In view of these movements I am satisfied
there is fun or work ahead. The reputation

TROOrS EN KOCTK TO THS BORDER.
Toronto, January 31. I briefly telegraphed
you to-day the particulars of the new Fenian
bcure. The Government Is now hurrying troops
to the frontier from London and Hamilton.
Sixty rounds of ball cartridge have been Issued
to volunteers and regulars at London, Toronto,
Hamilton, Hnd other points. From their move
ments, and private information I have received,
it ia evident a raid or invasion on the western
border is near, and that the time has come for
me to repair to the point where the raid will
occur. I leave here to-morrow for lort Huron,
where I shall remain as long aa there is a pos
sibility of that being the point of inte rest.
THE THREATENED POINTS.
For three or four days past there have been
strange and exciting rumors afloat as to Fenian
combinations on the f rontier and the intentions
of the Canadian Government; but no reliance
was placed on them until yesterday, when a
despatch passed over the wires stating that the
8weeneyi.es were collecting on the western fron J
tier. Yesterday the military forces all over the
upper province were on the q'ti vive, and a por
tion of them are now moving to the front.
The general impression in the Cunadian mind
is that a small band of Fenians are preparing a
raid upon Barnia or Windsor, lor the purpose of
embroiling the Uuited 8tates and Eugland in
difficulties that may result in war between the

may be regarded as certain. Lcttcrn have been

cognition of Maximilian by (he United States,
