It gives no encouragement to the idolatry of genius, and glorifies God alone. Hence an irreligious or immoral man is apt to be repelled by the Bible ; he feels himself in an uncongenial atmosphere, and is made uneasy and uncomfortable by the rebukes of sin and the praise of a holy God.
He will not have this book rule over him or disturb him in his worldly modes of thought and habits of life. Others are unable to divest themselves of early prejudices for classical models ; they esteem external polish more highly than ideas, and can enjoy no poetry which is not cast in the ancient Greek or modern mould, and moves on in the regular flow of uniform metre, stanza, and rhyme.
And yet these are not essen- tial to true poetry. The rhyme was unknown to Homer, Pindar, Sophocles, Virgil and Horace ; it was even despised by Milton as " the invention of a barbarous age to set off wretched matter and lame metre, as the jingling sound of like endings trivial to all judicious ears and of no true musical delight.
If we study the Bible poetry on its own ground, and with unclouded eyes, we may find in it forms of beauty as high and enduring as in that of any nation ancient or modern.
Even its artless simplicity and naturalness are the highest triumph of art. Simplicity always enters into good taste. Those poems and songs which are the outgushings of the heart, without any show of artificial labor, are the most popular, and never lose their hold on the heart. AVe feel that we could make them ourselves, and yet only a high order of genius could produce them.
Where a grander panorama of creation than in the one hundred and fourth Psalm? Where a more charming and loving pastoral than the twenty-third Psalm? Where such a high view of the dignity and destiny of man as in the eighth Psalm? Where a profounder sense of sin and Divine forgiveness than in the thirty-second and fifty-first Psalms? Where such a truthful and overpowering description of the vanity of human life and the never-changing character of the holy and just, yet merciful God, as in the ninetieth Psalm?
Where have the infinite greatness and goodness of God, his holi- ness, righteousness, long-suffering and mercy, the wonders of His government, and the feeling of dependence on Him, of joy and peace in Him, of gratitude for His blessings, of praise of His glory, found truer and fitter embodiment than in the Psalter and the Prophets?
Where will you find more sweet, tender, and deli- cate expression of innocent love than in the Song of Songs, which sounds like the singing of birds in sunny May from the flowery fields and the tree of life in Paradise? The Prayer of Moses Psalm xc. No human genius ever soared so high as this evangelist of the old dispensation.
Jeremiah, the prophet of sorrow and affliction, has furnished the richest supply of the language of holy grief in seasons of public calamity and distress, from the destruction of Jerusalem down to the latest siege of Paris; and few works have done this work more effectively than his Lamentations. And what shall we say of the Book of Job, the Shakespeare in the Bible?
Where are such bold and vivid descriptions of the wonders of nature, of the behemoth, the levi- athan, and of the war-horse? What can be finer than Job's picture of wisdom, whose price is far above rubies? The times for the depreciation of Bible poetry have passed.
Many of the greatest scholars and poets, some of whom by no means in sympathy with its religious ideas, have done it full justice. I quote a few of them who represent different stand- points and nationalities. John Milton, notwithstanding his severe classic taste, judges : " There are no songs comparable to the songs of Zion, no orations equal to those of the Prophets, and no politics like those which the Scriptures teach. Sand ford : "In lyric flow and fire, in crushing force and majesty, the poetry of the ancient Scriptures is the most superb that ever burnt within the breast of man.
He regards it as " the oldest, simplest, subliruest " of all poetry, and in the form of a dialogue between Alciphron and Eutyphron, after the Platonic fashion, he triumphantly vindicates its merits against all objections, and illustrates it with admirable translations of choice passages. Goethe pronounced the book of Ruth " the loveliest thing in the shape of an epic or idyl which has come down to us.
A noble book! All men's book! Such living likenesses were never since drawn. Sublime sorrow, sublime reconcilia- tion ; oldest choral melody, as of the heart of manhood ; so soft and great as the summer midnight; as the world with its seas and stars. There is nothing written, I think, of equal literary merit," Isaac Taylor : " The Hebrew writers as poets were masters of all the means and the resources, the powers and the stores, of the loftiest poetry, but subservient to a far loftier purpose than that which ever animates human genius.
The Prophet, in order to take root in the common life of the people, must become a Psalmist. Stewart Perowne : " The very excellence of the Psalms is their universality.
Hence they express the sorrows, the joys, the aspirations, the struggles, the victories, not of one man. And if we ask, How comes this to pass? One object is ever before the eyes and the heart of the Psalmist. All enemies, all distresses, all persecutions, all s - are seen in the light of God.
It is to Him that the cry goes up ; it is to Him that the heart is laid bare; it is to Him that the thanksgiving is uttered. This it is which makes them so true, so precious, so universal. Strictly speaking, there are only three classes or" pure poetry in which imagination and feeling are controlling factors.
These are lyric, epic, and dramatic. Lyric poetry is the poetry of subjective emotions ; epic poetry, the poetry of objective narration ; dramatic poetry, the poetry of living action. It is the product : reflection as well as of imagination. It runs ' philosophy and ethics. The first three kinds have their aim in themselves. Didactic poetry has its aim beyond itself, in instruction or improvement, and uses the poetic torm as a m.
Bible poetry is chiefly lyric and didactic. Prophetic poetry may be regarded as a branch of didactic, or, perhaps better, as a substitute for epic poetry. The revealed religion excludes mythology and hero-worship, which control the epic poetry of the heathen.
It substitutes for them mono- theism, which is inconsistent with any kind of idolatry. The real hero, so to speak, of the history of revelation is Jehovah Himself, the only true and living God, to whom all glory is due. And so He appears in the prophetic writings. He is the one object of worship, praise and thanksgiving, but not the object of a narrative poem. He is the one sovereign actor, who in heaven originates and controls all events on earth, but not one among other actors, cooperating or conflicting with finite beings.
There are epic elements in several lyric poems which cele- brate certain great events in Jewish history, as the Song of Moses, Exod. The Book of Ruth has been called an epos. The Prologue and Epi- logue of Job are epic, and have a truly narrative and objective character; but they are only the framework of the poem itself, which is essentially didactic in dramatic form.
In the apocry- phal books the epic element appears in the book of Tobit and the book of Judith, which stand between narrative and fiction, and correspond to what we call romance or novel. They have no epic and no drama. Dramatic elements are to be found in many of their odes, and the Book of Job and the Kong of Songs have sometimes been called Divine dramas : but dramatic poetry, in the proper sense of that term, was altogether unknown to the Israelites.

