-It is a curious fact that the late lame:
Pr?vost Paradol should have been a chiel
laborateur in a romaneo whose catastro

des Deux Mondes, and the concluding si
was the suicide of Hie hero by a pistol bulle
his being appointed French Amba3sadoi
Russia. It is an interesting psychologies
quiry whether this idea, lurking in M. P
dol\s brain, and rising into intensity at a
ment of aberration, did not occasion his
destruction. There are numerous instai
on record of homicides committed under s
lar circumstances, but fewer, we believe
suicides. We may add that the story we r
to was not acknowledged by M. Parade
was, however, traced to him by means
certain quotation from his favorite author,
cretius, in the context, and he never al
ward denied the principal authorship of
Is the World Growing Wiser !
Sixty years ago it was the universal cr
that the history of the world, like the hist
of a nation, is a record of the advance
man from the first dawn of knowledge, b
rather unsteady progression, to modern p!
' osophy and arts and sciences, and that
examination of any considerable period
time is sure to show us mankind more
?tructed and more capable at the end o
than at the beginning. Even to-day, c
other belief may be counted heretical. I
what are we to think when the antiqua
groping in the dust of five thousand ye:
ago for some rude specimens of the days
Magog and Mizraim, breaks his sbin3 agaii
an article s - per?ect that it equals, if it d(
not excel, e supreme stretch of mod?
ability ? How shall we support the theo
? if, before Noah was cold in his grave, his <
scondants ? ere adepts in construction a
in the fine arts, aud their achieveinei
were, for maguitude, such as we never :
tempt to emulate ? It is not intended
auswer these questions here. Our object
rather to recapitulate some of the thin
which one very old nation knew in eai
days. This is the subject of a paper "Abo
What the O J Egyptiaus Knew," in the A
gust number of Blackwood. Every one
us who knows anything ut all has a nret
correct implicit knowledge of Egypt, cr.
talk of the Pharaohs aud Sesostris, of ti
pyramids, the sphinx, the obelisks. Bi
when it cotne3 to measuring, or defining, tl:
antiquity, the kuowledge and the power, tl
utterance is not so prompt. It is good, thet
to talk over the thugs which have beeu e?
tablished regarding ancient Egypt and bc
character, avoiding tbe discussions and coi
troversies which Time will probably detei
No trace of the rude, savage Egypt has yt
beeu discovered. Our deepest research'
show her to us as only the mother of a mos
accomplished race. How they came by the
knowledge ls a matter of speculation-tht
they possessed it is a matter of fact. TL
dyke by which Menes diverted the stream <
the Nile, in the first historical reign, wa
doubtless showu to Abraham, ia whose da
the diversiou of the river was as old a stor
as the accouut of Joan of Arc, or Jack Cad?
is to us. Aud iii the reign of Meris wa
formed un artificial lake four hundred an
fifty miles in circumference and three bun
dred feet in depth. It was owing to ol
Meris that ouce dry Egypt had corn enougl
to spare when Syria aud Arabia fainted iron
lack of sustenance.
The mass of masonry in the pyramid
wou'd weigh (>3V',000 tons, und thc joint
between the casing stoues are not wide
thau the thickness of silver paper. Obelisk;
ninety and statues forty feet high, eacl
fashioned out of one stone, were not uncom
mon things. The biock3 were clean siiee?
separated from the ndtive rock, not bj
wi'dgcs, by chiselling and sawing. The ole
Egyptiaus knew better. A small groove
was cut, say one hundred feet long, and in
this a number of dry wooden wedges wert
inserted; then water was poured into the
groove, and the wedges, expanding simulta?
neously, broke away the huge fragment as
neatly as a strip of glass is taken off by a
diamond. And these stones were wrought
and set with consummate skill. The famous
Labyriuth had 3000 chambers, and Herodo?
tus found the upper chambers "to excel all
"other human productions." The ground
covered by the Temple of Karnac is nearlv
square, and the sides measured about one
thousand eight hundred English feet. Courts,
pillars, monolithic figures, sculptures, rows
of sphinxes, are massed in such profusion,
that the sight is too much for modern com?
prehension. In oue of its hails the Cathe?
dral of Notre Dame might stand and not
touch its walls. The whole valley and delta
of the Nile was covered with temples, palaces,
toombs, pyramids and pillars. These works
were executed before the Exodus of Israel ;
some of them before the visit of Abraham.
The Egyptians were adepts in paper-mak?
ing. Papyrus rolls, written in thc days of
the early Pharaohs, are yet in existence.
They had a passion for writing, and every
surface that would receive hieroglyphics
was covered with inscriptions. We did not
know, till fifty years ago. that papyri, as
weil as rocks, cuiiius, tombs and walls, had
any tale to tell.
Tue armies of Sesostris had war chariots
of a magnificent construction. Heavy arm?
ed warriors wore coats of mail. The sol?
diers used the bow, darts and slings, jave?
lins, spears and pikes. Scaling ladders and
battering-rams were well understood. While
Greece was at his horn book. Egypt waa al?
ready at her meridian: in wisdom, pre-emi?
nent; ii. works, a giant.
Land surveying was well understood. The
Egyptians were observant astronomers, and
the rotundity of the earth, the 3un's place in
?the solar system, the obliquity of the eclip?
tic, the starry composition of thc Milky Way,
aud the borrowed light of the moon, are
thought by Wilkinson to have been no
