The anthem was, "Now are we Ambassadors." His lord- ship has left Bangor for Whitby, and will be absent from the diocese for three weeks. ON SUNDAY, September 28th, the Ven. Archdeacon Ffoulkes will commence his duties at Whittington, as the rector, in succession to the Bishop of Bedford.

The Queen and Princess Beatrice, attended by the ladies and gentlemen of the Court, are expected to reside at Balmoral till November, returning in that month to Windsor Castle. Earl and Countess of Dufferin left London .on Tues- day for Paris, on their return to St. Petersburg. Mr. Morgan Lloyd, M.P., was married on Saturday, to Mrs. Lloyd Price, widow of the late Lloyd Price, of Akrmarlas Park, Carmarthenshire. A marriage is arranged to take place shortly between the Hon. Hamilton James Tollemache, fourth son of Lord Tollemache, and Miss Mabel Hanbury, daughter of Mr. Robert William Hanbury, M.P. for Middlesex. The Hon. H. J. Tollemache entered the 68th Light Infantry, and was stationed for a time in Ireland, from whence he proceeded to India. After service there for five years he came home, sold his commission, and studied for the bar. He was called to the bar last spring, and became attached to the Chancery division.
THE GOVERNMENT AND THE COUNTRY.—The Press Association understands that her Majesty's Government is seriously contemplating the advisability of calling both Houses of Parliament together early in November in order to consult them with regard to the fresh out- break of hostilities in Afghanistan. No definite arrange- ment has yet been arrived at, as the Cabinet have not yet been collectively consulted, but the probabilities are now strongly in favour of a November session. MANCHESTER.—Mr. Slagg, the second Liberal candi- date for Manchester, has consented to vote, if elected, for the Home Rule inquiry, and to support the Irish party generally on the same lines as Mr. Jacob Bright. WEST CHESHIRE.—Active steps are being taken by the Liberal party to contest the West Division of Cheshire at the next general election. The names of two county gentlemen have been prominently brought forward as possible candidates, but on this point nothing can be known until the delegate meeting, which it is proposed should take place early in October.
IRON AND COAL. I BARROW-IN-FURNESS, Monday.—There was a limited attendance of buyers and sellers on the Barrow Exchange this morning, but it was reported from all sources that a slight improvement is noticeable, and that all round there are indications of an upward tendency. The output of iron is larger than of late, but it is all going into delivery either on home or foreign account, and makers are also able from time to time to reduce the stocks they hold. Prices are firm, and they are to some extent advancing. No 1. Bessemer sells at 52s. 6d. per ton, and forge qualities fetch 48s. at maker's works. Steel mills are in full work, and the output is very large. A great proportion of work being done is on foreign account. Iron ore and coal are in better demand. MIDDLESBOROUGH, Tuesday.—The steady advance which has hitherto marked th,e pig iron prices here has given place to a wild rush upwards, and it was im- possible to-day to say what were the real prices. Quota- tions were 2s. per ton above last week. For No. 3, immediately delivery, 38s. nett was generally asked at close of market, though 37s. had been accepted earlier in the morning. Over first three months of next year, 40s. was offered for No. 3 and refused. The advance is not looked upon as genuine, but is due to speculation, and a rapid fall is expected. This keeps genuine buyers from operating. Connal's stocks are up to 83,000 tons to-day—1,500 tons increase on last Tuesday. Manufac- tured iron is dearer, but producers are loathe to quote as there is so much uncertainty about pig iron prices. WOLVERHAMPTON, Wednesday.—The pig iron firms were reluctant to take orders this afternoon most of them have sold well forward. To check buying, one house quoted the prohibitory rise of 10s. Common bars maintained their rise of 5s. marked bars are unal- tered at The business in these and in best plates is quiet. Galvanised sheets upheld their advance of 30s. Private cable messages show sales at Sydney at that advance. Smelters' quotations for spelter were a rise of 5s., but weak speculators offered at' less. Coal was strong but plentiful.
