The English same, sad ? happy

an known; and after twenty years
ol Mifleting tbe harassed burgh, ra

what price they could get, the
farms their ancestors for gener?

women and their children ir; theil

them out and pOSSCSSed themselves

with a passionate lose of liberty,
the unhappy burghers once mote

revolted at that subterfuge, and
the present cue of the war orators
is to charge tin* boodini ol Boers
with a "dark design*'as Mr. Bal
lour expresses it, against tbe Kn

a* is now the fashion, to excite
hostility against the Burghers by
calling them "rehels," but that
folly has also been abandoned,
and ere Ihe war was fifty days old,
