are tied on the outside of the roda by
means of red cords passed through the

ot this kind are suspended at the heads

They n chiefly used in house or
rooms where persons have committed

sick people sometimes resort to them
in the hotie of hastening their recovery.
Their cfllcacy is no doubt fully equal
to that of a horse-shoo nailed over a

to hear it cry he think, it a presage
of good luck, it being a eheoriul sound,
and, therefore, so to puok, a note of
encouragement. The Chinese, how
ever, have proverb respecting the

or a burial place selected, it Is neeessary
to consult certain proftitworM of the oc

frequently perambulating and oxainin

decision lor month they will fix on
some particular place. If, after all the
expense and trouble of consulting the
cheats who profos the art, ill-fortune
rather than good should attend the
parties, this is, of oourso. attributed to
anything except the inefficiency of the
loong Buncy. This term may In gen
eral be constmod by the word luck, and
it has been Supposed that in a country
like China, where nearly all long jour
neys are performed by water, 'good
wind and wator,' or in other words
good luck in a journey, has by degrees
come to signify good luck in every cir
cumstance and condition of life." We
are inclined to think that Sir John
Davis, writing as he did at a time when
tho manners and customs of the Kin-
pi ro were not so well understood by
foreigner as they are now, doo not
lay sufficient stress on the imitortance
which the Chinese attach to their doc
trine of Feng shui, for it is undoubtedly
a very serious stumbling-block in the
way of progress of Kuroean civiliia-
tion in mo country, n non tne Chinese
have no other argument left to or ire
against an innovation they take their
stand on the Feng shui, and it would
seem as it no amount ot reasoning were
sufficient to remove the obstacle, which
to a civilised mind appears nothing
more man a ridiculous superstition.
In conclusion, we would say a few
words resjiecting tho dragon (Lung),
which holds a striking position in the
anoctiona ol thia auperstitiou people.
With thorn "it is frequently represented
as the greatest benefactor of mankind ;
and it is the dragon which cause the
cloud to form and the ram to full."
The true dragon, with five claws on
each of its four feet, i appropriated to
me r.inperor, as the emblem ot imperial
powor. It likeness is embroidered on
nismne ol stale, and his throne' is
called the dragon's scat, "(The Kmpress
is represented ny the phtrnix rong.)
Dr. H. Wells William, in his "Middle
kingdom, observes with some quaint-
ness: "J he old dragon, it might be al
most said, has coiled himself round the
Emperor of China, one of tho greatest
upholders of his iiower in the world.
and contrived to get himself worship-
d through him by one-third of the
nan race." The true dragon is rep-
poscnteu as Having no ears and with
two honis on its forehead, through
which it is supposed to hear, and it
hotly is said to bo covered with scale.
The fable runs that it never reveals its
entire form to mortal man, always par
tially shrouding itself in cloud. Ac
cording to some, water-spou ts are caused
by the movement of the dragon ; and
in time of drought supplication are
made to it, as a kind of rain god or rain
king, by the Emporor and the people
of China.
The Chir.-'tw often make nsa of an
inferior sort of dragon in pictures, de
vices, etc.; and at the holiday festival
of the ncV year "a cloth imace of the
dragon," we are told, "is exhibited at
theatres in the nighttime, and paraded
in the public streets, being moved and
worked by men. It is represented as
pursuing a large pearl or ball, which is
carried a little iu advance of it, the
whole being lighted with candles. This
is a popular sjiort, and ia called 'play-

Walking is the best, most convenient

and sedentary persons. But to make
it effectual certain underlying rules
and principle shoultl be observed.
Fanciful notions must give place to
physiological common sense.
1. An hour's walk, two miles and
back, should be taken daily in the open

ol the year. Aimless sauntering is
worth nothing, and on an empty stom
ach is injurious. The walk aliould be

