THE ARUM OR CUCKOO PINT,
(" Familiar Wild Flowers, Part 4, by F. Edward
Hulme, F.L.S., F.S.A.,)
In course of publication by Cassells.
fThe spathe, the large hood-like part of the
bloom, is often nine or ten inches long, tapering to
a point at its upper extremity opening out lower
down so as to show the club-like form within, and
then contracting again. The central form or spa-
dix is very curious in construction and quaint in
forin, and will well repay attentive investigation.
On stripping off the outer envelope it will be seen
that the clublike form is but the termination of a
very unusual form of inflorescence. At the base of
this central succulent axis we find a ring of fertile
pistilleferous flowers, and above these another ring,
some two-or three rows, of aborted or rudimentary
orFans of like nature. Surmounting these, after a
brief intervening space, we find a group or cluster
of well developed stameniferous forms, and above
these, as in the case of the female flowers, another
ring or cluster composed of stamens in a rudimen.
taryl.and imperfect state. It will ordinar-
ily be found in blossom by about the middle of
April and may be met with until almost the end of
',May. The autumnal aspect of the plant is very
different. We look in vain for any signs of blos-
som, in vain even for its foliage; these have all
withered and passed away, and in their place we
see a little green stem, some three or four inches high
surmounted by a cluster of large succulent looking
berries of a brilliant scarlet colour, a dozen or more
of them, each as large as a ripe black currant, and
forming a far more conspicuous object in the midst
of the fast thinning hedgerow, than the blossoms
afforded months beforehand, when everything was
bursting into verdure and life. The leaves are on
long foot stalks that spring directly from the root:
they form an excellent illustration of what is in
botanical nomenclature called the sagittate form
of leaf, a term derived from the resemblance of the
form to that of the head of an arrow. .
The generic name signifying fire in an.
oient Hebrew and Egyptian, and refers to the fiery
or acrid taste of the plants comprising the genus-
a genus which in England contains only the species
under consideration." .
Dr. Thomson, with Dr. Chaplin, English Phy.
sician at Jerusalem, having the most extensive and
most intimate knowledge of Palestine, in "The
Land and the Book," page 256, Nelson's last Edi.
tion, remarks :--
This little brook we are crossing comes from
Ijon, by Abel. It is associated in my experience
with the beautiful Huleh lily, the flower, as I be.
lieve mentioned by Our Lord in that delightful ex-
hortation to trust in the kind care of Our Heavenly
Father. Consider the lilies how they grow ; they
toil not, they spin n6t,and yet I say unto you that
Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one
of these." This Huleh lily is very large, and the
hree inner petals meet above, and form a gorgeous
canopy, such as art never approached, and king
never set under, even in his utmost glory. And
when I met this incomparable flower, in all its love-
ness, among the oak woods around the .Northern
base of Tabor, and on the hills of Nazareth, where
Our Lord spent his youth, I felt assured that it
was to this he referred. We call it Hileh lily be-
cause it was here that it was first discovered. Its
'botanical name, if it has one, I am unacquainted
with, and am not anxious to have any other than
.that which connects it with this neighbourhood. I
suppose, also, that it is this identical flower to which
Solomon refers in the Song of Songs; "I am the
rose of Sharon and the lily of the valleys. As the
lily among the thorns, so is my love among the
daughters." The bride, comparing her beloved to
& rpe pr.a -young hart sees him, feeding among the
lilies. Our flower delights most in the allies, but
is also found on the mountains. It grows among
thorns, and I have sadly lacerated my hands in ex-
tricating it from them. Nothing can be in higher
contrast than the luxuriant, velvety softness of this
lily, aid the crabbed tangled hedge of thorns about
it. Gazelles still delight to feed among them, and
you dan scarcely ride through the woods North of
Tabor, where these lilies abound, without frighten-
ig them from their flowery pasture!."
Canon Farrar remarks in a note, p. 200, Illus.
trated edition, "The Life of Christ."
"'The lilies to which Christ alluded (Matt. VII
28). are either flowers generally, or, perhaps, the
s'carlet anemone, or the Huleh lily-a beautiful
flower which is found wild in this neighbourhood."
Dean Stanley's "Sinai and Palestine" p. 422.
"The otly lilies which I saw in Palestine in the
months of March and April, were large yellow wa-
ter lilies, in the clear spring of Ani Mellaheh, near
the Lake of Merom. But if, as is probable, the
name may include the numerous flowers of the tu-
lip or amaryllis kind, which appear in the early
summer or the autumn of Palestine, the expression
becomes more natural,-the red and golden hue
more fitly suggesting the comparison with the pro-
(verbial gorgeousness of the robes of Solomon. And
though there may not be any special appropriate-
ness to Galilee, the brilliant flowers of Palestine are
one of the most attractive features of its scenery,
the more so frpm the want of colour or form in the
general landscape."

NOTICE.

