A TERRIBLE STORY. j DUBLIN FUSILIERS BURIED ALIVE BY BOERS. I Sergeant T Jewiss, of the Royal Artillery, now with General Oiorv's field force, writing to his sister at Grave-send, says :— We have been here (Frere Camp) now nine, days, but we expect to make an advance on Monday to Ladysmith, and from there then to Pretoria, old Kruger's capital. And the sooner the better. God help the Boers when our fellows do get a rub at them, for the; are the most cruel men that you would dream of. They buried some of the Dublin Fusiliers alive, poor devils, because they were wounded, and the Dublins since they have been reinforced are like a lot of mad men, thirsting to get at the Boers. The other day a troop of cavalry went out reconnoitring and saw three of our troopers tied up to trees and eitch of them with 20 shots, in them. To see some of the houses that the devils have looted is shocking. Doors smashed in, furniture and goods that they could not carry away they smashed to atoms. Our Brigade of Artillery has been in two battles since we have been out here-the battle of Estcourt and the battle of Mooi River —but no casualties on our side. With- ont a doubt the Boers ftro good shots, but they can't stand cold steel. As soon as our troops are near enough to make a charge they are off as fast as their legs can carry them."
