There is little , pleasure in visiting the
places within the walls of Jerusalem which
are reported to he the scenes of the acts
and the sufferings of Christ. There is no
certainty about these ; and the spots regard.
lug which there can-be no mistake; are so
intsfesting, tliat' the mind and heart of the
traveller turn away from such as are fab
ulous. About the site of the t :Inple there
is no doubt.; and beyond the walls one
meets at every, turn assuOtice of being
where Christ walked and taught, and where
the gieat events .of Jewish history took
place. , Let us go over what ! found in one
ramble ; and then my reader will see what
it must be to take walks in the neighbor
hood of Jerusalem.
Leaving the city by the :Bethlehem gate,
we descended into the valley of Mutton],
or Gehenna. Here there are many tombs
cut in the rock, with entrances like door
ways. When I speak of Bethany, I shall
have occasion to describe the tombs of the
1 Jews. It was in this valley, and clue by
the fountain of Siloatn,tha‘ in the days of
Jewish idolatry, children passed through
the fire, in honor of Moloch. This is the
place called Tophet in Scripture, fit , to be
spoken of as it was, as an image or hell.—
Here, in this. place:of corruption and cruel
ty, where fires hovered about living bodies,
and worms preyed on the dead—here was
the imagery of terror—"the wotm that
(Beth not, and the fire that is not quenched,"
The scene is very different now. The
slopes are terraced, that the winter rains
may not wash away the soil.; sad these
terraces were today green with springing
wheat; and the spreading olives and fig
trees east their shadows on the ,rich. though
stony soil. Streams were lea from the
pool of Siloam among the fields and gar
dens; and all looked cool and fresh in the
once hellish spot. ()a the ,top of the op
posite hill was the Field of Blood—the
field boaght as a burial place for strangers,
by theprieins to whom Judas restored his
bribe. For the burial of strangrs, it was
used is eabsamhent ages ; for p ilgrims who
died at the Holy City were laid there. It
is now no longer enclosed ; but a charnel
house marks the spot.
The pools all round Jerusalem are beau
tiful; the cool arching roof of some, the
weed-tufted sides and clear waters. of all.
are delicious. The pool of Siloam is stall
pretty--though less so, 'no doubt,' than
when the blind man, sent to 'wash there,
Opened his eye!, on'its sacred stream. The
fountain of Siloam 'ls more beautiful than
the pook-Jrt lief deep` in a tave, and
must be reached by broad steps which
wind down in the shadow. A. woman
Sat to-day, in -the dim light o( reflected
sunshine, washing linen in the pool. Here
it was that in the days of old the priest
came down with his golden pitcher, to
draw water for the 'temple service; said
hither it was that the thought of Milton
came, when he sang of—
We were now in the valley of Jehosa
phat ; and we crossed the bottom of it,
where the brook Kedron must run when
it runs at all ; but it seems to be now mere
ly a winter torrent, and never, to have been
a constant stream. When we had ascend
ed the opposite side of the valley, we were
on the Mount of Olives. The ascent was
steep—now among the tombs, now past
fields of waving barley, flecked with the
shade of olive trees. As we ascended,
the opposite hill seemed to rise, and the
city to spread. Two horsemen in the
valley, and a woman with a burderon her
head, mounting to the city by a 'path up
Moriah, looked so surprisingly small as to
prove the grandeur of the scenery. Here-

