the fact of the Boers being clad in khaki en-

Mistaking the charge on the kopje made
by Captain Scott for a charge of Colonel
Rimington's column the Boers abandoned the
guns and fled.
It is believed that the losses of the Boers
equalled those of the British.
[In this engagement the advance guard of Major
Damant's force, which had reached Tafelkop, while
galloping to intercept Boers who were crossing the
river at Maggiesdeel, mistook 800 of the enemy under
Commandant M. Botha for a battalion of Yeomanry,
since they were formed in squadrons and were appar-
ently firing volleys. The enemy allowed the advance
guard to approach close, but Captain Scott's squad-
ron detected the deception and fired on the Boers,
eight of whom dropped. The rest of the enemy with
great daring rushed a kopje commanding the main
body and the guns. Major Damant, with one troop,
tried to gain the crest first, but failed to achieve his
object. Then, taking shelter below the crest, the
troop fought till all were killed or wounded except
four. Captain Scott collected his men, charged the
kopje with great gallantry, and captured it. The
enemy were in possession of the hill for only a short
time. Afterwards Colonel Rimington came up, and
pursued the retreating Boers. The British losses
were 32 men killed and 38 wounded.]

INDUSTRY ON THE MOUNTAINS.
LITHGOW, Friday.
Very little was done in the local industries this
week owing to the holidays and the repairs which
usually take place at the end of the year. The coal
trade is about the same. Ironworks laid off for the
holidays on Saturday last. About 30 men are now
employed carrying out repairs to the machinery.
The big sheet mill is being overhauled. An engine
is to be shifted. Two vertical boilers will be taken
down, and various furnaces are to be repaired. With
all this work to do it is not probable that a start will
be made before the first Monday in the new year.
The copper refining works laid off on Tuesday for
the holidays. It is not known how long the furnaces
will be idle, as this is dependent on the time taken in
cleaning out the flues. It is expected, however, that
a week will elapse from the closing down before
operations are recommenced.

The district of Kilmore was also the scene of dis-
astrous bushfires, which were fanned into renewed life
on Saturday by the strong northerly wind, which,
blowing at times at the rate of from 60 to 70 miles
an hour, drove the flames along through the country
at an alarming rate. Hundreds of workers found it
almost impossible in many cases to make the slightest
attempt to cope with the fiery element. The
fire at Goldenvein, Moranding, which had
swept some thousands of acres on the previous
day, obtained renewed life, and crops, stacks, barns,
and outhouses were swept away in a very little time,
while many narrow escapes of life were reported.
Further eastward immense destruction was caused
by the fire which broke out on Strathmore Estate.
Over 4000 acres of Strathmore have been swept bare
of every vestige of grass. The woolshed, sheepyards,
stables, &c., were all burnt, but the homestead, for-
tunately, was saved. The fire is still burning in
some of the scrubby portions of the estate.
At Mr. William Taylor's WestfieId Estate on Fri-
day the fire burnt a part of his property, but Satur-
day's hurricane blew the flames through the grass
and stubble in a sheet of flame. The homestead,
barns, and stables, with farming implements, were
totally destroyed, as well as a considerable amount of
stock, including some stud rams and miles of
fencing. Several other properties were also de-
vastated.
To-day the fire is raging towards Glenarona, and
at Torn Gully immense volumes of smoke are rising.
Very few of the farmers had their crops insured,
consequently they will be heavy losers. For many
sight, nothing but blackened and charred ground,
ruins of stacks, buildings, and fences remaining.
In the churches to-day prayers were offered up for
rain and for the unfortunate victims of the disastrous
fires.
The damage done amounts to many thousands of
pounds.

