At a late hour last night we received infor?

operators, which, as already stated in THE NEWS,
began at Cincinnati a day or two ago, had -be?

as a consequence, no telegrams or any character
would be transmitted. It ls scarcely possible

It Is certain that the new ministry will be
announced day after to-morrow.
The Journal Official hos not yet published a Hst

M. Olllvler, states to-day that th? ministry is con?

on Monday: Minister of Justice, Emile Ollivier;
Interior, Chevano D'Valdrome; Foreign Affairs,

Bourboau, Chasscloup, Lanbat, Le Bocnf and
Regnanlt de Genevilly will retain their positions.
Berthemy, the French Envoy at Washington,
has declined the portfolio of the Interior.
Of the ministry as thus given by La Libert*,
four of the members are senators and members of
the Chamber of Deputies. Gaudln, Minister Plen?
ipotentiary of Foreign Affairs, was the former
Minister Plenipotentiary and also Counsellor of
State. Chevano D'Valdrome. Minister of the

It ls stated that the Emperor signed the decree
confirming the new ministry last night. To-day
the Emperor received the Diplomatic Corps. In
answer to the usual address he returned his
thanks, and said that the presence of all foreign
representatives was proof of the friendly rela?
tions existing between their respective govern?
ments and France. He then conversed freely
with the chiefs of the varions legations.

IS CUBA SQUELCHED?
The Intelligence of the Collapse ot the
Revolution Denied-Alleged Canards
from Washington-Who Originated
' them and Why.
Don Miguel Aidama, the president of the
Cuban Junta, of New York City, publishes a card
in the newspapers, in which he says that he bad
read with indignation a dispatch from Coba, al- ;
leging thc existence of a circular from the Junta,
urging the Cubans to give up the contest, Ac., I
and prononnces it false in every particular. A :
correspondent of the Baltimore Gazette, writing j
from Washington on Sunday last, says : !
In anticipation of the debate npon Coban af?
fairs, which is to come off in the Senate npon the
reassembling of (Joagrcss, the Spanish agents
here, and the government of the United States,
are busy at work la the manufacture of "disas?
ters" to the Cuban cause. A dispatch was sent
from this city on Friday last, which contained a
"report" to the efltoct that in Valmaseda's dist rict
seven hnndred Cubans, with their officers, had 1
Asid down their arms," and that in the district 1
CT Remedios the?hief Coco and all his men had 1
surrendered. It is known that this dispatch, if :
not altogether false, is at least an exaggeration.
It ls farther known that lt was concocted at the
State Department, with the assistance of the
Spanish minister, and thence eommunicated to
the Associated Press.

Spain ovekpiba. What are his motives the pub?

What will be the upshot of thc insurrection in ]
Cuba, or what the exact state of affairs there may ]
be at this moment, it would be difficult to state or <
predict. This much at least may be said with un?
disputed troth: That the "reports irom Havana," ;
especially those manipulated al the State Depart- '
f meut herc, are not entitled to thc slightest credit. <
1 have now before me a dispatch, said to have ;
been sent from thence, giving an aceonnt of "a <
circular" received there, purporting to have been I
issued by "the Cuban Junta at New York." Il ls ?
stated that this -circular" orders the Insurgents
to lay down their arms, giving as a reason for
tko abandonment of the insurrection, the failnre ?
of a recent filibustering expedition, and the In?
ability of the Juuta to send more men. and the '
farther disheartening action or the American gov- !
eminent in permitting gunboats to sail from New
Tork. The Havana dispatch contains other sen?
sational matter, to the effect that the Insurrection
ls entirely subdued. Now, 1 have lt in mv power 1
to nail these Iles to the counter, upon thc"author- 1
ity of Cuban agents now at Washington.
The canard is evidently founded upon a letter :
written by a Cuban. Carlos de Seda?o, who ts not
only no', a member of thc Cuban Junta, oran
agent of any kind of the Cuban leaders, bat (as
he distinctly declares in the said letter) is now, !
and has always been, inimical to the Insurrec?
tion ! He is what he calls a "reformer." His let- 1
ter is well worth perusal, Inasmuch as he proves
that the Tnited States at first encouraged the re?
volt and then mercilessly connived for the de- ]
fitraction of those engaged in it. ^ls letter (or
??circular") ls mainly devoted te making good
These damning charges.
The circular of Senor Seda?o, lt ls Jcnown, was
sent lu large numbers to Havana, bv*tke Spanish
Minister, (it having seen printed bv his order in 1
New York.) The objects of the w"riter and the '
Minister are identical in Hie main. Both desire
the strangling of the revolution, and both vehe?
mently oppose the annexation of Cuba to the
United States. Upon the latter point the writor
of the circnlar expends most of his roroe.
In short, these developments show plalnlv that
the wretched bungling aud corruption of this ad?
ministration has deferred indefinitely thc acqui?
sition of Cuba by this coan try, if they have not
rendered such an event altogether impossible.

