Translate into Latin Prose :

When it was announced, that the detachment was bringing Syphax to the camp, the whole multitude poured out, as if to the sight of a triumph. He preceded the rest in chains, and was followed by a number of noble Numidians. On this occasion, everyone spoke in the most exalted terms of the greatness of Syphax, and the fame of his nation ; thus exaggerating the renown of their victory. “ That was the king,” they said, “ to whose dignity the two most powerful states in the world, the Roman and Carthaginian, had paid such deference; that for the sake of procuring his friendship, their own general, Scipio, leaving his province and his army, sailed with only two quinqueremes to Africa ; and the Carthaginian general, Hasdrubal, not only visited his kingdom, but also gave him his daughter in marriage. That the Roman and Carthaginian generals had been within his grasp at one and the same time. That as both parties had, by the offer of sacrifices, solicited the favour of the immortal gods, so his friendship had been equally sought for by both. That he lately possessed power so great as to enable him to expel Masinissa from his kingdom ; and to reduce him 10 such a state, that his life was preserved by a report of his death, and by lurking in concealment, while he was obliged, like a wild beast, to live in the woods on prey.” Such were the discourses of the throng, through which the king was led to the general's quarters.

“That you would wish, O men of Athens, to recover that power which you formerly possessed, we all know; and by what means is it more likely that this object should be effected, than by succouring, of yourselves, those who are oppressed by the Lacedæmonians ? Be not afraid of them because they rule over many states, but rather be greatly encouraged, by that consideration, to resist them; reflecting that you yourselves, when you had the greatest number of subjects, had also the greatest number of enemies. As long, indeed, as they had nobody to whom they could revolt, they concealed their enmity against you; but when the Lacedæmonians stood forward as leaders, they at once showed what their feel. ings towards you were; and be assured that if you and we, on the present occasion, appear openly uniting our strength against the Lacedæmonians, many who cherish hatred to them will openly declare it.

Translate into Latin Verse :

Thus pray'd Tydides, and Minerva heard,
His nerves confirm’d, his languid spirits chear'd;
He feels each limb with wonted vigour light;
His beating bosom claims the promis'd fight.

Be bold (she cry'd) in ev'ry combat shine,
War be thy province, thy protection mine ;
Rush to the fight, and ev'ry foe controul ;
Wake each paternal virtue in thy soul :
Strength swells thy boiling breast, infus'd by me,
And all thy god-like father breathes in thee!
Yet more, from mortal mists I purge thy Eyes,
And set to view the warring Deities.
These see thou shun, thro' all th' embattled plain,
Nor rashly strive where human force is vain.
If Venus mingle in the martial band,
Her shalt thou wound : So Pallas gives command.

Translate into Greek Iambics :

He sought alone the good of those for whom
He was intrusted with the sovereign power ;
Well knowing that a people, in their rights
And industry protected, living safe
Beneath the sacred shelter of the laws;
Encouraged in their genius, arts and labours ;
And happy each as he himself deserves,
Are ne'er ungrateful. With unsparing hand
They will for him provide: their filial love
And confidence are his unfailing treasure ;
And every honest man his faithful guard.
