Hut poliiical crimes have their degrees, and so also have their ro i ihutioiis. There ore four grades of punish-jM-nt in Liberia : Vr, Residence in a city. Second, Service in a Siberian Battalion. Third, Colonization. Fourth, Public tabor in other words, work in the mine. There is olso a fifth grade, which is howe ver, but h gieutcr degree of the Ibtirth, Pris oners In company. Whoever is sentenced to a residence in a city retains his right as a noble limn. Ileciiu correspond with his friends, although natu rally the whole correspondence passes thro' jho'linnds of the Mayor of tlio city, and is very limited in its scope. Tho prisoner inust not go beyond the city limits, hut with in thctn hu (nay employ his time as he w ill, pud is not constrained to labor. Whoever is appointed to a battulinn linn the same privi lege f correspondence under the same con ditions. Tlio political colonics tako their nnmo from tho fact that they wero formerly only allowed to live in villages. They ore depri ved of nobility, and in order of rank they ptand lower than tho Russian boors. Jus tice ccuscj for them, and unyliody may insult and mnltrcat them without danger horn the law. 'et they belong still to the living, and (nay ulso correspond with their friends. At present the colonists mostly live in tho city, ure not forced to work, and have no other superintendence than tlint of t lie ordinal)' police. Those who are condemned to a living death in the bowels of tho earth, there to perish, or uller an endurance of sutlering to iiccomc Colonists, ore no more to he ranked with human beings hut with beasts of bur den, with tools and machines. All human intercourse bus ceased for them ; they are buried alive and are entirely beyond the law. The Companion Prisoners aro compelled to the most loathsome labor in tho forts und Iirisuns, always wear ennuis unu nave uiu leud hull-shaved. This class is considered the lowest of ull. Russian social rank ad mits nothing lower. It is a great error to despise the position of the Russian serfs. In the eves of the prisoners they have great importance. csncciullv theserfsof tho crown. It would ho lonir and weary woik for the condemned to climb to the lights and impor tance even of this class. Tne manner in which the prisoners reach their appointed place of punishment depends iiiuinlv tmoii the verdict und much upon the humor ot the Judges. As fur us 'lobolisk (lie Uansport generally goes by post, and with some few short pauses at night for rest.

The population ol Liberia is divided into three classes peusants of the crown, traders, und oflicials of every kind. The peasant owns no muster and is free from forced labor. With u little gill to the Czar ho rinds every thing easy.

