nr York, ilaj 13. Adricea from General
tirant represent a very anxious feeling through
Asia respecting the reetrictiona on Chinese emi
grants to America, Grant's response to an ad
dress of Chinese merchants at l'enang, in which
tbey aa!c bio to exert bis powerful influence in
tbeir bebali to advocate the remoral of thoee re
strictions and thua restore the intercourse
between the two cations to iu former footing,"
was a vcrj decided remonstrance against the
contract system which be declared to be slavery.
"On that point," be said, " Americans would
naturally feel strong!. It was in order to free
one race from slavery that we fought a long war.
After the terrible sacrifices made during the war
to free the negro, it could n t be expected that
Americans would consent to the revival of another
form of slavery in which the Chinaman was tho
victim. He said this was the objection on the
part of the Americans to Chinese emigration. lo
other respects they bad nne but the kindest
feelings toward the Chinese people, and would
extend to them if they chooae to make tbeir
borne with u the welcome they extend to the
rest of the world." In his ad J rem he does not
once allude to the prejudice against cheap labor,
nor to the peculiar sentiment of California. lie
did not doubt, and no one could, that in the

cfTect at home, the American people would treat

country the a-ijluni they offer to the rent of the
New York. May 20 The Intcr-Ocaahic Cnal
Congress in Pari i attracting much ucwopaper
attention. A Il'ratJ special cable to-day una:
Judiog Jrota the general tone of the discoH.ion
and what I hear outside, the Wjse-Panama route
id the one likely to be adopted. Indeed, many
said to me before tho Congress met, that the ac
ceptance of this route was a foregone conclusion.
Xi hether this be true or not. I never certainly saw
any Convention of the kind so thoroughly pre
pared, for many of these speeches wero printed
and circulated before spoken from tho rostrum.
A decision will probably be reached oo Friday.
The Times thinks the Congress deeply in earn
est, composed of men whoee minds are already
made up as to the feasibility of the canal.
Tbe question with thein is not "shall it bo
done." but when and where ? The choice of the
congress appears at this moment to be between
the Snrj Lias route, with its enormous tcnncl, and
tbe Nicaragua with its long succession of locks on
both sides ot the lake.
New York, May 20. The Herald says: In
cearly erery letter that Gen. Grant sends to Rev.
Dr. Newman, he speaks of the real and enjoyment
bo has in bis travels, and in two or three recent
communication, referring to certain rtewpaper
clippings sent to him, he said he bad no desire to
enter public life again : that be bad served his
country to tbe best of bis ability for nearly six
teen years, and bo thinks tbe people ought to
release him from any further claim on bis service.
Tbe doctor disclaimed any political significance
attaching to the proposed reception to Grant on
bis arrival in San Francisco. He baa been waited
on by a committee to give advice and take part
in the reception. The only motive in tho minds
of tbe movers was to honor the foremost Ameri
can citizen in bis own country.
New York, May 16. Tbo World has the fol
lowing editorial : The work of ruin has begun
along the Pacific Coast. From Panama to-day
we have the news of the bombardment of three
Peruvian ports. At one of these. Moliendo, a
creation of the great railway king, Meiggs, which
has supplanted Way, as the port of Arcquiba,
and the region beyond, stretching to Lake Titi-
caca and .Bolivia, Chilean men-of-war seem to
have destroyed extensive railroad works. Inqui
rjae wa-i the centre of the Peruvian nitrate
commerce, and there, as well as at Moliendo and
at I'isuqua, the energy of recent years had cs
tabliabed those railway communications with the
interior which are to Peru what navigable rivers
are to other countries. Vc can see no reason
why tho Government of the L'nited States should
not make an eff rt at Icaet to intervene in this
dismal South American conOict before i; becomes
hoplcvxly envenomed, as an impartial friend and
umpire. We have pent out an American Ad
miral to sit as Vicc-Preei-leiit of the Congre of
the Isthmian Canalizers in Paris, and certainly
it is as important for us to prevent the people of
Pacific South America from putting back their
own prosperity hall a century as it is to find out
a new anJ short cut for our yet almost non
existent commerce with them.
New York, May 21. A Herald special dated
Valparaiso, April 16tb, via Kio Janeiro, April
26t!i, aays : The Chilean gunboat Magalloncs
was attacked by tho Peruvian corvette Union,
carrying twelve seventy pounders and a crew
ot 40O men, assisted by tbe Pelcateayo, carrying
two scventy-pouodc.rs and four forty-pounder
guns. The engagement took place at tho mouth
of the river Loa, forming the harbor to the port
of the same name. This river forms tho bound
ary line, near the coast, between Bolivia and
Peru. The two Peruvian vessels fired 150 shots
at the Mtgallones. which fired 40 shells and solid
stKt in return. The firing of the Peruvians was
very wild, the Mngaloncs only being struck once
and thai by a ricochet shot. Tho Union then
stoppel firing and escaped with the Pclcctrayo,
which was badly damaged. The Chilean iron
clad Almtranle Cochrane bid gone in pursuit.

