ar es Africa. "D k t Af' MR STANLEY'S EXPERIENCES AMONG THE DWARFS. Terrible Sufferings from African Diseases. A correspondent of the ill-anchester Guaydicin, telegraphing from Brussels last night, s.,vii-I have obtained the final communication which Mr Stanley has addreased to the Ind&pcnd<zncz Beige. Mr Stanley lays stress upon the horrors committed by the Arab ivory hunters from Myangwe. These men, he says, are much worse than the slaze banters, because in the latter case the Arabs have an interest in preserving the lives of the slaves, whereas when attacking the natives for their stores of ivory they kill and burn wholesale. Mr Stanley will readily describe his experiences before the Anti-Slavery Conference if the engage- ments made for him by the King permit. Re- garding the forest dwarfs, Mr Stanley states that they are THE OLDEST ARISTOCRACY IN THE WORLD. He will prove that their race dates back for fifty centuries. They are olive coloured, and highly intelligent, workers in iron, and their arrows are beautifully designed. They have a Queen, a charming little woman, who made great friends of the white man. This Queen will be a striking figure in Stanley's book. He intended bringing her to Europe, but she fell ill on the road, and all the other dwarfs whom the expedition tried to bring with them died of fever in the pirnr"* immediately after leaving their forests. Photographs of them, how- ever, have been brought. Dr. Parke adds that the dwarfs are a most moral and virtuous race, the only monogamous one, probably, throughout Africa. Dr. Parke describes the extraordinary DISVASES WHICH ARE RIPE in Central Africa. Oue of the worst is produced by the larvae of worms, which, entering the toes during the marches in damp forests, soon extended eubcutaneously from the ankle to the hip, CAUNI. ng a swelling and horrible pains: and if the bearf of the worm were not extracted a fearful ulcer was developed. Mr Stanley's illnesses were very des- perate, and he was on!y saved by his own faith and a stout struggle against death. His weight was reduced from 186;b to 1251b. Dr Paike will tiltimat-ly publish his African medical experiences. Mr Stanley is more confident than ever in THE ULTIMATE BEGK?ERATrOX OF THE BLACK MACKS. He says that the recent r-,ce strife in the United States only shows that Americans still presume too much on their superiority, and that the negroes are too eariy assuming that they are already the equals of the wtiitax. Time, patiance, and kindness will efface all prejudices.
