We Hass now over two centuries and a
half. About five years ago the CavaHere
de Rossi found lying upon the ground, in
a Cigna bordering on the Apian Way, a
bout two miles from Rome, a portion of a
sepulchral stone on which were the letters
NELIUS MAR I'YR, the NE broken r
cross. He immediately conjecturechlint
this was a piece of the stone that had co
vered the grave of Pope Cornelius, [A, D.
250-253,] and on the truth of this conjec-
ture important results depended. It was
known that this pope had beeniuried in
the Catacombs of St. Callixtus; aird it was
known also, front the itineraries and some
other sonrces, that his grave was not in the
same chamber with the graves of the oth
er popes who were buried in those cats•
combs, but that it was not far away from
it. It was further known, as we have seen,
t hat the chapel in which St Cecilia was
buried was close to the Chamber of the
Popes. But a tradition dating front a late
period of the Middle Ages had given the
the name of Callixtus to the catacombs
opening from the Church of St. Sebastian,
at a little greater from Rome. . In these
catacombs the place supposed to be that of
St. Cecilia's grave was pointed out, and an
inscription set up to murk the spot. by a
French archbishop, in •he year 1409, still
exists. Many indications, however, led
De Rossi to disbelieve tradition and to din.
trust this authority. It contradicted the
brief indications of the itineraries, and
could not be reconciled with other estab
lished facts. Not far from the place where
the broken inscription was found was an
accidental entrance into the catacombs
which had been supposed to have been ori
ginally connected with those of St. Sebes
I ' )

