LIVINGSTONE'S EXPLORATION* In the geographical section of the British A?s K-ialion, a vert interfiling paper, bj Dr. Livi-.z?tone, was read. We suhjvin afew extrics : In the upper part of the Lower Shire, in the highlands, and in the valley of the I'pper Shire, there is a somewhat numerous population The people generally live in villages and in hamlets near them Each village has its own chief, and the chiefs in a given territory have m head chief, to whom they owe some sort of allegiance The paramount chief of one portion of the Upper Shire is a woman. The sites of their villages are selected, for the most part, with judgment and good taste. A stream or *priug is near, and pleasant shade-trees grow in and around the place. Nearly every village U surrounded by a thick hedge of the poidonou* euphorbia During the greater part f the year the inhabitants could see an enemy through the hedge, while he wuuld find it a Uinicun matter to see them, liv sbooilog their already poisoned arrows through the ten^ ?ier branches, they get ?me a red with the poisonous milky juice, and inflict most painful if not fital wounds. The constant dripping of the juice of the bruiaed branches prevents the enemy trom attempting to force his way through the hedge. as it destroys the eyesight. The huts are larger, stronger built, with higher and more graceful roofs than any we hare seen on the &amDesi. Many of the men are very intelligent looking. with high foreheads and well-shaped head.-'. They show singular taste in the astonishingly varied styles in which their hair is arranged. Their bead necklaces are really pretty specimens of work. Many have upper and middle as well as the lower part of the ear bored, and have from three to five rings in cach ear. The hole in the lobe of the ear is large enough to admit ene's finger, and some wear a piece of h am boo about an inch long in it. Brass and iron bracelets, elaborately figured. are seen; and some of the men sport from tw<> to eight brass rings on each finger, and even the thumbs are not spared. They wear copper, brass, and iron rings on their legs and arm?; many have their front teeth notched, and some file them till they resemble the teeth of a saw. The upper-lip ring of the women gives them a revolting apperanoe; it is universally worn in the highlands. A puncture is made high up in tne lip, and it is gradually enlarged until the pelele can be inserted. Some are very large. One we measured caused the lip to project two inches beyond the tip of the noit: w h?n tu- ??* , *hw >??uj oiuucui mr cuuiraction of the muscles elevated it over the oyes. ' Why do tbe women wear these things?" the venerable chief, Cbinsurdi, was asked. Evidently surprised at such a stupid question, he replied 'For beauty! They are the only beautiful things women have; men have beards, women have none. What kind of a person would she be without the pelele ? She would net be a woman at all with a mouth like ' * man, but no beard." " They seem to be an industrious race. Iron is dug out of the hills and every village has one or two smelting bouses ; and from their own native iron they make excellent hoes, axes, spears, knives, arrowheads, Ac. They make also round basket* of various sixes, and earthen pots, which they ornament with plumbago, said to be found in the Hill country, though we could not learn exactly where, or in what quantities; the only specimen we obtained was not pure. At every fishing village on the banks of the river Shire men were busy spinning bauze and making large fishing nets from it; and from Chihisas to the Lake, in every village almost we saw men cleaning and spinning cotton, while others were weaving it into <tmnr ninth i?? !?.?" m aiu)licit WillstruotioD, all the processes being excessively slow. This is a great cotton-growing country. The cotton i* of two kinds, "Ton^i manga.'' or foreign cotton, and "Tooji cadi," or native cotton. The former is of good quality, with a staple from three quarters to an inch in lengthIt id perennial, requiring to be planted only once in three years The native cotton is planted every year in the highlands, is of short staple, and feels more like wool than cotton. Every family appears to own a cotton patch whicQ is kept clear of weeds and grass. We saw the foreign growing at the Lake and in various placed for thirty miles south of it, and about an equal number of miles below the cataracts on tne Lower Shire. Although the native oolton require* to be planted annually in the highlands, the people prefer it, because, they say, "it makes the stronger cloth." It was remarked to a number of intelligent natives near the Shire lakelet, "you should plant plenty of cotton, and perhaps the Eutfliih will come sooa and buT it." '-Sural* iH? country if full of cotton," naid an elderly man t who was a trader and traveled much. Our own observations convinced us of the truth of this statement. Everywhere we saw it. Cotton patches of from two to three acres were seen abreast of tho cataracts daring the first trip, when Lake Tamandua waj discovered, though in this journey, on a different rout?, none were observed of more than half an acre. They usually coatained about a quarter of an acre each. There are extensive tracts on the level plains of both the Lower and Upper Shire, where salt exudes from the soil. ?ea Island cotton might grow well there, as on these the foreign cotton becomes