Canton 1,000,000 Macoa 60,000 Hong-Kong 250,000 Swatow - 200,000 Amov 250,000 Foo-Chow 1,250.000 Wan-Chu 300.000 Ningpo 400,000 Hang Chean 1.200,000 Shanghai * 1,000,00# Total 5010.000 These ports have a foreign commerce of $900,- 000,000, and an enormous domestic trade, besides which we have the immense internal commerce of the Empire, radiating from these points, through its canals and navigable rivers. The cable being laid, this company proposes erecting land lines, and establishing a speedy and trustworthy means of communication, which must command there, as every where else, the commu nications of the Governmont, of business, and of social life especially in China. She has no postal system, and her eniy means nowofcommuuicating information is by couriers on land, and by steam ers on water. The Western World knows that China is a very large country, in the main densely peopled ; but few yet realize that she contains more than a third of the human race. The latest returns made to her central authorities for taxing purposes by the local magistrate make her population Four hun dred and Fourteen millions, and this is more likely to be under than over the actual aggregate. Nearly all of those, who are over ten years old, not only can but do read and write. Her civili zation is peculiar, but her literature is as exten sive as that of Kurepe China is a land of teach ers and traders ; and the latter are exceedingly quick to avail themselves of every proffered facili ty for procuring early information It is observed in California that the Chinese make great, use of the telegraph, though it there transmits messages in English alone. To-day great numbers of fleet steamers are owned by Chinese merchants, and used by them exclusively for the transmission of early intelligence. If the telegraph wo propose connecting all their great seaports, were now in existence, it is believed that its business would pay the cost within the first two years of its suc cessful operation, and would steadily increase thereafter No enterprise commends itself as in a greater degree renumerative to capitalists, and to our whole people.

Their introduction into this country from Ger many occurred in 1825. THEY CURED YOUR FATHERS AND MOTHERS, And will cure you and your children. They are entirely different from f -w the many preparations now in the country cai l—l led Bitters or Tonics. They are no tavern A -"-preparation, or any thing like one; but good, honest, reliable medi cines They are The greatest known remedie* for Liver Complaint, DYSPEPSIA, Nervous Debility, JAUNDICE, Diseases of the Kidneys, ERUPTIONS OF THE SKIN and all Diseases arising from a Disordered Liver, stomaeh, or IMPURITY OF THE BLOOD Constipation, Flatulence. Inward Piles, Fullnes of Blood to the Head, Aridity of the Stomach, Nausea, Heartburn, Disgust for Food, Full ness or Weight in the Stomach, Sour Eruc tations, Sinking or Fluttering at the Pit of the Stomach, Swimming of the Head; Hurried or Difficult Breathing, Fluttering at the ss. Heart, Choking or Suffocating Sensa I ft tions when in a Lying Posture, Dimness of U-" Vision, Dots or Webs before the sight, Dull Pain in the Head, Defi ciency of Perspiration. Yellowness of the Skin and Eyes, Pain in the Side, Back, Chest, Limbs, etc., Sudden Flushes of Heat, Burning in the Flesh, Constant Imagi nings of Evil and Great Depression of Spirits. All these indicate diseases of the Liver or Di gestive Organs, combined with impure blood. HOOFLAND'S GERMAN BITTERS is entirely vegetable and contains no liquor. It is a compound of Fluid Extracts. The Roots, Herbs, and Barks from which these extracts are made, are gathered in Germany. All the medi cinal virtueus are ex . tracted from them by a scientific Chemist. ■ ft Those extracts are then forwarded to this country to be used ex pressly far the manutacture of these Bitters. There is no alcoholic substance of any kind used in compounding the Bitters, hence it is the only Bitters that can be used in cuses where alcoholic stimulants are not advisable. HOOFLAND'S GERMAN TONIC is a combination of all the ingredients of the Bit ters, with pi.re Santa Cruz Rum, Orange, etc. It is used for the same diseases as the Bitters, in case where some pure alcoholic stimulus is required. You will boar in mind that these remedies are en tirely different from any others advertised for the cure o? the diseases named, these being scientific preparations of medicinal extracts, while the oth ers are mere deeoctions of rum in some form. The TONIC is decidedly one of the most pleasant and agreeable remedies ever offered to the public. Its taste is exquisite. It