A RUadred Tem.e Ag.e,
Where are all the birds that sang
A hundred years ago?
The flowere that allIn beauty sprang
A hundred yean ago?
The lips that smiled
The eyes that wild
In fiashes shoe
Soft eyes up;
Where, oh! where are Ulp ad eyes
The maiden's smiles, theleyer'ts ighs,
That lived so long ago?
Who peopled all the eity streets
A hundred years ago
Who filled the elmreb with Nees meek
A hundred years ago?
The snoring tale
Of ilster frill-
The plot that work'd
A brother's hurt;
Where, oh! where are plots ar? sneers,
The poor man's hope, the rich man's fears
That lived so long ago.
Where are the graves where dead men lept
A hundred years ago?
Who were they that living wept
A hundred years ago
By other mea
That knew not them
Their lands are tilled
Their graves are lled.
Yet nature then was jusot as gay.
And bright the sun shone as to-day,
A hundred years ago.

Mr. Bingham, chaIrman, read the articles, but

the articles in 9u~ tlon; Howard seemed to be
etui'3ing the cl.,ef justice, which was a delicate
rebuke of his ofiicious conduct in preparing pre
maturely rules for the court of Impeachment;
C'handler chuckled now and then; Reverdy John

and moade his bow. He is a sme deed, dark
complexioned, gentlemanly ma, and spoke with
a French accent, and not very fluently, but in a
simple, direct and pleasming maer. After
inatroduotery remarks explania how he
came to visit the counatry of the FPs,
he mid: "This country lIes in the moua
tals near the wester coelt of Afria,
about two dgreeo north of the equator, sad 1o
handred and ft miles from the ooast. The vii
lage (a Fan viage) stood on the top of a hill,
and when I appeared l it the people gathered
around me in multituds. They took me for a
spirit, and called out, " Look at his feet, they
have no toes; his feet ase black and his fne an
other color; what is the spirit we ee? " I never
before saw such wild men. They were all armed
to the teeth with spear, poisoned arrows and
knives. Their bodies were tattoed all over, their
teeth were dyed black, and they looked more
like ghouls than men. On the ground were the
skulls of dead men, and bones were scattered all
through the streets. The women were the ugliest
I ever saw, and were much smaller that the men.
The king did not want to me ae, beig afraid
that he shoul die if he saw a spirit. The me
did not seem afraid, but the women did. I saw
one of the latter run into one of the hats with the
leg of a man jut cut off. This made me feel an
nd comfortable, and my only consolation was that I
Ras very thin and not worth much for eat
ig. At length the king came to me
surrounded by his warriors. He was
dressed with the skins of wild beasts
and held a spear in his hand; he looked at me with
wonder, and I did the same with him. He said he
was not afraid of me when surrounded by his
warrior; I put abold fhce on It and mid that
tt spirits were never afraid also. They gave me a
hut to sleep in, but I did not sleep that night-the
woman with the leg depressed my spirits. In the
morning when I arose and went out at the back
door, I met with a grand reception. Cannibals
Ircim every part of the country had come to see
me. They got accustomed to me In time, and I
to them, and we became the best friends. After
a few days the queen came to see me. 8he was a
lovely creature-teeth sharpened to a point, body
tatooed all over. Cooked plantaim were brought
to me to est. I toM them 1 never ate cooked
s food; for I was afraid that men's flesh had been
cooked In the same pot before. The cannibalism
of thee peopleis of theworstkind. Theeatthe
t bodies, not of their enemies only, but also of their
own people. A man, however, does not eat the
body of one of hie own family, but families ex
change their dead with each other. In one case
that I know of, a corpse five days dead was
sold for food. They like their game high.
I hey all agree that a woman is tenderer
than a man- not the heart merely, but the whole
body. Boys also are tender, but old men very
togh. I myself could see no differencein the
appearance of the flesh of men and that of the
S orill, except that it was a little fine'r texture.
But in spite of their cannibalism, they are In many
respects the finest tribe in that counry. Their
houses are bailt low, not more than fire feet in
height, on accotat of the tornadoes. The walid
are made of the bark of trees; they have a little
- door in front, and a back door, but no windows.
Polygamy is common among them, and the more
wt wives a man has the happier be seeme to be. Sla
n. very is known, but is not much practiced, because
i men are scarce, and they prefer to eat them
e rather than make slaves of them. They work
r. iron in the most beautiful manner, and make
Iy knives, spears, and very sharp axes. They are
n exceedingly given to fighting, hence their fond
nent for working in iron, and their expertness at
of it. Nothing from the coast reaches them, except
a few beads and ptees of copper.. They cover
t. e bandles of their knives with skin taken from
to aeodies of men. On parting, the king made me
t.- aresent of one of these; it had belonged to his
if :~:er, and was covered with human skin. It was
r; considered a great mark of respect to receive such
a present; it was a complmet similar to tshpre
.d sentation of a diamond d box with as. These
r, cannibal tribes always fighting: and are the
as dread of all the pdbple that surround them, con
g (querlng every tribe with whom they have come in
e cortact. Some ten years ago they were some
te two hundred and lifty miles from the coast; to-day
e- they ate found within ten miles of the coast, hav
t; i;g destroyed or driven away all the other tribes
. '. tsen i tem and the ocean. What impeli them
ly to mve towards the West I could not find out.
to W ile among the lane I heard of other cannibal
in truhs atosadsthenorthwest. One day Ijourneyed
n. to that centry; they were called the Oshaibai.
.- I could see no difference between them and the
is Fans; they had the same appearance and cu*
a. tome, and their villages were similar. They told
rme that there were other cannibals beyond them.
But not feeling comfortable among them, I
ci ,L,enced to make my way towards the
- c set. lhe Fans had got accustomed to me
oe and were very sorry that I should g,, indeed,
ax rt d to persuade me to stay among them.
n We'l, at the test T left those go;d cannibals, and
ad whtn I maue off they all said I ':ust come again.
A large number of them, both men and women,
sacompanied me down as far as these tribes where
I bad been before, nearer the seas-hore. They
n camne with me as far as my friends were, I was
c nary much touched with their behacior. When
"hey pasrted from me, they all set up eh ,utiug ti
d a monotonous chanl "The spirit is gone, the
' rpitit is gine, and will be seen by uc no more.
t We have seen what our forefathers never saw,
t aid what our children will nevter see. The Spirit
is gone, is gne.'" In reply I fired a salute wth
my gun, waved my hand, and so disappeared from
i. ny good friends, the FPans. I then pased through
invariousn tribes, the Bondsa. t, Nbousha, and afew
S'thers, and asme to a place where there was a
r turibe called the Mongalana. I got sick then. I
s. am glsal to spay I never was a day sick while I was
in thle o' untry of those canntibals, and I was very
at lad of it, for one didn't know what those Fans
re. might attmrpt. Well, as soon as I got among the
Noea I resutd myself at the chief's residence
. for all those chiefs were sure to be my friends. I
imuit tell y"> that I got on the good side of the
, rmtn. snnd then everything was afe after. It is
o mi tids country also. If you have the women,
la he ladies, with you, you are sure to be safe.
Well. I got very ill then; all this country down by
the sea shore is so swampy. Day after day I
tri~ed to break the chills down by taking quinine,
,bu it rseeed to have no efftct, until at last I was