THE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE desires to
give notice that a supply of TOBACCO
SEED of the finest kinds procurable in Cuba
has just been received,from Havanah, and will
be distributed to all persons desirous of culti-
vating Tobacco in this Colony.
The Board trusts that as many persons as
possible may try the experiment of Tobacco
cultivation, as fine Tobacco such as is likely to
be produced from the seed now procured, sells
at a very high price, and its cultivation if it
succeeded would prove highly remunerative.
The experiment need not be tried on alargescale
in any one spot. Every one who can spare a
few roods of Land might make a sufficient
trial.
Packets of Seed may be had on application at
the PUBLIC LIBRARY, HAMILTON, at the AssIs-
TANT RECEIVER GENERAL'S OFFICE, ST. GEOR-
GES, at R. TYNES, DEVONSHIRE, and at the OF-
FICE OF THE ROYAL GAZETTE," HAMILTON,
It is hoped that early application will be made
for this seed, as the sowings must be made di-
ring the present or next month if it is desired tf
secure a crop during the present year.
Feby. 9th, 1879.

LADIES' NOMINATION RIFLE MATCH.

This interesting Match, which we announced in
our last issue to take place on Wednesday, the 19th
was (owing to the unpropitious state of the weather.)
put off, according to the Rules of the Match, to the
following day, when, it took place on the Warwick
Range, with a success, which was hardly to be ex-
pected, and which must have been very gratifying
to those interested in its management. At the hour
fixed for its commencement 31 competitors out pf
the 34 entered, answered to their names-three fionl
unavoidable circumstances being prevented attend-
ing. His Excellency and Lady Laffan arrived
early and appeared, to take the deepest interest
throughout,the entire Match. Amongst the large
number of spectators we notice Colonel and Mrs.
Morrison, Colonel and Mrs. Gordon, Capt. Muiorlbv,
'R. N., Colonel Vigors, Doctor, Mrs. and Miss Sin-
clair, Colonel Lilly, Commissary Randall, and Mrs.
Randall, Mrs. and the MIisses Butterfield, Mr. and
Mrs. Richard and Miss Darrell, Maj. Hereford, Miss
Bremner, Capt. Greeve and most 'of the elite ofI the
Island. Subjoined are the names of the winners with
their scores; the shooting was not quite up to what
was expected, owing to a strong northerly wind,
and perhaps we may add, to a feeling of nervous-
ness amnongst the Sons of Mars from the number of
the representatives of the fair goddesses present for
whom they were doing battle.

Lady Laffan kindly distributed the prizes to the
different winners. .
We hear that more competitions will take place
on a larger scale, and we feel sure, from the sue.
cess of this one, that they will be well supported.

We understand that tw Co rporals, belonging to
ed Cummings and Thomas-are to compete in a
foot race near Prospect on Satnrday next at 5 p.m.
As one of the competitors is a professional, but un-
der on assumed name, great interest is being felt in
the result, and the betting is running high.

ORANGE Tbers.-We are much gratified to learn
that efforts are being made to renew our stock of
Orange Trees, which have unfortunately for years
past been diminishing rapidly in number and even
in quality. Mr. Arthur'Thompson was almost the
first to try budded orange trees, 40 of which he
obtained via New York from Florida; four of them
he presented to two of his friends, and planted the
remainder at his newly .iur:--h:.- ed property near
Waterloo, Westward of the Town of Hamilton, in
January last; all of which are now looking healthy,
having taken root immediately on being placed in
'the earth. Other persons, observing the success
which has so far nitt-. rn. 1 1Mr. Thompson's experi-
ment, have also given it their attention, and a con-
siderable number of, budded. -orange trees were
brought down by the last Canima. Mr. T. has also
imported some Sicily lemon and mandarine orange
trees. ...

Arrival of the Englisl1 Mail of the
6th March.
The Royal Mail Steamer Beta, Captain Shaw,
with the English Mail of the 6th instant, arrived at
St. Georges on Friday last. She did not leave
Halifax till 10 a.m. of the 18th, having been de-
tained till that time by the non-arrival of the At.
lantic mail steamer Caspian. The Beta, from Sam-
Pro, to the Gulf Stream, encountered a snow storm.
'ter entering the stream the weather became fine,
and so o nued till ber arrival here. She ran
the distance in 7' hoUrs, The Beta left on Satur-
day last for St. Thomas.
We are under obligpp' \o Capt. Armstrong,
passsenger by the Pta, for a Halifax paper of the
18th inst,
It will be noticed by our extracts to-day that the
story relative to the second defeat of the British
Troops by the Zulus is pronounced to be false.
.**
From the Latest Telegrams.
THE ZULU WAR.
CAPE TOWN, Feb. 25.-Reinforcements are anx-
iously awaited. There are symptoms of native
hostility in all directions. The powerful tribes of
Rasutors are showing a rebellious spirit. Volun-
teers and available troops have been set to overawe
them. Leidenburg is hourly expecting an attack
by the Secoceni. Pinto, the Portuguese explorer,
was obliged to fight his way through the native
tribes.
LONDON, March 15.-Iln the House of Commons
last night Mr. Edgerton, Secretary to ibe Admi.
ralty, announced that a number of transports had
left Madeira for the Cape. An exciting scene oc-
curred in consequence of Sir Stafford Northcote
stating that the Government did not intend to re-
move Lord Chelmsford. Mr. Jenkins, despite the
repeated intervention of the Speaker, attacked Lord
Chelmsford, declaring that his advancement was
due to occult influences.
LONDON, March 17.-The story published on the
10th inst., that Colonel Pearson was attacked at
Ekowe by a large force of Zulus and defeated, with
enormous loss, was false. It was probably circu-
lated by the Zulus in order to delay the assistance
to Ekowe. The Orange Free State Government re-
fused to aid, or permit its citizens to aid, the Brit-
ish against the Zulus, on constitutional grounds.

