CHINA AND JAPAN. peculiarities of the People of the Celestial Empire. A Visit to a Tea Garden and a Chinese Theatre. Wonderful Neatness of tbe Japanese Men and Women. Transcendent Beauties of the Inland Sea. Extraordinary Motal Statue of Buddha at Nara. p ritate Letter from a Young Chicago Oentlman, Kiors, Japan, April 2, IS7o.—Tho Chinese ver nacular Is Indisputably tho strangest language txtant, and after hearing a few phrases uttered In this odd tongue, no reasonable Individual can Joubt Max Mueller’s statement that If “ ba ba” bo properly pronounced, it signifies " three ladles gave a box on tho cor tq tbo favor ite of the Brlncot” Perhaps a people who de light In dwarfing trees, who gloat over the tor ture of their follow-mcn, and who aro as tricky is they aro superstitious, need a monosylabic language of this nature; but how “John” tould ever luvvo tho heart to mutilato our mother longuo and creato that extraordinary jargon, termed “ Pigeon English,” Is certainly beyond py powers of comprehension. i 1 stood with tho Rev. Mr. Baynes one day on file “ bridge ” of the Apcar, and seeing a China man with an ape on tho deck below, expressed a Qcslro to got a hotter view of the animal. Whereupon my companion sang out “ Talkco Umk monkey eomco topside 1” a request which sas Immediately compiled with, though it jounded obscure to my Western cars. ■ 81nco dispatching my letter from Hong Kong, I have passed through strange and varied ex periences, all of which have been of a thorough ly cnjoyahlo nature and replete with Inter est. Leaving Hong Kong In tho steamer Oulong ou the morning of tho 14th of March, hearing In onr minds tho happy rem iniscence of a big dinner given us by the Rev. Baynes, wu started on our journey northward, having tho northeast Monsoon still against as, which, together with a dense fog. lengthened out our trip to Shanghai lo five days, instead of three and a half, which Is usually required for tho voyage. H lt Is seldom that the gods descends from Olympus, and when they do, let .us entertain llicm right jovially,” seems to ho the maxim of of our jolly crowd, and so the stiff breeze merely heightened our appetites and raised our spirits (if it were possible to get them any higher), and when wu were at anchor during the fug wo amused ourselves In PISUINO FOR SHARKS, which were never caught. But perhaps it was this fact which made thumorriincnt run so high. Entering tho yellow flood of the Yong-tzc-Kiahg, which, next to tho Amazon and Jusslsslppl, is the largest stream In the wocld, wo approached Shanghai tho evening of tho 18th. It was here that wo had our first “jinricksha” ride, tho vehicle resembling exactly atwo-whccled Imby coniagc, though, of course, of exaggerated pro portions. The eoolcy, standing between two fills, dashes along at an astonishing pace, and I assure you wo presented quite a pictur esque appearance as we were whisked oiT to tho Central Hotel, the bladder lanterns (distended by means of a deli cate framework of bamboo) hanging from the fills of tho unique carriages, causing ns to look like a lot of veritable “will o’ tho wisps." A mure singular means of locomotion, mid one that Is rarely patronized by tho Europeans, is the wheelbarrow, a one-wheeled contrivance so arranged that there is a scat on either side of the wbool. Strange to say, tho coolies, by adroitly tipping tho barrow, carry one person with apparent cose. Shanghai, a city of 400,000 inhabitants, and tho must active or tho Chinese ports, Is situated on a fiat, uninteresting plain, tho native town being Inclosed with walls, and tho European settlements (English, French, and American) on tho river banks forming tho most Important feature of tho town,—many of tho buildings, being really flue. Tho streets being extremely narrow in tho Chinese quarter, jinrickshas umi wheelbarrows aro not allowed within tho walls. So, taking Sedan chairs, wewero carried through the crowded streets, the dim half-light, the lacquered signs, the gay lanterns, mid store fronts gorgeous In high-colored paint and gilt dragons,—all presenting a striking picture which I wish your eyes might rest upon. Vour noses, however, might well be dispensed with ou the occasion of a visit to this odorous burg, for of all fragrant places. Shanghai 1 certainly carries off the palm. At tho Temple wo found the usual accumulation of Inexplicable rubblsli, while a baud of boy musicians were discoursing hideous music, interceding “ Joss ” for tho restoration to health of a sick man. Wo found much to amuse us In tho street, for aside from tho curious fabrics and attractive ortlclcs offered for sale by Innumerable tradesmen, every available nook and comer was occupied by liawkcra of cakes and confectionery, jugglers, quack physi cians, wandering musicians, mountebanks, and fortunate tellers. Tlio latter piled an especially active trade, their predictions being listened to os If they were Infallible. Wo had A WALK THROUGH A TEA GARDEN (public resort) filled with grotesque work In clone and plaster, which sometimes resolved itself Into a miniature cave, or formed the rude steps of n bridge thrown over on artificial stream. Wo visited a ** mired court " to sec justice administered, saw a number of hard looking wretches wearing the "cunguo"—a huge board arrangement through which the culprit's head is thrust, and which lie is forced to wear exposed to the public gaze—and arrived too iate at tho native Jail to see an offender who was being starved to death for ' an unmentionable crime. The man had been placed in an upright cage so arranged that his head protruded from tho top, While Ills toes Just touched the bottom of tile cage, so that ho really hung by his chin. While strength lusted ho endeavored to relievo the Weight on bis chin by entwining bis legs about me perpendicular burs of bis cage; and then