Page  [unnumbered] PREFACE. THE text of Livy, though handed down by the manuscripts in an imperfect and unsatisfactory state, has been in a great degree rescued and restored by the critical labors of many illustrious philologists, Foremost are the great names of JOHN FREDERICK GRONOV and JOHN NICHOLAS MADVIG; but around them clusters a brilliant array of scholars hardly inferior to these great chiefs, among whom Crevier, Drakenborch, Kreyssig, Bekker, Alschefski, Haupt, Hertz, and above all Weissenborn, cannot pass unmentioned. The work of an editor is made both easier and more difficult by so many and such guides: easy indeed when stars of the first magnitude shine in conjunction, but hard sometimes when they are opposed. There is, it is true, one in this list, whom a man might follow even with his eyes shut, and feel assured that he would never be led far astray. The unrivalled sagacity with which the great Danish philologist scents out the true reading in a tangled maze of hopeless obscurity is one of the marvels of our later day.. It is hard to resist the fascination of such genius; yet, with due diffidence, I may say that in sonme cases I have been less certain that the words MADVIG gives are those which Livy actually wrote, than that they are the best. possible expression in Latin of the thought Livy wished to convey. No man for the last thousand years has been a more

It is possible, however, that they did not always write as well as they ought. They had a share of the same freedom of composition, and the same liability to careless oversight, as our own writers, though in less degree; and we must allow them, perhaps, an occasional solecism. Furthermore-pace tanti viri dixerinin — there are cases sometimes where a higher law than, formal grammatical regularity rightly asserts itself, and offence itself is glorious. But this by no means in extenuation of the merits of the greatest of living critics, and still less to cast upon him the slightest imputation of narrow pedantry; it is only my excuse for daring sometimes to differ from one who has done more for the emendation of the text of Livy than all other scholars put together. Next to Madvig, I am indebted for; my text particularly to the editions of Weissenborn, Hertz, and Alschefski. The grounds of my preference among different readings have, in some of the most important cases, been stated in the notes, so far as the special purposes of this edition seemed to permit. As regards the forms of words, I have not hesitated, in spite of the objections of sciolists,.to adopt' for the most part that " new orthography'- which is'the old. WAith Hertz, too, as well as after the great example of Munro in his Lucretius, I have followed the'e some extent in giving different forms -:fo::th:same word in- different. places..-Muinro

Page  VII PREFACE. vii contends that such was the practice of the old writers themselves. This course has some advantages in an edition designed for students habituated to the conventional orthography of the grammarians, and is perhaps safest while some questions remain unsolved. It is my conviction, however, that the final result of' scholarly investigation in this field will be the adoption of a uniform orthography for each age or each author, with the exception of occasional variation in a few forms, which, like hath and has in English, can be proved to have stood side by side. The convenience of students has been consulted in indicating i consonans and u consonans by the characters so long appropriated to that purpose. In the Notes it has been my aim, as it was in my editions of Horace and Virgil, to give such aid as is most necessary and most useful for students in our colleges and schools. Credit is given to various scholars whose labors have been helpful. Two of these deserve special acknowledgment,-Weissenborn, for his commentary on all the, books, and Seeley for his notes on the First. Professor Seeley's "Historical Examination of Book First." deserves the careful study of every scholar. I have appended to this edition the page and a half in which he sums up the result of his examination, trusting that many who read it will be induced to follow its able author in the exhaustive investigation by which he arrives at these conclusions.

Page  VIII LIVY AND HIS HISTORY OF ROME. TITUS LIVIUS was a few years younger than Virgil and Horace, but older than Propertius and Ovid, with whom he shines in the brilliant constellation of genius which adorns the Augustan age. He was born probably in the year 59 or 57 B. C., at Patavium, now Padua, which in his day was a populous and-wealthy city, while famed at the same time for strictness of morals. Livy was probably of an equestrian family; bred and living in that middle rank which is so favorable for the development of character and talent. There is some reason to believe that he was a teacher of rhetoric. He wrote books on philosophy,.and also dialogues, partly historical and partly philosophical. He enjoyed the friendship of Augustus, and it was his counsel which induced the emperor's grandson, Claudius, - who was afterwards emperor,-to apply his attention to the writing of historical works. An instance of Livy's celebrity is mentioned by Pliny (Epist. ii. 3), who tells us that a Spaniard travelled from Gades to Rome solely for the purpose of seeing the author of the great Roman history, and returned as soon as he had satisfied his curiosity. The historian died in his native city, A. D. 17. The first decad (or ten books) of Livy's "colossal history" appears to have been written between the years 27 and 20 B. C. The whole work consisted, it has been supposed, of one hundred and.forty-two books, covering the whole period from the foundation of the city till the year-9 B. C.; but Niebuhr suggests that the author probably intended to complete fifteen decads, but died before he could accomplish his object. "His purpose in undertaking it was to draw, with all the charms which his artistic skill and delicate taste could give, a complete picture of the history of the Roman people, and of the laudable or blameworthy peculiarities of its prominent personages, that he might inflame the patriotic feelings of his countrymen, and contribute to the instruction and entertainment of the world at large. Livy generally looks at, an historical event or character from a moral point of view: he wishes to excite our;admiration of the great, love of the good, and' viil

Page  IX LIVY AND HIS HISTORY OF ROME. ix hatred of the bad; he feels a proud pleasure in describing the power of the Romans, or the purity of manners by which they were at first distinguished; and the history of the early ages of the state seems to have consoled him for the wickedness and wretchedness which he had seen and felt during the civil wars. His conservatism, and habitual admiration of the olden times above the modern, merely because they were the olden times, are exhibited in the early parts of his work, especially in his description of the contests between the patricians and plebeians. Livy's partiality to the patricians may well be blamed; his conservatism, however, never led him to wink at cruelty or baseness, or to conceal or knowingly misstate.facts." Truth he held as a sacred thing. At the same time he was strangely wanting in that careful, laborious research, and that skill in weighing and sifting evidence, which are among the foremost requisites of the historian. He took such.materials as came to hand, founding himself especially upon the. annalists, contenting himself with purging them of their absurdities; and arranging their best matter in an attractive form. Where they disagreed, he endeavored to decide between them " with the judgment of a man of sense," but not by any well-ascertained philosophical principles of historical criticism. " However turbid the current of his information, in no case did he ever dream of ascending to the fountainhead. He never attempted to test the accuracy of the assertions of others by examining ancient monuments, or investigating the antiquities of the various Italian tribes." He seems, moreover, to have performed his task piecemeal, without taking a broad and comprehen-: sive view of his whole subject. In the history of the kings, he followed Ennius. With Polybius he was unacquainted until after he had related the first half of the Punic war; -throughout the fourth decad, however, he. adheres very closely to that "incomparable" authority. Of the details of the geography even of his own country, he betrays a singular ignorance, which greatly impairs the va.lue of his narrative. In a simply literdry point of view, however, Livy's composition is almost faultless. His narrative " flows on in a calin but strong current, clear and sparkling but deep and unbroken; the diction displays richness without heaviness, and simplicity without tameness. Nor is his art as a painter less wonderful. There is a distinctness of outline and a warmth of coloring in all his delineations, whether of living men in action, or of things inanimate, which never fail. to call up the whole scene, with all its adjuncts, before our eyes." Upon the whole, looking at the work both in its external and internal characteristics, we may well say to students of Livy, in the words of Niebuhr (Lectures i.

Page  X X LIVY AND HIS HISTO-RY OF ROME. 296), "You cannot study his work too much, both as scholars, and as men who seek and love that which is beautifull. His faults, which we cannot deny, are like the faults of a bosom friend, which we must know but towards which we ought not to be unjust, and which ought not to disturb our feelings." The first book, and some portions of the second Punic war, are, in Niebuhr's judgment, the most beautiful portions of the whole work. Unrortunately, the larger part of this great history is no longer extant. We have the first, third, and fourth decads, and half of the fifth, -thirty-five books, - with a fragment of book ninety-first. We possess,: however, summaries of all the books but two, which, though dry and meagre, are yet valuable as in some instances our sole authorities for important facts. The peculiarities of Livy's style, as distinguished from Cicero and Caesar, are grouped by Grysar under the following heads: 1. Freer use of words. 2. Poetic diction. 3. Peculiarities of syntax. 4. Grecisms.'5. Bolder constructions. 6. Structure of the sentence. 1. Taking materials from old chronicles and (in the history of the kings) from Ennius, he easily adopted their forms of expression: hence archaisnls and sometimes pleonasm. 2. D6derlein calls Livy an imitator of Virgil; and certainly he uses many words which, while found in the poets, are never met with in the older prose writers. The.poetic coloring of his style appears also in the use of simple verbs for compound, in his fondness for the neuter adjective as substantive both with and without an added genitive, in various poetical constructions (as quid tsur0res loquor, instead of de turrmibus), and in the frequency with which he introduces tropes and metaphors. 3. It is a peculiarity of Livy's syntax to use the genitive with the verb sum. to signify participation in something or that to which anything serves. The latter idea he often expresses by the dative of the gerundive. His use of the dative instead of the ablative with a or of the accusative with ad, is not particularly frequent. The neuter of the perfect passive participle often stands alone in Livy in the ablative absolute. The aoristic use of the perfect indicative instead of the pluperfect, and of the perfect subjunctive instead of the imperfect, is common to Livy, Nepos, Sallust, Tacitus, and other historians. More exceptional is Livy's frequent use of the infinitive instead of the subjunctive, not only in indirect questions, but also in the oratio obliqua. This use, however, is donfined to passages in orations which Livy puts in the mouth of another person. He uses sometimes the infinitive for the gerund, partiCelafly after temipuss occasioi consilium,. The construction Qf the par

Page  XI LIVY AND H"IS HISTORY OF ROME. xi tides prope and paene with the verb is much more common with Livy than with other writers. HIe uses the participles with unusual frequency and boldness; 4. (Before proceeding to the fourth head, I cannot forbear remarking that the term "Grecivsms" is- used by Grysar in somne cases too freely, as it has also been unnecessarily employed by many grammar:ans, to indicate constructions which are as natural and idiomatic in Latin as -in Greek. (See Greenough on'Ihe Latist Subjunctive, p. 15.) It is true, however, that such constructions were often developed and extended from the influence of Greek writers; and a pure Grecism is occasionally found.) Among Livy's Grecisrns, Grysar numbers the adjective use of participles (in Greek preceded by the article), as adhortatio invicesnl; ad exploranda cirea loca; the connection ofintransitive verbs with abstract substantives derived from them; the use of collective nouns with a plural verb; the free use both of the genitive to show the respect in which the signification of an adjective is taken, and of the accusative of specification; the use of the participle for an abstraet substantive, as degeneiatum int aliis i. 53)-; freedom in attraction, as raptim, quibuzs quisque poterat, elatis (i. 29); and finally various Greek modes of expression, as quid utt (va ri), extra quzlansi (EKra; at #b), cUm eo uIt (ai", rsOia&E), and qua-ttm pro (J Klnr or } 7rpba) after a comparative, as xxi. 29 and 32: which last construction is never found in Cicero or Caesar, though often in Tacitus. 5. Livy's conlstructions are often bold and poetical, sometimes perhaps too evidently artificial. 6. He sometimes inserts too many short clau/ives, to the injury of the symmetry and clearness of the sentence. To sum up, Livy appears, in accordance with the taste of his age, to have departed somewhat from the simplicity and strength of' earlier writers, and to have sought to add a charm to his style by novelty and greater freedom of expression. I subjoin Zumpt's statement of the distinction between the styles of Livy and Cicero: "This difference is principally to be found in Livy's frequent introduction of poetical words and constructions into his prose: e. g. temepestas for tenmpus, miortales for honines, letulnt for lnex, degere for vivere,, or oyei)e svitanm, qite-qute for et-et; further, in the use of the mere ablative without the preposition in, to express place' where;' in the pleo. nastic employment of adverbs, with compound verbs, to strengthen the meaning of the preposition contained in the verb; e. g. prius praeci-. pere, ante praeoccutpare, retro repetere, rltrstus repetere, retro redire, pergere porro, indulcere exercitsm in agrulmz hostilnt; in collective nouns in the singular being connected with a predicate in the plural: e. g. oomnisi multitdeo' abeent t in gesl tttrba circsunrftusifrmeneba t; clntamor concuisusqu'

Page  XII Xii LIVY AND HIS HISTORY OF ROME. popttli, mirantiumn quid ei esset; Ronoanorltm milwus mille intexfecti; and lastly, in the use of quams for magis quaen; e. g. ipsorltn quanm'Hannibalis interesse. There are other variations between the language of Livy and that of Cicero, which, however, must be attributed to, and are indeed proofs of, the progressive development of Latin syntax. We may mention, as one of these, the use of the future participle active in a hypothetical sense; for example (xxiii. 44), deditauris se Hannibrali son fulisse crcessentdun Roinlantum prmssidiumn -- that is,'if they had been intending to give themselves up to Hannibal,' etc." There has been much idle speculation as to what that "Patavinity" was, with which, as Quintilian tells us, Livy was reproached by the celebrated orator, historian, and poet, Asinius Pollio. Livy's style had its peculiar characteristics,- and one of them - his fondness for poetical forms and constructions - might easily be censured by a lover of classicosimplicity. But it has been in all ages a cheap and easy-device, whenever the accident of birth allows it, to stigmatize whatever does not please one's own taste with the charge.of provincialism.