A considerable staff of persons was employed in
gathering and writing out the news. The office of
editor and publisher seems to have been undertaken
by the librarii, who employed sub-editors or actuarii,
while the reporters were called notarii.
The wealthier families kept slaves for the purpose
of copying the Acta Diurna, but a considerable number
of scriveners made a living by copying them for the
use of the Romans and for people in the provinces.
Sometimes society news was included, as, for in-

The Weather.—A hot nor'-wester came across
the State yesterday, sending temperatures up to
well over 100°. In Sydney 98° was recorded,
which is the highest by 4° during the present
season. The change from the nor'-wester, with
its moist atmosphere, was appreciated when the
wet bulb fell to 35, a very low reading for
Sydney. To-day Mr. Russell expects thunder-
storms on the coast.
A Great Shipping Company.—The Peninsular
and Oriental Company's recently issued list of de-
partures and arrivals showed that 23 of their
steamers were to leave London between the 11th
ultimo and December 20. On the other hand 26
of their steamers were timed to arrive between the
17th ultimo and December 29.
A New Lighthouse at Byron Bay.—The Pre-
mier, accompanied by the Attorney-General, the
Minister for Education, and about 25 members of
Parliament intends leaving early on Friday
morning in the steam yacht Victoria for the
Tweed with the view of opening the lighthouse at
Cape Byron, which is the most easterly point on
our coast. The party expect to arrive about
4 o'clock on Saturday afternoon, when an
inspection will be made of the lighthouse,
and in addition a visit will be paid to the local
creamery, whilst a banquet will be held in the
evening. The party will Ieave Byron Bay early
on Sunday morning, with a view of returning to
Sydney on Monday. It may be stated that
the light is a white one of the first order of
dioptrics, and will show two flashes every 20
seconds. The tower is of concrete, and is 49ft. in
height and circular in formation. The light will
be 371ft. above sea level, and will be visible at a
distance of 25 miles. Besides the main light,
there will be a fixed light of the fourth order,

The Business of the Session.—The Premier in-
formed a " Herald " reporter last night that he
intended to bring the session to a close shortly
before Christmas. Mr. See is well pleased with
the work which was done both by the Council and
the Assembly last week. There remained very
few bills of importance which it is imperative to
pass at once. The Rabbit Bill and the Friendly
Societies Bill will speedily be disposed of, as will
also the Blockholders Bill, the amendments by
the Legislative Council in the latter measure being
accepted. The Municipal Bill will go over to
next session, when it will probably be the first
measure to be dealt with. Mr. See regards it as
being a most important bill, and one upon which
there is bound to be a great deal of discussion,
curtail. The measure has been considered by the
different municipal councils throughout the State,
and various suggestions have been made which
have since been incorporated in the bill. Re-
garding the report on the Moore-street resump-
tions the Government look upon the matter as
being very important. The recommendations of
Judge Murray will be incorporated in a bill, and
an endeavour will be made to pass it into law
during the present session.
Parliamentary Trip to Berry.—The Minister for
Works (Mr. O'Sullivan), the Minister for Agri-
culture (Mr. Kidd), and probably the Premier
will, as previously announced in the " Herald,"
leave for Berry this morning. The party will
return to Sydney on Monday.

REMOVAL OF THE ABATTOIRS.
The Public Works Committee met yesterday, when
the expediency of removing the public abattoirs from
Glebe Island and re-erecting the same on a more
suitable site was further considered. The Mayor of
Burwood (Mr. W. G. Crane) and the Mayor of
Drummoyne (Mr. T. Henley) attended as repre-
sentatives appointed at a public meeting held at Bur-
wood a few nights ago, to represent to the com-
mittee a series of evils which were suffered by the
suburban residents from the cattle-driving nuisance.
With regard to the question of a site for the abattoirs
the Mayor of Burwood expressed himself as being in
favour of that at Homebush Bay, whilst the Mayor
of Drummoyne thought that anywhere on the Parra-
matta River would be suitable. At Glebe Island, he
said, the place was a great nuisance, was injurious to
the residents, the cause of serious depreciation in the
value of property, and an interference with settle-
ment in the district through which the cattle were
driven. Mr. R. Bunton, of North Botany, was also
examined. He expressed himself as being favour-
able to the abattoirs remaining at Glebe Island, and
in view of the noxious trades being located at Botany
he thought that better facilities than now existed for
the conveyance of the bye-products from the abat-
toirs to those trades could be provided by extending
Shea's Creek canal from its present terminus to
Blackwattle Bay.
The committee adjourned until the following day.