is a pleasure to take it, while its Ufa-giving, exhilarating, and medicinal quali ties have caused it to be known as the greatest of all tonics. DEBILITY. There is no medicine equal to Hoofland's Ger man Bitters or Tonic in cases of Debility. They impart a tone |T and vigor to the whole system, strengthen JL the appetite, cause an enjoyment of the food, enable the stomach to di fest it, purify the blood, give a good, sound, ealthy complexion, eradicate the yellow tinge from the eye, impart a bloom to the cheeks, and change the patient from a short-breathed, emaci ated, weak, and nervous invalid, to a full-faced, st-out, and vigorous person. Weak and Delicate Children are made strong by using the Bitters or Tonic. In fact, they are Family Medicines. They can be administered with perfect safety to a child three months old, the most delicate female, or a man of ninety. These remedies are the best Blood Purifiers ever known and will cure all diseases resulting from bad blood. Keep your blood pure; keep your Liver in order, -y- keep your digestive organs in a sound, I healthy condition, by the use of these reroe -L k dies, and no diseases will ever assail you. The best men in thecountry recommend them. If years of honest reputation go for anything, you must try these preparations. FROM HON. GEO. W. WOODWARD, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Pennsylva nia. PHILADELPHIA, March 16, 1867. I find that "Hoofland's German Bitters" is not an intoxicating beverage, but is a good tonic, use ful in disorders of the digestive" organs, and of great benefit in cases of debility and want of ner vous action in the system Yours Truly, GEO. W. WOODWARD. FROM HON JAMES TAOMPSON. Judge of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. PHILADELPHIA. April 29, 1866.

JACKSON—DEAR SIR: —I have been fre quently requested to connect my namo with rec ommendations of different kinds of medicines, but regarding the piaotioo as out of my appropriate sphere, I have in all cases declined ; but with a clear proof in various instances, and particularly in my own family, of the usefulness ot Dr. Hoof land's German Bitters, I depart for once from my usual course, to express my full conviction that for general debility of the sjjtein, and es pecially for Liver Com plaint, it is a safe MIKI valuable preparation. In some cases it may fail ; bnt usual L N ]y, I doubt not, it will be very beneficial to those who suffer from the above causes. Yours, very respectfully, J II KENNARD, Eigth, below Cuates Street.

A Segro Marries a Radical's Daughter ami Seduces her Sister. Mr. Daniel Hoy is a radical who lives in Lorberry, about four miles a bove Pinegrove, in this county. He is a thorough believer in the doctrines, teachings and principles of Radicalism, and regularly votes the Radical ticket. He was an advocate, too, of the fif teenth amendment, and treats the ne gro as "a man and brother." Mr. Hoy has a daughter Eliza by name, who is very fair to look upon. John Bowe is one of the "coming men," as black as the ace of spades, but what else there is enticing about him we are unable to say. Between John and Eliza some time since there sprung up a warm in timacy and affection, which resulted about two weeks since in the twain being united in the holy bonds of mat rimony by a Radical clergyman of Pinegrove. Now they are man and wife. But "the course of true love never did runsmooth," and Mrs. Bowe's fath er has raised a storm of indignation o ver theresult of his own paternal teach ing and belief. His daughter believed that her sable lover was "a man and a brother," and as good as she was her self. What difference to her if his skin was many shades darker and blacker? Him she loved and to him she plighted her vows. He way her all in all, her present and future, the sunlight of her existence. Were ever the characters Othello aud Desdemona better assumed ? What the sequel will be, remains to be seen, as the father of Mrs. Bowe is still on the war path af ter the clergyman who disgraced his manhood and calling by tying the nup tial knot between two such lovers! But this is not all. Mrs. Bowe has a sister, as fair to look upon as she. Between this sister and Mr. Bowe an intimacy has also existed the fruits of which will be reaped shortly. "She loved not wisely, but too well," and souu another Japhet will appear in search of a father. She has heard of, read of, and seen inaijy a black sheep in a flock, and from her conduct she seems to prefer the black ! To her sor row anil shame she has found out what a gay deceiver this black Lothario has proven himself to be, We presume Mr. Bowe is a happy "man and broth er," being the husband of one sister, and so soon to assume paternal rela tions to a litle "kinky," and the moth er of whom we have already described. So much for Mr. Bowe, Mrs. Bowe and her sister.