SURRENDER OF CETYWAYO'S YOUNGEST BROTHER. One of the Correspondents of The Tima, writing from Ginghilova on April 23, says:- On the morning of the 21st Inst. Mugwende, Cetywayo's youngest brother, came in, aooompanlea by his wives and some 20 followers. He had been In treaty with the acting Brigadier for some days previously, and It was anticipated that he would have surrendered, with a larger number of his men. His desertion of his brother's cause is not considered of any political significance, as his disaffection had been well known so much so, that two of the Ungoya chiefs had re- ceived orders from the King to watch his brother's move- ments, and so well had they done their duty that, accord- ing to Mugwende's statement, the greater number of his party as well as all his cattle had been cut off and he him. self had been barely able to escape with the small number who accompanied him. He says that no Zulu force of any considerable size Is anywhere collected which would be capable of opposing a general advance; that since the double victories of Kambula and Ginghilova the Zulus have been completely disorganised and have dispersed to their dif- ferent kraals. He concluded his statement, however, by saying that If time and opportunity are only afforded them the Zulu army will again be mobilised and a vigorous resistance may be then expected, on our side of the country particularly In the Umthaluzt bush. "In appearance Mugwende Is a low, cunning-looking savage, with a forbidding look about his eyes. He has a tendency to elephantlasia, caused by his weakness for native beer, which It is said he indulges In to excess. His wives are conspicuous rather by the scanty naturu of their costume- viz., a string of fine beads round the loial- than by beauty of person. Their hair is shaved close, except a round patch on the crown of the head, where the hair is gathered into a sort of oone and plastered with red clay. The dignity and self-possession shown by the whole party, male and female, struck all the numerous onlookers as the most remarkable feature of a very Interacting scene. Mugwende and bis lollowerm have been forwarded into Natal by the convoy of empty waggons which left here for Tugela yester- day."
