Special Cable? to The Tlmes-Dlspatch, Copyright, 1904.) SHANHA1KWAN. June 27.?? No doubt ,is* felt here that the battle which is to decide this campaign in Manchuria is now being fought and below Hai cheng. From New-Chwang and Sinmin-Ting practically the same story comes of desperate fight? ing all the way from Kaiping to Haicheng. From these reports it would appear that Stackelberg's corps has been cut off below Tachichiao and Kuropatktn with the bulk of his army has gone south from Haicheng to his relief. Kuroki has cut in behind Kuro palkin at Haicheng and has also sent a force estimated at from 25,000 -to ,40,000 men against the weakened- Russian garrison at. Liao Yang. The Russians up to the last advices received here stii? hold the railroad at all points above Kaiping, but are being hard pressed by at least three heavy Japanese columns; at Kaiping, Tachichiao and Haicheng so that three battles really are in progress with Tachichiao as the centre of fighting lines. The sound of con? tinuous artillery firing can be plainly heard from New Chwang and reports reaching there say that the Russians are being stead? ily driven back, that heavy rein? forcements are constantly arriving for the Japanese and that nothing short of a miracle can prevent the Japanese from capturing the im? portant strategic point, the junc? tion of the branch road which runs to "New Chwang. Practically , all the Russian troops at that place have been ? withdrawn and sent to the fight ! ing line. One late report says ! that the Russians have been j driven back to Hat Cheng, leaving the Japanese in control at Tachi? chiao and that the combined ar? mies of Kuroki and Oku are press : ing home an attack on Haicheng. < Whether Stackelberg's corps suc j cecded in withdrawing or is be? tween the two Japanese armies, this late report does not say.
