or were left Sardinian shores unvisited: each isle Is blest with noble harvests which have filled More than all else the granaries of Rome, And poured their plenty on Hesperia's shores. Not even Libya, with its fertile soil, Their yield surpasses, when the southern wind Gives way to northern and permits the clouds To drop their moisture on the teeming earth. This ordered, Caesar leads his legions on, Not armed for war, but as in time of peace Returning to his home. Ah! had he come With only Gallia conquered and the North,It may be remarked that, in B.C. 46, Caesar, after the battle of Thapsus, celebrated four triumphs: for his victories over the Gauls, Ptolemaeus, Pharnaces, and Juba. What long array of triumph had he brought! What pictured scenes of battle! how had Rhine And Ocean borne his chains! How noble Gaul, And Britain's fair-haired chiefs his lofty car Had followed! Such a triumph had he lost By further conquest. Now in silent fear They watched his marching troops, nor joyful

were drawn the wavering men of Rome. ' Mute now are laws in war; we from our hearths Are driven, yet willing exiles; for thine arms Shall make us citizens of Rome again. 'Strike;'Strike.' Dante places Curio in the ninth gulf of hell, 'from whose throat was cut the tongue which spake that hardy word.'-' Inferno,' xxviii.98 (Cary). for no strength as yet the foe hath gained. 'To pause when ready is to court defeat: 'Like risk, like labour, thou hast known before, 'But never such reward. Could Gallia hold 'Thine armies ten long years ere victory came, 'That little nook of earth? One paltry fight 'Or twain, fought out by thy resistless hand, 'And Rome for thee shall have subdued the world: 'Tis true no triumph now would bring thee home; 'No captive tribes would grace thy chariot wheels 'Winding in pomp around the ancient hill: 'Spite, gnawing spite, denies thee all thy due; For all thy conquests, for a world well won 'Scarce shalt thou go unpunished. Yet 'tis fate 'Thou should'st subdue

vaunted kings: ' One stroke of sword and all the world is yours. ' Make plain to all men that the crowds who decked 'Pompeius' hundred pageants scarce were fit 'For one poor triumph. Shall Armenia care 'Who leads her masters, or barbarians shed 'One drop of blood to make Pompeius chief 'O'er our Italia? Rome, 'tis Rome they hate, 'Their lord and master: yet they hate the most 'Those whom they know. My fate is in the hands 'Of you, mine own true soldiers, proved in all 'The wars we fought in Gallia. When the sword 'Of each of you shall strike, I know the hand: 'The javelin's flight to me betrays the arm 'That launched it hurtling: and to-day once more 'I see the faces stern, the threatening eyes, 'Unfailing proofs of victory to come. 'E'en now the battle rushes on my sight; 'Kings trodden down and scattered senators 'Fill all th' ensanguined plain, and peoples float 'Unnumbered on the crimson tide of death. 'Enough of words-I but delay the fates; 'And you who burn to dash into the fray

Pompeius, ignorant that his captain thus Was taken, armed his levies newly raised To give his legions strength; and as he thought To sound his trumpets with the coming dawn, To test his soldiers ere he moved his camp Thus in majestic tones their ranks addressed: True host of Rome! avengers of her laws Ranked 'neath the standards of the better right, To whom the Senate gives no private arms, Ask by your voices for the battle sign. Fierce falls the pillage on Hesperian fields, And Gallia's fury o'er the snowy Alps Is poured upon us. Caesar's swords at last ' Are red with Roman blood. But with the wound We gain the better cause; the crime is theirs. Through me her captain Rome for vengeance calls; ' Tis no true fight to wreak your country's ire. ' Was that a war when Catilina's hand ' Lifted against her roofs the flaming torch, ' And, partner in his fury, Lentulus, ' And mad Cethegus This family is also alluded to by Horace ('Ars Poetica,' 50) as having worn a garment of ancient fashion
