GARRISON SURPRISED. BOERS REPORTED DRIVEN OFF. The Central News states that the Boers made desperate efforts to capture the town, but were driven off. The assault was made at midnight by a commando of 250 Boers. The attack was a complete surprise, as the presence of the enemy in the vicinity was not known. Most of the garrison were asleep, and several were killed in their tents. The garrison con- sisted of only one company of the Capetown Highlanders, numbering 52 rank and file, and they had been only a week at Jacobsdal, having been sent to the town from Modder River camp. Corrected returns give the casualties as fourteen killed and thirteen wounded. The unfortunate affair has created a painful im- pression in Capetown, where many of the victims have relatives and friends.
