Excerpt from Stories From the History of Italy, in a Connected Series, From the Invasion of Alaric to the Present Time

Yearly two consuls, who acted as their magistrates and generals. Under their republican government the Romans became the most warlike people on the earth: they not only conquered the whole of Italy, but great part of Europe, Asia, and Africa. At length, having made themselves sovereigns of the world, the death-blow to their liberty was given by Julius Caesar, who became actual monarch while he professed no aim but the support of the republic. Brutus, and a few bold friends of freedom, conspired to slay Caesar for the sake of ridding their country of an absolute master; but the Spirit of the Roman people had become too much debased to enable them to make a proper use of the advantages of liberty; and the death of Caesar only opened a way for a succession of emperors, equally absolute, and more tyrannical.
