PHARAOH'S HOUSE IN TAHPAHHES.
An interesting account of a dis
covery made by the agent of the
Egyptian Exploration Fund appears
in the London Times of 18. Mr.
Flinders Petrie has found the silo of
the palace in Egypt to which
Jeremiah, accompanied by the two
I princesses, daughters of .cdekian,
was Drought. 10 his astonishment
he found, on asking his Arab guides
the name of the ruins, that the place
was called to this day "El Ksisr el
Hint el Yahudi the Castle of the
Jew's Daughter." Wc give two ex
tracts, fairly representing the im
portance of this discovery:
A very curious and interesting dis
covery has been made in tho lone
liest and dreariest comer of the
North-eastern Delta. In a land
where previous explorers have found
only temples and tombs the monu
ments of tin extinct faith, and tho
graves of a dead nation Mr.
Flinders Petrie has lighted upon the
ruins of a royal palace. Not a
palace of the dubious prc-historio
Byzantine sort, but a genuine anil
hiirhlv respectable structure, -with an
unblemished pedigree, and a definite"
placo in the history of four great
nations. In a word, the fortunate
Under of Naukratis has for the last
six or eight weeks been working upon
a large mound, or group of mounds,
called Tell Defenneh, which Egypl
alogists and historians have long
indentified with the "Pelusiac
Daphint;" of the Greek writers and
the 'Tahpanhes'' of the Bible.
Here he has discovered the ruins of
that very palace to which, as record
ed in the Book of the Prophet
Jeremiah (chapter xliii.), Johanan,
the son of Karcah, followed by "all
tho captains of the forces" and "the
remnant of Judah, " brought the
fugitive daughters of Zcdckiali, then
a dethroned and niultilatcd captive
in Babylon. This flight of the He
brew princesses took place about
B. C. 585, during the reign of Uaab
Ka (2Gtb Egyptian dynasty) whom
the Hebrews called Hoplira, and the
Greeks Aprics. The Pharaoh re
ceived them with hospitality. To
the mass of Jewish immigrants ho
granted tracts of laud extending
from Tabpanhes to Bubastis, while
to tho daughters of Zcdckiali, his
former ally, he assigned this royal
residence, which the Bible calls
"Pharaoh's house in Tahpanhes."
Aprlos (Ilophra) brings ustoB. C.
591 570, and to the time of the flight
of the daughters of Zedekiah. It
may be that the Egyptian monarch
added on some of the later external
chambers of the "Ksar" for tho
accommodation of their suite, for
"all tho captains of tho forces," all
the nobles, and priests, and mer
chants of Judoa were among the im
migrant multitude. With them also,
sorely against his will and judgment,
came the Prophet Jeremiah, whoso
lirst act on arriving at Tnlipahrms
was to foretell the pursuit of the
"Then came the word of the Lord
unto Jeremiah in Tahpanhes, saying,
Take great stones in thine hand, and
hide them in mortar in the brickwork
which is at the entry of Pharaoh's
house in Tahpanhes, in the sight of
tho men of Judah ; ant saj unto
them, Thus saith the Lord ot Hosts,
the God of Israel: Behold I will
send and take Nebuchadnezzar, the
King of Babylon, My" servant, and
will set his throne upon these stones
that I have hid ; and ho shall spread
his royal pavilion over them. And
he shall come, and shall smite the
land of Egypt ; such as are for death
shall bo given to death, and suoh as
arc for captivity to captivity, and
such as are for the sword to the
sword" (Jer. xliii., 8, 9, 10, 11).
We quote the Revised Version,
which has an important alternative
reading in the margin, to which we
will presently refer. In the mean
time, here is a verbatim extract from
a page of Mr. Petrio's journal, writ
ten early in April :
"Outside the buildings of the
Ksar, I find by repeated trenchings
mi area of continuous brickwork
resting on sand, about 100 feet by
GO leet, facing the entrance to tho
later buildings at the cast corner.
The roadway ran up a recess between
tlio buildiiujs and this platform. The
platform lias no traces of chambers,
and seems to bo nil opun-air place
for outdoor purposes, such as load
ing goods, arranging things, &c. ;
Jlifet such a place as is needed for
business, and such as even poor
villagers make before their houses,
levelling a Binootli, hard bed of mud,
which they keep clean swept, J js
curious how exactly this answers to
the brick area 'at the entry of
Pharaoh's house in Tahpanhes,' and
it would bo exactly tho place where
Nebuchadnezzar would 'spread his
royal pavilion.' Tho rains havo
washed away this area and denuded
the surface, so that, although it is
two or three feet thick near tho
palace, it is reduced in greater part
to a few inches, and is altogether
gono at tho north-west corner."
Now, tho Arabic naino for a plat
form of this kind is "Balat," and
that wo have in this "Balat" tho
brickwork referred to in the Bible is
scarcely to bo doubted by tho most
determined sceptic. And it is to bo
noted that in tho nllorntitivo reading
above mentioned " tho brickwork
which s nt tho entry of X'Jiaraoh's
house" is rendered as "the pave
ment or square." -
To imicniify Jeremiah's stones
(unless he had first inscribed them,
which is unlikely) would of course
bo impossible. Yet Mr. Petrie has
looked for llieni diligently, and
turned up the brickwork in every
part. Some unhewn stones have in
deed been dug out from below the
surface, and it is open to enthusiasts
to jdentify thcni or not, as tlioy
think ill ; but about the "Balat" it
is scarcely possible that there should
be a difference of opinion. Did
Nebuchadnezzar really come to
Tahpahcs and spread his royal pavil
ion on that very spot, and was
Jeremiah's prophecy fiilllllcd. Egypt
ian inscriptions say that he came,
and that Aprles defeated him. Baby
lonian incriptions state that he con
quered ; and tho truth is hard to dis
cover. At all events, there are
three cltiy cylinders of Nebuchad
nezzar in tho museum at Boulak in
scribed with tho great king's name,
titles, parentage, &c, which there
is much reason to believe were found
a few years ago at this place, and
not, as the Arab sellers stated, at
Tussun, in the isthmus. Such cylin
ders wore taken with him by
Nebuchadnezzar, in his campaigns,
for the purpose of marking the
place whero he planted his standard
and throne of victory. (See Jeremiah,

