Էջ 518 - These scenes, their story not unknown, Arise, and make again your own ; Snatch from the ashes of your sires The embers of their former fires; And he who in the strife expires Will add to theirs a name of fear That tyranny shall quake to hear, And leave his sons a hope, a fame, They too will rather die than shame: For freedom's battle once begun, Bequeath'd by bleeding sire to son, Though baffled oft is ever won.
Էջ 228 - An Act for continuing in the East India Company for a further term the possession of the British Territories in India, together with certain exclusive privileges ; for establishing further regulations for the government of the said territories, and the better administration of justice within the same ; and for regulating the trade to and from the places within the limits of the said Company's Charter...

Էջ 18 - An Act for the further Limitation of the Crown, and better securing the Rights and Liberties of the Subject...
Էջ 518 - Attest it many a deathless age ! While kings, in dusty darkness hid, Have left a nameless pyramid, Thy heroes, though the general doom Hath swept the column from their tomb, A mightier monument command, The mountains of their native land ! There points thy Muse to stranger's eye The graves of those that cannot die ! 'Twere long to tell, and sad to trace, Each step from splendour to disgrace ; Enough — no foreign foe could quell Thy soul, till from itself it fell; Yes, self-abasement paved the way...
Էջ 507 - O thou that art situate at the entry of the sea, which art a merchant of the people for many isles, thus saith the Lord God; O Tyrus, thou hast said, I am of perfect beauty.
Էջ 429 - And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Էջ 344 - I entertain no doubt of your readiness to furnish such supplies as the public service may require. I congratulate you on the improved and flourishing state of our commerce • and I trust that the abundant harvest which we have received from the bountiful hand of Providence during the present year will afford material relief to His Majesty's people, and produce a considerable augmentation in many branches of the revenue.
Էջ 10 - On holding up the head, to examine the place of separation from the body, the muscles of the neck had evidently retracted themselves considerably; and the fourth cervical vertebra was found to be cut through its substance, transversely, leaving the surfaces of the divided portions perfectly smooth and even, an appearance which could have been produced only by a heavy blow, inflicted with a very sharp instrument, and which furnished the last proof wanting to identify King Charles the First.
Էջ 9 - I. by Vandyke, by which it had been made familiar to us. It is true, that the minds of the Spectators of this interesting sight were well prepared to receive this impression ; but it is also certain, that such a facility of belief had been occasioned by the simplicity and truth of Mr. Herbert's Narrative, every part of which had been confirmed by the investigation, so far as it had advanced : and it will not be denied that the shape of the face, the forehead, an eye, and the beard, are the most important...
