FOWUE * CC»- PRICE. 5 CENTS — r — * ■ ■ »■ * 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 eminent explorer. 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 Trenholm’a Son. 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 : “I am Edwin Trenholm, and I fell it the battleof Ball’s Bluff. I was second lieutenant in the 22d Vir ginia, Company I. I have been trying'all this time to And a per&dti through whom I could manifest to my father, to my sisters But I*ve not been able to. I ask pardon for' intruding here. I know it’s not just the thing to fight against you, and then come and ask a favor ol you. [You are welcome.] I feel ihmTm under obligations to you, sir, but I fee!; also; that I may be able to cancel thoee obligations some time. I was-but sixteen years old, sir, sixteen years and five mon»hß, when. I entered the Confederate army, I- participated in some thing like nine battles, and. I saw something of hard life, was shot, and -died upon the field. If my father, would like to hear from me, talk to me, I should be very glad to talk to him. I understand that he is about to bear-, rested and tried £or—well, treason, it is, l suppose. I’m not inclined to plead either for or against him. I suppose all who took up 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 and xiis associates were ■ any more to blama than thousands of others who, well* in pri vate life are thought to be loyal to your Government, while it’s very possible that they might, with ft'eir money, their srtrong magnetic influence' force them to,lake that position, being too great cowards too take it themselves. However, your Civil cdiirts don’t 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. Good-day, 9ir. rMay 30. —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, t>ar Thursday lost, he made a speech clowjg 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.” —Some Canadian negroes went over to Bochester a short time sine O-and went to the theatre. Under the mistaken idea that they were members of a party of wealthy Cubans stopping at one of tbejftotfils, they were giv en. Jirst-jate seats in roe cWss circle. Great was the constenifttipn v?hen it was foand,, that they were “only n*ggers.” —Punch says Ihfii is by a brute: .Wby is a beard like common' 1 sense ? Because ho wo man possesses it.
