Boynton writes from San Francisco to the Cincinnati Gazette : What of the Chinese ? Much that is interesting and important. Titer are iu ronnd numbers one hundred thous and ot them in the Pncino states, and the new arrivals now average from fif teen hundred to two - thousand per month. Toey abound as laoorers along t he whole Una of the Central Pacific Railroad to Promontory Point, and over this distance have pushed oiT into tb towns as servants ana tradesmen, and into th mines wherever allowed income. They are spreading eastward slowly ; there are lew in Omaha, and John Chinaman, with bis round hat and pig tail co led under it or dangling bet eeu bis heels, his long- blue shtrt which he wears over his blue panta loons, will shortly be no cnnosity in the Mississippi Valley. He is on hia way in force to make his future Eastern employers a visit. Chinatown, as the quarter of the city il which the Celestials live is called, is certainly one ot the most interesting spots to visit iu California, There a.e about a dozen biock whose four sides swarm wi;h them, and a half dozen stree's for a distance of several squares are filled with their stores and shops. It is a live sreue. The Chinaman moves qnick, and the stream in the streets seeuis constant, though it is heaviest when those employed over the city pour out from i heir quarters to their places of employment io the morning, and return iu the flood tide at night.. Nearly all are dressed alike, in -long blue ovet shirts and pants. The round straw hat is, however, rapidly being abandoned lor the American felt, and ttie peculiar i-logs and shoes for our boots. The higher class of merchants wear a similar dress io style, of a dark and fine cioth. and the rank and station in shown by lh length and thickness of the cue. The ladies may be eiad to know that these citizens of the Flowery Kingdom brought with them the art of wearing most deceptive additions to tbeir hair so that co matter what the crop is the ladies can have waterfalls of any given size, and tbemenof stand ing, even ot any length. Through all these streets Homing red and yellow handbills, cover-d with columnsof their peculiar characters tell these multitudes of sales, and cheap goods, of letters snd new arrivals, ol theaters and places where laborers are - wanted. Kverv store has its Chinese sign, and the most of them an English one also. Cby L-ucg & Co. ate old merchants of wealth and standing ; so are Hip Yik and Hip Wo. They sell silks and ivorv goods, inlaid work, teas, Chinaware, table ware, groceries, cierars. and the countless other articles which are in- eluded in the name "curious." Their word or bond is good as gold among the bankers and merchants of the city. Hong Lung sells you cigars. Gem Lee, Hung Lee, Hip Ho and other firms with firailar names, make you cigars, mend boots or do jour washimr and ironing. Their market stalls abound in articles which Americans know little ab"ut. Dried fish, from an inch to two or thrpe in length, are brought from China in great numbers, many kinds of roots, a strong if not lragrant kind of butier, rice iu large quantities, severs 1 kinds of peas and beans, and a great variety of similar cheap food. Tbey use poi k in all lorms, and very- little ol the animal goes to waste. Iu all of these stores accounts are footed up with a counting frame, strung with par allel bars, upon which slide buttons of rosewood, g,d with this their book keepers outstrip our method of addi tion. The books are kept with a4rusb, and with a neatness which is surpris ing. The fact is, there is not such wide spread prejudice arraicst the Chinese as Eastern people have been led to believe existed iu California. The large major ity of respectnble people of both par ties consider their presence a blessing. The lower class of foreign laborers op pose their coming, and persecute them whenever opportunity occars. The Irish are their worst enemies, but Irish capitalists who employ labor are glad to obtain their services. Politicians, or rather the unscrupu lous demagogues among politicians. have caused most of the trouble. To secure the support of the most reckless and vicious portions of the populations, the, have framed unjust laws, and winked at outrages and abuses which are a disgrace to the State. A gainst all this John, by his skill, patience, exem plary conduct, industry, and moderate charges lor labor, is slowly dud steadi ly working his way. As the 8 tate refused them protection, they formed companies to aid, and, so fr as possible, to protect each other. There are now six of these iu San Francisco, each under the direction of Chinese merchants of wealth, culture and standing. The directions of these companies have a common place oi meeting, and their organization is com plete. These companies take entire charge of all paupers, and no Chinaman has as yet become a charge upon tne State. It is very easy to see what such help and encouragement will lead to in in creasing the new immigration. WHAT JOHlt CAN DO. California is blessed with gold, and rich soil, and charming climate. Its resources are beyond computation. Its best citizens speak of these, and then say lhat of all their blessings that of Chinese labor is one of the greatest. The whole business and commerce ot the State was languishing because of the scarcity of laborers. But lust in the time of greatest need . the relief came. Women were few in California, house servants could be fonud for the wealthiest alone. But John arrived, and though he knew nothing of Ameri can housekeeping or