V"e take the following from the St. Louis Times. Negroea are natu rally credulous and easily imposed upon The representations'xbaja to them by interested parties, that large wages and plenty of money may be' realized in the West, annually en tices thousands of these confiding people away from Tennessee and Georgia. 'Most of them experience a 1 tutter disappointment, and too late dep'ore the change they have improv iilently made : "On Snhttay afternoon, two hun dred and twenty-five colored people of both sexes and all ages and sizes arrived at Last St. Louis by the Cai ro short line, from" Tennessee A lit tle more than haif the number left in the evening for Topeka, Kas., which, was understood to be the destination of the whole body, an agent in Nash ville "Laving secured . from " seven, to fourteen dollars from each. upon the promise to provide them with homes and land in Kansas. Tha greater number, however, were not in a po sition to "continue their Journey for want of funds, and they are now left in a very pitiable condition on the island., They express the greatest indignation at the agent, and wish others in Tennessee, who contem plate emigrating to Kansas, to avoid any arrangement with him." THE STATE DEBT. We have read a recent speech qf Hon. John II. Savage, delivered at Smithville, Teun., on the subject of the State finan ces. Like everything emanating from him, it is characterized by. boldness, and uttered, no doubt, in sincerity. Dissenting as we do from his leading iut-a, we copy the following points which he insists could be maintained before the people, or an intelligent court:. First That the bouJs had been issued in violation of the constitution of the State. Second That Ihey were issued in vio lation of that legal and political maxim that "tavatioa without representation is lyrauny ." Third That they ln-gan in fraud and las.s h'i.slation and progressed in in iquity, and that there are no bona fide holders. . - - '. Fourth That they created no personal ohlig itions for ptiymeut upou any man, woman or :hi)i in t!io State. Fifth If it be admitted for the .hake .f sr. -rumen l that the L'Hslature intend ed to f-re:ite a l't-n in. -the nature of a mortgage upon the then taxable proper ly (land and negroes) of the State, it can be tdiown from the highest legal author ity that the obligation has been released and discharged. Sixth That all the acts under which J he. bonds were issued commanded . that the bonds shmld never be sold at a dis count, but in point of " facts they have been hawked, peddled, pawned and sold in and out of the State for thiity years to every petty hroU:r,that would huy or loan money-49r them. So that it is now perhaps true that there is not a single bondholder vImxIocs not hold hi bond in violation of the statute creating it. . Seventh That whenever a statute prohibits the doing of a thing, it is pun ishable by indictment, fine and imprison ment to viohije Vlho prohibition, hence the bondholder of to-day is entitled to punishment and not to payment. Eighth That the humble citizens had been promptly punished for every tri vial offense, while the pompous bond bolder has gone unpunished for flagrant violations of the organic law without so much as a reprimand or warning from our Governors. The State's Floating Indebted ness. American, asth. State Treasurer Morrow paid the lat ?50.Q00 to the Slate's loan ac- vount yesterday. 1 he only floating j liKieoieiiuess remaining is uuom j $200,000 in State Warrents, whijh the treasurer will at ohce, prpgeed to redeem.

When these things are done, the State's total iudebtedness will be ouly. ' the trifleof say between $23,000,000 and $24,000,000. M r.

Liberia declared its iude jrendence and adopted a constitu tion in 1847. He was the firt Pre) ideut of 'Iiiberia, and be occupied the oftice for four terms, from 1848 to 1856. In 1871. while Jas. Koye was President, a popular uprising took place,; the President was im prisoned, and an executive commit' iee, was entrusted, with the coveru- raeiit untif May, 1871, when Mr. Rob erts again was called to the" presi dency. Since his retirement from the office Mr. Roberta has .been, we believe, a private citizen. Dur ing his earlier residence in Liberia he established a college, of which for a time he was the president. . He was a man of fiue 'personal appear ance,' excellent address, good educa tion, and high character.

Itg forests . were filled with mastodons; megatheriums, aQd other arecand lively beasts, any of. w Inch ibought nothing of scratching himself on the siiarp pipnaeles of, a convenient Gothic church, and so toppling it over on its scores of helpless pew-holders. In the Mississippi valley, the industrious mound-builders were constantly throw-! ing up gigantic moleddlls, and planting them with earthen pots and copper hatchet?, in .the vain expectation ' that the seed thus sown would yield enor mous crops of kitchen-ware and carpen ter's tools. ' la, Kentucky, the giant "to whom the bones recently discovered in ,a Keutucky.caye are ...said,. ,to ... have be longed, strode loftily . along theturn pike, kicking the Indians and the mound huildsrs contemptuously out of the wayi. nd finally, iu Tennessee, a race of pyg niies was continually holding political meetings and resolving that mastodons, moarid-builders and giants ; should - be promptly abolished, and thai the size of J;he inhabitants of this country should , be made and kept commensurate with its commercial necessities. : It is rather oild that the existence of the Tennessee ' pygmies of. prehistoric America was until recently never ; sus pected. The name of the mastodon haa long been familiar to' every person who 'n in the least degree addicted to fowslls. His remains," in the nhape of of a plaster of Paris skeleton , with, the artist's name stamped in forehead,, are exhibited in every respectable museum, and inspire t!ie youth of America with bitter regret that the animal so beantifully adapted for experiments with: red-pepper , lozen ges has gone where the small boy ceases to trouble and the nomadic circus is at rest. The mound-builders have been the subject of scores of learned essays, iu which their identity with the Aztecs, the Chinese, the Egyptians, the Welsh, and the lost tribes of Israel, has been triumphantly shown; and of the exact' height and probable capacity for whisky of the Kentucky giants, we-' have had careful and presumably accurate statis tics. The discovery of the pygmies is, however, so very recent, that no one has as yet framed an3" theory whatever to account for their origin, "and to explain there complete extinction. ,'' J When the Kentucky giauts were dis- sKeieions 101 se'enty-nve mousand pyg- mies of the average height of three feet each. What are the three eight-foot giants of Kentucky, in comparison with ; so great a cloud of pygmies? If we may i judge from tne price usually paid hy dwarfs, a three-foot dwarf is decidedly more valuable than an eiarht-foot giant. j and if the same standard governs the ! price of fossils, the seventy-live thousand leunessee pygmies are worth fully twenty-five thousand times as much as the three Kentucky giants. While the Ktntuekiatis can present their giants to three .rminent scientific men, and ths obtaih three distinct scientific reports certifying to the enormous interest and value of fossil giants, the Tennosseeans can eupply every scienlilic man in this country . and iu .Europe with a fo.isil dwarf, and so secure testimonials with out number to the unequaled excellence of Tennessee P3rgmiu9.- Indeed, if the discoverers of the pygmies will only employ some astute piano-maker who is an expert in testimonials, to obtain for the fossil dwarfs the recognition of the scientific world, there i not. a' living scientific person- ho-will not signa cer tificate setting forth lus aumiratiou or the beauty and durability of thcpyaniieg. l been tlie identical pygmies that; accord- 1711 1 J J .
