MONDAY EVENING, DEC. 6.
Discovery in Jerusalem.?A curious
arch? logical discovery has just been made at
Jerusalem The proprietor of a picce of ground
outside the city, odc hundred and fifty yards
north of the Damascus gate, and on the west
of the north road, while digging a cistern on
bis property, camo upon rock twelve and a half
feet below the surface. It appeared to him to
sound hollow when struck. He broke it through,
and found beneath a series of sepulchral
rock-cut chambers. They present nothing re
markable in their structure, and oonsist of two
irregular quadrilateral vaults, one of them
being fifteen feet long by ten feet broad aod
eight feet high, together with a third, thy plan
of which is at present imperfect, aod under the
smaller of the two vaults another, with three
loculi occupying the whole of its urea, exca
vated to a depth often feet below the first.
But in the larger chamber was found a stone
chest of very unusual dimensions, which con
tained, when discovered, human bones. It is
cut from a siDgle ttone, measures seven feet
seven inches in length, two feet eight'inches in
breadth, aod is three feet two inches in height.
It stands upon four feet, and has the rim cut
to receive the lid, portions of which?or what
were believed to be portions?were lyioK in
the chamber. The rock roof of the vault has
been cut away to admit the chest, which Dr.
Chaplin thinks is of much later date than the
tombs. He suggests that it was constructed to
hold a wooden or leaden coffiu, since rifled and
removed. Near to this spct, and perhaps over
it, stood the church dedicated to St. Stephen.
"Is it possible," asks Dr. Chaplin, that we
have here the lastjret?tiog place of Eudocia."?
