Fit, to the Allentown (Pa.) Seyfttar we leani .bat on Tuesday morning, about I o'clock, tire broke ut hi the Allentown I ron works, situated in the Sixth ward, and superintended by Samuel Lewis, Ksq.

Upon whom then w ill fall the responsi bility of directing I he policy of the state of Virginia? This is a question of tre mendous inqiortance, that should arrest the attention of every true son of the commonwealth, w hether native or adop ted. The answer is, that the steering ol theship will I in the hands of Mm more intelligent of her crew; these must direct t lie rent who know not their right hand from their left. The above is the pathetic lament of the Norfolk Jotinui, in view of the coming re-admission of Virginia to the Cuion, which will lie accomplished in a few short weeks. Alas! for the good old State, the mother of Presi dents, and the land of Washington, Jepfkkson, Madison and Henry. "On whom," uslcs the Journal, "will rest the responsibility?" And the sorrowful answer is, that, to the tifty thousand white adults who cannot read, is now to be added eighty thou sand others still more ignorant, and that tm of a credulous race who may be easily led by the base and design ing. "The steering of the ship" should be " in the hands of the more intelligent of her crew." But will it '.' That is the question, which, for good or evil, is now to lie decided. It ha- been accepted as an axiom that repre sentative bodies are no better than the constituents they represent. What then is to be the character of the legis lators and other officials of Virginia, if they are to have the virtue and intel ligence which the electors of Virginia possess, diluted by this fifty thousand. and by this second dilution of eighty thousand m. ire f TbeSMe has paid dearly tor peace,, if that peace will not bring prosperity and intelligent gov eminent. The larger the proportion of ignorant voters, the greater the dif ficulty, and the more fatal the uncer tainty of obtaining good officers What is to be expected of a voting imputation of two hundred and tifty thousand, tilty thousand of whom cannot read, and eighty thousand more of whom neither read nor taxes? Will the gentlenieu of tin State descend to the hustings, or will sharpers harvest the votes ami the spoils? We think that Virginia, and, if universal suffrage prevails, Tennes see also, will be good States for rogues to emigrate to, where they can " cut it fat." But the Journal thinks the whites, because of their superior intelligence, will rule the State. That is a good reason why it should be so but is it good logic? On the contrary, Is it not true that the control of our cities, our towns and counties, is in the hands of preponderating numbers alone, and that as a rule the religious, the virtu ous, the educated ami intelligent, go in the minority, to the wall. Ifvir tue anil intelligence in the jieople is the very substratum ami only hojie of republican institutions, are we to ex pect the existence ol such institutions when controlled hy equally ignorant .i;;J vicious majorities, to comport with the common welfare? Happy, indeed, will be Virginia, if it shall so turn out that the " more intelligent shall control " the rest, who know not th.-ir i-isrht hand from their left." liut it would be safer and better for the State if such a necessity for control were omitted. In Tennessee, where wo are free to legislate as to this mat ter, and where we have sad experience of the evil of negro suffrage, w trust the millstone of that eighty thousand ignoramuses will h taken from our necks, as soon as possible, by the re quisite leoai ani constitutional means, and not otherwise.

