PONDOLAND. I I Declaration of British Protectorate. [SPECIAL TELEGRAM.] The news of the declaration of a British pro- tcctorata over the coast of Pondoland, though somewhat unexpected, was received in London with satisfaction this morning. The extent of the territory over which Great Britain has thus extended her suzerainty is about one hundred miles in length, and forms the central portion of the Transkei coast-line, being bound on the south by Tembuland, which intervenes between it and Cape Colony, and on the north by the Alexandra and Alfred territories, which are peopled by smaller Kaffir tribes, and which come between Pondoland and Natal, There is one principal port in Pondoland accessible to navigation at the mouth of St. John's river called Umzimnubu, situate about the centre of the coast line. This is the only port open to vessels along the coast from East London to Durban, and therefore is an acquision which may be of use to Great Britain either for commercial or other purposes.
