How Dealing in Human Flesh

Gen. Kirkhun, tlie Engllsh'dlrector
of tlie annj of the King of Abyssinia",
hiis snpplieil to the London Daily Tele
graph some valuable information re-
speetlng'the traffic in slaves still carried
on between the interior of Africa and
tlie Tilrktsh Empire, lie 'ays:
The Abyssinian Envoy estimates the
number of slaves annually carried off
from Africa to tlie Arab and Turkish
markets at.SO.OflO tq 90,000. Tlicse.un
happy beings are taken ajvay at agesr
ranging .from seven or eight.to sixteen
years, older men and women bein.
found more troublesome than valuable

from .the centre of tlie' continent hud
the region of the IVhlte NilutoKassalaj
and are hurried on to the'slave market

for their beanty'and fbrtheir superiori
ty to the otlier tribes. A 'strong'' boy
will sell for $90 to $100. The girls
fetch more, because they are wanted for
the harem. Traders will take away
girls when they cau get them. When a
chief makes war on another he makes
it an object to carry offas many girls
as he can. He. plunders the villages
and kidnaps the, younger natives and
sells them, retaining theiplder ones to

A SIGNIFICANT MOVEMENT.
It is'surpri3lng-wYral'A,'nold this
counti'V'has ou the affections or the
masses throughout Europe. It
seems increasingly probable that
unless the'srovernniental institutions
or the old world shall, in some mea
sure be liberalized, we shall draw
seriously on their population.
Even now there is a proposition
pending before the Commissioner
of lands at Washington, for-the lo
cation here of forty thousaridNRou
mauian Jews. A company, with a
paid-up capital- of one, and a half
million or dollars, proposes to bear
the expense of exporateon, it our
Government will furnish homesteads
for all on the public lauds. It is a
very signiticant movement.
A recent statement Trom the Au
strian war ollicers, of the various
European armies, shows that the
war-footing or the French army is
000,000 men; its present strength,
295,000, and its length or service