- PoltsvUle Standard. LKVSONS IN DECENCy.-THE NEW AI.- LII.S. "Knock down the d—d blue coated white trash." "Lefts kill every d—d Democrat." Such, fellow citizens, were the cries under whose influence the glo rious Republican party, the party of "great moral ideas," the high-toned gentlemen's party, the all the talents party, went into action in Washington City on the Tthjinst., armed with clubs, pistols and razors—the latter the favor ite weapon of the freed man—these cra zy negroes, incited by such miserable white men as John W. Forney and other speakers at their Republican as semblies, ran riot in their excitement through the streets of our Capital. The police, however, brought these colored gentlemen to their bearings, although "the colored troops fought nobly." Are we to have these scenes enacted here too for the sake of an in creased Republican vote? Is our city to be the scene of negro riot and outrage? Is the cry which re sounded through the streets of Wash ington to be re-echoed wherever these don i i -savages possesssufficien t n urn hers to endue them with a riotous courage? Surely the party which grovels so low as to ally itself to such auxiliaries, must be condemned as unworthy the fellowship of any man possessing ordi nary self respect. The dusky barber at Willard's Hotel is Select Councilman, and one of the Common Council is the head waiter at the National Hotel. In a few years our own council may be mottled in like fashion ; who knows how soon, for Sambo is strong on the hill, and may command one or two in council. Fough! how the whole thing disgusts a man possessing decent instincts, and how such wanton trifling with the sacred forms on which free government rests fills with serious ap prehension every thoughtful citizen. SUGGESTIONS* OF A IIKVII IMI HEART. The Washington correspondent of a Sunday paper, after stating that Gen. Butler had called on the President and the Secretary of War, to urge the adoption of measures for the punish ment of crimes committed in the Southern States, remarks: It is understood that Secretary Raw lins appreciated the gravity of the situation, and will shortly issue or ders to officers of the ariuy command ing in the Southern States, directing that, whenever a political murder oc curs, the troops shall arrest all the principal male citizens within a radius of two miles of the place where the affair may have happened, and keep them in confinement as hostages until the perpetrator of the murder is dis covered and punished. This solution of the trouble hardly comes up to General Butler's ideas of what should be done. He held that nothing less than a terrible example will prevent the repetition ot such murders, aud believes that whenever a political murder is committed, the country, for ten miles square from the scene, should be devastated, and not a human habitation nor crops should be left to shelter and sustain those who, while they may not be actively guilty, passively encourage such crimes. Ben. Butler may be devilish enough to suggest such an outrage, and the administration may be had enough to execute it, but we doubt whether they I have the courage to carry out such hel ish views. A TOUCHINU INCIDENT. We have never read a more touch ing, beautiful incident than the follow ing which occurred a short time since in one of the French courts. The nat ural nobility of the brother and the af fectionate faith of the sister, are exam ples to he followed by the unfortunate youth of our own or any country, and an evidence, however dark the day, an honest heart and a firm resolve will overcome the greatest obstacles. A French paper says that Lucille Rouen, a pretty girl, with blue eyes and fair hair poorly but neatly clad, was brought before the Sixth Court of Correction, under the charge of va grancy. "Does any one claim you ?" asked the magistrate. "Oh ! my good sir," said she, "I have no longer any friends; my father and mother are dead, and I have only my brother James; but he is as young as I am. O, sir, what can lie do for me?" "The court must send you to the house of correction." "Here 1 am sister ; here I am, do not fear," cried a childish voice front the other end of the court, and at the same instant a little boy, with a lively coun tenance, started forth from amid the crowd and stood before the judge. "Who are you ?" said he. "James Rouen, the brother of this poor little girl." "Your age?" "Thirteen V" "And what do you want?" "I come to claim my Lucille." "Buthaveyou themeansof providing for her ?" "Yesterday I had none; but I now have. Don't be afraid." "Oh! how good you are, James." "Well, let us see, my boy," said the magistrate; "the court is disposed to do all that it can for your sister ; but you must give us some explanation." "About a fortnight ago, air," ex claimed the boy, "my poor mother died of a bad cough, for it was cold at home. We were in great trouble. Then I said to myself, 1 will become an artisan, and when I know a good trade, I will support my sister. 