Important from Japan—Difficulty between
the American Consul-General
and the Council State—Refusal of
the Goverment to Send Commissioners
to Washington.
We And in the Rotterdam Cbiircmf, of July
16, the following letter from Japan, containing
Important information for the Amerioan reader.
It will be seen that in eonsequenoe of a mis
understanding with Consul-General Harris, the
J apanose Government now refuses to tend Com.
missioners to Washington to exchange the rati
fication of its treaty with the United Btatea.
The letter, we learn from a reliable souroe, is
authentio, and ita facts sot to be disputed.
[Translated for the New York Times from the Rotterdam
Courant.]
Diciua, (Naoasaki), Maroh 25, 1850, A few
days ago, I rsceived intelligence from Yedo
that four Amerioan merchantmen had arrived
at Kanagawa, near that oapital, for the pur
pose of trade, although that port, aooordlng to
the treaty, is not to be opened before the 4th
of July of this year.
Mr. Towntend Harris, the America! Conaul
Oeneral at Simoda, on rcoeipt of this informa
tion, left immediately for Yedo, with two
American steamers, then on a visit to Simoda,
and instead of ordering thoBe mtrchant vessels
to leave that port, as was his duty, he applied
to the Council of State for permission to allow
those merchant ships to trade in anticipation
of the treaty even strongly insisting upon
compliance after the request had boen refused
by the Counoil of State. The Counoil, however,
persisted in its refusal, and desired Mr. Har
ris to immediately order those merohant shipa
away.
The Japanese Government felt much dis
pleased with this aot of the Consul-General;
the more so, as he had promised that ae Ameri
oan ship, not even a man-of-war, should visit
the Bay of Yedo before the treaty goes into
effeot. In eonsequenoe of thia, the Japanese
Government bat changed its mind in regard to
sending Commissioners to Washington to ex
change the ratifications of the treaty.
Mons. Delave Again Crosses Genesee
River on a Tight-Rope—Extraordinary
Feats.
Tuesday last was a gala-day at Rochester,
N. Y. U is estimated that twenty thousand
persons assembled to see Mods. Delave cross
the Geneseo River on a tight-rope. The rope
was of common Alan ilia, five inches in cir
cumference, aud sevon hundred feet long.
Of the performance, the Buffalo Courier gays:
At fifteen minutes past four he stepped on
the rope for the grand crossing. He walked
quite slowly and carefully, stopping, appa
rently, for the swaying of the cable, which
was considerable. The sun shone brightly
in his face as ho walked from Falls' Field to
the other bank. On reaching the middle of
the rope hn secured his pole, and made fast
a rope to his feet, and hung with his head
and body down, then by one foot made fast.
Ue then hung by his bands, laid down for
ward on the rope, extending his arms on the
pole. After lying on his back with his pole
on his breast, he proceeded to accomplish the
first crossing. On arriving nearly ovor the
Falls he swayed considerably, perhaps caused
by the force of the wind ana the insufficiency
of the guvs. He performed the trip in
eleven and a half minutes. After this he
rode a horse among the spectators gathered
below the Falls and took up a collection. He
started on biB return trip from the saw-mill
at three-quarters past four, and proceeded
rapidly down till over the middle of the
river, where he sat astride of the rope, stood
on hie head twice, placed his pole across the
guy ropes and stood on the pole, laid down
on his back and stood on one foot. Ho then
walked slowly to the place of starting, land
ing at eight minutes to five, making the trip
bock in seven minutes. The spectators ea
gerly seized him on landing, and loudly
cheered him.. He appeared considerably
fatigued, as evidenced by tho perspiration on
his face. "
Labels Not the Subject of Copyright.
The Commissioner of Patents, in a circular
just issued, calls attention to the difference be
tween engravings and labels as matter of copy
right. Applications for copyright of labels are
frequently made; the applicant thus endeavor
ing to secure for a fee of fifty centa a monopoly
for twenty -eight yeara of a deaign,'a patent for
which would cost fifteen dollars, and give ex
elusive right for but seven yeara. The com
missioner therefore decides that In the case of
an engraved or printed design, when issued as
an object of art, having a value in itself, and
intended for sale aa such, it properly cornea
within the provisions of the oopyright law;
but when, however artistically executed, it is
not produced for aale as a work of art, but ia
designed to be affixed in the manner of a label
to a manulaetured article, it then plainly falls
under the aot relating to patents for designs,
and consequently oannot be protected by copyright.
The Pulpit and the Masses.
The New York Christian htUgtnctr asks if
the pulpit thia day reachea the masues of the
people, and fears it does not. We quote :
Upon luxurious couohes, surrounded by
gliding and oarvery, on a pleasant Sunday,
when not too hot or cold, too wot or dry, a
gaily dressed multitude listen sleepily, first to
soft music behind, and then to the musioal
voiee before them, and when the hour and a
half is spent the rnstling silk moves out to the
sound of tbe organ, and the pulpit remains a
eold unmeaning pieoo of mummery. Outside,
tho multitndo rush by, unheeding and unheeded.
There la no pulpit for them. Vice and misery,
in ten thousand forms, are rioting, and stifling,
and destroying; cruelty and oppression are
rampant amid our ohurches, and the groans
of the victims mingle with the churoh bells.
Does the pulpit reach the masses? That is
something for us to answer as Christians. For if
It does not, the masses will reach and overturn
the pulpit.
IurHQVBUiHT is Drntistbt. Something of
Interest to dentists is communicated by Doctor
Slayton, to the Dental Acta teller. He takes
a act of teeth of Bilver, oopper or brass, and
after first carefully removing all grease, rubs
one aide with mercary until it has assumed the
mirror appearance, and then with a pair of
tweezers lays on the gold or other foil out in
small strips; he then carefully presses It into
tbe teeth, rubbing it well in,and treats another
aide the same way, and eo on. He ean lay aa
many thiokneases of foil as may be desirable,
only taking eare that one ia firmly fixed before
tbe other it begun. By placing the whole in
aamall oven, and applying a spirit lamp, the
mercury Is driven off, and burnishing with a
blood-stone or steol burnisher, at first not lean
log very bard, a rich gold plating is obtained,
which will not even melt off, and can only be
removed by a file.

