orrcspondcncc ot the Philadelphia 1'rcsi.
SAN FKANCisco , September 5. To
kivbw the Chinese olio should coino to
Snu Francisco. Their mnnbora , llioir
peculiarities , tlioir strength grow rap
idly upon the Bojournor. At first ho
1ms only nn occasional gliinpso of a
"Scrubber's" cue at the "I'alaco. "
Then Wing Hi or Kan Leo comes for
his clothes , catrios them away in two
blue bags swung over his shoulders ,
sprinkles thorn w ith water squirted from
his mouth in spray , and brings back
the ladies' ties as white as the driven
snow , but so still' that to bow to
friends across the dining room is an
impossibility. Then Ohoo-Loo ap
pears , who comes on regular mornings
to the ladies' rooms with his attractive
wares , and beguiles them into unlim
ited purchases ot fans , cupa and trays ,
fust because they can bo bought of
lint so much cheaper than nt the reg
ular shops. Then comes a visit to
China Town one of the "regulation"
things for all California tourists.
China Town consists of a rectangu
lar block , seven squares in lcn th by
two in breadth , near the business cen
tre of the city and only a few blocks
away from the palaces of its railway
kings. The blocks are cut up in sec
tions by narrow alloysand { the houses
are nearly all tall , decayed buildings ,
swarming with tenants , filled with
underground dens , and attics with
overhanging dormers , which shut out
the sunlight and all but a patch of blue
sky , which is nature's perpetual gitt
to this city. The streets are lined
with the stores of the Chinese mer
chants. Those stories contain many
choice things in tortoise ahull , carved
ivory , and enpesj but HUlo effort is
made in display goods in their limited
quarters , and the investigating turn of
mind and the "push" which are qual
ities of the average Eastern traveler
are serviceable. One alloy is devoted
to the opium "joints , " another is given
up to the market men , others are
monopolized by the most dissolute
classes. There are six restaurants and
two theatres in the quarter. Tlioir
plays are historical , frequently run
from noon of one day until noon of
the next , and a series runs through
two months. No reliance is
placed upon the setting , there being
no scenery and almost no stage furni
ture , and the slain man rises and
cooley walks oil' the stage while the
audience looks calmly on. One biiof
visit suflices the average white theatre
goer , and ho is glad to escape from
the close air of the theatre , heavy and
foul with opium smoke. If ho chooses ,
the doleful music of the stage still
ringing in his ears ho can adjourn tea
a restaurant in the vicinity and eat
cake , sweet-meats , and preserved
watermelon , and drink genuine Chi
nese tea served in Celestial stylo.
Did over a drive equal the one o
teok one sunny morning through
"Golden Gate Park , " over "Nob
Hill , " past the "Plaza" to China
Town ? And is it to bo wondered at
that after a dreamy morning at the
fascinating Cliff house we rubbed our
eyes to see if wo were really awake ?
Ev erything about us had an Orien
tal aspect. The shops had Chinese
signs. Chinese ware hung in the windows
dews or were shown on the sidewalks.
Chinese placards were on the walls.
The Chinese themselves were every
Wo were accompanied by a police
man , and our bewilderment was in
creased by seeing him suddenly dis
appear like a jack-in-the-box. Di
rectly his head and a beckoning hand
appeared , and , pinning our faith to
our guide , wo proparecl to descend ,
wo know not whither. Our faith was
rewarded by finding a flight of steps
leading to a dark passage opening
upon a covered court , surrounded by
galleries from which opened innum
erable auartmcnts. In one of
these wo found a woman "at
homo. " She was dressing hoi-
hair , which was glossy and most
profusely gummed. Here , thought
we , is found among this ancient people
ple the germ of bandoline. The wom
an showed us the little wooden pillow
upon which she slept , in shape very
like a dumbbell , anl when informed
that those who used thorn wore only
obliged to dress the hair once a week
their utility was apparent.
