Itaddsr What was trua in IN ia trebly true now. when the Jforlh has still creator weight and ;') -i: :,- -. . when the Radicala control every dejMWimaot of Uie Federal Government, ati.l a large majority of the State governments. The Soutn can foe relieved only by Northern Demo crxtis intervention, anf Northern Demo crats may claim to understand the public sentiment of this section Iwtter than our imprat-lit?ableeVutlirn brethren. Union they will permit us to act upon our bet ter knowledge of the situatieu. tbey must reaigu t lionawl rim to the tender mercies of Radical domination. We tell them, therefore, in all candor nnd plainness, that they only rivet their chains by further opposition to negro anf 1 rat''. 1 1 is not by negro voles that tbey are oppressed, but by White votes. It ia vain lor theui to inscribe on their politi cal i miners that they are a "white man's party." so long as their tyrants oorutiat of u t'oiiifresa elected by white Tolas. Negro sutlrage is the result of a white movement. The negroes did not ask for suffrage nil the white Radicals put it into their heads. The negroes would vote rightly enough if the white Radicals did not mislead and deceive them. The infamous reconstruc tion laws were passed by a Congress in which tbe South were not represented at all ; by a Congress, therefore, which was wholly elected by white constitu ents. It is not by negroes that the South ia oppressed, but by white men; Its most dangerous enemies are the white Radi cals of the Xortb ; and It la rilionloo to expect redress from a "white mu'a j an v" whan a party of white men are the authors of all the mischief, la .runt a negro? Is Uolden a negro? Was old Tnad Stevens a negro, or elected by negro constituents? II as not Kurope groaned for ages under priestly craft andltiru-ly t3rtnny, without a negro among i;I her oppressors? Are the Jtnglisb oppressors of Jrelaml negroes? Wtts Poland dis membered by negroes? Is Cuba held in subjection by a nation of negroes ? Un fortunately, a great part of human his tory consists of recitals of white tyranny and oppression; and nothing could be more preposterous than to expect justice from a "white man's party" on (he sole ground that its members are while. Waat the South needs to be rescied Irom is the domination ol the white Radi cal party in the North, which nas con trolled .Congress ,lor ten years. The Southern people would have DO ditUculty ln managing the negroes If they were .' I from white Radical interference, ex- r; -1 ttir-.ugh the Federal government. In North Carolina, it is Holden's mi lifts law, backed by Grant's bayonets, that keeps the Stale under Radical control, lu Georgia, the Radicals dare not hazard an election, for the Legislature is passing an act, under color of Congressional au thority, to continue the present Radical officers in authority beyond Uie term tor which they were chosen. It Is not negro voting, but outside Federal pressure that ii the unmanageable oleinent in Southern politics. The only means of relief is a ii-"- -1 revolution in the North, and Southern Democrats atmst concede that our opportunities for knowing the Nortb are belter than theirs. We ask (Southern Democrats to recog nize the fact that the North is the real battle-ground of political freedom for their section. Hare where the victory is to be won, if won at all, we have ne negro voters worth naming. It is a contest be tween two parties of white meu, and a erpetuatiou of the old quarrel, about the rights of the negro, only strengthens the enemy. The negro question is the only one on which Hip Radical party agree; it is their only principle of cohesion. The surest way to prevent the disintegration i i e nepuDiican, ,'i.rly is to keep that question afive and ejntinue tonTrcc ll ujion the country as apolitical is-ne. The Democrats can b- inea majority oulv by drawing off some Republican votes; but on the ncgru issue ,ae Republic;, party can easily hold its own, and so long as ft abstains iho control ol Congress there can lii" freedom In the SoaVh. If that sec tion wi'l bred the timely advice given in l be DenesTSlic Congressional add . and drop "dead issues," we can easily I'-voiutionize the lower branch of Con--r s iu this year's elections, now close at hand. We ask the Southern Democrats, fo'th for their sake and for onrs, to put no obstacle in the way ol our achieving ihi victory. When the Federal government ia once mors in Democratic namis, we are mite willing they should- manage their local politics in their own way, and will not then intrude upon them any unwel outiie advice. The above advice and suggestions of the World are judicious and friend ly, on the supposition that Uie North is to act Ibrever on its animosities and. prejudices. We suppose it true that " a perpetuation .of the old quarrel about the rights of the negro only strengthens the enemy," by counte nancing theasisehood that the South ern jKXjple would re-enslave or injure the negro if left unrestrained. And o any tiling we could do would have the same effect. For that rtason we do not discuss that subject, and for the same reason the matter has been piit at rout In Tennes see by the new State Constitution. But while the advice of the World is can-fully conformed to tho dictates of policy and prudence, we think it quite uncalled for by any facts wilhin our knowledge. It assumes that this Subject of negro suffrage is being agi tated to a not inconsiderable extent throughout the South, and that therefore a word of admonition if fcornewhat imperatively demanded. We think the World has been misled, and has taken an undue alarm for ay not iMvause the fact ia at all as repre. sented by it, but because a few papers in our midst hare produced the talse impression by misrepresentations of tl.