Stran vii - He was a Fellow of the Royal Society, and of the Society of Antiquaries, and joined this Society in 1839.
Stran 90 - Pero Bermuez heard the word, but he could not refrain. He held the banner in his hand, he gave his horse the rein; "You see yon foremost squadron there, the thickest of the foes, Noble Cid, God be your aid, for there your banner goes! Let him that serves and honors it, show the duty that he owes.
Stran 22 - Sir Tristram understood the Giants' courses; He felt the embers but the heat was out; He stood contemplating the roasted horses; And all at once, without suspense or doubt, His own decided judgment thus enforces...
Stran 11 - The bill of fare (as you may well suppose) Was suited to those plentiful old times, Before our modern luxuries arose, With truffles and ragouts, and various crimes ; And therefore, from the original in prose I shall arrange the catalogue in rhymes : They served up salmon, venison, and wild boars By hundreds, and by dozens, and by scores, ** Hogsheads of honey, kilderkins of mustard...
Stran 195 - HIGGINS'S literary reputation, in respect to every work of his which is conveyed to the world through the medium of our paper (though, what we think of the danger of his principles, we have already sufficiently explained for ourselves, and have, we trust, succeeded in putting our Readers upon their guard against...

Stran 15 - ... again, As if some secret recollection shook His inward heart with unacknowledged pain ; And something haggard in his eyes and look (More than his years or hardships could explain) Made him appear, in person and in mind, Less perfect than what nature had designed.
Stran 47 - Those giant-mountains inwardly were moved, But never made an outward change of place : Not so the mountain-giants — (as behoved A more alert and locomotive race), Hearing a clatter which they disapproved, They ran straight forward to besiege the place With a discordant universal yell, Like house-dogs howling at a dinner-bell.
Stran 148 - I have endeavoured to ornament and enlighten the arid truths of Euclid and algebra, will be found to have smoothed the road of demonstration, to have softened the rugged features of elementary propositions, and, as it were, to have strewed the Asses
Stran 175 - HIGGINS (for we love to quote the very words of this extraordinary and indefatigable writer), "with this view" says he in a letter dated from his study in St. Mary Axe, the window of which looks upon the parish pump — "with this view, I have turned my thoughts more particularly to the German Stage; and have composed, in imitation of the most popular pieces of that country, which have already met with so general reception and admiration in this, — a Play: which, if It has a proper run, will, I...
