Our Philadelphia correspondent, (who ia "well known to the readers of the Bulletin as the " K. L. M. C." of letters from Europe,) thus writes from Philadelphia, on 30th September, to a friend in this city : I notice your remarks about and against " universal suffrage," and I am compelled to some extent to agree with you. I say " com pelled," because we all have a species of prejudice against any law or form copied, however dimly, from European systems of government, and especi ally from their system of rating. Still, it cannot be denied our system of allowing every ragamuffin to vote has produced a class of politicians as dis solute as they are active and reckless in their call ing, and as ungodly as they are dangerous to the public good. Indeed, the most part of them who Mil our offices (and there is scarcely an office that is not filled by a politician) are men of the lowest educational acquirements, and of the most debased morals men who have no religion, country or God, except an office. In fact, they are enough to en gulf any government any people; enough to pro duce anarchy, civil war and universal chaos. Still, the question of universal suffrage remains a diffi cult problem to solve. We see and acknowledge its errors and tendencies, yet we cannot see how we are to make any radical change. Certain it is, it never can be done through the ballot-box. And as this is the arbiter of our destinies, and as this is controlled by the majority, and as a large portion of the majority are the very ones we wish to ex clude from the privilege of voting of course, this majority would go against any such limitation of their citizen prerogatives. The questions suggested by a change in our po litical system, in regard to voting, are so complex, and involve such vast perils and interests that we do not care to push them to an issue. What shall be the voter's qualification ? So much education ? Hardly a possible requisite. So much morality ? Simply a premium for hypocrisy. So much prop erty ? A doubtful certificate for good citizenship, as the elections in England fully show. Men of education, reputed morality, and property are often quite as corrupt, and always thirst as much for of fice as the ignorant, immoral, poor man. But shall a drunken loafer, without a sou in his pocket, or a care for or interest in the government, have the same political power and right at the source of all our power (the ballot-box) as the truly respectable and wealthy citizen, who has his all staked in the government? No a thousand times No! And yet, how alter the system ? By a revolution ? with an even chance of rushing into dangers more faal to our well being than those we now suffer under? In my opinion humble though it be the grand error in our Constitution is the electing of a Presi dent for four years, and the clothing of him with more than Imperial powers. I believe he should be elected by the Senate and House of Represen tatives, for one year only, and simply as an execu tive officer, shorn of all power of appointing any officers under the government, save his own Cabi net. And he should be ineligible to a second term. This would strike a fatal blow to the corruptions, not to say dangers, growing out of our Presiden tial elections. Nothing would remain of it, but its honors, und these would be enough to fight over. This is nearly the system adopted by the Swiss Confederation. The Senate should be the only appointing power, and no man should be appointed to office until his abilities and fitness for the office he solicits had been thoroughly established ; and when once in office, he should be retained there for a long period, or during good behavior. No man belonging to one State should be appointed lo an office in that State. A constant interchange of men from one State to another would serve to make us better acquainted and, consequently, more united and more patriotic. But I need not speculate or suggest what 1 think ought to be. One thin?, however, is certain. All governments are mutable, and like the race from which they spring, must sooner or later die. It matters little how pure, or good, or exalted, or pow erful a nation may be, it must die. And on its grave another nation or nations will rise, and these, in turn, must go out, and give place to still other nations and people and so on forever. The law of change of life and death is as unbending to States and nations, as to individuals neither can escape its decrees. This Almighty law pervades our globe and the universe. The most enchanting and remotest star, bosomed in the remotest realm of space, is no more secure from its power than is that " Wandering mas. of shapeless flame, A pathless comet acd a curse. The menace of the universe." It is a poor consolation still it m a consolation to feel and know that our national dangers, evils and sins have been borne by other nations, though, perhaps, not in the same forms, and that our de struction would be but following in the path of other great nations which have gone before us nations which have sunk into oblivion so complete that only their names have come down to us.