-ir antagonists, having too oftenl not convictions, taut a busing motive At the bottom. The J i. i.i.K raute pr-.s of the South is not agitating the .suf frage question; but the question of Koou government ana a return to the Constitution alone, while it holds up 1. ,.r .v. . f iui-rs-iirii oi iiiHiiKinii icaiin-, I bVM, TIIK: SUNDAY MOINING APPEAL. made by concealing their hostility to negro snffrige they are fully committed, ami it ta too late to conceal it. We are not apprkwd that the Democracy of New York, Connecticut, Oregon Penn sylvania, New Jersey or Ohio have concealed or shrunk from maintaining their views on this subject. There is, in truth, bnt one mind as to this mat ter among whites in this whole coun try. Interested party hacks and fa natics may frrttend to believe in the wisdom of extension of tho suffrage, but only mental imbeciles really do so. What the .Radicals north will do on this subject depends not on what we think or do, but on the facility with which thoy may be able to find or manufacture false capital, which. If they had ccrnsVienops, their own Lxisoms would condemn. If we oppose t:ieir policy, good or bad, they will attribute it to a rebellious disposition. If we assent to it, they will demand more, and spit upon as as cowardly. Some have talked in the South of a "white man's party." But, what we fuire had, without urging and al most by magic, has been a Mack man7 party: In -nch a condition what is the use of words? Will not the birds if the" same feather flock together, and ail the effects consequent on the fact be-produced in any event? How is prudence, take care, caution and advice to stop that? Ilecent elections have shown Unit the leuiocr;'.tie stivigth lias rehitlvrly increase at tli North, not ithstandin the addi tion of negro voters' to the I Radical ranks, la the N rfh, therefore, it would seem there could bo no great Inwiocralic loss by a frank enuncia tioa of .Democratic views as to the negroes doming in to kill, with their duplic.itod ballots, the votes of -the whites. In the South, partii-s are known by their color. The white flock is all white; the black flock i all Mack not excepting that portion appearing white on the outside, which a disgrace to its black companions. We care not particularly who are the ' authors of the mischief," but rather how to jret rid of it. We do not see how it appeals from the fact that " a party of white men arc the authors of ail the miachiof,'' that our chains are to Is- riveted bynakjng some little show of offposiffon- to having any thing more than the handcuffs put on. Wc have submitted to force. But in no instance in which thus far we have submitted our opinions, our thoughts and our words, are we aware that we have been benefited by doing so. We can ehdure to pass under the yoke, but our souls will not chain- And we doubt the policy of whining and crouching, even if we must come to tho stake. The World does not make it apparent. 196V-,heiiid g.Mxl service for hi- w ersonal friend Em. Etheridge and ever since hs been in full affilia tion with the Democratic party.

Bartlett Court We account for this result from the fact that the Araltincie suptwrted the candidates for Supreme Court Judges, arm! refused its good will to the Demo cratic nominees for county offices. The A ralanche hoisted the names of Sueed, Freeman, Nicholson, Turney, Deadric'i and NelsOn, and swore they were Independent candidates. It re fused to support Ray, Stephens and Drown, because they were Democratic nominees. The result is, the nomi nees beat the Avalanche's Independ ents many votes. Verily, the Inde pendents are sweeping the country they arc irreeistable ; they are huge, and the good will of the A vatgnehe seems to be a kind of Uas tree that distills disease and death on every thing over which it casts its balclul shadow. The candidates for Supreme C'tfrt Judges must be men of great piipslarity, or they could ot have m-ide such a splendid run, loaded down with the heavy weight of the A ralatu ie' good will. We are soon to have another contest, and the can didates for Governor, Congrtsis. Sena tor and for Representatives, will no doubt pay our neighbor a handsome sum to oppose thorn. What injury did the candid.:teo for Supreme Court JuSgws cverdo the AvaUin-ht that it -hould reduce tlfcir majorities in Shel by county by support tng them '.' What favors have Drown and Ray and Ste phens done th.e AvaUmcht that it should be so prompt to aid in swelling their majority by opjsising them? Most of the candidates for Supreme, Court Judges are strangers to our peo ple, and it is due to them to say that they are good men, sound and u- -flinching Democrats, and should not liave suffered on account of the sup port of the A ralanche. . ,i OS our fourth page we publish te-' day a communication- signed "Shel by,1' announcing tho fact that Judge T. J. Latham, of the Bankrupt Court, will be an aspirant 4efore the Convention of the Kighth Congres sional DLstrict"for its nomination as a candidate to represent as in Congress. Without disparagement (as the phrase runs) of the claims of others, we can say, and say truly, Judge Latham is worthy and well qualified. Ho has t .erience as a citizen, hi wyer and jKilitician ; is shrewd, sagaciooB, in telligent and energtic, and as 'a simon-pure Union man, is eligible beyond any cavil by the dominant party in Congress. His life as a poli tician, 4ike that oi nearly all the men who now present themselves for the lesl positions In Tennessee, was spent in ante Oellutn times in support of the Whig party. True to his then con victions of the policy best calculated to insure the" greatest good to the great. est numtier," he battled successfully and well by the side of Ktheridw Neill S. Drown, Netherland and oth ers of the great leaders of a party that ever aspired to do good, only good, uq. mixed good for the country. He con, tinuod with the Whigs until, in I860 the epitaph of that party was written ; but with a remnant of it he sought to revive it- principles, and with them a love for the Union, which the silver grey faction of Whiggery in New York had cursed and desired to see divided. He was a Union man, pure and sim ple. He had no hate or enmity for those who differed with him: on tha contrary, be, from the, iirst, by pan - s"wcu ujon tne ljluooin administration a conciliatory course as best calculated to win over the gal lant people he loved, as one born and bred among them. Only as a lover of the Union did he sympathise wit the Government. He never ceased te discharge the obligations incum bent upon him as a friend nnd neigh bor. He deplored the war, and as it closed made ready and threw himself into the breach between the Radicals and hfs disfranchised countrymen, in the campaign, fur Uoveruor, ia Ve sens of Freedom wake to glory !