cooking, he learn ed both almost with a Bing e lesson. And taken as a class there aieno better house servants in the land to-day than these, if indeed there is any class so good. And they are equally as efficient as conks, chamber u.aids or nurses. Show them once or twice how to do anything - within the range of their ability, and in household matters it is a wide one, and be will continue to do the thing exactly as he was shown to the end of his days. But for John ihe Pacific Railroad would have been delayed three years. As an artist with shovel ordrill, wheel barrow and cart be has proved himself unsurpassed. He is temperate, has no rows, is not at home iu a riot, knows nothing of strkes, has few holidays, boards himself, cnoka his own food to his liking, does bin own washing, keeps bimelf scrupulously clian, is alwaxs respectful, contented and jovial. He Is ab-ve all other classes a most useful and pleHsant poison to build railroads with. And then he is good at almost every thing else where intelligent labor is re quited. The largest and nnest woolen mill on the coast, and in fact one whose work is not equaled elsewhere, employs Chmanieu alone. This company, af er making very heavy contracts, were subjected to the lest of h genorsl strike among meir white workmen. Toyield to tne ueuiauus was to lose largely, r ?! - (r work was to be mined. In tbia strait they decided to try Chinese. Enough were selected to attend all the mach'ne- rv. and in a few days the mill was ran ninr again np to Its full capacity, and Droducingita best quality of goods. And here the most improved machinery known in such establishments Is in use. They do all the work in the most ex tensive shot tower in the West. Tbey make an nne articles ot gentlemen i wear where the neatest machine sew ing is reqa'red. They bind books and make books ; they set type without knowing tb language; they carve with great skill pin snort, they are learning all trades rapidly, and becom iog versed in tbe-mystenesof all heavy uitti'mnfry, ami tictiuwo anu latjor sav ing machines as well ; and in all their Movements are abont as accurate and regular as the machinery itself. Most ol the beautiful photographs and stereo scopic views which the Central Pacific Kiimaa Company has sent throughout the East are printed finished and mounted by Chiuameo. There is no unskilled labor which they can not perform rapidly and well. There is no machinery which they can not speedily learn to attend as accurate ly as if they themselves were a pari ot it, ana wages are as one to two and a- half and three. It is not difficult to understand the advantages thus offer ed. . XHE1B EDUCATION ASB; T-AGA3JISM. Ninety-eight per ceni. of those who come here cun read and write their own language. Mo-tof th?mare rapid iu figuring, ineir cnuaren learn our language quickly ; the. parents with d faculty, though they soon manage to acquire a stock of words and sen tenceo whicn answer -ther purposes. They show great anxiety to send their children to school, where English is taught, though as yet few facilities have been given tbetn, for while they pay lull school taxes, tbey have as yet been furnished but one school house for forty pupils. - As a class, there is none so law abiding not even the Americans, and none more honest. Tuey payall taxes to tbe-Governmeoi cheerfully and carefully, and the school tax ot tne state, though they have very small returns lor the latter. Tne State imposes a tax of five dol lars per capita upon all-tJiat land, and some special licences such as the mi ners' tax of three dollars, the nrst ol which the State has no right to collect. There are disgraces of this kind which demagogues have brought upon Cali- loriiia. but which the repecaolecla-ises do ootsanction, and will reciiiy before I long. ine visit of so many congress- men to the West this snmmer cau not fail to lead to the much needed legisla tion of these people. They seem to have no desire to vote, and for the pres- eut it is doubtless better that tbev should not. They only -ask through! their leading men for a standing in tbe courts as witnesses, and equal protec tion from the law. This tbev have a right to claim, and will ere long se cure. They are idolators. This is the most difficult point in the jchole problem. Still, those who suppose 'hat American civilization can not stand against a few thousand or even a million Chinese, are borrowing mncn needless trouble. Contrary to the opinions of most, the Chinaman errects no idol as a God. He would no sooner do this than the Chris- tain. His faith ia this : God is good and kind, and so mereifal that He will under no circumstances do ns anything but good. But tbe Evil one hates us. and is ever watching an opportunity 'o injure anu destroy us ; wo mu-t concil iate him. And so Joss or Devil houses are erected, and incense is burned con stantly, and offerings made to concili ate tne Devil. Tbev believe in the sweet Influence of departed spirits, that the dead are constantly around them tor watch and guard and help. - They make offerings of fooo at their graves, not as It is said with the idea of feeding the dead, nut to show them that they are remember ed. Their name for God and for the influence which these departed exert is the same as that which expresses the soft waruwh atid efte-et rt -a Southern sun falling upon a slope, vbich ooks; toward tne tsuutn. - ,- - They send their dead home to burv tbem in the family line, ao that the chain of ancestry may becomplete, and the sweet Influences from the spirit would