"When wc hear the exultant tout
of Northern democrats over the re
cefrt elections and hear their confident
rvwcrtfoTts of their ability to hurl the
Radical wmrpers from power, In No-
tern bcr next, we can but axk, If they
really have fulth In what they say ? or
really believe that such a feat can be
accompliHhed by peaceable means?
Revolutions do not go back ward. The
Radicals see that tlio elections por
tend their defeat at the ballot-box, yet
they go on unruffled by the iridica
tions. Unruffled because they have"
made up their minds to maintain their
supremacy by force. They have con
trol of the army and the purse; the
Executive will soon be with them ;
they know that they are prepared for
war, and that thclr'opponentaare not,
and their determination Is either to
carry the election by the bayonet, or
appoint a President, declare Congress
a perpetual body, and say to the dem
ocrats help yourselves If you can I
This purpose is bo well defined by
every movement, during the two
year Just passed, that It seems Incred
Ube that any observing man has failed
to see it. No party defeat In any
State has produced the slightest
change or pause In their course. They
feel that defeat at the polls will bring
upon them a ruin so crushing, and a
disgrace so damning, that It is better
for their character to wade through
blood to victory, than to encounter
the blasting effects of defeat, and the
exposure of their consummate vil
lainy, enacted during eight years of
unhallowed supremacy. We are no
croaker, on the the contrary, hopeful
mid sanguine, yet it Is wilful bliiulnexs
not to read the near future, in the un
mistakeabie signs of a settled purpose,
back by unresisted power. A feigned
respect for the opinions of mankind,
and the forms of law may suggest the
propriety of submitting their claims
to the popular voice, under the pre
scribed forms of an election ; but with
the ballot-box controlled by the anncd
myrmidans of Radical lira, the mock
election will simply serve to add in
sult to oppression, and when the game
is played out, the usuqwrs will have
become too secure In their power to
regard the idle vaiorIngs of the tame
spirited dupes of a silly faith in public
virtue and the power of a disorganized
mnjorlty to resist an armed and well
organized minority. Numbers rarely
avail against discipline, and votes
agains muskctx, never.
Whenever a Fenian Is convicted,
in Ireland, he holds himself up as a
martyr tothecauseof llhcrtv. Among
those thus convicted, we notice that
not a few were among those who hi ml
themselves for llfty cents j)er day to
fight against the Houth, whieli, like
Ireland, is the victim of a sectional
tyranny. Yet those traitors to the
cause of liberty and political Justice,
here, have been most clamorous
agninst England, for real or supposed
Injustice to Ireland, and loudest in
their appeals for sympathy with a
cause almost identical with that
which they resisted for a pitiful pecw
niary consideration. We know not
whether to ascribe such conduct to
hypocrisy or impudence. In tit her
case, we van have no respect for those
who are doomed to suffer under F.n

M. Du ChaUlu entered and made his
bow. He is a small-sized, dark-complexioned,
gentlemanly man, and
spoke with a French accent, and not
very fluently, but in a simple, direct.
and pleasing manner. After intro
ductory remarks, explaining how he
came to visit ine country of the Faus,
I never before saw such wild men.
They were all armed to the teetli
with spears, poisoned arrows, and
knives. Their bodies were tattooed
all over: their teeth were dved black.
and they looked more like ghosts than
men. On the ground were the skulls
of dead men, and bones were scat
tered all through the streets. The wo
men were "he ugliest I ever saw, and
were miicn smauer man tne men.

saw a spirit. Tlie men did not seem
afraid, but tho women did. I saw
one ol the latter run into one of the
huts with the leg of a man Just cut
off. This made me feel uncomforta
ble, and my only consolation was,
that I wna very thin, and not worth
much for eating. At length the king
came to me, surrounded by his war
rioi. He was dressed with Uie skins
of wild Is'nsts, and hold a spear In his
nnnu. J ie looked at me with wonder,
and I did tlie same with him. He
said he was not afraid of me wheu
surrounded by his warriors. I nut
bold fuce on it, and said that spirits
were never afraid, alto. They gave
me a hut to sleep in, but I did not
sleep that night tlie woman with the
leg depressed my spirits. In the
morning, when I arose aud went out
at the buck door, I met with a grand
reception. Cannibals from all parts
of the country had come to see uie.
They got accustomed to me in time.

never ate cooked food, for I was afraid
that men's flesh had been cooked in
the same pot before. The cannibal-
Ism of these people is of the worst
kind. Thcv eat the bodies, not onlv
of their enemies, 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 wait each other, in one case
that I knew of, a corpse flvedaysdead
was sold for food. They like their
game nign. 'iney an agree mat. a
woman is tenderer than a man not
the heart merely, but the whole body.
Hoys, too, are tender, but old men
very tough. I myself could see no

flesh of the men ami that of the go

dreaming who was the principal one.

they were thought worthy of atten
