BOERS ILL-TREATED. PROTEST TO PRETORIA. CAPETOWN, January 13th. A fragment of the "Kimberley Advertiser," of December 2nd, just received, described the manner in which the Boer commanders persis'ently keep their rank and file in complete iguoraiK-e of what is going on and especially of their own losses in various battles. Boer prisoners brought into Kimberley agree in stating that the Boers in the field are prohibited even from visiting their comrades. The men of one laager are not allowed to wander to other camps even if they be adjacent to their own. On one of the prisoners was found a petition signed by a number of men of the Bloehof Com- mando addressed to the Executive Lt Pretoria complaining of the brutal treatment to which the men were subjected by their officers and requesting to be transferred to some other Commando. Mr Rhodes had presented a pipe and a pound of tobacco to each soldier in Kimberley.
