Continued and Concludedfrom Gazette of September 27. I near relative of King Pinotem. Three mummy-i


The Great Discovery of Mummies at I
Thebes.
No. 15.-King Ramses I., the founder of the 19th
flypasty. 'The three mummy-.cases resemble those
bf Kfig Atenhptbp, except that they have upon
the outside of the lids richly-gilt representations
of the features of the King. The colours of the
incriptiois are yellow, green and blue. Ramses
I., was the father of Seti I., and grandfather of
Ramses II. (the Great), and his tomb at Biban-el-
Molook, or Gates of the Kings," near Thebes,
was among the number of those opened by Belzoni,
and is the oldest hitherto discovered in that
valley. The granite sarcophagus bearing the
name end titles of Ramses I. still remains in the
tomb.
No. 16.a-.King Seti I. the second King of the
19th Dybasty, who regained some of the foreign
conquests of Thotmes III. which had been lost by
Ramses I. The mummy is in a good state of pre-
servation, but only one of the mummy-cases re-
mains. This mummy-case is inscribed with three
longitudinal rows of texts upon a white ground,
and bears the facsimile of the King's features,
surmounted by the Royal crown and urosi ser-
pepts. The linen shrouds of the mummy bear
hieratic inscriptions, stating that the remains of
Seti L. were thus concealed in a pit during the
time of a foreign invasion. None who have
visited Abydos need to be reminded of the
Temple of Seti, where all the gods of the Egyptian
pantheon seemed to have been worshipped, and
where each had his separate shrine. As I men-
tioned in a previous letter, the sarcophagus of Seti
I. was brought to England by Belzoni, and is in
Sir J. Soane's Museum. It is carved from a
single block of the finest alabaster, and is covered
With incised, heiroglypbic texts and several hun-
dred figures descriptive of the passage of the sun
through the hours of night.
No. 17.-King Ramses II. The third King of
the 19th Dynasty and the Pharaoh of the Jewish
captivity. The mummy is in a perfect state of pre-
servation, but of the three mummy-cases in
which it once probably reposed only one remains.
This mummy-case is of plain sycamore wood,
unpainted and unvarnished. It is carved to repre-
sent Ramses in the position of Osiris. The crossed
arms rest upon the breast._ In the right hand is
the Royal whip, and in the left is the Royal hook.
The features are most beautifully and delicately
carved, and are surmounted by the crown of Upper
and Lower Egypt, with the urseus serpent. The
mummy-case ig a most graceful and animated
specimen of sculpture, displaying, in all its purity
the firm and flowing lines of, the period of the
Egypt Renaissance. The nomen and prcenomen
cartouches of Ramses are written in plain black
characters. upon the mummy-case, which bears
no .other text or representations whatever, and
in its beautiful simplicity contrasts strangely
with the pompous and exaggerated dedications of
almost all other inscriptions which mention the
name of Ramses the Great. The mummy itself is
wrapped fn rose-coloured and yellow linen of a
texture finer than the finest Indian muslin, upon
which lotus flowers are strewn. One of the bands
which pass across the shrouds to keep them
in place bears a hieratic inscription stating that
this, the mummy of Ramses II., was concealed in a
pit at a time when a foreign army invaded Egypt.
No. 18.-Queen Nout-jent. A Queen of the 21st
Dynasty. The mummy-case was once entirely
covered with a thin sheet of gold, only isolated
bits of which now remain. The cover, with the
bas-relief portrait of the queen, is inlaid with
coloured glass and stone mosaic. Each hieroglyph
is composed of small pieces of stone or glass. This
mummy-case is quite different from any that has
hitherto been discovered. From the fact that the
mo e sacred portions of the ritual of the dead, as
well as the figures of the divinities, are left un-
touched, it is to be supposed that the mutilation
was committed at an ancient period. Another In-,,
stance of destruction of this kind exists in the
Boulak Museum, where a tablet may be seen with
all the gold inscriptions scratched away, with the
exception of the god Osiris, whose image the
ancient destroyers had respected.
No. 19.-The High Priest Pinotem, 21st
Dynasty. Three mummy-cases, covered with the
closest written texts in yellow, orange, and green,
and bearing beautiful golden facial portraits of the
High Priest.
No. 20:-Queen Ra-ma.ka 'and her infant
daughter, Mont-em-hat. A Queen of the 21st
Dynasty. Three mummy-cases, covered inside and
outside with texts and representations in green,
yellow, and blue characters, upon a dark ground,
the whole beautifully varnished. The facial
portraits of the queen are heavily gilded and in
high relief. The head-dress is most exquisitely
carved, and is in the style known as that of
the Royal Vulture. The head-dress is coba-
blue, with the urcei serpents in gold. The cart
touches represent the names of the Queen and of
her daughter, the mummies of both of whom are
intact and. wrapped in qeperate winding.sheets.
The.omumay of the daughter is quite small and
is prepared in a sitting posture. She could not
have been more that a year old. The largest of
the five papyri found at Deir-el-BAhari refers to
this queen.
No. 21.-King Pinotem, the third King of the
21st Dynasty.' One of the most valuable of the
papyri yet" discovered bears this King's name.
The mummy-case in which King Pinotem
reposes once contained the body of Thotmes I
(See No. 8.) The mummy-case is somewhat
mutilated, and the gilt inscriptions of King
Pinotem have in some places] been worn or
scratched away, and disclose the cartouches and I
texts of Thotmes I. The tase is broken open
at the top, and linen shrouds are torn from the
mummy, so has to render the latter visable. The
flesh is of a dark, mahogany brown colour; the
mouth is open, disclosing the teeth. The nose
cheeks, and ears are intact. The arms are crossed
below the waist, and the bands have disappeared.
The inside of -the mummy-cases is covered with
texts, and the linen shrouds which remain
attached to the body bear hieratic inscriptions
which determine the identity beyond any doubt.
No. 22;-Queen Hon-ta-taoui a daughter of
King Pitotem. Three mummy-cases, beautifully
inscribed and ornamented. Previous to the present


