HOLLIOK'H New System of Practice is attracting universal attention. Medical men, and the medical journals, are everywhere discussing the reason of its estraordiuarv success. The most rvmarknblc feature in this new system is, that neither ilruKs, nor .my other of the oriliunry agents are scarcrly nseil stall, and vet every requisite effect is produced. The chief scent employed is tlut mysterious and all iwrvading power, the sole cause or life and motion, generally called electricity, galvanism, or magnetism, and which is uow Itnowu to be the principle life itself. With proper apparatus, directed by a competent knowledite of physioloicv and electro dynamics, this is undoubtedly the best means we possess for mitigating human suffering. In all Chronic and Nervous cases, and in Female Diseases, nothing dm can approach it.

Somr Remarks upon the Isthmus of Tthuonteptc and a Railroad from the f.owrr Mississippi to San Ditto, in California Bv an Officer of the U. S. Naif. ISo. I. The advantages of a ennui aero** the isthmus, if practicable. ha supposed. would be tbe much greater quantity of cargo, ami a continuous voyage, it haft been stated that ships uf tlm capacity of a thirty-two gun frigate (l.'iii) tons) e?uld pass through it. It would nlao be somewhat, but not materially, shorter tbau the route from the Lower Mississippi Kit bar of these would diminish the distance to the Kast India* by from ulna to sixteen thousand miles; while tbe passage would combine two other recommendation*?more safety and more comfort. If there can be a canal across the isthmus, of the depth and size stated, this would be preferable to any other route; tint if a railroad ehould be found the only altornat've, its necessary distance I* short?bat about thirty-six miles. This last is unquestionably a practicable scheme. It would not, however, be attended with great advantages beyond those of a railroad from the Lower Mississippi to .San Diego, If we consider the great number of auxiliary railroad* in MuxicO, which would result from tbe construction of the main one across the continent Several of these would ran to 'he great rivers of the West, and several make a direct junction with the main railroad. The whole oouu iry ukuiu ny inii uii-ann. near lis iriuuinry prozuce aou manufactures, an far an necessary. to the main railroad, to (In,) a market In Asia, anil to receive In return the rich and peculiar product* of that, the moit populous, region of the earth. The wealth of the world paused into u new route and Into new hands, by the voyage of Vasco de (Jama The Venetians had become, from ; cor islanders, fugitives, with such effects as tho tr eat multitude could carry with them, the greatest maritime power of the globe for ages, by the riches of tho eastern trade, through Alexandria The ocean route discloeed by (Jama.caused the extinction ol' the Alexandrian commerce in a short ttiue.'und with it Venice gradually loaf, tier comparative superiority. The impulse, however which it bad given, rendered her still powerful, for two centuries longer Much is the efl'eot of a long continued enriching commerce Portugal derived from the eastern sountries a comparative superiority, which spread her language and colonisation to a greater extent over the globe, than that of uny other modern people whose territorial area Is so Inferior to the large sized States. It gave her the power that enabled her to seize and hold a rich country?nearly oue-third of Mouth America? as well us to throw off the yoke which treason had fastened upon her naclc, by the expulsion of the imperious and powerful Spaniard*, so greatly her numerical superiors. So lucrative was this eastern commerce, that on account of it tins Moors, as we have already stated, intrigued for the destruction of (Jama, oven while he had not yet completed his voyage, and continued their efforts after he had arrived in India. The Sultau of Kgypt, then a powerful tnahomedan prince, viewed the new coiner* with the most hostile feelings, and sought their ruin by open war, within a short time after their first voyage Thu wars of the Sultan of Kgypt upon the Portugue-u. on account of it, form a proof of equal magnitude. A histo riun of the events thus describes the cause and result of these hostilities. " Knraged witli the interruption hi* I trade had already received, the Sultau resolved to pre; vent its utter ruin He threatened the extirpation of all j the < hristians in his dominions, if the court of HornI would not order the king of Portugal to withdraw his I lieets for ever from the eastern seas. One Maurus. a I monk, was his ambassador to Home and Lisbon, but. In il plane of promises of compliance, he returned witii the severer threats of Kmunuul. War was now determined iiy the .Sultan, and a most formidable fleet, sixty vessels of which were larger tbau the I'ortuguesu, manned with Turks experienced in war. were seut to the assistance of ' tho Zamorim. Hut by the superior nuval skill and romantic bravery of Almryda and bis sou Lorenzo, the mighty armament was defeated." Nut by any deficiency in the resouroes of this trade, but by the tyranny and tolly of tho late viceroy* of India, whom they sent out, did the Portuguese gradually lose it. ho far as Kurope is concerned, it lie* alter a series of contests and revolutions, passed into the hands principally of the Knglish. who have the capital to carry It on, and who would, under the proposed change of the routes, still come in for an enriching share ol it. ua America would claim no other benefit than that which might arise trom tliu right of way and her owe. proportion of capital employed in its coustruutlon. 1 refer of oourse. to the capital of her citizens, bhe woulu desire no other control with respect to the Isthmus of 'lVhuautepec in this matter. than one of a negative character, to prevent imposition on the commerce of her citizens, and to givu security to that commerce She would treat it r.s i great work of philanthropy tor the common west of mankind, a* well as for her own profit. In the route ?r ini the Lower Mississippi, she would, while ktepmg in view philanthropic considerations, claim privileges more exclusive, iuav much as the whole railway would be upon her own soil No II. I The length of a railway, or wnicli r-an Diego would ha the outlet, may be variously eetim.-tcd. If nailing a navigable point ot auy intervening river a | uition of the distance, it might, probably be diminished two or throe hundred milea.

Hughes, published in the Union, of May 14th. The introduction of the editor commends it to general atteution. In perusing it. we recognise the pertinency of the remark that, nitliough this letter has reference to a different route, yet. " its account of the productions of that region makes it of value to any route." There ran be no reasonable doubt whatever that there are considerable and probably large tractsou oilier portions of the proposed railway equally as productive 'I bis valley abounds in the richest Kuropean and Asiatic luxuriance and varleity Mr. Hughes epeiiks feelingly Ot those elegant ' clusters of dried grapes, preserved,'' far superior to the beat raisIds that are imported into the United mates; pears, peaches, apples, quinces, aud figs, are produced it tin richest profusion.
