FRENI, CH'S REVERSE. AN OFFICIAL STATEMENT. ALL QUIET AGAIN. [PRESS ASSOCIATION WAR SPECIAL]. Rensburg, Monday. An official statement with regard to the mis- hap to the Sutfolks says :— Colonel Watson at midnight marched his force in close column to the top of the hill, which he intended to hold. On arriving there he assembled his officers, and was addressing them at daybreak, when the enemy poured in a volley at only 30 paces dis- tant. The colonel, adjutant, and two other officers, were killed. The Suffolks, having scarcely fired a shot, fled back to the pickets, a thousand yards away, someone having shouted Retire.' About 150 remained. They lost heavily, and were compelled to surrender. Since the mishap to the Suffolk Regiment General French's operations have been unim- portant. All our potiitions are held, and several reconnaissances have been made. The enemy are jealously guarding their communications to the north.
