PARTICULARS OF OUTWARD, HOMEWARD, AND COASTWISE SERVICES.

ROYAL MAIL SERVICE. -The South African Royal Mail Steamers are despatched from Southampton every Saturday for the Cape of Good Hope and Natal, via Madera.

On the outward journey the Royal Mail Steamers proceed as far as Durban, at which port they commence the homeward voyage, sailing thence every Thursday; from East London every Friday ; from Algoa Bay (Port Elizabeth) every Saturday ; arriving at Capetown usually on Monday morning, and proceeding thence to Southampton, via Madeira, on the Wednesday.

The Mail Service to St. Helena and Ascension is performed by the Intermediate Steamers calling at these islands. Outward and Homeward, every four weeks.

INTERMEDIATE SERVICE.—The Intermediate Steamers are despatched every week from London, calling at Southampton on the following day, and taking Passengers at lower rates than by the Royal Mail Steamers for the Cape Colony, Natal, Lourenço Marques (Delagoa Bay), and Beira. These Steamers proceed alternately via Las Palmas (Grand Canary) and Teneriffe.

There is a regular homeward service by Intermediate Steamers from the Cape Ports, Durban, Lourenço Marques, Beira and Mauritius via Las Palmas or Teneriffe to Southampton, and thence to London. These Intermediate Steamers sometimes call at Plymouth on the homeward voyage.

EAST COAST SERVICE.-Every 28 days a Steamer is despatched from London, calling at Southampton, Marseilles and Naples, Port Said, and proceeding via Suez to Port Sudan, Aden, Momhasa, Zanzibar, Mozambique, Chinde, Beira, Lourenço Marques and Natal. Both outward anti homeward this East Coast Steamer connects at Natal with the NIail Steamer to and from England.

MAURITIUS SERVICE.-There is a direct Steamer between England and Mauritius, outward and homeward once a month.

LOBITO BAY.—Calls at Lobito Bay are made on the outward and homeward voyage as required.

RETURN TICKETS.—A reduction off the amount of two Single bares between the same ports is made on Return Tickets. Return Tickets are available for twelve months.

SINGLE TICKETS, RE-BOOKING ALLOWANCE-Passengers who have taken a Single Ticket only from England or South Africa (paying the full single tariff fare thereon), and who return to the port at which they embarked within twelve months from the date of such embarkation, will be allowed a reduction of 10 per cent, on the amount of the single journey back, on production of the counterfoil of the first single ticket taken by them. This concession does not apply to passages Coastwise or to Ports at which the steamers of the Union-Castle Line do not call.

The period of twelve months specified above cannot under any circumstances be extended.

PREPAID PASSAGES, OUTWARD OR HOMEWARD.- Passages can be prepaid in England or South Africa for friends on the other side, and advice of such passages can be sent by cable at a small additional expense if desired.

The Company, however, does not accept any responsibility for any inaccuracy, mistake or oversight on the part of the Company’s Servants or Agents, or any other persons, in the wording, despatch or delivery of any telegram or letter in connection with these prepaid passages, or for any consequences arising therefrom.
