A humber of slaves, who liad claim
ed their freedom in England, wcro
bogging and starvingabout tho streets
of Loudon, and, after consultation
with some of the men thonisolyos,
Sharp determined to send a number of
tbein RS settlers lo tho roust of Afriea.
.in 1781? about 'IOU negroes wore thus
i<eut out ttrfeierra Loone, with about
sixty J'uiroueans, chiefly worn on. A
grant of land was obtained from a
neighboring chief, but from its very
infancy ibo lil I lo colony was beset
willi numerous di(}loultlOS. Disease
broke out on board the ship before tho
settlers bud even lauded and worse
still, most of tho Europeans wcro in
duced by the oller of high wages to.
take SOi'vieo willi thc slave dealers.
Things were going from bad lo
worse, when Sharp sent out, princi
pally at bis own exponSe, another ship
with suppl i os for tho colonists, and ho
subsequently succeeded in forming a
joint stock company for tho purpose of
trading with Sierra Leone. It is in thc
course of these transactions that wc

The American journalist must bo

know how not mordy to report, but
lo relaie in a racy, catching style an
accident, a trial, a conflagration, and
bo able lo make up un article of ono or
two columns upon thc most insignill
cant incident. Ile must be interest

always open, every one of his live

must be a gooil conversationalist on
most subjects, so tis to bring back from
Iiis interviews with di li?rent people a

Ho must be M philosopher, lo pocket
abuse. He must bc a man of honor,
and 1 have always found him so.
Whenever I have bogged an American
reporter to kindly abstain from men

been said in conversation with him I
have invariably found that ho kent

Thc cyclone is the largest and widest
snow plow yet built for any road,
making a path four feel, ten inches ill

velous. When the fan and organ aro

cubic feet ol' snow poi" minute. The
liar is -IS feet long, the width of tho
wheel being len feet four inches.
Within the car are three engines of
OOO horse power each, or a combined
force of 18,001) horse power. Two of
these, engines drive the fan which ex
pels (he snow. The third ono connects
direct with the auger, which draws tho
snow into the cylindrical case in
Which the fans revolve. Tho discharge
pipe is thirty-three inches square, tho
spout being fourteen feet abovo tho

After giving the name, thc next im
portant ceremonial iii nu Indian child's
lifo is that of piercing tho ears. This
ceremony is a costly one, for it is thc
custom lo give away a pony for each
bole made in the child's ears. Tho
baby is removed from its eradlo and
laid down in all ils finery, and an old
niau iii gala dress performs the rite,
and pierces the ears with a sharp
knife. The earrings are then put in
and tho ponies delivered up. It is not
uncommon lo see Indians with several
holes punched in their ears, and each
hole represents a gilt of a pony. At
the ago of len or twelve months tho
first moccasins are put, on, an occasion
ol' considerable importance in the life
of a child. About fliis lime the hair is
