Transcript DAMASCUS. 4i3 ornamented with gold and silver thread, numerous tassels, and bits of gaily- coloured leather; and the pistol-holsters, and whatever pertains to the outfit, are showy in the extreme. Not less interesting are the blacksmith shops where die horses are shod. The shoes are of one piece, with a small hole an inch in diameter near the back part of the shoe. The plate of iron is turned a little at the edge, forming a sharp rim, which, when new, serves as a calk. Three nails on each side, with very large heads, fasten the shoe to the hoof. The heads of these nails also serve as calks. Shoes made in this manner protect the foot much better amonof the sharp stones and rocks than our horseshoes would ; and, besides, they are far less liable to be torn off. Damascus has also its pastry-cooks and confectioners, who furnish sweetmeats, jellies, and certain drinks, which, if they cannot praised in any other respect, are certainly cool. Snow from Lebanon, which regarded as a special lux"ry. is used in preparing them' and lemonade cooled "THE STREET CALLED STRAIGHT." It runs westward from the East Gate, dividing the Christian from the Jewish quarter. The Mohammedans call it " The Sultan's Highway."