AFGHANISTAN.
LAHORE, March 17.-The Viceroy has arrived
here. High authorities here say the natives of In-
dia will not believe in British success unless the
troops advance on Cabul. General Browne's di-
vision is concentrating at Jellalabad, to be in read-
iness to advance if necessary. It is asserted that
the manner of Yakoob Khan, even when communi-
cating with Major Cavagnarni was almost (?).
D)(finite terms have been sent to Yakoob, who has
not yet had time to reply.
TASFKEND, March 16.-Abderrahmann, of Cabul
son cf Afzul Khan, and nephew of Shere Ali, who
has been a Russian pensioner and President at Sa-
mark for the past eight years, arrived here last
evening to bold a conference with General Kauff-
mann. This is important, as Abderrahmann is be-
lieved to be an aspirant to the Ameership now held
by Yakoob Khan.
INDIA.-LAHORE, March 16.-Sufficient rain has
fallen throughout the province to insure the safety
of the spring harvest, thereby entirely altering the
financial ard political aspects of the country, and
affecting ever the military by facilitating the sup-
ply of grain and forage.
BURMAH.-CALCUTTA, March 17.-The chief Com-
missioner for British Burmah has now a sufficient
force to protect British territory, but the position
of the President and other Europeans at Mandalay
is critical. The best hope for their safety rests on
the belief that the King and his advisers are not so
tterly lost to all sense of prudence as to precipi-
tate their own downfall by rushing into hostili-
ties,

In the House of Commons on Friday night, March
14, Sir Stafford Northcote, in replying to inquiry
why troops were sent to British Burmab, received
the following telegram from Lord Lytton, Viceroy
to India, dated March 8: The British garrison has
been reinforced on the urgent recommendation of

Governor of Edan. The British resident at Man-
dalay has reported warlike preparations making;
that Burmese were strengthening river forts.
There are rumors of disturbances and dangers
threatening fkreigrers. Warning comes from well-
informed quarters that early mischief is intended,
and altogether the position of affairs is precarious.
The garrison in Burmah is on a peace footing and
too weak for protection in the event of a disturb.
ance on the frontier. News of reinforcements will
support our residents at Mandalay.
LONDON. March 14.-Much excitement prevails
at Limasol, in the island of Cyprus. All shops are
closed and traffic suspended in consequence of Sir
Garnet Wolseley's monetary regulations. The in-
habitanlts have telegraphed to the Queen, appealing
against Sir Garnet Wolseley's decree.
A London correspondent of the Edinburgh Scots-
man says Mr. Gladstone was not invited to the
Duke of Connaught's wedding. This omission ex-
cited much comment in political circles, as Lords
Granville and Hartington both received invitations.


Broadhead, the notorious Trades Union leader,
of Sheffield, is dead.

SZEGEDIN.-HUNGARY.
LONDON, March 15.---A correspondent at Szege.
din telegraphs that on Thursday thousands of peo-
ple were starving.
A correspondent in one of the relief boats states,
4000 persons had taken refuge in a church. The
boat was unable to afford any help. Hardly any
serviceable boats available. On a school house
1500 persons had taken refuge and were without
food. Large numbers of boats which were proceed-
ing to aid the submerged city had been stopped by
the storm, which bad cut off communication by the
river. T. e authorities at Szentes, Vasarhely and
Consgrad, containing an aggregate population of
80,000, telegraphed to Pesth for aid. The dykes
protecting them are threatened. Sickness has bro-
ken out among the refugees encamped on the dykes
at Szgedin.
A despatch from Szegedin, dated Friday, says
the fearful storm is still raging. A vast lake is
around the remains of the town, tossing like a sea.
Inhabitants who are not yet taken away are crowded
in the citadel and in the upper stories of a few
houses, and in railway waggons. Tbhse people are
provided with provisions, but thousands are en-
camped on the dykes, and with these it is impossi-
ble to communicate. 400 corpses were recovered in
the village of Szegedin. Yesterday it was reported
that the waters around Szegedin were subsiding.
A despatch from Szegedin later says the river
Natas is rising rapidly, and threatens a new disas-
ter. Numerous villages in the vicinity are crowed-
ed with refugees. Anarchy and confusion reigns
here and in the surrounding country because of the
insufficient number of troops. Several incendiaries
have been summarily executed.
PESTH, March 14, p.m.-A northwesterly storm
arose and carried the waves across the dykes pro-
tecting Consgrad, which contains 16,000 inhabi-
tants, and the town is partially inundated. The
people are actively repairing damages, and may
perhaps escape, as the storm has ceased. Szantes
a engaged in a similar struggle with the waters.