AGRICULTURE. AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION. In continuing this subject from last week, I now pro- pose to give a summary of the subjects upon which questions are asked at the examinations on the principles of agriculture under the scheme of the Science and Art Department of the Government. These particulars will enable anyone to gather a general idea of what agricultural science is, its scope, and also the miscel- laneous branches that are comprised in it. This sum- mary will, moreover, serve as a guide for private study for those in rural districts who are wishful to make progress in agricultural knowledge, and who may not have the opportunity of attending classes to receive systematic tuition. Summary of subjects in elementary stage:— Soils their different kinds variations in composi- tion, texture, and condition substance found in plants; exhaustion of the land, differences between good and poor land, necessity for manure, uses of farm-yard manure and artificial manures; lime, marl, and chalk as manures. Tillage operations changes produced in the soil and influence on growth of crops drainage of land, its necessity, and its results. Crops grown on various kinds of soils regulations in the rotation of crops; good and indifferent courses of cropping. Live stock best kinds of stock for different farms the economy of good stock management; the require- ments for making good dairy farms, good sheep farms, or good grazing lands. Food the chemical matters found in various kinds of food, in milk, green food, hay, corn, and other pro- duce the different materials necessary for the growth of animals, and process of fattening them. Subjects of advanced stage:— Classification of soils: chemical and physical con- ditions regulating the barrenness and fertility of soils essential differences in the cultivation of light and heavy soils; influence of climate on the productive powers of the soil. Conditions regulating the production, management, and application of farm-yard manures: conditions regulating the use of artificial manures the different action of bones, lime, phosphates, and salt as fertilisers special action of manures upon the corn crops, roots, and grass. Adulteration of manures combination of manures of different kinds, manures which impoverish the land. Conditions regulating the selection and rotation of crops chemical composition of different crops chemical changes in the ripening of grain, roots, and fodder crops; influence of climate on the growth. Combined influence of soil and climate upon systems of husbandry upon the nutritive quality of the flour of wheat and oats the feeding power of roots and various kinds of straw. Conditions regulating the vital power of seeds, their character and quality why change of seed is necessary adulteration of seeds. Principles regulating the breeding of stock the in- fluence of pedigree, good and bad qualities, results of different systems of breeding, special aptitude of various breeds for different kinds of soil and climate the principles regulating special peculiarities of stock, such as early maturity, rapid production of flesh and fat, growth of wool, and production of milk; influence of food and exercise upon the yield of butter and cheese peculiar influence of irrigated or sewage grass upon dairy produce influence on sheep as regards breed, climate, soil, food, and shelter, and the character of wool. Constituents of various kinds of food and proper classification advantages of purchasing food as a means of enriching a farm good and bad systems of feeding stock. The malting qualties of barley and its use as a feed- ing material: relative value of natural and artificial grasses; conditions regulating the fertility of grass land principles upon which hay-making should be conducted in order to preserve feeding properties. Drainage of land, its influence on the soil and sub- soil irrigation, value of different modes; relative qualities of raw and clarified sewage the use of sewage as a manure and the quality of crops produced by it. Orchards and fruit grounds: influence of soil and climate on the growth of fruit; woodland plantations; conditions for growing luxuriant timber and underwood. Diseased condition of different crops the results of bunt or smut-ball mildew and blight on corn crops finger-and-toe clubbing, and curl in root-crops and cabbages potatoe disease canker in fruit-trees. Farm buildings systems of arrangement and general plan of construction according to description of farm, and the peculiarities of the district. Respecting the examinations for "Honours" in the principles of agriculture, the questions are formed on the basis of those subjects named in the advanced course, as given above, with ample opportunity for candidates to show special excellence in any particular subjects they may have studied. The particulars now supplied will give a fairly accurate idea of the comprehensive nature of the subjects included in agricultural science. There are, as we know, no men so well qualified to make agriculture progressive and profitable as those who are able to unite .science with practice in all farming operations. Hence it is most desirable that all engaged in the practice of most desirable that all engaged in the practice of agriculture should have an intelligent grasp of the sciences bearing on the subject. Such a combination of knowledge enables farmers to become keener and more accurate observers, and so places them in a better position for developing agriculture fully and effectively. In the extension of this movement for promoting agricultural education; the country is much indebted to the energetic and encouraging work