* Cetanie is Depa's nephew, and a Chief of considerable influence in this neighbons. Erol. We fous! him at home, and after the usual inquiries after news he began to make excuses for por coming to God's house. Upon being informed we were going to Qwbelie's kraal, distant ahout ten miles, he offered himself, accompanied by one of bis men, as o'r guide. When I arrived at Qnobelie's, I saw, for the first time, Depa's sister. Bete is a fine-looking old woman, with hair as white as snow; bas the appearance of having been a tall stout woman, with European features ; but she is so troubled with rhenmatism that at present she cannot walk, and, in consequence of al. ways sitting on the ground with her knees up, the sinews are so contracted that she cannot possibly bend the knee at all, and is therefore unable to rise. She requested me to cure ber; and when I informed her that I feared it was too late, she begged me to try, saving. You can make iron soft, and how is it you cannot make my siders soft? She then asked for something to give a Caffre doctor : of course I stated that the dancing of a Catfre doctor would be of no avail. When she seemed unwilling to believe this, I proposed that she should get a doctor on the following terms :-that be should not be paid until the cure was effected, and then when she walked to me, I would pay the doctor five head of cattle ; and that in case the doctor did not succeed be should pay me five head of cattle. When she said no one would agree to it, 1 einbrared the opportunity of showing the folly of calling those doctors who knew they wrought no cures, and only laughed at those who paid them.
“When I directed her to pray to God, she asked,' Where does God live? How can I pray to hin when I don't know where he is?' I inquired if her mother dever talked to her about God; and, as though ashamed of her mother's negligence, she said, * I was too young, when my mother died, to recollect.' I replied, " That canoot be, as your son was a young man at the time of your mother's death.' Finding I knew this, she said, 'Why did she not? I am her child, and God is a person ny mother knew. I think she had so much to do with law (meaning polities) that she forgot Goi. Yon are of the same generation : you must call my mother up again. Why did God let her die ?" She appeared very attentive, while I talked to her about the Great Word. 0: how painful to behold one so old, and the daughter of a Eu. ropean, thus as dark as midnight!
On my return home, I passeil several kraals, and saw enough in this day's ride to convince me of the great necessity of praying for more labourers. I rode about forts miles, and yet have seen but part of one of the tribes connected with this station. It is true, the gospel is among them; but then such is the distance they have to come, and such their ignorance of the value of the gospel, that they seldom come, except those within three or four miles of the station. We do not expect to be able to carry it to every kraal : could we have it placed in every principal clan, and thus within a reasonable distance for the people, we should be thankful. I shall do all I can; but what is that, when compared to the demand their lost condition makes upon me? On the Sabbath, it is true we have upwards of four hundred hearers ; and in our own neighbourhood a Sabbath is known; but at the distant parts of the tribes connected with this station, no worship is known on that holy day. They can be visited occa. sionally in the week days; but so many and so various are the duties devolving on a Missionary here, that he cannot be much from home without the station suffering loss. We have no Class-Leaders, Local Preachers, or Sunday-school Teachers to belp; consequently all rests upon the Missionary and his assistant. “The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few.'
“12th. This morning I received a letter from brother Satchell, stating that the Zulas are returned to Natal. God has graciously answered our prayers. It appears they left home with the intention of making an attack on the Amapondas, but were directed to go a circuitous route, to conceal their intentions, in doing which they got into a strange country, and knew not what course to take. After consuming their cattle, and eating their shielils, many died of hunger ; and when reaching home in this helpless condition, some of their neighhours made an attack upon them, and destroyed a great number. It is supposed many thousands were lost either by hunger, or the attack made upon them. Ai I suppose brother Satchell has given you the particulars, I have mentioned it without going into lietail.

“ 13th.—This morning the great chief's principal son came to hear the news: when ! stated to him what I heard yesterday, he seemed filled with wonder; and when I asked him how we could account for it, he replied, • It is Fixo' (God) : ' we never knew an army lost before.' In the afternoon one of the principal counsellors cane, and when he heard the news, he replied, It is Fixo.. Thus have we an opportunity given us of preaching to them the necessity of making his word their delight who has preserved them in a way never heard of before. Even the heathen are sayiug, * The Lord hath done great things for them.'”
