ancient pastorate, nntil tbe hut time
shall come to bring deliverance to tbe
world growling under tbe bondage of
sin ; tbe Moorish tale ot JUng uoabdil,
as he watches and waits in bis bloody
shroud for the returning glory ot the
Crosoent in its victorious struggle with
the Cross: the mediaeval vision of Char
lemagne, sitting on his throne in the
heart of the U titers bery, sword in band,
and alert for the coming of Anti-Christ
whom be shall Anally destroy irom

ttireeqne story ot .Don Bobnatian keep

the destinies of his beloved Portugal ;
the fiction of King; Arthur, not dead,
but carried to the fairy land from which
he is destined one day to eraergo for the
redemption ot Britain from Saxon op

perpetuity of tbe faith they preserve
in tne religion and land of thoir fathers
that bos gives to these fables their
currency and their persistence. .
Besides those national and religious

that tbe subtle elements ot historical
change and development are constan t ly
at work with a transforming power
which is none tho less efficient in its
results because it is invisible in its oper
ations. , If we would clearly dicern
tho fact of human progress in knowl

bo ahead In another decade, Is a settled
hu t, anil upon this point the editor In

urliclo found below clearly indicitlrs.
lie dwells at length nn this Important
subject, ss follows: :-
Few things wear an aspect of (Treat
or perniancnco to the eyes ot our
younger contemporaries than tho pre
eminence of tho State of New York.
Yet there are men now living who can
remember wlicr.!. was excelled by at
least two members of tho Union In re
spect to wealth, prostigo and number
of inhabitants. Already the ccntreof
fiopulntion has shifted beyond the AI
eglicnies, and It is possible that within
a tew decades Illinois may basou claim
to leadership upon nuincrical superior
ity. There are reasons, howovor, for
belioving that tho focus of productive
industry will be found in another quar
ter, and that Putinsylvaiiia is destined
to exhibit a preponderance of ciipitul
arid influenco in the second century of
tho republic's existence A reference
to statistics will even indicate tbut the
epoch is not far distant when Pennsyl
vania may venture, single handed, to
cotio with the resources of England.
The ftiture, I'eol said, belongs to the
nation which shall produco the most
coal. Novel applications of steam are
duily narrowing tho field of rude ninn
uul labor, and coal seems certain to re
main for centuries tho most available
calorific agent. A country whoso em
ployment of this minoral is chocked by
dwindling supplies and expanding cost
of extraction, is doubtless doomed to
eventual exclusion from the marts of
tho world ; and in a recent comparative
statement of amounts and progressive
rates ot coal production, tho English
statesmen would probably have recog
nized tbo handwriting on tho wail.
Tho total yield of the mineral through
out tbo world (Including bituminous,
anthracite and lignito varieties), was
estimated for tho year 1872 at two
hundred and flfty.fivo millions ot tons,
qf which England was credited with
about ono-hirlf, or in exact figures ono
hundred and twemy.five millions. The
United States ranked second in tho
list, having extracted ovor forty-one
millions, ol which tho single State of
Pennsylvania furnished about thirty,
an amount exceeding the united quotas
of Franco, Austria and Riissls, and
constituting almost an eighth of the
whole production of the globe.
Still more significant are tbo figures
which exhibit the comparative rates of
progression in tho development ol dif
ferent coal fields. During the last halt
century tho yield of Pennsylvania has
successively doubled with each decade,
while England's production, although
expanding with curious regularity, re
quires s period of fifteen years to slinw
sn equivalent gain.- It is probable
that tho rate of production in Pennsyl
vania will bo rather accelerated than
diminished, sinco a possible falling off
in the delivery ot anthracite mines
(whoso area is limited) must be more
than compensated from those ox limit
less bitiiininons deposits which lie west
of thcAllcghenies. On thootberhand,
it appears lrom the report of tho l'or
liamentary Commission that whilo the
Knglisb tual fields are in no immediate
danger of depletion, a sensible increnso
in the expense of mining may be ex
pected at an early day. In tliii case,
therefore, wo aro justified in drawing
an inference from statistics; sndasint
ple calculation demonstrates Jhut Penn
sylvania should outstrip England in
the production of this mineral within
sixty years from the present time. In
other words, tho men are already bnrn
who may see a State, which now cla
mors for protection, controlling with
paramount authority the most essen
tial adjunct of human industry, and so
qualified to undersell competitors in
every free market throughout all the
A inong tho decisivo factors of modern
civilization, iron ranks next to coal.
By an otld coincidence, a parallel in
stituted between Pennsylvania and
England in respect to tho reduction of
iron ores conducts lo identical results.
Tho total produce of iron and stool in
the year 1872 was computed at fourteen
millions of tons, nearly half Of which
wits furnished by Great Britain. The
I'nited Status followed with a quota nf
2,800,000, of which Pennsylvania con
tributed one halt, or a tenth of all the
iron smelted on the globe. Hs, how
ever, tho ditl'ureut lutes of .rogresion
in tho renpeclivu yields ot the two
two countries to which wo would
diroot attention, tbe production of
Pennsylvania mines being observed
to double once in ten yenrs, and
that of England in fifteen. Just now
the American iron interest shares the
universal deprcsssion ol biisiiicrw, but
such disturbances liavuocuurrcd before
without impairing the general correct
ness of tho rale assigned to its devel

