THE ANTI-SLA YEllY .'BUGLE
Miscellaneous. THE BRITISH EL DORADO. v: -Ton J ears ago w o little ttiouslit that we should I ,cerhavo to givo ""' readers tho picture of a! British El Dorado. Yet such a creation, in all its j oxtravnganco, we hiivo to exhibit this day in the! letter nt iiur correspondent nt Sydney. Here is' tho very thing mankind has implied iiud ile-j sired for ages the Ophir uf Sol imon, tho golden' lieeoe of Jason, the gulden apples of Atalantn, the I Pautolu and Tagus, the lamp of Aladdin o:.d the cap of Fortunatus, and the inexhaustible, idea ol tho thousand golden legend. Who would have thought that puverty-sttuck Australia, good for noth ing hut to take onr thieves off our hands, and supply us with a littlo tallow and wool, would ever send us twenty millions a year in pure gold? 'flint is the chango which has tome mer tho scene in four or live yearn. Austtiliais no longer a set of penal settlements, hut a fountain of wealth in its most condensed and moat coveted form. Kvery year it brings to tho surface, and actually sends to the mother country, 11 quantity of gold much more than ha ever lain in tho vaults of tho Bank id' Holland. A Fow years back thoro was a considerable school of financiers and economist, who thought the coun try ruined if a million or t oof the precious met t weutoutof it, and rcsusilated if they returned. Yt, in these days, nobody remark 011 the fact of half ft million or so having entered the per; of Lon don in one day from Australia. Raleigh promised his sovereign 11 gold mine, and led his hand of dis coverers against a Spanish fortress. Wo have turn-! ed a paradise into a purgatory of rogues, and na-! ture, in her caprice has mado it a land of gold, j We ought to be happy. We possess that which 1 men have always most wished for, and what w e, as j .a nation, are supposed to care for more than any-: tiling else in the world. Vet, strnngo to say, Aus- ' tralia, bad as wo made it, has becoino worse still ! by the discovery ol its riches; worse still, because really poorer still, more destitute of comforts und luxuries; more uncomfortable, neglected, slovenly, idle, pauperized, and vicious; a worse place for a man to live in, a more difficult place for a man to make his way in, unloss lie bo very stronir nnd heal thy, or very rnh, or very clever. Tho result was credible enough to those who thought about it, for, I lifter nil, that is the moral of Midas, and our1 school-books tell us that Spain was impoverished I uud mined hy tho gold she drew fn in the new I world. Yet, when nil men are toiling, plotting, pining, and dying for gold, it takes n great effort of! reason to 00 couvinccd tliat gold cau ever be a curse. Let it bo remembered that onr correspondent writes from Sydney, the oldest, nnd hitherto the moiit prosperous and most thoroughly organized j city in Australia. Ho describes the condition of a I province which, four or live years ago, had 110 oth-' er drawback than the convict populatior, year by! year becoming loss in proportion, nnd even less ' noxious and intolerable to the sound portion of so-1 ciety. Of this colony w o are now told that all regu lar industry is suspended. On a moderate eonipu-1 tation, half the sheep in the province are infected : with a disease which spoils both the llesh nnd the! wool, nnd, though an effectual cure has been dis covered, there are not hands to apply it, and no , one knows how far the pcstwiilgo. Hay is sold by weight at tho price of lump sugar. Vegetables . of all kiuds are a luxury confined to the rich. 'Wheat is very dear. Thoro is no milk to be got. The rising generation aro sickening and piuing on ; a diet of beef and brandy und water. The hospi- tab nre as ill off as tho nurseries, nnd nppcals are ; made to the charitable public to send a few vegeta bles for the patients wlu most require them.

