A few days ago the Evening Reporter, of Burlington, N.

For a moment ho was speechless, and then being assisted to rieu he gasped out that lus sou had that morning been declared head of the list, and was goino- to be sent up as one of the first three students to Pokin, there to receive mandarin's button and a high officia appointment. The poor father was s overwhelmed with the honor which hi son had thus gained that it was with difficulty he could be calmed, and indeed, he continued in this state o semi-frenzy all through that day. The honor, indeed, was iv great one, but i was one to which any Chinese lad, no matter of what degree—except he belonged, as I have said, to the playino- or convicted classes-might aspire, and to this fact I attribute tho very general education which prevails all over Chi na.