' "WILD AFRICA." ,
Mr. Paul B. Du ChaJllu lectured on
Monday ovouisg in tho Swedish Evan
gelical Liilhern Church of Uustavus
Adnlphiis, Now York, tho subject be
ing "Wild Africa." A largo map of
Africa formed tho background ot tbe
platform. , .
, Mr. Du Cbuillii began his lecture,
narrating how ho set sail lor AlVifu in
a little schooner when he wosonly eigh
teen years of age. When he landed,
he found a struct about two miles long,
us narrow as a street in Swceden.
Then ho was taken to a largo building,
tbo only ono in the villago, and the
King was sent for, who appeared in a
swallow tail cost of a ettupls of eeo
turius old, and a shirt that bad been
unwashed for a couple ot years. Tho
King asked him if be had coino to buy
slaves or gold or ivory or oil. But bo
said no; that" he wanted to ill ani
mals and birds and butterflies. The
King promised that he would protect
all tho goods In the sciioonor, ana
would allow him all tho people ho
wuntod for his purposes. Tho lecturer
then went on to give a pleasant descrip
tion of this truot of land, which ran
from two or throe degrees north to two
or thrco degrees south of the equator,
extending several hundred miles in
land. Tboro woro no beasts ot burden
there, and all tho traveling had to be
done on foot. There woro a number
of tribes, each fighting against the
uthor, and each bail also a different
htiigiiage, fortunately, however, con
taining only a tew words as a vocabu
lary. Tbe heat and the quinine and
the furor wcro fierce. The forests
woro covered with flowers, tbo sugar
cane was wild, and here was the homo
ot 4ho mon of the woods. Polygamy
and wilchoralt were institutions ol tbo
country. Tho older mon grew the
more wives they wanted, ana the more
wives tho snore slavos, and the more
elaves the more wives. Witchcraft
was a tcrriblu curse. ,'J'bey wanted a
number of lives to bo sacrificed after
the death of thoir principal men. The
lecturer gave quite an amusing descrip
tion of his experience with an old King,
who he bad feared was going lo kill
bim. Alter a talk ot two hours, in
which the King declaimed about his
grandfather and tho number of ele
phants he had killed, and during which
timo the women all surrounded him,
tbo King concluded by offering bim a
seleutiou ot a wife troiu eight hundred
and fifty-three of the most beautiful
girU in that region. On his refusal to
tuko a singlo one lest tbo eight hun
dred and tiftjMwo remaining sbould be
jcitloits, it was decreed by the warriors
thai that was so, and that lliereioro
Mr. Du C'haillu should lake tbo whole
eight hundred and fifty-threo. During
bis experienco in Africa he had been
really offered twenty thousand women
for wives. , But finally tho King let
him depart on his immenso journey
into the forest and its frightening sur
roundings. Then ho began to bear of
tho gorilla, whic h horco animal used
to carry tho pesple into tho forest and
kill them. - ,
When they reached tho villuge of
tbo cannibals they found the bouses
about seven lect bigb and six leet long.
Tho King hero was afraid to see him,
believing bim to he a spirit. During
throe days the King stayed away, bat
thousands ol warriors cumeto see bim.
The lecturer told somo very pleasant
anecdotes about his experience with
tho King and his retainers, and ex
hibited tbe skull of a youthful gorilla
ot about twelve years of aojo. He thon
described bis first bunt alter a gorilla,
in company with his three savage at
tendants. The lecturer concluded a Very pleas

good leeling toward the bwedes and
their country, and the audience was
again treated to some singing by the