discovery a valuable papyrus relating to this queen
had already been deposited in the Boulak Museum.
io.428.--*The High Priest Ma-sa-ha-ta, a son or


cases, well preserved.
No. 24.-Queen Ast.em-jeb, daughter of King
Pinotem. Three mummy-cases in excellent state
of preservation, remarkable for the beautiful col-
ouring of the inscriptions.
No. 25.-Princess Nessi-kon-sou, a daughter of
King Pinotem. Three munmmy-oases, well pre-
served.
No. 26.-Prince Jep-ta.a-oun-ancb, son of King
Pinotem, and High Priest of Ammon Ra. Three
mummy-cases, most beautifully inscribed in orange
and olive green. The text inside the innermost
mnmmy-case is very remarkable.
The five papyri which I mentioned In my last
letter will not be steamed and unrolled until M.
Maspero's return to Cairo in October. These pa-
pyri can be unrolled easily for about a metre of
their length-just enough to disclose their beauti-
ful characters and exquisitely-coloured illumina-
tions and illustrations. None of the mummies
will be unrolled before M. Maspero's arrival.
Moreover, the excavations among the pyramids of
the 7th Dynasty at Sakkara are now making rapid
progress and require the unremitting attention of
the Museum authorities; consequently no study
of a nature to determine the precise archeological
value of this grand discovery can as yet be under-
taken. The other objects of value, including the
magnificent leather tent of King Pinotem and
the Canopic Vase, have already been described in
my previous letter. The amount of new material
that the Boulak Museum will be able to offer to
the archbmologest during the coming winter is un-
precedented, and inaugurates most auspicially
the School of Egyptology which was established
here a few months ago by the French Government
and which together with the Museum, Is placed
under M. Maspero's direction.

