west and south. A telegram from Lord Methuen states that he has resumed command. He is in nightly com- munication with Kimberley. The health of the troops is excellent. The Engineers are re- pairing the bridge. x rom Kimberley comes an official report of the sortie of the 28th ult. Colonel Kekewich states that the numbers of the enemy round the town are increasing. From Kimberley the Boers are to be seen making great preparations to defend Spy tfontein. I:)
BOLIVIAN SOLDIERS MASSACRED. The United States Minister in Bolivia has advised the State Department of a horrible massacre of Bolivian soldiers by Indians. One hundred and twenty Bolivian troops had been ordered to put down a rising of Indians, and the commander of the expedition demanded from the Mayor of Molioza the loan of a priest, to accom. pany the soldiers. The demand was refused, whereupon the troops arrested and imprisoned both the mayor and the priest. The latter, however, managed to summon a number of neighbouring Indians, who, at his instigation, surrounded and captured 103 of the soldiers. The priest then celebrated mass, and immedi- ately afterwards incited the Indians to massacre their captives, which they did with alacrity.
