Under the Protection of Jupiter.
Ut pariter nobis corpus cum sanguine crescit. ---Lucretius.
Thou too, O Earth, great Rhea said, bring forth ;
In silent horror o'er the boundless waste
Sad was the hour, and luckless was the day,
Making his way between the cup and golden diadem.---Spenser.
Awake, awake, my Lyre !
In sounds that may prevail ;
Though so exalted she,
And I so lowly be,
Hark! how the strings awake :
Themselves with awful fear,
Now all thy forces try,
Now all thy charms apply,
Weak, Lyre ! thy virtue sure
To cure, but not to wound,
Too weak too wilt thou prove
My passion to remove,
Sleep, sleep again, my Lyre !
In sounds that will prevail;
All thy vain mirth lay by,
Bid thy strings silent lie,
The scentless and the scented Rose ; this red,
The Court of Flora.

The Months. The fifth Roman month (Quintilis), received its present dignified appellative from Julius, the Cæsar, by a posthumous act of the senate ; for in this potent month he had his birth. It agrees with the first month, Muharram, of the Arabs and Turks ; with the fifth moon, Epiphi, of the ancient Egyptian year; with the eleventh histori. cal month, Ah, of the Jews; with the eleventh moon, Behen, of the Persians; with the eleventh moons, Lous, Esthius, and Aphrodisius, of the Syro-Macedonians, Paphians, and Bithynians; with the eleventh moons, Hamlt, Abii, and Maryats, of the Abyssinians, Copts, and Armenians ; with the tenth solar month, Tamus, of the Syrians; with the second month, Metagitnion, of the Athenians; the eleventh, Gorpæus, of the Macedonians, and the seventh, Panemus, of their solar year. By the Germans and Hollanders it is named Hooy (in English hay) month.

The Noumenia, were Grecian games observed at the commencement of every lunar month, or the new moon, in honour of all the gods, heroes, and dæmons; but especially of the great Apollo, surnamed Neoménius.
The Metagitnia was a festival in this month celebrating the virtues of Apollo Metagitnius, and kept by those inhabitants of Melite, who left their residences and settled in Attica; as the name implies, a removal from one neighbourhood to another. So in the Roman Calendar the calends of July was the legal or periodical day appointed for (as we say) moving ; the “ migrationes in alienas ædes.”
Vespasian is proclaimed at Alexandria, by the governor of Egypt (in opposition to Vitellius); which is the date of his accession to the Empire, B.C. 69. The general was then at Cæsarea, the capital of Judæa, where, two days later, he who had fought thirty battles on British ground, and reduced two powerful nations and twenty towns, with the Isle of Wight, under the yoke of Rome, was saluted by the legions.
Crichton's death is placed by Urquhart on the 27th Feb. at the Carnival. Never reveal your secrets to any, except it, be as much their interest to keep them, as it is yours they should be kept.-Isocrates.
