How to Capture and Keep a Prisoner.
Some time since the "notorious Bill

be uninteresting to give you suneofijnrm
my experiences during the past week or

Last week, Monday, the Rev. Mr. Holt:
ami inrself. slartml nirin nnr l,mt fmm !
Editor JornNAL. It having been
suggested by frieivln at home, that I oc-jall
'carwioually write a few words for the f
Journal, I propose to tike up with the!
proposition, at luast so iar as to make a
wgumiug, rust assuring your rraili
that I never looked iipon newspaper cor-,
w U v

gin this letter seated in what b here
called a "house-boat," sometimes to dis-i
tingiiisU it from 'other craft s which carry
passengers of froilit, this one being es-1

j.Shanglii, having first rolled up a few
comfortables, eet., for bedding, and hav -
imr taken n ,'. 1,mve .f lv..l' .,l
some nee and a few iioinuls of ment to
eat on the way. Our boat is worked by
four chinamen, who roceive about fifteen
cents a day, per man. and board theni-
selves. On the way up, as tltere was a
fair wiuJi they had nothing to do but,
hoist the sails and "hold tho strings," as
they say, uutil we reached Soochow,
which was just 21 hours after we started.
auais uore ruu tnrougu tlie country,
very much as horse rojwis do at home, i
except that most of the canals are very
crooked. .The one Ve went over was
100 feet wide or more most of the way,
and is a beautiful , stream. One- littlo
circumstance on our way up, was rather
amusing some, perhaps,, wonlylliaye
called it trying, .but .we only, laughed
about it, and that was, we had come off
without spoon, kuife or fork,; and Iv-d to
work np our beef-steak and bread and
stir our coffee with our pocket knives,
We -could have formed "chop-BticUs,"
but these would not have helped ma ttori
much. ' We were able to supply our
selves as soon as we arrived in Sooehow.
As soon as we came inside the gutes of
the city, we began to be greeted every
where with the cry of "Foreign duvil,"
that being the common term by which
all foreigners are designated in China.
We hear it so continually, that we usu
ally pay no heed to it. Having moored
our boat inside the city, we left it, and
went to see some cluueese friends, to let
them know that wo wanted to rent a
house. Next day we started out our
selves, and walked four or five hours,
noticing all the houses tliat had "to
rent" upon them, and enquiring about
them when they looked at all habitable.
At noon, being for away from the boat,
where our eatables were, we went into a
chuieese cook shop and called for chick
eu and a sort of noodle soup, made by
rolling out dough very thiu and cutting
it up into very fine long strips, and then
boiling. With only a pair of chop
sticks, it is quite a feat to get these
noodles into your mouth. It was Mr.
Holt's first attempt, and ho only suc-J
cceded with part of his bowl full. For
myself, who had often done the like bo-
fore, it was not so much of a task, and
being hungry, I readily disposed of
what I had, but not until we had fur
nished many a laugh to the crowd who
gathered round. In time, I said said to
them in jest, "now that we have afforded
you so much amusement by eating be
fore you, you ought to foot the bill," at
which they all laughed most heartily.
The whole "bill" for two, including tea,
was about eight and a half cents.
Beginning our walk, we . at length
came upon a house that seemed quite
suited to our purposes, being two stories
high, and just built. Then came the
question, "would tho owner be willing
to rent to foreignersi" We went to a
chineeso friend and asked liini to go and
see for us. This is always the rule in
China, never do anything of this kind
yourself, bnt go to a third party who acts
as a "go-between." The landlord upon
being applied to, said he must have two
days in which to consult with his broth
ers and friends, before letting us know.
At length he sent word that he was wil
ling, but his terms were so unreasonable
that we had to give up tho place,
Ihero is an amount of machinery
requisite about renting a chineese house;
which, to au American is almost horrify
ing. In America, Mr. A. says to Mr. B.
"I want to rent your house." "All
right," says Mr. B., "you can have it
for so much per montb," and Mr. A,, if
satisfied with the terms, goes and lives
in the house, and nothing more is nec
essary but tho payment of the rent. In
China, however, it is diffioreut. First,
au amount varying from 30 to 40 dollars
up to 200, must be deposited with the
landlord as security money, security that
the tenant will faithfully pay hia rent.
This is all to be paid back whenever said
tomuit loaves, provided he has paid all
his rent. Then there aro the fees of
two "go-betweau's," one on our side and
the other ou the landlord's side. These
vary from a few dollars up to a hundred.
Thirdly, you must furnish some proper
ty holder as your socurity, (aside from
the deposit money,) and unless you are
fortunate enough to have some friend in
"go-bet weens" about 21 dollars. Se
