Since the year , to the time of his death, Dr. Birch was year after year elected President, and but seldom during that long period of over fifteen years was he absent from the meetings. It cannot be other than a subject of congratulation to the Members that a memoir of Dr. Birch has been prepared by Mr. Wallis Budge, with notes on his Chinese studies by Professor Douglas, which will be issued shortly in the Transactions of the Society.

In this tomb there are On three of them smooth places three rows of six round pillars.

I do not know where Dr. We are reduced to suspicion and conjecture. The second argument of Dr. Brugsch, as put most ingenious, and, I confess, extremely attractive.
In proof He quotes of which assertion he "begins with the latest period. The proof of continuity It is as if one quoted the words of Pietro Bembo to prove that the "immortal gods " had been worshipped in Italy down to the sixteenth century. And there is no more reason for supposing that the Egyptian texts of the base periods are authentic one, which fails. Roman period, as illustrative of the primitive mythology. The ideas of the " Mylhe d'Horus," and even those of the far more ancient " Destruction of Mankind," betray their comparatively recent origin.
In the more recent documents we find the name of Thoth where that of Sut occurs in ancient times. The reason of this may be assigned but who can tell us why, in some copies of the th chapter of the Book of the Dead, Nephthys is written. Why the earth should be represented by a goose is an interesting question, but it is one which does not concern us at present.
Brugsch, on the other hand, etymologically connects onomatopoeia. But why, above all things, should we look for the origin of a mighty god's name in a word signifying weak, wretched, doubled up, crooked, or something of the kind? The Egyptian no'tion of a god implies the very reverse of all this. An Egyptian god is characterised. Brugsch, on the other hand, points by way of explanation to the well-known picture in which the goddess Nut as the sky is extended over Seb, who lies sprawling on the ground, doubled-up or crooked posture.

His temple is Pi Markab and Sheat in Pegasus. He rules the summer. If there is error in ceremonies, punishment comes from Mars, of which departure from his regular movement is the sign. When he comes out there will be war. This means rebellion and anarchy, sickness, death, famine, and war. If he goes back through two signs and remains there after three months, there will be misfortune, in five months there will be the arrival of troops, in seven, half the territory will be lost. Mars moves eastward through sixteen signs and then becomes stationary.
He moves back two signs during sixty days. Again he travels eastward through several tens of signs for ten months, when he appears in the west. During five months he is hidden in the sun's rays, and then appears again in the east. If they fight in accordance with his indications they prevail, if the contrary they are defeated.

The imaginary are roaming powers, supposed to move about the sky and shed maUgn influence on the world below. They may be comets or not.
In Professor Sayce's "Astronomy and Astrology of the Babylonians " the real stars mentioned by their names cannot, in most cases, be identified on acconnt of the fragmentary nature of our information on Babylonian star nomenclature. It follows that Chinese astrology may be expected to furnish, in some respects, a fuller account of Babylonian astrology than Babylon itself, in the present state of our knowledge.
One important point made plain by the Chinese documents is, that the elements in Babylonian astrology ought to be five and not four. The doctrine of four elements was Greek. That of five elements must have been Babylonian, or we should not find it so distinctly presented as it is in the Chinese astrology. The Greek fondness for four was deter- mined by the order of development in the Ionic philosophy. The first begins with the words, " Behold thy days have drawn near to the time when thou must die. But the time for the fulfilment of this sentence was only finally fixed when the Supreme Tribunal sent forth the words, " Thou shalt not pass the Jordan," The limit thus imposed upon his expectations seemed to be a slight thing in the eyes of Moses, and distressed him not ; for he said to himself, " Oftentimes have Israel sinned, and when I prayed for them the Almighty forgave them and cancelled the fulfilment of the impending decree.
I however who have never sinned, will engage in prayer, and the Almighty will surely listen to me. But a seal had been put upon the Divine sentence, and it was made irrevocable through the Supreme Name, that Moses should not enter the Holy Land, and should not bring the Israelites to their appointed destination. Moses however resolved to fast and to pray for the revocation of this judgment. He puX on sackcloth, covered himself with ashes and stood in prayers at fifteen difterent times.
