THE DESOLATE C1TT.
' For the Journal,
Education is a subject which has engrossed I
the minds of many men for the last century nnd !
a half. However, it is only of late years thai t
they lire beginning to investigate th subject, j
and look at it in the light in which they should.
And I would ask if they have used nny extra or
uucalled-for exertion in support of that great
cause which is calculated to ameliorate the con
ilitinft of our fellow-men so much. It oiiL'ht to

Not such is the desol.ito city; the city of the jw'tj
silent dead. All i!j ct tlie past; llirre is no voice
of man to tell of them that dwelt there. Thc
land is laid waste, mid the earth mournctli and
I'udclh away. 'The Lord hath done that which
he had devised; he halh fulfilled his word that
he had commanded in the days of old: he hath
thrown down nnd hath not pitied.'
Such is Kaisariyeh once a proud city of the
Phoenicians; now all thai remains of Cesuri Pu-Icstiua.

Jnijlions of poor uneducated beings living un
fier the yoke of despotism with but little hopes
of bettering their condition. But if they could
become enlightened and see their deplorable
situation, then would the dark clok)d or oppres
sion begin to move slov.ly away, and in its
place would spring up that r,.at spirit of free-
ddm which is so characteristic of our own glo
the earth. No bird of the air or beast of the
field was in sighl; no sound broke upon the still
ness but the sad moaning of the surf; no sign oT
life, or hope, or promise was within tho vast
sweep of desolation around.

the ravages of war, loomed darkly
A SERIOUS CHAntiE.
At Tantnra nn incident occurred which nny
gentleman of respectable standing in society
might well be excused lor passing over in si

found in all the records of Syrian travel, though
doubtless many a traveler has had personal ex

and unmerited charge; one that touches the very
soul of an liumirabtc man in the tenderest part.
Fain would I proceed on the journey and leave
Tanttua to future travelers; but a detire to
maintain that spirit of candor nnd truthfulness
by which il has been my constnnt endeavor to
distinguish this narrative from all others, indu

Education is a theme worthy the pen or a
.giant intellect ; it should make tlie soul of the
devotee of literature to swell with emotions of
admiration. It is despised by a few ignoble
minds and shallow hearts, who look upon its
friends with contempt. Hut the man who
spends his time in laboring for so good a caise,

how 'the Lord maki th tho earth empty, and ma

scatienth abroad the inhabitants ihereuf.'
There was notliing but ruin every where; high
walls rent in gaping fissures; towers shivered
