tarn to Jerusalem.
Wednesday Evening, March 16.—We have
-pitched our tents this evening on the plains of
Jericho. We left Jerusalem at nine this morn
ing. Oar road lay across the southerly slope
of the Mount of Olives. It was intensely in
tereAtingto me, as going over the groiind"of
onr Saviour’s daily walk during the last week
of bis life, as he went on the evening ef each
bnsy day to seek rest and comfort in the house
of Lazarus. We stopped to see what is pointed
out as the spot where that house stood.. The n
•nr course lay-for six hears through the wil
derness of Judea. A wilder,! more barren and
desolate Tegion I never saw. This was the
scene of the temptation. The incidents of the
parable of the good Samaritan took place here
And the country is essentially, the same now
that it was then. We diil.not see a single
human habitation in the whole journey. The
traveler vfho goes alone or unprotected will be
as likely to “fall among thieves” now as
then. The wild Arabs roam over the desolate
regionrand-fall on the unprotected as their
legitimate prey. We stopped at noon to rest
and lunch under the shadow of a great rook.
amidst the ruins of an old Kahn, or inn—the
actual inn of the parable, if it was a real his
tory—the ideal of it, if it was a fiction. In the
afternoon we passed one of the wildest gorges
in Palestine. At the bottom of it was the bed
of a little stream, with a margin of green aloiig
its course. This is “ the brook Cherith, over
against Jordan,” where Elijah found a refuge
.from the: cruel designs of Ahab. The wild
.sublimity •of the scene must have been in
harmony with the stern grandeur of the pro
phet’s nature- At the close of the ..after-'
noon we came eat on the plains of Jericho.
The fertility here prevailing contrasts
strikingly with the desolation of the mouD.
tain region through which we have jnst passed.
Onr camp is pitched by the ruins of old'Jeri
cho, and near what iskno wh as the ( Prophet’B
Spring. .lit is said to be the r one whoso waiter
Elisha sweetened. It issues from the footof a
hill, and flovre ’away jn quite a considerable,
volume to the Jordan. Here, for the first time
in Palestine, onr.ear? were greeted with the
sound of flowing water. After ireashing onr
tents, we hastened away to tho stream, and in
4higed in the luxury df a- hath. It was perl
feetty delightful. As we “sat at the door of'
our teat at the cool of the day,” this evening,
ihethercnotneter stood at eighty degrees. The
scene before us is very inspiring. Yonder, in
fullyiew, are the “ Mountains of Moab,” from
one of .whose summits ‘‘ Moses stood and
viewed the landscape o’er!” Directly in front
• of- us-is-the : place where Israel-crossed over
Jordan. On this plain they encamped to re
new the national covenant, and keep the first
■Passover after leaving Egypt. It was here
they marched, in solemn silence round the
walls of Jericho—and here, when "the final
shout was given, “the walls fell down flat;”
It was here that Elijah divided the river with
bis mantle, and just on the£other side of Jor
dan from here, it was that he' ascended to
heaven in the fiery chariot. How solemnly
the recollection of such events stirs one’s soul
to its'loweet depths! ■ ■

the Pools of Solomon, Friday Evening March
18.—' Yesterday and to-day have been very in
teresting days, though I have neither time nor
space to do more .than gave a very brief out
line sketch of them.' But before doing this, it
just occurs to me that I have not told you the
result of our photograph experiment. The
agreement made with the operator was that
we were not to take the pictures unless they
proved satisfactory. They failed to do this,
and so we did not take them. He took three
impressions. In the best of these, two or
three of the figures were very well done, but
mine had a white spot over the right eye and
all down the cheek. and Dumas had
their eyes put out in the Bame way. So we de
clined to take them, as .there was no time to
try again. '
We left Jericho yesterday morning for the
Jordan, striking it at the ford known as the
“ Pilgrim’s Bathing Place.” It is about the
place where Israel crosped, and where Jesus
was baptized by Jobn. It is not as wide as the
Schuylkill—tho water muddy, and' the stream
rapid. It is very pleasant, water to drink. We
all look a hath, and after filling some canteens
with water from the sacred river, to bring
home,we visited the Dead Sea. And then,af ter
a long ride across the mountains of that Wil
derness of Jndah into which Jesus was led up,
alter his baptism in Jordan, “to- 1 be-tempted
of the devil,” and among whose,scenes of utior
desolation,with the wild beasts around him, ho
“fasted forty days for. our sakes,” we pitched
our tents for the night outside the walls of the
Greek Convent of Mt. Tabor. Leaving there,
this morning, we continued our ride through
the wilderness till wo reached Bethlehem- At,
ter examining its points of interest, we caine
on here in a drenching rain, and arrived at our
tents wet through.* Having left our baggage
at Jerusalem, wo had nothing to change with,
and no fire at which to dry ourselves; so, wi'.eu
the-rain ceased, we turned out to examine
:tbose interesting reiic.s of Holomon’.s grandeur,
and so keep in motion till the clothes should
dry from internal heat.
