warm discussion engaged the attention of most of the persons at table, who failed to hear the remarks made by my countryman, or the friendly advice given him by the naturalist.

You may discover that the red men are not quite the heroes you suppose, and that the negroes are far better off with us than they would be in their own country."
"Faith! I cannot but desire to be guided by so fair an adviser," answered Rochford, in a rich Irish brogue, bowing as he spoke.
