productions, we Whore, contribute fully
at much to the sustenance of the natives
as do the fruits ol the earth—rice, per
haps, excepted. One of their productions
has a value which is not confined to the
spot, but extends to us-to our
prise, and our trade—we mean the whale,
or, as they call it, kudsuri. There is

made by the Japanese, both for rich and

particularly in the sea Keumano,

Niphon, the most important territory ot
the empire and it also prevails the
islands of Tsussima and Gotto, and upon
the coasts of Oraura and Nomo. These
whales not only afford oil in great abun
dance, but their flesh, which is consider*
ed very wholesome and nutritious, is
largely consumed. No part of them, in
able to some useful purpose or another,

verted to innumerable uses—all is made
available to purposes of profit. Wo have
gone into these few particulars respect
ing the whale, because it ia that which
has brought our countrymen into contact
with Japan. Many of our ships have for
some considerable time past frequented
those seas for capturing the whale, an oc
cupation which, it is found, might be pur*
sued with great advantage, undet a com*
mercial treaty with Japan, whose inhn*
man laws at present not only prevent
any assistance being rendered to ship*
wrecked mariners, but expose them to
positive maltreatment, and even to vio
lent death. To obtain redress in this re
spect was the primary object of Commo
dore Perry's expedition.
Japan abounds in natural and artifi
cial productions of great value. Its min
eral riches are enormous, and includes
metals of various kinds, especially gold,
silver and copper. Sulphur and nitre
are also found in large quantities —there
is no want of coal, and there are precious
stones of almost every variety agates,
sapphires, jarspars, cornelians, and even
diamonds while pearls are found in
great plenty amonf? the shells upon the
coast. Then the fertility of the soil is
very great. The mulberry tree grows
extensively and affords food for countless
myriads of silk worms. The Kudsi, or
paper-tree, serves innumerable useful
purposes including the manufactuse of
cloth, stuffs and cordage. The verusi, or
uarnish tree, is another valuable produc
tion of the county, yielding large quanti
ties of a miRcy juice which the natives
employ to varnish, or japan, as we call it,
rarious articles. Then there are the bay
tree, the fig-tree, the cypress-tree, with
very many more, all more or less valua
ble, and from which a great variety of
ttsefut things are made and last, though
not least, there is the tea-shrub, from the
'eaves of which the co.n.non dnuk ol the
people is brewel, and w.iioli is capible

MIMQUTI aad Slavery.
Tho following front the St. Louis Her
ald goes to confirm the opinion that Mis
souri will probably become a free State
within a few years.
"la Misaouri, alarory ia at a stand, if
not retrograding. It may be said with
almost literal truth, that the shareholding
lrnmigratioo of Missouri entirely ceased
throe years a^*. There is now a slave
holding emigration from Missouri. Be
sides, slaves ara constantly being sold to
the south. There are no more slaves in
Missouri to-day than than were three
years ago. The prospect is, that.lea
years hence the number will be greatly
less than it is now.
There are now in the State 700,000
whites, and 97,000 slaves, being more
more than eight freeman to one slave.—
Ten yen re hence, likely enough, thore
will be twenty freeman to one slave.
The anti-slavery feeling is very strong
in Missouri, and the opposition of the in
stitution which so depresses the enter
prise and checks the prosperity of the
State, anticipate the work of emancipa
tion should Kansas and Nebraska be free.
With the example of free people and ee
territory on all sides except almost stand
still Arkansas, it is thought slavery will
rapidly die out even in the hemp and to
bacco growing regions, the only portions
of Missouri where even now slave labor
is at all profitable, Very few slaves are
in St, Louis, and the proportion of col
ered population appears smaller than in
Cincinnati or our Lake cities.
The state of Missouri embraces a vast
territory with every advantage of fine
climate, rich soil, abundant minerals, and
navigable rivers, and if once free, would
at least keep pace with Illinois and Iowa
in growth and developeinent. But with
the blight of slavery upon her, the best
class of emigrants pass through or shun
her fertile valleys a.id praries, and pro
gressive enterprise feels a dead lock-
Farms in Illinois bring about double the

A great major*? of the peofle of Mis

that crushes theui, and are casting about

tion a desirable work which the rapid set

The fight between Poole an Worrissey
in New York is justly condemned by all
the papers as an outrage upon decorum
which should be severely punished. The
dispute between them arose in a bar
room —an appointment was made to fight
the next morning on Amos street wharl,
at 7 o'clock. Both parties were on the
ground and went at each other directly.
Poole, who is said a be a tremendous
'rough and tumble' fighter, avoided Mor
rissey's first blow, caught him by the leg.
I got him down, and in a few moments had
htm pounded to a jelly. Morrissey pre
sented a shocking spectacle, and scarcely
could any of his friends recognize him.
His eyes were closed, and one of them
was found to be gouged from one end of
the socket which injury will probably sin*
pare his sight for life. There wer* large
bunches on all parts of his head. His
face, above and below the eyes, is black
cned by violent blows given on the bridge
of his nose. There is a hole in his c'teek
and his lips are chawed up in a frightful
manner. He also sustained fearful inju
ries about the breast, arms, and back,
where Poole kicked him with heavy cow
hide boots after he had halloed 'enough.*

At Wilmington* ©slaware, on the
fourth, Mr. Valentine, a member of the
City Council, was arreted for firing
crackers. A despatch snys Valentine
was taken before the Mayor, who was
about to fine hiin. Valentine thereupon
very grossly insulted the Mayor, aud he
was committed to the eel! for contempt.—
This created much feeling among the
parties, and $20,000 bail was refused.
About 11 o'clock friends went to the
house of the Mayor aud undertook to
mob hiia. The Mayor came out with a
pistol iu each hand, and dispersed the
mob alter making several arrests. The
mob handled the Mayor very roughly,
tearing his clothes nearly off". A citixen
offered a thousand dollars to auy set ol

cell by main force. Therein no telling
where the thing may end, as the friends
of Valentine appear determined to carty
