HANROTT—On the 3rd inst., on board the S.S. Induna, on his way from Chinde to Durban, Charles Cory, the dearly-loved second son of Robert Cory Hanrott, of Sussex Lodge, Hampton Hill, aged 22.
Letters just received at Plymouth from Cape Town give particulars of the death of Lieutenant HICKLEY, of the Phoebe, son of Admiral Hickley, of Devonport. Deceased went ashore near Lourenco Marques duck shooting, accompanied by a small Kafir boy. At Calembi, just across the river, he shot a duck and handed his gun to his attendant to hold while he went to procure the game. After walking only a few steps he began to sink in a bed of quicksand. The boy tried to pull him out, but without success, and in a few moments the Lieutenant was swallowed up in the sands. Deceased’s body was afterwards recovered, and he was buried at Lourenco Marques.

We regret to learn of the death of Mr. R. M. Ross, which took place early, at his residence at Rondebosch. Mr. Ross had been in such feeble health for a considerable time that the event was by no means unexpected, but the removal of so estimable and kindly a gentleman from the scene will none the less awaken very general regrets. Mr. Ross, who was 71 years of age, started life, we understand, in the bookseller’s business in Cape Town, but afterwards took to the Strand Street business, with which his name has been for many years associated. He was, until compelled to resign through ill-health, an elder of the Scottish Presbyterian Church, and was always to the fore in religious and philanthropic movements. Otherwise, he did not care much for public life, although at one time, at the urgent request of his fellow-citizens, he contested a seat in the Legislative Council with Mr. Neethling. Mr. Ross was also for some years a member of the Rondebosch Municipality.

Miscellaneous Articles on the same page:

Mr. POWYS, who has for a long time past agitated for the construction of the Umbilo tram line, picked the first piece of ground the other day at Durban. There was a fairly large concourse of people interested, including the Borough Engineer (Mr. Fletcher), Mr. Harvey (of the Tram Company), Mr. Hadfield, Mr. Blunderfield (Inspector Tram Company), and Mr. Jameson (Borough Engineer’s office). Town Councillors were conspicuous by their absence. The ceremony was commenced without much formality. After divesting himself of coat and hat, Mr. Powys wielded the pick with vigour, and soon had a good piece of the road broken up. Subsequently, he addressed a few remarks to the assembled spectators, and sketched out the history of the movement in favour of the tram line. The coolie gang immediately afterwards took possession of the road, and, by noon, had a large portion of the track broken up. The Engineer expects to have the work finished in two or three months. The cost is estimated at £3000, and the distance is upwards of three quarters of a mile.

Good work is being accomplished at Zuurfontein in connection with the new Transvaal dynamite factory, which, it is said, will be the largest in the world.

At Pretoria St. David’s Day was celebrated by local Welshmen, with a banquet, at which Sir Jacobus de Wet and Bishop Bousfield were guests, and at Johannesburg by a banquet at the Grand National Hotel. There was a good gathering, and the function was a great success.
