I The Ashanti Trouble. I The following telegram from Colonel Willcoeks was received at the Colonial Office on Wednesday afternoon: Praohu, June 2fi. Major Wilkinson reached Bekwai, by way of Obuassi, Juno 19. I had written to Governor of Gold Coaat, Kumasi, saying that troops would arrive at Bekwai June 20, if possible, and I am of opinion that Governor may have received letter sent by me, as I have just received letter sent by Governor, bearing date June 17, informing me that he will hold out till June 20. This letter received by Hall at Esumeja, and forwarded to Wilkinson at Bekwai, where it arrived middle of night of June 21. Captain Hall heard firing by seven-pounder guns night of June 21, five shots, then five more. Hall fired two guns as signal. Hall further reports hearing continuance of firing. Wilkinson went immediately from Bekwai, arriving at Esumeja at dawn June 22, marching through torrents of rain. Lieutenant-Colonel Burroughes, with about 500 native soldiers, is going to the north as fast as possible, but the rivers all round in flood, and movements of troops quite impossible, except at a few miles per diem
