NEWS FROM BULLER. TO SEIZE SPION KOP. The following was issued by the War Office on Wednesday morning From Sir Red vers Buller to Secretary of State for War. Received January 24. SPEARMAN'S CAMP, JANUARY 23. Warren hold the position lie gained two days ago. In front of him at about 1,400 yards is the enemy's position west of Spion Kop. It is on higher ground than Warren's position, so it is impossible to see into it properly. It can only be approached over bare, open slopes. The ridges held by Warren are so stsepthat guns cannot be placed on them, but we are shelling the enemy's position with howitzers and field artillery placed on the lower ground behind the infantry. Enemy reply with Creusot and other artillery. In this duel the advantage rests with us, as we appear to be searching his trenches and his artillery fire is not causing us much loss. Au attempt will be made to-night (Tuesday) to seize Spion Kop, the salient feature of which forms the left of tnemy's position, facing Trichard's Drift, and divides it from the position facing Potgieter's. It has considerable command over all the enemy's entrenchments.
