THE WALL OF JERUSALEM.
A SLCTION" Or Tlti: SHCOXD STltUCTUKE
Jerusalem contnius many buried
sectets. In some places sixty,
seventy, and even ns much (13 100
feet of rubbish have been accumu
lated over what was at a foimcr
period the surface of the ground.
The first gicat beginning of tills
heaping up of the fragments of lie
stiuction may be dated at the time
when Nebuchadnezzar took Jeru
salem and carried off thu inhabit
ants to "the rivers of Babylon." At
that time Nebu.a Adan, who com
manded the Chaldeans, "burned the
House of the House of the Lord,"
and it is also stated that "tho Chal
deans binned the King's House and
the houses of the people with fire,
and brake down the walls of Jeru
salem." This must have been a
very complete demolition, and the
result ncccssaiily produced a very
large arclueological deposit. The
unfortunate city has undergone
many similar operations since that
time, and on each occasion a new
stratum of remains lias been laid
down. Let any one, however little
ho may have read on thu subject,
throw his thoughts back on such n
history, nnd he will easily conceive
what may be hid under the streets
of modem Jerusalem. It is Sir
Chailes Warren, the present First
Commissioner of Police, who, as
Captain Warren, acted for the
Palestine Exploration Fund, that wc
one our llrst glimpses of "Under
ground Jeiusalcm." lie told us in
exact figures of the great depth of
rubbish wliich had gathcicd in the
valleys, and which, in spite of the
filling up, aic still -isiblc in the
ancient city. The work of .Sir 0.
Waircn clcaicd up some points that
were formerly doubtful, but much
remains obscure. There are many
problems lcgarding the old topo
graphy which cannot bo solved till
further excavations are made. Pro
minent among the points requiting
light to be thrown on tlicm are the
exact positions of tho Temple and
the Holy Scpulchcr. The questions
have not only a historical and
archaeological interest, but the
whole Clnistian woild has natuialiy
a deep anxiety to know the exact
truth regarding them. At present
no excavations can be carried on ;
the Porte lefuscs all applications
for permission to explore wheie dig
ging might at present be done, and
it is only when the foundations of a
house requhc the clearing away of
the ground that chance brings some
thing to light.
Such a chance has lately taken
place. A new hotel had to be built
near the Jaffa gate this was the
Mediterranean Hotel, which, as
visitors to Jeiusalcm will remember,
formerly stood not far within the
Damascus gate. The spot where
this took place may be dcsciibed in
the words of the account which has
come home it is "at the head of
David street," not named directly
from the Royal Psalmist," but from
the Tower of David, which stands at
the end of it. Here, in clearing out
the foundations, pjd, walls, canals
and cisterns were laid bare ; but the
most important discovery was come
to at a depth of fifteen feet. Here
were found the remains of an old
wall, which is supposed to have
been one of the ancient city walls,
and almost all tho authoiities arc
agreed that it is the "second wall"
of Josephus which has been so long
sought for. About thirty yards of
this wall have been uncovered. Two
courses, and in places three courses,
of the stones remain in position.
These stones are large and similar
to thoso in the Tower of David.
The line of the wall begins directly
opposite the tower, and runs to the
north, trending slightly to the west.
So far it follows a line parallel to
the present wall running from the
Jaffa gate to' tho northwest corner
of tho city. Theinteiest attaching
to this wall is peculiar, A great
many people beliove that tho Holy
Scpulchcr does not stand on Gol
gotha, nor over the now scpulchcr,
"wlicicin was never man laid,"
which had been excavated in the
garden of Joseph of Arimathca.
Dr. Robinson was not the first to
express doubts on this subject, but
he has dealt largely on it in his work
on Jeiubalcm; Captain Condor pre
fprs for Golgotha, or Calvary, the
round mound, "formed like a skull"
outside of tho Damascus gato.
General Gordon, who lived some
months in Jerusalem immediately
befoio going to Khartoum, and de
voted his time exclusively to the
study of tho subject, also accepted
the knob of rock at the Damascus
gato as the most probable position.
The connection existing between tho
Iloly Sepulchor and tho second wall
comes nboit in this way: Tho ciuci
llxion took place ''without tho gate."
