[PER PKEBB ASSOCIATION.] London, November 1. Information has been recurred from Zanzibar that several African traders, wLo have arrived there, give news of Stanley's expedition. They met the rear-guard about the end of November, which was moving m the direction of the Albert ityanza. At this time the main division under Stanley himself, was welll ahead, although the leader had been prostrated for some three weeks by an attack of fever. The advance of the expedition was largely impeded by dense forests and abounding marshes, and frequently the day's record gave ODly a mile and a quarter m the . desired direction. The I party were short of provisions, and had been compelled to seize what they could from tribes inhabiting the country, through which they passed. When the traders left Stanley he expressed his intention to strike northward for a time and then make for the east, expecting to reach Wadelai.
