THE ZULU MASSACRE AND OUR WELSH SOLDIERS. The friends of a private in the ill-fated 24th Regiment bring the following communication under our noticeDirectly after the news of the battle of Isandula was received they deputed a relation in London to make enquiries at the War Office, and the result of these inquiries was the very unsatisfactory information that no authentio list of the dead had come to hand, nor was such a list expectod for a long time. Indeed, added the official, it is probable that we shall I have no trustworthy roll of dead and missing before May. So you had better keop on writing until you hear one way or the other! This information, we need not state, was utterly unsatisfactory; and as it appeared to the relatives in Wales so doubtful, so unworthy the arrangements of a great country, a message direct was sent to the War Office. We insert the reply. It will be seen that it ia vague in the extreme, but slightly better than the former reply. No authentic lists of killed and wounded have yet been received. Application may be renewed in a fortnight. War Offioe, 8-3-79." This gives theI slight oongolation that no list yet published is trustworthy. So mourners may yet hope that their friends may turn up wounded or even sound, and thia hope cannot be abandoned until the publication of the official roll. But we submit that the Government would do well to get rid, as far as possible, ai, red. tapeism in snoh dire emergencies as the present, and imitate the enterprise and rapidity of the daily press. Hope deferred," says the old copy book mentor, "maketh the heart siok." Oar eons give their valour, their lives, freely, and without a murmur. Surely it would not be too much to expect that the fullest liberty and despatch should be given to the annalists who record their renown or chronicle their fate.