OTPT. It is probably yet fresh in the mem ory of most of the readers of the Ap peal, that ia July of last year a con vention was hald in' our city of Mem phis, for the purpose of considering the subject of introducing Chinese lalor into the South. It should also se remembefei that this paper com menced the agitation of the Subject, aided by the 0un, and by continually keeping it r the public, fliuilly succeudi d in getting this convention together; but what the convention did, Ikam satisfied no one knows. It adjourned, not a failure, however, lor there were earnest, determined men present who were bent on making the thing a success. Kuch were Colonel Thos. C. Flournoy and Major John IJ. Hall, represent ing the Arkansas River ValWfy Immitrration Company, and John Williams,, of New Orleans. By the former gentlemen I was solicited to go to China, work the matter up, and get hands if possible. So, upon the 22d of July, full of hope and in good spirits, I rolled away from the depot of the Memphis and Louisville railroad, borrud across the continent and the Pacific. Concerning the trip across the con tinent, there is little to say; it is a long, monotonous route. After leav ing Omaha, you cross an immense prairie for five hundred or more miles. Look at it for fifteen-minute!, and you have " done " that part. Von are then on the plateau of the Hocky Mountains, which 'is merely an ele vated plain with sonx- hills in sight. Look fifteen minutes more, and go to sleep again. Going dowu into Salt Lake Valley, through Weber and Echo canons (pronounce canyons), for seventy-five or a hundred miles, you see some barren, rough country, with very little of the beautiful or ruman tie: then through the Devil's Gate into the valley, and Krigham's Territory, passed over a very road, have slept cars, drank villainous coffee, and ate the most detestable "frys" and baked stuff just such as yoa will get at Grand Junction, or Humboldt, or Jackson, Miss. At Ogden- you leave the cars of the Union Pacific, and take those of the Central Paciiir Raif road a change slightly for the worse, as the former road is evidently in the hands of experienced railroad people, whilst the latter is controlled and managed by green Californiani, evi dently just learning the business. At Ogden is also the junction of the Salt Lake City road, which place 1 visited on my return and will glanee at now. Brigham Young Ls President of this road, and controls ft, as he does ev erything else in the valley. The newsboys oner tor sale sundry books and pamphlets about Mormon; -in, especially defending polygamy, which seems to be the keystone of their faith. 1 rom a smalL guide book you are in formed that in 1847 the "saints," num bering 1-13, men, women and children, entered the valley. There are now about 100,000 of the aforesaid saints! and some of them as rough customers as you would wish to meet on a lonely road. Howevex, they are not so bad as most people would make them out. These people were driven West main ly by the Atissourians, who took a nan ludtrruent one mirnt o.i the prophet, Joseph Smith, in jail, and forced him to slip his wind, and Brig ham and the remainder to disperse. 1 i a opening to get in conversation with a young man in the cars, I dis covered by his dialect that he was from the South from Missouri. I made inquiries of him conernini; these strange people. He had trav eled on horseback throughout the length and breadth of the land, had traded and lived with them. I asked him if the same old antipathy still ex istrtl to tho Missourians ; if they still kept alive their ijenchant for horse stealing, etc. He replied: "The eople here are mostly young .Mor mons or foreigners, and have little or uo knowledge of the former troubles. They are the most industrious, toil some people I have ever seen; they are the most virtuous, and the fairest, squarcst people i. have ever traded with. J have never had anvthine stolen by them, and I don't believe they will steal. They are very poor, make their own cloth, leather and food, which keeps them constantly ba-iy." This was the candfd verdict of one of my own countrymen, a man who took a plain, straight-forward view of the Mormons as they were. Himself practical, frank and unsophis ticated, he viewed them from m prac tical stand-point. He had nothing to make by getting up a war with the Mormons or by abusing them, nor had he anything to lose. He had served with Price, and was not accus tomed to be afraid. " The city,"" tak ing out the fact that it has had much said about it, and is the headquarters of Brigham and the-Territorial ami church governments, is about as little worth seeing as any place I know of. Well, I would sooner stop there a day than at Humboldt or Grand Junction, but it is not to be compared a a iou-n to Boipvar, and is not to be thought of alongside of Jackson. Yes, I have it ; Brownsville and Salt Lake City are aliout alike. If there happens to be a rivalry between these villages, I tx; they will not consider me prejudiced; and as for Grand Junction and Hum boldt, I wish it decidedly understood that I am at war with the chaps there who sell those "frys" for a dollar. But let us get back. The valley of the Salt Lake is an elevated alkaline C'n, of most uninviting appearance, ruled on the East by the rough and barren'rocky mountains (declin ing from the base of the mountains toward the Lake) ; devoid of trees or green herbage, except the grease wood or sage brush growth ; with small, very iuail farms, only susceptibls of cultivation where irrigation f can be practiced; but little stock in sight, and you have presented before you the picture of a desert rather than a para dise. I imagine that it is counterpart, of Syria, as .Bayard Taylor remarks. The beach of the lake is white with salt. What possessed Brigham to lead his flock there' 1 can't imagine. I confess, however, that looking at and thinking of this country gave me much comfort. In twenty-three years this desert, situated a thousand miles from navigable water, has been made to bloom ; from a mere handful (143 they have Increased to 100,000 souls. They haVe built themselves homes, towns and villages, roads, bridges; es tablished industries; planted schools; supporLjewspapers ! What nihy we not do la. the same time with our country? The first thing that attracts your at tention is the tabernacle, a large build ing, reminding one forcibly of . huge dLsh-cover set on low pillars ; a great terrapin's shell hoisted a short dis tance off the ground and paintetTlead color. Our party went to the gate of the inclosure around the building, where was pusses' a notice that no one was allowed to view the edifice with out permission. - We applied, ard a gentleman dressed in genuine Tennes see cojtoeras colored jeans (the unin formed people of the North e ill it butternut) stood ready to chaperon us. He conducted us through the house, informed us that it would seat !1 1,000 people (I deduct 4000 from his asser tion), and that the voice of the speaker could be heard equally well in one part of the house as another. The or chine, I could more than pay hin4gan is tne largest ever constructed in ll&CB, III lillt lUI.LlfcM. 