THE LAND OF THE WATTLE
following, written by J. L.
Pinkcrton '14, nppeared in a recent
issue of a current magazine:
In these waters, by reason of the
strong currents, they continued, now
gaining, now losing in their course,
until on the day of the Nativity they
passed by the coast of "Natal," to
which they gave that name. Thus
it was that on Christmas Day, 1497,
Vasco dn Gama sailed by the coast
of the territory now known as the
Province of Natal and did not have
the good taste to stop!
Three centuries roled by and yet
the Terra do Natal remained a closed
book to Europe. It was only in 1821
that a serious effort was made to establish a settlement in the territory,
in which year a small band of adventurous spirits from Capo Colony
landed in the "Bay1 of Natal." This
expedition, destined to be the beginning of great things, was under the
direction of Lieutenant Farewell, R.
N. (indeed, what's in a name?). The
existing records have it that Farewell
built his camp on the site of the present palatial Town Hall, one of the
finest structures of the subcontinent.
A century of progress!
And Natal's sons have had impressed
minds, through the medupon their

Durban, the great deeds of their

great and warlike people have been
conquered, and today a Zulu is more
remarkable as a rickshaw boy than
as the man behind the dreaded "assegai"; cities have been built and
prosperous communities have been
Natal has become the
"Land of the Wattle"; churches,
schools and even colleges have been
established; and Natalians are proud,
too, that in the "Bay of Natal" has
been developed the "first port in Africa Durban."
Right handsomely did they celebrate the Centenary! Many miles of
bunting and pennants enlivened the
workaday appearance of Durban's
principal streets by day and thousands of electric lights by night. The
four days set aside for the official
celebrations were a continuous round
of military reviews, unveiling ceremonies (at commemorative tablets)
tab-bfireworks displays and gigantic
thousands of school children
Some of the larger business houses
had made and displayed on the fac
ades of their buildings, enormous
paintings illustrating the progress
made since the arrival of the British
settlers in 1824; also portraits of the
nrominent pioneers. It is interesting
tn nnto that among the latter was
an American citizen G. C. Cato
who later became the first mayor of
Durban, and who assisted Dick King
to escape the Dutch outposters in
1824, when he started on his famous
Cane Colony (vide post).
The ceremonies were presided over
Uv TTor Roval
Alice (sister of the King and wife
of the present Governor General, the
Earl of Athlone). Besides the local
officials and South African military
organizations, there, were present several units of the Royal Navy to do
honor to the memory of the hardy
nionnors of Natal. The United States
nlsn officially participated in the cole
brations in the persons of the officers

great army of them under Dingaan,
actually leaving thousands on the
field, in avenging the treacherous
massacre of Piet Reteif and a party
of Boers. History tells us that be

fervently, promising their God that
if victory be theirs a temple should
be raised to Him and the day should
be marked as a day apart. Dingaan's
Day is now a national holiday in
South Africa, and there stands in
Pietermaritzburg a little church, me

the Boers. The capital of the union

their valient leader Andries Pree- torius.
