Wednesday Morning, Joly 14,1869.
SAMBO, JOHN CHINAMAN, AND THE MOR?
MONS.-The Kew York Herald quo les
from the Salt Lake Telegraph-Mormon
organ-to show that those people have
no objection whatever to the introduc?
tion of Chinese population into any part
of the United States. That journal says
as to the Johnny's devotions, the secta?
rians should bs really glad of his Baying
his prayers to anything as long os they
were the prayers of his heart, and that if
hie idols ore mean looking things, some
inventive Yankee will assist him in fur?
thering his idea of architecture. It in?
vites him. to come, if his inclination
prompts him, and says if he is treated os
his 'station only demands, he will not
want to get into Congress, ask to be ap?
pointed Minister to Hayti, or postmaster
at Macon, Ga., without any bondsman,
or commit outrages upon defenceless fe?
males. The Herald says these are dagger
thrusts at Sambo, and show how much
the Mormons esteem him. It says:
"The fact is, Sambo and Dinah havo
been getting along a little too fast in this
country, within a very few years past, to
suit the interests of any class of people.
In the end, the blacks, as laborers, will
find themselves crushed between the up
Ser and nether mill-stones-tho Irish,
berman, and other Europeans on one
hand,- und tho Chinese and other Asiatic
immigrante on the other. Even the once
despised Mormons do not come to tho
rescue of the negro, now clothed in all
the glory a state of freedom can confer

MB. EDITOB: I Mk the use of your
columna to make a statement relative to
my repent connection with the post office
of thki city, SUB one of the employees.
As its affairs hnve been so publicly dis?
cussed since the appointment of the pre?
sent incumbent, it is duo to myself and
friends that I should define my position
there. A few days previous to my enter?
ing upon my duties, Mr. Wilder called
on me and tendered me the position of
his obiof clerk, stating that he wished
me to take charge of the books, the
"money order business" and the "regis?
tered letter' department; also stating
that he had engaged his other assistants.
As this was the first intimation he had
given me of his intention to proffer me
employment, J was not prepared to give
him on answer at the time, but in a day
or two afterwards signified my accept?
ance of the situation and entered upon
its duties on 1st Juno. Finding the ne?
cessity very great for my services at dif?
ferent times in other departments than
my own, I rendered them cheerfully and
believe they were available and endea?
vored in all respects to perform my la?
bors promptly and faithfully in the inte?
rest of the postmaster nul courteously
and obligingly towards all whom I served.
The labors, trials and embarrassments of
tho office were inorensed towards the
middle of tho month by tho sickness of
one of the assistants, and hence heavier
duties devolved on Lue others; but thoy
wore then performed with less trouble
and annoyance than previously, as all
had become more familiar with their re?
spective duties in the office. That mis?
takes were made in the delivery of letters
and papers at first, as well ns in other
respects, was unavoidable; tho same mis?
takes, however, might have happened
and really, to some extent, have occurred
at the hands of the most experienced in
that department of the Government.
Bot after tho month of Jane had passed
and all were prepared to continue their
duties with less confusion and embarrass?
ment than at first, and after the "reports"
and "returns" for the quarter ending
30th June, had all been made and ren?
dered to the department at Washington,
and wc had more time to systematize the
operations of the office for thc quarter
upon which we had entered, I was sur?
prised on the morning of the 3d of July,
by the announcement of the postmaster,
that ho had, on the night previous, after
he had parted from me, made another
arrangement for the conduct of the office,
stating that it roos for no fault with me, but
ho folt compelled to net as he had ; adding,
that the anxiety of mind ho suffered was
too Rreat for him to bear, and ho hoped
that ho would be relieved by having tboso
who bad for a long time been familiar
with the office in their old places. The
announcement, relieving mo, was as sud
den and unexpected as the offer made to
me. In tho course of the same day, I
delivered my books, and so forth, into
tho hands of my successor, who received
thom, saying, after examination, that
they were correct. The postmaster also
expressed himself entirely satisfied with
the manner in which I had discharged
my duties. As to the cause of my super
cession and the re-instatement of Mr.
Leaphart, absolutely none was assigned,
for the simple reason, that none could
be, so far as my foll efficiency and de?
portment were to be regarded. If cun?
ning, self-seeking, artful approaches or
mischievous inuendoes have deceived tho
postmaster and advanced the temporary
convenience of my successor, I am per?
fectly willing that the reward and the
honor shall be enjoyed by him. In regard
to the incumbent, I will say that I believe
he is more than anxious to give satisfac?
tion to the public, and that his assistants
in tho office with me, so far as I could
judge, performed their duties faithfully.
I would not have permitted so long a
time to elapse before making this state?
ment, but that I had reason to expect,
from day to day, that it would be made
by thc postmaster himself.