WADDING EH, of Hanover, Uerinan.v. The report by ocean telegraph that an alliance has been formed hy Ehg land, Austria and Fiance to protect Spain is not at all confirmed by the following paragraph of the London fm of the 14th on the Cuban ques tion. The Times says : If the American negotiations for the cession of Tuba have failed, it must l.e because the sum tendered was deemed insufficient, or the Washington GMWn meat dreads the opposition of those who feel confident thai t'uba must fall iuto the bands of the I'nitod States, and deem it folly to incur liability. The Spanish government has been admonished to put an end to the insurrection, or give up the island on any terms. If those eircuni stanees have prompted the Madrid gov ernment to play its last card for the An tilles, and stake all on it, il cannot be con gratulated on its resolution. The subju gation of Cuba cannot b achieved by sol di) rs, nor will it reault from a series of victories. Troops mav bold th" seaports, but the inland regions will bo against them. Armed columns may traverse the island, but can nowhere establish a per manent fooling. Wilh the exception of a few traders, Spain has no friends in the island. I'rim and Serrano have often told the Cortes that tbe loss of Cuba is merely a question of time. For four months they have been devising the most advati- lis. It is to be hoped til l'. vv isdoui and eonsi-i sleney will ciiab.. the i to sec that it ia eood to be rid of tin- islaiei on any terms, ami cause them to consider. before wasting men and money which i hey e.iimot spare, in the furtherance of an enterprise which will never yield I hundredth pari, ol ariyH ii Baa atreaaj ir reparably cost. If a man lias something to s.iy. the best way lie can find to say it is with a few appropriate words. An unnee esaary word is so much taken from the force of his utterance. S if a man desires that what he does say should be well received, he will use such word- asareinonVnsiveto those whom he addresses, or' such as are usually esteemed modest and "polite." In either view, profane languajre is un wise, and not a whit more brave than it is polite. A true gentleman may run from the tlin of foul oaths, but he will not be intimidated by exclama tions, by which cowardice oiten bol sters itself upright. Fear not the swearer, whose courage, like that of the barking dog, exudes and vanishes with his breath. The man to iear, as well as the man who deserves respect, is the one whose words, as well as actions, are the calm dictate of his judgment and self-control. Is an article commenting on the subject of Chinese immigration to America, the London ZSmm of the 1st inst. has the following: Alone among the races of the world thev confront the Englishman, and pro duce as much work wilh less pay. Other laborers are often found to work for less wanes than tbe Knglish lauirer, but they prove in the end the dearer workmen to nmnlnr because of the insufficiency of what they turn out. The Chinaman in l in'e raiure of employment overcomes this difficuity, and shows a balance in his own favor, ami the resentment oi ia manual lalsvrer he underbids is a neces sary conse.jupnco. "We cannot live," the Califnrnian in effect says, " upon that which sal islies Chinese," and. in MM an.-e of that self-preservation, which i the lirst law of nature, he proceeds to bent and stone him m the streels. We venture to think the conflict of race in California will not lie solved by iinnort duties or street outmces. Il would appear that in California itself t hr.. are i.ersons w lio (ind the presence of the Chinese useful and convenient. The California sections of the Pacific Railway w ere lead ' wilh their assistance, and while the work was I bus cheaply done, it bears comparison with the-section complete.! bv "navvies" from another world The same mail which o ils us of the vigorous steps taken in ( '.liiforuia, informs us that a Convention has been held at .Memphis to devise means of bringing Chinese into the cot ton sugar, corn and riiv fields of the South. The Mississippi and Missouri valleys, the mines of Colorado, Nevada and Arizona, the prairies still haunted by Indian tribes, may lie contested liotwcen Chinese and American iinniiitrunts. Il is impossible to suppose that the Chinese can lie kept out, and speculation may be better employed in contemplating thf functions thr-V may hereafter dbeharic in the wonderful poliey into which the States are destined to grow. Inheriting a civilization more ancient and economic, methods more perfect than the European san boast, but destitute of that strength and toughness of moral fibre which support- author!! v, the Chinese may be 1 coined a- assist ants in colonization : they need noi be feared as tbe dominating mce of the future. In relation to the character of Chi nese labor, S. II. Uit.mork writes as follows to the Galveston AVff.i: liuring the years lst7-ts I had two hun dred and lift v Chinese laborers in myeni pi. v on a sugar plantation '" th" Island or Cuba. They ama frofn the ort oi moy. under a coiiiract to work efcrhi veaisi at four dollars per month, payable annually. On ihe same plantation were KM native African and :MN) nagroes, natives of the Island. The Chinese vv ere remark ably do.-ile, industrious and Intelligent' all could read and write their language rlnentlv. and from their peculiar tact and dexterity would perform ahont double the amount ol the lanoc or tne egrnea, ami with much less apparent effort. lien once shown bow their w ork is lo be done the-,- require but little overseeing. They are all botanists to the extent of knowing enough of the merits of every species of vegetation to cook it into savory dishes. They will poll up the common grasses and pick the leav es from forest trees torchoiec dishes. Their rations were jerked beef and corn meal, but they always bad more or less vegetable dishes from the fields and forests, and understand the art of taking the host of everything better than any people that I have seen. My experience with them lasted nearly three years, and satisfied me that one Chi li mi in was worth at leasl two negroes for any kind of labor. In !.:! 1 was on the island of Cuba, when some of my friends were paving a premium of j7"0 per head for Chinese labor contracts, besides pay ing then their regular wages, proving in the most positive manner that after ten ream' experience thev were valued at BioM than double the ' price of negroes, ul.o were uei otlb slmHI lor ihe term of their natural life. e COMMUNICATIONS.

