A NEW BREED OF MEN.
In ft former letter, I mentioned to you '
that Col. Ducourct, who has ulrendy penetrated
far into Africa, was about to set
out on a new and extensive exploration
of five years, under the special auspices
of the French government, and at the
charge of the treasury. The minister of
public instruction asked of the Academy 1
of dciences some instructions for him.
which were read at the sitting1 of the 20th 1
wef A ?Vi* enmn fimn tlu?. f7(llnnpl ad. '
dressed to the Academy a notice of the i '
race of the Qhilanes inhabiting the into- ! '
rior of Africa, and lenownrd among neigh '
boring tribes as caudulutcd or having 1
tails. The matter is ho curious that I j ]
have caused to be translated for you '
what has been published about K bv one 1
of the scientific reporters. Lord Jlfonboddc
will not have erred so much in his 1
From the Scicntifie Report.
There exists a race of men who, according
to the report of certain travellers, are '
originally of the kingdom of Gondar, or of
others, who nay they inhabit Soudan in
the ?South, whoso zoological character i--tics
are remarkable: Thev have a tail
like appendage formed by the elongation (
of the vertebral column, nnd they are the
last link in the humnn race, yhe slave
merchants cannot disj os* of them without
great difficulty; fo bad is their repu- j
tation. The trmts which distingui -h j
them are hideous ugliness of face and 1 j
figuie, ungovernable tempers and stolid !
intellect. Some of thh race arc to 1 e
found afoo, in the Philippine Islands, but , |
they were, doubtless, cariied thither by ! >

be, v hen a Levantine is looking out for I
slaves in theE'ist, he is always warned
not to purchase one who has a tail; he is .
told?"Of all slaves, this is the least p o- j ^
Stable." This race of men is very far j |
behind that of which Founier di e: me 1. \ ^
and which was, some day, to become the ! .
type of manly beauty, morally and phys- i
ically. " | (
M. Ducouret, who was in Mecca in the 1 |
year 1842, saw an individual of the species
we have just mentioned, and belonging,
he was told, to the breed of Ghihimes
in the South. Though it be not the
first time we have heard the race of men
sooken of. who are furnished with tails,
nevertheless (lie fact i* not sufficiently '
common to take away its interest.. We ?
will, therefore, enter somewhat inio dotail
upon this stranjye organic nmnifrsta- .
tion. "I inhabited Mec;ca in 1842,":?nvs
M. Ducouret. "and being of'r" ;?f tinhouse
of nn Emir with whom 1 was intimate,
I spoke to him of the Ohilane rncr,
and told him how much the Eu'ope.tns
doubted the existence of men with t>?ils,
that h to sav. the vertebral column elon
gated externally. In order to convince
me of the reality of the specie*, the Emi
ordered before me one of his slaves c: lied
Belial who vns about tJ>Hv years old, '
who lmd a tail, and who belonged to rhi
tribe. On surveying t! i? men I was 1
thoroughly convinced. He 8poke Arab- '
ic well, and appeared rather intelligent 1
Hr told me that in his conn' ry, far hevond
he Sennar, which he had crossed, thev
Bpoke a different language: thi-> for went
of practice, he had entirely forgotten: that
of his compatiiots, whom he estimated at

and the soirees of an immense tit er, in
which they immolated their xK'ims?
(probably the month of the Nile) tint
they nte with delight raw flesh, as Moody
as possible, and that they loved human
flesh above all things?that, after their
battles with the neighl* oing tiil es, they
slaughtered and devou-cd their p?i oners
without distinction of age or sex, but that
the women and childi en were preferable,
their flesh being mo.c delicate. Thi
Ghilance had become a devout Mns?ul
man, nnd line! lived 15 years in the ITolv
City. The fondness, the necessity, even
for raw fiesh, (i' really was a want with
him) did not fail to return upon him; and
his master, therefore, hy a precaution,
never faij'?d, when his fit was on him, to
provide him with an enormous piece of
raw mutton, which he consumed ravenously
hefo-e every I ody. This de-re
for raw flesh f howed i*- elf periodically:
sometimes twi^e r week. Heinj? as' ed
why he did not try to c.or:ect such a h^hit,
he answe e'l frankly. *1 have often ,

The following extract from a letter of

"Gen.Twiggs left here on Saturday

he expects there to meet the Indians in

breakers, bring them here and hang them.

judge tliesiimc- old tune will be once more

that Gen. Twiggs nnd received full authority

deemed fit. The whole mat ter it appears
is left to his judgement whether to muster
them or nut, and tho whole responsibility
is thrown upon hi.-- shoulders. We
apprehend that Gen. Twiggs will not fear
to undertake such responsibility, and that
