A tabulated summary of losses of British merchant ships and fishing vessels through hostile action from the beginning of the war to March 10 is issued by the Admiralty. Soissons Cathedral and Ypres again bombarded. Belgians progress in the Dixmude district. Enemy suffer “colossal” losses in Carpathians, and it is now clear that the vigorous offensive begun by the Germans early last week on the Russian northern front has met with different results from their last great thrust eastwards from the Prussian frontier. They have failed to take Przasnysz, and though fighting on a large scale is going on between that town and the Niemen, no appreciable progress is made.
