OLIVES W. HOLMS 6.
I saw him once before,
As he pass'd by the door;
The pavement stones resound
As he totters o'er the ground
With his caoe.
They say that in his prime,
Ere the pruning-knife of Time
Cut him down,
Not a better man was touud
By the crier on his round
Through tho town.
But now he walks the streets,
And he looks at all he meets
So forlorn ;
And he shakes his feeble head,
And it sectus as if he said,
"They are gone."
Thc mossy marbles rest
On the lips that he has pressed
In their bloom :
And the names he loved to hear
Have been carved for many a year
On the tomb.
My grandmamma has said
Poor old lady! ?ie is dead
That he hal a Roman ;iose,
And his cheek was lito a rose
In the sno*v.
And now hir- nose is thin.
And it rests upon his chin
Like a staff ;
And a crook is in his hack.
And a m lanchuly crack
In his laugh.
I know it is a sin
For me to sit and grin
At him here,
But tho old thrce-corner'd hat,
And the breeches-and ad that.
Are so queer!
And if I should h ve to be
The last leaf upon the tree
In the spring
Let them smile as I do now
At the old forsaken bough
Wh;-re I cling.
The Blaclc Cannibals.
A WONDERFUL NARRATIVE BT MONS. DU CHA ELLO,
THE AFRICAN EXPLORER.
M. Du Chaillu, the celebrated African trav?
eller and hunter, in a lecture delivered in New
York last week, gave an account of his adven?
tures among the Fans, 8 cannibal tribe of
Africa, discovered by biro during his explora?
tions of that continent. Du Chaillu is a small
sized, dark complexioned, gentlemanly man,
and spoke with a French accent, and not very
fluently, bat in a simple, direct and pleasing
manner. After introductory remarks, explain?
ing how he came to visit the country of the
Fans, he said :
"I never before saw such wild men. They
were all armed to tho teeth with spears, poi?
soned arrows and knives. Their bodies were
tattooed all over, their teeth wore dyed black,
and they looked moro like ghouls than mern
On the ground were the skulls of dead men,
and bones were scattered all through the
streets. The women were the ugliest I ever
saw, and were much smaller than the mon.
The King did not want to see me, being afraid
that he should dio if he saw a spirit. The men
did not seem afraid, but the worn en did. I ?aw
one of the latter run into one of the huts with
the leg of a man just cut off. This made me
feel very uncomfortable, and my only consola?
tion was that I wp s very thin and not worth
much for eating. At length tne King came to
me, surrounded by his warriors. He was
dressed with thc skins of wild beasts, and held
a spear in bis hands. He looked at me with
wonder, and I did the 6ame with him. He
said he was not afraid of me when surrounded
by his warriors. I put a bold face on it, and
said spirits were never afraid also. They gave
me a nut to sleep in, but I did not sleep that 1
night-the woman with the leg depressed my
spirits. In the morning wheu I arose and
went out at the back door, I met with a rrand
reception. Cannibals from every part of the
country had come to see me. They got accus?
tomed to me in time, and I to them, and we
became the best friends. After a few days the
Queen came to see me. She was a lovely crea?
ture-teeth sharpened to a point, body tattooed
allover. Cooked plantains were brought to
to eat. J told them j, pover at? cooked
food; for I was afraid that men's flesh had
been cooked in the same pot before. The can?
nibalism of the people is of the worst kind.
They eat the bodies, not of their enemies only,
but also of their own people. A man, however,
does not eat the body of one of his own family,
but families exchange their dead with each
other. In one case that I knew ot a corpse
five days dead, was sold for food. They like
their game high. They all agree that a woman
is tenderer than a man-not the heart merely,
but the whole body. Boys also, are tender,
but old men are very rough. I myself could
see no difference in the appearance of the
flesh of the men and that of the gorilla, ex?
cept that it w.va a little finer in texture.
"But in spite of their cannibalism, they are
in many respects the finest tribe in that coun?
try. Their houses are built low, not moro than
five feet in height, on acount of the tornados.
