A dlspalch from Durban aaya : The
Boers have completely invested New
Castle , and no communication can
be had with that place. Gsn. Colley
Is perfectly helpless , and it is believed
that only the arrival ol reinforce
ments can relieve him or prevent his
destruction , should the Boers give
battle. All the telegraph lines from
New Castle have been cut , and news
can only be obtained by epecial
messengers. The rrglment of hussars
which was on Us way from Durban to
New Caatle , to reiuforca Gen. Colley ,
la reported to have stopped en the
road. The cause is not known , but it
is pres'umed that they found them
selves unable to cope with the Boers
south of New Castle , and halted to
await the arrival of troops from Dur
ban. The story that the Boers made
overtures of peace in response to Lord
Kimberly's dispatch , is doubted.

day , a manifesto from Mr. Parnell
was read. It ia a thoughtful and
strong document. Parnell states that
ha has decided to remain in parlia
ment , which is his poet of duty dur
ing the present crlei ? . The movement
in America in favor of the land
league , Mr. Parnell eiys , is capable of
immense davelopmeut. But this will
depend upon tha stand made and
maintained in Ireland. If there Is
flinching at home , disastrous results
will be produced in America. If the
friends of Ireland in America eeo h er
sons standing firm In their own coun
try , undergoing imprisonment and
death in her service , they will not fall
to support them with money , men
and moral influence. Parnrlt recom-
mands vigorous agitation in bahalf of
Ireland in England Scotland. A
junction of the English and Scotch
democracy end Irish nationalists will
prove irresistible , and help will
continue to come from America. Mr.
Psrnell ends his address by asking ten
ant farmers to proaervo-their'unity of
action , insisting upon their rights ,
while refraining from acte of violence ;
and to be firm in the belief that vic
tory will al last crown their efforts.

p. m. Iho Pioneer Preas publishes
an extract from a private letter from
a gentleman in Helens , Montana , who
fears he will loose all his cattle and
sheep He saya the territory Trill
loose at least one-fourth cf all its
stock both cattle end sheep. The
snow in most places is three feet deep
and often from nine to twelve feet.
Cattle with sufficient remaining
strength will often follow a load of
hay cjming into market fifteen and
twenty miles , with the hope of catch
ing a stray bit. The streets are full
of dying animals. Fifty died the other
day all in a lot just outside of town.
I fear this last snow will finish all. It
has snowed every day for soveu dayj.

ST. PAUL , Minn. , February 16 4
p. m. Major B. A. Brackett , deputy
U. S. marshal , and Col. I. D. Uur-
ney , who have returned to this city
after being snow-bound fourteen days
at Appleton and vicinity , Big Stone
county , bring fearful reports of the
situation in that section. They visited -
ed as many farmers as they could
reach , and describe their condition as
moa : deplorable. Many of the dwell
ings were shuntiep , creeled to. fill
the requirements of tha homestead
law. These were completely covered
with anew , tgross and entrance being
by tunnels. Most of the families were
entirely out of wood , bad consumed
all their hay for fuel and wore now
burning unthreshed wheat for cooking -
ing _ purposes owing to the fact of
their houses being partially or com
pletely buried in snow. There was on
those he visited no real suffering from
cold. But should another real cold
spell visit them before an opportunity
is given them to replenish their fuel
supply , there must , ha says ,
be terrible suffering and
great loss of life. So far aa known ,
when Maj. Bracket ! left Appleton
there had been only ona death from
freezing. Appleton has a population
of between 400 and 500 , ahd it was
estimated that there was not more
than half a cord of wood and two to
three tons of coal in the whola town.
The hotel had but three sticks of
wood. All , however , are economizing
on fuel and arrangements had been
made to secnre a fresh supply from
a poplar grove , a few mllea distant ,
and if the worst should come there
are the railroad buildings and ware
houses , the destruction of which for
fuel is already being can vasred. But
the scattered settlers have no such
modus of relief aa thia , and their pos
sible fate is fearful to contemplate.