Interesting Interviews with the Chiefs
of the Chinese Companies I? San Fran
eise*-The Exportation of Chinese
Corpses-The First JOBS House Specu?
lation-Important Facts Concerning
oirVew Foreign Element.
The Chinese immigration into the United
States, what it is, and what it may become, is
one of the problems of our day. Thc impor?
tant changes, too, in regard to our trade with
China and Japan, which have recently taken
place, and the immense proportion which
that commerce may reasonably be expected to
attain, make the Chinese question one of de?
cided interest. Therefore, everything that
tends to inform us in regard to these strange
people will be read with interest. A San
Francisco correspondent of tho Now York Sun
lately made special visits to the six great
Chinese companies-institutions of a Masonic,
protective and charitable nature-and held in?
terviews with several of their leading men.
and records thc result of Iiis inquiries as fol?
THE CHINESE IS CALIFORNIA.
There can be no doubt that, so far as Cali?
fornia is concerned, t he presence of these Asi?
atics has been invaluable and indeed indis?
pensable. The whole population of the State
does not exceed 600,000, yet it now ranks as
one of thc great granaries of the world, and
San Francisco is thc ninth manufacturing city
of the United States. How much of this suc?
cess is due to the despised chinaman those
only know who are aware of the scarcity of
white labor at nearly all times, of the difflcnl
ty of Inducing uicn who have been engaged
in mininer pursuits-a large proportion of our
population-to labor in any other employment
whatever, and of the inflated notions which
inspire such men In regard to pay. But for
John Chinaman most ot our wheat and the
produce of our orchards and vineyards would
rot on th? ground; our manufactories woaid
have to shut up shop; our households would
be servantless. Were there any influx of
INTELLIGENT WUITE LAH0RER8
wc might probably prefer them to the pigtailed
Celestials, but as long as they come in as
slowly as they arc now doing we must have
the Chinaman. Those who fancy that they
will overrun the country may be reassured;
the supply.of Chinese labor is here rarely
much in excess of the demand; and in spite of
the superior facilities afforded lately by the
Pacific Mail Steamship Company, the number
which has arrived here this year has not much
exceeded 1000 per month-less than the aver?
age of earlier days. Before entering on thc
main subject of this article. I may bc permit?
ted to give a few statistics.
The number of Chinamen who have arrived
in California since Hie first settlement of thc
country is 138,580. Of these over 37,000 have
returned to China, and nearly 10,500 have
died. There ure about 41,000 Chinese in the
State now: the others having scattered through
Nevada, Montana, Idaho, Oregon and Utah, a
few dozen getting ns far as Chicago and New
York. That they are generally a steady and
law-abiding people is liest proved by the lact
that out of 41,000 in California, there are only
183 at this time in the Stutc prison and various
THE CHINESE QUARTER OF SAN FRANCISCO.
Although Chinamen are tobe found In every
part of Sun Francisco, the quarter where they
m<*et do oongtvirato inclitdoH Dupont, Jackson
and Pacific streets, and the neighborhood. .
They are great at congregating. They live
very much like bees, and space is of no con?
sequence. There is now an old three story
building on Jackson street on a lot G8Axl37?
feet, which contains over six hundred China?
men, who board, lodge, wash and smoke there,
it has ou occasions held a thousand. Parts of
the quarter are so thoroughly Chinese that a
visitor might fancy himself in Canton or
Shanchai. I believe that after the sea lions
at the Cliff House, strangers find more of in?
terest in these rather mean, dirty and strong?
ly-flavored streets thun in any other part of
the city. First,
TUE DOCTORS' SUOP8,
with their signs in Chinese and English, at?
tract attention. Many deluded San Francis?
cans resort to them, and one or two Chinese
physicians have been seriously run after for a
time. Woe to the man who takes their phy?
sic, for is it not composed of powdered bugs,
centipedes, lizards and so forth ? Even cobra
de capcllo is an ingredient in some of their
medicine. And then who ou earth could take
their pills-pills as big as small cannon balls ?
A little further wc come to a
CHEAP CHINESE RESTAURANT,
with its rickety little furnace, lumps ot pork
[ryitig and spluttering, bowls of rice, square
bags of sausage meat, fruit, fresh and dried
Ash, chop sticks of thc approved style, and a
general flavor of cook shop grown old smd
stale. There are more high-toned establish?
ments, where everything is served in good
shape, where you caii get delicacies like bird's
nest soup, shark's fins, geranium cake when
ia seasou, and wash t hem down with rose
ivinc and fine tea. The gambling hells, the
3pium dens, thc stores of every description,
ind the alleys, where the Chinese demi monde
ilsplay their charms through little windows
slit in the doors, arc all points of interest. The