secrets io th ?m. They knew the true U ugth
of the year. Records were made every day
ai.tiiB .fading and setting 01 the stars. The
tru'? meridian had been ascertained before
tji?j.'fi'rjt 'pyramid was built. They had the
dc?iir?il and duodecimal modes of arithme
tical calculation from the earliest times, and
understood the philosophy of the mechani?
After cort:, flax was th? chief crop, and
linen was made so fine that each single
thread of a garment sent to Lindus. by
King Amasis. (600 years B. C.. ) was com?
posed of 365 minor threads twisted together.
Not only was linen spun, but it wa3 dyed
and richiy embroidered from the very earliest
times. Cutting, polishing and setting pre?
cious stone3 was done in excelleut style by
Egyptian lapidaries. They mined successful?
ly, and could temper steel. Mummification
was an art. Sight-seers maj-, to-day. ex?
amine tue corpses of men and women over
whom thousands of years have rolled with?
out bringing them to corruption, or depriv?
ing them of their human form. The pro?
cesses of embalming occupied three months.
And the swathing of the embalmed form
was so artistically executed that professional
bandagers of the present day are lost in ad?
miration of its excellence. The strips of j
linen have been lound extending to 1000 yards
in length. Nor was the successful pickling of
ancestors a chance discovery. The word
J "chemistry" comes from chemi. and chemi
I means Egypt; the science was rightly named
after the country.
The Egyptians never took kindly to "the
"briny," but when they did take to the
ocean, they did it to some purpose. A fleet
fitted out by ?eco II was absent two years,
and did verily doable the Cari? o' Good
Hope. Glass they manufactured in all its
varieties. They understood the laws oMiar
mony, and played the lyre, harp, flute, and
guitar, besides trumpet, drum and cym?
bal The Spanish castanet had its origin
in Egypt. Medicine wa3 assiduously stud?
ied. There were dentists and oculists, a
doctor for digestion, . a physician for the
brain. Every practitioner kept to bis own
branch. Of the uris and sciences, which the
Egyptians possessed in common with other
ancient peoples, it i3 not necessary to speak
here. They could do all that their neigh?
bors did, and a very great deal more that
no other nation on the earth could then ac?
complish-nay, they did some works which
have never been equalled in either ancient
or modern times.
Great and splendid a3 are the things
which we know about oldest Egypt, she is
made a thousand times more sublime by our
uncertainty as to the limits of her accom?
plishments. Under the soi! are hid away
thousands of relics which may astonish the
world for agesto come, and change contin?
ually ita conception of what Egypt was. Re?
search proves the objects of it much older
than we thought them to be; something
thought to be wholly modern is proved to
be a repetiton of things Egyptian, and other
things, known to have boo:: Egyptian? are
carried back more and more towards the
very beginning of things. She shakes our
most rooted ideas concerning thc- world's
history. There is a spell over her still.
The cloud which covered Egypt began to
break at the beginning of this century. And
when life and vigor and civilization shall
return, what great results may he expected
to accompany them ? As she looks back
with pride and glory at what she was, the
hope of what she may again be is lively with?
in her. and sae can feel a trust in herself.
Her reviving ambition will feed upon the
mighty deeds of old, and her sons will gain
streugth from the knowledge of the glorious
dead. When this spirit shall come upon
Egypt, then, perhaps, the world will truly
under3tand what the wisdom of tue Egyp?
For him who believes thal his puny cflorts
are tending to the establishment of a golden
age. aud leading the human race to per?
fection, there can be no corrective more
etfectua! than the study of ancient Egypt.
From thence he may loam the truth that
human knowledge and human wisdom can?
not perpetuate themselves. Tho glory of
Egypt came to naught. Progress was ar?
rested during a lar^c span of the world's ex?
istence. And when we sam up what we
have gained and lost, the amount of ad?
vancement since tiie days of Moses is very
little, and that little due to a r?naissance
in the last two or three "entunes.
We have plenty of legitimate work to do.
We are commissioned to subdue tiie earth,
not to determine its future. The earth U
not ours ; nevertheless, wo have u great field
for labor. Let us benefit, if we may. our
own generation and that which is to follow,
trusting to Providence to determine, whether
any part of our work shall survive, whether
it shall perish utterly, or whether it shall lie
for millenniums under a cloud and ?ive again
hereafter to a race such as it hus uot enter?
ed into our hearts to conceive.

Wc beg leave respectfully to call the attention

into a lengthy description of their merita, Ac.
There ls hardly a elty or town of any note In tua
country into which they have not found their

and dally increasing demand ls owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and Intrinsic worth.
Being determined to make them the Standard Ex.
tracts of the day, we have still further Improved
their quality, and now we firmly and honestly be*
lleve that they stand without a riva!. Our Vanilla
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy of flavor. It ls a strictly pure and high*

short, we think lt the best that is made, at least,
this ls the decision of the best judges tn *t. i coun?

many of the so-called Flavoring Extracts of the