low mo, gentlemetf; to recall to your
recollection the fjtcts relating to tbe
first President' compensation and
At tho first session of tbe first Con
gross, which assembled in New York
on the fourth of March, 17B9, a Com
mittee of twelve members of the House
of liprescntativo wo apoiiited to
take into consideration the compensa
tion of the President, Vico-I'reident
and member of both House, and to
report upon the same at their con
venience. Tbe Committee had the
matter under consideration for several
months. Thia long delay was owing
in part, to the very great difference of
opinion among the niombor as to the
amount of tho different salaries. Somo
of them were disposed to fix the Prosi
dent'o salary as low as fifteen thousand
dollars, and other wero inclined to
place it as high as seventy thousand.
At length tbo Committee reported, ad
vising that tho salary of tho President
be twenty thousand dollnrs a yr. n,l
that he lie provided with a ftirnishod
house, secretarioa, clerk, plate, car
riages and homos, at the public expense.
On the thirteenth of July, 1789, tho
House of Representatives took this re
port into consideration, and debated it
at considerable length.
Tbe clause relating to the providing
of a house and equipage was at once
objected to, and it was moved to strike
it out, which led to an animated dis
eussion. Mr. Tucker was of opinion
tbat lor a new President to buy plate
and furniture would subject him to
great inconvenience, unless he received
a year's salary in advance and when
he retired to private life, they would
not sell for half their firat cost. He,
therefore, wished the public to provide
house, furniture and plate, but not
homes and carriages
Mr. Madison, afterward President,
thought tbat homo and carriages
would also cost a new President a great
deal of money, and would not sell for
much upon Lis retirement, lie was
therefore of opinion that, if furniture
and plate should bo providod, equipsgo
should be also.
Mr. Stone favored tho payment of a
sufficient salary, without any extras.
The President, he thought, ought to
live in any style he judged most proper.
"But," suid ho, "if you furnished Lim
with a house, horses and carrioges,you
declare that thia is the house, the horse
and the carriage which ha shall use.
But be may not choose to use them.
Ho may prefer equipage more splendid
or more pluin ; and surely, if a Presi
dent choose to live in an economical
manner, we ought not to prevent
Mr. Vining, on the contrary, wa of
opinion that the President of the United
States, being the representative of tho
Nation, was bound in propriety to
maintain a certain appearanco of dig
nity, and tho House bail a right to
show what they expected of him in
this respect
After further debute, it was decided
to strike out the clatiae assigning the
President' homes, carriage, ftirnittiro
and plate at the expense of tho public,
and to pay him a salary large enough
to admit of hi providing these things
for himself.
Then arose tho question, what should
be tho amount of the salary ; and this
led to another day' dobate. One
gentleman proposed to pay the Presi
dent twenty-six thousand dollar for
the first year, and sixteen thousand
dollar for every other year. Ho pro
posed, also, that be should bo paid ten
thousand dollars the first year in ad
vance, to meet the great exponses of
providing a house and equipage. Oth
er gentlemen favored thirty thousand
dollars a year: and at length, upon
motion of Mr. John Page, of Virginia,
the sum was fixed at twenty-five thou
sand. ,
President Washington, before thin
decision had been reached, had ordered
a handsome coach from England, which
arrived in the course of the year 1789.
This vehicle, of which Mr. Lossine haa
given the publio an engraving and a
description, was a very handsome and
substantial structure. The body and
wheels were of a cream color, then
vory fashionable, with gilt relief, and
tli body wo suspended upon the old
fashioned, heavy leather straps, like
uiose upon wnicn tno auge-ooaebca
were formerly suspended. Part of tho
side and front wore shaded by green
Venetian blinds, Inclosed by black
leather curtains. The lining of the
coach was of black glossy leather.
The Washington arm were handsome
ly painted on the doors, with the motto
porlectly charactonBtio of n ash-
uigton Exitut alio probat the result
prove actions. Vixm each of the four
panel of tho coach was a picture im-
llemutic of one of the seasons, exocnted
by an Italian artist of reputation.
In this substantial vehicle the Tro.
dent used to ride about Manhattan
Island, which ftirnished ono of the
most beautiful drives in the world,
called the "Fourteen Milo Hound?'
It led up what is now the Bowery and
Third Aventio, then called the Boston
Road, which commanded a beantifhl
view of the East river, lined with farms
and country-seats; then across tho np
per part of the Island, and down by
the Bloomliigtklo road (Broadway) to
tho city again. It is impossible to im
agino a more lovely combination of
cultivated land, lofty bluff, and living
water, than this ride must havo pre
sented In tho early day.
Usually, tho general had only four
hotucs haincscd to hi coach, but in
traveling between the seat of Govern
ment and Mount Vernon, it was often
a matter of necessity to nso six. Mom
bora of Congress may rust assured that
this coach, its home, and all it ap
purtenances, were paid for with General
Washington's own money. It wan an
honest conch in ovcry rtwpect ; for at
tho end of tho second term it bnllder
eamo to America and settled In Alex,
andria, where tho General informed
him that not a nail or screw of the
vehicle had started. Fifteen yenr af
ter the death of General Washington,
when it becamo the property of the
lato Bishop Meatl, of Virginia, it pi
still a sound, serviceable coach, though
too heovy for ordinary use. Its subse
quent history I th-J related by the
Bishop :
"Becoming an object of desire to
those who delight in relic, I caused it
to be taken to piece and distrilmted
among the admiring friends of Wash
ington who visited nty house, and also
among a nunilvor of female association
