W'e need not ui t'at thei than Xew iinl.uui lo Kaiti that some ot these cnUM-s, or all ot them coinlpined. have already s chewed the native n;tt ural increase that, lint lor the intlnx ot foreigners to till np the vacuum, that sic tiou would chil, it a decennial dccrcasi rather than an increase. 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 ulation much more dense than now exists among Liieuegio I ace is iiiiinii.iuuni iiu bills of mortality toevery Southern town and city trom Washington to New Or leans, where the ratio of death ill all ol them is three to one as against white mortality. These well established facts are enough to dissipate any dream of ai prehension of excessive and dispropor tionate increase of the negro in the Cnited States. 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 private gain.

Stanley is once more the lucky man. .meigul again from the mysteries of the I'.trk Continent, flushed wit It victory and elate with the prideoflrcshiliseovcry. ta 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. the vast mass being compressed into a space not very much larger than ail open hand. 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.
