Feeling some doubt as to the truth of this Chinese legend, taken as a whole, we seek for light age of the facts — the upper class of resident Chinese.

y-fallen snow. Two knives under that smock, as innocent as he looks, whispers my next neighbour, a gentleman who abhors the Yellow race and has an excellent Chinese cook. A decent sort of lad to look at, I observe. Ugh! A Heathen Chinee; as big a scoundrel as the rest; perhaps worse, if one only knew the truth. So much work, so much pay; that is the end of our agreement. Take my word for it, that fellow in his own country was either a thief, a rebel, or a slave. 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 mind drinks all round? Well, no; that Heathen Chinee rather turned the laugh aside. Ay; how was that? No White man can conceive the impudence of these Chinese. Moon-face picked himself up, shook off a little of the mire, and, looking mildly at our worthy citizen, curtseyed like a girl, saying to him, in a voice that ev

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.

A Negro lives on the fat of the land, and needs as much food as any other American. John and Sam will never be able to live in peace. John works hard on rice and tea, and not much of either; while Sam wants roast turkey and cocktail, and a good supply of each. Under a system of equal laws, the Negro would be unable to keep a footing in the labour market of America, i

Two elderly Chinese, living in Stout's Alley, swore that Choy Minld not have sold her to anyone else. Several Chinese witnesses gave evidence of having seen Choy M of family worship, require no sending back to China after death. Like beasts that perish, these fo beset the hamlets near the coast. In every Chinese port there is a market for such wares. At Holy-conceded fact that the great proportion of Chinese immigrants who come to our shores do not comesolutely.

Chapter 27: White progress. Under the menace of such an invasion from China, threatening at no distant date to swallow up the civilization of Europe in the barbarism of Asia, has not the time arrived for White men of all sections in America to review the situation? White conquest in America has been so rapid and so uniform that men are not unlikely to be careless of the future, fancying that their work is done, their tenure of the land secured. When Hancock and his comrades signed the Declaration of Independence, Thirteen Colonies were represented at the Congress in Philadelphia; Thirteen Colonies, covering less than five hundred thousand square miles of surface, peopled by something under two million five hundred thousand souls, of whom nearly five hundred thousand were Africans, held in slavery. At the end of a century those Thirteen Colonies have grown into Thirty Nine States and Eight Territories, covering more than three million square miles of surface, counting upwar

In another ten years she had outgrown Manchester. Fifteen years ago she was ahead of Liverpool. At the present moment Philadelphia is more than equal to Manchester, Liverpool, and Sheffield combined. If the population of Dublin and Edinburgh, York, Lancaster, and Chester were counted in one list they would hardly make up half the number of people who house in Philadelphia at this present day. If size is but another name for power the City of Brotherly Love is metropolitan. Leaving out Chinese cities, Philadelphia claims to be the fourth city in the world, admitting no superiors save London, Paris, and New York. She over-caps all other rivals. She is bigger than Moscow and St. Petersburg, the two capitals of Russia, put together. The three capitals of the Astrologer Monarchy, Vienna, Pesth, and Prague, fall far below her numbers. She has left behind her the four capitals of United Italy-Rome, Florence, Naples, and Turin. She claims to have at the present hour a population s
