Profanity never did any man the least good. No
man is the richer, or happier, or the wiser for it.
It commends no one to any society. It is dis-
gusting to the refined; abominable to the good ;
Insulting to those with whom we associate; degrad-
ing to the mind; unprofitable, needless, and inju.
rious to society.

THE LEssoN FOR LIFE.-There is seldom a line
of glory written upon the earth's surface, but a line
of suffering runs parallel with it; and they that
read the lustrous syllables of the one, and stop not
to decipher the spotted and worn inscription of the
other, get the lesser half of the lesson earth has to
give.

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 large scale
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 swings must be made du-
ring the present or next month if it is desired to
secure a crop during the present year.

"t The Royal Mail Steamer Beta, would have

previous to that day. The Beta may be looked for
to-day.
THE MAIL STEAMER CANIMA.-Up to Sundown
last evening there was no signal for the Mail Steamerp
Canima from New York due yesterday morning.
The thick squally weather which has prevailed since
Sunday evening would doubtless prevent her ap-
proaching the land.

THE UNITED STATES WAR STEAMER
"PLYMOUTH."
The U. S. Frigate Plymouth, Captain Harmony,
from Boston, arrived on the 25th ult. flying the
yellow flag. She was visited immediately on
reaching Murray's Anchorage, by Dr. Hunter,
Health Officer :--The following report being given
to him by the Surgeon on board:--" The Plymouth
left Boston on the 15th ult. for a cruise to the
Windward Islands, and turned back on the 25th
(being three hundred miles South-east of Ber-
muda) four cases of yellow fever having appeared.
Two days before this, it was rough and the hatches
had to be battened down, which made it very close
on board. ,
The Plymouth was in the West Indies in Novr.
last and called of the Island of St. Thomas where
she had some washing done on shore, after which
she .proceeded to Santa Cruz, remaining there
three-weeks, when a midshipman, a marine and
two seamen were attacked with yellow fever, three
of them died there. She sailed the evening of the
same day which was the 7th November, for Nor-
folk, Virginia. That night three fresh cases ap-
peared-but they recovered. Upon reaching Nor-
folk, she was quarantined for seventeen days, when
she left for Boston, where the stores were all taken
out, and the ship cleansed and fumigated, aband-
oned for a month by the crew, and exposed to a
temperature of ten degrees below zero for three
months. A singular fact in connection with this
outbreak of fever, is that the first man who was at-
tacked on this last voyage, had his hammock sus-
pended to the same hooks, used for a similar pur-
pose by the marine who was the first case at Santa
Cruz.
The Plymouth after receiving a supply of coal,
under the strictest quarantine, left for Boston on
the morning of the 27th ult. The sick were reported
by the Surgeon as doing well, and there were no
fresh cases. The Pilot, as a precautionary measure,
was detained on board.
We much fear that the stormy weather of the
past few days, but particularly during the after-
noon of yesterday and last night-for it at times
blew tremendously-has caused extensive injury to
all our growing crops, particularly the potato,
which was previously looking most promising.

Lord Napier, of Magdala, will return to his post
as Governor of Gibraltar. This sets at rest the ru-
mour that he was to be sent to South Africa.
The leraldsays that the famous English Colt
Peter, who has been but once beaten on the Eng-
lish turf, is expected to come over next fall and run
a mile and a half in Jerome Park, against Mr.
Keene's Spendthrift.

VIRGINIA'S DEBT SETTLEMENT.
RICnMoNND, Va., March 24.--The House of De-
1 gates to-day, at twenty minutes past three p.m., I
took a tinal vote on the Senate bill for the settle-
ment of the State debt, resulting in the passage of
bill-yeas 76, nays 50,-being nine more than the
necessary constitutional vote. It now goes to the
Senate for concurrence with Ihe amendments, which,
however, do not materially affect the main provi-
siops o! the bill.


