The Massacres in lchanoa..
•B mtwr, July 1.
Until last, evening I had hopes that, this'
mail'would take home more.eheefing ;pews'
respecting this unhappy province. , ,Unfor
tunately our prospddts . get darker every
day, for each hour brings -either news of
fresh atrocities committed' by the Druses,
or more decided proof -that the acts of the,
the latter are connived at: by the . Turkish
Government. It is now ascertained; and a.
been ,
nominal list of' them has' lode, that,
up to last night the Druses have burnt and ;
pillaged no less than one hundred and fifty
one Christian villages since the 29th: of'
3flay last, while no fess than from seventy
five thousand to eighty thousand Christian
inhabitants of Lebanon--many of whom
were a month ago wealthy mew, others in .
quite easy circumstances, and all Strangers
to anything like poverty! -Au. .want—are
homeless beggars, depending
. on actual,
charity for their' daily bread. OieioCiiiid
above the number of Christians shot in,ac
tual warfare, between seven and eight
thousand have -been butchered-r-hacked to
death would be 'the fitter term—as ' no
butcher ever used in hi's 'Calling, half tha
cruelty 'of these blood-thirsty initereants--
in 'old blood by the Druses. -And, besides
this, more than five thousand:widdWs, who,
until this Druse campaign, -ere happy
wives and mothers, hive lost their . hasbands,
brothers, fathers, and", ill 'Male relatiyes,
even to the male infants at the, breast; 'and
sixteen hundred childien are now orphans:
All these figures have been very carefiillY
compared with others, and weighed in the
balance of English (local) opinion, before
being given as facts. After conversing,
comparing and digesting ,all. I heai., after
bringing my own four years' experience in
SYria, to bear Upon the subject, I. am bound
to say that r have considerably understated
the case, , Moreover, fifty millions sterling
would not pay for the towns, villages, ,ham,
lets and silk factories destroyed throughout
the .mountaitt—all the property`. of ' . the
Chriatians. There is, besides, a fearinlly
long list of convents, churches and nuee,
ries belonging to the same people r all of'
which, have been plundered, and, then de r
stroyed by the Druees. 'ln short what
commenced as a civil war, between the two
sects can no longer be called by that, name.
For the last twenty clays it has been
inothing less than a wholesale massacre of
Christians by the Doses, and a wanton
-destruction of' all property belonging to
, the former by.' the latter. To give you
some idea what, these Druses are, I will
enumerate a few instinces of their fright,
ful barbarity, - , all-',,,0f Which I have heard
from the tin un
fortate snerers themselves,
, ff hemsel l
now refugees- from Lebanon. One poor
woman—l. knew. both -her husband and
herself well at, Deir-el-Kariiar,i where they
were wealthy peOple—toid me that when
the Druses attacked the, town the second
time (I should mention that it surrendered,
- and all the inhabitants. had given up their
arms some twenty-four days previously to
the Doses, and had been promised protec
tion by their sheiks,) her husband was hacked
to pieces before her eyes by the large knives
°Utile Druses, who then declared that they
must kill all male children in the house.
The mother" ried to hide her two sons, one
fifteen, and=the other nine years old,, The
'Bruges, however, found them out,'aiid as
she begged and prayed for their lives, and
endeavored to cover thew in Ir„corner with
her person, but the Druses hacked at the
lads over her -shoulder, and 'gashed. their
until they both dropedd down apparently
lifeless. The Drugeethen - made off, and
the woman thinkingrliet two sons dead re
mained in a sort of stivinvfor two hours=
Ho kin: as she can caleiTate. 'At list she
wag,.roused by hearing the eldest 44 - call
her in a faint voice, trying to assure her
that I.he was not yet dead. On this -she
felt the body of the youngest boy, and,
found .MS heart beating. She got some
water,'and after giving it to both het chil
dren—so far as she could get them to drink
it—started ipto the town,to see whether she
could proeurb 4 Assistante to - get her and her
boys away. She got as far as the Seraglio,
or Governmenchoase, but there she found
that some five hundred Christians, who
had taken refuge, were beineut to pieces
by the Druses, Who 'had g
'been invited to
enter the precincts of 'the building by' the
Turkish soldiers of the garrison, 'these lat
ter 'helping in the buteheryr, And ,being so
far'*OrSe than the Drustittluit - the'y abused
in the most infamous maniier'allthe women.
Seeing' no help could be obtained here,
the poor woman' turned to' when she
came aoroie an old'l/ruse, former
ly been a farm. servant of her husband's.
After a great deal of entreaty on her part
the man consented to protect hietiriii her
children down to the sea coast, - ,a,VeAt four
hours' journey, on cendition of receiving
an order on her brother, a wealth - y' t* hi
Beirout, for 10,000 piastres. To - this Slfe
agreed and they returned together to her
house. She had not been . abienti more
than an hour, but she found 'her' two chil
dren cut into pieces, joint; by joint ; "limb
and trunk severed," (to use - herWordS) " aa
butchers cut up sheep "—heads, leg; arms
and bodies being hacked up into 'a` shape
less mass of bloody' flesh and.reeking bones.