loss houses and the Chinese theatre furnish
:he best proof of the cosmopolitan character of
san Frauds co.
Mr. Charles Walcott Brookes, thc Consul for
lapan, kindly gave me an introduction to Fung
Tang, a Chinese merchant ot the highest class,
(veil known and much respected here, and who
speaks otu- language like a native.
INTERVIEW WITH FUNO TANG.
I lound Mr. Fung Tang seated, as is com?
monly the case among the merchants, near
the door of his store, which is simply a hand?
some tea, grocery and Chinese dry goods
shop, calling for no very special remark. Af?
ter he had motioned mo to a seat by him, had
offered me a Manila cigar, and had learnt the
object of my visit, he politely expressed wil?
lingness to give me any information. My first
query was to this effect:
"What do you think of thc social position of
the Chinaman in California, and thc manner
in which he ls treated ?"
"I think," said Fung Tang, "that it is im?
proving all the time, but, as you know, we are
never safe from the attacks of brutal men; I
think the Chinese are better off under English
rule. In Melbourne a Chinaman can walk
three or four miles without being attacked, or
without having his tail cut off In Victoria,
Vancouver Island, too, some of our people
have bought property and are well treated."
Fung Tang alluded to our Sau Fraucisco
Chinese Protective Society, an institution
which has. till lately, employed a number ol'
special policemen, who patrol the streets, and
sec thal the Celestials are not persecuted. He
said that the society had done much good, thal
cases of violent usage of his people were gel
ting much rarer in the eily. That institution
has lately reduced the number ol* its police.
I then remarked to Mr. Tang that I belita c
ed he had once stated "We have rich mer
chants in China, who would like to invest capi?
tal in this country, but they are afraid to do
so, as they arc uot sure ol' "sufficient and im?
partial protection lu the courts of law." lie
acknowledge that it was so.
Fung Tang spoke with evident pride of the
good name and standing-cominerciallv-of
the Chinese merchants in this city. Said he
"We have no Chinese bankers h?re, but we
put mnch mosey in the leading banks, and are
readily trusted by them. We can borrow
mousy ou our own. name alone. Our own
people are pretty hauest. They usually settle
up all outstanding .tceounts at the Chinese
New Year." I farther spoke of a point I had
before heard mooted, the possibility of
A CHIVESE COMMISSION,
consisting of one American aud several China?
men, proceeding this winier to Washington to
represent their interests in the matter ul du?
ties on Chinese goods, Ac. This I learned will
hardly be attempted this season. Fung Tang
spoke very sensibly about the duties on Chi?
nese goods, uud fully understood thal the war
had heightened them. Uu only thought that
the duty ou opium should be reduced, as it led
to any quantity of
and utterly spoiled legit?male business,
opium seizures on Hie arrival ol* the C
steamers are usually very large. The Chi
resort to all kinds of dodges to smuggle
dried fish have been found to have
stuffed with it: egg shells have been foui
have been filled with it; it has been discov
in the Celestial's boots, in his hat , his doti
in boxes with luise bol I oms, and so ou. AI
time ago eight bales whose contents wer
scribed as medicinal "roots"' were discov
to bc nothing but opium colored, and m
with fibres in such a way as closely to re
ble '"roots." '.John" was trying to play i
on the customhouse.
SENDING DEAD CHINAMEN HOME FOn BUI
I also asked Fung-Tang "What is the
reason that the Chinese will not be bi
herc ?" "Well," said he, "our people an
customcd on the Sd ol'March and 9th of
tomber to visit thc tombs of their rclati
There are frequently twelve or fifteen gei
Hons, or many more, lying close logetlu
the same vaults." It is very much a rollg
duty to make this visit; incense and see
paper are burnt before thc tombs, and
mourners remain for hours together
bowed heads thinking of their ancestor
lost parents or friends, and ot the fate lo w
they and we must all come. But Fung 1
assured us that although every Chinaman
dies in California ls carried to his own lni
dead Chinamen being a recognized artic
freight, one of our exports-a large nun
have been buried in Melbourne. We talki1
many other matters; notably of thc S
tax on Chinese miners-$4 per head per rai
-which he considered greatly too high for
present time, as most of the more or
worked-out mines will now-o-days yield OE
bare existence, even to a Chinaman.
TUE CUrXESE COMPANIES.
Many absurd notions are afloat-even
this coast-in regard to the six great Chit
companies. Sonic have thought them U
political and secret societies, or legal tribu?
more dreaded by the Chinese than our o
or coolie agencies, and what not. Thc fut
that they are societies organized .exclusif
for thc benefit of the Chinese coming and si
Eing here. These associations have each tl
eadquarter8 or company's house; their c
stltulion, by-laws, anet officers. When a mi
ber is sick or in trouble, he ls cared for ?

