The disease caused him to lose the bone out of his nose, and his jaw-bone, also. Says he belongs to Dr. Wm. Cheathum, living in Nashville, Tenn. The owner of said slave is requested to come forward, prove property, pay charges, and take him away, or he will be dealt with as the law directs.‘Margaret stopped the carriage, and we tried to catch the words which could reach us at the distance. They were, however, few; so we got out of the carriage, and without going near the crowd drew a little nearer and nearer to the place where the Brahmin was addressing his audience. We were still too far off to hear much, and there was too much of Hindi mixed with his Urdu to make his language clear; but we could see the man’s eloquent, animated gestures, and hear the rich tones of his voice.Such conduct as that described by this new Archilochus, even making every allowance for exaggeration, must have caused Themistokls to be both hated and feared among the insular allies, whose opinion was now of considerable importance to the Athenians. A similar sentiment grew up partially against him in Athens itself, and appears to have been connected with suspicions of treasonable inclinations towards the Persians. As the Persians could offer the highest bribes, a man open to corruption might naturally be suspected of inclinations towards their cause; and if Themistokls had rendered pre?minent service against them, so also had Pausanias, whose conduct had undergone so fatal a change for the worse. It was the treason of Pausanias, suspected and believed against him by the Athenians even when[p. 280] he was in command at Byzantium, though not proved against him at Sparta until long afterwards,which first seems to have raised the presumption of medism against Themistokls also, when combined with the corrupt proceedings which stained his public conduct: we must recollect, also, that Themistokls had given some color to these presumptions, even by the stratagems in reference to Xerxes, which wore a double-faced aspect, capable of being construed either in a Persian or in a Grecian sense. The Laced?monians, hostile to Themistokls since the time when he had outwitted them respecting the walls of Athens,and fearing him also as a supposed accomplice of the suspected Pausanias,procured the charge of medism to be preferred against him at Athens; by secret instigations, and, as it is said, by bribes, to his political opponents.[557] But no satisfactory proof could be furnished of the accusation, which Themistokls himself strenuously denied, not without emphatic appeals to his illustrious services. In spite of violent invectives against him from Alkm?on and Kimon, tempered, indeed, by a generous modera[p. 281]tion on the part of Aristeids,[558] his defence was successful. He carried the people with him and was acquitted of the charge. Nor was he merely acquitted, but, as might naturally be expected, a reaction took place in his favor: his splendid qualities and exploits were brought impressively before the public mind, and he seemed for the time to acquire greater ascendency than ever.[559]I kissed him back, and with an aching heart sprang to the saddle. In five more minutes the station was out of sight.school2 迅雷下载
