pal Cities, Rates of Exchange, Brokerage, Ac., and

The Recent Great Nile Dlacovery.
Bir Roderick Murchison communicates to
the London Titles along letter from Mr.
Baker, the discoverer of Albert Nyanza Lake
in Central Africa. Sir Roderick Murchison
infers, from a carefully-drawn mao sent him *
by Mr. Baker, and also from a passage in hi*,
letter, that he substantiates the opinion adopt-*
ed by Speke, that the Nile flowed into th*
Luta Nzige, and then emerged from it in Ita
course to Gondokoro. Sir Roderick also ob
serves that the important additional km>wl
edge obtained by Baker, showing the exist
ence of great cataracts on the Nile between
the point where Speke left the river and the
place where he next met it, explains that
which has been looked upotfas a serious dis- 4
Acuity in the acceptance of the views oi that
The chief exploit of Mr. Baker was the
discovery of the Twin Lake to Speke’s Vic
toria Nyanza Lake, which he named the Al
bert Nyanza Lake. The Nile is believed to
pasS through this lake, as also throngh tf>e
Victoria. But Mr. Baker pushed up the
river beyond its entrance into the lake. He
thus describes his voyage :
I went up the Nile in a canoe from the
junction; the natives would proceed no fur
ther north, owing to the hostile tribes on
the lake shores. About ten miles from the
junction, the Nile channel contracted to about
250 yards in width, with little perceptible
stream, very deep, and bauked as usual with
high reeds, the country on either side undu
lating and wooded. The course from the
junction up the river being east, at about 20
miles Irom Magungo, my voyage suddenly
terminated; a stupeuduous waterfall of about
120 feet perpendicular bight stopped all fur
ther progress. Above the great mil the rivet
is suddenly confined within rocky hills, and
its races through a gap, contracted from,*
grand stream of perhaps 200 yards width to
a channel not exceeding 50 yards. Through
this gap it rushes with amazing rapidity,
and plunges at one leap iuto a deep basin be
low. This magnificent cataract I have taken
the liberty of naming the “Murchison Falls.’*
From that point I proceededLpverland pa
rallel with the river through Cnopi, and at
length I reached Karuma, having been for
some months completely disabled by fever,
my quinine loDg since exhausted. - *
A Message from the Spirit of Secretary
The Banner of Light, (spiritualist paper)
of July 22, contains dates from the 'Spirit
Land to May 80. Among the messages pub
lished in the “message department” I* one
purporting to come from Edwin Tregfeolm.
We give it entire :

arms against the Federal Government were
guilty of treason, and I think there’s a pretty
long account to settle. I suppose you’ll be
guided as to the best way of settling it. I
cannot think, howtffer, that Jefferson Davis

they might, with ft'eir money, their srtrong

position, being too great cowards too take it

take anything Into consideration; if they did*
your code of laws would be such as would
deal out justice to every criminal.
I should be glad to see justice done to all.
And if my father deserves hanghig at the
hands of Government, if justice points in that
direction, I should say, why nang htan, by
all means. But I should first find out, wheth
er justice did point in that direction or not.

—The Chicago Tribune says tbs city ot
Springfield, 111., is overrun wi|h blacklegs,
burglars, garroters and harlots, male and le
maie, who have congregated to rob the sol
diers, as they are paid off and mustered out,
of their hard-earned wages. They have turn
ed the city into such a Pandemonium that
the Mayor, unable to stay the flood of crime,
bas requested Gen. Cook, with the military
force undsr his command, to undertake tho
government of the city, and to deal with the
villains in a summary manner. That city is
therefore now under martial law.
_,At a dinner to Gen- Sherman in St. Louis,

with this sentence: ‘Therefore, my friends,
now that the war is over, let us all go to w»rk
to do what seems most honest and just to re-,
store our country to its physical prosperity.
I repeat, to its physical prosperity. As to
im political prosperity, I know nothing of it,
and care about far less.”