LONDON, March 15.-The Times' correspondent
at Pestb, writing on the 14tb, says, "Since last
night the waters have considerably fallen. Tem-
porary emigration on a large scale is going on.
The whole country between Szegedin and Temesser
is strewn with caravans of people. All villages
and boroughs have hospitably opened their houses
and stores to the refugees, some of them sheltering
almost as many strangers as regular tenants.
A number of railway trains yesterday too4 to
Temesser about 5,000 fugitives, while 500 people
went by steamer' to .Szentes. The Emperor has.
contributed, a further etut oi 10,0o fl9rn!90
PESTn, Saturday Evening.-"'entes is now the
only place in danger. The Emperor will go to
Szegedin on Sunday evening. The official state-
ment shows that of 9,700 houses in Szegedin all ex-
cept 261 were destroyed. Most of the habitations
destroyed were of the lower classes.
LONDON, March 15.-The Observer's Vienna dis-
patch states that it is thought that 6,000 persons
have been drowned.
LONDON, March 17.-The loss of property at Sze-
gedin by the flood is over seven and a half million
dollars.

LoNDON, March 14.-The British fleet yesterday
left Ismid for Gallipoli (?) for Besika Bay.
LONDON, March 15.-Advices from Bucharest
are that all the Russian troops in Roumania are
ordered home.
It is believed that Sir Austin Layard will return
as Minister to Constantinople on May 1st.
BERLIN, March 15.-Advices received from St-
Petersburg say that General Kauffman has ten-
dered his resignation because of the failure of his
Afghan policy.
The report is confirmed that the Russians are
moving upon Merv.
A despatch from Rangoon says it is thought the
British will send an ultimatum to the King of Bur.
mab. British troops will mass on the frontier next
week.
Paris despatches say that Waddington will have
to withdraw from the French Cabinet, that there
will be more interpellations, a crisis and further
modifications of the Cabinet before the Easter re-
cess. Girordin and Edmund About demand the
withdraw al of Waddington from the Premiership.
Rumors in Constantinople concerning secret ne-
gotiations for the sale of Crete to Greece, and the
cession of a naval station to France, are apparently
circulated as part of an intrigue for overthrowing
the Vizier.
The Russian Commissioners at Philipopolis have
received orders to avoil all unnecessary obstruc-
tion.
The organic statute for Eastern Roumelia may
consequently be completed before the end of the
month.
England has invited tenders for a telegraph line
to South Africa and Mauritius.
LONDON, March 15.-A despatch from Paris states
that the first proposals of the Anglo-American
Cable Company to the new French Cable Company
not being accepted, fresh proposals were made
which will probably lead to the amalgamation of
the two companies.
The firms of Robert Blacque, of Paris, and Phil-
lipin, Peliser, Powell & Co., London, connected
with the South American trade, have failed. The
liabilities are believed to be large.
LONDON, March 14.-The British steamer Severn,
from London for Quebec, ran down off Dungeness,
a pilot cutter, having on board twelve pilots and a
crew of 8 men ; ten of the pilots and five of the crew
were drowned. Two pilots and three of the crew
were saved.-[The Severn is a German vessel.]

THE ROYAL WEDDING AT WINDSOR
CASTLE.
NUPTIALs OF PRINCE ARTHUR AND THE PRINCESS
MARGARET.
WINDSOR, G. B., March 13.-The marriage of
the Duke of Connaught to Princess Louise Mar-
garet of Prussia, took place to-day at St. George's
Chapel, at Windsor, with all the ceremony of State.
The Archbishop of Canterbury performed the ser-
vice. The bride was given away by her father. At
the conclusion, the choir sang the Hallelujah
Chorus, and Mendelsshbon's wedding march pealed
forth as the bride and bridegroom left the Chapel
while a salute of guns announced the termination
of the ceremonies. The Royal Family and guests
then left the chapel.
A London despatch reports that an immense
quantity of wedding presents have been sent to
Princess Margaret.

IMPEACHMENT REJECTED, 317 to 159.
VERSAILLES, March 13.-The report of the Elec-
toral Commission, in favor of the impeachment of
the DeBroglie and Rocheboult Cabinets, came up
for discussion in the Chamber of Deputies to-day.
The impeachment was rejected by a vote of 317 to
159, and an order of the day adopted that the De-
Broglie and Rocheboult Cabinets, by their culpable
schemes, betrayed the government they should have
served; the Chamber accordingly delivers them
over to the judgment of the nation, and orders that
the foregoing be placarded in every commune in
France.

