Van Buren expects to sail for Europe on the
first proximo, to be absent from three to
four months. After doing a little shooting
with some of his old friends in Scotland, it
is understood to be his intention to pay Hy
ing visits to St. Petersburg!! and Constanti
nople. When he returns we shall probably
know whether the Czar is sound upon the j
Nebraska bill and whether the Sultan means!
to support t lie autninisiraiion candidates iorj

We trust Mr. Van Linen's departure will !
have a favorable effect upon the Van Buren-1

Chinese Emigration to California. r
The Alta California has an article on Chines
emigration to California which shows that
our western shores are likely to be thronged
with the satelites of the brother of the situ.
Such is represented to be the demand forem
igrant ships that all the the vessels that have
been condemned as itnseaworthv arc bought
up at enormous prices und temporarily fitted
for passenger uses. Thousands and thousand.-
are arriving contmuallv, ami tin ci v is still
they come. As a measure of relief, 'the. Ca
ilbrnians are about to petition to Congress
for a per capita tax to he levied on all Chinese
immigrants before they are allowed to bud.
We have no doubt that mnnv ot ihese old
rot ten vessels will be enfiins to the many
hundreds which are embarking in them.

the. golden .treasure of California, the dis-
tresses of the neonle r.f th;it nl.l rmniiv nr.
