A CRITICAL MOMENT. The London Mail correspondent wires: Reus- burg, January 17. Later information with re spect to the skirmish near Slingersfontein on Mon- day shows that nnder the continuous roar of musketry, which prevented our men from showing themselves over cover, 200 Boers er-jpt 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 Maddoeks, of the New Zea.land«rs, hearing the heavy fire on the Yorkshire side of the hill, rushed up, saw the critical situation, and gave thci order in stentorian tones to fix bayonets and charge. The effect was magical. Our men ru-.ii. d f,,t-uU.rd with great courage, and led bv M&iid<><-KK. v.vept. the enemy from the hills. They left their killed to be buried by us.
