The government ha ut last ronaented to mobilise a force, which General Iluller la credited with having demanded all alonn aa an essential of success In South Africa, namely. 10.000 mounted Infantry. This morning the war office Issued an order to the effect that tbe government had decided to raise for South Africa a mounted Infantry force, to be called "Imperial yeomanry," and to be re cruited from yeomanry', volunteers and civilians (toesesslng the requisite nuall flcationa.

I A press dispatch from Chieveley camp sas: me relief column con tinued Its advance from Chl-jveiey oarly yesterday. Intending to aseall the Boer positions, which were known to be very strong to the westward and northwest of Colenso. During the two preceding days the Boers had allowed themselves to be bombarded without condescending to reply with a single shot. They further gave half an hour's opening yesterday without an exchange, when suddenly they belch ed out a stream of fire from all their entrenchments, beside opening a fear ful cannonade with all their quirk firing and siege guns, which were posted from end to end of their po sitions. When their presence and actual positions had been determined the British naval brigade commenced shelling all the ridges north of the town with marvelous accuracy. At this time the artillery attached to General Hart's division waB busy among the entrenchments on the hills on the BrltUh left, under cover of which the Irish Infantry brigade maroliPd out iu xtended order to cross the river and attack. Undoubtedly aiming at this battery, the Boers sent several shells near the ambulance train, which was forced to change Its position. While this was transpiring tho field artillery on the right were buss shell ing the ridges of the Boers' left flank, their excellent practice attracting tho nttent!onx)f the Boers, who retaliated with a scathing fire, almost demolish ing all the guns and stampeding the gun carriage and limber horses. The Boers excuse themselves for fir ing on the stretcher bearers by assert ing that two squads of the Connaught Hangers took cover under the civilian bearers of the tied Cross, and that this act drew tho Boer Are, three being killed and several wounded. Special reports regarding the fight ing at the Tugola river are still filter ing through, but all the newspapers complain t lint these are severely cen sored, and It la still Impossible to get nn accurate iden of the battle.
