What makes tbe Chines cost!l!tles ex tremely dangerous Is the fact that the Chinese by a series of recently constructed forts and redoubts, absolutely command the navigation of the Amur Blver, for a dis tance of twenty versts, thus preventing Russian troop transports on the only route open, at least until those fortifications shall have been taken by tho Busslans.
