Epictetus, Discourses (ed. George Long), book 3 (search)
as are of riper years, the person to be baptized is asked 'Dost thou believe in God the Father Almighty,' etc. in the terms of the Church Creeds, but in place of the resurrection of the body or of the dead, he is asked if he believes 'in the resurrection of the flesh.' The various opinions of divines of the English church on the resurrection of the body are stated by A. Clissold in the 'Practical Nature of the Theological Writings of E. Swedenborg in a letter to Whately, Archbishop of Dublin, 1859, 2nd ed.' Wherefore the wise and good man, remembering who he is and whence he came, and by whom he was produced, is attentive only to this, how he may fill his place with due regularity, and obediently to God. Dost thou still wish me to exist (live)? I will continue to exist as free, as noble in nature, as thou hast wished me to exist: for thou hast made me free from hindrance in that which is my own. But hast thou no further need of me? I thank thee; and so far I have remained for thy sak

us, seems right in explaining it of the shoulders (comp. 11. 644, where armos is used of a man, and see on 11. 640). Dido speaks first of Aeneas' personal appearance, afterwards, v. 13, of his prowess. So we have seen that Aeneas appears Os humerosque Deo similis 1. 589.

The meaning then will be that Dido can well believe from Aeneas' mien and stature that his mother was a goddess. With forti thus used comp. forte latus Hor. 1 Ep. 7. 26. Since the above was written (1859), I have been pleased to observe a confirmation of this view in a passage in Mr. Tennyson's Idylls of the King, where Enid, looking at her husband as he lies asleep, breaks out into the exclamation O noble breast and allpuissant arms! a coincidence which will, I trust, show that similar language may be attributed to Dido without involving any imputation of coarseness.

Aditus and ostia seem rightly explained by Henry as a sort of Virgilian hendiadys, aditus per centum lata ostia. But it is not easy to understand what these entrances were. On the whole the consistency of the description seems to require that we should understand them to be the entrances of the adytum, opening into the temple (comp. 3. 92, where the adytum is opened similarly at the giving of the response): but a hundred doors communicating from one side of the temple to a cavern beyond form a picture which is not readily grasped. Meanwhile the general tenor of the narrative is well illustrated by a graphic description of a worshipper at Delphi approaching the adytum in the Oxford Arnold Prize Essay for 1859, by my friend Mr. Bowen of Balliol College. I quote it in an Appendix to this book, as it is too long for a note.
summon the force of Texas into the field. Kennedy, History of Texas, vol. II., p. 159. Houston and Forbes made a treaty, February 23, 1836, ceding to the Indians a large territory. It has been objected to the Declaration that it was an ill-advised, disingenuous, if not subtle and sinister measure, null and void for want of fundamental authority, of no moral or political obligation, and only calculated to embarrass any future transactions with these obtruding savages. Texas Almanac, 1859, p. 18. Vice-President Burnet, acting Secretary of State, says that the provisional government was acting outside the sphere of its legitimate power, and could not, in a matter so extraneous to the avowed purposes of its creation, impose any moral or political obligation upon the independent and separate Government of Texas. Dispatch, May 30, 1839, to General Dunlap, Texan minister to the United States. It will be observed that the Consultation, by its very name, was provisional, and profe

During General Johnston's administration of that military department, the Indians behaved very well. A few outrages only were perpetrated by bands and California and Oregon emigrants will remember that their wagon-trains received escorts of dragoons over the dangerous parts of the route. In the spring of 1859 an issue arose between General Johnston and Governor Cumming, in which the latter was evidently misled by his feelings.

the coveted fragment, and started on the return trip. The audacity of the man stunned the audience for a moment, but indignation soon got the better of astonishment, and the soldier was in some danger of rough treatment. But the chairman had his revolver out in a second, and holding it aloft proclaimed: I'll shoot the first man who interferes with that soldier. And the soldier carried off the fragment. Of course he was drunk; but he could not have done the same thing without a drubbing in 1859. This anecdote — and others might be related — indicates the policy and perhaps the expectations of the secessionists in connection with the soldiers of Fort Moultrie.-J. C. The secessionists were determined to have the fort, and they wanted to get it without bloodshed. They had failed with the commissioned officers, and they had no better success with the soldiers: every enlisted man remained faithful to the Union. The old commander of Fort Moultrie, Colonel John L. Gardner, was remov

well, but he declined it, and recommended Mr. C. G. Memminger, also of South Carolina, for the Treasury portfolio, which was promptly accorded to him. Both of these gentlemen had been cooperationists, and up to the last had opposed secession. Mr. Barnwell would not have been sent to the State convention from Beaufort but for the efforts of Edmund Rhett, an influential State senator. Of Mr. Memminger it was said that when a bill was on its passage through the Legislature of South Carolina in 1859, appropriating a sum of money for the purchase of arms, he had slipped in an amendment which had operated to prevent Governor Gist from drawing the money and procuring the arms. In Charleston he was known as an active friend of the preschool system and orphan house, a moral and charitable Episcopalian, and a lawyer, industrious, shrewd, and thrifty. As chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means in the House of Representatives, he was familiar with the cut-and-dried plan of raising the smal

ious times, but had never been carried to the point of useful application. In 1842 Timby had proposed a system of coast fortification based on this idea, but the plan had been found defective, and had been rejected. In 1854 Captain Ericsson had submitted to the Emperor Napoleon III. a design of an iron-clad battery with a hemispherical turret. In the next year Captain Cowper Coles, R. N., had suggested a vessel in the form of a raft with a stationary shield for protecting the guns; and in 1859 he had improved upon this design by adding a revolving cupola. But it was left to the genius of Ericsson to develop by itself the perfected application of the principle, and to construct a navigable turret iron-clad which should be nearly invulnerable to every weapon but the torpedo. When the Navy Department finally understood Ericsson's plan, it immediately adopted it. According to Captain Ericsson, The Committee of Naval Commanders . . . occupied me less than two hours in explaining my

m would bring a favorable judgment both to the State and its Governor. Robert Burns aptly says: What's done we partly may compute, But know not what's resisted. Governor Hicks received a communication from prominent citizens, shortly after the election, in 1860, requesting him to call an extra session of the Legislature, in order to consider the condition of the country, and to determine what course Maryland should take. The members of the Legislature had been elected in the fall of 1859, mainly on State issues, and were not authorized to represent the people on the momentous questions pending in 1861. The Governor promptly refused to make the call. He was solicited again and again, privately and publicly, by individuals and by county meetings, but he most decidedly declined to do so. He resisted all blandishments, threats, and importunities. A commissioner from Mississippi, a native of Maryland, came to him and invited the co-operation of Maryland, but the Governor declin