THE WEATHER.-Ever since the morning of 28th
ultimo, there has buen a gradual fall of the Barom-
eter which now (noon 31st March) stand lower than
at any time since the exceptionally low Barometer
of 31st December, 1877,-when it was 00,20 lower
than the present which in turn is 00-20 lower than
during the passing cyclone which broke the Bermuda
Dock from her fastenings-the wind, which was
from S.S.W. last night at midnight and this
morning from S.W. to W.S.W. will, together with
the squalls of hail, do much damage to the young
shoots and blossoms of the Orange and Avocado
Pear Trees which the last three weeks of genial
weather had invited into bloom-and wherever po-
tatoes are attempted to be grown without shelter of
the Cedar much damage must ensue to their tender
stems. We have heard of no damage from the
thunder and lightning.

Mr. Page reports the cargo to be still in good
order, that her capstan, windlass, pumps and steering
apparatus are of the most improved description. He
believes that when she was about to be abandoned the
holes were bored through her with the view of sinking
her-(there being a depth of at least four feet of sand
and shell in her bottom as ballast) so that she should
not prove, as she likely would if left afloat, a cause
pf disaster to some other vessel,

The election of Archdeacon Sweatman to the see
of Toronto by 88 clerical votes out of 96, and 93 lay
votes out of 94, is an indication that extreme views
are not to govern the Church. The High and Low
Church parties were so divided that no solution
could be arrived at save by a compromise, selecting
a person of broad moderate opinions likely to up-
hold the Church in her integrity without carrying
out theories of usurpation.

A DERELICT.-The Italian Brigantine L'Avvenire,
of Milazzo, (so lettered on her stern) was towed into
St. George's Harbour on Sunday last by the Steam
Tug C. F. Ackermann from Five Fathom Hole, where
she had anchored on the previous evening. The A. is
in charge of Mr. James Cope Page and a crew of 4 men,
who bravely volunteered from the Ship Black Prince, to
endeavour to save her. Mr. Page informs us that the
Black Prince, Captain Tyrell, when on a voyage
from Rio bound to St. John, N.B., early on Ihe
morning of the 23rd ultimo,-then in Latitude 29,
Longitude 67-discovered a vessel in distress ; on
coming up with her found her to be the Italian
Bright. Avvenire, with her foremast gone, aban-
doned, with eight feet of water in her ,hold. laden
with oranges, lemons and some casks of wine. Finding
that she was a substantial and strongly built oak vessel
of about four years old, Captain Tyrell thought
it worth a trial to get her into some port. The 1st of-
ficer and four men of the B. P. volunteered to make
the attempt, and the Captain suggested their trying for
Bermuda. The first work of the volunteers immediate-
ly on getting on board L'A., was to erect as jury-
masts forward, two spars which they had obtained from
the B. P., and then to endeavour to lessen the water in
her hold, if not to free her entirely. One pump was in
position, but had evidently not been used for a long
time as every portion of it was rusty and when
lifted to ascertain the cause of its not fetching-the
wrapper was found to be quite rotten. After getting the
first pump in working order, they essayed to place the
other in same condition and after some time, for the
several parts were scattered about, the second pump
was in operation-they were worked by a wheel, and it
was soon found'that the quantity of water thrown by
these pumps was enormous, still it was evident there
were some inlets of water through the vessel's bottom,
and on examination they discovered that three au-
ger holes had been bored through the ceiling, the plank
and the copper-about six feet below the water line ;--
the first was near the fore-foot, the second in a line with
the mainmast and the third close to the stern-post-all
of course bored from within-and the augers, evidently
used for the purpose, were found on board. After these
holes were plugged with soft wood, the vessel was
soon freed of water. There were some provisions on
board and good comfortable beds. Under her jury rig,
as a fore-and-after, she made good progress, proved
herself a weatherly boat and reached the anchorage as
above stated on Saturday.
Her register, her articles and log-book could not be
found-a punishment book dated in 1874, was found
but without a single entry-and also a track chart
with two voyages marked, one from the Mediter-
ranean to Madeira, and the second commencing some
distance west of Madeira and continuing toward the lati-
tude and longitude in which she was met with-the last
date being the 17th, but no month or year given. The
17th March was probably about the date she was aban-
doned as several live fowls were found on board.
Since her arrival here it has been ascertained by re-
ference to the New York Marine Register that L'Avve-
nire is of the burthen of 332 tons. and was from

