The Chinese War—Russian Intervention.
A correspondent. of the iNT.ew York Herald,
writing on board the United States steamer
Mississippi, now in the Chinese seas, says
that there is now. a large Russian fleet in the
river Amoor, and that. the army on its bor
ders has been increased:
"Report-says that the Emperor of China is
rather inclined to listen to the.proposition of
fered by the Emperor of Russia a few months
since, which was to the effect that, if China
will' cede to Russia the provinces of Kivin
n,nd Helungkwang, in Manchooria—which, if
done, will connect the passion dominions
'with the seaboard, which will be of great Russia—that government had offer
ed to furnish a large army—clothe, provision
and pay the same—and put down the rebels
in China, on condition that :these provinces
`were ceded to them. Owing to the present
state of 'affairs in this country, the Emperor,
as. the report goes, has ordered his court to
take the subject into
.consideration, and to as
certain if ; the same can be done to the advan
tage of both countries. The general inipres-•
sion seems to be that this is a step toward
forming an alliance with that Government,
for the following.reason, which seems to be a•
very good one : It is a well-known fact that
it will be, utterly. impossible for England or
France to obtain any treaties from this Gov
•ernment.' Supposing that to be the case,
and the Ministers from these countries fail
to carry their point, it is quite certain that
all the naval and military forces that can be
mustered belonging to those countries, will
be ordered here, and on some future day a
grand attempt will be made to land an 'army,
and force His Imperial Highness to make a
treaty with those Governments. On'the other
hand, should that be done, ,there is not a
shadow of a doubt but the Emperor of Rus
sia, 'who has already a large army—fifty
thousand strong—on the Anioor, and could,
in a short time, have them all in the city of
Pekin, ready to join the Chinese troops now
in that city, and' reported to be one million
strong; and these two armies, so powerfal, -
marching together, would drive every Eng
lishman and Frenchman out of the country."
Men's Christian Association of Pittsburgh
Dave adopted a policy which must be very
alarming to the lawyers of that city. At a
recent meeting resolutions were adopted for
the appointment of a Committee of Arbitra
tion, before whom the members of the Asso
ciation, and all others who may wish to have
their personal differences settled in obedience
to Christian rules, may bring their matters
of controversy. A Pittsburgh correspondent
of a religious paper, writing au this subject,
The object of this movement is to open the
way for a more general observance of the in
junctions plainly given by Paul, in the sixth
Chapter of his first Epistle to the Corinthians.
It has long been a disgrace to those calling
themselves - Christians, that, instead of an at
tempt amicably to settle their differences; as
those 'vho have renounced the world and be
come brethern in Christ, they "go to law"
with each other, "and that before .unbeliev
ers." How often when a member of one
denomination of Evangelical Christians has
sued a member in another, and the court
room has become the scene of hostle if not
revengful measures between 'them, do the
people. of the world, standing by, exclaim,
"Behold, how these Christians love another!"
The day is past for converting people to
Christianity by only an exhibition of its theo
ry—by preaching of love, good will and for
bearance, whilst its professors, upon every
occasion of fancied insult or injury, rush upon
each other with all the bitterness of litigation.
It is to be hoped that the steps taken by the
Association of our city will be imitated, and
that churches,
individually, will also join in
the effiirt to show the world that, when they
pray, "Thy will be done on earth as it is in
heaven," they mean something more than the
expression of an abstract idea.
Todd, who owns a ranch a mile below Wea

she walked from Shasta to Weaversville, and
without money, began the business of wash
ing for six dollars a dozen. An acquaintance
who lived near her domicil, says that for along
time she was bending over the wash tub at
daylight in the morning, at noon, and at ten
o'clock at night. Business" prospered, and
after while she bought two claims,- which
turned out well. Then she bought chickens
which laid eggs, and which she sold at half a
dollar a piece ; then she bought a pig for 5125.