Decreverunt enim, ut, cum populus regem jussisset, id sic ratum esset, si patres auctores fierent. 20 Hodie quoque in legibus nmagistratibusque rogandis usurpatur idem jus, vi adempta: priusquam populus suffragium ineat, in incertum comitiorum eventum patres auctores fiunt.

Adeo id gratum plebi fuit, ut, ne victi beneficio viderentur, id modo sciscerent juberentque, 30 ut senatus decerneret, qui Romae regnaret. - XVIII.

Suopte igitur ingenio temperatum ani- 5 mum virtutibus fuisse opinor magis, instructumque non tam peregrinis artibus, quam disciplina tetrica ac tristi veterum Sabinorum, quo genere nullum quondam incorruptius fuit. Audito nomine Numae patres Romani, quamquam 10 inclinari opes ad Sabinos rege inde sumpto videbantur, tamen neque se quisquam nec factionis suae alium nec denique patrum aut civium quemquam praeferre illi viro ausi, ad unum omnes Numae Pompilio regnum deferendum decernunt. Accitus, 15 sicut Romulus augurato urbe condenda regnum adeptus est, de se quoque deos consuli jussit. Inde ab augure, cui deinde honoris ergo publicum id perpetuumque sacerdotium fuit, deductus in arcem, in lapide ad meridiem versus consedit. Augur ad 20 laevam ejus capite velato sedem cepit, dextra manu baculum sine nodo aduncum tenens, quem lituum appellarunt. Inde ubi, prospecti in urbem agrumque capto, deos precatus regiones ab oriente ad occasum determinavit, dextras ad meridiem partes, laevas 25 ad septemtrionem esse dixit; signum contra, quoad longissime conspectum oculi ferebant, animo finivit; turn, lituo in laevam malium translato, dextra in caput Numae imposita, precatus ita est: "Juppiter pater, si est fas hune Numam Pompilium, cujus ego 30 caput teneo, regem Romae esse, uti tu signa nobis certa adelarassis inter eos fines, quos feci." Turn peregit verbis auspicia, quae mitti vellet; quibus missis declaratus rex Numa de templo descendit. XIX.

Tum sacerdotibus creandis animum adjecit, 30 quamquam ipse plurima sacra obibat, ea maxime quae nunc ad Dialem flaminem pertinent. Sed quia in civitate bellicosa plures Romuli quam Nuinae similes reges putabat fore, iturosque ipsos ad bella, ne sacra regiae vicis desererentur, flaminem Jovi 35 adsiduum sacerdotem creavit, insignique eum veste et curuli regia sella adornavit.

Ad haec consultanda procurandaque multitudine omni a vi et armis conversa, et animi aliquid 25 agendo occupati erant, et deorum assidua insidens cura, cum interesse rebus humanis caeleste numen videretur, ea pietate omnium pectora imbuerat, ut fides ac jusjurandum proximo legum ac poenarum metu civitatem regerent. Et cum ipsi se homines in 30 regis, velut unici exempli, mores formarent, turn finitumi etiam populi, qui antea castra, non urbemn positam in. medio ad sollicitandam omnium pacem crediderant, in eamrn verecundiam adducti sunt, ut civitatem totam in cultumr versamr deorum violare 35 ducerent nefas. Lucus erat, quem medium ex opaco sp'ecu fons perenni rigabat aqua: quo quia se persaepe Numa sine arbitris velut ad congressum deae inferebat, Camenis

Multa alia sacrificia locaque sacris faciendis, quae Argeos pontifices vocant, dedicavit. Omnnium tarnen maximum ejus operum fuit tutela per omne regni 10 tempus haud minor pacis quam regni. Ita duo deinceps reges, alius alia via, ille bello hic pace, civitatem auxerunt; Romulus septem et triginta regnavit annos, Numa tres et quadraginta. Cum valida turn temperata et belli et pacis artibus 15 erat civitas. XXII. Numae morte ad interregnum res rediit. Inde Tullum Hostilium, nepotem Hostili, cujus in infima arce clara pugna adversus Sabinos fuerat, regem populus jussit; patres auctores facti. Hic non1 20 solurn proximo regi dissimilis, sed ferocior etiam, quam Romulus foit. Cum aetas viresque tum avita quoque gloria anirnum stimulabat. Senescere igitur civitatem otio ratus undique materiam excitandi belli quaerebat. 25 Forte evenit, ut agrestes Romani ex Albano agro, Albani ex Romano praedas invicem agerent. Imperitabat tum Gaius Cluilius Albae. Utrimque legati fere sub idem teinpus ad res repetendas missi. Tullus praeceperat suis, ne quid prius quam mandata age30 rent; satis sciebat, negaturum Albanum: ita pie bellum indici posse. Ab Albanis socordius res acta; excepti hospitio ab Tullo blande ac benigne, comi fronte regis convivium celebrant. Tantisper Romani et res repetiverant priores et neganti Albano bellum 35 in tricesimumn diem indixerant. H[aec renuntiant Tullo. Tum legatis Tullus dicendi potestatem, quid petentes venerint, fecit. Illi omnium ignari primum purgando terunt tempus: se invitos quicquam, quod

Page  39 LIBER I, 22-23. 39 minus placeat Tullo, dicturos, sed imperio subigi: res repetitum se venisse, ni reddantur, bellum indicere jussos. Ad haec Tullus "nuntiate" inquit "regi vestro, regem Romanurn deos facere testes, uter prius populus res repetentes legatos aspernatus 5 dimiserit, ut in eurn omnes expetant hujusce clades belli." XXIII. Haec nuntiant domum Albani. Et bellum utrimque summa ope parabatur, civili simillimum bello, prope inter parentes natosque, Trojanaml 10 utramque prolem, cum Lavinium ab Troja, ab Lavinio Alba, ab Albanorum stirpe regum oriundi Romani essent. Eventus tamen belli minus miserabilem dimicationem fecit, quod nec acie certatum est, et, tectis modo dirutis alterius urbis, duo populi in unum 15 confusi sunt. Albani priores ingenti exercitu in agrum Romanum impetum fecere. Castra ab urbe t/' haud plus quinque milia passuum'locant, fossa circumdant: fossa Cluilia ab nomine ducis per aliquot saecula appellata est, donec cum re nomen quoque vetus- 20 tate abolevit. In his castris Cluilius, Albanus rex, moritur, dictatorem Albani Mettium Fufetium creant. Interim Tullus, ferox praecipue morte regis, magnumque deoruim numen, ab ipso capite orsum, in omne nomen Albanum expetiturum poenas ob bellurn 25 impium dictitans, nocte praeteritis hostium castris, infesto exercitu in agrum Albanum pergit. Ea res ab stativis excivit Mettium. Ducit quam proxume ad hostem potest. Inde legatum praemissum nuntiare Tullo jubet, priusquam dimicent, opus esse colloquio; 30 si secum congressus sit, satis scire, ea se allaturum, quae nihilo minus ad rem IRomanam quam ad Albanam pertineant. Haud aspernatus Tullus, tametsi vana adferri rebatur, in aciem educit. Exeunt contra et Albani:' 35 Postquam instructi utrimque stabant, cum paucis procerum in medium duces prodeunt. Ibi infit Albanus: "injurias et non redditas res, ex foedere quae repetitae sint, et ego regem-nostrum Cluilium causam

Page  40 4Q TITI LIVI AB VRBE CONDITA hujusce esse belli audisse videor, nec te dubito, Tulle, eademr prae te ferre: sed si vera potius quam dictu speciosa dicenda sunt, cupido imperii duos cognatos vicinosque populos ad arma stimulat. Neque recte 5 anperperam interpretor; fuerit ista ejus deliberatio, qui bellum suscepit. Me Albani gerendo bello ducem creavere.

Haud displicet res Tullo, quamquam. cum indole animi tum spe victoriae ferocior erat. Quaerentibus utrimque ratio initur, cui et 20 fortuna ipsa praebuit materiam. XXIV. Forte in duobus tum exercitibus erant igemini fratresj nec aetate nec viribus dispares: iolraftios Curiatiosque fuisse satis constat, nec ferme res antiqua alia est nobilior; tamen in re tam clara 25 nominum error manet, utrius popui Horatii, utrius Curiatii fuerint. Auctores utroqie trahunt: plures tamen invenio, qui Romanos Horatios vocent; hos ut sequar, inclinat animus. jgCum trigeminis agunt regesj ut pro sua quisque 30 patria dimicent ferro: ibi umperium fore, unde victoria fuerit.

Tum ita factum accepimus, nec ullius vetustior foederis memoria est: fetialis regem Tullum ita rogavit: "jubesne me, rex, cum patre patrato

Fetialis erat M. Valerius; is patrem patratum Spurium Fusium fecit, verbena caput, capillosque tangens. Pater patratus ad jus juranium patrandum, id est 10 sancienidum fit -foedus; multisque id verbis, quae longo effata carinle non operae est referre; peragit. Legibus deinde recitatis, " audi," inquit, "Juppiter,' audi, pater patrate populi Albanij audi tu, popullus Albanus: ut illa palam prima postrema ex illis 15 tabulis ceAVe recitata sunt sine dolo mal-o, utique ea hic hodie rectissime intellecta sunt, illis legibus populus Romranus prior non deficiet.

Nec his nec illis periculum suum, —publicum imperium servitiumque obversatur animo, futuraque ea deinde patriae fortuna,.quam ipsi fecissent. - Ut primo statim concursu increpuere arma mican5 tesque fulsere gladii, horror ingens spectantis perstringit, et neutro inclinata spe torpebat vox spiri-.tusque. Consertis deinde manibus, cum jam non motus tantum corporum agitatioque anceps telorurn armorumque, sed vulnera quoque et sanguis specta10 culo essent, duo Romani super alium alius, vulneratis tribus Albanis, exspirantes corruerunt. Ad quorum casum cum conclamasset gaudio Albanus exercitus, Romanas legiones jam spes tota, nonadum tamen cura deseruerat, exanimes vice unius, 15 quem tres Curiatii circumsteterant. Forte is integer fuit, ut universis solus nequaquam par, sic adversus singulos ferox. Ergo ut segregaret pugnam eorum,.capessit fugam, ita ratus secuturos, ut quemque vulnere adfectum corpus sineret. Jam aliquantum 20 spatii ex eo loco, ubi pugnaturm est, aufugerat, cum respiciens videt magnis intervallis sequentes, unum haut procul ab sese abesse. In eum magno irnpetu rediit; et dum Albanus exercitus inclamat Curiatiis, uti opem ferant fratri, jam Horatius, caeso hoste vic25 tor, secundam pugnam petebat. /! Tune clamore, qualis ex insperato faventium solet,:Romani adjuvant militem suum, et ille defungi proelio festinat. Prius itaque quam alter, qui nec procul aberat, consequi posset, et alterum Curiatium 30 conficit. Jaimque aequato Marte singuli supererant, sed nec spe nec viribus pares. Alterum intactum ferro corpus et geminata victoria ferocem in certamen tertium dabat; alter, fessum vulnere, fessum cursu trahens corpus, victusque fratrum ante se 35 strage, victori obicitur hosti. Nec illud proelium fuit. Romanus exsultans "duos" inquit "fratrum manibus dedi, tertium causae belli hujusce, ut Romanlus Albano imperet, dabo." Male sustinenti arma gladium superne jugulo defigit, jacentem spoliat.

Page  43 LIBER I, 26. 43 Romani ovantes ac gratulantes Horatium accipiunt eo majore cum gaudio, quo prope metumn res fuerat. Ad sepulturam inde suorum nequaquam paribus i! animis vertuntur, quippe imperio alteri aucti, alteri dicionis alienae facti. Sepulcra extant quo quisque 5 loco cecidit, duo Romana uno loco propius Albam, tria Albana Romam versus, sed distantia locis, ut et pugnatume est. XXVI. Priusquamn inde digrederentur, roganti Mettio, ex foedere icto quid imperaret, imperat Tul- 10 lus; uti juventutem in armis habeat; usurum se eorum opera, si bellum cum Veientibus foret. Ita exercitus inde donlos abducti. Princeps Horatius ibat, trigernina spolia prae se gerens; cui soror virgo, quae desponsa uni ex Curiatiis fuerat, obvia ante portamn 15 Capenam fuit, cognitoque super umeros fratris paludamento sponsi, quod ipsa confecerat, solvit crines et flebiliter nomine sponsum mortuum appellat. Movet feroci juveni animum conploratio sororis in victoria sua tantoque gaudio publico. Stricto itaque gladio, 20 simul verbis increpans, transfigit puellam. "Abi hinc'cum inmaturo amore ad sponsum," inquit, "oblita fratrum morituorum vivique, oblita patriae.'Sic eat, quaecumque Romana lugebit hostem." Atrox visum id facinus patribus plebique, sed 25 recens meritum facto obstabat. Tamen raptus in jus ad regem. Rex, ne ipse tam tristis ingratique ad vulgus judicii ac secundum judicium supplicii auctor esset, concilio populi advocato, "duumviros," inquit, "qui Horatio perduellionem judicent, secundum 30 legem facio." Lex horrendi carminis erat: "duumviri perduellionern judicent; si a duumviris provocarit, provocatione certato; si vincent, caput obnubito, infelici arbori reste suspendito, verberato vel intra pomerium 35 vel extra pomerium." Hace lege duumviri creati, qui se absolvere non rebantur ea lege ne innoxium quidem posse, cum condemnassent, turn alter ex his "Publi Horati, tibi perduellionem judico" inquit.

