WINDS OF THE DESERT.
Mr. Buckiugham, in one of his late le
fares, gave some particulars respecling the
winds of Egypt, which are two in 'number.
TI'he Eastern wind,known by various name.

North, blows steadlily for ten mnoths du

the current of air to ventilate the buildings;
and around these wind-catchers, the in.
sates grouip, as in other countries, by the
fire-side. A nother benefit conferred by the
witnd on their navigation,seems almost prov

Nile, borne only by' the force of the curreni
unaided by 1hail or oar, but to ascend the

fire furnace suddenly opened, producing
lassitude ; and soon increasing in violence,
it raises the soft sand in clouds, penetrating
the eyes, nose and mouth, and Insinuating
itself beneath the garments. The camels
are halted by the sound of a bugle, the
note of a flute, or some other well known
signal, and arranged in lines of a hundred
or a thousand each, with their backs turned
to the quarter whence the Sinoon is expect
ed; and beneath the shelter thus aflorded,
the men prostrate themselves upon the
ground. The drifting sand, opposed in its
course, rises in a little while to the camel's
backs, and begins to pour down on the other
side. Now must they again bestir thea
selves, if they would not be buried where
they lie. Although the atmosphere is thick
with'yellow *and, producing darkness so
total, that one cannot see an external hand

position is to be taken, a new line of camels
formed, and the same operation. gone thro'

and are buried beneath the sand. The
groans of women and children, and blended

scene awful beyond description. One of

was exposed, lasted -eightein hours; and
