When the Florid as were erected inlo a territory of the United Stale, one of Ihe earliest carve of the Governor, William P. Dutai, a directed to the intrucion and civiliaitton of the native. For thia purpose he called a meeting of the chiefs, in which he informed them of the wish of their Great Father at Washington that they should have schools and teacher Among them, and lint their children should be instructed like the chi dren of white men. The chiefs listened with their custom ary silence and decoium to a long speech setting foith the advantage that would accrue to them from Ihi measure, and, when he had concluded, begged ihe interval of a day to deliberate on it. On ihe following day, a eolemn convocat on waa held, at which one of the chiefs addressed the gov ernor in the nam of all the rest : M My brother," said he, we have been thinking ov.r the prop ai tion of ourcat Father at Washington, to send tenchera and set up schools among us. We are very thankful for the inter, at he takea in our wel fare; hut after much deliberation, have concluded to decline hia t.ffor. What will do voiy well for white men, will not do for red men. I know you white men aay we all come from the same father and mother, but you are mist ken. W.e have a li edition birld doVn from our forefathers, and we believe it, that the Great Spir t, when he Undertook to make men, made the black man ; it waa hia first attempt, and pretty well for beginning but he aoon aaw he had bungled ; n he determined to try hia hand again. He did a, and ma le the red man. He liked him much better than the black man, but stilt he was not eiactly what he wanted. Then he tried once more, and made the white man; and then he waa satisfied. You aee, therefore, that you were made last, and that i tbe reason I call you my youngest biother. . M When the Great Spirit had made the three men he called them together and showed them three boie. Tbe first waa filled wt'h hooks, and maps, and pspers; the second with bows and arrowa. knives and toraibawks; the third with spades, axes, hoe and hammer. These, my Bon. sai 1- he, are the means by which you are to live ; choose among them accordine to your fancy.' 'The white min, being the favorite, had the first choice. He passed bv the box of working loots without notire ; but when he came to the weapons for war and hunting, he slopied and looked hard at them. T he red man trrmMcJ. fur he had set hia heart upon that boi. The w'dte nan, however, after looking upon it for a moment, paaed oh, and choose the box of books and paper. The ted man's turn rame next ; and yoa may l e aure he aeixed with joy upon the bows and arrowa, and loms- hnwks. As lo the black man, he had no choice left, bul to put Up with ihe box of tools. " From thia it is clear that the Great 8ptiit in tended that the while man should leam lo re id and write; t undera and all about the moon and alara and to make every thing, even ruin nd whiskey. That the red man should he a first rate hunter and a toighly warrior, but he waa not lo learn anything from hooka, aa the Great .pint ha I not given htm any : nor aa he to make rum and whiskey, lest be should kill himseif with drinking. Aa to the I lack mm, as he had nothing but working tools, M waa clear he waa to work for the white and red man, which he ha continued to do. We must go according to tbe wiahea of lha Great Spirit, or we shall gel inlo trouble. To know how to read and wiite, is very good for while men, hut very bad for red men. It makes white men better, but red men worse ; aome of the Creeks and Cbefokrea learnt lo read and write, and they are the greatest ratcils among all the Indiana. They went on to Wabington, and said they weie gjing lo see their Great Father, to talk about tbe good of the na tion. And when they got there, they all wrote upon a little piece of paper, without the nation at home knowing anything about it And the first thing the nation at home knew of the mailer, tl.ey were called together by Ihe Indian agent who showed them a little piece of paper, which he lo'd them waa a treaty, which their brethren had made in their name, with theii Ore it Father at Washing ton. And aa they kni w not what a treaty waa, be held up the little piece of paper, and they looked under it, and lo! it covered a great extent of coun try, and ihey found that iheii brethren, by knowing how lo read and write, had sold their house, and their lands, and lha grave of their father ; and that the white man, by knowing how to trad end write, bad gained ihsm 'IVB our Great Fa her at Wahingion, therefore, that we are very orry we cannot receive leacbera among us j for reaarmg and writing, though very good tot white men, ia very bad for Indians."

