Instead r adopting such a oonrse.hs suggests the reintroduotion r municipal authorities for the suppression of the usily, the laws to that effsothavlDg long fallen Into dlsre. The Kmperor is vary wroth at tha conduct of hit Boers, and has given severe ordere to dismiss svery os who, under the plea of sickness, or for nay other I use, absents himself from the soene of aotion en the ontlers of Sse-ebuen. If the soldiers of this provlnoe isembie those who terved In the war against the Kngsh, they are certainly the best of the Chinese army; lit the enemy they have to meet is greatly superior to tem In physloal strength and determination. The ?ran tribes have never yet been anbdued. and secure i their mountain fastnesses, may safely laugh at the Tort* of the largest army. 6MIQQLINO Or OINSBNO.

The lan who was caught with the smuggled drug on him, rid he bought it for hie mother, who was siok. This lay probably be received as an excuse, though the malty of infringing upon this monopoly is very seer e. the court. The Emperor sacrificed at the graves of his aneesare by deputy. What prevented him from performing i person the so long contemplated oeremony, is not tated. - Extensive preparations for tfie journey had sen made, and all waa,in readiness, when the monaroh referred remaining at home. i,lam as. A oonstant stream of indigent Llamas proceeds from 'hassa to China under various pretences, some as enoys, others as tribute-bearers, and not a few as splrilal guides. They are exposed to a great many hardlipe in their journey through Kokonor, where not only le rigorous climate and high mountains render traslling very difficult, hat the natives, though devout llowers of tae Llamas, provs very dangerous, by waylylng these travellers and plundering them of avery ling. Many attempts have been made to effeot the pprehension of theee marauders, yet all to no parme, for the mountaineers laugh at empty threats, o secure a safe passage for these holy men, the Kmnor has been requested to permit them to traverse ts-ohuen instead of tha dangerous route through okonor. This permission was not accorded with a >od graoe, for notwithstanding the homage to Shaanism en the part of the ruling dynasty, the governent is disgusted with the arrogant eooduot of the -iests, and endeavors as muoh as possible to keep i?m from the oountry. If the access is mads easisr, itre will be thousands instead of hundreds, and the nd will be entirely inundated by them. imperial kamily. The statutes about the imperial olan are underling great alterations. Sinoe the aooession of the sntchoo family to the throne, the various impsrlni - inches have very rapidly increased Their numbers ake the keeping ot genealogical tables a-matter of eat difficulty. The prinoesses are married to various ongnl and Mancoboo chiefs, but many remain aidens without n suitor. Only a few princes receive vil and military appointments, the remainder pass an le ilte, some of comfort, others of great misery, either t Teking or in Leaon-tung.

RRVENIX. The wants of Ho-nan are now relieved, but the trade f the province hae not recovered from the pauio, and be duties are very short, so that the State must disease with them this year. There remained in the ust< m house of Hensboo. not far fro n S-o-ohoo. 200,00 taels. As various dykes are to be raised in Keaugoo province, the (lovernor has applied for part of this urn to t arry on these works. He sent in a list of parlotio contributors, who haTe all reoeived rewards, nd several of them obtained the much coveted poaock's feather. YT'N-NAN. Lin-tsish-seu reports a revolt that took place within lis jurisdiction at Chaou cb^o and Nle-too. It arose o suddenly, that the authorities were quite unprepard; but by adopting the most vigorous measures, they n a very short time succeeded in restoring tranquiiliy. Yet much blood was shed, and the regiments sent o quell the disturbances show no meroy. Patrioiio lontributions have bten offered to defray the expenses if this internal warfare, and the donors have their tames written down for promotion. TURKESTAN.

The ruler of Kokan (t'srghana? be fatherland of Sultan Baber.) has sent an envoy to tasbgar, offlolally to declare that his master took no jart in the last insurrection The son of Jehangir, luring the war in 1820 and 1827. after losing all, took -tfuge In Kokan, where a generous chief directed the iffairs. From thence he has never ceased to molest he Chinese frontiers; and it is not improbable that hey were his adherents who laid siege last year to <a*bgar. The Mantohoos, to revenge themselves upon ;bese unruly neighbors, stopped the trade; and as tea a a neceeeaty of lire to the Turks and Usbecks, this neaaure caused them much trouble. Stnee the em>aesy from Kokan, however, the restriction is taken off, irade Is >ert?ed, no duties are to be paid, and the enroy received a present of six hundred taels.

