Epitoh Wkst Siiohk : Alter all
our wanderings in and about the Holy
Land, Jerusalem, the "Holy City,"
still, of Jews and Christians, is the first
and last place to bt visited. Thousands
have strenuously essayed to write its
history, and as signally failed. No city
on earth has passed through more
changeful scenes; no city has basked
in the sunshine of a greater measure
of divine favor, nor passed through a
more terrible ordeal of retributive jus
tice. Seventeen times has Jerusalem
been sacked and pillaged; again ami
again its walls have been razed to the
ground and rebuilt; millions of men
have been slaughtered 111 its streets,
hile its gutters and sewers have been
glutted with human gore. Once the
oy of the whole earth, it is to day,
beautiful in its sore desolation. Despite
all the differences that sunder lews and
Christians, no sooner do they COM
within these venerable walls than they
ire in the self-same liclovcd city ol
their fathers, and they tread upon sacred
ground; a ike they arc actuated by dc-
otional feelings, and if they have not
wandered counter lo their rcsectivc
tenets, a thousand strangely beautiful
thoughts that come all unhidden revel
in their pent-up souls, and they find
themselves overcome by the tenderest
and sweetest emotions that can possibly
find lodgment in the human breast.
To the rude and bigoted Moliammc
Ian, also, this is a cherished city, though
secondary, in oitil of religious leaching,
to Mecca and Medina. Thus it is that
the visitoi, without being conscious of
the mental operation, forgets its isola
tion, and sees in its dreary and inhospi
table aspect, a passing loveliness that
transcends the modem splendor of all
other cities. As we have intimated in
a former communication, this city is tfl
loiibledly undergoing an imHrtant
and mot wonderful transition slate

That a people should abandon tin- mtret
favored regions of K 11 rope and seek a
irrmanent abiding-place in this, the
most sterile ami desolate part of the
Turkish Empire, is something that
wcs their comprehension. Whoever
emigrates lo Palestine must expect to
battle with the most fickle of climates,
to endure hardship of every kind, and
to lead a life of poverty and suffering.
There is no denying the fact, however,
that of late years, a passion for emigra
tion to their ancient capital, ha de
veloped itself among the Jews in all
parts of Europe. Kvery year since
the Crimean war, they have Wen (mur
ing into Palestine. Though thousands
have perished by fever and famine, the
cry is, 'Still they come.' The great
body of them live on the charity funds
raised by the Rothschilds, Mnntetlere,
and other rich Jews. They have tried
to check the tide of immigration, hut in
vain. It flows on in unabated volume,
and more extensive, consequently, is
the misery of this stranger population.
Palestine is a wasted laud that ages
only can regenerate. It will never
cease, however, to lie a consecrated land
in the eyes of Jews and Christians, and
