UIDDLKTOWR, DEL. f SATURDAY MORNING, JULY IT, 1869 Am Important Movrmrnt. A convention met at Memphis, Tennes see, on Tuesday lost, the object of which was to employ Chincso laborers to supply the neods of the South. A Coolie contrac tor from California attended. What more oonld have been expected, since tho groes under the tutelage of northern carpct have turned politicians and rayed themselves against their former tors and become unreliable as laborers. If tho South should be filled with Asiatics, ns it is now likely to be, from the teeming millions of that overcrowded part of the world, let the Africans all migrate to the Northern States, particularly to New Eng land, and quarter themselves among the fioople so full of professions for their well rare. Let them test tho sincerity of New England philanthropy, and of their hon cyod professions of love for the children of Ham, whom they regard, or profess to re gsrd as "brethren, these people is truly to be commiserated. They stand more in noed of the sympathy and protection of the white man now, than ever. They need protection from them selves, from their prevailing vices and de moralization, and particularly from the lores and delusions of political scoundrel ism, which will work only their ultimate ruin. The freedom and enfranchisement nc ar mas The condition of of the race, here, while to their short sigh ted vision a seeming good, is a positive evil, as time will demonstrate. Their on ly place of safety is their native Africa. Liberia is the only refuge presented to these people. There, a genial climate, where subsistence for man springs almost spontaneously from mother earth ; where there are no prejudices of race to encoun ter, and whore a free government and lib eral institutions, render them free indeed. But, they will not go there. A few of the more intelligent and enterprising will, but the great mass of them will remain, to perish, gradually, like the red man of the forest, before the more hardy, active, and intelligent Caucasian. This is to be the solution of the " negro question," and we find that this is the view takeu of it, by many thinking and intelligent Republicans. In a speech de livered at Chestcrtown, on the 4tli of July, by Gen. R. Clay Crawford, he said : At the close of the present century there will f irobably he ninety millions of white inhabitants a the United States and only about two million In the rapid increase of the white race gradual decrease of the negro, lies the true and only possible solution of the negro ques tion, Let us then trouble ourselves negroes, and the longer about the negroes. They arc free not by your acts or mine, not by their own exertions, hut by the unforeseen result of n series of great events." The New York Ilerald thinks tho Af rican will be supplanted by the Asiatic. That journal recently gave publicity to the following, which is extracted from its columns : The Asiatic Exodds to tiie U. S.— Still they come. Already on tho Pacific slope there are some one hundred thousand Chinamen. On Thursday last twelve thou sand Chinamen arrived at San Francisco in sailing vessels. Silver is being found in large quantities in the White Pine dis trict. Chinese labor will, inconsequence, be more in demand than ever, too much to say that in ten years we shall have several millions of Chinese on the Pacific slope. They arc a hardy, indus trious, thrifty people, and, spite of their religious and social customs, they will help largely to develop the resources of those immense regions which lie west of the Rocky Mountains. The vast immi gration of Chinese into this country is pregnant with important results. It can not fail to tell in the long run mightily for good or evil on our destiny. The tide of immigration has changed its course. From Asia, the cradle of the race, it has in all the past moved westward. Now, for the first time in history, it is taking an eas tern direction. The thousands from Chi na will soon become millions. Japan will imitate the example of her neighbor. It will not be otherwise with India, we greatly mistake, this exodus from Asia brings with it the settlement of the negro question ; it will doubtless also give birth to others.— N. Y. Herald. As a temporary expedient, to supply the existing scarcity of labor in the South tho introduction of Chinese luborers be well enough for the present ; but apprehend tho South will have cause to regret it, iu the long run. The 15th amendment, when ratified, will admit these people, as well as the blacks, to ci tisensbip. They can no more become incorporated with the white race than the Africans, but must remain a distinct and separate people in their midst. Here they will be better fed, better paid, and receive better treatment generally, than they receive in their own country, and population is so dense there, they will ilock here by tens of thousands, bringing their idolatry and their many national vices with them, and will ultimately be a source of infinite trouble, not only to the South, but to the whole country, unless the baleful fungi attached to our Consti . tution during the night of political olution through which we are passing, be expurgated. Bitter experience will yet tiach this country that the only true ba sis of citizenship is that enunciated by that profound jurist, Judge Taney, in