The Nile Expedition. ft .:> LORD WOLSELEY REQUIRES REINFORCEMENTS. SKIRMISHES WITH THE REBELS. I Vanity Fair to-day fHtys The Prince of Wales received, last Saturday, 3rd January, a telegram from Lord Wolseley: I shall be in Khartoum iu three weeks." The same journal states that the .Foreign Office received on Monday last a telegram from Lord Wolseley requesting that a picked force of 3,000 men should be sent at once to Suakim. Lord Wolseley also requested that another battalion should be sent to E.,yi, [REUTERS TEL_EGRAlI. j GAKDUL W EfcLS, J an. o.— The wells here are three in number, and are situate at the northerly end of a stoney basin, encircled by ranges of hills stretching far into the Bayuda desert. The en- trance to this basm is from the south. The Guards, the.Marines, and a few Engineers and Hussars, under the command of Col. the Honble E. Bos cawen, form the garrison at GakduL Major Dorwaid and a party of the Guards, under Capt. Crabb, have erected pumps and hose briuging the water from the upper reservoirs to the basin. The supply of drinkable water 's declared to be ample. There are about 600,000 gallons for the camels but the supply is exhaustable, being only collected rain water. Two Redoubts, planned by Maior Dorward, have been constructed, one of which erected by the marines, under Captain Goe, commands the entrance to 'he wells, aud the other constructed by the guards, overlook the wells themselves, as well as the stores of provisions. On Saturday Major Kitchener despatched a native guide and a female prisoner to treat for produce, with a party of natives whom the scout had seen apparently Waiting for water at some distance from the wells. The guide and prisoners took a camel and some money with them, and they returned in the evening without anything, and said that they had been badly treated by the nati ve3. In the aiternoon the scouts captured a convoy of merchandise on its way from Metammeh to Merawi. The convoy consisted of a number of camels and donkeys, accompanied by four natives, who stated that they left Metammeh on January 1st, when a detachment of General Gordon's troops was still at Shendy. They estimated the Mahdi's force at Metammeh at about two thousand men. 11 On Sunday, Major Kitchener, Colonels Sawle and Bonham, Captain Dawson, and two corporals of Hussars, while reconnoitering in the direction of the Abu HaIfa. Wells met a small party of natives with camels and asses laden with grain. These they captured, and while returning with them to the camp they sighted on their right a large convoy of about 70 camels, with 50 natives. Major Kitenener and his party at once galloped after them. On coming to close quarters with the natives, half the latter cut away the loads from their camels, and let them loose while the other half halted, and forming in front of the camels, showed fight. Major Kitchener's party observing this, galloped hard, shouting at the top of their voices. This scared both the camels and rebels, and scattered them, thus enabling the British to capture nine camels laden with grain and flour. As Major Kit- chener's party was small, and it was near sunset, they returned to the camp with their spoil. At midnight a stronger party went out, and brought back eight camel loads of dates, one camel, and some donkeys but they did not siglit any of the rebels. This captured convoy was bound for the Mahdi's camp.