The walls are made of the bark of trees; they
have a little door in front and a back door, but
no windows. Polygamy is common among
them, and the more wives a man has the hap?
pier he seems to be. Slavery is known, but is
not much practiced, because men are scarce;
and they prefer to eat them rather than make
slaves of them. They work hon in the mest
beautiful manner, make knives, spears, and
very sharp axes. They are exceedingly given
to fighting, hence their fondness of working in
iron, and theil* expertness at it. Nothing from
the coast reaches them, except a few beads
and pieces of copper. They cover the han?
dles of their knives with the skin tauen from
the bodies of men. On parting, the King
made me a present of one of these; it had be?
longed to hil lather, and was covered with
"One day as I was lying in a forest, I got
waked up by an army of bashiquas-a strange
kind of ant. ' I was ?o much bitten by them
that I was half dead. An antelope had been
killed the day before by King Bongo, which I
had intended to eat. But it was now covered
with, oh millions of - nts ! They are the most
wonderful insects in the forest. They are the
nlaguo and dread of every living thing. When
they attack a village, the people have to light
fires, pour hotwater around, and strew burning
ashes around, to get rid of these little beasts.
They are really wonderful-always in single
line, and somutimes the line is miles upon
miles in length. The line is generally two
inches in breadth, and there are officers
throughout the entire length keeping watch,
so that none of these ants get ont of line. I
watched aline passing one particular spot,
and it was twelve hours before the last of those
ants had passed. And as they go through the
forest, at a certain signal they spread them?
selves out and attack everything that comes
out in their way. They will even go to the
tops of trees; and the insects and everything
else fly away before tbem. Elephants, ante?
lopes, gazelles, snakes, scorpions, all ruc away
as fast as they can. In fact, many a time have
I been warned of the coming of ines-bashi?
quas by the insects and other creatures flying
away in an opposite direction. I got ready for
them by having the fire lighted. They are
the most voracious little creatures vou can
imagine. It they found a dead elephant on
their line Of nlM'Ch they would attack it, and
in a very short time nothing would be left but
the bones. Sometimes the chiefs will have a
man tied up to a tree, an-. in an hour or two
n-thing would be left of h.m but the skeleton.
They certainly are the most voracious crea?
tures I ever saw. One singular circumstance
connected with them is that they are afraid of
tho sun. If they come to a part of the forest
where the sun is shining, they dig a tunnel
under tho spot and pass it by that means, and
so continue their march through the forest, in
single file, as before."
TTL?. DANQEES OF KEEOSENE.-There is scarce?
ly a day thal we do not find among our ex?
changes one or more accounts of explosions of
kerosene lamps, resulting in the maiming or
death of one or more persons and the destruc?
tion of more or lees property by tire. Many of
these accidents occur where there is no care?
lessness, in consequence of the adulteration of
the oil. When petroleum is properly refined,
there is but little danger if proper care be used;
but the difficulty is in ascertaining what is free
from the more volatile and death dealing sub?
stances. These are frequently mixed with the
refined oil after leaving the refinery, in order
to enhance the profits of dealsrs, and the
escape of combustible vapors frequently results
in explosions even where the utmost care is
used. Instances are recorded where this has
happen&i when the oil has not been nearer
than Beven feet from a fiie. The only safety
to the great msjoriy of those who use this oil
ie in discardirig it altogether; for there can be
no rebanee upon ita purity where the tempta?
tion to adulterate it are so great either before
i'j after it reaches the hands of the retail
^BiTnk^BlU, Stock and Bond Markst.
CHABLHSTON, March 20,1608.
During the past weak the stock and bond market
has been dull and inactive, and prices have gene?
rally declined. This decline ha9 been particularly
noticeable in South Carolina Railroads, which have
been depressed by the coming sale of the assets of
the Charleston Savings Institution.
The quotations of to-day, as compared with those
of the 13th instant, are as follows: South Carolina
Railroad Stock, six dollars lower; six per cent. boad?(
two dollars higher; and seven per cent bonds, three
dollars higher. Charleston City Stock, three dollars
lower; State Bonds (old), one dollar higher, and new
two dollars higher. In bank shares little has been
done, and Bank of Camden has fallen off seven dol?
lars. State bills have been in active demand and
have been bought by brokers at 93. City bills are 98
to par. and nine-tenths of the money now paid into
the City Treasury is m greenbacks.
South Carolina Railroad Shares were sold at auction
to-day at 32.

PHILADELPHIA UNIVERSITY OF
MEDICINE AND SURGERY.
1 npHE PHILADELPHIA UNIVERSITY OF MEDI
f _L CINE AND SURGERY was organized in 1848.
j Chartered by the Legislature, February 26. 1853.
Name changed Dy a legislative enactment to the
Eclectic .tedkal College, of Philadelphia, in 1860.
