For the Pott. In conformity with the declared wishes of Home of the students of Indiana College a literal translation of the 2�th Section of the it Book of Livy is Here Given. The subject is the combat Between the roman and Alban Brothers an interesting one to the More advanced classical scholar. The translation is from the modern edition of Livy by Pren Deville and the translator solicits enquiry As to the strictness fits conformity with the latin text. The league being struck the three Brothers on either Side As had in agreed on take their arms. When their friends exhorted them to recoil that their National gods Quot their country and their parents All their fellow citizens at Home and in the army were at that moment spectators of their arms a of their might of hand they Advance into the Centre of the two armies both fierce by Natur Aad animated by the shouts of their exhorting friends. The two armies on each Side had already sat Down before their Camps free rather from Imp mediate danger than anxiety since Dominion was at stake risked on the valour and Fortune of so few. So then wound up to excitement and in suspense they fix their souls on this spectacle which was far from pleasing. The signal is Given and the three combatants on either Side inspired with the courage of mighty armies Rush with deadly arms like marshalled legions to th3 Shock. Not their own danger but Public Dominion and slavery and such a future condition of their country As they should have gained for it Are present to the minds of the one Side and the other. The very moment their arms clashed in the first encounter and their glittering sabres washed big horror thrills through the spectators and As Hope leaned to neither Side every voice and breath was hushed. Then mingling hands in the thick of Battle when not Only the motions of their bodies and the rapid quivering of their weapons and arms but their wounds also and blood were the objects of anxious gaze the two romans sunk Down gasping one upon the other while the three Albans were wounded. On their All the Alban army raised a shout of Joy while All Hope though not anxiety As yet Haid kit the romans who were breathless with alarm at the situs Tiki a the a Ingle combatant whom the Curatti bad surrounded he was happily unhurt. As he was alone not at All a match for them collectively so be was boldly confident against them individually. In order therefore to separate his opponents he takes to flight supposing they would follow him according As his disabled body would suffer each of hem. Having now got a Little Way from the place of action he turns and sees the Curatti pursuing him at considerable distances from each other and one of them not far behind him. On him he returns with great fury and while the Ambau army cries out to the two Curatti to assist their brother horatius having slain his enemy was now rallying to a second encounter. Then the romans with a shout of acclamation such As raised by men expressing unexpected Joy cheer on their Champion and he hastens to get rid of this combat. So before the other who was not far off could overtake him he dispatches the other Curtius too. The Chance of War thus rendered equal there now remained two single com Batons but not matched in Hope and strength. A body unhurt by a weapon and a double Victory sent one with bold Confidence to a third encounter the other dragging along a body enfeebled by wounds enfeebled by running is exposed Toa victorious foe. Neither was there a combat. The roman then cried out with an air of Triumph Quot i have offered two to the Manes of my Brothers the third 1 will now sacrifice to the Honor of my country in order that the roman army May Rule the Alban. White his. Adversary could Acar oely support his arms he plunges his sword in his bosom and As he Lay prostrate defiled him of his arms. The romans receive horatius with Triumph and congratulations with the greater Joy in proportion As the event followed so closely after fear. Then both parties apply themselves to the burying of their dead with very different a nations since one was exalted by the acquisition of Dominion and the other was brought under foreign subjection. Their tombs Are still extant in the place where each of them fell those of the two romans Al nest in one place nearer Alba those of the three Albans towards Rome but in separate places and according As they fought.
