Koiuansbtnd is said to have been annexed to Natal, and ' the Snrveyor-General, wo believe, is now in that locality fixing the boundary beacons, bnt no official announce ment of 'the (act has yet been made. Some of our contemporaries seem to fancy this will interfere with Kir George Grey's ar rangements for locating Adam Kok'a peo ple, hut we neither see haw this should be the case, nor do we think it desirable, for tlie Griquas are both producers and consum ers. Tlie fact of Sir Walter Clinic having gone in to meet our Surveyor-General, docs not look like any alteration. Whe...
