IS A DEFEAT.

London, Jan. 4. (Thursday, 4:30 a.
m.) Thero is a complete absence of
anything new from the seat of war. Tho
report of a Boer attack upon Molteno is
not yet confirmed. Apparently General
French holds uothing within flveinihs
ot Colesburg Junction. His request fir
rolnforccments dispels any present hopo
that ho will be able to seize ono of tho
crossings' of tho Orange river. It is
probable that, when Lord Roberta nr
rives, General French will be ordered to
quit his present unsupported position,
and to concontrate his command at
DeAar or Orange river. As a Daily
Telegraph says: "General French
seems to bo in tho position of tho man
having tho tiger cat in a trap, and un
able to kill It for want of a stick."
A dispatch from Dover announces
that Lieutenant Colonel Pitcher has re
turned there safely from Douglas.
Since Commandant General Joubcrt's
roturn to the front, tho cannonading of
Ladysmith by the Boers has been much
livelior. Between December 18th and
December 3(Uh, four shells killed ono
officer and fourteen men and wounded
thirteen ofllcers and eleven men. Tho
warofllco acknowledges the inferiority
of tho regular artillery, by authorizing
tho equipment of a now battcry,attachcd
to tho London volunteer's corps with
Vickers and Maxims, and same as tho
Boers need, and by ordering 100 of these
12JiJ pounder quick-firers built immed
iately. The ofllcers and men of tho new
battery will ho supplied from the Hon
orable Artillery company.
Eight additional militia regiments
have been called out. Seven of thcM)
will serve in Ireland, replacing tho reg
ulars soul to South Africa. Among the
announcements of those who volunteered
yesterday are the names ofa hundred or
more of tho sous of gentlemen.

New York, Jan. 4. Railroads belong
ing to the Eastern trunk lino pool have
put In active operation tho new freight
tariffs involving an advance of 20 to 25
percent in rates. Merchants of this
city, not discouraged by tho refusal of
Attorney-General Griggs to Institute In
junction proceedings to prevent tho In
troduction of the now rates, are deter
mined to continue their opposition.
They will first apply to tho railroads
themselves mid try to get a hearing by
tho classification committee which drew
up tho higher rates. They projioso to
show that tho rates will not only bo a
serious discrimination against small
shippers, bIiico tho advance on less than
carload lots Is greater than on carload
lots, but the now tariff Is likely to drive
away business from this port. Some of
the trunk lines ha vo received complaints
from business men in the interior to the
effect that If tho now rates stand they
will bo compelled to ship by Baltimore,
Charleston, Newport News, New Orleans
and other Southern ports, since tho
narrow margin on which thoy do busi
ness will not admit of any profit what
ever under the now tariff. "
If no other plan works, it is under
stood that tho shippers will take steps
against tho railroads on tho ground that
tho now agreement concerning rates is
made by an iron-clad pool, which is in
