We are without capital; mtney is scarcely to be had ; the price of cotton our great staple is distress ingly low; and yet the cost of living is unreasonably, ridiculously high. What ever is produced among us is cheap; all that we have to buy is dear." tar The British army is very costly. In India it amounts to 250,000 men, at an annual cost of ?85,000,000. Elsewhere in the British empire it is 120,000 men, at an annual cost of 175,000,000. The navy costs annually f 50,000,000. The total expenditure for army and navy amounts to f 210,000,000 annually, or twice the French expenditure for the same purpose. r From all that we can gather, says the Georgia Citizen, in a late trip south ward, the most deplorable state of deati tution and prospective bankruptcy stares the people in the face.

Travels la Equatorial Africa. The following account of bis travels through Africa, by Mr. Ed. Du Chaillu is extraoted from an address dolivered in Louisville on the 21st : In the countrv I alwavs traveled on foot, and made large collections. I stuffed and brought out more than two thousand birds, of which sixty were new to science. . I killed one thousand quad rupeds, ef which more than two huudred were stuffed by me and sent home, with more than eighty skeletons. About thirty nt these quadrupeds were new to scienne When I returned to New York, in 1851), I had also twenty-one gorilla skins ai.d skeletons, besides chimpanzees and col lections. of insects, reptiles and shells. I need not toll you how difficulty it was for me to transport such collections. Now I will try, to the best of my ability, to give you a bird's-eye view of the physical geography of the country I have explored, and o( some of the tribes which inhabit it. Mv explorations have demon strated that Equatorial Africa, from the west coast, form a belt of impenetrable lunule as fur as I nave been, tins im mense forest did net stop there, but was seen as far as mv eyes could reach, and the natives had never heard whero it ended. The breadth of this gigantio forest extends north and south of the rouator two or thrco decrees on each side. Now and then prairies, looking like islands, are seen in the midst of the diirk sea of everlasting foliage; and how irratefullv mv eves met them no one can conceive unless ho has lived in such a solitude. At a certain distance from the coast the mountainous regions beyond it rise almost parallel with it. This range of mountains seems almost to gird the whole of the west coast of Alrica. lie tween these mountains and tho sea tho "country I have explored i.i low and marshy and several rivers are found, tho principal ones being the Benito, the Muni, Mexias, Gaboon, Nazareth, Monday andFernand-Vaz. The four northern rivers are short, on ac count of their sources being on the first table-land. The Nazareth, the Mcxies and the Fernand-Vaz are formed by the river Ogobai, which is formed Ly the Hembo Okando and Hem bo Ngonyai. Tho lowland is alluvial, and has no doubt been formed in the course ot time by the washing of a deposit coming from the table-lunds. llow tur eastward this immonse belt of woody country ex tends further explorations alone can show, but I suppose it will be seen to he more than 1000 miles in length; in deed I should not be surprised if it reached the lake regions ot Eastern Africa- The Mexias and Nazareth are only ouVlets of the Ogobia river, which also throws a portion of its waters into the Fernand-Vaz, chiefly through the Nponloungy. Thus those three rivers are in tact moutns oi tne vgooia, ana they form, with the intervening lowlands (which are undoubtedly alluvial depos itl an" extensive and very complicated network of creeks, swamps an i dense forests, for which I have proposed the name of the " Delta of the Ogobia " My exnlorations in this labyrinth were ex ceedingly tedious, and resulted in the knowledge that this large tract .J en tirely uninhabited by human "wings ; that during the raiuy seasons, when the rivers and their divergent creeks are swollen, the whole country is overflowed, and that the land is covered with im mense forests of palm, there being found noneof the customary mangrove swamps. Land and water are tenanted only by wild beasts, venomous reptiles and in tolerable swarms of mosquitoes. In this great woody wilderness man is scat tared about and divided into a great number of tribes. I found, unrl I was struck by the ab aenee of these species of animals which are fouBd in almost every other part of Africa. On reflection 1 did not wonder at this, for the country I now visited was wholly unlike those parts mat, nan Deen explored before. I found neither lion, rhinoceros, zebra, giraffe or ostrich; the several varieties of antelopes, too, although found everywhere else, in Africa, were here not to be seen. The forest, thinly inhabited by man, was still more .1 1 . i -.J L I . V an1 luinty inuttuimu uj iwnok a.uw then bv the side of the wild man roamed tho ope, among which class of animals there are several varieties, chief among which was the savwge gorilla, who some times destroyed the plantations of the native and sent hunger into his home hold. There were no beasts of burden, nn hnrso. no camel, no cattle, no donkey man, or rather woman, was the beast of burden. Often after traversing miles withont hearinc the sound of a bird, the chatter of a monkey or the footsteps of a gazelle, or the bumming noise ot in sects, the falling of a leaf or the gentle murmur of some bidden stream came only upon one's earsvo break the dead ness of this awing silence and disturb the hushed stillness of the grandest soli tude man could ever behold or intrude upon a solitude which often chilled me, but which was well adapted for the great study of nature, In this country the explorer has continually to fight against hunger and thirst, and starvation often stares him in the face. The foreBtg, which have been resting for ages in their gloomy