Boston, July 30. Th Journal publishes
the reason which actuated the Chinese gov-'
ernment in recalling its young men who were
students at Hariford. It seems that the
emperor a yeonao dispatched a mandarin
of high rank to Hartford to enquire into the
workings of the educational commissson.
This individual has never been outside the
limits of his native land and possesses only
book knowledge of foreign customs. On
reaching Hartford he was horrified at find
ing that the wards of his nation had become
Americanized to an alarming degree, some
being so far acclimated as to have parted
with their pig tails. The shock was too
great for the nerves of the conservative func
tioeary. Yung Wing, the able head of the
commission, fai ed in his efl'ort3 to clear
away the prejudice of his visitor, who de
clared that the effect of their sojourn was to
alienate the boys from their courtry aud its
customs: to undermine the most sacred tra
ditional principles of the government and
society, and to implant and foster seditious
ideas which would become the germ ot social
if not civil and religious discords among
their own people. The whole influence and
tendency of the mission was psrnicious and
dangerous in the extreme. He therefore
recommended immediate abandonment of
the enterprise and recall of all the students,
and this course has been adopted by the
New York, July 23 The Tribune, on
Conkling's supporters, says: Nothing can
restore those members the measure of con
fidence and respect from their constituent
which they once enjoyed. Conkling's con
duct has alineated every friend. Men who
admired him most hardly two mouths ago
are those who feel mast keenly the wrong
he has done them. People have watched
his behavior with growing disgust. There
is little probability that Rosco Conkling
will ever resume his place in public affairs.
JNext to Uonklmg the democratic party
suffers, jt has played the tail so long, and
has been wagged so obediently, that it will
be very hard hereafter to gain for that party
the respect of good citizens.
The Sun says: Conkling has reached the
full meridian of life, and his recent mistakes
and foibles cannot be overlooked in tlie gen
erous spirit which pardons much of the in
discretion of youth. He stands facing a
dark if not rayless future. No rainbow of
promise spans his sky, nor in the order of
