The present emperor of China is
Huang Hsu, who succeeded to the throne
Jon. 12. 1875. He was one of tbe young
est monarchs who ever ascended the
throne, being at tbe date of accession
only 8 years old. There bavo been 22
dynasties in China, the royal history of
this ooontry being better ascertained
than that of any other which reaches
back to ancient times. With some few
breaks, tho Chinese have bad a regular
succession of sovereigns since Fuhhi,
who, the Chinese say, reigned from B.
C. 2852 to 2737. According to Chinese
tradition. Fa bin was no less a persctn
age than the Noah of the Scriptures.
who, after leaving his ark on Monnt
Ararat, traveled east and founded the
Chinese empire. Chinese history asserts
that several of their early monarchs
ruled xor over a century each ; one reicn
ing over China for 115 years, another
for 102, another for 100, and so on. It
is considered probable by historians that
these figures represent rather dynasties
than tbereignBof individual sovereigns.
China has had in almost direct descent,
with no more than two or three breaks
in the history of tho royal family, S3
sovereigns, 03 emperors, 2 Tartar rulers,
0 Mogul emperors and 3 empresses.
What Bales the World.
Many years ago John Bronebum.
Lester Wulluck, Artemus Ward and oth
ers used to meet after tbe play at
Windhnrst's, in Park row. One night
tne question, "What rules tho world?"
arose, and various opinions were ex
pressed. William Ross Wallace, who
was present, retired before long, and
some time later called Thomas J. Leigh
from the room and handed to him a
poem which he had just written. Mr.
Leigh read it aloud to the company, and
Mr. Brougham made a happy little
speech" of acknowledgment The thing
was entitled "What Rules the World,"
and the first stanza ran :
They any that man la mighty.
Ho governs land and sea.
Be wields a mighty scepter
O'er lessur powers that be.
But a mightier power nnd stronger
Man from his throne has hurled.
And the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the bond that rules the world.

City of Mexico, March L While 175
men were at work in the Sombrerete
company's mines at Zaeatecaa Saturday
the mine took fire imprisoning' all the
men. Every effort was made to save
the men. but it seems in vain. The
principal shaft is 3,000 feet deep, and a
rescuing party went down to the
bottom, but was nearly suffocated by
smoke. The Cornish miners displayed
unusual heroism in attempting the re
lief of the imprisoned men. Ten bodies
"have been taken out and all show signs
of asphyxiation. There Is no longer any
doubt that the 175 miners perished. The
city of Zaeatecaa is a city of mourning
and consternation, this being the great
