S W RLESANS ISUNDAY, MIAasH It. 174. "Is the meantime, listen farther," added S anlrs. What would the divine being who is thus expected, were he in this room, deem et this transaction before our eyes I You have heard the steward's account of the horse 8Jseus; you have heard Claudins's allusion to Y~dies Pollio'e lampreys. Now, you are a wbs,witty, and eloquent person, and you can " gteet me if I say wrong-in what is the s a whom the horse Sejanos, for instance, throew and tears to pieoes better than the S hbase In what is the man whom the lamp sega eat better than the lampreys T. I say b. horse and the lampreys are better Mtas the man, if mere power be a thing More to be esteemed and honored than what is right, and just, and honorable, and estimable; be the lampreys and the horne possess the gesatr might, most indubitably, in the cases amemntied. The elephant is stronger than v the bound is swifter, the raven lives much hlger. Either the mere power to do a thing deserves my esteem more than any other ob jest or ooqsideration, and, therefore, whoever ean trample down his fellowmen, and gratify all his brutal instincts at the expense of their lives, their safety, their happiness, their rea seable free-will, is more estimable than be we is jest, truthful, kind, generous, and no h" i-either, I say, the man who is strong eealtst his fellows is more good than he who is good-and the words justice, right, gentle aes% hathanity, honor, keeping faith in prom ems, pity for poor little women who are op peedg a.id brutally used, virtue, and such aises'male by my tongue against my palate, espgws nothing that can be understood, noth Lag in which any mind can find any meaning --either, I again say, the lampreys and the Itqan borse are more to be esteemed, and valued, and loved than my sister and my aother, or it is not true that the mere power of Tiberius combined with the brutish inclina tion to do a thing, terminates the question whether it is a right to do it. The moment I like to do any thing, if I can do it, it is neoes sarly right that I should do it t The moment two persons have a difference, it is right for either of them, and equally right for each of them, to murder the other I But if it was the intention of this great being, this god who is expected to appear immediately among ns, that we should be dependent upon each other, eack doing for the other what the other cannot de hr himself-and I am sure of it-then it wil please him, Dion, if I consider what is helpful and jest and generous. Or am I wreug? Is virtue a dream? Are contrary things in the same cases equally good t Are eatoary things in the same cases equally beautiftl ? "Art my brutish Instincts or inclinations, whikh vary as things vary round me, my only law! Is each of us intended by this great being to be at war with all the rest ? to regard the positive power each of us may have as our eels reetriction? to destroy and injure all the ithers by whom we could be served, if we ,+- fo8 our parts also serve and help t And mseet women, for instance, being the weaker, behretally used f Tell me, Dion, will it please thbgreat being if I try to render service to my fellow-men, who must have the same natu sal elaims to his consideration as I have ? or deea h wish me to hurt them and them to beet me, acoording as we may each have the 9oews t Is there nothing higher in a man than his external power of action? Answer-you en a philosopher." lbs eeeateaauoe of Dion blazed for one in Samt, if the light of a passing torch had been shed upen a mirror, and then resumed the les vivid effulgene of that permanent in- i telleetual beauty which was its ordinary r ehneateristit . He replied : "AU the philosophy that ever was taught -er thought could not lead you to truer cousinl stem.' " *Ia," returned Paulus, "come bick with Mo to the other end of the room ?" Sosaigna," sai# Paulus, "your kindness to sy sister sad mother, and your natural p*ebity, had something, I think, to do with beginning this trouble in which you and your iateded and yourselves. As you were not a imladful of us, it is but right that we should et be unmindful of you.

