THE CAFFRE WAR.âBy the arrival of the Danube at Plymouth we have advices from Cape Town up to the 4th ult. Another attack had been made upon the colonial troops by the Galekas, which resulted in the thorough defeat of the latter. Some uneasiness prevails with regard to two other tribes, the Tembus and the Gaikas, although the former are said to be quiet enough at present, while the attitude of the latter has led to a demand by the colonists for a special session of Parliament and the raising of a body of volunteers. The British authorities have de- manded tbe surrender of Ereli. THE RUMOURED RETIREMENT OF CHARLES MATHEWS.âMr. Mathews has addressed the following letter to a contemporary: Having had occasion to 'rush into print' two or three times lately, I am afraid people will begin to think that I insert para- graphs in newspapers myself for the purpose of writing letters to editors, and. so obtaining advertise- ments gratis. But this is not the case, and as you do not give me the name of the 'contemporary' who declares that I «intend to withdraw from the stage at the end of the present year,' I must ask you to be kind enough to allow me to contradict the declaration through the paper in which lfirst saw it published. Ten years ago I had to contradict a similar report, and I hope ten years hence I may have to do it again. I can assure you I find there is no such hard work as idleness, and my favourite relaxation is acting, my rest locomotion. That this may be my last season is quite possible, but that I intend it to be so ia not the fact. My retirement, when it does take place, will be a necessity, not a choice, and I shall take with an ill grace to my armchair. In the first place, I am not of a retiring disposition, and next, I am too fond of my profession to relinquish it voluntarily. I have no wish to lag superfluous on the stage: but as long as I continue to be favoured with full houses, joyous audiences, and good health, I quite agree with you, that I couldn't- withdraw if I tried. SERIOUS ACCIDENT AT THE NEW LAW COURTS IN LONDON âA srrious ace dent occurred at the New Law Courts on Fridav. One of the chains used in hoisting up blocks or" stone snapped and fell upon a staircase at the south end of the eastern block. This was broken through and tha next staircase was destroyed.