1 went apprentice to a brush-maker. Every day 1 used to carry her half of my dinner, and at night I took her se cretly to my room, and she slept on my bed while I slept on the floor. But it appears that she had not enough to eat. One day she begged on the Boul evard and was taken up. When I heard that, I said to myself, "Come, my boy, things cannot last so; you must find something better." I soon found a good pi act where I am fed and clothed and have twenty francs a month. 1 have also found a good wo man, who, for these twenty francs, will take care of Lucille, and teach her needlework. I claim my sister." "My boy," said the judge, "your conduct is very honorable. However, your sister cannot be set at liberty till to-morrow." "Never mind, Lucille," said the boy, "I will come and fetch you early to morrow," then turning to the magis trate he said, "I may kiss her, may I not, sir ?" He then threw himself into the arms of his sister, anil both wept fond tears of affection. prairie life for invalid girls. [By Graco Percival | I write this sketch in the hope of a rousing one of those pale, nervous, young ladies who lie on their sofas the most of the time, to take more exer cise, and if possible, out in the fields, among the birds and flowers. My health had always been rather delicate, until we moved out on the farm near ly a year ago, and now 1 can hardly believe that I am the same person, so great is the change. One morning last May papa came in, and finding me re clining on the lounge, asked me if I would not like to help to drop corn. Never having been accustomed to work much, I looked surprised, I have no doubt, at the proposition ; but after siderable coaxing, I at length rather dubiously consented to try the expe riment. So, after arraying myself in a short calico dress, thick shoes and a large straw hat, we set out for the field. Our way led through a meadow of the brightest green spangled with dew, and embroidered with beautiful wild flowers. The field was situated on a knoll and commanded a wide view of the surrounding pararie. I felt like shouting aloud, everything looked so lovely, that bright May morning. But there was the corn to drop! and 1 was soon busily engaged in this very ro mantic occupation. I did not become quite fascinated with it; though 1 fear my mind was more intent upon some day-dream, suggested by that lovely scene, than upon my work.— But that evening, when 1 sat down at the table, I felt that the day's work had done me good, and I was refresh ed in mind and body. I resolved to take a walk every day, and be out in the open air as much as possible. 1 have never had any reason to regret keeping that resolve. W ill that inva lid young lady for whose benefit I am writing this listen to a word of advice? If you can, make your home in the country ; take an interest in out-door woik and rural recreations, such as walking, riding, bathing and many others I might mention. A flower garden is a very pleasant place for ex ercise, while keeping it in order and enjoying is products. Everything is lovely in the country. There are mur muring brooks shaded by hand some trees, soft, velvety meadows, and beautiful birds and flowers, all leading your soul from the contemplation of things terrestial, up to Nature's God, and the glories of a clestial home. Mr. Short says the only thing he can pay these times is his addresses to the ladies and these he never allows to get overdue. BTKANGE, SAD TALK. A very singular hut sad story eomes to us from Illinois. A few weeks since Mrs. Dorcas L. Smith, the wife of one of the wealthiest men in the west division of Chicago, was found lying in her cellar, on a bright Sunday morning, with her throat cut front ear to ear. A knife by her side totd how it was done. The only cause for this dreadful act was harsh treatment on the part of the lady's husband, who, with his acquired wealth, had not suc ceeded in acquiring the habits of civil ization. The sudden and aw ful death of her mother made a deep impression upon her daughter Jennie the only one remaing at home; so much so that it is thought her mind became affected.