1CT31UB uoiug America, win De llaisheu in a year, and is the result of Salt Lake skill. The new temple is not yet above the basement story, and I estimate that it will not be finished in thirty years at the rate they are going at present. The des'gh is very handsome, and the work thus far is creditable. Our gaide accepted a half dollar and point ed out the residence of "Premd&U heUu-& Wilson Machine on terms Young" (meaning brother Brigham), to shit aU chine. who desire a sewing m& a neat plain structure, which has evi dently been added to from time to Und several hundred residences in j and about Memphis which arc botter than ,thts famed building. Over a gale which leads into a side yard used lor keeping wagons and cattle, a carv ing of wood, representing au eagle with outstretched wings, is- perched. The yard looked hot and dry, the gate was rickety, and the paint was wear ing off the eagle, which led me to wonder why every tourist who passed through mentioned and sketched "the celebrated gate of the Eagle." There is precious little to see, and when one goes a thousand miles he mutt see something. Adjoining Castle Brig ham, Mr. John Young, eldest son of tho President, has a museum of things curious said to be found in the valley. 1 paid fifty cents to view the institu tion, and have no' hesitancy in pro nouncing it a fraud. A 'few old monkies, an old camel, a few little i' ;ir. , some cloths and fossils make up the wonderful collection. The superintendent told us that his biggest and ugliest monkey had died only the day before: that his name bad been " ( Nullum," we inquired why CullumV "What,don'tyou know Mint he is the man who has introduced the bill against polygamy." We suggested that he must be a very clever fellow then, as we couldn't see what a man wanted with more than one wife, and (speaking tor tho benefit of several young ladies who stood around the monkey cage) we surely thought every woman was entitled to an entire man to herself. Whereupon the eldest of the party bridled and remarked that she didu't want any! Brigham has a theater, which we visited. It was much like any other similar place, with a ftiir sprinkling of good-looking girls. To see one fel low come in with two or three wo men, howpver, was very suggestive. The fellow who kept the hotel was a bandy-legged little Dutchman. The diumg-room was Linked after by'Utree young women. With all the ingenuity we possessed we were not able to get out of him the number of hLs wives. At the photograph gallery we asked to see the picture of Mrs. Vouma. An album with twenty or thirty pictures was produced. Iu addition we were shown a dozen or two pictures of the Misses Young, all grown and mar riageable, some quite handsome. . The first thing that attracts one's attention in the street is the peculiar ity of the signs over the doors of the business establishments. For in stance, a big board shaped like a bunb-stone, is emblazoned with the picture of a straw bee-hive, and the all-seeing eye. Around these two emblems are the words " Holiness to the Lord, "and beneath,"Zions Co-operative Mercantile Establishment." This, no doubt, is to point out to the saints where they are to trade. It looked very rediculous to see the Co-operative signover asmall cobbler's stall, and an equally diminutive candy stand. Over several very good- looking places we laueu to see the sign. These were (ientiie shops or were owned hy backsliders. Ten per cent, of the earnings of the people must be paid to the head oi the Church annually, which the Mor mons insist is strictly accounted for. and it is this money, in the hands of one man which has increased the pop ulation of the valley so rapidly. Tlie railroad has been of no benefit to the Mormons. Formerly thev found ready sale for their surplus hay and grain to tne thousands of teams trad ing to the territories farther West ; now Uiey only provide lodging and toou tor the tew travelers who stop a day, and supply the few troops that are stationed in their vicinity. Upon the whole it is a small, uninteresting place. from ujfaen westward we sweep over deserts, down the Hum boldt river, to the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevf-das. Fifteen minutes Will suffice until you come to the mountains. Then you will see some very handsome scenery, mountain and gorge, lake, river and pine tree For thirty miles on the eastern slope you are snut, up in suow slietls, very rmich like briDg in a long tunnel. Up to the summit you go drawn by two engines, and down to the plains of California, l ou pass by a few places wneru mining is iu neing carried on, and you pass over some ground for merly the richest in California, but now worked out and deserted. To sum up the trip which has been so much extolled in railroad adver tisements, for beauty, grandeur, etc., I have this to say: From Memphis to Lynchburg Ls much more beautiful and interesting ii you nappen to miss that abom inably dirty, leaky and generally un comfortable sleeping car I was once doomed to on the Memphis and Charleston railroad. You can see more for much less money, and enjoy more comfort. The first place you see of any im portance in California is the capital, Sacramento, which is by far the hot test, dustiest place you are likely to tall iu with, unless it happen that the Southern Pacific railroad shall be built, ami you fcike it in your head to stop at Fort Yu ;na. B it there is no place of real importance in California, except San Francisco ; there is all the State. Everything centers there, and it goes to a very good place. 