bltrated without the necessity of going to 1

THE COMPANY BUILDING

THE YUNG M'O COMPANY.
A second, and almost equally Intelligc
China merchant, who on our first lutrodi
tion, politely handed -me his card printed
Americau style, with his name Wong V
"upon It, was my guide to the building ol* I
Yung Wo Company. Wong Wai speaks a
reads English; he has been studying it for 11
vears, and takes lessons from ti private El
Iish tutor every evening. We find the co.
pany in a moderate sized building on Saci
men to street. My first question to the head m
or president of the company, translated
Wong Wai, had reference to the organizatli
of the institution. The company reports ov
28,000 members among the Chinese since
organization in 1852. All Chinamen belongil
to thc society pay ten dollars entrance fe
with, as lu all the companies, other lees for ti
maintenance of the building, fund for ley
advice, and the like.
"Did you not," said I, "propose to sei
some deputation, American or otherwise,
represent yon at Washington this year ?"
"We did at first," said Wong Wai, after co
suiting thc president, a pretty stout old Chin
man who did not speak English, "bul the coi
panics did not agree, nor could they form ;
estimate of the probable expenses. We om
employed an American lawyer in thc city ar
he cost us several thousand dollars more thu
"What proportion of Chinamen ever g

find it very difficult to raise money enough,
said Wong Wai. "In thc mines now they ca
ouly make seventy-five couts to one dollar
day as a rule, but of this they will speu
nearly fifty cents a day, and (our dollars
month for thc tax. so that you sec it will lak
a long time for a poor Chinaman to raise a fey
hundred dollars. Laborers and men workln;
in a city are a little better off, but have greate
temptation to spend moory. It is nonsense t
say that they spend nothing herc; much c
their food is, of course, that of this country
much of their clothing also. When they mak
money they often spend it freely in America)
liquors aud other luxuries."
"How many Chluamcu arc (hero on th
coast at this time ?"
This ls an over-estimate. About 13S,000 havi
come here since 1819, bfft 37,000 have returned
and more than 10,000 have died.
THE COOLIE TALK.
Many people-opposed to the Chinese move
ment-talk of the Celestials herc as coolies
and thc notion has been re-echoed by th?
Eastern press. The fact is thal there nevei
were coolies In California, and all the Chillest
here are free to come and go as they jilease
Here thc persecution Chinamen receive is al
ways from outsiders: their employers almos
always treat them well.
Butas "coolie" isa tenn of reproach, Hu
enemies of the Chinese here-fast becoming ?
very small minority-invariably refer to then
by that title. Anti-coolie meetings have beer
called togethtv frequently lalely. At one ol
them it was proposed to ask the Legislature tc
impose a tax of $500 on every Chinaman enter?
ing the country, and a fine of a like amount
on every steamboat company bringiug thom
here, and on every person employing them.
Au export duty on dead Chinamen would bc
far more sensible.
In the annual report of thc San Francisco
Society lor the Protection of the Chinese, we
find the following statements:
THE HIERARCHICAL ORGANIZATIONS OF - TnE
Thc Chinese belong, without exception, to a
most hierarchical organization that ls subject
to the home government of China. This fact
should be more generally known than it is. for
the elfect ol* such a bond or institution ls to
place the Chinese here in America as fully un?
der the control of lite Imperial chinese powers
as if they were still in their native districts.
Owing to this hierarchical organization very
accurate statistical data can be obtained.
THE SIX COMPANIES
also, which are in California managed by trus?
tees, have a central government in China,,
which ls under the direct supervision of the
Imperial Chinese authorities. Thc representa?
tives ol'the six companies ara therefore to be
regarded as officers ol* thc Chinese Empire.
Their authority is derived from China. The
Chinese on thc Pacific coast form a SLitc with?
in st State, a colony governed in many re?
spects by China, und one that could nut possi?
bly exist were its members to form a commu?
nity ol' Isuid-owners. " So long as they are scat?
tered about, as at present, and subject, lo their
municipal authorities, these abnormal relations
.need nut bceoiuc conflicting.
EMPLOYMENT OK THB CHINESE.
More Chinese arc employed in the mines
than in tiny oilier branch of labor. In
California 0600 are miners. There arc 4500
servants, 4500 employed us \: rters and for
like purposes, and 25?0 in agricultural labor,
lu San Francisco there are 2500 Chinese cigar
makers, l?oo work on machines, too ut shoe?
making, 704 Chinese women earn their dally
bread by washing clothes, 1200 work in
slaughter-houses, tanneries and->kindred es?
tablishments, and 200deal in fish and vegeta?
bles. Few are employed at the regular trades.
There are only 84 carpenters and 33 tinsmiths.
There ure 1(J Chinese photographers and artists,
and 17 physicians. The report further remarks
on thc zea! and eagerness of the Chinese in
A large portion have mastered the English
language, and many, not, content with this,
have begun the study of French, Spanish and
German. A goodly humber can speak German
fluently. Tho report explodes the prevalent
notion'that the Chinese live on rice and vege:
