Japr.n Is composed of four large Islands, with sevral small ones of but little Importance. The northern part is occupied by tribes very nnllke the Japanese, who have but little intercourse wth them.

The climate is exceedingly pleasant, the soil fertile, and the scenery unriva'led. A large number of volcanoes ex'sts in the country, as well as hot and sulphur springs The people are principally en Stged in agriculture, but no animals are ra sed at require land to support them, and cons* queut ly they have no meadows nor pasture. It oeing very mountainous in many sections, terraces are formed one above the other, like a series of gi gantic steps, upon which they live and till the land, and tne^e are so numerous that from one point the lecturer counted over three thousand The principal agricultural products are wheat. barley, buckwheat, rice, and millet, and the vrajjes of laborers and mechanic! It about 12 cents per day. The people do not lire in Tillages exclu sively like the Chinese, but are scattered all over the country like the people in tfce western coun Vies. In their manners they are extremely polite and obsequious, but they are characterized cs be ing proi.a. irascible, vindictive, and exceedingly lice .tlons Their iioyernment is not as demo cratic as that of China, but is a sort of Fedtral oligarchy Their government was founded about WOu Tears before the Christian era, aud has had since that time 126 monarchs. some of wLom were females. They fcave two Emperors, one of wV>in is supreme in rank, but the other exercises the power. There are quite a number of nobles and dignitaries who compose a sort of court i otuovFrninent is fdmlnisUred by acouncll of thWteen members, each of whom ia a spy upon tbe"ie?t. Whenever any enactment i? pissriri by the council, It ia referred to the Emperor, who generally acquiesces in it, and it at once becomes a law. 'But if he should be opposed to it, be refers It to three of bis relations, one of whom is general!* the heir apparent to th? throne If they sustain ihe Emperor in bii decision, the council are dejraded and commit suicide. If, on the contrary, the decision is against tbe Emperor and far the enactment, tee Emperor terminates his own existence or abdicates the throne This responsibility is an effectual che^k upon the Intro durtion of any radical reform, and will render it difficult to carry into operation many of the salu tary Influences of civilization at present. A com ftlete svstem of espionage Is maintained by every ndlvidual, and every town and bamlet is but a collection of treacherous and ever-watebful spies. Th*re are about sixty-six prince*, differing in rank and power, but who are comparatively weak undT tbls peculiar system, and who have been much reduced in the last few years This syrtem ha* been in operation about a century and a half, and pervades the whole machinery of their social and political organisations. The Governors i>f the various districts remain half the year at home and the other bal/ at Veddo, so that any plot which mUht be devised would soon be exposed. The society is divided into eight classes, three of whom wear swords?the remaining five sre ?-ompoa-d of mechanics, laborers, tradesmen, kc. Tbey are noted for what is termed by them Nibo, or "official lying." If anything can be gained by- misrepresentation, the officials will not hesitate to perpetrate the most outrage cus falsehoods ai.d deception, tireat respect is shown their officers; ?ud when two of eqnal rank or grade in society meet, they bow very low and precise, invariably t - . l ' mi., k ..? ? ?. i J - t>n: 4"'- *ur~ ' "'c kuvi ui tut u|iuti lueir uum within about two inches of euch other Polygamy tj legal, and practised to a considerable extent.

Tbe streets of their cities are 25 feet wide, with a sewer extending along' the middle qf each. Toey are paved in an excellent manner, and have nice granite sidewalks.

The unfortunate man had discharged a pistol at bts bead, causing instant death. He entered tbeservice In Ias a midshipman, and was commissioned as a commander In 1853. He stood as high In the service as anyother officer of biarank. His last cnilze was in command of the sloopof war Saratoga, on the Home squadron, from which be returned In April, 1857.

Floyd In connection with tbe Indian trust bonds,) aa a reason for not going to trial tbe day before 5**terd*y, that they expected to be able to show tbat the defendant had been examined touching the subject of tbe indictments before a certain committee of Congress In case tbe coun sel should b? able to patahllah thla fxrt th?r should pat In the plea of the statute, which declare*, in substance. that a man shall not be indicted on a charge about which he has been examined. They expected to prove this in one of two ways?either bv the testimony of a member of said committee of Congress, or by the record of the proceedings of said committee. It was under stood that the fraud committee declined to say or do aught touching this point until after tbey shall submit their report to the House of Representa tives. feeling a delicacy about exposing the pro ceedings, or any portion of tbem, informally. This morning the Criminal Court met fur the purpose of having final action upon' the above case. An attempt was made by the counsel on t-otb sides to come to an agreed statement of facts t inching the question above alluded to, but an agreement could not be made, and a messenger was s^nt 'o the Capitol for the Hon. Mr Morris, chairman of the fraud committee, who was ex pected. should he resoond tn th? rail of H.fenii. ant's counsel, to state ofllclaily what whs the sub ject upon which Russell was Interrogated before ihe committee. It is understood that if it come? out that Kussell teas examined in the committee concerning the subject for which he is Indicted, the fact will be a bar to the prosecution.
