? Wk have received a very caustic review of the
Public School articles that have appeared as
communications in our paper. ' The review has
merit, and evinces a considerable knowledge of
the subject under consideration, but is too per
sonal for' any good results.. We would be
honor-bound to give the author criticised space
for reply, and we have no dcsiro to see the sub
ject protracted further.
Tub anticipated opening of the Chinese war
is regarded, as we perceive by glancing over
the late London papers, .with totally different
aentiments by the two nations who are to be
allied in it In France it bids fair to be a pop
ular movement Partly, as we "infer from the
tone of the Paris letter-writers, because an alli
ance with England in a foreign war would pre
vent the rumored rupture with her at home.
The English, on the other hand, geom to doubt
the present strength of their government, to
carry on successfully so distant and disastrously
expensive a campaign. No surer proof of thii#
doubt need be given than that of the sudden
fall of consols the morning the news of the
action at Peiho reached London. That is the
infallible tost of the British pulse. The war,
however, having been began?whether by acci
dent on the part of the Chinese Emperor, or
design on the part of the English Ministry?
will be followed up by Britain for her ad
vantage. She cannot stop short of vigorous'
measures now. A glance at the position of
China during . the past few years with
regard to foreign powers, will show why
such a step on the part of England is im-1
peratively necessary if she would render'
the foothold she has gii >ed in that part o'
the East profitable to herself in future. Thus
far, it has been a source of loss and in this way:
Estimating the Chinese by the nerveless effemin
ate Hondoos, from whose weak hands she had 80
easily grasped their every source of wealth,
England, some ye>rs past, forced a passage into
the ports of China and compelled a trade. They
yielded, to Hnd themselves, after this length o.'
time had elapsed, the gainers, by their quiet
but stubborn refusal to receive as imports
British manufactures in lieu of British spccic.
For the tea and silk sent to England, the opium
was but a partial equivalent. Consequently
Chinese trade has slowly drained into its own
channel the English silvor to an extent which
has but lately become apparent. Yet so heavy
has been this drain that'an English paper alleges
that "had it not been for the profuse production
of gold, in the past few years, it would havo
proved ruinous to the country. Over five hun
dred millions of specie have been sent by Eng
land, during the last ten years, to the East, for
which she has received only perishable imports."
Looking at the matter in this mercantile light,
no one can wonder that England and France, U
they trade with China at all, shall try to force
her to trade upon a more equal basis.
Their success even in this is problematical.
We cannot but think England has always under
rated the inherent strength of resistance lying
dormant in China. On such a subject all pro
phecies as to the result, are, of course, vaguest
speculation. Yet, founding such speculation
upon the little that is known of Chinese temper
and action^ we believe that England, with all
her force and skill, will be baffled at last.?
Popular tradition personifies the vast empire of
the East as a figure, something like a bowing
Mandarin, tea:drinking, cowardly, decked out in
silken frippery, with a gait as unsteady as a
Chinese woman, frightening his enemies away
with painted goblins and monsters. But what
is the reality? The absurdities which struck
the English eye on their first inroad into China,,
their wooden dragons and childish devices wore
but the effects of a seclusion from the world of
age3, and proved no want of latent power.?
The very fact of this seclusion, and its inviolate
preservation for thousands of years, argues an
inward strength. The man who can keep his
own secret is no fool. Nor was the self-chosen
prison a hiding place of idleness. The Chinese
nature is not a sleepy one; it is always intensely
alive. No nation in existence is more thorough
ly cultivated physically and mentally. In east
ern China, says a botanist, so denso is the pop
ulation, and so minute the tillage, that not one
plant can be found which is not of artiGcinl
growth. The same remark might illustrate ev
ery branch of Chinese industry. No atom of
matter or mind goes to waste. Not even the
famous Prussian system of education is half so
thorough or complete as that of China. Under
laying this indefatigable industry and ingenuity
which has alieady passed into a proverb, we
find another trait of character which never fails
to give force of character to a man or to a na
tion, vie: a tough obstinacy, combined with an
unconquerable sell-esteem. Believing them
selves the .actual children of the gods, and all
other nations barbarians, for the space of four
thousand years, these comfortable traits of
character have had, we think, ample time to take
rootan'd bear fruit,and to take root too deeply,and
bear fruit too long for English force to conquer.
