v SOUTH AFRICAN AFFAIRS. Sir Garnet Y olseley telegraphed to the Foreign 1 Office as follows Uktndi, August :2D. Cetewayo was captured yesterday in the heart of Ygome forest by a patrol under the command of Major Marter, Kind's Dragoon Guards. Utebula has submitted, and is in my camp. All the important Zulu chfs have now made their submissions. I shall hold a meeting of the great chiefs on the 1st or 2nd September, when I shall an- nounce the division of Zululand and the names of the chiefs who are to hold independent chieftainships in the several districts, and these will then sign the terms on which they agree to hold their chieftainship. I hope to leave this on the 15th September for the Transvaal, when all the troops will be withdrawn from Zululand with the exception of a small column engaged in the pacification of the country to the north-west, where the semi-independent chiefs of Maclusi district have not yet submitted. I have two officials of the Natal Government to represent the British powerâone in the north and one in the south of Zululand. They will have no executive or administrative functions, but will be the eyes and ears of the Government. They will have temporarily a small body-guard of Natal natives. Health of troops good." A most satisfactory meeting of chiefs was held on September 1st, when six, including the chief John Dunn, signed the terms which had been prepared. The six other chiefs selected for territories were absent, having mistaken the day for the meeting. Sir Garnet Wolseley has asked Sir Bartle Frere whether the Cape Government will provide for the rastody of Cetewayo as a State prisoner. The Ministry, ifter a consideration of the matter and regarding the late King's detention as indispensable to the main- tenance of peace in South Africa, have agreed to pro- vide a suitable place for him at Capetown, pending the pleasure of her Majesty as to his future disoosal.
