I-' IT I I priation to some benevolent object, the Chinese may be specially inter* VP**. The ratifications of the treaty with Japan, concluded at Yeddo on the 2iith of July, 18."8 were exchanged at Washington, on the *2'id of May last, and th" treaty itself was proclaim ed in the succeeding day. There is good rea son to expect that under its protection and influence our trade and intercourse with that distant and interesting people, will rapidly in crease. The ratifications of the treaty were exchanged with u i usual solemnity. For this purpose the Tycoon had nccrelited three ofhis most distinguished Ministers Plenipo tentiary, who were received nnd treated wtth markrd distinction and kindness, both by the Government and people of the U. S. There is every reason t# believe that they have return ed their native land, entirely satisfied with commit their outrages upon American citizens ith absolute impuniiy. Thus wrote our Min- isterin )8oH, and expressed the opinion that nothing but a manifestation of the powers of the Government and of its purpose to punish these wrongs would avail. Afterwards, in 1857, came in the adoption of a newconft.tu tion for Mexico, the union of a President and a Congress under its provisions, and auguralionof a President within one short month, llawever the Presidet I was expelled from the capital by a rebellion in the army, and the supreme power of the Republic was assigned to Gen. Zuloaga. This usurper was in his turn ieon compelled to retire from the i place by Gefteral Mirnmon. Under the Con-j *tituLion which had thu«been adopted, Gen. Juaret, as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court became the lawful President of the Republic, and it was for the maintenance of the Con«ti- i tion, and his authority derive I from it, that the civil war commenced and still continues to be prosecuted. Throughout the j-ear lHoSthe Constitutional party grew stronger and stron-| per. In the previous history of Mexico a sue xessful military revolution at the capital had I most universally been the signal forsubmis eion throughout the Republic. Not so on the present a majority of the citizens peisiatent'y rustained the constitu tional government. When this was recom mended in April, IM9. by the government of the United States, its authority extended over alargemajonty of the Mexican States and To cap the climax, after the battle of lacu- baye,Pin April, 18G9, Gen. ordere^Ij three citizens ot the United States two of them physicians, to be seized in the hospital i at that place, and shot without trial.

Not so with fact the operation of this system has already driven from the pursuits of honorable com merce many of that class of regular and con scientious merchants whose character through out the world is the pride of our country. The remedy for these evils is to be found in specific duties, so far as this may be practica ble. They dispense with any inquiry at the custom hou?e into the actual cost or value of the article, and it pays the precise amount of duty previously fixed by lair. They present no temptations to the appraisers of foreign goods, who receive bnt small salaries, and might, by undervaluation in a few cases, ren der themselves independent. Besides, specific duties bett eevform to tfce reqnisition in the Constitution that "no pre ference shall be given by any regulation of commerce or revenue to the ports of one State over those otanoiher." Under our mittalorem system such prefcreaces are to same extent inevitable, and complain s have often bee* made that the spirit of this provision has beep violated by a lower appraisement of the aatM articles at one port than at another. An impression strangely enough prevails some extent that specific duties are neceasari* ly protective duties. Nothing can be more fallacious. Great Britain glories in free trade and yet her whele revenue from imports is at the present moment collected under a system of specific duties Itisa striking fact in this because a much larger amount of revenue would be collected by merely converting the ad valorem duties of a tariff into equivalent specific duties. To this extent the revenue would be increased, and in the same propor tion the specific duty might be diminished. Specific duties would secure to the Ameri can manufacturer the incidental protection to which he is fairly entitled, under a revenue tariff, nnd to this surely no one would object. The framers of the existing tariff have gone further, nnd, in a liberal spirit, have discrim- of duty upon the importation of similar arti cles from abroad, but what is the same in ef fect, by admitting articles free of duty, which *c. operates against him.

Als a bill f»r JAMES BUCHANAN. WASIIISOTOK CITT, 3d December, NKW GMAIN EI.KVATOBS 1860. [From the Chicago Tribune.] —Chicago, already the largest grain mnrkct in the world, is steadily adding to its facilities for carrying on this trade. We notice with pleasure that Munger & Armour, and Smith and Sturges, who are among our most experienced and enterprising houses in this line, are each building a new Elevator on the South Branch. Thesj are to be of the larget class, built in thc most substantia! manner, and furnish ed with lli-j best and most approved machin ery, and are to be completed early in the spring. Some idea of the immense amount of grain which may be handled in them, may be gathered from the fact that they an to be furnished with near thirty of Fair banks' 400 bushel and 500 bushel Hopper Scales, which are by universal consent the best in use, and that each of these scales, so perfect will be the machinery, can be loided to its full capacity, and the grain discharged again from the IIop{er, in lass than ten min utes. In view of the immense and fertile country lyin^ back of us traversed in all di rections by numerous railroads, having their centre here, and of our present nnd increas ing facilities for receiving and shipping grain, and the experience anil enterprise of our business men, it is reasonable to expect Chicago will be in future, now, the great grain market of the world.
