Tneir history is most obscure, and it is not w ith
corl.iiu'.y know ti whence they came or by what'
itopj they descended In thoif present level. It'
see. ns certain, how ever, that tin y belong to tin
Mt'ic family of wan.lerers that a,e kn,,vv 11 in Lgypl
ns li.1yar.1- in H uig irv n Zing iri, in Uerniain as
igeuiior, iu Spain as (litano. in 1'i ince ns U die-,
mi.ins. nud in Kuj.;lun I ns Lipsics. Their own
traditions derive them from Syria, whence liny,
were transported iu the eighth century, by one ol
tho Greek emperors, to 'I nr.ue. On iwcount ol
some peculiarities iu their manner.-, perhaps ol
some utr iuge forms tf d Ktrine, they seem to have
bcc inie ib-teiie l and despised bv neighboring na
tiuUM, and espemlly by the Mohiimiiieilaiis. When ,
iho Turks penetrated into their territory, in-tead '
of merely renuiring tribute from tlo'in, they nt-t-icked
them with fury, di-peri-ed them, hunted
thciU dovvu like w ild be.i-ts, nml condenined those
to perpetual servitude whose lives they spared.

gcd by the
Christians: who share J, indeed tho greater part of.
ma liowiy iun,io fcoru among inoinwives, n is
cstiiuatcd that lit present there uro more
twent-tlirco thousand Zigan families in Mold,:-:
Wallachia, cmnprisilig alsiut a hundred nnd hlty
thousand souls. A certain number ol theso belong

Jhoy sell or exchange them at ceitani live. I pcrmds
of the year, bringing them like entile to market
until lately, they treated Ihein with such severity
thnt thoy iiot uufrciiiontly drove then, to suicide.
Many ll iyaids of humane character now grant u
senii-liborty to their Zigans, uHmi ing them for so
much a year to go about lis they please, reeking
fur work, nnd retaining the produce t f it. Once
every spring, tho liall-cnfiiiiiclii-ed slave iniisl

Leon rejoctei by tho icullicin.
A is the case in iinuy sav age tribes, the women
are either extremely ug.v or extremely handsoiue.
Most of tho Zigaua nro Lcauli.ul up to the iij.e i
twenty ; but, niter th it time, they suddenly shrink
un l sliiivel. ch.vngo colour, I elid, nnd lose the
lightness of their step, as if an en -Ii inter's wand
had chnngoJ thciu fruni vouih, nlmired nml wooed
to dishonored old age. Tim dies of these women
is po.-uliur, consisting generally of nothing but
tight tunic or I.o.Irc undo of sheepskin, and
carcely roaching to llm kn-es. h l"ves their
legs, their arms, an 1 their ne ks bare. Over their
boa.U the most coM.,ntish thiovv white veil, and
nmn few indub-e iu leather s indals. As orna-:
menu they weir earrings of brass liiligi eo, neck-
laces of p iras strung upon a sieinfor lining, and
tariotv of metal b'.'aoolets. 1 he children go naked
up to Ihe ago of ten or twelve, and ,v ho.,t swarms

In fine weather the Zigan is n very independer.t
being. Ho sloeps in the open nir, in the forest-,
in tho fields, in the streets of the towns anywhere,
in fact, w here he can find a pi n o to lay bis head.
However, it i their custom, lor the summer season,
to orojt little sheds of canvas, of straw, of branch
e, or of mud; whilst in winter they scratch deep
Holes in ihe earth, which they root with reels and
turf. Their furniture is surpri .ingly simple, con-!
