adventures since the war. As usual, General Sheridan is frank and friendly, laughing merrily at the fears which people express of him, and showing me the nature and extent of his commission in the South. For military purposes, America is divided into four great sections: a Division of the Pacific, a Division of the Atlantic, a Division of the Missouri, and a Division of the South. Four officers of eminence hold these great commands: Major-general Scholefield ruling the Pacific, from San Francisco; Major-general Hancock the Atlantic, from New York; Lieutenant-general Sheridan the Missouri, from Chicago; and Major-general McDowell the South, from Louisville. General Sherman, the Commander-in-Chief, is stationed at St. Louis. Each military division consists of two or more departments. The division of Major-general McDowell, of which New Orleans forms a part, consists of two departments:--a Department of the South, and a Department of the Gulf. That of the South comprises seven

say? Caesar — as General Grant is now called, not only in the South, but in the North and West-is not so confident as Belknap and his adjutants that things are all going well in New Orleans. America has many voices, and her voices reach him in the secret places of his Cabinet. They strike him like the roar of coming storms. Accounts of what was done in Royal Street on Sunday night and Monday morning fill the daily prints of every town from Galveston to Portland, from Savannah to San Francisco. Most of these accounts are printed with satirical and indignant leaders. Many of the writers treat the incident as a pastime. Is it not Carnival — a time for quips and cranks? This Negro orgy in the State House is a joke; that drinking-bar, those hot suppers, that midnight caucus, and those morning cocktails, are conceits of comic writers. But the press, in general, take the thing in serious mood, and to their credit the ablest Republican journals are the sternest critics of De Tr

and has roused the country like a crash of war. The full Committee is coming down, but no one thinks the four Members who have not been here will contradict the three who have. From east to west, the country seems to be aflame. Quick, sensitive, meridional as are the men of New Orleans, they are not prepared for such an outbreak of White sentiment as fires the North. Boston is not less eager in sympathy than New York. Pittsburg joins hands with Cleveland; Cincinnati calls aloud to San Francisco. Never, since President Lincoln's death, has so much passion found a vent in speech. Statesmen who weigh their words are coming to the front, arraigning President Grant of something like high treason to the commonwealth. Adams in Boston, Bryant in New York, are giving the highest intellectual sanction to the general fury. Evarts, the ablest lawyer in America, is denouncing Sheridan and De Trobriand, in terms not often applied by lawyers to the lowest tools of a despotic power. The

iest spot in the United States, excepting China Town in San Francisco, which is not regarded by Sanitary Boards as being in twn in Europe. From the senior partner, who is going to San Francisco with a view to business, we learn that Ralston's busy b conceived the idea of opening a great watch factory in San Francisco, and doing the watch trade on a scale not yet attemptede able to make a watch. A company has been formed in San Francisco, with Cornell as president, Ralston as treasurer, and Cis Sunday energies to labour in the slums and alleys of San Francisco. Part of a factory on Fourth Street, now occupied by aYork. The whole affair looks well. The climate of San Francisco, Cornell explains to me, is suitable for the watch trade voice of a physician, who has lived for many years in San Francisco, and has watched the coming of our Yellow brethren from? They say, they are going to set up a new industry in San Francisco. But for whom? Not for Americans, but for Asiatics.

e Ladies' Sea. What other proofs are needed that, when Cork and Canton cast out any of their surplus tenants, the starving overflow from Canton must arrive at San Francisco in advance of that from Cork? If China has a mouth unfed, that mouth is likely, if American ports are open, to seek for food within the Golden Gate. 2. Chireign soil. But when the ports are open and the act is free, there is a chance that men of some good qualities may come out. Roughs of all kinds have come to San Francisco; yet the settlers from Europe, as a rule, have not belonged to the criminal class. How stands the great account with China? Has an American statesman any guamuch reason for suspicion. All the females, it is known, are slaves; professional harlots in their own country, bought in Canton by slave-dealers, and sent to San Francisco by these slave-owners, with the avowed object of living in this country a life of shame. The males, whether refuse of the prisons or of the streets, belong as

Those Chinese won't send us their best people. Guess they have no mandarins to spare. A man who hears such gossip in the clubs and at the dinner-tables of San Francisco might infer that much of the fear, hatred, and suspicion heaped on Hop Ki falls to him, not so much because he is a heathen, as because his face is womanish, hspice of pride. To call a man Ah is one of his three thousand ceremonies of politeness, and the three thousand ceremonies of politeness are coming into use in San Francisco. I call this chap Ah Ki instead of raising his wages, and my politeness pays me five dollars a month. That comes of paying attention to the Book of Rites. Nthen is good for both of us. I always feel better after wallopping Ki. Mine host is not more notable for his humour than his kindliness of heart. No man in San Francisco has done more than he to get these Asiatics treated fairly by the judges and police. You can form no notion of the impudence of these rascals, he continue

Chapter 23: Chinese labour. More serious are the questions raised in San Francisco by the Chinese knack of learning trades. The Mongol's advent in America has brought into the front the great his silent ways. John builds the chapels, banks, hotels, and schools. No room is left in San Francisco for the unskilled Irish peasant, and the movement of Irish labourers towards this Slope has he same in many other trades. The business of cigar making is the largest separate craft in San Francisco; thousands of persons are employed in smoothing, rolling, twisting the tobacco leaves; and tebrew shops are, therefore, full of Yellow-men. It is from this connection with the Jews of San Francisco, that John has got his droll idea that the Melicans crucified Christ — a crime for which Johword was slid to them before they left Illinois about the company employing Chinese hands in San Francisco. They were only told of the lovely scenery, the temperate climate, the abundant fruits. Mo

At Salt Lake they huddle round the marketplace; at Virginia they cower about the mines. In San Francisco they have taken up their rest in the oldest quarter. When they reach New York they will setella; just as they have driven the low Irish and the lower Mexicans from their old haunts in San Francisco. How these lovers of dirt would revel in the port-side of Alexandria, in the sacred precinche Pacific Slope? At Monterey we hear of a group of Chinese squatters, who have come from San Francisco, and settled as fishermen on the bluff near Pinos Point. Scorning to boil shirts, roast mutts of lotteries, of performances in the theatres, and of services in the great joss-house of San Francisco. Every Mongol in America regards San Francisco as his capital and the great joss-house in San Francisco as his capital and the great joss-house in that city as his temple. Tim, like most of his countrymen, is pious. No joss-house has been raised in the village near Pinos Point, for the fishermen cannot afford the luxury of a priest; but in ev

part of the population — a seventieth part of the surface — of San Francisco is Asiatic. All Orientals pack closer than Europeans. A man m he see such crowds as we find packed in the Asiatic quarter of San Francisco. The term Asiatic quarter may suggest a separate portion of ing parts like China Town in Moscow; but the Asiatic quarter in San Francisco is an open colony, like May Fair in London, like the Second Disct in New York. The Chinese have squatted in the very heart of San Francisco. Lock Sin's tea-house in Jackson Street may be regarded as nd fuzees burn by night and day.. China Town is running over San Francisco, spreading to east and west, to north and south. The Asiatics round Bartlett Alley. Here some of the first White settlers in San Francisco threw up their hives. The ground is undrained. The log shantio'clock, and order a refreshing cup. What you have seen in San Francisco you may see in Sacramento, Stockton, San Jose, and other towns.