The negro pens in this city, from one I which the banner ot freedom ftiats on fadependnce Day, are extremely offensive to everybody ut those who traffic in bones, flesh, sinews, ana lood; and if a vote were taken at the polls toiorrow,-they would be banished from our mtdst y an overwhelming majority. Like squtbblea etween man and wife, we need no impertinent iterfertnce to settle our difficulties A sub-committee ot the Committee for the Dialct of Columbia have been assigned the duty of uming a bill having in view the abolition ot the ave trade ia this District. It is not probable, Dwcver, that it will pass during this session. A Dr. Williams, ot Nortii Carolina, is giving eribitiona at the Odd Fellows' Hall, in which he ills electio-psychology a species of mesmerism.1 e has imparted a knowledge of hts art to several inistrrs of the gos|>el, foreign ministers, and embers ol Congress. Lastnignt a lad Was told to >en hta mouth ; he did so, and coiud not close it itil the operator gave him permission. It may be ut General Houston, who is an adept in the tence, will make use of it hereafter, in the Seite chamber. It an opponent should arise, to eak a good word tor General Taylor's ad niuisttion, all that would be necessary to silence hint ould be lor the General to make die "pars" or is the power thus restricted: the " subject" n be made to speak what the operator may attest And he can be fixed in any attitude, or bo ade to dance or sing, according to the ruling pis uu : v? iiuvui any aigumcui irum nirf II Will tidily be perceived that this science is to be of eat importance in the future legislation of Coness. As to ministers ol the gojpel, some of em, by their dry sermons and dull manner of livery, put their congregations into ihe "sluin?r;" but soon they will all have the ability to keep leireyes open and prevent them from enjoying easuut dreams during preaching time. Corcoran, the banker, has lately given splendid inners to members of Congress, and for this the jliticnl naturalists say that lie is in the chrysalis ate, and will after the fourth of March, emerge into te spring atmosphere a bright and beautiful Tay>r butterfly.

At a temoerance meeting, this evening, the Hon. lorace Greeley, among others, addressed the citiens of Washington upon the evils of intoxicating rink. The hon. gentleman was much more suoessful in his warfare against intemperance than e has been in his contest with the mileage of nembers of Congress, a fact which we sincerely ejoice at. One of the speakers, in the course of 11s remarks, alluded to General Taylor as a man aually temperate in hia habits as in his opinloas. [ue mention of the General's name brought down bunders of applause from all parts of tne ho ise. f course. Now that the election has decided be matter, Cass men have become remarkably carce in these diggms. This is a fixed fact.

The House passed some eighty-seven private : 11- j.. 11id iwun; . The Senate were engaged on two or three, one f which was equivalent in the sum of money avolved to the whole expenditures of the Indian lepartment, being a bill for the relief of Dunson, H.hott & Co , who built and equipped a navy for he republic of Texas, for payment of which her ariff revenues were pledged; but these revenue, laving been absorbed by the federal government n the act of annexation, the claimants call upon Congress for their money. Ifence the bill; but an t bioaches the question of the assumption of Stata lebts, although a case standing entirely on another lasu than tne debts of the other States, tt is loubtlul whether the bill will pass, and probable hat it will be rejected. Mr. Iiadger has introduced a resolution instructng the appropriate committee to inquire into the xpediency of repealing the existing contract with lie Jnl'lhgtncer and Union, for the publication ?t be reports of the Senate. Senatora were not leased; and the fact is, it is impossible to please lem, whether vou report at all times exactly what icy aay, or attempt to mend it. But, on the other and, it doe a look ridiculous to see a whole broadde of two papers, at $7 f>0 per col imn each, takes p in a debate on a private bill tuvolviag, perhaps, pension of $96 a year. Hut the papers adhere to Iflr coinjiftci ; wiu tiirjr mc ii<iii iu in* mo mm iuch ot it as possible Indeed, as the contract ands, they are bound to re|>ort all that ia said ia. rbate, though it may be a dead waste of time, aper, and money.
