Էջ 258 - In happy climes, the seat of innocence, Where nature guides and virtue rules, Where men shall not impose for truth and sense The pedantry of courts and schools : There shall be sung another golden age, The rise of empire and of arts, The good and great inspiring epic rage, The wisest heads, and noblest hearts.
Էջ 124 - With clashing wheel, and lifting keel, And smoking torch on high, When winds are loud and billows reel, She thunders foaming by ; When seas are silent and serene, With even beam she glides — The sunshine glimmering through the green That skirts her gleaming sides.
Էջ 258 - The Muse, disgusted at an age and clime Barren of every glorious theme, In distant lands now waits a better time, Producing subjects worthy fame: In happy climes, where, from the genial sun And virgin earth, such scenes ensue.

It will give a cheap and quick conveyance to the merchandise on the Mississippi, Missouri, and other great rivers, which are now laying open their treasures to the enterprise of our countrymen ; and although the prospect of personal emolument has been some inducement to me, yet I feel infinitely more pleasure in reflecting on the immense advantage...