REsPONSinnirry OF SUBETTES.-In the
United States Gonrt there were tried yes?
terday, a number of cases which involve
tho question of the responsibility of
sureties on official bonds. As the ques?
tion is one of a public interest, we give
tho facts. After the close of the war, G.
L. Keach was appointed postmaster at
Aiken, S. C., and Messrs. Wm. Gregg
and Nathaniel O. Tilton were sureties on
his official bond. In December, 186G,
tho sureties notified tho Government that
the postmaster was misapplying tho
funds, aud that thoy would no longer bo
responsible for his official good conduct.
Keach was, however, not removed until
soruo time after, when it was discovered
that ho was in default to the amount of
8670. Action was brought by the Go?
vernment against him and against his
sureties. Under thechargo of tho Judge,
tho jury returned a verdiot against tho
sureties for $200, with interest from tho
3l8t of December, 1866, upon the ground
that the notification of tho defendants
and the faot that the Government took
no notice of it at the time, released tho
sureties from responsibility after that
time. The District Attorney gave notioo
of an appeal.-Charleston Courier.
An English paper says it is not at ali
an uncommon thing for ladies traveling
in first class railway carriages to cut
down and carry away the silk curtains of
the windows, for the parp?se of making
aprons of them. So general did the
practice become on one line, that all new
curtains were made of material that was
not worth stealing.
A company of Chinese athlete? asto?
nished the people of San Francisco, re?
cently, with sn exhibition of their agili?
ty. About nf teen of them appeared on
tho stage amid the din and clangor of
gongs and kettle-drums. They first
fought a sham battle with swords,
cleavers, pole-axes, lancee and short
knives. The fencing was vet/ rapid, ana
each fighter wes an expert Bt?lt^tfM
warrior stood against a hook 'IJe/'O^k
armed his antagonists aa fast as they
came: hurled them about the stage; stab?
bed them, hewed them with broad axes,
hacked them with swords, batted-them
with his head, kicked them in the .breast
with both feet at once, and yet found
time to execute hand-springs and vault?
ing somers aal ts among thom aa he
fonght. At last he vanquished. All his
foes and the half-naked rascals took to
flight. He pursued. Some rough tables
were ranged along the front of the stage
to represent hedges, rooks, logs and
banks, which must obstruct pursued and
parsaer alike. The runners vaulted the
tables, turning lofty summersaults over
each, and landing indifferently on their
feet, hands, heads and backs, as the caso
might be, and that, too, on a hard stage,
covered only with a few strips of mat?
ting. The victorious fighter, a splendid
acrobat, was always after them. Several
times one of his foes would turn and
face him, when he would bound high in
the air, and plunging down, plant both
feet in the breast, of his adversary with
such foroe as to send him head-long
across the stage. Tho Alta says that if
ever a troupe of these sturdy and well
trained athletes were put to a fair test
of physical activity und strength, they
could handle a regiment of the lazy,
lank-limbed, whiskey-sodden ruffians and
cowards who make a pasttimo of ston?
ing, beating and throwing about China?
men in tho public streets of that city.
The next sensation in Boston is to be

Cooke and Stanton, upon "how sweet

It is said that the proprietors of the
celebrated PLANTATION BITTERS rent no
less than nine pews from the different
denominations in New York city for all
those of their employees who will occupy
them regularly, freo of charge. This is
certainly praiseworthy, and it is to be
hoped that others who employ a large
number of peoplo will follow tho exam?
ple. The above fact, accompanied with
tho belief that a firm who would look =<>
closely after tho morals and welfare of
their exployees, would not undertake to
impose upon tho public, has induced us
to give the PLANTATION BITTERS a trial,
and having found them to be all that is
represented, we cordiully recommend
them as a tonic of rare merit.

There is, says tho New York Time?, so
much dissatisfaction iu New Zealand
with the oonduot of the English Govern?
ment toward the colony regarding the
war with the aboriginees, that there are
actual threats among the colonists of n
i severance from British authority. Not
' nly have the New Zealand newspapers
suggested the idea of independence, but
prominent public men are turning their
thoughts in the same direction. The
London Spectator regards the matter as
having already taken a serious shape,
and speaks of the probability of the
harsh policy of Lord Granville goading
the colony into secession. Tho Spectator
also expects that the "demand of New
Zealand for independence xviii be fol?
lowed byan application for a protectorate
to some other power-say the United
States of America or Prussia."
