Tho »treat of the Chinos« army from
Korea without having made any great
show of resistance has set ait the mili
tary tneu guessing. No one can toll why
the emperor should allow tbo seat of
war to lie transferred to his own do
wafà It will be seen at a glance that
for the purpose of fighting Korea i» far
better than the Chinese frontier. In the
face of all this and for no apparent rea
son the troops of the emperor have been
withdrawn, and the Japanese have been
allowed to mass their ar mies ou the pen
insula which oomposeB Korea.
If a story which oarne ont today is
true, all" the slighting things said of tho
Celestials and their leaders will have to
he withdraw!). What is apparently the
most flagrant piece of military mis
management may bo a stroke of genius
which will set the achievements of all
tho great tacticians of history far into
The plot, as declared by several mi
nor officials, is iu substance as follows:
All the troops, agents and sympathisers
of tho Chinese are to be withdrawn
from the peninsula of Korea. This is
an invitation for the Japanese to greatly
augment their armies upon the peninsu
la preparatory to a bold march into Chi
na. Ho far the plan has worked to per
fection, Aud now there only remains
the greatest oonp ever attempted in any
age. The plan is to out a deep trench
entirely across tho isthmus connecting
Korea to the mainland of Asia and to
the Chinese empire. Tho structure of
the point of laud is a heavy layer ef
shale, resting upon bedrock. At every
point where the Cbiueso army of ooou
patiou has camped, it is alleged, holes
have been drilled, and immense quanti
ties of lubricating oils have been foi
down upon the surface of tho bedrock.^
As the various divisions have slowly re-'
As soon m **w Japanese are tni
ipou the pm Yja tho function of tin
tench -wilftuo tuada evident. It will
mt down to bedrock, aud a large quan
iity of dry timber will be tightly!
edged in. Above that at a little height
bars will bo plaoed. The timber!
__ is one borrowed from the Egyptians
their operations hy which the obelisks
■ere o»t out in single immense blocks
fater will ire poured in, and the timber
ill swell, exerting a powerful pressure.
fn .ii, by means of elcoirio appliances
the iron bars or blocks will be quiokly
heated to a high temperature and thero
hy expand, adding greatly to the foroe
which the swelling timbers will be pot
ting forth. Last of all, the entire Chi
nese army will ho set to work in the
trench, which will he hundreds of miles
long. Each man will be armed with a
powerful hydraulic jaok, which he
will operate wheu tho iron and wood
are getting iu their best work.
The bedrock slopes seaward, ami
the result may be better imagined than
described. The shale, having been
thoroughly lubricated, will slip with
comparative ease on the smooth surface
of the Dock, so think the Chinese engi
neers. Thus, when the millious of tons
of pressure is brought to hear, tho en
tire peninsula is expected to start slow
ly on its foundations. Then, as the great
mass gathers headway like u launching
ship, It will increase its speed and final
ly dash into the Japan sea.
Instant and oepuplcte destruction will
fall upon the armies of the mikado as
Weil as upon every man, woman and
child in Korea. Nothing in the way of
annihilation can compare with this ex
eept perhaps the fate of Fharaoh's army
iu the Hed sen.
The immediate effect upon the Japan
sea oan scarcely he imagined. The Chi
nese warships will have boon withdrawn
to some safe haven, aud the total de
struction of nearly all of Japan's navy
The tidal wave is expect* ' .aast

will probably pour over the islunds and
sweep them of every vestige of
and vegetable life.
This may sound like tho dream of an
insane man, aud iu ordor to carry
weight with it your correspondent had
tho affidavits of his informants duly
prepared. Unfortunately, however, the
Chinese notaries have a seal nearly four
inches iu diameter, so when an attempt
was made to cable the affidavits they
stuck, as the cable is only 8jg inches
through.—Loo-Juc bpeolaj to Cleveland

Tho Nicaragua Caual is now claiming
the attention of both houaea of cougreau,
and will be the order of the tla.y in Wash
ington until! Ilually disposed of. The
prospect, therefore, for some definite ac
tion this session by congress, looking to
the resumption of work on the canal, is
good. One of the arguments which has
attracted the most attention and won
the most favor for the bill before con
gress is the showing that thecaual would
bring the United »States into quite eU»se
communication with the great consuming
markets of the Orient, thus placing
American markets iu a position Jo com
pete apccessfolly with Europe for the
trade of the east. %
To us of the south, the most interesting
•base of the subject is in the vast pow
libilitics that the completion of the
icaragua Cunai would open tip for the
xteusion of the cotton trade. In a bit
er written in «January, 18ffH, on this sub
loct, Mr. Henry (l Hester, secretary
the local Cotton Exchange, furnished
ojme valuable statistics which demon
|itrale to what optent the cotton industry
f the south is ssteoptihle of being bene
■ted by the completion of the canal
These facts aud figures, thoughpubliffiied
learly two years ego, are even more
tiongly applicable now than they were
lo the letter referred to, Mr. I luster
tawed that Great Britain annually ex
torted manufactures from cotton umonnt
tug in value to mose than'«30d,000,(«K),
exclusive of *4(1,000,000 wintb of thread,
hosiery, luce- und the like. * Of this vast
foreign trade, upwards of #170,000,000
worth are annually shipped to British
East India, China, JapaOj Javf and
other Oriental countries. In the year iu
which the letter was written the United
States exported to Great Britain saw
cuttou to the value of »boot 1170,000,000.
it will thus bo seen that Great Britain
exported to the east cottou goods of
about the same value as tho raw cotton
imported from the United States.
The export trade of the United Btutes
to the east is comparatively insignifi
cant. the total for tho year 1891, a good
year, having been only #43,800,000, in
cluding all articles. Of cotton y ends
aloue, (he total exports were #8,787,000,
of considerably less than a twentieth of
the exports of cotton goods to the east
hy Great Britain,
It is clear that the vast htilk of tho
cotton goods exported to tho Orient by
Great Britain, uofjily all of which are
muuutuctuicil from raw cotton pur
chased in the United Mates, should, iu
the pâturai order of things, have been
manufactured and exported by the
United States, As the southern states
produce the raw cotton, they should also
manufacture if into good», aud thus save
the cost of shipment to the Lancashire

The b|iiiding of the Nicaragua Canal
would bring New Orleans ami : lie other
southern seaports many thousands of
miles closer to the markets of tii« Orient
than ate the British mills at Manches
tor. That cottou goods eau he uianufuc
tored as cheaply in the south as iu any
place else in the world is certain, hence,
a-ith a convenient outlet to the great
consuming markets, us would ha fur

upon the increase of women riders in
England who ride on the off side of
their horses. Tho English womnn has

said that already the sight is sufficient

to arouse comment, and though it still
looks odd "and not thoroughbred, you
know," its cauao of being isaeustble
t-nough to procure sanction for it. Ao