Jerusalem, Sunday, I March 20.—We were to
have gone on to Hebron yesterday, and have
spent Sunday there; but in view of the pros
pect of continued rain, wo concluded it was
most prudent to let Hebron go, and get back
lo our trunks, sq as not. to be under the neces
sity of repeating Friday’s method of drying
ourt< ®*T < ‘ fl ;. *^ n( VT ghid wo did; for, after

ItoMlnl’s “ Messe Stolennelle-’*
The concert given at the MusicaUfiund Hall,
ftttra eled 'alargwaudierice anKeeinCd to gi ve"
a great deal of satisfactlqn.to most of the per
sons ■ present. The programme contained
Beethoven’s Quintette for piano and wind
instruments, and Rossini’s famous posthumous
work the “ Messo Solennelle.” Of the former
beautiful composition we may say that it was
played very cleverly by IMessrs.Thunder.PJage
mann, Stdll; Kellner and Mueller. For the
Mass Mr. Thunder secured the services of
about forty persons, among whom were several
amateur singers ef more or less merit. Some
more judicious selections might have been
made for one or two of. the solos, but the
chorus was in many respects excellent, and if
•did good and valiant service with the splendid
.imisic.allotted to it—There .was a-very-marked
deficiency in the tenors, although the array of
gentlemen affecting that division of the music
was quite formidable. If there had been fewer
bodies and more voice, the result would have
been more satisfactory; [as it was, in some of
the fugues, where the tenor should have been
carried along, with evenness and ‘distinctness,
it could hardly be distinguished. But the
general performance of the ohorus was so
good that wo may easily pardon this defect,
and with greater readiness, because we appre-
date the difficulty of any number
of con petent amateur tenors in this city. *
The first two numbers of the mass, the
Kyrie and Gloria,were sung in a most admira
ble manner by the chorus. The Gratias, a de
licious trio for contralto, tenor and bass, was
about the most satisfactory performance of a
concerted piece given duriDg the evening.
Mr. Cochran and Mr. Briscoe, bass and tenor,
both have good voices, and-with the contralto,
who is also a fine singer, they gave the music
in a fashion that deserves hearty praise. Dr.
F. B. Thomas undertook the Domini Deus, a
tenor aria which requires for its just interpre
: tation not only a pretty good voice hut a very
great deal of warm feeling and passionate-ex
pression. Dr. Thomas’s voice is excellent, buthe
does not possess the other necessary qualities!n
such a degree that he succeeded in touching
the hearts of his hearers. - It is perhaps too
much to expect of any of the ladies and gentle
men who participated in this concert, that
they should display the highest kind of skill,
and it is hardly fair to criticise ■ their
performance too closely, but it is
true that this fine solo lost much of . its
effect by the unsympathetic manner in which
it was sung. The Qui'Tollis, a duett for-con
tralto and soprano, is a magnificent composi
tion, fuilof florid writing and theatrical ef
fects. It might be sung npon the stage, in
a suggestion of its sacred char-'
aeter occurring to the audience. The contralto
singer has a rich, Bweet voice, and sang de
liciously; but the soprano was somewhat hard
and shrill, and the voices did not blend nicely.
