i OIITAU SEITIIU Sirgtilar Eace cf Human Eeir-gs. There are now in London two very singular hu min beings, of a race which bus hitherto been very little known to the civilized world. They came from South Africa, where they are called Earthmcn. They are totally distinct from nil other known African races as much so as if thy had been dropped upon this earth from a no'ther planet. They are diminutive in siza mere pygmies and unacquainted even with the art of building huts. They shelter themselves in caves and crevices of the earth ; when the?e are wonting, they mike artifical scoopingson the surface, which they line with leaves nnd cover with branches. The Hottentots and Bushmen arc the avowed enemies of the Earthmcn, and when they will meet them will shoot them down like vermin. The poor little defenceless Earth men have no refuge hut in holes, trees, or thick ets, and the tribe is fast verging to extinction. Thev are a poor weak people one of Natures freaks and destined not to perpe...
