Mr. Bingham, chaIrman, read the articles, but notwithstanding their importance and the solem. nity of the occasitn, it made no more impression on the senators, members or crowded galleries, than sany ordirry event. At the beginning, Mr. Bendricks reminded Mr. Wade of the tourtesy due the speak er of the House, whereupon old len took tlae int Rst inovited Mr. Colfax to a seat be side him. Senators Sprague, and Patterson, of Tenneavee, slept sweetly during the reading. Thid Stevetr stood erect for awhile with 'us col. league, but berame so exhaou'ed he dropped into his seat. Mr. Butler clutched his felt hat convul allely, aid eqiluted uoe rascally than ever, if that was psasible. t'omeroy took his newspaper; Cenkling, who prides himself on his manly beau. ty, read a book attentively; Fessendes chewed bits of paper, and Boutwell, another manager, who had taken a fresh quid before entering, was more intent on enlacting its juice than hearing 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 son yawned. while Pumner looked positively happy, as though negro su'trage was a law of the land, and as if there never had been a certain I'riuein urtnr in the legation at Washington.

The waSl behind the speakar's desk was completely ov. ered with plorw a na., illatrave oA fri. can scenery, the salals which abound in the forests of that country, and the native lahabi. tants. There might be see the meosa sgorlia, the gibbon, the ouruag-otam, the hipasee, the termite, or whie t, Nat. e villages, black ma in dihbills, and sheletoes of the gorills and his oona ,ma, plaeod idd byile for ým l don. A little afar eight l. Du Chefuinwed 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 , eflectly prostrate.

The c.d antgonismn be 1 tween Blnghsm on the one hand and Stevens anl Butler on the other, broke out afresh, partly on personal rattcvs and partly on the proposition to present additional rtilcles of impeachment. It was inally arranged that Bingham, who had re Sceived the ligheet number of vutes In the caucus, sahould be chairman of the board of managers in place of Boatwell, who had been nrged by Mesrgs. tteveus and Butler. This snuaces of the moderate SBepublicans wu more than offset by the triumph of the original impeachers in forcing the commit Stee to present the new articles of impeachment, Sone reciting the president's speeches in swinging I round the circle, and the other his declaration to I the spokeman of the Philadelphia convention Sthat aogre a an unconstitutional body,haag ing on the verge of the government.

The State department has received the follow ing letter from Mr. Burlitngame: 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 the mission.

The Eonglass Sclub row with a coxswain to steer, and the Ameri t cans steer by means of the bow oar. The Oxford p. commiatee admit that the BHarvard system is pro 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 b streams, although a course for the race might be f. ound at rsm distance from the University. They t submit "tbht it is not poheble to prove satisfac g tority the advantage of one method of operation Sover another, sad, at the same trme, ead by the n same test, to discover the superiority of one olper . ator over the other. To tmat the systems, the ep, ertor must be equal; to decade between the y operators, the methods mst be the nae." And~ o hence they decline the race, unless the Amerioan . club will adopt the ~ nglieh etyle of steering. i, ty dollars! 8Boat oUtptle sewig aehtie Striumpbnt. Highest premil eL State Fair.
