THE TRISH CH OUCH BILL-OOHTXOTTED 3>ISCU8
6IOH Hf PABUAMEKT.
LONDON, Jane 15.-In the House ol Lords
to-night, * great number of petitions against
the Irish Church bill were presented Lord
Cairne? gave notice of a que ?tion to ascertain
if the government intended to endorse?the
reunions contained in Mr. Bright's last letter.
Lord Grey said he felt all the circumstances
under which the bill was set t to this Home,
bot *e urged tb? Ear! of Harrowby to recon?
sider his motion for postponement, in view ot
the consequences which might result should
it 9>e carried. If the bill before them passed
lt all it must bo materially amended. The
.Bouse of Loria now bad, bat aright not here?
after have, the power to amend. The result of
she late elections was emphatically in favor of
the bill ansi it would be imprudent for the
Lords to suppose it. If they were BOC cess (ul
for the mrment they would soon have it re?
turned, and perhaps rn a nv re objectionable
form. He< urged oonsideratio-j of the amend?
meats in a fair and conciliatory spirit, and
elrfortod the House to accept th? measure
with dignity, and not incur the odium of the
people vby collision ?with the House of Com?
mons, wb/cb represented the deliberate opin?
ion of the nation.
The Archbishop of Dublin complained of
the hard, ungenerous and illiberal maimer in
which the Church was treated, and denounced
the bill. He thought if it was necessary, it
might have been less severe.
The Bishop of St. Dairdo said the superior
sanctity of proper*" waa not to he considered,
but the b?st means to apply in view of the pab?
He' disapproved of the excessive demon?
strations of Protestantism, and he said he
valued its ascendancy, not as .it was politi- '
cal, tat as it-was moral and beneficial. He
considered tke Irish Church an anomaly. It
had failed to fulfil ita mission and promoted
discord. He urged the passage of the bill to
a second re ulmg, and afterwards the introduc?
tion of amendments.
The Dake of Richmond explained that
though he felt the inj oatiee of the bill, after
great hesitation he bad resolved to ut in op?
position to his party. He was sensible' of the
inexpediency of popular agitation, -and con?
vinced that the constitutional coane was to
pas? tbs bill, after amending the objectionable
clauses, and dsn ve the responsibility of accept?
ing the amendment; cr withdrawing ihe bill
on the government.

Mr. Aright baa written a letter to a meeting

A? A Bm Ax. HIDE ON A BICYCLE.-A t the Me?
chanic's Pavilion, yesterday, Paul Martineue
accomplished one of the most perilous teats
ever attempted at a public exhibition in this
city; by riding a velocipede backward and for?
ward on a single wire the whole length of that
mammoth bunding. The wire was stretched
from the front entrance of the pavi'ion to the old
Etelare gallery st the baok, a distance of two
undred feet. In tbe centre of the fountain
was placed an upright post to hold up the sag
of the wire, so that the velocipede had to pass
over a rather steep inclination to get over this
post. Martinette. on the first velocipede ever
used in the pavilion, ron the machine at a
smart pace to the top of tbe post and remained
there several seo -n. 8, when he started down
the incline on the other side, and balancad the
velocipede at the lowest level on the wire, and
then came the whole distance back to the
starting place, without turning himself or the
machine. When it is taken into consideration
thal tho wire, less than halt an inch thick, was
suspended twent feel from the floor, and 3
tumble w?hle! have probably been fatal, som a
idea of the peril of i he feat may be formed.
It was performed with as much ease as if the
velocipede had been on the floor.

