[Entered at the Posioffict at Alexandria, Virginia, as
\ iffnnuny J'nwrapped.
New Brunswick ha3 had a strange sensa?
tion. It has attended a. kind of Egyptian
seance. The mummy,thatof a royal priestess,
secured by Dr. Lansing, professor in the
Theological Seminary, through the agency
of his missionary father at Cairo, was un?
wrapped the other day before an audience
of shout one hundred guests invited from
tho city and vicinity. From tho inscrip?
tions or: the mummy case, as explained by
Dr. Lansing;, this priestess must have been
of high rank, and have been embalmed in
the time of Moses, or about 1400 years B. C.,
which would make nearly 3:300 years as the
period of her preservation. The double
crown of Upper and Lower Egypt was on
either side of the coffin, ar.d besides these
was tho picture of the hawk-headed deity,
etirmounted by the snu's disk, thus indicat?
ing that the remains once, belonged to a
person -jf the royal line. Aud a small white
tublc-t found with tho mummy told tho
same story. Sometimes there are found
articles bi great interest within the wrap
pint's? such as necklaces, mirrors, caskets
containing cosmetics, scarabtei, especially a
papyrus roll containing portions of cr even
the whole Book of the Dead, And it wa3
hoped one or more of these things might
be discovered on this occasion. But noth?
ing wee found. Perhaps the Book of
the Dead bad been deposited, as was
sometimes done, in tho jar that held the
intestines?for, in the process of embalming,
the intestines, the heart and liver were re?
moved from the body aud preserved in sep?
arate vessels. Although there was somo
disappointment because no "itnd" was mttde,
yet there wa-t uo lack of interest. In fact
the attention was durins: a part el the time
almost painfully tiler: whilst the bondages
v^tre being removed. Tito outer strips were
here and there in excellent condition; but
as the body was approached they were
rotten and brittle, and fairly embedded in
bitumen and other preservative materials.
The hands were found crossed upon the
brca=t, the teeth and finger nails perfe::t, the
llesh nbsorbed, leaving the skin drawn
closely over the bones. The height was
about live feet, und specific appearan"is
showed the figure: to have been that of a
female, aged perhaps sixty or sixty-five
years. The most interesting feature about
these mummies is th*t they reveal tho bo
lief of Egyptian-; :p. the resurrection of the
body. They held that after three thousand
years the soul would return aud re?
unite itself to the body in case tho
body were etiil it- existence. Hence
they endeavored by their rock-cut tomts
and pyramids and by their processes of
embalming to guard the body against the
violence of man and the decay of nature.
Where did tbej get this doctrine of the
bod\ 's rtsurreetk-n ? I! wnuld seem that the
heathen, however enlightened and phil?
osophical, were without the least faith in j
this doctrine. On the other band, they j
thought it absurd and impossible. Socrates
held lirmly enough to the immortality of the
soul, but not at all to tho resurrection of the
body. And so the stoics and epicureans and
other philosophers listened respectfully to
Paul ;tt Athens until he maintained the
resurrection of the body, when they began
to mock. Tho very conception of such a
thing seemed to them a fit subject for ridi?
cule. And thus it might be shown in detail
that this doctrine was, with the exception of
the Egyptians, peculiar to the Hebrews to
whom God had immediately revealed it.
Perhaps it passed from the Hebrews to tho
Egyptians. However this may be, it is at
any rate a pleasing as well a3 significant
fact that this precious Christian truth in re?
gard to the body's restoration to life was so
earnestly and devoutly held at that early
:1Tiie Walking Delegate/'?The de?
cisions of the courts all tend to establish a
wholesome doctrine that the walking dele?
gate will have to walk the plank. Let us
have i- weil under.-dood that any man who
comes forward and tries to picket the busi?
ness of another man, with whom he has had
no previous relations of any kind, seeking
to cut off his patronage, annoy bis laborers,
or destroy his business by any means, ren?
ders himself liable to be assessed in damages
correeponding to the injury inflicted?and
we shall have fewer cases of labor disputes.
The decision of Judge Brown at New York,
holding that (?uinn and his associates must
stand suit for the damage they had done to
the Old Dominion Steamship Company, is
of wide application. Some communities in
Massachusetts have been visited by the
walking delegates as with a pestilence.
Since 1S70, 24 firms have withdrawn wholly
or in part from Lynn, which to day employ
outside of that city 5.0SO hands, represent?
ing at least 12,000 people. Haverhill has
recently lost 5 .firms, employinc GOO baud.-3.
Beverly, Stoneham, and Marblehead have
lost 15 firms. Of all the firms above spoken
of, 35 employing over S,000 hands have left
the State of Massachusetts and gone
to Maine or New Hampshire. Six fac?
tories now stand vacant in Haverhill for
this cause, and the labor arbitrators
of the State say that "we found it so
all along the lime, and we could talk for
hours aud constantly bring up new incklenls
and new points/' This reminds us of a case
of which we recently heard, as well vouch
ed for, of an industry which had in succes
sive generations built up and beautified a
prosperous village. The firm conducting
the business had, by long experience, reach
hi t> standing for their goods untouched by
competition. The business had descended
from father tc son and grand-sen, accumu?
lating wealth and the operatives were the
descendants alike of the c-rigioal workmen
and owned their comfortable homes. The
present proprietor kept up the business, not
from need, but frcm family pride ir; the
brand and a natural iulere>; in the town
and the industry which bis ancestors had
built up. In an evil day, a labor dispute
was raised, tbe walking delegate appeared
with the demands of some "union," and the
proprietor locked the factory ard ??id it
would never be opened again. These are
the calamities which are brought on men by
a senseless disregard of tbe bread view and
the large aspect of things Workmen quar?
rel about microscopic grievances which a
generation ago would not have been thought
"Yes; I shail break the engagement," she
said, folding her arms and looking defiant;
"it in really too much trouble to converse
with him: he's as deaf a post, ai d tnlks
I like he had a mouthful of mush. Betide?,
j the way he hawks and apite io di?gus;ing."
"Don't break the engagement for that; tell
him to lake Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy. It
will cure him completely." "Weil. I'll leii
him. I do hate to break it off, for in aii c.hcr
respects he'squile too charming'' Of ccurc?-.
