"Leave that to me," said I'atcroultus. And, patting Clandius on the shoulder, the student dismissed him, finished a paragraph of his llitorioal Abridgemenit, and went to bed. Two days later, Srj:atus, Cneins Pl'i,t Lucius, blehis brother, Governor of Home, w ith Veilcius Paterculus, and some other oflicers of high rank, were in attendance upon Tiberis Ciesar, I While various subordinates lounged in an ante room. " Germanicus demands," observed Tiberins, " that the Piattorians should be in readinests to repel the barbarians from Rome itself. Does not this look ugly ?" "Public alarsm before the struggle," mut tered Sejanus, " enhances public delight at the victory." " He lays also," continued Tibetius, " great stress on the necessity of supplying him largely with money. We know the condition of the treasury. lie eispatched the youth Paulus to Rome, did be not, on money business for the army ?" As no one replied, 'lberius resumed: "Well, Lucius Pl'e,, I have nothing but ap proval to express conoeruinfg your nmoasulreC for the protection of Rome. You can go. We all return to town to night. Our public businese is over for this morning." Lucius Piso, with l.is brother Cucius, and all the officers, except Sv4j.tnns and Paterculus, now took leave, after which, at a sign fronm Tiberiuo, young Mar.tts Lepidus was admitted. IHe showed much artificial firmness in that ter rible presence. But he was obliged to intro duce, as forming palt of merely domestic news, the information which the cunning that often attends baseness had convinced him would be secretly valued by Tiberius. lie was obliged to do this because he instantantouoly felt that Tiberius would acknowledge no interest what ever of his own in the movements of the ladies who were at Monte Circello; and presently when the youth detailed the stratagem of the two boys attired as females in the boat, he was astonished to see Paterculus glance with meaning smile at Tiberius, and the latter ed in grave assent. was the only person, you may remember, m' Caesar." said Patorculus, " who argued that all these circumstances might be a blind. And as to the residence, meantime, of the gallant and noble youth Panlus's AEmnilius's kinswoman, you will also remember my re mark." " You thought it was Circello," said Tiberius, " and I could not believe you. It seems they are at Circello still." "That last point," quoth Velleius, " is the only one wlticl admits of a doubt. They have since had time to sail for Spain in good earn east." " It is of no conR tquence.," observed Tiberius. And he then, with a nod, dismlissed young Marcus. The latter, rejoining Hlerod Agrippa and some other youthful courtiers, who woull have rejoiced in the disgrace of a sman of letters like Paterculus, astounded thenm by an account of the short Interview, the very shortness of which was itself, indeed, also a asnlject of surprise to them. Once mere alone, Tiberine looked in deep thought front Sejanus to l'aterculus, and was at length on the point of speaking when the latter anticipated him. " Permit mte to mneutitt, mty (Catar," said he, " that I have formecd such an admiration for be magnificent cousin of the selfnsuflicient lad who has just retired, and I feel also suclh interest in his mother and sister, that I could wish by every tmteats to serve, hnefit and please that family.