the celebrated Drcd Scott decision. This It is not Unless may we ns rev government was founded by whito men, and should bo controlled by white exclusively. The idea of admitting all nationalities and races to the privileges of citizenship is prpostcrous and absurd few years of experience will convince the most sceptical. , as a Tiib Price or Brkadstuvfs. —It is the opinion of many of our farmers that the price of wlient will be $2.00 per bushel before the close of the year. According to the New York Commercial Advertiser, letters from the Baltic ports show that the Russian Government has entered the grain markets of Germany as a purchaser of cereals. There has also been a revival of shipments. The exports of flour aud wheat during June, it is reported, have been very heavy, and much larger than during a similar period for several This activity, it is believed, has been caused by the increased demand for grain in the English market, caused by the di minution in the supplies from Russia. Another cause for the increased shipments of flour and grain to England is the recent repeal of the British law imposing duties on imports of four and a half pence per barrel on years. flour, and of a shilling per quar ter of eight bushels on grain. Although these duties appear to be trifling, yet they amount to a large sum on a heavy cargo, and the removal of this charge stimulates importation. Farmers, don't sacrifice your crops. Pennsylvania. — Hon. Asa Parker was nominated as the Democratic candidate for Governor, on the 2d ballot, at Harris burg, on Wednesday. A letter from Gen. Hancock was read, prohibiting the use of his name. The resolutions as reported, declare against the exorcise of doubtful constitu tional power—that Pennsylvania would never give up self-government—that the ratification of the fifteenth amendment should go before the people ; that the negro should not have the ballot ; that the finances need reform ; that labor re forms should be encouraged ; that the whole reconstruction policy tends to de stroy republican government and establish tyranny ; that our soldiers should not be forgotten ; that our sympathies should be given to nations struggling for liberty ; that our system of taxation is burdensome and should be done away with.

Mr. Ruby, of the Tousontotcn Advocate, Secretary of the Association, lias issued a circular calling upon them to meet at Baltimore, on the 5th of August. A majority favor a trip to Harper's Ferry, and other sections of Virginia contiguous to the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. They must not overlook Berkley, tho "Moun tain City," Oakland, and the Glades, Cheat River and tho Mounds. Our old friend, IVilson, of the Marlbo rough Gazette, has provided a new head for his paper, but the old head still guides the journal, and it needs no better.

The Virginia Election. The Virginia election is a poser to the Radical press. Tho election of Walker, by a majority of 50,000 of the popular vote, and a majority of fifty or sixty on joint ballot in the Legislature, has opened their eyes in amazement, done, why it was done, and whether it can bo dono How it was again, io Virgiuia, and other of the late slave-holding States, inquiries of tho greatest importance to them, just now. Some of them be gin to think that "manhood suffrage" a stick placed in the hands of their arc oppo nents only to break tho head of Radieal Thcy seem not to have had the least idea that Cufl'ee would ever cling to, and vote with, his old master, in preference to a Carpet-bagger. The result is astound ing. Nay, it is exasperating. Forney calls upon Congress to reject tho Virginia Constitution and her representatives. Gree ly, however, and Bryant, with more hon esty and decency, hope that Congress will do no such such thing. The smaller jour nals, echo and re-echo one or the other of these views, but all appear to be in great turmoil over the untoward result. Old 13111 . Democrats, who think "manhood suffrage," it is called, the greatest humbug of the day, aro nevertheless amused to see the Radicals beaten at their own as game. The New Atlantic Cable.— The French cable was landed on Wednesday, and a message sent to the Emperor Napo leon. The American terminus will be at Rouse's Hummock, in the town of Duxbu ry, Mass. This is situated near the Gur net light, at the entrance of Plymouth Harbor. It is not quite two miles from the village, but to reach it requires a jaunt of six miles round the beach. The hummock is a conical-shaped hill of about thirty or forty acres in area. The Legis lature of Massachusetts have granted a charter to an "Ocean Telegraph Compa ny," who will carry a line out beyond the jurisdiction of the United States, and then make a splice with the French cable; thus, any trouble which might have been caused by Hoar's absurd letter will be avoided. The main office will be in the old Bunk building at Duxburv. An independent land line will extend from this to Boston, and perhaps a second to New York. For merly, Duxbury was one of the first ship building towns of Massachusetts. In 1837 a severe blow was received during the panic, and six years subsequently, the large clipper trade having commenced, and suitable timber not being found in Duxbu ry, the builders removed to Boston and The office in Duxbury will be in charge of M.

