The G~o irth of Jerusalemn. The Nuesfte. Nachrkite astt d M rge Jo la,? . a German newspaper puiblished in Palestine, states thatthe city of Jerusalem is growing n size and population at a remarkable rate. Its growth is all the more surprioing because neither its situation nor its trade are favourable to a rapid increaso; it lies amongst a not very fertile group of mountains; it has next to no commerce, and it has no manufactures. Never theless, new buildings are i dvily ; churches, gardens, and institutes of various kinds. ar filling up the formerly deso late neighbourhood to the distance of half-an.hour's walk beyond the old limits of the city.. The Jews are to the front as builders. Their houses spring out of the ground like mushrooms-uniform, ugly, one storied, plentifully supplied. with windows, but with no. manner of adornment. The Rothe childs have completed a new hospital. Close beside it there is a new Abyssinimn church The Russians are also great builders; they have erecte...
