YORKTOWN, VA., February 21?
When tho war-dogs of tho L'ntted States

opportunity of galnlng a great deal of In

outrank by far any other natlonality,
creed or color. with a suavlty of manner
pccullarly their own. Of strict Integrl

ideal Bervants. A^few Aniorlcan negroes
ond a few Chlnamen are tho only oppo?
sltion theao "a3ons of tho Mlkooo" Tiavo

tlon ln thelr favor la the fact that they
are olieapcr, will work for less, than
any other menlal. Theso llttle follows
come honestly by Lhe appellatlon of "l"an
kecs ot tho Oriont," for they aro nearer
tho Amerlcan in etraraeter than any of
tho Astatic natlanollties. Contrary to tho
ordlnary impresslon. theao llttle follows
aro not of the lower grado of Japaneso
life, but come rather frdm tho very flrst
families of thelr nattve land. ln dlrect
opposltion to our vlew of thelr statlon in

corvo a gentleman, and this; moro than
unythlog else, ls the reason asslgned by

The momber from Alexandria was clear
