G. A. McCARTHEY.
Tho steamer Arabic, which arrived
from China on Friday night, brought to
this city Commodore Shuteldt and his
daughter on their return homo. A reporter
called on him yesterday at tho
Fa1 ace Hotel. Commodore Shufeldt
stands six feet, weighs 200 pounds, and
although nearly sixty yeans of age is as
straight as an arrow and walks with
youthful energy. His hair and beard
are liberally streiked with gray, hi3
forehead high and broad, and his complexion
browned wiin the sunshine of
the Eastern sca3.
11 Of course you know,11 began the
Commodore, "that Corea i a country
that has long been inaccessible to the
world. I believe I ato the first white
man who has ever trod the soil of the
interior, and, therefore, perhaps I am a
curiosity. So far as 1 saw them, the
people of Corea are greatly attached to
their country, have no disposition to
emigrate which accounts for their
heretofore but are possessed
of a lively curiosity. On landing
in Corea to meet the two Ministers appointed
by the King to negotiate this
treat?, two officers accompanied me for
some distance into the interior. We
were unarmed, but were not molested
The roads over Which we traveled were
lined with pe'ople for milds, attracted
probably bv their first opportunity to
look upon the face of a white nian. In
some instances they crowded around us,
and, I suppose, commented Upon our
strange dress anH appearance, but they
raadeno attempt to molest us. We pardoned
their ob'trusiveness, because we
w&rd probably a great mystery to them."
In what respect do the Koreans resemble
" I could see but little resemblance.
The Chinese of different localities look
very different, as you know. The Mongolians
of the North do nob very much
resemble the Mongolians of the South,
who mostly come to California, and tho
Corean looks much unlike either class.
Their complexion is light, their hair
dark, long and wiry, arid their eyes
black. They remind tne of the North
American Indian, and I believe the resemblance
is sufficiently close to justify
the belief that Corea furnished the material
to populate this country originally.
All the difference between the two
races could have been produced by climate
and mode of living after the immigration
here. Owing to the fact that
naturalists have never had an opportunity
to investigate Corea, this resemblance
has not "been carried out to its
44 All the occupation the Coreans have
is agriculture, and the product of the
soil is mostly consumed at home. They
export a little rice and a few beans to
Japan, but they have no commerce and
no marine. All their "carrying is done
on animals or by means of imperfect
boats on the rivers. They appear inoffensive
and not disposed to go to war
with anybody, and yet the mass of the
people are said to be curious in regard
to outside affairs. The country is ruled
by a Kins:, who in his own dominion is
an absolute despot, having complete
power over the lives and property of tho
most noble of his subjects. Ho is assisted
in governing by a council selected
from $hp nobility, who have Chargra of

ing the monarch's exclusiveness, however,
in theory his ear is always open to
the people, and an appeal to him in all
grave matters is nominally permitted.
The interference of the no&hty in politics
is also high treason, and the princes
of the blood are excluded wholly from
power. About a year since a plot to
gain control of the Government was discovered
among the nobles, and every
person in any way connected with it
was beheaded. Tliis treatment of the
participants in the imbroglio was a
salutary lesson. Although the King
wields such power, there are two political
parties among the nobles of Corea.
One party is called the progressists, the
other by a name which implies their
opposed to progress.
The former party is at present in power,
a fact which rendered the negotiation
of our treaty possible." San Francisco