In like manner 1 Ewald. The oldest known specimen of lyric poetry and of all poetry excepting the Divine poem of creation is the song of Lamech to his two wives Gen.
It has already the measured arrangement, alliteration and musical correspondence of Hebrew parallelism. Cain shall be avenged seven-fold, But Lamech seventy and seven-fold.

Chrysostoin, Theodoret, Jerome, Jarchi and others set Lamech down as a murderer of Cain , who here confesses his deed to ease his conscience ; but Aben-Ezra, Calvin, Herder, Kwald, Delitzsch, take the veil as a threat : "1 will slay any man who wounds me.

Jehovah is a man of war ; Jehovah is His name. The depths cover them ; They went down to the bottom like a stone. Thy right hand, O Jehovah, is glorious in power, Thy right hand, Jehovah, dasheth in pieces the enemy. And in the greatness of Thy majesty Thou overturnest them that rise up against Thee.
Thou sendest forth Thy wrath, It consumeth them like stubble. And with the blast of Thy nostrils the waters were piled up. The floods stood upright as an heap. The depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.

Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever Thou hadst formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting Thou art God. Thou turnest man to destruction ; And sayest, Return, ye children of men. For a thousand years in Thy sight Are but as yesterday when it is past, And as a watch in the night. The days of our years are threescore years and ten, Or even by reason of strength fourscore years ; Yet is their pride but labor and sorrow ; For it is soon gone, and we fly away.
So teach us to number our days, That we may turn our hearts unto wisdom. The Book of Joshua x. The Song of Be ot jes v. The Light was rig - -. The earth tremble. Another but very different specimen of female poetry is Han- nah's hymn of joy and gratitude when she dedicated her son Samuel, the last of the Judges, to the service of Jehovah 1 Sam. It furnished the key-note to the 3Iagnificat of the Virgin Mary after the miraculous conception. The Book of Ruth is an idyllic poem in prose, and exhibits in contrast to the wild commotion of the period of the Judges, a picture of domestic peace and happiness and the beauty of filial devotion.
The reign of David was the golden age of lyric poetry. He was himself the prince of singers in Israel. The beautiful 18th Psalm is also incorporated in 2 Sam.
Of his secular poetry the author of the Books of Samuel has preserved us two specimens, a brief stanza on the death of Abner, and his lament for the death of Saul and Jonathan 2 Sam. The latter is a pathetic and touching elegy full of the strength and tenderness of the love of friendship. His gener- osity in lamenting the death of his persecutor who stood in his way to the throne, enhances the beauty and effect of the elegy.