24TH REGIMENT-A practical answer to Major
O'Gorman's question in the House of Commons re-


lative to the filling of the vacancies in the 24th
Regt. will be contained in an early Gazette, the pro-
motions in succession to the officers killed in action
at Rorke's Drift being given in the regiment. Con-
sequent on the retirement from the service of Major
Logan, who arrived in England last month from
the Cape, Brevet Major Chamberlain, 2nd Bato.,
will be promoted major into the 1st Batn., Lieut.
Williams obtaining the vacant company. The death
of Brevet Lieut.Col. Pulleine is to promote Capt.
Tongue, 2nd Batn., to major in the 1st Batn., and
the following surviving subalterns are to be promot-
ed to the vacant companies, viz.-Lieuts. Bennet,
Archer, Morshead,' Sugden, Bromhead, Stanhope,
Banister and Halliday. The London Correspon-
dent of the Irish Times says :-"' Lieut. Bromhead,
of the 24th Regt., is the hero of the hour. The
more that is learnt of his defence of the British
position at Rorke's Drift, the more splendidly shine
his qualities, and, it must be added the more glor-
iously marked appear the cool and steadfast bravery
of his gallant eighty. With a promptitude by no
means characteristic of it, the War Office has, it is
said, recognized the achievement of the distinguish-
ed'and highly fortunate young officer. He not only
gets his company, but will also receive the brevet
rank of major. Once on the fair path to rank and
distinction, it is a way they have in the Army that
the impetus never ceases till lands the individual
on some height of his profession,"

The death of Elibu Burritt, the celebrated." learn-
ed blacksmith," is announced. He died at his
birth place, New Britain, Conn., on Thursday night
last, at the age of 68. Mr. Burritt, was quite widely
known as a writer and lecturer, but his chief fame
came from having acquired, without the aid of
teachers, and while working as a blacksmith, a pro-
found knowledge of nearly all the languages of Eu-
rope, together with a knowledge more or less accur-
ate, of upwards of twenty of the languages of Asia
and Africa, including Hebrew, Syraic, Chaldaic, Sa-
maritan and Ethiopic. He was of Scotch parentage,
and resided for nearly a quarter of a century in
England, where he was highly respected.


To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
The reading public of these Islands, may well
congratulate themselves on the superior Library
" established by Act of Legislature" to which
they have access. A finer or more judicious col-
lection of books is not to be found in any city of its
size this side the Atlantic, than that contained in
the Public Buildings of Hamilton. This noble col-
lection has just received an important addition, and
I notice in your last issue of the Gazette a new Cata-
loguo that cannot fail to gratify the subtle taste of
the most omnivorous book-worm. The liberality
of the Legilature i this matter is worthy of all
praise.
Permit me, however, to call the attention of the
genial Librarian-Mr. Frith-to the abominable
practice in which some would-be-witty readers in-
dulge of pencilling obscure notes and stupid com-
ments on the margins of the page, thus defacing
the books and disturbing the quiet minds of thought-
ful readers who follow them. Of course writers
make points and readers detect them. Let thblat-
ter make notes of them in his common-place-book.
Sometimes writers are dull and stupid-even Hom-
er nods occasionally-and some bright-eyed critic
finds it out; let him indulge a laugh in a quiet
way. But this thrusting of pencilled opinions up-
on a guileless public is not in good taste, and cer-
tainly is not an evidence of culture. Will the
scribbling geniuses make a note of this ?

IN MEMORIAL.

Throughout England's loyal Kingdom grief is loud,
and deep,
For noble Princess Alice all hearts must wail, and
weep.
Within the Royal Palace one bends beneath the
blow,
In silent anguish mourning, for tears refuse to flow.
In Darmstadt's Ducal Palace, more bitter still the
woe ;
No tongue can tell the anguish those stricken ones
must know:
The tender wife and mother is borne from them
away,
And naught can soothe their sorrow, the aching
pain allay.
Across the wide Atlantic the mournful tidings went,
In her new and distant home a sister's heart is rent.
All alone she weeps, and sadly murmurs o'er and
o'er
Shall we too so lately parted meet on Earth no
more?"
Ah stern Reaper! thy sickle was all too sharp, and
keen,
Why reapest thou so quickly the flowers so lately
seen,
Or if thou wouldst gather some to bloom in Para-
dise,
Why call two from one garden, why would not one
suffice.
The first a lovely blossom was given up to thee,
And the Father's heart tho' stricken bowed to thy
decree
For he knew that his loved Flower so sweet and
wondrous fair
Would bloom anew in Heaven, and he should find
it there.
But not enough-not half enough, the Reaper
came again
Nor tears nor prayers can move him, all weep and
pray in vain;
Saith he, "the tender blossom will fade if long
alone,
I must take one Parent stem, one Rose that is full
blown.
"And have you not remaining around one Parent
stem
Some bright and beauteous flowerets your garden
fair to gem;
And while they will droop and fade, and withered
too must be,
Mine will bloom for ever then why grudge ye them
to me?"
"Tho' our Blossoms fade, and withered our Roses
must be
Fain would we keep them with us their loved forms
e'er to see
The heart is weak, O reaper, and would not live
alone;
Would not spare one Rosebud that once in our
garden shone."
"Ungrateful ones," the Reaper cried, "your plea
is in vain
'Tis not for myself I reap, I for my Master came
With Roses, Buds, and Blossoms he fills your garden
fair,
Yet ye would not have him claim one Rosebud for
his share." A.

