Their name it derived from Darazi or Darsi. who, aa early as 1019. came as a missionary to them from an *>ff-shoo? of the Moslem stock. Singularly enough, the Druse* disavow any belief in the Culiar doctrines of the man whose name they ir, and do not hesitate to call him a heretio, and to look upon the title of "Druse'- as a stigma. They, themselves, trace theft origin a* a religious sect to iiamsa. a wandering fanatic. who, in 1Q20, persuaded Hakein. a Caliph of Egypt, to declare himself a manifestation of God. Although the Caliph was aoon assassinated, tlamsa continued to propagate hi.* theory in Syria, and with one of his followers, Moktana Bohr-eddin, wrote a sacred book embodying his teachings. According to his intention, only the Druse priesthood was to see this volume, and no revelation was to be made until the second advent of Makem, who was to .ir r>?*r on 'he earth aeain with his master iiiTmso, iau Ming, prubtolj, an idea suggested by Christian dofnv This secreey about the ^ ??r?red writing." of Ilamsa was not, however, observed, and ropie* of the works are now in the great libraries at Paris. Vienna, the Vatican. Leyden, and the Bodician Library, at Oxford It has been translated into French, from which it appears that the characteristic dogmas of the sect is the unity of God a being. I ndeed, the Krmes call ihem<el ves Unitarians They maintain that God is incomprehensible, inexorable, pure, the essence of true life and can be known to his accepted children through human manifestations only. Ten times has the Deity thus appeared in Africa and Asia, the last manifestation having been that in the person of Hakem. of Egypt. Hakem left the care >f the faithful to five principal ministers, who are to direct them till hi.-* return. Chief of the?e minister* is llam.*a, who enjoys the high title of' Universal Intelligence " And here i- inserted in the Druso faith?to give it the popular name?a doctrine so much like that held by Christians thatjt can be no mere coin cidence, but rather pnwes the imitative powers of the founders of the Druse theology. They declare the first-born of the Deity was a spirit ?f intelligence, which was first incorporated in Hamsa. who is the same as the Christ of the Arian theory. To Hamsa was confined the creation of the world, and from him comes all wisdom and truth, while through him only does the Lord communicate with the human family. This is simply the corrupted version of the great Christian doctrines of incarnation and mediation. There is a complicated system of priesthood mentioned by the Druses, who, like the followers of Mohammed, embody in their religion many of the traditions and personages of the Old Testament. There i* a batan or Ismail, as he is called, who first introduced sin into the world. In regard to free will the Druse theology maintains that the length of every man's life is foreordained, but not bis individual acta. They believe in the transmigration of souls, and say that the soul of Ismail was once in John the Baptist, and still earlier in Elijah, while that of Htmsa once dwelt in the body of .Icsus Yet while acknowledging that Jesus once existed, they do not think that he was in any way divine, as the inlividual soul wLi h lived in him and in many others did not receive divine power till it reached the body of llam^a. The Druses do not extend their transmigration doctrines so far as to allow that human souls ever exist in the forms of animals. They think that the soals of men go on inhabiting different bodies?with the exception of a very few, whose excellence permit* theiu to exert a pare spirit?until the resurrection day when the faithful will be resolved for eternity into spiritual beings, but by far. the greater portion of mankind will be annihilated. If the Druses lived up to the seven commandments in which they express their moral law*, they would not be 90 dreaded and so cruel a people, for murde'r, theft, covetousness, and cruelty are prohibited as special crimes, and chastity, honesty, meekness, and mcrcy are regarded as high virtues?so high unfortunately that the present Druse gaierally cannot reach them. The men have nut one wife each, the form of government patriarchal, liferent tribes have a Sheik, and agriculture is carefully attended to. No marriages are contracted outside of the sect, and the Druses adhere tenaciously to their religious traditions All the mile population is trained from youth to serve in war, and the I)ruses have more than once revolted against the Turkish Government, which ho!ds nominal sway over them. Yet, of late years, they have been regarded as a peaceful and quiet people, and were disabusing their neighbors of the traditional opinions as to their ferocity and cruelty, until the great Christian massacre of this summer proves that their unenviable notoriety was not without a t just foundation. With so many features in their own approximating to the Christian religion, it appears somewhat strange that the Druses should inan" ifest such fiendish barbarity as they have recently done. But to them, strong monotheists as they are, the doctrines of polytheism are ? aannljiFA