SCIENCE AMONG TUE CELESTIALS.
Chinese Doctors and Systems of Medical
A writer in the Jane number of the Overland
Monthly describes the medical systems of the
Chinese in California as follows:
Judging from the number of their apothe?
cary stores, one wonld seppose that the Chi?
nese were large consumers of medicine. Nor
are apearances in this particular deceptive.
Ibero are in San Fraucisco a dozen or more
establishments where Chinese medicines are
prepared and*sold, and the busioes3 is said to
be very profitable. These establishments em?
ploy each, on an average, about four men in
cutting, mixing and putting up prescriptions,
aud in de-'oct mg and drying their thousand
and more remedies, gathered from every im?
aginable source. Every town in tbe country
where lhere are Chinese has its medicine store,
and scarcely an invoice of goods can go to tbe
trader in the most distant mining settlements,
or to tbe sutlers who follow np the camps of
the railroad laborers, but medicines will occu?
py a prominent place in it.
One would infer, therefore, that there must
be an extensive field for physicians wbo under?
stand the nature and application of these sup?
posed remedies; and this is found to be the
case. I he Chinese, wherever they go, are fol?
lowed up pretty closely by men professing to
be skilled in the healing art. lhere is, bow
ever, a great, diversity in the abilities and
qualifications of these physicians. Some wit b
out any medical education or training what?
ever, but because nothing better offers, buv,
beg, or borrow a set of medical books, put out
a sign, and begin writing prescriptions for ali
who apply to them; while others have grown
gray in the practice of their favorite art, hav?
ing done scarce anything all their days but to
study the diagnosis of diseases, the nature of j
medicinal herb?, minerals sud animal sub?
stances, together with the theories respecting
tbe effects of every variety of extraneous in?
fluence on diseases, as well as the influence of
the imps and other spirits.
. . * Not only have Chinamen the auda?
city to cist adrift from one doctor and go in
search of another, but (without seeming to
know of any possible im propriety in the act)
they may be under the oars of two or more
physicians at tho same time.
Within certain limits such a course is en?
tirely admi8sabie, and in some croumstanceB
necessary ; for the practice of the healing sri in
Cb ma is divided up into a fr rea - YOI ie ty Of
specialties, and it may happen that a patient
may be afflicted witb a complication of dis?
eases, some external, some internal, so that
two or three or more physicians may need to
be applied to before all of the patient's ail?
ments have been prescribed for; in which case
the greatly afflicted individual may be sub?
jected to the necessity of making himself the
receptacle of the stuff 'administered by several
doctors at the same time.
ibis, however, according to Chinese notions
of the internal structure of the body, is a less
hazardous experiment than we Western peo?
ple, who allow ourselves to read, and to be?
lieve, the modern works on physiology ano
anatomy, would suppose.
* . * There is now before us the medical
portion of the library of a Ch'nese scholar,
who, while he lays no claim to the rank of a
physician, is nevertheless frequently applied to
tor advice. This library cousists of only six
complete works, out of a list of two hundred
and seventy-six medical works. In one ot these
we find a catalogue of one thousand and twelve
medicines, ot whion there are from mel?is and
stone one hundred and thirty-eight kinds.
Grasses and vegetables (includingroots, stalki,
leaves, flowers and seeds) three hundred and
thirteen kinds. Trees, vwnether the medicine
be found in tbe ro it, trunk, bark, leaf, flower,
fruit or seed) one hundred and seventy-seven.
From the human body, twenty kinds. From
animals, ninety-one kinds. From fowls and
birds, thirty-four kinds. From bugs, worms,
snakes, shell-fish, turtles, flies, Ac , ninety-nine
kinds. Fruits, forty kinds. Of tbe "five,
grains," thirtv-eight kinds. Of the cabbage,
turnip and melon families, sixty-two kinds. lu
another work which lies before us there is a
fist of only four hundred and seventy-eight
medicines, of the same classes as above speci?
fied, but each class much abridged. Even the
first, however, is not a complete catalogue as
we have been told. The Chinese druggists
m Han Francisco claim to have upon their
shelves from six hundred to a thousand va?
Wo cite a portion of the list of medicines
taken from tbe human body. "Hair-cut fine
and used ia plasters. Curly bair. Woman's
milk. Dandruff. Teeth filings. Ears. Exu
via. Palings of finger and toe nails of preg?
nant women, wbicu nail-parings are reduced
to ashes by burning. Bone ot the forehead,
reduced to ashes. Beard of the upper lip*.
Blood. The placenta. The gall ; and other
things which cannot be written in the Over?
Tbe sacredness with which burran remains
are usually kept may start a question in the
minds of some as to the manner of procuring
certain of the above-named articles. Tue
doubt, however, will be removed when the
reader understands that the bodies of felons
who are executed, except where friends appear
to claim and bury them, are not thus religious?
ly regarded and carefully ?uterred ; while tho
bodies of very young children are often simply
eewed up iu matting and tossed into a tree, or
exposed on the surface ot the earth among tho
tombs for dogs and vultures to prey upon.
The list pf medicines ir >m the animals be?
gins as follows : Dragon's bones. White drag?
on's bones, bis teeth sud horns. Musk of l he
musk deer. Ox bezoar. Bear's gall. Ivory.
Deer's glue. Glue made from a black mule's

