The latgt adviuea Moulvad hora from Buluwnyo have greatly increased theaniiy Mt for the safety of that place. Military rm-n, acouta, Dutchmen and RnglUhmt'ti, civilian a of all clataea, veteran troopers and government official! concur In the tatementthat the governor of Cape Colony, lr Hercules Ho bi neon, baa not been told the truth If ha has noti fied the home government that Buluwayo I In no danger. It U evident to every body here that the British at Buluwayo are In a moat critical condition. Weak In No tuber. The chief point of thulr weakness la La numbers and tha InjiiHMiilty of the hordes of Matabelet gathering for the attack. Then, again, large number of Matabeles, p returned to le friend Ilea, beva by soms exouee or other eucctoded In entering the town, and It la well known that they bars planned to rise and atrlke- at -the British at soon aa the warrors of tbe Matabeles are beard outald the iine of defajnas. Most of tha Matabeles In Buluwayo g4 there by pretending to be aeeklng ths protection of tha w Id tea. and tha latter were fool la h enough to fall Into tha trap. Theae Matabeles are armed and an out break rauat soon occur. It lias been stated that Buluwayo Is hold by 1,'JOJ men; this la not correct. At stated -In theae die patches the number of fighting men at Buluwayo U uudcr 9U0 and of this simsjII number, companxl with tha 15.

' A Foruiltlabla ImipL Other dinpatchee, hoasvar, announce that a strona; force of the remaining 000 whites intendod to - laave Buluwayo Prt day moralng to attack a Mttabaie iiapi, composed of Lobengnla'a .crack lirtbetn giment, from which tha. native police, who have been shown to have started thv tbe rebellion, were recruited. ". This ' Imp! U looked up;n aa belug ths moat for ins Aa bla ia ocaoouf Matabaletand.tavpaiat f aumbera and '-wtfiotenry. -Tmase warriors have been aecretly profiting for some tlmebythet drill and tautlca of police do sorters, and aa the latter took wttbjShent their arm and ammunition and alt the other arms and ammunition they-'could' lay their hand on, tha Iiubexu regiment; always moat formidable, is likely to prove more than a match for the . email 'British force. In fact, nobody here can under stand the rashness of such a sortie being permitted, and it Is feared that the awful mistake of Isanriula may be repeated. May lla Ambuahed. The Britiah luay be entloed Into the buaiiby a feint,' and while tbey are there engaicttd with overahfilinlng numbers the main body of the Ma'.abele army may be hurled against Buluwayo and sweep over it lu upltj ot ths defenses and the rapid firing gun rt ady to receive ths enemy. Buaides, as already atatsd, the attack of the Matabolos from the outside Is more than likely to be assisted by a ris ing of the Matabttlo lnld the fortifica tions. This has boeh anticipated and guarded against aa far as possible, but people hire predict a great disaster If tbe slim British force opposing the 15,000 Matabeles is allowed to divide itself and engage In a sortls against the enemy. Tha arcat trouble at Buluwayo seams to bothattho majority of the leaders ars dashing, dire devil men, who are prons to engage tha enemy first and estimate his numbers later, generally too late.
