The ‘Daily Telegraph's’ Petrogvad correspondent states that the battle of Koluszki is the crowning victory in the Polish campaign. While the main German army was hnr.rying down from Thorn to Block a strong force was thrown against Kohiszki (which is the junction of three railways), east of Lodz. The Germans knew that the main Russian force was attacking C'/.en-.toehowa, and believed that it would be impossible for the Russians to face about before Warsaw should fall. But the success with which the Germans had torn up the bridges and railways blocked their own game, and made the Russian advance upon Czenstoeliowa so difficult that her reserves were still in the vicinity of Lodz when news came of the threatened attack upon Warsaw. The Russian wing made a half-turn, and battled its way towards the German rear,' driving the Germans for 50 miles in a single day, until finally it enveloped the right flank of the Germans in the Lodz district. Meanwhile the Russians broke the German centre north of Lodz, severing the right flank from the main body, which is now striving to hew its way northwards, but its chances of escape are slight. The German reserve army at Wielnn was set in motion too late, and the Russians were able to check its advance. Captured cannon and prisoners are already pouring into Warsaw. The latter include Prussian Guardsmen. Though they have received their winter clothing, many are maimed and disabled by frostbite. [Wielun is far south in Poland, slightly to the north of a line joining Breslau and Czenstochowa.] AUSTRIANS IN SERVIA. ANOTHER BATTLE RAGING. NISH, November 26. A pitched battle, in which half a million men are engaged, is being fought at Lazarevatz. The Austrians are using five army corps, hoping to overwhelm the Servians by weight of numbers and metal.
