was born, and the Marble slab which is laid in the
place of the manger. When I saw, throug h out the
Country, how the Arabs now use the caves of the
hills to bed their goats and cattle; this belief of the
friars appeared lesi absurd than it Would with us;
bht still, it is so int Probable that the precise spot of
theie tiatiaiidtions (whose importance was not
known till afterwards) should have been marked
and remembered, that I felt little interested in them
in comparison with the landscape, outside about
whose leading features there could be no mistake.
From the bottom of the garden, we ovsvlooked
the great valley which expanded to the north-east;
and one enclosure there—a green apt now occu.
pied by olive trees—was pointed to us tke field
where the shepherds were abiding on the night
when Christ was born. Behind it, to the east, lay
range behind range of hills, stretching off' to the
north ; and among these, we knew, lay the Dead
Sea, and the Jordan, where it pours its waters into
that lifeless and melancholy lake. As we left the
convent and village, and descended the rocky road,
with terraced vineyards and olive groves on either
hand, we knew that Joseph and Mary must have
come by this way from Jerusalem when - summoned :
to the census; and this was more to us than all the
sights the friars had shown us in their zeal and
kindness. We looked in at the tomb of Rachael,
and at the convent of Elias; but our eyes and
thoughts were bent towards Jerusalem. I remem
ber, however, that here I first saw the waters of
the Dead Sett, lying blue in a little gap between the
As soon as I had mounted my ass before the con
vent of Elias, I saw from our ridge some buildings
on the rising ground which now showed itself be
fore us. I was not immediately certain what they
were; but the news soon spread among us. That
rising ground was Zion, and those buildings be
longed to Jerusalem, though they stood ontsidc the
wall. Immediately after, the walled city itself
came into view, lying along the hills. Most of the
party were disappointed. I was not—partly be.
cause I knew that we were approaching it from
the least favorable side, and partly because my ex
pectations had much underrated the size and gran
deur of the city. What we now saw was a line of
white walls on a bill side, with some square build
ings and small white domes rising within.
I walked the rest of the way. On our right
were hills, the summit of one of which was Acelde
ma, bought by the priests with the money which
the wretched Judas returned to them, when he
found too late what lie had done in his attempt to
force his Lord to assert his claim to a temporal sove.
reignty. On our left was the plain of Rephaim.
When we arrived at the brow of the high ground
we were on, we were taken by surprise by the gran
deur of the scene. Zion now appeared worthy of
her name, and of her place in the hymns of David,
and in history. We were now overlooking the
valley of Gillol7, more commonly known by the
name of Hinnom. From its depth, and its precip
itous rocks on our side, I should call it a ravine.—
This deep dell contains the Lower Pool,. now dry;
and the aqucduet from Soloman's Fools is seen
crossing it obliquely.. Its opposite side is Zion,,
rising very steeply, still terraced foe tillage in some
parts, and crowned by the city wall.. Ma the right,.
sweeping away from. the ravine of Gihon„is the
deep and grand valley of lehoshcphat, clustered
with rocks, relieved by trees, and leading the eye
round to the slope of Olivet, which, however,is best
seen from the other side of the city.. The black
dome of the tomb of David was the next object;
and after that, the most conspicuous roof in the
city—the great dome of the Mosque of Omarovitich
occupies the site of Solomon's Temble...
By this time, there was silence among us. I
walked behind our cavalcade, as it slowly ascended
the beautiful rocky way—glad of the silence per
mitted by each to all ; for it was not possible at
the moment—nor will it ever be possible—to-speak
of the impressions of that hour. Wo entered by
the Jaffa gate; and every echo. of our horses' feet
in the narrow, stony, picturesque streets, told upon
our hearts as we said to ourselves that we were
taking up our rest in Jerusalem.

an expose of the meaner in which these unfortu

Through the medium of an interpreter, it was
proven that the captain got them on board on pre.
tenet of making a voyage to the Island of Java
for a cargo of sugar, which voyage was, by the
agreement entered into betwein the crew and the
captain, not to last over eight months. Instead of
going to Java, the Junk came to New York, and
there she remains. The cause of these unfortu

the case. _

Ladles are Cautioned Against Using
CON:TION PREPARED CHALK:
TIiEY arc not aware how frightfully injuri
ous it is to the skin! how coarse, how
rough, bow sallow, yellow, and unhealthy the
skin appears after using pepared chalk! Be
sides it is injurious, containing a large quan
tity of Lead ! We have prepared a beautiful
vegetable article, which we call
Jones' Spanish Lily White.
It is perfectly innocent, being purified of all
deleterious qualities ; and it imparts to the skin
a natural, healthy, alabaster, clear, living
white; at the same time acting as a cosmetic
on the skin, making it soft and smooth.
Dr. James Anderson, Practical Chemist of
Massachusetts, says: " After analyzing Jones'
Spanish Lily White, I find it possesses the most
beautiful and natural, and at the same time
innocent white I ever saw. I certainly can
conscientiously recommend its use to all whose
skin requires beautifying." Price 25 cents a