The Athenian, however, said he would show bip the way out of the alaoe. They went silent and thoughtful. In the Impluviam they found a little crowd surroudlag Augustus, who had returned from his prommade to the eamp, and who was throwing orunatbof lead among some pigeons near the central fountaino. Two ladies were of the company, one of whom, Lp advanced age, *as evidently the Empress Livia, but for whose lalpence and management Germanieue nly not her ungrateful son Tiberlus-would have been the next master of the world.. The o.her lady, who was past her prime, had still abundant vestiges of a beauty which must once have been very remarkable. She was painted red and plastered white, with immense care, to look some fifteen years younger than she truly was. Her countenance betrayed to a good pbyal ognomist, at first glance, the horrible life she had led. Paulus, whose experience was little, and, although she fastened upon him a flaming glance, which she intended to be fall both of condescension and fascination, thought that he had seldom seen a woman either more re pulsive or more insanely haughty. It was Julia, the new and abhorred wife of Tiberius. Not long before, at the request of Augustus, who was always planning to dispose of Julia, Tiberius had given up for her the only woman he ever loved, Agrippina Marcella. Tiberius so loved her, if it deserves to be termed love, that when, being thus deserted, she took another husband (Asinins Gallus,) he, mad with jealousy, threw him into a dungeon and kept him there till he died, as Beutonius and Tacitus record. "Ah, my Athenianl" said the emperor to Dionysius, placing a hand affeetionately on the youth's shoulder, " ould you satisfy me that those splendid theories of yours are more than dreams and fanioes; that really there is one eternal, all-wise, and omnipotent spirit, who made this universal frame of things, and governs it as an absolute monarch; that he made us; that in us he made a spirit, a soul a ghost, a thinking principle, which will never die; and that I, who am going down to the tomb, am only to change my mode of existence; that I shall not wholly descend thither; that an urn will not contain everything which will remain of me; and all this in a very different sense from that which poor Horace meant I But why speak of it T Has not Plato failed I" "Plato," replied Dionysius, "neither quite failed nor is quite understood, illustrious em peror. But you were saying, if I oould satisfy you. Be pleased to finish. Grant I could sat isfy you; what then 1" " Satisfy me that one eternal soveorign of the universe lives, and that what now thinks in me," returned the emperor, while the courtly group made a circle, " will never cease to think; that what is now conscious within me will be conscious forever; that now, in more than a mere poetical allusion to my fame-and on the word of Augustus Catsar, there is no reasonable request within the entire reach and compass of mny power which I will refuse you." " And what sort of a hearing, emperor," in quired Dion, "and under what circumstances, and upon what conditions, will you be pleased to give me and when T and where ?" "In this palace, before the games end," re plied Augustus. " The hearing shall form an evening's entertainment for our whole circle and attendance. You shall sustain your doc trines, while our celebrated advocates and or ators, Antistius Labiao and Domitius Afer, who disagree with them, I know, shall oppose you. Let me see. The CasOrs, Tiberius and 6er manious, with their ladies, and our host M-a. mnrra and his family, and all our circle, shall be present. Titus Livy, Luciusla Vars, Velleins Paterculus, and the greatest orator Rome ever produced, except Cicero" (the old man men tioned with watery eyes the Incomparable genius to whose murder he had consented in his youth)--" I mean Quintus Haterlus-shall form a jndicial jury. Haterias shall pro nounce the sentence. Dare you face such an qrdeal I' "I will accept it," replied the Athenian, blushing; " I will accept the ordeal with fear. Daring is contrasted with trembling; but, al though my daring trembles, yet my trepidation dares." "Oh! how enchanting!" cried the august Julia; " we shall hear the eloquent Athenian." and she clasped her hands and sent an unutter able glance toward Dion, who saw it not. " It will be very interesting indeed," added the aged empress. " Better for once than even the mighty com edy of the palace," said Lucius Varies. "Better than the gladiators," added Velleios Paterculus. "Au idea worthy of the time of Virgil and Macsens," added Titus Livy. "Worthy of Augustus's time," subjoined Tiberlus, who was leaning against one of the pillare which supported the gallery of the Im pluvium. "Worthy of his dotage," mattered Cneiue Piso to Tiberius, with a scowl. " Worthy," said a handsome man, with wary crisp brown looks, In the early prime of life' whose military tunic was eromed with the broad purple stripe, " worthy of Athens in the days of Plato; oand as Demosthenes addressed the people after listeeing to