that drawing his pistol both fired

THE NEW CHINESE TREATY.
It is Called a "Farce by a Paper
Published in China
SUaiutfuU Merrnn . .laiiuatn 11th.
All the terms of tlie Chinese
treaty wiUi the United States were
not published iu tlie American
pHHrs. One significant stipula
tion is that no 1'nited States citi
zen is to be allowed to deal in
opium, nor any United States ves
sels to carrv it. There is only one
United States steamer trading on
the coast of China now, so that it
is an innocuous stipulation for the
citizens of tlie great republic, while
it suits tlie Chinese. In making
treaties the Chinese have usually
had a tabby. For instance, in the
treaty with Sjain, the Chinese
introduced a clause that only sal
aried consuls were to be ap
pointed, and every subsequent
treaty contained a similar clause.
Now every treaty is to have a
clause about opium, and another
about Chinese coolies. The first
may go on very well until they
have a question with Great Britain,
when we fancy there will be a diffi
culty. The second has been in
serted in more than one treat', the
Brazilian, we suspect. It is in
tended to benefit the China Mer
chants' Steam Navigation company
probably more than the coolies.
We may remark that we hare been
in possession of the foregoing in
formation for some time, from our
Peking correspondent, but we
were not at liberty to publish it
until the rest of the information
lately received from America was
published in some other quarter.
The treat, as a whole, may be
looked upon as a farce, and was
intended probably as an elec
tioneering move. It abolishes the
Burlingamc convention, and allows
the United States to do as they
please about Chinese immigrants.

Iu something written we have an
indistinct recollection of having made
reference to a general disposition
among boys in their teens, as well as
boys of inaturer years, to enlighten
and bles the world with their pro
found knowledge of the horse ami his
histor. Our books ami newspapers
are full of this kind of literature, and
it varies in style from the production
of the child at school, commencing
with: The horse has four legs ami a
tail; up to the eloquent tribute of the
scholar when he quotes from Jeb: That
his neck is clothed with thunder and
the glory of his nostrils is terrible.
He smelleth the battle afar oti', the
thunder of the captains ami the
shouting. Between these two ex
tremes of the child at his first school
couiHsitiou, and the professional
literature, we have every made of pre
tention, and each professing to have
mastered the whole subject. As we
approach the close of this nineteenth
century, we begin to look for some
thing better in this department of
knowledge from those who assume to
instruct." And it is to be found in
Kendalls Treatise on the horse, sent
by mail to any person for twenty-five