Now, tho second wall is supposed to
bo as old as the tune of Heekmh,
and its existence at the lime of tho
Savior's sojouin on eaith is not
doubted. The Holy Scpulchcr is at
present in tho vcrry middlo of tho
city. The city may have grown
101111(1 it in eighteen centuries, but
if this second wall could bo tiaced
so as to inclose tho spot within its
circuit its specialty exalted banctity
would bo at onco destioyed. The
most sacred shrine of the Christian
Church would cease to exist; tho
Crusades wpijjd bo looked upon as a
delusion) as only a fight iot an
empty nutshell. This1 will show tho
interest which attaches to tho few
feet of ancient masoniy wliich hos
been discoveicd at tho head of
"David street," in Jeiusalcm. Tho
thirty yards of wall is not enough to
decide tho point; it would require
perhaps to be traced 100 yards fur
ther to know whether it went off to
the west, and included the Holy
Scpulchcr, or turns to the cast, so
as to leave the shrine "without tho
gato." A continued cxploiatlon is
impossible, as tho space is all built
over to the north. Under theso
houses lies tho seciet which has such
intcicst and importance. There for
the present it must remain, and we
must wait till the time conies when
some other house has to bo rebuilt,
and the digging of tho foundations
may give us another glimpse of this
significant wall. London News.
THE MEANING OF BONANZA.
In an English magazine an at
tempt is made to give aseiicsof
Americanisms, that is to say, words
coined or invented in Amciica.
Under the word Bonanza the delini
tion is given: "Spanish, a big
scheme by which, honestly or other
wise, much money is made." Upon
this a critic pounces and says that
bonanza means "good fortune or
good luck." Bonanza is, indeed,
a Spanish word, and very naturally
came into use in California or Ne
vada. But it does not mean "a big
scheme" or "good luck." It is a
nautical a sea-going word, and
means fair w eathcr at sea. If tho
reader will refer to St. Mathew, viii :
2G, he will read that, after the Loul
rebuked the wind and the sea,
"theic WUs a great calm." And if
lofeiencc is next had to the Spanish
vcision of the New Testament he
will lind the phrase there given,
"una grandc bonanza." It is easy
to understand how the woul came
into figurative use as meaning a
happy, calm and good hope after a
weary search. Philadelphia Led-
Great Excitement in Wales
about a Marvellous Cure.
Living Six Years Without
Going to Bed.
Mil. -Currou: While spending a fen
days at tho pleasant seaside iowi of
Abcrystwlth, Cardiganshiie, Wales, I
heard related what seemed to mo either
a fabulous story or a marvellous cure.
.The story was thai a poor sutlcrcr who
had not been able to liudoun in bed foi
sts long years, given up to die by .ill the
Doctors, had been speedily cured by
some Patent Medicine. It was related
with tho more implicit confidence from
the circumstance, as was said, that the
Vicar of Llauryslyd was familiar with
the facts, and could vouch for the trnfli
of tho report.
Having a little curiosity to know how
such stories grow in travelling, I took
tho liberty while at the village of Ll.m.
rystyd to call upon the Vicar, the Kev.
T. Evans, and to enquire about this
wonderful cure. Though a total stran
ger to him, both he and his wife most
irraciously entertained mo in a half
hour's conversation, principally touching
the case of Mr. Pugh, in which they
seemed to take a dcop and sympathetic
interest, having been familiar with his
Bufferings, and now rejoiced in what
seemed to them a most remarkable cure.
The Vicar remarked that lie presumed
his name had been connected with the
report from his having mentioned the
case to Mi. John Thomab, a chemist ot
Llanoii. He said Mr. Pugh was former
ly a resident of their pailsli, but was now
living in the parish of Llauddeiuol,
He sttongly vouched Mr. Wm. Pugh's
character as a lespectuble fanner and
woithy of credit. I loft ihu venerable
Vicar with a livelier souse ol the happy
relation of a pastor and people, feeling
that he was one who truly sympathised
with nil who arc afflicted in mind, body,
On my return to Abcrystwlth, I was
impressed with a desire to see Mr.Punh,
whoso reputation stood so high. His
farm is culled Pnncoin-Mawr, siguifying
"abovo the dingle," bituatcd near the
summit of a smooth round hill, over
looking a beautiful volley in which is
situated the lovely ivymautlcd Church
of Llauddeiuol. I found Mr. Pugh,
apparently about 40ycarsold,'of medium
height, rather slight, wiihu pleasant ami
intelligent face. I told him I had heard
of his great affliction and of his lemark
able and almost miraculous relief, and
that I had come to learn trom his own
lips, what there was of tiulh in the re
ports. Mr. Pugh remarked ihat his neigh,
liors had taken u kindly unci symp
athetic interest In Ids caso lor many
years, but of late their interest had been
greatly awakened by a happy change in
his condition, Whutyou lejioitas hav.
