THE CHHESE IN CALlFOIITttA.
Gen. H. V. 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-

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

capitalists who employ labor are glad
to obtain their services.

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
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 ?! -
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
They do all the work in the most ex
tensive shot tower in the West. Tbey
make an nne articles ot gentlemen i

Kiimaa Company has sent throughout

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

difficult point in the jchole problem.
Still, those who suppose 'hat American

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

are erected, and incense is burned con

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

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

very doors in California. The great so

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.

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
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

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,

LOCAL TAXES AUTHORIZED BY
THE DEMOCRATIC GENERAl
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:

The general law prescribing the rate
of taxation for county purposes an

It will be noted that the obligations

bear rates of interest ranging from

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

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;

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. Tbe rich men of Ihe
city wganized the company without
knowing anything practically aboul
tbe busiuess, but even now, before they
hav started, tbe slock 'is wori'h more
than par. People know It will be a suc
cess. Money will do anything shccopb
fully. We've got tbe brains in Sandus
ky, we also want money.
Can thesepeople bring iron from Lake
Superior and make it into a thousand

A manufacturer of a staple article re
marked to me to-day that it he could
not net forty per cent, on his goods he
would close up his shop. Forty per
cent is a good deal. We will be satis
fied with twenty percent, less.
AVe think in Sandusky that wo area
good ways from iron and coal. New
Haven people bring tlroiT iron from
Lake Superior, about two tlionsind
miles; their coal from Pennsylvania,
and their limber from Ohio and Michi