Page  44 44 TITI LIVI AB VRBE CONDITA " Lictor, conliga manus." Accesserat lictor iniciebatque laqueum. Tum Horatius, auctore Tullo, clemente legis interprete, "provoco" inquit. Itaque provocatione certatum ad populum est. 5 Moti. homines sunt in eo judicio maxime Publio Horatio patre proclamante, se filiam jure caesam judicare; ni ita esset, patrio jure in filium animadversurum fuisse.

I, lictor, conliga.manus, quae paulo ante armatae imperium populo Romano pepererunt, i, caput obnube liberatoris urbis hujus, arbore infelici suspende, verbera 20 vel intra pomerium, modo inter illa pila -et spolia hostium, vel extra pomerium, modo inter sepulcra Curiatiorum.

Igitur ut prius in bello pacem, sic in pace bellum quaerens, quia suae civitati animorum plus quam virium cernebat esse, ad bellum palam atque ex edicto gerundum 5 alios concitat populos, suis per speciem societatis proditionem reservat. Fidenates, colonia Romana, Veientibus sociis consilii adsumptis; pacto transitionis Albanorum ad bellum atque arma incitantur. Cum Fidenae aperte descissent, Tullus, Mettio 10 exercituque ejus ab Alba accito, contra hostes ducit. Ubi Anienem transiit, ad confluentis collocat castra. Inter eum locum et Fidenas Veientium exercitus Tiberim transierat. Hi et in acie prope flumen tenuere dextrum cornu; in sinistro Fidenates propius 15 montes consistunt. Tullus adversus Veientem hostem derigit suos; Albanos contra legionem Fidenatium conlocat. Albano non plus animi erat quam fidei. Nec manere ergo nec transire aperte ausus sensim ad montes succedit; inde, ubi satis subisse sese ratus est; 20 erigit totam aciem, fluctuansque animo, ut tereret tempus, ordines explicat. Consilium erat, qua fortuna rem daret, ea -inclinare vires. Miraculo primo esse Romanis, qui proxumi steterant, ut nudari latera sua sociorum digressu senserunt; inde eques citato 25 equo nuntiat regi, abire Albanos. Tullus in re trepida duodecim vovit Salios, fanaque Pallori ac Pavori. Equitem clara increpans voce, ut hostes exaudirent, redire in proelium jubet; nihil trepidatione opus esse; suo jussu circumduci Albanum exercitum-, 30 ut' Fidenatium nuda terga invadant; item imperat, ut hastas equites erigerent. Id factum mnagnae parti peditum Romanorum conspectum abeuntis Albani exercitus intersaepsit; qui viderant, id quod ab rege auditum erat rati, eo acrius pugnant. 35 Terror ad hostes transit: et audiverant clara voce dictum, et magna pars Fidenatium, ut qui coloni additi -Romanis essent, Latine sciebant. Itaque, ne subito ex collibus decursu'Albanorum interclude

Nec illi tulere impetum, sed ab effusa fuga flumen objectum ab tergo arcebat. 5 Quo postquam fuga inclinavit, alii arma foede jactantes in aquam caeci ruebant, alii, dum cunctantur in ripis, inter fugae pugnaeque consilium obpressi. Non alia ante Romana pugna atrocior fuit. XXVIII. Tumrn Albanus exercitus, spectator cer10 taminis, deductus in campos. Mettius Tullo devictos hostes gratulatur, contra Tullus Mettium benigne adloquitur. Quod bene vertat, castra Albanos Romanis castris jungere jubet, sacrificium lustrale in diem posterum parat. Ubi inluxit, paratis omnibus, 15 ut adsolet, vocari ad contionem utrumque exercitum jubet. Praecones, ab extremo orsi, primos excivere Albanos.. Hi, novitate etiam rei moti, ut regemn Romanurn contionantem audirent, proximi constitere. Ex conposito armata circunldatur Romana legio; 20 centurionibus datum negotium erat, ut sine mora imperia exsequerentur. Tum ita Tullus infit: "Romani, si umquam ante alias ullo in bello fuit, quod primum dis inmortalibus gratias ageretis, deinde vestrae ipsorumn virtuti, hes25 ternum id proelium fuit. Dimicatum est enim non magis cum hostibus, quam, quae dimicatio major atque periculosior est, cum proditione ac perfidia sociorum. Nam, ne vos falsa opinio teneat, injussu mleo Albani subiere ad montes, nec imnperium illud 30 meum, sed consilium et imperii simulatio fuit, ut nec vobis, ignorantibus deseri vos, averteretur a certamine animus, et hostibus, circumveniri se ab tergo ratis, terror ac fuga iniceretur. Nec ea culpa, quam arguo, omniuln Albanorum est: ducem secuti sunt, ut et vos, 35 si quo ego inde agmen declinare voluissem, fecissetis. Mettius ille est ductor itineris hujus, Mettius foederis Romani Albanique ruptor. Audeat deinde talia alius, nisi in hunc insigne jam documentum mortalibus dedero."

Page  47 LIBER I, 28-29. 47 Centuriones armati Mettiumn circumsistunt; rex cetera, ut orsus erat, peragit: "quod bonumrn faustum felixque sit populo Romano ac mihi vobisque, Albani, populum omnem Albanum Romam traducere in animo est, civitatem dare plebi, primores in patres legere, 5 unam urbem, unam rem publicam facere; ut ex uno quondam in duos populos divisa Albana res est, sic nunc in unum redeat." Ad haec Albana pubes, inermis ab armatis saepta, in variis voluntatibus communi tamen metu cogente, silentium tenet. Turn 10 Tullus "Metti Fufeti," inquit, "si ipse discere posses fidem ac foedera servare, vivo tibi ea disciplina a me adhibita esset; nunc, quoniam tuum insanabile ingenium est, at tu tuo supplicio doce humanuml genus - ea sancta credere, quae a te violata sunt. Ut igitur 15 paulo ante animum inter Fidenatem Romanamque rem ancipitem gessisti, ita jam corpus passim distrahendumn dabis." Exinde duabus admotis quadrigis,;in currus earum distenturn inligat Mettium; deinde in diversum iter 20 equi concitati, lacerum in utroque. curru corpus, qua inhaeserant vinculis membra, portantes. Avertere omnes ab tanta foeditate spectaculi oculos.

Nec 5 mirari oportet, hune ordinem, qui nune est post expletas quinque et triginta tribus, duplicato earum numero centuriis juniorum seniorumque, ad institutarn ab Servio Tullio summam non convenire. Quadrifariam enim urbe divisa regionibus -collibusque, 10 qui habitabantur, partes eas tribus appellavit, ut ego arbitror, a tributo; nam ejus quoque aequaliter ex censu conferendi ab eodem inita ratio est; neque eae tribus ad centuriarum distributionem numerumque quicquam pertinuere. 15: XLIV. Censu perfecto, quem maturaverat metu legis de incensis latae curn vinculorum minis mortisque, edixit, ut omnes cives Romani, equites peditesque, in suis quisque centuriis, in campo Martio prima luce adessent. Ibi instructum exercitum omnem 20 suovetaurilibus lustravit, idque conditum lustrum appellatum, quia is censendo finis factus est. Milia octoginta eo lustro civium censa dicuntur; adicit seriptorum antiquissimus Fabius Pictor, eorum, qui arma ferre poss$nt, eum numerum fuisse. 25 Ad eam multitudinem urbs quoque amplificanda visa est. Addit duos colles, Quirinalem Viminalemque; inde deinceps auget Esquilias, ibique ipse, ut loco dignitas fieret, habitat. Aggere et fossis et muro circumdat urbem; ita pomerium profert. Pomerium, 30 verbi vim solam intuentes, postmoerium interpretantur esse; est autem magis circamnoeriurn, locus, quem in condendis urbibus quondam Etrusci, qua murum ducturi erant, certis circa terminis inaugurato consecrabant, ut neque interiore parte aedificia moenibus 35 continuarentur, quae nunc vulgo etiam- conjungunt, et extrinsecus purl aliquid ab humano cultu pateret soli. Hoc spatium, quod neque habitari neque arari fas erat, non magis quod post murum esset quam

Aucta civitate magnitudine urbis, formatis omnibus domi et ad belli et ad pacis usus, ne semper armis opes acquirerentur, consilio augere imperium conatus est, sirnul et aliquod addere urbi decus. Jam tum erat inclitum Dianae Ephesiae fanum. Id coni10 muniter a civitatibus Asiae factum faina ferebat. Eum consensum deosque consociatos laudare mire Servius inter proceres Latinorum, curn quibus publice privatimque hospitia amicitiasque de industria junxerat. Saepe iterando eadem perpulit tandem,.15 ut Romae fanumn Dianae populi Latini cum populo Romano facerent. Ea erat confessio, caput rerumn Romam esse, de quo totiens armis certatum fuerat. Id quamquam omissum jam ex omniun cura Latinorum ob rem totiens infeliciter temptatam armis 20 videbatur, uni se ex Sabinis fors dare visa est privato consilio imperii recuperandi. Bos in Sabinis nata cuidamn patri familiiae dicitur miranda magnitudine ac specie; fixa per multas aetates cornua in vestibulo templi Dianae monumentum ei fuere miraculo. 25 Habita, gt erat, res prodigii loco est, et cecinere vates,'cuju~ civitatis eam civis Dianae immolasset, ibi fore imperium; idque carmen pervenerat ad antistitem fani Dianae. Sabinus, ut prima apta dies sacrificio visa est, boverm, Romam actam, deducit ad 30 fanum Dianae. et ante aram statuit. Ibi antistes " Rornanus, cum eum magnitudo victimae celebrata farna movisset,, memor responsi, Sabinum ita adloquitur: "quidnam tu, hospes, paras?" inquit, "inceste sacrificium Dianae facere? Quinl tu ante vivo 35 perfunderis flumine? infima valle praefluit Tiberis." ReligiQne tactus hospes, qui omnia, ut prodigio responderet eventus, cuperet rite facta, extemplo descendit ad Tiberim; interea Romanus immnolat Dianae bovem. Id mire gratum regi aitque civitati fuit.

Servius quamquam jam usu haut dubium regnum possederat, tamen, quia interdum jactari voces a juvene Tarquinio audiebat, se injussu populi regnare, conciliata prius voluntate plebis agro capto ex hostibus viritim diviso, ausus est ferre ad populum, 5 vellent juberentne se regnare; tantoque consensu, quanto haud quisqiuam alius ante, rex est declaratus. Neque ea res Tarquinio spem adfectandi regni minuit; immo eo inpensius, quia de agro plebis adversa patrum voluntate senserat agi, criminandi Servii 10 apud patres crescendique in curia sibi occasionem datam ratus est, et ipse juvenis ardentis animi et domi uxore Tullia inquietum animum stimulante. Tulit enim et Romana regia sceleris tragici exemplum, ut taedio regum maturior veniret libertas, ulti- 15 mumque regnum esset, quod scelere partum foret. Hic L.'l'arquinius (Prisci Tarquini regis filius neposne fuerit, parum liquet; pluribus tamen auctoribus filium ediderim) fratrem habuerat Arruntem Tarquinium, mitis ingenii juvenem. His duobus, ut 20 ante dictum est, duae Tulliae, regis filiae, nupserant, et ipsae longe dispares moribus. Forte ita inciderat, ne duo violenta ingenia matrimonio jungerentur, fortuna, credo, populi Romani, quo diuturnius Servi regnum esset constituique civitatis'mores possent. 25 Angebatur ferox Tullia, nihil materiae in viro neque ad cupiditatem neque ad audaciam esse; tota in alterum aversa Tarquinium eum mirari, eum virum dicere ac regio sanguine ortum; spernere sororem, quod, virum nacta, muliebri cessaret audacia. Con- 30 trahit celeriter similitudo eos, ut fere fit malum malo aptissimum; sed initium'turbandi omnia a femina ortum est. Ea secretis viri alieni adsuefacta sermonibus, nullis verborum contumeliis parcere, de viro ad fratrem, de sorore ad virum; et se rectius viduam et 35 illum caelibem futurum fuisse contendere, qua-m cum inpari jungi, ut elanguescendum aliena ignavia esset. Si sibi eum, quo digna esset, dii dedissent virum, domi -e prope diem, visuramn regnum fuisse, quod 6 -- Liv,.

