African Forests.

Commenting on the principal topics touched upon by Mr Stanley, when speaking at the Albert Hall, London, the "Gardner's Chronicle" says:—"As to the forest, its monotonous gloom seems to have made a greater impression than anything else, but when we remember what remarkable discoveries were made m similar regions by Welwitsch, whose name as an explorer stands nob far below that of Stanley himself, it is obvious that to a naturalist; these fo.res.ts must bp teeming with interest;. Now that Stanley has shown that these forests are nob impenetrable, we may soon expect our Veitches, Bulls, Sanders, and other importers to furnish us with ' new plants ' of unusual variety and interest. What fevns, what pa]ms, what orchids, what aroids there muat be m these truly primaeval forests ! Mr Stanley's account is picturesque and graphic, but it leaves the impression that much remains to be said. Let us hope that some of the party managed to secure illustrations of the botany of that region."