when ms Umhs swelled to twice their natural size, he stripped oil his clothes and attempted to stand on them I As I mentioned before, wo did not see him, death having released him from his suffering before wo arrived. A gentleman Who hod often witnessed this punishment in dicted told mo that it was simply amazing to see tho delight that tlie passers-by take In Watching tho agony depleted ou tho counte nance of tho victim,—seeming to possess not the least grain of feeling for their fellow man. Occasionally some compassionate Individual slips a quantity of opium into tho mouth of tho unfortunate man, thus bringing his suffering to * speedy close, hut usually the culprits are so doscly watched by the officials that it Is hnpos lible to offer any relief to tho tortured prisoner. Ihe streets, with their myriads of colored lanterns lighted up. presented an atlraetlvu ap pearance os our train of Jinrickshas dashed at a mlm Gilpin speed (for wo wero without tho walls) to TUB MANDARIN til BA THE, la odd, roomy structure, with a largo stage, Dunus curtain and scenery, projecting Into Urn auditorium. Wo seated ourselves at a little tame covered with rather unpalatable confec tionery, sliced sugar-cane, and baked seeds, ro (cmbling *thoso of tho pumpkin, aud watched me progress of, tho moat extraordinary play that * nave ever witnessed. There wero demons, mandarins, soldiers, and Chinese Indies (all rep ented by males) without number, out tho -Wei Interest of tho drama centered In adamsul 81 Amazonian proclivities, whoso existence wemed one of continued warfare. If It were tot for tho abominable music (I) kept up unccas “Jg y by a band of musicians seated on the rear tho stage, I should have enjoyed tho perform "‘wi immensely, for tho costumes wero extreme ty rtcli, and tho acting so varied that tho interest never llagged. During tho representation our £ a ;™pa wero kept well filled, and every now juid then steaming hot cloths wero passed around ■u tho audience, and those who desired washed mrir bauds, face, and neck. This was repeated T° °ft(!n that I camu to tho conclusion tills queer proceeding was u means of refreshment rather man on affectation of excessive cleanliness. before leaving Shanghai I met Messrs. Q. H. w*d Charles S. Holt (sons of D. C. Holt, ui our dty,) who were also on their way uome, having played tho rule of traveler fortliu j« wo years. Charming fellows they arc,* and «w.?? Vo Qtfoin to thunk my stars for coming in with such intelligent and amusing men. Uesumiug our Journey, wo left Shanghai v &*° tho sldo-whcel steamer Gulden •pkohanm being our objective point. This steamers Is now under tho “Mltsu “ism Company," a Japanese company, who S*y® purchased tho Padflc Mall boats running !t**wccq China and Japan, bo merry was our that wo left China amid roars of laugh t**» ud arrived at Nagasaki two day# after* wards, still Indulging in sidesplitting guffaw. Thu entranco to this Japanese port Is rcmarlta lily beautiful, thu land-loeked harbor, thu wooded bills, and green terraces forming an at tractive prospect, after the flat country about Shanghai. A "sampan” carried us to the shore, and we were then whirled nwdy by stout legged jlnrlekslmmcn, under long lines of blos soming fruit trees, into tbu dean streets of tbu town. JAPAKRSIt NEATNESS la something wonderful, and of course It (a doubly njiprct'lntftl after Chinese tllrfc nml offensive odors. Still, I mufit confess that I rather missed the rainbow hues, which form such a prominent featureof the *“Celestial” towns, for hero the directs aro very sombre-looking nn a rule, even the lanterns living generally white, with black characters painted thereon. Wo passctl the tiny in visiting “ tortoise-shell shops,” stores for the sale of |xircolaln ware. lacquered work, and silk embroidery, besides climbing 1245 steps to n curious temple situated on tlio Bide of n hill, mid riding to Uecltna, the old Dutch set tlement. The work In shell, though "henp, docs not compare with articles of nHimllur na ture found In Naples; but the porcelain stores were very interesting, containing objects as unique os they are elegant. As for the people, they seem bright and intelligent, and the cos tume worn by tbo ladles I admire greatly, though the habit the married women have of blackening their teeth and shaving their eye brows Is certainly most reprehensible, giving them ft certain scarecrow look which I believe I never could accustom myself to. Mnny of the young women aro really good-looking, their scarlet petticoats, overskirts with enormous fig ures, ami gold-cmhro!dercd neckerchief, mak ing the exact counterparts of those extraordi nary creations that figure so conspicuously ou our cheap fans at home. -• > After spending n most delightful doy mold the oddities of this Interesting town, the steamer resumed her course at midnight the morning of the IMlh. the waters of the bay being so phosphorescent that wc were enabled to rend a business card, which one of tbo members of our party had in hts pocket, by the brilliant light produced by the motion of the steamer. Where tbo waves broke on the Hhorc an clfect was created ns If a continued Hue of bonllres was 1h progress. Occasionally somo finny monster would throw himself out of the water, and the dark sea about him would suddenly resolve Itself Into what seemed to bo a moss of lcaplng flames; while about the steamer the display was so unnaturally brilliant that our eyes ached at bcholdiiig the gorgeous spec tacle. The phenomena of this nature which I witnessed In the lied Sea and Indian Ocean wore really nothing in comparison'with this; and the ofllccrs Informed us that a display so grand is rarely seen; and that they had never experi enced anything more magnificent during their seafaring life. Night hid from our eyes the wonderful natural arch Hint looms above the