Washington, Aug. 13. The Chi
nese minister has given formal notifica
tion to Secretury Erarts of the decis
ion of his coverniuont to extend the
commercial activity of the empire by
revoking the ancient decree prohibiting
subjects from engaging in commercial
relations with foreign ports, aul that
in future the greatest platitude will be
accorded Chinese merchants who may
dosire to engage in foreign trade. As
evidence of th's important step, the
Chinse minister informed Secretary
Evart5 that a steamer owned by Chi
nese merchants and manned by Chinece
officers and crew wouxl arrive at San
Erauei.co shortly with a enr'o, and
this would be the beginoing of active
steam r trade between China and the
United States. The secretary, speak
ing on the subject, said that there was
more signification in this growth of
progressive ideas in China than might
be supposed. To day nearly nine
tenths of the commerce of China is car
riod by American and European hous
es end ships on Chino3e account. Ry
releasing Chinese merchants from re
strictions ond the oenalties of the im
perial decree hithertb ih voguo. anrf
compelling them to tlse foreign houses
as intermediaries between the author
ities at Pekin and native merchants at
treaty ports, this cuormoils trade wiR
at once full exclusively into1 nat've
hands and will break up' the? lucrative
commercial operations of foreign hou
es; Its insignificance diplomatically
may also be importrtnt and nlay intro
duce some unexpected problems of com
merce and diplomacy for the United
States commissioners now on their way
to Pekin to solve. The secretary ad-
mits that with her che'ap labor, tno
mous maritime population along hrr
givat line of coast from Corea to the"
confines of Cochin Chinrt, arid the re
markable shrewdness of her merchants,
in time the commerc of the world maV
be seriously affectad by this new cotu
petttor for cargoes at cheap rates.
PRAIRIE CITY ITEMS. -
Prairie City, Aug, 2G, 1880'.
Ea. News: I now take" tlie lib-1"
ertr of sending you a bit of news
from the upper end of the valley,
as you have not heard from us for
some time. We are doing as well
as the weather will permit and have
started to make hay while the sun
shines. The prospect is fair at pres
ent. The grain looks well, though
a little late, and if the frost will give
us time and markets aro good, "we
willdo well yet. There are lots of
pleasure seekers visiting the Springs
and all seem to enjoy themselves.
This part of valley is greatly faTor-
ed by getting rid of one of the worst
bummers the county was ever troub
led with. He has leff for warmer
parts as it was too cold here, in fact,
took too much manual labor to get
clothes, after bumming around here
two or three years and taking more
awa' than he brought, from all ac
People living at this end of the
valley might look to their bands of
horses as there has been four head
drove away that were not bought
One of our oldest citizens thought
he would take a hunt, the other day
and so he got uj bright and etfrly,
took his horse and gun and found
a band of deer and, after dogging
them a quarter of a mile, he got a
good chance, took aim and lo, and;
behold, his trusty gun missed lire
He tried 'Ji again with the satue re
suit and he came to find out that he
had left his cartridge at home. Hop-'
ing not to weary you, I remain,
