SIR SAMUEL AND LADY BAKER. Sir Samuel and Lady Baker, with their nephew and some black servants, arrived in ParisTm Monday, Oil their way to London. The whole of them were in excellent health. The correspondent of the Daily Ncv's says Sir Samuel speaks in warm praisa of the Viceroy, Cheriff Pasha, and Nubar Pasha. The Viceroy, in his opinion, is a hundred years ahead of the people he governs. He gives his High- ness the fullest credit for a sincere desire to sup- press the slave trade, and regards the appointment of a British officer (Colonel Gordon) to be Sir Sanhiel's successor in command of the expedition as a strong guarantee that the work begun two years since will be honestly continued. Sir Samuel anticipates great commercial results from the creation of the projected railway to Khartoum, the finest coffee growing district per- haps in the world. The excellence of the climate is proved by the fact that out of the 212 soldiers who joined the expedition, only one died in eighteen months, and he had dropped into the rear at a sta- tion where he could when illlobtain no medical aid. The mortality among the women and the different babies who came into the world during that period was nil. Lady Baker proved herself a fnost efficient. iiurse in ministering to .the sick, and she and Sir Samuel Baker are greatly amused at the legendary reputation which she has most wrongly ana un- deservedly obtained for Amazonian qualities. Sir Samuel Baker intends when he returns to England to bring out a narrative of his last t,wo years' African experiences."
