NEWS FROM THE CAPE.

[by telegraph.]

The steamer Afghan brings Cape news to Sept. 2G. Colonel Clark’s column, is on its way to Pietermaritzburg and Durban, by way of Middle drift and Grey town, the object of its marching by this route being to produce a moral effect on the Zulus living hi that direction, who are restless. John Dunn refuses to allow missionaries to enter his country, even Bishop Shroeder being excluded. His action is exciting much interest.

Numerous stories are circulated with regard to the behaviour of Cetewayo when on his way ta the Coast. There is a very general agreement amongst those who have seen him that he is a most superior man, the very last to be guilty of atrocities towards his subjects. It is not a little remarkable to' find what an absence there is of any evidence to prove the charges of a cruel disposition made against Cetewayo before the war fbegan. Every officer of intelligence who has been in Zululaml tells the same story, and m t a single Zulu has been found who does not profess regard for the late king. Although hundreds of Matal natives saw Cetewayo brought into the camp at Ulundi, only one native saw him at Port Dunford. The Natal Kaffirs state that the terms of the Zulu settlement leave the Zulus in possession of their country, cattle, and guns. Tne affairs of the transvaal are in a very uncertain state. It is not denied that Sir Garnet Wolscleys reception was anything but cordial.

It has been determined to erect a monument in Market Square, Pietermaritzburg, to the officers and men of the forces of the Colony who have fallen in the war, and to open a separate list to which contributions will be invited from England and South Africa, for the erection oi a monument on the field of Isandula.
