Mr. Flinders l'etrie recently de
lircrctl at tle Owens College. Man
chester, a most interesting address
on exploration iu Kuvpi. It had
! been thought, he aaitl, that the im-
liipiiec mounds of rubbish iiidit-nling
sites of towns hail Ix.fn nimle on
purjHMC, but tbey resulUil from tlie
natural decay of mud brick build
ing. Those heaps of ruined walls
nd earth and Ulierd rose even
to eighty ftel high in some places;
but other ancient sites were much
less imposing, n to I might even not
attract notice on the open dwierl.
The higher the mound the longer
the place had liwn inhabited; 'and
if the surface was of n late jicriod,
the earlier parts, which were most
needed, were under such a depth of
rubbish as to be practically inac
cessible. Much could Us known at
(lrsl sight; and prospecting h.nl now
become ns scientific a matter in an
tiquities as ill geology. Knowing,
by h glance at the sherds on the U.p,
what was the latest jieriotl of occu
pation of tho iti and knowing the
usual rate of accumulation of a mud
brick town aUnit five feet in a cen
tury we could guess how fur back
the bottom of the mound mutt be
dated. Other remains had tli lb-rent
indications. I f in the midst of a
great mound there was n wide Hat
crater, that was probably the lem
plesito, surrounded by houses which
lmd accumulated high on all sides
of it. Sinking of tho results of ex
ploration, Mr. I'etrio suid that we
now realize what the course of arts
had been in ICgypt. In the earliest
days yet known to us aUnit ItKX)
11. V. we found great !kill in ex
ecuting accurate and muive stone
work, such skill h had hnrdlv ever
been exceeded. We found ehiiorate
tools used, jeweled saws and tubu

A QUIiltK Wtl.U ANIMAL.
The farmers mid hunters of Han
cock county, Virginia, are excited
and alarmed over the depredations
of n mysterious wild animal, which
has la-en feeding recently UKin
calves, sheep, pigs mid other small
stock. It has lieeu seen several
times lately, and is described as re
sembling a panther, but no one 1ms
yet succeeded iu getting n shot al it.
Tho hcust,s fora(ing expeditions
are made mostly at night, but it
docs not turn its back against a
plump piece of mutton in broad day
unlit. The women and children re
fuse to leave the protection of their

Uccciitly a party was orgiuiinwl
to hunt the animal down, and went
to tho woods, where it was exjM-cled
to be, accompanied by dogs. The
dogs found the beast, which, in de
fending itself, tore three of them lo
pieces, and wounded a iiumticr of
others. The hunters heard the
noise of the conflict, aud sensibly
concluded that they had not lost
any panther, and loft w ith all jiossi
