WITH FRENCH'S COLUMN. AN AUSTRALIAN PATROL TRAPPED. R.ENSBURG, Wednesday. A patrol of the New South Wales Lancers, con- sisting of nineteen men, had an unpleasant experi- ence yesterday afternoon. They had been scouting in the neighbourhood of Norvtil'.s Farm and were returning to camp when a party of 60 Boers sought to cut them off. The Lancers immediately made for an adjacent kopje, intending to hold it against the enemy until they were relieved. It was a hard race between them and the mounted Boers. When they reached the kopje, however, they found that an- other party of Boers were in possession of it, and the Australians were thus between two fires. The enemy proceeded to shoot the Lancers' horses, though three .men managed to break through and having good mounts reached camp in safety. Of the remaining sixteen, two were killed and fourteen taken prisoners.