ICE CREAM FESTIVAL IN SMITH'S PA.
RISH,
Held in aid of the new School House on the 6th
October, 1881.
This entertainment, originally prepared for, at
tCe lands immediately east of the residence of Wil.
liam Whitney, Esqr., was, in consequence of the
In element weather. subsequently put before the
Public at the Hermitage. The moon shone brightly,
the refreshing northerly wind the fi rst of the season,
lent its influence as a novelty, and the jolly old re-
sidence was brihtened by ample light and by the
happy faces of 300 guests. Ice Cream in abundance
was a characteristic. Bermuda oysters and crack-
ors, excellent tea and coffee, with cake in abundance
were few among the excellent ingredients of the
well-provided refreshment department. Ladies of
"the ancient' time." a charming milkmaid, and the
Goddess of Liberty were good enough to enliven
the Company by their presence. The band added
the current and popular airs to the pleasures of the
entertainment, and between 11 and 12 goddesses
and guests left fully satisfied with the result of the
handsome preparations and as folly convinced that
they had secured for all a really good time.

EXTENSION orP THE ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH
SysTaM.-We mentioned in a former issue that
provision had been made by the Legislature to en-
able the Royal Engineer Department to extend to

J. M. Hayward to D. M-Pbee Lee. I am happy to
j form you that Hamilton is in direct communiea-
tion with the Town Hall, St. Georges."
We congratulate the good people of St. George's
in having this long desired connection between the
two Towas, and indeed with every part of the 1s-
Inds, accomplished. This desideratum is mainly
dattue to the exertions ef ~Joseph M. Hayward, Esqr.,
ant only in disposition asan active member of the
Corporation of the Town of St. Gearge's, but also
in that of a representative for that town inl the
General Assembly.

GA-tnILD MCMonIALt, MEDALs.-The Supernla-
tendent of the Mint at Philadelphia has been au-
thorised by the Director of the Mint to strike Me-
morial Medals having the heads of President Lin-
coln and Garfield on opposite sides. They are to

the head of the. late President Garfield on one


se diand wreath on the other, and will be sold to
the Public at the same prices.

I do not at least believe that this will be in our

Arabs threw the rails into the river. The Station
master, who was an ex-lieutenant in the Frencb
army and a chevalier of the Legion of Honor, was
burned alive, and ten employes, mostly Maltes
and Italians. were massacred. M. Roustan, Freneh
Minister at Tunis, invited the English and Italian
onsuls to assist at an official Inquiry into the
disaster. The massacre was undoubtedly caused
by the wholesale destruction of olive forests,
villages and vineyard which General qabatter con-
sidered necessary around Zaghouan. TheTunlodan

accused of murdering the Maltese and Italians.

ST. JOHN'S CHURCH PEMBROKE.
Considering that the peoplepeople" liable to be assessed
for Church purposes," is this Parish, were net fair-
ly represented at the meeting held in the Town Hall
on Friday, 30th September. (180 person having been
notified and only 92 appearing) and our motives hav-
ing been impugned, we deem it proper in Justice to
them and to the Vestry who invited their attendance
to adopt this mode of putting them in possession of
the elreumsunces and objects that originated the
eall, and our action under it
let. It being neesary to do some repairs to the
interior of the Church it was deemed by the Vestry
to be a suitable time to make certain alterations and
improvmants that many of the Congregation had ex-
pressed a desire to see effected, and which would be
materially promoted by the erection of a Vestry
attached to the North side of the Church contiguous
to the Apse: The Pews being uncomfortable for
both sitting and kneeling, with high straight backs
and sides forming boxes that are very warm in Sum*
mer, and the space badly -desposed for ordinary siz-
ed families, involving a considerable loss in the seat-
ing of the whole Church, it was proposed to com-
mene at the Eastern portion and substitute open
seats of modern construction such as have been re-
eently adopted in other churches with advantage
and satisfaction, and if desired, to follow up the
other portions till completed, funds permitting.
2nad. The Organ Loft being crowded, and the ceil-
ing low, it was thought the music would sound
better, and the Choir be made comfortable by removal
of the organ down stairs; and by transferring the
Sunday Scholars to the South Gallery at present but
partially occupied, the Western Gallery might be
rented to the poor at some small rent, and aecommo.

