Tin: latest mail brings tho nows of tho rati
fication by tho U. S. Sctiato of tho trcatioB
between tho (Invornmonta of China and tho
United Slates in i elation to enmmorco and

sition to tho troaties whon thoy wore lirst
transmitted to tho Senate, only four votes
wero opposod to tho ratification on the fl'iiil
ballot. Senator Hoar of Massachusetts was
tho only pronounced opponent. Tho papers
gjvo tho following incident in connection with
liis speech in opposition to ratification: "Tho
MnssuchiiBotts Senator had just brought ono
of bin glo'viug pciiotls ton close with tho
Sciiptiirnt quotation, " For God hath mado of
ono blood nil nations of mon to dwell on tho

Senator from California, exclaimed, ' (lo on ;
quote tho remainder of tho scntenco." "Thcio
ib no more of il," said. Hoar. " Oh I yes,
I iioro is," lojoinud Miller, " For tho Apostle
Paul siid, in addition to thu words which thu
Souator has quoted. ' ni'd hath determined tho
bounds of their habitation.' " This dextrous
turning of thu tables was grcotud with it peal
of laughter fiom all parts of lliu Senate cham
ber, amid" which tlio Massachusetts Senator
coiilusedly attempted to question tho accuracy
of tho quotation ; but Millet quickly piociirod
a copy of tho Bible, and turning to St. Paul's
speech on Mars Hill, lead tho whole pasangc,
mill thu Sena to roared again at Hoar's discom-littno."