Lord Chelmford's communications to the Duke

A despatch to the Daily News from Rangoon says
the British policy is not to s nd an ultimatum to
the king of Burmah, but wait for a movement of
Burmese troops massing on the frontier. The
government buildings at Akyab have been burned.
Fears of incendiarism are entertained at Rangoon.
THE PLAGUE IN RUSSIA.-One of the physicians
despatched by Germany to Astrachan has reported
that a fresh case of plague appeared on the 21st of
March at Wetlianka. A despatch says that Gen-
eral Melikoff has `returned to Wetlianka, and
decided to burn sixty-seven houses of the value of
45,216 roubles. The Minister of the Interior has
ordered the Governors of the various provinces to
co-operate vigilantly against the spread of epide-
mics during spring.

ENGLAND AND TURKEY.-In the House of Lords
last night the Marquis of Salisbury said if the
Treaty of Berlin was not complied with and the Sul-
tan thought the presence of a British fleet in the
Sea o4 Marmora and the Black Sea would tend to
secure compliance he (the Sultan) was authorized
to ask for assistance from his allies; but the British
government certainly did not contemplate any such
contingency, and therefore it would have been inju-
dicious to retain the fleet in the Sea of Mar-
mora.

THE SOUTH AFRICAN WAR.
The Loyalty of the Fingoes Questioned-Sickncss
among the English Troops.
LONDON, March 24.-The correspondent of the
Daily News at Cape Town says there is much sus-
picion as to the loyalty of the Fingoes, who con-
stitute a large and powerful tribe. The sickness
among the soldiers of the garrison of Helpmakaar
is deplorable. Of fifty-six carbineers eleven only
are fit foi'duty. The negotiations to detach Cete-
wayo's brother and followers from the Zulu Chief
have apparently failed.
The Position of Colonel Pearson.-Advices from
Cape Town to the 5th inst., mention a report that
Colonel Pearson had made a raid and burnt Cete-
wayo's old kraal. Other advices of the same date,
however, do not give-the impression that he is in a
position to undertake an offensive operation, and
state that the Zulus.have destroyed the road from
Tugela to Ekowe, abd seem determined to do their
utmost to prevent relief from reaching him. All
idea of attempting to send him relief before the ar-
rival of further reinforcements seems to be aban-
doned.
Lord Chelmsford's Resignation.-The Post and
Times state, apparently on authority, that Lord
Chelmsford's letter-has been generally misinterpre-
ted. It does not imply that either Lord Chelms-
ford or Sir Bartle Frere is eager to cast off his res-
ponsibility. In consequence of the prevalence of
sickness it was Lord Chelmsford's duty to provide
against a contingency which might leave the army
without a responsible chief, and as the Commander-
in-Chief holds a dormant commission, to come into
force on the death or incapacitation of Sir Bartle
Free, Lord Chelmsford pointed out that the officer
sent to the Cape as his second in command should
be competent to undertake both the military and
civil administration.
The Post declares the report that Lord Chelms-
ford has been superseded is unfounded.

NoT IN FAVOR OF THE WAR.-Sir Michael Hicks-
Beach, Colonial Secretary, writes to Sir Bartle
Frere on the 19th inst. as follows :-"The govern-
ment are unable to find any evidence of the urgent
necessity which alone could justify your taking,
without their full knowledge and sanction, a course
almost certain to result in war, which I had pre-
viously impressed upon you every effort should
have been made to avoid. The government with
great regret adopts the above view. They do not
doubt your future action will prevent a recurrence
of complaint. They have no desire to withdraw
their confidence in the present crisis." The British
government has Chartered the Dominion line
steamers Ontario and Borussia. The former will

. CAUSE OF DIPTHERIA.-Diptheria is engaging
the very serious attention of the medical fraternity
in London. The subtle and infectious nature of
this disease is established beyond all doubt, and what
concerns medical circles at the present moment
is the question of its cause. With regard to this
point a meeting of prominent members of the pro-
fession was held last week, and in their opinion the
disease must be ascribed to the milk of diseased
cows.

