The Chinese inhabitants (pre sumably a m jority) of Port Arthur left belore the engagement, those who re mained having been armed and ordered to resist the Japanese and lire upon them. This they did, and in the con fusion of the tight it was impossible to distinguish them from the Chinese sol diers. The Japanese army entering Purl Arthur was greatly excited at the sight of the fearfully mutilated bodies ol their comrades, some oi whom had been burned alive and some crucified. Not withstanding this the discipline ol the army was maintained, A number of Chinese prisoners were taken and kindly treated. The wounded who could be moved are on their way to Tokio and will arrive in a few days. Ji„»tli Came Buddeuly.