longer in the staple The cotton growers here never have iheir crops cut off by the frosts. There are none. Both kinds of cotton require but little labor, none of that severe and killing toil required in the United Stairs- The people are griat cultivators of the soil, and it repays them well. They grow laasaver in large quantities, preparing ridges for it from three to four feet high arid about a foot high. They also raise maize, rice, two kinds of millet, beans, sugar cane, weet potatoes, yams, groundnut*, pumpkins, tobaoeo, and Indian hemp. Near Lake >'yassa we saw indigo seven feet high. Large quantities of beer are made We found wfcole vihacee on the sore*, and aav th? ?t?. pid tjp? of drunkenness. the silly sort, the boisterous talkative sort. and on one occaaion the almost-up-to-the-tahting-point variety, when a petty chief, with some of the people near, placed himself in front, exclaiming. "I stop this path; you most go back." Had he not got oat of the way with greater speed than dignity, an inoansed Makololo would have cured him of all desire to try a similar exploit in future. It waa remarked by the oldest I traveler in the party that ha had not seen ay muchdrunkenneaa daring all the years he had spent in Africa. The people, notwithstanding, attain a great age. One is struck with the large number of old grey-headed persons in I the highlands Thia seems to indicate a healthy climate For their long lives they are not the least indebted to frequent ablutions. ''Why do you wash yourselves? our men neTer do, said some women at Chintardi to the Makoloio. An old man told as he remembered having washed himself once when a boy, but never repeated it; and from his appearance one coald , hardly eall the truth of his statement in question A fellow who volunteered some wild geographical information followed us about a dosen milee. and introduced na to the chief UnAM* ka sawtn* i?TKaw kew? -.??J J 4MWW // AU?/ u?fv wauuorVQj they don't know where they are going.'' Soold that mia," said a Makololo heed to hie factotum, who immediately commenced an extemporary Molding; yet this singular geographer would follow as, and we eonld not gat rid of him till the Makololo tbreatanad to take him to the rirer and waih him. Toe eaator oil with which thay lubrieate themselves and the dirt serve aa an additional elothing, aad to waah themselves is like throwiag away the only upper garment they possess. Toey feel cold and unoomforUble after a waah. We observed several persons marked by tha email-pox. On asking the Chief Mongasi, who waa a little tip*y, ana disposed to be very grst cious, if he know its origin, or whether it had come to them from the sea, be Mid, "He did not kaow, bat supposed it had coiue to them froas the English ' They have the idea of a Supreme Bring, whom tfcey nam* Prmmbe, and alto of a future atate. The Chief Chinsurdi aaid they all knew that they lived again after death. Sometime* the dead came back again, they appeared to them in dreama, bnt they nover told them where they had gone to. Thia ia an inviting field for benevolent enterpriae. There are thousand* needing Chriatian inatruction, and here are material* for lawful commerce, and a fine healthy country, with none of the noxious insects with which Captaina Burton and Speke were tormented, and, with the single exception of 30 miles, water communication all the way to England. Let but a market be opened for the purcbaae of their cotton, and they can raiae aluiest any amount of it. and the alave trade will speedily be abolished. THE GREAT EASTERN. Her Dupartare fer Cape May?Scene* on the River aad la the Bay. On Monday afternoon, aaya the New York Times, about 4J o'alock. the Great Eastern left her anchorage in the middle of the stream, in the North River, and nrncuxlflil nn h?r CaDe May excursion. She has between eleven ana twelve hundred people on board, nearly all of whom had paid ten dollars each for their ticket. Among those who were invited to do exoellent service, were Sergeant Dickson and four other officers attached to the Detective Police, who will prevent operations on the part of some noted thieves, who are known to have purchased tickets, expecting, undoubt?dly. to realise the amount of them twenty or fifty fold. From an early hour in the morning, large crowds assembled at every available point on the New York and Jersey sides of the river, and on the Long Island and Staten Island shores ind eminences to witness her departure. The excitement was almost a? great as on the occasion of her coming up the Bay. The Battery was crowded to excess. In faot, everywhere, on each side, thousands upon thousands of people were congregated. They had to wait much longer than they expected, however, with some impatience and weariness. The delay was partly owing to the state of the tide, and partly to the fear of breaking the Staten Island telegraph cable, which crosses the river at the point where her anchor was dropped, and with which it had become entangled. By using extreme cantion. no damage was done, but some delay was the consequence. A large fleet of yachts, row-boats and small sail craft lay off Staten Island and toward the Narrows to antioipate her coming. As there was no wind, they found it difficult to control their movements, which obliged the Great Eastern in one or two cases to vary her course from direct channel-way to avoid a collision with them. By the time she had prooeeded half way from the Battery to Staten Island, both the wheels and screws were revolving rapidly, and the ship carried a tolerably sized 11 bone in her mouth." The excursionists, in large numbers, were seen on all the prominent parts of the ship, except on the paddle-boxes, which are always sacred to the pilots 8nd Captain when the ship is under way. The three tops were well filled with people, who looked patronizingly down from their lofty height upon their fellow-passengers, and particularly so upon the outsiders who were following in the wake of the ship, or on her quarters in largo and small steamers. The most crowded of *1 rrn t? Iir ?? ' * uiu? ncio mo laomis r. ?