PRESENT STATE OF THE ELECTRIC LIGHT. -The
present state of the electric light question may be
said to be a tentative one, and the gas companies
are with much enterprise now giving their retort
courteous by showing that they are in a position-if
people choose to pay for it-to give quite as powerful
light as the electric light; and let us hope before
long that it will be quite as perfect. There can be
no doubt that the use of electricity for the produc-
tion of light is a very wasteful as well as a costly
process, for the energy that is generated in the ma-
chine is not all consumed in the lamp, but is pro.
portionately distributed over the whole circuit. It
is therefore not utilised only in the place where it is
wanted, as in the case of gas. If we are using a
certain amount of energy in an electric lamp to
light a street, we are wasting as much if not more
energy in the street in maintaining the current to
produce that light.-Nature.


insure the execution of the provisions relative to
Roumelia. Russia, for the present, merely offers
the proposals relative to mixed occupation as sug-
gestions. Should, however, the Powers approve,
she will officially present positive proposals. There
is every probability that all except Turkey will
favor the proposals.
EASTERN ROUMELIA.-A despatch to the Morning
Post from Berlin says Russia has proposed the oc-
cupation of Eastern Roumelia by a mixed contin-
gent or one belonging to a neutral State. A Tir-
nova despatch to the Times says :-" M. Gueshoff, a
leading Bulgarian inhabitant of Philoppopolis, has
started for the European capitals to endeavor to
obtain some modification of the present arrange-
ments for the government of Eastern Roumelia.
He has been advised to confine -his efforts to the
single point of securing a European governor for
the province. This would be a fair compromise,
and would probably prevent any serious outbreaks."'
A Philoppopolis correspondent says the Eastern
Roumelian International Commission will complete
the compilation of the constitution In about a week
and will then proceed to Constantinople to discuss
various questions with the Porte. M. Schmidt,Di-
rector General of Finances of Eastern Roumelia,
will shortly tender his resignation.

Dr. J. J. Drysdale, president of the Literary and
Philosophical Society of Liverpool, claims that the
mortality of that city has been reduced by 18,000
within eight years by means of sanitary measures.
Mr. William Gifford Palgrave, the celebrated
traveller in Arabia, is the British Consul General in
Bulgaria. At the banquet given at Tirnova on the
opening of the National Assembly he toasted Bul-
garia as the last born among European States, add-
ing, the last, that is, for the present," a remark
evidently pointing to the neighboring province of
Roumelia.
The Zulus are found to be armed with the best
breech-loading rifles, are capital marksmen and have
a supply of explosive shells of the latest pattern.
The Natal authorities are much exercised over the
question, "Who arms the Zulus?" the credit or
blame being generally attributed to the Portuguese
of Delagoa Bay. The Americans and Russians are
named in the same connection.
The London Lancet thinks that "the public are
not altogether wrong in attributing the lowness of
spirits which it says is so generally complained of
just now to the weather. The tolerably well sec-.
tion of the community' report themselves to be suff-
ering from unwonted depression and uneasiness, ac-
companied with loss of appetite and inability to
sleep; and the explanation our medical authority
finds in the relations which subsist between such
mental depression as constitutes melancholia and
the defective discharge of its functions by the skin."
The Lancet says nothing about the depressing effect
on England of the late news from Zululand.

There were terrific gales with squalls all over
England on the 23rd ul'., snow accompanied the
storm in all directions except in the vicinity of Ox -
ford, were rain fell. Hail storms occurred in many
districts. In London snow was falling on the 24th
and the weather had grown intensely cold.
The French floating battery Arrogante foundered
off Hyeres, Frances, in a gale on the 19th March,
and of a crew of 122 person forty-seven were drown-
ed. She carried 6 ten ton guns and was of 1,338
tons burthen.

