P. Ovidius Naso, Art of Love, Remedy of Love, Art of Beauty, Court of Love, History of Love, Amours (ed. various), Elegy XIII: Of Juno's Feast. (search)
Elegy XIII: Of Juno's Feast. My wife, a native of Phaliscan plains, Where the rich soils enrich the lab'ring swains, Where purple grapes and golden apples grow, A conquest we to great Camillus owe. When once to Juno's feast she thither went, My mind to know the secret rites was bent: The pious priests the solemn sports prepare, And purify the fane with holy care. A heifer of the place they sacrifice, But ne'er to men expose their mysteries, I mark'd the hidden way my consort went, And follow'd down the deep and dark descent. To an old wood at last I came, whose shade Impress'd a horror on the gloom it made, And ev'ry step with trembling feet I trod, Profan'd, I thought, the dwelling of a god. An altar there was rais'd by hands divine, And fragrant incense flam'd around the shrine. Chaste matrons there their vow'd oblations pay, And celebrate with joyful hymns the day. Soon as the fife the signal gives, they move In long procession through the sacred grove Branches and flow'rs are wi

ing attended by a guard of spearmen, and made soldiers wait upon him at table instead of servants. He never visited a sick person, until the chamber had been first searched, and the bed and bedding thoroughly examined. At other times, all persons who came to pay their court to him were strictly searched by officers appointed for that purpose; nor was it until after a long time, and with much difficulty, that he was prevailed upon to excuse women, boys, and girls from such rude handling, or suffer their attendants or writing-masters to retain their cases for pens and styles. When Camillus formed his plot against him, not doubting but his timidity might be worked upon without a war, he wrote to him a scurrilous, petulant, and threatening letter, desiring him to resign the government, and betake himself to a life of privacy. Upon receiving this requisition, he had some thoughts of complying with it, and summoned together the principal men of, the city, to consult with them on the subject.
C. Suetonius Tranquillus, Otho (ed. Alexander Thomson), chapter 1 (search)
. His father, Lucius Otho, was by the mother's side nobly descended, allied to several great families, and so dearly beloved by Tiberius, and so much resembled him in his features, that most people believed Tiberius was his father. He behaved with great strictness and severity, not only in the city offices, but in the pro-consulship of Africa, and some extraordinary commands in the army. He had the courage to punish with death some soldiers in Illyricum, who, in the disturbance attempted by Camillus, upon changing their minds, had put their generals to the sword, as promoters of that insurrection against Claudius. He ordered the execution to take place in the front of the camp, On the esplanade, where the standards, objects of religious reverence, were planted. See note to c. vi. Criminals were usually executed outside the Valium, and in the presence of a centurion. and under his own eyes; though he knew they had been advanced to higher ranks in the army by Claudius, on that very acco

taken, such as are the doom Of potent nations: and when fortune poured Through Roman gates the booty of a world, The curse of luxury, chief bane of states, Fell on her sons. Farewell the ancient ways! Behold the pomp profuse, the houses decked With ornament; their hunger loathed the food Of former days; men wore attire for dames Scarce fitly fashioned; poverty was scorned, Fruitful of warriors; and from all the world Came that which ruins nations; while the fields Furrowed of yore by great Camillus' plough, Or by the mattock which a Curius held, Lost their once narrow bounds, and widening tracts By hinds unknown were tilled. No nation this To sheathe the sword, with tranquil peace content And with her liberties; but prone to ire; Crime holding light as though by want compelled: Great was the glory in the minds of men, Ambition lawful even at point of sword, To rise above their country: might their law: Decrees were forced from Senate and from Plebs: Consul and Tribune broke the laws a

ly: 'Called from the margin of the silent stream I saw no fateful sisters spin the threads. 'Yet know I this, that 'mid the Roman shades 'Reigns fiercest discord; and this impious war 'Destroys the peace that ruled the fields of death. 'Elysian meads and deeps of Tartarus 'In paths diverse the Roman chieftains leave 'And thus disclose the fates. The blissful ghosts Bear visages of sorrow. Sire and son 'The Decii, who gave themselves to death 'In expiation of their country's doom, 'And great Camillus, wept; and Sulla's shade 'Complained of fortune. Scipio bewailed 'The scion of his race about to fall ' In sands of Libya: Cato, greatest foe ' To Carthage, grieves for that indignant soul ' Which shall disdain to serve. Brutus alone ' In all the happy ranks I smiling saw, ' First consul when the kings were thrust from Rome. ' The chains were fallen from boastful Catiline.

A resident in the town of Camillus, N. Y., Almon Wilber, was enlisted at Syracuse. He stated that he is the oldest of twelve brothers, sons of William and Electa Wilber, of Camillus, and that now they had all entered the service of the United States. This brother is now between forty-four and forty-five years of age; and none of the twelve brothers weigh less than two hundred pounds. His son enlisted at the same time he did.
