She appeared upon the operatic stage in Hamburg at the age of 15, was engaged for the opera in Frankfort, and subsequently entered into an engagement for three years with the director of the imperial theatre at Vienna, during which she established her reputation as a representative of the greater roles of the lyric stage, such as those of Leonora in Fide-lio, Valentina in Les Huguenots, and Donna Anna in Don Giovanni. At the close of this engagement she transferred her services to Her Majesty's theatre, London, and since that time has lived mostly in England, taking part in the great musical festivals in that country, and being equally distinguished as an operatic and oratorio singer.

Titos Pomponins Atticis

Titos Pomponins Atticis, a Roman knight, born in 109 B. C, died in 32. During the civil wars between Sylla and Marius he removed to Athens, where he spent 20 years and rendered many services to the citizens, who raised statues in his honor. Recalled by Sulla in 65 B. C, he resided in Rome, and was celebrated for his hospitality, numbering among his friends Hortensius, Pompey, Caesar, Brutus, and above all Cicero. He had no ambition, made a generous use of his great wealth, and during the civil wars was able to be on friendly farms with men of all parties. He starved himself to death to avoid other physical sufferings. He possessed a very extensive library, and employed his slaves to copy MSS., selling the copies. His annals, a general history extending over 700 years, were highly prized by classical writers, but have not come down to us. His name has been preserved by the letters addressed to him by Cicero, and by a biography written by Cornelius Nepos.

Titus Calpurnius

Titus Calpurnius, a Latin pastoral poet, born in Sicily, lived near the end of the 3d century. Eleven eclogues bearing his name are extant. Little is known of his life, and his eclogues have been by critics variously divided and distributed between himself, his contemporaries, and his copyists. There is some resemblance in style between these eclogues and those of Virgil.
