Stran 408 - Tis but the funeral of the former year. Let joy or ease, let affluence or content, And the gay conscience of a life well spent, Calm every thought, inspirit every grace, Glow in thy heart, and smile upon thy face. Let day improve on day, and year on year, Without a pain, a trouble, or a fear...
Stran 464 - The Queen returns these important Drafts, which upon the whole she approves; but she cannot help feeling that the main Draft, — that for communication to the American Government — is somewhat meagre.

Stran 419 - Viscount Palmerston presents his humble duty to your Majesty, and begs to state that...
Stran 274 - It was like a convulsion of nature, rather than any ordinary transaction of human life. I can only liken it to one of those earthquakes which take place in Calabria or Peru; there was a rumbling murmur, a groan, a shriek, a sound of distant thunder. No one knew whether it came from the top or the bottom of the House. There was a rent, a fissure in the ground; and then a village disappeared ; then a tall tower toppled down; and the whole of the Opposition benches became one great dissolving view of...
Stran 205 - ... transfer of so many regiments to the Company should be forthwith replaced by an increase of the establishment up to the number voted by Parliament, and for which the estimates have been taken, else we denude ourselves altogether to a degree dangerous to our own safety at...