I In 1863 it purchased the Pennsylvania Medical Col?
lege, established in 1342, and the Piulad 2phia Medi?
cal College, which had previously been merged into
the Pennsylvania Medical <'ollego. In 1864 it pur?
chased the Penn Medical Univ irsity. Tho Trustees
of the separate schools united, petitioned and ob?
tained a special Act of the Lep?nature, con?obdat!ng
these institutions and cha. ging then- names to that
1 of the Philadelphia University of Medicine and Sur?
gery, March 16, 1865. AU these various Acts are pub?
lished in the statutes of Pennsylvania. The cost of |
the building and museum was over one hundred
thousand dollars. It will be observed that the Uni?
versity, as now organized, is the legal representative
of the four Medical Colleges that it bas absorbed.
It is a liberal school of medicine, confined to no
dogma, nor attached to any medical cliques, but
embraces in ita te^hjng everything of value to the
Sessions_It has two full sessions each year, com?
mencing on the 1st of October, and continuing until
the 1st of January, as its first session, and from the
1st ot January to the 1st ol April, as its second; the
two constituting one full course of lectures. It has
also a summer session, commencing the 1st April
sad continuing until August, for the preparatory
branches, such os Latin, Greek, Mathematics, Bota?
ny, Zoology. Chemistry, Anatomy, Physiology, etc.
Tickets.- Tickets to the full course of lectures $120
or $60 for each session. For the summer or pre?
paratory course $25. Graudating fee $30. To aid
young men ot moderate means, the University has
issued five hundred scholarships, which are sold to
first-course students tor $75. and to second-course
students and clergymen for $50, each constituting
the holder s life member, with the perpetual privi?
leges of the lectures, and all the teachings of the
school. The only additional fees are a > early dis?
secting and matriculating ticket each of which is $5.
The Advantage* ofScholarships.-The student hold?
ing a scholarship can enter the College at any time
during the year, attend os long as he chooses, and
re-entor the institution as frequently as deJred.
It requires no previous reacting or study to enter
the University on scholarships, hence, all private
tuition fees are saved.
Students, by holding scholarships, can prosecute
other business a part of the time.
Tho candidate tor graduation can present himself
at any time, and receive his degree as soon as quali?
In case a student should holl a scholarship and
not be oblo to attend lectures, it can ba trauslorrcd
to another, thus preventing any loss.
Parents, guardians or friends of students wishing
to purchase scholarship tor them a year or more
bet?re their attendance st tho University, can secure
them by advancing one-half the price and paying
the balance when the student enters. Physicians
and benevolent men can bestow great benefit upon
poor young men by presenting them a scholarship,
and thus enabling them to obtain an honorable pro?
The Faculty embraces seventeen eminent physi?
cians and surgeons. The University has associated
with it s large hospital clinic, wheie every form of j
medical ana surgical disease is operated on and
treated in the presence of the class.
COLLEGE BUILDING.-The Collego building, located
in Ninth-street, south of Walnut, ls the finest in the
city. Its front is collegiate gothic, and ls adorned
with em bat'.lem ep ts and embrasures, presenting a
novel, bold, and beautiful appearance. The facade
ls of brown stone, ornamented by two towers, rising
to the elevation ol eighty leet, and crowned with
an'embattled parapet The building contains be?
tween fifty and sixty rooms, all supplied with water,
gos, and every other convenience that modern im?
provement can contribute to facilitate medical in?
struction. Only Ove hundred scholarships wdl be
issued, and as two hundred and fifty are now sold
those who wish to secure one should do so at once.
Money can be remitted by express, or a draft or
check sent on any National Bank in the United
States, when the scholarship will bo returned by
mall, signed by the President of the Board of Trus?
tees, JOSEPH S. FISHER, Esq., and the Dean ot the
Faculty, W. PAINE, M. D. All orders for scholar?

GENTLEMEN : tn roply to your inquiry relative to the merits of WHANN'S SUPER-PHOS
PHATE, which, at your recommendation, I empoyed thiB 8eason upon my Cotton landa, .
would stat? that it has fully equalled, and indeed surpassed my expectations, and its applica
tion has been attended by tho most favorable resulta. I have used it in connection with th?
most popular Phosphates, and unhesitatingly give the preference to WHANN'S, which '.
regard as being (next to Peruvian Guano) the most valuable Fertilizer for Cotton that has beei
offered to the public. Very respectfully, ALLEN C. IZARD.