srL Changing the position of the pulpit to the
other side, lowering it, and substituting a smaller
desk for the present cumbrous one would'fford
greater facility for hearing and seeing, and placing
the Chbanel seats East and West similar to those
occupied by the Governors and Admiral's families,
would avoid the irreverence and inconvenience of
repeated turnings during the Communion Service
and of sitting with the backs to the Minister while
oflciating.
4th. The Vestry being in funds to accomplish
these various obJee at moderate cost, and without
fecting the holding of the regular Services, thought
it would be consulting the wishes of the Congrega-
tion (many of whom are not entitled to vote) to
invite the pariabioners and tax-payers to meet and
consider the proposals, together with a digested
lan of the whole, to obtain their sanction or rejee-
as by Law required.
6th. After an opening address by the Rector as
Chairman, detailing the importance and advantages
of the objects which he earnestly commended, a
motion was made by one of the Wardens, seconded
bthe other, fo the work to be carried out, which
by a mJority ef twelve was not sanctioned.
A 4o.uter motion as "an amendment," not having
been introduced in Vestry Meeting, nor brought for-
war'd llly as we believe, was carried by the same
1 advocated by the mover with a charge that
"et posed alterations proceeded from a spirit of
,fiuc tm which, in behalf of the Rector, the
Seeft, sad oursilves we emphatically deny, our re.
ord in the Citeh bearing witness.

BERMUDA ROYAL GAZETTE.


For'the Royti Gazette.
ST. JOHN'S CHURCH PEMBROKE.
Considering that the people liable to be assessed
for Church purposes," laI this Parish. were not fair-
ly represented at the meeting held in the Town Hall
on Friday, 90th September. (180 persons having been
notified and only 92 appearing) and our motives bay.
ing been impugned, we deem it proper in justice to
them and to the Vestry who invited their attendance
to adopt this mode of putting them in possession of
the cireumslance and objects that originated the
call, and our action under it.
e1st. It being aneceary to do some repairs to the
interior of the Church it was deemed by the Vestry
to be a suitable time to make certain alterations and
imptovments that many of the Congregation had ex-
pressed a desire to see effected, and which would be
materially promoted by the erection of a Vestry
attached to the North side of the Church contiguous
to the Apse: The Pews being uncomfortable for
both sitting and kneeling, with high straight backs
and sides forming boxes that are very warm in Sum-
mer, and the space badly deposed for ordinary sis
ed families, involving a considerable loss in the seat-
ing of the whole Church, it was proposed to com-
mence at the Eastern portion and substitute open
seats of modern construction such as have been re-
cently adopted in other churches with advantage
and satisfaction, and if desired, to follow up the
other portions till completed, funds permitting.
2nd. The Organ Loft being crowded, and the ceil-
ing low, it was thought the music would sound
better, and the Choir be made comfortable by removal
of the organ down stairs; and by transferring the
Sunday Sebolar to the South Gallery at present but
partially occupied, the Western Gallery might be
rented to the poor at some small rent, and aecommo-
date many who would prefer that to straggling about
in different free seats or with the uncertainty of
9a. Changing the position of the pulpit to the
other side, lowering it, and substituting a smaller
desk for the present eumbrous one would'Sford
greater facility for hearing and seeing, and placing
the Chasel seats East and West similar to those
occupied by the Governor's and Admiral's families,
would avoid the irreverence and inconvenience of
repeated turning during the Communion Service
and of sitting, with the backs to the Minister while
officiating.
4th. The Vestry being in funds to accomplish
these various objects at moderate cost. and without
dseoting the holding of the regular Services, thought
it would be conuilting the wishes of the Congrega-
tien (many of whom are not entitled to vote) to
invite the parishkbioners and tax-payers to meet and
considerr the proposals, together with a digested
lan of the whole, to obtain their sanction or rejee.
boas by Law required.
6th. After an opening address by the Rector as
Chairman, detailingthe importance and advantages
of the objects which he earnestly commended, a
motion was made by one of the Wardens, seconded
by the other, for the work to be carried out, which
by A majority eftwelv was not sancetioned.
A counter motion as "an amendment," not having
been introduced in Veitry Meeting, nor brought for.
dl as we believe, was carried by the same
advoeeated by the mover with a charge that
",.2 W I alterations proceeded from a spirit of
rftedum/, which, in behalf of the Rector, the
YeTir, and ourelves we emphatically deny, our re.
sord the Oah bearing witness.