sea 10 miles from Nagasaki; but the following day wo had our first glimpse of the • TRANBUSNDENT lIEAUTIE3 OP TUB INLAND BBA. One can scarcely Imagine a more entranc ing ensemble of land and water, ver dant hills, abrupt rocks, romantic caves, odd little villages hidden nwny in picturesque ravines, mountain sides singularly terraced and f;recu with the apring-crop,—lu fact a nuver-end ug and over-varyingloveliness that charmed us ' beyond expression. Thu afternoon of this samo day wc anchored before Slmonasnlcl, a port not open to foreigners. So wo were forced to con tent ourselves with n view of the town from tbo deck of the boat. Alter a halt of two hours wo continued our journey, and were up bright and early the followiugmornlng to sco tho Inland Sea by sunrise.'Tho roseate tinge of morning gave to the motionless sea a grand appearance, while the Innumerable and inany-shnped Islands seemed fit abodes for “ fairy folk," sirens, and those dainty people of tho Imagination who ride dolphinsnmlllvo In pearl-lined grottoes. Tho evening of March 20 wo arrived at Illogo, where the steamer was to remain two days, during which time we purposed making an excursion to Osaka (the second largest city In the Empire), which Is 18 miles from Hlogu. Upon Inquiring at the Pacific Mall office before leaving Japan, wo were told that the Belgie, which would soil from Yokohama the 10th ol April, us I wrote In my last letter, was u freight steamer, having accommodation but fur fif teen passengers, and. that in all proba bility cadi cabin would bo occupied by three passengers. After farther inquiry wc loomed that the' Belgie, though a staunch ship, was wretdiod in all her appointments, n fact which even those interested In her did nut see fit to gainsay. At this Juncture my companions abandoned all Intention of going in her, having no Inclination for being from twenty to thirty days at sea under such unfavorable circum stances. 1, however, adhered to my original In tention of Bulling in her. Arriving nt Shanghai 1 received the pleasant Intelligence that there was Just one berth not taken, and that It would ho impossible to reserve a passage until 1 ar rived at Yokohama. Things began to look du bious; and upon boarding the Golden Age mid finding among tbo passengers nine who wished to cross In tho Belgie, and being told by tho Captain that, unless It was a matter of file and death, it was preposterous to attempt sailing in such ft wretched passenger boat, 1 resuiveu to remain in Japan until the 25th of April. In stead of spending all the Intervening time nt Yokohama and icddo, five of us (the Messrs. Holt, Bailey, Elder, and myself) determined upon seeing more of tho country, which wo learned could be done easily and cheaply. Applying to the American Consul, Mr. Newwlttcr (a very accommodating gentle man, by the .way), ho furnished us with posses to enter Kioto, tho former Capital, and even now the most interesting city In Japan; mid applied to tho Government for ‘‘permits " Wldch w ould allow us to traval OVERLAND FROM KIOTO TO YOKOHAMA, a distance of about 200 miles. (These permits were received this morning ) So, after provid ing ourselves with certain requisites, wo sent our heavy baggage ou to Yokohama by the Golden Age, mid took tho narrow-gauge rail way road to Osaka, which Is tiie terminus of tiie route, ami distant from Iliogo 18 miles. Uerewoensconccd ourselves In neuriousenravan fiary for two days, and occupied the time de lightfully in seeing tho sights. Our pleasure was materially enhanced by our being thrown In contact with Dr. A. 1L Adams, a physician missionary, stationed at tills point, who being conversant with tho language, and knowing the whereabouts of tho chief objects of interest, enabled us to see rapidly and intelligently the many unique features of the city. Wo visited the imperial Mint, from which emanates the beautiful new coin of which the Japanese aro so Justly proud; climbed to the fort, containing In Its walls the most colossal stones I have ever seen used for building purposes; and wandered through the shops tilled with attractive articles of most singular design. At tho Soomceyoshl Temple wu saw the white horse, never rhhlcu by man, but kept for tho exclusive use of the presiding deity. Like all the Shinto temples which wu have seen thus Tar, tho shrine con tained no Idols, but in their stead were polished steel mirrors, which are typical of purity of heart, and in which tho devotee loons os he prays, this ceremony being preluded by throw ing a few “cash" into the shrine, ringing aboil, and clapping the hands to attract tlm attention of the god. In one part of the building is a hole looking towards tlm holy city of Issi. which serves tho same purpose ns tho niche in tiie Mo hammedan mosques that point towards Mecca. Bussing tliruugh the forest of stone lanterns, which are placed hero os votive offerings, and surround the temple on every side, wo rode to the handsome pagoda of TonnoJl, at tho gate of which are four praying-wheels, besides two colossal guardian deities, wJUch, to my astonish ment, were completely covered with spit-bulls I Wo learned afterwards that these wads of chewed paper are thrown at tho idols by wor shipers, who ascertain by their spit-bulls ad hering or not whether their prayers are heard! It was very interesting to stroll through the streets at night, Dr. Adams being untiring in his efforts to give us full Information re garding all we saw. Modesty U not a pre vailing trait among tho Japanese, and neither men nor women evinced any embarrassment when wo filed Into a bathing establishment where both sexes, though lu apartments par tially separated, were In a strict state of nudity. It was but a few years ago when both mules and females bathed lu one great tank. The morning prior to our departure from Osaka, wu were