Taeslay. Octobsr 16,1877 Our National Highway. Ono of the most important Teatur'es of the Bt. Paul convention was the adoption of t resolution' demanding that the Missis sippi river shall be kept prominent before confess, in all appropriations hereafter to be made, as a distinctively national object, of paramount importance to all others. The force of this demand will mako itself ap parent as nothing bat just and right when all the circumstances are taken into ac count. There are ten states abutting on the river, viz: Minnesota, with a popular tion of 500,000; Wisconsin, with a popu lation of 1.200,000; Iowa, with a popula tion of 1,300,000; Illinois, with a popula tion of 2,500,000; Missouri, with a popu lation of 1,800,000; Kentucky, with 1,400,000; Tennessee, with 1,300,000; Arkansas, with 500,000; Mississippi, with 000,000, and Louisiana with 800,000 mak- an aggregate population of over 12,000, 000. And this does not include Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, OhlQ, Indi ana, Kansas, Nebraska, Texas and Ala bama, also interested to a large extent ia the navigation of the stream. If this extent of territory, embracing a population of nearly ono-fourth of the whole country has not the right to be considered as of great importance in a national point of view, when making claims for the improvement of the great national water way, then the convention was at fault When the late civil war broke out ia 1861, the people of the whole West were appealed to in behalf of the nationality of the mighty stream and were urged to take up arms to prevent it from being fettered by a foreign power; and it is a historical fact that the govern meat's whole soheme of strategy in the west was directed to the rescue of the river from the hands of the confederates that it might "run, nnvexed, to the sea,' the government thus instinctively ad mitting its thorough nationality aod its inestimable strategical and oommercia importance. The demand of the St. Paul convention is, therefore, says the St. Louis Hepulli can, reiolorced by history and strategy, as woll as by statistics' of population, and there ought to be no disputing the claim of the Mississippi to be considered a na tional stream, with the right of being improved by annual appropriations. Sure ly, if the New York and Boston harbors re quire to be improved at a large cost every year, for the advantage and convenience of the foreign vessels that now carry our ocean commerce, the Mississippi river, bearing a largo share of the commerce of twelve states, ought to share the sameifavor. The South Carolina Robbers. It seems that in hunting down the robtur ring which operated in South Car oline during the Chamberlain regime, for some reason, there seems to be a dis position to let Ohambarlaio escape. As ho was the brains of the ring and controlled and manipulated the steals, it hardly seems just to hunt down the men who were only tools in his hands, and to allow him to go scot froe. The Charleston News and Courier gives no account of the preliminary exam iuution of Ilobt. Smalls, the colored con pressman from the Beaufort district in that state. Smalls was a member of the memorable legislature which passed the bills thut enabled the Chamberlain ring to carry out its gigantic schemes of plunder. Ia 1873 the ring thieves drew a bill appro priating the enormous sum of $5:25,000 for tho public printing. The bill was put through the legislature in the usual way, Woodruff buying up the votes of the nec essary number of senators and represen tatives. He has now turned state's eyi dence, and produces a little memorandum book, containing in short hand the record of hW purchases. Smalls received $5,000 for his vote on the public printing bill, and Woodruffs check in pnymect is traced to tho private account of the bribed African, The ouly surprise croatcd by the revela tion is that so large a sum should have been paid for a single vote. The market price of colored legislators in Columbia at the time was very much lew than $5,000 each. N. G. Parker, ex state treasurer of the statu, who was arrested in Patterson, N. J., on Friday last, and left for Charles ton, S. C-, on Saturday, says be believes be will be allowed to turn state's evidence, and there is uo doubt that his recent con fessino was dictated with this end in view, It is stated that no further arrests will be made at present of members of the old ring. Tho government ought not to stop short of the arrest of Chamberlain, for one by one the lesser rascals are being forced towards the doors of the penitentiary. STANLtr. HU Arrival Near thw West Coast With a Starving