Transcript MOUNT SINAI. across it, intersected by cracks, which are said to be twelve in number, and to be the mouths from which the water flowed for the twelve tribes. It has for many hundred years been an object of reverence both to Christian pilgrims and to Arabs; and though evidently a trick of nature, which has originated a legend, and through the legend a sacred locality, it cannot be viewed without deep interest. At the foot of Ras Sufsafeh, a hole in a rock is pointed out as the mould in which Aaron cast the Golden Calf; and at the mouth of the convent valley stands a low hill, on which the calf is said to have been placed. These, and many other spots, are objects of the deepest reverence to monks and pilgrims; but, to us, Mount Sinai itself calls forth a feeling of religious awe, which seeks not to localise individual incidents, but throws a halo of sanctity over all.
