ert, and wise, and unless we learn to do the proper thing at the right moment — for to this end was our intellect and education given us. Pious missionaries, even while engaged in worship, have been massacred at the altar. The white skin of the baptised European avails nothing against the arrow. Holy amulets and crosses are no protection against the spear. Faith, without awakened faculties and sharp exercise of them, is no shield at all against lawless violence! Written in Africa, in 1876, in a note-book One of the first sweet and novel pleasures a man experiences in the wilds of Africa, is the almost perfect independence; the next thing is the indifference to all things earthly outside his camp; and that, let people talk as they may, is one of the most exquisite, soul-lulling pleasures a mortal can enjoy. These two almost balance the pains inflicted by the climate. In Europe, care ages a man soon enough; and it is well known that it was care which killed the cat ! In Afr
was supposed to be destitute of anything but timber. Australia has been frequently contemptuously alluded to. The Congo possesses splendid inland navigation, abundance of copper, nitre, gold, palm oil, nuts, copal, rubber, ivory, fibre for rope and paper, excellent grasses for matting, nets, and fishing-lines, timber for furniture and ship-building. All this could have belonged to Great Britain, but was refused. Alas! The Duke of Wellington replied to the New Zealand Association, in 1838, that Great Britain had sufficient colonies, even though New Zealand might become a jewel in England's colonial crown! On General Gordon. 1892 I have often wondered at Gordon; in his place I should have acted differently. It was optional with Gordon to live or die; he preferred to die; I should have lived, if only to get the better of the Mahdi. With joy of striving, and fierce delight of thwarting, I should have dogged and harassed the Mahdi, like Nemesis, until I had him down.
ess, I hold that Gordon need not have died! Henry Morton Stanley large shall his name be writ, with that strong line, Of heroes, martyrs, soldiers, saints, who gave Their lives to chart the waste, and free the slave, In the dim Continent where his beacons shine. Rightly they call him Breaker of the Path, Who was no cloistered spirit, remote and sage, But a swift swordsman of our wrestling age, Warm in his love, and sudden in his wrath. How many a weary league beneath the Sun The tireless foot had traced, that lies so still. Now sinks the craftsman's hand, the sovereign will; Now sleeps the unsleeping brain, the day's work done. Muffle the drums and let the death-notes roll, One of the mightier dead is with us here; Honour the vanward's Chief, the Pioneer, Do fitting reverence to a warrior soul. But far away his monument shall be, In the wide lands he opened to the light, By the dark Forest of the tropic night, And his great River winding to the Sea. Sidney Low. May 13, 1904.