II ho does not surpass 1 1 10 Jew in cunning, lio dons nut yield to liiin. This is shown in tlio provorb " Where a Russiun trader settles, a Jew tins no chance." Among tlio traders must be reckoned tlio Russian )r"n-Rt", for they are nicrchnnts, too, nnd trndo in objects of religious devotion. Tlie priest advises the sick Siberian peasant Alio mi, cat nil. m uiv Bii.n kiuu Q (e y. M for (. a)( cunf. fvn lim .f,,, the plicoof tlio visit. It deHnds UKn the amount, whether he shnll hnyo a large or small image, shall come to the patient s Ik ami wnciner ii shall come to tlie patient's hoitso on loot or iu a carriage. This last style of visit, as costing much more, is held to he much more etlicacious in its results to the invalid. The priest accompanies tho image to the house attended by a retinue of pcoplo apparelled according to the cxtruvngimce of the cxM)tise. Not only does this profanity ohtuin in Sibe ria, hut also throughout Russia. When a Siberian dies, the Priest issues a certificate for him, which, of course, must he paid. This certificate the corpse liears iu his hand to open the gates of heaven, and the heavenly police, who it seems, ere as severely disciplined as on earth, iermit him to I kiss. The Emperor, us head of the Church, is obliged to sanction such hlnsnlio iiiv. and tho Government takes no core to stop the practices or ruise the pcoplo out of such darkness. The faults which characterise the peasant and trader, belong also to the oflicial, only ho must bo yet more sly and skillful, for ho wears tlio imperial gruce iu his hutloii-noie But just Ihere is the (.'round of his brutality thut tho Government knows constantly his conduct, and the severer he is the (aster lie rises. Liquor nnd curds sweeten tho fatigues of labor ; he gambles, however not lor amuse ment lint lor gain. J lie oflicial invites a so lect party of his prisoners to a gntno of Bos ton, knowing, perfectly well, that ho is to bo the wiuner; fur wo to tho thoughtless man w ho does not dcxtrotisly lose his money. Iln learns soon enough that tho game iu Liberia is played afleripiite other rules than elsewhere, und that if an imperial Russian oflicial honors a banished man by sitting with him at table, he should bo eager to pay roundly for that honor. Among the Silierian curiosities, however, I must not fail to mention the bell of Uglilsch, which was banished by Boris Godunow, the miserable bruther-in-luw of the w eak and in efficient Feodor 1st, becauso it opened its iron mouth and widly chmgeij the news of tlio murder of the Priuco Demetrius. It Jiangs iu Tobolsk, in the upper Church, but so near the croimd thut the passenccr can easily rend the reason and date of its banish ment etigruted upon it. The image of Jeho vah iu tlie sumo Church is striking, the face of w hich, several ells long, seems intended te impress the spectator with u sense of the size of God. But the most remarkable of all, in my judgment, is the Brodjnga or Vaga bond, a genuine national production, of which 1 must say sometlung. He is cither a native or a condemned of one of the two lower grades, who has some where committed an awful murder, and has then escaped with the booty hundreds of Kussiuti miles, in order to consumo it at lei sure. As tlie w inter approaches ami ins gold gives out, he betakes himself stealthily to a city iu which ho has never been, and and w here he is sure that no one knows him. There he announces himself to the locul mi thoiilics, but in a very peculiar manner, lie says, W illi seeming simplicity, tnnt ne is BioilinL'ii, that he docs not kuow whero be w us born, or what bis name is, nor where ho has hitherto lived, or beeti doing. Such a confession in pohtieul cases would lio quite a H1lll(.cllt to ,,. a vigorous application o j ie k10lt 0 r(,lVeBl, ,lie Im)ln0iy. yt tho ; ,.,.,, j, ow u- something less than Poli i tics at most, nothing more thun n murder' so Justico umsl have its way.

Ho remains what he was ; be comes more cunning, and even contrives to render his brand invisible. Shortly after our urrivnl in Siberia we wero visited by a mini apparently very res pectable. I lo -informed us that he wus ill, and having heurd thut one of us was a physi cian, he desired to nvuil himself of his ud vice. Hu visited us frequently, and was en thusiaclic for German literature.

Just at this time, the Mayor of the city which we hud been allotted for our resi bimself deuce, and iu which we hud made the ac- fur ipiuiiitunce of the Schiller entliusiust, died, ! ( and the Superintendent of Police, a great i lover of spirituous drink, assumed his time moment lions nii interim. It was not long before our to ropo-diuicing friend wus ou tho most inti l.iin he i male terms with Ihe new Mayor, and cradu- j ally concerned himself ill all the details imisiucsh. more man uueo viu icceiveu our letters through him in a quiet way. We j believed limbing less than tiiat the intriguer would gradually tip the Chief of I'olico out ol the saddle, and ruiso himself to tho dig' I is nity of Mayor. But the stars had otherwise deuieud. A Judge from Tobcl.h came up on an o tlie iid visit to the Muyor, who receiv ed him in the room where our friend was seated. The Judite looked at him sharply, recognized him ut once ns an old offender whom he had formerly tried and condemned for murder, and ordered him instantly to he arrested. It turned out that our crafty friend was a common soldier in the guards, who hud murdered his ollieur and broken open his chest, and had then become a Brodjngn. lie received on application tf tho knout and was sent to the mines, but it in very possible that he has smuggled himself out agum, and that he is to-day an oflicial somewhere. Murder, even in broad daylight is here very common. Women thus revenge them selves upon an unfaithful lover, or to got rid of a tedious husnnnti, or oi """" hinder the moternnl plan J he usual means is poison. When tho deed is done, the murderer goes to the Judge, shows him . .rn,.!.lB niece, (the customary fee iu such cases,)-"'"'0"'"' 'f "AS that he drank himself to death. 1 he official then turns the thing over to the Physician of the District, who inspects me uuuj, cup of ten in the house of mourning, slips the five rouble bit into his pocket and certi fies that tho deceased died of BMploxy, oc casioned by drinking. Tbe thing is then done. When children aro caused to die Ihero is a similar proceeding, only the final illness has naturally another numo. Into .,-l, .orietv fulls tho exile who has scarcely shed the shoes of childhood, and is not yet cnpablo of a political offense. Yet the ouv Inniiirv. bont upon advancing it self, finds something to do here. Games and jukes are adjudged to be conspiracies. They arrest the children, and by blows and threats, and promises, drive them into con at deeds of which they have never dreamed. What must become of children i,t.l..i utifll MlilllPtlCPH ? Anions tho inhabitants of Siberia ore also n I, reckoned thoso who ill the phraseology of the Government are called Kirgish, who have ostensibly submitted to tlio itussiua yoke. Tho warlike omotig them are howev er independent to this day, and like the Tachcrkish, are in pcrpetuul feud with tho Russians. The friendly, too, do not always deserve the name, for on n favorublo chance thev ioin with their froo brethren und full up on the Russian villages that lie nlong the border between tho two races, and lay every thing waste. Vet the Russians often win brilliant vic tories over these foes, and I hod some oppor tunities of observing the prisoners brought in. Far away a noise is heard, not shrill, lint a smothered roar as if from the interior of the earth. Then tho green Russian uniform appears, and uclimu nits a crown ot gray licuds Inilen with chains, and surrounded hy guard of soldiers. Momently it pauses, for the old men w ho con scarce curry along their own bodies, must constantly rest as they creep on with their heavy cliuius. These aro the hostages of tho Kirgish, and those who conduct them aro tor the most part Poles, who serve in the Siberiuu batulions Slaved Icndinff Slaves. a Whnt now docs lliissin with all these people; why does sho lead them into enp- ivity, ana wliut nualiy becomes ot nieiiir i hcse are unanswerable questions, biiouiu ley he ransomed ?

