- The BcbclJion in China.
The rebellion in China is now known to
if of.the most formidable character, and
jhe reformers, or revolutionists, or what-
else they may bo called, have trav
ersed so much of the Empire, and so ma
ny of the large cities and populous dis
/r'icts have already yielded to thejr power,
" work of successfully revolutioniz
es e®. whole kingdom is now more than
half completed. What the particular ob
■ject of the revolutionists is, or what refor
feotion eey pretend to effect does not ap
.jfffi: to be very clearly explained. But
the fact that wherever they have conquer,
ed, and secured a foothold the peoplescem
*> well satisfied that they make no com
plaints, and in no instance, as far as known,
■h*y® they attempted to repossess them
selves of the adminis*ration thus over
ibrown. This speaks loud in favor of the
of the revolutionists, is of itself suf
ficient to enlist the attention, if not the fa
vorable .consideration of all Jiboral govern-
If we are to credit our present
hibwiedge of the Chinese Government un

despotism of the mosttyranjeal character;

lizod nations, will be more intently fixed.
To this signal interest and importance of
the mission alone, we presume, it is owing
that Mr. Walker, whoso political antcco.
dents so eminently fit him for tho work
before him, has abandoned his well known
preference for private life, and undertaken
this high and difficult diplomatic service.
His general views in favor of a liberal
commercial policy are well known to the
country and to the world. Under the
tariff of 1840, our revenue, ns well as our
[imports and exports, have .been doubled,
and the prosperity of the country is unpre
cedented. W hate vet opinions may be en
tertained by the few who still advocate the
protective policy ns regards his views in
connexion with reciprocal trade with Eng
land, there can be none who will doubt
the propriety or his opinions in regard to
an. enlarged trade and commerce with
China, and the East; and wo presume
.there is no American who will not desire
his success in the great and important
mission now intrusted to.his care.
Mr. Walker’s views in regard to our
trade with China and Asia are fully set
forth in his several Treasury Reports, and
especially in that of December, 1848. In
that report Mr, Walker concluded his viowd
on this subject with the following prophe
tic remarks:
“Our ports upon the gulf, with thoso up
on both oceans fronting upon Europe from
tho East, and Asia from tho west, occupying
the central position between all the conti
nents of tho globe, nearer to them all by
convenient routes than any other nation,
[including an easy access to the whole in
terior of our own country, we want only
tho ocean steamships of adequate strength,
speed, and numbers, to give us the com
mnndof the trade of all nations. Nor
should wo forget that, in carrying our
trade among the great and populous na
tions of Asia, and facilitating intercourse
I ,ba f vast region, passing from coast
| to . c ,? ast * n the short period of twenty days,
with monthly or weekly steamships, tho
light ofChristianity, following the path of
commerce, would return with all its bless
ings to the East, from which it rose. In
t/iose regions commerce, must be the pre.
curser ofChristianity: commerce, which
loaches peace and intercourse between na
tions; which declares that man is not the
enemy of man, nor nation of nation; but
that the interests of all countries and of
all mankind are rapidly under the goneral
influence of an unrestricted reciprocal
trade and intercourse. . /
“By your-recent acquisition on the Pa
cific, Asia has suddently become our
neighbor, wjth a placid intervening ocean,
inyiting our steamships upon the track of
a commerce greater thanthat of all Europe
I combined. I his commerce is ours, jfour
merchants and government should, by
their united energies, secure for us wjth
Asia a rapid and frequent communication
by steam. .Oui products and our manu
factures, .and especially our coarse cotton
fabrics, ore precisely what are desired by
several hundred millions of their people,
vvho. will send us back in return their
specie and their rich productions, so few
of which are raised within our limits.”
tj ** 18 not a little remarkable that the
■ I predictions of Mr, Walker, as regards the
ad vent of Christianity in China as tho re
suit of increasing trade and intercouse,
Jseem on tho eve of fulfilment, os in
dicated in tjie proclamation in favor of
Christianity by the rebel chief—not im

