Stran 737 - Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light, What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming. Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Stran 44 - twas but the wind, Or the car rattling o'er the stony street; On with the dance! let joy be unconfined; No sleep till morn, when Youth and Pleasure meet To chase the glowing Hours with flying feet But hark!
Stran 26 - ... of Parma, the colony or province of Louisiana, with the same extent that it now has in the hands of Spain, and that it had when France possessed it; and such as it should be after the treaties subsequently entered into between Spain and other states.
Stran 378 - Canst thou copy in verse one chime Of the wood-bell's peal and cry, Write in a book the morning's prime, Or match with words that tender sky? Wonderful verse of the gods, Of one import, of varied tone; They chant the bliss of their abodes To man imprisoned in his own.
Stran 227 - All the powers relating to the management of the schools are vested in a corporate body called " the Board of President and Directors of the St. Louis Public Schools," the members of the board to be elected for terms of three years.
Stran 307 - While the land owner is busy keeping account betwixt himself and his negro hands, ginning their cotton for them, doing all the marketing of produce and supplies, of which they have the lion's share, and has hardly a day he can call his own, the hands may be earning a dollar a day from him for work which is quite as much theirs as his. Yet the negroes, with all their superabounding privilege on the cotton-field, make little of it A ploughman or a herd in the Old World would not exchange his lot for...
Stran 26 - I know the full value of Louisiana, and I have been desirous of repairing the fault of the French negotiator who abandoned it in 1763. A few lines of a treaty have restored it to me, and I have scarcely recovered it, when I must expect to lose it. But if it escapes from me, it shall one day cost dearer to those who oblige me to strip myself of it, than to those to whom I wish to deliver it.
Stran 734 - BALTIMORE, his heirs and assigns, all that part of the Peninsula, or Chersonese, lying in the parts of America between the ocean on the east and the bay of Chesapeake on the west...
Stran 611 - O Lord, O my Lord, O my good Lord, Keep me from sinkin ' down 1 0 my Lord, O my good Lord, Keep me from sinkin ' down ! 1 tell you what I mean to do, Keep me from sinkin...
Stran 25 - The first of these forts — that is, that on the right, which is most considerable— is called St. Charles, the other St. Louis. " In the rear, and to cover the city on the land side, are three other forts. They are less considerable than the two first. There is one at each of the two salient angles of the long square forming the city, and a third between the two, a little beyond the line, so as to form an obtuse angle.* These three forts have no covered way and are not revetted,f but are merely...
