TO-DAY'S WIRES. I Boer Movements near I Estcourt. ENEMY SHORT OF PROVISIONS. FURTHER TRANSPORT ARRIVALS, I DURBAN, Tuesday, 2.6o p.m. Authentic news has reached here of the arrival of a Boer commando on the Mooi River twenty-one miles below Estcourt. They were discovered soon after daybreak this morning. The enemy was not in large force, and it is con- jectured that his object was for looting and damaging the railway and telegraphs rather than making any attack upon British pots though a feint against Estcourt in the rear was probably part of the programme. A large number of scouts on our side were out all the morning scouring the country. They located the Boer camp near the Mooi not long after dawn but before a reconnoitring party came up the Boers struck their camp and moved off. Their whereabouts at present is unknown. The commando was an isolated one. All the passenger trains going up from Maritzburg are preceded by an armoured engine, but all the trains are running irregularly. The Mooi river region is now crowded with farmers and their families. They are driving their flocks before before them to save them from capture by the enemy. The scarcity of supplies in the Boer camps has probably j driven the enemy to'make this raid into the Mooi Valley. The transport City of Cambridge arrived yesterday, and her troops were forwarded to the front last night. A handsomely furnished ambulance train was also sent up.
