A HORRIBLE CUSTOM. Matabeles Mutilate Their Slain in a Fearful Manner. The Daily News Fort Salisbury correspondent, belegraphing on Tuesday afternoon, gives addi- tional particulars of the fighting on the 27th lit. :-The Makalaka auxiliaries appear to have suffered the heaviest of the Chartered Company's native allies during the series of desperate tttacks on the laager. Over 100 of this force rvere killed, and their bodies have since been round horribly mutilated. Not only wajr the isual Zulu custom of ripping open the stomachs )f the slain adopted by Lobengula's hordes, but ;he heads of the fallen Makalaka were smashed n and rendered unrecognisable. The dispatch 1 joes on to say, however, that since the Mata- )ele were put to flight, on October 27, I ;heir attacks on the whites have been of a rery half-hearted character and in compare lively small numbers. It is inferred from thib )y those in command at Buluwayo that contin- gents had been detached by Lobengula from ;he several impis to concentrate for a final stand. Although the company's forces are not -eported to have sustained any losses, the \la.tn hele have been successful in re-capturing a jonsiderable number of cattle. This news is lot at all relished here. No further tidings lave been obtained of the missing Captain Williams. Your representative, however, nentions that hope is still expressed that the )lood trail that was discovered may prove to be 'rom the wounded horse, and that Captain Williams may have made his way to some 'riendly quarter. The news respecting Major Forbes's force is most encouraging. Runners lave come in with brief particulars of a sharp, )ut decisive, encounter between Forbes's men md a large body of Matabele, the latter being inally driven off with serious loss.