cord. Hoof of a white horso, bis thigh; also
the same of a bar Loree. Bull's manure. Kara's
horns. Marrow of sheep's bones. Sheep's
gall, lungs, heart, kidneys, teeth, flesh, horns.
Chamois' horns. Deer's boms (the tip of Ibo
horn is regarded as especially valuable for re?
storing the blood. ) Bainoceroa' hom. Tiger's
bones, claws and eyes. Dog's gall, heart,
brains, teeth, ekull, blood, and so on, through
a long lust, up to ninety-four varieties, embrac?
ing, perhaps, everything tbe reader will be apt
to imagine, as well as manv things that he
would not ?bink of as possible to oe brought
into service in the healing art, and certainly
several things which we will not copy here.
All these are ia their catalogue of doctor's
stuff, bot many of the articles m the list are
rarely use!, aud som9 are designed only for
The bulk of the medicines used by the phy?
sicians and Bold by tbs druggists consists of |
vegetable substances of every variety. The
prescriptions which we bave examined call
largely for this class, viz : Fer roots and herbs,
leaves, flowers, bark, fruits, ic.
* * * But physicians are proverbially a
long-suffering and benevolent class of men; in?
deed, it is impossible tor one to bo a good and
acceptable physician and not exercise tb ese
qualities; therefore we know ot no class of men
who will be more ready to take into considera?
tion the question as to what may bo done even
here ia California toward-* helping soma of |
these bright Chinese youths to acquire a gen
nine and finished radical education, such as
may fit them not only for practitioners, but
prepare them also for translating medical
works into their own language, and for estab?
lishing Icc areubipe in their own country. Tho
Medical Missionaries m Ubina have bdub* labor?
ing with this object in view, and if their brethren
in California., wuo have BO promising a field
tor the development of tho? benevolent
nature in this direction, will work m concert
with those on the otner side of the water, th :y
w.ll ody be doing what we havp learned to ex?
pect from this so honorable aud indispensable
branch of the learned profession. It will be
Been that the way is preparing for such plans
as we have suggested, and for revoluti winns
altogether the system of the Chinese medical
practice, when we add that very many China?
men in this country have a ready learned the
superiority ot our system over that of their
own middle kingdom, and when sick they wish
none bat American doctors; and more would
follow their example but for their timidity and
a laca of the means of on introduction to our
respectable physicians, and but for the dread
of larger bills thsn they might be able to pay.

and the Kinging; of Bella.
Tbe thunderous melody of the great Boston
Peace Jubile - is begun at last. The first of
the series of monster concerts, which are to
j render tbie week memorable in the annals of
the Hob, took place on Tuesday last. A Bos?
ton dispatch of Tuesday night, to the Washing?
ton Chronicle, says:
All accounts concur in pronouncing tbe first
day of the Jubilee the most original and effec?
tive event of the kind in America. At least 30.000
people were present. Twelve thousand of
i them were musicians and sincere, and yet
there was room for at least 15,000 more. Ole
Bull led the instrumental part of the Jubilee.
. There were three conductors, headed by Pat?
rick 8. Qilmore, an adopted citizen of Irish
birth, and the order of the great army of musi?
cians was not less admirable than that of the
immense audience. Representatives from many
of the musical societies of the dill .-rent States
were present. There were 3175 soprano singers,
2516altos, 1959 tenors, 2G06basaos; total, 10,266.
There were 689 violins, flutes, trumpets, horns,
drams, Ac Over 1100 persons took part in the
military band. i
The wonder of the exhibition was tbe Jubilee
organ, claimed to be the smallest and most
powerful in the world. It was built by E. & G.
O. Hook. The harmony filled tho vast space
with its wondrous volume. It is only ten fpot
high, and the total number of pipes is 1011,
comprised in thirteen speaking stops. It is so
built that all the pipes are exposed to view. It
is a marvel of ingenuity and effect. It is im?
possible to describe tbe effect of the perform?
ances. Tbe "Star-spangled Banner" was given
by the immense corps, and the cannon outside
the building sounded in exact unison with the
chorus. The guns were fired off from the in?
side of the building by Gilmore, using electric
wires. The effect was truly wonderful, and I
thousands melted into tears. The Anvil Chorus
was equally successful and novel.
The following telegram gives an account
more in detail of the day's doings:
The inauguration of tbe National Peace Ju
bileo took place this afternoon. Bev. E. E.

I The chorus and instrumental performers
numbered irom 10 000 tb 12,000, and the au?

threatening weather. Fully half tbe people in?
side the Coliseum were ladies:
The first piece on the program nn, the
choral, "A Strong Castle is our Lord," was
sung by the fu'l chorus, with orchestral and
organ accompaniment, under the direction of
Mr. Gilmore. Tbe choras comprised 10 000
voices, and the orchestra 1100 instruments.
The vocalization of the chorus was as distinct,
and the enunciation ss crear as that of a church
At the close tbe audience testified its appre?
ciation bylong continued applause. The over?
ture to "Tannhauser" was then performed by
j a select oicbestra of six hundred musicians
under tbe direction ot Julius Eichberg. It was
carefully and thoroughly performed, and was
conceded to be a success, eliciting rounds of
"Qlorv be to God on High.'' from Mozart's

Tho violin obligaba was performed by two
hundred violins, led by Ole Bull, under the
direct i m of Mr. Gilmore. Pare pa's solo was