solitude, seem to be even unfa vorable to the rapid increase of the beasts that are their inhabitants. Still worse than hunger, however, was the wretched climate, and I really could not tell you hew often I was prostrated by fever and sickness; but amidst the perils I had to endure I was sustained by an enthusiasm which cannot describe, ( felt that I was the pioneer of the country, and my whole soul was engaged and wrapped up in the work I had undertaken. Days passed pleasantly when siukneiidid not confine me in a horizontal position, and now and then was rewarded by the discovery of a new bird, a fresh animal,' or something else; and following up these I forgot the hardships I had previously passed through. The farther I went into the interior the higher roe the level of the country. I crossed four mountain ranges which ran in a direction of the com pat from the northeast to the southeast, and there' n still fur ther ranges cf mountains, running east ward. In Africa, as id most tropical countries, there are two seasons the rainy season and th dry or hoj season. The former begins in September and lasts until Mar; in the farther interior, how ever, I fund that it rained all the yar roiajii The dry insoi commences abo?1. the middle f May in the part of the country lying near the tea and lasts until September. The dry season pro gresses, as it were, from the west and the rainy season from the eat. North of th equator the rains appeared to come, from the northeast, and sooth of the equator they came almost always from the east. The rainfall during the whole year in Equatorial Africa i 225 inches; but as it rains, as I observed before, more iu the in terior than on the coast, I have no doubt the rainfall iseven greater than this calcu lation. The greatest fall of rain I ever observed in the twenty-four hours was seven and a half inches. Two or three degrees of latitude make an enormous difference in the line of the rainy or dry season. Longitude also affects the sea sons, although in a less degree. I think these differences of longitude and lati tude have been rather overlooked in ac counting for the supply of water to the Nile. In the interior, as I said before, there seemed to be no disiinct seasons, a we had rain all through the dry sea son, but it was not very heavy, and unaccompanied by thunder. ' The torna does generally come from the northeast or from the east, and are very common during the months of February, March and April. The traveler is warced beforehuud of the approach of these tor nadoes. The sky toward the horizon becomes black, and this blackness sud denly increases, the wind, which has beeu blowing up to that lime, suddenly ceases and everything is still; the birls (ly about as if they had received a sud den fright, the beasts of the forest appear uneasy ot a sudden, under tne black clouds arises a small white spot which seems to chaso all the dark clouds before it The wind comes with an irresistible, force. This lasts for only a few minutes, and then comes a doluge of rain, ac coaipanied by lightning and heavy thunder, which latter seems to shake the very ground under your feet Just as the tornado bursts on. you you cau see the magnetic needle vibrate. In the drv season the wind blows very hard for about three or four days at the time of the new and lull moon tn eacb niontn. I never saw but twice during my last journey, which lasted about twoycars, the sky entirely clear and free from cloud, and on these occasions it was not clear longer than for the space of an hour, and even then all around the lower parts of the horizon were hazy. The more I went into the interior the mure cloudy became the day, and often I had to pass night after night without being able to take an astronomical observation. At that time of the year, indeed even along the sea coast the sky remains cloudy and over cast, that is, in the months of June, July and August Although I was now travel ing under the equator, it did not by any means follow that the beat ot the atmos phere was greater than in other coun tries more temperately situated. The cause ot this absence of excessive heat was owing to the great moisture of the country arising from the excessive rain fall, and also the large forests which filled nearly its entire extent This highest temperature I have observed in the interior was during the months of May and April, when Fahrenheit s ther mometer stood at a , Bnd this, ot course, was in the coolest placeunder a ve randa in one of the villages I passed through At that time I made simulta neous observations nf the temperature in the forest, where, I might say. the sun never penetrated to the ground in eonse quence of the dense foliage, although an occasional ray of light might pierce through the leaves now and then. From ninety eight degrees Fahrenheit in the village the thermometer sank to eighty seven degrees in the forest, while in the broad, glaring heat of the sun it marked 1481. Unfortunately, "when the tem perature of the atmosphere stood at ninety eight degrees in the shade I bad been robbed of my sun thermometer, but I have no doubt that the power of the sun's heat would have caused it to rise to 155 or 160. The maximum heat of the sun was at one o clock, the maximum beat of tbe temperature of the atmos phere at three o'clock; the heat of the sun at ten a.tn. and at bve p.m. was nearly the same, and varied from IIS" to H5". trom one o'clock to three o'clock the heat of the atmosphere remained about the same, and did not vary, under ordinary circumstances, one degree. Ibe lowest temperature I have ever noticed was in the month of July, when the thermometer marked only sixty-four degrees. I also observed when I was in the Asbango Land for a few days that it never rose higher than seventy-two de grees. The warmest months of tho year were December, January, February, March, April, and especially the latter. In May the weather becomes gradually