EATEN BY CANNIBALS. ( FATE OF SEVEN MISSIONARIES. The killing and eating of seven native mis- sionaries by cannibals, wires the Sydney correspondent of the Daily Telegraph. is the latest horror added to the grim record of the New Hebrides, which were recently visited by a serious volcanic eruption. The island steamer Makambo, which arrived at Sydney on Saturday, brought news of unrest among the natives of Malekula and II other islands, culminating in a cannibalistic feast. A revolting murder was perpetrated by the tribe known as the "Big Aambus, occu- pying the northern portion of Malekula Island. The nearest mission station to Male- kula is on the island Walla, eight miles dis- tant. Early in the present month nine mis- sionaries from Walla station, which is under the auspices of the Presbyterian Church, went to preach at a native village on Male- kula Island. On arriving at a second village they were surrounded by a host of armed natives, who hemmed tlw missionaries in on every side, uttering weird war cries. At a given signal shots were fired, and six of the missionaries fell dead, and were afterwards eaten. Two escaped to the coast. One victim was tied to a tree and kept there until the cannibals were ready to devour him.
