3)However, the Russian warns Marlow that Kurzt could be terrible when ivory was at stake (?).
4)Kurzt spoke English to Marlow – his mother was half-English and his father half-French. Europe produced him.
5) He wrote a report about Africa in which he stated that white men were seen as gods by the natives and so they should use their power to improve Africa and its peoples.
6)He appeared to have a highly moral view of the European role in Africa. However, at the end of the document there was a single sentence in which he urged to kill all the natives, whom he called “brutes”.

#2. "ad" = "had"
#8. "confront" = "confronts"
Everything else looks ok.

2. had no faith
4. Use a semicolon, not a dash, to connect independent clauses.
"Europe produced him." = ???
6. comma after "document"
"in which he urged" whom? "to kill..."
7. This reads as an oxymoron. Needs to be rephrased. http://www.answers.com/oxymoron
8. Subject is "that" that refers to "abyss" = singular. How will you correct the verb?
Delete the period after the quotation marks.
9. comma after "desires"
change "himself" to "him"
