lligence is early and exclusive, you shall be well paid by the letter, or at the rate by which we engage our European specials, and you will be placed on the permanent list. Very well, Sir. I am at your service, any way you like. When do you intend to start? On the 22nd, by the steamer Hecla. That is the day after to-morrow. Well, consider it arranged. Just wait a moment while I write to our agent in London. In a few minutes he had placed in my hands a letter to Colonel Finlay Anderson, Agent of the New York Herald, The Queen's Hotel, St. Martin's Le Grand, London ; and thus I became what had been an object of my ambition, a regular, I hope, correspondent of the New York Herald. On the 22nd, in the morning, I received letters of introduction from Generals Grant and Sherman, which I telegraphed for, and they probably will be of some assistance among the military officers on the English expedition. A few hours later, the mail steamer left. I had taken a draft o

There were many and honourable exceptions, and these he praises warmly in the book. The Congo, and the Founding of its Free State. Such were the Scotch engineer, Binnie, who so stoutly held his solitary post at Stanley Falls; the efficient and fine-spirited Danish sailor, Albert Christopherson; the Scandinavian seaman, Captain Anderson, with his genius for inspiring everyone near him to work; the Englishman, A. B. Swinburne, with a genius for gardening and home-making, and for winning the affection of both whites and blacks; the Italian mechanician, Francois Flamini, who charmed the steam-engines into docility. But the book tells often of the failures, and the private note-books detail the story more plainly, and tell, too, something of his difficulties with his native helpers.
