Their accounts of the growing trade of the cahioy are highly gratifying. The present sUte of Sierra Leone, wbik it fonns a striking contrast with tbe ill-futed. thongh 5enevolfat attempt which waa made in 1792, to colonise the island of Bu-laina, illustrates in a striking manner the soundness of some of the views entertained by captnin Beaver, wbo corninaoded thAt expedition.-*' Aa one of the means that would inevitably tend lo the abolition of the slave trade," says he, " 1 would recommend the cultivation of Ati^ bv its free aatlvet. I know ibat those who choose always to see the African character in its worst light, will probably say the aativca will never be hsHuoed vokia-tarily to labour. As far aa iny knowledge of the AfricMM witt enable me to judge, I bavi ho doubt nf tbeir resdilf MBIliif the earth for lui�, vhtatitt �aaacMit^fy4Ma^ emptoy them, f navar saw anea work harder,.piora frfM^^IV^ more regularly, generally speaking, than those /ree natlvea whom I employed upon the Istaod Of BulHiiia.

Civilisation aiay for some time be confined to the territorv colonised ; but commerce will begin immediately to elt.-nd by little and little mio the interior. The convenience of a mart being unre establiahad, and the certainty af European articles being always lo be found there, would induce the mterior traders to coiue, instead of annually, whenever they bad commodities to sell, which wooM keep up, except in the rains, a roostHot communication with tbe interior. This consUnt communication would tend to civilisa all those people through whose territories it was carried on ; and this increased civihaation woold produce additional security, which would tcad alao to augmeut that communication."-Thcsa , predictions, publiahed nineteen years ago, nre now every one of them literally accompliabed at Sierra Leone ; nnd, what is most remarkable, by the agency (excluding miliUiyj of titUe ntoM than a hundred resident white persons ! The following are extracts from these papers : - " Freetown, Satunlay, Jan. 31,1824. " Among tbe naaoy subjectj of coagraiutatitMi We linve t� offer to those wbo feel interested in the daily i;icreH8ing prosperity of this riaing aettlement, we may notice tlie arrival of a large ship for a cargo of timber from the port of DnbAn. '/liia is another convincing proof tbat the value of tUis Hrticlo is bc-couii g more generally known. Since our last statement, two large ships for cargoes of the same kind have arrived, and more are daily expected. The only fear expressed by the trucfers is, that they shall not be able to load them fast waougli. We have long ogosii�ted onr canviction that the reioiircus of tbia colony were notsitfltnently known, uad every hour provesCbe truth of oiir odaertioo.

Am ng those wbo have observed the want of this inestiiiiahle work 10 the rillage chilrches certain support may be expected ; and from the enlightened liberrtlity that has hitherto been witnessed for the promotion ofChrisliau morality, we have no doubt of its sueeess. " By tbe brig Frances Ann, from Leeward, which fell in wit* his Majesty's brig Swinger at sea, we learn tbat Belzoni had landed in tbe Bight of Benin, where be experienced a slight attack of fever; but^eling himself pertectly recovered in a few days, be started upon his enterprise with every hope of ultiaMte success. If we were inclined to indulge in the gift of prophecy, we should speak very tavourably of his undertaking. This enterprising traveller ceitaioly pos:aad when bia master said " Well, Dick, how are you to .d^ }"~ ** A great deal biilifer, thank you, master," was tbe reply, to tbe astonishment of Mr. Hoarej wbo actually staggered at the pilra-cle.