entertained at Dr. Adams* house, and tbo next morning wo were bowed out or the city, after tbo Japanese fashion, by this obliging gentleman. Now, wu had decided upon going first to Nora, a town somowluit out of our route, and fur which wo Imd no puss. Yet wu trusted that our permit for Kioto would he sufficient, and besides, wu had set our hearts on seeing a METAL STATUS OP BUDDHA which U here, whose bleu muy ho Imagined when 1 state that a man may climb through Its nostrils Juto Its head. Our appearance on the rood was the signal for ntilto a itttlu excitement, ami, as our Jinrickshas dashed through the llttlo Village. there wu a clutter of wooden shoes us tied Inhabitants rushed to the doors of their singular habitations, while the children stared at us wildly, murmuring “ E-gln-sun I ” (barba rian mutd ns wo rolled by. It was an Intensly novel ttua fascinating ride, and wo all enjoyed it immensely. Our seemingly tireless coolies drew us Into Kara In the middle of the afternoon, wo having como 37k miles since morning, with only an hour’s rest at noon. Wo had great fun upon arriving at the Ua-housu (fur, of course, tiicro were no hotels), us hundreds of the men, wamun, and children of the village gathered about lu the same man ner that wo regard the “wild men of Borneo” lu our museums at homo. Though superlative ly curious, they were very polite, aud wu cm- THE CHICAGO i TRIBUNE 1876, Joyed greatly the astonishment Dint they evinced ut otir manner*, dress, ami genenu hearing. We arrived too late in the day to see Die great Idol, as the temple was closed; an *vo all went to the pagoda- and afterward* climbed In a temple on the hill commanding n magnifi cent view of the valley and surrounding moun tains. Near this point- In a sort of pavilion. Is one of the largest bulls In Japan, after seeing which wo descended to the village, Intending to visit the great Ihuldha tins next day. Notwith standing that wo were admitted Into the town without any questions being asked, the city offi cials saw lit to send word to our guide that we could not remain there during the night. Bo we were forced to leave Nam, riding on In the moonlight to Kiser, n town 2k miles towards Kioto, where we remained until the en suing day. The Japanese tea-houses arc ns neat ns wax; the rooms arc separated one from another by sliding panels of a light framework, covered with translucent paper, which is used Instead of panes of glass. The apartments contain no fur niture, except perhaps a brazier for heating pur poses and an occasional cushion to sit on, though ordinarily we squat on the white straw mats which cover the floor. Our inents uro served to us on lacquered servers, which have legs, and stand about 4 Inches nigh, nnd at night the only bedding which Is supplied us Is n wadded comforter to lie on, and it funny little stool for a pillow. Tills latter article we see lit to Ignore, for we have sufficient wraps nnd blankets with us to take the place 01 native bedding. FHOMKftU TO KIOTO lb Is about 25 miles, mid the afternoon of the Slab of March saw our jovial party roll Into the streets of this attractive city. Here wc found n hotel kept by a Japanese after the European manner; so wo aro again enjoying tho luxury of abed and other features offered by a Western civilization. So wonderful and varied arc the Bights which wo have already seen In this aston ishing town, that I will not even mention them, knowing that wero I to do so my already lengthy communication would assume frightful proportions. There are but six European residents here, three of whom wu have met, as Mr. Newwlttcr kindly gave us a letter to the Rev. J. I). Davis, an American missionary here. We shall remain •here until the fith or oth, and then start for Yokohama, the trip overland requiring a week. Wo anticipate a world of pleasure, for our ex periences thus far Imvo been simply enchanting. ‘ Autiiuu. LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE. MEDICINAL CROOKEDNESS. To the Editor of The Tribune. CrncAao, Mat IB.—I have noticed of late that some one has been making an effort to ventilate “Medicinal Crookedness,” or to complain of certain physicians and druggists who were In collusion with each other, etc. Although one of them subscribes himself “ The Ring in Medl cine,” and his climax was that he had to pay $2.50 for a bottle of eye-water that his doctor said consisted of a few grains of sulphite of zinc and a few ounces of distilled water, I am confident that this writer might ho questioned with propriety os well as the doctors and drug gists. why did he not go to Ids physician first I There is a great wrong hi the community as to the true relation of the physician to the people. There is no relation outsldu ol the family compact more sacred than that which should exist between the people and tire true physician. If thereover existed a greater Infidelity of the people to the merits of the true physician since the days of Eseulaplus than at the present time, I mn ready to bo cor rected. Let honor bo to whom honor Is due. He who has periled life In the pursuit of knowl edge for the prolongation of human existence should not bo outweighed by a secret' nostrum or on Illiterate member of the laity who arro gates to himself the right to prescribe and ad vise for the sick on every occasion. There are many evils and derelictions among physicians and druggists, and a newspaper article might serve ns u hint to their correction. The paltry $1 that Is paid to the druggist for 10 cents original cost fur pure medicine has no comparison to the damage done by secret nos trums taken at random by the laity. The laity’s* prescription for change of climate or a visit to mineral springs Is a haphazard and dangerous allalr. The advice of physicians on those sulh jects In most eases would prove not only a financial interest