Should Cetewayo still hold out, Ulundi would be stormed in

a few days, General Newdigate's column and Sir Evelyn Wood's being actually in sight of the kraal, though large bodies of Zulus lie between them and Ulundi, and intend, it is assumed, to resist an advance. The correspondent of the Telegraph obviously regards this resistance with alarm, making the astounding statement that Lord Chelmsford has left six separate garrisons behind him, till he has "only 3,000 British infantry with him." The columns are moving, however, more rapidly—eight miles in one day—with no tents, and waggons loaded with only ten days' Provisions; and General Wolseley was hourly expected from Port Durnford, whither he had gone with his Staff by sea, from Durban. The friendly chiefs of Natal, too, had obeyed his order to meet him at Pietermaritzburg, had received him !varmly, and had promised him 4,000 bearers to carry provisions, 1..n case he desired to make a rapid march. All this shows that if peace is not made, there will be at least one sharp, though we trust successful, struggle.
