THE ZULU WAR.

The cockneys maintain their own opinion concerning the Zulu war, and are not slow to explain it. Mr Archibald Forbes lately lectured at Shoreditch on the war. In commencing he _ stated that he wolud introduce no subject of controversial chai-acter, and therefore he refrained from criticising the action of Lord Chelmsford. When, however, he had described the death of the Prince Imperial, he stated that he would only speak of brave men that evening, and therefore ho must ask to be excused from saying anything about Lieutenant Carey. This remark, which was uttered with considerable emphasis, was received with some cheers, but almost immediately a volley of hisses was raised, and cries of “ Withdraw that statement!” and “Why did did you spare Chelmsford V’ wore heard above the din. The audience refused to allow Mr. Forbes to proceed, and three cheers for Carey were called for. amid evident sympathy. Mr Holmes, M. P., for Hackney, appealed for order, saying that he held his own opinion on the subject, but it was only fair to allow the lecturer to go on. This was sullenly agreed to by the discontented ones, but it was some time before the former enthu--1 siasui of the meeting was recovered.
