bave taken plaoo on this continent as
bave no parallel in tho history of the
world. The same montai and physical
endowments which secured such grand
results, promised to continuo to elevate
tho nation ia ajl that is great, until it
roached tho highest possible degree of
exaltation of which society, in tho pre?
sent oondition of mankiud, is capable.
Bab just at tho epoch when the nation
bas reached the position from which the
grand future roic'ht-. bo anticipated aa a
certainty, a new evil is presented to the
young republic, which has vexed its
councils and threatens to impair tho
forces which have so rapidly carried it
forward to distiuctiou among the na?
tions. An inferior typo of men, who
bad been held as Blaves, were freed and
immediately elevated to an equality of
political rights with tho white raco, that
highest order of men on the earth. Thus
the door was opened to all inferior races;
and onr position on tho globe, with tho
facilities of transportation now a?brded,
makes us liable to tho incursiou of vast
numbers of tho Asiatic peoplo, who are
also inferior to tho meu who settled this
country and have ruled it with such un?
exampled thrift and growth of power.
They cannot bo excluded from political
equality while it is accorded to tho ne?
gro; for in many respects thoy aro his
superior. They 'may como ia more ra?
pidly than it is possible to bring in the
Caucasian types from Europe, ami may
settle the vost plains of the West and
become a great power ia the nation.
Thus wo have the great evil of tho
nation presented to us in a manner so
threatening as to occasion uneasiness in
the mind of every reflecting man.
The "homogenity of nations" is tho
grand principle of the modern political
economists. Incompatible types and
families of men cannot live happily under
tho same Government or in the same
country? After 400 years tho Moors were
driven ont of Spain. The Greeks and
Turks can never harmonize, though
centuries have hold them in political
association. The Irish will never be
content with Eugish rule. And national
antipathies and incompatibilities tho
world over aro undying and immortal.
Bat the worst condition of society in
this world is that composed of superior
and inferior types and different colors of
men, and where the numbers of the in?
ferior inhabitants aro so great as to make
a serious impression upon the public
character aud the public policy. Pro?
fligacy and vioe take the place of in?
dustry and virtue. Disorder and out?
lawry supplant order and security. Cor?
ruption gets into every department of
the Government. The country is torn
by the rivalries of ambitious men, who
take tho field with armed retainers to
seize by force what they cannot obtain
by law. The roads are neglected; the
high-ways are beset with bandits; agri?
culture languishes, aud there is no ad?
vancement in art, no improvement in
industry. Indeed, the nation becomes a
prey to an innumerable aud vicious
brood of evils of hybridized humanity,
and the obstructive aud ruinous conse?
quences of a mingling of incongruous
types of men ns equals in tho body
It is impossible that wc can shut our
eyes to tho cousequeuces of having as
political equals families of men living
in tho bosom of this country who must
ever remain separated from our people,
and whose characters, tastes, nnd aifini
ties are so distinct from ours as to ren?
der community of feeliug aud sympathy'
impossible. It threatens us politically,
BOOially and morally.
Take the Chinese. They aro accus-'
tomed to lives that are GO different from
ours that their employment amongst us
must produce thc most disturbing influ?
ences. They live so poorly and work so
cheaply, that their competition would be
ruinous to our own laboring classes. We
cannot expect a new mode of lifo to bo
adopted by the white laborer any more
than by other classes of society, and if
those other classes subject him to the
necessity of such a chunge of habits as
is next to impossible, it will produce dis?
order and bloodshed. (This is now
threatened in California.) A writer in a
Western journal styles tho introduction
of Chinese, as "a conspiracy agaiust the
freo, manly, honest, and remunerative
labor of American citizens, for tho tur?
pitude of which the language has no
But the first step has been takon which
opens the door wide. We cannot admit
one* inferior race and keep ont another.
And wo aro threatened with tho degra?
dation of labor, tho nursery of a nation's
power and greatness; with thc degrada?
tion of tho Government in all its depart?
ments; with the depreciation of the public
character and thc extreme depravity of
the public morals.
lu the consideration of this great na?
tional evil, party is nothing. It is only
ephemeral, whilo tho evil, unchecked,
must he enduring, and must inevitably
seriously obstruct the progress of this
nation and defeat its attainment of that
high destiny which it would, under the
exclusivo rule of tho truo Caucasian, un?

CHOLERA:-Tho following letter io from
Mr. Woodward, of St. Louis, to J. N. Harris,
Esq., of New London. Conn. Mr. W. ia a gen?
tleman of high rcapectability, and during the
prevalence of tho cholera in St. Louis,
watched the rcault of tho application of the
Tain Killer for thia disease, and bia testimony
can be relied upon with thc utmost confidence:
DE.UI Sin: You recollcot when I Baw you in

eanguino expectations that Davis' TAIN
KILLER would have a tremendous sale in tho
Weat thia Bcaaou, and my anticipations have
been more than realized, and the testimony
of tbouaanda who havo naod it has been that
thev would not bo willing to go to bed at night
without it in the house.
On tho appearance of the cholera in this
city, auch waa tho confidence in thc Pain
Killer aa a remedy, that many who purchased
it remarked to me that thoy had no fears or
dread of tho cholera, aa long as they bad the
Pain Killer by them, and hundreds took it
daily aa a preventative, for no person can
have a derangement of tho bowels or diar
rhcea, if they uso thia medicine. Thia was
tho aocurity" and confidence of hundreds
j Acquainted with it, and when their friends
were attacked with the Cholera, they would
administer tho remedy in large quantities,
and in every case when it nae been taken in
any of thc first atagea of thia disease, it has
I consider it an infallible remedy. I havo
not heard of any individual in any family who
used thu Pain Killer when attacked, but
Tho clerk informed nie that ho administer
cd it to persons when cold or in the crames,
and it gave immediate relief, but etill it
should bo given quickly, for when tho dia
cbnrgc of "rice water" has begun, thc hope
of life has fled. Should this disease make its
appearance among von, as in all probability it
will, he not alarmed; you and all othj-rs there
have tho remedy, and 1 am confident if tho
Pain Killer ia used, not a sincle death by cho?
lera will occur in vom- cit v. Respect fully
yours, A. T. WOODWARD.