Plain Talk by Bismarck. Berlin;, May 10th.
Prince Bismark's parliamentary soiree Satur
day was less numerously attended than the pro
vious one, the Free Traders sending but a thin
contingent. To the deputies from Alsaco Lor
raine the Prince was most affable. The appoint
ment of General Manteuftl as Governor of these
provinces, be said, was certain, and a better man
lor the fK-st could not be founl. The Chancellor
then held forth at great length to the listening
deputies on fiscal matters, dwelling upon the
pressing necessity for protecting agriculturists,
especially petty holders, against foreign compe
tition. A wool tax was also sorely needed. If
agriculture in Germany were not to be complete
ly destroyed, the duty on beer and hoj must
be got through. Ilelcrring to the tariff debates,
be observed that if any one thought they would
wear hi patience out by prolonging the discufa
: n. they were very much mistaken, lie would
remain in Berlin till September, if necessary
but successfully finished the thing must be. The
honorable members were clearly not yet acquaint
ed with tbe tough and dogged perseverance of
Prussians officials. Later on the Prince referred
incidentally to the silver 6alcs of the Prussian
Bank, which Le would like to 6ee stopped.
Londov, May 10. The diplomatic correspond

standing relative to the strict execution of the
treaty, and also in reeard to the administrative
autonomy of Eastern lloumelia.
Killing a Thousand Zulus.
Lord Chelmsford's Relief or Colonel Pear
A correspondent of the London Telegraph
writing from St. Vincent, South Africa, says :
Tbe relief of Colonel Pearson has been accom
plished by tbe column under the personal com
mand of Lord Chelmsford. After difficult
marches, our troops, who had already been
sighted from Ekowe, camped at Gingiblovo to
ward sundown on the 1st of April. Much rain
was falling about dusk and through the night,
and it bad been signalled from the Fkovre church
tower that tbe Zulus were drawing in upon the
general's position with very large numbers.
Lord Chelmsford had taken every possible pre
caution against surprise. The faces of the
camp were covered with lines of shelter trenches;
tbe guns posted at tbe angles, and all positions of
A little before 6 o'clock a. m. large masses of
Zulus began to show all ovr the hill tops in our
vicinity on the northeastern side of tbe camp.
The thickets in this direction seemed on a sudden
to swarm with the enemy, who, with their usual
tactics, were seen pouring in a stream of shields
and black bodies, right and left, so as gradually
to envelop this quarter of our Ingger. As soon
as their order of battle was thus formed, they
came down in a most resolute style upon tho
side of the camp defended by the Sixtieth Rifles,
raising their curious war cry and brandishing
their weapons. lhc foremost portion of the
Rifles were lying inside the trenches already
mentioned, and their support behind them bad a
second line of shelter, as well as the laagered
wagons, from which to fire, and the Gatlings
were stationed to tho right.
As the enemy drew out of the grass and thorn
bushes into a dense semi-circle of advancing war
riors, the whole front of our camp broke out in
to a sheet of fierce flame wbicii ran from corner
to corner without iutermission, in rattling volleys
of a frightful close rango musketry. Nothing, it
might be thought, could live belore this terrible
and perpetual roll of the breech-loader, and yet
our gallant though savage foes crowded their way
onward through the hails of death. While
spreading now to tho right, now to the left, as if
to find some break in the wall o! lire, their cen
tral swarms kept desperately pressing f iwrrd
past the fallen bodies of their comrades. Thee
behind sprang to the front over the cor- sen of
their fellows, only to sink to tho ground them
selves and be eucceeded by fresh desperadoes.
It was impossible for men to perish with mere
magnificent contempt of death, but they could
not quite reach even our outer trenches. Alter
again and again charging up to within twenty or
thirty yards of the muzzle of our Martini-Henna
despite tho withering tempest of bullets rained
upon litem, to say nothing ot the Gatling hre and