SuiNonAt, Dec. 11, 1867.
Sir-Yon will have learned from my telegram
from Pekin of my appointment by the Chinese
government as envoy to the treaty powers, and
my acceptance of the same. The facts lnrelation
t to the appointment are as follows :
a I was on the Percepy, proceeding to the treaty
ports of China to ascertain what changes our
citizens desired to have made in the treaties, pro
vided a revision should be determined upon, after
which it was my intention to resign and go home.
The knowledge of this coming to the Chinese,
Prince Kung gave a farewell dinner, at which
great regret was expressed at my resolation to
leave China, and urg6nt requests made that I
would, like Sir Frederick Bruce, state China's
dificulties, and inform the treaty powers of their
sincere desire to be friendly and progressive.
This I cheerfully promised to do. During the
conversation, Wenslung, a leading man of the em
pire, said, "Why will you not represent as -of
cially ?" I repred the saggestica playfully, and
the coaveratUon passed to other topics. Sbe
quently I was Informed that the Chinese were
most desirous, and request was made through Mr.
Brown, Chinese secretary of the Britis legation,
bhat I should delay my departure for a few days.
until a proposition could be submitted to me. I
had no further conversation with them until the
proposition was made in form, requesting me to
act for them as embassador to all the treaty
powers. I had in the interim thought anxiously
upon the subjec:, and,. after consultation with my
friends, determined, in the interests of our coun
try and civilization. to accept. The moment the
osition was formally tendered I informed my col
r lesgies of all ,the facts, and I am happy to say'
that they approved of the action of the Chinese,
and did all they could to forward the interests of
J. McLeary Brown, late Chinese secretary of

I, bally the best, on broad and straight pliees of
a water, but claim that it could not be adopted in
the narrow, winding Esglihh river, and that, there.
Sfore, they could not train for a contest on those

f. ound at rsm distance from the University. They