flow through tbe line uninter ruptedly. If tbe line is broken by an absent dead one, the influences are less regular, and tne wandering spirit is not at rest, and instead of watching to do good, desires to injure and -make trouble in return for the neglect oi his body. Three times a year onenngs are made to departed spirits, and a late Emperor has decreed that the (govern ment make offerings also three times a year to spirits at large, lhat is to the spirits of sttch as bjjve died iu battle or have been lost at sea and left un bur ied or not returned to the graves where the family line is laid. Tbis Emperor had lost some of his family at sea, and after much mourning over his broken line of buried ancestors he hit upon the remedy thus descriDea. There is ranch that Is beautiful and poetical in what they term their reli gion, and much that sbow a mind sus cep ible to religious truth. The mis sionary field is being brought to our very doors in California. The great so cieties of ihe country can not move too promptly in efforts to educate and chris tianize these pagans, Bkilled in all la bor and accomplished in a thousand ways, and whose coming will bless the country in many important respects. Tbe wave is setting in upon our shores stronglv, and Christain missionary ef fort should be immediately put forth to reclaim aud mould this new element in our wealth aud advancement. It is charged that those who" come hoard all their gold, and take it home, thus keeping much coin out of circula tion. This has been true. The reason is obvious. The courts extended no protection ; their testimony was worth less ; they could not enforce contracts ; sharpers were continually preying upon them, and so they were driven to trade with their own people, and board their gold. But under the encouragement which the better classes are giving them, all tbis is changing. Their merchants are erecting stores, and investing in real estate. The laborers are purchasing homes and sending for their wives. More and more of those who go home are returning, andmost of them with friends designing to stay. The atten tion of the great Chinese capitalists of the Empire is being turned to ourcoast and the bope'of many of our best busi ness men in San Francisco is, that they will shartly be induced to take bold of great enterprises. The coin of Ihe world has been pouring into China for generations. In Canton and Hong Kong there are many native depositors of live and six millions, and many Chinese companies wnich could furnish fifty and sixty millions to such mi en terprise as the Pacific Railrosd, or to steamship lines, if they could once be interested in tne matter. Chinese mer chants say these men wilt invest the moment they can have full protection ior ineir persons ana property uncter tbe laws. Such are the outlines of tbe Chinese problem, which before the nation has become fully aware that Chinese immi gration has begun in earnest is thrust upon it in all its greit proportions. ihiiiKingmen win turn tne r atten tion to it at once, ns one of the most important questions of the day. From the Lebanon Star. j HOW IT WAS DOSE, A friend at our elbow tuirgesls how it was that the Democratic retrenchment legislature managed to pay Flood and Layman, clerks of the Senate and House three times as many days as there were days in the vear. It was thus; Eight hours make" a days' work, and three eigbis are twenty-faur ; and hence, by multiplying each day by three, they get the number of days easily. Don't you see T The Democrats are thefiienda of the laboring man, you know, and Flood aud Layman are great laborers they do Ioib of dirty work for the parly. When a Roman Catholic is nomina ted for Governor, and the Roman Caibo lio organ of the State breaks out iu fresh denunicatiou and abuse of our common school system, It is idle to say that tbe Bcbool system ia not an issue. Friends of the system are compelled to detend and maintain it against assault, and to take care that no harm sbsll come to it through the election. Oin, to j Chronicle. A &77l rl ETf? IaT3 " -I LOCAL TAXES AUTHORIZED BY THE DEMOCRATIC GENERAl ASSEMBLY. Startling facts for Tax-Payers. Three quarters of the taxes paid by the people of the Stateof Obio are tbose which are levied for the county, town ship, city and other local purposes. For example, the levy for State purposes, in 1808 amounted to 53,907.472 50, and the levy for county and other local pur poses to ? 16,591 ,675 54, or over four times as much. From this it will be seen that the burden of taxation which most oppresses the people, and that which a Legislature earnestly bent up on retrenchment would by all means endeavor to reduce, is that growing out of the special legislation which crowds our statute books. The Democratic Legislature set out with such loud professions of "retrench ment and reform" that tbe people had reason to expect that something at least wonld be accomplished in this direction. Nevertheless, we now quote from the Ohio State Journal, it is no rash asser tion to any that no State Legislature from the foundation of the State gov ernment has ever authorized so fearful a burden of local taxation as tbe Fifty eigbt General Assembly. In this mat ter ihe Legislature seems to have used its power in a wholly reckless and ir responsible manner, as though it felt itself to be beyond tbe knowledge and the correction of the people in this pro vince. A profligate expenditure of this sort, however hard it might bear up on the locality which had to meet the tax, would be for tbe most