hut the saving of life. I would not wish the reader to think that physicians arc without faults, nor but whut the people have a right to Investigate them. There are physicians who are uncleanly in the use of their Instru-. ments; this the patient can see. If he Is to bo vaccinated, and he secs the lancet besmeared with the blood of the Inst vlctlnu It would be proper to defer the operation. Hu manity Is subject to Ills enough without being Inoculated with a Virus tlmt may never be fully overcome. You may sleep hi your beautiful room mid breathe noxious gases that fill the apartment os quietly as the lethe of death, mid no one be to blame for your sickness or dentil, fur the accident might be caused by a leak In the soil-pipe made by the settling of the house. Tor the criminal carelessness of physicians and the druggists’ adulteration of medicines the penalty ought to bo great. When the people more fully appreciate them, aud accord to each and the other their proper spheres of action, the benefit will bo mutual. • * A. D. 4 THE PRIMARY SYSTEM. Th the Editor of The Tribune, Chicago, May 13.—Much has been sold daring tbu past year ou tlie purity and Impurity of tbu primaries, but, so fur, nobody lias presented a permanent cure for Impure primaries. The only virtue In them as an Institution is the fact that the result comes direct from the people. Now, If the people will not attend the prima ries, the result must necessarily bo a fraud, be cause It presumes to’come from the people when it does not. If the people stay away from the primaries, hour can they bo any thing but a fraud! This, to my mind,' has been the trouble lu tbe past, and will con tinue unless (be people attend primaries and do their dutv. With this prcfaco permit mo to say that wo of tho Eighth Ward have had our troubles In primaries, but for one. 1 do nut propose to blame tho system, when lb is the people who are really'to blame. Now if the grumbling poli ticians will only take off their gloves and turn out to tho primaries Thursday, call upon their neighbors to do tho some, and vote for a re spectable delegation for tlie Convention, the re sult will prove Hint the people doing their duty, tlie primaries will be pure. In order that a good delegation nmy bo put In nomination, all the honest Republicans should attend a meeting of tho Eighth Ward Republican Club at 50 Slue Island avenue, Wednesday evening. Yours, Eioutu Ward. BETTER MEN WANTED. To the Editor of The Tribune. Chicago, May 13.—1 n view of the Into defal cation which has Just come to light, it behooves tlie citizens of Chicago to place greater safe gaard£|abaut our public moneys than at present enisle. To leave the solo control of large sums of city and county funds in tho bands of any one man seems to mo to bo throwing tempta tion In their way. In nine cases out of ten men take office with intention of honestly accounting for every dollar that pusses through their hands, but, from the records all aver the laud, the tcm]>- tntiou that meets them too often is greater than they cun withstand, and consequence is official corruption and pecuniary loss to tho community. Why not withdraw tlie temptation I It cun easily bo done, and without so trammeling Gio official with red-tape rules as to tho disbursement of moneys In any way cumbersome. First, let our city fathers appoint certain banks as the depositaries of such funds, requiring proper bonus from them for their safely while fn tiiulr charge. Second, require tho Hnonco Committee of tho Council to audit tho Treasurer’s accounts quarterly or monthly: and, lastly, require tbu Treasurer to give bonds as at present. Ry giving proper re muneration to our Treasurer, and controlling the funds in this way, much of tho danger of future defalcations can be avoided. A LITTER LATE. To f ft* Editor (f The Tribune. Chicago, May U.—The late report of the Grand Jury states that Mr. Cochrane, tho archi tect of the Hospital, had given mu the quanti ties of the materials required for the building of tho kitchen aud domitory, boiler-house, aud laundry, aud tho mortuary, ami made it appear In tho report that It was something wrong. In Justice to Mr. Cochrane, I wish to statu that lie gayo me no quantities or figures to basu my bid uu, nor did lie do anything in this connection that was unfair or dishonest, as all lie did was ok my request, to show mu his approximate figures, which 1 understood were m> secret. John M. Dunhiv. Tho I?ie of Tobacco. Dr. B. F. Richardson, F. It 8., lu his “ Dis eases of Modern 1.1fe,” Is an uncompromising opponent to the use of tobacco. Ife refutes, however, the notion that tobacco smoking causes cancer and consumption. Ur. Itichurdsun be lieves that there Is no ground for assuming that organic disease results from tho use of tobacco, but bo bellovcs that functional disorders arc In separable from the habit of smoking, aud the author gives a long description of the various disorders which he believes may be traced to to- bacco. Tho Tantrtf In criticising Dr. HfoTirtrrl son’flwork, thinks that “Ills statement* are probably In tho main accurate as regards tho smoking when excessive, bat that they arc too sweeping wlicii applied to nil smoking, mod erate and slight ns well a* extreme. Some where, however. In tho book Dr. Richardson reluctant!y admits that “ under certain eircuni stances tobacco does help to bring unnatural into natural functions, producing In the over wear! :d brain mental rest, fmrtlnl oblivion of the past, and a tendency to that natural sleep which knits up tho raveled sleeve ol care.” MADAME DE STAEL. A Visit to the Chateau of Coppat* F»r The Tribune, There Is often little satisfaction found In vis iting places made famous by their onro Illus trious occupants; but Madame Dc Btael left her Bwlm home bo comparatively recently, that tho magic of her brilliant