THE BOER VERSION. A report sent from the Boer head laager outside Ladysmith on Tuesday gives the Boer version of the crossing. It states that on Monday the British, with their naval and other guns, bombarded the Boer positious ou the Upper Tmrela. The British troops crossed the river at Pont Mid Mo'er. Drifts with a view to storming the burgher portions. At Pont Drift, the report says, General Bul ger beau tiiem back, and they recrosaed the river in great confusion. At Molen Drift fighting was renewed between the British force and the Scaaderton and Joiiannesbus g commandos. The artillery cannonade was continued with more gnus and was the fierciest yet exper- ienced. On Tuesday the bombardment was rtcom- mencGd, a stid larger number of guns being eugageo. Neither Pont Drift nor Molen Drift is marked on any maps that we have seen. A later mescatxe stf-res that the British lost heavily at Pont Drift, but that on Molen Drift sJde they took a position ou a kopje of no importance. The British still held possession of the kopje, but the big gnns had ceased unug.