— For several weeks past her health has perceptibly declined, and quite recent ly she became almost completely par alyzed. Indications pointed to a sys tem of poisoning, and alter much pur suasion the poor girl confessed that this was the case. Not caring to live after the decease of her mother, the unfortunate girl had ever since that sad event been taking different prepar ations of arsenic and other poisons, with the object of ultimately killing herself, and the continued use of the drugs had finally induced paralysis. Her condi tion is now a very precautious one, and it is considered very doubtful whether she can long survive. As she states the only motive for the commision of this system of slow suicide was a de sire to join her mother, from whom she had never been separated. CREOLE GIRL.— The mind and heart of a Creole girl, tenderly nurtured, are like a virgin page of paper on which no impressions has yet been made— innocent of evil thoughts or deeds, and unhackneyed by premature experien ces. The will of the parents has ever been the child's law, and that perni cious make-believe love-making styled "flirtations"—in which young Ameri ca indulges freely on entering her teens—the Creole girl would shrink from as immodest and shameful. The Creole girl is taken early into society, hut always under her mother's wing and strict supervision ; and her shrink ing modesty and timidity of manner surprise the American qr Englishman, accustomed to the frank fearlessness of his fair young compatriots. Until marriage, mademoiselle is as shy as a partridge, and never ventures long from the protecting wing of her chap eron, from whom iter partner takes her for the dance, and to whom he prompt ly returns her when the quadrille is over ; for unmarried women do not of ten waltz. Her conversation is carried on with blushing cheeks and downcast eyes, and no promenading the rooms after the dance—when whispered noth ings are exchanged, or soft glances shot at you by the fair Parthian hang ing on your arm—is permitted by Cre ole etiquette. The young girl would "compromise" herself who tried these. As for riding or walking alone with a man, married or unmarried, unless a very old one, the Creole girl would just as soon dream of letting him kiss her, and, in fact, would consider the one as improper as the other. A NEGRO has killed a Democratic Senator down South. The dispatch don't say whether this Democrat has had been imitating the example of the carpet-baggers, and making too free with the negroe's wife. It will be hard work for the ra&ical papers to make a Ku Klux outrage of this. The killing was the wrong way. If the ne gro had been killed, there would have been a terrible pow-wow in the radical camp. But as the murderer is a negro —one of the highly favored race— while the victim was only a white man and a Democrat, there is no oc casion to call out the military in this case. "Let us have peace." A PHYSICIAN examining a student as to his progress, asked him: "Should a man fall into a well forty feet deep, and strike his head against one of tiie tools with which he had been digging, what would be your course if called in as asurgeon?" The student replied: "I should advise them to let the man lie, and fill up the well." Profane swearing is abominable. Vulgar language is disgusting. Loud laughing is impolite. Inquisitive ness is offensive. Tattling is mean. Telling lies is contemtible. Slander ing is devilish. Ignorance is disgrace ful, and laziness is shameful. Avoid all the above vices, and aim at useful ness. "Dare are," said a sable orator, "two roads through this world. De one am a broad and narrow road dat leads to perdition, and de tudder am a narrow and broad road that leads to sure destruction." "If dat am de case," said a sable hearer, "dis culled individual takes to de woods." Ned Buntline having lectured on the evils of intemperance in Califor nia, many months, is now said to be illustrating by his personal example, the aforesaid evils and has gone into the faro banking business at White Pine. It is unlawful lor the soldiers sta tioned at Sitka to purchase liquor. They send the Russian children to the stores to purchase liquor for them, and from this practice the children are said to have become habitual drunkards. "How is coal now" inquired a gen tleman of a sou of the Emerald Isle, who was dumping a load of that arti cle. "Black as iver, sir, lojabers,"re sponded — _ MM THE time for the organization of i Democratic campaign clubs is near at hand. There should be thorough or ganization in every election precinct.

