London, Jan. 2f>. ��� The follow-,  ing i.s the text of General Bullers  ���dispatch, dated Spearman's  Camp, Jan. 27. General Warren,  has driven back the enemy and  obtained possession of the southern crest of tlie high tablelands,  extending, from the lino of Acton  Holmes and Hougerpost to the  western Ladysmith hills, from  J.amuary 20 until January 2"> he  remained in close contact with  the enemy.  The enemy, .held a strong position on ranges of small kopjies  stretching northwest to southeast across the plateau from Ac-  ?.on Holmes through Spoin Koj  *o tlie left bank of the Tugela  river.  The actual position  held   was  (-perfectly   tenable,   but   did not  Send itself 10'an advance, as the  southern  slopes-were  mo steep  ��� i3iat Warren could not get uu effective artillery position, and the  water 'supply was difficult.  On January 2?> I assented to  .hisjattacking Spion Koj, a large  hill���indeed, a mountain���which  was evidently the key of the  position, but waS far more accessible from the north than the  .south. On the night of January  2'A he attacked Spion Koj, but  found it very difficult to hold, as  -its perimeter���the boundary���  was too large, and water which  he had been led to believe exist-  ed in this extra dry season, was  found to,be very deficient.  The crests were held all that  day against severe  attacks and  J jreary shell tire. Our,men fought  with great gallantry.  General Woodgate, who was  in command at' the summit  being wounded, the " officer  who    -succeeded    him    decided  'on    lhe    night, of   January   24  Lo abandon the position, and did  su bel'ore^dawn of January'25. '  New�� York,   Jan. -. 2T>: ���While  ��� 'little if aiiy- credence is to, be  placed in the alarmist dispatch  .from London, published by sensational papers inthis city, it is  noteworthy that all refer to-a  rumor   that ��� the   committee   of  ' jiabkmal defense which held a  iikoetiaig an London on Saturday  liacl decided to order General  White to surrender Ladysmith,  .e)r to make an effort  to  cut  his  that tinii'.had ���> any advantages.  I'or a.- !]����� JJoc!"-. nviM have felt  thorouyhlv dishe-'aru'ned a. tlieir  failure and 1 he tremendous loss  which they sustained. Unless  Ladysmith'i.s greatly in need of  relief, further movements on our  part are not expected for some  days.  The fact that Canada ha.-  answered so nobly to the call for  volunteers has more than pleased the people and great interest  is evinced in their doings.  The City of London volunteers  leave tomorrow and consequently are the heroes of the hour.  Nothing is too good for them, in  fact "Tommy Atkins" has made  rapid strides in tlie affection of  the masses, aud the appearance  of a warrior in khaki, and, leggings in the city, almost causes  a demonstration. He at any rate  must feel a,most important individual. Balfour's late speech on  the war has caused much disappointment, and is described as  jaunty, flippant aud frivolous,  and the most severe condemnations are from his own t most  staunch supporters; hardly ' a  paper supports il. But this will  not effect the position of the government so long as they take  ample and speedy measures' of  precaution against any contingency which may arise.    >  get inio what   seemed   1o   bo  an  ordinary -> ving hiinir in the center oi a good-sized room, and 1he  thing begin.-, to move.

It is a good illusion,'and when the  room was revolving rapidly there  never was a man who could keep  his head in the swing.  He seems  as if he must certainly pitch out,  and if the motion is kept   up  he  gets deathly sick.    But a pet cat  belonging to my friend   used ,to  lie on the edge of  the  seat  and  i  never turn a hair, no matter how  fast the thing was worked. The,  elder Herrnian told me that animals' were never deceived by  false' table legs, built up w:th  looking glasses and used in stage  tricks. They always passed'  around on the other side.

There is a lull in the excito-  ;inenLa,sit is felt that nothing  ���will be done until Roberts Kand  Kitchener have reviewed tho situation. The confidence of the  .entire nation is with them, and  jt is hoped and believed that  .their presence will turn  Lhe     -XiSe. Confidence      in  Buller has waned, as it is felt  ,l,hat both he and Methuen are to  .blame for attempting frontal at-  1 acics instead of flank movements  l>ut it is hard for us 1o judge, not  knowing the conditions and disadvantages under which thoy  jnay be working. It is also felt  /.hat wrong formations have been,  adopted, which have exposed  our inen to needless slaughter:  Ji owe ver the press is lenient in  vvith-holding judgment, until  the  ��n'd of the war.