Ita Lucius Tarquinius et Tullia minor, prope continuatis funeribus cum domos vacuas novo matrimonio fecissent, junguntur nuptiis, magis 5 non prohibente Servio quam adprobante. XLVII. Tumrn vero in dies infestior Tulli senectus, infestius coepit regnum esse. Jam enim ab scelere ad aliud spectare mulier scelus; nec nocte nec interdiu virum conquiescere- pati, ne gratuita 10 praeterita parricidia essent: non sibi defuisse, cui nupta diceretur, nec cum quo tacita serviret; defuisse, qui se regno dignum putaret, qui meminisset, se esse Prisci Tarquini filium, qui habere quam sperare regnum mallet. "Si tu is es, cui nuptam esse 15 me arbitror, et virum et regem appello; sin minus, eo nunc pejus mutata res est, quod istic cum ignavia est scelus. Quin accingeris? Non tibi ab Corintho nee ab Tarquiniis, ut patri tuo, peregrina regna moliri necesse est; di te penates patriique et patris 20 imago et domus regia et in domo regale solium et nomen Tarquinium creat vocatque regem. Aut si ad haec parum est animi, quid frustraris civitatem? quid te ut regium juvenem conspici sinis? Facesse hinc:Tarquinios aut Corinthum-; devolvere retro ad 25 stirpem, fratris similior quam patris." His aliisque increpando juvenem instigat, nec conquiescere ipsa potest, si, cum Tanaquil, peregrina mulier, tantum moliri potuisset animo, ut duo continua regna viro ac deinceps genero dedisset, ipsa, regio semine orta, 30 nullum momentum in dando adimendoque regno faceret.

Id ipsum tam mite ac tam 20 moderatum imperium tamen, quia unius esset, deponere eum in animo habuisse quidam auctores sunt, ni scelus intestinum liberandae patriae consilia agitanti intervenisset. XLIX. Inde L. Tarquinius regnare occepit, cui 25 Superbo cognomen facta indiderunt, quia socerumn gener sepultura prohibuit, Romulum quoque insepultum perisse dictitans, primoresque patrum, quos Servi rebus favisse credebat, interfecit; conscius deinde male quaerendi regni ab se ipso adversus se 30 exemplum capi posse, armatis corpus circumsaepsit; neque enim ad jus regni quicquam praeter vim habebat, ut qui neque populi jussu neque auctoribus patribus regnaret. Eo accedebat, ut in caritate civium nihil spei reponenti metu regnum tutandum 35 esset. Quem ut pluribus incuteret, cognitiones capitalium rerum sine- consiliis per se solus exercebat, perque eam causam occidere, in exilium agere, bonis multare poterat non suspectos modo aut invisos, wed unde nihil aliud quam praedam sperare posset,

Page  69 LIBER i, 49-50. 69 Praecipue ita patrum numero inminuto, statuit nullos in patres legere, quo contemptior paucitate ipsa ordo esset minusque per se nihil agi indignarentur. Hic enim regum primus traditum a prioribus morema de omnibus senatum consulendi solvit; do- 5 mesticis consiliis rem publicam administravit; bellumrn, pacem, foedera, societates per se ipse, cum quibus voluit, injussu populi ac senatus, fecit diremitque. Latinorum sibi maxime gentem conciliabat, ut 10 peregrinis quoque opibus tutior inter cives esset, neque hospitia modo cum primoribus eorum, sed adfinitates quoque jungebat. Octavio Mamilio Tusculano (is longe princeps Latini nominis erat, si famae credimus, ab Ulixe deaque Circa oriundus), 15 ei Mamilio filiam nuptum dat, perque eas nuptias multos sibi cognatos amicosque ejus conciliat. L. Jam magna Tarquini auctoritas inter Latinorum proceres erat, cum in diem certam, ut ad lucum Ferentinae conveniant, indicit; esse, quae 20 agere de rebus cornmunibus velit. Conveniunt frequentes prima luce; ipse Tarquinius diem quider servavit, sed paulo ante quam sol occideret venit. Multa ibi toto die in concilio variis jactata sermonibus erant. Turnus Herdonius ab Aricia ferociter in 25 absentern Tarquinium erat invectus:'haud: mirum esse, Superbo inditum Romae cognomen' (jam enim ita clam quidem-mussitantes, volgo tamen, eum appellabant);'an quicquam superbius esse quam ludificari sic omne nomen Latinum? Principibus longe a 30 domo excitis, ipsum, qui concilium indixerit, non adesse. Temptari profecto patientiam, ut, si jugum acceperint, obnoxios premat. Cui enim non apparere; adfectare eum imperium in Latinos? Quod si sui- bene crediderint cives, aut si creditum illud, et 35 non raptum parricidio sit, credere et Latinos, quamquam ne sic quidem alienigenae, debere; sin suos ejus paeniteat, quippe qui alii super alios -trucidentur, exulatum- eant; anmittant bona, quid spei melioris

Is finis orationi fuit. Aversi omnes ad Tarquinium salutandum; qui, silentio facto, monitus a proxumis, ut 10 purgaret se, quod id temporis venisset,'disceptatorem ait'se sumptumi inter patrem et filium, cura reconciliandi eos' in gratiamn moratum esse, et, quia'ea res exemisset illum diem, postero die acturum,'quae constituisset.

Revocatis deinde ad concilium Latinis Tarquinius conlaudatisque, qui Turnum novantem res pro manifesto0 parricidio merita poena adfecissent, ita verba fecit:' posse quidem se vetustojure agere, quod, cum omnes Latini ab Alba oriundi sint, [in] eo foe- 25 dere teneantur,.quo ab Tullo res omnis Albana cum coloniis suis in Romanum cesserit imperium; ceterum se utilitatis [id] magis omnium causa censere, ut renovetur id foedus, secundaque potius fortuna populi Romani ut participes Latini fruantur, quam urbium 30 excidia vastationesque agrorum, quas Anco prius,.patre deinde suo regnante perpessi sint, seinper aut exspectent aut patiantur.' Haut difficulter persuasum Latinis, quamquam in eo foedere superior Romana res erat; ceterum et 35 capita nominis Latini stare ac sentire curn rege videbant, et Turnus sui cuique periculi, si adversatus esset, recens erat documenturn.

Qui ubi ad edictum romnani regis ex omnibus populis convenere, ne ducem suum neve 5 secretum imperium propriave signa haberent, miscuit manipulos ex Latinis Romanisque, ut ex binis singulos faceret binosque ex singulis; ita geminatis manipulis centuriones inposuit. LIII. Nec, ut injustus in pace rex, ita dux belli 10 pravus fuit; quin ea arte aequasset superiores reges, ni degeneratum in aliis huic quoque decori offecisset. Is primus Voiscis bellum in ducentos amplius post suam aetatern annos movit, Suessanmque Pometiam ex iis vi cepit. 15 Ubi cum divendenda praeda quadraginta talenta argenti refecisset, concepit animo earn amplitudinem Jovis. ternpli, quae digna defm hominumque rege, quae Romano imperio, quae ipsius etiam loci majestate esset; captivam pecuniam in aedificationem ejus 20 templi seposuit. Excepit deinde eum lentius spe bellum, quo Gabios, T propinquam urbem, nequiquam vi adortus, cumn obsidendi quoque urbem spes pulso aimenibus adempta esset, postremno minime arte Romana, fraude ac dolo, 25 adgressus est. Nam cum, velut posito bello, fundamentis templi jaciendis aliisque urbanis operibus intentfum se esse simularet, Sextus filius ejus, qui minimus ex tribus erat, transfugit ex composito Gabios, patris in se saevitiam intolerabilem conquerens: 30'jam ab alienis in suos vertisse superbiam, et liberorumr quoque eum frequentiae taedere, ut, quam in curia solitudinem fecerit, domi quoque faciat, ne quam stirpem, ne quem heredem regni relinquat.

Sibi vero grat;un adventum ejus esse, futurumque credere brevi, ut, illo adjuvante, a portis Gabinis sub Romana moenia bellum transferatur. 15 LIV. Inde in consilia publica adhiberi. Ubi cum de aliis rebus adsentire se veteribus Gabinis diceret, quibus eae notiores essent, ipse identidem belli auctor esse et in eo sibi praecipuam prudentiam adsumere, quod utriusque populi vires nosset, sciret- 20 que invisam profecto superbiam regiamn civibus esse, quam ferre ne liberi quidem potuissent.

Equestre interim proelium commissum; in quo, quia saucius Hannibal pugna excessit, pavore hostibus injecto, 15 defensum egregie praesidium est. Paucorum inde dierum quiete sumpta, et, vixdum satis percurato vulnere, ad Victumvias oppugnandas ire pergit. Id emporium Romanis Gallico bello fuerat; munitum inde locum frequentaverant adcolae mixti undique 20 ex finitimis populis, et turn terror populationum eo plerosque ex agrs conpulerat.

Jam nona ferme- diei hora erat, cure Romanus, nequiquarn fatigato milite, postquam nulla spes erat potiundi castris, signum receptui dedit.: Quod ubi Hannibal accepit, Jaxatamque pugnam et recessum a castris vidit, extemplo equi- 10 tibus dextra laevaque emissis in hostem, ipse cum peditum robore mediis castris erupit.

Itaque acrior concursus fuit quam caedes, et, sicut aequataferine pugna erat, ita clade pari discessum est. Ab neutra parte sescentis plus peditibus et dirnidium ejus equitum cecidit; sed major Romanis quam pro nurnero jactura fuit, quia equestris ordinis 20 aliquot et tribuni militum quinque et praefecti socioruin tres sunt interfecti.

Ceterum praeda oppidi parvi preti rerum fhit, supellex barbarica ac vilium mancipiorum; castra militem ditavere, non ejus modo exercitus qui victus erat, sed et ejus qui cum Hannibale in Italia militabat, omnibus 20 fere caris rebus, ne gravia inpedimenta ferentibus essent, citra Pyrenaeum relictis.

Et sua sponte 10 apparebat tuta celeribus consiliis praepositurum, et, quo id constantius perseveraret, Q. Fabius Maximus sic eum proficiscentem adlocutus fertur: XXXIX. "Si aut conlegam, id quod mallem, tui - similemr, L.

Nune et, conlegam tuum et te talem virum intuenti mihi 20 tecum ornnis oratio est, quem video nequiquam et virum bonum et civem fore, si, altera parte claudente re publica, malis consiliis idem ac bonis juris et potestatis erit. Erras enirm, L. Paule, si tibi minus certaminis cum C. Terentio quam cum Hannibale 25 futurum censes; nescio an infestior hic adversarius quam ille hostis maneat te. Cum illo in acie tantum, cum hoc omnibus locis ac temporibus certaturus es; adversus Hannibalem legionesque ejus tuis equitibus ac peditibus pugnandum tibi erit, Varro dux tuis 30 militibus te est oppugnaturus. Ominis etiam tibi causa absit C. Flamini memoria. Tamen ille consul demum et in provincia et ad exercitum coepit furere; hic, priusquam peteret consulatum, deinde in petendo [consulatu], nunc quoque consul, priusquam castra 35. videat aut hostem, insanit. Et qui tantas jam nunc procellas proelia atque acies jactando inter togatos ciet, quid inter armatam juventutem censes facturum;et ubi extemplo res verba sequitur?