• Sente other poor wmanii• then joined her,
and together they made their way to a mul
berry plantation outside the tOWn,. - where
they passed the night. At daybreak they
were discovered - by a party of Druses, who,
after stripping theM to find whether they
had any money on.their person; and taking.
away what little they possessed, told them
they might go where they liked. Four - of
the poor creatures had babes, all under 4
year old. Of these infants two were girls
and two were boys; the former they did
not touch, but the latter they said might
grow up to be men and bear arms against
the Druses, they therefore took the poor
little creatures, and before their mothers''
eyes tore them up the middle and limb by
limb—" exactly,' to use the poor woman's
own expression, "as you tear up - a fowl
that is to he cooked with pillau.". ,Remem- 1
ber, all this was done, not in the heat of
fighting, but deliberately in cold blood.
And I have heard of eleven other exactly
similar eases of children destruction by the
Proses, in nine of which 1 implicitly be
lieve, havinc , every reason so.
Deir-el-Lamar contained, a.month 'ago, a
population of eight thousand souls, of
which about four thousand idie 'men' and
lads, three thousand five hundred women
and girls, and five hundred -children under
ten years old. Of•the men.not,more than
one hundred and fifty. haVe escaped; of the
Women and girls about two thousand, haVe
reached Beirout; and of the, young
dren less than two hundred are 'alive.
Don't forget, too that this fiendish massacre
'was perpetrated upon a population
twenty-four days preViously had surrender
ed to the Druses, had been promiaed pro
tection by them, and were, diSarmed previ
ously to the murder.

Mr. Samuel Sharpe, author of the "Histo
ry of , Egypt," " Historical Notes 011 the
Bible," &c., has just published the results
of a'critical examination of the Septuagint
Version of the Old Testament.. They lead
him to the conclusion that, instead of being
a faithful version of the Hebrew text, the
various discrepancies on chronology and
other points, which many have endeavored
in vain to reconcile with the original, arose
not from accident, or the corruptions of
transcribers, hut from a systematic attempt
to accommodate the translation to later Al
exandrian and Egyptian philosophizing
doctrines and
for instance, in the
case where the literal Hebrew, " He maketh
the winds his messenger, and the lightning
his servant," is rendered by the mystical
assertion, "He maketh his angels into spir
its, and his servants into a flame of fire."
The date of the version is placed at a lower
period than that currently received, by Mr.
Sharpe, while its value in Biblical criticism,
when used understandingly, is properly ac

Not far from Westminster Hall is a beauti
ful column or monument, erected at the
charge of the city, to perpetuate the ;recol
lection of that great and terrible event:
The column is of the Dorie,order, two laun. ,
dreil and two; feet in hight, fashioned like an
urn, With a flame issuing from it, with a,
stair case in the middle to ascend to' the
balcony, which is about thirty feet short of
the top. This monument was begun by
Sir Christopher Wren, in 1671, and,finish
ed by him' in, 1677.- On the base of the.
monument next the street, the destruction
of the city, and the relief given to, the suf
ferers by 'Charles 11. and. his brother, are
emblematically, represented in - bas relief.
The North and. South sides of the base have
each a Latin.inscription, the one describing
its dreadful desOlation, and the other its
splendid resurrection. The former transla
ted reads thus :
"In the year of Christ, 1666, Septem
ber 2d, Eastward from hence, at the 'dis
tance of 'two hundred .and two feet, the
height of this column a terrible fire broke
out at midnight; which, driven by a high
wind; not only -iva.sted the: adjacent parts,
but also very remote places, with incredible
crackino- and fur3r. It 'consumed`` eighty
nine chUrches, the city gates;. Guildhall,
many public structures, hospitals,' schools,
libraries, a vast number of stately edifices,
thirteen thousand &jelling houses, and four
hundred entire . streets ! Of 'the twenty-six
wards, of Which the city was then compos
ed, it utterly destroyed fifteen, Wand . left
eight others shattered and balf burnt.
"The ruins of'the burnt district comprised
four hundred and thirty-six acres, from the
Tower 'by the. Th:itmes side to the Temple
chUrch, and from the North-east along the
wall, to Holborn bridge. To the estates
and fOrtune.s Of the citizens the devouring
enemy was merciless, but to their lives
very favorable, that it might, in all things,
resemble the last conflagration of the world.
; The destruction was sudden, for in a short
space of time the city was seen most flour
ishing, and reduced 'to nothing. The fire
raged three entire days an'd three entire
nights, when, having baffled all human
counsels. and endeavors, it stopped of its
own accord—in the opinion of all, as it
were by 'a command from God, and it was
so on every side extinguished."
If you deem the above reminiscence of
the lamest fire, no doubt ever witnessed on
this globe, and which has been •eommemo
rated, at an expense of X13;000, by a
monument, worthy ',of re-publication, it is