presence seems still to lin ger plain chateau. The ride by rail from Geneva to Coppet, where one object of Interest Is the chateau, Is charm ing. Tho blue waters of Lake Leman are on one band; on tin* other, vineyard-clad hillsides slope up to beautiful compagncss most conspic uous among these la tbo princely residence of tho Baron Rothschild. Arrived at Copjict, a minute's walk lakes one to the chateau. It Is a large, old building, with two courts, and Is, I think, quite unchanged ex ternally since It wns Nccknr’s early home. Visitors arc usually shown about by a disa greeable, grumbling old womau, who takes special pleasure In using her authority. Wo were more fortunate. A letter, a few days pre vious, to the Concierge, had put us en rajijx/rt with him, and he was the most indulgent, and patient, uml painstaking of guides. Passing the Inner court, the wide doors of the mansion were opened to us. Ascending a broad staircase, wc entered a spacious billiard-room used by the present occupants. There, the very first object to arrest our attention, was tho pic ture so familiar and so dear to every American, “ The Signing of the Declaration of Inde pendence." Coming to do homage to the mem ory of the brilliant woman who was qu exile from her own country In consequence of the French Revolution, our thoughts were at once directed to tho great stop in our own Revolution. Happy for Franco if she, too, hud been titled for a Republican government when she struck her first blow for liberty! . Taming away from the picture, we passed Into tho salou width contains the family-por traits. Madame Dc Stacl’s Is the central one, at her right hangs her father’s; at her left, her mother’s. Although Ncckor was a skillful Min ister of Finance In trying days in France, and his wife was the most scholarly and elegant woman of her time, they are moat famous as the parents of their gifted daughter. Great energy Is stamped upon the father’s face; peculiar repose the mother’s; while, In the daughter’s, there Is uueouunon vivacity and Intellectual vigor. It seemed to me lacking In the sweetness of expresriftn which Madame Do l Stael must have had as the index of a heart so full of lov ing devotion to her friends. It is most interest ing to notice what tenderness of affection were .united In her to great mental power. Her love for her father amounted almost to Idolatry; she was most fondly attached to her children. Madame Reeannler, Mrs. Randall, and many others, hod constant proofs of her affection. For her own part, she cored far more fur the love of her friends than for their admiration, and was always afraid lest. In their minds, the two senti ments should become confused. Looking away, when wo could, from Madamo Do Htacl’s portrait, our attention was directed to one of the Laron Do Staol, painted when lie was quite young. There are portraits of but two of tbelr children, —of one of the son?, whoso widow now occupies the chateau, and of tlioir only daughter, the Duchess Do Broglie.- Hers Is tliu most attractive face among them all. 'lt is thoughtful, and sweet, and serious almost to sadness. It is said she Inherited many of her mother's superior gifts, and her face indicates as much. We were shown family-apartments la actual nse, ond those of former days; but tl.ey have been changed in all their appointments, and, with the execution of the one which served as Madame Du otaul’s library, have little interest to the stranger. This is a long, spacious mum, with Its walls almost hidden by the now empty book-eases. The books themselves have been removed to Paris by the Due Do BrogUe. On the top of the eases, quite near together, are antique bronze busts of the Creek and Roman heroes of literature and mythology. Between tlie lung windows, on one side of the room, there aru three Interesting por traits. One of Madame De Stael her self, personating the heroine of tier Roman story, “Corlnne.” Her dark complex ion, lustrous eyes, and the ludulent altitude her exceeding grace permitted tier to assume, alt fitted tier to represent well the Italian girl, who, lb Is said, was the reduction of her Inner self. Near by is thu portrait of Schlegel, her friend and adviser for so many years, while he was the tutor of her son. A bust on the mantel, and another portrait of the Duchess Dc Broglie, eunllrm the Impression of a lovelv character, formed from the first one seen. Such a face could but be the mirror of a rare soul. Hut the central object of Interest In the library is n life-sized statue of Neckar. It Is by Canovn, ami Is worthy of that Ideal master. The attitude Is most graceful. With the loft band, lie holds against the breast a sort of cloak; with the right, ho points up and away. The face is following the gesture of the hand, looking up with u loftiness of expression that Is almost In spiration. It is ns if the artist had seen his sub ject with Mndamo l)c Stool’s loving eye* and bo liud cut from tho Bootless marble almost n speaking seiuhlaneu of him who was to his daughter “ the noblest and thu best of men.” Alter all, thu memories that bingo about the chateau at Coppet nro more Interesting than anything our good, kind guide could show* us. Here Neckur sought refuge, again and again, when his ungrateful sovereign thought ho could rule better without a cool brain mm wise judg ment at thu head of thu bureau of Finance. Hither later, herself an exile, Mndamo do titael camo lo shore hcriather’s loneliness; and hero they were happy together, because, though robned of so much, they still had each other. Within these wans many of Madame I)e Stud's ablest works were written,—written with such power that eacli successive one made Napoleon fear her genius more, and so Induced him to make her"banishment more painful. Here Neckar died, and was laid In a little cemetery close to the chateau. Years before, Madame Neckar hod'been bulled In the quiet spot: and, In 1817, Mndumc Ue Stad was placed beside her parents. 