1 visited this place first: in lK and found a village somewht.t resembling the an cient and much dilapidated county seat oi Mieiny county, naitigh a square with a dozen bouses about it. lu 1 si;-.) I found it a splendid city, a New York ef 120,000 inhabitants. Bat it is not my purpose or intent, even it 1 bad the time, to attempt a descrip tion of this city 'of the Pacific. We are bound to China, and let us depart therefor. Before leaving San Francisco I spent a month in investigating the Chinese in that city, endeavoring to find out in what way they could be made use ful to us here in the SoutU. I found them to excel in every branch of use fulness. By their aid the ladies of San Francisco have been redeemed from the thraldom of Biddydom. Mkm. One of the counts in the in dictment against this Asiatic pauper, this yellow mongrel, is that he has supplanted these virtuous though sometimes high-tempered females, hence h should be expelled that State, and be forbidden to come. (ry. Have the people who employ servants no rights; muss they be com pelled to submit to extortion, bad service and bullying? Who dis charges good servants? He has made the. manufacture of woolen cloth a success, which was before a failure the capital invested in the business having been almost a dead loss. This capital was rescued to the State, and the wool grown there must no longer be carried around Cape Horn twice, and pay profits to 'a dozen par ties before the grower of the wool may get a coat or a blanket. California is the first wool-producing State in the Union. By manufacturing her pro ducts millions will be saved to her annually. She cannot do it without cheap labor, add the Unions want no cheap labor; hence the millions must go elsewhere. Two thousand Chinese cigar-makers are constantly employee , who keep not less than two million dollars a year from going to foreign cities. Are these two millions of any account? The same number of shoe makers hold another pair of millions in San Francisco ; but that is nothing. And so 1 found them in every place where steady work was to be done.' How I wish the Chinamen cooJd all be taken out of San Francisco, and put into Memphis. I wish we had the woolen factories and cigar makers 'and shoe shops, and all the other shops where a little capital, and good, reliable, staady labor, would soon bring wealth from all quarters. The ignorant people of California, and the demagogues who raise the hue and" cry against the Chinaman, urge that, by their econ omy and thrift, the Chinese accumlate money and carry it away. How much do they carry? There are 70,000 Chmamen in that State. It is not un reasonable to say that they earn $910 per capita, per annum, which would give them $14,000,000. Out of this sum the companies declare that no mare than $1 ,3bu,ooo is taken to China by individuals, and that not more than 29 per cent, of that sum is spent '! China, the balance being paid to ( the American vessels for return pas sages. Compare this paltry sum, with the amount sent annually away to pay for luxuries and things neces sary lor the American or. European population. They export to Europe something like .100,000 tons of wheat ner annum, an immense quantity of wool, and thirty or forty millions of bullion. But these white chaps are the masters; they have a right to send their money where they choose. A Biddy, who gets $40 per month for cooking, has a perfect right to send her money to any Head Center she may elect; but never a cent must John send away. The Chinese in Califor nia compete for employment to An extent that enables the farmers to raise grain for export; which export is equal to $14,000,000 per annum Take the Chinaman out of the State, give him to us, say, and the price ot labor will at once appreciate to a point which will fornid production (it is a poor business as it is) for ex port, and the State will be deprived of fourteen million dollars exchanges. Let them try it once, and they will bid high for tho Chinaman to come back. Let us examine the matter in another point of view. An industri ous, steady man, will yearly produce from the soil iu this country products of value not less than $400, and in our alluvial it will reach from $i00 to $800 per antrum. To do it, as a matter ot course, he must work like a CUho man. Now it is claimed that Cali fornia is a country much superior to ours to make money in (which is a very great error,, by the Way), and hence it is not unreasonable to sup-" pose that in that State he produces annually $.00 wealth, or $:V,000,000 per annum for that population. He semis, as we have shown, but $1, ;"0, 000 away. Therefore, he adtls directly to the wealth or that State $:i3,0oo.00o per year. Aud yet the idiots would stop him from coming, and drive him away. The presence of the Chinese in California is the direct cause of cheap food in that State. Take this competitor out of the labor market, and the farmer must stop tilling the land, or raise ttie price of his pro ducts; then who will be pinched? tin the other hand, it may be urged that in that prolific State no such calamity Ls likely to come. Why not? Farmers are no more fools than other people; they will not work their lands at a loss; and this laboring lass which is so much afraid of Chinese competi tion, is not likely to be possessoa of enterprise, spirit or capital enough to become farmers themselves; and if they have these requisites they have already shown that the; will not work fornothing! Oh! no, not they! Prior to the war, and whilst the Chinese found abundant employment iu the mines, llour was regularly sent front Richmond, and sold at a profit in San Francisco. That cannot now happen. The Ialor which pro duced the Virginia ilour has .been destroyed, whilst at the same time labor has depreciated in California. Before finishing with this subject, we will consider the value of 70,000 Chinamen employed in the Valley of the Mississippi or its tributaries in the cotton belt, but we are now bound to China, and let us go. To be continued. GRANT ON THE WAR. What be Thinks it Will Amount to -Why the North S,mpathizes With Germany. Comparison Between this and the War Be tween the States. What will be the Effect Upon our Trade ami Commerce Grant Happy Over the Prospeot. From the New York Sun, one of whose reporters recently interviewed the President at Long Branchy we copy the following. In response to the reporter's question as to his views of the situation, General Grant answered They seem to be getting into a tree hirht. 