tables. They can, and do, in case it is neces^
Bary; but when they find themselves able to
procure better food, they enjoy their improved
diet with as mucn gusto as au American would
alter such a change.
THE WAY TO THE WEST.
A Word for thc Asheville Route.
We are permitted to make the following ex?
tracts from a letter addressed to us by a citizen
or Henderson ville, N. C.:
Could I have any faith in the good intentions of
your Legislature, I would like tu suggest to them
the propriety of extending the railroad rrom
Greenville or Spartanburg to Asheville, N. C., six?
ty miles, which would UH up the remaininff fcap
rrom your city to Cincinnati, Ohio. The cars uow
run to lng Creek, Tennessee, forty-five miles from
Asheville, and thc remainder of the road is under
contract to Asheville, which ought, and perhaps
will be, finished the incoming year. Then If the
Greenville and Spartanburg roads were extended
twenty miles to thc foot of thc mountain, and
make a joint cil*ort for the remaining forty miles
to Asheville on a single road, thc work woufll be
completed, aud a train start at Charleston and go
by Greenville or Spartanburg through to the Ten?
nessee roads and on to Clneiuunii, from thirty to
fifty miles nearer than the KabunGap route would
be,"ir ever finished. Hut mari; thc prediction.
That Rabun Gap road will not bc finished in five
years, and I doubt If it can be done lu fifty. I
know agood portion of the country lt passes over,
and am not mistaken when I siy it ts too big a
job ror the times. Had half thc- rooney already
expended on that work been judiciously expend?
ed on thc Asheville and French Broad route, thc
cars would have been running to Cincinnati be?
fore the war. And less than half the money ap?
propriated by the late Legislature of South Caro?
lina to the Ulue Ridge Road would complete the
entire road by Asheville, on the French Broad
route, with the connection both to Greenville and
Spartanburg, In less than two years iroin to-day.
Rut none so blind as those wtio refuse to sec.
Why the City or Charleston will tax her people to
poverty's brink ror money to buJd the Blue Ridge
Railroad, to the exclusion ol thc French Broad
rontc, Is hard ror an up country man to under?
stand. To say nothing or the expense, which
wonld bc at least lour dollars to one, the State of
Georgia would of course tap the Oluc Ridge Road
within her own borders, and long before the road
was completed would be ready to ia vite the North?
ern trade and travel ts her own seashore at the
expense of Charleston, after she (Charleston) had
built the road, lt is the shortest sight I have ever
known your sharp people to take in a business
transaction or Improvement.
The restriction in gauge has been removed by
thc Legislature of South Carolina from thc char?
ter or thc Greenville and French Broad Railroad,
which ls about all that can ever be hoped for from
the South Carolina Legislature, as it ls not to thc
Interest of South Carolina to extend the road
from Asheville south. But will Sonth Carolina
and the City or Charleston hide their eyes from
so favorable an opportunity or splicing In
the last link in thc grand chain from
Charleston to Cincinnati, which can now be
so easily welded In, by taking hold of the present
opportunity r There is not a single tunnel re?
quired on thc route, that I know of, and poor as
our people arc, I have no Idea but they eould and
would subscribe land and money enough to build
the road rrom the State line to Asheville. South
Carolina has ability to do the balunce, and do it
at once, without materially Interfering wiih the
Blue Ridge enterprise. If your people will stop
to think, they can but see thc advantage that ls
now otTercd lu filling up this last gap in thjt great
linc or railway so ably advocated by the lamented
Hay ne, of your State, who would, had bc lived a
few years longer, had that road completed long
since. He, above all other men ol the South,
seemei to comprehend and appreciate thc value
of that enterprise. Have you no master spirits
among you now who can and will investigate this
subject and present lt to your people according to
its truemerlts? lt needs hut a single thought to
see Its practicability and necessity, more so to
your State anti city than any others, except a sin?
gle county through which lt passes In North Car?
olina, and that may be remedied someday by thc
extension of one or the North Carolina roads to
this section. But now ls thc time Tor South Caro?
lina to move in the matter, tr she desires to avail
herself of an advantage seldom offered to any
people. Thc North Carolina Railroad will hang
fire a long time at thc Swananoa tunnel, which 1
fear will prove a stumphonse mountain affair, lt
will take them years to get through, If they ever
do. In the meantime South Carolina could fill
up this gap to Asheville, u ml have all the trade and
travel ror years, ir not rorcver, rrom the North?
west. Then lt the Rabun Gap and North Carolina
Road ls ever finished, they will hardly ever bc
able to compete successfully with the French
Broad route. It being more central and direct,
ns well as a better and nearer route to the Atlan?
tic, must always have the preference and be more
easily kept np. and be a better paying road to thc
stockholders, and pour all Its wealth In the lap of
South Carolina; whilst the Rabun Gap would
divide her patronage with Georgia.