The earth, a witness of this appeal, was seized with trembling, and all created things became afraid that the Almighty was about to change the face of the world. And there came a voice from above which proclaimed, "The end of the world has not arrived, but He who dwells in Heaven, and who holds in His hand the souls of all the living, decides the destiny of the spirit of all flesh. No angel should present the prayers; for when the decree of death was once signed, it could not be altered. All the chiefs in the supernal regions were then hurried along, and were ordered to close the gates against the prayers of Moses.
Jellinek in his " Beth Ilamidrash," Vol, L. Concerning such an occurrence of terror Ezekiel said, " I heard behind me a voice of commotion occasioned by the Great One. And Moses prayed, " Oh Lord of the Universe! I have witnessed their affliction ; should I not also witness their joy? In thy Law I have announced the precept which ordains, ' Thou shalt give his wages unto the labourer on the self-same day on which they are earned. I felt for Israel's sorrows, am I not to take part in Israel's happiness? My effulgence will be thy garment, My beauty thy covering, My lustre will shed purity upon thy countenance.
My sweetness will refresh thee, my charms will carry thee aloft. On my sceptre is engraven that Ineffable Name whereby I called the world into existence, and by the aid of that Name I have given thee the semblance of a divine messenger, even in this world. But this sceptre appears magnified without bounds in the world to come.
Many were the wonders and signals that I wrought through thee when Israel came forth from Egypt. For this people I rent asunder the sea, and caused manna to rain down from heaven. I sweetened the bitter waters ; I gave Israel the Law in which the affirmative commandments are equal in number to the limbs in the human frame, viz. Thy portion, oh Moses, has been sufficient ; now is the time for Joshua to take the lead of Israel. On future days Solomon, as thy disciple, shall declare in writing : ' The sun shineth forth and the sun goeth down. On the first day of the tenth month he explained the Law to the , of the people.
On the seventh day of the twelfth month Moses was destined to pass away, and a Divine Voice then was heard saying, " Mark it well within thy mind, thy life in the world lasts only this one day. Half of the day was gone. He now invited each of the tribes, and handed to them the Law and the Commandments. The choicest inscription of the Law he placed by the side of the Ark, and he admonished and exhorted every one separately, the men alone, the women alone ; and he said to them, " Be mindful and do honour to the Law and to the keeping of the Commandments.
And he took it up higher and higher into each region of the firmament. And this Law is read by the souls of the righteous on each second and fifth day of the week and on festive days. At the same time Moses conferred upon Joshua great distinction and honour in the presence of Israel, and a proclamation went forth through the camp of Israel, saying, " Come and hear the words of the new prophet who arises this day, ' All Israel come and show submis- sion unto Joshua.
Moses caused seats and benches to be prepared for the Synhedrim, the chiefs of the troops, and the priests. And Moses invested Joshua with the attire of the commanding chief, put the crown upon him, Seated him on the golden throne, and jilaced before him the Turgeman public speaker , who was to deliver addresses before Israel — and this public speaker was Caleb the son of Jephunah. Then Joshua gave utterance to the following invocation in the 42 Dec. Issue forth songs and psalmodies, ye hills of the land.
Be up and send forth praises, ye hosts of the firmament. Utter songs and recount the passing events, all ye sons of Jacob. Send out songs, ye store- houses of Israel. Let the words enter all hearts, and let the souls accept with gladness the commandments of your God. Put forth speech and ascribe glory to the Lord your God who delivereth you. Make acknowledgment before your Sovereign, and put in Him your trust ; for He is One, and there is no second by His side.
There is none hke unto Him among the gods ; there is none His equal among the angels ; there is none like Him among the lords. His praise has no end; His miracles are unsearchable; His deeds are unaccountable. He keepeth unto us the oath sworn unto our fathers. He maintaineth for us the covenant and the mercy which is revealed unto us through our teacher Moses, through whom we were marvellously redeemed and carried from servitude unto freedom. For us the sea was rent asunder, and unto us commandments were given. From the first day of the eleventh to the sixth day of the twelfth month, that is, the day before his death, Moses, true to his character of humility, paid his homage to Joshua, and waited upon him as a disciple would wait on his master, in order to show to the people that Joshua had assumed the reins of government over Israel, and that Moses himself had resigned his high position.
