Sept. 22, 1855. lf)w5$l.S7
Captain William Allen, of the British na
vy, hus published a book, advocating the con
vt'iion of the Arabian Desert into an ocean.
The author believes that the great valley, ex
tending from the southern depression of tlx:
Lebanon range to the head of the Gulf of
Akaba, the eastern branch of the head of tlie
Red Sea, has been once an ocean. It is, in
many places, thirteen hundred feet below the
level of the Mediterranean, and in it ate sit
uated the Dead Sea and the Sea of Tiberias,
lie believes that this ocean, being cut off
from the Red Sea by the rise of the land ar.
the .southern extremity, and being only fed
by. the small streams, gradually became dried
by solar evaporation. lie. proposes to cut a
t iiiial of adequate size from the head of the
Gulf of Akaba to the Dead Sea, and another
hum ihe Mediterranean, near Mount Curmel,
across the plain Esdraeion, to the fissure in
the Mountain ran;e of Lebanon. By this
melius the Mediterranean would rush in, with
a fall of thirteen hundred feet, fill up the
valley, aud substitute an ocean of two thous
and square miles in extent, lor u. barren, use
less desert .'; thus making the navigation to
India as short as the. overland route, spread
ing fertility over a now arid country, and
opening up the fertile regions of Palestine
to settlement and cultivation. The concep
tion is a magnificent one, but no sufficieH-t
survey has been made to determine its prac
ticability or its cost.
The Grave of Fkankun. Great and wide
spread as is the lam" of the "Printer Phi
losopher" and proud as the. people of Phila
delphia are of their illustrious townsman,
we doubt much if one in a hundred of tho
present generation of Philadelphia have eve
seen his tomb. Thousands pass daily with
in a few feet of the spot where his ashes,
and those of his wife, repose, without being
conscious of the fact, or, if aware of it, un
able to obtain a glimpse of the grave. The
bones of the lightning-tamer lie within a ve
ry short distance of Arch street, in the north
west corner of Christ Church grave-yard, at
Fifth and Arch streets. As is generally
known, the spot is marked by a slab of mar
ble, which is almost level with the earth,
and which bears the simple inscription,.
"Benjamin and Deborah Franklin." If the
wall at this point were removed, and a neat
iron railing erected in its stead, every passer
by would be afforded the gratification of see
ing the grave ; a gratification now very diffi
cult to obtain. In u Philadelphia newspa
per, published in December, 1774, we find
the following notice of the death of Mrs.
Franklin : " On Monday, th? nineteenth in
stant, died, at an advanced age, Mrs. Debo
rah Franklin, wife of Dr. Benjamin Frank
lin ; and on the Thursday following, her re
mains were interred in the Christ Church
The announcement of the
of Mrs. Franklin was as
simple and unostentatious as the slab and
its pithy inscription, which marks her final
resting place. Philadelphia Bulletin.
"Sqiiantum" is the name for a fpecies of
fun known only to the Nantucket folks. A
party of ladies and gentlemen go to one of
their famous watering places, where they fishr
dig clams, talk, laugh, sing, dance, play, sail,
bathe, eat, and have a good time generally.
The food consists principally of chowder,
baked clams and fun. No one is admitted
to the sacred circle, who will take offence,
at a joke, and every one is expected to do
his or her part towards creating a general
laugh. Any man who speaks of business
affairs (except matrimony,) is immediately
reproved, and on a second offence publicly
chastised. Care is thrown to the wind, pol
tics discarded, war ignored, pride humbled,
stations leveled, wealth scorned, virtue ex
alted, end this is prjunntum."
The firs? piece of artillery was invented
by a German, soon after the invention of
gunpowder, and artillery was first need by
the Moors at Algesiras, in Spain, in the sieg"?
of 1341.