The evidence of the antiquity of man afforded by the Somne valley in the subject of an original article by Mr. John Lubbock, P. R. S., in the new number of the Natural History Review. Our read ers may recollect that, in 1846, M. Boucher da Perthes astonished the scientific world by stating that he had found human implements in beds un mistakably belonging to the age of the drift, of which he published illustrations in 1847. He was then regarded as a mere enthusiast. Since then, however, year by year, thje nioft skeptical have come round to bis opinion, including some of the most eminent geologists of the day, such as Sir C. Lyell and Mr. Prestwich. Mr. Lubbock, in long memoir, gives an historical sketch of the progress of belief in these ancient flint implements, and proposes, as questions to be solved 1. Are the so called Sint implements of human workmanship, or the result of physical agencies? 2. Are the flint implements of the same age as the bones of the extinct animals with which they occur? 3. Are we entitled to impute a high antiquity to the beds in which these remains occur? And 4. What are the conditions under which they were deposited ? Three of these questions are answered in the affirm ative by those geologists who have given much at tention to the subject. But Mr. Lubbock, by col lecting and classifying a large quantity of evidence in a somewhat legal manner, has conferred a great benefit on those who desire to obtain a summary view of the present state of the controversy. A section of the strata in which these implements are found, and a colored engraving of one of them, form illustrations of the paper. Mr. Lubbock says, with regard to the men supposed to have been contemporary with the implements found in the valley of the Sotnne : " No geologist can re turn from visiting it without an overpowering sense of the change that has taken place, and the enor mous time which must have elapsed, since the firs I appearance of man in Western Europe." By the arrival of the clipper ship Lotus, Leckie, en route for Hongkong, and the bark Young Hector, Paty, both from San Francisco, we are in receipt of Eastern Atlantic dates to Nov. 21 (telegraphic) and European dates to Nov. 9. Regarding the war In Americ t, we make the fol lowing extracts from the Alia California and Bulletin : New York, November 6. Horatio Seymour is un doubtedly elected Governor of New York State by 10, tnsjoritv. 1 he Democratic otate ticket ts also elected. The Democrats have elected 13 out of 81 Congressmen. The Assembly is still in doubt. The probabilities are that the Democrats have a small m.ijonty. New York, November 8th. The steamer Scotia, from Liverpool the 26th, has arrived. Lord Lyons is a passenger. The Gladiator, from Bermuda, has brought sundry reports as to the hostile intentions of Admiral Wilkes, commanding the United States squadron at that port some going so far as to say that he had block aded the ports and refused to withdraw his ships on the request of the Governor. He sent a boat to the Gladiator to order Capt, Fool on board his vessel, but the Captain refused, being at the time under the pro tection of a British man-of-war, which ran out her guns ready for action. The matter attracts much at tention in England, and it is stated that orders have been issued for the immediate reinforcement of the West India squadron. The Arm and Aart Gazette says Lord Lyons re turns to Washington without any instructions for a change in policy, except such as may be rendered necessary by contingencies. Salem. Ya., November 8th. The order relieving Gen. McCIellan was received at headquarters at 11 o'clock last night, and was entirely unexpected. The command was immediately turned over to Gen. Burn- side. Gen. McCIellan and staif leave to-morrow for Trenton, N. J., where he is ordered to report. His last otacial act was the issuing of an address to his soldiers, informing them in a few words of the change. The army is still in motion. Washixgtox, November 9. Gen. Burnside is ap pointed in place of McCIellan. Gen. Hooker takes Burnside's position. McClellan's removal caused great excitement here last night. Fitzjohn Porter has been ordered to Washington, to answer charges preferred by Pope. Philadelphia, November 9. McClellan's removal has caused gre.it excitement. Among the rumors as to the cause ia one that some instructions of the Gen eral-in-Chief (Halleck) were not followed, and Lee escaped in consequence. Forney's Press says that it (the removal of McCIellan) was purely a military act, and the result of military consultation and discus sion. Although recommended by the President and approved by him some time sgo, it was only finally resolved upon after the change became inevitable. The steam frigate Vanderbilt goes to sea to-night in search of the pirate Alabama. The list just published shows that six ships, six barks, six schooners and one brig have been captured and destroyed by the Alabama. New York. November 10th. The report of the Harper's Ferry Military Commission is published. Concerning McCIellan, the evidence adduced t:i the report, and the opinion expressed by the Commission, are most direct and damaging. The General-in-Chief testifies that McCIellan, after receiving orders to drive the enemy from Maryland, marched on an average six miles per day in pursuit, and that in his opinion he both could and should have relieved and protected Harper s i erry. in this opinion the Com mission fully concur. WASHrsoTojt, November 10. There is nothing in the latest foreign intelligence to lead to apprehension of trouble between the United States and the foreign powers in connection with army affairs, unless it be from the persistent course of English merchants and speculators fitting out privateers. The reports in circulation alleging dissatisfaction in the array, in consequence of the change in the com mand of the Army of the Potomac, are pronounced. by those who have the best means of knowing, to be without foundation. A letter has just been published, written by Gen. Halleck the 28th of October, to the Secretary of War, from which the following is an extract : On the 1st of October, finding that Gen. McCIellan purposed operating from Harper's Ferry, I urged him Lo cross the river at once and give the enemy battle, pointing out to him the disadvantages of delaying until the autumn rains had swollen the Potomac and impaired the roads. On the 6th of October he was perempto rily ordered to cross the Potora.c and give battle to the enemy or drive him South. It will be observed three weeus elapsed since that order was given. In my opinion there his been no such want of supplies in the army under McCIellan as to prevent his com pliance with my orders to advance upon the enemy. Had be removed his army to the south side of the Potomac he could have received supplies almost as immediately as by remaining on the north side." Chicago, November 10.