the reporter of 8oorates, so Hateries aball tell this odinpany what he thinks, after listening to Dion.' "Hateruls is getting old," msaid Haseries. "You may live," said Augustus, "to be a hundred, but you will aerer be old; Jast as ou Cneies Piso here never we. young." There was a laugh. The Rateries in que. tion was he to whom Bon Jonson compared Bhakespeare as a talker, and of whom, then past eighty, Augstuse need, Seneca tells u, to say that his careering thoughts resembled a chariot whee rVapidity thratened to set its own wheels en 4r and that he required to be held by a drag--" .q* ,mss sus.' Diesa new boe*id ad wes movia away,.fol Iowe t medtly by P's,, who plsed te I draw no attsestie to himself, when the terw ard, or mastaer, gllded quickly up the oolon sade of the implviuam to the pillar agaiast which Tiberius was leaning, whispered some thing, handed his tablets to the Cuasr, and, in answer to a glance Of surprised inquiry, looked toward and indicated Paulus. ' Tiberias immediately passeed Paulus and Dion, sayiag in an under tone, " Follow me," and led the way into a small empty chamber, of which, when the two youths bad entered it, he closed the door. "You are going to break the horse called Sejanus n" said he, turning round and standing. Paulus assented. "Then you must do so on the fourth day from this, in the review ground of the camp, an hour before sunset." Paulus bowed. " Have you anything to inquire, to request, or to observe " purnued Tiberius. "Am I to ride the horse muzzled, sir t" asked the yeuth. "The muzzle will be snatched off by a con trivance of the. cavasson, after you mount him," replied Tiberius, looking steadfastly at the other. " Then, instead of a whip, may I carry tny instrument I please in my hands i" demanaed Paulus; "my sword, for example In " Yes," answered Tiberius; "but you most not injure the horse ; he is of matchless price." "But," persisted Panlus, "your justice, il lustrious Cesar, will make a distinction be tween any injpry which the steed may do to himself and any which I may do to him. For instance, he might dash himself against some obstruction, or into the river Liris, and in try ing to clamber out again might be harmed. Such injuries would be nflicted by himself, not by me. The hurt I shall do him either by spear, or by sword, or by any other instrument will not be intended to touch his life or his health, nor likely to do so. If I do make any scars, I think the hair will grow again." "He will not be so scrupulous on his side," said Tiberius; "however, your distinction is reasonable. Have you any thing else to ask f" "Certainly I have," said Paulus; " it is that no one shall give him any food or drink, ex sept what I myself shall bring, for twenty-four hours before I ride him." Tiberius littered a disagreeable laugh. "Am I to let yon starve Sejanus I" he asked. "That is not my meaning sir," answered Paulus quietly. "I will give him as much corn and water as he will take. I wish to prevent him from having any other kind of provender. There are articles which will make a horse drunk or mad." "I agree," replied Tiberius, " that he shall have only corn and water, provided he have as much of both as roy own servant wishes; nor have I any objection that the servant should receive these articles from you alone, or from your groom." Paulus inclined his head and kept silence. " Nothing more to stipalate, I perceive," ob served Tiberius. The youth admitted that he had not; and, seeing the Casar move, he opened the door, held it open while the great man passed through, and then taking a friendly leave of Dion, hastily quitted the palace. Tiberius, meeting Sejanus, took him aside and said, " We have got rid of the brother I You must have every thing ready to convey her to Rome the fifth day from this. And now, enough of private matters. I am sick of them. The af fairs of the empire await me !" PART II. CHAPTER I. The die was cast, and Paulus went 'away plighted to an undertaking which appeared suflfciently arduous, and some of the chanees of which were even fall of horror. The qews of the arrangement spread throngh the palace of the Mamurras before he had well quitted Formits. From the palace it bironlated through the town, from the town it reached the camp the same evening; the next day the surrounding country knew it. Carrier pigeons had borne to Rome a hint of the gayeties, the interest, the splendor, which the simultaneous eoeurrence of the emperor's visit, and the col. lection of an army for real fighting purposes, (in fact, to repel the German invasion,) were likely'to call forth in