SIR H. ROBINSON.
London, Junt 3. I In the House of Lords Lord Knutsford declared that Sir Hercules Robinson's retirement flora the Governorship of Cape Colony was purely voluntary, and that nothing has passed between the Colonial Office and Sir Hercules expressing disapproval of the latter's administration at the Cape. Lord Koutsford stated that Government was not in a position to promise to support the views held by Sir H. Robinson without first discussing them. In speaking to the question both the Earl of Carnarvon and the Earl of Kimberley asserted that the successor to Sir H. Robinson would be compelled to follow the policy set forth by him.
