Sept. 4, 1841, 132-12U
From the African Repository.
The Interior of Africa.
"There is a wilderness more daik,
Than groves of fir on Huron's shore."
Few countries have been less unexplored
for wise and benevolent purposes than the
Continent of Africa. It may be termed the
"great unknown, a perfect "terra incognita,"
at least so far as the number of its inhabitants
is concerned, and any intention to ameliorate
ted for their manufacture of cloths, plain and
dyed, which are the best in Africa. They
have an export trade consisting of ivory, in
dieo, ostriche4 camels leopard's skins, bees
wax, mats and sandals, in the manufacture of
which they are said to be unrivalled. Kab
bah has a large market tor which caravans of
merchants come from the Houssa country,
from Soccatoo, from Kauo, and from Tripoli.
"The cloths which they manufacture, and
the tobes and trowsers which they make," are
most excellent, and would not disgrace an Eu
ropean manufactory; they are worn and valu
ed by kings, chiefs and great men, and are the
admiration of the neighboring countries which
vainly attempt to imitate them. Wc have al
so seen a variety of caps which are worn sole
ly by females, and made of cotton interwoven
with silk, of the most exquisite workmanahip.
The people arc uncommonly industrious, both
males and females, who are always busy ci
ther in culinary or in other domestic opera
tions. In our walks we see groups of people
employed in spinning cotton,- others in ma
king wooden bowls and dishes, mats of vari
ous patterns, shoes, sandals, cotton dresses,
caps and the like; others busily employed in
fashioning brass and iron stirrups, bits for bri
dles, hoes, chains, fetters, Sec, and J others
again in making saddles and other horse ac
coutrements. Tho generality of tho people
arc well behaved; they are hospitable' and
obliging to strangers, they dwell in amity, with
their neighbors, they live in unity, peace and
social intercourse with lhemselv.es." i
Such is the description given by Lander of
these people." It is doubtless heightened by a
desire to make an agreeable picture, or by the
force of the contrast between them and the
most of the other parts of Africa. ' The des- i
cription is no doubt faithful in the general, as
it is substantially given by all travellers 'who
have visited them. - ?
We might here stop to inquire what is it
that makes such a wide difference between
these islanders and their distant neighbors?"
They spring from the same general stock, their
color is the same, their island is not large,
only about fifteen miles long by three broad.
The soil is not unusually rich; when the river
rises it .is overflowed, and the houses stand in
the water. No missionary has been among
them; their religion is idolatrous. They have
had little intercourse with any civilized people,
or educated race. Where then lies the secret
of their superiority to their neighbors? The
answer is found in their peculir condition.
1l hey are not torn and rent by the slave trade.
They are secure from aggression and oppres
sion. We aro told that the "Chief of Zago-
zhie, the king of the dark waters," has a fleet
of six hundred canoes, and fears no invasion.'
His people are brought up to the water, they
live secure in person and property within their
wooden walls; they are the only ferrymen, and
all the trade of the river is in their hands. They
are a Kingdom and a nation ot themselves.
and unlike any of their neighbors.
Ine following sketch of daily life at Coolfu,
by Capt. Clapperten, is worthy of attention.
It shows that they have advanced far in artifi
cial habits, and are far from being satisfied
with the mere supply of the more importunate
wants of nature:
"At daylight the whole household arise ;
the women begin to clean the house, the men
to wash from head to foot ; the women and
children are then washed in water, in which
the leaf of a bush has been boiled called Bam
barnia ; when this is done, breakfast of cocoa
is served out, every one having their seperate
dish, the women and children eating together.
After breakfast the women and children rub
themselves over with the pounded red wood
and a little grease, which lightens the dark
er earns tneef, and from which; tt! ller
ones radiate. ' It is, however,' mu& fcfrjed "
by conquests and invasions of various kinds
-civil war often prevails and insurrections. -There
is nothing like a settliconstitution'
or form of government, oir c' le - code of
laws. Capt. Clapperton izns us J; :
- " That there are hee besides : tfie daily
market attended by the t bifefnts, two niar-
kets held weekly, tr " Ve resorted to byf '
strangers. Tlfo iirwheir attrtction may7
be thus explained: from Bbrnou, - far to the
east ; from CotllYai66ri, . Zamfra, "and the; '
borders ot tne cscn on tne norm ;. from Jf ar-
riba and the CSd Coast: westward ; and from
Benin and Jabdo and the furthermost part of:
Nyfle tQ &e : south'. There resorts to' this V
market parties of regular .merchants,b'ringihg
the produce of their several countries for sale, - -.
as for instance, salt from (ho North'; red 1
wood, peepers, and European cloths from the. .
South ; kolia and goora BUtsgoldy Woollen -cloths
auct printed cottons, br9s and pewter ..
d ishesj rtheu- ware, and muskets, from tho '
western coast ; f horses, ; nafron, - on wiought
silk, undyed tobes, front BornoiY besides a -'
variety of crticles which find their way across r
the desert."' -Yenitian beads, Maltese. swords,
Italian' lookmg-glasses, gams, ! arid ,scented
woods of the; east? silks, turbans and funics
of chocked silks, and linen from Kgyjit, and
many tnore,' all of which are to be had at Cool
fu, and meet with a ready sale. Some of utese
merchants erect tents fot themselves outside
the walls; where they sell their wares :' others
send them by their slaves to the market, and
rounu to me uinereni nouses; oiners entrust
them to brokers, of whom there aro many in
town, both male and female others live in
the houses of their friends.' And besides
these regular merchants, there are a great
number of petty traders, chiefly women, who
come rrotn the towns lying : to the West of
Niger m Yarribah, and Borgoo, many days
journey distant, carrying then goods on their
oeaus, anatramngai tne several markets as
they pass. These lodge in tEre town', and;
while they attend the markets daily, support
themselves by spinning cotton during tne if
spare time. As soon as they have sold viat
they have, and bought what they want, they
return' to their homes again. The inhabi
tants likewise, (not excepting the artizans
and manufacturers, of whom there are many,)
are mostly engaged iw buying and' selling.' '

well organized effort to explore and examine
the interior almost hopeless.
The influence which the commerce carried
on with the northern parts of the continent by
the Arab and Moorisa merchants, who come
across the Great Desert, has exerted on the
natives, may be adverted to as an illustration
of what we mav exnect from our operations