Either it is an enter prise that b frought with pleasure, magnirtcenee and without doubt will befonclusive of great heaeflbi to every department of commercial, ariciil tural and manufacturing points. It is an enterprise which will lay the foundation for a greater intercoms,, with the Western f.Uttes, by hringino; the people together, and in the nietin Uroe bringing their productions to a great and a profitable market.

What we have done in oilier cities ami slabs we can do here 'all we need is the willingness anil kind co-operation Of the citizens of Memphis, and if so this proposed Exhibition will become a Sxed fact.

Looking at this argument in general, from an American or Republican standpoint, it would seem to bodesigned to excite our derision rather than our approba tion. The very essence or basis ot American politics i- that the Govern ment was designed and created for the heneiit of the eople. It matters not by what sgrstei i of suffrage this great end may be worked out, it is our theory, and has been our practice until evil days fell son the it 'public, on the contrary, the Enrepeaa sys- ketrj has been that the people were liorn for the benefit of the government and the noMea, it absorbed and at tractinl everything to itselt and within its control the press, education, the telegraph. Here private enterprise and associated effort effected the great ends of the publi ! welfare. There the seal and stamp of (Iovernment despotism was seen in every depart ment of industry and effort. What people have over achieved more to el evate man and ineMtse his comfort-, his progress and his knowledge in a period less than a century, than the people of the I'nited Stales'.' In Europe the traveler is permitted to gaze upon magnificent and costly aehiov- aneaflH of civilization. He passes from one wonder to another, on til the mfend is NwiMered with the miracles presented to him. He sees art -galleries, cathedrals, castles, pala ces, tahries and monuments, which lill him with awe, or move him with de light. All is grand and CaUeaaal but one object. Tbe masses of mankind alone "are dwarfed. They live in Wretched hoveis, eat coarse food, and wear the scantiest clothing. They la bor wearily ten to twelve hours :i day togahaa Meager livelihood, with no hope ever to better their condition. Philosophers and political economists write folios of lean ed treatises upon Ihe probhml ot ameliorating the con dition of the laboring masses, without even touching iiMn the true cause of their WTetcheuneae, which is that the end, aim and continual effort of a powerful Qoverwa -nt is and has been lor centuries, to upon them the burdens, in order that the ruling castes and classes might enjoy the benefits of the system. Whatever ad advanees may have lieen made in England, France" and Hnissia, the pendulum of inexorable despotism has. contin ually oscillated back to "this lMiint. with the certainty of a physical law.

Descending from groat principles to pauiculars, it may safely he affirmed that, as the telegraph was invented, and achieved ii- arst nwcesaes in the United Steles, so it has continued to maintain its superiority over all other countries en the globe, ha the extent of its ramifications, the numlsT of people whom il serves, the amount of information famished, the prompti tude in the delivery of messages, and the cheapness of UHtartC In review ing this proposition we must 'not lose sight of the American idea of the greatest g. oil to the greatest number, :is centra iist'mgui-lied from the Euro pean tiriiicinle of caste or class legisla tion Had yoverunient.

