THE HOLY LAND BY HARRIET MARTINEA17. Part III.—Jerusalem.— The Temple. My room opened upon a little terrace,—the flat roof of a lower apartment in our inn at Jerusalem, and from this little terrace I was never tired of gazing. A considerable portion of the city was spread out below me; not with its streets laid open to view, as it would be in one of our cities; but presenting a collection ot flat roofs, with small white cupolas rising from them, and the minarets of the mosque springing, tall and light as the pop. lar from the long grass of the meadow. The narrow, winding lanes, which arc the streets of eastern cities, arc scarcely traceable from a height; but there was one visible from our terrace,—with its rough pavement of large stones, the high housewalls on each side, and the arch thrown over it, which is so familiar to all who have seen the pictures of Jerusalem. The street is called Via Dulprosa, the Mournful way, from its being supposed to be the way by which Jesus we...

LITTELL'S LIVING AGE. A green horn, fresh caught, who came to the city to look at the glorious Fourth, chanced to be pees, ing towards the Common, when his attention was arrested by the above cabalistic syllables. Upon one side of Broorafield street he saw the big sign* upon the other the word 'Museum.' "Wai," said he to himself, "I'vo hcarn tell o' them museum, but nlirin' age big or little, must be one o' them curiosities we lead about!" lie stepped quietly across the street, and wiping hia face, approached one ol the windows, in which were displayed several loose copies of the work.— He read upon the covers, "Littcll's Living Age," and upon a card, "Popular Magazine—only one of its kind in I lie country," &.C. "Magazine! Wai, that beats thunder all leu smash! I've hcarn about prouder magazines, an 1 all that.

Anecdote ok Stephen Girahd.—The folluwing capital anecdote, illustrative of the peculiarities of the lute Stephen Girard, Philadelphia, is from the New Bedford Bulletin. We have never seen it published before. "Mr. G. had a fuvoritc clerk, one who crer pleased him, and who, at the age of SI years, expected Mr. G. to say something to him in regard to his future prospects and perhaps lend him a helping hand in starting him in the world. But Mr. O. said nothing, carefully avoiding the subject of hia escape from minority. At length, after the elapse of some weeks, the clerk mustered courage enough to address Mr. G. upon the subject." " I suppose. Sir," said the clerk," I jm now free : and I thought I could say something lo you as to my future course. What do you think I had better do?" " Yes, I know you are free," said Mr. G., "and my advice to you is that you go and learn tho cooper's trade." This announcement well nigh threw the clerk off the track, but rccuvcrcd his equilibrium, he...

From the Spanish of Juan Ruiz tie Hita PRAISE OP LITTLE WOMEN, In a Illle precious stone' what splendor meets the eyes! In a little lump of sngar, how much or sweetness lies! So in a little woman love grows and multiplies: You rscollect the proverb says—a worn* uxtothe wise. A pepper corn is very small, but seasons every dinner More tiian nil other condiments, although 'tis sprinkled thinner; Just so a Itulc woman is, if love will let you win her. There's not n joy in all the world you w ill not find within her-And as within the little rose you find the richest dyes. And in a little grain of gold much price and value lieB, As from a little balsam much odor dolh arise. So in a litllc woman there's a taste of parndlse; The sky lark and the nightingale, though small and light of wing, Vet warble sweeter in the grove than all the birds that sing; And so a little woman, though a very little thing. Is sweeter far than sugar, and flowers that bloom in Spring.

The body must originally hate been petrified in lime, but of this tberc remains now only the outside incrustation, which will crumble off. What was the man, is now iron. By some natural process, tho iron must havo grown out of the lime, and here ia a theme for Geologists! How did this change take place T If we arc right, and the facts seem to leavo no room for doubt, this Iron Man would afford one of the most beautiful subjects for a Geological Lecture. The iron ore, in which it is found is called toe calcareous formajion. Tho process of its formation would be an instructive study.—Cincinnati Chronicle. . _ _ ^ ^ ^ .^L. . ¦ * — — — .—- -^—^^^
