MR STANLEY. I hear, says a London correspondent, that the preparations in connection with the reception to be offered to Stanley by the Royal Geographical Society are being pushed forward. It is jfxpected that some six thousand people will bfe accom- modated in the Albert-hall for the public meeting at which the distinguished traveller has promised to appear, and a great feature of ttfd "evening will be the enormous map, one hundred feet by eighty, which the draftsman of the society is now busily engaged in preparing to' illustrate Mr Stanley's route. The small committee to whom has been entrusted the Arrangements for the reception do not intend that t,lj""1>nquet shall be of a great public character. "They think that it would be mora agreeable to ASYwley to meet a small and select body of representative men, as he will no doubt be surfeited by large dinners of a more or less public character. The medals to be presented to Stanley and Emin are of gold, and very large silver replicas will ba pre- sented to the white officers who have crossed tbe continent with Stanley or have shared bis splendid exile with him, and the principal natives will have coppor replicas given to them to com- memorate their great journey.
