Wednesday, November 8, Bays:
"Today all Is quiet. Wo havo been
bombarded pretty heavily nil week.
Friday night Captain Fltz-Clarcnco nnd
Lieutenant Swinburne, with n squadron
of tho Protectorate regiment, mado a
magnificent bayonet charge upon tho
Uoers' entrenchment, driving them
.fiom their positions, nnd bayoneting
numbers of tho Doers who must havo
lost very heavily. The chargo was
most gallant and determined. Tho
party could not hold tho trenches nnd
lost six men Jillled, two prisoners imrt
nlno wounded In their icglmcnt. Wo
expect another attack tomorrow. The
bombardment has been most Ineffec
tual. Every ono remains under Bholl
prqof cover. Bo fnr the shells have
only wounded ono man.
"Tho enemy Is using ono 91-pound
howitzer, and sown other guns from
7 to 14-poundors. Tho town Is most
cheerful nnd determined to resist nt
Inck to the utmost. Tho Doers nro en
ticnchcd on every Bldo In great num

nnd closer to the town fortifications.
Wo aro well off for provisions and wa

well known Doer commandant, told a
man with tho ambulance party that

British withdrew in Independent lines
of retreat, covered by tho flank flro
from tho Capo Police. Tho Doors con
tinued to volley nt intervals during tho

SIZING UP THE SITl'ATION.
lxndon, Nov. IB. If tho news con
tained in tho Pretoria dispatch of
Thursday, November 9, by way of Capo
Town, Friday, November 10, is correct,
nnd there is every reason to believe it
lit accuroto, as the llocr dispatches
have almost invariably hitherto ren
dered fairly nccurnto accounts, It is
clalmod hero that it implies a genoral
assault on Ladysmlth waB pending
when General Joubort's report was sent
Attention is called to the act that
tho date, November 9 ,1s assumed to bo
tho date of General White's last pig
eon post messago, announcing a renew
al o the bombardment, ifilnco which
nothing has been rocclved except ru
mors from Estcourt that tho bombard
ment was suspended November 10. It
Is clalmod that if tho Doers got tholr
forces within 1500 ynrds of the DrltUh
position, It shows they fully realized
tho'nocesslty of utilizing tho brief in
terval before tho arrivul of tho Urltlsh
reinforcements to mnko a determined
attempt to storm General White's posi
tion. To successfully ndtauco so closo to
Rumor from I-rnncc.
London. Nov. i. A Pnrl n.iner e
K toJay gleefully announces the fall jg
W and capture of Lndvsmlth. but re
ports from this source no longer
cause a rlppls of excitement. Never
theless, there will be considerable
S anxiety here until the War, Office
It or some Independent version of the K
U latest developments nt Ladysmlth is S
U known. jj
Ladysmlth, It Is pointed out, tho Doers
must havo ben most nctlvo In en
trenching and tho nearness of tho bo
sieging lines, It Is added, indicates
their readiness for tho nssault, which,
there has been a disposition in military
circles to believe, the Doers wero not
willing to undertake.
It must, hownvor, been patent to
General Joubrt that Ladysmlth would
nnt fall to tho flro of his nrtlllery, and
therefore ho had no cholco but to ns
sault the place or retlro to tho passes
of the Drakcnsburg In tho hope of In
volving tho pursuing Drltlsh in tho In
tricate fastnesses of tho mountains.
Tho cessation of the cannonade men
tlonori'In tho dispatch, and tho opening
of musketry fire Implies, It Is claimed,
that tho Doers wero obliged to stop
their artillery for fear of hitting their
own men and that nothing further has
been heard from this moment Is re
garded hero as an indication cither that
tho threatened assault was postponed
or that the result was Indecisive, other
wise, it is claimed, something further
would hnvo leaked out before now.
A prlvato messago from Mafoklng
reports that nil was well thero Mondny,
November 0. Tho details of tho light
ing nt Mcfeklng, received by way of
Capo Town nnd Mngalapyo, rclato to
the engagement of October 25, already
reported. Tho story, however, Is
pleasant rending to the Drltlsh, as It
shows the garrison was cheerful, well
provisioned and confident. Tho pos
hlblo revolt of tho Dasuto Chief Joel,
It has been announced, may join the
Doers, Is attributed to tribal Jealousy.
Thero has been a long feud between
tho half brothers Jonathan and Joel,
the hitter refusing to rccognlzo his
brother's nomination ns chief. Joel,
therefore, took an nntl-Drltlsh Bldo
ngalnet Jonathan In 1880. and commit
tal hideous atrocities. If ho Joins the
Boers, It Is prophecled, Chiefs Lero
thodl, Jonathan nnd others nro liable to
mako short work of the recalcitrants.
