Stran 256 - Tis morn, but scarce yon level sun Can pierce the war-clouds, rolling dun, Where furious Frank and fiery Hun Shout in their sulphurous canopy. The combat deepens. On, ye brave, Who rush to glory, or the grave ! Wave, Munich ! all thy banners wave, And charge with all thy chivalry.
Stran 152 - Even at my table," — so writes Lord Cornwallis, on the 24th of July — " even at my table, where you will suppose I do all I can to prevent it, the conversation always turns on hanging, shooting, burning, and so forth ; and if a priest has been put to death, the greatest joy is expressed by the whole company.
Stran 416 - I do not like thee, Dr Fell. The reason why I cannot tell, But this I know, I know full well, I do not like thee, Dr Fell.
Stran 143 - Nor would he suffer his own wound to be examined till every man who had been previously wounded was properly attended to. Fully believing that the wound was mortal, and that he was about to die, as he had ever desired, in...
Stran xxvi - Church, and the security of the Constitution and Government, might be effectually strengthened by requiring the political test, before referred to, from the preachers of all Catholic or Dissenting congregations, and from the teachers of schools of every denomination. It is on these principles Mr. Pitt humbly conceives a new security might be obtained for the civil and ecclesiastical Constitution of this country, more applicable to the present circumstances, more free from objection, and more effectual...
Stran 334 - When Nelson joined the fleet at Yarmouth, he found the admiral 'a little nervous about dark nights and fields of ice.' ' But we must brace up,' said he ; ' these are not times for nervous systems. I hope we shall give our northern enemies that hailstorm of bullets which gives our dear country the dominion of the sea. We have it, and all the devils in the north cannot take it from us, if our wooden walls have fair play.
Stran 180 - How I long to kick those whom my public duty obliges me to court ! " It has been alleged that at this time there were also large payments of money, or, in plain words, the purchase of votes. To any large extent the allegation does not seem true. There were certainly some payments of money on both sides. There was a stock-purse of the Opposition chiefs, furnished by subscription. There was a demand from time to time of secret supplies from the Treasury in England. But these secret supplies, as confidential...
Stran 380 - And one kingdom preserv'd midst the wreck of the world. Unheeding, unthankful, we bask in the blaze, While the beams of the Sun in full majesty shine' : When he sinks into twilight, with fondness we gaze, And mark the mild lustre that gilds his decline.
Stran 7 - It is no slight affair; thousands and thousands of families, if the attempt succeeds, will be reduced to beggary. I cannot help it. If it must be, it must; and I will never blame the French for any degree of misery which they may inflict on the people of England. .... The truth is, I hate the very name of England ; I hated her before my exile; I hate her since, and I will hate her always.
Stran 141 - Thanks to your exertions," said he, writing to Sir W. and Lady Hamilton, "we have victualled and watered; and surely watering at the fountain of Arethusa, we must have victory. We shall sail with the first breeze; and be assured I will return either crowned with laurel or covered with cypress.