Nec gloriandi tempus adversus unum est, et ego contemnendo potius quamn adpetendo gloriam modurn excesserim; sed ita res se habet: una 5 ratio belli gerendi adversus Hannibalem est, qua ego gessi. Nec eventus modo hoc docet (stultorum iste hagister est), sed eaderni ratio, quae fuit futuraque, donec res eaedem manebunt, inmutabilis est. In Italia bellum gerimus, in sede ac solo nostro; omnia 10 circa plena civium ac sociorum sunt; armis, viris, equis, commeatibus juvant juvabuntque: id jam fidei documenturn in adversis rebus nostris dederunt: meliores, prudentiores, constantiores nos tempus diesque facit. Hannibal contra in aliena, in hostili 15 est terra, inter omnia inimica infestaque, procul ab domo, ab patria; neque illi terra neque mari est pax; nullae eum urbes accipiunt, nulla moenia; nihil usquam sui videt; in diem rapto vivit; partem vix tertiam exercitus ejus habet, quemn Hiberum amnem 20 trajecit; plures fame quam ferro absumpti; nec his paucis jam victus suppeditat. Dubitas ergo, quin sedendo superaturi simus eum, qui senescat in dies, non commeatus, non supplementum, non pecuniam habeat? Quam diu pro Gereonii, castelli Apuliae 25 inopis, tamquam pro Carthaginis moenibus sedet! Sed ne adversus te quidem de me gloriabor. Cn. Servilius atque Atilius, proximi consules, vide, quem ad mrodumr eum ludificati sint. Haec una salutis est via, L. Paule, quam difficilem infestamque cives tibi 30 magis quam hostes facient. Idem enim tui quod hostium milites volent; idem Varro consul Romanus quod Hannibal Poenus imperator cupiet. Duobus ducibus unus resistas oportet. Resistes autem, si adversus famam rumoresque hominum satis firmus 35 steteris, si te neque collegae vana gloria neque tua falsa infamia moverit. Veritatem laborare nimis saepe aiunt, extitlgui numquam. Gloriam qui spreverit, veram habebit. Sine, timidum pro cauto, tar

Et consul alter velut unus turbae nlilitaris erat; Paulus etiam atque etiam dicere, providendum praecavendumque esse; postremo,, cum aliter neque seditionem neque ducem 5 seditionis sustinere posset, Marium Statilium praefectum cum turma Lucana exploratum mittit. Qui ubi adequitavit portis, subsistere extra munimenta ceteris jussis, ipse curn duobus equitibus vallum intravit, speculatusque oinia cum cura renuntiat, in10 sidias profecto esse; ignes in parte castrorum, quae vergat ad hostem, relictos; tabernacula aperta et omnia cara in promptu relicta; argentuin quibusdarn locis temere per vias velut objectum ad praedam vidisse.

Nam cum initio fremitus, deinde aperta vociferatio fuisset exposcentium stipendium debitum querentiumque annonam 5 primo, postremo fainern, et mercennarios milites, maxime Hispani generis, de transitione cepisse consilium fama esset, ipse etiamn interdum Hannibal de fuga in Galliam dicitur agitasse, ita ut relicto peditatu omnni cum equitibus se proriperet. Cumr haec 10 consilia atque hic habitus animorum esset in castris, movere inde statuit in calidiora atque eo maturiora messibus Apuliae loca, simul ut, quo longius ab hoste recessisset, transfugia inpeditiora levibus ingeniis essent, Profectus est nocte, ignibus similiter 15 factis tabernaculisque paucis in speciem relictis, ut insidiarum par priori metus contineret Romanos.

Quam inconditam turbam cum vixdum in ripain egressi clamore ac tumultu fugassent, in stationem quoque pro vallo locatam atque ipsas prope portas evecti sunt. Id vero indignum visum, ab tumul30 tuario auxilio jam etiam castra Romana terreri, ut ea modo una causa, ne extemplo transirent flumenx derigerentque aciem, tenuerit Romanos, quod summa imperii eo die penes Paulum fuerit.

Page  229 NOTES. THE HISTORIES OF LIVY. BOOKS I, XXI, XXII. PRELIMINARY NOTE ON ORTHOGRAPHY. —The orthography of the best manuscripts and editions of Livy differs in some respects from that of the later Roman grammarians which prevails in our dictionaries and grammars. Although these differences are not likely to present to students any serious difficulty, a statement of the most important of them is subjoined for the benefit of those who may not have become familiar with them in their previous reading. 1. The final consonant of prepositions in compound words is generally retained, and not assimilated to the following consonant; thus adfero, rather than affero; adlatulm, not ailatum; adlicio, not allicio; adpendicibus, not appen.dicibls; adseltio, not assentio; so also con, in, ob, sub, often remain unchanged, as conlrtrum (collatum), conprehensis (comprehensis), inlatuan (illatum), inminels (imminens), inpune (impune), inritus (irritus), obpressit (oppressit), subeedo (succedo), etc. - 2. The accus9ative plural of the third declension ends often in is instead of es, and sometimes (though rarely) the nominative plural; thus omnis (omnes), finis (fines). —3. The superlative termination is found for inmus; as (optimus), (maximus).4. The letterj is omitted before i; as deicio (dejicio), reicio (rejicio), traicio (trajicio).- 5. Vo is found instead of vu; as volt (vult), voltws (vultus). -6. The letters.d and t are sometimes interchanged; thus haut (haud), set (sed), adque (atque), aput (apud). - 7. C in place of qu before u; as ecus (equus). -A few other peculiarities are noticed an they occur. PREFACE. ARGUM ENT.-Whether the success of my work will justify my labor in its preparation, I know not; but it is a pleasing task to seek to perpetuate the-fame of the foremost people in the world, and;if I Lm outshone by other writers, I shall console myself by the brilliancy of 229

Page  230 230 NOTE-S. their renown. It is a difficult undertaking to trace back the annals of our city for more than seven hundred years, and most readers will turn more readily from the story of those early d;tys to the exciting incidents of our recent civil strife. For me, however, the withdrawal of my thoughts from our present evils is a part of my reward. The mythical stories with which the origin of Rome has been invested, I neither accept nor deny. If any people-be allowed to claim the god of war as their founder, it should be the Romans. But I would call attention to the ways of life, the men, the manners, and the institutions, by which our empire was built up; and to the sad effects of declining discipline and increasing luxury, until we have come to times when we can neither bear our vices nor their remedies. This is the important lesson of history, teaching us by examples what we should pursue, and what we should avoid. If I am not mistaken, no state was ever richer than ours in good examples, nor ever retained longer the frugality and the purity of its best days. Though luxury of late has made fearful inroads, I would begin without ill-omened lamentation, and with prayers for a successful issue of my work. Page 13 1. Facturusne.. sim, Whether I shall do anything worth the while. A dependent interrogative clause ("indirect question"), following scio. The first four words can be scanned as the beginning of a dactylic hexameter verse, - an arrangement generally avoided in prose. But Tacitus begins his Annals with a complete hexameter: Urbem Romam a principio reges habuere. — 1, 2. Si persoripserim, if I shall write, or, in the ordinary English idiom, If I write. Perfect subjunctive, in a subordinate proposition, representing a subjunctive future-perfect. M. 379.-2. Res, the history. -3. Nec, si sciam, dicere ausim, noIr, f Iwere to know, should Iventure to tell. Notice, both' in thie protasis and the' apodosis, the lively use of primary tenses of -the subjunctive, where we might have expected the imperfect, as the condition is contrary to the fact just stated (neo scio). W-ith rhetorical vivacity (and Livy was nothing if not a lively rhetorician), this knowledge is spoken of'as something that may still be gained: almost as if- we were to say (in English) nor if f shall'know, shall I ven-' tuie, ete.

That the implied supposition is contrary to the fact, is shown by the words omnis erper-s crle. - 3.

Antenor entertained Ulyjsses and Menelaus when they came on an embassy to Troy to demand the restoration of Helen. (Iliad iii. 207.) Antenor advised the return of HIelen, (Iliad vii. 350 sq.). " Nothing of the kind," (says Seeley,) "is said about Aeneas in Homer, but in II. ii. 822 he is very closely connected with Antenor." Wsb. cites II. xx. 298 and xiii. 460; and remarks that Livy's birthplace, Patavium, is connected with Troy by the legends of Antenor (Tac. Ann. 16, 21), as is Rome, the city of his nationality, by those of Aeneas. — 4. Fuerunt. So the best MSS., and Wsb., IIz., Fr. - Cr., D.-Kr., Z., Mg., S. read futeraat.

Attraction of the antecedent into the relative'clause. - 12. Trojano. Predicate, attracted into the case of pago, according to the common usage with names. The name of a district is T'-ojan. - 13. Gens appellati. Livy, unlike Cicero, frequently connects collective nouns in the singular with a predicate in the plural. — Ab, in consequence of, after. - 13-15. Aeneam venisse. This accusative-and-infinitive, also, depends on constat (line 1). Vergil was writing his len6id at the same time as Livy was writing his first decad (B. C. 27-20). 14. Ad majora rerum initia.

Aen. i. 369 sq.: Sed vos qli tandem, quibus anut venistis ab oris, Quove tenetis iter? 5, 6. Unde - exissent. Three questions are compressed into this clause: ulnde (venissent), quo cast profecti (e8sent) dono, and quid qulerentes in agrumn Laurentem- exissent.

From the-omission of the preposition in before opulento oppido, and from the fact that imperitans naturally takes a dative, Seeley infers that Caere is here the dative, although he grants that this form does not occur elsewhere in that case. But there are other instances in good authors of the omission of the preposition before oppido after such locatives; and such omissions are among Livy's characteristic deviations from ordinary rus. —- 31.

Subjunctive of result with unt, following Tantum creverant. The perfect subjunctive here (as distinguished from the imperfect, which is ordinarily found when the leading proposition belongs to past time,) makes the statement emphatically and distinctly, as not confined to the immediate time of the principal verb: they dared oss no one single.:occasion. See M. 332, Obs. 1, (Obs. 3, Am. ed.); G. 304; Haase's Reisig's Vorlesungen,. 480, pp. 550 sq.; Fabri on Livy xxi. 2, 6. -35. sqq. This list of the Alban kings is undoubtedly mythical. The older traditions represented Romulus as the grandson of Aeneas; but later investigators saw that the supposed time of the destruction of Troy was separated from that of the building of Rome by 432 years, (according to Cato and Dionysius: Vergil (Aen. i. 265-274) and Livy make it 3 + 30 + 300 to the birth of Romulus and Remus): these kings were inserted to fill the gap. The names of Ascanius and Capys are taken from the Trojan legends; other names are eponyms of the great Roman houses or gentes, and some are geographical eponyms. - 38. Silviis cognomen, the name Silvius. Silviis is dative by attraction to omnibus.

The adverb divinitus, as Seeley remarks, is used in Livy's manner with the noun, as " nullo publice emolumento," vi. 39. " It is the opposite of' forte ternere,''by mere haphazard."' Gruter's and Merula's defence of their conjecture, an divinitus, was well answered by J. F. Gronovius, and Madvig's argument for the same conjecture by. Seeley. - 26-29. Tiberis - dabat. There is a little confusion here of two subjects: Tiberis as subject of nee adiri poterat, and Tiberis effusus as subject of spem dabat: the Tiber, having overflowed its banks, was not accessible at its regular channel: and the overflow of the Tiber gave hope that the outlying water wa~ deep enough for the purpose required. Effusus, with the first verb, is simply a circumstantial participle denoting the cause; with dabat it forms an actual part of the subject, being used like a verbal noun. Yet its closer connection with the noun in the second clause than in the first is easier in the Latin than in English translation, and the carelessness of construction is not unnatural. - Lenibus stagnis.

A relative clause defining or characterizing the indefinite general subject of the verb unt.- Vulgato corpore. Ablative absolute of the cause. This rationalizing interpretation of the myth proceeds on an entire misunderstanding of its origin. Larentia is the legendary Acen Larentia, which means the mother of the Lares, who, under the name of Luperca or Lupa, nursed Picus and Faunus, the guardian Lares of the Roman state considered as a family..(Wsb.) The same legend was applied to Romulus and Remus, themselves the Lares or "original ancestors and divine guardians" of the Roman state. - 5. Nec segnes, etc., while not slack to work, they delighted especially in hunting. See Nag. # 84, 2. -- 6-10. Peragrare, subsistere, facere, celebrare. Historical infinitive. This infinitive " takes the place of the imperfect, and gives the outline of the thought and not the details." Gildersleeve, 438, Rem. - Jam subsistere. Jam marks the beginning of an action.'They began not to confine themselves to lying in wait for wild beasts.' S. Subsistere is here transitive. - Sed (after non tantum) = sed etiam. - 10.

In bracketing monte, I follow Madvig, who says that the words Palatium amons are not found united as appositives, and that monte was brought up here from Palatium montem (line 13). - Lupercal. This is the name, first; of a cave (near the Ruminal fig-tree), which was the sanctuary of Lupercus, a name of Fannus as keeping the wolves from the flock (lupus, arceo), then (as here) of the Lupercalia, a shepherd's festival held on the 15th of February. -Hoc, the present, of our day, this our festival.

Construction: Latrones,... insidiatos (iis) huic ludicro deditis,... Remum cepisse. - 22. Ultro, implldently. From its original local meaning, ultro derives the signification "beyond what one might have expected," and is hence used of any gratuitous or extravagant action. - 23. Impetum. Frey suggests that perhaps we ought to have the reading impetus, - 29. Quo.. sustulisset. This relative clause, defining the subject of the sentence tempus... congruere, which has its verb in the infinitive, is an essential, constituent part of the proposition, and accordingly has its verb in the subjunctive, the mood of such conjoined clauses. The principle is the same as in Oratio Obliqua, Hi. 527, 3; A. & S. 266; B. 1291, 1292; A. 66, I.; G. 424. -30. Ad id ipsum congruere, corresponded exactly /with that.(time); i. e. with the time when the children were exposed. -33. Et, also, - Numitori. This is a frequent and elegant use of the dative, limiting not a single word alone (as animum), but the whole sentenee, - all that follows being referred to Numitor, as of interest to him. The translation in Numitor's case or in Numitor's.turnr expresses the idea in part; but it is almost impossible to do full justice to the delicate construction in English. Translate animum, (his) mind. This dative is a dative of reference, with the collateral idea of interest, and often of advantage or disadvantage. See my notes on Vergil's Aeneid i. 92 and 102. - 37 Eodem, to the same point,'to the same result (as Faustulus).-' Haut -= haud. - Esset is impersonal. 1. Juvenes is often used for wa?rriors, soldiers, from its denoting 22 persons of military age.