Editor of Middletown Transcript, Sir:— Among the numerous sources of improvement and advancement going on in our great progressive country, there are few more interesting to every family than that of the higher grade of female ed ucation. This subject has enlisted the talent of the ablest minds, and we have now many Institu tions of Learning established, on os liberal a plan for young ladies, ns for young gentlemen ; and why should it not be? The high and increasing importunée of well educated mothers is demon strated beyond cavil ; the ability of the female sex, if truined aright from cnrly èhildhood, is un questionable ; but is is only in a few instances that we find regular colleges organized and a course of study for Degrees established expressly for females. With these views of education I was especially gratified by a visit while in Balti to the Baltimore Female College established. I believe, in 1849, by Nathan C. Brooks, LL. I). This Institution confers three different degrees— Mistress of English Literature; or M. E. L. Ar tium Buccalnurea, or A.B.and Artium Magistra, or A. M. It has a fine saloon for general study and school work, six or eight recitation rooms, a well filled library, cabinet of coins and minerals, lecture room with scientific apparatus, and tinguished faculty of ten Professors in addition to its learned President. At the last Commencement, held in the fine theatre of the Concordia, I was pleased to see that Miss Louise McCrone, of Middletown, Del. received a beautiful silver medal for Deportment. She was also in every chorus, having a line voice, and added much to the effect of the pieces. The music generally was very creditable to the Insti tution, ns well as the theses of the graduates. Miss Arcadia D. Trimble, of Philadelphia, took the Degree of M. E. L. and sang with good effect, with guitar accompaniment, "The lass o' Cow rie." Her thesis, " Life's Battle-Fields," was a good thing and well rendered ; as was also a du ett with Miss Rosa Bushell of Bladensburg, Md. "Queen of the Harvest Valse." more dis There were ten graduates this year, fiveofwhom read interesting pa|iers on subjects very suitable for sucli occasions, and fourteen pieces of vocal or instrumental music (lerformed, the luteness of the hour compelling the omission of some. Besides the gradoating medals, there were 17 others, struck at the U. S. Mint, conferred for excellence in different departments of the curriculum of the Cojlegc. The Commencement was a very interesting aud successful one, and I trust this valuable school will meet with increased auicouragement, being fully convinced that it will be time and money well spent, to sny of our daughters who may en ter its walls with a determination to remain until graduation. Youre, Ac. T. L. L. Ncarly one -third of tho Republican pa pers iu the country have already become disgusted with Grant. His depth, wis dom, and semi-eternai profundity is too much for them, Alus, poor President ! He went in with a little opposition ; he will go ont with none at all.— Romerou's Democrat. LOCAL.

If our peach growers could secure some of Col. Plowden's variety, which mature four teen days iu advance of Hale's Early, would make quite a difference in their ac counts, as the earliest peaches command the highest prices. Can't our friend of tho St. Mury's Beacon, give us some in formation of this early variety ? In the matter of the interference with Foster's Phosphate Attachment, in the Supremo Court of the United States, the patent lias been awarded to Dr. Hamilton, of Odessa.

