THE ZULU WAR, j ————— i The following items of news are from The Times of i londay1 CAPETOWN, May 27. t The colonial foroes here mustered well on the Queen's ( irthday. Colonel Haasard, R.E., expressed a high opinion f their appearance and discipline. The 30th of May Is the day fixed for the forward movement < f the troops Into Zululand. ] A large number of waggons are arriving dally at Dundee, j iindiman'a Drift, and Conference-bill, to fill up the depots. 'orage for thirty-flve days, breadstuffs for three monthe, nd other supplies have already been collected. A report from Newcastle says that the Prince Imperial, in the Slat, while riding out from the camp, with several niceM, was surrounded by the enemy. Three of our Zulus vere killed. The Prince put his horse at a krantz (a rocky Lescent), and had a narrow escape. DURBAN, May 27. The situation here is little altered. There to good grass or a month hence In Zululand. A raid made by the Volun. eers and the Native Contingent from Krantz-kop was martially succesifal The Zulus opened fire when our men vere half across the river, but retreated before the heavy covering fire of our own natives A few kraals were burnt. fhere were no casualties on our side. Captain Walker has destroyed the headmaa's Kraal, and :aptured 200 cattle at a higher drift. The report as to a 5ulu raid on this side In reprisal Is contradicted. Major Chard and Colonel Pearson are both well. According to accounts the health of the troops Is better. rhe cavalry horses are doing good work up the country. The necessity of the complete subjugation of the Zulus is sverywhere insisted upon, to avoid future wars. Much satisfaction Is expressed at the burial by our nounted men of the bodies and the proof of the gallant itand made at Isandlana. RORKJ'S DRIFT, May 21. A strong reconnotssance was made from here to-day. Five tiundred of Slrayo's men were reported to be mealle reaping at the head of the Bashee Valley and 200 Zulu scouts were said to be behind Isandlana. general Marshall, with the Dragoons, the left wing of the Lancers, and Bengeugh's natives from Dundee, were joined a few miles from here by the right wing of the Lancers, two guns, four companies of the 2nd Battation of the 21th Regiment, and 75 pair of trans- port service horses. The right wing of the Lanoers, under Colonel Drury-Lowe, started for the bead of the Bashee Valley. Bengough's men turned to the left, and beat up the valley further on. The men of the 2tth Regi- ment remained watching Slrayo's Kraal. As we proceeded a lovely sunrise revealed the fatal Isandlana still In the distance. We had a picturesque march, especially crossing the Spruits, with the Lanoers with their pennons and the red-coated Dragoons, through mountainous scenery aDd misty valleys. Smart trotting brought us to Iiandlana Neck, where we saw the first dead bodies. Hundreds were only partially clothed. On the other alile of the Neck, behind Isandlana, lay the camp in a line extending over halt a mile. Most of the deserted waggons were uninjured, mealies growing round and under them from the scattered seed. The majority of the men had evi- dently been killed outside the camp. Among the waggons there were comparatively few bodies and they were equally scattered. The body of Colonel Shepatone was discovered and buried. Colonel Durnferd's body, with those of Lord Downe, and Vereker, all of the artillery, were also buried. At the express reqiest of the officers of the 24th Regiment none of their dead were baried. Several note-books and papers were found untouched. The native dead were ex- tremely scarce. We bamessed the traniport horses to 37 of the best waggons, and two water carte, and then returned. LoWHR TCGILA, May 25. The Queen's message and congratulations on the battles of Kambula Hill and Ginghilova havs given the greatest satis- faction to the troops of the 1st division. No further news has been received as to Cetywayo's peace proposals. The colonists plaee no reliance upon them. Our patrols while reconnoitring are frequently fired upon and there Is evidence as to great alertness on the part ef the Zulus. No large force of the enemy Is near either the 1st or 2nd Divisions, but this Is no criterion, as they can run to either division from the King's Kraal in 24 hours. There was no parade of troops on her Majesty s birthday the majority being absent on convoy duties and the re- mainder employed en fatigue parties and as guards. There was great cheering, howenr, all the Royal suttto pro- ceeded. Captain Murray, of the Intelligence Department, and a troop of Lonsdale's Horse have just returned from recon. noitring almost as far as Ekowe and report that no Zulus are to be seen. Major Barrow, of the Mounted Infantry, Is preparing a bridge to throw over the Umvaloai when the division marches to Fort Chelmsford.
