Holland. In a marsh, in the duchy of Limburg, a wooden bridge, 1250 ells long, and about three ells ad, has been discovered. The principal beams are as hard as stone, but the cross-beams are completely decayed. They are covered with an unctuous mass, supposed to have been a kind of cement.
Marshal Soult has appointed a Commission charged to draw up and prepare for publication a grammar and dictionary of the Berber or Kabyle language. It has hitherto been supposed that the various dialects of Africa were more or less corruptions of the old Arabic. This error has now been satisfactorily removed. They bear no similitude either to the Arabic, the Coptic, or the Hebrew, though a few Arabic roots have been admitted into them.--In the Royal Library at Paris, a Bohemian manuscript was lately discovered, containing several theological essays by John Huss.
Xtaly. A work of some importance to the scientific world has just been published, namely, a description of all the obelisks of Rome, accompanied by as complete an explanation as the recent discoveries relative to the Hieroglyphics of Egypt permitted.