The court was evidently used as a
common kitchen. The stoves in use
were simply little sheet-iron boxes ,
containing a few coals and wit !
an arrangement for a skillet over the
fire. This is the only means many of
these poor creatures have of cookinf ,
their meals. To bo sure it Bimplificf
very much the process of getting dinner
nor , for the steve can bo put on a ta
bio or on the floor , or "laid on the
shelf , " as is most convenient , and one
cooking utensil serves for the rice ant
the numerous stows which they niakp
The Chineseaio very economical in
their food , as in everything else , usinj
parts of animals which pro discardet
in the markets and making , it is said
very palatable stows from thorn. But
after Boeing the process and the coob
wo had no desire to taste the dishes
Our repugnance was strengthened bi
a visit to ono of their market houses
whore everything , from chickens
wings to the thinnest fish,8coined , to be
"cut and dried" very much like the
customs and habits of the peopl
Our policeman next led us to an
"opium joint. " Wo shuddered awe
wo looked into the dark damp under
ground don , at the end of which w
could sco only the faintest glirnmo
of light. Uy the aid of a candle w
mudo our way across the place and t
the side of a man stretched upoi
matting and already half stupefied by
the opium ho was smoking
His wild bright eyes , an
his thin , haggard face told c
the terrible power of this vice , II
was , indeed , a frightful object , an
when the oflicor took his pipe for
moment , to show us its structure , h
followed it with his glaring eyes , as
his existence wore bound up in it. W
were glad to hasten away from thi
ad place , which at night would belied
lied with men , smoking ft way their
ves ; and , as wo drew loin ? brcathi of
! io pure , swcot nir outside , wo rcllcot.
d upon the responsibility of the Eng-
ih government that foiced thoopiiim
rado upon China.
Another underground room remain-
il to bo visited which , wo were told
y our escort , was sixty-seven foot
eng and nine feet wide. Into this
on this olllcor ono night chased a
lief , and , after arresting him , wont
ack and counted ninety-two sleeping
icn. There was not n window and
ut a single door to the apartment ,
nd the berths were ono above the
thor like the boxes of a poalofllco.
lo made a hasty computation which
lowed the number of cubic inches of
5r for each person very small.
Wo next looked into nn old decayed
uilding where , wo wore assured , four-
eon hundred Cinnamon lodged. Wo
xplored ono or two dark passages ,
rom ono of which n barking cur
usheel out , and wo begged to bo ox-
used from going further , assuring
ur guide that wo ntid faith enough to
ccept all his statements. NVo could
eve the Chinaman but not his dot , ' ,
Our next objective point was a bar
er shop whore a man's oars were
oing shavod. Our escort asked for
lie instrument , which was refused ,
'lion what a 13abel ensued. The
ther occupants of the shop all talked
t once , evidently to explain the po-
cuuaii's position. The result was
hat the instrument quickly found its
ay into his hands , illustrating
lie wholesome respect for law on-
ertained by this people. It proved to
o bo a little .sharp-pointed knife , which
s inserted for an almost incredible
iatanco in the ear. They have also
little knife somewhat similar for
leaning their tongues. It seemed
ery strange that this peculiar people ,
o filthy as most of them aie in
Eieir homos , should be so
astidious in those respects.
Vuly they "pay tithes of mint and
ummin and neglect the weightier
latters , " Wo were obliged to leave
lie man in the barber's chair to the
under mercies of the operator , al-
liough feeling some anxiety as to the
esult. The shades of nicht wore
ailing , and so , leaving the Joss-
ouso for a separate visit wo turn-
d our steps homeward , with hearts
addened and filled with pity for a
eoplo leading their own _ separate
lolatrous existence in the midst of a
Christian people. And wo wondered
' the true solution of the "Chinese
roblcm"wcro not the civilization and
'hristianization of those already
mong us , with the hope that the lit-
le leaven may leaven the whole lump.

Mutton nnd Wool.
