NO SURPRISE THIS TIME. I ——— German Flotilla Hammered. I Dutch Reports of thavy Losses. i PFESS BUREAU, Tuesday. The Secretary of the Admiralty an- nounces:— Last night whilst our light forces were patrolling in ths North Sea qtot far from the Dutch Coast they met a division of enemy torpeoo-boat de- stroyer?. A short engagement took place, during which one of the enemy torpedo- boat destroyers was sunk. The rest scattered, having suffered considerable punishment. Darkness prevented the full results of the action from being observed. Durwig this night there was also a: short and sharp engagement between enemy torpedo-boat destroyers and our own destroyers in the vicinity of the Schouwen Bank. During this engagement one of our torpedo-boat destroyers was struck by a torpedo, the explosion killing three officers and 44 men of the crew. She was subsequently sunk by cur own ships. The relatives have been in- formed. Our ships suffered no other casualties. (Note.-The Schouwen Bank is off the mouth of the East Scheldt.) SLIGHT LOSSES." USUAL PERVERTED GERMAN REPORT.

Wednesday says — In the course of enterprises by our de- stroyer forces engagements tcok place yes- terday morning near Hoffden with British light naval forces, in the course of which an enemy destroyer was sunk, and a second was observed by one of our aeroplanes to be in a sinking condition. One of our torpedo buab which was in distress owiQg to damage sustained is re- ported to have run into the Dutch har-bour of Ymuiden. The other boats returned with slight losses. RAID OR ATTEMPT TO ESCAPE ? The" Tyd," of Amsterdam, says it is obvious that the German fleet content- plated a raid, but was detected, and hurled back. Part of the German forces were driven against the Flemish coast, several destroyers being seriouply damaged, and several warships sunk. j SEVEN SUNK ? (1 ress Association War Special.)

ANOTHER dutch rumo* r. I AMSTERDAM, Tuesday. I The Xieuws van den Dag" learns from Ymuiden that, accord; to the statements of Germans, a, flotilla of twelve destroyers left Zeebrugge about midnight, going in a northerly direction. At 4 a-tn. thev were surrounded hv n j strong British squadron composed of ten cruisers and a number of destroyers.

I FROZEN TO THE, DECK.! $ £ KILLED GERMANI 1 ? ?/ SAILORS. I > The "Times" coi-respoiideiit at Ymuiden eaysr When the German torpedo-boat arrived the eight ipembers of the crew who had been killed were frozen hard to the deck, and it was necessary to employ axes in order to detach the dead bodies, which were covered with a German flag. The damage was caused partly by gunfire and partly apparently by ramming by a BrAigh warship, which made a deep inden- tation in the German torpedo-boat's side. I noticed the German flag still fluttering over the damaged vessel, which presented everywhere the appearance of having been badly mauled. The crew were greatlv re- duced by casualties. Groups of men were Still aboard, looking from the deck to the quay. Despite many degrees of frost, one or two German sailors, stripped to the waist, were washing off the battle stains in t,h, open air. One man's arm which had been blown off hung in the rigging, frozen hard.