Thut onco over, he springsupon his horse and hunts whatever comes 10 nunu, as u ue regruuuu mo lost und hoped to muUo it up. The Kimisli is a genuine Nomad and pass- es liiu life iu tlio wild.

The Siberians ilriiiK it as a medicine, uudcoiiled thut it is good lor diseuscsof the henrt and even lor consumption, The Kirgish externally resemble the Tur- tars, and huve, like them, ugly features, little lowmgeycs, deeply set in ine ncuu, curling lack hair, und a pule complexion. But tho resemblance is only external. The Tartar has somewhat civilized himself, aud bus be- come a quiet, peace loving tradesman, wuuo tho Kirgish is still tho wild sou of the step- pes.

It mingles in bis dreams, it awakes with hun ut morning and Clint's to him until lie sinks, wearied, to sleep. From every book which he takes in his band, from the sheet ol paper to which ho would confide bis sorrow, sture at him tho frightful words. They mirror themselves upon his (enures, and seem to each of his fellow suf ferers stamped upou his brow. This high decree of suffering shows itself also in the faces of unlives, many of whom without knowing it, aro children of the unhappy whoso hones he under these eteruul snows.

Green .aumum lictman. The New Flax Movement. Tho recent improvements iu the preparation of tho flux fibre for textile fubrics hovo resulted in a suc- cess which is destined beyond all question, to produce great changes iu tho world. These improvements consist, 1. In a mode I separating the integument from the wood ol the stem. J. in a substitute lor the tedious, imperfect and unwholesome process of rot- I tmg, to get rid of the resinous and glutinous mutter which attaches to tho fibre, and !i. In a new mode ot splitting tho hbre by car- I bonic acid gas, so as to produce a wool, which may be manufactured either mixed with cotton, sheep's wool, or siik, or sepa rately. It has been practically demonstrated that this flux-wool or flux-cotton, of a fine ness and strciiL'th ot least equal to cotton, nml (-unable of buinc manufactured with cot- ton machinery, con be produced with profit iiioib cost inucii uciow mo prcsem uilu u, cotton, aud indeed below any minimum which the price ot cotton bus ever yet rcacheu. As flax may be grown more or less ubuu- dunlly in all the lice estates, as the process of preparation is simple and fully within the reucli ot our intelligent farmers, anu as no new machinery is requisite to manulucture it, and, moreover, as it is not yet too lute iu the present season to sow fiax, it is a matter of greut and iimncdiuto interest.