T n f k a a m /Art r, f > Uu WU-yUllNI IJ ICI/UISlfV. AU IUO VV1VU1WUIVC U1 IUC Greek sod Raman Churches they perceive what they think to be a worship of more than one God; they do not comprehend the relations of the three persons in the Trinity, and especially fail to understand the interpretation of the material symbol* held in such veneration in those Churches. The Protestants of Syria, whese religion does not present these features, would probably share better if the Druses understood more about them; but the ProtestanU, as well a* the Greeks and Catholics, all come under the general head of Christians, and as such fall beneath the indiscrimination fury of those fanatics. It doe* not appear, however, that the Druses arc the only trioM engaged in the maaaacres Arab Mussulmans are euually guilty. The a . # *L . > ? a principal cause 01 me present trouble moit probably arises from the old food* which for oentarie* have been w?go?i between tt>e Druses and the Maronites. The latter people are natire Christians followers of a monk called Ma run. who lived in the sixth century. In 1215 thej effected a union with the Church of Roue, from which thej hare never widely differed. though their spiritual head is called the Patriarch of Antioch. instead of Bishop. It is no new thing for the Druses to make war on the Maronites. and the attacks renewed upon these natire Christians were but the commencement of a general movement to extirpate all Christians in Syria. Already, others ' beside the Maronites hare been inrolved in the terrible effects of tfci.? fanaticism, and unlets it is soon stopped, the aim of the murderers will be achieved. The New York Tribone gives the following imaginative description of a vessel in the black-bird line," as it says, now Ijing in tliat port: Whoever wishes to see a vessel which has all the points of a frst-olass slaver shonld look at the bark Kate, now lying in the stream op> posite Castle Garden. A long, low, black thiag, with raking masU and heavv spars, capable of showing an immense spread of eanvas. she is the sort of veasel most sought after by the piratical tradesmen who mske merchandise of the bodies of man. Bnilt originally for the South American trade, she has been in her day a reputable vessel, bat, as is too often the case witn others of her sex whose vivaeity and good looks are their beat recommendation. the attracted the attention of men of the baser sort, and wss reduced to the shaaeloaa life she now follows. But she earrie* in h?r look* the evidence of her shame, for, though a* beautiful as over, her bearing is inaolent, and. when full dressed. there is an extravagance and latitude in her costume that kelongeth sot to a oaodeat female " k 117 Tbe following are places of aete la the <rf Hsnovrc.

The Lata Mtitacr* ef Christians There. The newa from Syria continues to be of the moat appalling character. The late advices report that from 7,000 to 8.000 Chriatiana hare been (lain, and 15 village* laid waate with fire and avrord. The mawaore at Damascus, where 500 Christian*, including the Dutch Consul, were massacred, and the American Consul wounded, gives renewed interest to the history of that ancient oity. The Philadelphia Bulletin supplies some particulars, whico we subjoin : Damascus was an important place at least as early as the time of Abraham, so that it is not less than four thousand years old. Etymolofists dispute about the meaning of the name. t was the ancient capital of Syria, and was thus the quintessence of the quick-witted race it repiesented. It is called by some the most ancient eity in the world. This is, no doubt, Eastern exaggeration, but the fact that every thing taid by the orientalists about this famoao eipiMi? vsaggcrMM, only ibowi bow strongly its real attractions had taken effect upon their vivid imagination. A celebrated epistle of an ancient writer calls it "the great and sacred city of Damascus, surpassing every city, both in the beauty of its temples and the magnitude of its xhrines, as well as the timeliness of its ieasons, the limpidness of its fountains, the volume of iu waters, and the richness of | its soil." Its people call it "a pearl surrounded by 'imeralas." Of all the cities of the East, it is perhaps the most oriental. The descriptions of Buckingham are not considered entirely reliable. But there has seldom anything been written with human pen more beautiful than his pioture of the plain of Damas:us. He compares it to an English seat in the country, surrounded by an immense park. The visitor inquires for the family, and find* that they have been for a year in Italy. Meanwhile the place has beet most delightfully unkept. Its rich cultivation is everywhere partially grown up; the trees untri rained and dipping their branches in the sparkling rivulets; the rose* grown almost into trees and covered with innumerable blossoms. Everywhere is seen rich verdure, luxuriant growth, with but such a touch of wildness as to five the finishing grace to the landscape Sucd, he says, is Damascus in the bloom of the year. Damascus was conquered by David, who made it tributary. After being held by