Berea, Ohio, July 9, 1869. Mr. Vandekford, Dear Sir : — As my business has called me to this " City of Grindstones and huge Stone Quarries," for a few days, and having a portion of each day to while away, the desire to spend such pleasantly led me to attempt to interest tho readers of your valuable sheet by describing the modus operandi of making grindstones, aud whence they most ly come ; yet the idea of one supposing that anything interesting could be said of grindstoues almost deters one from at tempting such a subject, more especially since my knowledge of the "beauties of description" is so contracted. My infor mation concerning the early history of these mines was obtained through the kindness of Mr. Curtiss, the gentlemanly reporter of the Cincinnati Gazette. Berea has long been known as the loca tion of the German Wallace College and the Baldwin University, cither of which is sufficient to give the town a position of importance in Northern Ohio, but its grindstones make it known in business cir cles as the emporium of sharpening mater ial. Tho quality of the stones was first dis covered in 1830, by John Baldwin, a man of many eccentricities but of some excel lent qualities. For the first two years he employed two men to cut stone in his cel lar, aud the stone were sent to Canada to find a market. present method of turning stone, first efforts produced very indifférant stones, but success finally crowned their efforts and the business has increased until it employs a thousand men and over a mil lion dollars capital. During tho time from six in the morning until six in the evening the quarries present a busy scene and resound with the music of picks, ham mers, sledges, and drills, with derricks, tramways and blacksmithshops almost in numerable. The amouut of building stone, flagging, shauls, and grindstones, carried from these quarries is immense, averaging 50 car loads per day. From the different manufacturers I have learned the amount of grindstones turned out last year ; it is almost fabulous—ten thousand tons ! The stones vary in size from four pounds to fi thousand pounds. The process of facturing is not very difficult, yet it re quires skill to make a perfect grindstone. In the quarry, the stone is broken accord ing to the size of the stone required ; the block is then turned on its edge and with wedges is split with the grain of the stone, as easily and ns smoothly as ono can split a stick of pine ; the corners of the stone arc then rounded off and the stone is ready for the eye. Now comes the fulfillment of the old proverb, "sharp enough to through a grindstone when there is an eye in it." The turner now fastens it with rings and keys to the mandril and sets it to revolving. The process of turning is rough and hard but requires considerable skill to give a symmetrical form to the stone. The fine grit flying from the stone impalpable dust—is productive of the grit consumption. Formerly the average life of a turner was fi_ve years : lately a fan line been invented, enclosed in a drum, by which the dust is carried away- and pure air supplied, and turning is not now sidered so unhealthy. The upturned and disturbed condition of Berea presents any thing but an attractive appearance. One cannot build a house with any surety of remaining in it, for where elegant sions stood a year ago large quarries now opened. Even the graves of the dead arc not left undisturbed : already have the dead in one cemetery been re moved and now they are agitating the question of moving them again, for here in this great West everything must give way to the decision of business and enter prise.

Mr. Baldwin invented the Their now ma nu -illl con man Sam Patch.— We are informed that Sam Patch who was killed in his great leap at Niagara Falls, about thirty years ago, was horq ip Christiana Hundred. John Higgins, of this city knew him well. His name was Samuel Hastings, and owing to the fact that Mb cloth wero much patched, he, was given the name of Sam Patch. His first leap was from tho wire bridge that formerly span ned the Brandywine, immediately below the Henry Clay factory. He afterwards made several daring leaps, and growing bold from his success, he was induced to make tho great leap which terminated in his death .—^Delaware Republican, 1 I The Virginia Election. —The election ordered in Virginia on the 6th instant has resulted in the triumph of the entire Wal ker Conservative State ticket by 40,000 ma jority over Wells, Radical.