" I contam as much misery as our own union work- houses. Ihere is to be a grand display of Austra- an produce at the forthcoming Paris Lxh.b but the Parisians are warned against concluding ; that Australia actual y docs what it can do. It ! tan do everything ; out the only thing it dues, in t finding gold, and that in a manner so clumsy and . rougn, mat tlie l-iiinese iinmigrnnis oi wnoui there are au immense number make their fortunes out of the refuse thrown aside by British diggers. This is worse even than anything thnt lias reached us of California. In that State there was no existing industry to bo destroyed, nc flocks and herds to be neglected, no gardens to be left uiiYilled. On tho contrary, so promptly have the Americans met the hiirh prices caused bv the dis- eoverv of old. that it is now said California would htand and flourish even if the gold should wholly fail. - But is it possible such a state of things nhould last as that described by our correspondent? At all events, we do our best to mend it, by giving it tho widest and fullest notoriety nt home. What 4ire our owu gardeners, and colliers, and carpent- ers, and masons, and blacksmiths, and all other artificers about, not to save theis money nnd go out to a place whero garden-stuff cannot be got for love or money, wheru coal is four or five times the price it is in London, where house room, and I thereloro building, is so costly tlrt shiploads fcoodsare left to rot rather than pay for their warehousing? lue only thing wanted is not extraordinary Btrcngth and skill, but simply the. power of abstaining lrom ardent spirits in a dry and tnrsty climate, it a man cannot do tins lie uuu uekuji Bijr inn...;, umu n nai uu me ciuu- iw ui iui ..., iu 4uoia mw wages, and the damp character ot the atmosphere, he may l.ope to prolong m aays even witn nn occasional extra potation. But m Australia strong drink poisou, and every man who goes out with this cra ving iq Ins blood only rushes to Ins (loom, llio laborer or artisan who cau command his appetite In this country may hope to be equally successful under somewhat more unfavorable circumstances, in Australia ; and if he goes there not to work in the diggings but to exercise bis ow n calling, he will reap the harvest of gold which thousands have toiled for in vain. There is no longer that selfish reason fur that advice that there used to be. It is no longer an object to reduce the population, aud got rid of the people anyhow, anywhere, l-.ngland at this muinont has not a man too many certain- )y not a good laborer or good workman too many But it is our duty to look to our colonics as well us. to ourselves, and confessedly they are much moro in want of bands than we aro, 1'hey contribute to our prosperity, they consume our manufactures, Jhey supply us w ith gold. They have, then, a f ifr uUim fj at leant a proportionate supply of la bor, ncd we trust that they will shortly have enough to tend their flocks and herds, to till their gardens, to build their bouses, make their roads, and, if need be, protcet tUeir titles from a stray Ilnssian cruiser. ; .

Knrly in the spring, tie8e industrious people being too much worn out , with toil, sickness, and destitution to proceed on their tedious journey opened farms and fenced larged fields from which they were soon rewarded with great abundance of grains nnd nnd produce whilst an hundred sturdy pioneers penetrated to the w ild mountain vales dud near tho great Salt in the country they named Deskhet. (The Bee or Boo Hive) some returning, whilst others remained to prepare for the wants of the coming multitudes. Ju tlie spring ot -JS mo w holo cavalcade of wagons and human life moved from this spot, the greatest portion young, forward to their new home, whilst others unable for want f trength returned across the river into Iowa, in the region of Council Blufi's, there to recruit their means for future emigration. The luxuriant foliage soon o'erspread the fields, gardens and streets of the place so lately identified with busy life, and for the first year a large amount of grain vegetables and vines were produced, much of which was gathered by thj Indiana or the citi zens on the Iowa side ; but, alas tor the deserted city! the prairie fire swept through and enveloped it in names, and laid it low in ashes, and now only a few slight vestiges remain to mark the spot. The grooves in the earth where their winter vege tables were suugly packed may still be seen, and also the wells that furnished the city with sweet crystal water. The enclosures of vast fields may still be traced, where industrious hands had reared walls of earth to secure their stores of grain. Thousands Mill visit this spot to note the relies of the euner.ng pioneers who first opened the country to tlie notice of those who have followed and now own the lands.

HAYTIEN POLITENESS. "It is due to the llaytiens of all colors and class es to say, that, so far as their external intercourse with each other is concerned, they are probably tho politest people in the world. It Is almost tho tirst thing that strikes nn American when he lands among them. It prevades all classes and condi tions. The huniblost peasants in thoir intercourse with each other, as well ns with thoso in ft higher sphere, present, in this respect, (in example which might he studi.'d with profit by my own country men of every rank. It is a very rare thing for a Haytien to pass a person in the street, whetlur an acquaintance or not, without saluting him; a woman is always saluted. No Haytien ever enters a shop, however humble, or asks a market woman, whosn wholo stock may not bo worth a single Span ish dollar, the price ol her bananas, without the j preliminary courtesy of a bow or somo courteous word. I "Nothing is moro common than for n driving man of buisnoss in New Yolk to thrust his head . into bis neighbor's counting room, nn old nequaint I nnce, too, pcvhnps, nnd nsk, abruptly I "What is flour to-dav V or, 'How aro bills on London ?' The person addressed, nothing surprised, responds ns abruptly, and parties scpcrn'.o with apparently ns littlo interest in each other ns two chips that cas ually meet each other for a moment in au eddy. Such manners would at once bo tabooed in Hati. No class would ((derate them. I remember some marked rebukes administered to acquaintances of mine who hail thoughtlessly overlooked these minor morals which illustrate this feature of the Haytien civilization. Ono of tho delinquents, who was a prominent merchant, went ono morning quite early, and in great haste, to a store, and abruptly asked the porter, who was swooping out, if the proprietor, calling him by his name, wus in ? The porter stopped sweeping, and looking up with i au air of mingled astonishment nnd anger, af ;ter n brief pause, broko forth in Creole: ,1'onr niini on mnntlr vonr M.

