TH Vol. VIII.?No. ?13 - * WiioU No. 3000. Cool?7'i New Work on Egypt. This work, is greatly adtaired, and is considered much more amusing book than Stevens's Central America. We continue our extracts aud illustraious:? Mahriaui: amu CoNCUBISSOI i* Eottt. Marriage contracts in Kgypt are generally effected hrough the agency of near relation'", or a clans of indiiduaU who may not inappositely bo termed marriage rokers. The parties to be united rarely or never have ny thing to do with the preliminaries or the final accomlishment of the marriage agreement, further tka:> to au horize their lawful agents to enter upon negotiations for hat purpose. Moat commonly the mother, or siUer.or ome other near female relative, (Vsei ibes the pcr>-on?l atractions and qualifications of some one of Uer acquaintnces to the man desirous to ho married, an J make* the soection for him. Should he have no fenihle relatives to ehom he could confide this important commission, the rder is placed in the hands of a woman, wijooO regular ccujiatiou is to aid men in tenrch of the " betur hall.'" The commission given bv Abraham to his eldest mm v:int kho was to obtain a wife for I-aac, was not dissimilar, x?rhap?, to the modeofprocedu e in many pane* in Eg) |>t it the present day. The marriaj'e broker visit* the various larems, where wlie does not fail to tw introdut ed to ail he inmate* who are of marriageable age. She theu reurns to her employer with an account 01 her discoveries, 'he represent wmc ef the ladle* that she has seen us po lessing great beauty; other?, not so atti active in pei>on<ii M ii'u'--, luit ii'h.

