Zanzibar, December 21.
Details of the recent executions are of a most revolting character. Four prisoners were beheaded m the Market Place each day, one after another. Their eyes were not bandaged, and a blunt sword was used. Crowds witnessed the executions, which were of a sickening character.
Zanzibar, December 24
The Sultao, yielding to the protest of the British Consul-General, has refrained from carrying out his intention of executing a number of natives.