the rockets these heroic savages gave tbo game
up at last upon this facs of tbe camp, leaving the
front of our defences piled with dead and
Another large body bad meanwhile concen
trated on the other flank of our laager, and just
as tbo first attack was failing a second and most
spirited attempt to rush our positions was tried
to this new quarter. It the courage ot tbe
enemy was admirable, so was the coolness with
which the men of tbe Ninety-hrst and riltv-
seventh met the swarms of yelling thousands
which closed in toward the trenches. This last
effort was led lv a chief of high rank named
Dubalmanxi, w ho was mounted on a good horse.
and rode in the thick of bis regiments close up to
the lacger. ibe onset was lor some minutes
very formidable, and once inside our lines such
men might have done anything; but the never
ceasing rattle of the breech-loaders could not be
conlrontcd, and on tbo point of forcing on that
band-to-hand fight which they wanted, the dar
ing barbarians melted away again, and finally
abandoned the attack.
A ringing British cheer was raised upon this
second retreat of the enemy, and the word was
given for the mounted troops to dash out. This
was done by the cavalry aud liarrow s mounted
infantry, accompanied by some of the swift-footed
native contingent, who flew forth from the elicl-
ter of the wagons and pursued the now disheart
ened survivors. Once turned and beaten, the
Zulu makes no further stand, and in the head
long bunt which ensued almost as many of the
foe as bad fallen before the musketry and tbe fire
of tbe Gatlings were overtaken and despatched in
the bush, rrom the first appearance of Lety
wayo's army upon the bill tops and amid the
hollows till the last fierce blows dealt on the fly
ing savages, the affair did not occupy two hours.
But it was sharp work while it lasted, and
though the British loss in killed was only five,
and in killed and wounded together fifty for all
contingents, yet some nine or ten hundred Zulus
lay dead around U9 as tbe sun rose bigb. Tbeir
total loss is estimated at fifteen hundred, with
many more wounded.

Chinese and Foreigners. Thomas W. Enox
has written a little book which the Harpers pub
lish in the Half-Hour Series, called 44 John, or
our Chinese Relations." He thinks tbe Chinese
government and people would like to send tbe
foreigner, bag and baggage, out of their country.
Tbe whole book may be read in an hour, and it is
very amusing ; here is a passage :
From ali I have beard, both from natives and
foreigners, I am sure they would willingly tear
up tbeir treaties with us, recall tbeir own people
from other land", and permit no more emigration,
and pay every foreigner now living in China the
full value of his property there, and give him
free passage to his home. Of course there are
many exceptions, bnt it may be set down as a
rule tbat the Chinese detest the foreigner, and
only tolerate him because they must. The feel
ing pervades all classes of tbe people, and not
only the people, but the lower animals. Chi
nese ponies snort and start when you come near
them, the dogs bark at you, the cats enarl and flee
with enlarged tails and elevated back hair, and
even the meek and ruminant cow takes a shy at
you with bcr horns.
On this latter point I could relate a harrowing
tale of bow a iriend and myself were pursued by
an infuriated cow In a Chinese city, and how she
would not be turned from her purpose, but kept
after us for some ten minutes or more. My
friend ran swiftly, and kept ahead of tbe beast ;
of course I wouldn't be so undignified as to run
from a cow, but I managed to keep at the side
of my fleet friend, and came out a trifle in ad
vance of him. We furnished free amusement to
a crowd of Chinese, who looked and laughed,
thinking it was capital fun to 6ee a couple of bar
barians pursued by a Chinese cow, and never
stopping to consider how the barbarians might
like it. But the tables are turned, and more
than turned, in San Francisco and Melbourne,
where the white man has a great deal ofeport
at Chinese expense. In each of those cities it is
not unusual to see a large dog pursuing a
frightened Celestial, amid the jeers of a group of
voters who have set tbe brute to his work.
