reports affirm that the rising is headed by the chieftain Rumaliza, and others, that a son and nephew of Tippu Tib were leaders. Another account says that these men had nothing to do with the rising, but that its instigator was an Arab from Kasonga. Further tidings must be awaited before we can know what has actually happened, though the situation there is undoubtedly very grave.
DEFEAT OF SLAVE-TRADERS. Prince Henri de Croy, one of the Congo Free State Commissaries, reports to his government a successful attack upon a slave-trading caravan in his district of Loulouaburg. On the eleventh of last February he was informed that this caravan, led by one Antonio Alvaz, was approaching from Bihé, and as he had only forty soldiers at his command, he undertook to surprise it by night. Reaching the slave camp at four o'clock A.M. he found it was of a triangular form, each side being about 300 metres long. He could not therefore surround it, and unhappily an alarm was given and in ten minutes all the caravan was on the defensive. Never. theless Prince Henri began the attack, and in forty-six minutes of a hot fight, which the darkness made yet more difficult, the Bihé men were in full retreat, abandoning thirty slaves and a quantity of powder and guns. All the slaves were taken next das to the station, and, adds Prince Henri, “ Nothing can give an idea of the condition of these unfortunates."
MASHONALAND. — We have received, as yet, no tidings from the members of the East Central African Mission, who are by this time, we trust, already established in some portion of Gazaland. It is interesting to learn that Mr. Rhodes, the South African Premier, who has recently passed through Gazaland into Mashonaland, speaks with the utmost confidence of the future of this whole region. He says that it is less an Eldorado than a country that will afford a fine field for agricultural settlers.
