The Vesta! Virgins.
The origin of the vestals dated from the
foundation of Rome. The mother of
KoiuuIih was supposed to have been one. ,0
Their number was six, and they were to be i |v
' without blemish and deformity. They
i were chosen very young, from the ago of
I six to ten. If a sufficient number of can;
didates did not present themselves, lots 8
j ivriv cum iiinuii;; twenty scjcci \ trains, itllU
those un whom tlio lot fell wore compelled j
to take 011 themselves the oftiec of priestess.
; For thirty years they remained virgins; ten ?>'
, of these years were spent in learning their
i duties; the next ten in performing thein; j as
! and the in instructing those who had ^
entered the noviciate. At the expiration |
I of this period their vows of celibacy were j w
no louger biuding, and they wore permitted
I to retire from their office. The employ- 1 '
ment of the vestals was to watch ?he fire of -
Wstn, and prevent its being extinguished, ^
j which, if it should happen, was regarded ' 1
as a great calamity ; and the lire was again , 10
kindled by the rays of the sun through a tn
a burning-glass. The vestals also had
charge of the palladium, a statue of Minerva,
supposed to have la'ticn from heaven.
The dress of the vestals was a white ve-t,
with purple borders, a white surplieo, and, ' Sl
ii . ? ' A
overall, a ureal purpie mantle, flowing to
I tlie frivuml. They wore :? close covering
I 011 their heads, culled insult).; from which tl
j hung ribbons. If any of the vestal virgins <
proved incontinent, they were sealed up in
; a cave under ground, in which was a bed,
i a lamp, and a little bread and wine, vherc ni
they were left to perish ; but during the
, space of a thousand years this punishment j
was inflicted only eighteen times. The '
vestals possessed many privileges. The
most honorable seats at public games and
| festivals were allotted tlieni j they rode in
| chariots; and it by chance they mot a crim'
( inal proinp to execution ; lie was innnctli- a
' , ately pardoned. (i reat deference was pahl :i
"* them by the people; and it was a capital .
' 1 crime to insult one. If any of them died i ?
1 / while in oftice, the body wn? buried within j ^
the city, an honor granted to but few.

j Punch's Change to tiik Jury.?Au ;
i exchange paper republishes the following , b
3 "charge" which came from the London : d
) Punch some fifteen years ago. Notwith- i r
s ! standin? ?i?tTr|\iiij or the document, it i ^
r j is a "model" charge, so far, at least, as it I
. I possesses the merit of leaving the jury un- |
i , biased in their deliberations upon a verdict: | a
i I (Icnticmcn of the Jury : You arc sworn c
- ! in nil eases to decide according to the evi- I
i j dencc; at the same time, if you have anv !
I . t 'I
doubt, you arc bound to give the prisoner t s
the benefit of it. Suppose you have to ' r
^ ; pronouuci^ on the guilt or innocence of a j
i> gentleman accused of felony. You will , 11
1 naturally doubt whether any gentleman j I
} would commit such ofl'encc?accordingly, \ ?
- however strong may be the testimony against s
s him, you willt perhaps, acquit him. Tho ! t
- i evidence 01 your own senses is, at least, as u
e credible- as that of the witnesses; if, there;
fore, you eyesight convince you that the e
s prisoner is a well-dressed person, you have f
- ! a right t presume his respectability; and
: ' it is for you to say whether a rcspcctablo f
', person would be likely to be guilty of tho a
crimes imputed to him. To like manner, ' v
1 when you see a shabby-looking fellow in 1
a the dock, charged, for example, with sheep o
1 stealing, the decision rests with you, first, v
- whether or not that individual is a raga- h
- I niuflinj and, secondly, how far it is probable
i mat a man of'that description would steal f
r sheep. Of course, as has been before said,
t you will always be guided by the evidence j a
i but, then, whether the evidence is trust3
worthy or not, is a matter for your private ii
- consideration. You may believe it if you
i choose, or you may disbelieve it; and
c whether, gentlemen of the jury, you will
c believe it or disbelieve it, will depend on t
s the constitution of your minds. If your
- | minus are so constituted tliat you wish to ?
1 I find tlic prisoner guilty, perhaps you will
, believe it; if they happen to be so consti)
tilted that you desire to find him not guilty, (.
p why then, very likely, you will disbelieve' a
it. You arc to free your minds from all
- passion and prejudice if you can, and, in t
i that case, your judgment will be unbiased ;
but if you cannot, you will return a verdict
accordingly. It is not, strictly speaking, y
for you to consider what will be the cfi'eet
j- of your verdict; but if such a consideration
I should occur to you, and you cannot help j
to it, that VOldiOl will 1)0 IllflU- |
(i I enccd by it to a certain extent. You arc
( I probably aware that when you retire, you
) will be looked up until you contrivo to h
agree. You may arrive at unanimity by e
^ fair discussion, or by some of you starving si
] out the others, or by tossing up, and your a
j conclusion, by whichever of these processes
arrived at, will be more or less in aceor- q
' danec with your oaths. Your verdict may t(
'' be right; it is to be hoped it will; it may
s i tie wrong; it id to be hoped it will not. At ^
s I all events, gentlemen of the jury, you will 0
j j come to sonio conclusion or other ; unless /
f | it should bo hippen that you separate with- j,