Ho called nt the residence of ono of his parishioners, and knocked.

"Wo are quite too indifferent, in the United States, about this matter, which, to lie sure, may be only skin djep, but yet serves almost as important a purpose in oursocial economy as the skin docs in our nmmal economy.

THK WEEKLY TRIBUNE commences its XlVth annual volume with the month of Septem bercommences it with a circnlation (115.000) larger than was ever before accorded to any gener al newspaper whatever. This circulation has been gradually nnd laboriously atnincd by concentra ting upon 111b IHlUtNh tho best efforts of mnnr editors and correspondents and by a greater liber ality ol outlay in cacti department than was prob ably ever beforo risked on nnyjoiin.nl. It has bceu attained, not by sailing smoothly in the cur rent of Opinion beforo the wind and basking in the smiles of majorities, but by an earnest, fearless devotion to Truth and Progress as above all parti san exigencies, nil t( tnpornry interests, all momen tary illusions of popularity and success. Ita thorough advocacy of Temperance nnd Liquor Pro. hibition, of Justice to tho despised and down-trodden, and of the equal nnd inalienable Rights of tho Human Race, irrespective of Sex or Creed or Color, havo from time to timo repelled many sun shine friends, whose prejudices or secminir inter ests were hereby contravened, but have combined to form a character which it will endeavor to maintain nnd assign it n positioD among journals which wo fej.d that it will be henceforth a success not to impair. The leading ideas to which THE TRIBUNE is devoted may bo brielly set forth as follows : 1. Fueeuom, to ao whatever is essentially right not alone for white Americans, or Anglo-Saxons, or Caucasians even not for one Race to determine whether they will not hold another Race in abjeot bondage but for every Race aud Nation, and every adult rational human being. This Freedom is rightfully absolute in the broad domain of Opin ion, and involves tho equal nnd imporativo right to Political Franchises : 2. Okoer, or the necessa ry right of the legally indicated majority to inter dict in the sphere of Action nil practices which it deems demoralizing, theretoro prcjuUtcal to the commonweal: 3 Bexkfjcence, or the wisdom and. policy of cm ploying ihe resources und credit of the community to accomplish works of general nnd unquestioned utility to w hich individual means aro inadequate or which, though eminently conductive to the public good, do not promise to re-imburse by their direct income the outlay required for their construction: 4. Indi'striai. Development, as the corner-stone of a true and benignant National Pol icy, counting the naturalization of a new nnd val uable art or product of the soil as more important than the acquisition of afresh province or island, and equally within the legitimate sjihoro of Nation al effort : 5. Peace, as n vital condition of true Progress, to be cherished by the most anxious, as siduous study to proffer as readily ns we nro prone to require redress for every wrong, nnd never to be surrendered except nt the call of endangered Liberty. Such nro tho chief landmarks by which THK TRIBUNE directs itseouree. But a small portion of THE TRIBURE is allot ted to what is currently distinguished ns light reading ; but Review s of Now Books of decided interests, with choice extracts illustrating their quality, are freely given, while the great body of our paper is devoted to a lucid nnd careful digest of tho News of the Day, with Editorial comments thereon. We havo reliable Correspondents in each quarter of the globe, and in nearly all tho principal cities of Europe and America, nnd their letters will aid our readers to a clearer understand ing of tho causes which nre now gradually con verting the Old World into ono gigantic arena for the death struggle of rcivnl interests, passions anil ambitions, THE TRIBUNE contains reliable reports of the Markets. Our Cattle Market reports alone are worth more than the price of the paper to those who are engaged in raising nnd selling Cattle. No paper involving so great an expense as our Weekly nnd Semi-Weekly could be nforded at the price of thoso sheets except in connection with a Daily, nor could our Daily be sustained at its price without the aid of our Coantry editions. Largo as our circulation is, it would involve us in ruinous loss but for the receipts for Advertising. We believe that in THE TRIBUNE is realized the largest variety and oxtcnt of solid information con cerning tho events of the day wiiich has been or can bo combined with extreme cheapness ; and in that faith we commend it to the regard of the reading public. We offer no premiums for sub scribers, tempt none to take it by gambling pros pects of winning farms or mansions in a lotttery in w hich tickets are furnished to its patrons, em ploy no travelling agents to importune people into taking it, and waste none of our room for dunning our subscribers for pay.