PltOSPKC'J'OU:  Dear Sir:  y ��� Under   instruction   of   the  Hon.    Minister   of   Agriculture  another, distribution  of sample  packages of the best and   most  productive sorts of  cereals, &e'.,  is now being made from the Cen-  tral'Experimental Farm, Ottawa.  iThe distribution will  consist, as  heretofore,   of samples of oats,  barley,'field, pease,   Indian  corn  and potatoes.    Each sample, will  weigh three pounds.'   The. quality of  the seed  will  be. of the  best, the varieties true  to  name  and   the  packages  will  be sent  free to applicants,   through   the  mail.    The object in view is  the  improvement 'Of   the   character  and  quality  of  the'grain,   etc.,  grown in Canada, an effort widely appreciated, and the choice of  varieties to be sent  out  will   be  confined   to  those   which   have  been found  to succeed well at  the Experimental Farms.  , Thcseo samples   will   be   sent  only to those who apply personally, lists of names from societies  or  individuals   cannot   be   considered.   Only one sample of one  sort can bo sent  to  each  aj^pli-  cant. hence if  an  individual  receives  a  sample of oats he cannot also receive one of wheat   or  barley.    Applications should  be  addressed to the Director of Ex-  perimental Farms,, Ottawa,   and  may be sent any time before  the  loth of March, after which   date  the lists w.ill be  closed,   so  that  the samples asked I'or may all be  sent out iu good time for sowing.  Parties writing will please  men-  lion the sort of grain they would  prefer and should  the available  stock  of  the   variety  named be  exhausted, some other good sort  will be sent iu its place.   Letters  may be sent to the Experimental  Farm free of postage.  Wm. SAUNDERS.  Director Experimental Farms.  Ottawa. January 22nd. HKld.  The Strathcona Horse.  Canada is profoundly impressing the British public. ��The  Times says: "How immense is  the .reserve strength on which  England in a just cause can  draw, is strikingly revealed in  Lord Strathcona's munificent  offer. ., It comes from one who is  at once a Canadian citizen-and a  British peer." It adds: ,'"There  are not many countries in the  world where individual citizens  are found able to prove their  patriotism on so splendid a scale:  Such an offering to the common  cause of the Empire would, have  been welcomer-from,any quarter,  but it is doubly welcome from  the representative of'the 'greatest self-governing colony."  ���  "  Nobility to the Front.  i , >  Among the prominent Englishmen who have recently* volunteered for service in the war  against the Boers,'ar,e the Duke  of Marlborough,, who will fur-  nish one hundred and fifty men  and horses: the Earl of War-  wick, a rich ,peeiv. who owns  Warwick Castle und other famous residences: the Earl of Dudley, whose great fortune consists in part of coal' and iron  mines: the" Earl of Lonsdale, who  possesses nearly seventy thousand acres of valuable land,, and  i.s an intimate friend of the German emperor: and England's  premier duke, the Duke of Norfolk-, who is postmaster-general  and by no means a young man  (he was,bornMii 1847). The Duke  of Norfolk's .position in the cabinet, and his tremendous business, to say nothing of his power as lay head of the Catholic  church in England, will probably prevent the acceptance of  his offer.  i Aft or ;i < 'olel Orivo u tcj.t.-pootiful (if  l'liin-lvilleii" mixed with u a his- of hot  wilier and .-uj;:ir will bo founil a better  sM'niiihiiit lliiin whiskey.

There   is.  however,    an    opportunity    for  those whose duties prevent them  from going to the   front  lo  join  the  home guard,   or    in    other  weji'ds to become soldiers, of   tho  Queen, with only a remote possibility 'of being called em  for ae-  I ive service.

Inquiry  revealed the fact flint the slcat-  i 11 ��i' across lhe river was excellent, and inslead of attending  divine service they were culling  ligures on the smooth ice.