FRIGHTFUL MORTALITY FROM SMALL POX -A
Montreal despatch says there was seven hundred
and twenty-eight deaths from smnall-pox in that
city in 1878.


OFFICIAL DESPATCHES FROM THE SEAT OF
WAR.
A supplement to the London Gazette which was
published last night (March 5,) contains the follow-
ing :-
WAR OFFICE, March 5.
The following Despatch has been received by the
Secretary of State for War, from Lieutenant-General
Lord Chelmsford, K.C.B., Commanding the Forces in
South Africa;-
From Lieutenant-General Lord Chelmsford, K.C.B.,
to the Right Honorable the Secretary of State for
War.
PIETERMARITZBURG, Natal, Feb. 3.
Sir,-1. Since the date of my last despatch, I have
received a copy of Col. Pearson's report (No. 1 Co-
lumn) on the occurrence of the 23rd January, when
he defeated the Zulu forces with a loss of 300 killed.
This report, addressed to His Excellency the High
Commissioner, has been published for the information
of the Colony, a copy of it I havoc the honor to enclose
(marked A) likewise that furnished me by Admiral
Sullivan from Captain Campbell, R.N., commanding
Naval Brigade, with No. 1 Column (A. A.)
2. Colonel Wood (No. 4 Column), on the 24th
January, dispersed the force of Zulus with a loss of
50 men killed, that had been ordered to attack him.
(Copy of his report attached, marked B.)
News -of the events of the 22nd ultimo had been
conveyed to Colonel Wood at Utrecht, with great
readiness, by Captain Allan Gardner, 14th Hussars.
This officer had escaped from the camp of No. 3 Co-
lumn, after conveying orders to the officer command-
ing there from Colonel Glyn, C.B., twelve miles dis-
tant. Colonel Wood in consequence took up a posi-
tion covering Utrecht.
3. On my arrival here, I at once directed Colonel
Pearson to act as seemed best, without reference to my
previous instructions.
A copy of my telegram and his reply I forward,
marked (B. B.)
4. The Zulus have, since the 24th ultimo, shown no
signs of activity, and everything is quiet along the
border.
I have no means of forming an opinion as to the
reason of this. It is confidently stated by some that
it is only preparatory to further energetic action;
others again, who claim to be well informed from na-
tive sources, declare that the losses inflicted on the
Zulus, at Isandhlwana"alone were so enormous as to
make them disinclined to attack us again, unless they
are fully assured they have an advantage.
It must be remembered that since our crossing the
frontier the Zulus have been five times defeated, and
always with loss.
5. I append a return, showing the distribution of the
forces under my command (marked C.)
5. Colonel Pearson seems fully assured of his abil-
ity to hold his own against any number of Zulus.
He has 1200 British troops, with about 320 rounds
per rifle, and provisions for two months.
Major Barrow, 19th Hussars, reports well of the
position of the post and its healthiness. The water is
close to and under fire of the fort, and is very good.
The road to Ekowe from the Lower Tugela is re-
ported by the same officer to be a good one, and with
two exceptions the country is open.
I, therefore, feel that with the force within reach of
him at the Lower Tugela, Colonel Pearson is author-
ised to hold his present position. I proceed to-mor-
row to that place, when I shall be better able to form
an opinion as to the steps to be taken to organize the
detachments at the Lower Tugela.
7. Of the seven battalions of Native Contingent, all
but three have disbanded themselves; these three have
not been engaged. The conduct of the two battalions
under Commandant Lonsdale with No. 3 Column, up
to the day following the disaster to the camp, was all
that I could wish ; those, however, who knew the na-
tives foresaw that they would break up after hearing
of the death of their chiefs (who had remained in
camp on the 22nd ult.) I cannot, therefore count on
retaining the services of any native contingent with
the columns across the border, beyond those of some
two or three hundred mounted men. I am still in
hopes, however, that the authority of the Colonial Go-
'vernment will be asserted, and will prove sufficient to
'fill up these battalions, the officers and non-commis-
sioned officers of which are still on the frontier, where
they will be available for frontier defence at least.
*8. Such is the position of affairs in the Colony.
Every effort will be made to procure reinforcements.
Captain Buller, Rifle Brigade, one of my aides-de-
camp, has started for the Free State with a letter to
the President from H. E. the High Commissioner,
wLth the view of procuring mounted men, both white
atid black. A force of 200 mounted men is already
being raised at Port Elizabeth. and a draft of 50
mounted men from the Cape Colony for the Frontier
Light Horse arrived yesterday.
9. Mr. Sprigsg, the Colonial Secretary, Cape Colony,
has shown every desire to assist us at this emergency;
he despatched at once the three companies of the 2nd
Battalion 4th Regiment from Cape Town; they have
arrived at Durban, and are on their march here. The
head-quarters and four companies ot the 88th Regi-
inept will shortly arrive from King William's Town,
their place being taken by Volunteers.
10. Every effort will be made to reinforce Colonel
Wood's column, in view of enabling him to resume
active operations from that side.
11. The refitting No. 3 column will, of necessity,
take some little time,as the road (160 miles) from this
to Helpmakaar is very much cut up by the rains.
12. I have not yet received from Colonel Hassard,
C.B., C.R.E., the proceedings of the Court of Inquiry
ordered to assemble regarding the loss of the camp on
the 22nd ultimo; neither have I received from Colonel
Glyn, C.B., commanding No. 3 column, an .official list
of the casualties on that occasion.


