THE CHINESE QUESTION.
The Memphis Aptn! of Tuesday week,
speaking of the Chinese-labor meeting
that was held the next day in that city,
"We Invo seen a letter from one of the
wealthiest and most successful citizens of
Snn Francisco, dated the 18th instant, on
the subject of Chinese labor for our cot
ton Bold. The writer is a man who has
CmuV, m'(EwQrt i ng, obedient and frugal

readily adapt themselves to the manners
and wants of Americans, nnd are aa use
ful in domestic service as in the more la
bortous occur arinns of ttif ircto. t ne inp-
ply is inexhaustible." On tlie subject of
I tie best and most practicable mode of
gelling them here, lie says : "Their servi
ce can be obtained only through their own
contractors their principal men. A spe
cial proposition made to one of these men
will be satisfactorily answcied."
The Rieliuiond Whig says :
" The Memphis movers in the Cliineac
enterprise seem to have gone to work in
earnest. They have opened negotiations
uritb the ( hinese contractors, and oartic-
.,. lhmMkia imnorternt Sa.. Fran-
' . ' J " ' 1 ' " -
Cisco, who, it is said, lias ly ins own in
dividual agency brought nearly a hun
rred thousand of his country men across
the Pacific. He is to meet tlie members
of tin- con vent ion at Memphis on the 13lh
instant, when aud whereall the conditions
between the contracting parties, the rates
of transportations, tlie wages mid subsis
tence, tho tenure of service, the guarantees
tor tlie fulfillment of obligations, &c., will
bo definitely settled. Then the momen
tous experiment of supplanting one race
! by the substitution of another will begin.
What is to be the end of the great cuter-
prise, is hid in the inscrutable mind. As
an aid to reflection on the subject we sub
join a brief article from the New York
. We-have-bcen rery greatly Interested
in a discussion in the California papers
about the Chinese, and can readily ap
preciate the gravity of the danger which
threatens not only the extreme West, but
onr whole country, from the incursion of
these unwashed, plodding, conscienceless,
patient, brutish workers. They will cheap
en labor and lower the lone of morals,
drive white workers to rmneugompetitiott,
and flit oar streets with blaaoned vice, un-
less some steps are taken which shall defi.
nitely stop the immigration. In the com
pactness and unity of trade unions alone
ean we sec any sensible solution nf tbe
problem. The danger is not distant, it is
imminent, tor according to Mr. McDonald
Nesbitt, who has thoroughly posted himclf
iu this matter, already a hundred thous
and of these Chinese have arrived, and
their patient labor is manifesting itself in
the cheap production of textile fabrics,
mechanical nuproyeiuents, nnd tins neces
saries of life. - Living on a handful of rice
atlny, dad in cotton-garments, they make
themselves, at a cost nf aollar or two;
doxens living in a single Woeinent, aud
thus practicing a system oK economy
which reduces their Ijving to six or eight
cents a day, they will work for fifteen
cents a day and make money, They know
nothing of luxury or tho comforts or in
conveniences of life ; they have but one
object, and that I to. wake money, la
Vain did the mechanics and laborers of
San Francisco try by cruel treatment to
bauish them ; in vain jrew trades' union
formed to prevent their obtaining employ
ment ; it was found impossible to starve
oat a people who could adapt lliemselves
to the employments of women, live on
their wages, and when employment failed,
live on animata and offal which are aa
abomination to Caucasians 1 Though not
possessed of the physical vlgorof the Can
casian, their patience, perseverence and
untiring application compensate largely
foi this. Beared under despotism, where
oppression is tin rule and brutish stupidi
ty general, they hare no ideas of freedom ;
they are aa obedient as slaves, and they
enly need a dn. cling mind to plan, to
measure, to lay off the work, when, with
in.- uncomplaining submission of a ma
chine, they delve in the rooks, hew in the
forests or labor in the fields. As you walk
Ul) the streets of San Franeism nn will
see them squatted in the alleys or corners,
inclining snoes, queensware, tin ware, ma
king garments for the Jews, toys, balls,
hoops, states, pencils, satchels for the
boys. They wii! solo i o ir shoes for five
Cent above the COSt of the leather, and
do it in a workmanlike manner. Give
them the tobacco and they will make yon
a hundred cigars for ten cent. Tin and
copper ware they will make tor you ae
eoraing to directions at a few cents above
tbe cost of the material : and if you want
a man killed thev will do that at cost
of a few dollars ! Conscience thev have
none; morals they know not ; future life
beyond tbe grave they disbelieve, ana
death has no terrors for them. Perjcry
is very common, as they cannot, or will
not, appreciate the sanctity of an oath ;
hence they are frequently hired aa wit
nesses. In no ordinary wav ean honest. mnutA.
bin workmen meet and master these peo
ple. Thev are unscrupulous to tho last
degree, submitting to the indignities that
would make the blood of an American or
an Irishman boil, for the merest mttanee
at which an Eastern laborer would turn
up bis nose. They w ill be met and en
couraged by the capitalists, and unless
they are bluffed, stopped before they se
cure a loot bold, trouble and discord, con
fusion mid disaster will surely result from
It behoove the workingmen of our day