" For nstunre, she will say of a very ordinary young man, of cari ely any property, ami of whose deposition she know s lotliing, 4 My daughter, the youth who wishes to marry rou is j sun:', graceful, elegant, beardless, has plenty of noney.dr^ ><* handsomely, is fond ol delicacies, but canlot enjoy his luxuries alone; he wants you as hiseompalion; he will give you anything that money can procure; le is astayer-at-hotnr, and will speniftia whole time w ith ron, caressing ami fon lling you.' The parents may beroth their daughter to whom they please, and marry her to him without her consent, if (he be not arrived to the aged of puberty; but, after she has attained that ago, she may choose a husband for herself, and appoint any man o arrange and effect the marriage." Ami. iag.' portion must in all ca es be paid by the >r?:legvoom to his wife. Generally, how e- er, only a part ot it is paid before the marriage contract i> pei formed, the balance being reserved to be handed over to the wife at the time .'he mi\ be divorced (shytill that event happen), or at the death of the husband, should she survive liini. The amount of the bridal dowry depend - u;>on the *. ealth ol the parties to be married, and is usually a subject of some higirling on 'he part of those who negotiate the ms'ch. A much larger snm is usually demanded at first hy the frit id of llie bride, than she expects to re i ive; w^iilc the * :? .' of the bridegroom is instructed to offer an BTUfUlt c > i-id?rably *a!ow what he is willing ultimately to pvr. U.it nfier a little chaffering ovor the matter, the bargiiii ? rlin^hod at n price somewhere between the amounts already named; and both parti, s donb'ltss enjoy the siknt satisfaction of believing that they haveinalu uJ excellent b irgain. If the pa'tics arc ia decent circumstances, and en j')y .ne an incni: roinpctcnt to a it-ptutaHc style ol'ltvTnjf, n dowry of abont one hundieu dollars irt considered a h ndsorne thing; though sometimes, tinder umi.ar circumstances, scarcely half that amount is giit.ii. Thi", however, applies only to females in their first marriage, or virgin brines; while those who may have been once 01 oftener divorced, or widow*, receive a much miller amount. tVhnn tht. nnrnnty flf friflnrli nf ?? ? rous ciroumUMcea, she is usually prcMinted at the time of h?r inmiage with a decent outu' of furniture, jewel*, and dresses, all of which aro paraded through the streets on camels, ?,id form a part of the bridal procession. But where the bride happens tube of the lo>ver classes, her parents generally mate as good a bargain as they can for themselves, pocket the marriage dowry, and return very little else tu the bridegroom except his bride This would seem to be scarcely more honorable than the ancient custom that prevailud among the Assyrians, if so much so; who, says Herodotus," assembled together such of their virgins a- were marriageable, at an appointtedtime and place, and some public officer sold them by auction, one by one, beginning with the most beautiful. When one was disposed of, and, as may be supposed, for a considerable sum, he proceeded to sell the one who was next in beauty, taking it for granted that each man married the maid ho purchased. The crier, when he had sold the fairest, selected next the most ugly, or one that was deformed; she also was put up to sale, and assigned to whomsoever would take her with the least money. This money was what the sale of the most beautilul maidens had produced, who were thus obliged to portianout those who were deformed, or less lovely than themaelves. No man was permitted to provide a match for his daughter, nor coul 1 any one take away the woman he had purchased, without first giving security to make her hi* wife.' "The law respecting marriage and concub'n.^ge. though express as to the number of wive* whom the nluslem may have at the same time, namely, four, is not con^id'ircd by the less strict as perfectly explicit with regard to the number of concubines he may keep. It is written: " Take in marriage, of the women who please you, two, three, or four; but if ye fear that ye cannot act equitably (to fo many), take one; or take those whom your right hands have acquired, that is, slaves (Koran, chap. iv. 5, 3.) Many of the wealthy Moslems, interpreting this text according to their desires, marry two, three, or four wives, and keep, besides several concubine slaves." With the exception ol the priests, who rould only marry one, it was the custom of the ancient Egyptians, sa> s D'iodorus, "to have as many wives as thev pleased; and all were bound to bring up 'a* many children as they could, for the further increase of the'inhabitant', which tends much to the well-being either of a city or country." Notwithstanding this liberal license, however, Herodotus informs ns that th* ancient Egyptians, " like the Greeks, confined themselves to one wife. This assertion is nevertheless contradicted:?" That the Greeks did not confine themselves to one wife, we learn from certain aLthority. Euripides was known to be woman hater; 'but,' says Htrme, it was because he was coupled to two noisy vixens.'" "Of the marriage contract* of the Egyptians," *?;> ? Wilkinson, " we. are entirely ignoiant, nor do we find the ceremony represented in the paintings of their tombs. We may however, conclude thatthry were regulated by the customs usual among civilized nations." The Custom or Marrying Brothers and Sisters in Eotet. The strange custom of mirrj ing brother* and sisters was not uncommon in Egyjt in ncr most enlightened da^s. And the marriage of Osiris and Isi , the revered deities of Egypt, who were also brother and Mster, is suppose I to have given peculiar authority agd aanciiy to this practice. "Many individuals, among the priesthood of early Phnr"nic p M-ioJs, are found, from the sculptures of Thebes, to havL- :narri?d their sisters ; and tbe same authorities agree Wi.hthe accounts of ancient Greek and Roman writers, in proving t'uut some of the Ptolemies adopted this ancient custom." Phis custom doubtless prevailed among the people of Abraham, who alto married his sister, and said of his wife, "And yet indeed she is my sister : she is the daughter of pv fatlier, but not the daughter of my mother : and she became my wife." The Athenians, likewise, who "were a colony of the Saites, which came out of Egypt,1 are said to have adopted the Eg) ptisn custom of marrying brother and sister ; and the connection of Jupiter and Juno, who were reportedj to be brother and sister, was no doubt derived from the fabulous account ?f Osiris and Isis. Herodotus says, that before Cambyces, "no Persian had ever been known to marry his sister ; but he, being passionately fond of one of his, married the sister h? loved, and not long afterward a lecond. Tin" younger or these, who accompanied him to Egypt, he put to death." Many of the modern Egyptian* do not avail themielvea ef the full extent of their religious license, which allows them four wive* ; and iitill more dispcnie with the addition of (iave? and concubine*. Some, for the sake of domestic peaco, or other reason*, content tbewalTt* with one or two wire*, and keep no alave* or concubine* at all. Other* prefer to keep one or more female *lave?, and di*penic with the wore expensive establishment of the wive* a.t*<ether. ?

