Now that slavery has been abolished, the Radical anxiety to abol ish Something else is taking definite shape in the large meetings now -held in California to advocate the banishment of Chinamen from that State. The complaint is that the Chinese com pete with 1 native laborers by offering "to work cheaper; that they send the money they make inTCalifojrnia to .China; and that the-introduction of a race so totally foreign to the laws, lan guage, religion and civilization of the country, is questionable policy. The opposition, at pre vent, is directed against the 'large and wealthy companies having agents, who transport coolies to California and hire out their1 labor and ser vices ; but the real objection seems to be that the Chinese are coming in such numbers, and their labor can be secured at such low rates, as to threaten to drive out all other kinds of labor and other classes of immigrants. It is not de nied that the Chinese are faithful servants and good workmen. They now fill nearly all the menial positions in San Francisco and in Cali fornia generally. Tbe men cook, wash clothes, do house-work and perform other services that usually fall to women, at very low rates of remu neration. .

From the Raleigh Sentinel. : - Messrs.. Editobs :- My attention has Veen called to an article in the Sentinel, in which I find the following extract -from the "Life and Campaigns, of General Robert E. Lec," by Mr McCabe: . ' . .u l-vo , l cJ!v.:: "; v. "Still.the line pressed on, winning the admirn tion of even its foes by the magnificence of its ad vance. Suddenly, when t the crest was almost reached, the hillblawd with the fire of the Federal infantry, and Pettigrew's division, in spite of the efforts of its gallant commander to rally it," broke in dismay and fled from the field", leaving two thoa satd prisoners and fifteen standards ia the bands of theJDnion army. ... . . , .:.- : , ; .' ' '. "" The. triumph was nearly won and was as brief as it waa glorious. The . enemy rallied on their second line and "poured a withering fire into the captured works now held by the Vir ginians. Glaneing around to look for bis support, Pickett, foand that be was alone, that Pettigrew's men had fled and left him to hia fate. . His grand charge had been in vaia." ." It. is greatly to be; regretted that Gen. Lee has fallen into the hands of so .misinformed a biographer. All of ns know Gen. Lee. Our j hearts swell with pride at the mention of his I name a name second ' to none on the roll of fame. We loved him in the army. His bland smile cheered every heart; his noble bearing nerved every arm. . It was ;my fortune to have a personal interview with himbut- once, and then under orders. I approached his tent with some degree of trepidatioo, but his genial smile and calm bearing at once reassured me.-. He received me more like a father would have done a son, than the' Commander-in-Chief of one of the grandest armies . the world : ever 6a w, would an unknown soldier. , 1 met with none of the difficulties that 1 did in .obtaining an interview with a post, commander, io North Carolina. I passed no guards, and saw not half the indica tions of military rank and importance that sur rounded that camp. He gave me his hand, offered me seat, and the interview., ended, he thanked me for my prompt compliance with his request. I left him, feeling that I had been in the presence of one truly good and great, and wishing that the. petty post commander might be taught the same lesson I had learned, a sense of my littleness, an idea of true greatness God bless the old , hero! May Heaven's choicest blessings ever Test on him and his ! : But to Geo. Lee's biographer : . I know not who Mr Jas. t). McCabe, Jr., of Virginia, is - It may be that he is .one .of those who won honors on hard , fought fields. It, may be he took notes a convenient distance in the rear, or received bis information from one who did, Of this I know nothing, but I do assert there was no bad conduct on the part of Pettigrew's brigade in the third day's charge at Gettysburg. It was my fortune to be an humble member of Pettigrew's Brigade, and to advance with it ia that fatal charge., I am the only field efficer i of that old Brigade, save the gallant Maj Jones, of .the 26tb, who afterwards fell in the Wilder ness, whose fortune it was ever again to meet the enemy on the field of battle. In the first day's fight, the 11th aod 2Cih had suffered heivily. Col. Leaven th rope, of ,the lltb, pain fully wounded, and afterwards taken prisoner, the gallant and accomplished.. Major Boss fell while leading the regiqiept. The loss in the 26th had been heavier still, for.it was there the gallant, promising and beloved Burgwyn poured out his life's biod, and his Lieutenant Colonel, Lane, fell wounded and bleeding by bis side. The 47th and 52d, on the right of the Brigade, had not lost so heavily, though the loss in the 47th was about 125 killed, wounded and mis sing among the killt d the gallant and amiable Capt. Iredell; peace t o his ashes ! He died as the brave ever wish to die, beloved by all, his comrades, and in the faithful discharge of his, duty. It was after this bloody, but glorious encounter of the first day, that, late in the even ing of the second, the Brigade was ordertd to the right where Longstreet. bad been hotly en gaged from 4 o'cloclc. Night closed the action. On the morning of the third, we were aroused to a sense of our situation, and no man,, who viewed the ground, but felt that, when the charge was made that all thought would be. blood must flow and gallant spirits take their final flight. At first it was ordered that Pickett should advance, supported by, Heth's Division, then commanded by Pettigrew, but afterwards this disposition waa changed, and Heth's Divis ion moved to the left, and on a line with Pickett. And here, I thinkt we find the ground on which are based all the charges of bad conduct on the part of Pettigrew's Brigade. Pickett's men ad v meed, expecting to be, supported by Pettigrew, but the support did not reach them in time, and tbey very naturally .censured -Pettigrew's men for the failure. Whether any one was to blame or not, I am not able to say, but certain am . I that Pettigrew's .Brigade, was not for, at the very moment Pickett claims to have had, and did have, a portion of the enemy's works, and was looking to the rear for Pettigrew's troops, those-troops were on line With him, battling as bard and breasting as bravely that storm of death as the bravest in'Pfck'ett's command;, and as they looked anxiously to tbe rear for support from Pettigrew, so did Pettigrew's Brigade look in vain for itssupDorf: andai Pickett failed. unair.g -nis grana cnarge naa oeen in .tbiu, fcr the Want of saDDbrti so did Pettigrew. "glauc c j- .. 5 . i r . ' ing around, fiod that his grand charge had been in vain," for the same re ason. : , PeUtlgrews Brigade was no more 'responsible for the failure of Pickett's charge than was Gen. Bodes, who was still further 16 the left and under orders not to ure a gun At 1 o'clock, the signal guns were heard, and, for nearly two hours, I oever lbtened to fo ter rific a cannonade.

