GERMAN ANNEXATION IN AFRICA. The Claim to St. Lucia Bay. Action of the Government. Official Despatches to Australia. [REUTER'S TELEGRAM. J BERLIN, Monday.—Herr Luederitz, who is now here, states in an interview with the repL-Ler of a Berlin newspaper that King Dinigulu had signed a contract conferring on him full sovereign rights over the territory surrounding St. Lucia's Bay, which he (Herr Luederitz) had acquired. The hoisting of the British flag- at St. Lucia Bay is looked upon by the German public as an invalid act, as Herr Luederitz seeks to place under German protection the territory which he has acquired there, and to which he maintains he has an indefeasible claim. Ontheotlier hand, inhisrh official and diplomatic circles an absolute contra- diction is given to the statement that complications regarding ths St. Lucia district have arisen between the English and German Governments. The whole district in question was ceded to England by King Panda in 1841, and has remained since in her undisputed pos- session, and the German Government, fully recog- nising this fact, has taken no steps towards pushing the Luederitz claims. It is also denied that a single communication has passed on the subject with the British Government, and it is furthermore affirmed that Germany has no in- tention of opening correspondence or negotia- tion? relative thereto. In any case not a single word has passed on the matter through the English Embassy. The Central News is in a position to state that as a result of the Cabinet Councils on Friday and Saturday last, important despatches have been sent from the Colonial Office to Lord Augustus'Loftus (Governor of New South Wales), Sir Henry Loch (Governor of Victoria), and other of her Majesty's representatives in Australasian colonies. There is reason to believe that these despatches contained communications of a re- assuring character in regard to the question of foreign designs in the Western Pacific, and that their publication will greatly allay the public ex- citement in the colonies.
