Iimjon, Nov. 4. The war office bat
i'aoed the following announcement:
"The colonial oflice hat received In
formation to the effect that the BritUh
troopt have w ithdrawn from Colensoar.d
have concentrated further touth, but we
have no newt of any engagement In
that neighborboo I."
Tne evacuation of Colenro It un
doubtedly a mo"t "eriont matter for the
t'rltith in Natal, aa it not only teatiflet
to the complete inveatment of Ladytmith
by the Boer", hut maket the relief of
(irneral Sir (ieorge Stewart White an
extremely dillicult operation. Colento
it the point where the railway from
l.adyruiitli cro"ea lie Tugela river,
which It li tw In II xid.
The teriou'snefa of the evacuation,
however, liet in the (act that Command-aut-(ieneral
Joubert, while comoletely
inventing Sir (ieorgn White at Ladyamith
can teige thit Tugela bridge, and, if be
hat "ullicient trooa, can detach a force
and mnd it southward on Fietermaritz
burg, and, In any carte, by deatioying
the bridge and railway, can preveot any
relief expedition reaching Sir George
White for tome time.
Military men optimistically predict
that deneral Joubert will wilhdraw from
Natal immediately Sir Bed vera Buller't
force en ten the Orange Free 8iate, but
the later cannot be far on bit way, for
a lea-1 three or four weekt, and even
fien Cieneral Joubert may not decide to
intercept tho Britiah on the Free State'a
open veldt, which would tint the
Ilriliuh admirably, but be limy wait
until the last moment, and then proceed
by train back to Pretoria and take up
ttrong defentive potilione on the range
of hiila lying In front of Johantieabiirg
and Pretoria. Thus General Joubert
might remain in Natal aeveral weekt
lonuer endeavoring to force Sir George
White into capitulation, the dettruction
of the Tnge'a river bridge helping him
in cutting off Britirh relief.
Moreover, another -Bier force it re
ported to bave marched through Zulu
land in the direction of Ihirban and al
ready to have reached tho Natal frontier.
Tim", it will be teen the poaition in
Natal, taking Into consideration a
poatible n prising of the ditaffected Dutch,
it much disquieting, and, In fact, may
be described at critical. British rein
forcement! in any event cannot reach
Pin bin before the end of next week.

Such a Movement is Regarded as More
Daring Than Shermm'sjMarcb to
Losdqm, Nov. 6. The movement of
Boert in Cape Colony is beginning to
awaken British fears that they bave
greatly underestimated tho forces tbey
will have to meet, and thatjGeneral
Buller't tak it not to easy as antici
pated. It is becomicg appareot that all
British Cdlcultiti'jnsl'jised on the loyalty
of the population are hopelessly at tea,
or there hat been a very serious leakage
o(, Dutch sympathizers from Natal and
Otherwise there is no accounting for
the large forces of burghers reporteil
from all directions. The war office is
consequently being urged t3 bave more
troops in readiness for all poesible de
mands. Londjn, Nov. 6. An immense weight
was lifted from the pubiic mind by the
brief dispatch published this morning
by which the continental ttories of dis
aster at Ladysmtth were proved to be
false, although the dispaU-h itself re
vived anxiety of the timid in another
direction, as it indicated that General
White, Instead of sitting quietly and
acting only on the defensive, as it is
held in many quarters he ought to do,
persists in making sorties and risking
another Nicholsen'j Nek disaster.
Generally, however, the cheery tone
of the dispatch showing there is no
anxiety at Ladremith as regards the
ability of the beleagtued garrison to
bold its own, has had an excellent effect
on the country. From the fact that
White Is able to take the offensive and
shell the Boer camp, it seems I.adysimiu
is not so closely besieged as was sup
posed. Not much importance, however, is
attached to the shelling of the Boer
laager, as the war office b.is no confir
mation of the story that the Orange
Free Staters' camp at Bestera has been
captured. Were this true, it might have
considerable effect on the future atti
tude of the Orange Free State, w hich is
not so directly concerned in the conflict
as the Transvaal.
Tbeevacuation of Coleneoand reported
withdrawal of the British from Storm
burger is still unexplained. The former
may be due to either the B.ier artillery
rendering the place untenable or to the
fact that pressure elsewhere, possibly at
Piteriuaritzhurg, has necessitated con
centration at the threatened point of all
available troops. With regard to Storm-
berg, it is claimed that if it turns out to
be true that the place has been evacuated
it may either be due to impossibility at
present of providing an adequate garrison
to defend such important tuppliet against
Boer raids, or to a change in Butler's
plans, whereby General Menhulne's
division will be landed at Dunham to
relieve General White.
If the latter plan is decided on, the
nearest available ttoret are at Stormlierg
and the quickest method ol making the
necessary provision for advance will be
to railroad these stores to Etet London,
whence they would reach Durban before
the first tionpship.

; forces aggregating more than 30,000
j lighting men, Generals Lawton, Mc-
Artbur i d Wheaton tie now closing in
on Agulnaldo's army. General Otis
set November 5 and 0 as the dates for
commencing the campaign "all along;
the line," and the war department has
information today that th programme
Is being carried out. General Otis' dis
patches are optimistic in the highest
degree, and the r fficia's aro predictirg