I ut. I ut.. ), are noteworthy. -6. Hostis. Accusative plural. -8. In arcem obtinendam, into the citadel, to hold it, etc. On the pretence that the palace is already attacked, Numitor calls the troops away (avocasset) from the palace to the citadel as the most important point to be defended Ad arcem obtinendam would have been used if the meaning had been simply to hold the citadel. - Praesidio armisque =praesidio arnmato. Hendiadys. -11-12. Ut is here interrogative, and hence takes the subjunctive of indirect question. -14. Agmine. Ablative of mode. —19. Et, and (in fact); as in chap. i. Et in quem, etc. - Supererat, was excessive, was too great for their towns. - 20. Pastores. Cf. Cic. Orat. i. 9, 37: Romuluspastores et convenas congregavit.

Essent and posset give the reason as conceived by the twins themselves: hence the subjunctive. —27. Tutelae. This possessive genitive in the predicate after essent, mnay be translated under whose protection. - 28. Qui = uter. So chap. 24: cujus populi. There is a careless ease in saying who instead of saying, precisely, which of the twco. - Daret, shoutld give, was to give. The subjunctive in this indirect question corresponds to the future indicative in direct discourse. " In dependent questions" (says Madvig, 356, Obs. 2), " about a thing which is to happen" [pres. subj., or was to happen, imperf. subj.], "the notion is to " [or was to] "' is frequently not expressed by a separate word," but is implied (he might have added) in the mood itself. The idea is not that of futurity simply, but of propriety as well: who was the one to give. - 30. See Lexicon for the meaning of templum in the language of augury. VII. 34. Tempore praecepto, from the precedence in time. - 35. Trahebant, so. ad se, claimed.- 36. Certamine irarum, in their passionate contest. The force of this genitive is best given by an adjective.

Cf. relictarum, line 27. - Eximium — pulchritudine, all those conspicuous for their beauty. Quisque with the adjective limits and particularizes the unlimited whole (boves) to which it is appositive. - 23. Foras. The accusative form of this adverb denotes direction, tendency, answering the question whither. The ablative foris denotes the place where. -25. Animi. M.

Faunus (the favorable or propitious deity) was worshipped at the cave called the Lupercal, "the original germ of Rome."

Some even made her the wife (and not the mother) of Evander, placing her by him exactly as Fauna by Faunus. - 36. Sibyllae. The Cumean Sibyl. —38. Trepidantium, hurrying in alarm.

I adopt, with Madrig, the emendation of James Gronovius (son of the great John Frederic) in omitting et before these words, and Hermann's emendation in inserting et before numerum in line 36. -Etruscis. It is probable that Roman antiquarians attached too great importance to the influence of Etruria upon Rome in her first years: " it can be shown that many institutions which they derive from Etruria were common to all the Italians." -37. Ductum (esse). Predicate verb of apparitores as well as numerum. - 38. Communiter creato rege. Ablative absolute of time: wohen a king was appointed in conmmon.

Frey, however, thinks that the omission of the pronoun implies a general subject. - 15, 16. Soli qui possent. Qui (after soli) = tales nt. - 16. Livy's explanation of the patrician order as originating with the descendants of senators is rejected* by the best modern scholars. On the contrary, " a body of nobility existed before the senate was instituted, and from this the senate was appointed" (W. F. Allen). These nobles are the patricians; their name only being possibly derived from the senators. In Sceley's opinion, "probably the'senatorswere first called'patres' either as being predominantly'heads of families, or as being elderly men (senatus, of. yspovuaa, Zlj/oyipovrts), and afterwards the patrician body took their name from the assembly which best represented them." But it is not impossible that'patres' was in the earliest times the general appellation of the heads of patrician houses, and that the sen'ators were originally'patres' only as belonging to a wider class who possessed that title.

He was a god of the Under World, who granted and denied fertility. His altar was in the Circus Maximus, in which the Romans supposed the rape of the Sabines to have taken place.: He has no connection with Neptunus; "' but the Greeks honored their Poseidon with horse-races, and in the Circus Flaminius there was an altar of Neptunus, as there was an altar of Consus in the Circus Maximus." 2, 3. Concelebrat (he makes preparation for the festival), 26 faceret. Emendations of Madvig. The MSS.: concelebrant, facereat. -6. Etiam. Mg. and Hz., after Scheibius.

A construction to the sense: collective noun with plural verb.-Forte, without choice, just as it happened. - 18. Globo, the band, servants or clients.20. Supply eam twice: as the object of violaret, and as the sub. ject of ferri. "The omission of the subject-accusative te, se, elm, eos is frequent in Livy." - 21. Hanc, this our; this of our day. When a Roman bride was conducted from her father's house to her husband's, her companions kept shouting "Ta. lassiol" The origin of this word is uncertain. (See Preller, 584.) The story of the seizure of the Sabine maidens was probably invented in part to account for the.marriage ceremonies of the Romans. - 22, 23. Violati hospitii foedus - violatum hospiti'i foede. -- 24.

Finis. Accusative plural. - 26. The name Feretrius is derived from feretrumn, a frome built of trunks of trees, upon which the pieces of armor taken as spoils from the enemy were borne and set up. Cf. Verg. Aen. xi. 83, Prel. p. 177. - 27. Romulus rex regia. Alliteration is especially frequent in solemn formulas. - 27, 28. His regionibus, within these bounds. - 29. Opima spolia, the spoils of honor, were gained by the king or general who slew the general of the enemy. - 35. Doni, honor: but with reference to the gift of the spoils to the god.-.Bina is used instead of duo because spolia has no singular. The two occasions were B. C. 437, when A. Cornelius Cossus slew Tolumnius, king of Veili, and B. C. 222, when M. Claudius Marcellus killed Viridomarus, a king of the Gaesatae, a Gallic tribe. - 36, 37.

Clamore, battle-cry. - 4. Ovantem, exulting. - Hersilia, the wife of Romulus, was the only married woman carried off by the Romans in the rape of the Sabine maidens. After her death she was deified as Hora Quirini, - the name probably of some older deity of love and marriage, and applied to her after Romulus had been identified with Quirinus. -- Conjunx. Livy generally makes this word end in n.x.7. Rem coalescere posse, the state could grow strong (or stable). Oratio Obllqua. - 9. Profectus (est Romulus). - 11. Utroque: i. e. both to Antemnae and Crustumeria. —13. Crustuminum.

Frequenter, i, large numvbers. 16. Ab Sabinis. Ab with the ablative of source.- 17. Per iram, in, a passionate sway. - 19. Consilio, to deliberation. - 20. The citadel proper was on the northern peak of the Capitoline, (if we may believe the German antiquarians; the Italians place it on the southern;) but arx is used here for the whole hill (Wsb.). Tarpeius was the old name of the Capitoline. - 22, 23. English order: Forte ea tum ierat extra moenia petitum aquam sacris (for the sacred rites). Tarpeia, the daughter of Sp.

So Wsb. —Fr. and S. translate'principes' at the Aead, advancing before the rest, and make Mettius Curtius and Hostius Hostilius subjects of the verb, instead of appositives to principes. 29 1. Ab, on the side of. -2. Hostius Hostilius was the grandfather of king Tullus Hostilius. - 5, The punctuation is Madvig's. Most editors read: fusaque est ad veterem portam Palatii. - Ad, at. - The ancient gate is the porta Mugionis, one of the three gatesof the old town on the Palatine hill, and still standing in Livy's time. -6. Actus, used as a pr)esent participle, " in the act of being hurried along." See Nag. pp. 259 sqq. -10. Huc, hither, i. e. to the Palatine, whither the Romans had been driven. — Media, the intervening. The Sabines had crossed the valley between the Capitoline and the Palatine. -12. Romanis. Dative of advantage, instead of using the ablative of separation. - 13. Statori Jovi. The inversion of the usual order of the words emphasizes stator (the stayer of flight, from sistere), as being here the prominent notion. The temple of Juppiter Stator (which however was not built till 294 B. C.), was in the immediate neighborhood of the Porta Mugionis. - Quod sit, to be. - Monumento. Mg. after P.

Silentium is the silence of attention,' they paused to listen' (S.), quies is the rest or cessation from any labor or occupation, -here from fighting. The meaning of the last word Seeley hardly under. stands aright. — 13. Imperium, the s6pren7e powver. -14. Romam. Terminal accusative. —15. Tamen aliquid, Somtething at least. Besides this derivation of Quirites as equivalent to Curites (Curenses), even in antiquity what is more probably the correct etymology was given, from quir'is, in the Sabine language at lance or Rpear, " the lancemen," " the warriors." -16. Appellati (sunt eires). All -the citizens of the united state received this name. — Monumentum, (as) a memorial. —Jbi, (the place) where. - 17. In vado, on firmn grotnd; "quo vadere poterat." — 18, Curtium lacum. In the valley at the foot of- the Palatine, there was for a long time a bog known as-the lacus Citrtius, whichwas afterwards filled up. Two stories were devised to account for this name; both of which Livy gives: the first is told' here; the second (Book vii. 6) recounts the devotion of M. Curtius, who, mounting his horse, leaped into the gulf which had opened in the forum, because the gods had declared that it could not be closed up until that which Rome held most valuable ("And what more valuable," said he, "than arms and valor?") were thrown in. There was perhaps a puteal on the site in Livy's time. - 21. The curiae were composed of associated gentes, with common sacrifices, rites, and privileges. (Lange, i. 199, 245.) In each, its peculiar sacred rites were presided over by a priest called curio. The number Livy gives would involve the previous threefold division into the three Romulian tribes. — 23. Few of the names of the thirty curiae are known to us. The occurrence among them of lapta, and their feminine terminations, may have led to their attempted identification with the names of the Sabine women. Some of them are evidently of topographical origin.- 23. Hoc, thann this (number of the curiae). - 24.

There were one hundred from each tribe, ten from each curia. - 27, 28. The names of the tribes were Ramnes, Tities, ani Luceres. Ramllenses is the adjective of Ramnes, as is Titielsses of Tities: equites Ramn,enses, equites Titienses. So the third century consisted of the equites Lucerenses, for which Livy uses here the substantive Lucer-es. Fr. — "This threefold division is the ultimate fact of Roman history, and no explanation of the names of the tribes has been given that has any probability." S. XIV. 32. The Laurentes were the people of the district of which Lavinium was the capital. - Pulsant, maltreat, beat. Plutarch (Rom. 23) says "killed." —32, 33. Jure gentium agerent, demanded satisfaction in accordance with the Law of Nations (which in all ages has declared the sacredness of the persons of.ambassadors). Agere is a legal term, of entering a complaint. - 34. Igitur; the result was that. - 35. Lavini (Lavinii). Locative case. "The Romans always performed an annual sacrifice at Lavinium," the city of the Penates of Latium. See A. W. Zumpt De Lacinio. —38.

For the peculiar meaning of this word (like that of the Greek qcrivrv), see Lexicon. —17, 18. Locis —obscuris, in dark places here and ther)e about the thick overgrowna brushwood. With Madvig, I follow the reading of the MSS. in this difficult passage. Weissenborn substitutes (e co?l.ect:lfa) inter for obsita; Hertz reads locis circa densis obsitis virgultis obscuris; Frey adopts iIz.'s reading, but brackets obscuris. Gronovius emends: partem militum locis circa denso obsitis virgulto obscuram. - 24.

Koch conjectures qique uccum co fugere visi crant.. The

Vera fuga. Ablative. - 34. Simulantes (sc. fugam). Accusative.- 35. Haerens in tergo, clinging to their rear. - 38. Romanus. The singular of a national name instead of the plural is frequent in Livy. - Obicerentur = objicerentur. - 37. Inrumpit (irrumpit). Fidenae became a colony, to which Romulus sent 1500 citizens.

Arte, stratagem. - Veterani robore exercitus. A phrase, as Seeley says, "more applicable to the standing armies of Livy's own time than to the ancient militia." Livy is constantly carrying the terms and usages of his own day into the early annals of Rome. -18. Oratores, ambassadors. Derived from what verb? - 21.

The left side was, with the Romans, the lucky one, and therefore sinistru!m, as an augural term, was equivalent to fantszum. On this account the Latin etymologists derived sinister from the verb sinzere, because an omen on the left hand'permitted' (silneret) something to be done. Zumpt. -26, 27.

