of 30, 000,000V It probabiy contains 100,
000,000, of people., We cannot hope to
possess ourselves of Africa as we did of
America, ior, suto oy siue imn m on na
own' soil, the African would sorely prove
the stronger. So, whether we meet with
him in his owu land or elsewhere. It Is
manifestly to our own interests (to say
nothing of higher motives) to make the
best of Win. J t is in Africa ltselt we must
look to the highest possibilities ot the race,
for those outside are slaves or the descend
ants of slaves. They live also In the lands
of tbeir thraldom, aud in the presence of
those who are, or those ,who nave been,
tbeir masters, x ou may free them an.
but yon will not purge them from tlie ill
effects of slavery uniply by emancipating
them. It will take many years to get rid
ot the mischief which long generations of
slavery have wrought in their natures.
Had the Israelites, after their ; eiiiaricrpa
tlon, remained in Egypt in the presence of
tneir iormer masters, tney womu . nave
been slaves In nature still. And so It was
with tlie free colored men in the United
States and West " Indies. Their associa
tions tend to keep alive tlie recollections
of tlie past and to check noblest aspira
tions. The galling discomfort, if not of
legal DroscriDtion. yet of bitter caste pre
judice in the whiles, and which manifests
Itself tn every-tiay lire in a tnonsana cruet
and annoying ways, are greatly against
them. These people, therefore, afford as
yet no fair criterion ot what the AfjlCRn
nice is capable. I believe, however, that
the possibilities ot the Africans on their
own soil are not inferior to those of any
race of men on tlie earth. Their civiliza
tion triay, in some things, prove unlike
our own, their range ot virtue and vice
somewhat different, yet I do . not think
they will prove mentally our interiors, or
tliat their moral standard ! will be lower.
I say this from no theory evolved from
my own Inner consciousness. . but from a
conviction which is the result of a personal
knowledge or them .-vomniu Magazine.
Pitch kh Broken at the Fcttxtain.
They lately had an ice sensation in Daven
port, lowa. trie poor people living on
tlie river-side had a hole In the Ice where
thev went with, tbeir buckets and drew
clear, ready-made ice-water. The bole
was about twenty inches in diameter, and
tlie consumers keen tlie well open and in
rood order. - The other morrilas a river
side dweller saw a bucket on the ice near
the well, and told his little daughter to go
and see wliose it was. She went and soon
came running back terrified and said there
was a dead woman in the water-hole. The
man stirred around amongst his neighbors
to fiud out who was mLssimr. He found a
man sleeping in bed whose wife had got
up at five o'clock in the morning and gone
to the river to get water to make his coffee.
He had fallen asleep again and was not
aware of how long tlie partner of his bed
had been gone. A little procession of
poor people was made across the Ice to tlie
water-hole. There was the missing woman,
lying face upward, staring at the sky
through a thin sheet of loa that bad closed
over her after her death struggle was past.
There were marks ot blood on the brink.
where she had cut her bands clutching at
Uie ice. She had become wedged in the
narrow aperture so that she could not sink
and float away 'under the thick, frozen
sheet with the current of the river. Her
bucket was right-side up and close to the
nrinK. one stepped into toe wen oy acci
dent, in the shadows of the dark morning.
and could not drag herself out. -' She faced
futurity just as she, lav. and the pitying
frost tenderly spread, a thin veil over her
wnite iace. rue poor people, dweuers on
the river-side, have abandoned tbeir water
hole, and no mora dripping buckets are
carried across tlie ice since the pitcher, was

'The Academy says: "Colonel Gordon
has discovered the real character of Abou
Saood, the slave-dealing rufilan, .against
whom he was warned by Sir Samuel Baker,
but who waa nevertheless engaged for the
expedition. Certain correspondents of tlie
Times, both in England and Egypt, thought
proper to doubtSir Samuel Baker's estimate
of Abou Saood's character, and insinuated
that he had acted harshly towards this arch
slave-hunter, and that Colonel Gordon's
tact and judgment would show the man in
a different light. The result shows that Sir
Samuel Baker was quite right.' ' ' -