GAi.Esnt'Ra, III., Doo.25. The Rev.
Oval Perkey, President of Abingdon
College, was to-day reported ossasajn
ated at Abingdon, a small town nine
miles southwest of tho city. Abing
don College is an institution of the
Campbellilo or Christian Church, r or
many years the collego had been undor
(ho control of J. M. Butler. A faction
was formed against him which led to
bis dismissal in March, 1873. The fol
lowing August, President Perkey was
elected. Butler jwas called to a liko
situation at Sjinta Ross, California.
Tbo feeling of the Butler party was
very bitter toward Perkey, and no
pains were taken to conceal their ha
tred. Klllgius of Perkoy and bis ad
herents among tho faculty and towns
people were suspended, in different
parts of tho town. Their dwellings
woro detaced, and insults woro heaped
upon them while walking the streets.
Tho press of tho place teemed with in
cendiary articles. At tho June meet
ing of tho collego trustees, arrange
ment wcro made by them for an elec
tion to fill vacancies that would shortly
occur. Upon th day appointed, tho
trustees met at tho usual place? and
filled tho vacancies in tho board, thir
teen in i.ll, and completing a flill board
of thirty-two. The Butler party mot
on the sumo day, and, styling them
selves donors to the collego, claimed
tbo privilego of electing a board of
trustees, which they did. Tbo Perkey
parly being in possession, legal steps
.were at once taken to oust them, but
owing to lack of time, tho caso has not
como up for trial. Shortly after tho
removal of President Duller, measures
were taken by tho Christian Church
to expel from tho church Prof. Thomp
son, who had been instrumental in the re
moval of llutler. Thoir success in this
attempt resulted In the withdrawal of
ninety-nmo ol tho members, and the
formation of tho Jefferson Street
AVith this knowledge of affairs wo
are ready for the tragedy of last night.
The Jefferson Street Sunday School
wcro giving a sociable in the upper
hull of tho college building, tho Duller
party holding another on tho lowor
floor, Whilo In the midst of the even
ing's entortainment,' a disturbance in
the corridors attracted the attontion
of tbo party. President Perkey step
ped from tho ante-room near the stago
into the corridor, and there) met three
boys, Lomax, Lampkin and (iabriello,
who aro now under bonds. Tho boys,
evidently intoxicated, wcro requested
hy Perkey to step into the ball and
enjoy themselves. Troy refused, and
were then asked to step down stairs.
They replied insultingly. , Upon this
Perkey took (iabriello, the ono who
had insulted him, by the shoulders, and
when he had turned to lead him down
a short flight of stairs, Lampkin raised
his hand and struck him. Tho Presi
dent fell immediately, and the halls
were instantly filled with an excited
crowd. A nervous twitching of the
muscles were the only signs of life, and
ho was carried into an ante-room, and
from thoro to his homo. It Is not yet
known as to the weapon used in the
attack, but Lampkin is known to have
bad a billy, and tho nature of the
wound seems to fkvor tho presumption
that this was the weapon used. The
negro Janitor, Jerry Johnson, ran the
boys out of the building, and shortly
sfter they were arrested by the Mar
shal. Thoy professed entire I nnocenco

every Wednesday, tho labor Involved
in making the proin-r acknowledgment
is easily imagined. From one thou

occupied one of these harrsssing posi

she said, " for twelve o'clock every day,

and begin calling. Noon is a little
early to begin, but 1 have no choice,
and 1 continue on my rounds nntil
dark. On returning borne I havo no
time to rest, but, changing my visiting
costumo for an evening toilet, I go to
a ' state dinner party,' and immediately
on the conclusion of the feast begin my
round of gaslight reception and balls."
So many invitations are showered up- '
on these ladies that they are compelled
to keep a book in which to register
their engagements, not daring to trust
the fulfillment of them to an overtaxed
If any one is amazed that ladies are
willing to undergo such fatigue, they
must remember that unpopularity is

And it is not a matter concerning

unpopularity she provokes will includo

A MAN-EATING TIGER.
Dr. Fayrcr caused some sensation by
showing that daring one year 1869
6,219 deaths from snake tiito occurred
in the Bengal Presidency alone, among
a population of something more than
48,000,000 of souls. He now horrifies
us with accounts of the devastation
caused by man-eating tigers, which-oc-cosionally
cause villages aud even whole
districts to bo depopulated. In one in
stance, in tbe central provinces, a sin
glo tigress caused the desertion of thir
teen villages, whilo 250 square miles of
country were thrown out ot cultivation
before tbe oreature was shot Another
tigress, in 1869, killed 127 peoplo, and
stopped a publio road for many weeks
before it too succumbed to an English
In 1868 tbe Magistrate of Godavery
reported that that part of tho country
was overrun with tigers, no road safe,
and that a tiger had recently charged
a largo body of villagers within a low
hundred yards of the civil station. It
is impossible to give accurate statistics
for too whole of so vast a country as .
Hindustan, but Jordon corroborates
these stuloments by assorting that, in
the district east of Jubbulpore, in 1856
and previous years, on an average, be
tween two hundred and throe hundred
villagers wore killed annually. Tigers
apparently develop into man-eaters
when they are old and sluggish, and
the teeth aro somewhat decayed. Pre
ferring human flesh, they find, when
once tho awo natural to wild animals
at the presence of man is shakon off,
that he offers an easy and tempting
prey. In some districts they abound ;
while in others, as in Oude and Hobil
cund, one is oniy heard of about cvory
Tlio natives aro extremely supersti
tious respecting tigers, and in many
parts dread tho wrath of tho slain ti
ger's spirit almost moro than they feared
the creature when alive. Tho small
clavicles or shoulder bones, which aro
deeply imbedded in muscles, are es
teemed valiiahlo charms, while every
sportsman, or, indeed, every ono who
ia familiar with tiger skins, knows how
difficult it is Jo save the tigor's claws.
The whiskers are immediately plucked
out by tho sportsman's servants, on tho
tiger being shot, before their master
can come np, as they are deemed a
valuablo love philter. Those who aro
most rigorously honest in all other re
spects cannot refrain from thus muti
lating a skin.
On tho snot where a tiger has slain '
a human being, in the district round
Mirzapore, they erect a curious conical
mound of earth, which is ornamented
with somo colored wash for a coating,
a few flowers, and ono or moro singu
larly shaped pieces of pottory. It is
considered sacrilege to touch these, and
onto a year the Inhabitants of the sur
roftnding villages visit ths memorials
and worship there. Cniimirrs' Journal.
