In consequence of the multiplication of slop shops in

the more offals of New York and Philadelphia slop

PYRAMIDS OF EGYPT.
The Boston Transcript gives a synopsis of a lecture
by Mr. Gr:i 'don on Tuesday evening, from bib WO
quote the following I
"Cursorily glancing over the nations regarding the
pyramids contained in the works of the last two cen.
tunes, he brought forward some of the wrong opini.
ors, before presenting the right. Such as, attributing
their erection to the first children of Noah, in the hope
of elevating, themselves above the waters in case tithe
return of the deluge ! The supposition that they were
built by the Patriarch Seth, before the flood for his
tomb; and by the Hykshos and Celtic Druids. A fa.
ye, ite theory has been to make the hapless Israelite*
, heir workmen=whilst Cslntet came in for a slap for
I his attempt to prove that Moses and Aaron were the
foremen of the work, Some writers have made them
the granaries of Joseph, or his tomb—and again the
tomb of Pharaoh who was drowned in the Red See,
This last idea Was refuted at once by the facttinat the
erection of the 39 pyramids in Egypt antedate to
Al walla nt by many generations, and that neither Joseph
or Pharaoh' could be buried in 39 places at once!
Some writers assert that they were erected by ctiptire
Trojans ; a thousand years before .Troy was bulk.
More recent writers have tried to demonstrate thatthe
Pyramids were built solely "to square the circle," or s
fur vast reservoirs in which the waters of the Nile
were purified. They have been thought to be sate.

oddest idea of all, raised as the burial place of the bull
Apis; and possibly to receive the remains of a cow.
The day is passed., he said, when we are forced to acs
cept as the emanations of Greek or Roman original
wisdom, truths, the primitive source of which in Egypt,
is attested by existing monuments as belonging to ages
long before 'Muses.
But, to the facts about the Pyramids. Mr. Giddon
said, that as to the epoch of their construction; they
were built between North and Abraham, hr the mini.
lel of Bible chronology; and between Mime. the las
Pharaoh of Egypt, and the aCetbision oi'the 10th The.
ban dynasty in the scale of hieroglyphieal chronology.
They all existed, and many of them were ancient in
B. C. 2272. They all are 4000 years old, and soot*
of them near 5000. They were built by the Egyptian
children of Ham—the Caucasian and Asiatic descends
, ants of Noah, who colonized Egypt after the flood, and
become Egyptians. As to the objects of the Pyramids,
they are exceedingly sepulchral, being the royal tomb.
of those Egyptian kings Who died between the Ist and
12th dynasty of Marietho.
The lecturer next proceeded to remark upon the tk , ..
Hods and progress of the modern explorations at rho
Pyramids of Memphis, "cutting up" in the onset, the
speculations of uninformed travelers from Bruce in
1763 to any ignorant any-body else in 1831—including

Minutoli and Dr Marucchi had made enplonttions in
the pyramids, discovering some new passages, clearing
sway sand, &c., but found nothing satisfactory to rev
ward them; and it was not untillB2s that Champollion'a
interpretation was brought to bear upon these massy
structures. Messrs. I\ ilkinson, Burton and others,
explored them topographically and proved their se
pulchral utilities, and in 1828-29, the French and

era date from 1892; and as a clear knowledge of Egyps

Stockings come higher thin socks, though the supply
of the latter is short. Shawls are cheaper than they
