A cumber of our exchanges
this week contain an article from
the pen of Gen. Bradley Johnston,
based on the battle of Winches

is interestingly written, some

light on some experiences not so

England and the Transvaal
have boon at dagger's points for
! some weeks. War is not yet de-
clared and. as there is hope
against death as lone: as there
i is life, so there is hope yet that
j carnage may bo averted. The
Boers have much to fear in a
war with England and that great,
proud nation cannot afford toj
strike so small a nation and so
weak and brave a foe till war is
the hist alternative by which to
settle matters on which human
differences cannot harmonize.