And to all these essentials of successful power
of .resistance, add the fierce blood of the Tartar
element, which is mingled so closely with the
meeker flow of the Chinese, and we think our
supposition will not seem unreasonable, that the
English under-rate their foe. The late affray at
Peiho proves us correct, and shows the Chinese
aptness in adapting and their courage in using
the very tools of their enemies against them
selves. What the future of China may be is

Wh are very, glad," Indeed, to hare it in our
power to call attention,to the leader which we
extract from the Richmond 'Whig, this morning
Its greatest merit is the "own up" spirit
which it evinces as having overtaken our good
friends of the Whig. They, like many other
people, before, have found themselves called up
on to make a virtue out of necessity, and to
yield at last the just meed of reparation to those
towards whom they have so long' maintained a.
hostile attitude. The Whig now formally ac
knowledges what wo were all along conscious
it believed, in regard to the Republican party.
Tt no doubt .thought that some good might be
attained, as against the Democracy here, on the
slavery question,:by keeping back this long de
layed acknowledgement, but having gone
; through the wars as the Whig did in the Go
gin compaign, and having learned, so impres
sively ?s it did, that it is all folly to try to un
derbid the Democracy on the nigger question, it
now gives us its eleventh hour confession.
We are glad to see it, however; too glad, to
criticise any of the supposed procuring causes
of it We believe it to express not only the
sincere convictions of the Whig, but of nine
tenths of the reading people south of Mason &
Dixon's line, and believing so, we accept it as if
nothing antagonistic to it had ever appeared in
the same columns. It comes as a recruit to us
here in the Northwest who have had to bear the
burden and heat, as well as the odium of this
position for so long. As we shall most likely
refer frequently to it, we think that it would
be as well for the Times, and Argus (0 make a
note of the whole matter, and either commit it
Ho ^memory, or put it in the crowns of their
"Occasional" writes to the Philadelphia
Press about the "hells" in Washington. He
says "faro, in which the better encounters the
ank isthe prevailing gamo in these saloons,
and although tables are set out, at which what
I i Ca,e<\ kraB> poker,'and other games are
p ayed, the principal fascination is the platform,
covered with green leather, behind which sits
the .mperturable dealer, with his pale face
black eye and monotonous 'call;' while, on three
sides, are gathered, sitting and standing, rank
a ter rank, anxious and excited spectators, who,
breathless with anxiety, watch the little cards
as they are dealt from the tin box, and pick up
their gains, or swallow their losses, with a si
lence only interrupted now and then by an an
gry exclamation or a quiet chuckle of exulta
tion. Night is turned into morning, and the
latter frequently surprises the contestants in
the struggle. It is surprising, in the height of
the season, how much money is lost and won in
a single night A gentleman well acquainted
with the secrets of these resorts tells me that
he has known as much as ten thousand dollm a
to be risked on a single game, and others have
seen two or three thousand dollars hazarded on
, a single card and in a single game."
An English paper?the Gateshead Observer?
tells a curious story of an inmate of one of the
workhouses on the Tyne, who on a recent occa.
sion fell into such a state that it was difficult to
say whether he was dead or "dead drunk," and
the opinion of thp doctors having been taken
he was pronounced to bo in the former condi!
tion. He was accordingly carried to the dead
house and preparations were made for his bu
rial. Sunday intervened-therc was divine ser
vice in the workhouse-and the reverend gen
tleman who officiated, having heard of his re
moval, "improved" the event; but by this time

We presume most of our readers read the ar-'
ticle which we published from the N. Y. Cour
ier, od Saturday morning. Its simultaneous
appearance with the one which we extract from
the Richmond Whig, to-day, is a somewhat
striking coincidence.
In letter and spirit they seem as if one and
the same person might-be the author of both.
Up to last Saturday, the new oyster placer off
Norfolk had yielded 250,000 bushels of oysters,
the average earnings of each man being twenty
dollart a day. This is better than Pike's Peak.
It is estimated that the "placer" cannot bo ex
hausted in five years. The origin of the bed is
supposed to be the wreck of n Connecticut
schooner with a deck load of thirty bushels of
"seedling oysters" on the spot 18 years.ago.

from the Richmond Whlj.] ;
^The Examiner^ycst^rday contained a two
column reply to our article offthe previous day.
tn which we statedras a' well known and indis
putable fact,;that,??so far as:the Black Republi
can party,a dtsUnct political organization, is
concerned, there is no evidence existing of nny
intention on its part, as the Examiner alleges,
to employ any and all means to cxtripate slavery
from the Southern State*, whether by the;bayo
net v of foreign enemies, or . by the torchL andL .
knife of the rebellious negro." We added-that'
"no .sucb purpose bad 'evei^ been signified by :
the Republican party,' and no such' threat ever
made, nor do we believe that any such purpose
has ever been, or ^veV^iltrb^'entertained by it,
or that any such KiUy ihreat' towards the South
will ever escape its lips."
