SOUTH AFRICA. The principal agitators in the re cent industrial upheaval aro well on their Tvay to England in spite of the effort df some sympathiser? to inter cept the vessel and effect a rescue. Their wives and families will be sent on afterwards at the expense of the Union Government 60 they will not have much to complain of. Certainly deportation seems rather a drastic proceeding but if it be true that evi dence has been obtained of an in tended social revolution the plotters may congratulate themselves on hav ing got off so lightly.