I regret also to state that I am still without an offi-
cial report from Colonel Glyn of the details of the
gallant defence made on the 22nd and 23rd ultimo by
the Company of the 2nd Battalion 24th Regiment of
the post at Rocke's Drift.

THE. ACTION AT INYEZANE.
COLONEL PEARSON'S OFFICIAL REPORT.
From Colonel Pearson, Commanding No. 1 Column,
to the Military Secretary to His Excellency the
High Commissioner.
Etshowe, Zuzuland, January 23, 1879.
SIR,-I have the honor to report my arrival here at
10 a.m. this day, with the column under my com-
inand, and, I am happy to state, without a casualty of
any kind-except, of course, those which occurred in
the engagement of yesterday, of which I have already
duly informed you by telegram, despatched yesterday
evening.
I Yesterday morning the mounted troops which pre-
ceded the column under Major Barrow had crossed
the Inyezane River, which is about four miles from
our camping ground on the previous night, when I
received a note from him to say that he had selected a
fairly open space for a halting place, which he had
carefully vedetted. I at one rode forward to recon-
noitre, and found the ground covered with more bush
than seemed desirable for an outspan; hut as there
was no water between the Inyezane and the places
where we bivouacked last night-four miles further on
and with several steep hills to climb-I decided upon
outspanning for a couple of hours, to feed and rest the
oxen, and to enable the men to breakfast.
It was then just eight o'clock, and was in the act of
giving directions about the pickets and scouts required
for our protection, and the waggons had already begun
to park, when the leading company of the Native
Contingent, who were scouting in "ront-personally
directed byOaptain Hart, staff officer to the officer
commanding that regiment-discovered the enemy
advancing rapidly over the ridges in our front and
making for the clumps of bush around us.


