ZULULAND. England watches with a good deal of ieal0Usy the colonial expansion of other nations, yet she (remarks the Graphic) herself is continually adding to her vast Empire. No matter what may be the party to which it belongs, every Government carries on the game of annexation and we have all become so accustomed to the process that we are never much surprised to hear that some fresh territory has been taken. Within the last few days Zululand has been annexed. If the French or the Germans had suddenly declared themselves the masters of so important a country, what aa outcry would have been raised The acqui- sition being our own, it is regarded almost as a matter of course; and Sir Henry Holland when questioned about it in the House of Commons answers in an off-hand manner, as if he were talking about some petty detail of official duty. The subject may perhaps, be discussed when the Colonial vote is taken but no serious opposition is likely to be offered to the course the Government has adopted. The truth is Zululand ought to have been annexed long ago. Having broken up the political organisation of the Zulus, we practically abandoned them to their fate' and the inevitable consequence was that they quar- relled with one another, and much of their bestland was stolen by the Boers. If we had taken the country at once after we had conquered it, our rule would soon have been firmly established, and the Zulus would have become a comparatively orderly and pros- perous people. It is some comfort to know that we have now heard the last of Boer aggression in Zulu- land, and we may hope that in other respects the new subjects of the Queen will have no reason to regret the loss of their national independence.