ination ir yon think as I do on thc subject, and
have any hope that your Immortal Legislature
'.an bc reasoned with on the subject, or that thc
capitalists ol your city and State cnn be Induced
to move In thc matter, call their attention to it.
Surely il they will investigate the matter, and de?
sire the prosperity or your city and state, they?
will avail themselves or thc advantages now of
fcred them. Some succeeding Legislature of
North Carolina may better understand thc inter?
ests of Eastern North Carolina and repeat the
amended charter of the Greenville and Frenen
Broad Railroad, or place some other obstruction
or restriction that would prevent its being so ad?
vantageous to South Carolina as the present char?
ter as now amended.
A HORRIBLE CASE.
Death of the "Welsh Fasting Girl."
Thc London papers announce the tragical
end of a strange Imposture.
More than two years ago a girl of eleven
years, named Sarah Jacobs, the daughter of a
sinall farmer In an obscure village or Wales,
took to her bed, after vomiting blood, and
never alterwards left lt, except when she was
lined out. It was soon announced that she
took neither food nor drink, and thousands
came to see what was popularly regarded as
little short of a miracle. Thc child ,.was exhi?
bited lying in ber bed dressed us a bride, and
with a wreath of Howers around her head.
The parents derived quito a little revenue from
?the offerings of sympathetic visitors. They
declared that she took no sustenance what?
ever. Once a fortnight her lips were moisten?
ed with water.
Several investigations were made at various
times by more or less skilful observers, and a
watch was set upon the room, but nothing sus?
picious was discovered. It seems, however,
that no examination wai made of thc bed, un?
til a short time ago four experienced nurses
were sent down from Guy's Hospital to silt the
case, in concert with a locnl committee and
several men. The room and bed were mi?
nutely searched, and on the 9th of December
the nurses began their watch. No lood was
discovered, and It was made morally Impossi?
ble that any should bc secretly Introduced. So
(ar thc investigation may be called a c?mplete
success; but after some days the girl begun to
show symptoms of starvation. Tho parents
were urged to give ber food, but refused. On
Hie Hui she died, delirious. The cruelty ol'
the parents, who, if the story be correctly told,
subjected their child for two long years to the
torture of this living death, and dually caused
her deal h in Hie agonies of starvation,* is Justly
the subject of severe reprobation. But is
uothing to be said of the Guy's Hospital author?
ities and the "local committee" who permitted
the cruel test to ba carried out to the dreadful
A FREE BANKING SYSTEM.
A number of bills are being prepared by
different Congressmen, and one also by thc
Secretary of the Treasury, to provide for thc
institution of free banking. Thc opinion of a
leading banker and broker In New York City
having been solicited, he writes as follow:
No oue can object to a free banking law,
provided the proper restrictions be placed
upon thc banks in redeeming their issue. ]f a
law should be passed similar to the present
National Banking act, it is wild, wicked infla?
tion, as the government does not obtain any
advantage from such an increase of the cur?
rency under such a condition of things. It
woidd be belier that the government would
issue more legal-tenders, rather than allow in?
dividuals or corporations to reap the bene?
fits of that which the government, could readily
obtain itself. If, however, the idea is to make
a central redeeming point in New York city
under government supervision, then the laws
ol' trade (demand and supply) would gov
ern. When money was wanted to move the
crops, the banks would Issue currency; when
the currency would be returned to the finan?
cial centres, the banks would have to redeem.
Without tills check, to pass such a law would
J>o madness. If asked what tho effect of such
a law would be, I would say that lt ls gradual
contraction andjan appreciation of the green?
back to gold. It will readily be perceived that
if thc new banks were obliged (as they should
be) to relain twenty-five per cent, of their cir?
culation on hand in legal tenders, this, of
course,*would tie up so much moro legal ten?
ders and make them scarce. The free banking
law of the State of New York is the best guide
for any new legislation on the subject.