ty American says—"We are pained to an
nounce the death of Evans E. Green, late of

fortunes of his family. Six or eight months
ago lie was surrounded by a fine family in
Thornbury, consisting of a wife and five
children. The latter were taken with the
scarlet. fever, and died in quick succession--,

TAKE A PAPER:—Every family should have
a paper. It is worth more than it costs aim- .
ply for educational purposes. Parents have
hardly a right to deprive their family of its
advantage in- these tines, • Children will
learn more, as they go to and from school, or
drive the cows to pasture, or pick berries by
the way, if their observation is quickened-by'
what they hear their parents read or talk of
from the papers ; and when they form habits
of reading for themselves, such reading is
both safe and useful. Reader, if your neigh
bor has no paper persuade him to take one.
—Even if he is poor, he can better afford to
take one than do without ; for if he takes one,
his children will be likely to be better off—to
make a good home for themselves ; and it may
be for him in old age.
The'Great PoliticaLlnvention - of the Age
---The Loom:Lipton Test
When the Lecompton Constitution, with.
the annexed schedule, was first devised, it
seemed unreasonable to expect that this cen
tury would preclude any political 'prodigy
more remarkable. But as one great inven•
fiat is .often only the pioneer of another
equally startling, it has happened that the
Calhoun contrivance has paved the way for
something still more wonderful—the Lecorrip 7
ton test. We are not prepared to announce,
positively, who is best, entitled. to the honor,
of being considered .its author, but presume
it may be 'equally shared by the editors of
the - Washington Union; the "illuminated"
Senator, Bigler, and Jehu G. Jones. Letters
patent have doubtless been granted to it by,
the National Administration. As this great
discovery is about coming into universal use
throughout the Union, and threatens entirely
to revolutionize, American politics, it is im
portant that we should fully understand its
character. I3y-a test we are enabled to dis 7
tinguish between the false and the true,' the
bad and the good, the genuine and the coun
terfeit. By tests the chemist ascertains, the
presence of arsenic, the purity of metals, the
ingredients of any 'articles which may , be
presented to him. The new invention gives
to the political world a mode of determining,
summarily and certainly,',mooted questions
of orthodoxy. Devotion to Lecompton is the
test. All who are prepared to advocate the
enforcement of a Constitution upon a people
against their will are Democrats—those who
do not consent to this doctrine are by that
refusal slmwri to be beyond the pale of the
party. The distinction is a plain and mark
ed one. Like all great inventions, this test
is perfectly direct in its operation. It is true
that men who, in the simplicity ,of their
hearts, have supposed they were Democrats ;
and who have been weak enough to think
that the rule of the people and popular sov
ereignty were the very corner stones of the
temple in which their life-long political-wor
ship has been rendered, may be somewhat
astonished by this- discovery; but what of
that? . Old ideas - and prejudices must give
way to modern science ; and who will dare
to gainsay the high authorities by which the
new patent is endorsed ? ,
As the test, however, is practically
plied, we confess it is -somewhat curious to
note its effects. In their eagerness to dis 7
play its virtues, one of the first practical ex
periments of its authors has been upon Sena
tor Douglas. He has for years been recog
nized by the whole American people as one
of the strongest pillars of our party—as one
of the boldest, ablest, and most effective.
champions of its principles—in the Senate
and before the people. In all the great con
tests of the last twenty years his voice has
been heard in ringing tones high above the
din of strife, cheering on the Democratic
hosts. There is not an honest Democrat- in
all this broad land who has not felt a thrill
of joy at some of his grand achievenients
during that period, and had his political
faith strengthened or renewed by his master
ly speeches. The author and leading advo
cate of the Nebraska bill, he ought to know
something of its meaning; but as he persists
in an honest adherence to its provisions, as
he understands them, the Lecompton test in
fallibly pronounces him beyond the pale of
the Democratic party.
For years, too, Governor Wise has been
hailed as one of the most gallant of the De
mocratic leaders. Time and again has he
rallied Virginia to the support of Mr. Bu
chanan, and when Know-Nothingism raged
rampant and victorious, he charged upon it
heroically, and destroyed it. Gifted with
very remarkable talents, his whole energies
have been effectively enlisted in defence of
the Democratic creed. But he will not bow
the knee to Lecompton or the English bill,
and the test dooms him.
And Robert J. Walker, too I lie is the
very embodiment of American Progress; his
mind, a storehouse of statesmanlike sugges
tions ; his record, one galaxy of deeds done
for republican empire and extension; his am
bition, to see his country go forward in the
march of Democratic principle. And yet he
is rejected because he rejects Lecompton.