Ihe La Crosse (Wis.) leader stiys: We ar'. through the courtesy of Capt. Dan Webster, of this city, iu aanaea sionofa letter relating to the Stowe Byron matter, which we are permit ted to give to the public. The writer's full name is Paul Jane's Lind bero. He is a Swiss by birth, and was for the last three years of Lord Byron's life with him in Italy. W hile with him he kept a record of all he saw and knew of Byron, and has In his possession at the present time all his manuscripts. He is so iMadlast a friend to Capt. Webster Tit he has promised to send the same "WS him. To those who nave reao Mrs. Stowe's famoas article, this letter will l'particularly interesting, us the ?)" of it knew probably more of the irreat characters he names man ai- : .uisjany person on this continent. Srj-Vurc promised the sight and peru- -i of the manuscript nook on its arri val. Wp give the leiter at present without note or comment. Those who have a taste for " looking up this -:i-i" as the lawyers would say, will eagerly read this letter. Those who have not, will remember that we con duct a nrtr paper, and not condemn us for its publication: Mtf.WACKKK, Septemlier 'J. Copt. We&ster: I leave with your brother-in-law, in this city, for you, the manuscript book of which I spoke to you when we last met, and concern ing which I have written to you ea often. You will find in that manu script much of what you have read in several of the newspapers, where Mrs. stowe s masterpiece ot Heart ana gen ius is served up in the Byronic scan dal. Can it be possible that any man, or annexed woman, with senses a hair breadth above those of a beast, can read the woman's malignant aud alto gether unwarrantable, uncalled-for libel against the defenseless dead, and the nameless insult and heart-breaking assault on several highly respecta ble, yet loving descendants of Ijer vic tims'.' 1 hope not. It Ls next to im possible, I believe, to discern which one of these three women to must een sure pity would perhaps be the bet ter word Mrs. Byron, Mrs. Stowe, or Mrs. t luiccioli Byron, for tnis most s-auiialoas oflspringof the press of the present, presented in such a respecta ble periodical. Would charity lie too ungenerously imposed upon if Bated to pronounce Lady Byron and Mrs. Stoweat ditfer ent times as beings under a gentle in fluence of incurable insanity, instead of attributing that enviable state of mind to their now defenseless victims? (Inly the blackest, the lowest im aginable cowards will war vfilh the defenseless dead; and these warriors now in question, warriors in petticoats but differently armed, they are certainly no admirers of the ancient sage who said, J)e mortals niffil, nisi bene! If there is no delusion, general or par tial, and there is no willingness or ca pacity to distinguish between (npiral ly?) right or wrong, these women may still lack, by reason ot some frightful disease, the power of self-control. The suppositjou which would acknowledge f his monomania of these two ladies aforesaid, or of all the three in question, perhaps, is danger ous in its relation; inasmuch as it was habitual with one of them at least, and has eviriceij itself iu the other two in more than one single Instance. Lady Ouiccioli is as incapable of knowingly telling a falsehood as a rose-bud would M to committing a burglary, for she was always a slave to conscience, and a woman of many virtues and few ideas. Iady Mill bank! e) Byron was said by the great majority of her aeiiualn unices (Fletch er excepted) to have been a most ex cellent but eminently disagreeable woman a combination of qualities by no means uncommon, in spite of ail that Mrs. Stowe tells us of her in carnation of purity, innocence, for bearance, and "unpardonable" for giveness. Can there well be exhibited a more conclusive evidence of incura ble insanity than First to aftirm that this so enormously abased, injured, patient, and forgiving wife. Lady Q. Q. N. Byron, nee Millbank(e) loved her monster of a husband with such Infatuation, and with such platonic purity and disinterest edness since their conjugal reconcilia tion was totally impossible; that she took to her own bosom a child an offspring ol a crime so hideous that it beggars almost a name, and has its parallel only in tho history of Papal sanctity and Apostolic license to for give arid condemn ud libitum and af terwards, for hail" a century or there about kept that terrible secret invio latehiddenwhile it slowly pene trated the very center throb of the heart; and, secondly, to insinuate, and to try to force the world to be lieve, "that this very same lady a paragon of human perfection, alter a lap-e of years, and since p-trti.-s n, nearly concerned were lanl beneath the sod and unable to defend them selves from such infamous and name less uccu-ation of a criaie from which ;ven the most heartless arid brass- faced calumniator would shrink ieiek n horror from giving ptdilicity hould, on the v erge of her grave, on a sudden commit this terrible sernt to the t nder care of Mrs. Stowe, in order to regale, in due time, the pu!- lic of the present age of pretension to social as well as to moral refine ment, with such a tit-bit of a " lite rarv monstrum horreiutum imjens, cm 'uiuen wlernttuiii .' " And '( Ifino.' ft is well for Mrs. stowe that Sir. I hn Cam HobhouseU no not know his subsequent name as " Ionl, y is now no more. Leigh Hunt, M.tik Lewis, Hogg, and Tom Moore, an? also dead. If any of these were now living, aud had a chance of reading Mr. Stowe's ma - terpiei-e ot chanty, in the papers, tb literary world would certainly rerjp shortly behold in print a " New 'i ion of Judgment," in a true Byronian key; but it is doubtful that the sub lime authoress would find herentrano into heaven as unobstructed the British king, otherwise fa as did known to fame. She might encounter, inside, the spirit of him whose name she has piously tried to add an addi tional infamy, peculiar to herself, by her uncharitable, Medusa like, late literary production.

"Yes," -ays Lady Ida Lovelace, point ing to the church in view, "I wish to bo buried there and not where my mother can reach me! li! I know that I am the most wronged amongst women! And who has pMte d my innocent childhood, my orphnnahip as it were; and the whole vigorou. manhood of my illustrious, poor, heart-broken fat her. whom I -aw ouiy when a sightless habe, whose name, or the appellation 'father' I u.i-, from my earliest infancy, forbidden to utter, even in my prayers'.' lint I know him now! oh! bury me at his side! and the union of our bodlw in the grave shall be the enibiefn : the union ol our pint- in me oosom 01 the Kterna!!

