The Boston of China.
Dr. Yontoze-Hing, of New York,
in a recent interview says:
"Eoo-Chow, sir, is the Boston
of China, and one of the finest
cities in the world,'' said Dr. Yon-toze-IIing,
a well known Chinese
physician ol this city, to a reporter
Monday. "I have lived there many
years, and am, consequently, mach
interested as to how it will with
stand the French bombardment.
The population of the city itself is
at least 800,000, and that of the
suburbs about 400,000. As a seat
of learning it is pre-eminently dis
tinguished. No fewer than :?,200
literary graduates a term that
closely corresponds to that of 'senior
wrangler' at the University at Cam
bridge, in England or more than
a quarter of all the scholars in that
part of the empire, reside in Foo
Chow. It is also the home of 7,000
'literary students,' seedy bat clever
young fellows, who are supported
somewhat in tho same manner as
the 'poor scholars' of Ireland that
is, by teaching and similar
scholastic pursuits. Foo-Chow has
a considerable inland trade and has
greatly enlarged her commerce, es
pecially since the extirpation of
pirates. As well as I can remem
ber, the imports of opium last year
exceeded 3,500,000, of foodstuff's,
S4.000.000, and of foreign goods,
o5,000,000. Special attention is
paid to the tea trade, as the Bohea
leaf flourishes in the neighborhood
of Foo-Chow. Perhaps the most
important industry is navigation.
The Min River, which is navigable
for 250 miles, to a city called Shan
gai, where a canal connects it with
a tributary of the Y'ang-tse-Kiang,
is the home of over fifty thousand
boatmen. Thousands of fishermen
also make a good living by selling
sharks' fins, birds' nest soup, devil-
fisn, dragonfish, gourarai, seaworm
greenfish and many other species