The best bread is made from firm, full, ripe, hard-graiued wheat, not too finely bolted, and freshly ground, in bolting flour, the gluten contained in the bran is removed. We might just as well, in cooking meat, remove all the fat and most of the lean, leaviug bone and tendon. That bran bread is re ly the most nutrious is seen in the fact that it is prescribed for dyspeptics. Even were the wheat when bolted, to contain the gluten thrown away in the branor even more nutritious substances, in would be too concentrated, and it would be advantageous to retain the bran. Fine Mead.— Beat to a strong froth the whites of three eggs, and mix them with six gallons of water; six quarts of strained honey, and the yellow rind of two dozen fine lemons, pared very thin. Boil all together during three quarters of an hour, skimming it well. Then put into a tub; and when luke warm add three tablespoonfuls of the best fresh yeast. Cover it and leave it to ferment. When it has done work ing transfer it to a cask, with the lem on peel in the bottom. Let it stand six hours, then bottle it. A Hint to Plowmen. —A. T. Thomas, of Wisconsin, says, in the Western ilu ral, that "if you wish to plow a lane ten rodswide, instead ofstriking out a land that will take one half that width, pace off five rods of the other end and stop; now back harrow as usual the required width arm then turn a squarecorner at the end, observing to have the end fur rouend on a paralleled line with the outside. By this means you will al ways turn around on the stubble, thus leaving the land untrodden, instead of 'dead furrows' you will have "ridges." Ginger Beer. —Take of ginger, bruised or sliced, one and a half ounces; cream of tartar, one ounce ; loaf sagar, one pound; one lemon, sliced; put them into a pan and pour six quarts of boiliug water upon them. When near ly cold put in a little yeast, and stir it for about a minute. Let it stand till next day, then strain and bottle it. It is fit to driuk in three days, but will not keep good longer than a fortnight. The corks should be tied down, and the bottles placed upright in a cool place. Lamp Wicks. —How to make them. Take a strip of Canton flannel three times the width of a wick, double it, so it will be three thicknesses, the smooth side out, and sew the raw edge and the doubled edge together over and over. Bo not get it too large, and it will burn as well as the best sale wick. Every one generally has scraps of Canton flan nel in the house, so that all a wick will cost will be about five minutes' work." At a farmer's club in Ohio, the dis cussion of the question resulted in the conclusion that August and February are the most suitable months for cut ting timber. In August thesummer's growth is mature and firm. In Februa ry the circulation has been for two or three months suspended by the cold t f winter. An English farmer broke up thirty acres of water nieadow which produced nothing but coarse edge grasses and rushes. After it was thoroughly drain ed and laid to grass, he was able to cut four crops of green fodder annually of the best quality. The same tilings could be done in thousands of cases in this country. Molasses Beer.— Six quarts of water, two quarts of molasses, half a pint of yeast, two spoonfuls of cream tartar. Stir all together. Add the grated peel of a lemon ; and the juice may be sub stituted for the cream tartar. Bottle after standing ten or twelve hours, with a raisin in each. Harvest Drink.—Mix with five gal lons of good water, half a gallon of vin egar, and two ounces of powdered gin ger. This will make not only a very pleasant beverage, but one highly in vigorating and healthful. A recent writer states that 250 bush els of potatoes remove 00 pounds of potash from the soil on which they are grown, consequently, wood ashes is one of the most valuable manures for this crop. Don't keep a calf tied or shut up in some dark corner, with hardly room enough to lie down. He needs the sunshine as much as heus, or the plants in the garden. Hops, mixed with the ordinary food, and given to cows, it is asserted by a French agricultural journal, will great ly increase the yield of the milk. Manure is greatly injured by lying in the rain. It needs shelter as much as cattle. "Where shall I put this paper so as to be sure of seeing it to-morrow ?" in quired Mary of her brother Charles. "On the looking-glass,'- was her broth er's reply. Josh Billings says: "I never bet any stamps on the man who iz always tell ing what be would have done if he had bin there. I have not ced that kind never git there." The man who tried to sweeten his tea with one of his wife's smiles has "fallen back" on sugar. Nothing like first principles after all. A dancer once said to Socrates, "You can not stand on one leg so long as 1 can." "True," replied the philoso pher, ''but a goose can." Which is the cheaper—a bride or a bridegroom? The bride—she is al ways given away, the bridegroom of ten regularly sold. * The South LaroliuaLegislature prom ises to give lands on easy terms to set tlers, in order to attraet_immign*tkm.
