GALTON, F.R.G.S.-Does Captain Allen corroborate the remark of Dr. Baikie as to the great improvement in the type of the African as you go inland? CAPTAIN ALLEN.-I cannot say that I found much physical improvement, though, in civilization, the tribes on the coast are far surpassed by those of the interior. I met with two remarkable instances of tact and courtesy : one was the king of the Filalahs at Rabba; the other a judge at the town of Iddah ; neither of them had seen white men before. Nevertheless, in other parts inland I found tribes in a very low condition.
