Yankees Taking China---Attack
on Americans in China!
The North China Herald, of No
vember Hth, gives an account of a coI
lision between the Imperialists and
Americans at Shanghaia. The Im
perialists attempted to enter lome hous
ei near the north gate. Th American
sentinel stopped them and called out
the, guard, and, the proper signal being
given, a company ot soldiers and ma
rines were landed from the United
States sloop Vandalia, and marched to
the ground. The Imperialists fired up
on the Americans, and shots were ex
changed, but finally, upon the appear
ance oi a portion of the rebel army,
the Imperialists ran off.
Some of the Chinese papers have
cotinideralile to say as to the "specula
tion" of a Yankee who ha9 agreed to
recapture Fnh Shan from the rebels for
$100,000. It is said that the United
States consul will interfere to prevent
the consummation of this agreement.
The Hong Kong Register is of opinion
however that as several Americans
have been allowed to help the rebels in
late skirmishes near Canton, it is not
fair play to interfere when they are aid
ing the Imperialists.
Supreme Court of Ohio.
The Supreme Court of ibis Sute ad
journed its present killing this morning,
until the first Monday in April. Not
withstaning the vast amount of business
disposed of at this session, the sute of
the docket im peiati vily requires mother
session of ihe Court, tin account of the
unusual accumulation of business for
this term. The adjourned session will
last probably through the months of
April aud May.
Judge Warden, appointed to fill out
the unexpired term ot Judge Corwin,
leaves the bench by the expiration of
liia commission, and is succeeded by
Judge Swan. The manner in which
Judge Warden has discharged the duties
of his position, has been highly satis
fastory to the bar and the people,
and bus proved his eminent fitness for
the position. He has simply demon
strated to the public, the ability aud
learning as a jurist with which his many
friends kiitt'v him to be eudwued, be
fore bis appoiutmeiit.
Of Judge Swan's personal worth and
accomplishment we ueed say noth
ing in commendation; nor of our i arson
al esteem for ihe man. He will be of
gttnl tmce eid value to the jurispru