Solomon, it revolted, and afterwards was at the head of thirty-and-two kings. It was subse quenuy i??en ny Assyria and rersia. After the battle of Issus, it fell into the hands of Alexander the Great, and Pompey, annexed it to the Roman Kmpire. After being celebrated for its wealth and splendor under the Qreek Emperors, it was conquered by the Saracens, and became for a time the capital of the Mohammedan world The scepter of Islam passed over to Bagdad but Damascus is still famous in the history of of Saladin. It was besieged by the Crusaders in the twelfth century, Vut they failed to take it. Later still, it was captured, with circumstances of great barbarity, by Tamerlane, and finally fell into the hands of the Turks under Selim I. It possesses, too. a high moral interest, for on that beautiful plain it was that St. Paul 44 became obedient to the heavenly vision." Among the points of interest oonnected with this famous city are tho Damascus blades, so malleable that they might be bent to a right angle without losing their elasticity ; so keen that they could Fever down or gauze floating in the air, or divide iron without destroying lhair edge Fur tba aoaret of th*ir manufacture wa.? unknown. General Anossoff. in the Ural mountains, however, suoceeded, in quite recent times, in making a sword which seemed to equal the best Damascus, 44 with a blade of reticnlated lines?such as always appeared on the finest Damascene blades?in broad stripes, and showing a bright gilded re flection. He cut through a gauze handkerchief in the air, and cleft bones and nails, fea which cannot be performed with the best English steel." Anderson, in his recent travels in Liberia, states, however, that the socret died with Anossoff, as these swords are not now made at Damascus. Another point of intere3t in tho famous Damask stuff. They are properly silk, though sometimes made of other fabrics. Large qunntities of silk are still manufactured, and the Damask roses have lost nothing of their immemorial beauty. There is at Damascus a considerable trade, both with India and Europe. From India are brought by the Persian (lulf, Bajnora, Bagdad, and Aleppo, spices, cotton good*, coarse and fine mwhns. and gold stuff* English goods come through Beyrout and Tripoli. The people are Mohammedans, Druses. Oriental Christains, Jews, Ac. The population is about one hundred thousand. The Fashions. Paris, July 13, I860.?The Emperor and Empress, after remaining in strict retirement at Fontainebleau, have just returned to St. a i 1. . .i * cioua. wnere, nowevor, owing to trie late melancholy erect, only intimate reunions take place. In these it has been observed that the strictness of the deuil de ringueurs has been so far modified as to admit the use of the lama laces. manufactured by Ferguson et Cie, 40 Rue dea Jeuneurs, both in the way of their rich pointea or half shawls, of which the patterns are this season peculiarly elegant, and also as garnitures de mantelets, to wnioh they are so well adapted. The unusually chilly temperature of June and the early part of this month has at last given way to somethitg like real summer weather which will enable our elegantea to display without danger the light materials and inventions, till now laid aside for warmer upper garments. At the late American fete, tnis year oonverted into a fete ehampetre, held in the Pare de Villers, oar own country-women had an opportunity, which was by no means negiectea, oi exniDiung aom? 01 me onarming but costly articles, known here under the name of confections, which are perhaps more fanciful and loaded with ornament* this season than at any former period. A mixture of lace and embroidery, with ruches or bouillones of tulle, forming something between a mantelet and a cape, from the tasteful hand of Madame Petit, 4 Place Vendome, was decidedly among one of the admired nouveautes of the day ; as were also her Corsages Zouaves of fine organdie, triiAned with bouillone of the same material, edged with rich Valenciennes lace,and through whioh a light-colored ribbon was run. The under body, equally of organdie, is made in fall plaits to the waist, and ornamented round the neck with a double row of lace; the sleeves are full to the wrist and trimmed to correspond with the upper part of the body. The favorite color for ribbons continues to be different shades of mauve and roee des Alpes Alnhonsine. 12 Rue du Helder, has just dow a very tasteful display of fanoy bonnet* suited to the Mason, chiefly in erin (white hair) and paille do rii mixed with tall* and blende. Many are now trimmed with fruits as well as flowers, either laid on the top. or falling at the aide auite over the bavolet, which is always of lignt material, edged to matched the bonnet. In frent, under the rim, bandeaux of crepe of the prevailing oolor, or what is most worn by young ladies, flowers corresponding with those placed outside, file up the pa see, which is much more raised than in the npring. Black lace is still used in a great variety of ways for trimming these light head-dreoaea. The favorite materials for promenade dreaaes are grenalinea and mousaelines de soie.
