an insult to Spanish arms.
The Americans were then bound hand

were marched to the plaza, and in the
presence of a great crowd, were aligned to

BATTLE AT GRAS PAN.
Gen. Metliuen ttscts llocr Force Ten
Miles from Hclmont.
Gen. Lord Methuen's force, advancing
to the relief of Klmhrrlry, ngnin met the
Boer army at Grns Pan, ten miles -north
of Belmont, Saturday, and a desperate
bottle, lasting many hours, ensued. The
engagement was uot ended when the ottl
oial report was ent, iut It was construed
as a British victory, despite heavy losses,
in which the naval detachment stood
more than its share. A recapitulation of
the losses by Gen. Methnen's forces at
Gras Pan shows that fifty Boers-were
killed and twice iinny wounded. The
bmtle began at U n. in., lusting until 10
a. ni. Boer losses must have been much
heavier than known. Fifty horses were
found dead where the Boers withstood
a steady rain of shrapnel. The British
did not pursue the routed forces of the
enemy, but halted one dny to rest.
The brunt of the righting In both en
gfljremcnts was borne by the Ninth brig
ade, the uhvnl brigade, the Second York
shire light infantry and First North Lan
cashire regiment. The Boer force was
composed of Transvaal and Free State
commandoj. Its artillery was command
ed by the Transvaal general, Delarrnye.
The artillery, was carried off the field, de
spite the flanking attack of tho British
cavelry. Among the killed were Com
mander Alfred 1. Ft heist en of the cruis
er Powerful, Captain Guy Senior of the
Royal marine artillery, attached to the
battleship Monarch, mid Maj. Plunibc oi
the Royal marines. Flag Captain K. O.
Prattlers was severely wouuded. The
Boers shelled n camp of Rh.xlesiau horse,
north of Crocodile riv ?r, aud captured the
horses and mules of the squadron.
Up to da'e the Boers hold as prisoners
thirty-nine ollleers, 1,237 men and sixty
two political piisoiu-rs. The total Brit
ish losses since the opening of the cam
pak'ii on Oct.. lii are 222 killed, 8S1
wounded and U7U missing, making a total
of 2,7711. About 4tH) who lire uot ac
counted, Hj- feared, were killed.
Gen. MciPu-n'a second battle foreshad
ows n hard campaign for the British. The
information sent by correspondents con
cerniutf Geu. Joubert's movements Is not
altogether reliable, and engagements may
be looked for in unexpected places,
(Jen. Jouhcrt. in nv.lnterview, declares
the British will be j.eutly wcn'uoil by
their losses, and thai a defensivivnr by
the Boers will result in guerrilla wnrfsre
the British could not long endure.
A dispatch from Rome says many Ital
ians are leaving there to join the Boers.
The Boers in their marches frequently
bait their horses aud disifiount to pray
for divine guidance aud aid. As the sec