1 hey can't be sepa rated now. vv hen two ooyi tight you can stop the tight, but when every body is lighting there is no one to step in and separate. At first I thought the war would lie short now 1 think it will be long, and it seems as if every power in Europe will get into it. England must stand by Belgium, the fruits of Waterloo, and wc know Napoleon, as he said to the Mayor of Itouen in Isoi., "hates tpe treaty ot 1815." This treaty .Napoleon 1. signed against his will, and, although he gave up the south bank of the Rhine then, in form, the French have never given it up in spirit. The tight with Napoleon is for the south bank of the Rhine. With Prussia it is a de tense of the Bismarck- Sort ii-Gerinan Confederation. Then Napoleon needed something to kill Rochefortism at home. He needed what Alexander H. Stephens suggested to President Lincoln and Mr. Seward, when they thought of patching aip a truce at Hampton Roads, in WMi an extrinsic policy to unite everybody on. ' Eng land knew what Stepens' extrinmc policy meant, for Seward's dispatch made them open their eyes wide. It meant North and South join against Canailu. It took diplomacy to get this extrinsic idea out of Stephens and Jeff; so it took diplomacy to get the French signature to the secret treaty Which would enable Napoleon to gob ble up Saarf truck and Landau, and re store Luxemburg to the French. But it took greater diplomacy to reject it. Bismarck did it, and he now hands the rejected proposition over to the other powers, as Seward banded over Stephens's Canada policy to Eng land. The defeat of King William is the squelching- of Belgians. Our sympathy is the result of com merce, German emigration, and be cause the Germans took oar bonds and stood with us during the, war. France didn't. King VyUliam and Bismarck sent three telegrams oi con gratulation to us. Not one came from Napoleon, who, on the contrary, was all the time hitting us sly dabs in Mexico. Seward let him hit, because his army was all the time eating tip the beef and tanning the hides which otherwise would have gottenanto the rebel army. In fact, Maximilian was a sort of provision destroyer in Mex ico. If we go back of the last war, there Ls no reason why we shouldn't sympatbree with France. Napoleon sent troops, and Lafayette cam to help us, while Frederick the Great hired out a lot of Hessians to Great Britain. What do you think of the capture of Saarbruck.-General? General Grant Little skirmishes and a reconnoLssance now and then don't amount to anything. We must wait lor the campaign. Sometimes, in checkers, a man gives away one man, anifcay-and-by takes three. So in war.Men, Saarbruck don't seem to have Wen a German town. It was like the rebels first taking Bowling Green, Ky., or Little Rock. It rather belonged totkem; bat when General Steele retook Little Rock, that was a victory. I think Mayence will be the Fredericksburg of the war, and. may be, the UiaeK rorest will be the Wi - deruess. At least, 1 should think that mtxleni warfare had demonstrated the fact that it is foolish to assault a fortified town when you can just as well march around it and compel the attacked party to starve or come- out and fight you. General Hooker and General Bttrnside both stormed Fred erhksburg, but I think if they hfld it to do over again you would see them marching right round to the rear. Mayence. . Coblentz. and even Ehrenbreltenstein, the Gi braltar of the Rhine, if managed atall, will have to te managed as Fred ericksburg was at last. You can't storm Ehreubreitenfiteiu any more than you could Vicksburg from the Louisiana tlats. loucaii bombard it. but, when taken, it will have to be starved out. Now I don't think these French fellows are much on thestarve ont process ; they're too tastJ, and here Prussia has the inside track. ,Sun Correspondent What will be the probable strategy of the Prussian army ? General Grant-It will undoubtedly remain strictly on the defensive. The Prussians are now where the Aus triaus were during the last war. They Will find deJenuing theuiseiveti against the French far different from cenquer ing Austria. The victory of Konig gratz was won without a Prussian quartermaster's department without even a base of supplies. They started, like General Pope, wtth head quarters and hindquarters in Uie saddle. This strategy is only sale with victory. It would have been iu disastrous with King William at KoQiggrati. as It was with General Pope at Centreviiie nad ne met wttn nppulse. The Austrian1 campaign was successful: but it would not do for" King William to fight the French in this way. He must stand still in trench ; and the French must dig him out or work in tlrifhrear. Spades will be trumps again, si at Vicksburg. There is a striking analogy between the French and the Prussian armies and the old Union and rebel armies. Prussia's strategy should be to-Stand still, if she takes rheaggressive,pen etrating French territory, the same result will undoubtedly await her that awaited Lee in Pennsylvania. i.'itysburg and Antietam bojh weak cued the rebeli mere than years of de fense warfare. Keniggraty. will not be repeated during this war. Sui Correspondent What will Be the eflls-t of the war on this country? ieneral Ciraut History will repeat itself. Our war raised values, not only here, but all over the world. Peo ple couldn't live in Europe after una, nor one-half as cheap as before. The present war will raise values in Kurope. Americans will come home. Iron and leather and coal will advance there. Then we can com pete with them Without a tariff the war will be a self-imposed high tariff, imposed On every article of foreign importa tion. This war (and here the General was enthusiastic) will be the greatest blessing that coukl be afforded to America It will raise Europe up to an equilibrium of price- and labor. Our lactones will start again. Impor tations will cease. They will no longer be aiiie to make a coat cheaper in Eu rope than in this country. ur bread stuffs and bacou will have