Mr.~Millcr,~avery good - baritone “iangrtlie
Quoniain, which is one of the most splendid
arias for a bass voice ever written by anybody,
if Mr. Miller possessed a bass voice, doubt
less he could sing this superb music with
proper effect. He did himself a great deal of
credit as it was, "but it was impassible that he
i should do entire justice to the music, some of
which was beyond his reach. The Crucifix us
is one of the choicest arias in the entire com
position, and it has been sung in this city by
at least one excellent artist, ■ ;
but if we remember rightly, even she failed
to give it with that deep feeling and exqui
site tenderness with which the music. should
inspire a really eloquent and capable singer.
If was sung last night by a lady-whose simple
execution was admirable; bather voice lacked
sympathy and sweetness, and her manner
was mechanical, and withont a particle of
earnestness. The audience was not at all
critical, however, and the aria received an
encore, whereupon it was repeated in a style
even more unsatisfactory than at first. Miss
Petry sang the lovely contralto solo, “ O, Saluw
taris,” with good effect. Appreciating the
sentiment, she infused into the aria some
passion and fervor, and displayed her full,
round, sweet voice to best advantage. She
received a well-deserved encore, and sang the
part again in a most praiseworthy manner.
The spirited chorus, “ Cum Sanctu Spjritu,”
with its wonderful and difficult fugue, the
plaintive “ Credo,” the joyous chorus and
tiigue, “Et Eessurexit,” and the “Sanctus,”
were sung splendidly by the full chorus,
which, as we have said, was really very com
petent, and gave entire satisfaction throughout
the performance. / . .
Mr. Dietrich accompanied most of the music
with taste and skill upon the piano, while Miss
Waugh’s management of the reed organ was
extremely creditable,

For the bem fit of .Mr. Adam Evorly, last
nighth the Arch Street Theatre Was packed
with Ouq of the largest ntuUoncos it evurshoi-
tered,—an audience such sis we are accus
tomed to see at the Academy on its gala nights;
*it was a marked and; gratifying testimonial of
sympathy from the “eloct” of Philadelphia
sosiety. - The principal play selected was '77k
Past FamUy, and onr readers know the costly
and elegant manner; in which that drama is
set by the Arch. Mr. Everly assumed the rile
of Didler.” He succeeded in expressing the
-depths of jealous passion without ever trans
gressing; the manners of cultivated society—
which we take to be the problem of the part,'
*and in which Mr. Everly’s absolute success is
a warrant of his ability. Wb shall hesitate to .
say that he was even exceeded in the role by the
last actor w« happened to sea in it, Frederic
Fehvre, at the Vaudeville. As tor Mrs
Drew as “ Clotilde,” and Mrs. Thayer as
“Adolphine,” we->consider that, they were
fully equal to Mines. Fargueil and Alexis.
In both parts, it is true, the French comedi
emtes adopt a style of more absolute repose,
1 never quitting for a moment the manners of
the drawing room; hut the acting we saw last
night, especially that of Mrs. Drew as the
intelligent family-friend, had more energy
and real life, and sketched the character in a
way to be better understood hy American au
diences. Atthe conclusion of the piece the
beneficiary, in a few polished words, ex
pressed his satisfaction in returning “ home "
again, to the scene of his first professional
sueh a magnificent reception. , Ihe entertmn
ment conclnded with The Spitalfields Weaver,
with Mr. Everly as “ Brown ” the weaver.

*f be Old Yeocomleo Cburoh.
Mr. Editor :—Will you be kind enough to
give place in the colnmns of the Evening
Bulletin to the following appeal in behalf
of “ Old Yeocomico Ghureh,” Westmoreland
county, Virginia?
A quotation from the pen of Bishop Meade
may. not be an—inappropriate prefatory.
