Stran 431 - Then thought I to understand this : but it was too hard for me, Until I went into the sanctuary of God : then understood I the end of these men; Namely, how thou dost set them in slippery places : and castest them down, and destroyest them.
Stran 853 - ... 5. To revenge this conduct on the peaceable inhabitants of France would be unmanly and unworthy of the nations to whom the Commander of the Forces now addresses himself, and at all events would be the occasion of similar and worse evils to the army at large than those which the enemy's army have suffered in the Peninsula, and would eventually prove highly injurious to the public interests.
Stran 615 - The boast of heraldry, the pomp of power, And all that beauty, all that wealth e'er gave, Await alike the inevitable hour: The paths of glory lead but to the grave.
Stran 885 - We shall lose him, however, if he continues to expose himself in fire as he has done in the last three days; indeed his escape was then wonderful. His hat and coat were shot through in many places, besides the wound in his leg. He places himself among the sharp-shooters, without, as they do, sheltering himself from the enemy's fire.
Stran 113 - I now beheld a figure creep painfully, which one could scarcely believe to be a human being, so wild and distorted were the features ; the lips were rotted away, the teeth stood exposed. He pulled the cloth from before his mouth, and grinned on us like a death's head...

Stran 431 - Tush, say they, how should God perceive it? is there knowledge in the Most High ? 12 Lo, these are the ungodly: these prosper in the world ; and these have riches in possession : and I said, Then have I cleansed my heart in vain, and washed mine hands in innocency. 13 All the day long have I been punished, and chastened every morning.
Stran 416 - Shortly befote his death, Junot wrote a letter to the Emperor, which, amidst much excitement arising from commencing insanity, contained expressions strongly descriptive of the feelings entertained by his early companions in arms at that period : — ' I, who love you with the adoration of the savage for the sun — I, who live only in you — even I implore you to terminate this eternal war. Let us have peace. I would wish to repose my worn-out head, my painracked limbs in my house, in the midst...
Stran 171 - Men met each other with erected look, The steps were higher that they took ; Friends to congratulate their friends made haste, And long inveterate foes saluted as they pass'd...
Stran 770 - We started with the army in the highest order, and up to the day of the battle, nothing could get on better; but that event has, as usual, totally annihilated all order and discipline. The soldiers of the army have sot among them about a million sterling in money, with the exception of about 100,000 dollars, which were got for the military chest.
