I War Items. I The Lord Mayor and the 8herifft of the City of London have received His Majesty's command to be present at the Horse Guards' Parade on Wednesday next, when the King will present the South African War Medals. An appeal, bearing the signatures of the Arch- bishop of Canterbury, Earl Roberta, Lord Milner, Admiral Sir Harry Rawson, and the Archbishop of Cape Town, has beeu made for funds to erect in Cape Town", building which shall sene both as a memorial to those who have fallen in the I"outh African War, and as a thank-offering for those whose lives have been spired," and it has been decided that the tribute shall take the form of the eastern portion of the new cathedral about to be erected in Cape Town. The new cathedral," say the signatories, will be regarded, we trust, as a pledge of the responsibilities, both of the Church and the Empire, towards the future well-being of South Africa, as well as a glorious temple for the service of God, and a noble memorial to the courage and heroism of the fallen." The icheme has the warmest approval of His Majesty the King, and thoso who make the appeal are authorised to state that her late Majesty Queen Victoria "took a great interest in the success of the proposed memorial." The sum required will be at least 430,000. The Secretary of State for War understands from Lord Kitchener that not more than 5110 old Yeomanry now remain in the field in South Africa, and that they will be sent home shortly. The War Office on Tuesday night issued the following casualty reports. The undermentioned were dangerously ill, suffering from enteric fever whore not otherwise stated :-At Krooustad, June ist-4th Company Imperial Yeomanry. 26,373 Private T. Johnson and Private F. Wakefield (number roisaiNg). At Gerrniston, June 1st-1st Welsh Regiment. 5,349, Private W. Sutton. At Harrismith, June 1st—4th Company Imperial Yeomanry, 9,814, Corporal R. W. Hanson. A dashing exploit by a small British force is reported from the Trausvaal. A portion of Com- mandant Beyers' commando, numbering 400, was surprised and defeated by 240 British under Colonel Wilson, near Warmbaths, losing 37 killed. The British loss were 3 killed and 15 wounded. The enemy resisted stubbornly for a time, but on our troops pressing home the attack they broke and fled. We captured 8,000 cattle and 18 wagons. The prisoners numbered 100. Commandant Beyers is now without transport and supplies.
