At Behiatun. midway between Babylon and Ec batana, la an inscription cut 'n several large tabl^ on a rock at the buac of a mountain, extending to 400 line*, ia the arrow-headed character. Thia great work haa been fully decypher?d by Major Kawliu sau, of the British army, who hra employed much ot his time during the Irst ten yearn in effecting it l>r,>|V??or. Grotefend, L.*sse.i and Weaiergaard hav, aUu !>een diligently employe?l on the same inscrip tion, and have contributed much to it* decypher ment and grammatical tranalation. It ia a memorial of the time of Darius Hysta-pes, who lived in the fixth century B. C? the purport of which, to the historian, must be of equal interest with the peculi arities of the language to the philologist. For the following extracta, which are translations of a por tion of tbis great inacription, we are indebted to a wofk by Mr. Jahn R. Bartlett. " I am D-iriue. the great King, the King ol Kings, the Ki g of Persia, the King of (the depen dent) Province*, the *on of Hystaspes, the grandson of Araames the Archamenian. " Says Dariua the King:?My father wm Hys taspes; of Hyutaspes, the father was Arsames; of Ars mes, the father w?s Aiiyeratnnes; of Ariya ramnes; of Ariynramnes, the lather waaTeispes; of Teispe*, the father was Achaemenes. ?' Says Durius the King On that account we have been called Achaimenians; from antiquity those of our race have been kings. " Says' Darius the KingThere are eight of my race| who have been kinga before me; I am tho ninth; for aveiy long time we have been kings. 41 Says Dariua the King.?By the grace of Or muzd I am King; Ormuzd has granted me the em pire. ?> Says Darius the KingThese are the coun tries which have fallen into my hands?by the grace of Ormuzd I have become king of them? Per-ia, Suaiana, Babylonia, Assyria, Arabia, Egypt; those which are of (he sea, Sparta and Ionia; Ar menia, Cappa locia, Parthia, Zaraugea, Aria, Cho rasmia, Bac.ria. Sogdiane; the Sane, the Sattagy des, Arachosia, and the Medians; the total amount being twenty-one countries. u Saya Dariua the King:?He who haa named Cambysea, the son of Cyiua of our race, he waa here king before me. There waa of that Cambyaes a brother named Baitiua; he waa of the asme Uther and moth r at Cfmbyaea alew this Bartin*. WU Cambyaes slew that Bariius, the troul.l< a of the state ceased which Bartius had ex cited. Then Camby we proceeded to Egypt. W hen Cambyaes had gone to Eg* pt he state became her etical ; then 'he lie became abounding in the land, both in Persia and in Media, aud in other provin ces." . He then goe* on to sj-eak of the rebellions in hi dominion* after the death of Ombys-!-, of the Ma gian who declared himself king, on l that n > one dared to resist him. He continues: Every one was standing obediently arou'id the Mag an until I arrive?l. Then I alxnle in the wor ship of ?)r.iinzd ; Or.nuzd brought help to mOn the 10'h day of the month Bagayad *h I slew the Marian and the chief men who were bis followers, by the grave of Ormuxd I became king; OrniU2d grnntfd me fie sceptre.'' He tl?en s?ys, he " ea'aWiahed hi" race on the throne ua in the days of old," prohibited the sacrili rul worship inUoducetl by t'.e Magia i. ami restoreti thr old tumilies to office, u'l of which wn accoin j.li?tied by the aid of Orinuz.1. The j?op e of Susi ana and Babylon tben l?.'C '.me rebellious. II?: slew the leader of the former. ?? Says Dariv-! the King:?Then I proeeede I to Raby|i>n again*' 'he Nalititbous, who w.?s cal'et) Nalxikhai'rosstr ( Nebuchaciin zzar.) rh- forces ol Nalitehiru* held the Tigris; lh're they had come and thiy bad U??is.

On tin- 27'.h day of 'he mouth of Atiiyata, then it was that we thus fought." Darius then continued h?s march to Babylon, where he wa? met by ihe army of N iritabi'U*; he gave hiin battle and defeated bun, driving his army into the water. He then took Babylon. It would appear from what tbis irtonan h related, that he had a pretty rebel'ious set of subjects, who look advan tage of hi* absence at Bahylon. The inscription continues: Says Darius the King:?While I waa at Baby lon, tiie*e are the countries that revolted against me: Persis, Susiuna, Media. Assyria, Armeuia, 1'aithia, Margiana. S.itisgjdia and Sucia." He then give? the names of the rebellious lei> lers, and of the officers aent '? Fubjugate them; thef^na villages, or citie* where battles were fought; the day of the month when they took p ace and the result in every care by the help of Ormuzd. One example will suffice. After speaking of the revolt of Arme iiia; the inscription continues: ?' Saya Darius the King:?Then Dedarsea by name, nn Armenian, one of my servants, him I sent to Armenia. I thus said to b<m : ' Greeting to thee, the rebel state that doea not obey me, smite it.' The^Dadarses marched. When he rcached Arme nia, then the rebels having collected ceme before Dadartes arraying their battle .... by name, a village of Armenia, there they engaged. Ormuzd I brought help to me; by the grace of Ormuzd my forces ent rely defeated that rebel army. Oh the 8:h of the mon'h Thurawahara, then it was a battle wan fought by them." In ibis manner we have the whole history of the reign of Darius, King of Persia, who filled the throne 550 B. C. And it may te truly aaid that no monument of remote antiquity, which has been pre served to modern times, at all equala it in impor tance. The inscriptions of Egypt are far more an cient, but consist of fragments, which, excepting the tables of kings, do not throw much light on history. Nothing is mure interesting in the details given by the Persian king ot his successes, than hia acknow ledgment of an overruling power, a Supieme Being, wbo protected him and aided him in all hia battles. To the KilUi/r nf :iit NMioiuil I flag. I was w II pledged ui j ?iceiv?r in several of y >ur late numbers that you have coumenced to expose the co upiion and mat pracice of Mr. Polk's administration, without fear, favor, or affection.

If I mistake not, there is h law which pavsed during the late Con gress, directing all government advertisements !o be published in but tteo of the newspapers published in this city, having the largest circu lation. Now, if this be so?and I have no room t? doubt it, as I hive read the act my9?lf as published by the Department of State?why i< this additional expense incurred, which, 1 ?m well informed, amounts to about eight thou sind dollars per annum ? Is it not done to feed a-id pension a political Charlatan, who is cur respondent of several papers at the Norih and who is daily lauding and puffing the adminis tration and the several Secretaries for their economy and honesty ? I am glad to see you eugaged in showing to the people how they .ire served by these very honest Heads of De partments, and in what manner the public lunds are applied. Continue to expose this species of robbery and corruption and you will receive the thanks of the country. Owe of the People. PUBLIC AlEEl ING* At a meeting of the voters of the 5ih Ward, held for the purpose of nominating suitable persons to represent them in the next Council, it was determined that no man would be sup ported by them who could not, at all times, be I ready to express his sentiments on those sub jects, which taey considered of the most vital importance to the Ward. On motiun of Mr J J Rupert, it was Resolved, 1 hat a Committee of four be a| - pointed to wait upon Mr Thomaa Knox P Ma key, with full power to ascertain his sentiments in relation to those leading measures, which it is presumed will be decided by the next Board of Council.