of the Central Chamber of Agriculture in London which is very watch- ful over the interests' of agriculture. The exertions of this chamber in helping forward this valuable scheme, and in stimulating the local chambers of agriculture in union with it, has earned for itself the gratitude of all earnest agriculturists in the kingdom. As an indication of the progress which has been made in advancing agricultural science, it may be mentioned in regard to the number of students in agriculture (youths and adults) at the May examinations in 1876 (the year in which the scheme was first introduced) that there were 155 candidates; in 1877 there were 800; in 1878 about 1,200 and last May there were over 1,500. Of this number it is estimated that four-fifths of the candidates were from Scotland and Ireland, and the remaining one-fifth from England and Wales. These figures are suggestive of the way in which the Govern- ment scheme is taken advantage of in the several parts of the United Kingdom. Let us hope then that the friends of Agriculture in North Wales will not hesitate to adopt such an accept- able system, for it is worthy of all the help and encour- rgement that can be given to it. At any rate, now that an interest has been awakened in this matter in those counties wherein this paper so largely circulates, we shall doubtless hear of the scheme being actively pro- moted in order that its advantages may be shared in bf our own districts. FFEmr. 20th September, 1879. The wheat crop in the Argentine Republic is reported to be "t;plendic1." I HE CORN TRADE.—The JldarJc Lane Express says — W ith the exception of a few days sunshine at the beginning ot the week, the weather has been dull and gloomy, with a close damp atmosphere, which has told unfavourably on the condition of new wheat, but without impeding harvesting to any serious extent. Although we have arrived at the third week in September, scarcely any English wheat of this season's crop has been offered for sale, but it is to be feared that the variable quality of that which has appeared represents that too well the general condition of this year's produce. It must be admitted that this year's yield is by far the worst since 1876. The upward move in prices anti- cipated a fortnight ago has made a fair start in the advance of 2s. per quarter, which has been well main- tained throughout the week. Flour has necessarily shared in the advance to the extent of Is. per sack, and barrol feeding stuffs also have been held with increasing firmness. The Americans have fully realised their true positions as custodians of a large proportion of the old world's supplies, wheat has advanced 6 cents, per bushel in New York. THE HARVEST.—Mr. J. J. Mechi, in a letter to the Times, says The thrashing and dressing machines are now revealing the sorrowful fact that the deficiency in our^corn crops, especially on heavy land, and even on well-farmed land, is greater than was anticipated, veri- fying Mr. Caird's and Mr. Scott's estimates of 30 per cent. under average. We all expected a better result, from the abundance of straw and numerous heads but the latter are ill-filled with very inferior shrunken kernels, and the straw, although bulky, lacks weight, and has a dark mildewy colour. Water-living weeds have had undisturbed possession among the corn crops, for their destruction was rendered impossible by the constantly saturated condition of the soil. Root crops are late, and only half a crop; potatoes much diseased. There hD..s been heavy loss by death of lambs, and cattle have cione badly on unripened, watery grasses. In fact, the absence of sunshine, a low temperature, and excess of rain, have prevented healthy development both in farm crops and in fruit. There is a great vacation of farms, and the local papers are filled with notices of farm stock sales and of farms to be let or sold." From Nenagh,' county Tipperary, we learn that most of the corn crops are cut and safe, the fine weather of last week doing wonders. Oats and barley are both heavy crops in straw and grain. Potatoes are failing. Turnips are backward. Hay is selling from 30s. to 35s. per ton. Barley opened at 20s. per barrel. The greatest loss will be the want of turf. SALE OF THE PIPE PLACE SHROPSHIRE FLOCK.—The sale of the noted Shropshire flock of the late Mr. J. H. Bradburne, conducted on Saturday at Pipe Place near Lichfield by Messrs. Lythall and Manseil, auctioneers, attracted a large attendance. The flock comprised 50 grand shearling and other rams, 250 shearling and stock ewes, and 200 splendid ram, ewe, and wether lambs. Founded upwards of thirty years ago the Pipe Place flock is known to possess some of the best and most fashionable blood in the kingdom. Sires of great value have been periodically selected, including many R.A.S.E., prize sheep from eminent breeders. The shearlings were mostly sired by the celebrated rams "Lord Aston," winner of first prize, Birmingham, R.AS.E., and "The Clinker," from Mr. R. H. Masfen's flock. The five beautiful R.A.S.E. show theaves, sires" Clinker" and" Dignity," were bought at 7 guineas each by Mr. Darling. The shearling ewes sold at from 5 guineas to 55s. the stock ewes from 110s. to 65s. The first shearling ram, sire "Clinker," realised 30 guineas, being purchased by Mr. Cooper. The remaining prices worthy of note in this class were 18 guineas given by Mr. Keeling, 14 guineas Mr. Gibson, 12 guineas Jvlr. Stretton, and 10 guineas Mr. Ashmole. The old rams brought 17, 8, and 51 guineas, while the ram lambs realised from 105s to 42s.; the ewe lambs from 3 guineas to 35s. and the wether lambs 38s., the representative of the Baroness Roths- child being amongst the purchasers.
