Amputates His Leg With an Axe.— A few days since a case unparalleled in the * history of surgical operations upon one's self took place in Memphis, Ten-; nessee. A man named Patrick Dugan_, who for some time had been under medical treatment at the city hospital, left that institution and went to a neighboring house, where he procured an axe.— Dugan returned to the hospital after getting the axe,and went to the rear of the building, where, placing his leg upon a stump, with a stoical insensibility of real or pretended indifferance to pain* he actually hacked the member off near the " ankle. When discovered a ¦ short time afterwards, he was still standing by the stump, steadying himself by one hand, and swinging the injured leg, the foot being still attached by a portion of _\he skin, as gaily as though he was the most delightful posturer known.

Interestig Facts ; Some interesting facts about the City of London have been recently; published. The present British metropolis equal to three Londons of 1800. It increases at the rate of about 1,000 a week,, half by births (their excess.over deaths) and half:by immigration (their excess over emigration.) In. the same way * New York, during the- past ten years, has increased at the .rate of about 730 per week. The present American metropolis; however, is equal tofifteenNew-Yorks of 1800.— It is remarkable that, in London, one5 in six of those who leave the world,- dies in one of the public institutions—a workhouse, hospital, ' asylutn; or prison '.— Nearly one in eleven of the deaths is in a work-house1 . ' The proportion of deaths under sucB _citourastarices in New York is _*ery small—not at all to'be compared with the deaths in-London.

All this, let it be remembered, for people, of simple habits, and who knew nothing of otir American extravagances. She stat ed that the beds of the Japanese were costly beyond estimate, and that they were curtained around with the richest and most expensive, laces. These apartments were all newly furnished, and pro1 - bably the Lelands have included the original cost of those ariticles in their bills. They not only Charge fot entertaining the Japanese, but for magniri ciently furnishing the rooms they occupied! A bill of particulars will settle this qu ' estiou.

MoflALs in _Hayti.— An official Haytiep document, giving the number of births, deaths, marriages, and divorces, in various villages in different parts of the empire, daring three months, _shoW that the whole number of _children born in these months were 1,900, of _wpom 1,740 were born out of wedlock. In Port au Prince, the capital, out of 420 children born only 30 were legitimate. If any other country oc the face of -the earth—where the marriage institution is recognized—can exhiWt snch a monstrous disproportion between the legitimate and illegitimate births, we know not where it is to be found. Freedom in the Hayti islands is rather the unbridled license of the wild animal than the rational liberty of a man. _, .
