-(Received August 26.) MY LORD

Delagoa Bay, July 26, 1890. I have the honour to inclose herewith a despatch, together with its inclosures, sent to me by Vice-Consul Ross, of Quilimane, for transmission to your Lordship.

(Inclosure 1.)- Vice-Consul Ross to the Marquess of Salisbury.

MY LORD,

Quilimane, July 18, 1890. I HAVE the honour to inform your Lordship that last night five Europeans, employés of the African Lakes Company (Limited), presented themselves to me bere, and informed me that they, with twenty-seven natives forming the crew of the British steamer James Stevenson, of Glasgow, the property of the African Lakes Company (Limited), of Glasgow, had been arrested by the order of Lieutenant João Coutinho, Military Governor of the Shiré, and sent down to the coast as prisoners, and that the steamer had been seized and detained in the River Ruo by the same officer under the following circumstances :

On the 6th July the steam-ship James Stevenson, having on board of her the above-mentioned officers and crew, and in addition the following passengers, Mr. Joseph Thomson and J. A. Grant, and fifty-five carriers of the British South Africa Company, Rer. L. H. Frere, G. A. Sheriffs, and seven native teachers of the Universities Mission, Dr. G. Steel, and two others of the Free Church of Scotland Mission, and two employés of the African Lakes Company (Limited), steamed

up the Shiré near the opening of the River Ruo. As the steamer approached the boundary, she whistled to warn the Portuguese officials of her approach in case they should wish to search the vessel as usual. Not receiving any challenge, the vessel passed on above the Ruo, hoisting the British ensign after passing the boundary, and made fast at the public landing-place on the left bank of the Sbiré north of the Ruo, and the passengers began to go ashore. At this moment, and not till then, three pieces were fired one after the other in the Portuguese camp, and soon after a boat with a Portuguese official came alongside, and the steamer was boarded by this official, who demanded that the passengers' pass. ports and ship's papers should be exbibited to him, and that he should be allowed to search the ship. He was refused, on the ground that the vessel was in British water, upon which he demanded that the vessel should be taken back into Portuguese waters and there searched. This was promptly refused, and the official left, threatening to arrest the steamer and crew as soon as she should return to Portuguese waters.

The landing of passengers and the discharging of cargo was proceeded with and concluded on the following day, and on a second demand being made by the same official, accompanied by an interpreter, the passports were offered to him as a favour, but he refused to look at them under these circumstances.

On the 10th July, about 1 o'clock in the afternoon, steam was
