A. D. 315: it was introduced to the peonle of

our tea':'itt-aerved preserves in its name the;
evidence of its Chinese ofigin.'°"Chlnawate"
cameoriginally from China; and the name
of ”poreelain,l' • given to it by the early
.' may be taken- as
proof that nothing. of the. ,kind was at
that time manufactured in:Europe. •They

Roger Bacon was atemainted with.its com- •
poidtipn in A.. D.. 1270; but he speaks of it
as already known The eu rren t opin-
ion refers it to the Arabs,;but there is reason
to believe that they were not autheis of - the
invention, but merely the channel through
which It-was transmitted — in a word, that it
found its way from the remote East along
with the stream of Oriental commeree.
The heaviest herein the bill of our indebt
ednesii to.the Chinese Is for the discovery of
America. On the. alleged voyage of a party
of Buddhist priests to the. shorett of Mexicci •
we lay no stress; but It, is not difficult to
show that the discovery Pf the New World
by Christopher COIIIIIIIIUS was directly due
to the influenee of China. Chinasupplied,at
„once the motive for his voyage and the' in.
'ointment by which it Was effected. It was

attracted kiln to the Westward • and it was

bas unlocked to us.the treasures of the ocean, and proved:ltself the eye of commerce, its
origin is not due to the Neapolitan
Flavlo Gioja , who is reputed to have invent

"and the Syrians all possessed it befote that
hate; anti there is unquestionable • evidence
that the Chinese had then been • acquainted
with It. for more than , two thousand four

Medieval travelers'shooldhave returned from
China aerate the' desertit of Central 'Aida
- Withoitt Providing themselves with such an
unerring guide. - •
Paper-makieg andpfinting; two arts more
characteristic of our mode& civilization than
even steam and electricity, there are strong
.seasons for ascribing to Chinese origin. The
former they invented in the first century,
and the latter atieleit eight hundred years•
before the time of Gutenberg and fault. -
Inoculation, which; prior to the greatAls , -.
eovery of Jenner, was regarded as the beit
protection against the horrors of the small-'
Ilex, was practiced In China - at a•very - early
period, and . probably found its way to Eu.
ippelty the . same secret' channels as' those'
other arts whosefootateps'are . so difficuitto

Turks, 'Lady Mary Wortley Montagne'
having made the:find experiment of its efil-•
