'TEH DAHA EVENING TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1867.
TTi TWice Lrtter, an American pnper, which
la lunt been started ittPhanghHe, thus describes
remarkable HtrTnrt examination which la held
In the Celestial Empire:
The examination of candidates for Kyn-bnn,
or the decree ot A. M.. In the province o Klans;
mi, wh held at Mankln, at the Koon Yuen.
In the Chinese 8th moor, from the 8th to the
16th day. The number In attendance was
aljteen thousand, and the Manainatlotis were
conducted with closed doors r 1,prry!V:
iellor named Lieu, awistcd by a chnl'?1?
Same d Won, both of whom were Bent down
from Pckin. Tbe names and number of the
anccfMful candidates have not transpired at
thU date. The number, however. It I said, will
t exceed 100. Tbe moat remarkable clrcum
t tanccs connected with the examination are the
There waa an old man ajred 103 years, accom-
anWbybisson.njred 80. hi grandson of 60,
andthe (treat grandson of 20 years-the two
former of whom, according to Chinese prece
dent will attain at least to an honorary decree.
The second most remarkable fact was the larsje
umber of deaths that occurred In the stalls,
amounting to'seventy. As the doors were closed
and seated, their bodies were passed over the
wall, and coflins and other expenses of burial
nrov'ided by the mandarins. It is worthy of
Bote, a showing the atatvt of the Government
Anglo-Chinese school at Bhanshae, nnder the
cbaree of the Rev. Younsr J. Allen, of the Ame
rican MethodljtMlsBloD, that six out of the ten
in the first claps of that school also went up as
candidates for the degree of A. M.
Horrible Sport. '
M. Jules Richard, writing to the Paris Figaro,
ascribes the death of Mr. Julian Watts-Russell,
of Ham Hall, (Staffordshire, who fell as a volun
teer in the Pope's army at the battle of Montana,
to another Englishman, who was fighting on
the Garibaldlan side. The writer says:
"Amonpst the originalities of this laJ cam
paign, 1 have learned one which deserves to be
embalmed in hiBtory. An Englishman follows
the Garibaldlan forces. He ta armed with a riflo
of excessively long range, and made expressly
for long shots; lo this weapon is fitted a
small telescope, and a reflecting mirror
permits our Englishman to sweep the country
to a distance of one thousand eight hundred
yards.' Comfortably installed on a height, out
of retch of the enemy's shot, he picks off his
men in an artistic manner, just as a sportsman
shoots down larks. This sanguinary eccentric
keeps a sporting book, in which be Jots down
the exact circumstances ot every homicide he
commits. He has no political opinions; he is
a simple slayer of men; but, as no regular
army would permit Buch 'sporting,' he attches
imfelf to tbe Irregular Garibaldlan bands,
rom tbe position he occupied at Montana,
kere is every reason to believe that it was he
that killed young Julian (Watts) Russell, ot
whom I spoke in my last letter."'
WraTOir. Dan Rice is out in a card, in a
Cleveland paper, in which he says: "As an
evidence that I deem him (Weston) both
honest and able to do even better than the
conditions of his match required, I will wager
$60,000, f 10,000 to go to Weston if he wins,
and the balance to be donated by the .winner
to any public charity, that ha can walk one
hundred miles in twenty-three oonseoutive