Ewald conjectures that Jonathan was familiarly known among the soldiers of Israel as the. Gazelle on account of his beauty and swiftness. Jonathan was, of course, much nearer to the heart of the poet, but in this national song David had to identify him with Saul, so that both arc included in the Glory of Israel.

Chorus How are the heroes fallen in the midst of the battle I Jonathan, slain upon thy heights! I am distressed fur thee, my brother Jonathan, Very pleasant hast thou been unto me : Thy love to me was wonderful, Passing the love of women.
It is a matter of dispute among commentators whether the Psalter contains hymns of the Maccabsean age. A picture of the ideal of friendship sanctified by the consecration of their hearts to Jehovah. The Vulgate inserts here the clause : Sicut mater unicum canal filium 8uum, ita ego te amabam, which has no foundation either in the Hebrew or the Septuagint. It is less lively and poetic to understand it literally of the material of war, as the Vulgate does anna bellica , and Herder who renders : — "Ach wieficlen die Ilcldcn, und Hire Waffcn den Kricges Liegcn zerschlagcn wither.
But Hengstenberg, Havernick, Keil, among the orthodox divines, iesenins, Kwald, Thenius, Dilhnann, among the liberal critics, deny the possibility of Maccabsean Psalms. Ewald says Preface to third ed. U , admits the possibility, but denies the existence of such late Psalms. The Psalter is the great depository- of the lyric poetry of the Jewish church and the inexhaustible fountain of devotion for all ages.

