One important result of the inter state act is noticed by Wool Consumers in the Boston Market tue new rates for trans Continental transportation it appears Are so High As to entirely exclude California Wool exported by and it remains a matter of serious doubt whether it can the Cost of transportation by any other route. But this is not a matter of Surprise. The express intent of the act As was constantly avowed by its most ardent supporters was to require the railways to adjust their through rates in comparatively close correspondence with the rates charged for Short distances. The longer the through transportation the greater change in rates must necessarily be produced in this readjustment. The roads Between new York and san Francisco wherever they move freight from one state into another Are required by the provisions of the act to charge not less for the through than for the local traffic and this provision if not altogether set aside in the interpretation of the act must of necessity make rates for through transportation so High As to be virtually prohibitory with respect to the movement of Many articles. It May be reasoned that this was not intended by Congress and probably it was not the intention of the Senate. Senators plainly stated in debate that the phrase a a under like circumstances and conditions a with which the Long and Short haul provisions were by the Senate modified was intended to leave a certain elasticity in making rates for Long distance transportation. But the interpretation Given to the Bill in the House was precisely the opposite one and it was held y the most Earnest advocates of the measure and is to Day maintained by them that rates ought to be proportioned to distance and that the traffic which cannot exist under such provisions ought not to exist at new York Tribune. The Sidon disc Oversea. The following letter was last week addressed to the editor of the London times a a a sir a the Rev. Or. Henry Jessup sends me the following note from the Rev. W. K. Eddy As a supplement to his previous letter which appeared in the times of March 30tb. Professor Porter and Bis companion were not permitted to take photographs of the Sarcophagi but he reports that the workmen in Clearing out the do Bris from the Bottom of the Shaft uncovered a pavement. Beneath this pavement was found a huge sarcophagus of the Phi Nicias or egyptian Type not unlike the famous one of Shalma Nezer but without inc rations. Beshara Effendi c.e., is excavating a Tunnel for the removal of the sculptures to the sea Shore with a View to their shipment to constantinople. Or. Jesup adds a later note from or. Eddy who says a the labourers Are still excavating and As they go deeper they uncover other Sarcophagi so that the total number is now sixteen. The last seven i have not been Able to see but All Descry ions indicate that they Are of phoenician or egyptian it is now Clear from the information to hand that the discovery at Sidon will prove of surpassing interest. The Sidonia treasures Are in a fair Way to be lost. Legally the turks have a right to do what they please with the sculptures but 1 think they might be induced to let them remain where they Are. The Cost of guarding and preserving the tombs in Situ might be covered by a Small fee for admission and Sidon would become a new Centre of attraction. I have the Honor to be yours faithfully a weight British and foreign Bible society 146, Queen Victoria Street London. A the Western door led into a Small room from which we passed by a South West door to another chamber where there were four Sarcophagi three of White Marble and More or less ornamented with vines Etc. The Large Tomb is about 12ft. Long 5ft. Wide and 4ft. High to the eaves and 2ft. To the Ridge. This far exceeds All other Sarcophagi seen before. Professor Porter of the american College in Beirut says that he saw nothing to equal it in the collection at Athens and very Little in sculpture finer anywhere. The excellence consists in Richness of ornament Force of the passions expressed the variety of the costumes depicted the freshness of the painting of the costumes the fineness of the polish and the great variety of subjects represented. The main features Are Battles. Two classes of warriors Are represented soldiers with Casque helmets tunics Greaves and Short swords. Some wore flowing cloaks painted red but their tunics were Blue eyes also painted Blue. These were mostly mounted on horses. The other class of soldiers had a Peculiar headdress a peaked Cap with tassels and a cloth wrapped about the sides of the head and also across the face below the the rest of the costume was scanty. The upper part of the sarcophagus was loaded with ornaments. There were four Beautiful Lions on the Corners. The tiles were not Fiat but curved and also hollowed somewhat like leaves. Had the tiles been Flat the round edges would have suggested Scales of fish. The line of the base of the slope had on it at intervals human Heads with a surrounding of leaves out of which they seemed to peer. Below on the Edge of the eaves was a Row of Stags Heads with horns. On the main body of the sarcophagus there was first a Row filled with geometrical figures below a receding Cornice of cup and Almond or fruit of some kind then a strip of exquisite Vine tracery with the background painted below a fierce Battle the and dying horses rearing and plunging a very spirited and vigorous representation. On the other Side a Hunting scene a Hunter barbarian stands up with outstretched arms having just discharged an Arrow a Man on horseback As if thrusting with a Spear then in front another horseman and a lion has fastened upon the neck of his horse. The nostrils of the horse Are dilated and the skin is wrinkled above the .
