This city, the capital of Chaldea, was
built by Nimrod, adjacent to the tower of
Babel. It was the capital of Nimrod's em
pire: so that its antiquity is unquestion
able. The city was square, fifteen miles,
every way, the whole circuit being of six
ty miles. The walls were built with
large bricks, cemented with bitumen, a
thick glutinos, fluid which tiers out of
the earth in the country hereabouts; it
binds stronger than inorter, and becomes
harder than the brick itself. These walls
were eighty-seven feet thick, and three
hundred and fifty feet high. Those au
thors who mention them as only fifty cu
hits high, refer to their condition, after
Darius, son of flystaspes, had command
ed theinito be demolished down to that
height, as:a punishment l'or a rebellion of
The city was encompassed with a vast
ditch, which was filled with water ; and
brick work was carried up on both aides,
The earth which was dug out, was employ
ed in making the brick for the walls of
the city; so that one may judge of the
depth and width of the ditch by the ex
treme light and thickness of the walls.
There were a hundred gates to the city,
twenty-five on each of the four aides :
these gates, with their posts. cssc. were of
brass. Between every two of these gates
were three towers, raised ten feet above
the walls, where necessary ; tor the city
being encompassed in several, places with !
marshes which defend the approach to' it, I
there was no need of towers on those
A street answered to each gate, so that
there were fifty streets in all, cutting one
another at right angles ; each fifteen tidies
in length, and one hundred and fifty-one
feet wide. Four other streets having
houses only on one side, the ramparts be
ing on the other, made the whole compass
of the city ; each of these streets was two
hundred feet wide. As the streets of
Babylon crossed one another at right an
gles, they formed six hundred and seven
ty-six squares, each square four furlongs
and a half on every side, making two
miles and a quartr in circuit. The hous
es of these squares were three or four
stories high, there fronts were adorned
with embellishtnents, and the inner space
was courts and gardens.
The Euphrates divided the city into two
parts, culling from north to south. A
bridge of admirable structure, about a fur
long in length, and sixty feet wide, form
ed the communication over the river ; at
the two extremities of this bridge were
two palaces, the old palace on the east
side of the river, the new palace on the
west. The temple of (lotus, which stood
near the old palace, occupied one entire
square; the city was situated in a vast
plain, whose soil was extremely fat and
To people this immense city, Nebuchad
nezzar transplanted hither an infinite
number of captives from among the many
nations subdued by him.
Something should be said of those fa
mous hangin. ' gardens which adorned the
palace in Babylon, which are ranked
among the wonders of the world.
They contained four hundred feet
square ; they were composed of several
large terraces ; the platform of the highest
terrace equalled the walls of l3ad y lon in
height—three hundred and fifty feet.—
From one terrace to that above it, was an
ascent by stairs ten feet wide. This
whole mass was supported by large vaults
built one upon another,
by a wall twenty-two feet thick, covered
with stones, ru , lies, and bitumen, and
plates of lead, to preveut leaking.
There was so great a depth of earth that
the largest trees might take root. Here
was every thing that could please the
sight ; the largest trees, flowers, plants
and shrubs. On the highest terrace, was
an aqueduct supplied with water from the
river. From whence the garden was
watered. It is affirmed, that Nebuchad
nezzar undertook this wonderful and fa
mous edifice, out of complaisance to his
wife Amytis, the daughter of Astyages ;
who, being a native of Media, retained
strong inclinations for mountains and for
ests, which abouuded in her native coun

to act as Agent for the sale and delivery of

Stove, manufacturnd by A. B. Long & Co.,
who have at a heavy expense secured the
exclusive right of Patentee of Huntingdon
and other counties. .
No bombastic eulogy is deemed essential
to add to the already acquired celebrity of
this stove. It is necessary, however, to ob
serve that the high reputation this stove has
gained by practical use, has induced the man
ufrctnrers of other and inferior articles, to
borrow (not to use a harsher term) the name
of HATHAWAY, and prefix it to an "Im
proved," in order to make their inferior
trash go off as genuine, and thereby impose
upon the public. 1, myself, sell the only
HEAL HA I'HAWAY stove that is or can
be sold in this county, and would therefore
admonish the public against the imposition
above alluded to. lam happy in being able
to say, confidently, that during the last three
or four years, in which I have been con

1 have found them to give universal and
unbounded satisfaction. Any communica