Before, however, she would do this, she made a treaty with him, which would strongly prove, if anything were still wanting, the vice and meanness of the Egyptian court. It was, that, although married to his sister Cleopatra, of whom he was very fond, he should put her away, and marry his younger sister Selene ; because the mother hoped that Selene would be false to her husband's cause, and weaken his party in the state by her treachery : she planned the unhappiness of two children and the guilt of a third.
Perhaps history can hardly show another marriage so wicked and unnatural, or a reign so little likely to end without a civil war.
She made a treaty of marriage witli Antiochns Cyzicenns, the Mend of her late hosband, who was struggling in unnatural warfare for the throne of Syria with his Wother Antiochus Orypus, the husband of her sister Tryphiena ; and in her way to Syria she stopped at Cyprus, where she raised a large army and took it with her as her dower, to help her new husband against his brother and ber 4 With this addition to his army Cyzicenns thought his forces equal to those of his brother ; he marched against him and gave him battle.
But he was beaten, and he fled with his wife Cleopatra ; and they shut themselves np is the city of Antioch. Qrypus and Tryphiena then laid siege to the city, and Tryphiena soon took her revenge on her edster for coming into Syria to marry the brother and rival of her husband. In vain Grypns urged that he did not wish his victory to be stained by the death of a sister ; that Cleopatra was by marriage his sister as well as hers ; that she was the aunt of their children ; and that the gods would punish them if they dragged her from the altar.
How far he went may be doubted, but he brought back with him from the coast of Africa the prow of a ship ornamented with a horse's head, the usual figure-head of the Carthaginian ships. This he showed to the Alexandrian pilots, who knew it as belonging to one of the Phenician ships of Cadiz or Gib- raltar. Eudoxus justly argued that this prow proved that it was possible to sail round Africa, and to reach India by sea from Alexandria.
The government, however, would not fit him out for a third voyage; but his reasons were strong enough to lead many to join him, and others to help him with money, and he thereby fitted out three vessels on this attempt to sail round Africa by the westward voyage.
He passed the Pillars of Hercules, or Straits of Gibraltar, and then turned southward. He even reached that part of Africa where the coast turns eastward. Here he was stopped by bis ships wanting repair. He thence returned home, where he met with the fate not unusual to early travellers.
His whole story was doubted; and the geographers at home did not believe that he had ever visited the countries that he attempted to describe. Before the fall of Thebes the Copts ruled in the Delta ; when the free states of Greece held the first rank in the world, even before the time of Alexander's con- quests, the Greeks of Lower Egypt were masters of their fellow-countrymen ; and now that JudsBa, under the bravery of the Maccabees, had gained among nations a rank far higher than what its size entitled it to, the Egyptian Jews found that they had in the same way gained weight in joee bus Alexandria.
Cleopatra had given the command of Antiq. He sent six thou- sand men to his friend Antiochus Cyzicenus to be led against the Jews, but this force was beaten by the two sons of Hyr- canus the high priest.
The earliest names found among the hieroglyphics with which its walls are covered are those of Oleopatra Gocce, and her son Ptolemy Soter, while the latest name is tig. Even imder Cleopatra Oocce, who was nearly the worst of the fftmily, the bnilding of these great temples did not cease. But Gkiza, Ptolemais, and some other cities, bravely refused to part with their liberty, and sent to Lathyrus, then king of Cyprus, for help.
This was not, however, done without many misgiy- ings ; for some were wise enough to see that, if Lathyms helped them, Cleopatra would, on the other hand, help dieir king JannsBUs; and when Lathyrus landed at SicaminoB with thirty thousand men, the citizens of Ptolemais refused even to listen to a message from him. Lathyrus drove back JannsBUS, and marched upon Asochis, a city of Galilee, where he scaled the walls on the sabbath-day, and took ten thou- josephus.
He then sat Antiq. He crossed the river in face of the Jewish army, and routed it with great slaughter. The Jewish his- torian adds, that between thirty and fifty thousand men were slain upon the field of battle, and that the women and children of the neighbouring villages were cruelly put to death. She therefore mustered her forces, and put them under the command of Chelcias and Ananias, her Jewish generals. She sent her treasure, her will, and the children of Alexander, to the island of Cos, as a place of safety, and then marched with the army into Palestine, having sent forward her son Alexander with the fleet.
By this movement Lathyrus was imable to keep his ground in Coele-Syria, and he took the bold step of marching towards Egypt. Cleopatra, after taking Ptolemais, sent part of her army to help that which had been led by Chelcias ; and Lathyrus was forced to shut himself up in Gaza. Soon after this the campaign ended, by Lathyms returning to his own kingdom of Cyprus, and Cleopatra to Egypt. We may be quite sure that this cruel overbearing woman, who had never yet been guided by any feeling of right or dislike for war, did not yield to the reasons of her general Ananias through any kind feeling towards his countrymen ; but the Jews of Lower Egypt were too strong to be treated with slight ; it was by the help of the Jews that Cleopatra had dnven her son Lathyrus out of Egypt ; they formed a large part of the Egyptian armies, which were no longer even commanded by Greeks ; and it must have been by these clear and unanswer- able reasons that Ananias was able to turn the queen from the thoughts of this conquest, and to renew the league between Egypt and Judaea.
Cleopatra then put to death the general because he had allowed her son to escape alive. Cyrene had been part of Egypt for above two hundred years, and was usually governed by a younger son or brother of the king. But on the death of Ptolemy Apion, the Boman senate, who had latterly been grasping at everything within their reach, claimed his kingdom as their inheritance, and in the flattering language of their decree by which the country was enslaved, they declared Cyrene free ; and from that time forward it was little better than a province of Bome.
The army was in favour of his mother, and an unsuccessful effort would certainly have been punished with death ; so he took perhaps the only path open to him, he left Egypt by stealth, and chose rather to quit his throne and palace than to live surrounded by the creatures of his mother, and in daily fear for his life. But he knew his mother too well ever again to trust himself in her hands; and while she was taking steps to have him put to death on his return, he formed a plot against her life by letters.
In this double game Alexander had the advantage of his mother; her character was so well known that he needed not to be told of what was going on ; while she perhaps thought that the son, whom she had so long ruled as a child, would not dare to act as a man.
Thus died, by the orders of her favourite son, after a reign of twenty-eight years, this wicked woman, who had married the husband of her mother, who had made her daughters marry and leave their husbands at her pleasure, who had made war upon one son, and had plotted the death of the other.

He had before reigned ten ap. He had held his ground against the fleets and armies of his mother, but either through weak- ness or good feeling had never invaded Egypt. It had long been falling in trade and in wealth, and had lost its superiority in arms ; but its temples, like so many citadels, its obelisks, its colossal statues, and the tombs of its great kings, still remained, and with them the memory of its glory then gone by.
So small a measure of justice has usually been dealt out to a conquered people by their rulers, that their highest hopes have risen to nothing more than an escape from excess of tyranny.
If life, property, female honour, national and religious feelings have not been con- stantly and wantonly outraged, lesser evils have been patiently endured. Political servitude, heavy taxes, daily ill-treatment, and occasional cruelty, the Thebans had borne for two centuries and a half under their Greek masters, as no less the lot of humanity than poverty, disease, and death.

