London, Jan. 20—General
Wolselcy telegraphs from
Korti this morning, that he re-
ceived reports from surgeons
at Gubat, stating that Stewart
is doing well. No attempt
was made to extract the bul
let. The bullet entered the
thigh and ia now lodged in
tbe region of tho groin. A
hospital tent for the wounded
and disabled of Stewart's com-
mand lias been stretched on
tho bank of the Nile. All
housed in the cosy tent are
provided with comfortable
beds obtained from the na-
tives. In view of the many
hardships and deprivations
which the wounded men had
suffered, and the almost con
stant moving they had been
subjected to, the most of them
were making wonderful pro
gress towards recovery, In
cases of about two-thirds of
the wounded the injuries were
very bad. Among this class
a great number of surgical
operations re still accessary,
As many as possible of the
wounded were sent back to