PptunMrKT or WoMrn t* Snvrx ron AocLTtav. Mr. Laneiav* : ' 1 once saw a woman paraded through the *treet* of Cairo, and afterwar I taken down to the Nile to he drowned, for having apo?f?tized from the faith of Mohimmed, ar.d having married a ChrWtian. Unfortunately, a blue cross which she had tattoood oj, hor arm, led to her detection by one of her former frier,d?, i.i a b-Uh. She wa* mounted upon a high (addled as?, *uch i* la.ii'r' in Bgyiit u*iiallv ride, and very re*pectfully d.ew.'l, a*twnded by soldiers, and surrounded ny ? rabb'c, who, In*teadof ro.nmisnrating, uttered loud I'mprecntion* against her. The ckiJee, who passed *entence upon her, exhorted her, In vain, to return to her former faith. Her own father wa* hor accuaerShe wa* taken tn a boat to the E NE NE midst of the river, stripped nearly naked, strangled, and then thrown into the stream." Detected Infidelity seldom meets h punishment less fearful that awaits the lair delinquent in religious laith. As four Moslem witnesses, ho wevei'.lrc required to bringthis serious charge effectually home to the unfaithful spouse, the Egyptian ladies are seldom found otherwise than pure, legally shaking, in regard to all breaches of faithfulness " tow ard their lords. The requisition of four eye-wilnrtsei, to establish a chargc of unfaithfulness, is said to have been decreed by the prophet, to meet an accusation of that kind brought against his own wife. She was consequently honorably absolved from punishment; and subsequent "revelation*" cleared her character Irorn e ery malicious stain that had settled U|>on it through the vile' calumniators of her fair name. Such a law may appqar to be extraordinary ; but 1 suppose it was promulgated by the prophet on pretty much the same principle that actuated tne Pope of Rome under somewhat similar circumstances, perhnps, wherein sixtvfour witnesses were required to convict a cardinal of adultery?a law which was sure to keep the cardinal quite above suspicion.

An hour alter sunrise, the governor ofCairo, attended by other great officers of state, arrives and alights at a large tent in front of the dam. The ckadee is nUo present. He draws up a document testifying to the fact of the Nile's having attained afutlicient height to justify the opening ofthe canal, and of its having been accomplisht:'. Ihis instrument, being signed and sealed, is despatched with all haste to the Grand Seignior at Constantinople. The governor throws purses of gold to the w orkmen ; the water rushes into the can.il, bearing upon its troubled bosom numerous boats filled with happy beings rejoicing, intothecity. The lake of Ezbekeeyeh, within the walls of Cairo, being filled with water, the metrojiolitaiis pass the night upon it* borders, in bathing, and other amusements. The women, who elsewhere are luperstitiously exact in concealing their faces !rom the sight of men", expose their persons to the passengers and idlers on the banks in a surprising manner. The Egyptians have always looked upon their inestimable river with extreme veneration. To it the rountrv is indebted for all its fertility. Indeed, Egypt in the fullest sense is the " gift of the Nile." Therefore, when they hove a " full Nile," the country resounds with rejoicings ; tlie people are then happy in the prospect of an abundant harveit. Jn accordance with the custom of tlio ancients, the height of the Nileduring the increase of it' wuteri is ilail v proclaimed Vy public crier* ; and the Nileomrters, although the Pacha possesses almost the entire soil of the country, now subserve the important ends for which Ihey were originally constructed. An old law exempting the people frcm paying the land-tax, unless the river rises to the height of sixteen cubits, is so far respectcd, that the criers of the Nile, under the sanction of government, dailyproclaim the increase of the waters. Nileomrters were very early established, and it was unlawful for the inhabitants to measure the height of the inundation | consequently the Nileometera being strictly in the hands of the public authorities, the river rarely failed to reach the tax-sanctioning height of sixteen cubiU.

But the women, who ha> e been found guilty of a crimu so revolting, seldom escape the utmost rigour of the law. Their nearest relatives are often their accusers and executioners! When aKellah is tound to have heeu unfaithful to her hnstiand, in general his or her brother throws her into the Nile, with a stone tied to her neck , or cuts her in pieces, and then throws her remains into the river. In most instances, also, a father or brother punishes in the same manner aft unmarried daughter or sister who has been guilty of incontinence. 'Ihrse relatives are considered more disgraced than the husband by the crime of the woman. and are often despised if they do not thus punish her." It i? also provided that unmarried people convicted of this offence, be punished by scourgh.g with one hundred stiipes.

