THE CHINESE REBELS. Interview Brtwrrn a Missionary ami Chung Wan*, thf ?' Faithful ling." ?The Tae-Pinff-Wangs Believers in the Nev Testament. Missionaries Invited to China to Ex pound the Gospel, Ac., &c., 4?, Tlie following is a narrative by a l"rotc?taiit missionary, the Reverend .T. J. Roberts, of a long interview which ho had with Chung Wang, or the " Faithful King," as hn ia Styled by hi* followers. U bears date 800-mow, Sept. ;i9, 1WJ0. On Saturday, the 22d iost., the King's secretary, I-eu, sent for me, went with me and introduced rae to Chung Wang, the Kaithtul King, who is Coramander-ln Chief of I Tae-PUig-Wang's troops, which took Soo chow, ?la led by j the secretary to amount in all now to more than ono hundred thousand. They Baluted us wheu we arrived at the palace, and gongs somewhat, but no great parade was made, as It was a rainy day and the i^abbath also, which they observe, having got on the JewiBh Sabbath instead of the Christian; this will suit our seventh day brethren, I presume. When we went into the reception roun the King was waiting for us in state, with his crown and royal robes on; the tloor carpeted with sc;?rl"t, th'i table before him and the scat on which ho w is sitting deco rated. The secretary proceeded to the front of tlio table and kneeled down on the carpet; but 1 simply pulled off my hat and mado obeisance, its I woull have done to our President, excepting the shaking of hands, wl^h our Fresfctebt Jackson conferred upon me when I called on him, that was emitted. No one spoko until the secretary rose up, when 1 proceeded towards the table, and the King spoke; he asked me if I was I<o Sing-Sang, to which 1 replied in the afltrmative, and ho imme diately asked me to sit down. Lo is my surname in Chinese, and IlowChuen my mime. Sing-Sang is u respectful appellation equivalent to teacher. The secre tary aL-o Bat down at my right hand and acted as my interpreter. Tho King entered iuto a free conversation, iiid kept it up for at least two hours. The llrst part of it mus complimentary. He referred to my early connection with Hung Sow-Chuen, the present Emperor, now called Teen-Wang, his true and holy lord, as ho styled him, as his religious preceptor at Canton thirteen years ago; made au apology for not knowing that I was cuuii g, that be might liave received mo with the honors due to his Majesty's leather: spoke of the singular position of Io How-Chuen, that there was no man like liim as tho in structor of Teen-Wang. He most readily granted me leave to go to Nankin, and offered, of his own accord, to escort me thitlior; asked how lung I designed to stay, nnd when told permanently, he said, " That is llrst rate," and Boomed much pleased. Next, tho subject of his visit to Shanghae w is intro duced. He tut id tliat he whs invited to rihanghao. and bad no Idea of fright eniug tlie foreigners. I endeavored to explain that it was |?ii>bably a set of non-offlcinla tlioro that had invited him, and that the olllciabi fought lum, and that If 1 bad then b. on with hiin I would have kept blm out of that scrape He then referred to the iucon ntstoncy of Aghting tho loi|i*rwli>U st tbo I'elho and pro tecting them at I bad, witb some shauic facedncss, to confess that it was not only inconsistent, with which 1 had no fellowship, but also a violation of the laws of neutrality enjoined bjr their own government. He again referred to what la not uncommon among foreigners, that of charging on him and hm party the evil practices and wicked conduct of thicvea and robbers in tbe coun try , *bo have no connection with him and bin bravo re volutionary soldiers I had again with shame to acknow ledge that a portion of tbe foroign cotnmuuity did ho, tar nishing his good name, especially those who lean to tbo Imperialists eide; but that his frionds, I l>elieved, gene rally made tbe distinction, and I also believod thai tbe missionaries In China wero generally of that class. Again, of c-urtt*. be wanted to know what tho Knglish and French were going to do. This was a delicate and ?rttlcal subject, and on wh:ch I could give no dvtinite in formation. I could only say that I thought that they ought to u.-iutain strict neutrality, but Indicated that tlio matter was drawing u> a crUs; tint when the dlflicultles thall be settled at Pekln it was more thau I<ord Klgln would determine on their oase, whether ntutraltty shall be maintained as hitherto, only a little more strictlj , or the revolutionists attacked by be foreign forces. At this bo looked rather Sirioua, apoke of the imperialists being Idolaters, and his p^rty being of th? same religion as foreigners, and tbe iuoou Histenry of Christians ughtlng. usked If there were auy nieann by which ti ? emi t address the kiog-. concerned on the subject, uud plead tbe merits of his own case. 1 told lum there w.?s, though uot directly; yet if he would write a letter to tbo hngi.Bb Ambassador I would translate it for him, and not oniy publish it here *t Shiiugh.o-, where the plenipotentiaries of every country here would see it, but also send It lar and wide, throughout the l imed States, ft > land and France, through the newspaper hjatuuj, si' thiit uot only the gncen ot Kngl ind, th 'Km peror of France and tbo President of the l'uit -d Sutea would see it, but their people also, whose public opinion would very much rule the matter. This news paper plan was to him a new idea, at which he rejoicingly laughed heartily, and immediately agroed to follow the advice, and write the letter suggest ed, tbe trunsl.UOB of which will be lound below , which la hereby re? ^ectfully ctiuin. uded U? tbe Candid .it im partial oonslueratbm or tl.n several foreign amtMn-iadnrs and plenipotentiaries In Clilna, the Emperor of t rance, queen c>t 1' gian t and President of the United Status, together with nil others whom it may concern, as a w?dl written document, s|>?ikli g, 1 bolieve, tho true senti ments of the re rein lion taic:?