Grammars still continue to convey the wrong impression that similis mnust take the genitive when it denotes internal resemblance, and the dative of external resemblance. The genitive being a case expressing closer and more intimate relations than the dative, was preferred by the older writers when (l.s in this passage) resemblance of internal qualities was implied;!tit sometimes the genitive, even in the names of living beings, was. used to. denote merely externacl resemblance: e. g. Cic. Tuse. I. xxxiii. 81: facie vel patrir, vita omnium perditorum ita similis, etc.: where, although the two kinds of resemblance are contrasted, the adjective is construed with the same case in both instances. In Cic. de Nat. Deor. ii. 59, 149, we find it followed by the two cases in the same sentence, although the same kind of resemblance is meant. I cited both of these passages in 1851, in my note on Cicero's Tuse. Disp. I. xv. 34, q. v. - 35. Adsiduum sacerdotem, as a perpetual-and-resident priest.

In a worse state of society, the fear of laws and penalties stands first as the guarantee of order; and no human society is so'perfect that this fear is without value as re-enforcing higher motives. The expression is not above criticism, but there seems to be no necessity of departing from the reading'of the MSS. Seeley properly objects to the citation of tu secundo C'aesare retgnes as justifying this reading; but it does justify the ablative absolute, which is Weisseiibokn's purpose in citing it. I suggest that another passage in Horace, nec viget quicquanm simile antt secndedund-: proximos illi tamen' occapavit Pallas honores, proves that proximus may be applied to things which, while nearest, are inferior' and' stand on -a lower plane.

The simple ablative of place without a preposition is sometimes-found in prose writers who imitate the usage of poets. It is true that the simple ablative is often used in designations of place because they "may be regarded in the light of cause, manner, or instrument,". (G. 186,) but there are cases in which it denotes place alone. That which first meant a, then: a + b, at last means simply b. The locative domi would have been regular, and Madvig is inelined to: read it; but it,. strikes..-me as very

Bekker and Wsb. suggest that as the accensi formed no separate centuria in the comitia, Livy, too, makes only 193 voting centuries. -24. Hoc. Ablative.-26. Militia. Ablative.

Sex - fecit, int the same way he made s'ix other centuries, although (only) three had been formed by Ronults, under the same names under which they were itingurlated. Tribus institutis, ablative absolute used adversatively. Isdem nominibus, i. e. R]amnes, Titienses, and Luceres, primi (or priores), and secutndi (or posteriores) respectively. As the names were given inaugutrato, they were unalterable. According to Mommsen, the sex 8uffragia (at least in the last century of the republic) were open to the plebeians, and were lower in rank than the other centuries of knights. - 31. Ad equos emendos. This money was called. the aes equestre. - 32. The antecedent of quibus (with which, in order that with it) is binta mnilia aeris. This is the aes ho)rdeariunm, and was paid annually, while the aes equestre was paid once for all. — Viduae attributae, sintgle wonmen were desi.(nated. Un-. married heiresses and widows made contributions, out of which 2,000 asses were given to each knight yearly for the keep of his horse. Bina milia, 2,000 to each (kn,ight), not' from each lady.' -35. Hoos00, privileges, as contrasted with onera (34), burdens. 63 1. The knights were unsmoned fi-rst to give their vote. -2, 3. The words primum peditum vocabantur are probably not genuine, and should be omitted in translation. Soine take primum as a contracted genitive plural.

Ibi si variaret, if there was a dcifference (in vote) among them.- Ut depends on the general sense, it was so arranged that. — 4. Secundae classis (genitive), sc. centuriae. — 5. Desoenderent. Understand a general subject, they, i. e. the Romans, the magistrates, or " the superintendents of the election." The passive impersonal might have been used, descenderetur. - It will be seen that while the principle of universal suffrage was to some extent recognized, a great advantage was given to the aristocracy of birth and wealth. The vote was by centuries, not by heads, each century counting. one. Whenever the centuries of the knights: and of the first class or wealthiest of the foot were unanimously in favor of any measure, tleir vote was already a majority of the whole, and the lower classes were not called to vote. Age, also, had the advantage over youth, inasmuch as there was an equal number of centuries of seniors and of juniors, although the number of persons must have been much greater in the latter than in the former. —

Fabius Pictor, the oldest Roman historian, lived about the time of the second Punic war, and was sent as ambassador to the oracle at Delphi after the battle at Cannae.

Esquiliae' or'exquiliae' is explained, by comparison with inqtlilinus, as the seat of the outtside duvellers, or a suburb.

The formula of proposing a law in the Cornitia Curiata began with the words "Velitis jubeatis" and ended with the words "ita vos Quirites rogo." The two words expressing one idea, (the first in the internrl sphere, the second in. the outward manifestation,) the interrogative particle is placed after the second, as if they formed one compound word. The subjunctive is that of indirect question, after the.idea of asking the people's decision implied in ferre ad popdulnt. - 8. Adfectandi, of ma, oking his iway to. S. - 11.

Ferox Tullia. As a rule, proper names in Latin do not take epithets, but the adjective is attached to some appositive noun, as vir or mulier. Here, however, the adjective distingulishes which of the two Tulliae is meant —the high-spirited Tullia, as opposed to the Tullia mitis ingenii. - 27. Cupiditatem, ambition, ambitious enlterprise. - 28. Mirari. Historical infinitive. - Virum, really a man. - 29. Regio, truly royal. -30. Virum.

Arruns, which Mg. edits, although he says it is an undoubted slip on Livy's part, and that the reading Lucius is required by-the facts. If one is morally certain that a writer has accidentally said one thing when he meant to say another, ought he not to print what he is sure the author would print himself, if he could revise the proofs? of course informing the reader of the discrepancy of the MS. At the same time, the MSS. ought not to be: departed from too easily. Following them, and placing no -comma after minor, we may make Arruns T. et T. m. the. subject of fecissent, and supply L. -Torqlinits et Tullia nmajor as the subject of jiugrtntlr. This is harsh, but perhaps possible, Another difficulty, however, remains, which Seeley thus states and meets. "Dionysius tells us expressly that the wicked Tullia was the. yol(unger. We have- to suppose, therefore, either that Livy differs from Dionysius, which is nothing. new, or that he has made a slip, not in writing' Arruns Tarquinius,' but in writing' Tullia minor.'

The occasional use of the termination -re instead of -runt, in the third person plural of the perfect, is one of the points in which Livy differs from Cicero and the older prose writers.5. Livy says which the Carthaginians (not simply Hannibal) waged, to bring out the fact that the war was fought with the consent of Carthage; although, after its unfortunate issue, all the blame was thrown on Hannibal. -6.

Inter sese, says Weissenborn, is better referred to the subject of colserebant, (so as to mean together, with each other,) than to haud ignotas (not unknown to each other). I should rather say the contrary. But, while for English translation it must be taken with one-r the other, it may really modify both. Such double constructions are frequent in Horace. -Expertas. Passive.-10. Conserebant is used with belli artes after the analogy of manus, pugnam conserere. It has a fuller meaning than haud ignotis artibnL bellum gerebant, and is a more striking expression. The impe'fect indicates the beginning and the continuance of the struggle, on which the reader's attention is to linger.-11. The adverb propius, like pi ope and proxime, isregularly construed with the accusative in Livy; the adjective more commonly with the dative, but also with the accusative. Wsb. - The first Punic war began B. C. 264, and ended B. C. 241, with the defeat of the Carthaginians in the naval battle off the Aegates islands. -12. Qui vicerunt. This relative clause is certainly an essential definition of the subject of the subjunctive fuerint, and yet the indicative is used for emphasis and vividness.

Hamilcar founds a Carthaginian kingdom in Spain by his generalship (B. C. 236-228), which is confirmed by the adroit statesmanship of his son-in-law Hasdrubal (B. C. 227-220). The Romans make an agreement with Hasdrubal that the Ebro shall be the boundary of the two empires, and that the independence of Saguntum shall be respected by both parties. II. 1. Africo bello. The war with the Libyans and mercenaries. —Quinque annos. According to Polybius (1, 88), only three years and four months (B.

With it,ob aliam i. p.aninmi is translated,on account of another nativequality, certainly, (I mean or that is) of the mind. This reading would be easier if we could take profecto to mean' that is,''to wit,' instead of having to supply that meaning after it. With either reading,- the conjecture of Lipsius, provecto anitis, is unnecessary. 13. The Barcine party, which seems to have derived its name from the cognomen of Hamilcar, favored a renewal of the war against Rome, and was supported by the army and the common people.

As the vote of the centuriapraeroyativa was considered to some extent as betokening the will of the gods, and was generally followed by the other centuries, praerogativa came to mean " vote" in general, "choice."Some predicate for this subject-nominative, like dum praeforern cr)earet, has probably fallen out, and should be supplied where the asterisks are placed in the 34th line. This is the reading of the best MSS., except that M and C have gluam instead of gua.-.

These charges against Hannibal are most unjust; the first is the only one that can be said to have any foundation; but it may be doubted whether even that is applicable, if he be judged by the standard of the times and the examples of Roman commanders.

So according to the first agreement with the consul Lutatius at the close of the first Punic war: viz., Carthage agreed to pay an indemnity of 2,200 talents in twenty years, by annual instalments. But in the treaty as finally adopted, the war-contribution was raised to 3,200 talents, a third of which was to be paid down at once, and the remainder in ten annual instalments. -14.

Polybius (3, 61) states that the soldiers of Sempronius proceeded all the way to Cisalpine Gaul by land, the consul leaving each one free to find his way as best he could, and only binding them by oath to sleep at Ariminum at an appointed date. We may partially reconcile the statements of Polybius and Livy by assuming, with Ihne (ii. 185), that "the consul's ships did not suffice to carry all the men, and a portion of them were obliged to march on foot through the whole length of Italy." LII.-LVII. 4. THE BATTLE ON THE TREBIA (December, 218 B. C.). LII. Sempronius eager to fight, Scipio counsels delay. In a cavalry engagement, the Romans have slightly the advantage. LIII. Sempronius, elated, resolves to give battle. LIV. Hannibal sets an ambush, under the command of his spirited young brother XIago. The Romans, without breakfast, ford the Trebia, and are almost frozen. LV, LVI. The battle. The Romans defeated. Under cover of a tempest, Soipio retreats to Placentia, in which town and in Cremona the shattered remains of the four legions pass the rest of the winter. LVII. Alarm at Rome. LII. 26-28. Oppositum belongs both to consules and to quid, quid virium, but is attracted in number to quidquid as the most important. The same is true of the verb declarabat.

On the northern side of the lake (now Lago di Perugia), where it is skirted by the road from Cortona to Perusia, a steep range of hills approaches near to the water's edge, so that the road passes through a defile, formed by the lake on the right and the mountains on the left. In one spot only the hills recede to some distance, and leave a small expanse of level ground, bordered on the south by the lake, and everywhere else by steep heights. On these heights Hannibal drew up his army. With the best portion of his infantry, the Libyans and Spaniards, he occupied a hill jutting out into the middle of the plain. On his left or eastern side he placed the slingers and other light troops; on his right he drew up the Gauls, and beyond them his cavalry, on the gentle slopes as far as the point where the defile begins and where he expected the advance of the Romans. Probably the ground near the lake was marshy, and consequently the road wound along the foot of the hills,. where they receded from the water. - Ihne, after Nissen. —35.

Minucius makes a hasty attack on the Carthaginians, on a field which Hannibal himself'had chosen, and where five thousand Carthaginian troops were concealed in ambush. He is worsted, and is saved from annihilation only by the interposition of Fabius. XXX. Minucius returns thanks to Fabius, and voluntarily resumes his subordinate station. XXXI. Cn. Servilius, the consul, not being able to find' the Carthaginian fleet in pursuit of which he had been sent from Ostia (chap. xi.), sails to Africa. He plunders the island of Meninx, and exacts ten silver talents as a war-contribution from the island of Cercina. Venturing -toi land in Africa, he is repulsed with great loss.

The Neapolitans send golden vessels from their temples to Rome, as a voluntary contribution towards the expenses of the war. The senate accepts only the smallest vessel, to honor the intention of the allies. A spy's hands are cut off. Twenty-five rebellious slaves are crucified. Ambassadors are sent to the king of Macedonia, to demand the surrender of Demetrius of Pharos, who had taken refuge with him;'to the Ligurians, to warn them against aiding the Carthaginians; and to the king of the Illyrians, reminding him to pay the tribute due to Rome. A chapel, previously vowed, is built to Concord. A dictator is named to hold the comitia for the election of new consuls. XXXII. 8.

The statement that Hannibal was hard pressed for want of provisions is probably an invention of the aristocratic writers, who wished to condemn the strategy of the plebeian Varro.

It seems beyond comprehension that in a, close combat, man. to man, the conquerors could strike down with cold steel more than their own numbers The physical exertion alone must have been almost superhuman. The carnage lasted nearly the whole day. Two hours before the sun went down, -(the sun. had been two hours risen when the battle began), - the Roman army was annihilated, and more than one-half lay dead on, the field of battle. The victory, which surpassed his boldest expectations, had cost Hannibal: not quite -six thousand men, (4000 Gauls, 1500 Spaniards and Africans, and 200 knights, Polyb. 3, 117,) and among them only two hundred of the brave horsemen to whom it was principally due."