(Might she not have added the same confes sion as to her lielief in h"r mother's sanity?) "But," she continued, "I never had the happiness of being present to that, the noblest, most gen erous, truest, and most loving hMli that ever beat in the bosom of man." This might, perhaps, seem aOMfMPhal hvperboiica!. but the event took place nevertheless, and Col. Wildman was known to be prodigal of wont-:.

Mo ire remonstrated, ami Lady H. committed her manuscript to the Haines, but she did not tell him that her sister, Mrs. Home Purvis, bad also made a eopy. In fact several people had been llfev ed the like opportunity, and it is h ird to believe that out of at least tenor twelve persons only three, and there women, had tuKen the trouble of transcribing. From the quality ol "copy" which I have seen land oth ers were lyor in the way of tailing across it than myself), I surmise that at least half a dozen copies were made, and that live of these are yet in exist ence. Some particular transactions sueiia.. the mari i.ige and s paration were copied separately: but I think there cannot lc less than five full copies yet to be found." OLD HICKORY. Reminiscences of Gen.

The news spread like wild-fire over every portion of the United States, and various were the comments made by all parties upon the fortunately tmsnccessful attempt upou the life of the head of the na tion. Among others which tue wri ter of this heard was the remark. made in a country pos-tottice when the news arrived, and tne potitical friends ot Gen.

A friend of the writer, an artist who painted one of the :-t. if not the last lrtmito; ffen.

A- the old man was prone to l.e.ome drowsy and unconsciously drop into a do.cduringthe protracted sittings, which were all held at the Hermitage, i; was the custom of the artist to engage him in some exciting conversation in onler to roa-e him. With this view, on one ixi-.tsion he asked: "General, I would like you to give me your opinion ol your political opponents, ir. Clay and Mr. Web ster.'" " Well, 'sir," was the prompt response, the' are both great men, very great men.

Progress. Few men, used as they are to labor saving machinery, reflect on the vast advance made through its means by the human race during the last cen tury and a half. One invention, in deed, may be said to have built up the tbreign commerce of the Cnited States, laid the foundation ot large man ufacturing towns in Kngland.and indi rectly created a -cctional strife which will cure itself by its own action that, is the Cotton C in. The planing machine, the mower, the tel and others, are reaj-er, the locomotive, nr machines. each and all.

But the progress which the use of the machines v.v have enumer ated has made is dow, compared with another tiie Ses' ing Machine. Con- 1 nected, as it is, with the comfort of families, anil a priceless luxury, both to the over-burdened mechanic's wife and the lady of fashion, it is becom ing as much a matter of nwessity as the gridiron or tea-kettle a piece 00 furniture, in feet, without which nf family can exist with comfort.

What Sleep WiM Cure. The cry for rest has always been 1 an lor than the cry for food. Not that it is more Important, but it Ls often harder to get. The U-t rest conies from sound sleep. Of two men or women otherwise equal, the one who lis ps the liest will be the miir-t moral, healthy and efficient. Sleep will do much to cure irrita bility of temper, peevishness, uneasi ness. It will restore to vigor an over worked brain. It will build up and make strong a weary Ixnly. It will do much to cure dyspepsia, particularly that variety known as nervous dys pepsia, it will relieve tne languor and prostration felt by consumptives. It will cure hypochondria. It will cure the blues. ltill cure the head ache. It will cure the heartache. It will cure neuralgia. It will cure a broken' -pint. It will cure sorrow. Indisd, we might make a long list of nervous maladies that sleep will cure. The cure of sleepli-sness, however, is not so easy, particularly in those who carry grave responsibilities. The habit of sleeping well is ana which, if broken up for any length of time is not easily regained. fb n a severe illness, treated by powerful drugs, so deranges the nervous system that sleep Ls never sweet after it. r, per haps, long continued watchfulness produces the same effect; or hard -tudv, or too little exercise of the mus cular system, or tea and whisky drink ing, and tobacis) using. To break up the habit are required: 1. A goisi clean led. 2. Sufficient exercise to produce weariness, and pleasant occupation. ;!. fJood air, and not too warm a room. 1. Freedom from too much care. 3. A clean stomach. H. A clean conscience. 7. Avoidance from stimulants and narcotiis. For those who are overworked, hag gard, nervous, who pass sleepless nights, we commend Ihe adoption of such habits as shall secure sleep, oth erwise life will be short, and what there is of it sadly imperfect.
