death. So Cleopatra, while she is applying the venomous reptile to her 

bosom, (as represented in the Frontispiece,) is supposed to use language 

like the following,-- 

 

"Dost thou not see my baby at my breast, 

That sucks the nurse asleep?" 

 

Thus, after having chained in her embrace the two greatest generals that 

the Roman empire had produced, Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, at the 

periods when they were respectively arbiters of the world's fate, 

perished Cleopatra by her own hand. 

 

Cleopatra was a voluptuous and extravagant woman, and in one of the 

feasts she gave to Antony at Alexandria, she melted pearls into her 

drink to render the entertainment more sumptuous and expensive. She was 

fond of appearing dressed as a goddess; and she advised Antony to make 

war against the richest nations, to support her debaucheries. Her beauty 

has been greatly commended, and her mental perfections so highly 

celebrated, that she has been described as capable of giving audience to 

the ambassadors of seven different nations, and of speaking their 

various languages as fluently as her own. 

 

How vain are the possessions of beauty, power, personal and mental 

accomplishments, if to these are not united virtuous principles. All 

history, as well as all experience, is full of examples calculated to 

impress the great lesson that 

 

"VIRTUE alone is HAPPINESS below."