THE TRADE IN NORTH WALES. The correspondent of the J fining World writes :— Duiirtg the past week or two there has been a steady and increasing demand for coal, and producers and those connected with the coal trade generally anticipating an advance of a shilling or eighteenpence per ton before the close of the year. It is not likely that such an advance will bring about any unreasonable demand on the part of workmen for experience of the loner period of depression has implanted in their minds a lesson not easily forgotten, and, further, combined circumstances have rendered labour so plentiful that prices will bear expansion before any advance in the present scale of wages or limitation of the working hours become a necessity. The remarks I made in a previous letter in reference to the exorbitant dead rents demanded by landlords in this district seem to have created quite a stir, and I have noticed several important speeches made in the neighbourhood bearing upon the subject. The outcome it is, of course, difficult to prognosticate, but I think it is the duty of all colliery owners to keep the matter fresh in the minds of landlords, and endeavour to obtain some recognition, where operations have been energetically conducted through years of deDression. notwithstanding the loss that has from time to time been the only result. Surely these persevering capitalists deserve better at the handsofthose who pocket their rent without thought or consideration of the cost at which it has been obtained. The statement made in reference to the Oak Pit Colliery, and the discharge of a large number of hands is not at all surprising, for it is a well known fact that operations have been conducted at a loss for mouths past. The position of the colliery is favourable for railway sales, but many difficulties were encountered in its development, the cost for timber to support the roof being especially great. Comment is hardly necessary upon the other undertakings of the Mold district; trade is quiet, and at some places quota- tions per rail simply ridiculous. There has been, as I expected, a continued advance in the quotations for lead and blende, and the expectation is justified that figures will be maitained, if not strengthened. I hear of a good discovery at Bodidris, and that the first parcel of lead will be sold in about a. month's time, also that a company has been formed to more energetically work the East Pant Du mines. At Denbighshire operations have been much retarded by the recent floods, but the workings are now in order, and we should hear in a short time of plenty of lead being raised from the discovery at the 66. The first blocks of lead obtained were very fine. At Gwernmy- nydd good progress is being made with the new shaft, and at the Fronfawnog portion of the property, indi- cations of a valuable flat or body of lead have been met with. At North Hendre the produce is satisfactory and the mine continues to open out well. Prince Patrick appeared again at the last monthly ticketing, and a fair quantity of stuff can now be returned. Rapid progress with the Halkin tunnel continues, but no further great body of water has yet been tapped. Rhosesmor shares are still inquired for in the neighbourhood, and the mine with Penyrorsedd when drained will take a prominent position in the future. I am glad to say dressing operations at Great Holwav are in force the blende is of splendid quality, and at the sublets good returns continue to be made. As soon as the various levels are effectually drained, we may look for large and increasing returns here. The progress at West Holway is satisfactory the vein has been intersected in the shaft, and with the funds in hand to carry on the development works, the spirited proprietors should have speedy returns. THE IRON TRADE AT CARDIFF.—Fifty coke ovens that have been idle four years are to be relighted at Abersychan, near Cardiff. An additional blast furnace has also been relighted.

The works are not fully completed, a fountain having to be added. SCENE AT A WEDDING.—On Sunday morning two persons named William Chadwick and Catherine Sullivan, attended at St. Edmund's Church, Dudley, for the purpose of getting married. As the ceremony was about to take place, some friends made an objection to the wedding proceeding, as the bride was a married woman. The Clergyman refused to proceed, and upon the bride and bridegroom arriving in the street, they assaulted their friends, and a general fight followed. CO-OPERATIVE TRADING.—A conference of traders was held at Exeter Hall on Wedesday, to discuss ques- tions connected with the effect of co-operative stores on their businesses.