BRAZIL.-Rio JANEIRO, March 1.-Five of the
seamen of the Elverton have been put under arrest
for complicity with the homicide of Captain Bar-
clay by the second mate, who is a Scotchman. He
and the seaman are to go to the United States in
the City of Para, to leave on the 6th.
On the 17th of February the British packet Ar-
ancania took as prisoner to England, Joseph Pis-
torina, one of the murderers, in 1876, of the Captain
and officers of the British bark Caswell. Pistoria,
who is said to be a Greek, left the vessel in a boat
while she was passing the mouth of the River Plate
and settled in Uruguay. However, he was recog-
nized by James Carrick, the man who, with the aid
of another, overpowered the remaining murderers
and carried the vessel into Queenstown. Carrick
accompanied Pistoria in the Arancania.

NEW YORK, March 15.-Rowell, (an,.Englishman)
won the walking match for the Astley belt and the
championship of the world, for six days' walking,
covering 500 miles in 141 hours; Ennis second, who
made 475; Harriman third, 450. It is thought the
gate receipts will amount to $50,000. Rowell will
receive $25,000, Ennis $.5,000, and Harriman
$10,000.
O'Leary left the track on the 14th.

sail on friday for .the United States, to take on

Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, writing to Sir Bartle
Frere on the 20th inst., says :-" Phough their views
are subject to modification by future events, the
government, when it becomes possible to decide
upon peace conditions, are indisposed to sanction
annexation or any further interference with the in-
ternal affairs of Zulu than is necessary for securing
the safety of the colonies."

THE AFGHAN WAR.
LONDON, March 25.-The Viceroy of India tele-
graphs that reports are in circulation to the effect
that Yakoob Khan has sent large detachments of
troops to Khurd-Cabul and Khak-i-Tezin, two towns
on the road to Jellalabad. The significance of this
movement would seem to be that the Ameer is go.
ing to meet his foes rather than wait for the siege
of Cabul. The point nearest the invaders, Khak-i.
Tezin, is about twenty-eight miles from the capital.
It is well situated for defence. Khurd Cabul is
nine miles nearer the seat of government. The
Viceroy's despatch adds that Generals Browne and
Roberts are concentrating their forces at advanced
points. The Standard remarks that there are many
reasons to believe this concentration is meant to
alarm Yakoob Khan, and is not a sign of an early
advance.

A RUSSIAN CIRCULAR.-The Times' Vienna des-
patch says Russia has already issued a circular re-
peating the assurances of her firm intention to
strictly conform to the Treaty of Berlin. The cir-
cular refers to a suggestion made by an Austrian
plenipotentiary at the Berlin Congress, that if the
period for evacuation arrived before the organizati-on
of Roumelia was complete the province should be
temporarily occupied by a mixed corps of 15,000
men. The quartering of such mixed corps, in which
each signatory Power, could participate, in the pro-
vince for a year seems to Russia the best means to

