The ancient world was only a little world.
Although warlike, it derives its chief glory
from the works of genius—from the wri
tings of the poets, historians and philoso
phers. Viewed through this glowing bet
exaggerated medium, that looks great and
magnificent, which in reality was stinted,
meagre and desolate. Alexander vainly
thought he had conquered the universe,
whe he only ravaged a district. Nations
were then only tribes. empires, cantons, and
their half savage rulers hardly more potent
than Emirs of Lebanon, or Khans of Tarta
ry. Most of what now constitutes the
earth, and fills it was unknown; the great
seas and continents were hid below the hor
izon of the ancients; even. the swell of as
ocean tide had scarcely been felt by them;
and all their conquests, battles and beetle
—the sites of the cities and kingdoms, u
well as of their histories and epic poems—
never ranged far from the tranquil shores
and isles of the Mediteranean lake. The
number of people corresponded to their
narrow geographical limits. How, indeed,
could mankind be numerous without the
means of sustenance, when there was little
commerce and no manufactures; when they
were strangers to the useful arts, by which
a dense population can alone be fed, clothed
and lodged? All, therefore, which has been
transmitted as to the extreme populousness
of the ancient world, may be considered al•
most deceptious as its oracles. Carthage,
according to Strabo, contained seven bun
Aired thousand inhabitants; Athens, exelu
eive of slaves, about half a million: Rome,
four millions. It is not improbable that in
these representation s there is a wrong kg..
ure or a redundant one. Statements or
numbers are very liable lo errors, and the
errors to he copied, or multiplied, as the
grammatical construction does not detect
them, Besides, it must be remembered
that Athens and Rome, though teemed
were properly districts or provinces, walled
in. The present remains ofthe Reman walls
show that they were of vast extent; but they
encompassed large tracts of country were
truly rus in urbe, included in their circuit
woods and water, and corn fields, as well
as mansions and spacious gardens. And
Rome, as is well known ; comprised the
chief of Italy. Genoa, Milan, Florecos,
Leghorn. and other noble cities, are of re
cent foundation, and pertain entirety to
Italy, even in the Augustan age, must
have been thioly peopled, and doubtless
afforded a free passage enough for those
vast herds of swine (one thousand in num..
ber) of which Polybius writes, and which
were guided in their pastoral migrations by
the blowing of horns. The severity of the
climate in the most busy regions of the old
world attests the scantiness of population.
In Ovid's times, the Black Sea was often
frozen, which would be quite a phenomenon
at present. That Italy is warmer now than
formerly,we have many testimonies. From
various passage's of Horace, we may sup
pose that the streets of Rowe were full of
snow; and Juvenal refers to a woman
breaking the ice of the Tiber to perform her
ablution. I never met with a tourist who
had seen snow in Rcme ; and the Tiber is
hardly more liable to freeze than the Nile
or Ganges. The increase of temperature
is satisfactory proof of as increase of for:
