LONDON Feb 28 240 p m Gener
al Bullers account of tho tremendous
resistance lie Is encountering In his ef
forts to reach Ladysmlth has brought
public Interest with nt sharp turn from
complacent contemplation of Lord
Roberts victory to a realization of the
serious conditions still existing in Na
tal Though General Bullers lengthy
dispatch Is construed as a victory
bravely won the commander of tho
forces In Natal ftias so often reported
similar victories without achieving his
main objective that the public has
learned to contain its jubilation until
Ladysmith is actually relieved while
the long list ofcasualltles always fol
lowing any apparent gain by General
Buller Is awalted with dread and anx
iety which temporarily rob his partial
success of its acclaim
However it is the generally accept
ed belief that General Buller is deter
mined to reach General White this
time and thoughthefltages are disap
pointingly slow the nation consider
ately waits news of the relief of those
8000 besieged troops
General Bullers report shows there
Is urgent need of Lord Roberts exert
ing every effort to still furthor draw
off the Boers from Natal to tho Free
State That he will do so and is
quite likely doing so by marching on
Bloemfontcin is regarded as almost
certain by the military critics here
With tho additional GOO Boers reported
prisoners at Klmberley It seems that
the number of men captured by Lord
Roberts nearly reaches 5000
The afternoon papers comment on
the hero of Kandahars achievement
laying special stress on the gallantry
of the Canadians who according to a
Paardeberg special were actually
lighting hand-to-hand In tho Boer
trenches when General Cronjo surren
dered though this scarcely agrees
with Lord Roberts dispatch
The Queen has telegraphed General
Buller as follows I have beard with
tho deepest concern the beavy losses
sustained by ray brave Irish soldiers
and I desire to express my sympathy
and admiration of the splendid lighting
qualities they have exhibited through
out theso trying operations
Lord Roberts has forwarded an addi
tional list of the British casualties dur
ing the three days fight at Paardeberg
showing twelve billed eighty two
wounded and four missing and Includ
ing seven officers and four Canadian
privates wounded
Following Is General Bullers latest
dlspatcb referred to aboye and sent to
the War Office
HEADWATERS AND LANDWA
NIK Feb 28 5 a m Finding that
tho passage of Langowatches Spruit
was commanded by entrenchments I
reconnoltered for another passage of
the Tugola One was found for mo be
low tho cataract by Colonel Sandbacb
Royal Engineers on February 25 We
commenced making an approach there
to and on February 2G finding that I
could make tho passage practicable I
crossed the guus and baggage back to
tho south side of the Tugela took up
tho pontoon bridge on Monday night
and relald It at the new site which la
just below the present marked cataract
During all this time the troop3 had
been scattered crouching under has
tily constructed small stone shelters
and exposed to a galling shell and
riflo Arc and throughout they main
tained tho most excellent spirits
Tuesday General Barton with two
battalions of tho Sixth Brlgado and
tho Dublin Fuslleers crept about a
milo and a lialf down the banks of tho
rivor and ascending an almost perpen
dicular cliff of about 500 feet assaulted
and carried the top of Pletors Hill
TI1I3 hill to a certain extent turned
tho enemys left and tho Fourth Bri
gade under General Norcott and tho
Eleventh Brigade Colonel Kitchener
commanding the wholo under com
mand of General Warren assailed tho
enemys position which was magnifi
cently carried by tho South Lancashire
Regiment about sunset Wo took about
sixty prisoners and scattered the en
emy in all directions There seems to
be still a considerable body of them
left on and under Balwano Mountain
Our losses I liope aro not large They
are certainly much less than they
would have been were It not for the
admirable manner In which the artil
lery wa3 served especially tho guns
manned by tho Royal Naval force and
tho Natal naval volunteers
A dispatch from Arundel says that
the British troops have again occupied
Rensberg
Tho War Office has received tho fol
lowing dispatch from Lord Roberts
PAARDEBERG Feb 28 Cronje
with his family left here yesterday in
charge of Major General Prottyman
and under the escort of tho City Im
perial Volunteers and Mounted In
fantry
Later in the day the remaining
prisoners -went in charge of the Earl
of Erroll and escorted by the Glouces
ter and a hundred Imperial Volun
teers The women and children are
being sent to their homes I under
stand that great dissatisfaction was
felt by the Boers at Cronjes refusal to
accept my offer of safe conduct to tho
women and children and medical xare
for the wounded 170 of -whom are now
in our hospital Many of them are in
a terrible plight for want of care at
an earlier stage
I Inspected the Boer3 laager yes-
terday and was much struck by the in
genuity and energy with which the
position was made almost Impreg