Q.f ID~ A FROYAL GA-ZFYII


To the Editor of the Royal Gaette.
DEAR MR. EDITOR.-It having been told me by
several that evident attention was given by a large
congregation at St. Ann's Church, to the first sermon
delivered bythe newly appointed Rector; which was
on Charity"; and the force therein given by him to
the great benefits that may be conveyed to the
erring by a just appreciation, if "Christian Love
predominated :" brought to my remembrance lines,
written by me days long gone by, and prompts
me to request of you a place for them in your
paper, (which I am fully aware is extensively and
justly appreciated.) Many adversities and dis-
tresses have been my lot since these lines were
written :--I am now past the years of "three score
and ten,"-my nearest and dearest departed, and
am nearly blind, consequently without the com-
fort held by me then, of penning my thoughts,
which tended to soothe, and prevented my dwelling
on misfortunes ; I feel as left only a blank among
the multitude. Should the lines awake a feeling of
charity and brotherly love, and tend to check that
hatred I fear at times is too strongly evidenced
where dislike is engendered, giving rise to censori-
ous and uncharitable remarks, I shall be more
than glad-and will still sing-
SPEAK NO ILL."
Nay, speak no ill; a kindly word,
Cani, ever leave a sting behind
And, oh to breathe each tale we've heard,
Is far beneath a noble mind.
Full oft a better seed is sown,
By choosing thus a kinder plan ;
For if but little good we know,
Still let- us speak the best we can.
Then speak no ill-but lenient be
To others failings as your own,
If you're the first a fault to see
Be not the first to make it known.
For life is but a passing day,
No lip may tell how brief its span ;
Then, Ob the little time we stay,
Let's speak of all, the best we can. N. B.
Southampton, March 24, 1879.
***
BRITISH AND FOREIGN BIBLE SOCIETY.-This
society has issued an appeal for enlarged support,
in which they state that during recent wars the
committee thought it right to sanction the sale of
the Scriptures to the military at a very reduced price,
as well as a free distribution of them to the sick and
wounded. The cost of such a work was necessarily
very great. In the Franco-German war it amounted
to 16,000, and in the Russo-Turkish it has reached
the large sum of 23,000. The committee are most
unwilling to withdraw from any country which they
at present occupy, or to reduce the staff of colpor-
teaurs whom they employ. They would far rather
maintain their work in its integrity, and at the
same time press onwards to the fuller occupation
of other lands-such as Africa, the Caucasus,
Persia, and the regionsbeyond. But the balancing
of last year's account showed an excess of expendi-
ture over receipts of 15,000, and an even larger
deficit is expected in the accounts of the present
year. To meet this deficiency the committee have
been compelled to draw largely upon their reserve
fund, which has now been reduced to 47,000, or
barely three months' expenditure, a far lower figure
than is considered prudent in view of the large
engagements which must be punctually met. An
imperative necessity is thus laid upon them to cur-
tail their existing work, and refrain from occupy-
ing new ground, unless such a response is made to
their present appeal as will justify a continuance of
the policy by which they have hitherto been guided
The fact that the various missionary societies are
dependent on the Bible Society for nearly all the
versions which they use in the prosecution of their
work gives it a strong claim for generous support
from Christians of all denominations.

THE INTELLIGENT MONKEY OF SIAM.

eis Skill in Detecting bad Coins and his passion for
Robbing Orchards.
From the London Telegraph.
"Monkeys," says an Arabic proverb, "can talk
perfectly well if they choose so to do; but they are
far too clever to let us into their secret. Well, they
know that were they to speak, they would be made
to work ; so they wisely hold their tongues." If
certain strange stories that have recently reached
our hemisphere from the distant realm of Siam he
founded upon fact, the "incomplete man," as some
German physiologists describe our respected- an-
cestor, whose fondness for apples is considered to
have exercised considerable influence upon the des-
tinies of humanity, is made to work in many sev-
eral ways, despite bis affected ignorance of articu-
late language. His prudent science avails him
nought in the domain of the White Elephant; and
there are-at least so we are assured by an old Austri-
an resident at the Siamese Court-few professions
which he may not be taught to practice with amaz-
ing skill and admirable precision. He is trained
to fish for crabs with his tail, as comical a pursuit
as can well be imagined, except, perhaps, for the
worthy and intelligent ape engaged in it, who some-
times gets a "bite" from a monster crab that he
is totally unable to land, and falls a victim to the
superior weight of his Cancer Ferox, who drags him
into the water, drowns, and finally devours him.


The Siamese ape is also stated to be in great request
among native merchants as a cashier in their count-
ing houses. Vast quantities of base coin obtain
circulation in Siam, and the faculty of discrimina-
tion between good money and bad would appear to
be possessed by these gifted monkeys in such an
extraordinary degree of development that no mere
human being, however carefully trained, can com-
pete with them. The cashier ape meditatively puts
into his mouth each coin presented to him in busi-
ness payments, and tests it with grave deliberation.
If it be genuine, he hands it over to his master. If
it be counterfeit, he sets it down on the counter be-
fore him with a solemn grimace of displeasure.
His method of testing is regarded in commercial
circles as infallible; and, as a matter of fact, his
decision is uniformly accepted by all parties inter.
ested In the transaction. But, though a true and
invaluable servant to his own particular master, it
seems that his moral character is not altogether ir-
reproachable. His deplorable passion for fruit
renders him the terror of Siamese market garden-
ers, who find brute force inadequate to restrain him
from visiting their orchards, and therefore have re-
course to divers and sundry stratagems, one of which
is reported to be as successful as it is certainly in-
genious. A specially active and enterprising ape is
captured and carefully sewed up in the skin of a
tiger-cat. He is then turned loose in the orchard
of his predilection, and straightway clambers, as
well as he may, incumbered by an unfamiliar gar-
ment, into the branches of a fruit tree among his
unclothed fellows. 'Scarcely do these latter set eyes
upon him, with all his feline terrors thick upon him,
when a dreadful panic strikes them, and they scram-
ble away with piercing screeches and agonized chat-
terings. Never more do they return to an orchard
which they believe to be infested by the deadliest
enemy of their race. The startling intelligence is
rapidly disseminated throughout the monkey society
of the neighborhood, and the wiley gardener enjoys
an absolute immunity from depredation forever al-
terward, for the very thought of a tiger-cat appalls
the simian soul, and doubtless the tale ol the aw-
ful apparition in Ting-tse's orchard" is handed
down in quadrumanous families from generation to

