(From Brittsli Columbia Examiner,
'yy^
New York, April 2ftb.r-The Tribune's special despatch says, the Department of State
has received by mail lengthy dispatches from
the United States ministers to France and
England, which show conclusively that a general European war is scarcely to be avoided.
Napoleon for a month has been making extensive military preparations." The war feeling among the French is almost beyond Napoleon's  control.   Malakolf writes , to  the
Times under date of Paris, April 12th, " The
people are excited to such a point that all
serious business.transactions.have been ar-
.rested, no houses sold or let on long leases,
.. no .large orde rs give a for manufac tees.   The
exasperation extends further back titan the
Luxembourg   question, and was caused by
the anti-French spirit prevailing in Germany.
This was-understood by the; French previous
'to the-iate^var.���They dre^nrage4.4iit>the^iiU
cure of tbe governusent.tp take, timely, action.
The opposition members of the French Chambers are humiliated at the .position of France,
-and while willing to tight their way out, and,
vat the same time ��� organizing for revolution}
they' think the republic could:fight Europe
-combined." r   '
London, April/21st.���Spain promises indemnity to. England for-the seizure of Victor ia, Ky al i n e and To rn ado.
Paris, April 22nd.���It is reported on good
���iiuthority that Napoleon is pushing.his preparations for war, and is endeavoring to purchase improved arms iu - the United States.
It is said the neutral great powers have prepared a'-co wpromise,bufc Prussia'disapproves it*

.minister has sent a note to the English gov-
. .**rn me ri t te / the. effect th tit- tlie:. rig h t o f nations

The London Globe' 6ays that this means
���Spain has refused English demands and Eog-
. lish satisfaction,
��� Washington. April 17th.���:A correspondent
' of the Boston Post is authoritatively informed
that negotiations have been pending since the
accession  of the Derby  administration, between the State Department and the Foreign
Secretary, for the purchase of a largo portion
���of British America.   Seward's design.was to
acquire all the territory west of the Mississippi ; one prominent difficulty was  the transfer
-of Vancouver  Island;  En gland desired to
.retain that as a naval station.   Recently, the
proposition to  purchase.has been renewed.
Seward put forth the Alabama claims as a
rpartial -oifset. the whole price to be determined  hereafter*   The strictest secrecy, has

and adjourned wi thou t filling all vacancies.;

^espondehce of April; 17th, says the elections
under the new confederation will not occur

are arriving. /.
Leavenworth/ April. 20thV���General Han-
���cock's-expeditiou is at ;Fqrt Laramie, and is
unable-to. move, owing/to; tho exhaustion of
t orage. Eleven -thousand' warriors are en-
>caraped on Tongue Ei ver, between Forte
Phil. Kearney and C..F. Smith, waiting for
grass, before commencing hostilities.
Chicago, April 22nd.��� There is great suffering among the homestead settlers in north-western Iowa, from the .Iong continiied and
severe winter. Numbers of cattle, hogs and
sheep have perished in northern Iowa and
southern Minnesota, from a scarcity of food.
The weather is intensely cold, and tho snow
is kr some places fifteen pv twenty feet deep.
The Tribune's special says the government
*ims replied to the last communication from
England on the question of the Alabama
'claims. Adams was instructed1 to respectfully
;decline the acceptance of the pmposiision..
This leaves the,matter where it stooel. There
is no proposition .pending on either side.
The same katlioWty denies the report that
negotiations nave been started for the pur-
���chase of the British possessions on the Famine, and this may be considered in connection with the Alabama claims.
Chicago, April 25th.:���The Missouri river is
two feet higher than ever known before. vAt
Omaha the damage from, the overflow is lm-'
mense. Houses, barns, stock and hunran
beings are carried.down stream. The Union

