Excerpt from Maria: A South American Romance

In a business way we do, of course, know some thing of these otherwise unknown lands and peo ples; but the information that comes to us through commercial channels is not of the most edifying nature, and it is highly objective in the matter of its point of view. By a happy coincidence, I find in this morning''s press despatches an interview with an enterprising citizen of the United States who is described as being engaged in the transportation business in Colombia, and who just now is having built at Pittsburg a brace of steamboats for use upon the Magdalena and Cauca rivers. This per son, in his way, probably, is typical; and, from his own stand-point, the views which he expresses con cerning the people of Colombia are far from ?atter ing. The natives are not of an industrious or mechanical turn of mind, he says; and he adds'' At Bogota the people think a great deal more of literary pursuits than of manufacturing.
