London, Oct. 23. The lull in
tbo news from Ladysmith, Natal,
which was beginning to bo regard
ed as ominous, has at last been
broken by n Capo Towu dispatch
under this morning's date, Baying:
" Soonts from Moddorspruit,
having reported tho Boors in forco
on tho Helpmakaar road, General
Whito ordered out a strong forco
of artillery, mounted infantry and
cavalry. A small patrol of mount
ed infantry was shelled by the
Boers niao miles from Ladysmith
and tho Boer position was finally
located throe miles boyond Moel-
dorspruit. Tho British force is
now foar miles from the JJoers."
Tho dispa'-ch doos not civo the
date of the above occurrence, but
it must havo boon since Thursday,
whon tho last nows arrived from
Ladysmith. So, tho Boer advance
from Duodoe southward nnd from
Beater's Station eastward evident,
ly proceeded steadily in tho inter
im, and tbo engagement foreshi
dowed by tbo above dispatch may
already havo been fought.
The other news from tbo front
does not enligbton tho situation in
Natal. Fragmentary details are
arriving of tho occupation of Dun
dee by tho Boars. It is alleged that
twenty men of tho town guard oc
cupied an outpost a couple of
miles from tho town when a Boer
shell dislodged them and the tnnu
fled to a neighboring hill, where
300 Boers surrounded them and
shot tho niijority. The Boms
then outored Dauriee, dragged s-v
