~ IN I'EKESTiNii DEVELOPMENT.
The Pans correspondent of the Journal
of Commerce, under date of the 27th Novem
ber, writes as follows:—You have read of
Memphis, the vast city of Egypt, second in
importance only to Thebes, alter the fall of
which it became the capital. It was ot un
known antiquity. Among its most splendid
edifices, the temple of Serapis, with its av
enue of Sphinxes, had the brightest renown.
‘Now covered by the sand ot the desert, is
the common record of travellers. l>ut thiscox
ering has been removed, and an inestimable
booty for archaeologists, happily discovered.
Mr. Auguste Mariette, whom the French
government sent to Egypt on a scientific mis
sion, has just returned after an absence of
four years, lie devoted them exclusively
to excavations of the Serapeum, or, Temple of
Serapis, and succeeded beyond all hope.
The administration of the Louvre are prepar
ing new galleries for an early display ot the
treasures of antiquity and art which he has
brought with him. ‘lie completely cleared
the Serapeum of the sands under which it
lay buried for so many centuries. The fu
sion of flreek and Egyptian ait at various
periods is established by a number of statues
which were amid the images of Serapis.
Sculptured representations of Apis were
found near the statues ot i indar, Homer,
Lycurgus, Pythagoras, Plato and Euripides.
Au alley or avenue of six hundred Sphinxes
is terminated by a series ot figures repre
senting the principal Hellenic divinities—
genii placed, in the Egyptian manner, on
animals that symbolize those divinities.—
The most important of Mariette’s discoveries
was the Tomb of Apis—a monument excava
ted entirely in live rock, i here area hundred
vast chambers, and a considerable number
of galleries and streets—the ensemble of a
real subterraneous city. They supplied the
discoverer with a multitude of (niono
lynths, shafts, statuettes, images of all dimen
sionsana every age. ) ueposiieu uy me uuni-ut.
Egyptians in tlie chambers and compart
ments of the funeral structure, as tokens ot
their pious devotion to the mummy ot the
god worshipped at Memphis. I here aie epi
taphs forming a chronological record ot each
of the Apis buried in the common tomb.—
The sculpture is of the date of the pyramids,
and the statues are in the best preservation:
the colors are perfectly bright; altogether
the execution is admirable, and they convey
an exact idea ot the physical character ot the
primitive population.
A PROP OF OIL.
Every man who lives in a house, especial
ly if the house be his own, should oil all the
various parts of it once in tvv<> or tarot'
months. The house will last much longer,
and will be much more quiet to live in. Oil
the locks, bolts and hinges of the street door,
and it will shut gently with luxurious ease,
ami with the use of a little amount of force.
A neglected lock requires great force to cause
it to shut, and with so much violence that the
whole house, its doors, its windows, its very
floors and joists are much shaken, and in
time they get out of repair in all sorts-hf
ways, to say nothing of the dust, that i» dis
placed every time the house is so shaken.—
The incessant hanging of doors, scrooping ot
locks, creaking and screaming of hinges, is
a great discomfort. Even the bell-wire
cranks should suuitimes be oLed, and they
will act more certainly* and witu such gem ic
force that there will be little danger of break
ing any part of them. 1 be castors •>! tablel
and chairs .should bo sometimes oiled, and
they will move with such gentle impulse and
bo quietly that a sleeping child or an old man
is not awakened. A well oiled door lock
opeus and shuts with hardly a whisper.—
Three pennyworth's of oil used in a large
house once a vear, will save many* shillings
in locks and other material, and in the end
will save many pounds in even the substan
tial repairs of a house, and an old wile living
and sleeping in quiet repose will enjoy many
more years of even temper aud active usetul
nees.. Housekeepers, pray do not torget the
oil. A stitch in time saves nine, aud a drop
in time saves pound*.
