Loudon, June 11, 3 a. m.—The Boers
have torn up twenty-one miles of Lord
Roberts' vital line of railway between
America Siding and Roodeval. It is a
bold raid and vexatious, but it does not
disquiet the military authorities as yet,
for they expect Gen. Kelly-Kenny to
drive off the marauders and reopen the
The rapidity of the advance of Lord
Roberts cannot have permitted him to
have accumulated large reserve of stores.
Therefore the interruption of the rail
way even for a week must embarrass the
army and must bring the forward opera
tions to a standstill. Nothing has been
heard from Lord Roberts for three days.
This raid of the enemy,'the strenuous
opposition to Gen. Rundle and the nim
ble escape ot' Commandant Gen. Botha's
division have forced the war office ob
servers to tiie reluctant'conclusion that
the war is not jet over, although even
the occasional hopeful Boer sympathizer
can not see how the Boers can do any
thing to change the result,

The Boers, who had one gun,-withdrew

doubtless be renewed this morning.
Gen. Buller is expected to make rapid
progress now and to throw the weight
of 20,000 men into Lord Roberts' Trans
vaal combinations.
The war oil ice has,"received the follow
ing dispatch from Sir Redver* Buller:
"Headquarters in Natal, Juns 10 —
With reference to thy telegram of June
8 We halted yesterday to get our trains
up the pas?, whidh is very steep. I find
the enemy were abmt 2,003 strong in a
very carefully prepared location, which
the»' must have been very, disheartened
not to have held longer than they did.
They have all retired about twenty-six
miles to the northwest. I iind our
casualties were more than I lirst thought.
They were one ofiicer wounded, two men
lulled and thirteen wounded."
