Stanley's Latest Work,
Mr. Stanley arrived in Paris much
improved in health after his journey of
nearly forty days from St. Paul de Loan-do,
and he leaves this afternoon for
Brussels, where ho will niake a report
upon his mission and his labors in Africa
during tho last three years and a half
to the Secretary-General of the International
African Colonization Association
This body was formed at tho instance of
the enterprising King of the Belgian,
snoitly after the close of tho Paris Exhibition
in 1878; and tho fhst act of tho
King after assuming the Presidency of
the society was to send for thq young
etfplorernnd to ask him if he would put
his experience and energvinio the labor
of establishing stations along- the tracts
on the "Dark Continent'1 where settlements
were most available and likely to
b'ing forth gpod fruit for civilization.
After due reflect I n Stanley concluded
to accy t the kiiid pffer, which Wiis

main expedition by various geographical
and learned socieMe. Mr. Stanley had
told thoassopiation that the Congo River
was tho main avenue of entrance to
Central Africa, and that, so .soon as, the
dillicnl'ie of getting around the great
cataracts wore surmounted and steamers
wore s"t afloat on the Upper Congo, tho
results for both civilization and commerce
would be c
The young therefore left for
Africa for tho third tim, jn January,
1878, and since that timo has been
faithfully occupied in building roads
around the falls, in organizing stations,
each one of which is solidly fprtifiod,
supplied with rough but comfortable
dwellings, and kept stocked with provisions
and clothes from Europe. Guns
awl ammunition do not form any considerable
part of tho outlit; for Mr.
Stanley's boast U that one can go anywhere
in the country which he has settled
up anned with nothing more
than a cane. Tho natircs look
upon him a? a kind of demigod ; for they
have discovered that civiliaMon, to
which thov at first felt such a dislike,
means retting more food to eat, and
getting it easier than in tho old times.
Lint evening tho exnlorer gave me a
picture quo description of a banquet
which he gave some rime ago to the 500
blacks, and twenty eight white3 directly
and indirectly interested in thee
scheme. Tho natives had never
eon such a baronial festival before:
Stanlev had purposely determined to
give them a Garantuau spread which
chev should to the end of
their lives. There were quarters of beuf
roasted whole, vast wooden tubs filled
with ric ; buttqr and cheu&e from Europe;
niiik from the cows, which are
kept at each oi the stations; game in
slacks and pyramids; and fruit in colossal
heaps. The men wore amazed,
and sat, until the order tp -begin eating
was given, with their fingers on their
lins, and in a dazed, rapturous mood.
When theyf,had the signal ..to "falto,n

impressions in favor of
the white man,
14 We have done wonders since I last
wrote-you,11 said Mr. Stanley; "and our
greatest accomplishment is the building
and rpofing of a long, handsome, well-arranged
two-story ncmse. The second
story is looked upon by the primitive
populations, in the neighboring villages
as something mysterious and magical
almost as a proof of divinity. I have
been living in a tent for about two years,
and have found it usually very comfortable;
but wo wish to get solid buildings
put .up as rapidly as possible. Well"
he added w$th a sighs "the road is buUtt.
and is as nearly perfect as such a thing
in such a new country can be. The stations
are established, and no one of
them is in the. slightest danger of being
assailed. I have.'done my part, o,Jbhe
best of my ability, and my conscience ;is
clean; and now I turn to the association
and say to it, What will .you do

A Commercial Crisis in Russia
Fears are expressed in Russia, at fche
probability of another severe commercial
crisis similar to that of 1873. -The
main cause is the remarkable drop an
the price of cprn which has rmuted
during tho Jast few wepks, from, the
abundance bf the, harvest in Western
Europe And America. A little while ago
merchants wore, readily Jmying up wh.eat
at the rate oj a ruble and, forty copecks
(2s. lOd.) the pood (thirty-six po.unds),
giving a quarter of that amount in cash
as hard tnoney to clinch tho bargain.
Suddenly the demand for corn from
abroad ceased and the price dropped
heavily, until a few days ago 85 copecks,
or ls.8d., per pood was being refused
on the exchanges of Russia. In this
manner there are thousands of merchants
in Russia who hae bought corn
for 2s. lOd. the pood, which they can
not. hope to sell for more than 18 pence,
or little more than h df that amount..
How enormous the losses must be in
consequence is illustnved by a remarkable
piece of gonerositv on tho part of
Count Branit.zky. All the corn on his
estates, ajnumting to 800.000 poods
or over tons, had been sold for a
ruble and -10 conceits the and
when he found that tho buyers could
only obaiu 8) eoueoks for it in tn market,
he released them from their contracts,
thus relmq fishing .")0,000 at a
stroke. Few persons, however, arc of
themaguanim us disposition of Count
Brauhzky, and if tho present low prices
prevail throughout tho month tho result
most, he aim st universal bankruptcy in
the Russian o rn trd. Already, no-co:
ding to the Kioff correspondence of
tho ( l'sn the baukruolcies in that
province amount to fi,000 OuO rubles
althmh the crisis has hi dlv com-mo
cod there yet. The Novo Vremta,
in appealing to tho Government for
promot avSHtaneo in the muter, declares
that tho compo ition of Vmeuca in
theorn trade ha now attained such
proportions as to menace the commercial
fabricof RiHsi a wiMi ruin. But, in
this instance at least, it wouhi apoar
that another cause ha' been at work
besides, transatlantic rivalry. Fearing
that the Egyptian conflict wju.d
into a serious E iropoan war, and
thatihe harvest in Egypt would h lost,
the corn importers of Western Jjhirone
made largo purchases of Russian corn
durjng tho summer, thus causing pricos
to rise to an .abnormal extent. Ignorant
of the real reason of tho demand,
the buyers in Bnssia went on making
extensive purchases , until the-.;Sudden
cessation of orders led thomitinio,(ieir
present predicament. Imddri News.