abouts it was, as it is said, and may reatiott•
ably, be believed; that Jesus mourned over
Jerusalem, and told his follorreis , char
would become of the noble city winch libre
rose upon their view, crowning the sacred
mount,and shining clear against the cloud-
less sky. Dwellers in our climate cannot
conceive of such a sight as Jerusalem; tree
from the summit of the Mount of Olives.
The Moab mountains, over towards the
Dead Sea, are dressed in the softest hues
of purple, lilac, and grey. The hill coun
try to the north is almost gaudy with its
contrasts of color ;
its white or grey stones,
red soil, and crops of vivid green. But
the city is the glory—aloft on the steep—
itslonglines of wall cleorly defining_it to
the sight, and every minaret and cupola;
and almost every stone marked out by the
brilliant sunshine against the deep blue sky.
In the spaces nnbuilt on within the walls,
are tufts of verdure; and cypresses spring
here and there from some cottvent garden.
The green lawns of the Mosque of Omar
are spread out small before the eye, with
their groups_of tiny gay moving people.—
If it is now. so glorious a place to the eye,
what must it have been in the days of its
pride ! Yet in that day, when every Oh
looked for the exulting blessing, uPeace
within thy wane, and prosperity within
thy palaces," there came, instead * the lam
entation over Jerusalem, that killed the
prophets add stoned the messengers of Je
hovah, and whose house must be left deso
The disciple, looking hence upon the
strength of the walls, the massiveness of
thetemple buildings, then springing 480 feet
from the bed of the brook below, and the
depth and and ruggedness of the ravines
surrounding the city on three sides, might
well ask when those, gtings should be, and
how they should be accomplished. On the
fourth side, the north, where there is no ra
vine. the Roman army was encamped.—
We could now see that rising grouud, once
covered with the Roman tents", but to-day
with cornfields and olive grounds. The
Romans encamped one legion on the Mount
of Olives ; but it could not do any harm to
the city ; and the only available point of
attack—the north aide—was guarded by a
moat three walls, _The _ was_
Fong ; so long that meats hearts fail
for fear, and at least one famished woman
ate her own child : and at last the city was
taken and nearly destroyed ; and of the
temple, not one. stone was left upon another.
Now we were in the midst of those scenes
to-slay ! We stood where the doom was
pronounced ; below us was the camp of
the single legion I have mentioned ; oppo
site was the humbled city, with the site of
the teaple courts; and over to the north
was the camp of the enemy. Here was
the whole scene of that "great tribulation,
such as was not known from the beginning
of the world."
From the summit of Olivet, we went
down to the scene pf that other tribulation
—that anguish of mind which had perhaps
never been surpassed front the beginning
of the world. "When Jesus had spoken
these words" (his words of cheer after the
last supper,) "he went forth," we are told,
"with his disciples. over the brook Kedren,
where was a garden." The garden we
entered to-day from the other direculm,
and left it by crossing the bed of the brook.
It is a dreary place now, very unlike what
it must have been when "Jesus ofttimes re
sorted thither with his disciples." his a plot
of ground on a slope above the brook { cock's.
ed with fences of lose stones, and occupied
by eight extremely old olive trees--the
oldest, I should think we saw iu all our
travels. Ido not mean that they 'could
have been growing in the days of Christ.
That is supposed to be impossible ; though
1 never could leant what is the greatest
age known to be attained by the olive tree.
The roots of these were supported by little
terraces of stones, that I neither trees nor
soil might be washed dowd the ••slope by
the winter torrents. But little remains of
these once fine trees but hollow trunks and
a few straggling branches. It is with the
mind's eye that we must see the filling up
of this garden enclosure, when "Jesus oft.
times resorted thither"—its orchard of fig,
pomegranate, and olive trees, and the grass
or young springing corn under foot. From
every part of it the approach of Judas and
his party must have been , visible. 'By
their "lanterns, and torches, and weapons,"
gleaming in the light, they must have been
seen descending the hill from the city gate.
The sleeping disciples may , nothave heed
ed the lights and footsteps of the multitude ;
but step by,step as it wound down the
steep, and then crossed the brook, and
turned up to the garden. the victim knew
that the hour of his fste drew on.
By the way the crowd came down, we
now ascended towards the city, turning it,
side, however, to skirt the north wally Id
stead of returning home through the streets.
N9t to, mention now other things that we
saw, We noted much connected with.the
siege : the nature of the ground--favora
ble for the encampment of an army, and
the shallow' moat under- the walls, where
the Romans brought tvro great wooden
towers on.wheels, that the men in the tow
ers might fight On a level with.those on the
walls; and throw inissibminto Abe. town.—
This scene of conflict is very quiet now.
A crop of barley, was -ripening trader the
very Walls ; and an Arab, with a eat, mild
countenance, was Whet his water‘skine at
the pool, called the sheep-pool; near tho
Damascus gate- The proud Roman and
despairing Jew were not more unlike each
other than this Arab, with his pathetic face,
was unlike them both. As' he stooped
under the dim arches of the rock, and his 1
red cap came into contrast with the dark
grey of the still water below, and the green
of the dangling weeds over his head, our'
thoughts were recalled td our own day,"and
a sense of the beauty we met leek in ev
ery nook and corner of the Holy Land.
From this ramble, my readers may see
something of what it is to take walks in
the neighborhood of Jerusalem.

My heart is very gladsome :
But there's a corner deep,
Where many a sorrow nestlee.
And future sorrows sleep.

I hope they'll not awaken,
As yet for ninny a year;
There's not on earth a jewel,
That's worth ono grief born tear
Long may the heart be silent,
If sorrow's touch alone,
Upon the chords descending,
Has power to wake its tone.

Robinson had a small valice carried by

down perfectly at his case. But this was
not to last long. One of the .sure enough'

"Do you know who that man is, cap

"Not exactly," replied the captain, "but
I think he is one of the teamsters under

and so saying he went to the clerk's otlice.