Blondin Crosses the Niagara River with
a Cook-stove, and Cooks an Omelet.
Blondin, on Wednesday crossed the Niagara
River on. bis rope, personating a slave, with
manaeloa, and aubiequently with a cook-stove,
with which, over the middle of the river, he
cooked an omelet, whloh he lowered to the
steamer Staid of the Mitt. The Buffalo Expreu,
after stating that he first orossed is manaolea,
a collar about his nook, a chain pendant to his
arms, and two others from his wrists to his an
kles, then states that be next performed moat
of the feats pervlously exhibited standing
upon hia head, hanging beneath the tops,
swinging hia body under it, backward, sus
tained by the arms with the elbows bent, io.
The Erprcti next describes the stove feat, aa
follows:
After a atay of fifteen or twenty minutes upon
the Canadian shore, he started baok with a
oook-stovo twung upon his back, the oulinary
appurtenances thereto consisting of saucepans,
ladle, sundry dishes and a pair of bellows, se
curely fastened upon the stove. The stove was
a goodly sised, properly-fashioned cooking
stove, made of Ruaaia sheet-iron, and boasting
of a smoke-pipe about two feet in bight. Ar
rived at the center of the rope, Blondin seoured
hia pole and prooeeded with nonohalanoe to
make preparations for "camping" Unsliog
ing hia stove he placed It upon the rope before
him, sat down, and with some pitohy, combus
tible material built afire, exciting it with tbe
bellows, and soon raising a smoke, whioh
proved the genuineness of the preparations for
cooking. When s proper degree of heat had
been attained he produced hia eggs, broke them
into hit diah, and threw the shells into the
river. The omelet was propared with all the
skill of a chef dt ciHwie, and when it was com
plete he lowered il to tbe deck of the Maid of
the Mitt, where, we doubt not, it waa divided
into the smallest possible shares, and eagerly
treasured by the passengers. Gathering up bis
"hotel," Blondia readjusted it upon bis baok,
and quickly landed himself and it upon the
Amoncan shore, amid the loud obeera of the
throng.

Terrible Explosion of Gunpowder.
AtBallinooIig, Ireland, on Saturday, August
6, a number of powder-mills exploded while
workmen were removiug casks of powder into
a canal boat. Five men were blown to
pieces. Three of the bodies, when dis
covered, are deaoribed as black massea of flesh
and bone, only distinguishable by fragments of
dress whioh bung by them. Of tbe bodies of
the other two not a limb remained, but their
relations might be seen wandering over tbe
adjaoent fields, pioking up black fragments of
flesh and bona, whioh no doubt formed a part
of their living bodios not two hours before.
As to the dusting-house or reEning-rooni, at
whloh the catastrophe ocourred, not as much
as a stone remains, even from the foundation;
for the very ground on whioh it stood has been
blown up and rooted away as if a mine had
exploded beneath.
CilE83 Tovrkasiext. Galignani'a Mettexycr

It may be remembered that in March last,
whon Mr. Morphy, tbe celebrated American
chess-player, was in Paris, the principal chess
araateuis had decided on holding a kind of
chess tournament, divided into five categories
of players, the conquerors in whioh should af
terward measure their strength with Mr.
Morpby. The audden departure of that gen
tleman for the United States prevented tbe
full scoompliihment of the programme, but
the idea of the tournament waa carriod out,