> ay, xienancu Hudson, Columbia, Mayflower, Tiger, Thomas Hunt, and Kejrport, besides which the Island Bell, Satelite. Moses Taylor, Huntress, and Francis G. Speight, were all well filled The steamer Delaware, which accompanies the Great Eastern to Cape Maj, had a very large party 011 board. The steamer Saxonia, which arrived and passed Quarantine at 5 o clock, fired a gun for the Great Eastern as she passed Large numbers were disappointed in their efforts to get on board of the excarsion boats, which were in some cases dangerously crowded before they had called at half the different places mentioned in the advertisements. The Thomas P. Way came down from Newark with her deck literally packed, and was obliged to pass by and leave several hundred people standing on the pier foot of Dey street, who had gathered with the intention of going in her. The new steamer Flushing. Capt. Ximino, brought down over six hundred persons, and, on her arrival at the Fulton Market slip, some four hundred others went on board, making about one thousand. The Flushing made a circuit of the ship as she lay at anchor, and followed her part the way down the bay. The Staten Island boats , were all thronged from 2 to 4 p. m , tbose on the 5 o'clock return boat baring a good view of the ship, passing her almost within hail. AH the shore of Staten Island, from Burns' Hotel to the Bluff, were lined with spectators, who wared and cheered as the big ship swept b y On the Long Island shore, from Bay Ridge to Fort Hamilton, crowds were also seen. Most of the steamers, finding it late (nearly six o'clock) when ther had reached the Narrows, turning back to the city, each company giving the usual parting hurrah. Tbe weather was all that could be desired, and without a doubt, her passengers will bare a pleasant time. OrBA.f Telegraph Cables.?Mr. Kamett, who has reeeired the concession from the French Qorernment to establish an electric telegraph from France to Amerioa, writes to the London Times :?My cable is so made that no sort of corruption or corroding influence will damage it, either before or after it is submerged. When a cable of any kind ia once laid in deep water it is hermetically sealed, and the chemical action of the sea-water then takes but slow effect, eren upon iron. But regetable material?say, for example, wood or hemp?teems rather to be improred in <^iality than deteriorated by time, which is prored by many instances; I will only mention one, that rtf tk* lin*.nf.K?HU ?Kin Ra?bI v? " W-WWW ???F * ?/ "* M Wl^O, nuiuu lay sank at Spithead for 50 years, when the hemp oordage as well u the wood wera found perfect; or u maj be aaid even tougher than when they were new, as much of the wood now even in a thousand shapes testifies. The iron, however, had yielded to the chemical action of the water, and waa literally destroyed. The importance, therefore, of my cable being so preserved is not that it may be safe when submerged, but that it may bear any kind of exposure to damp, dirt, wet, or dry wherever it may lie, before it is submerged. and during transit also through any climate to any part of the world; and that it may also be tested electrically under water for any length of time, before it is finally submerged without a chance of damage. Militart Emulation ?The recent visit of the Chicago Zuaves to this city, Albany, Boston, and Philadelphia, has put all our military amateurs on their mettle, and many of our volunteer companies are about to introduce the style of drill, the gymnastic exercises, and even the rules as regards temperance, the effect of which hu b?en ao brilliantlv exemnliffAd in the Zouaves. But still, this company, with its universally acknowledged superiority of drill and dicipline, is not to b? allowed to carry off the palm without a contest. The challenge which they gar* to all the volunteer companies in the United States has been accepted bj the Colambus Guard, of Georgia, who offer to c mpete with them at Memphis, Tennessee, in May next. Should the terms of the Colum bus Guard prove satisfactory to the Zouaves, the scene of this modern tournament will attract an immense concourse of people from all parts of the country, and will rival in celebrity the famous Field of the Cloth of Gold. We know of no reason why Col. Ellsworth should reject the terms, except on the ground of the remoteness of the period fixed; because the ten intervening months would suffioe to enable his competitors to attain the highest point of proficiency; and his challenge was to companies now trained, not to those that might hereafter he trained. Still, he will hardly stead upon that formality, end will probably accede to the propeaittoB.?If Y. HtreUd. Amis.
