WILL NOT ADV.VM'fi TE CAUSE OF
New York:, May 10. Advices
from Gen. Grant to April, repre
sent a very anxious feeling through
out Asia respecting restrictions of
Chinese emigration to America.
Grant's response to the address of
Chinese merchants at Penang, in
which they ask his "powerful in
fluence in their hehalf to advocate
the removal of those restrictions,
and thus restore the intercourse
between the two nations to its
former footing," wrs a very
emed remonstrance against me
contract system, which he declared
to be slavery. On that point he
said: "Americans will naturally
feel strongly. Jt was in order to
free one race from slavery that we
fousht a lonjr war. After the ter
tible sacrifices made during that
war to free the negro, it could not
be expected that. Americans would
consent to the revival in another
form of slavery, in which the Chi
naman was the victim." He said
that this w;is the objection on the
part of the Americans to Chinese
immigration. In other respects

the' chose to make their home
with us, the welcome they extended
to the rest of the world. In his
address he does not once allude to
the prejudice against cheap labor
nor to the peculiar sentiments of
California. lie doubted, and no
one could but doubt, that in the
end, no matter what agitation
might for a time effect at home,
the American people would treat
the Chinese with kindness and
justice, and not deny to the free
and deserving people of that coun
try the asylum they offer to the
jest of the world.

crease of distress and famine join
ed to incompetency, corruption
and want of organization on the
part of the officials, is producing a
most serious state of affairs.
Cholora in Peshawur is threaten

Deccan, and especially in the
Poonah district For some time
past bands of Dacoits have been

and villages. They seem to form
a part of the regular organization

financial department. They are
suspected of having set the fire
which destroyed the government.

A dispatch from St. Petersburg
on the 19th tells of another town
in flames in the east,-Petropaulaus-ki,
in Siberia. This is about the
15th place destro3red by fire in
that portion of the world within a
month. The planets are getting
in their work, it seems.

Mexican officers captured recently
in the ranks of the revolutionary
party in Honduras will be tried by
court-marshal and shot.
