AN ARTICLE FROM DR. ROBINSON. We have received a highly interesting article from Professor Robinson, prepared for the Řepository, on the Dead Sea, and the Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.” It came to hand too late for insertion in the present No., and will appear in our next. Dr. Robinson is now in Berlin, where he has been for several months past, diligently engaged in the preparation of his work on Palestine; the MS. of which was nearly completed, July 24. The London edition will probably be published in course of the coming winter. It will be accompanied by a new and complete map of the Holy Land, corrected from the notes of Dr. Robinson and Mr. Smith, by Prof. Berghaus, Foreign Hon. Member of the Royal Geographical Society of London, who is perhaps the most distinguished map-maker in the world.-In an article, extracted from the “London Geographi. cal Journal," which has just reached us, Prof. Berghaus remarks. “In the course of my life I have had in my hands many documents in reference to geographical, and especially cartographical objects, and from them have acquired the conviction that, among

all oriental travellers since the time of Niebuhr, the prize is due to the late lamented Burckhardt, so far as it respects minute attention, even to things apparently indifferent, and also accuracy in the measurement of bearings and angles, and in the specification of time for the determination of distances.

“ This view, however, I must now essentially modify, after having carefully examined the Journals of Messrs. Robinson and Smith. The observations of these two travellers are so full and comprehensive, their notes upon the form and the features of the country so exact and definite, that the geographer is in a situation, on the basis of these specifications, to construct a special map of the territory, which may perhaps leave little more to be desired.”

DR. NORDHEIMER'S CONCORDANCE. Dr. Nordheimer and Mr. W. W. Turner have issued proposals for publishing by subscription a Complete Hebrew and Chaldee Concordance of the Old Testament, with an Introduction and Appendices. It will embody all that is essential in the Concordance of Dr. Fürst, (which is now in the course of publication in Germany,) and will doubtless surpass all works of the kind within the reach of American scholars generally. It will be issued in seven parts, at one dollar each, making the price of the whole work to subscribers $7. Five hundred subscribers are required to authorize the undertaking.
