THE FEEJEE SAVAGES.
THESE fiendish looking cannibals have be- come a complete nuisance in the city. They enter without ceremony at every open door, and demand food, clothing, and money in a tone and manner at once im- pudent and threatening. Surely some means of subsistence and place of shelter ought to be furnished these unfortunate wretches by their importers, or is it the intention of these gentlemen that Govern- ment shall be at the expense of re-shipping them for the Islands? Why do not the police interfere to prevent their intrusion into the residences of the citizens ? When our christian paupers are interdicted from the solicitation of public charity, is that privilege to be accorded to a horde of an- thropophagi, who have been introduced into the country at the instance of a private individual ? Or is it because the object for which they were seduced from their native wilds has failed, that they are now mercilessly left to their fate by their self-created masters, and that the citizens are subjected to insult and outrage from a mob of starving, and consequently, desperate intruders?
