fnK telegrams recently received from I the seat of war, inform us that Sir Garnet Wolsley is pursuing a stead \ course towards completely subju^at- I ing- the enemy, at the same time bein»- i splicitous to do so^as much by .masterly ; generalship I as by exercising* the ifjg-hting-'-qudirios of the "uHant troops under his command. He has; cap- ' tured 1 Pkmeafah alnd Nag-faer, after a s'eriGS of brillfoht'skirmishes, although ' the ..enemy'^eve.in. the pr|pjo;rtiau dii fljve'to'one in numbers. nis troops.
