MONDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 18,1SC7.
THE ROPER HOSPITAL,.
By reforonco to our advertising columna of this
morning, it will ho seer/that the Board of Trasteos
of tho Roper Hospital officially announce the open?
ing this day of their favorite institution. In by?
gone days this hospital used to be deservedly
popular, and under the same experienced Board of
Directors, it will again becomo so. It is tho only
building within the city limits suitable for an hos- |
pital, and was built with 'special caro'to thc com?
fort and health of its inmates. Thc sick who seek
an asylum under its root will not only find every !
comfort and attention from its officers, but will bo
surrounded by cheerful scenes to divert their
minda. To the building is attached a handsome
flower garden, and from its numerous piazzas a
beautiful view orHhe distant river and islands can
he enjoyed. The lskfulness of the establishment
is so well known, and the comfort of the inmates
so constantly studied, that wa expect soon to hear
of its wards being filled with grateful patients.
Besides the poor sick, to whom the wards are al?
ways open, the building contains a number of
chambers into which are received pay patients. '
Hnnh nan bora find excellent aoRommodation, good
food, professional nursing, and skilled- medical at?
tendance, all for the email charge-bf one dollar
per day, which sum includes everything. Strangers
visiting the city, when taken Bick, should bear this
in mind. When sick, away from friends, they can
? 'obtain all tho comforts of home at the Boper Hos?
pital, and have their medical attendance included
for one-fourth the amount paid for. board in an
hotel. Any sick perron can gain admission into
this Hospital 'by obtaining an order',from the,
Mayor, or from any one of the members of the
Board of Trustees. Special wards are assigned to
colored persons, and the same care bestowed upon
them as upon the white patients. ..
Mr. ROTEE, to whose beneficence the city ia in?
debted for this noble charity, instructed -his exe?
cutors to extend the comfoits of his Hospital to
all applicants, whether white or black, citizens or
strangers. In carrying out his instructions the
Trustees of the Institution will welcome any suf?

REFORM IN ENGLAND:
On Monday last the mob. vulg., known as the Re
I form League in Loudon, had another "grand open
air" demonstration. Mr. DISRAELI, Uie.Chsncellor
of ?ho Exchequer, that same evening, aa if intimi
j dated by the monster procession, announced in the
House of Commons that the Government meant to
take up the question of reform at once, asking
only two weeks for themselves and all parties to
prepare for tho issue. The League ask for "man?
hood suffrage," but this, it is pretty certain, they
will not yet get. There will doubtless be a conces
? sion of further political privileges-and the.privi
lege of the elective franchise will-be given to many
now excluded-but conservatism has still a strong?
hold in England; and they will be slow to adopt
such Jacobin principles of policy* especially as
they have a striking example of their working ia
the distracted COE dit ion of America.
SOUTH AMERICAK AFFATBS.-The news from South
I America contains the usual variety of warlike and
j insurrectionary rumors. There is serious trouble
in the United States of Colombia. President MOS?
QUERA has made himself obnoxious to the Con?
gress-that body following the example of its great
I prototype and model of the .North, talks about
"impeachment." This unpleasant ceremony the
President proposes to avoid by preventing Con?
gress from meeting. The quarrel, it is expected,
will be an interesting one, and residents of Bogota,
the capital, are moving away that they may enjoy
it from a distance. TheAmericiin Minister having
also had a difficulty with MOSQUUBA, was preparing
to depart, and a general revolution in the State is
reported imminent. Brazil and Paraguay are re?
newing , their Tontest with vigor, and tho former
Government, it is said, had offered td emancipate
20,000 slaves, provided they would enter the army
now organizing to march against Paraguay. The
end of the war seems as remote as ever. There is'
a rumor that LOPEZ intended declaring himself
Emperor, and hoped for the r?cognition and friend?
ship of France. It would take half-a-dozen pro?
phets to foretell the result of South American dis?
sensions, and reveal the future of that unhappy
country. _' _j-. ' I
THE AMAZON.-This greatest river of the South
American region, destined to be a seat of empire
at some day equalling, perhaps, that of the great
valley of the Mississippi, is attracting more and
more the attention of the -civilized world. -Prof. I
AGASSIZ, who, under advantageous auspices, made
extended Brazilian explorations a year or two ago,
aided by a proper scientific corps, is haw lecturing
on the subject in New York, . He describes the pe?
culiarities of the Amazon and its affluents, and
gives an interesting account of the natural pro?
ducts of that fertile region, and adds on earnest,
plea for the extension of American commerce in
the. Brazils. He presents, with niuoljforce, the
new openings for commercial enterprise which are.
afforded by tue free navigation of the Amazon;.
speaks particularly of the three hundred varieties
of hard woods growing in Amazonian foresfs^Sthe'
introduction of which into the world's marketaj
for building purposes, would be of the utmost'
value; alludes to the waste of native productions
(by the present indolent population, and.warmly
urges the necessity of establishing settlements in
the valley of the Amazon, in order to develop its
THE FUTDBE. OF THE COUNTRY.-During the* de?
bate on the WILLIAMS Reconstruction Bill, Mr.
BANES, of Massachusetts, after opposing that
measure on various grounds, said "it was impos?
sible that the Government should go on for three
yeats longer, or two and a"half years, or two years,
without approaching the verge of ruin. Business ,
was; suspended now. The people were oppressed
with taxes; . Laborers were thrown'out of employ?
ment. Everything was unsettled. ?The-wisest
man could not look to the future without appre?
hension, if not without fear. The future was JW1;
of danger, and rather than face that danger for
two j and a half or three years longer the repre?
sentatives of the people would bo obliged ?o con
sider the condition of the country and what course
of conduct was necessary for the safety of the '
Government and the interests of the people:** "
As WE expected,' Radicalism is already beginning
to sneer at Mr. PEABODY'S recent. munificent gift
for educational purpose i in the South. His failure
to specify in a particular manner the beloved freed?
men, is not at all satisfactory.' Last week the In- I
outrer, ot Philadelphia, opened ita batteries, by
attacking that portion of the gift which includes
the bonds of the Planters' Bank of Mississippi, and j
coolly asserted that "the ruling popuUtion of the
South is not honest.**