“ Yeocomico Church, so called after a river of
tliTt name, is one of the old churches, being
built in the year HOC., .The architecture is
rough, hut very strong, and the materials must
have been of the best. kind. " Its figure is that
.of a cross, and situated as it is,-in~a” little
recess from the* main" road, -in the midst of
some aged trees, and surrounded by an old
brick wall which is fast mouldering away, it
cannot fail to be an object of in
terest. to, one whose soul has sympathy
for such scenes. . During the - war of 1812
it was shamefully abused Dyjhe soldiers who
were quartered tn it while watching the move
ments of the British on the Potomac. The
communion table was removed into the yard,
where it served as a butcher’s block, add was
entirely defaced- Being of substantial mate
rial,,however, it admitted of a new faoeland
polish, and is now.restored to its former place,
where we trust it will answer for a long time
the holy purposes for which it was originally
designed. Nor was the baptismal font exempt'
from profanation. It was taken some miles
from the church, and used as a vessel in which
to prepare the excitements to nugodly mirth.
The canvasses on which the Ten Command
ments. the Lord’s prayer and the Creed were
impressed, were so torn by the soldiers that
they could no longer be permitted to retain
their place, and are now lying in fragments in
one of the unoccupied pews.” In addition to
this, tradition tells ns that not only in the war
of 181/i was this sacred edifice used-as bar
racks, but also in the early years of onr fore
fathers’ glorious achievement of indepen
dence. During the late civil contest, it was
again profaned; and although the roof and
walls are in good preservation, the interior is
in such a state of dilapidation that uuless some
friendly hand is stretched forth'to save it, it
must e’en become
“ A tottering monument;
A silent, solitary thing.”
It being our earnest desire to restore this
temple of God to-its pristine glory, and feeling
inadequate to meet the necessary expense
attenuing thereto, we prayerfully solicit such
pecuniary aid from those who feel interested
in the extension and promotion of Chris
tianity, and who venerate the memory of such
patriots as 'Washington, Lee and Parker, as
Cod may open their hearts to bestow. L.
Contributions left at the office of the Even
ing Bulletin will be gratefully acknow
ledged. —• •
In 1732, .Thomas Penn contracted with
Tedyuscung and some others for a title to all
-the.land in Pennsylvania to be taken oil' by a
parallel latitude from any point as far as the
best of three men could walk in a day, be
tween funrise aiid sunset, from a certain
chestnut tree, at or near Bristol, in a northwest
diiectiun. Care was taken to select the most
capable for such a walk.' The choice fell on
James Yates, a native of Bucks county, a tall,
slim man of much agility and speed of foot;
Solomon Jennings, a Yankee, remarkably
stout and strong; Edward Marshall, a native
of Bucks county, a noted hunter, chain-carrier,
&c., a large, heavy set anil strong-boned mam.
The day (one of the longest in the year) was
appointed and the champions notified. The
people collected at what they thought the first
twenty miles of the Durham road, to see them
pass. First came Yates stepping as light as a
feather, accompanied by T. Penn and atten
dants on horseback. After him, but out of
sight, came Jenniug’s with a strong, steady
step; and not far behind, Edward Marshall,
apparently careless, swinging a hatchet in his
hand, and eating a dry biscuit. Bets ran in
favor of Yates. \ Marshall took biscuit to sup
port his stomach, and carried a hatchet to
swing in his arms alternately, that the action
in his arms should balance that in his legs, as
lie was-fully determined to beat the others, or
die in the attempt. lie said he first saw Yates
in descending Durham creek, and gained on
him. There he. saw Yates sitting on a
“log, very tired; presently he fell off. and gave
up the walk. 1
Marshall kept on, and before he reached the
Lthigh overtook and passed Jennings— waded
the river at Bethlehem—hurried on faster anil
faster by where Nazareth stands, to the Wind
Gap. That was as far as the path had been
maiked for them to walk on, and there was a
collection of people waiting to see if any of the.

for the surveyor to give! him a pocket compass,
and started again., Three Indian runners were
sent after him to seo if he walked it fair, and
how far he went. He then: passed to the, right,
of Pocono ‘Mountain, the Indians finding it
difficult to keep in' sight,'till he reached Still
Water; and he' would have gone a few miles
fijther but'for the water. There he marked a
tree, witnessed by ,tlie three Indians. The dis