The commander-inoble[ bad 0 both a precautionary and an aggressive design, ' In the execution of which these galleys, which 0. had once before played a memorable part at w the sea-battle of Actium, were to be used. I After stationing, freighting, and manning the a galleys, and giving orders for the employment i of them in a certain contingency, be returned a to the shore, mounted his horse, and held a it review of the legions. The review over, he addressed the troops in a spirit-stiroing speech. ti Germanicus was rather an eloquent man, i above all, hbe was facile and ready. lie was A just rlosing his short improvisation, when he noticed in the distance, coming toward the h camp at a trot along the Bologna Road, a dust- c covered rider. There was no mistaking either h the horse or the horseman. Germanicus t: recognized the newly-appointed staff-officer, n Paulus Lepidns umilius; and concluding that he had hastened forward to report the safe arrival of the expected treasure, he turned k again to the troops, and told them that he a would distribute a bounty within a very few n days, the value of a fortnight's pay, but not v deducted from nor interfering with the regular t pay; and this to all. tl At so pleasant an announcement, t im- f, mlense shout arose among the legions; and it h was in the midst of the cheering that Paulus b reached the camp, and, uncovering his head, u saluted the commander in-chief, who was riding forward to meet him, after having thus a committed and pledged himself before the e legions. (. " Welcome !" said G(rmanicus; adding in a low voice, " The treasure is not far behind, of I, course T It will be hero to-night, I suppose T" n "4I regret to say, general-" began Paulus. b "What!" interrupted (Germanicus, with con- c siderablo excitement of manner, " have you a not brought the treasure T Is not the money i here o" " " No, General," returned Paulus; " but be a pleased to hear what hras occurred." a "Did not the Jew fulfill his undertaking T" a again broke in Germanicus. - " lie did, and delivered to me the treasure; a and in all particulars, except one, general, I 1 fulfilled your orders." t "W hat was that one?' asked the Clesar, c with an exceedingly dark and wrathful face. " I did not carry the money in an iron box.'' " " Go on; tell me everything. I will bear you to the end," said Germanics, compressing t his lips and clinching his right hand. "The facts are very soon told, general," re sumed Paulus. "We could muster but ten legionaries, making, with Chierias, Longinus and myself, our whole escort. By some means, it transpired from the Jew's house that a large treasure was about to be sent to the army, and a number of desperadoes in the Suburra de termined to waylay us. Indeed, we were attacked by seventy armed men, not far from the town of Sora, beyond the other end of Laky Thrasymene, reckoning from here." Germnanicus could no longer control his ex citement ; he exclaimed: "And so they took the treasure from you and you are here alive, unwounded, reporting your little adventure!" " I think somebody else, general," srlid Paulus, " would have reported that result for Ime; the treasure is safe." "1I the name of the Splynx," exclaimed the astounded commander-in-chief, " explain yourself; you did not defeat seventy armed men with fourteen I" "No, general ; we parleyed, and argued, and gained time, and finally surrendered the iron chest andt the wagon containing it ; but the money was not there. It was the only point in which I ventured to deviate from my in structions." As our adventurer thou told the various devices lie had employed, and the fortune which had attended them, Germanicus listened with the deepest attention and whenever Paulus seemed, through modesty, to abridge or hasten over his narrative, called for every particular, and asked many minute questions. When the whole story had been told, and all his inquiries had been answered, Germanicus said : "1 only Ilhope I may show such good general. Ssillp on a large scale as you have shown on a snmall one. It is lik-'ly I shall bo able to give you an illlportant pot soon.'' lie then called to an ofic-er, n:uni'd P'rtinax, aid l ite him coindiuct Pault, to his quarters, and to present Iiii as their cecttuion to tho fourth celntlti.t of the legion to which lie was ansinod. le said Paahulus would nild refresh neunt, aindl could consider the timle his owin till daibreak, wmihenii there would lihe an escoit of lifiv hr,,' re:ady for himn, asnd pl'ied under his ordvers at ile west gate of the camilip.

