THE THREE WELSHMEN AT ROBKE'S DRIFT. The coat of arms of one of the most noble and distinguished of our Welsh families in the neigh. bourhood of Cardiff bears the following, Fea? him who fears not death." And one may weJ! fear in modern times, as our ancestors did in days of old, men who despise death, who fear not death. The Zulu has shown inconteatibly that he is one of that clasn, that he has no fear of death. Unshaken by the roar of artillery, un. moved by the Epcctacle of the dsad and dying en every aide, they advance aa coolly as on parade, and as fearlessly aa if the death-dealing rifba were 80 many bean-stioks. Yet even aa our wonder is aroused at the display of Buoh bravery, what shall we not say for the heroism exhibited by our own men, who, as shown by the spirited despatch of Lieutenant Chard from Borke's Drift, displayed during twelve long hours of attack by these unf earing Zulas, the utmost endurance, heroism, and gallantry. The last to leave the burning hospital, fighting hand to hand, foot to foot, were four men of whose nationality there can be no doubt. They were Williams, Hook, Jones, and Jones. All, honour to Hook, sturdy West countryman, as he was; and all honour to the undisguised Welsh- men, the brave Williams, and the two noble Jonesee. Well may we pray that, surviving Cape Coast fever, swamp malaria, and assegai of Zulu, our three countrymen may be permitted in due time to revisit their native valleys, to tell us :n their own languaee of the horrors of those twelve .hours' battle with the savage, and to ahow on their own person the substantial indica- tions of a nation's pride, and gratitude for the valiant of her eons.
