OONCENTRATION AT COLESBERG.
Turning, from the transcendent interest
in Ladysmith, 'the: whole war area, pre
sents a scene of important activity. The
Boer attack on General Gatacre's forces,
reported February 7th, failed, . the artil
lery, of .the Burghers, after shelling, the
camp, retiring upon' the arrival of British
reinforcements. The affair : scarcely
warrants. being called a "skirmish. The
British casualties were .one man killed
and four men wounded. The latest ad
vices. from Sterkstrom announco that Gen
eral Gatacre's cavalry is in pursuit of the
Boers. ' . ■'-.
Whilo nothing has resulted from this
affair, it indicates that' the Burghers are
fully alive to the importance of the-con
centration, which is on -the verge of tak
ing place, between the forces 'of Generals
Gatacre, Kelly-Kenny, and- French,: and
they do, not hesitate to take tho aggres
sive against established positions in an
attempt to thwart it, though it is be
lieved ' that d sufficiently' large ; body of
troops wiir soon' be /massed at Colesburg
to/ensuro the unopposed advance of tho
invading army, when it is ready to start.
That it is not prepared for this move. at
present, and. thatiall this activity is mere
ly preliminary to what is known as
"Field-Marshal Lord Roberts's main
movement," is -evidenced by a dispatch
from Cape Town, under date of February
7th, announcing that the transportation
department was advertising for oxen and
drivers.' Without these it would be hope
less to carry on the invasion, and it must
be a month before they are ready.:
;, Another "preliminary '■■ is that . General '
Roberts has only just sanctioned the for
mation . of. tho new;; Colonial Yeomanry,
consisting of a troop of 100 men. fpr each
district of the Colony, to protect the
loyal farmers. This force will be officer
ed" from among , the; local- yeomen. •'
. METIIUEN TO ADVANCE?
Opinion is divided as to whether Field-
Marshai Lord Roberts and General Kitch
ener, have, gone to the Modder river or to
Sterkstrom: General- Mac Donald's": ac
tivity in the former locality, combined
with the; belief that the Colesberg mov.e
inent is to draw off a portion of the Free
State force, has given rise to the hope
that General Methuen will shortly be en
abled to make a successful attack, re
sulting in the relief of Kimberley, while
tho gradually-thinning forces surround-,
ing Mafeking will altogether melt away.
Sir John Gordon. SPrigg, the former
Premier of Capo Colony, has cabled to
Mr. Chamberlain, the Colonial Secretary,
in' behalf of the imperialists' of Cape
Colony, . congratulating him on the.gov r
ernment's overwhelming majority in the
House of Commons, and; declaring that
the government's ' "policy, if steadfastly
pursued, will secure to South Africa, un
der British supremacy, permanent pros
perity."

RECIPROCITY WITH ITAIiY.

tion on Cottonseed-Oil.
WASHINGTON. February S.-Special
Plenipotentiary Kasson, for tho United
States, and Baron Fava, the Italian Am
bassador, for his government, at the
State Department, to-day, signed "a reci
procity arrangement under the third sec
tion of the Dingley act. This arrange
ment does not require the action of the
Senate, but it does need the ratification
of the Italian Chambers. Until tLat has
been attained it is deemed well to with
hold the text of the agreement from pub
lication. It is stated, however, that the
United States gains a considerable reduc
tion on cottonseed-oil, of which Italy is
a heavy consumer, and other staples,
while Italy, in return, secures the abate
ment of duties on still wines, argots, and
works of art. permitted by the third sec
tion of the tariff act.
