Excerpt from The United Service Journal, and the Naval and Military Magazine, 1832, Vol. 2

The spirit of commercial enterprise, which Carthage inherited from her founder, soon raised her to eminence. The extensive trade which she carried on, not only with the interior of the continent on which she stood, but with every part of the coast, and all the considerable islands of the Mediterranean, was productive of the most valuable fruits wealth, naval power, the spread of her empire in Africa, and the ac quisition of foreign dominion. A treaty made with the Romans in the year of the expulsion of their kings, proves her to have been even then in possession of Sardinia and parts of Sicily; and twenty-eight years after we find her considered a power of such importance, as to induce the Persian monarch to court her alliance, and request the aid of her services towards the furtherance of the expedition against Greece. According to the agreement with Xerxes, Carthage was to attack the Greek settlements in.sicily and her very first expedition in pursuance of this object excites astonishment at the vast extent of her resources. Two thousand ships of war, with three thousand transports, are re corded to have sailed for this island, and landed troops, - an amount of force which would quite stagger belief, did we not recollect that the immense wealth of Carthage was devoted almost exclusively to the maintenance of her ¿eets and armies. Her operations in refer ence to Sicily at later periods, were conducted on a similar scale of magnitude, and continued with little intermission, till the star of Rome gained the ascendant, and in the end totally eclipsed the most illus trions of her rivals. From the period of her first introduction into Spain, when the Tyrians entreated her interference in favour of their colony at Cadiz, Carthage had kept up a commercial intercourse with the natives, and the produce of the Spanish mines was always one great source of her opulence; but the conquest of the country was scarcely attempted till the time of Hamilcar, and only completed by his son, Hannibal. No part of Carthaginian, we might perhaps say.