Fortune favored '. Pickett; they escaped the flank fire from ; the left nd from which we suffered so severely. We heard their shouts, as tbej, entered the -.works; we struggled to carry our point, out failed. We heard the burzas of the Yankees when tbey were, driven r out, and though the retreat may have commenced on the left, yet We. honestly think it was nearly simultaneous.. , . 1 T The want of men made the charge a failure; we cou!d no more 4help Pickett' than he could us,' and we have as much right to complain that be did not , como to our support, as be has to complain that we did not go to him. , J Pickett was more successful than we were, lie broke the line, and for a moment held the froot work; but . that he and. Pettigrew were both . fairly beaten and driven back, however1 painful may be the confession, is a fact that can not be denied. Had both Divisions broken through the line, they would have been driven out as Pickett was, aud the triumph have been as short lived. . . .'.', , f ... - ; ; . To attach blame to., Pettigrew's Brigade for the failure is as absurd as it: would be to charge the South with a. want of manhood, because she failed; and with no data by roe, I venture the assertion. that-Pettigrew's Brigade lost as many in killed and wounded (ami no more prisoners) as any Brigade in Pickett's Division" We mean not to reflect on Pickett or his gallmt Doldiers, but we do deny on any field, and under any circumstances, they ever displayed more gal lantry than Pettigrew's old Brigade. ' And what is it our Virginia friends would have us do, to convince them that there is some manhood in theOltl .North Stite? Why waa it that, wbeo victory perched upon our banner, they forgot that- North Carolina troops? en there, and when disastet'a blasting breath rent his silken folds', tbey . are ready to say you ' if.' Is it':'not enough that the bonus of-her sons lie on every battle field in Virginia? Is it not enough that her Branch, Pender,' Fisher, Pettigrew, and a host of nobie spirits, perished there defending alike Virginia and North Caro lina?

Probably in every age since the time of poof Adam and Eve's trouble with their willful son, the world has been tuppnfted to be near Its end t on account or the naughtiness ot noys. il confess that,' for ourselves, in moments of wrath at the impish perversity, or of sorrow at the precocious wicKeuness of norcu -specimens ox . American boyhood, we have sometimes been tempted to that supposition, and certainly we could not much wonder if vYoung America fur nished more food fur the prophet's avengiog bears than young Ismael supplied, yet the world has continued to be, and generation after gncr- ' ation has risen from petticoats to jackets and trowscrs, and from jackets and trowsers to coats and pantaloons, without any utter extinction of the line of masculine succession. ' Thai success s'on will probably be kept up in this hemiephere, " and here, as of old, the folly of youth' will, la due time, be subdued by the wisdom of sge. Our daughters' are constitutionally more marked by sensibility, end our' eons are more marked by willfulness The eonsequehce is that we are move anxioas what will happen to' our daughter., and what will happen from our soot , the daughter's sensitiveness exposing bar .to . r ccive harm and the son's willfulness ex posinr'., him to do ' harm. We are not wise to quarrel ' with nature, and we must expect that boys wiU be mo' noisy and mischievous than girts; nay, ' we may count it a good sign of a lad's force of oharacter if there is a good share of aggressive, fun-hving pluck in , his e imposition. 'Well managed, his animal spirits will give him all. the more manly loyalty, and when true to the right-' eiuse, he will ba all the more' true because 6 u uch living sap has ' gene up Into tbe " fruit of bis obedience.
