Those who awaited tbo eclipse last Satur-

weather. The moon began to enter the
earth's shadow cone at exactly 0 o'clock, 41
minutes ami u seconds. The middle of tbe
eclipse occurred at exactly 26 minutes after 8
o'clock, and at (I miuutes and 7 seconds after
10 tbe moon left tho shadow. The eclipse
was interesting, like all celestial phenomena,
bit was of no special Importance from a
scientific standpoint. It was a; near total as
it ever n ached, although not a total one.
rhe scientific reports show that 999.1000 of
its diameter was in tbe shadow. Not a cloud
marred tbe effect and it was viewed by hun
dreds of our people. The next total eclipse
of the moon to bo seen iu this part of tho
world will not take place until October 16,

Umdon, lec. 18. Shortly befors
midnight this following: notice was
posted at the war office:
"Am the campaign In Natal, In the
opinion of her majesty's government.
la likely to require the presence and
undivided attention of General Sir
Heilvers Iluller, It has been decided to
send Baron Roberta of Kandahar and
Waterford as commander-in-chlof In
South Africa, with Lord Kitchener u
chief of staff.
The war office has received tho fol
lowing dispatch, dated Dec. 17, from
General Koreetler-Walker at Cape
Town:
"Slethuen reports that I.loutonant
Chanilos Pole-dell was taken prisoner
last Thursday when going, to meet a
Mac of truce. He was waving his
handkerchief In response and was un
armed. Gatacre has removed his troops
and stores to Sterkstrom from Putters
Kraal. French has established head
quarters nt Arundel. Vandermcrwe,
with u command. Is reported moving
south from Jacohsdal."
Lieutenant General Sir Charles War
ren, commanding the Fifth division of
the First army corps, has arrived at
Cape Town. It In understood that he
will procoed to Port Elizabeth.
No further news baa been received
regarding the battle at the Tugela
river. In which the British losses are
placed at 1.097. The latest accounts
regarding the battle at Magcrsfontetn
show that the retirement of the Brit
ish troops was executed with the great
est coolness and order under a heavy
Hoer artillery lire on Tuesday.
Slafeklng was safe on Dec. 6, and
Colonel lladen-Powell, the British com
mander there. Is still actively pushing
out his defenses. At that time the
Boers had offered to exchange Lady
Sarah Wilson, who was captured while
acting as a correspondent for the Lon
don Dally Mall, for General Ben VII-
joen. who wns captured at Kland-
slaagte, but the offer had been declined.
The other beleaguered garrisons and
positions are still holding out.
It Is said that If the Victoria Cross
were to be granted for every act of
conspicuous gallantry on the part of
British troops It would he necessary
to distribute tho decoration by hun
dreds. Queen Victoria has decided to remain
at Windsor Castle for the present. Not
for years before has the queen decided
to spend Christmas away from Os
borne. Her decision to remain at
Windsor, in touch with tho cabinet, Is
a measure of the gravity of the crisis
and of the anxiety her majesty feels
for the welfare of the country. She
is. nevertheless, in fair health. Sat
urday morning she took her usual
drive, and Just before dinner that even
ing she received Lofd Wolseley. who,
with Major General Sir Henry Peter
Ewart. crown equerry to the queen,
dined at Windsor.
The queen's graceful act In present
ing a flag to the merlcan hospital
ship Maine is highly appreciated by
her own peip'e. as wall as by tho
Americans In London, and the morn
ing papers express the hope that the
Incident means something more .than
a pretty ceremony
"Black wee'. ;:o Inst week 's now
universally called, has evidently arous
ed the government and the war olllco
to the full sense of their responsibility
and of the m-x-nitude of the tnsk he-
fore them. The pipers unanimously
applaud this awake.ilng. despite tho
fact that they recognize that the heroic
measures now decided upon savor ot
weakness rather than of strength.
Humor has it that the question of
expense has really been at the bottom
of the healf hearted measures hitherto
adopted, anil It Is not unlikely that Sir
Michael Hlcks-BoHch, chancellor of the
exchequer, and other members of the
cabinet will resign.