to furnl-n their quartermaster's department in directly. Pork will advance, and gen eral farm produce will bring corres pondingly high figures if the War lasts, as I now think it will. Our bonds will come home at first, but they will be quickly absorbed. They are sate, and loreigners are even now making large deposits ef them in American banks. Many are coming back, but few want to realize on them. They make a sure revenue for them, no matter how the war turns out at home-. Sun Correspondent How about our merchant marine our shipping? General Grant Here we have made' a great, a suicidal mistake. Before Congress adjourned we ought to have made arrangements fur the purchase of foreign vssels. They are in the market now at cheap figures, but we can't buy'them. The old act of Con gress provides for the building of ships at home, but prohibits their purchase of a foreign power. By an act ot Congress, we can't buy a vessel which we once owned bat sold to Gefmany daring our war that Is, we can't change her llag. If we buy and sail under Prussian flags, then France will gobble us up. Our war killed, our merchant marine. In uie face of the Alabama pirates we sold out cheap. England had no acts of Parliament against buying, and she possessed herself of our ships at half price. Now Is the time for us to get even by buying the ships of France and Prussia. This is what I wanted Congress, to do. But many of our (Congressmen know nothing of shipping; they are farmers' and law yers, and the idea did not strike them with force before adjournment. Now they see it. I get letters every day tilled with rearets that wo die not fix this think up so as to build up our merchant marine. It was a great mistake, sir a great mistake.

Mystery Did Vaudoolsm have asy nection with the- Abdnction of the Child ? Con At an early hour on Tuesday morn ing, Mr. Thomas Digby succeeded in finding his lost child. After weeks of intense anguish, happiness is at last restortsl to the bereaved family, and the parents clasp their little one in their arms. Its dreary wanderings, the scenes it has passed through, the treatment it has been subjected to, of coiuse twniot new lie descsibed ; and the public will be content to know that it is found, and the long search and the dreary watchings are over. V.'JIF.n AND ItOW IT DI.HAJM'KA&KD. It disapieared from its home on the morning of the 9th of June. It will be recollected that the child in com pany with its lftUe brother and a young lady, Miss Rosa Gorman, were playing on Howard street, beween Lafayette and Poydras, at the time in questions SuddepJy the fin? bells rung out, and the young lady, who had the child in her arms, handed it to the little boy, saying: "Hold Molly, wbile I see where the fire is." "Let me take the boy," said a voice near them, and turning around Miss Gor man discovered two women, a mulat tresii, tall and very pretty, and a low set, heavy negrees. It was the mulat tress that spoke, aud extending her arms, took tho child. She bad Ixen seen in the. street frequently before, and frequently noticed lavishing caresses on the baby, -which, from its cunning ways. and delicate beauty, usually excites attention, eveh from strangers. Miss Gorman went in the direction of the tire, and the two women, one of them carrying tho child and accompanied by its little brother, walked around the corner, up Lafayette street to the corner of Dryades. Here the mulat tress stopped, and giving the little boy some money, told him. to go to the fruit and and get some bananas for his sist. The boy went, but when, a moment afterward, fie re turned to the place, the baby, and the women had disappeared. From that day until this (Tuesday) morning no trace ol them could oe tounu. WnEMLTIIE CHIID WAS FOLTTD. On being visited by a reporter, the father was so quite beside himself that he could give but little informa tion as to where the child was-found. It was np town somewhere, however. and he could drive to the house. In answer as to how he had found the babv. he reiilied that a gentleman an elderly man had called at his house early -in the morning, about half-past t o'clock, and informed him that he had a child at his home that he was quite sure was his 1 1 ligby's). Mr. and Mrs. Digby were still in Tied, and the latter wanted to go with the gentleman, 'bnt he, remembering how often she had been bitterly dis appointed before, insisted on her re maining at ho tne, and got ready at once to go himself. "Little did I think," said he, "I wes on my way to find my little Moll." He remembered that they got into a Jackson street ear, but could act say just where they got out somewhere near Josephine and Chestnut streets, he thought. The house was quite an elegant one, aud ou entering with the. gentleman, he saw a bids walking op and down the side latticed gallery with a child in her arms. He could scarcely be lieve his senses. Either that was his long-lost, long-sough l-foj baby, or he was dreaming. Fearing lesthe might be i u in tak en, he looked steadily at the child for some moments, and catching her in his arms, said, in answer to an inquiry from the lady, " Yes, madam, this is my -baby." "Suppose," sug gested the lady, "she should not prove to "be your chiW." "Then I promise to return her, but I know it's Moll," lie answered as he ran out of the house to take her to her mother. A mother's instincts are iniaUible. Mrs. Bteby did uot hestitate a mo ment. It was her child. Clasping it in hex arms, the little one murmured, "Mamma! mammal tual recognition. AT THE UOL'SE OF CAPTAIN BEOAU WKLL. In his excitement at finding the (ihild, Digby had forgotten to ask the name of the gentleman, tnd conse quently Captain Badger divided that the next step was to go to , the house and asceitain the particulars from the gentleman and lady, whoever they might be. Accordingly Mr. and Mrs. DigbjviVith the child, Captain Badger, specials Malone and Joardan, Com missioner George, and several gentle men of the press, proceeded in car riages to the house No. 49 Chestnut street, between St. Andrew ana Jose phine, which proved to be the resi dence of Captain James Broad well. Mrs. Broadwell admitted the .