The traveller, whose means and leisure have allowed him to reach a spot which all of us would be delighted to visit, now counts the Arab villages which have been built within the city's bounds, and perhaps pitches his tent in the open space in the middle of them. But the ruined temples still stand to call forth his wonder.
They have seen the whole portion of time of which history keeps the reckoning roll before them ; they have seen kingdoms and nations rise and fall ; the Babylonians, the Jews, the Persians, the Greeks, and the Eomans. After this rebellion, Lathyrus reigned in quiet, and was even able to be of use to his Greek allies ; and the Athenians, in gratitude, set up statues of bronze to him and Berenice, his daughter. The Egyptian fleet moved out of harbour to meet him, a pomp which the kings of Egypt had before kept for themselves alone.
Lathyrus received him on shore with the gi'eatest respect, lodged him in the palace, and invited him to his own table, an honour which no foreigner had enjoyed since the kings of Egypt had thrown aside the plain manners of the first Ptolemies. Antiochus could not read them without showing his anger ; such opinions had never before been heard of in the Aca- demy ; but they knew the handwriting of Philo, they were certainly his. Selius and Tetrilius, who were there, had heard him teach the same opinions at Borne, whither he had SiLP.
The next day, the matter was again talked over with Lncullns, ifieraditus, Aristns of Athens, Ariston, and Dion; and it ended in Antiochns writing a book, which he named Sosns, against those new opinions of his old master, against the new Academy, and in behalf of the old Academy.
He therefore at once made up his mind not to grant the fleet which Lucullus had been sent to ask for. It had been usual for the kings of Egypt to pay the expenses of the Eoman ambassadors while liTing in Alexandria ; and Lathyrus offered four times the uBual allowance to Lucullus, beside eighty talents of silver.
Lucullus, however, would take nothing beyond his expenses, and returned the gifts which were meant as a civil refasal of the fleet ; and, having failed in his embassy, he sailed hastily for Cyprus, leaving the wonders of Egypt unvisited. Lathyrus sent a fleet of honour to accompany him on his voyage, and gave him his portrait cut in an emerald. This is cult!

As William Phillips consistently shows himself, in all that I have thus far encountered, to have been by nature, a man of peaceful reform, and negotiation [arbitration], it now comes clearly to me that he would in like manner have presented himself, upon his meeting with Garibaldi.
It is thus little wonder that he was not accepted into this group of trained fighting men, but rather, with great charm, urged to help in alternative ways, via adroit application of his keen mind, and skilled pen, as Civil Agent.

The final personal break was caused by the unlucky experience of the Mentana expedition , when Garibaldi failed to free Rome. Fundamental ideas as democracy, republic, social justice, humanity and universal brotherhood have been however always common to them. Gladstone sent letters in search of urgent action on the prisoner's behalf which were extremely effective.
Thus we hope to learn the precise nature and date of William's visit, and to discover if WP had already become active behind-the-scenes in Britain, prior to his Italian actions, in his unfolding role in social reform.

Hauser" -- by melcir. The reason is that the world lacks a nation which possesses true leadership. Such leadership, of course, is required not to dominate other peoples, but to lead them along the path of duty, to lead them toward the brotherhood of nations where all the barriers erected by egoism will be destroyed.
We need the kind of leadership which, in the true tradition of medieval chivalry, would devote itself to redressing wrongs, supporting the weak, sacrificing momentary gains and material advantage for the much finer and more satisfying achievement of relieving the suffering of our fellow men. We need a nation courageous enough to give us a lead in this direction. It would rally to its cause all those who are suffering wrong or who aspire to a better life, and all those who are now enduring foreign oppression.

