These wild speculations arc calculated
to amuse rather than instruct. They
pander to national vanity, hut lllcv mis
lead. Without ipustioil, the I'lliled
States one hundred years hence will
have, it' it be in existence at iliat time, a
vastly increased popuint ion. A reat
portion of its territory is at present un
inhabited, very much o( it only partially
occupied; and nearly all ol it is fertile,
healthy and abounding in resources. lint
especially do the estimates of negro in
crease seem to be visionary and liiisus
taincd by statistics. They have increased
slowly in the Northern States where
they have been free for t line quarters ot
a century or more. When they become
more crowded than they are now in the
South, where lare increase is assumed
to exist, they too will reach their limit,
unless indeed there is radical change in
habits and morals. In the tropics, fav
ored by nature and independent of labor,
they may go on to multiply without lim
itation. In the temperate region of the
1'nited Statts, with its alternations of
winter and summer, heat and cold, the
commpulsion of industry, thrill and sys
tem, thev must encounter the conditions
imposed upon tlie whitenian wtili less ca
pacity to meet them. Thecffectsof a pop

The calamity of Johnstown in June last,
b-'sides arousing the most aggravated
sensation of horror throughout the world,
alsii touched the chord of human sympa
thy, as it had hardly before been touched.
The story of the appalling loss of life, of
the agony of survivors, of the desolation
of homes, of utter ruin and desolation, of
penury, starvation and disease made ap
peals so eloquent that they were every
where promptly, generously and liberally
resptnuled to. Never were contributions
so lare, never were they so universal,
and the whole world for once felt drawn
into the bonds of a. common brotherhood
where all mankind hail the consciousness
of do iut; unselfishly a good deed. The
contribution was so ample, and was so
promptly made, that while all knew that
pecuniary or material aid could mil dry
the tears of sorrow or assuage the aj
nics oi Vvief. yet they believed full pro
vision had been matk to meet present
physdea. needs and provide the steps to
slow, but firm n.eupvKli'u. Net it lie
came apparent months ul;o that some
thing was wrotiL;, that sullcrmg was
only partially alleviatetl, that Hie boun
tiful supplies ot inoue comimlUd to tin
judgment of committees weir not dis
bursed anil that the gciien tis bcnelac
lionsol the world were, withheld. There
was still sutfering, almost priva
tion, perhaps tolerable during thej
opcti mouths of summer and the mild j
aitlumn sc.soin, but unendurable when)
winter would come. Action in tlie work j
ot charily lias been so long postponed,,
assigned causes for delay so frivolous or j
in tenable, as to suggest, what is charged
pciilv by sonic of the pi ess, fraud,
.vaste, imsnppropib-tion, and the con
version ol a saei cd fund to the uses oi

this we know nothing except that an ex
tension has been found to the already
large like Victoria Nyana. a new body
of water w ith an area estimated tin 20,
'Joii square miles. This great extent
nearly approaches that of Lake Sujierior
iil'.oiiii miles; and if formerexploration
in that region has correctly defined areas
and distances, we can hardly imagine
room tor so large a body of water lving
so long undiscovered when such persistent
effort hasbeen made to connect the upper
end ol Victoria Xynnza with the sources
of the Congo. T his great lake is in fact
the mother of the Nile. And we had been
under the impression that exploration
had exhausted all its resources before the
last expedition id' Stanley. Hut Alriea is
a vast com incut, ami in descriptions of
research through it we form imperfect
conception of sie and distance trom the
exceedingly small scale in which the
whole continent is represented on the map.

space not very much larger than ail open
With the exception ot the new informa
tion acquired of the geography of an
interior, only a generation a ago
marked in the map ol Alriea as "un
known or unexplored region," we do not
see the immediate gain. Itut, connected
with the present tleterinination of several
luiropean powers to take lasting foot
hold on the continent, and cutting loose
from the coast to which they hud con
fined themselves, strike boldly into the
interior and connect it with the ports by
railroads or military lines, the new
knowledge gained may have vast signifi
cance. Dr. 1'arker I 'rays cream Van-Ola, Rosa
