London, May 8, 4:20—The Boere are
everywhere retiring before the British
except on the Natal frontier and at Ma-
feking. to the inner circle of their de-
fenses. They appear determined not to
fight until Kroonstad hills are reached,
Lord Roberta ie expected to do another
forty or fifty mllea and then wait for a
time in order to bring np supplies and
repair the railway. There are one or
two hints in the dispatches from the
front that he may rest a few days at
General French’s 10,000 cavalry have
not been mentioned in official or nnof
fijial dispatches for fonr days.
It is by no means likely he is idle, and
conjecture is he is either detonring to
ward Kroonstad or raiding Ladybrand
district. Fifteen thousand British are
now operating on the western frontier
of the Free State. As the Deadlock at
Warrenton is broken and the Boers are
retreating, there is nothing formidable,
except distance, between Warrenton
The most hopeful advices from Matc-
hing, April 22, were that the garrison
would be barely able to hold ont for a
month. At that time fever was spread-
Aooording to advices from Masern,
Basutoland, several thonsand Free
Staters are north of Ladybrand, where
they are oolleoted in great herds. The
district is rioh in food for men and
horses and the Boers seem resolved not
to move northward,bnt to be preparing
to resist where they are. If they are let
alone they will menace the line of oom-
mnnioation after the main British
army has passed into the Transvaal.
The Lorenzo Marques correspondent
of the Timee says .
Commandant Snyman is so alarmed
at the prospect of having retreat ont off
that he appealed for permission to re-
tire northward from Mafeking to inter-
cept Colonel Plumer.
Smaldeel, Sunday, May 6—The
movement that culminated in the cap-
ture of Windburg and Smaldeel was
part of the great general movement ex-
tending from General Hunter on the
west to General Rundle on the east.
General Roberts’ admirable strategy
resulted in placing everywhere five
British to one Boer. Ont of what ap-
peared to be inextrioable oonfnsion of
divisions and brigades, order was
qniokly evolved and the Boers were
compelled to meet Lord Roberts nnder
What is more important ie, the Brit-
ish are now able to wait. Their front
and strong positions are safe in the
knowledge that their flanking colnmns
will advanoe and outflank the Boers.
Yesterday the Boers held a really strong
position, from whioh, earlier in the
oampaign, they oonld only have been
forced by hard fighting. General Ham-
ilton’s arrival at Wlndburg, althongh
not direotly outflankinglthe Boers,made
the position extremely unoom for table.
General Hatton’s movement on the left
was even more snooessfal than at first
Imagined. Forty Boers were killed.
The march today was short, bnt Gen-
eral Pole-Carew’s division marched 68
miles in fonr days. General Tnoker’s
division is marohing on oar left today,
and General Maxwell's brigade will be
able to oroea the river before night.
Lord Roberta has been very strict in
examination of farms, with the result
of disclosing the fact that nearly every
honse 1b a miniature arsenal. Mansers,
Martinis and abnndant ammunition is
being found. If these had not been dis-
covered, the army wonld be leaving in
rear material in arms and men for a
dangerous move of inhabitants
All along the railroad cnlverte,
wherever of any eize, have been ntterly
destroyed, bnt the engineers hope to
make a detour in some cases and in
others will fill np the gaps.
Three or fonr spans of the Vet river
bridge have been ntterly destroyed, and
it will be necessary to make a tempo-
rary line down the river bed, ae at

BOERS IN RETREAT.
London, May 7—A dispatch dated at
Smaldeel. May 6tb, says:
“We crossed the Vet river this morn-
ing, and are now encamped at Small-
deel Junction. The enemy is in fall
retreat towards the Zand river and
Kroonstad. A turning movement was
made by the mounted Infantry jnst be-
fore dark yesterday It was a very
dashing affair. The Canadians, New
South Wales, New Zealand Rifles and
Queensland mounted infantry vied
with each other in a determination to
close with the enemy. Captain Anley
of the Essex regiment, commanding
the Third infantry battalion, behaved
in a very gallant manner. The naval
gnns and artillery made excellent prac-
tice, particularly the two inch gnns,
which were need for the first time with
“We captured a Maximaud twenty-
five prisoners. Oar casualties were only
fifteen wounded, one killed and three
“The British arrived here without
opposition. The Boers’ last train left
last Saturday night. The Boer losses
yesterday on the left flank were forty
killed. Their rear guard remains be-
hind the kopjes, ten miles distant.
There is much railway forage and corn
here. It is stated that the Boers are
retreating toward Kroonstaat. The
Zand river bridge, it is reported, has
been destroyed. ”
London, May 7—The war offioe has
reoeived the following dispatch from
Lord Roberts dated Smaldeel, May 7,
10:65 a. m.:
“General Hunter, after defeating the
enemy on May 4, joined hands with
Paget near Warrenton. The enemy
left thirteen killed and wounded on
-the ground, and we oaptnred seveial
prisoners. Oar losses were slight.
“Hunter speaks in high terms of the
gallantry of the Yeomany under Colo.
“The enemy have retired from the
front of Thaba N’Chn, and the exceed-
ingly strong position they held is now
ocoupied by Randles division.”
London, May 7—The annals of the
service will probably show nothing to
parallel the enthusiasm with whioh the
naval heroes of Ladysmith, whioh in-
clude the officers and crew of the Brit-
ish first-class cruiser Powerful, were
greeted in London today. The whole
ronte was a floating mass of color, and
the enthusiasm displayed was of the
most frantio description.