SHOCKING NEGLECT OF A CHILD.—A shocking case of neglect of a child on the part of its father came before the Leeds stipendiary magistrate on Monday. George Ramsden, one of the oldest news agents in the town, and a man of considerable means, was convicted of having left his little girl, aged eight, locked up in a house alone for twelve days without food. When the house was visited by the police it was found in a beastly state of filth, and the child was a mass of vermin and sores. The unnatural father was sent to prison for six months. ] A SUR»EON SENTENCED TO PENAL SERVITUDE. ] Francis James Hammond, 41, surgeon, was indicted at the Central Criminal Court on Tuesday, for feloniously j assaulting Ellen Saunders, and causing her bodily injury, with an unlawful intent. The prosecution was con- ] ducted for the Treasury by Mr. Montagu Williams and Mr. Gill, and the prisoner was defended by Mr. Beslev, j Mr. Grain, and Mr. Tickell. The evidence was chiefly. that of Ellen Saunders and her friend Amy Phillips. j The prisoner-was a married man with a family, and had a good practice. The jury found him guilty, and he was sentenced by Mr. Justice Lopes to ten years' penal servitude. THE TRANMERE BABY-FARMING CASE.—This case has now assumed a very serious aspect, and further revela- tions of a still more shocking nature may be looked for. The adjourned inquest on the bodies of the two infants known as Mabel and Alice took place on Wednesday, and very extraordinary evidence was given. In one I. case, a young lady from Hereford stated that she gave the female prisoner £ 30 to take charge of illegitimate infant for life," and that at the time it was in perfect health. A young man from Wigan, in another case, I, gave jElO on account of E13 for the maintenance of an infant. The jury returned a verdict of wilful murder against both prisoners. "PLAYING AT ZULUS."—Two boys were fined 10s. each at Worship-street Police Court, London, on Tuesday, for throwing stones. The two prisoners were at the head of a number of boys belonging to rival schools, who 1 were in the nightly habit of amusing themselves and disturbing the neighbourhood by playing at Zulus and English," a game requiring them, apparently, to arm themselves with sticks and stones. A similar game in another district resulted in the ringleader being fined 20s. at the Marlborough-street Police Court.—Last week, at Sittingborne, two lads were "playing at Zulus" in a hop garden, using hop-poles for assegais, when one of them accidentally thrust his companion's eye out with the end of a pole. DREADFUL ACCIDENTS.—John Hughes, in the service of Mr. T. Cowburn, plumber and glazier, of Newton Heath, Manchester, met with a terrible accident on Saturday, Hughes had been sent to make some repairs and alterations in the gas piping and fixtures of the Newton Heath tanyard, and was engaged in a certain part of the premises containing a boiler let into the ground and level with the floor, and full of a greasy and vitriolic liquid kept always boiling for taming purposes. Hughes, who was at work on a scaffolding placed immediately over the boiling liquid, somehow or other lost his balance and fell from the scaffolding into the seething cauldron. Fortunately, however, the poor man fell feet foremost and sank only up to his waist. A number of the tanyard workmen immediately drew him out of the boiler. On taking off his trousers and waist- coat large pieces of skin and flesh adhered to those gar- coat large pieces of skin and flesh adhered to those gar- ments, leaving the poor man in a ghastly state. He now lies in the Manchester Infirmary in a very pre- carious condition.—At Southampton, on Wednesday, a little girl, named Bartlett, was leaving school, when on suddenly crossing the road she was knocked down by a passing baker's cart, and the horse treading upon her ¡ head killed her on the spot. EDUCATION IN ENGLAND AND WALES. —The annual report of the committee of Council oij Education in England and Wales has just been issued. It states that in the year ending 31st August, 1878, the inspectors visited 16,293 elementary day schools, affording accommodation for 3,942,337 scholars. There were on the registers the names of 3,495,892 children, of whom 2,405,197 were in average daily attendance throughout the year. Of these 59S,313 being under seven years of age, were qualified to bring grants to their schools without individual examination. There were 1,562,224 actually presented for examination, and while 938,058 passed the prescribed test without failure in any one of the three subjects, 86-59 scholars out of every 100 examined passed in reading, 76-59 in writing, and 72-24 in arithmetic. These figures show a very considerable improvement on the last report, the number of scholars on the registers having increased by 340,919 and the average attendance by 254,514. The Government grants rose from 14s. 41d. to 15s. If. per scholar, while the grant for the currant 4 financial year is estimated at 15s. 9d. per head. The total amount granted in 1878 was £ 1,820,661. The night schools examined were 1718 in number. The average attendance was 56,501, and of these 48,669 were examined, 88-63 per cent. passing in reading, 70-32 in writing, and 58-77 in arithmetic. MEN DRESSING AS NVCIXEN.