The "Chinese question" is looming up in the near future as one that is likely to give us trouble, and it should therefore receive at this time the careful and dispassionate consideration of all thoughtful men. From a well-considered article entitled "Our Impending Chinese Problem," by Raphael rumpelly, we quote as fallows: Leaving out nil other questions, the capa city of America for receiving emigration is at present boundless, as compared with the capa city of all the world to supply i.t. An eminent English geographer has carefully calculated that the two Americas are cupal le"of support ing thirty-six hundred millions of inhabitants. Room and subsistence are not wanting. The capacity for absorption of labor is scarcely more limited. The end of the long-continued exodus from Europe cannot be far oil'; to think otherwise is to believe unjustifiably in a rapidly-approaching decay of the nations beyond the Atlantic. Social and political re forms raising the condition of the people, especially that of the women of the lowest classes, the increase in industrial prosperity, and the continued drain of skilled labor to foreign countries, seem to be silently working throughout Europe towards the establishment of a proper balance between population and means of support. The Chinaman in this country was for years excluded from all participation 'in the develop ment of the national prosperity, and was grudgingly allowed to work only in those gold . diggings which were considered worthless by the American. But when a pressing necessity arose for labor on the public works of Cali fornia and Nevada, the Chinaman was found to answer every need: nnd now, having be come identified with ouV internal improve ments, he has obtained recognition as a neces sary element of population the execution of great enterprises is based on his co-operation. For weal or woe. the Pacific Railroad is uniting more distant extremes than the two shores of our continent. The facilities for crossing the Pacific are yearly increasing: and so is also the knowledge of America in China. Unless obstacles be placed in the way, immi gration will increase rapidly; with additional encouragement it will soon become enormous. Having no rights, exposed to continued ex tortion, treated with contempt and indignity, branded as an idolator, and charged with every vice by his scrupulously just, religious, and virtuous neighbors, the Chinaman, feel ing that he has no position here, seeks Cali fornia as the pearl diver does the bottom of the sea, and returns as soon as possible to the free air of his native soil. Place these Chi namen on the same footing with other immi grants, and the result will be that, while many will return to the home of their forefathers, a large iortion will make this the home of their descendants. This was and is the case in the Dutch East Indies, where they were less oppressed than in California. Under these circumstances, if this immigra tion should be proportionate to the necessity for relief that exists in China, or to the capa city for receiving it here; or, again, if it should bear the same relation to the parent population that the emigration from Ireland and Germany bears Jo the home population of those countries, the male adults of Mon golian origin on this continent would soon outnumber those of the European race. When we consider that the prejudice of race is with us a part of the foundation of politics; that the moral characteristics of various nationalities become important parts of the framework on which parties are constructed; that the op posing armies which fight with the ballot, and at times threaten the sword, are, to a large extent, massed by races; when we con sider this, and tlien turn to the prospect of a homogeneous mass of people among us, their male adulU outnumbering largely those of all other component parts of the population and having no sympathetic bond with us in their language, traditions, or, so far as it goes for anything, their religion; then the social and political importance of this great problem dawns on the niiud. To the thinker who has come to look upon the Americas as the birthright of the Euro pean under the tuteluge of the Anglo-Saxon; presenting the prospect of a hemisphere peo pled with a new race built up .from the best elements of the European, numbering more than twice the present population of the globe; a race whiea wi)i bo homogeneous, en joying the most complete means of intercom munication by steam and electricity, having one anguage one f emu of ' government, an3 one idea of God; to him the startling possi bilities involved in the problem before us come as the discovery of neulectel rlnt which may invalidate the results of years of calculation. If the probabilities -of the case boar any proximate relation to the possibilities, the teeming populution of our hemisphere two or three centuries hence may have more Chings and Changs in their genealogical trees than Smiths and Browns; for, other things being equal, the predominant blood will be that of ihe race best able to maintain an undimin ished rate of increase; and the vitality of the Chinese nation during a constant struggle for life seems to bespeak for it at least equally favorable prospects in less crowded homes. With an emigration from China standing In the BAiue ratio to the home population that the driiin from Germany holds to the popula tion of that country, we should have an influx of more JJian one million Chinese yearly. Ten years Of this rate would place upon our preponderance of male adults of Mon golian blood over those of all the families of man among us. The perception of this possibility cannot but awaken in the mind of the.true Amurican the gravest thoughts. The social, political, nnd ethnological questions involved are of transcendent, importance. Ihe question of the