The following passage is quoted from Doctor Draper’s “Human Physiology,” soon to be issu ed by a New York publishing house: In Europe the career of improvement is in the society; in Asia it is in the indvidual —the un known, illiterate, but strong-willed soldier of to-day, is the paslm, the emperor, the caliph to-morrow. The castes of India form but a trifling exception to the fact that, in the midst of a universal despotism, the primest democratic element is coucealed, for the career is open to talent. Through this, Asia has asserted her superiority again and again. Europe has never produced a great lawgiver. Asia has produced many. Generations of three hundred millions of men have followed the maxiniis of Confucius for more than two thousand years; three hun dred millions are the followers of Mohammed. The faiths which govern the daily life of two thirds of the human race may well be an awful spectacle to us—the more awful because we know that they are delusion. The only approach to these great results in the Western continent is in the supremacy of the Italian Church. But Rome owed the origin of her system to the Asia tic missionaries; nor was it the complete work of the band of oue man—it was the offspring of centuries, the joint issue of a long line of illus trious sacradotal kings. In military life the highest qualities shine forth. If the talent for command and the capacity of a statesman are to be measured by the grandeur of undertakings and their success, it still re mains for Europe to produce a soldier the equal of Jenghis Kahn, and a king like Tamerlane. These great captains held almost all Asia in their iron grasp. The opinions we commonly hold re specting these illustrious men have come to us through perverted channels. Such prodigious successes as theirs imply the highest intellectual powers. Their true character appears when we compare them with their European contempora ries. At the same time that Charles VII of France was mystifying his people with the imposture o! Jean of Arc, and Henry VI of England, was en gaged in the burning of necromancers who had attempted his life by melting an enchanted wax image before the lire, Ulug Beg, the grandson of Tamerlane, was determining with precision the latitude of Snmarcand, his capital, with a mural quadrant of 1#0 foot.radius, and making a cata logue of the stars from his own observations, which more than two hundred years subsequent ly, was printed at the'University of Oxford! If the European wishes to know' how much he owes to the Asiatic, he has only to cast a glance at an hour of his daily life. The clock which summons him from his bed in the morning was the invention of the East, as weroclopsydras and sun dials. The prayer for his daily bread, which he has said from his infancy, first rose from the side of a Syrian mountain. The.linens and cot tons with which he clothes himself, though they may lie tine, are inferior to those which have been made from time immemorial in the looms of India. The silk was stolen by some missiona ries for his benetit from China, lie could buy a better razor than that with which lie shaves him self in the old city of Damascus, where steel was first invented. The coffee he expects at break fast was first grown by the Arabians, and the natives of Upper India prepared the sugar with which he sweetens it. A school boy can tell the meaning of the Sanscrit words “sacclira oanda. If his tastes are light, and he prefers tea, the virtues of that excellent leal was first pointed out by-the industrious Chinese. They also taught him howto make and use the cup and saucer in which he serves it. His breakfast tray was lac quered in Japun. There is a tradition that leav ened bread was first made ot the waters ol the Ganges. The egg he is breaking was laid by the fowl whose ancestors were domesticated by the Malaccans, unless she may have been—though that will not alter the case- -a modern Shanghai. If there are preserves and fruit on his board, let him remember with thankfulness that Persia first gave him the cherry, the peach, the plum. If in any of these delicate preparations he detects the flavor of the alcohol, let it remind him that that substance was first distilled by the Arabians, who have set him the praiseworthy example, which it will be for his benefit to follow, of ab staining from its use. When In; talks about coffee and alcohol, be is using Arabic words. A thou sand years before it had occurred to him to en act laws of restriction on the use of intoxicating drinks, the Prophet of Mecca had accomplished the same object; and what is more to the purpose has compelled to this day, all Asia and Africa to obey it. We gratify our taste for personal ornament in the way the Orientals have taught ub, with pearls, rubies, sapphires, diamonds. Of public amusements it is the same; the most mag nificent fireworks are at this day to be seen in India and China. And as regards the pastimes of private life, Europe has produced no inven tion which can rival the game of chess. We have no hydraulic constructions as great as the Chi nese canal; no fortifications as extensive as the Chinese wall. We have no artesian wells that can at all approach in depth some of theirs; we have not yet resorted to the practice of obtain ing coal gas from the interior of the earth; they have borings for that purpose more than 3000 feet deep. Similar observations may be made if we exam ine the Asiatic contributions to science. While the learned of Europe