The garrison at Shanghai Kwang tortured and killed 2000 officers and soldiers who had escaped from Port Arthur. It was urged that this was punishment for their cowardice. The battle at Haltcheng was charac terised by the fiercest and hottest righting that has taken place during the cam pal gu. The Japanese artillery, under Gen eral Katsura, played havoc with the Chinese, but the latter fought bravely, and rallied three times after the Jap anese infantry had cat through their ranks. The loss on the Chinese side is stated to be 500 men killed. The Japanese have occupied Kung wasel, and are also reported to have occupied Niucbang. Shanghai, Dec 24.

In opening Parlia ment, the Mikado declared, that despite the approach of winter the Japanese army was steadily advanc ing in China, and would be placed in a glorious position by its victories.

Shanghai, Dec 26; The Japanese casualties at Haltchin were 420. Ton gabakas have captured the town of Haigu and expelled the Governor. They continued their advance and burned two other towns.

The Chinese Government has as sented to the American Government prohibiting Immigrants from China, on condition that registered China men owning property to the extent of 200 in America be allowed to re turn.

The Japanese continue to follow up the advantages previously- gained, and they have achieved another decided victory. The Chinese, pressed by the enemy, were compelled to evacuate New chang, a- seaport town on the Liau tung Gulf, and have retreated to Denshodai. another account op the capture OF PORT ARTHUR. Auckland (N. Z.), Dec 27. Chi nese flies by the mail steamer show that at the capture of Port Arthur the fighting was of a most sanguinary character, and that altogether it was a dangerous and exciting business. The Japanese effected a landing with a surprisingly small loss, and owing to the stupor of the Chinese were soon within the fortifications. A series of desperate hand-to-hand encounters took place with a couple of thousand of IA Hung Chang's soldiers, who stood to their posts manfully, although their officers deserted shame fully. Upon entering the town the first thing that met the eyes of the Japan ese was a number of Coreans and others of their men, who had been captured by the Chinese before the attack began, lying headless in the street, their bodies being horribly mutillated. This sight so enraged the Japanese that no restraint was exer cised toward the enemy, and little quarter was given, most of the Chinese being killed or seriously wounded in the terrible battle which followed. This accounts for the heavy loss among the Chinese, whose cruelty to their foes was thus terribly punished. A large number of junks, which were filled with Chinese officers and soldiers, were torpedoed by the Japan ese boats and damaged to a great ex tent. The Chinese losses will never be known. The garrison in Port Arthur con sisted of at least 20,000 Chinese sol diers and seven generals, who were charged by a special decree from the Imperial Government to hold the port at the peril of their lives, and in the event of their being unable to carry out these instructions, they had dis tinct orders to blow up the forts, mag azines, arsenals and workshops, and destroy the docks, rather than let them fall into the hands of the enemy. Long range firing began on Novem ber 20tb, and as long as the Japanese guns did not succeed in working much havoc the Chinese made a show to fight, but when the whole line of war ships began to reduce the radius of the investing circle the defenders of the outer port lost heart. Before the first fort fell six generals and civil officials contrived to escape in junks. The garrison to the north west accompanied them. The junks were waiting a mile or two from the Eort to the North with all the valua lee on board, and as soon as it was recognized that the enemy were In earnest they made Jo fT Mi S U hi - mniC' ill' ANOTHER ONE NEEDED.