Great Excitement in Wales
about a Marvellous Cure.
laving Six Years Without
Going" to Bed.
Mn. Editor: While spending a few
days at tho pleasant seaside town of
Aberystwith, Cardiganshire, Wales, 1
heard related what seemed lo me cither
a fabulous story or a marvellous cure.
The story was that a poor sulfbrcr who
had not been ahlo to lie down in bed for
six long ycais, given up to die by all the
Doctors, had been speedily cured by
some Patent Medicine. It was lclated
with the more implicit confidence from
tlic circumstance, as was said, that the
Vicar of Llaurystyd was familiar with
tho facts, and could vouch for the truth
of the report.
Having a little curiosity to know how
such stories grow in travelling, I took
tho liberty while at the village of Llau
rystyd to call upon thCVicar, the Rev.
T. Evans, and to enquire about this
wonderful cure. Though a total stran
ger to him, both he and his wife most
graciously entertained me in a half
hour's conversation, principally touching
the ease of Mr. Pugli, in which they
seemed lo take a deep and sympathetic
interest, having been familiar with his
sufferings, and now rejoiced in what
seemed to them a most remarkable cure.
The Vicar remaikcd thathopiesuincd
his name had been connected with tho
report from his having mentioned the
case to Mr. John Thomas, a chemist of
Llanon. He said Mr. Pugh was former
ly a resident of their pailsh, but was now
living in the parish of Llauddcinol.
He strongly vouched Mr. Win. Ptigh's
character as a .respectable farmer and
worthy of credit. I left tho yeuerable
Vicar with a livelier souse of tho happy
Tclatlon of a pastor and people, feeling
that he was one who truly sympathised
with all who arc afflicted in mind, body,
On my return to Aberystwith, I was
impressed with a desire to see Mr. Puirh,
whose reputation stood so high. His
farm is called Funcom-Muwr, signifying
"abovo the dingle," bituatcd neor the
-summit of a smooth round bill, over
looking a bonutlful valley in which is
situated tho lovely ivymautlcd Church
of Llandduinol. I found Mr. Pugh,
apparently about 40 years old, of medium
height, rather slight, with a pleasant and
intelligent face. I told him I had heard
of his great affliction and of his remark
able and almost miraculous relief, and
that I had come to learn from his own
lips, what thcro was of truth in tho re
ports, . Mr. Pugh remarked that bis neigh,
bors had taken a kindly and symp
athetic interest in his case for many
years, but of late their interest bad been
greatly awakened by a happy change in
his condition. What you report as hav.
iug heard abroad, said he, is substant
ially true, with ono exception. I never
understood that my case was ever-given
up as hopeless by any Physician. I
havo been treated by several Doctors
hereabouts, as good as any in Wales, but
unfortunately no prescription of theirs
ever brought the desired lelief.
Fifteen years ago, ho said, I first he.

stomach and losh of appetite, which tho
Doctors told me was Dyspepsia. What

was followed after a time with a hoarse
ness nutl iv raw soreness of tho tin oat
which the Doctors called bronchitis,

little success. Then came shortness of
