Not many years ago we met a gang of galley-slaves near Leghorn, who

'Chain'd down at sea beneath the bitter thong,
To the hard bench and heavy oar so long,' Rogers.

were returning at night-fall from their labours. They were chained two and two, and as they passed slowly along the shore, they sang the Litany with sorrowful devotion, but in the verses in which Tasso has clothed the prayer of praises and supplication chaunted by the army of the Crusaders when proceeding to battle.

Ne s' udian trombe o suoni altri feroci;
Ma di pietate, e <T umilta sol voci:

E ne suonan le valli ime e profonde,
E gli alti colli, e le spelonche loro
E da ben mille parti Eco risponde;
Si chiaramente replicar s' udia •

Or di Cristo il gran nome, or di Maria.

Soinmessi accenti, e tacite parole,
Rotti singulti, eflebili sospiri
Delia gentc che in un s' allegra e duole
Fan che per 1' aria un mormorio s' aggiri.'
