(now Acre). The latest description of this formerly memorable place is given by Lieut. Conder (Tent Work in Palestine, 1, 188 sq.), from which we extract the following particulars: "Acre is a walled town with a single gate on the south-east. Its trade is now much reduced, and the bazaars are deserted; the richest inhabitant is not worth £1000. The appearance of the town outside is picturesque; with brown walls, a tower on the rock in the sea, (called El-Manara), yellow stone houses, with two higher buildings, roofed with red tiles and green shutters; above all, the huge white mosque of Jezzar Pasha, a square building, with a dome and a graceful minaret, surrounded by palms, and with chambers for the students, covered by rows of little round domes; behind this, the modern fortress, on the site of the old crusading castle."