It consisted of I th most silent, discreet, and gossipa-scorning ofilcers of a certain ramlk ii (lermanicus's airy. Tlie l stouats who, riding "mall hardy African horars, busd gone fturward seventy, e and smiiii oif thnlui even a hundred, niles beyond tlhe VIenetli.il tlelritory ilmto that of the Slitiatin Alp I, had brouglht back an important h pic oif lieus. The sulbstlll:Ineo of it was this: at 1the t,,, ol o , Lao k ardsI thaL harbaiimnc, aecording to their cuiitmii, had br,,kin into two large biliea. 'Partly on accouiltt of the geaiuter facility of obtainiing .mielemiance and prlllder, b-eenlis they would aisle a wider arma of the country ; prtrly in order to march i',more rapidl) ; li-.tlly fTlo'i a radically fE.ls Si alld lfaul shrtr.agic nmo'iv,', they had there 5 it idsuh-d, i:iteninilitg to ravage both the bohdirr ofi ., the lak., aid to take the ilpluerial army as d if ill a pair of tongs, or a forceps, at the I- southrmrn end. Meanwhtile, a large sail.-boat a had come across the Adriatic from Illyrloue, conveying two or three of the Roman offilcersa who had escaped from destruction. These t ofilcers, being examined, had stated that the c whole of that province was for the moment t lost, that the garrison bad been massacered, a and that the barbarians, who at first had t intended to cross the sea in galleys and land e an immense force near Ravenna, or south of a it, near I'ortss Classia, finding that the Libur- I nian craft had been all withdrawn to Italy by a the prudence of Gerumanius, were now swarm- a ing through Ilistria, tound the head of the I Adriatic. r The tidings agreed. Gerumauicus explained t his plan as detailed below, and asked his r council their advice upon it, remarking that I he had forty thousand effective umen, and that a the hordes with whom they were to contend might perhaps number three times as many. I " But half three times as many," added he, I " make only sixty thousand men; and we know from long experience that we are gener- I ally equal to twice our own numbers. We I must, however, avoid being struck by allthat I vast hbrde simultaneously; and I conceive that we have now an opportunity of fighting the barbarians in two separate armies, success fully, with the whole of our own force. They have committed a mistake, and frequently the I best thing a general can do is to wait for such mistakes, and take advantage of them. " A few miles north of Verona, there is a narrow, marshy, and difficult pass, between the eastern shore of the lake and the river Athesis (Adige). " I have sent forward the best part of one legion, with plenty of spades and axes. Any number of wild Germar.is, marching upon us between the lake and the river, will there he checked and brought to a stand for weeks by such a force as I have sent, when it shall be well established behind earth-works. I mean at once to march, with every available man remaining, round the southern end of the lake, and to turn northward by our right hand, so as to meet our visitors on the other, the western shore, where they will not seize us in a pair of tongs, as they hope and have said, but must fight us front to front. If we beat them effectually, as I calculate we shall, we can return rapidly; and being near this end of the lake, and having four times a shorter road, we shall reach our detached legion above Verona long before the fugitives on the oppo site route can rejoin the assailants of the de tached legions. We will then change the defence of that position into offensive action. " You have heard my plan," concluded Ger manions. " Give me your advice. I require the youngest present, my new message bearer, Paulns Lepidue amilina,.to speak the first." " General," said Paulus, ' the plan seems to me to be sound. I may mention to the other officers, my seniors, that Germanicas Caesar for the moment has discharged me from being his message-bearer and has appointed me to command the greater part of one legion, stationed at the marshy pass between the eastern shore of the lake and the river; I shall therefore not share in your first battle. All I would ask of our general is tolut mu have sixty or seventy carpenters and artificers, pne more balister for shooting stones, and three more catapults for darts andt for the tritax." " What is your purpose ?" asked Germani ces. " My men," replied Paulus, " have already, by using the axe and spade, made their posi tion very strong with felled timber andI earth between the lake and the river. I expect the enemy to arrive in front of it shortly after my return to the post ; and I am in great hopes, as they cannot at this season soon get upon our flanks or rear, and must attack us upon a very narrow face, that a handful of Roman soldiers will be as good as thoneands of savages. But I should be still more confident of holding my ground if I could turn one of their flanks." IIere Paulus forthwith was interrupted by a general laugh, and Oermanicus exclaimed: " Are you so oblivious of the very first rudi ments of fighting? You, with about three quarters of one legion, turn the flank of fifty or sixty thousand barbarians! Again the grim old otlfficers forming the council laughed. Paulus reddened, alnd with a slight bow, in a slow and deliberate way, said: "I want the artilicers to c,mutliv mete a large raft, on whlich I will place the balikta aind the three catalpults. I h'-\ obtained two shall row boats. They shall be ttgi to my raft. I will have the raft towed iup the lake. on my left hanld, a little be3uond the front or face-lineo of my smtall fortiicatitmu, out of reach of any hand-darts frlom the shore, and well secured against arrows, but the shore will be within the easy and powerful range of our own in struments, or torimenta, upon the raft. When the Germans attack uto in front, their owu. right will he galled altd tormented front the lako. This is what I call trniitig their right flank. I only wish we could have a similar establishment on the Adige, to turn their left flank also." A sudden and frank tmurmur