AN UNEXPECTED ENEMY. The Cape papers record the fallowing incident attending the blowing up of Cetywayo's powder maga- zine:—"At noon on August 12, General Sir Garnet Wolseley, with Colonel Brackenbury, John Dunu, and an escort of artillery, with two empty ammunition carts and a led spare span of mules, started off to a cave some ten miles away, where large quantities of powder, &c., were known to be, and also, as it was said, an ambulance waggon from Isandula. After going some miles they found that the road was so bad that the carts could not go any further, so they were sent back and the rest went on. They came to the cave, and nearly 100 barrels of powder were got out and arranged with a train, so as to blow up the lot. While, getting out the last two or three, a large black mambs was seen coiled up, when Dann went in and fired at it with his rifle, wounding it in the bick; the snake then came straight at them, being over ten feet long, with its head reared up, when Dunn, taking a shot gun from one of his boys, let fly both barrels at it and killed it. It was a splendid specimen of one of the most dangerous and vicious species. Before leaving, the escort set light to the train, and blew up all the gunpowder. Coming back they passed the kraal where Cetywayo, with his wives and girls, had passed the first night after the battle. There were no traces of many men being with him, so that if he had been followed up immediately after the battle of Ulundi he must have been caught,"