Party. The most pleasing feature of Stanley's successful exploration is that it is hailed by all his fellow travelers in Africa as the accomplishment of a task to which each in turn set himself, and to which all have contributed their share. Among these dis tinguished for courage, purseyerauce and skill in exploration, Du Chaillu ranks prominent, and when he speaks in the greatest of praise of Stanley's work (in a letter to the Herald,) it may bo accepted without a fear that it is influenced by ig norant enthusiasm. In the long list of eminent explorers who have trod the regions of Equatorial Africa, no name is better calculated to evoke universal esteem thau that of Livingstoneand to rescue him it was that Stanley plunged into the wilds of Africa when he commenced the journeys that have been.crowned with such success. It is only the adventurous men. ( who have braved the dangers of the African forests and jungles who can thoroughly appreciate the grandeur of Stanley's un dertaking and tho completeness of its success. Annexed we publish a dispatch from Washington, giving the latest information received by the department of -state from the commercial, agent of the United States at Gaboon, concerning Stanley's arrival on the west .coast of Africa, t Tje reader will be deeply touched by the ex- ptessions of gratitude in Stanley's letter to the white residents of Emboma for their timely snccur in the way of provisions, etc Indeed, the wonderful endurance of Stan ley and his party is as much a cause of astonishment as his success in the great work he undertook in the face of so many difficulties and dangers. Washington. OeL 11. 1877. The department of state is in receipt of two dispatches, dated August 30 and September 1, from the tJnited States commercial agent at Gaboon, giving further information concerning Stanley and his party. The first dispatch gives the news per a merchant steamer, U8t arrived in the Gaboon, of Stanley's arrival on the west coast of Africa from Zanzibar, on the east coast, with other particulars which have already been given to the public. I he second dispatch contains copies ot the last two letters written by Stanley to a gentleman at Lmboma, who, as will bo seen, came to the relief of his party in the very nick of time. I he second letter, herewith given, gives a most grannie account ot the timely arrival of provisions and the feast in the desert: Banyahboka, Two Marches prom Ebboma, ) AuirnetS. 1HT7 J Messrs. Motta Vega and J.M. Harrison, Emboma ioago nver: ' Gentltmin I have received your very welcome letter, batjbetter than all, and more welcome, your supplies. 1 am unable to express, just at present, how grateful I feel. We are so overjoyed aod confused at our emotions at the sight of the stores exposed to our . hungry eyes, at the eight ot the rise, the nab, the rum and, for me, wheat bread, butter, sardines jam. peaches andlbeer. Ye Gods! Just think, three bottles of pale ale, besides tea and sugar. We cannot restrain ourselves from falling to and enjoying the bounteous store, so that I beg you will charge our apparent want of thankfulness to our greediness. If we do not thank sufficiently in words rest assured we feel what volumes cannot describe. For the next twenty four hours we shall be too busy eating to thiok much of anything else; but I may say that the people cry out while their mouths are full of rice and fish, "Verily our master has found the sea and his brothers, but we did not believe him unti he showed us the rice and the rum. We did not believe there was any end to the great river (Congo); but, God be praised torevcr, we shall see white men to-mor row, and our wants and troubles will be over." Dear sirs, though strangers, I hope we shall be great friends, and it will be the study of my life to remember my feelings of gratefulness when I first caught sight of your supplies, and my poor, faithful and brave people oned out, Master, we are saved; food is coming," and the old and the young, men, women aod cnildren lifted up their wearied, wornout frames and began to chant out lustily an extern poraneous song in honor of the white people by the great sea (the Atlantic) who had listened to their prayeru. I had to rush to iuy tent to hide the tears that would flow despite 'all my attempts at composure. Gentlemen, may the blessing of God at tend your footsteps whithersoever you go, is the very earnest prayer of yours, very gratefully, H. M. Stanley. Should ex-Secretary Briatow bo ap pointed minister to England, as is talked of, ex president Graot would immediately return home. Bristow is not Pierrepont. IKSUEAUCE OLD AND TRIED.
