' " Ancient Arts.
Ground is so precious in London, or
' its owners aro so grasping, that tho most
interesting relics of antiquity are not
permitted to cumber it. One of the last
remaining fragments of the old Eoman
wall has f been removed. Though exposed
to the wear .and tear of elements
for considerably more than a thousand
years, the mortar "was found to be so
tough and strong that the workmen
'were actually compelled to cut out the
stone as if they had been in the original
qudrry. Mortar makers and stonemasons
nowadays might take lessons
ftpm their remote predecessors, whose
ideas of durability seem to have b'e6n
quite different? front those prevailing at
present. It is said jthaV the stones of
the Pyramids compared with which
the London wall is a thing of yesterday
are laid in mortar no thicker than a
sheet of paper, .and. yet remain so firmly
fixed mfter the lapse of thirty or forty
centuries that the thinnest knife-blade
cannot be inserted between them. liiese
ancient Egyptians, then, couM learn
nothing from us ;n that line of business;
but we might learn a vast deal from
'them. 'Even the ruins 6f their buildings
make"Tnodern architects ashamed. "What
must those buildings have been in the
; pride of their youih and strength ? The
stateliest structures of London, Paris and
New York are' mere card-houses in comparison
with the temples aud palaces
whioh once lined the banks of the Nile.
Abraham and Mose3 saw grander specimens
of architecture in Egypt than can
be seen in our own time anywhere on
the face of the earth. The Kothschilds
with all their money, cannot buy such
mechanical skill as their ancestors in
Egyptian bondage witnessed, and probably
assisted. If the art of building is
not lost, it has at least woefully degenerated,
and might be rediscovered to
the profit of all concerned. Yet in the
face of these facts; which every schoolboy
is supposed to know, a gentleman
whose profession is usually accompanied
by a reasonable amount of learning recently
said in a public address in "our
city, that no valuable inventions had
ever been given to the world outside of
Christianity. What could he have been
thinking of ? Certainly not of what he
was saying. The "arch, for instance,
was invented nobody nOws when or
by whom ; but, at the very lowest calculation,
thousands of years before the
Christian era. The immense masses of
stone of which-the Pyramids are composed
were lifted to their places by
machinery of which we know nothing.
Who invented it? We cannot even get
out such stones as can be seen to-day in
abandoned Egyptian quarries. Who
invented the art of quarrying? A small
lens, such as might have been Used in a
. rude telescope, has been found among
the rubbish of Nineveh. Who invented
that? The bricks of which "Nineveh
and Babylon were built are in fair preserve
tion to-day, and most of our knowledge
of the Chaldeans and their institutions
is derived from inscriptions on
clay tablets. Who invented the art of
brick-making, and the stamping of letters
and figures in clay ? The Greeks
had the art of manipulating marble in
such supreme perfection that the best of
wQUfcfgculpture isbiit a,jniserable imitation
of theirs. Yet the Greeks were
not Christians. The Pompeian frescoes
are mosaics are far more beautiful, as
well as more lasting, than ours. Yet
- they were not ckme by Christians. It is
now believed that gunpowder and the
mariner's compass, iind other important
inventions, including the germ of the
printing-press were known in China
long before Europd obtained them. Yet
the Chinese were not and- are not Christians.
There is too much of this "zeal
without knowledge." It does no good,
'. kt and indirectly, not a little harm. "Let
justice be be done," even to theancient
heathen, " though the heavens .'fall."