The following remarks are takoi
from the London Field of recent date
and will bo of interest to Amonciu
sheop-breedora and wool-groworH a
indicating the tendency of EniliHl {
llockmastors to depend more largely
upon the meat qualities of their sheep
and less upon the product of wool
profit in the latter being much loss o :
recent years , on account of the lurgi
receipts and excellent quality of foreign
oign fleeces. Noticing an importanl
sale of llanipsliiru-down sheep oy Mr ,
Morrison , of Fonthill House , Fisbury
\ViHa , the Field , after quoting sovera
high-priced individual sales , says :
Now that Iontr wool , oven when i
is of a lustrous character , is worth IK
more or less than 1 shilling pe :
pound , and dark-faced mutton keep S
at a high pricp , Lincolnnhiro and
Midland counties flockmastors are
turning their attention to the cultivation i.
vation ot u bettor clamjijf mutton than
it is known whito.fatdQ and long ;
wooled sheep produce , The demand
for Hants-down ram lambs haa there
fore increased during the last few
years. Thousand * have been sold annually -
nually for and in LincolnshireNorth
amptonshire , lluntingdonshiio and
Yorkshire. The numbers this year
will bo incieased , of which the above
prices are an indicatiiin , A point
about the Hampshire sheep is excep
tional. They are so largo and vigor
ous that ram Iambi are preferred for
use to yt'arling or older sheep. In
fact , unless in the case of an excep
tionally good ram , which proves him
self capable of leaving a strong stamp
of his own good qualities on his issue ,
a yearling or two-shear sheep is never
used oven by the flockmostors of Hants
and Wilts. Those ram lambs are now
in great demand , on account of the
great proportion of loan to fat they
produce. This is why they are so
suitable for crossing purposes with the
large Lincoln ewes , which possess a
largo portion of fat to loan , lly
the way , too , brown , black , or mottled -
tlod legs are thus produced ; butch
ers can leave a bit of skin on the legs
and shanks uf their sheep in the car
cass , and thus charge the
price of the best cross-breeds or
downs. Whether or nut there will be
a turn in the English wool trade , wo
have at present no moans of judging.
I3ut the increase in the produce of
the foreign wool-j/rowing countries
has been so great within a few years
that it seems to bo a better nrospcct
for England flockmastors to improve
the quality and price of mutton , rath
er than to look forward to an in-
increased profit by the growth of
wool This will be sulllciotitly evi
dent if the fact be recalled that the
wool importad from Australia , Now
Zealand , South America , and some
minor foreign countries amountodlast
year to the sum of upwards of twon-
ty-live million pounds sterling.

Many of our readers have boon long
interested in the observatory to bo
built upon Mount Hamilton. They
have watched with eagerness the work
as it has progressed for many months
past. The progioss of the un
dertaking has been marked. Cap
tain Fraser has nut spent an idle mo
ment , but has been continually push
ing the work on to completion. The
visit to the site of the observatory by
a ft iend reveals to us the following
facts : The center of attraction is the
largo pier which is to hold the great
tolescopo. The work upon it is just
now about completed. The pier is
constructed of hard-burnt brick and
has a diameter of thirteen feet five
inches at the bottom , and tapering un
til it is eight feet acioss at the top.
Its foundation is solid , being laid in a
bed of solid rock four and ono
half feet below the surface of
the ground. It is held in its
cement. In building the tower or pier
more than fifty barrels of cement and
S0,000 brick were used. The sur
rounding walls for the dome are laid
and the masons arc at woilc on the
foundation for the transit house.
Captain Fraser is pushing the work on
quite rapidly , with the idea of com
pleting the buildings in October. The
pier and surrounding work now begin
to look indeed like the site of the
largest telescope on the continent ,
and it is expected by the 1st of Octo
ber the main structures will all bo up.
The blasting has been a long and
tcdiouH job , but now the summit of
the mount is as level as can bo made.