Mr Dim Siat I had not returned from the country at the time your meeting was held, to which you were so kind as to invite me. Thi will ac count for my silence, and I am sorry that the presa of affiira on ma at this moment, should interfere wiih my contributing my mite for the African race, in case I houkI not meet you before leaving Lon don. I shall commit the following facts to paper. all of which are from my own obseivation relative to the American Colony of Liberia, in which you are ao much intmated, and justly ao. My opin ion, though not of much value, is, thai it promise to be the only successful institution of the sort on ihe coeet of Africa, keeping in mind ita objects, namely, that of raising the African alave into a freo man, preparing Tor the exercise of civil liberty in its vsrious branches from the Governor to the laborer, the extinction of the slave trade, and last, though not least, the teligioua and moral improvement of Africa at large. First, then, from the carriage and conversation of the emancipated slave, you perceive that at once he feels himself a free man. They one and all told me, they were men now, which they never were before, and had a prospect foi their chit. dren, not in Ihe least regretting their departure from America, on the contrary, desirous ofgotting their relations over to j' in them. 2. The affairs of the col n.y are conducted, with tbe exception of the Governor, entirely by colored men, chiefly by liber ated alivca; and Mr. Buchanan, a moat able and xcalous friend of the African, sssuird me that tbeii judicial administration would do credit to any elate in America, nd that Ihey were moat reasonable in a'l their propositions and d bates in their House of Assembly. They are all quite aware that nothing but industry can conduce to their wealth and com. fort, and practice it. Even the Africana captured and watched by the American Government, have followed tbe example set by the eolonUU, for when I vi.iled them about 3 P. M., the hottaart pail of tha day, I found them all at work on their farms. 3 No one in the remotest degree connected with the sieve trade ia allowed ever to communicate with Li berie, muuch less trade, and fioin a little affair wiib myself and occular proofs, ihey are alwaya ready to join in any expedition for the destruction of al.v factories. 4. They are preparing Missionaries from amongat themselves, and have attempted it on a small scale, but with what success I am not ready to say, not haing had an opportunity of personal inspection, but their schools do them credit, more tt peeially when their means are considered. The colonists, with low exceptions, are all mem here of churches, and I can most safely testify tha a more orderly, sober set of people I never met with I did not hrai an improper or profane espiesMon during my vikit. Spiiila are excluded in moat not all the settlements. They have formed them- -Ivea into varioua societies, such as agricultural, b 'tanical, mechanical, for promoting christian know ledge, also a Ladies' aoriety for clothing the poor, tfc. The aurrounding Africana are aware of the nature of the colony, t .king refuge when persecu led by ihe few neighboring slave traders. Th remnants of s tribe have lately fled and aettled in the colony on lands granted ibem. Between my two visits, a lapse of only a few days, four or five alavca Bought refuge from their master, who Waa about, or had sold them to lbs only factory on that part of ihe coast. The native chief in ihe neigh borhood have that respect for tha colonists, that they bate made treaties for the abolition of tbe alave trade, aa also constituted the Governor Judge iu the diaputea smongbt themaelvea, and a rsmarka. ble instance had occuned only a ft days previous to my visit. One chief submitted lo the arbitration of Mr Buchan n, though contrary lo hia own iJei of right and justice, and paid ihe fine imposed upon him. i coulJ aay much more, but my lime Joes not ad mit, and I must conclude this rambling and bur ri d account of my visit to Liberia, with thia obser vation, that I went there unbiassed, and left it with a conviction, that colonies on the principle of Libe ria ought to be established aa aoon as possible, i we wuh lo aavs Afiica, and lbs materia,! for such colonies, ( think, can only be procured fom alavea in the United States.

But the proprietor of the Dan ville woika, having made . the discovery, they have determined upon constructing their rcfineiy in the j &e! region, and from the abundance of ore that is found alongside of the coal, it will not be long lc fore the entire istablishments for smelting and re fining, will be found st tbe mouth of the mines.

Miner i' Journal. A Shark Story. Aa an offt to the ship news given a few ka since, fiom the bow la of John 8hark,lhe New Or leans Picayune tells the following story : Once upon a time, when the packet ship Corio lanua waa returning from Liverpool to New Voik, the carpenter, a very worthy man, wss taken sick, snd after a brief illness, expired on shipboard. He had an intoreating son, whn waa hia assistant as ship carpenter, and the boy loved his fa'hor with the moat tender and filial afTection, The poor youth's heart was almost broken at the lots of hia parent, and no persuasion coulJ induce him to leave the body. The usual preparations for a funeral at aea were mado ; the poor carpenter waa mwoJ up in hia winding sheet, and wiih htm waa put an old grind atone, hatchet and chisel, to carry him down to I.U long rest in the ocean. The poor boy grew Irantic when hia father waa about to bj committed to the waves, and was obliged lo b. held off by lha Bailors. At lenglh, just aa the fatal lurch of the ve;el waa taking place, thoboy with the a length of a maniac, broke from the sailors and dashed himself upon the body at the very moment it Waa si ding over the ship's side. Il waa too late lo save b in. vnd ding ing wildly to the dead body of his father, Ihe hap. les boy was seen to make one swill plunge, and disappear forever down, down into the eternal ca verns of the mighty ocean. This was in lat. 07 long. 79, which was duly eriti red on the log book. The Coiiolanus arrived atNsw Yoik, completed all ber bu.iness prepara tory lo her uext trip, and Sided sgain for Liver pool.
