eon i if Masinissa, at whose death, in 148 B.C., the king-

Mickiewicz, mlts-ke-a'vitch, (ADAM,) a celebratec
Polish poet, born in Lithuania in 1798. He studied at
the University of Wilna, where he became intimate with
several distinguished patriots and joined the secret
societies opposed to the Russian government. He pub-
lished in 1822 a collection of poems, which at once es-
tablished his reputation as the greatest poet his country
had produced. He was banished in 1824 to the interior
of Russia, on a charge of conspiring against the govern-
ment, and while residing at Odessa wrote his " Crimean
Sonnets." Having been permitted to leave Russia, in
1828 he visited Germany and Rome, and in 1834 took
up his residence in Paris. He was appointed in 1840
professor of the Slavonic language and literature in
the College of France, where he lectured for a time
with great success. His subsequent connection with the
Polish fanatic Towianski, who inculcated the worship of
Napoleon Bonaparte, deprived him of his popularity
and he was ordered to quit Paris by the government.
He was sent by Louis Napoleon on a mission to
Constantinople in 1855, and died soon after his arrival.
His principal works are his " Grajina," a historic pic-
ture of Lithuania in early times, " Konrad Wallenrod,"
(1830,) the "Ancestors," ("Dziady," 1832,) in the first
part of which he gives the story of his unfortunate at-
tachment to the sister of a fellow-student, and in the
latter describes his imprisonment at Wilna, and " Pan
Tadeusz," (1833.)

Mickle or Meikle, mlk'el, (WILLIAM JULIUS,) a
Scottish poet and translator, born in Dumfriess-shire in
1734. Having visited London in 1763, he published
several poems, which obtained for him the patronage of
Lord Lyttleton, and in 1775 brought out his translation
of the " Lusiad" of Camoens. It had great popularity
in England, and procured for him the honour of ad-
mission to the Royal Academy of Lisbon. This work,
however, is far from being a faithful version of the origi-
nal ; and Hallam observes that Mickle's " infidelities lu
translation exceed all liberties ever taken in this way.'
He also published several popular ballads, one of which,
entitled " Cumnor Hall," suggested to Sir Walter Scott
his romance of 1'Kenilworth." Died in 1788.

burg. In 1866 he went with Haeckel to Madeira, in 1867
to the Canaries, and in 1869 to Morocco. After visiting
South America, Tahiti, and Samoa, he in 1871-72 made
the first of his celebrated journeys in Papua. He also
travelled in Indo-China and in other little-known regions,
making important geographical discoveries. Died 1888.

Mi'cou, [Gr. M/KUV,] an eminent Athenian painter
and sculptor, flourished about the middle of the fifth
century B.C. He was chosen by his countrymen to paint
the walls of the temple of Theseus at Athens. His
pictures representing the battles of the Amazons and
Centaurs were especially admired for the skill displayed
in the delineation of the horses. There were several
other Greek artists named Micon.

Mi'das, [Gr.



a Phrygian king, who, according



to tradition, requested of Bacchus that all he touched
might turn to gold, and was gratified by the grant of that
wish. Being thus in danger of starvation, he could
only escape the curse he had brought upon himself by
bathing in the Pactolus, which ever after flowed with
sands of gold. It is also related of him that, having
decided in favour of Pan in his musical contest with
Apollo, Midas's ears were changed to those of an ass,
which he endeavoured to conceal. They were at length
discovered by a servant, who, unable to retain the secret,
whispered it in a pit in the ground, and the reeds which
grew around the spot revealed his disgrace, murmuring
in the winds the words, " King Midas has asses' ears."
This fable was a favourite theme with the Athenian
dramatists.

born about 1565, is chiefly known from the important

Middleton, (THOMAS,) an English dramatist, flou-
rished during the reigns of Elizabeth, James I., and
Charles I. Nothing is known of his life, except that he
was chronologer to the city of London in 1620. Two
of his principal plays are entitled "A Mad World, my
Masters," and " The Roaring Girl." The latter is said
to be a true picture of London life at that time. Mid-
dleton also assisted Rowley, Fletcher, and Jonson in
the composition of several of their plays. One of his
dramas, entitled " The Witch," is supposed to have fur-
nished Shakspeare with the witch-scenes in " Macbeth."

on which occasion he opposed the claims of Bentley (then
regius professor of divinity) to an exorbitant fee. A law-
euit followed, in which Bentley was defeated. Middleton

his return, his "Letter from Rome," (1729,) in which he
maintains that " the religion of the present Romans is
derived from their heathen ancestors." Having brought
upon himself the charge of infidelity by this work and
succeeding publications, he wrote a pamphlet in defence
of his orthodoxy, which, however, failed to remove the
unfavourable impression he had made. He brought
out in 1741 his " History of the Life of M. T. Cicero,"
which, though marred with some grave defects, was
received with extraordinary favour. In 1 749 he pub-
lished " A Free Inquiry into the Miraculous Powers
of the Christian Church," in which he insists that the
Protestant clergy should deny the authority of the
Fathers entirely, or admit the truth of the leading
Catholic doctrines. Died in 1750.

previously been made a Fellow of the Royal Society, he
set sail for India. He laid the foundation of the Bishops'
College at Calcutta, in 1820, and established a consistory

His principal work is entitled "The Doctrine of the

Mid'gard's* Serpent, (or MiSgarSsormr, mith'-
garthz-oRtnr',) called also the World-Serpent, and
Jbrmungand, in the Norse mythology, the great serpent
which surrounds the world, the offspring of Loki and
the female Jotun Angurboda, (AngrboCa.) The gods,
having learned that the children of Loki and An
gurboda were destined at some future day to be fatal to
them, determined to get possession of those children
while they were still young. They were accordingly
brought, and Midgard's Serpent was cast into the
ocean, where it grew till it encircled the world, biting
its own tail. At the end of the world (Ragnarock) the
world-serpent will fight among the enemies of the gods
and be slain by Thor, who, however, will die in mediately
afterwards from the effect of its venom. The myth of
the world-serpent is supposed to signify the deep or main
ocean, which, excited by Loki, (subterranean fire or earth-
