Translate into Latin HEXAMETERS and PENTAMETERS :
The isles of Greece, the isles of Greece !
Where burning Sappho loved and sung,
Where Delos rose, and Phæbus sprung!
And Marathon looks on the sea;
I dream'd that Greece might still be free;
Which looks o'er sea-born Salamis ;
And men in nations ;-all were his !
Into LATIN ALCAICS :
No war, or battle's sound
The idle spear and shield were high up hung,
The trumpet spake not to the armed throng,
His reign of peace upon the earth began :
Whisp’ring new joys to the mild ocean,

By Mr. KENNEDY. To be translated into ENGLISH PROSE:
Sed, quum est illud imperitissime dictum, de populis fundis, quod commune est liberorum populorum, non proprium fæderatorum: ex quo intelligi necesse est, aut neminem ex sociis civem fieri posse, aut etiam posse ex fæderatis : tum vero jus omne noster iste magister mutandæ civitatis ignorat; quod est, judices, non solum in legibus publicis positum, sed etiam in privatorum voluntate. Jure enim nostro neque mutare civitatem quisquam invitus potest, neque, si velit, mutare non potest, modo adsciscatur ab ea civitate, cujus esse se civitatis velit: ut, si Gaditani sciverint nominatim de aliquo cive Romano, ut sit is civis Gaditanus, magna potestas sit nostro civi mutandæ civitatis, nec fædere impediatur, quo minus ex cive Romano civis Gaditanus possit esse.
Duarum civitatum civis esse, nostro jure civili, nemo potest: non esse hujus civitatis civis, qui se alii civitati dicarit, potest. Neque solum dicatione, quod in calamitate clarissimis viris Q. Maximo, C. Lænati, Q. Philippo Nuceriæ, C. Catoni Tarracone, Q. Cæpioni, P. Rutilio Smyrnæ vidimus accidisse, ut earum civitatum fierent cives. Hanc ante amittere non potuissent, quam hujus solum civitatis mutatione vertissent. Sed etiam postliminio potest civitatis fieri mutatio. Neque enim sine caussa de Cn. Publicio Menandro, libertino homine, quem apud majores Legati nostri in Græciam proficiscentes interpretem secum habere voluerunt, ad populum latum, ut is Publicius, si domum revenisset, et inde
omam rediisset, ne minus civis esset. Multi etia superiore memoria cives Romani sua voluntate, indemnati et incolumes, his rebus relictis, alias se in civitates contulerunt.-CICERO PRO BALBO, 12. (27. 28.)
Give some account of Balbus' cause.
Explain the three modes in which this might be effected.
Me perlongo intervallo? prope memoriæ temporumque nostrorum primum hominem novum Consulem fecistis et eum locum, quem nobilitas præsidiis firmatum atque omni ratione obvallatum tenebat, me duce, rescidistis, virtutique in posterum patere voluistis. Neque me tantummodo Consulem, quod est ipsum per sese amplissimum, sed ita fecistis, quomodo pauci nobiles in hac civitate Consules facti sunt; novus ante me nemo. Nam profecto si recordari volueritis de novis hominibus, reperietis, eos, qui sine repulsa Consules facti sint, diuturno labore atque aliqua occasione esse factos, quum multis annis post petissent, quam Prætores fuissent, aliquanto serius, quam per ætatem ac per leges liceret: qui autem anno suo petierint, sine repulsa non esse factos : me esse unum ex omnibus novis hominibus, de quibus meminisse possimus, qui Consulatum petierim, quum primum licitum sit; Consul factus sim, quum primum petierim : ut vester honos ad mei temporis diem petitus, non ad alienæ petitionis occasionem interceptus, nec diuturnis precibus efflagitatus, sed dignitate impetratus esse videatur.—CICERO II. CONTRA RULLUM. I. 2. (3).