prohibition or the heavy taxation of Chinese immigration is almost sure to lie one of the earliest and most bitterly fought political issues of the Far West. The hostility to the Chinese of the white laborers, especially of the Irish, is already beginning to show itself openly in the most violent acts of intimidation. But it is not difficult to foresee that any legislation, which has for its object the suppression of any social element or force that has once shown itself to be a necessity in rapidly car rying forward the system of internal improve ments on wnicn a large part of our material industry rests, must ultimately fail. We may therefore assume that the recogni tion of the necessity of Chinese labor in the Far West insuros an influx of Chinese pro portionate at least to me extent 01 tne great system of public works which will be needful for the growth of the Western States and Territories. We shall see, further on, that these Asiatics arc obtaining strono foothold in almost nil other branches of labor, because they answer the requirements better than any other class of people. It is therefore not im probable that they will nnd their way, in large numbers, to this side of tho Rocky Mountains. Is it probable that the party warfare of the country will leave this enormous quantity of possible pol. Ileal lorce in the latent condition pertaining to aliens Gaining the right to vote means gaining :i: . i. i . e i i;iii.t-iinmp, lutj ruiuovni 01 uisquanricauons, and the protection ol their distinctive inte rests nnd customs to a degree proportionate to the number of their votes. Having ob tained these, the Chinese emigrant will be come, beyond a doubt, a permanent citizen. With this prospect before us, it may not be uninteresting to glance at the characteristics of this race, both in countries to which they nave emigraieu, anu in tneir own nome. Twenty years of contact between the two races in California have done little towards removing the prejudice against the Chinese. They have poured steadily into and out of the country, but, surrounded by barriers, they have been forced to form a world of their own. Within this some fifty thousand men nave been thriving, while many of them have mnassed large fortunes. Many an enter prise, too, has swamped in failure, which Mould have given brilliant returns but for the tyranny of white workmen who prevented the employment of cheap Chinese labor. This tyranny is niej with at every step: from the court-room, where the Chinaman is denied the right of giving evidence in mixed cases, to the "gold diggings," where white rowdies. acting as self-appointed collectors, levy the mining tax, which is never assessed upon Americans. Recent! v, however, various manufacturers, farmers, and others, braving mat. wiia oeast, tne Irish mob, have begun to employ Chinese labor, and with such suc cess that capitalists see in it the sinew and muscle ol the Far West. A writer in the Oca-land Monthly, March, ISC'.t, says of the Chinamen: 'What they want Is employment and such pay as will support tliem ami leave something over to send bark to the father ami mother, or to the wife and t.hn children, left at home. So accustomed have they always been to jrive a full and honest day's labor to muse w uu mive nireu tliem. that t lev exneet to tr vn their employer the service of their muscle and their skill (luring all the hours of the clay, only asking a reuHonublo time for meals, together with the atipu- loiin nua micu ineil worn la liuutv The owners of woollen factories nraise them as the best of workmen. The officers and foremen of the Central Pacific Railroad on which some ten thousand Chinamen nr said to be at work speak no less highly of them. Their work is full and honest, no laggin-2 and story-telling, no whisky drinking, and few ngnts. Overseers declare that they can drill more rock and move more dirt with China men than with an equal number of men who claim this kind of occupation as their spe cialty. What they lack in bodily vigor is made up in persistency and steadiness. Indeed, California is just beginning to feel how suicidal her course towards Asiatic labor has been, and she is finding that her material prosperity is increasing apace with the inno vation upon that policy. The Chinese are found now in woollen, paper, and powder mills; in the borax works; in the hop planta tions, fruit orchards, and vineyards; following the reaping machines on farms, and working the salt-pits on the coast; doing almost uni versally the cooking, and engaged in hundreds of branches of industry that would be impos sible without their cheap lafcor. Tho sure result of this will be that, in a few years, the small savings of these workmen will, by accumulation, transform the coolie of to-day into the capitalist, contracting tq build railroads, owning large farms or factories and lines of whips, and making great commercial combinations. This is certain, for no people on the face of the earth advance so unswerv ingly in the accumulation of capital; and in its investment from childhood upward they combine the shrewdness of the Jews with the many-sidedness of the Yankee. What the Jews have been in banking, the Chinese may easily become in general commerce and in dustry on the Pacific coast. The llioerile Magazine for July presents an interesting variety of reading matter for young people, including one of Hans Chris tian Andersen's delightful sketches. The present number is finely illustrated, and is fully up to the usual standard of excellence. DICTIONARIES. How They are Marie The (iermnn "VV'or lerbueli." The rU Mill (huMe says: "The great 'Worterbuch, or dictionary of the German language, set on foot by the Brothers Gi-imm, has now reached about ihe midway of its course towards completion. It is seventeen years since the first instalment appeared, and its progress has been