So, too, of Stanton, Bancroft, Packer, Hick
man, Chapman, and hundreds of thousands
of men in the Democratic ranks, who never
swerved one inch from the strictest require
ments of its creed. The test overthrows in
an instant all their pretensions to Democratic
consistency, and robs them of the name of
Had we space and time, it would be amus
ing to consider who, on the other hand, have
become Democrats of the first water by the
operations of this test. This list includes
men who have never acted with the party or
voted a single Democratic ticket—men whose
whole lives have been spent in warring upon
its principles and its organization—men who
have gloried in the ultraism of their section
alism—and men who have ever placed plun
der high above principle. The test estab
lishes their orthodoxy. Now, however, and
by the simple operation of endorsing a wrong,
they have their names blazoned first upon
the roll of recipients of high honors and
The American people will no doubt duly
honor an invention which has achieved such
wonderful results.—The Press.
Compiler very aptly remarks that if there is
any creed held'by thel3lack Rupublican par
ty, it. is the doctrine of the equality of the
negro..with the white race. In proof of this
we need• only inform opr readers that the
House of Representatives in Connecticut, by
a vote of one hundred and twelve to ninety
four, has passe'cl,a bill:to amend. the .Consti
tution of the State so as to allow negroes to
vote. Every Black Republican voted for it
and every Democrat against it. An amend;
ment was proposed by the same committee so
that it should be required by the State Con
stitution, that foreigners should remain in the
State twenty-one years before being allowed
to vote. Under the operation of such a law,
the most filthy, ragged, or ignorant fugitive
slave will be allowed to vote at once, while
the foreigner, no odds how intelligent, must'
wait his twenty-ono years: The white for
eigner is disfranchised,• while the negro• is
caressed and allowed to become a citizen at
once.-- The same -thing has been done in alas-
sachusetts and other New England States . ,--
A similar amendment has been .proposed to
the COnstitution of Ohio. It is useless for
Black'Republican prints to deny this as being
one of the fundamental 'doctrines of their
party. It is in fact the only: principle- upon
which they aro united and which holds them
together as a party. . • - . -

Mysterious Affair in New York.
A man writes las obituary—Engages his cof
fin; arranges kis fitneral, and then
[From the New York Courier, July 30.1
A report was current in the city. on Thurs
day that Mr. John V. James had,died very
suddenly and mysteriously at his, residence,
No. 69,-Amity street, and that his remains
had been conveyed in a clandestine manner
to Albany, the place of his nativity. What
added still more to the mystery, was the fact
that his death 'Was announced in the Herald
of Monday, as having taken place on Sunday
evening, when in fact he was well at that
time, and continued so• up to within a few
hours of his disease, which took place on
Tuesday evening. Mr. James had been ad
dicted to excess in the use of ardent spirits,
and was in the habit of partaking of
ful medicines. It is supposed that he intend
ed committing suicide on Sunday night, and
after having penned a notice of his death
and sent it to the Herald office, his courage
failed him, and he postponed the deed. The
following is the notice referred to :
"Died.—On Sunday evening, July 25th,
Mr. John V. James, of Albany. "
"This sentence will occasion many a sad
heart among those who knew him. He was
one of the kindest and gentlest of human
beings. For the last three years Mr. James
has been connected with the-press. The last
lines lie ever wrote were on the death of his
friend, Lieutenant Gaston; who fell with Cap
tain Taylor, of whose death a feeling and
eloquent paragraph was published in yester
day's Herald. Mr. James was only twenty
years of age at the time of his death. Had
he lived, he would have made a name for
himself among the writers of his country."
On the morning subsequent to his death, a
wagon containing a coffin was driven up to
No. 69 Amity street. The coffin was taken
into the house, and in about fifteen minutes
afterwards brought out, placed upon - the wag
on and driven off. The act was noticed by
persons residing in the neighborhood, and
finally came to the knowledge of Inspector
Dilks, 15th Police District, who endeavored
to get information at the house where deceas
ed had resided, but failed, and then applied
to the physicians Who had attended him.—
These gentlemen stated that they had made
a post mortem examination of the body, and
ascertained that death was caused by deliri
-71211' tremens, accelerated by the strong.inedi
eines he had been in the habit of using.—
On the certificate given by one of these gen
tlemen; the body was taken for interment to
Albany, where most of the relatives of de
ceased reside. There is but little doubt, how
ever, from the circumstances above named,
that the deceased committed suicide. For a
man of his - years, Mr. James was a writer of
considerable ability, and possessed decided
talent as a poet. It is stated that he was a
relation of Mr. G. P. R. James, the English
novelist. .
