A number ol' slaves, who had claim- i
cd (heir freedom in England, wero
bogging ami starving about tlio streets
of Loudon, and, aller consultation
willi some of Um men themselves,
Sharp determined to send u number of
thuin ss settlers to tho coast of Africa,

.cut out to*&iorra Loone, with about
sixty Europeans, ohiolry worn ou. A
[(raitt of land was obtained from a
lieighboring chief, but from ils very
infancy the little colony was beset
with numerous dillloulties. Disenso
broke out on board the ship before Ibo
settlors had oven lauded and worse
still, most of tho Europeans word in
duced hy tho oller of nigh wages to.
talco sor vico with tho slave dealers.
Things woco going from bad to
worse, when Sharp sent out, princi
pally at his own expense, another ship
With supplies for tho colonists, and bo
subsequently succeeded in forming u
joint stock company for the purpose of
trading with Sierra Leone, lt is in the
course of tlieso transactions (hat wo

After giving the name, the next im
portant ceremonial in an Indian child's
life is that ol' piercing tho ears. This
Ceremony is a costly ono, for it is tho
Custom to givo away a pony for each
lade made m tho child's cars. Tho
l-aby is removed from its eradlo and
hud down in all its finery, and an old
man in gala dress performs tins rite,
and pierces the ears with a sharp
knife. The earrings are then pul in
ami tho ponies delivered up. It is not
uncommon to see indians with several
holes punched in their cars, and each
hole represents a gift of a pony. At
tho age of ((-ii or t wel ve months tho
liest moccasins are put on, an occasion
ol' considerable importance in tin*, lifo
ol' a child. About (his limo the hair is
cul. for the. li rsi time. Among the
Omahas nu old man lakes a little lock
ol' hair from tho lop of Ifyb baby's
head, which is put ti way tfmong too
(nbal archives. The father then cuts
tho hail- in tho symbolic manner,
which is di neron I willi di li?rent gens.