6lnce*thcn, other members of tbo family have been laid hero, and those who remain allow, with wise delicacy, the tall trees and high wall to screen the sacred spot from strange eyes. A. C. HE, BUCHANAN. The Come of Ills Collbocy—A Troglo Incident of Ilia ISnrly Life. To (ha Bailor qf Tfio Tribunt. Lancaster I*o., May 10.—'Hie ItUtiUgencer, of till* dty, publishes Urn following: *• CAUdK 01* UUCIIANAN 8 CEUIUCV. ** In on elegant mansion near the Arlington Hotel, lu thin city, resldo two ladles of Uieuldcn aristocracy,—Mrs. Freeman mid her slater, Mias Colenmn. About the latter ludyn little rotimneo clings wbloli makes her JuteroalioK- Shu was tlio second love and the olllanced bride of tbo laic Pres idcnl Buchanan, bis tint love having died In her youth, and until hu met Mias t'ulujnan ho was almost a recluse from Indies' society. Ho was engaged to tier when sunt abroad ns American Minister to the Court of tit. James, in London.* At that time Miss Coleman resided in New York. Ho returned to this country on a visit, and on the evening he arrived Miss Cole* man was giving n grand entertainment. Hu was fatigued, and, instead of dressing mid paying his respects to her immediately, retired to his room, and early nest morning called to see her. tihe had taken one mm at his not calling the evening before, and refused to see him, mid they never met again. What regrets were felt the world has never known, but many an angry Impulse has wrecked tbe happiness of men and women beyond repara tion, Wathinqton Vorrapomitnea OhUvao Jour nal. The amount of fact in proportion to Action In thn above little romance is very small Indeed; the solo romance attached to tlio lady mentioned Is lu being the niece of Miss Auu Coleman, of Lancaster. l*a., who was the first and Only fiancee of tbe Into Presi dent Uacliauau, newspaper reports to tlio contrary, notwithstanding. The incidents connected with that sad mfuir, although occurring when the writer of this was but a youth of 17 or lii years of age, have haunted his memory up to tbo present, when be boa passed tlio allotted threoficoru-aud-ten. I shall briefly statu the circumstances us I re member them. Mr. Iluchauau, then some where In tbo ttvlgbborbood of DO year* of age, had been elected in the fall of IH2O as Member of Congress for tbo luineat tcr District. Thu long session extended. 1 think, into the month of July. It was u hut, dusty sum. mer, and thcalago-coacn then was the only approved means of travel. Thu lUUhuoro coach uHI nut reach tho city until after U o’clock !n the waning. There were several printer-boys waiting tli« arrival of tho stage, who congratulated Hr.-Buchanan on bis arrival borne, and unanimously pronounced him the best-dusted man they had over met. At, that time tbo C’mtrl-Uims# i stood at the* Intersection of tbo four main, streets of tlio city, and Mr Buchanan’s offleo and chambers were lu tlm southwestern angle, Soon alter alighting and chatting a few moments wUbacqnlntauces who happened to bo lu the vicinity, ho went to UU chain-' Observer, l*rs to uadsrgo« tnneh-nerded pnraatton. This accomplished. somewhere about 10 o'clock he stopped out In morning-gown and slippers, and without hat. and promenaded back and forth the an gle, to entch what little breeze wn<t stirring. Miss Grace llnbley, slKer-ln-law to William Jenkins, Hsq.iwlio resided on tho corner of Booth <ia«cn street, (ho terminus of tho southwestern Angle, happening to he sitting In tho parlor with all the windows open, on account of the heat, noticing that Mr. Iliirhnnnn hod returned, went to the door, and, pairing the compliment* of the evening, In viled Mm to walk In, with which ho compiled, and they seated themselves by a large open window ami engaged In conversation. Not more than twenty minutes thereafter an anonymous note was handed In to Miss* Coleman, staling (hat Mr. Buchanan was too tired to call on his affianced, Imt that he could coll on and alt and chut with Mbs llnhlcy. To understand what follows. I most here state Hint Robert Coleman, the father, was a nurse prond. Imperious man, who, having acquired great wealth at a time when millionaire* did not grow on every hush, and iKmsCwdng but little educational advantage, was very Jealous of those whoso culti vation and social position were In advance of his own, scrupulously stood sentinel over Ids own dignity, and was ever ready to resent any fancied infringement of it. On tho night In question there happened to t»o several callers at tho Cole man mansion, who were sitting In the parlor In conversation when the note wim handed by the servant to Mbs Ann. On perusing U tho lady was naturally somewhat disturbed, which was evidenced In her face, and Immediately attracted the attention of the Jealousand imperious old man. who, notwithstanding her remonstrance, switched and read it. His offended dignity was at once Intlrms, mid within the hour his daughter was placed in tho famlly-carringc, and on tho way to Philadelphia, to visit her sister, 31rs. Judge Hemp hill. Knowing the unrelenting nature of tier father, and probably feeling hurl at the Innuendo thus anonymously conveyed to her. although an intelligent and accomplished young lady, and very much attached to her betrothed lover, she became despondent, and In her despair look laudanum, and wn-u corpse on tho dnv fol lowing hcrreachltig Philadelphia. .Mr. Buchanan requested permission to attend the funeral os chief mourner, but was rudely refused. Being a man of ardent affections, and entirely devoted to bb betrothed, 31r. Buchanan's mind was nearly mi. hinged by the sudden calamity which had befallen him—so much ho Indeed that his friends became uneasy, and Judge Franklin persuaded him to re main In his family