OF TI1E TMPERANCE REFORM. 327 -A'JSilliaa of Biblsi fir CUaa."""" ' The astonishing chaftgea transpiring 'Mn China are srradually but effectually " assuming a shape which creates a deep . .nntorest, and will justly the cpmmanco- meat of some practical effort- on the art of Christiana, to take advantage ;' of thern, ; Though;' our knowledge of facts partakes of much vagueness, f there is h longer room to doubt that " the 1 extinction of ,the old Tartar dy - nasty is at hand, and that the future rulers of China will inaugurate fiew ooinnaeroial and social relations with - th other nations of thi world, "from which she has been so long , and so . effectually secluded. Whatever credit we may attach to the professions of v msurgenis au&iuus iu , (jnjyiuai.u me favor of foreigners, whose active in tervention they may yet need, there will be motives enough of policy to leave no room for doubt that the new empire, if it shall ever become an em pire, will act upon far more liberal " principles, and that intercourse with China will henceforth become easier. There is reason to believe,' also after 'Jail reasonable deductions on the score . -of ignorance or deceit, that the lead ' ; era, at least, of the insurrection, are i' favorably disposed toward , Christian 's Hy. The books which have been ob tained from them evince an extraor dinary familiarity with the Old Testa ment, and with some of the leading facts of the New; while their moral precepts, liturgical forms and other ' writings, discover a grade of Christian morality that would scarcely dishonor the teachings of a Protestant Chris tian school. They are evidently not ' Papists, and the whole moral appear ance of the movement is as unlike what might be expected from the in- . flue nee of Jesuits as possible. They are everywhere and earnestly icon oclasts; images and idols and devo tional paintings share their liveliest abhorrence a feature which Roman sm , never having learned itself, would pot not be likely to teach a barbarious neople. They profess the utmost friendship to Protestant missionaries, and certainly have permitted them a freedom of access, and given them a fullness of statement as to belief and intentions, that would have been ex traordinary, without , some previous re-possessions. Rev. Charles Tay or, a Methodist clergyman from this country, was received with cordiality by the "Arranger of the Forces" at Cuing Keang, , expressly upon the ground that he was a "fellow-worshipper of God, and a brother," al though, being followed unfortunately by some hostile Imperialist vessels, his visit was not without suspicious inciSents, whioh might have justified i a far different reception. 1 here would seem to be something deeper than i policy in- such conduct, and some thing to give plausibility to the story that the great leader of this insurrec tion was himself a convert of the cel ebrated Chinese missionary," Leang Afa, and was formerly connected with the mission at Canton, and under the leaching of the Rev. Mr. Roberts, a Baptist missionary from this country. Though it cannot be said that his knowledge of the New Testament does much honor to a missionary teacher, it may still be true, and is al together probable that portions of the Scriptures issued by the missionaries, "have contributed to form the religious opinions and let us hope faith of this important map. It is an additional indication that the rebels wage war . against opium, the great foe of the Chi- i naman; observe carefully tne Afins- dan Sabbath; proscribe all , immoral and obscene language in the camp; and in their martial progress through the country, they have practically ex emplified justice, discretion and mercy, not unworthy a genuine Christian profession. , . ' v . With such promising incidents, it is not strange that this great event awa kens a new hope' for the Christianiza tion of China, i No such imposing and comprehensive movement , was ever before known, and thus far it U altogether ,in thej direction wo would desire. In England, a long and fer-t vid Appeal has just been issued by the venerable John Angell James callipg upon British Christians tc cre ate a fund for the immediate prepara tion of One Million of Copies of the Chinese New Testament, t lie propo ses that all denominations shall . unite in the fund, and for this purpose that it be kept distinct 'from all: existing agencies, lie estimates the ccst of such an undertaking to be something less than $80,000,, and thinks t!iat they could be wisely distributed, as fast as they could be conveyed ther e, by the missionaries now there, or wb o weald bo attracted there. Women in China. , . Woman is in a more degraded posi tion in China than in any other part of the globe and her humiliation is rendered more conspicuous by the ex tent to which civilization and educa tion have been carried in the empire. in no ranks is she regarded as the companion of man, but is treated sole ly as the slave of his caDride and pas sions. Even amongst the females of the highest ranks, few are found who can read or .write: their education is confined to the art of embroidery, playing on a horrid three stringed guitar, and singing; but the obligation of obedience to man is early inculca ted, and the great portion of their time is spent in smoking an 1 playing at cards. ; The women of the poorer classes have no education, and can be considered but little better than beasts of burden. A man of that rank will walk deliberately by his wife's side, while she totters on, yoked to a plow, while her husband guides it! Those of the lower classes who are good looking, according to Chinese ideas of beauty, are purchased by the rich at about twelve or fourteen years, for con cubines, and then instructed according to their master's wishes, The Chinese cannot at all compre hend the European mode of treating ladies with respect and deference, and being naturally superstitious attribute to devilish arts practised by the fair sex, the just appreciation we entertain c . l l ; . -1 . .i i in meir vuiue, m snort tney consider European ladies have an influence somewhat similar to that ascribed to an evil eye by Italian superstition. Chinese domestics have great objec tion to live in a European family, over which a lady presides, and a tradition of theirs coincides with their' super stition about our females That China should never be conquered until a wo man reigned in the tar West. Some say that this prophecy ' was never heard until they wero conquered by the army of Queen . Victoria. , Be this as it may, they all contend that it is to be found in some of their oldest works.