theold Latian town; and now the same aeriel messengers apprised many a sated circus-goer in the capital that a very pretty novelty indeed would be added to the contests of gladiators and the battles of wild beasts. The concourse pouring into and converging from all parts toward Formins, which had al ready been so extensive, increased, therefore, into an enormous concentric movement. Noth ing can better show what a prodigious multi tude was thus accidentall collected, than the i fact that, even at Rome, (which then contained four millions 6f inhabitants,) a diminution of I pressure was perceptible, for the time, to those who remained. Thischange resembled what Londoners experience'on the Derby day. Paulas,.tbat evening, having passed a eon aiderable time with his mother and sister, (to whom he communicated the fact of hit engag Vmeat without aluralg thebi by explaininog its peuenliar horrors,) felt little inclined to sleep. When, therefore, the lanista, Thellas, who hbud, as Clan~l:rs said he would invite him to do, Ibrought back Benigna to Crispus's inn, was taking his leave of the Liady Aglais and of r JAgatha, Panlua said to him, "Do not gosoon; but come down into the' garden and let us take a stroll. We may not Soften be able to converse with each other her- rafter." " Gladly, my valiant youth," said Thellns; and they descended. A beautiful starry and moonlit night looked Sdown over Italy, as they saountered in the fra n grnat garden, conversing a little and then re a lapsing into thoughtful silence. Presently Thella said, '"Thls adventure of yours makes me un happy." , " Well," retpueed Pslas,," my mother aedi a 1 haeu5 meoset or y pue* te se - r feel aso levity about It myself. I confess that n- It is a grave business." at They now walked up and down the laurel a- alley a few turns, absorbed in thought. in Suddenly two men approsobhed them along sd two different gravel walks in the garden, one dressed as a slave, the other in the uniform of id a decarion, a legionary ofiloer, slightly more ," important than a modern sergeant of the line ir, in the English army. t, The slave had one of the worst countenances and the decurion one of the most' honest, that ad Paulus in his very limited or Thellua in his g. hnnmense experience had ever beheld. Paulus recognised the slave at once; it was that Lyg iy due who had endeavored to bring him to the P, ground by a side sweep of Cneias Piso's sword. which this man, as the reader will remember, was carrying at the time. t, The deourion gave Paulns a letter, directed in the same handwriting, folded in the same :d style, and its silk thread sealed with the same device of a frog, as a certain communication n which he had once before'received. nt The moon shone high, and so calm was the at night that it proved easy to read the bold characters. i7 They ran thus: id "Velleias Pateroolus, military tribune, sal utes Paulus Leplids Emilius. Renounce this at absurd engagement, which cannot concern you. ." It is yet possible, but will be too late to-mor t- row, to plead ignorance of what you were un e- dertaking. Leave wretched slaves to their to fate I-VAL." )r Paulus, after reading this note, begged the 1e deeurion to wait, and, turning to Lygdan, asked ?- his business. 1. The slave stated his name, and said he was f, appointed to receive, dating from the day after ,y the next, the provender which he understood It Paulus to be desirous of furnishing for the use is of the Sejan horse. " Has Tiberius Ciesar appointed you." ".Sir, Yes." " " Of course, then, you are used to horses f" " Sir, I have always belonged to the stable," I" said Lygdns. "t " But," pursued Paulus, " am I then forbid r. den to enter the stable myself, and make ac ir quaintance with the horse I have to break " "Sir, I have orders," answered this Lygdus -who, as I think I have already mentioned, i. was destined, as the instrument of Cneins Piso id and Planoina, some few years later, to be the h cruel assassin of Germanicus-" I have orders ,o always to admit you, and always to watch you." f " Iou to watch a Roman knight I" :e " For that matter, most honored sir," an swered Lygdus, "the rank of the person 11 watched does not altar the eyes of the watcher. ,s I could watch a Roman senator, or even a ,r Roman (Casar, if necessary." d "I will be security you could," said Thellus, a whose great and almost diaphanous nostrils quivered as he spoke." Lygdus, by way of answer, withdrew a pace. The deburion, meanwhile, had taken off his helmet, and the starry heavens were not more 1, clear than his indignant, simple countenance. "It is