George Whitney Martin, pages Garibaldi at Genoa. Mazzini in London, took no part in the February revolutions at Parma, Modena and the Papal States , although Carbonari from all over Italy and even a number of foreigners hurried to fight the Austrians Perhaps Garibaldi was briefly at Caprera early in , before his sojourn in Africa, and prior to sailing for New York, where he arrived on 30th July He then spent some time on Staten Island, before finally returning to his former life as sea captain, undertaking a two-year voyage in the Pacific, from April , with visits to the Andes mountains on the west coast of South America, and to Three Hummock Island, in Bass Strait, near Tasmania, Australia, in , with the trading vessel "Carmen".
During his seven months in Tangiers, he write a draft of his memoirs. As Garibaldi had likely retired from Italy to Africa by April , it is likely prior to that time when William may have met him. His friends in Genoa are occupied in getting up a subscription wherewith to purchase a merchant vessel and pressent to him, so that he may return to his early mode of life. The general, who was accompanied by an aide-de-camp, looked exceedingly well in health, and appeared in excellent spirits.
Indeed, we are told that he was particularly cheerful and agreeable during the voyage. We believe the general will remain in Liverpool for a short time, and that he contemplated a visit to America. A Paris letter, written some few weeks ago, says "Garibaldi, the well-known leader of the republican system at Rome, is now residing at Tangiers, in Africa, and he is very busily engaged in writing memoirs upon the great events in which he took such a large part.
The manuscript has been sold to a bookseller, of Paris, who will publish it at the same time in the French and Italian languages. Would the publication of Garibaldi's memoirs in French and Italian be sufficient to turn the tide? If this Italy of the s were to avoid total anarchy and rebellion, social reform must come soon. Apparently offered a public parade in New York City, he refused the honor. Garibaldi stayed on Staten Island, New York, at the home of inventor Antonio Meucci who invented an early telephone which preceded the invention of Alexander Graham Bell.
Only the references to Eimer' life and its symbolism were entirely new. Some part of the Neapolitan territory will probably be the pont selected at first. It is calculated that in the first encounter any portion of the Neapolitan troops that may oppose the 'army of liberation' will be worsted; and that is to be considered as a signal for the simultaneous rising of the patriots of Italy.
On the other hand, Garibaldi is expected from New York with two vessels full of volunteers, most of whom have served in Mexico. He has given out that he is proceeding to London, but it is believed that his real destination for the present is Tangiers, and from that point, when the opportune moment arrives, he will try to effect a landing in Naples. Rives, 47 American Minister in Paris, the rumor that Garibaldi was raising He was refused asylum by the King of Sardinia and went to the United States.

Neufeld, pages Already by , when Garibaldi returned to Italy, Mazzini wished to declare Southern Italy a republic, but Garibaldi It is more likely, however, that Palizzi conceived the idea for the picture during the wave of enthusiasm in Italy for Garibaldi's exploits of Sadly, it was not until some years later that Garibaldi's memoirs finally came into print.
For unknown reasons, it would be some years before his work was translated and published in the United States. A great many of his former companions, who dispersed after the taking of Rome by the French, are, it is said, only waiting the signal to range themselves under the banner of this adventurer, who has brought over ample store of arms, together with large subsidies, said to have been given him by a foreign power.
Moreover, Garibaldi is said to concert all his plans with Mazzini , who during the last few days was seen at Nyon, near Geneva, and who keeps up an active correspondence with all parts of the Peninsula. Thompson Cooper, pages She was first brought into contact with Garibaldi, Mazzini, Orsini, and other republican leaders during a tour in Italy in , and on her return to England edited Orsini's Memoirs and Adventures, lectured on Italy, wrote in the Daily The German Diet, in reply to Lord Palmerston, on the 17th of July, , stated that "no foreign interference should be allowed in The battle of the 1st of October proved the military skill of Garibaldi, The following contain useful additional information: Guerzoni, Garibaldi, vol.

The following news item seems to be one of those rare gems which hint at, if we dare believe it, "Divine intervention", and may seem so subtle that we cannot truly be sure what the precise message might be -- but present the certainty that we should note the soul-rousing associative positioning of allegiances and events, as expressions of significance whose focus may reside subtly beyond mere mortal ken.
The Governolo was going at the rate of eleven knots an hour; the leak spung was so serious that the pumps were barely sufficient ot keep it under. The King and royal family landed on the small island Caprera until the Tripoli could be had to take them on board. Caprera, of course, is the island beloved of Garibaldi, to which he would soon thereafter return, to purchase land for his farm. Fate had thus put the King ashore on this very island, as if symbolically, to draw attention to some necessary union in agreement of these two teams, and thus to enquire of Garibaldi: "Will you embrace this rule?