OFFICIAL DESPATCH FROM THE SEAT
OF WAR.
(London Gazette, "'!,rch5.)

(Enclosure A A.)
Active, off Natal, Jan. 30, 1879.
My LoRD,-1 have the honor to forward here-
with a copy of the official report from Commander
Campbell, Naval Brigade, of the action on 22na in-
sta t for your information.
I have, &c.,
(Signed) F. W. SULLIVAN, Commodore.
Lieut. General the Lord Chelmsford, K.C.B.,
Commanding Forces.
Naval Brigade, Ekowe, Jan. 24, 1879.
Sir,-I have to acquaint you with the distribu-
tion of the Naval Brigade at this moment.
A and B Companies Active, encamped here with
First Division of No. 1 Column, also Gatling gun
and crew, also rockets and their crews, also Royal
Marines.
The above march in First Division First Column,
A and B Companies, in front with rockets, Marines
and Galling in rear, while marching three to four
miles separated the front and rear ot First Division,
the interval being filled with wagons and other
troops.
Sub.-Lieutenant Heugb, with two 7-pounder
guns and their crews are attached to the rear of the
Second Division of No. 1 Column; they are here,
but occupy a different position.
The men of Tenedos, except one who is attached
to the Active's men, are stationed at Lower Tugela.
Staff Surgeon Norbury is principal Medical Offi-
cer of the Column, and with Surgeon Thompson,
one sick berth steward, one attendant, and one
marine servant, are attached to the Field Hospital;
the sick of the Naval Brigade are treated by them,
as well as, I believe, the greater part of the First
Division of the Column ; they are encamped here.
22nd, 5 a.m., marched. After passing five miles
along a fertile valley the path turns suddenly to the
left, and the ascent of the high land on which Eko-
wxe is situated commences, the head of the column
reached this turning, and was preparing to halt for
breakfast when it was suddenly attacked along the
entire right flank and on both fronts by the enemy,
who had evidently been lying concealed in the
bushes; they boldly advanced to within 150 yards
in extended order, rushing from bush to bush and
firing with great rapidity. Two 7-pr. Royal Artil-
lery and two 24-pr. Naval Brigade rockets were
placed on a knoll at the foot of the pass, but com-
manding the valley from which the flank attack
was proceeding. These, supported by two compa-
nies of the Buffs and A and B Companies of Naval
Brigade, opened a heavy fire on the enemy, checking
their advance. This knoll continued to be the
head-quarters of the column during the engagement.
From head-quarters to the head of the Pass, the
road or path to Ekowe leads along the top of a low
ridge for about a mile; this ridge is commanded on
both sides by two higher ridges running parallel to
it, and distant 800 to 1000 yards.
On these high ridges the enemy were posted in
large numbers, they also occupied a position B, 300
yards from head-quarters on the same ridge, and
had commenced to open fire from this latter post,
when a well directed rocket from the Naval Brigade
was driven right through the Kraal B, instantly
expelling the enemy.
Having been instructed to defend this part of the
position, I advanced A and a part of B Companies
of the Active's men in skirmishing order along the
ridge above described, leaving the remainder of B
Company with the rockets, to assist in protecting
the head-quarter position, which throughout the
day was exposed to an irritating fire from the
bushes on the side of a mountain opposite, as well
as from the enemy in the plain, the Colonel com-
inanding having already had a horse killed under
him.
7. My attention was now wholly directed to the
advance along the ridge (see sec. 6, par. 1.) along
the top of which runs the track to Ekowe. Not.
withstanding the heavy fire directed against our
small party from front and both flanks, steady pro-
gress was made, and the enemy driven back step by
step for about three-quarters of a mile, when he
posted his troops for a final stand in a strong posi-
tion perpendicular to the road parallel to which the
Naval Brigade were slowly advancing. By this
time four men of the Naval Brigade had been sent
to the rear badly wounded, and another temporarily
stunned by bullet passing through hishelmet, when
the arrival of a company of Buffs, under Colonel
Parnell, enabled the attack very rapidly to be push-
ed to within 100 yards of the Zulu position. A
final rush was then made, headed by the Naval
Brigade, and the position carried by assault. The
first unmounted man in the enemy's position was
Thomas Harding, ordinary, of H. M. S. Active,
closely followed by the remainder of A Company
under Lieut. Hamilton.
Two other hills were carried as soon as the men
had recovered breath, thus breaking through and
driving back the right horn of the Zula army, dis-
persing it in all directions, and clearing the road to
Ekowe, along which the column shortly after ad-
vanced without molestation, camping for the night
five miles south of that place.
The action lasted nearly three hours, and result-
ed in the enemy being driven back on all sides,
with a loss of 300 dead; only one wounded Zulu


