China appears to bo'juet now somewhat; in the state of mind of the Irishman at Dounyhrook fair, who wanted some one to tread on his coat fairs that he might have a taste of a scrimmage. Not content with recent outrages at Chin Kiaug, for which, however, the authorities have made some kind of apology, the Chinese officials have got up a difficulty with Spain in relation to the traffic in Coolies, and rt contest with the United States Consul General, nt Shnnghue, in refer? ence to the manner in which he exercised his official functions in a recent case that came before him for examination and settlement. In the meantime, Chinese smugglers are invading the rights of citizens of other countries, and the home authorities will not move in the matter to enforce their authority. In addition to these misunderstandings with other nations, China has n half-covered quar? rel with England, which may produce serious results at any moment, ltussia also sits like a vulture on the Northern borders of the Chinese Empire, waiting for the proper moment to swoop down and fix her talons in the body of her victim. Thus menaced from all quar? ters, and with an open rebellion among a portion of her producing population, the motto of China should be peace. She is in no condition to provoke quar? rels with other nations with safety to her national position among the powers of Asia. That continent will shortly be the theatre of most important events. The current of European action is moving in that direction, and Central Asia may soon resound with the clash of arms. If that day comes the great wall of China will not hold back the contestants, as it once did the lightly clad and poorly armed Tartar hordes. It is truly wonderful, the variety and ingenuity of the conveniences for the desk and office?pens of varied patterns, inkstands possessing unmberless ad? vantages, letter files, each ono the best, cnvelopesjof sizo and qualities infinite. It is almost bewildering to enter the large Broad street store of Walker, Evans & Cogswell, in Charleston, and see the number of tbeso attractions. Here you find the largest stationery stock South of Baltimore, and you only have two troubles?first, sufficient cash; and, second, the difficulty in deciding among the many things oller? d, each equally suitable to your wants.

IS new brand of CIGARS, when once known to Smokers, will certainly have the effect of a THUNDERBOLT, striking right square into the Cigar Trade, and, like the Havana Tips, start? ling the smoking community.

Some? times the pain is in the shoulder, and is mistaken for rheumatism. The stomach is affected with loss of appetite and sick? ness, bowels in general costive, and sometimes alternating with lax. The head is troubled with pain, and dull, heavy sensation, considerable loss of memory, accompanied with painful sen? sation of having left undone something which ought to have been done. Often complaining of weakness, debility and low spirits. Sometimes many of the above symptoms attend the disensc, r.nd at other times, very few of them; but the Liver is generally the organ most in? volved.
