Situation in the mid lands. London. January 10. Advices from Cape town affirm that the Advance of the marauders in the Western portion of the Colony has been checked and the Boers Are ret trips to Calvinia where the main commando has remained for several Days. Only 100 dutch colonists have joined commandant Krul Zinger s commando. The position in the Midland Section of the Colony is considered grave. London january 20. Sixty seven of the dutch residents at Aberdeen have joined the invaders. Reinforcements for the front. The Steamer Canada 8,806 tons sailed for the Cape yesterday with 1,300 regular troops and 520 men who have joined . Baden Powell s mounted police. More mounted men wanted. It is interesting to note that or. A. G. Hales has Over and Over again insisted upon the necessity of sending Many More Nown tit nun to the front in Booth Africa. The subjoined. Letter Tram Jat endure rot ten on hover Ber 3t by a renter s correspondent is also am cant in connect Boa with de wet s movements a consider table amount of Codora fats been. Manifested by than. In a position to know and appreciate die state of things lest the dutch m the Northern portions of the Colony should join him if he succeeded in crossing the Boundary. On thing this War has taught us is that it is absolute by impossible for a britishers to fathom the Depths of a dutchman mind. He a As unknown a Quantity u a chinaman. Holding in Force splendid positions he has time out of num Ber run away without firing a shot he has ran us head against Stone Walls of British forces. Between the taking of Bloedo Fonetia and the occupation of pre Toria he hardly opposed our Advance. The mement Pretoria is taken he fights a Stern ngut outside to protect nothing and. Apparently to the British mind to Gam no thing. When to other minds the game would be considered up he begins to show Gas of greater activity. Even at the pre sent nth rent Cut off from regular supplies with a Lungi dec amount of Anu motion he fight Frith greater Zeal and Pluck and a Tilv than be has yet shown during the Revar and it is for this curious twist in the dutch mind that it k impossible to prop Busy is to the chances of a rising m the Lorth it the Colony. Such a Tusk n course would be suppressed without much difficulty. But at the same time it would Ante us no Little anxiety. Soldiers discuss ing the Mahaba Ibie brine Forth apparently unanswerable arguments any too Suica should not rim. If they say after the reverses we received at Magers Montem Stor Beik Aad Townso Wane a great por Tion of the Northern part of the Colony was m the hands of the Boers the dutch did not Rue in Masse surely it. Is impossible that they should Rise now that we hold every railway and All tace principal towns in the two annexed republics. But the old resident in South Africa shakes his Bead and answers with the sooth african proverb it is impossible to say. What a Monkey or a dutchman Wib do next at present the crying need is for More mounted men. We Nave Bode aria inadequate mounted forces to. Capture de wet we can always drive him off but we an too few to surround him. What is strenuously advocated by those officers who have been fighting him for the last few months is the formation of five or six Strong mounted columns who should Start from different Points fsr apart Dew to driven off by one of hmm is pretty certain to fall into the Anas of another and we might Hope to end his Tei successful career. It would be a pity if the Porfie at Home began to console the Mehes with the idea that the War is at an end. As a Copybook War owned on according to strictly scientific principles no doubt it is at an end. But we have opposed to us As the elements of a pm toned resistance. I would be quite by submarine Telegraph received january. 21, 2.30 am Wiffing to Wager that if the general com manding in the Orange River Colony could be Given 6,000 mounted troops and some More infantry to guard Oon roys de wet ind Stony could be captured killed or driven out of the Orange River Colony within three weeks. The Cost of the War 1 enormous week by week. The Cost of 1,000 mounted men horses and a moment is but a Small item compared to a weeks expenses. It is obvious even to the Man who wily looks on. The � s. D. Ade of us War. That such a step would be a Triumph of Linance As it would undoubtedly be a Triumph of strategy happily the War office authorities do not teem to have been altogether lulled into a take Security. They have been sending out detachments of men in a regular Stream ind the Only misfortune is that the number if horses available is by no Means equal to the requirements of the Case. A new body at men known As the Rand rifles has been locally organized and the regulations for its of guidance Hare been issued.