well," said Paulus. "I will ask for d you at Formin. Go now." f Lygdus therefore went away. " Decurion," said Paulus, " say to the es e teemed Velleias Paterculas that I am very grateful to him; but what must be, must be." i " And what is that, noble sir I" answered the e decnrion, "in case my commanding officer If should ask me for an explanation " "That I have given my word advertently and will keep it faithfully," replied Paulus. "Is this, noble air," said the decurion, " what you mean by that wich maust be." "Have I, then," Qnswered Paulus, "said any thing obscure or confused I" " Only something unusual, excellent sir," d said the decurion; "but not any thing con e fused or obscure. Permit me to add, that the whole camp knows the cirooumstances of this h miserable undertaking, and wishes you well; U and I feel in my single bosom the-good wishes d of the whole camp for your success." I " What is you; name, brave decnrion I" "o "Longlnus." I "Well," replied Paulus, "if I survive the 1s struggle with this creature, I mean to join the 15 expedition of Germanicuns Casar, and I will 1- have my eye upon you. I should like to be your informant that you were promoted to a re higher rank, and to call you the Centurion Longinus." ' Tears were standing in the Roman decurion's ry eyes as he bowed to take leave. oe Thellus and Paulus, being now left again Id alone, resumed their walk up and down the laurel alley. 8 "I am not so conversant with horses," ob I- served Thellus, "as I could for your sake at e, present wish to be. But all animals, I notice, h- are more quiet when blinded." ti- At this moment the branohes of a cro~walk he rustled, and a stately figure in the Greek ed oloak, approahobed them. of "Are you not E.milils, the nephew of the : triumvir T" uasked the stranger. at "Yes," replied Paulas. "Who is this 7" continued the new-comer, i- looking at Thellms. "I have something to say to which may conoern your safety." "You may trust this brave man," sald its Paulus; "It is my friend Thellas." iPi " Well," pursued the other, in a very low ld, tone, "take this little pot of ointment; and o, two hours o're you have to ride the Sejan !5 horse, go into a stable, make friends with of him, and rub as nostrils with the contents. He will be th muzzled, you know. You will he find him afte ard docile." Lot " Whom h e I to thank for so much interest re- in me 7" de uaded Panlus. "My nam is Charioles,n replied the straunger 's hesitating , and still spelaking almost in a wbisper; 'and I have the honor of numbering ed Dionysal of Athens among the best of my r- friends." re- "My m her," returned Paulus, "would, I think, be g to see you some day soon." " I shall it an honor; hut pray exeuse Lu- me to her to- ight," nid Charteles. "Tlberlas Ca'sr knows othig of ay oybease, 5as I ha ;S P~r isaa~. -": ·':" "But would this ointment injure the horse " inquired Paulus. "Not by any means," said Charoles; "it comes from a distant eastern land. It will merely make him sleepy. I have been more than an hour and a balf handling the ingre dients, and I canhardly keep awake mysl:. Forgive my harry-faewell." And the stately Greek madran obelisane as be disappeared. Paulus remained, holding the pet, which consisted of some kind of poroelabn, in his hand, and looking at it, when Thellos ex claimed : " Why, this laurel hedge is alive i" In a moment he had sprung through it and returned, dragging in his mighty grasp Lygdas the slave. " Not yet departed " said Thellus. "Sir, I was asleep," replied the slave, with a look of terror. " I'have but to tighten my fingers," cried Thellus, "and you will sleep so as not to awake in a hurry." " Thellas," observed Paulus, " I am not de pending either on this man's knowledge or on this man's ignorance. I have quite other hopes and other grounds of confidence. Let him go." "Ah I" said Thellas, "I would like to have the chastising of you. But go, as this noble gentleman desires; go, then, as the young Roman knight bids you 1" He shook the reptile-headed, down-looking, and side-looking slave away, and the latter. disappeared. " Ofriend and noble sir l" said Thellus, " it nearly breaks my heart to see you thus bound hand and foot, and doomed to destruction." " Have a good heart, dear Thellas," said Paulus. so they parted, the gladiator returning to his vehicle, and Paulus retiring to his room, where, as he lay on his bed and listened to the plash of the fountain in the implavium, he silently and calmly offered back to the great unknown God whom Dionyslus worshipped the life which he, that unknown Deity, could alone have given.