Now every individual Israelite was seized with sorrow and trembling, and Joshua himself wept, and he said, "How cometh such greatness and such honour unto me? Moses set forth the Law, and Joshua expounded it. They were still engaged in giving this instruc- tion to the people, when a preternatural voice was heard, saying, " Thou hast only four hours to live ; " and Moses prayed, " Oh Lord of the Universe, give me power by means of Thine Ineffable Name to pass throiigh the air or the water in order that I may cross Dec.
Let me be borne along on the wings of the clouds, that I may behold the Promised Land! Again there came a mysterious voice and proclaimed, " Fret not, as thou hast only three more hours to live on this earth. And Michael, the guardian angel of Israel, wept when he beheld the Angel of Death waiting for the last breath of Moses.
Then came the parting hour, and Moses prayed, saying, " Permit me, Oh Lord, to be like a bird that flitteth through the four quarters of the world gathering sustenance, imbibing drink from the river, and returning at eventide to its nest. But all creation in the heavens and on earth declared to him the feeble- ness of their estate. Then he called Joshua, and said to him, " My son, I deliver up to thee the people of the Lord ; their babes are as yet innocent and untaught ; never say anything before them that is not fitting to be said in the presence of God's children.
When it was announced to Moses that his life was now measured by seconds, he took a scroll and wrote upon it the Divine Name, and the book of Jashar : then he handed the scroll to Joshua, upon whose head he places his hands. And Joshua's eyes became dimmed with tears, so that he could not behold his master. Moses now lost the power of teaching, and the mysterious voice exclaimed before the people, " Henceforth take instruction from Joshua, and from him carry the instruction further; he is henceforth your leader. Amongst them was Zagzagel, who 44 Dec. But he saw inscribed the Ineffable Name of the Almighty, he saw fiery sparks issuing from the lips, and a wondrous lustre from the countenance of Moses, who shone like the sun and appeared to be like an angel of the heavenly hosts.
Then the Angel of Death became stricken with terror. Moses, turning his eye towards that angel, asked " Who sendeth thee unto me? I was brought into existence with every sign of a true child of Israel, and was endowed with speech at my birth. My mother was recompensed even for the milk with which she nursed me. From the days of my childhood I was made a prophet, being destined to receive the Law; I wrested the crown from the head of Pharaoh. At the age of eighty I wrought signs and miracles ; sixty myriads of Israelites I led out of Egypt. For them I cleft the sea, making twelve paths.
I sweetened the waters. I cut from the rock the tablets of stone, and took them up into the firmament of the heavens. Face to face I spoke unto the Lord of the Universe. I prevailed over powers that sought to rival me in the supreme regions. It was I who received the Law. Under the dictate of Him who inspired me I wrote the Commandments, and enforced them by my teachings. I over- came the giants who since the flood had continued their pre- dominance. I determined the movements of the sun and moon in their orbits. I have been the mightiest of men.
Thou rebellious angel, for whom there is no peace, begone! But he said, " I may deepen Gehenna into a lower depth ; but over the son of Amram I cannot prevail. Before him I cannot stand. His face beameth like that of a seraph in the heavenly chariots. His countenance shines with divine radiance. With eagerness thou didst go forth ; yet when thou didst behold the greatness of tliat man, thou didst shrink back with dismay. His soul, however, shall be brought home. With that staff Moses touched the Angel of Death, and with a rebuke put him to flight.
The lustre of counte- nance had not yet departed from Moses, when for the last time the mysterious voice rang forth, exclaiming, " The end of thy time hath come. Moses resigned himself to that merciful rule. Thus he followed the guidance of the Almighty. Three angels, Michael, Zagzagel, and Gabriel came to meet him, smoothing his couch for him to lie down, and they placed themselves at his right side, at his left side, and at the foot. By the heavenly command he clasped his hands and closed his eyes. And the Almighty called the soul, saying unto it, " My daughter, one hundred and twenty years were appointed for thee to abide in the body of this righteous man.