Life in Texas---Large Crops and Good
G. W. Kendall, of the New Orleans Pica
yune, has written another of his usually in
teresting and genial letters from his
_farm in
Texas. We quote:a few paragraphs. - •Speak
ing of the abundant crops, he says:
"The wheat crop is already of course
gathered, and the yield has been immense.—
The corn crop—much even of the second
planting, which was put in the ground after
the grasshoppers had left it—is as good as
made, and again the yield will be great.—
Cotton looks well in every quarter, and from
the sugar-growino , sections we have no other
than the most flattering accounts. Of peaches
and melons we have enough for all 'creation ;
our stock of all kinds, cattle, horses, and
sheep, is fairly rolling in fat; wild grapes,
plums, and cherries may be gathered in a
profusion unknown in other countries ; of
sweet potatoes, tomatoes, cabbages, and other
vegetables, we are raising all that we can eat,
and our entire population is more than hope
ful—it is joyous Gov. Runnels can afford to
give us two thankgivings this year; we can't
get through in one day."
- He states, however, that strangers coming
to settle in Texas must not expect to meet at
first with all the comforts and conveniences
to be found in old settlements, and adds :
"But if a person wishes to enjoy the finest
climate in the Union, to possess the best of
health, to find cheap lands which must rapid
ly increase in value, to engage in a business
which, if properly attended to, will bring in
a yearly profit of froth 40 to 70 per cent, on
an investment—l mean stock-raising--and
is willing to put up with a few of the incon
veniences ever attendant upon life on the
frontier, let such persons come to Texas.
"We live a quiet life here in the mountains, •
and have no exciting events to chronicle.—
Not a murder, not an overt act of criminal
importance, has been committed in our coun
ty for two years, that I am aware of and I
doubt whether our jail has a single tenant to
brush away the cobwebs. Our crops wholly
or partially failed in '56 and '57 ; yet I have
not seen a single soul soliciting alms, nor
witnessed a solitary case of suffering' from
poverty in the neighborhood... Every owner
of a farm is the possessor of more or less stock;
this stock has gone on increasing and multi
plying, and'upon this they have all lived and
moved, and had a comfortable being."
EGG STATISTICS.—The Buffalo Express, of
August 4th, contained the following some-.
what startling statistics:
The Eqg Crop.— is estimated that there
are 103,600,000 laying fowls in
. this country,
of which 50,000,000 lay one egga day through
out the year. This would give the annual
crop of 18,250,000,000 eggs, and these at 8
cts. a dozen would be worth $121,666,666!
To this the New York Evening Foal grave
ly remarks: _
The cotton crop of the United States, esti
mated at the seabord, according to the' cen
sus of 1850, amounted to $78,264,928.
'Estimated at the same point—that is, ac
cording to New York prices to-day—the egg
crop_ of the United States would amount to
$259,011;666, or twice as much as the cotton,
tobacco, rico, hay, hemp and sugar crops of
the slave States put together.
The national economists of these distin
guished journals are evidently at fault in
their calculations, having made no deduction
for bad eggs.

Business Aspects of the Present.
The observer of business operation, who
writes of the prospect from the stand-point of
to-clay, can say little more than he could have
written a month ago. The omens are nearly
the same, and the surroundings of trade al
most precisely similar. It -is true, we can
speak more confidently of the harvest, which,
in the main, has been plenteous; but the oth
er elements remain unchanged. Trade tim
idly pursues its courses through narrow chan
nels. Capital hides itself in secret places,
inactive and unprofitable. The banks are
like oysters, and open their mouths not to .
feed others, but to sustain themselves. Travel
is light; amusements are dull ; customers
are scarce, and little is being added to the
accumulated stocks of last year. These, the
ingredients which constitute the aggregate of
our present horoscope, constituted it on the
first day of July. There is little or no
Is there, then, no more hope ? Assuredly
there is. What we want to cure the ills un
der which we groan and sweat, is Times, And
every day that passes over our heads brings
us nearer to deliverance. This nation; all
nations are in the precise predicament, to-day,
of the man who said he would be happy if he
could be kicked into the middle of next month,
so as to pasi over the day his note fell due.
