that the policy of tbe Administration is to pay tbe

that we can completely refund the debt at a rate

Fite. Mr. C. Koopmanschap, of San Francisco,
is now in this city making arrangements for bring
ing to this country, in 1870, a supply of Chinese
laborers. After visiting tbe west be will leave, on
Nov. 4 lb. for China, to retain in the spring of
1670, bringing with hia as many Celestials as be
may bave contracted for.
These laborers will not be coolies, as Mr. Koop
manschap disavows any idea of being connected
with the coolie trade, but vol notary immigrants
who agree to the terms offered by him and wbo
come hither with tbe full knowledge and consent
of the Chinese authorities for the purpose of bet
tering their pecuniary condition. A contract bas
already been closed with the Texas Land Company,
of which Mr. P. N. Spofford, of the Ann ofSpofford.
Tileton A Co of this city, is the President, for
supplying fiVe thousand Chinamen to work on the
lands owned by tbe Company in Texas.
Another contract bas been made with a leadiog
land-owner in Mississippi to supply several hun
dred laborers for tbat State. The price paid for
coolie labor is about $4 per month, whereas Mr.
Koopraanscbap's Chinamen are to receive an aver
age of 810 per month and found ; and bands em
ployed to work on Railroads will get $15 per
month and found. Mr. Koopmanschap goes to
Washington to-day to explain bis project to the
Federal authorities, and to correct tbe impression
entertained by some tbat be designs to import coo
lies or others wbo are not free, voluntary immi
grants. He avows tbat bis only desire is to provide
tbe means and found a system whereby a mucb
needed supply of laborers may be furnished for
tilling tbe now waste lands of the South, and for
meeting tbe demand for labor that exists on all the
lines of railroad projected and building in tbe
west. From Washington Koopmanschap goes to
St. Louis, Memphis and New Orleans, where be ex
pect to enter into further contracts. He bas
already supplied tbe Central Pacific and other
railroads with Chinese laborers to the number of
about 30.000, and holds certificates from tbe officers
of these Companies showing that they bave given
ample satisfaction to tbeir employers. On bis re
turn from China Mr. Koopmanschap will brtog

Thk Health or Nafoixox. It is not an extrava
gant statement to say tbat the civilized world is
intensely interested in tbe physical condition of the
Emperor of the French. Every beating ot his pule
is reported instantly by the swiftest method of
communication ; and each symptom of bis precari
ous state is canvassed and calculated upon by
millions. All Europe and America wait in breath
less attention tbe issue of life or dcatb, now being
decided with uncertain chances in the person of
tbe Ruler of France. Tbe stocks, always the most
sensitive of human agencies to tbe effect of change
and excitement, respond in weakness or in strength
as tbe news from France comes favorable or to the
contrary. There is something deplorable in the
consideration, that so little of this universal anxiety,
and unnsual interest is due to any special sympa
thy or profound regard for tbe man whose exist
ence is by circumstances made so important. Con
ceding much that is claimed for Louis Napoleon
in behalf of bis ability, and acknowledging that
to covera, without dispute for twenty years, the
land of revolutions, entitles him to rank as a states
man of power; no one will maintain that he ever
possessed tbe affections of bis own race, or that high
admiration the world bestows on tbe natural and
beloved rulers of the people. Whatever else may
have paid tribute to the executive force of the
Third Napoleon love bas had no votive offering
for him. Yet, should the final misfortune come to
bim. it is not unlikely that It may prove to be a
calamity. France has been so accustomed to sub
mit to him that she has no mature plan, no certain
ty for the future, no settled convictions as to her
course and career in tbe event of death. There
conld be no more alarming commentary on the
evils of an unstable Government than tbe startling
facts tbat tbe tenure of peace, the safety of
social institutions, tbe value of property, and the
welfare of forty millions of human beings bangs
this moment upon the life of a single man. It is
by such terrible lessons that mankind will learn
tbat no Government can be either peaceful or per
ianal unless it has its origin and authority from
those wbo live under it. While the event of
Napoleon's death may upheave, for the time being,
the French nation, and convulse all commercial
and financial centres, it can only terminate by ad
vancing France to a more fresh and popular gov
ernmental system ; and enlarging tbe faith and in
creasing the security in republican institutions.
Four aod one-balf years ago. upon tbe topmast
round of fame an American President was foully
assassinated. In the annals of this world there are
few examples of the sincere affection of which a
whole people can render to their leaders, or to tbe
great grief a mighty nation can feel for the loss of
a statesman, as the sudden and bloody death of
Lincoln developed. Yet Government passed quiet
ly on without hesitation or friction ; society, save
in its sorrow, showed no ripple of disquiet; tbe
monetary values were unchanged; the passions
of men. though outraged by the atrocious deed,
were subdued by their grand reverence for tbe
law ; and tbe nation lived, though the ruler died.
History will not fail to mark tbe contrast, we trust,
for the benefit of tbe world.
