The Queen of England, who rules
but does not govern, has excited some
bad feeling in London in consequence
of her retiring to the sea side for recrea
tion at the present critical time in pub
lie affairs. It is demanded that she re
turn to the Capital and perform the
duties of her station. In this country
so simple is the structure and machin
ery of government that it does not re
quire average talent to manage it, nor
even the presence of the Chief nor his
' .abinet, where the archives and flag rep
resent the Capital. With as little con
:ern for the interests of the people, as
the Sultan of Turkey, Grant colors his
meerschaum at Long Branch, attends
horse races at Saratogo, visits his rural
plantations at St. Louis, recreates at
West Point, and at Newport, and will
oon go to New York to wine and dine,
nnd go a yachting. If the people .i
Europe will not permit this in their
Sovereigns why should giateT pa
tience be expected of this people ? It
must not be imagined because Grant
nnd Bocttteix are on a lark which lasts
the summer 6eason, that the taxes of
the people are not assessed and collect
ed. The gentlemen who attend to
this part of the government don't die,
resign, or run away until the last dol
lar has been collected, when they fre
quently divide with the Treasury De
partment, keeping the largest portion.
There are three hundred and fifty two
defaulting revenue agents published
by the present Secretary of the Treas
ury. There will be twice as many for
the year 1870. They know there is no
system at Washington, no head to any
accounting bureau, worth a straw.
They say openly if Grant and his Sec
retaries don't care, why should they
So the hard earned money of the toil
ing millions goes into the pockets of
thieves, or is squandered by reckless
ofSciak. Graxt and his Cabinet are
more like a jolly set of bummers than
the heads of the nation.
"Since the close of Johnson's
Administration, United States ueca
tities have increased about 11 per

merit occupying a prominent posi
tion m the columns of Radical
newspapers, and made the basis ot
a claim to popular indorsemen for
their party. Accepting it as true
8Dd we believe it is nearly so how
does this enhancement of the price
.of Government bonds affect the peo
pie who are thus called . upon to
rejoice at it? if the debt weie to
be paid, as it should he, in enrren
cy of equal value with that in
which it was contracted, the tas
paying laborers of the country
would be called upon to pay on'y
about 50 per cent., and m some
cases even less than that proportion,
f the face of the bonds in gold.
The Radical majority in Congress.
Lowever, haveexpiesslj- repudiated
this equitable and honest principle
of payment, and resolved that the
bondholders Bball receive a dollar
to coin in exi-.hango for their paper
which only calls for forty or fifty
cents. But, meanwhile, the enor
mous taxes levied upon the iudustrj'
and commerce of the country pro
duce a heavy surplus revenue: and
the policy adapted by Mr. Boct
wet l, and approved by his p8rty, is
to invest this surplus " for Govern
ment account in bonds at the mar
ket price. According to the state
ment above quoted, then, the Treas
ury is compelled now to pay 11 per
cent, more for bonds thin they
could be bought for at the date ot
Grant's inauguration. This is the
fact for whieh our Radical friends
are now claiming credit; and if the
entire amount of outstanding bonds
say $2,000,000,000 worth could be
purchased tit the same rate, we
should pay tor them, exactly $220,
Q;0$9" more than they were w.orth
under Johnson's Administration.
In other words, we have already
added that amount to the volumo of
the debt, and as the Radical poncy
produces its effect in the further
advance of the price ot bonds, of
course the burden upon tho people
will be proportionately increased.
Let it be remembered that this is
one of the results of their policy
upon which the party itself astis
the judgment of the people
Increase of Post Offices. Du
ring the fiscal year ending on the
30th of June last, the number of
post offices .m the country has been
increased 1,482, and there are now in
operation 1,768 more than were in
existence at tho beginning of the
present Administration. The trreat
tr part of the offices are in the South,
but some of tho Western States show
rapid increase. The largest num
ber established in any one State du
ring the past year was in Kansas,
which showed an increase of 200.
-.Not a single bowel of compas
sion is numbered among the entrails
of the Radical poIiti'Maw of New
York. They are determined to lead
that sacrificial lamb, Horace Greeley
to the shambles, despite his protest.