Havana, Juno 8, 1853.
You cannot conceive tho distrust and
| anxiety which the mysterious policy of Eu
rope is inflicting on this ensiaved people.
We knotv not what to do—what to cx-
P ec t on whom to depend. Our condition
of suspense is insufferable ; but this dread
of tho projects of Spain and England, and
our trust in tho magnanimous policy of tho
American Union, have nevertheless pro
duced some excellent fruits in tho way of
union and organization. The Cubans of|
every"-rank and calling, even to those chil
dren of luxury who formerly said, ‘‘wo
are rich and prosperous and desire no
change,” have been forced to observe the
insecurity ofall this wealth and indulgence.
Tho most loyal and distinguished adhe-i
rants ofSpnin have had sons and nephews
thrown into dungeons, and sent into mis
eruble exile for mere suspicion of enter
| taining liberal sentiments, and even their
delicate and stainless daughters have been
dragged to filthy prisons, and cast into
those abominable houses of correction,
among brutal and dissolute criminals, for
no offence, or suspicion of offence, but the
utterance of republican ideas. The spirit
of persecution has been so regardless of
justice and decency that no age, sex, or
class has escaped its cruelties, and all
classes, therefore, are now united in plans
of resistance. Revolution i 3 inevitable.
There is not a intelligent man on the island
who is not concious that a terrible crisis
is at hand. Ho must bo in lamentable ig
norance of the true state of Cuba who de
nies this sombre fact. The languague
and conduct of tho British officials quar
tered about us add new anxieties to our
critical position. Tho determination of
Great Britian to organize and take under
her orders all tho Africans, which (con
trary to her bonds of slave-trade suppres
sion) she is always planting here, is
haughtily declared at tho British consulate.
When we point out the danger to our ru
ral villages which the sudden license of
thirty or perhaps fifty thousand idle unciv
ilized, and ferocious negroes, from the sav
age shores of Africa, would produce, the
British officials make answer that this is
not their business ; their duty stops with
putting these Africans in civic equality
with us. -
Many families are selling their property
at enormous sacrifices, and leaving the
island. Fine estates are being offered for
half thier Value, and there is no saying
where this depreciation of real estate may
atop, probably at no point short of a revo
Two years ago—yes, one year ago—

and few Spaniards, believe the present
slate of things canoxist another entire year
For my part, I believe that all these cruel
ties are not practised by the Spanish offi
cials m the hope of preventing the loss of
the island. They are inflicted in brutal
vindictiveness, because poor, enslaved Cu

There is a supposition afloat—l know
not on what grounds, though rumor attrib
utes it to the officers of the British squad

Their Remittance of Gold—Return of\
Eight Men to their owners—Efforts of\
the Abolitionists to detain them—Resis
tance of the Blacks, and their safe ar
rival home.
Moboantoh, N. C., May 23,1852.
In reply to the ideal cases which the fa
natical writers of the anti-slavery portion
of the American press cite, and the absurd
stories which the abolitionists orators pro
pagate, in order to impress their readers
and hearers with the belief that the Ne
groes of the South regard their owners
with abhorrence, and sigh for emancipa-j
tion, I beg to inform you of a few tangible
and positivo facts, which will tend to prove)
most clearly that the contrary feeling ex
ists amongst them, and that they will re
member, respect, and even return to their
masters, from a state of freedom enjoyed
under the most alluring circumstances.
Amongst the passengers who arrived in
your city by the California steamer, upon
the 13th of thismonth, were seven or eight
slaves, returning from the gold-diggings of
that country to their owners, who are all
planters residing in this neighborhood.
Four of these men had been in Califor
nia for about two years, and for the last
twelve months they have had the entire
control of their own actions and opera
During nil this time they were quite
successful in gold digging, and have been
in tho habit of regularly transmitting tho
proceeds of their labor to this part of tho
continent—sometimes by means of drafts
drawn in California, and others by express.
Having lately determinedto return,they
arrived in New York, as above mentioned, I
and remained there for three days. They
were immediately “hunted up” and sur
rounded by your abolitionists and free soil
ers, from whom they received the most
pressing invitations, and by whom tho
most earnest entreaties were used, in order
to induce them to remain, so as to form
part of an exhibit against tho institutions
of the Southern portion of the Union.
But it was all in vain; they took their
departure at the time previously arranged
for amongst them; and leaving your fa
natics and sympathizers behind, turned
their faces toward the old North State
once more.
When they arrived in Philadelphia they
were subjected, to a repetition of tho same
attentions from a section of the same class
inhabiting that city, but the result was
equally barren in profit to the cause of
psuedo-philnnthropists, and the men arriv
ed here in the last stage, all ingood health
and spirits, and seemingly most happy in
the recollection that they had ‘saved them
selves from their Northern friends.’
There are at the present moment some
one hundred and fifty negroes, from” this
and an adjoining county, in California,
where they are daily engaged in mining
with great success and profit;.and from!
the firm disposition with which they have
resisted all the evil influences which are
brought to bear upon them by a restless
party, which disgraces and disturbs the
country, I have no doubt but they will all
in like manner return to their owners, un
less prevented by tho decrees of Provi
denco alone.
The owners of those slaves, and tho en
tire South, owe them n debt of gratitude,
not only for their firm adherence to hon
or, but also for their manly resistance of
that party which is equally tho bane of the
block man and America.
I write in much haste, and I will ask of
ypu to insert thi3 in the columns of the
Herald, in order that if the “Cabin” wri
ters of the day should ever wish to find a
“Key of Truth” regarding the slave ques
tion, they may search for it in the inde
pendent columns of that journal. In haste,

