from Sierra Leone , giving account of the
movements of an army of ICO.OOO men in the
interior of Africa. The dispatch is dated
July 14th last , and was sent by United States
Consul Lewis , Mr. Lewis says ; I have the
honor to bring to the notice of the depart
ment of | state tbo fact of an extraordinary
movpmont among the Mohammedans of the
Nicrltlan regions extending from Timbuotuo
on the west coast.
It appears that in 1SSO a Maadingo named
Samudu , of extraordinary intelligence and
energy , conceived the idea that ho was called
of God to wage awor for the tuppreablon of
paganism and that of the opening of roads to
the coast , which in certain districts hnve
been for generations subject to excessive
blackmail and to the plundering of vagabond
tribes. During the last five yoaw ho has col-
ecUd an army , consisting of foot and \\oria \ of
about 100,000 mon. Mohammedan youth

only to tocuro the reward In the hereafter
promised to those who fight for their religion ,
but t carry of ! the rich spjils of time which
those expeditions that battle for tbo faith are
sure to win.
It Is said that Samudu's army Is divided
tuto three portions. Ono ia operating near
the he d waters of the Niger. This portion
recently drove certain French troops from the
cold regions of Bourse , of which they had
taken possession , and ore now besieging Bam-
maks , a largo town on the Niger , occupied

The third portion of the army is approach

by voluntary tutrtnder of all tribes on tha

most important Pagan kingdom on this side
of the Niger was Toollma , of which Talaba , a

generations had Uflaonced trade and politics

Another vary Important achievement of this
army is the destruction of the llooboo power ,

years has been a source of nunpyauco and loss
