Though an unimportant event in itself, it calls our attention, for the moment, from the far East, to the old arena of Africa, where for some years past the old maxim has been acted up to by most of the European nations X lltj, DUUUiU Lfll\C IVI1IJ UdYC tilC power, and they should keep who can.' It is more than passingly remarkable that Russia has never shown any desire to annex any por tion of the African continent ; but she is alone in her peculiarity. The British were the first among what might be called modern colonial empire builders, to plant their stan dard on African soil.
