Jbe Japanese legation have re ceived the following ctlicial dispatch from Tokio: Kin-Chou and all the heights in Its vicinity have been taken and our truops are pushing the Russians towards Port Arthur."

"Three Japanese warships in Kin Chou nay co-opera tea, firing with heavy guns on tlie Russian positions.
