The latest-intelligence from oar Pacific coast reports- thpt a Japanese junk had come ashore on one of the islands of Alaska, with three living Japanese on board.. The vessel had been disabled in a storm off Japan, and had drifted two thousand five hundred miles in nine months, twenty three of the crew perishing from hunger and exposure. This striking Odcurrence is by no means unparalleled. Just forty years ago, a Japanese vessel, with living men on board, came ashore near the mouth i of the Columbia River, in Oregon. It had a cargo of rice, and the crew consequently' had enough to eat, though their only drink was water from occasional rains. Such o currences assist greatly in explaloining s -how America was peopled-a question very perplexing to our ancestors, though late geographical and ethnological researches s show olearly that there is really very little I mystery about it. The Japanese are.evi- o dently of the same race with our Indians, 1 their anl gege being to some extent similar to those of our Weatern tribes; and it is not at all unlikelytbat, dudrlt in _ th-a. ande o utyears to W-lo Japaese history Sbash, maay vessels ma have floate C Sthlr rboes to ours, bearing living a persons of both sexes. p Wo-dCoa say tir lo ' 4i e... -Tay e9- amte.q se 4, or oey.

The Senate has no quorum and it is confidently held by the opponents of War moth that his wilg of the House has not one either. It is true that one day the Senate bad or claimed to have the requis ite number present and passed, bills rspesling the election law and several others of the most outrageous legislative grievances of the State but though the same action was taken by the House and the bills were signed by the Governer and thus took the semblance of laws,nobody dreanms of giving them serious attention as genuine legislation. With such a president as Pinchback for the Senate, and such a quorum of bogus members in the House, Warmoth could easily take the credit of signing bills which he knows will not be laws. We can see no immediate prospect of an end to the embroglio. If the Congressional Committee comes here, perhaps something definite will be done. They may be able to atch up a peace between the two fac tions, but we are of opinion that Grant is not a patching up man. We think that he will fight it ofut on the same line and that Warmoth will spend the suwnmer in a -cooler climate than Louisiana.

A native of this country, his early associa ,, tions and general acquaintanee gave him D advantages not enjoyed by many of the I prelates in realching certain dlaes of Americans. His elegant address and fin I ished education were by no means lost In the high sphere of action to which he was called and the splendid talent for oratory Iwhich, distingulishbed him from his earli er years combined with all the rest to ex tend bhis influence and make him a tower of strength for the Catholic cause. Before embracing the clerical profession, Bishop MeGill had been for a short time a pratising lawyer in this city and, we be lieve, in Kentncky also. Some three or four years ago we were favored with his presence in New Orleans during a short stay and oui publio still remember vividly the impression made upon them by his noble eloquenece and fanulties diction in publio discourses. Man-- M diremet6~r the nobility of his nature, and in his every act, and under eversy kind of eJroaumstances, give proof that he remembeir it.