In the mountain passes of Samnium the Roman consul had allowed his army to be surrounded in a valley by the enemy. Destruction seemed inevitable; when Decius offered,'with the hastati' and principes of the legion, to seize a height which commanded the way by which the Samnites were hastening down to attack the Roman army. Here he maintained himself gallantly, while' the Roman army gained the'summit of the mountain. In the ensuing night he persuaded his soldiers to follow him and break through the Samnites who were encamped around him. Succeeding in this brave attempt, he joined the consul, and induced him to make an immediate attack upon the enemy, which' resulted in a brilliant victory. See Liv. vii. 34. This Decius is the same who gave his life, with heroic devotio, as the price of Roman victory in the great Latin war, B. C. 340. — 37. Calpurnius Flamma was a tribune of the soldiers in the first -Punic -war. A'Roman consular army in Sicily having been led into a defile where it found itself beset by the Carthaginians on the surrounding heights, Calpurnius offered to draw the fire of the enemy by occupying a hill in the pass, with the prospect of certasin death foi' himself and the soldiers who should follow him.While the Carthaginians were fighting with him, the Roman army escaped.

" In this war Rome wanted men who rated their lives as nothing, and were determined rather to die than to flee or surrender. In order to impress this necessity upon all Roman soldiers, the unfortunate prisoners of Cannae were sacrificed. At the very time when Rome armed slaves in her defence, she handed over thousands of freeborn citizens to be sold in the slavemarkets of Utica and Carthage, and to be kept to field-labor under the burning sun of Africa. We may admire the grandeur of the Roman spirit, but-we are bound to express our horror and detestation of. the idol of national greatness to which the Romans sacrificed their own children in cold blood."

Page  363 SUMMARY OF AN HISTORICAL EXAMINATION OF THE FIRST BOOK OF LIVY. BY J. R. SEELEY, M. A. I HE result of our whole examination is a very meagre outline,! but one in every way probable, of the earliest condition of Rome. We see a number of'gentes' or clans living apparently on local districts or'pagi' side by side. They. bear for the most part the names afterwards conspicuous in Roman history as the names of the great patrician houses. They are divided into three great tribes. They regard themselves as connected both with the Latins and with the Sabines. Where several. sacred places are near together — the Ara Maxima of Hercules the sacred place of Faunus Lupercus on the Palatine, the temple of Quirinus on the Quirinal - a town springs up. To this the clans resort for festivals, markets, and for common deliberation. The clans are an exclusive body, and are in possession of various priesthoods and religious privileges. Though we are told of a great Sabine clan - the Claudian - being admitted among theni, they do not as a rule admit strangers into their bodv. They have a king, chosen, from their own body, who rules for life. lie summons round him a council of chiefs or elders, called'senatus.' This body, whatever deference may be paid to it, has no unction beyond that of advising. He commands the army, presides in the senate, and performs certain sacrifices. HIe has the power of appointing two law-officers called' quaestors.' There is a general assembly of the clans called' comitia curiata.' 863'

Page  364 "344 SUMMARY. At this, among other things, family questions, such as adoptions from one clan into another, are decided. The community has a religious ritual of an extremely complicated yet inexpensive kind, to which it is much devoted. It has religious rites proper to the family and also to the gens; it has also several private religious guilds, which existito perform certain rites at intervals; sometimes these guilds are connected with particular clans. It has priests connected with particular temples and some highly venerated priests, but no organized priesthood; a priest is not necessary to a sacrifice. It has three guilds of persons skilled in theology - the pontiffs, the augurs, and the fetiales. The king appears to have the supreme religious as well as civil power. The army consists principally of cavalry, which is chosen in equal numbers from the three tribes. In this primitive constitution a great reform takes place. Irfcons equence of a great population having grown up outside the clans, an army is formed from the whole community, each citizen being ranked according to his property, and required to provide himself with corresponding arms. This army consists mainly of infantry arrayed in phalanx. The army so constituted is regarded as a national assembly, and when the will of the nation is to be expressed, a single vote is given to each century of the army. In order to make the property-register, a new local classification is required. Four local city tribes are established. At some unknown time, but possibly at the same time, the outside population is admitted into the clans, into the three tribes, and into the comitia curiata. But the original clans continue to regard themselves as being the only true clans. A national temple of unprecedented magnificence is built on the Capitoline hill. A foreign sacread book is acquired; which introduces a Greek. element into the religion of;the country. Finally, a revolution takes place, and the king for life is superseded by two magistrates holding power only for a year. THE END.

TIE publication of: this edition of the Classics was suggested by the constantly increasing demand 1by teachers for an edition which, by judicious notes, would give to the student the assistance really necessary to render his study profitable, furnishing explanations of passages difficult of interpretation, of peculiarities of Syntax, &c., and yet would require him to make-faithful use of his Grammar and Dictionary. It is believed that this classical Series needs only to be known 2

Among these are many of the largest and most important classical institutions in the'country. The Publishers desire to acknowledge. their indebtedness to the teachers of Latin throughout the country who are using these l)ooks, for the high position that has been accorded to them. Grateful for the very flattering welcome they have received, we pledge ourselves that the entire Series shall beIn Sclholarship Inferior to None. In Appearance The Most Attractive. In Binding The Most Durable. In Price The Most Reasonable. To those teachers who do not use them we suggest the consideration of two facts: 1. Large and permanent success follows only real merit. 2.

Page  6 6 SERIES OF TEXT-BOOKS ON THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. By JOHN S. HART, LL.D., Professor of Rhetoric and of the English Language in the College of New Jersey. The Series comprises the following volumes, viz.: First Lessons in Composition,... Price, $0.90 Composition and Rhetoric,... 1.50 A Short Course in Literature,..., 1.50 And for Colleges and Higher Institutions of Learning: A Manual of American Literature,. " 2.50 A Manual of English Literature,. ~, 2.50 Hart's First Lessons in Composition is intended for beginners. A greater help to the Teacher never was invented. It will revolutioniize the whole work of teaching. By the increased power of expression which it gives to the pupil, it doubles his progress in every study. There is not a school but in which a class can be formed for its advantageous use. Any pupil able to read, tolerably well can use it to advantage. Hart's Composition and Rhetoric has been prepared with a full knowledge of the wants of both teacher and scholar in this important branch of education, and the author has spared no pains to make the book eminently practical and adapted to use in the class-room. Dr. Hart has been engaged for more than one-third of a century in the practical duties of the schoolroom, and for years past has made a specialty of the subject of which the present volume treats. The great variety and copiousness of the "' Examples for Practice" will commend the book to general favor. In this respect it is unequalled by any similar work heretofore published.

Page  7 7 Hart's Short Course in Literature, English and American, is intended -as a text-boo'k for Schools and Academies. It is designed for the use of those who have not the time to devote to the study of Literature as laid down in the larger books of the Series. Hart's Manual of English Literature is intended as a textbook for Colleges, and as a book of reference. Hart's Manual of American Literature is a companion volume to the "English Literature," with which it corresponds in general character and design. It is intended as a text-book for Colleges, and as a book of reference. In these volumes Prof. Hart has embodied the matured fruits of his life-long studies in this department of letters. We believe they will be found in advance of any other text-books on the subject, in the comprehensiveness of the plan, the freshness of rmuch of the materials, the sound judgment shown in the critical opinions, the clearness with which the several topics are presented, and the beauty as well as the practical convenience of the mechanical arrangements. The scholarly culture and excellent literary judgment displayed, entitle these books to a high place among the works on English literature. The plan and arrangement present many novel features, and the thoroughness of detail, brevity and precision of statement, elegance of style, and soundness of opinion which characterize the volumes, call for the sincerest commendation. NATOMY, PHYSIOLOGY, AND HYGIENE. A Text-Book for Schools, Academies, Colleges, and Families. By JOSEPH C. MARTINDALE, M. D., late Principal of the Madison Grammar School, Philadelphia. Price by mail, postpaid, $1.3o. The study of Physiology and the Laws of Health is as important as it is interesting. Its importance has become so generally

Page  8 recognized that there are now few schools in which it does not occupy a prominent position in the course of instruction. Dr. Martindale's Anatomy, Physiology, and Hygiene presents the following claims to the consideration of teachers. Technicalities have been avoided, so far as consistent with the treatment of the subject. The style in which it is written is not only pleasing, but such as to be readily comprehended by those for whose use it is designed. Superfluous matter has been omitted, so that the book can be completed in a much shorter period than any other text-book on the subject as yet published. Descriptive circular sent on application. FIRST LESSONS IN NATURAL PHILOSOPHY. For Beginners. By JOSEPH C. MARTINDALE, M.D., late Principal of the Madison Grammar School. Price by mail, postpaid, 60 cents. This book is what its title indicates, " First Lessons in Natural Philosophy;" and it presents each division of the subject in such an easy and familiar style, that it cannot fail to interest and instruct any child of ordinary intelligence. Beginning as it does in a simple and easy manner, it secures the. interest of the pupil by first directing his attention to objects in nature with which he is familiar. When the interest is thus excited, the subject is gradually unfolded by presenting, one after another, the familiar things met with in the every-day walks of life; thus, the most common objects are made the means of teaching great philosophical truths. Only so much of the subject is presented as can be taught with profit in our public and private schools, yet what has been given will be found to embrace all the more common phenomena met with in every- day life. The facts are so clearly and so plainly set forth, that they are entirely capable of comprehension by those for whose use and benefit this little work is designed. Teachers interested in the "Object Lesson " system of teach

AN ELEMENTARY ALGEBRA, FOR SCHOOLS AND ACADEMIES. By JOSEPH W. WILSON, A.M., Professor of Mathematics in the Philadelphia Central High School. Price by mail, postpaid, $I.25. The present work is the result of an effort to produce an Elementary Algebra suited to the wants of classes commencing the study. It has been prepared by one who for years has felt the need of just such a book, and is the fruit of long experience in the school-room. With this book in hand, the pupil cannot help avoiding the difficulties which invariably present themselves at the very threshold of the study of Algebra. It has been the aim to give such a presentation of the subject as will meet the wants of Common Schools and Academies. It is an elementary work, and no attempt has been made to include everything which might be brought under the head of Algebra. The treatment of the subject is on the principle of "step by step," so that the pupil at the very outset is inspired with a degree of confidence which induces self-reliance; rendering unnecessary a constant application to the teacher for help. The book is commended to teachers in the hope that it wil. satisfy a need which the author has himself frequently felt. Descriptive.circular sent on application.

Page  10 THE CRITTENDEN COMMERCIAL ARITHMETIC AND BUSINESS MANUAL. Designed for the Use of'T'eachers, Business Men, Academies, High Schools, and Commercial Colleges. By JOHN GROESBECK, Principal of Crittenden's Philadelphia Commercial College. Price by mail, postpaid, $I.50. In every High School and Academy in the land, the organization of a class in Commercial Arithmetic, Business Calculations and Forms, will prove an element of popularity and success that will yield rich results. The subject itself is so intrinsically valuable as a means of developing thought, that, were this the only result to be gained, it would be entitled to and should receive the special attention of the progressive teacher. But apart from this, the introduction of a study so interesting in itself, so attractive to the scholar, and having so direct a bearing on his future welfare, will, in many an instance, decide the Welfare of a school, directing the channel of popular opinion in its favor, and prove the means of filling it with students anxious to secure its advantages.

Page  11 The compiler cannot conceal the hope that this glimpse of our general literature may tempt to individual research among its treasures, so varied and inexhaustible; - that,'this text-book for the school-room may become not only teacher, but friend, to those in whose hands it is placed, and while aiding, through systematic development and training of the elocutionary powers of the pupil, to overcome many of the practical difficulties of instruction, may accomplish a higher work in the cultivation and refinement of character. THE MODEL SPEAKER: Consisting of Exercises - in Prose, Poetry, and Blank Verse, Suitable for Declamation, Public Reading, School Exhibitions, &c. Compiled for the Use of Schools, Academies, Colleges, and Private Classes, by Prof. PHILIP LAWRENCE. Price by mail, postpaid, $1i50. Great care has been taken to consult the authorized editions'of the various writers represented, that the extracts from their works.may be relied upon as accurate; though, in some instances, preference has been given to an early edition, when, in later issues, the alterations have not been deemed improvements. Many poexns have been introduced which have never before found their way into any book of selections, being now for the first time published in this country in a permanent form. It is believed that this book will be found admirably adapted for: use as a " Reader," either in connection with any of the regular. series of reading-books, or to be taken up by classes that, having used the higher readers of the different series, need variety as an incentive to interest. For this purpose we particularly commend it to the attention of Principals of Academies, Seminaries, High Schools, Normal Schools, and Institutions for Young Ladies.