the County Temperance Convention, to be
held at the Court House on . the afternoon
of Monday next. It is to “devise meusures
to secure a Temperance Candidate for the
Legislature,” not to nominate. That a
nomination of a candidate for that office
will be a part of the measures, no one eith
er knows or can affirm. If the existing
parties, or either of them, will give us re

out our wishes, it is all we ask. We hope

The recent disasters to vessels ajad on

Times compiles a summary statement bf
the disasters, os received between the dates
of April 1 ahd May 18, which we subjoin,
j as painfully interesting:

in this city, Monday, May 9th.
Total. —Loss of life, during three
months, on sea and river steamers, 307 ;
on railroads, 66. Aggregate loss, 433.
From this statement, it will be seen that
upward of 400 persons havo lost their
lives, during the transit from place to place
on our various routs of travel, in the short
space of three months. Beside the wrecks
of sea-going vessels, attended with loss of
life, no less than three first class steamships
havo foundered—each containing a large
number of passengers, varying from one
hundred and fifty to six hundred persons
on each vessel. These were rescued by I
strenuous exertion; but, under less favor
able circumstances, they might havo beeni
added to the list of dead. Those results
indicate a lamentable laxity of discipline,
a want of energy, and an absence of fore
sight, which demand the most vigorous in

and Paris, that although the Emperor bf
Russia might make some demonstrations
against Turkey by menacing, or even by
’ crossing t|io Denubean frontier, yet that
actual hostilities would be avoided by a di.
plumatic settlement of the question.
Telogrsphic despatches from Vienna
state that tho Russian forces had already
commenced their march towards Moldavia
and Wnllncia.
Tho fourth army corps had already been
ordered from St. Petersburg, to proceed
from Warsaw by forced inarches to Bessa
rabia. Tho Turks on the other hand,
were not idle and wero preparing for a
vigorous resistance. The Egyptian fleet
and an army of 30,000 men were proceed
ing to the support of the Sultan, whilst the
Turcoman chiefs were raising 100,000
men free of expense lo the Porte, for the
defence of tho Islamism.
Notwithstanding these portentous signs, it
was generally thought peace would be pre
served. The Meditation of Austria and
Prussia was spoken of. Count Nesselrode
had also arrived in London with despatch
es. The most recent intelligence, how
ever is that published in a third edition of
the Times of the 7th inst.,'to the effect
that tho Emperor of Russia had despatch
ed a courier from St. Petersburg to Con
stantinople, with a demand that Prince
MenschikofF’s last proposal be accepted.
The fact, says the Times is favorable
to a pacific solution of the dispute as at
first appeared to be, and sending of anoth
er courier is fresh proof that tho symptom
of temporization and hesitation commen
ced by Prince MenschikofF Is continu
ed by the Emperor himself..
Although it was still fully thought on
tho receipt of this news that the peace of
Europe wouldijftfrhe broken, yet, the fur
ther dcvelopement of the affair was most
anxiously awaited.