Thb New York Ttibune publishes
the following, which touches on the
question of Chinese immigration :
"And first, to illustrate the pres
ure that pushes them across the Pa
cific Ocean, imagine a tank fu'l of
water in a chamber, and a tank as
large below, only one-tenth as full,
connect them with a throe-inch tube,
fitted with a 6top-cock. ' The full
tank represents C'nfna, will) her
tour millions cf people, tho lower
tank Ameiica, with forty millions;
the tube is the steamship that rut.s
from China to California, and dis
charges Chinese at tho rate of one
thousand a month; tho stop-cock is
tho possible legislation that may cut
off this influx. The question of the
hour is, whether the permanent wel
fare of American society requires
any legislative handling of this stop
cock. A common Chinaman has no oth
er idea of life than to work steadily,
do his own cooking, washing, iron
ing and mending, aril spend a great
deal less than ho earns. His father
and all his ancestors, as far back a
to tho timo of Aaron or Abraham,
had no other idea of life. A hut, a
few j-ards of cloth, a double-handful
jf vico or wheat, a slice of poik, a
frying-pan, and a strip of rush mat
ting for a bed, theso arc to what he is
born and with these, in his own
land, he expects to die, and die con
lent. When he comes to America,
his simple aim is In lay up a small
sum of money, on which ho can live
at ease when he goes back. I saw
a miliar fifty-two years old; he look
ed thin and worn, as though ho had
never known aiij-thmir but steady
toil and rough fare. He has been
here five years, and has 3300 in gold.
Last Monday he took Iho 6toamer
to Canton. lie will go home lo his
wife, and be a man in easy circum
stances the rest of his days, ihey
make no eight-hour protests; thj3
have no strike?; they can not un
derstand what a trado union means.
They will work for fifty eenrs till
they hear of some man who gives
sixty. Then they go to work for
hint till they know of a chance to
make seventy-five cents.
Though ther work on railroads
and in wheatfields, and work we!l,
I think they will be found most use
ful about houses and gardens, and
in factories. They have a wonder
ful aptness for doing just as the' set
the 'Melican man' do. For exam
ple, the Chmeso quarter in Sacra
mento caught fire and burned down
a few months aero. They hired an
American carpenter to put them up
one cabin. As he worked they
stood by nnd watched liko cats.
When the house was done they paid
him his price, and then fell to with
saws and hammers and put up a
row of houses exactly.Iiko the pat
tern. They copied him inch for inch
and nail for nail. This peoplo do
not reason. They havo no original
ideas. They do a thing not because
they know why it should be, but
because they saw it so in the pat
tern they go by. In remembering
the movements of the teacher and
following him with b'ind obedience
they have no equal. There is with
them but one right way. They
pound their drum in Joss house
just thirty eight times; thirly-6evcn
would be impiety; thirty nine a sac
rilege. If they see a carpenter drive
five nails inio a clap-board, the al
ways and ever after use five nnils in
a board ; six would break the charm.
This blind accuracy makes them
good machinists. Thoy are very
quick to understand a siwing-ma
chine, a spindle, a loom, a carding
machine and a turning lathe. Pon
derous engines and the lot-omotivo
they do not like to use. The seenrH
frightful, and not without connec
tion with evil but mighty genii.
The3 love delicate and marvelous
arts. The happiest Chinaman I saw
in San Francisco was aosislant in a
first class photographic gallery.

out. tho plate from the dark room,

smelling closet, tho delight with
which he studied the wonderful im
print of the sun, aro oven fresh, and
wholly without limit. In handling
shoemakers' tools they show the ut
most facility, and learn each 6lep
thoroughly, yet in a wonderful short
tune. So of the jowelers' art.
Their quick, patient and rapid touch
exactly suits watchmaking, and I
expect to see hundreds of them busy
at Waltham tnd Elgin.
For factory work they are ad
mirably suited. Quick to learn,
deft in handling machinery, patient
beyond comparison, ihey soon
master all tho details of manufac
ture; and having once been shown
how a piece of work must bo dune,
never vary from the original pat
tern. They are monopolizing the
factory work on he' Pacific coast,

parts of the countrj. A class of

work well and mind their own bu

Ma lion's fine army and tho fortunes

'I have already telegraphed,
briefly, the facts uf tho battles ot
Tuesday and Wednesday, each day's

at tho close of ea;h day were favor

on the line of the Mouzon Railroad.
At 5 o'clock the Prussiai.s recom
menced the battle, making simul
taneous attacks on the French front
and left flank. The fighting at first
was confined to art'llery, both
armies firing incessantly. the
French evidently having weaker
forces of guns than the Prussians.
At noon a fierce attack was made
by the Prussian intartry at Douzy
with tho object of weakening the
French center; but, after tremend
ous fighting, the Prussians fell back.
A pause seemed to take place at 1
o'clock, firing being loss incessant,
but it was only tho preludo to yet

not in condition to resist. At 12
o'clock a party of officers, headed
by General Wimpffen, left Sedan
bearing a flag of truce. It was
receiving by tho Prussian advanced
guard, and conducted to tho Pruss

formally surrendered the French
army and fortress to King William.
Thj French party also bore a letter
