the King's Dragoon Guards. On the 1st of Sep-1
tember, Sir Garnet Wolseley, who had arrived at
the end of June to tako the supreme civil and
military command in Natal and the Transvaal,
assembled the chiefs of the Zulu nation at Ulundi,
and explained to them the new order of things to
be established in Zululand. The dynasty of Chaka
was deposed, and the country was divided into
thirteen districts, each under an independent
Chief, holding office by the gift of the Queen of
England, subject to certain conditions accepted by
him The terms of the ultimatum in regard to
matters of government were to be carried out; and
a British resident was appointed to reside in Zulu
land, and be the adviser of the chiefs and channel
of communication between them and the British

The main defect in this arrangement was the want of a recognised and paramount authority; and difficulties were soon experienced in its working. Some of the appointed chiefs quarrelled and fought with one another and with their subjects, many of whom refused to recognise the authority of those placed over them. A large and influential party were anxious for the restoration of Cetywayo, more than one deputation visiting the Natal Government to make known their wishes on the subject. Sir H. Bulwer, who had assuined the government of Natal in the early part of 1882, was specially commissioned to inquire into the whole question of the Zulu settlement, with a view to its being placed on a stable footing. After fully considering his report, Her Majesty's Government decided to replace the ex-king over a part of his former kingdom, subject to certain conditions, and to constitute the remainder of Zululand an independent native territory. The whole country north of the Umlatoosi River, with the exception of a smal territory in the north-east, which Usibepu, one of the thirteen chiefs appointed by Sir Garnet Wolseley, was allowed to retain, was restored to Cetywayo, and the territory between the Umla


toosi and the Natal frontier was constituted a
native reserve, under the supervision of
British commissioner. It was arranged that
locations should be provided in this reserve for
any of the Zulus who might be unwilling to again
submit to the restored king. Cetywayo, who had
at his own request been allowed to visit England,
where the decision of the Government was com-
municated to him, and by him formally accepted,
was re-installed by Sir Theophilus Shepstone on
the 29th January in the presence of 5,000 Zulus.
His enemies, headed by Usibepu, proved more
formidable and more intractable than he or others
had anticipated, and after a struggle of some
months he was overthrown and his kraal destroyed.
He took refuge in the reserve, where he lived
practically under the care of the Resident, a defeated
exile, until the 8th of February, 1884, when he
Soon after his death the Usutus finding
themselves no match for Usibepu, called in some
Boer adventurers from the Transvaal and else-
where, with whose assistance they inflicted a
crushing defeat on Usibepu, who has been driven
to take refuge in the Reserve. As a reward for
this service they received a grant of nearly
3,000,000 acres of land, in which they have estab-
lished a Republic, and taken all Zululand outside
the Reserve under the protection of the new State.
Dinizulu, Cetewayo's eldest sor, has been pro-
claimed king in succession to his father.

On the 18th Dec., 1884, the British flag was hoisted at St. Lucia Bay, which was ceded to the English Government by Panda in 1843.

The Zulu Native Reserve is administered by a resident commissioner, who is immediately responsible to Sir H. Bulwer as H.M.'s special commissioner for Zulu affairs; and order is maintained by a force of seventy-five mounted native police, called the Reserve Territory Carbineers. The expenditure for 1883, amounting to 5,318., was met from a grant in aid from the Imperial exchequer, but the revenue received principally from the Hut Tax, of 10s. per hut, during 1884, has been sufficient to cover the expenditure, and it is expected that the territory will in future be self-supporting. The estimated revenue for 1884 was 6,7501., and expenditure 6,6477., including extraordinary expenditure, amounting to 845., on account of the disturbed state of the country.

The establishment of the Reserve is as follows: Resident Commissioner, Melmoth Osborn, C.M.G., 1,000l.

Sub-Commissioner, A. L. Pretorius, 4507.

Lieut.-Col. Cardew, 82nd Reg.

An Act was passed by the Legislative Council, in 1875, authorising the construction of a railway from Pietermaritzburg to the Port of Durban, 78 miles, with a branch northwards from Umgeni to Verulam, 193 miles, and one south to the Isipingo River, 7 miles. The estimated cost of the work, 1,200,000l., was raised by loan; the contract was executed by Messrs. Wythes and Jackson. The first sod was turned by the Lieutenant-Governor on the 1st of January, 1876, and the line was in finally completed and opened for traffic November, 1880. A further extension to Ladysmith (118 miles), at an estimated cost of 1,450,000l., is being constructed, and the whole will be finished and opened early in 1886. A contract for the work has been entered into with Mr. James Perry (since deceased).


The volunteer force of the Colony at the end of 1884 consisted of 785 of all ranks.

There is also an armed and mounted police force, numbering 248 Europeans of all ranks, and 25 natives.


There are various missionary establishments in Natal, supported by voluntary aid, for the advancement of the 362,000 Zulu-Kafir subjects of the Queen. The Churches of England and Scotland, the Wesleyans, the Dutch Reformed, the Americans, the Prussians, the Hanoverians, the Norwegians, and the Church of Rome, all have their stations. Tariff.

The following is the table of customs duties levied at Port Natal, under authority of laws No. 18, 1866; No. 1, 1867; Nos. 2 and 20, 1872; No. 17, 1874; No. 11, 1875; Nos. 2, 3, and 4, 1881; and No. 14, 1884.
