CHRISTENING
In St.Mary’s Church, Port Elizabeth, by the Rev. F. McCleland AB, Trinity College Dublin, Colonial Chaplain,
On Sunday 22nd August
A daughter of Mr. RUSSELL, baptized Eliza.

The brig ‘Flora’, now in this port, is we understand chartered to go to the Umzimvoobo, or “Gates of St.John”, to endeavour to open up that part of the country. We are glad that this undertaking has fallen into the hands of such an experienced and enterprising seaman as Captain DUTHIE, and we are assured that if an opening is there to be made it will now be effected. A few such points of entrance, as the Umzimvoobo, will effectually lay open the resources of Kafirland to the influences of commerce, and bring the country itself at length under the milder sway of civilization.
