Fourth Attack on Fort Arthur.
The fourth attack of the Japanese
upon Port Arthur is des P
cribed in the following special ^
from Tokio, March 13th. Ofli c<
cial and private reports indicate 11
that Admiral Togo's fourth at- g
tack on Port Arthur on the 10th r<
instant was tho most effective S1
since the first assault of a mouth

destroyer was sunk and several
Russian torpedo boat destroyers
seriously damaged. The forti ;l
float ions and city were subject 51
ed to a heavy bombardment r<
? lasting nearly four hours. The 11
naval bombardments of the land 11
. works Jiave generally been in '1
effective, yet the peculiar topo- c'
graphical conditions of Port
Arthur make immunity from a'
serious loss from bombardment ^
almost impossible. Admiral
Togo's torpedo flotilla opened P
the action by boldly steaming '(
in under tho batteries and sue- P
cessfully placing a number of ^
mechanical mines at the mouth ^

The departure of the general
was marked by a demonstration
of patriotism and personal regard
such as seldom have been witnessed
in the Russian capital.
The thousands of persons who
lined the Nevsky prospect and
the approaches to the Nicholas
railroad station, vied with the
highest persons in the empire
giving vent to expressions of confidence
in the new commander
who is to lead the emperor's armies
Modestly and without the ac
companiment of music or escort
the general drove to the station
in an open carriage. Ilis passage
down the broad boulevard was
followed by a storm of cheers
which grew louder as the crowd

Here the enthusiasm broke out
into mighty shouts.
