He marched from here towards Rustenburg. 011 the Rustenbnrg road he met General Baden-Powell on his way to Pretoria. It was ascertained that General Snyman's commando was in the vicinity, and the two forces joined and attacked the Boers. There was not much fighting. After a slight skirmish the Boers retreated. They could not get away quickly enough, however, and General Hutton captured 150 of them. Two guns also fell J into our hands. General Methnen has fought another successful engagement at Englebrpchts Kop, near Yereeniging. He attacked a body of Boers in a strong position, and drove them off. Another case of abuse of the white flag has occurred near here. A party of Cork Militia were sent to a farm to collect rifles, when the farmer fired on them. The man had given in his submission, and undertaken not to bear arms again. —Central News. BEIRA, Tuesday. Mr. Rhodes is making a tout of all the mines I and towns in Rhodesia.

It is reported that 2,000 men of Botha's commando are hanging about. On the previous night a few Boers sniped Colonel Henry's z5 mounted infantry, but no casualties occurred. The last two days have been cold, and much rain continues to fall. The railway to the south has been restored. Lord Kitchener is here. Lord Methuen drove De Wet off on Wednesday.

Drieper beat the enemy off, and burnt their laager. Our casualties were three killed and ten wonnded. Hunter, temporarily commanding Ian Hamil- ton's column, made one march yesterday, from Heidelberg towards Frankfort, without meeting with any opposition.

Baden-Powell reports that one of his-patrols captured an influential Boer named Ray, who had been endeavouring to raiae a commando in the Rnstenberg district, and that another patrol brought in over one hundred rifles, making over one thousand rifles and one thousand inferior pieces taken during the last few days. He also states that thirty Liebteiiburg Boers arrived at Rustenburg, going to their homes from Delarey's commando.
