A startling discovery, confirmatory ol
the truth <>f the book of Jonah, has been
made bv Mr. Layard. In excavating the
citvof Nineveh, lie discovered the mime
of Jonah insciihed upon the ruins. That
prophet, ;is our readers know, was sent
to announce to the people of Nmeveh the
dostinotion of the city, llis eloquence
converted many of them, and ''God lepented
him" of the doom //e had pronounced,
and spared the oily for that
time, donah then heoanu; the prophet
of Nineveh, and was reverenced hv the
inhohi.tanis, A> was the Oiientnl custom,
they doubtless inscribed his name in con
|8;)ienous places on ihe walls of ilic pubic
edifices, and the inscriptions engraved
by ^Issyrian linnds, a thousfir.d years I < fore
the Christian era, have been found
by M\. Layard. This is one of the most
extraordinary demonstrations of the accuracy
of biblical histoiy we have ever
vis yet wc have only seen the beginning
of the end. The city of Nineveh
has scarcely yet been entered; and wlien
the excavations shall have been comp'.e

illustrations of the prophecies that
will strike the; world with awe and Wonder.