of applause stcceeded to the previous derision, and the officers expressed their approval of Paulus's proposal. Germanticus took the sanme view, and gave orders that our adventurer should he supplied as he hadl askedl; after which the council neparated. We teid not detail the milhtary operations which followed. The Caosar won a great vic tory where, about eighteen hundred years af terward, Napo!eon, by very similar strategy, gained several others But instead of imme diately returni:ig round the southern end of the lake, as at first he had thought of doing, hie fiountd he had time to do better; he pursued the etemuy into the Rhetian Alps, dispersed them comnpitetly, and, making a short and sharp dlthetion over the top of Lake Bunasen oir Guarda, mtarched back to the south along its oel'iosite or eastern shore. This nmovoment brought hint, one evening, upon the rear .f the other German army, who thought at first that a large rrinforcement of their countr mten were joining them ; aad being attacked before they could at all anderatand who the assail. ants were, and as(itened on both flanks be- t tween the lake and the river, while a fortifl- a cation which they had not yet been able to t take by assault prevented them from flying A southward, they sustained one of the most 'I terrible overthrows that a Roman army bad c ever inflicted upon barbarians. Many were a slain, many drowned, having taken to the lake. A considerable numberswam the Adige d and escaped. The rest threw down their arms a and claimed the mercy of the victors. The Roman general immediately ordered the car- e nage to cease, the wounded to be removed, and e the prisoners to bhe secured. Had Germanicus not made the circuit of the lake, but simply returned round its southern extremity, he would have attacked the front of the second German army instead of its rear; and, its I retreat being open, its losses would have been c less. On the other hand, had Germanicus, with the plan actually adopted, been beaten, t he must have been completely destroyed. But he felt morally sure of the victory, partly t through the effects of surprise, which was a 1 strategical reason; and partly because, in a crowded hand-to-hand encounter upon a con fined field, no weapons were equal to the short Roman sword and large buckler; and this was a tactical reason. Indeed, the bayonets of modern warfare would not have been equal to those without firearms. A soldier in our times must have his rifle, and he could not carry this and a shield and a sword too; the bayonet, therefore, is merely more handy as an adjunot to what has itself become indispensable. Still, might it not be worth while to add to a modern army a thous and or two thousand or five thousand men, armed in the old Roman fashion, with one small revolver of the best now pattern stzck in every soldier's belt ? This body of men could not be used on every occasion ; but where, front the accidents of the ground, they could first be brought (unexposed to fire) close up to the enemy, and then precipitated upon the flank of a thin infantry line, they would double it upon itself, and destroy it before the bayonet-carriers knew what was.the matter. CHAPTER IX. - Torrents of rain had fallen during the night, and during the next forenoon following this great battle; Germanicus, at midday, when the rain had ceased, called the legions into parade; saw more than thirty thousand effective men mus tered after his two battles and the severe forced march which had intervened. The general thanked his army, and made a short speech, in the course of which be re marked that, although they bad already re ceived one bounty, they should certainly have another forthwith. This was cheered with a violent outbreak of shouting and admiration, as a very sweet piece of oratory; and a veteran file-leader turned to the soldier behind him, and remarked that Germanicus knew how to speak almost as well as Julius Cmsar was re puted to have done. When the ncise of their 1:terary and critical enthusiasm had subsided, Germanicus proceeded to read a list of pro motions. lie appointed two leyati, or generals, and directly afterwards called out, in a thunder ing tone, the namne of PaulusLopidus.oFmilius. No answer. There was a pause. " Is Longinus the decarion here f" he next asked. Longinos was absent on account of a severe but not dangerous wound. No answer came, and another pause ensued. " Is the decorion Thellus present ?" cried the Cmsar. "Adaun,," answered Thellus, advancing a step beyond the ranks. "You are wounded," said Germanicus. " How is it that no surgeon has extracted that broken dart from your shoulder " "'Tis only the point of a little German thistle," said the stalwart arena-king. I hardly felt it when it stuck in me during our great mowing match yesterday." 