There we find our troops, both British and colonial, from the necessities of the case, divided isolated, and for the moment greatly 1 outnumbered, yet resisting with the ut ■ most heroism unprovoked opposition ot the Queen's dominions. Our imperial destinies are now being decided In Natal and Cape Colony. Constituencies that ire called on at such a crisis to elect representatives in Parliameot cannot re i main Idle spectators of a contest which, | though it be waged 6000 miles away, does mosl nearly touch us all. They have an ptional share of the national re .;■ ■usabilities and for my part I cannot doubt thai the electors whose suffrages you are asking will feel that their first duty Is to strengthen the hands of those to whom, under conditions of peculiar dif ficulty, has been entrusted the mainten ;m :e of the empire " BASUTOS RECEIVE OVERTURES FROM BOERS LONDON, Oct. 24.— The Colonial Office this evening published a dispatch re ceived from the British High Commis sioner In South Africa, Sir Alfred Milner, communicating a significant dispatch from Sir Godfrey Laigden, the British resident Commissioner In Basutoland, call- Ing attention to the recklessness of the Basutos, whom, he says, he has been try ing to calm. The resident Commissioner adds: "Our policy, however, has been marie difficult by the blustering of the Boers, who have freely threatened to attack Masuru and other stations. These threats, combined with intriguing, have con tributed to rouse excitement among the natives. I wish to place it on record that the Bqeri have unwisely attempted t i shake the allegiance of the Basutos and frustrate our efforts toward tranrjuility. ; The BoerS", therefore, are responsible for any commotion and for the alarm regard ing native Invasions which now prevail." • 'API-; TOWN, Oct 24. The following advices have been received hore from Masuru, Basutoland, dated October 2:-i: "A reliable native lately visited a laager of Orange Free State troops Just opposite Masuru. He found it to consist of wagons, surrounded by turf piled three feet high, ii' :;nticed only a few Mausers. The Boer commandant questioned him regard ing the feeling of the different Basuto chiefs, principally the paramount chief, Lorothodl, and in order to draw the com • mandant, the native replied that the na ; tives sided with the Boers. "Thereupon the commandant said the two republics wished to kill the Britishers and t-v take over and govern the Basutos, restoring) to the latter that part of the country which the Free State formerly took from them. As to the Britishers, those whom they failed to kill they would drive into the s'-a. "The commandant wished a decision on the part of Lorothodl and the other chiefs as soon as possible— whether they would titcht the Boers or British— because his contingent was anxious to help the Boers else where. He acknowledged that • n w^re afraid of the Basutos, bc < a :.-• their v-iv.-s and families, as well as their cattle, were within reach of a Basuto incursion; and he said he was prepared to enter into an agreement with the chief*, signing the same, to give a very substantial recompense to the tribesmen for assisting the Boers. Failing this, if the BasutOS would give a written under standing not to assist either side the c»m mandunt said his forces would withdraw from the Basutoland border and go to the assistance of their countrymen, where fighting was hottest. The Boera on the Basutoland frontier, according to the best information obtainable at Masuru, num ber about 2500."

The Boers hoisted the flap of the Transvaal nvMt- yryhnrg on October 18, and are about issuing a proclamation that Bechuana land now forms part of the Transvaal. This Is regarded as a move on the part of th« enemy to Induce the colonial Dutch to join the republic without incurring the risk hereafter of the charge of high treason, if the Boers are ultimately de feated. "Colonel Keckwich, on hearing of it. immediately Issued a proclamation notl ; fylng the people that if any British sub i jects were found assisting her Majesty's i enemies, either directly or indirectly, such person would be punished summarily as a base rebel.
