A num^r of Bo lePorted to have squatted ,aCC^ a^oid border. Commandant SchoelIh,1,U who has returned to Pretoria from the boruer, \Ha.tes that there will be no trouble vnatever. The settlement, if insisted on, wnl be accepted in {u-;i reliance that eventually justice will be done by the British Government. The report that Boers were leaving the neighbour- hood of Pretoria for the border has been officially denied, but the hasty despatch of Commandant General Cronje and Commandant Schoemann to Ihe border with the object of preventing the passage of armed men would tend to prove that the Government anticipated some such move- ment, and private advices received at Capetown and Eimber'.ey fully confirm the report. It is also reported on good authority that recruiting has been going on quietly m the Orange Free State as well as in the Transvaal. A Barkly West telegram to the Argus states that friendly Boers have said that war will ensue if the Goshanites are forcibly evicted, and that Englishmen living in the Transvaal must either take the side of the Boers or leave the country. The gunboat Goshawk has hoisted the British flag at Fort Durnford, in Zululand, in order to show clearly that the territory is under British Protection. There is an extremely severe famine in central Zuluiand.
