Orr Ua'sa Cove, Libcri.i, Africa, .
Tiiurnlay, July 1, l-.VJ. )
Aceordicg to promiee, I now avail inyself of
the opportunity wbich i-. offered nn- of firwarditig
thuilettrr to yrti, in order to gite you aome facts
and the !:npre-M> n made on tne by thi* " Kepublic."
We, that i> tLe Ralph Cro-s, sailcd from Hatnptoa
1:. -..1- tn tbe afternoon of May 6, 1-'.'. and held
nearly a duc ea?t n urr.\ until wa r<>ache.l tbe lati
tude uf 16? 41/ ; wc tLcn ron down an.I made the
uioutb ofthe QfJfakaa l'.iter cn the morning of Wedue*- |
dsy. June '.', 1 -,r>-J. We had consideral.lo tinc wcatber
and loraecs'ms, but up*n tiie whole we enjoyed a de?
lightful pussa.-c. We Lail lotaof aea-ilckneas, me ..1..-J
and mun.ps. duriug our pa**age, but only one death,
which wai tbat af a cl.ihl. who die.l on tbe morn?
ing nf Thunday. May 10, and was buried in Lon. 37 40
\\ ert, Lat. M 40 IS'onh. Thu cLild died of no aiok
neaa contraitcd on ahipboar.l, but ot -onie hereditary
uutlady We made Cape Montserado ea the eveaiag
of June 12, niaking our pas<age from cape to cape iu
thirty-seven daya and ten hours.
I think it unneceasary to deacriHe the pecukaritiej
of Africa, as tbey are tutficiently known already. Then
tufficc to say that, at if BBBBl io tach casea, the Kroo
iii' ti boarded u- in iwar.n* eaj-lj ou Hunday morning,
offering tLeir terticea for scceptance. Weemployed
tix of tbem for rowing ua on thore, and thco pro
eeeded up to look after tlie conaignee of the Yeseel.
Wl f-iit U-arned that Preiideot Itohertsbad gone in the
Gorernment tesiel l.ark for Madeira, en route for
England, purposely, a* we tubacquently Vaarnt, to gite
tLe true vcr-lou of the late difficultict wuh her IJrUaa
nic Majesty'i Conrul reaiding at Monrotia.
Ycu w:ll tiierefcre be anzioua to know tbe tni* ntture
ol thoae difficrilti.-* of whicb I ipeak, and I wiil now pro
reed to give them to you. lt appears (from what vico
Preaident WUliatua aayi) that the late war had between
tl.e | isLaita (of or near Fiahfown.) and Liberiana waa
in?tigated by a Britiah trader narned Lawrence, who
advised the naattea tbat "il they, theiiatiree, would dia
poaiess tie Liberana of F Ubtawn, Bucuanan'and Trade
town be, Lawrence. wuuld be able to aell them gooda
much cheaper thnn be had beretofore dona;" he *aid in
eflert tbat tne dut-e* letied on his good* by the Liberian
Gorernment, were the cauae of hi* good* being ?o dear.
and Le further > *:.l that the Libenan Gorernment had
nct themetmiof protecUne luelf, and theretore weuld
be an eaajr Yicum ; that Great Britain and the United
dtatee mteuded tawithdraw their fnend*bip from the
aaid I.:berian*. wiirh would makethe tictory tie mare
aure ; aud :t wa* under ti:.-*e r.presentatiuna that they
went to war. The native*, aa we know, were d.foated
wuh grrat los*, bo it becarae ne^eaaarr for their aider
and alettor, Lawrence, to get out ofthe Republic aa
aoon aa poasible, aa hia prciecta were kntwu to the Li?
berian aurhcnti-.-i, who would hate tieited him wuhsuraal
puniaLmcnt It became theretore his tint buiinea* to
?evure the fatorable inUrrpoaition of Conaul llanain,
who is -,..d to hate connired i.t hi* eaeape; in fact, it i*
kccwn tfcat through La* direction* Lawreace aeeured hia
p8*-afc.' on a Bntiab maa-.)l"-war tor Engh-nd. The Lbe
rians, juaiJf incer.ae?i aaainat tbe iiigL-handed coawiuct of
Ceasul Hamon. made known their feeanca through ihe
prca*. and *A*o etiaced the deaire tWb-a exeouatur
ahould be wtthorawa. Then .. appears that Uan.un
hiinaelf became aiix.ou* for hia aafety, which wa*
ennrely unnecesaary i be therefore rrprraet.t.-. 1 to the
" Admiral of the Britiah Squadron " that be had eterr
reaton to beliete that hia life wai ia uanger under
wh,ch renreeenUtion tha " Adrnlral" was laduced to
take L-rr. Ume. and it If thought tiiat he will end^aror
to miareprrsent the arTair. The atrangeet fayt, however
cocnecteU with thi* aflair, ia the fact that thia Lawrence
ba* a w if* livtn? in Edii.a, one of the very placee he m
tecded :o destroy. and *he U yet liv-.ng tbere It ta
rtrange to *ee the effect that Llbena. baa produced on the