To the fertilizing influences of the inundation, and the judicious mode of irrigation adopted by the ancients, Egypt was indebted for the almost incredible productions of its soil. The dikeK und canals, like those ol Holland at the present day, were cons.dered great national works ; they received the must scrupulous care of government, ami While they restrained the redundant waters, they at the same time served the purpose of roads, over which the country was traversed in all directions. The great lake of Maris, " four hundred and fifty miles in circumference and two hundred cubits deep," was constructed to relieve the country from the evils of too copious an intimidation, and to supply the deficiencies of a partial overflowing of the plains. "For six months," says Herodotus, "the lake empties itself into the Nile, and the remaining six the Nile supplies the lake. It is entirely the product o( human industry, which indeed the work testifies : for in its centre may be seen two pyramids, each of which is two hundred cubits above, and as many beneath the water. Upon the summit of each is a colossal statue of marble, in a sitting attitude." The pyramids have disappeared, and the lake is now scarcely fort) leagues in circimlerence. The horizontal wheel now in use in Lower Egypt f?r raiding the water liomtlie Nile, was not intro luctd till after the country was subjugated by the Persians. The simple pole and bucket, or shadoof, of the modern Egyptians swung upon the banks of the Nile forty centuries ago ; and the Fellahs have u tradition that this contiivance has descended to them from their I'haraonic pre cessors. The Persian wheel, as it is called, was formerly much more generally in use than it is at present. In consequence of a tav of fifteen dollars per annum which is laid ujion each, its use is nearly abandoned in Wpper Egypt, and the primitive shadoof adopted in its stead. The appearance of the laborers at the shadoof, who toil from sunrise till sunset for four or five cents each, is animated and picturesque. The accompanying cut is an illustration of these scenes on the banks of the Nile. LS OF EGYPT.

I While this anxious watching of the mountain agitated the Moslem* without, there was no little excitement existing within the walls of the seraglio. A strong competition prevailed among the Sultan's women for the honor of giving birth to the huir-appareut. There w as nearly a tie between some eight or ten of them ; or, as the English jockeys say, " they were neck and neck."

'ouutries at the present day. Newly married women were almost as strictly kept as virgins ; and by the law s of Solon, no lady cotill go out at night without a lighted torch before her chariot, or leave home ~ith more than three gar mem*. They were guarded by men, and oftentime* by old men and eunu he ; ind the secluded life they led was very simili ".it. : i ed upon female* among modern Moslems. 13..

The lenity and indulgence of the ancients did not extend *o far as to blind their eye* to palpable crimen,? hich the ladies of old Egvpt sometime* had the weakness to commit. Some of the punishments partook more of the barbarous fpeting ?hnt pervades the breast of oriental rtrlers of our time, than of the highly cultivated state of society which is supposed to have existed in Kgypt thirty- 1 five hundred years ago. Death was seldom exacted as the penalty of crime, except in cases of murder. A more common way of punishing women forthecrime of adultery, was to cut oft their noses. Whether a chastisement of such severity had the cffect to restrain cii'uc i and enforce chastity or not, all must concede that the penalty was savage in the extreme.

After we parted with Nebby, my wife and I got into the carriage with Mrs. Tirkins, who had just driven up, with two out-runners, to take us to the baths of Cleopatra and the catacombs of Alexandria. I now lor the first time witnessed a custom, which, in my subsequent wanderings, I found to be prevalent throughout the eastern cnwntriaa, and is dotihtless a very old one?that of runners by the side, or before carriages ; after the manner, I suppose, of Elijah running before the chariot of Ahab. Mrs. Firkins had two ; but I have seen as many as four, and even six of these runners attached to the skirts of a distinguished personage in the East, who never slacked the speed of his horse on account of the runners; and they, bearing the pipe, tobacco, etc., of their master, seem to endurethe fatigue of running in this way at the top of their speed, for a lonr distance, without apparent inconvenb'nce. These runner* accompany individuals on horseback, as well as in carriages.
