KILLING WOUNDED ZULUS. The following is an extract from a letter by a private soldier, graphically describing the battle of Gingilhovo 11 We could not get the native contingent out for some time, but when they did get out they killed the wounded properly' with their assegais, sticking them into their stomachs and turning them round like 1 have seen you, dear mother, cut tho crnst out of a steak pudding. This is war carried on by a pre-eminently Christian nation ostensibly seeking to evangelise the poor bemgbtcd Zvilus other saveR of South Africa "When a cry tf horjlbr echoed through the country at the inhuman butcheries of the Bashi Bazouks. it was said that the Turkish. Government had not the control over tl eir irregular troops which they should have had. What can we say of them now ? Let him that is without sin first cast the stone." It is no real excuse for us to say they were irregular troops—we have no right to employ them if we cannot have a decent control over their conduct. There are plenty of our own soldiers to carry on a little war like this-in fact, Sir Garnet Wolseley thought there were too many of them at the seat of war, for he has sent some of them home.
