The Roman woman, as well as the Gre- ' cian, were under perpetual guardianship; and were not at any age, nor in any condi- tion, ever trusted \with the management of their own fortunes.

Romulus even permitted husbands to kill their wives, if they found them drinking artoe. And ii' we may be- lieve Valerius Maxnnus, Egnathu Metelhu, baring detected bis wife drinking out of a ca«k, actually made use of this petUUflStoo, and was acquitted by Romulus. Fahius Pictor relate?, that the parents of a Reatan lady, having detected her picking the loeii ol a chest which contained some wine, shut her an anil starved her to death. W omen were liable to be divorced by their husbands almost at pleasure, provided the portion was returned which they had brought along with them. They were also liable tobe divorced for ill temper, winch. a* it could be construed into a fault, was at feast the fault of nature, and might some- times be that o'f the husband. A few sumptuary laws, a subordination to the men, and a total want of authority, do not so much affect the sc\. as to be coldly and indelicately treated by their husbands. S icb a treatment is touching them in the teiiJcrcst part. Such, however, wo have i (ason to believe, they often meet with from the Romans, who had not yet learned, as in modern limes, to blend the rigidity of the patriot, and roughness of the warrior, with flat soft and indulging behaviour, so con- picueus in our modern patriots and heroes. Husbands among the Romans not onlj themselves behaved roughly to their wives, aul even sometimes permitted their servants and slaves to do the same. The principal eunuch of Justinian the Second, threatened to chastise th<' Empress, bis master's wife, in IIK- manner that children are chastised at school, if she did noi obc Ids orders. With regard to the private diversions of the Roman Ladies, history is silent. Their pnblick ones were such as were, common to both sexes; as bathing, theatrical represen- tations, horse races, shows of wd.t b.'ast<-, which fought against one another, and some- tit™ ? against men, whom the rmperoorf, in the plenutude of ttietr de'spotich power, or- dered to engage them. The Romans, of belli sexes, spent a great leal of time, at the baths ; which at first, per- haps, were interwoven with their religion, but at last were a lv considered as refine- ments in luxurv. They were r laces of pub- lick retort, where all the news of the times were to be heard, where people, met with their acquaintances and friend?, where pubiick libraries w. re ke. t for such as chose to read, and where pocU lecited their works to such as had patience Ui hear. union, mauiage, becomes despised by pubiick and icpeated violations of its most solemn obligations. The younger classes of the community, growing up with such improper matter constantly fcifore them, lose, or never acquire-, the respect and reverence in which tli\y should be taueht to view it.

From the Ari '. Runaway Wires. — It appears to have been reserved fbi tiie present gen- eraitoo, to exc' i in cruelty, the rtftned attempts ;it barbarity which mark the usages an i customs of the llomans.— Tnke up a newspaper from what quar- te. of the country you may, and you are clmost sure to find some heartless wretch exposing himself and his friends by advertising his wife as a runaway. Some of these notices are couched in the most unfeeling language; as if the advertiser were dead to all the nicer sen- sibilities of his nature, and rejoiced in holding up to the pubiick dirision, her j whom, in the presence of his Maker, he has aworn to love, to honour, and protect. Such is the apparent levity with which those records of a man's shame are written, that attempts are made to be smart and witty. Indeed a competition seems to exist among such who shall be most unfeeling and pro- fan: 1 . Exhibitions of this kind are too gen- erally looked upon as matters of amuse- ment, gotten for the entertainment of the rabble, instead of being viewed, as they ought to be, foul stains upon the | bright escutcheon of our national char- acter. Written in most cases, as their temper indicates, merely for the par- pose of creating a laugh at the expense of female belpiessMt, it is strange that they are so frequently admitted into re- spectable newspapes. Strange it is too that the pubiick does not recoil from the oflensive spectacle, and point the finger of shame and scorn at the exhibiter,r..til- er tnan by quietly looking on, become a silent approver of so wanton a viola- tion of the domestick attachment of the sex.

The following beautiful and descrip tive. extract, is taken from Sermons, published under tine title of the Scotch Treacher : u Twic'c had the sun gone, down up- on the earth, and ar. yet all was quiet at the sepulchre ; Death held his scep- tre over the Son of God ; still and si- lent the hours passed on : the guards stood by their post, the rays of the midnight moon gleamed upon their helmets, and on their spears ; the ene- mies of Christ exulted in their success: the hearts of his friends were sunk in despondence and in sorrow ; the spi- rits of glory waited in anxious sus- pense to behold the event, and wonder- ed at the. depth of the ways of God. At length the morning star, arising in the east, announced the approach of light : the third day began to dawn upon the world, ichen on a sudden the earth trembled lo its centre, and the. powers of heaven were shaken ; an an- gel of God descended, the guards shrunk back from the terrour of his presence and fell prostrate upon the ground ; jfcts countenance was like lightning, and his raiment wat as white as snow , he rolled aimy the stone from the door of the scpidchrc, and sat upon it. But who is this that cometh from the tomb, with dyed gar- ments from the bed of death ? He that is glorious in his appearance, walketh in the greatness of his slringth !
