No country j Vitliin the habitable portions of the globo is absolutely destitute of inhabi- tants ; nnd whenever tlio redundant populations of tho old world seek to plant their feet on new soil, tbey aro met by a people in possession. That people is almost invariably a savage one -a community which enn bo bound by no treaty, and kept to no compact, except by the display of superior force. Hence occurs that conflict of races which rexes the civilised colonist, and ultimately compasses the destruction of the ! aboriginal. It has been proved prae tically impossible for a civilised and a savage race to dwell together ia amity. Thero can be no equality between them. They cannot bo governed by tho same laws. Indeed, uncivilised communities practically acknowledge no law except that might is rig...