was found on the field, so it is to be presumed the
wounded were removed by their companions.
The loss of Europeans in the engagement was
eight killed and sixteen wounded, one of whom has
since died; out of the killed six were officers or
non-commissioned officers of the Native Contin-
gent; these men fought, as far as came under my
notice, with great bravery, being, of course, unsup-
ported by their men, one out of ten of whom only
have firearms, while the Zulus appear all to be
possessed of them.
I enclose the reports of Lieutenant Dowding,
commanding Royal Marine Light Infantry, and
Midshipman Coker, in charge of the Gatling, both
of whom were placed so far in rear that I had no
opportunity of observing their movements.
It is with the greatest gratification I report the
splendid behaviour of the Naval Brigade in action of
22d instant; all were remarkably steady under fire;
those employed on the ridge were exposed to a cross
fire for nearly tw.o hours, after which they responded
to my call for the final assault with alacrity, and
led the rush till success was secured.
I particularly recommend Lieutenant Hamilton,
whose company was in front during the action.
Sub-Lieutenant Fraser also did good service in
command of the reserve, being under fire the whole
time.
Boatswain Cotter was most successful with the
rockets I placed in his charge.
Lieutenant Cragie, Gunnery Lieutenant, render-
ed valuable service as Acting Adjutant.
Ekowe, was reached early on the 23rd, and the
head-quarters are expected to remain for eight or
ten days before any further advance is made.
Two hundred men marched in the direction of
the Tugela this morning, and four hundred more
leave to-morrow, to escort convoys; reports have
ieacbhd that attacks have been made on these. .
The force 1 l'. beaten by the 1st Division of the
Column are s iid to be assembled in the bush at Um-
latco River, there to attack us on advancing. It
seem-s probable that they will not be dispersed with-
out some loss on our side. The Zulus seem adepts
at skirmishing, always in extended order; they
rush from one bush to another, delivering their fire,
- t-. +I,,," 1.. n .:_ -, .^_n_ 1^011 T3ft Pon n~ao M


a good marksman to bring them down. Nothing
like the masses of men spoken of as composing their
armies has been seen, and they show no disposition
to meet us in the open, but confine themselves to
taking us at a disadvantage, as on the 22nd inst.
The enemy have unfortunately carried off the six
Martini.Henry rifles and ammunition of the Euro.
peans of the Native Contingent killed; doubtless
these will be used against us with effect in next
action.
I trust my proceedings may meet your approval.
I have, &c., (Signed)
H. FLETCHER CAMPBELL,
Commanding Naval Brigade.