The next selection was "The Star-spangled

the organ, and the entire force of musicians,
together with the chiming of church-bells and
thc firing of artillery. This was one o' the
greatest features of tbe day, and was a grand
The audience, arter joining in tho chorus to

triotic excitement, and it was repeated with
renewed energy and harmony, closing with an?
other outburst of e ithusiaam.
After tbe intermission, the "'Hymn to Peace,''
written by Dr. Holmes to the music ot Keller's
"American Hymn," was suns; by the whole

The "Coronation March' was well received.
Toe "Anvil Chorus" was given by the entire

Dael Between a Spanish Newspaper
h dit or of ftew York and a Cuban
Origin of the Affair-The .Heeling
Tbe Cuban >Uoi Through Botta Legs
at thc First Fire.
Our tolcgrama have already informed our
readors of a duel fou erbt on Friday last at Lon
dy's Lane, Canada, between a Spaniard and a
Cuban, in which tho latter was wounded. Thc
New York Sun says of the sffiir :
Tho weekly journal published in this city in
the interests ot Spanish tyranny, entitled El
Cronista, o .ves whatever success it has ob?
tained in tbe way of circulation to tho Cuban
war for liberty, which calls forth the earnest
sympathies ol our population, and their con?
sequent interest in everything wbiob may bear
upou it on either side. Taking advantage of
that circumstance, the editor. Mr. Ferrer de
Canton bas been in the practice of filling
hie journal with exaggerated reports and
denunciations of the Cuban cause and
its followers. These misrepresentations
have led to bitter enmity, and nume
rous mall eu gos to fight have been
received by the editor of El Cronista from Cu?
bans to whom bis views have giren offence;
but no ono was able to draw him out, as he
"did not wish to fight tho whole island." At
length a Ber ICH of s turbal papers be ?a o to ap?
pear semi-occasionally, under tbe title of "El
Ferrero de Oontiya." a play upon Ferrer's
name, which handled the latter's character
withent gloves, ibis exaaperaieu ice opamaru
to such an extent that he published an edito?
rial article denouncing the unknown author as
a coward, and daring him lo reveal his name.
On the following day a Senor Porta, a Vene?
zuelan by birth, but long a resident of Havana,
publicly proclaimed himself tbe writer of tbe
offensive articles and assumed the entire re
spoosibilit y of their contents. Simultaneously
with this announcement a 1 friend" of Senor
Porta called upon the editor of ?1 Cronista
and offered bim the alternative of redacting
all the slanderous articles which had appeared
in his paper on the Cubans and their canse, or
of fighting a duel "to the death," according to
the statutes of the code. The first born of tbe
di le i ma being out of the question, an agree?
ment was immediately made to fight m Can?
ada, just outside the boundaries of the United
Pistols were the weapons chosen, and the
Sot selected was within a short distance of
e famous battle-field of Lundy's Lane. Ac?
cordingly, on Friday last, the party consisting
of tbe two principals and their respective
seconds-GnLierez de la Vega, late Civil Gov?
ernor of Havana, for Ferrer, and Don Perico
Almentero, of Havana, and Colonel Bivas, of
New Granada, for Porto-took the train for
their destination. No unneceBBarv time was
lost after their arrival in selectinq the gronnd
and arranging preliminaries, and at 5 o'clock
on Sunday morning they went to a retired
grass-grown spot, partially bidden by trees,
and then and there, and with no spectators
save their seconds, and the astonished birds,
the pistols were examined and carefully loaded,
the cruel surgical instruments with their sug?
gestive accompaniment of lint and wrappers
made ready for instant use, and tbe brief space
which should separate them from death calm?
ly and mathematically measured off,
The choice of position was awarded to Fer?
rer, and each man 'walked to his appointed
place, with the weapon of death firmly clench
el io his baud, and a fierce determination
gio ring on his countenance. Each stood side?
ways on his chosen spot, clinched his left band
resting on his bips behind, t hree shots were
exchanger, an j a fourth was demanded. The
seconds stepped to one side, the surgeons
s 03d in anxtons expectation, and for a mo?
ment there was silence.
One-The mea halt turned, and raising their
shining weapons, run their eyes along the bar?
'1 wo -An eager nervousness dashed through
their limbs and made them rigid as death.
Three-A simultaneous doable flash, whiff
of smoke and sharp repoit, and Senor Porto
half tamed, staggered and fell shot through
Instantly the participants gathered around
[?the wounded man, the surgeon > examined and
dressed bis hurts, and after they had declared
that he wonld not be able to continue tbe con?
test, be was hurried into one of two carriages
in waiting, whle Ferrer's party got into tbe
other, and both were out of sight in a minute.
Senor Porto was taken to the International
Hotel, at Niagara Falls, where he lies in a crit?
ical condition, ?nd Ferrer and party returned
to New York, carrying a doubt of Porto's life or
A few hours after the duel the entire party
were arrested by the Canadian authorities, but
through tbe aid cf Mr. Falt?n, of the Interna?
tional Hotel, they were released.