We have a note to pay—every nation has a
note to pay ; and when we pass over the col
lection-day, no matter how, we shall begin to
improve, and that 'rapidly. Our hope, then
is na,the patience with which we can contin
ue to endure existing disadvantages. The
recoil is coming—very, very slowly, but it is
coming, and the more philosophically we
await it, the better. No one can tell when
this will he. To use another simile : we are
like the passengers of a great ship that has
lain on the flat sea in a dead calm :
"A painted ship upon a painted ocean."
Vainly they watch the elements.; vainly they
examine the still and glassy ocean ; vainly
the sails woo the stagnant airs. Every thing
is dull and dismal. They have one hope—
This Cannot Last Always—and while they
have bread to cat and a God to pray to, to
despair would be criminal: At last they see
the waters crisping in the sun ; at last they
feel the breath of the breeze on their cheeks
gradually the broad wings of the ship fill and
the.noble vessel sweeps on, instinct with life
and with joy.
An hour may change the calm that has set
tled down upon the business world. All that
trade wants now is a pretext for .revival.—
Capital has grown sick of its profitable lei
sure, and any fair opportunity will be em
braced. Our care should be that we.may not
be swept down in the first burst of the revi
val. So many minds have been ripening, so
many intellects have been scheming, so many
plans have been projecting, that in the rush
forward thousands may be trampled under
foot. But is not this a lesson of life, after
all ? The thirsty army, long without water,
crowds in a mad torrent to the crystal stream,
and many perish for indulgence in that which
.all have so warmly prayed for.
Let us look around us, and see how we are
prepared for the change. "Philadelphia is a
creditor city," says a New York journal,
"while ,Boston continues largely in debt to
New York." There is hope in this, and
above all, hope in the fact (in our inexhausti
ble coal trade) that mainly makes it so.—
There is hope in the. fact that our railroad
companies have not broken ; that we have the
best and surest connections - with the great
West ; . that our banks are safe; that our peo
ple, though poor, are content ; and that we
have learned how to economise and to help
each other. This good old Pennsylvania of
ours, when the hour of a revival in trade
shall arrive, will be the flag-ship of the
squandron of States, leading the van of all
others, because able, from her capacious
stores and exhaustless resources, to feed a
starving world. There is a glorious hope in
in this:—Tlte Press.
Tun STEAM PLonon.—At the late - meeting
of the Pennsylvania Agricultural Society, the
Secretary called attention to the fact that a
steam plough had been put in operation in
Lancaster county by Mr. Fawkes, of Christi
ana. lle said that in England the steam
plough had already been successfully intro
duced. They were taken through the agri
cultural districts by their owners, who plough
ed farms by contract, at the price of seven
shillings sterling per acre, the capacities of
the machine being an acre and a quarter per
hour. The plough invented by Mr. Fawkes
has a horse merely to guide it, the weight
comes entirely on the centre wheels, which
are surrounded by a revolving track. The
track is affixed to the wheel and receives the
weight, and is so admirably arranged, that
even on wet ground, it scarcely leaves an im
pression. The machine was tried last week
in Lancaster county, and was represented to
have been highly successful. He was glad to
see that thesubject Was attracting attention,
and hoped that the society would take some
means to bring it before them. It requires but
one man, is six feet wide, and drives six
ploughs at once. The attendant stands upon
the plough while in motion.

F..: half a century, these Springs have been celebrated
tneir Medicinal qualities, and the Great Virtue of the
water, in Rheumatic or Chronic affections. The tempera

caught in Stone creek.
Persons in pursuit of health or pleasure will find this a
most delightful and healthful retreat: and its nearness to
the Pennsylvania Railroad, and the cheapness of the rates
charged guests, give it a decided advantage over any other
watering place in the State. TheProprictorhas had years