cooler, and the coldest mouths were July and August. Besides the study of natural history, I carefully stue' ed the habits of the natives with whom I came in contact and asso ciation. What struck me first was the scantiness of the population and the great number of tribes speaking different dialects and tongues. Tribes bearing a different name consider themselves an altogether separate nation, althongh speaking perhaps the same identioal tongue- All the tribes were divided into distinct clans, each clan independent of the other, and ofiea at war with one an other. North of the equator almost all the tribes are exceedingly warlike, espe cially those that are cannibals, who, be sides being naturally brave, are tbe most beautiful iron workers I have ever seen. South of tbe equator the tribes are of a peaceful character, usually. They have a sort of rude loom, with which they weave an elegant species of cloth out of the fibers of the pal TO tree. The villages of these tribe were very clean ; tobacco was also very plentiful, as also tbe can nibti indicat, or wild hemp. In the midst of these tribes, south of the equa tor, I discovered a raoe of men of small stature, whose average hight did not exceed fiur feet three inches to four feet six inches. The fprms of gov ernment of all the various tribes were strikingly similar, whether they were man-eaters or not I was particu larly struck by the mild demeanor gen erally of the chiefs, who teetn'd more like fathers of the various tribes than tbeir ruler. la kiig or subject has a right to kill another. Killing by acci dent is aot understood, but tne strict Mosaic law, "an eye for aa eye and a tooth fer a tooth," is held to be in all its exactness; and a council of elders is necessary before any one is put todeaih. Questioning the people abont the put, I found that the year cone by was a sort of deep sea to them, in which memory was buried. They had no record of it, and d;d not care, and even teemed tor prised wba I wished lo know of tbeir noait- Each village h i its chief, hence kings never ohta. n adiv.-1d power over large tract of country. The hoot of a i chief or ! J-r it not better in any re- I rpect than that of hit ceig&bor, and the despotic, form or government is entirely unknown. Polygamy, slavery,' and witch craft exist wherever I have penetrated. In this great forest and in the mountain recesses man is what wo may t-all prim itive. No trading caravan from the East or from the West, from the North or from the rluuih, bos come lo him; no white man lias been in hi midst; no " fire-water" hris reached him ; he is shut out from the world around bim, and has been left to the devices of his own untu tored heart. The few individuals who leave tbe interior country for the set shore never come back to tell their old tribe of the white man and the outer world ; the path is closed ; there is a gulf between the seashore and tbe interior, but not between the interior and these. Tbe religion ot the prophet Mahomet has been unable to make headway against the impenetrable forest and its savage inhabitants all it primitive nature, where civilization it undreamed of and the white man and commerce are as yet strangers. The lecturer concluded his vory inte resting narrative by referring to the go rilla: Tbe gorilla was the wildest beast, the lecturer said, which he bad ever known. It lives in the wildest and most unfre quented jungles, and never visits the hab itations of men, notwithstanding the tales to the contrary. Tbe lecturer had tried hard to tame tbe young ones, but never had been able to do so in the slight est degree, nor could he induce them to cat anything except the wild plants of their native woods. They starved them solves to doath invariably when such fiod could be not reached. lie tried to trans port one. to England alive, and procured a large quantity of berries and roots, but the latter it could not cat, and the former lasted only a mouth, in consequence of decay, and in tbreo days after it died from actual starvation, refusing to touch a particle of anything on board the ship. The average bight of the male is from five feet six to five feet eight inches, and of the female, four feet five to four feet eight inches, the tallest males he ever saw not being over six feet two inches. Tbe arms are very long, reaching to the knees, the legs short and tbe trunk very long in proportion- to tbe human form. The body contains the same number of bones as that of man, although those of Ibe spinal column are differently ar ranged, there boing one' less cervical vertebra, and one more pair of ribs, which is aocounted for by the fact that man has had one pair taken from him. The eyes are gray, and are near tbe top of the forehead, deep set in prominent sockets, and wide apart: tbe nose has no bone, and is not at all prominent, the jaws and froat teeth being excessively so. 1 1 has very long caniue teeth, but these', in tbe adult, are worn down, by gnawing the bark of young trees to get at the sap, of which they a e fond. The hands are immense and the palms as hard as iron, and the knuckles very large. Tbe foot is formed like that of the monkey, the great toe being separate from tbe others. The jaws possess great strength and are able to crack tbe hardest nuts, which would require a smart blew of a hammer. Tbe brain- of the adult male ranges from twenty-eight to thirty four cubio inches, or but very little larger than that of the young one, which averages twenty-two inches, though tbe head of the former increases to four times the size of the latter. The average size of the brain of the negro is fitiy-eight cubio inches, which is the next lowest, while the white man ranges as high as one hundred and ten to one hundred and twenty. This tbe lecturer argued as proof that there is no human or mental development in the gorilla. In form he is something like a man and that ia nil. K. G. CRAIG & CO., 379 Hsic st.