The Zulus at once opened a heavy fire upon the nien
of the company who had shown themselves in the
open, and they lost one officer, four non-commissioned
officers and three men killed, almost immediately after
the firing began.
Unfortunately, owing to scarcely any of the officers
or non-commissioned officers of the Native Contingent
being able to speak Kaffir, and some not even Eng-
lish, (there are several foreigners among them) it has
been found most difficult to communicate orders, and
it is to be feared that these men who lost their lives
by gallantly holding their ground did so under the
impression that it was the duty of .the Contingent to
fight in the first line instead of scouting only, and af.
ter an engagement to pursue.
I must add, however, that every exertion has been
made, by Major Greeves, Commandant Nettleton and
Captain Hart to explain to both the officers and men
the duties expected of them. These officers, indeed,
have been indefatigable in their exertions.
As soon as the firing commenced, I directed the
Naval Brigade, under Commander Campbell, Lieut.
Lloyd's division of guns, and Captain Jackson's and
Lieut. Martin's companies of the Buffs, to take up a
position on a knol close by the road (and under which
they were halted,) and from whence the whole of the
Zulu advances could be seen and dealt with.
Meanwhile, the waggons continued to park, and as
soon as the length of the column had thereby suffici-
ently decreased, I directed the two companies of the
Buffs which were guarding the waggons about half
way down the column to clear the enemy out of the
bush, which had been already shelled, and fired into
with rockets and musketry, by the troops on the knoll
above mentioned. These companies, led by Captains
Harrison and Wyld, and guided by Captain Macgre-
gor, D.A.Q.M.G., whom I sent back for this purpose,
moved out in excellent order, and quickly getting into
skirmishing order, brought their right shoulders gra-
dually forward, and drove the Zulus before them back
into the open, which again exposed them to the rock-
ets, shells, and musketry from the knoll.
This movement released the main body of the
Mounted Infantry and Volunteers, who, with the
Company of Royal Engineers, had remained ncar the
Inyezane, to protect that portion of the convoy of
waggons. The Royal Engineers happened to be
working at the drift when the engagement began.
When thus released both the Engineers and mount-
ed troops, under Captain Wynne and Major Barrow,
respectively moved forward with the infantry. Skir-
mishers on the left of the latter, the whole being sup-
ported by a half company of the Buffs and a half
company of the 99th Regiment, sent out by Lieut.-
Col. Welman, 99th Regiment, who, with the rear of
the column, was now coming up.
About this time the enemy was observed by Com-
mander Campbell to be trying to outflankiour left and
he offered to go with a portion of the Naval Brigade
to drive away a body of Zulus who had got possession
of a kraal about 400 yards from the knoll, and which
was helping their turning movement. The Naval
Brigade was supported by a party of the officers and
non-commissioned officers of the Native Contingent,
under Captain Hart, who were posted on high ground
on the left of the Etshowe road, and who checked the
Zulus from making any further attempt on our left.
Shortly afterwards, when the kraal was evacuated,
Commander Campbell suggested that the enemy
should be driven off still further, to which I at once
assented, and I desired Colonel Parnell to take Cap-
tain Forster's company, the Buffs, which up to this
time had remained at the foot of the knoll, and assist
the Naval Brigade to attack some heights beyond the
kraal, upon which a considerable body of Zulus were
still posted.
The action was completely successful, and the Zu-
lus now fled in all directions, both from our front and
left, and before the skirmishers on the right.
I now ordered the column to be reformed, and at
noon we resumed our march, and bivouacked for the
night on the ground described in the first part of my
letter.
The last shot I fired was about half-past nine a.m.
[ enclose a list of the killed and wounded, and in
addition I beg to state that both Colonel Parnell and
myself had our horses shot under us.
The loss of the enemy I can of course only approx-
imately give. By all accounts, however-and I have
taken every pains to verify and confirm the statements
made-upwards of 300 Zulus were killed. The
wounded, if there were any, were either carried off or
hid in the bush, as only two were found. The dead
were lying about in heaps of seven and eight, ani in
one place ten dead bodies were found close together.
At another 35 were counted within a very small space.
As far as I can ascertain the numbers opposed to us
were about 4000, composed of the Umxapu, Umdhla-
nefu, and the Ingulubi Regiments, and some 650 men
of the district.
[ had already been warned, through Mr. Fynney,
Border Agent, and other sources, that I might expect
to be attacked at any moment after crossing the Um-
sindusi River, but the number of Zulus stated to be in
the neighborhood was estimated at about 8000.
All the commanding officers speak highly of the
behaviour of their men during the engagement, and of
the coolness of the officers and the pains taken by
them to control the expenditure of ammunition. This
I can personally vouch for as regards troops on the
knoll, as I was present with them the whole time.
The practice made by Lieut. Lloyd's guns, and bly the
rockets of the Naval Brigade, directed by Mr. Cotter,
boatswain of H. M. S. Active, was excellent, and no
doubt contributed materially to the success ot the day.
Major Barrow particularly wishes me to mention
the steadiness and good conduct under fire of the Na-
tal Mounted Volunteer Corps. Those engaged were
the Victoria and Stanger Mounted Rifles and the
Natal Hussars.


Of the commanding officers themselves I have al-
ready spoken.
From the officers of my staff, Col. Walker, C.B.,
Capt. Macgregor and Lieut. Knight, the Buffs-my
orderly offioer-I have received every assistance, not
only during yesterday's engagement, but ever since
they joined me.
I cannot speak too highly of the energy and atten-
tion to their duties of Staff Surgeon Norbury, R.N.,
mv Senior Medical Officer, and his assistants. The
field hospital was established in a convenient place,
almost immediately after the firing began, and the
wounded received every attention.
Lastly, I wish to report the good example shown to
the Native Pioneers by Captain Beddoes and Lieut.
Porrington, who, throughout our march, under the di-
rection of Lieut. Maine, R. E., repaired our road in
front, and during the engagement remained on the
knoll fighting rifle in hand.
I must apologise for the great length of this letter;
but as the present is the first campaign of British
troops against the Zulus, and as the Natal natives vere
being tested as Soldiers for the first time, I have pur-
posely gone into details. Should we again be en-
gaged with the enemy, there will, of course, be no
further necessity for describing everything so minutely.
To-morrow morning I propose sending two compa-
nies of the Buffs, two companies of the Native Con-
tingent and a small number of mounted men, to rein-
force Lieut.-Col. Ely, 99th Regiment, who, with three
companies of his Regiment, left behind for the pur-
pose, is now on his way to Etshowe, with a convoy of
60 commissariat wagons.
I have written to request Colonel Ely not to ad-
vance beyond the Umsindusi till reinforced.
On Saturday Major Coats starts for the Tugela with
50)empty wagons, escorted by four companies infantry,
two native companies, and a few troopers to bring up
more stores.
I enclose a couple of sketches of the ground on
which the engagement took place, made by Captain
McGregor and Lieut. Knight from memory.
I have the honor to be, Sir,
Your most obedient servant,
C. K. PEARSON, Colonel.
