t of danger, and betray, in many instances, a consciousness of the sad destiny awaiting them. In all this, Stanley was unconsciously acquiring a preliminary lesson in dealing with savage races. The tone in which Sherman, Henderson, and Commissioner Taylor, spoke to the Indians, now as to warriors, now as to children, gave hints which, later, Stanley put to good use. And the experience of the Indians suggests a parallel with that of the Congo natives as each met the whites. The wise and generous purposes of men like Sherman and Taylor, as afterwards of Stanley, were woefully impeded in their execution by the less fine temper of their subordinates. And now, from the West, Stanley goes to the East. The point of departure is given in the Journal. January 1st, 1868. Last year was mainly spent by me in the western Territories, as a special correspondent of the Missouri Democrat, and a contributor to several journals, such as the New York Herald, Tribune, Times, Chicago Republi

ect the recovery of Texas to the Union. The fleet under Admiral Porter started up the Red River from Vicksburg with the transports carrying A. J. Smith's column of 10,000 men. Fort De Russy was captured, and Alexandria and Natchitoches fell into Union hands as they advanced. Banks with his army arrived a week later. At Sabine Cross Roads the vanguard met the Confederates in force. Sufficient care had not been taken to keep the several Union bodies together, and the Confederates under General Taylor defeated Franklin April 8th, and drove him back with a loss of 3,000 out of 11,000 engaged. At Pleasant Hill, A. J. Smith made a stand on April 9th, but was unable to hold his own. An immediate retreat was made, without waiting to bury the dead, and the fleet came near being cut off by low water at Alexandria, but the ingenuity of Colonel Bailey in constructing a dam and water-way enabled it to escape. In the picture the level in front of the hotel is piled with ammunition and supplies

I ask Apostle Taylor, as we wander in and out among the Temple shafts and passages, noting how slow and solid is the lder no longer, is living with a single wife. Why should not plural families increase? asks Taylor, in a tone which begs the whole question of fact and theory, this increase is the will of heave law as it is given to us, and to enjoy the blessings offered by God to his obedient Saints. Taylor is no doubt right. The system of White polygamy, which droops and fades in presence of the Gentsence of the Snakes and Utes — a fact of facts: the full significance of which is hardly seen by Taylor and his brother Saints. No sooner was the railway built, the valley opened, and the stranger The same conclusion has been forced on many others. Do you wish me to infer, I ask Apostle Taylor, that the rich and educated Mormons are giving up polygamy, and that the poor and ignorant breth

other places, the Red aberrations of White people are in process of correction. White polygamy is perishing in Utah, like Red polygamy, of which it is a bastard offspring, not by force or violence, but by the operation of natural laws. It dies of contact with the higher fashions of domestic life. I gather, not from what you tell me only, but from every word I hear, and every man I see, that there is change of practice, if not change of doctrine, I remark to President Wells and Apostle Taylor. That is your impression? asks the Apostle. Yes, my strong impression; I might say my strong conviction. Pardon me for saying that the point is very serious. If you mean to dwell in the United States, you must abate the practice, even if you retain the principle, of plural wives. Nature, Law, and Accident are all against your theories of domestic life. Nature puts the male and female on the earth in pairs; and thereby sets her face against your theories. The Law of every Chri

s, and the corridors boom with voices, like the uproar of a stormy sea. To-night the scene in our Rotunda is a sight. General Sheridan, dressed in plain clothes, is standing near a shaft, puffing his cigar, and chatting with his friends. Is it design or accident, his standing with his back against that shaft, so that his person is covered from assault except in front? About him fret and seethe a crowd of citizens, many of them bearing proud, historic names. General Ogden is here, General Taylor is here, and General Penn is here. The lame man pushing through the crowd is General Badger, now recovering from his wounds. The gentlemen near Sheridan, also in plain clothes, are General Emory and Colonel Sheridan, a younger brother of the chief. Banditti! How the Southern fire darts out, the Southern pride expands, as Senator and General cross the hall, restrained alike by courtesy and policy from rushing on the man who calls them outlaws and is only waiting for a word to string th

the old parties would not concede, but that there was, so far as the slavery issue was involved, absolutely no difference between them. It is a notable fact that in the eight years following 1840, of the four presidential candidates put in nomination by the two parties, three were slaveholders, the fourth being a Northern doughface, and both of the two who were elected held slaves. For the nomination and election of one of these men, whom he describes as a slaveholder from Louisiana (General Taylor), Mr. Roosevelt is disposed to hold the Abolitionists accountable. They forced the poor Whigs into those proceedings, he intimates, probably by telling them they ought to do nothing of the kind, that being what they actually did tell them. But as the Abolitionists, four years earlier, in the same way defeated the Whigs when they were supporting a slaveholder from Kentucky (Clay), and a man who, in his time, did more for the upbuilding of slavery than any other person in America, it wou