part un known in other localities. Even the best informed could not know of the vast total of theseexpenditnres through- oat the State, without a careful and la borious examination or tne laws. Tbe Legislature seems to have taken it for granted that no such examination would be made lhat no one would be found to hold it to an accountability for its recklessness aod propesion in this matter. Vast as our proportion of di rect taxation is for the burdens entailed by the National Debt, it falls below the amount authorized by the Fifty-eighth General Assembly in a single term. Let us not be deceived in thit, matter by trliitering generalities. The reader should take op tbe Laws for 1868 and 1869, aod follow the details page by paga. We make no comment in gener al The reader most decide as to which expenditures are proper and judicious: LAWS OF 1868 LOANS AND LEVIES AU- THOBIZED. The record commences with page 9.

Is it wise, we ask the tax pay er, to choose such a time, to authorize local communities and municipalities to contract debts to an extent never before paralleled in the history of the State ? THE KXTRAORK1NABY LEGISLATION of the Fiftv-oighth General Assembly which has brought reproach upon our State wherever good laws are appre ciated, is a little too extensive to be properly treated within the limits of this document. We commend that branch of the subject to the public press for frequent and thorough expo, sition. AVe have shown ! 1. That the Fifty-eighth General As sembly has added more largely than any that ever existed, to the evils re sulting from changes and additions upon the statute book. 2. That it sat longer, at a higher per diem, and did worse work, than any other legislative body in the history of the State. 3. That it expended money profli gately on party favorites, and for un usual and extraordinary purposes. -4. That it authorized" local burdens almost without limit, and at a rate per cent, unprecedented in the history ol any State. And that itdid many other damaging and objectionaole things, to the detri ment of the prosperity of the State. All of which were done after riding into power on the cry of retrenchment and reform. Tax-payers, how do you like such re trenchment as this ? Do yon want tiro more years of it f MASITACTLRRG AN HE DONE CHEAPER WEST THAN EAST. AVe invite the attention of our Dela ware readers who are interested as we hope all are in enlarging the manu facturing business of this oily, to the fow- lowing communication which appears In the Sandusky Register. It is direct lyin point, and what is said of Sandusky is equally true of Delaware. Nkw Haven, Conn., July 16. Editor Sasdcbkt Keoihteb : If any of our Sandusky capitalists want to see tbe real, solid results of manulacturing both in building up cities and personal estate, I would be pleased to have them loilow our footsteps lrom Lake i!.rie io this city. In every city, village, or humlet on the route, you will hear the bum of machinery aud see what tbe in dustry of the Yankee Mechanic "Wi?l do aided by enterprising capitalists. Take Itocuester JNew lore, us n -example. Here is a city of 75,000 t etflabiiauts, built np entirely by Miaofiicturing, and any part of the work dune there can be done cheaper in Sandusky. There are Jour or nvetrMtnense concern making whipa; tw ri three making shoe lasts; agricultural implements art built; edge tools; -carpenter's tools; ma chine shops, reaptc works, and a great mauy other a.rtctes,all of which aresold in the rush. -Now, labor is twenty-five per cent, higher in Rochester than in Sandusky, because living is higher; soft coal ia wrtn two dollars per ton more man -wv.u us; timDer is at least one hundred per ceot higher, while la- oor isno Btece skiiitui, not as reliable as can be tvind in any trVtfti in the wesi the sizeof Sandusky." AVby fa It, now, that wat'sonot do thFj 8rt"la work with all the advantages cm "our side, and compete successfully viih eastern cou- cernst The only ressons I know of, B.nd tbo only real rza son there is, is the t.nuia ly ot our oRpitul. wehave nion sy in Sandusky, in the hands of men, 'tow, who, if 'nitsy would examine the wkole watte? of manufacturing, would ciadiy Mivest. The trouble is they don I know wnithing about It. Tbey are afra&!f Vbe competition of larger anil ol-der-esCablishments in the east. They wiM rather go into tneiumberor loan at twelve per cent. That's their busi ness. Iion't blametbem. All I want is to have them look lor themselves, see what has been done in other places, what we must do or go under. A prom inent manufacturer told me in Roches ter, and half a dozen bav told me the same thing here, that there was not a wealthy man in the city but had hall bis capital invested in manufacturing of some kind, and every one-had more than doubled his money every five years. The manufacturer of 'the "Cay uga Chief" reaper at Auburn told me ue bought bis lumber at Sandusky and beyond there, and sold tbree-foorths ol his goods in Ohio. He couldn't see why all such work was not 'done west. He built bis sbops in ArTbnrn because he lived there, but he believed he could put up his work ha Sandusky cheaper by fifteen per cent tham be could where he was. Here in New Haven there was nothing 'tloue tout manufacturing. There are no less than sixty-five wagon shops whicb "employ from fifty to five hundred men each. These shops pro cure their supplies almost entirely io Ohio, and sell their goods in tho West. Abrurfh company has just started here wiich paid $80,000 for a patent fo a little machine.