were forbidding as a here sy, the doctrine of the globular figure of the earth, the Calyph A1 Maimon was measuring tin; length of a degree along the shore of the Red Sea. He and his successors repeatedly deter mined the obliquity of the ecliptic. A Saracen constructed the first table of signs, another ex plained the nature of twilight and showed the importance of allowing for atmospheric refrac tion in astronomical observations. Algebraitself was invented and wrought into Europe by the Mahoincdans, who gave it the name it bears. The same may be said of chemistry. It is needless to pursue these statements, for whoever will take the trouble to look into the history of any branch of science existing in the 17th century, will find how deep are its obligations to Asia. 1 shall therefore, add but one fact more, the invention of figures of arithmetic, which in reality gave birth to that science, and laid knowledge and commerce equally under obligations. For its simplicity, beauty and universality, this inven tion alone is enough to command the gratitude of the human race. The manner of using the ci pher, and placing the figures, is one of the hap piest suggestions of the genius of man. Smart Bor.—When Lieut. Gov. Patterson was Speaker of the Legislature of one of our States, some dozen boys presented themselves for the place of messenger, as is usual at the opening of the House. He inquired their names and into their condition, in order that he might make the proper selection, lie came, in the course of his examination, to a small boy, about ten years old, a bright looking lad. “Well. Sir,” said he, “what is your name?” “John Hancock, sir,” replied the boy. “What!” said the Speaker, “you are not the one that signed the Declaration of Independ ence. are you ?” “No Sir,” replied the lad, stretching himself to his utmost proportions, “but i would if I had been there.” “You can be one of the messengers,” said the Speaker. Smyt, Another Candidate.— Some of the po litical, theatrical and personal friends of Hugh F. McDermot, the uneaqualled tragedian, are advocating his pretentions to the United States Senate. He is to run for “the short term." ATLANTIC INTELLIGENCE. An- Ixtkrehtino Murder Cask. —Edward II. Ruloff', a German physician, was convicted at Oswego. N. Y., recently, of the murder of his child. The circumstances of the case are briefly as follows: Twelve years ago Ruloff', with his wife and child, settled at Lansing N. Y.,and the next year his wife and child were missing, al though she had previously announced that she was going on a visit. When a few months had passed, and she did not return, suspicion was aroused, aud Ruloff was arrested. A variety of circumstances tended to fasten the suspicion of murder upon him, but it could not be proved, and he was tried for the abduction of his wife, convicted aud sentenced to ten years in the State Prison. This term recently expired, and on his release Ruloff was re-arrested, charged with the murder of his child, and although there there is no positive proof that he killed his wife or child, he has been convicted of wilful mur der. The defeuse was conducted by Joshua A. Spencer, and the prosecution by Dauiel S. Dick inson. Sentence was postponed, in order that the case might be presented to the next General Term. Death from HrimoriiontA. —A young man named Henry Hrotzman, died recently at Le high Gap, Pa., from the shocking effects of hy drophobia. He w r as bitten about six weeks pre vious. by a dog, as were also several head of cattle, and a horse. Medical aid was summoned at the time, and a supposed cure effected. A few weeks later the horse died from hydropho bia, and the young man assisted in skinning him. Ity some means he inflicted a wound on one of his lingers during the operation, through which the virulent blood of the horse commin gled with his own and he was repoisoned, and the terrible symptoms soon after manifested themselves. Medical aid was again called in, but nothing could save the unfortunate young man. I)it. Kane. —Dr. Kane has been received with much favor in England. Mitchell's Maritime Register, published in London, concludes an ar ticle in relation to his services as follows : ‘•We quite agree in the justice and policy of conferring public honor on deeds of high enter prise. It is such men as Dr. Kane—modest, he roic, and skilful—whom a nation delights to glorify; and if not a citizen of this country, he might fairly be enrolled as such by having free dom of the City of London conferred upon him. No man better deserves such an honor. No man has more skilfully conducted hazardous undertakings to a successful issue, and few have of late years added more important discoveries to our geographical stores of knowledge. On the mni) of Arctic researches the name of Kane will ever stand prominent in connection with Franklin and Parry, Ross, Collinson, McClure, Inglefleld, and the other eminent explorers who have distinguished themselves in the lield of the Arctic discovery. And long may the two prin cipal maratime nations compete in such useful fields eif erterprise, until the lands and ocean channels of the globe shall be accurately defln ed, for the information of science aud the guid ance of Mariners.” SiNam.AU Death. —Dr. James N. Bogurdus, died in New York city, Nov. 23d, under very curious circumstances, lie had for two years been engaged to Miss Isabella Hamilton, and on two occasions their iiuptuals were postponed by the death of friends.