'The legionaries laughed and cheered. " What has become of the youth who com manded your intrenchment ?" pursued the commander-in-chief. "lHe is badly wounded, general; and, as I could not find where he lay till daylight, the taiu had been drenching him all night long; I am rather afraid he'll go." (ermanieus ordered a doctor at once to ac company Thellus, and render what succor he could to the wounded youth. Iln, moreover, bade Thellus inform Paulus that, on account of services to the army now assembled, both in sc:lring a large treasure, which only for himn would have been lost,and in contributing afterward to the success of the campaign, and all this as much by his prudence as by his courage, he considered him not only to have given a splendid example, but to have shown the qualities of a soldier whom it is for the interest of the troops to see promoted. " The more authority persons like this youth Paulus, possess," concluded he, " the bettelr and the safer it is for the whole army." r lie thereopon declared Paulus from that mo Sment to be a military tribune. The announcement evidently pleased the troops. : Thereupon, Thellus led the doctor to a hut a Smile away, whither he and two or three sol Sdiers had carried Paulus. The yonog man was i lying sithout motion or conscionsness upon a rude pallet. The doctor looked at his wounds which were numerous about the chest-not sone of them muortal in itself-but such as had - caused great loss of blood. So many hours - passed undier the heavy rain of the preceding night, and the delay which had occurred be - fore the wounds could be attended to, made Sthe case dangerons. However, the medical Soficer ordered whatever his science stuggested I and then left the hut, promising to pay an I ether visit in the evening. SThe commander-in chief, not having any Sthing to fear from the broken remains of the : horde which he had dispersed, sent back most Sof the troops toward the south to take up their fwinter quarters in various towns, lie had Sall the wounded who could bear removal re Smoved; and for those whom he was forced to leave behind he built a wooden hospital, to protect whieh a small guard wu asalged. He then took a few mounted servants with him, and, crossing the Po, by a bridge at Mantuas, traveled very fast on horseback aoross the Apennines to Rome, whither Augustus and Tiberius had returned, and whither Germani .us was thus the first to bear an authentic account of his late operations. A solemn triumph would readily have been decreed to him, had he not (partly through modesty, and partly through a politic fear of yet further exasperating the suspicious jeal ousy and hatred of Tiberius) refused it per emptorily. (To be continned.) Hope. The ancients raised temples to Hope. Some Roman medals represent her under the figure of a young girl, holding a flower in her hand. In bas reliete, also, she is sometimes seen lean ing with her right hand upon a column, and the other bearing poppies and ears of corn. Sometimes she is winged. Niecamp affirms that in the Tamoul language there is no word which expresses the idea of hope; but this is a statement which we can hardly believe. He cannot have searched enough, or he would have found one. There is no nation that does not live on hope and de sire. There is no existence so miserable that it does not conceal in some obscure corner the small bright light which shines under the heavy weight of all the evils at the bottom of Pandora's box. This allegory of Pandora is one of the most beautiful with which Hope inspired the old poets. Hesiod borrowed it from one of the most ancient traditions of Asia. Hope, always young, is, like love, as old as the world. Aunother poetical idea of the ancients was making Hope the sister of Sleep, who eases our pains, and of Death, who ends them. The sentiment of hope is one of the most delicate and most ideal in our inner life, so that there is hardly any poet who has not celebrated it. Spenser, in the "Fairy Queen," represents her as a young girl, pleasing to look upon, clothed in a light garment, her beautiful hair confined by a network of gold, and wet with dew, which she sprinkles upon those who follow her. Cowpor speaks of her as flying upon mighty wings to the garden of Paradise, where she plucks never-fading fi,wers, and ssatters them in the path of weary mortals in garlands like those that bind the brows of the glorified spirits in heaven. Campbell sings her praise in grander strains than any: "And, mark the wretch, whose wanderings never knew The world's regard, that soothes, though half untrue, Whose erring heart the lur. of sorrow bore, But found not pity when It err'd no more. Yon friendless man, at whose dejected eye Th' unfeeling proud one looks-and passes by; Condemn'd on Penury's barren path to roam. Seora'd by the world, and left without a home Even be. at evening, should he chance to stray Down by the hamlet'. hswthornrsoentedsway. When, round the eot's remntic glade am seen The hlseom'd bean field and the sloping green Leans o'er its humble gate, and thinks the while Oh I that for me some home like this would smile, Some hamlet shade, to yield my sickly form health in the breeze, and shelter in the storm I There should my hand no stinted boon assign To wretched hearts with sorrow such as mine I- That generous wish can soothe unpitied care, And Hope half mingles with the poor man's prayer." 'Eternal Hope whsen yonder spheres sublime Pealed their first notes to sound the march of Time, Thy Joyous youth began-but not to lade- Waen all the sister planets have decayeod ; When rapt in tire the realms of ether glow, And Heaven's last thunder shakes the world belol; Thou. undismayed shalt o'er the rules smile, And light thy torch at nature's funeral pile."
