C. Suetonius Tranquillus, Nero (ed. Alexander Thomson), chapter 2 (search)
To begin, therefore, at a remote period, his greatgrandfather's grandfather, Cneius Domitius, when he was tribune of the people, being offended with the high priests for electing another than himself in the room of his father, obtained the transfer of the right of election from the colleges of the priests to the people. In his consulship,A.U.C. 632 having conquered the Allobroges and the Arverni,The Allobroges were a tribe of Gauls, inhabiting Dauphiny and Savoy; the Averni have left their name in Auvergne. he made a progress through the province, mounted upon an elephant, with a body of soldiers attending him, in a sort of triumphal pomp. Of this person the orator Licinius Crassus said, "It was no wonder he had a brazen beard, who had a face of iron, and a heart of lead." His son, during his praetorship,A.U.C. 695 proposed that Cneius Caesar, upon the expiration of his consulship, should be called to account before the senate for his administration of that office, which was supposed

of Columbus, a poem which obtained great popularity. Visiting Europe in 1788 as agent for the Scioto Land Company, he published, in aid of the French Revolution, Advice to the privileged orders. To this he added, in 1791, a Letter to the National convention, and the Conspiracy of Kings. As deputy of the London Constitutional Society, he presented an address to the French National Convention, and took up his abode in Paris, where he became a French citizen. Barlow was given employment in Savoy, where he wrote his mock-heroic poem, Hasty pudding. He was United States consul at Algiers in 1795-97, where he negotiated treaties with the ruler of that state, and also with the Bey of Tunis. He took sides with the French Directory in their controversy with the American envoys. (See Directory, the French.) Having made a large fortune by speculations in France, Mr. Barlow returned to the United States in 1805, and built himself an elegant mansion in the vicinity of Washington, and calle

the war for State aid to soldiers' families, and which was afterwards refunded by the Commonwealth, was as follows: In 1861, $25.42; in 1862, $515.01; in 1863, $1,636.90; in 1864, $1,532.34; in 1865, $1,450.00. Total in four years, $5,159.67. Savoy Incorporated Feb. 20, 1797. Population in 1860, 904; in 1865, 866. Valuation in 1860, $268,439; in 1865, $273,400. The selectmen in 1861 were Willis W. Barnett, Emerson L. Mason, Orin Tower; in 1862, Melvin Bowker, Caleb Brown, Edward Mas. At a meeting held on the 13th of March, the town voted to raise one thousand dollars for the payment of State aid to the families of soldiers; and the selectmen were directed to continue recruiting, to keep the quota of the town always full. Savoy furnished about ninety-five men for the war, which was a surplus of ten over and above all demands. None were commissioned officers. The whole amount of money appropriated and expended by the town on account of the war, exclusive of State aid,

led for Europe, arriving there shortly after the peace of Villafranca. The Continent was in a ferment; and he was sufficiently well informed to take an excited interest in the questions of the time. From a balcony on the Boulevard, looking down the Rue de la Paix, he saw the triumphal entry into Paris of the Emperor and the army of Italy. I suppose war is a great evil, he said, but it is so splendid that I am half sorry we can never have one at home. A week later he was in Chamouni in Savoy. On the Mer de Glace, his party came to a place where two large masses of ice, sloping towards each other, left between them a dangerous crevasse. An Englishman, named Haskin, went from the upper edge of one of these inclined planes, intending to cross it obliquely and join his friends on an ice-mound at the end of the opening. He was beginning to slide helplessly towards destruction, when Fitzhugh ran upon him from the elevation with an impetus sufficient to carry both along the edge of

My short experience in the army led me to expect that the discipline which was necessarily enforced there would have a beneficial effect on the men composing the army, and my experience the past year, as marshal, has given me no reason to change my mind.

It is my opinion that there is a marked improvement in the character of many of them, both social and moral. H. Snow, Chairman Selectmen. Sharon.

nteen. With Bryant and Longfellow, it would therefore seem, the permanent poetic literature of the nation began. The Rivulet and The Hymn of the Moravian Nuns appeared in the Gazette collection, and have never disappeared from the poetic cyclopedias. The volume included fourteen of Longfellow's youthful effusions, only six of which he saw fit to preserve; dropping behind him, perhaps wisely, the Dirge Over a Nameless Grave, Thanksgiving, The Angler's Song, Autumnal Nightfall, A Song of Savoy, Italian Scenery, The Venetian Gondolier, and The Sea Diver. He himself says of those which he preserved that they were all written before the age of nineteen, and this is obvious from the very date of the volume. Even in the rejected poems the reader recognizes an easy command of the simpler forms of melody, and a quick though not profound feeling for external nature. Where he subsequently revises these poems, however, the changes are apt to be verbal only, and all evidently matters of t
