The Nile Expedition. t n f DAILY TELEGRAPH TELEGRAM. 1 KORTI, Tuesday.-I learn that one of the pri- soners stated he was at Metemneh four weeks ago and saw four of Gordon's steamers lying along side the bank at Shendy. The story, if true, must mean that Gordon is on the outlook for the relief column. One battle with the Mahdi, and the end of the enterprise may be achieved within a fort- night. Unless the rebels resist before Metemneh, our arrival there will practically mean the relief of Khartoum. ["STANDARD" TELEGRAM.] URTI, -i-uesciay.—The reports of the prisoners are that Metemneh is occupied in strength by the Mahdi's army. Some put the force at 2,000, others 5,000. The rebels have thrown up an entrenchment, and are prepared to receive us. The prisoners admit that the whole of the population to the south are now favourable to the Mahdi. (h DAILY NEWS TELEGRAM.l KORTI, -^U4S(lay.—A native report-declares that the Gakdul welk were jn the hands of a hostile band a few days behre General Stewart's dash on them. [" DAILY CHICUI:" TELEGRAMS. 1 ilOKTl, Tuesday.-The firt, division al tb. Naval Brigade are to proceed to Gakdul. They will start on Thursday, taking a Gardner gut with them. Three companies of the light division of the Camel Corps will escort the convoy, which will leave for Gak- dul on Wednesday. It is not yet known whether Sir Herbert Stewart will accom- pany the convoy, or wait until Lord Wolseley starts later on. General Stewart assured his chief that there is plenty of forage to be obtained all along the route to Gakdul. He lost only twenty camels on the march to Gakdul and back, and not a man fell out of the ranks. It is believed that General Stewart's report to his chief will have the effect of expediting the general advance. GENERAL EARLE'S CAUP, Monday. — Major- General Earle formally assumed com- mand of the river force to-day. The squadron of Hussars, just arrived with the remainder of the mounted men, went out a con- siderable distance to-day. The whole district seemed entirely deserted, and no trace was found of a hostile force. The cavalry proceeded as far as the Terai cataract, ten miles from Han- dab and within four miles of the fourth cataract. Some officers ascended a hill known as Jebel Hulkeh, and made some capital sketches. The South Staffordshire Regiment commenced building a zareba, to-day. They will advance to a new camp which has been specially selected for concentrating the various infantry regiments as they arrive.