A Wedding Epidemic.—The New York Mirror remarks : “Matrimony, just now, seems to lie prevailing in this city to an alarming extent. The fash ionable quarters of the town, about the middle of the week (Wednesdays and Thursdays being marrying days,) arc blocked up with carriages; and bridal cards, cakes and bouquets are flying about as thick as snow flakes. The jewelry business, if one may. judge from the display of bridal presents, must be flourishing beyond pre cedent; and if matrimony opens the gate of Par adise, New York contains a good many happy couples about these times. One of the largest and most splendid of these nuptial festivals came off on Wednesday in Twenty-second street the bride being the only daughter of one of our wealthiest merchants; and the happy bridegroom a young and rising member of the Bar of this city. Ii is estimated that the doors of not less than one thousand carriages were opened and shut by Brown to let out and in the guests; and the jam of beauty and fashion can lie better im agined than described.” ClIAIlITY among the “Uppeu Tkn.”— We learn by the New York papers that some of the fash ionable ladies of that city, have prevailed upon Mrs. Win.

The Mirror says: “Heretofore lights have been displayed on vessels at sea to tell their whereabouts; but Capt. West, of the new steamer Adriatic, has re versed the old-fashioned method by the intro duction of a powerful Calcium light, which is to be placed iu the top of the forward wheel-house so that he can see in every direction at a dis tance of ten miles.

Thk Marriaok ok Senator Douglas.—We make the fallowing extracts from a gossiping letter by the Washington correspondent of the New Vork Evening Lost, concerning the mar riage of Senator Douglas to Miss Ada Cutts, a Washington belle : “The bride was accompanied to the altar by several bridesmaids; but the Senator being a widower, went alone. Only a few of his per sonal friends, including Gen. Shields and Sena tor Slidell, were present. The marriage cere mony was performed by Father Byrne of the Uomau Catholic Church, in the religion of which the bride was educated at the Georgetown nun nery. Senator Douglas himself is not known to have decided leanings towards any religious faith, though some of his friends draw a favor able inference, from bis recent land donation to a Baptist College in Chicago. Iu a matter of age and personal beauty there is a wide difference between the bridegroom and bride. Miss Cutts is tall, elegantly formed, with a sweet oval face, large brown eyes, small Gre cian forehead, around which are entwined the heavy braids of her glossy and abundant chest nut hair. On her clear, peachy complexion there is a perpetual war of roses—the red aud the white—each failing to maintain a sole su premacy. Altogether her tout ensemble, as the flunkeys say, fully vindicates the good taste of the “Little Giant.” Miss Cutts may be twenty-two years of age. ■She is a contemporary and a member of the cir cle of belles, all now married oft', including Ad elaide Smith, Florence Greenbow and others, who once formed a great attraction at the re ceptions and I tails of Washington. Her father, James Madison Cutis, an officer in one of the departments at Washington, is a nephew of Mrs President Madison, and enjoyed a considerable intimacy with his uncle, in whose family he re sided. He is a gentlemanly, quiet man, and much liked in Washington society. As for Mr. Douglas, everybody ought to lie familiar with his antecedents and appearance. In point of years he lias deeidedly the advan tage of his bride, being about twice as old. In person he is short and stocky, a sort of trunca ted giant, whence his well known designation, j He has a red, somewhat rowdyisli face, large features, the nose being rather retrousse unrefined with an expression indicating rather a rude,, nature, and an imperious energy, than any set tled meanness or malignity of disposition. In 1 truth I think him a very good nutured, pleasant man. individually. He is perfectly willing af ter abusing or being abused, in the most vio lent manner, to extend the right hand of fellow ship to his enemy, though his political hostility | is unrelenting. He is said to tie worth at least one hundred thousand dollars, the result of for- I lunate speculation in Chicago lots, aside from i the property, mostly in Louisiana plantations, left for his two little boys by his first wife.” Ei.orF.MKNT. —-The Jackson Sentinel says that a handsome young gentleman of that town set out to run off with a beautiful and highly ac complished young lady of Jackson.
