[From a China letter in the Cleveland Herald.]
Manners and Customs and
Treatment of Women in
Tho climate horo is very peculiar.
There nro no seasons as with us; uprmg
tmd fall uro imKnown, ami even wiuter
ifl scarcely recognizable. Think of it
hero now in tho middle of January,
my houso is all open, no 6rcs, birds are
Hinging all around me, roses und ca
melias are in full blooi i in tho jfardens,
the morning glory is vlimbing and
blooming oyer tho highest trees m tho
grounds; greon peas, radishes, lettuce,
asparagus, Ac, aro daily on tho dinner
table, nnd last year I ato green corn
from tho cob at dinner in tho house of
a friend on tho 22d ot February. It
was raised in his garden and the seed
catno from America. And now wo
havo had ouo hundred and sixteen
consecntivo cloudlessdays, tho weather
ns beautiful and balmy as ever boanicd
from the heavens since Eden was closed.
Tho tctnpcruluro all that time has not
boon below 58 degrees, nor abovo 70
dogrees, ranging fioni 5S to (iC degrocs,
and it now looks ns .though tho same
delightful season would still continue.
Nothing of climato could bo concoived
of moro lovely than this seuson has
been. Frost has nover been known
hero. Tho summors are, of course,
pretty hot, though I did not find my
self greatly oppressed by the hen of
last summer. Certainly I did not ex
poso myself much to tho 6uu's rays.
Nono but tho natives of China or India
uo abroad in tho sunshino during tho
heat of summer. Such, cxposuro is dan
gerous to Americans nnd Europeans.
The su minor heat begins to bo oppres
sive about tho middlo of May and con
tinues till tho middlo of September.
During this time tho hot Windsor
south-west monsoons prevail; tho other
portion of tho year tho north-west
monsoon is tho prevailing wind, thoso
monsoons constitute really tho oiy
"soasons' known here, ; .
Vomnti in China is a nn nuomnlous
condition. Sho is regnrded simply ns
of no account; though, in view of tho
nullitudinous population of theso ro
gions. I don't exactly seo how. they
could well get along without thorn.
Still, women are not ill-used by their
"lords nnd masters . The latter, to all
nppoaranecs, simply givo them a "tcr
riblo lotting along." I havo, never
witnessed tho slightest act of gallantry
shown by a Chinaman to a Chinawo
man, nor havo I ever soon tho slightest
abuse of therm Tho 'dittlo-foDtod"
Women aro simply objocts of pity in
my mind. They nro voluntary crip
ples. It is merely a mark ofaristocra
cy of breeding, llich men will never
marry a largo footed woman. And yet
the aruo men condorau tho practice of
comprcsaing the feet. Hat if the
Chinesocrrin compressing tho foot
they are certainly guOoss of such
impropriety as to tho waist. Women
in China havo no waists; they are
nctually formless. Their stylo of
dress utterly conceals every Udo of tho
ngnre. 'iboir dress . is a system of
sacks nnd bngs sacks for the body,
bags for the limbs. -
Tlicy dress very richly; but nover
in vnriegatcd colors; hence calico is
unknown in China as a material for
dress. Tho trowsors, voluminous ns
you know, may bo of a color different
from the coat, which thoy call a shirt,
but tho san:o garment has nover but
ono color. The hair is drcssod in tho
most exaggerated manher conceivable.
I hnvo socn it stuck out from tho head
full ton inches from tho scalp. They
spend hours In its arrangomont; they
havo wonderfully luxurant suits of
hair. I havo seen them, when the hnir
was down, stand erect with thoir heels
upon tho hnir. In order to made it
keep its placo when fully dressed, in
stead of resorting to "ratfl," "mico,"
and "such small deer," they uso a kind
of gum, obtained by boiling tho chips
of a certain wood used by carpenters.
They nro extravagantly fond of para
ding thoir umbrellas ; I often soo Chi
nese women walking together in beau
tiful starlight evenings with their
umbrellas nt full spread I Tho nre
blessed with entiro exemption from
tho wearing of bonnets. They only
bond covering is n gay Madras hand
kerchief which thoy frcquonUy em
broider very claboratoly or this pur
pose They nro, in common with
their sex every where, very fond ot
jowolry, but it must bo nono of your
gold "nonsense, nothing mcanor than
pure porcelain or 3'odo stono will
suffice for colcstial taste. Glass is ad
missiblo if it bo a particularly, bright
I he Chineso aro excocdincrly modest
in their manners, nnd perfectly so in
dress. In tho bent of summer labor
ing men frequently go almost entirely
naked, but I never saw n China wo
man, even of tho laboring classes, mako
tho slightest exposure- of porsou even
under tho most oppressive heat. Tho
women aro generally very ignorant;
it is not considered needf ul lor them
to learn to read or write; hence but
fow can wnto their names or read at
There is one "peculiar institution"
here that ladies delight in, and which
I am sure you would bo pleased with:
i. o. tho palanquin, (pronounced, ns I
now learn, tho 'palankeen' accent on
last pyluble). Ladies ure uniformly
delighted with this mode of locomotion,
for in their palanquins tho dear crea
tures aro literally transported. Tho
idea of being carried aoout on the
6houldei B of men seems to havo, with
them, a peculiar fascination that horse
flesh can by no means produce La
dies palanquins nro handsoiuoly cov
ered with broadcloth richly embroid
ered, and on tho inside are elegantly
draped with damask and lace, und tit
ted with movable blinds and shades,
that the fair occupants may rido out
en maxijue, if so desiring, and their
characteristic curiosity still bo grati
fied by seeing all without, themselves
remaining unseen. If two ladies rido
out together, , their coolies, bring
palanquins sido by side, and thus
move along in conversation as easily as
if sitting in tho sumo enrriugo sent, and
moro so, as tho moving carringo is
noisy, the palanquin noisclosa.
Do 3'ou wish to go shopping or call
ling, your coolies wiil bring your pal
unquin up stairs to your dressing
room door, if so directed; will tako you
up and carry you "up stairs, down
stairs, or in my lady's chamber," bear
you from shop to shop, or into tho hall
or drawing-room of yourfriend's house,
or to tho house-top, if bo ordered, a
thing somewhat dillicult for a carriage

or short, as you please, ouo-half an hour
or one-hall a day uo difference; your
driver never becomes impatient, your
team never grows restivo. On your
summons or approach,- they como

stalwart shoulders, shielded from tlio
sun by thoir enormous hats (four feet
across the brim), und if you are in baste
you have only to say "ficht eo," and
iirvaythey lope at five miles nn hour.
Is tho road clean, quiet and cool, shad
ed by overarching trees and inviting
to a walk, you havo only to say 'man
man," and your coolies will sot you
gently down, and you incontinently
walk off npon the level ground; no
flippory carriage steps to muddy nor
moving wheels to climb over or to fall
Your coolies folltw your footstopi

enough, you halt, nod immediately
your pulanqum is a.tyour sido; you
quietly stop in, and oat you go, with
nothing to do but simply to enjoy
moving through the air liko a bira,
without tho troublo of flying. You
have no driving to do, no colisiona to
guard against; no breakin down, turn
ing ovor, nor running away to be foar-
f ul of. Your team is nover to bo
hitchod, never frigh toned at firing
equibs or flying kites; nover shy, nor
kick, nor baulk, and are apparency
incapab'o of being tired out; the bri
dles nover slip off, the lines never bo
como entangled tho breeching never
breaks! And it must, be confessed
