Appian, The Civil Wars (ed. Horace White), FRAGMENTA, CONCERNING THE DIVINATION OF THE ARABS (search)
CONCERNING THE DIVINATION OF THE ARABS FROM THE SAMEThis fragment was first published in the Revue Archæologique, in 1869, by C. Miller, from a manuscript not indicated. It appears from the following note of Mendelssohn (ii. 1) that it was known to the monks of Mount Athos earlier: "As regards the matter related to Grævius by a certain Greek named Jeremiah, concerning various unpublished fragments of Appian, which have been preserved on Mount Athos (see Burmann, ep. syll. vol. iv. p. 69), he seems to have had in mind the fragment of the twenty-fourth book, published by Miller and more lately by Treu." [APPIAN says, at the end of his twenty-fourth book:] While I was once fleeing from the Jews, during the war that occurred in Egypt, and was passing through Arabia Petræa to a river where a small boat was waiting to convey me to Pelusium, an Arab was conducting me on my journey by night, and

tle spasmodic. In both instances Shakespeare had to suit his treatment to the material. But that material in the case of Coriolanus offered less difficulty. It lay ready to the dramatist's hand and took the shape that he imposed, almost of itself. The result is a masterpiece that, as an organic work of art, has been placed on the level of Shakespeare's most independent tragedies.E.g. by Viehoff, in his interesting essay, Shakespeare's Coriolan (Jahrbuch der D.-Sh. Gesellschaft, Bd. iv. 1869), which has been used in the following paragraphs. Thus it is easy to see how the personality of the hero dominates the complex story, as the heart transmits the life-blood through the body and its members, and receives it back again; how his character contains in itself the seeds of his offence and its reparation; how the other figures are related to him in parallel and contrast; how the two grand interests, the conflict between Coriolanus and Aufidius, the conflict between Coriolanu
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, ARCUS CLAUDII (2) (search)
ARCUS CLAUDII (2) built by Claudius in 51/52 A.D. in commemoration of his victories in Britain (CIL vi. 920-923 =31203-4; Suet. Claud. 17; Dio lx. 19 ff., 22). It also formed part of the aqua Virgo, where this aqueduct crossed the via Lata, just north of the Saepta. It seems to have been in ruins as early as the eighth century, but in 1562, in 1641, and again in 1869 portions of the structure were found, including part of the principal inscription, inscriptions dedicated to other members of the imperial family, some of the foundations, and fragments of sculpture of which all traces have been lost. On coins issued in 46-47 A.D., as an ' intelligent anticipation' of events (BM Claud. 29, 32-35, 49-50; Cohen, Claudius 16-24), is a representation of an arch erected to commemorate these victories of Claudius, but whether it is this arch of the aqua Virgo is quite uncertain (HJ 468-9; LS iii. 125-6; PBS iii. 220-223). For reliefs recently discovered which may belong to it, see NS 1925,
e of his character most remarked by his contemporaries was, in his early boyhood, an energy that made him an acknowledged leader among his comrades; later, it was a self-contained dignity and reserved power that subjected affections, will, and passions, to the performance of duty. His eldest sister says of him that, when he was a boy, he was fearless and impetuous; but kind, affectionate, and just; amenable to reason, and deferential to age. Mr. J. G. Hickman, of Maysville, writing in 1869, after consulting all the old folk, says: My aunt and Mr. Lashbrooke remember General Johnston from his infancy; and they say, as indeed all say, that there was great promise about him from his childhood. He was a handsome, proud, manly, earnest, and self-reliant boy; and his success and distinction in after-life were only what were expected of him by those who knew him in his boyhood. Mr. Lashbrooke says he went to the same school with him, in 1811, to Mann Butler, a teacher of some di

Texas Almanac, 1869, p. 39. The Colonization Act of March 24, 1825, admitted Indians as settlers, when any of them, after having first declared themselves in favor of our religion and institutions, wish to establish themselves in any settlements that are forming. by law, with very little inconvenience to themselves and no derangement of the public business beyond its temporary suspension. President Lamar's message, 1839. The venerable Dr. Starr, then Secretary of the Treasury, writing to the author, in 1869, says: We there took position on the very verge of the territory in our actual possession, the Comanches disputing our advance by frequent raids into the immediate vicinity of the capital. There your father and I had our rooms in the same double
cated at Annapolis, and was an officer in the United States Navy up to the breaking out of the war, when he resigned his position in the navy and returned to his native State, Tennessee, to offer his services in her behalf. He served during the war as chief of artillery to Buckner, and afterward to Cleburne, and was wounded at Hoover's Gap. He subsequently entered the Confederate Navy as executive officer of the Florida. After the war he commanded a California merchant-steamer, and died in 1869. He was a kind and cultivated gentleman, and a gallant soldier. His young lieutenant, Morton, before the close of the war became chief of artillery to General Forrest. Darkness separated the combatants. Jordan, in his Life of Forrest (page 86), calls the works gained, the mere narrow foothold seized on the extreme right of the trenches. Buckner, however, considered it the key to his position, which it probably was. The loss of Lauman's brigade, exclusive of the Fifty-second India

His life had been well rounded out and his years were crowded with valuable service to his state and to his country. A gallant soldier, a great citizen, and a good man; the name of Joshua L. Chamberlain will through the years to come find place in the list of distinguished Americans. G. H. P. New York, April, 1915.

e. He was greatly and actively interested in all soldier societies and associations. He attended the reunions of the men who had been under his command in regiments from many states and his lecture on Little Round Top was repeated before delighted thousands throughout a widespread territory. He was early a member of the Grand Army of the Republic and was for a term Commander of the Department of Maine. When the Society of the Army of the Potomac was organized in the city of New York in 1869 he was selected as orator of the occasion and delivered an eloquent address on The Army of the Potomac before a large audience which included many officers of high rank. Here are extracts from the official report:-- With admirable tone and manner, and frequently interrupted by the appreciating and enthusiastic plaudits of a brilliant audience, General Chamberlain then delivered the first annual oration before the Society as follows:-- Comrades: You bid me speak for you.

here he rapidly recovered from the fright he had sustained, and astonished his followers by a proclamation as bombastic and empty as his fortunes were straitened and desperate. In support of the substantial accuracy of this narrative, I quote from the Life of Jefferson Davis, with a Secret History of the Southern Confederacy, Gathered Behind the Scenes in Richmond, by Edward A. Pollard, author of The lost cause, etc., an octavo volume bearing the imprint of the National Publishing Company, 1869: In the morning of the 2d of April, General Lee saw his line broken at three points, at each of which a whole Federal corps had attacked, and all day long the enemy was closing on the works immediately enveloping Petersburg. But the work, decisive of the war, was done in two hours. At eleven o'clock in the morning General Lee wrote a dispatch to President Davis, at Richmond, advising him that the army could not hold its position, and that preparations should be made to evacuate the Capit