-AT the Central Criminal Court, on Monday, Henry Newman and Arthur Smith, two well-dressed young men, were indicted for having dressed themselves in women's clothes. Evidenoe was given to the effect that the persons were in the habit of going to a house in Wardour-street, Soho, London, dressed as women, and that their conduct was of such a nature as to cause great annoyance to the neighbours. Mr. Justice Bowen, in summing up, pointed out that the prisoners with conspiring to commit, er incite to the commission of, a scandalous offence, and then with acting in a manner that was a public nmsance. The case was one when first launched of dressing in women's clothes, but that was not a police offence, and it was to be regretted that so appearing in the public streets was not punishable without requiring a jury to say what the intention was, as it might be used for purpose of the grossest corruption or extortion. At the same time it might only be a prank. There was no knowing how far the folly of boys and young men would go but a line was to be drawn between folly and the offence which it simulated, and the jury would not take so evil a view of human nature as to assume that merely dressing in women's clothes betokened an evil desire or intent. The jury found the prisoners not guilty. MR. FORBES AND LIRGT. CAREY.—A somewhat turbulent scene occurred during a lecture on the Zulu war, delivered at the Shoreditch Town Hall, on Monday, by Mr. Archibald Forbes. In commencing his lecture, Mr. Forbes stated that he would introduce no subjects of a controversial character, and therefore he refrained criticising the action of Lord Chelmsford. When, however, he had described the death of the Prince Imperial, he stated that he would only speak' of binv-t men that evening, and therefore he must a k to bs excused from saying anything about Lieutenan.Cr.rer, This remark, winch was uttered with consi ijwabi'e emphasis, was received with some cheers, but afeiosi immediately a volley of biw?s w.is raised, nnd c. "l'es of \v ithdraw that statement," and Why did you Cnelmsford ? was heard above the din. The audit lice refused to allow NT. Forbes to proceed, and b -k-, cheers for Carey were calieclfor, amid evidentsvmpatb v. Mr. Holms, M.P. for Hackney, appealed for order, saying that he held his own opinion on the subject, but it was only fair to allow the lecturer to go on. This was sullenly agreed to by the discontents, but it was some time before the former enthusiasm of the meeting was recovered. Mr. Forbes, in delivering his lecture on Wednesday night at St. James's Hall, London, omitted the words he employed on Monday niirht in reference to Lieutenant Carey, "I shall speak only of brave men, and merely obsened.that it would not be right of him to express an opinion regarding that officer, or to imply Im responsibility for the criminal negligence which exposed Prince Louis Napoleon to the chance of such a fate. This remark was received with cheers from the large audience assembled. D
f orngn: JiiicJlrgmre. I RUSSIA. X ews has reached Simla that the advance column of the Russian expedition against the Tekke Turcomans has been defeated at Geok Tepe, with a loss of 700 men killed. The intelligence is stated to be official, and to have been confirmed by reports from two authentic sources. There is no mention made of the defeat in an official despatch published in St. Petersburg from General Lomakki, but in reporting the forward move- ments of the column, he states that rumours were current that the Turcomans were congregating at Geok Tepe to resist the onward march of the troops. This is the second reverse which the expedition has received at the hands of the Turcomans since it first set out under the command of the late General Lazareff. HUNGARY. On Friday week, the Jewish New Year, the floor of the synagogue in the village of Szolnok, near Munkacs, Hungary, gave way in consequence of oyercrowàing. The women fell into a bath underneath. Eighteen of them and one lad were killed, and eight women were seriously injured.
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 power—one 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.

A THE AFGHAN OUTBREAK. j A brief telegram from the Viceroy of India states ihat an attack was made by the Mongols near the Shutargardan on Monday. It was an attack CYI a small convoy of mules in charge of eleven Sepoys of the 5th Funjaub Infantry. The convoy was surprised at an Dut-of-the-way spot at the foot of the pass, and eight Sepoys and 1.5 mule-drivers were killed. The Mongols, who were in strong force, succeeded in carrying away some rifles, ammunition, and accoutrements. The Yiceroy roy also announces the arrival in the camp of General Lioberts of two envoys from the Ameer, who were sent From Cabul in accordance with the request made by General Roberts. They were the bearers of a letter, the terms of which are not yet made known. A rumour prevailed that the object of the mission was to persuade ihe Indian Government to abandon the idea of an idvance on Cabul. It is also omciallystated that satis- 'actory arrangements have been made with the tribes in j; Khybcr Pass. PLAN OF OPERATIONS. The official plan of operations in Afghanistan is now lefinitely settled. The occupation of Cabul having become a necessity, carriage is being supplied and measures taken to send and maintain troops, under the command of General Roberts, from the Khurum Valley to Cabul. A force is available for an advance to simul- taneously open communication between Peshawur and Cabul. General Gough is to command the moveable solumn in advance of J ellabad, and General Arbuthnot, C.B., the troops in the Khyber. To General Doran the command of the whole operation is entrusted, while General Bright will hold the supreme command from the Attock to Jugdaluk. The operation thus developed will represent an advanced division capable of meeting anything Afghanistan can bring into the field from Cabul. The communications will be assured, and the advancing column be ,supported from Peshawar. The troops in advance of the Kyber number fifteen thousand men.