tian, but were believed by Dl' Rossi to be
a portion of the veritable catacombs of
St. Callixtus, and quite separate from the
former. The paths in tlrs part, however.
were stopped up in so many directions,
that it was impossible to get an entrance
through them to such parts as might deter.
mine the question. Again, in the neigh.
borhood of the discovery of the broken
stone was an old building, used forn stable
and fir other mean purposes. On exami
nation of it, De Rossi. satisfied himself that
it had been originally one of the churches
erected in the fourth oentury at the en
trance of the catacombs, and be had little
doubt that he had now round the place of
the main descent into the catacombs of St.
Callixtus. The discovery was a great
one ; for near the main entrance had been
the burial-place of the popes, and of St.
Cecilia. De Rossi laid the results of his
inductive process of archmologioal reason
ing before tho pope, who immediately gave
orders for the vurchase of the vigna, and
directions that excavations should at once
be begun.
The work was scarcely begun, before
an ancient stairway, long ago buried under ;
accumulated earth and rubbish, was dis
covered, leading down to the gavl,' story
oi the catacombs. The passage into which
it opened were filled with earth, hut. as
this was cleared away, n series of chain-
bees of unusual size, reaching almost to
the surface of the soil, was entered upon.
At the right a wide door lad into a large
chapel. The walls were covered with
rudely scratched names and inscriptions,
some m Greek and some in Latin. De
Rossi, whose eyes were practiced in the
work, undertook to decipher these often
obscure scribblings. They were for the
most part the inscriptions of the pilgrims
who had visited these places, and their
great number gave proof that this was a
most important portion of the cemetery.
The majority of these were simply names,
or names nccompanied with short expres
sions of piety. Many, for instance, were
in such form as this,—Keep Elaphis in
remembrance." Many were expressions_
of devotion, written by the pilgrims for
the sake of those who were dear to them,
an— Vivat in Dotni ,, o, "May he live in
the Lord"; Pri[ite] of limy:ulna cum suis
bens naviget, "Seek that Vercundus with
his companions may voyage prosperously "
The character of the writing, the names
and the style, indicate that these inscrip
tions belong to the third and fourth centu
ries. Among these writings on the wall
were one or two which confirmed De Ron.
si in the opinion that this must be sepul
chre in which the greater number of the
popes of the third century had been bur
ied. Carefully preserving all the mass of
ruhbivh which was taken from the cham
ber, he set himself to its examination, pick
ing nut from it all the bits nr fragments of
marble, upon many of which letters or por
tions of letters were cut. Most of them
weLp of that elaborate character which is
well known to all readers of the Inscrip
tions from the catncornbs ns that of Pope
Damnsus—for this Pope had devoted him
self to putting up new inscriptions over
celebrated graves and hail used a peculiar
and sharply cut letter, easy to be distin
guished. It was known that he had put
new inscriptions over the tenths of the
popes buried in the cemetery of St. Callix
tus. After most patient examination, De
Rossi secceded in finding and putting to
gether the inscriptions of four of these ear
ly popes, and, with Cuvier-like sagacity,
he reconstructed, nut of a hundred and
twelve ssparate, minute, and scattered pie
ces, the metrical inscription in which Da
masus expressed his desire to be buried
with them, but his fear of vexing their sa
cred ashes.
There could no longer be any doubt ;
this was the Chapel of the Popes, and that
of St. Cecilia must be near by. Proceed
ing with the excavations, a door leading in
to a neighboring crypt was r pened. The
crypt was filled with earth and dedrix,
which appeared to have fallen into it thro'
a lutuirrare, now choked up with the growth
and accumulated growth of centuries. In
order to remove the mass of, earth with the
least risk of injury to the walls of the
chamber, it was determined to take it out
through the I uminare from above. As the
work advanced, there were discovered on
the wall of the luminare itself paintings of
the figures of three men, with a narr.e in
scribed at the side of each—Polioainus,
Sebestianus, and Cyrinus. These names
inspired fresh zeal, for they were those of
saints who were mentioned in ouo or more
of the Itineraries as having been bnried in
the same chapel with St. Cecilia. As the
chapel was cleared, a large arcosoliutn was
found, and near it a painting of a youthful
woman, riohly attired ; adorned w!th neck
laces and bracelets, and th• dress altageth
er such as might befit a bride. Below on
the same well, was the figure of a pope in
his robes, with the name I, Scr. Urhontis"
painted at the side ; and close to this fig
ure, a large head of the Saviour. of the
Byzantine type, with a glory in the form
of a Greek cross. The character of the
paintings showed that they were of com
paratively late date, probably not earlier
than the sixth century. end obviously exe
cuted at a time when the chapel was fre
quented by worshippers, and before the
traditional knowledge of the exact site of
St. Cecilia's sepulchre had been lost.
The discovery made by Paschal after !
the place had been deserted wits thus re
hy De Rossi after a second. longer,
and 'more obscure period of oblivion. The
divine vision which had led the ancien t
Pope, according to his own accou t, to the
right spot, was now replaced by scientific
investigation. 'rho statements of inspire
tion were confirmed, as in se many more I
conspicuous instances, by the discoveriesof
science. Cecilia had lain so near the
popes that she might. as she had saidt o
Pasbhal, have spoken to him when he xis
in their chapel, os ad os, •imouth to mouth.
But the questions naturally arose, Why
was it that in Paschal's time, before this
chapel was encumbered with earth, it had
been so difficult to find her grave 1 and,
IVhy had not the Lombards, who had
sought for her sacred body, succeeded in
finding it 1 De Rossi was able to tarnish
the solution, In several instances he had
found walls carefully built up in front ul
tombs to conceal them. It wits plain that
this must have been' done with some deli
nice purpose ; and it seems altogether like
ly that it was to hide these tombs from
sacreligious invaders. The walls had been
built when the faithful were forced by the
presence of their enemies to desert the
catacombs and leave them Unprotec ed. It
was a striking illustration of the eerier,
tion in which these holy places hail been
held. Upon examination of the floor in
• front of the arcosolium of this of this cha
pel, traces of the foundation of a wall
were discovered and thus the Lombard
failure and Paschal's difficulty were ex..
So ends the story of St. Cecilitivid her
tomb. Within her church are the remains
of the bath chamber in which she suffered
death. The mosaics of the apse film the
arch of triumph tell of the first finding of
her body; Maderrio's statue recalls the fact
of its second discovery long ; sod
now this newly opened, long forgotten
chapel shows where her precious body
was first laid away in peace, brine, the le
gend of her faithful death into clearer r,-
intentirnrice, and concludes the ancient
story with dramatic, and perfect complete
"The Lord discovered', deep thing. , ou.
of darknoss, and bringeth out to light the
shadow of death."
(To be continued.)
Our good neighbors the French or rath
er the philosophers amen them have ns
aerted that the peifection of man and ape
cies &mends upon attention to diet and di
gas ion ; and, in a material point of view,
they are not for wrong; and. indeed, in a
non-material point of view, it may be said
that the spirit, without judgement. is very
likely to he exposed to indigestion; and
perhaps ignorance complete is be prefer
red to an ill-digested erudition. With di
et and pa'ience Walpole thought all clis,
ease of man might be easily cured. Mon
tesqiuu, on the other hand, held that health
purchased by rigorously watching over
- diet, was but a tedious disease. Bill Wel
pole was nearly correct while Montesqieu
was not very far distant from the truth.—
Dieting, like other thing. must be under
taken on common sense principles ; for,
though there be multitudes of and people
in the world, society generally is not to be
put upon the regime of Bedlam.
We live, not by what we eat, but by
what we digest; and what one man may
digest another would die of attempting.—
Rules on this subject are almost useless.
Each innn may soon learn the powers of
his stomach, in health or dis .ase, in this
r espect and this ascertained, he has no
more business to bring on indigestion
titan he has to get intoxicated or, to fall in•
to debt. He who offends on these points,
deserves to forfeit stomach, head, and his
electoral franchise !
Generally speaking, fat and spices re
sist the digestive power; end too much
nutritious food is the next evil to too little.
Good cookery, by developing flavor, in
creases the nutritiousness of food. which
bad cookery would perhaps render indi•
gestible. Hence a cook rises to the digni
ty of 'artist.' He may rank with the
chemists if not with the physicians.
Animal food, of mild quality, is more

digestible than vegetable and fresh meats
are preferable to salted. In the latter,
the salt is a different composition from that
which is taken at meals, and which is in.
dispensnble to health. Fish fills rather
than feeds hut there are no exceptions
to this. Vegetables are accounted as do
ing little to maintain stamina, but there
have been races and classes of men who
been born heroes upon brend. fruit and ye.
getohles. The poor cannot live upon cur
ry, it is true ; but in England, with less
drink and more vegetable food, they would
be an improved race. Not that thoy could
live like a Lozaroni, on 11-Incroni and open
air. Layard says the Bedouin owes his
health and strength to his spore diet
But even a Bedouin swallows lumps of
butter till - he becomes bilhous, and were
he to live to England instead of the des
ert, he would not keep up his strength by
living on dishes which supported him in

I will give you my recipe for making
brown bread, which I have adopted of
late and find it very good. Take two
quarts of corn meal, two do. of shorts, one
tablespoonful ()isn't, one tea cup of mo•
lasses. Stew a squash or a good pump
kin, in water sufficient to wet this mass;
pour it on boiling hot. When cool en
ough, add a pint of yeast and two quarts
of wheat flour, and this will make four
loaves. When light, bake three hours.