Tarry no longer here, Thou hast arrived at thy destination. And thou shalt be placed with Me by the throne of My glory, where Seraphim and Ophanim, and Angels and Cherubims are enthroned. He had proclaimed the knowledge of the Lord in the heavens above and on the earth beneath, and he had established that testi- mony, through which he surpassed every other prophet in Israel.
Therefore he received the high praise which crowneth the conclusion of the Divine Law. The following Communication has been received from Professor Wright : — Among the objects from Cyprus exhibited during the past summer at the Colonial Exhibition were two bilingual inscriptions, Phoenician and Cypriote, the property of Colonel F. Warren, R. The longer and better preserved of these has been translated and published by the well known archaeologist M. Pierides, though without the Phoenician text. Colonel Warren's preface to this little pamphlet 8 pages small 8vo.
Pierides' readings have been reproduced, with some valuable critical remarks, by Dr. Deecke in the Berliner Philologische Wocheiischrift for 16th October, , which has been kindly sent to me by my friend Professor Euting. The Phoenician text, in six lines, reads as follows. May he bless him. The Cypriote text, in five lines, I give according to M. Pierides' reading, with one correction in the first line made by Professor Sayce and Dr. This Dr. Deecke transcribes as follows.
Deecke wrongly identifies with the "Heb. In the Corpus Liscriptt. Xrtf'ov, of A7nycl r, in Lacedaemon. He adds however toe. TO 6A0S, to which the name might possibly be referred. The smaller of Colonel Warren's two bilinguals is not nearly so well preserved, especially as regards the upper or Phoenician portion. I have sent a squeeze of it to Professor Euting, who will no doubt succeed in deciphering it with Dr. Deecke's help.
I made out enough to show that it is a monument of the same kind as the one just explained, and belonging to the same reign. Queens' College, Cambridge, 15 December, Renouf sends the following: — With the help of the Cypriote Syllabary published by Dr. Deecke in the seventh volume of the Studien of Curtius, I had already deciphered the second inscription of the bilingual tablet, when I was informed by Professor Wright that Deecke had published a transcription and version of the text in the Berliner Fhilologische Wochetiscrift of the i6th of last October.
On referring to that journal, I found that the transcription made by Pierides was exactly what I had expected. It was however accompanied by some very valuable notes which are necessary in order to under- stand the difference between the Phoenician and the Cypriote texts. The following is the Cypriote inscription when printed in the type cut for the publications of the Society of Biblical Archaeology.

The following were nominated as candidates for Member- ship of the Society : — Rev. I CANNOT commence this Report without referring to the grievous loss suffered by the Society, in common with the world of science, by the lamented death of our distinguished President, Dr. It must never be forgotten, that as its principal founder he had not only from his position as President, but as the best friend to its interests and welfare, by his varied scholarship, unfailing industry and watchful care, done all that was in his power to carry forward the work for which the Society was founded.
Since the year , to the time of his death, Dr. Birch was year after year elected President, and but seldom during that long period of over fifteen years was he absent from the meetings. It cannot be other than a subject of congratulation to the Members that a memoir of Dr. Birch has been prepared by Mr. Wallis Budge, with notes on his Chinese studies by Pro- fessor Douglas, which will be issued shortly in the Transactions of the Society. It will include a portrait, and as complete a bibliographical list of his works as could be collected by Mr.
In the last Report presented to the Society, read at the Anniversary Meeting held on the 12th of January, , the total number of Members on the Roll was announced as It will perhaps be well and more convenient to class the papers with the communications for which the Society has been indebted to various authors. To commence with the Anniversary Meeting, Dr.
John P. Peters discussed the date claimed for a boundary stone of Nebuchad- nezzar I, an account of which was presented to the Society by Mr. Pinches and Mr. Pinches from the cylinder in the British Museum November 7th, William Simpson gave some noteworthy suggestions as to the origin of the Mesopotamian Tower Temples ; a number of carefully prepared diagrams were exhibited in illustration, which it is the intention of the Council to reproduce in a future number of its publications.
Professor Hommel, at the meeting held on the 6th April, announced his suggestion that the Babylonian hero Gish-du-barra was to be identified with the Biblical Ninn-od. In the same number of the Proceedings, Professor J. Oppert gives an interesting and valuable list of the weights and measures as they are written in cuneiform. To Mr. Pinches we were indebted June ist for the following in- teresting and valuable notes upon Assyriological matters. VI, pp. Houghton's paper printed in the Transactions, Vol. VIII, pp. The Rev. Joseph Edkins, U.