-Superintendent of police with three others, to the house, inviting tliem to take seats m the hall. The Superintendent courteously inquired whether Mrs. Broadwell could give him any infor mation concerning the child. She re plied that she could not tell anything; that the child had been returned to its parental; and she believed that one of the stlpulstujfis was that no questions would be asked. i ne of the gentlemen present re marked that he thought these was some such stipulation in an adver tis&nent of Mr. Dlgby's, nut that a crime had been committed against the State, and that oi course Mr. Dig by enirid only speak foe himself, aud could not sissibly interfere with the course of justice. CommlssiiAier Ceorge asked if the woman's name was not Ellen Angelo, and whether she did not five at the corner oft ainpa.nl i el lecastle streets. Mrs. Broad wnH saitl : "Yes, that is the woman; but I iieg that you will I lint trouble her, aa -Ii knows nothing of the abduction. I have known her a loug iiiio . and kuo v her to be above anything ol Uiekfud. " A THE BOCSal (If THE COT.OBEI) WOMAN. The next thiu wan to visit the re sikuci' of Ellen Angelo, and thither .-superintendent Badger and a num ber of others proceeded. She? was quite surprised at the visit, and re pealed aliiiost verbatim the words of Mrs. Broadwell. .She denied know inganything of the child, and in sisted that it had lieen leffcat her gate on Wednesday last i.ya woman, who, though closely veiled, she believed to be white. She had only kept the child so long because she thought the woman would return and claim it, but that she had finally turned it over to Mr. and Mrs. Broadwell. A while lady who has been boarding in the bouse for some three weeks, stated, however, that the child was there whtn she arrived. A very aged negro woman cook thought the child hail been there about three weeks, and a young son of Mrs. Fol lin's (about fifteen years old, known by the name of George Blase), said the child had been there about a month. These were all examined separately, and their statements were sufficiently contradictory to warrant an arrest of the woman Kiityi FMiin and her son George Blass as being, acces sories to the kidnapping. ol Mr. Dig by's child, and having harbored and on ceased the same. They were accordingly arrested, a warrant having been Issued upon an affidavit made by special officer Ma lone, and taken to jail to await ap pearance before Recorder Campbell. The house, it appears, Ls what is known as a lyingm-hospital, and the woman in charge is a very bright looking light-colored mulatto, and is said to have considerable property. She has a sister in Mobile named Louisa Murray, who keeps a similar house to her own, and conies over to New Orleans quite often. .Suspicion has attached to this woman in Mobile, and Superintendent Badger has taken steps to have her arrested. THB SUPfUHEI) ABDl'CTOB. It is thought by some that the child was stolen by Louisa, who -left her with her sister here, though no reason is assigned for the abduct ion. A grHOCLAR CIBCl'MBTAlCE. A singular circumstance connected with this case is the fact that, on Sun day last, Captain George, with a lew officers, went up to the house where the child had I wen secreted, acting on information obtained, questioned the inmates and searched the premises. The woman Ellen Foilin denied then that there was any strange child on the premises, but it has since been as certained tii.it at that very time the child was secreted in the yard. Spe cial Officer Jourdari threatened her at the time with arrest, but sie answered veryeooUy: "Very well, sir; as you please. I assure you, however, I know nothing of the child you are looking for." The white lady who is boarding in the house, relates to the reporter that she had noticed a little child there, but being a stranger she had asked no questions. She had frequently heard Ihe newspajier accounts of the " lost -hild" read in the house, had read wr the description carefully, but it never occurred to her that the little girl in the house was the child in question. Sho-says, further, that when the persons came on Sunday night looking for the child, they at first ad dressed her, asking very abruptly "where is the child?" Before she could even reply, however, or ask them what child they meant, they passed on and entered into a conver sation with Ellen Foil in, she retiring to her room. By this piece of inad vertence the officers failed to find the child and lost the reward. BROADWELL lpiGNANT XD BK I'HIEN !s THE ADIILCTOR. ('apt. Broadwell had an interview with the Chief about 5 o'clock. He exhibited great indignation that say one should have presumed to visit his house at all. He says that Digby published that "uo effort would U- made to discover the abductress in case the child was returned." He says he relied on this promise when he brougtt it back. -He regards the arrest of the colored woman as an outrage, and says he will go her ball for any amount, .and woald infinitely prefer taking Atr place m jaU than have her remain there. He proceeded at once to Jefferson City, where.roenring the services of L. Madison Day, he endeavored to have the woman released on bond. We learn, however, that Captain Woodruff and Recorder Campbell de clined to release her until Uie jase could be heard. IF THE CHILD COULD SPEAK. U little Mollie Digby could speak, what a story she might tell, what an insight it might give of- the effects of evil passions., of the fearful deprav ity of men and women's hearts. But alas.' it cannot even point out those who betrayed it. It may possibly have caressed its worst enemies and smiled in the lace of those who- so cruelly ill-treated it. THE ABDL'tUOB AND II KB COMPAN IONS MUST BE PL NIMH ED. These are the tacts. They- have nn trace of the abductor. Bat these Ls clue. The mer?fact of the dico?exy of the child affords incontestible evi dence of the near presence af those who stole it Their own sense of fear is evinced m the surrender of the in Mnt. The detective can woafc op the case if he brings experience and shrewdness to his aid. This sort of crime, If permitted to pass unwbipped of justice, will be but incentive to the wicked, stimulated by the hope of reward, and conscious ot escaping the pcnaltic of crime. It fixes a responsibility on onr poBce they cannot evade it demands from them action they cannot disregard or omit. The parties implicated in this great wickedness must be found.
