On the facades of the temples atE dfou orS alsette, on the slabs whicli line the exhumed palaces of Niiuroud, on the walls of ancient Thebes the capital of Egypt in her glory, our forefathers are depicted busily employed; and from these rude but spirited efforts of the ancient artists pencil and chisel, we learn the dress, the arms, the sports, the domestic and political life of the busy thousands who then lived and acted, loved and hated, strove and failed; even as the men and women of this and every other age.

There is not a trade, occupation, or anuisement, whicli distinguished them, nora natural production, whose likeness they have not transmitted to posterity, engraved upon the face of the everlasting rock. They show us the agriculturists in the field, the artificer in his shop, the cooks in the kitchen, the nobles at their banquets, the priests in the temple, the soldiers in their camp, the sportsmen with their gear hunting and fishing, the social parties at draughts and other games, and the children at their play, amusing themselves with their dolls and toys.