But we can only hope that the cessation of these works, so interesting and at the same time really valuable to students of Bible History, is only temporary, and that at no very distant period the excavations will be resumed on a larger and more exhaustive scale, so that the still hidden treasures of the mounds may not continue to remain unknown. The papers dealing with Egyptian antiquities have been both numerous and valuable.
To commence with those printed in the Proceedings of January 12 : Professor Lieblein writes on the 2 Kings vii, 6, and the Egyptian title per m hru. Professor Aug. Eisenlohr gives some new ' information on the How inscriptions, one of which was mentioned by Professor Sayce in the Proceedings oi June, Professor Eisenlohi adds full copies of the inscriptions, which are given in a plate.
To Dr. Wiedemann the Society has been indebted for a number of communications, for the most part, besides original matter, dealing with antiquities an account of which has not been before published. A paper from M. The same author June ist discusses the name of the Egyptian god commonly called Khem. The valuable communications of Mr. The communications of Mr. Wallis Budge have not been confined to Hieroglyphics. H, Ingram, Esq. Also an interesting paper from the same writer November , entitled. This paper will be printed, with illustrations, at a future time.

From the same author we have received an account of some new Kypriote Inscriptions discovered by Dr.
It must always be a subject of satisfaction to the. Society to be the 58 Jan. From the same author we have December an account, with translation, of a bilingual inscription, Phoenician and Cypriote, with which is printed a communication from Mr. Renouf on the same inscription.
To continue the papers bearing upon and connected with Hebrew antiquities : Professor Gaster, in a paper read at the March meeting, presented to the Society the translation of a version of the Apocalypse of Abraham, preserved in the Slavonic and Roumanian languages, and discovered by the translator. Louis continued his series of interesting papers in one entitled Ancient Traditions of Supernatural Voices Bath-Kol , which resulted in a letter from the Rev.
Some books, as the funds at their disposal for this purpose would allow, the Council have purchased for the Library as seemed necessary ; but it has been to the kindness of many friends that the Society has been indebted for valuable donations, not only of their own works, but those of other authors. Much however still requires to be done in order to make the library more complete in the series of works bearing on the various countries, the antiquities and history of which are included in the objects of the Society.
It cannot be too often pointed out that the Library is for the use of the Members, and that duplicate copies, or other works no longer required by the possessor, will be gratefully received, and be of real service to those who have neither the time nor opportunity to seek elsewhere for the information they require.
A short note by Mn Robert Brown, jun. Budge, with an illustration, in the November Proceedings. In the above summary of the work done by the Society during the year 1 , I have, as already stated, classed the shorter communications 59 Jan. It must not be forgotten that each number of the Pj-oceedings is sent as issued every month during the session to all the Members of the Society, thus supplying those who are unable to be present at the meet- ings with information of what has been done, and placing them as nearly as possible in the same position as those vvho are able to attend.
Year by year the quantity of material thus circulated has gone on increasing, and it is very gratifjang to consider that through the kindness of many friends, who have thus placed at the disposal of the Members the result of their researches, this portion of the publications of the Society — commenced in with 81 pages has now reached pages. The first Part of Vol.
IX of the Transactions is in the press ; it will be issued as soon as possible, and will contain the following papers, with illustrations : Memoir of Samuel Birch, LL. Part I. Part III. Remarks and Observations on Dr. Birch's Chinese Labours, by Professor R. Notes on the Antiquities from Bubastis in the collection of F. Le Cham et I'Adam egyptiens, par E. The President, Mr. Walter Morrison, on retiring from the chair, has kindly presented to the Society the sum of fifty pounds, towards the illus- tration of the various papers printed in the publications of the Society.
The above Report and Statement of Receipts and Expenditure were adopted. Canon Beechey proposed, and Mr. Hyde Clarke seconded, a vote of thanks to Mr. Walter Morrison for having so well presided over the Society during the past year, and for having kindly marked his retirement from that office by so substantial a donation to the funds.
