LONDON, Nov. 2.-The brevity of
news from Ladysmlth since Tuesday
night has not relieved the anxiety pre
vailing regarding the position of the
British army In Lodysmith. The war
office has no Information of General
BuUcr's having left Cape Town.
Colenzo, In the rear of White's force,

composite naval and military corps, and
It Is understood two naval 12-pounders
mounted near' the bridge over Tugela,
one of the most vulnerable points alongl
the railroad ought to be able to defend)
It and prevent Its destruction. i
If the Boers succeed In destroying,
this bridge, it would mean Interruption
of railroad communication with Lady-1
smith for nn Indefinite period. While,
the Boer attempts in this direction are;
not confirmed, It is claimed they may;
be expected momentarily, and the re-
ported steady shelling of Ladysmlth, it