. CHINESE GAMBLERS. /
The Chinese are passionately addicted to
gambling, and the endless variety of games
of chance in,common use among them does
credit to their ingenuity and invention, for it
is not likely that they have learned anything
from their neighbors. The respectable merchant, who devotes tho. hours of daylight assiduously to his business, sparing no labor .in
adjusting the most trifling items of" account^
will win or lose thousands of dollars overnight,* with imperturbable complacency.
E very., grade pf society-���; is:,.- ital��ued-.withi^tfe
passion. ���
I have amused myself watching.' the coolies
in the streets of Tientsin, gambling for their
dinner. The itinerant cooks carry with them,
a3 part of the wonderful epitome of a culinary
establishment with which they perambulate
the streets, a cylinder of bamboo, containing
a number of sticks on whiclt are inscribed'
certain characters. These mystic symbols
are jjhnken up in the tube, the candidate for
hot dumpling draws one. and according to
the writing found on it, so does he pay for
his repast. So attractive is gambling in any
form to the Chinese, that a Tientsin coolie
wilt generally prefer to risk paying double
for the remote change of getting a meal for
nothing.
On one occasion (says an English gentleman) I volunteered to act as proxy for a
hungry coolie who was about to try his luck.
Tho offer was accepted with eagerness, and I
was.fortunate enough to draw my constituent
,aVdinner for nothing. I was at; once put
down as: a professor Of the b lack /art,; and 1 i-
terally besieged by;; a crowd of o thers, all
tagging me to do tbem,a siraiiar favor, ,whicli
of course*! prudent!y.deolined.; Had I indeed
b eeiv su ccessful ..-a; se con d. .time,; th e clisp e nser
o f the'tern p titig niorse Is w 6 ii id cer tain i y have
pro tested against my , i nterfere nee as, an invasion of his prerogative, which-*is to win, and
not to lose.
The Chinese gamblers are, of course^/frequently ruined by the practice. They become
desperate after a run of ill luck ; every consideration of duty aud interest is siink and
they play for stakes which ralgnt have
startled even Russian nobles^ who used to
gamble for serfs. In the iast crisis of all, a
dose of opium settles M accounts pertaiuing
to this world.
In games 0f skill the Chinese are no less
accompliified. Dominoes, dranghts, -chess,
and %ith tike, are to be seen in-full swing at
<iycry tea-house, where the people repair to
gossip and whiie away the evening. The
little groups one sees in these places exhibit
i n tens e i n te rest- ih thei r o ccup atib n : th e v ic-
tocy ���is-ce'ieb'r'ated by the childlike exultation
of the winner, and any pair of Chinese
dVahghtrplayers may have sat for WilkieJs celebrated picture, y
A Tankkk proposes to build an establishment which he may drive a'sheep into at one
end, and havo it cprao out at the other as

The rock is crushed dry, on an inclined surface sloping outward, hy a peculiar motion, out of which, in  addition to the crushing force of the wheel, a  large amount ef trituration is produced by the j  "slip"--the wheeri)eing;caiisedto continually roll up kill and slide down.  From-the mill the sand, which can be reduced to a very great degree of fineness,- is  made to pass into an inclined flue, with a furnace at the bottom, by the heat of which the  sand, is' calcined'and the snip hurets: parti a-ljy  or entirely desulphurized, according to  the degree of heat maintained, aad the  length of the.flue."       ..."../ .;" /..  From the.furnace it is deli-vered^hotinto.an  amalgamator, where it comes in sudden contract with water.   The amalgamator operates  upon the principle of /rubbing/ by which all  the sand is rubbed, for a long distance, over  wood placed endways aud thoroughly charged with Quicksilver.   The advantageous effect  of such.action is familiar to rniost miners.   ; A  From tlie amalgamator, the pulp passe.? into a "separator,if tho body of which is .constructed very mvu,h  alter the manner of. the  Hungerford & Prator.   It consists of a pan  with a central discharge; but resting on rollers made in the form of small cog-wheels. The  pan is caused to make about thirty re vein-,  tions a minute, as it thus rests -independently  upon those.wheels or rollers.   As will readily  be perceived, the result is an exceedingly  rapid jarring or vibrating motion, given to  the pan by the teeth of the cog-wheels. These!  percussions are very rapid, and may be not  inaptly compared to the action given to tbe  bod}r of a wagon resting directly upon the  axles, without the intervention of springs, and  driven rapidly over very fine cobbles. Tudeed  it was from this very thing that tbe idea was  taken���������the first experiments being made by  feeding sand into a couple of wasn tubs, half  filled with water and placed in the bottom of  a quartz wagon and-driven along the street.  The separation of the  sulphnrets from the  light sand was complete.    The theory was  thenappliedio.an amalgamator in the form  now exhibited in model by Mr.. Cone, and was  found to  Preas.  greater scale than formerly.7  accorin ts from tbe neigh b6rh ood o f Bris'bane,  the Logan-River, and different localities of  East Moreton, and the growth of the hew  staple also appears to engage mneh attention  a mong the -p e o p I o o f Wide-t) ay. The q.u an ti ty  of cotton that we have mentioned as having  been shipped" last year, is certainly not very  great in itself, but is remarkably so consider*  . ing - how. la tely ��������� the- cu Its rati p n -of -this v alu ab 1 o.  product wasihtrodiiced into Queensland.

The Islander says ;that  the past ten years have been years of extra-  ordinary prosperity, but it, thinks, that last-  year the shipbuilding business was overdone,  and that this has resulted in heavy imports,  whioh left more goods on hand than there is  any necessity for.