The Exaihiner, we think, Is singularly unfor
tunate in the mode of reasoning it employs, to
show the-Republicans', as a party; propose to
themselves "to extirpate slavery from the Sou
'thern States" by violent means.' It overlooks
entirely the National and State'platforms of the
Republicans, in none of which can be found a
single sentence, line, word, or syllable, remotely
squinting! towards Congressional,,or Executive
interference with slavery .Tn the States where it
exists. Their platform of principles, as put
forth by the Philadelphia Convention, which'
nominated Fremont, has been read and re-read
by the Examiner and the Whole Southern peo
ple. Is there any thing in that platform look-*
ing to the abolition of slavery in the Southern
States? Will the Examiner assert that there
is.? The respective State platforms of the Re
publican party have been, also, perused by the
Examiner and the whole Southern people. Is
there any^ thing in any of those platforms,
which indicates a purpose or conveys a threat
on the part of the Republican party, "to employ
any and all means to extiipate slavery from the
Southern States, whether by bayor.et of foreign
enemies,or by the torch and knife of the rebel
lious negro? Will the Examiner assert that
there is? ?
We affirm that there is not a word in either
the National or the State platforms of the Re
publican party, which can bo tortured by any
ingenuity of construction into shadowing forth
the idea of a purpose on their part to interfere
with slavery in the States where it exists. And
if there be nothing in any of these numerous
ar.d repeatedly adopted platforms looking to
such interference, is it not just and reasonable
to infer that no such design is harbored, in the
breasts of the Republicans, as a party ? Is- it
not incredible even to presume any such folly
and madness on the part of a large body of
reflecting, intelligent, shrewd men, no matter
what their horror of slavery may be? We
submit that the Examiner has signally failed in
its efforts to sustaiu its broad and sweep
in charge against the. Republican party.?
We submit, too, that it will fail much more
signally in its mischievious endeavor to till
tlio minds of the Southern people with needless
apprehensions of a violent uttack on their insti
tutions by the Republicans of the North. We
feel it our duty to whisper in the ear of the
Examiner that it is sadly mistaken in suppo
sing the Southern people to be fools and igno
ramuses, and in taking for granted, therefore,
that it can easily induce them to believe that
the Republican party meditate the violent ?over>
throw of slavery in the Southern States. It is
equally mistaken in supposing that the great
mass of the Southern people are not as familiar
with the principles, purposes and designs of the
Republican party as itself is. Being able to
read, and being in the habit of reading, they
have long since acquainted themselves with the
fact that there is nothing in the world in the
teachings and avowals of the Republicans, as a
party, which indicates the atrocious Abolition
intent which the Ezaminer, obviously for party
purposes, imputes to them.
But, overlooking and pns-ing by the National
and State platforms d the Republicans, the
Examiner turns itsattention to the declarations
of soine of the Republican leaders, and cluims
to have found in those declarations positive and
convincing proof that the Republican party is
committed to the idea of "employing any and
all means to extirpate slavery from the Southern
States, whether by the bayonets of foreign ene.
mies, or by the torch and knife of the iebcK
lious negro.'| It quotes, 111 the first place, the
"irrepressible conflict" declaration of Seward,
with which our readers are alreudv familiar,
and argues that that is an evidence of the pur
pose it attributes to the Republican party?
when, in fact, it professes to be only an opinion
?a belief?011 the part of Seward himself, that
Slavery and Freedom cannot exist together.-?
And yet, in that same speech, is found the ems
phatic declaration of Seward, that as much as
he desires the abolition of -slaverv in the Sou
thern States, he docs not expect-or hope for
such a result, '?except through the action, of the
people of^ the Slate States, and in conformity
with their respective Constitutions"?and which
declaration, in the Emminer't opinion, amounts
to nothing at all. It quotes extracts, also, from
the anti-slavery harangues of Lincoln, Sumne'r,
W ilson, Wade, and Banks, all of' whicW,""we ad
mit, attest their hatred of slavery, but not one
of which shows that either of those men pro
pose or desire "to extirpate slavery from the
Southern States" by violent means. Least of
all do they shew that the Republicans, as a
party, entertain any such design.
From the statement of Mr. Collins, consular
agent at Amoor river, in Asiatic Russia, it ap
pears that American commerce at tho Ainoor
is steadily increasing. Five American built
steamers are now plying on its waters, which
are navigable for steamboats 2,&00 miles. The
commercial products of that region at present
consists principally of furs and minerals, but
it is thought that when navigat on shall have
developed the internal resources of the country,
trade will be proportionably increased. From
Moscow to the head of tho Amoor are upwards !
of five hundred cities, towns, and villages.