a few* days. While there, and wishing to wrllu the obituary notice himself, he requested Sir. Dickson to delay tho publication of the Intiltlyenar as longns tie could, which was done; but, os the mall was only posted once a week to certain jfolnts of tho county, we were compelled to close the paper that evening, and 1 was sent around to tho Judge's to see If the obit uary* was ready. I was informed that Mr. Buchan nil's mind wan so disturbed by grief that be was un able to write the notice, but the Judge suggested that 1 should go into the parlor, where Mr. B. was alone la his sorrow, and Inform him that wc must close the paper that evening, thinking it might spur him up to tho necessary exertion. I have witnessed many sad scenes in the • course of n somewhat lengthened life, but none that left so indelible an imprcialon on my mind as the grltif-slrfcken appearance of 3tr. Buchanan on that occasion. Tosco a man of almost perfect physical and mental structure lowed to tho earth by Irretrievable grief Is one of the most painful sights that n person of average feellngcati witness. Judge Franklin hud to write the obituary himself. I would here state that I have beard with pain blame attributed to Mb* Hublor (n tills connec tion of which she was wholly guiltless,—the anony mous note having been written by an envious lady who passed while 3tr. Buchanan end 3lb< Grace were convening together. Thu circumstances of the above are true In every respect, notwithstanding the accounts given In other papers, for they are remembered, by my grandmother, who Is now in her 85th year; and she says that, after Mbs Coleman .was dead, mid Indore the funeral, Mr. Buchan an requested of .Mr. Coleman the privilege of viewing tho body of Mbs Coleman, but he positively refused him to enter tho house. However, Mrs. Dean who was at that time engaged in laying out the dead, saw* Mr. Buchanan, and informed him that, if he would call at 12 o’clock midnight, she would let him in. He did so, ami, in viewing tho corpse, was quite overcome. Of the parties in the above sad affair, Miss Coleman Is now lying in St. James’ churchyard, and Mr. Buchanan rests at Woodward Hill Cem etery. Yours truly, John J. Hamuuiqut. A (irent Cnt. yew L/mtimx Ttlegram. Talk about cats—'Hone of them equal Cato, the recently deceased, the property, when alive, of Mrs. Stevens lingers. The animal lived twenty years, liking one month, and when lie deported was mourned for by a large circle of friends. Cato was a religiously inclined cat. Told, “ Cato, it’s time you went to bed," bis eatsbip walked solemnly to the chair or stand, and, placing his paws over his face, to shade his eyes from the glare and glitter of a sinful world, engaged, apparently, In earnest devo tions. Mrs. “Rogers Is an old lady, and rather feeble. Cato used to go to call fier up in the morning, would wait around until Bbo was ready to go down stairs, and then would mimic Ills mistress in ttic manner of her descent. Mrs. 11. was compelled to steady herself by leaning against the banister; the cat regularly went through the same exercise; but upon getting within three or four steps of tile landing he would spring clear down at a leap, and then look around in a way that said distinctly. “ Why don’t you come down In that shape I ” Mrs. Rogers at one time fainted, aud attention was called to the fact by Cato, who ran to the old lady’s daughter ami succeeded by pulling, and pushing, uml crying to cull her from another part or the house to the mother’s assistance, probably this being the means of saving the latter’s life. There used to be kept in ttie house a little box in which from time to time were deposited pennies for pro curing food fur Cato. Cuto understood the arrangement, and would watch over his pile carefully as could any little boy, manifesting anxiety whenever the supply of cosh run so low as to be suggestive of ehort’rutions. If the box of coopers gave out altogether, Cuto knew enough to go to the next pocket-book. Cato would allow* the canary to hop around upon his back, and would play at “catch-paw” with it upon the Jloor. when Capt. lingers died the cut manifested the utmost grief, and would sit and watch the portrait of his deceased master exactly as if he saw a resemblance between it and him. James, a son of Mrs. 11., came home, and one dayeoncluded he would have a smoke, lie pur chased a pipe and tobacco, and laid them on ttie table, ul once Interesting exceedingly Cato, who commenced culling “Papa, papa,” as lie used to do when Capt. Rogers was still alive. A comb was set apart for the vat’s use, us a mat ter of fun, and daily Cato came to have bis toil et made by some member of the family. When tinully he nos taken sick the neighbors of Mrs. R. used to come in to see him; and when nt the very last Cuto saw lie was going, he raised him self up in his bed, waved an adieu to Lis friends, and sank bock Into the sleep from which he never fairly awoke. A lUltroad War In Central New York. L'llca JlrntlJ. When the through train on Saturday from Norwich to Cortland arrived at Cuylcr Station, on the Auburn Brunch, thirty*. men, led by the Town Collector, rushed from concealment, boarded It, and took full possession. They un coupled tho only passenger-car and pushed' it 70 feet up a heavy grade, and then chained it to one of the side tracks ami blocked the wheels. Of liccrs of the Midland Railroad arrived on Sun day with a party of men, and a general melee between tho ruftrund and town authorities took place. Pistols, clubs, and lists were used until the coupling was again made and the cur drawn to l)e Ruyter. The trouble is not yet settled. The Company are taking up the switches and will cut out this station, stopping no trains here after. 0 FINANCIAL. Advances made on watches, jkweluv, diamond*, revolvers, opcn>-({la»»i**, book*, rum.