-A good result has come out of the continual
strikes among thc London cabmen. They are to

What is the rational mode or procedure In cases or
general debility and nervous prostration? Does
not reason tell us that Judicious stimulation ls re?
quired ? To resort to violent purgation lu such a
case is os absurd as it would be to bleed a starv?
ing man. Yet lt is done every day, Yes, this
stupid and uuphilosophical practice is continued
in tho teeth or the CHEAT PACT that physical weak?
ness, with all thc nervous disturbances that ac?
company lt, ls more certainly and rapidly relieved
by HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS than by
any other medicine at present known. It ls true
that general debility is often attended with tor?
pidity opirrcgularliy of thc bowels, and that this
symptom must not be overlooked. But while the
discharge or thc waste matter of the system ls
expedited or regulated, Its VIGOR MUST BE RBJ
ORl'lTED. Thc Bitters do both. They combine
aperient and anti-bilious properties, with extraor?
dinary tonic power. Even while removing ob?
structions from the bowels, they tone aud invigo?
rate those organs. ?Through th? stomach, upon
winch the great vegetable speclUc acts directly, lt
gives a healthy and permanent impetus to every
?nieebled function*. Digestion is racilitated, the
faltering circulation regulated, the blood rein?
forced with a new accession of thc alimentary
principle, Ute nerves braced, and all the dormant
powers or the system roused Into healthy action;
