A CRITICAL MOMENT. The London Mail correspondent wires: Rens- burg, January 17. Later information with re spect to the skirmish near Slingersfontein on Mon- day shows that under the continuous roar of musketry, which prevented our men from showing themselves over cover, 200 Boers crept up the hill, hiding behind stones. Captain Orr fell badly wounded, and several men of the small force were killed. Just at this moment Captain Maddocks, of the New Zealanders, hearing the heavy fire on tho Yorkshire side of the rushed up, saw the critical situation, and gave the order in stentorian tones to fix bayonets and charge. The effect was magical. Our men rushed forward with great courage, and led by Maddocks, swept the enemy from the hills. They left their killed to be buried by us.