occurred recently during tho discussion
on the new constitution in the Spanish
Cortes Father Manterola, one of the
most learned andeloqneut members of the
Spanish priesthood, opposed the .'.institu
tion in a speech of great ability and pow
er. He considered .Spain to be on the
brink of chaos, nnd the project of the con
stitution was the brink of "the abyss. He
particularly opposed tho article authoriz
ing liberty of worship, aud declared that
if Spain cast herself into the arms of "free
worship," abandoned of God she would
utterly perish, and her name would disap
pear from the list of civilized nations.
- He was replied to by a young deputy,
Seuor Castclar, iu an impromptu speech
of remarkable eloquence, which has been
pronounced one ot I he greatest orations
of modern times. Heplying to the denial
of the priest, that tlie church oi Home had
been a persecuting church,, he said :
"Seuor Manterola said he conderaed all
religious persecutions. Then his rever
ence ought to condemn lively and ener
getically many pages in the history of the
church. "We did not kill the persecuted
oues," said Senor Manterola, ''the civil
power killed them!" Mirthful defence I
As if the assassin should Bay it was not
he who killed his victim, it was his dag

The truth of the persecutions may be
known by opening any page of ecclesias
tical history !,
Senor Manterola says I have never been
in Itomc. Yes I have. I have visited
its ruins ; I have contemplated its three
the ceremonies of the Holy week ; I have
admired the gigantic Sibyls of Michael
Angelo which seem to launch eternal mal
edictions. I have seen the snn penetrate
into the basilica of St. Peter's. I have
sought in those ashes an atom of religious
faith I have only encopntered deceit and

Great is God in Sinai ; the thundor pre
cedes him, the lightning accompanies bin f
the light envelopes him tbe earth trem
bles ; the mountains fall in pieces Hut
there is a God greater and grander than
that. Not the majestic God o( Sinai, but
the humble God of Calvary, nailed to a
sross, wounded, thirsty, crowned with
thorns, gall on his Hps, and yet saying
"father, forgive them, forgive my execu

them, for they know not what they do 1"

The elect of this speech is said to have
been electrical aud overwhelming. Mem
hers crowded around the gifted young
orator, and with truo Spanish impulsive
ness, embraced and kissed hjm. The pres
ident declared the session dosed, descend
ed from his seat, and e nth raced Castelar

A BACKWOODS ADVENTURE.
A Virginia banker, who was chair mm:
of a noted infidel club, was once traveling
through Kentucky, having bank bills to
the amount of about $25,000. When he
came to a lonely forest where murders and
rollers were said to be frequent, he was
soon lost, through taking tbe wrong road.
The darkness of the night came quickly
over him and how to escape from the
threatening danger be knew not. In his
alarm he suddenly espied in tbe distance
a dim light, and urging hie horse on wan!,
he at length came to a wretched cabin -He
knocked, and tbe door was opened by
a woman who said that her hue baud waa