Because several of ray offionra having gone out throe or four miles and pitched their louts for a short time, waved a signal that Ka hing was in jeopardy, I was tliereloi e under the ueoeesity of hastily assembling my troops to march to tbe rescue. Tbexe are the facts in relation to iny former visit to Kbanghae Now an to tbe honorable countries, the several minis ters of which are at Shanghai, foh luring the establlsh ineut of factories for commun e, 1 beg to remark to th<m, that as commerce, for these several past year* in succession, baa been going on aa it should, why iiot pursue the same road us in former daytf 1,, am willing to treat wiib the several min ister, and, according to the ooustant regulations, govern all tbe law* of the custom houses in reUlioK to receiving duties, entirely acting upon the prepared rules, most certainly not increasing the duties. Because our heavenly dynasty, together witli these honorable coun tries, r evere tbe same heavenly system of worship, so that it may be said thai all of us under heavoo so doing appertain to one family. W hy shoul' not all the brethren of tne four sea** throughout (he world?East, West, North and South?pursue tbe practice of peace and good will to wards each other? Taking all together, I beseech your honorable oountrlts to exercise liberality of thought to ward* us. It bus now been ten years sinoe our true and hi ly lord?Hung-Sow-Chuoc? was elevated to im perial power. In tbe year 1861, when he received heaven's mandate to go around and carefully govern the beloved people, but to expel the injurious; to quiet ihe good, but to make it bis business to execute the evil, retain the upright an heads or ollicera, Booking truly to imitate ae I/>rd of the union the great Iu and Shun (two ancient famous Kmperors) Aud moreover, Christ's system or religion, wliicb has hitherto only been practised in western countries, now llourisbes in our middle country?China, which has had its commence ment from our true and holy I<ord. Kvery foroigu minister near us hi our country must he able fully to know these tilings, his own eyes seeing, aud his own cuts hearing them; benco I trust that he himself will early prepare a document and carry the report to tin own honorable country. Although upon rumination you should think tho capital distant, yet the sails and wind will watt you thither In a short time; do not, upon beholding tbe grout ocean, turn back. (In this clause be seems still to bo in tbe dark about our pestul arrangements.) Though I have this varnpoat edly uged a correspondence, yet I have uoi had the good fortune to receive a documental y reply by which my minu liigbt be delivered from perplexity aud suspense. 1 have recently received the command to subjugate the South, North, Kast and West, without reference to tlio place of location Although at the time of recoivingtho ho ly instructs lis 1 most devotedly designed iheir fullllmeut, in tuintULa', yet in embodying lbs way of carrying then out I did not ptirpcse greatly producing disorder aud de struction, bringing rhunie and remorse ou myself. At prebent the American missionary, l,o-How Ohuon Sit'g Sang, with whom our true and Holy Lord, liung BmvChucti. was formerly acquainted in Canton, not re gard tug ibe dlstanee of several thousand le. hits ar rived, with whom 1 have had an Interview. Availing myself of his full knowledge of the several countries tliat revere the heavenly system of religion; his abili ties to make known the' mysteries ol the Gospel in words to the near and In idoas to the distant, opening up their understandings, and, moreover, he has fully in formed me concerning the business of my former a|? proach to hanghac therefore?having come a distancn of seventy thousand lefioni his native country with the desire to publish the true doctrine in China?it is proper that ho should be unrestrained in doing so. Our heavenly dynasty , In th . ?. ? abllshment of such a work lor myriads ol years, will in promoting the rtlnrt to publish the Gospel?which mav be called doctrine indeed?there not being another system of religion of like origin. Kvcn should it not immediately produce harmony among neighbors aud polish them well, yet, with united effort of body and mind, ere long it? boh doctrines shall attain their div sired results. W here then can its compeer be found? Again, the New Testament, which your houorablo country so greatly prist*, is that which our heavenly dynasty has cut on blocks lor printing; and, though tbo languages are ditlereut, the meaning is hut one, and soon we shall obey it, regard il and thoroughly circulate it throughout China, llut 1 truly fear that the yeomanry and common people may orr with regard to the object of reverence about which our heavenly dynasty and tour honorable country are united; and having really erred, the deception may he handed down from generation to generation to unlimited exteut. I have prepared this letter for your honorable country, and earnestly beg that you will have the important Ideas therein contained on the various subjects roforrod to translated for the information or ttioss who do not under stand, so that they may know the fact that our true aud holy lord?Hung Sow t huen?has alroadv published the true doctrine, which has been extensively circulated in tbe middle country?Itilna. Heroalter tbouki we mutually act in conoert, and not lu opposition, the united effoit of our central aud foreign countries as one body will, in its luminous manifestations perfect tbe design tl giving our holy religion and the holy Scrlptum to my i mds of places, tlow ing dowu like a limpid stream in prcmulgaticu through the attentive and obedient, from generation to generation. From this con aguntiy?China?the Gospel will spread abroad so ?I W> distance will prevent it from bringing people un der submission to Christ; then all below heaven will he exceedingly blessed, aud all tbrf people will exceedingly re.ioico. 1.

FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. Sunday, Jan. 13, 1861. Tlie past week was one of considerable activity in the foreign trade of the port. Both the imports and export* of prodnoe and merchandise were considerably iu excess of thoic of the oor responding weeks of the two previous years. The high priccR which onr staples command in Europe insure a steady continua tion of the heavy exports which have caused the exchange* to rule in our favor for the past tw<? months; and, on the other hand, notwithstanding the troubles at the South, there is a pretty fair prospect that the West and the North generally will tuke a good many goods this spring, and then the Importations will not be so light as was at one lime expected. New York has two regions to feed with goods?the South and the West; when one fails the other often makes up the deficit. The commercial activity of this emporium is thus pro served. The following are the Custom House ta bles of tho trade of the port for tho week and since January 1:? ? Imp- .am. F<r the wtl. IH69. 1S60 1861.

The specie in the New York city banks must continue to increase. I.ast Monday the state ment showed a specie average of $21,839,475?aa increase of $1/>64,417 from the weok provious. At the corresponding date year tho bankn held only $17,863,734. During the week about ;800,000 in gold arrived from Kurope and Havana; last evening $1,446,21 D came in from California; wo have advices of $1,600,0Q0 more on the way from F.urope. Since last Monday, however, large pay ments have been made to the Sub-Treasury, on account of the recent award of Treasury notes, and heavy shipments of specie continue to go South, mostly to New Orleans whero the ex change is still against the North. The "Rub-Trea enry gained money last week, but the transfers to points South were 80 heavy that the balauoo stocd last evening at $2,584,403, against $3,645,43T at the close of Inst week, and $7,714,162 at the cor responding date last year. The South is not accu mulating spwcie, notwithstanding the largo ship ments from the North. Since the suspension of the Southern banks, Southern buyers of produce in tho West arc obliged to pay for it in gold, and our remittances of specie are thus finding their way np the Mississippi about as fast as they travel South. This movement, coupled with the im provement in State stocks, must tend bofore long to equalize the exchanges between the West and (Lis city, and thus to restore business relation.) ia that section to a natural footing. The last bank statement showed a loans average equal to $129, 623,463?a decrease of $1,6H0,8W from the week pre viot'. The tendoney of tho money market is aa sitting the banks in the curtailment which the ap proach of the 1st of February readers necessary. The demand upon them for aid is not as pressing aa it was. Th ' money market eased up considerably last week. At the close of the week some names oa short paper were current at seven per cent. The proper quotation, however, for first class paper is 9 a 10; and for 4 a 6 mouths good business paper, 12 a 13. The range of negotiable names is widen' ng, and this will afford more relief than a deoUne n rates. Unless civil war should break oat, the chances are that we have se?n the most of the stringency in the discount market, though houses in the Southern trade will of course be re garded with suspicion for some time to coma* Collections In the cotton States are extremely difll cult, not to aay Impossible, to maka. On d<. m*wi? money is abundant at 6 a 7 per cent. Some heavy purchases of stocks by speculators during the past week have rather tended to quicken the inquiry for money on call, bet the amount of means seek* ing employment is still in excess of the probabta wants of the street. Foreign exchange closed yesterday firmly at about 106% for sterling and 5.35 for francs?for bankers' bills in both cases. Mercantile billot which sre scarce, sell at 103% a 104%; the snpplp from New Orleans is fair, though less than woold be necessary to keep prices down. The recfiit ad vance in cotton and brendstnffii Is likely to stimu late exportattoos tq Increase the supply ?<
