ast aftenoon, (July 4th,) clouds of dust " the ravines among the hills 10 lhe rig suddenly attracted our atlention, and ir AN few minutes column after column cai icl' galloping down, making directly to 1 ple river. By the time the leading herds r ?nd reached the water, ihe prairie was da nS' ened with the dense mnsses. Immedia a ly beforc us when the bands first co , to down into the valley, stretched an unb we ken line, the hend of whicli was losi mong the river hills on lhe opposile si andstill they poured down from the ri 3nP on our rght. From hill to hill, the pi d" rie bottom was certainly not less thnn 1 vl' miles wide; and allowing the animáis "k" be ten feet a pan, and only ten in a li there were already eleven thousand ' view. Some had occupied the wr nnd plain. In a short time they surroun my us on every side, extending for sev s in miles in the rear, and forward as far tam the eye could reach; leaving around ns we advanced, an open space of o two or three hundred yards.

A large b lass of the people are learned; as a nac on, Ihey are industrious and ingenious c syond othors; the whole country is like n beehive. Learning has the first place ' i public astimation, and booksareas nut lerousas in Europe. A catalogue which ' In C. had in his possession of a single brary occupies ten volumes. Public ' leasures are debated by the populace as S luch as in the United States, and public pinion has as much influence in China n i the Government as with us. The fasi .1 error of the Chinese has been in give ig too epicurean a character to their haP its and their Government. One illustl ation of tliis cited was ;he fact that at n ie close of all letters to one another, the i ritten salulation is '1 wish you tranquilK tv and promotion.' They lar.k only a ïilitary Uill and discipline to make them c powerful nntion, cayable of repelüng d i vasion, or overrunning contiguous coun ries; for no men are braver, or die more earlessly in the rnnks. ."China does not need any foreign rnde. Within her own territory she iroduces evcry thing requisite for the vants of her populntion. "Newspapers as well os books abound nnd circuíate freely among the Chínese, and the Pekin Gazette particularly penetrates to every part of the Empire. They annually publish a Red-Book, similar to our Blue-Book, giving the names and emolument of all public officers. "In regard to the population of China, Mr. Cushing seems to be of opinión that the Chinese census does not overrale the number, and that the three hundred and fifty millions, which they claim, is not far from the true number. In the south ern part of the country two crops a year are produced, and the poorer classes sub sist on a little rice, and the flesh of dogs cats, rats. &c. To the cities and town there are no carriage-ways, the streel are only narrow foot-paths, and no hors or other beasts of burden are kept to re quire large ranges of pasturage. Th population is crowded into the narrowes limits, by a long succession of ages oí pence and industry. The compensation asked by the servants which Mr. C. in his character of American Ambassadoi■ employed, was only five dollars a monlh d and out of this they found their own foo " and c.lothing. ie "The Chinese have long been acquain ' ed with all ilie iinprovetnents n the tirf ld upon which Europeans pridc themselve ts as tho inventora, with the exception onl of the steam engine. Machinery hl ' not heen introduced among them. ;t' "The wrong impressions wliich ha ir" obtained in regard to the Chinese chara '' ter have been caused by the always dif cultand often erroneous translation fro st" a primitive language, which frequent re' makes what in the original was raiion m' and serious, appear in the translation e ie" surd and ludicrous." ost . . ad H1STORY OF THE REFORM 1 sis GERMANY.