carried ou continuously and methodically ever since. The work itself forms an important era not only in the history of German literature, but in that of other European nations also; and it is not uninteresting to glance back over Home particulars of its origin and execution, as we find them stated in a recent number of the German periodical the Garteuliube. "In 18U7 seven professors of Gottingen auiT L to Sive up their chairs and tCniierritor,le8 of Hoover on account of IoaSSS!y m nPholding th Constitution against the wbitrary measures of King Ernest Among tJiese were Jacob and William Sm both deeply skilled studeuU in ph lol03 lore, whose researches had led them into much curious discovery concerning the .nti quities of the German language. he leisure which was now thrust upon them found them happily provided with a subject of literary in terest which their professional duties would never have left them time to prosecute At the suggestion of the publishing firm of Wiedmaun, they undertook the compila tion cf ao, exbaufttiye dictionary, whjeh. Wa,s to embrace the history of every word usocl in German literature since the time of Luther inclusive, giving its origin, its derivation, an ! its different applications and modifications nt the individual mind of different writers or the changes of custom may have produced them the terminus ad qium of the range of inquiry being fixed at the end of the Vkml decade of the present century. Some years after their expulsion from Hanover the Kino of Prussia gave'the brothers Grimm seats in the Academy' r ci - a i, 1 . i 1 i ... oi nciences i uernn; and tne nrst instalment of their dictionary, which was published in ir;L', nao inns me an vantage oi appearing with more honor than if it had issued froia their comparative retirement at Cassel. i ' "Fourteen years had been taken up with' preparations for the work. The result, aV seen in tins hrst instalment, fully justifies the fains with which the material had been col-j ected and sifted. The method pursued was! this: The brothers took a general survey of! ..11 1 .1 L 1 ,1 , . . ' uu niiowu uuiuurn, jjriii nun small, wno nail contributed to German literature since tho era of the Reformation. They then made ap-j iiikjuiiuii to a vast iiumoer oi siuuents mrougll out Germany, requesting them to read such or such books carefully, and annotate or ex tract for the purpose in hand. Many offered their services spontaneously; anl it was a proof of the national interest excited by the project that among tho volunteers were lite rary men of the most diverse opinions, pro vinces, professions, and tastes. Jacob Grimm, in his preface to the first published part, enu merates no less than eighty-three coadjutors in this" way. Then special directions were forwarded to each. On a piece of paper of prescribed size and shape he was to set down each word which struck him as employed by his author in any way unusual, characteristic, or for any reason worthy of attention; and with it the passage, prose or verse, in which it had occurred. "After a while a mighty mass of material poured into headquarters, from east, west, north, and south about a million of billets in all, it is roughly computed. To sort them was tho next business, and to arrange them under alphabetical heads. Two men were thus employed during a period of six months, working from early morning to late evening, collecting for each word the various citations applicable to it, and fastening them in a bundle together, then placing the whole in two gigantic chests ready for the further process of deciding the proportion of quotations and authorities to be retained, and tracing chrono logically and otherwise the shades and transi tions of meaning. The genius and taste of individual writers had to be considered as in fluencing the value to be attached to their testimony. Of the authors in the sixteenth century, with which the range of investigation begins, the greatest weight is attached to Luther, to Hans Sachs, and to the remarkable satirist Fischart, who, indeed, for this early period of the literature, is considered the most valuable of all. The seventeenth cen tury, a period of stagnation, or rather of retrogression in Germany, owing to the ett'ects of the Thirty Years' War, furnishes no more eminent authorities in the use of language than Gryphius, Opitz, and Lenau; while for the eighteenth century the foremost rank is assigned to Lessiug, Jean Paul, and Schiller. On the whole, the three authors most care fully collated and analyzed for the purpose of determining the changes and legitimate uses of the written language are Fischart, Luther, and Goethe. . "For a time much doubt was entertained as to the practical success of the scheme. It was thought too vast in its proportions to be car ried out by men who, like Jacob Grimm and his brother, had other pressing business avo cations to press their time, and the appear ance of the first part of it in print was some thing of a surprise to the skeptical. In lS."t, however, a whole volume was completed and published; in 18C0 a second made its appear ance; in 18(12 a third Soon after this Jacob Grimm, the chief prompter and manager of the undertaking, died; he had been preceded a short time before by his brother, his insepa rable companion throughout almost the whole of life, but hnd labored on with undiminished energy till, while occupied with the word 'Frueht,' he too was called away. "Happily, the impetus given by these famous scholars did not die with them. Their under taking was carried on with vigor by contri butors they had enlisted in the task. Hilde brand of Leipsic, Wiegand of Giessen, and Moritz Heyne of Halle, have had the chief hand in it since. Professor Hildebrand is now busily occupied with the letter K. "No similar work had previously existed in the literature of any other nation.
