Seite 49 - ... had this innocent grow up to the grossness and indocility which too often accompany maturer swinehood ? Ten to one he would have proved a glutton, a sloven, an obstinate, disagreeable animal, wallowing in all manner of filthy conversation. From these sins he is happily snatched away. Ere sin could blight or sorrow fade. Death came with timely care.
Seite 98 - This law of nature being coeval with mankind, and dictated by God himself, is of course superior in obligation to any other. It is binding over all the globe, in all countries, and at all times; no human laws are of any validity if contrary to this; and such of them as are valid derive all their force and all their authority, mediately or immediately, from this original.
Seite 242 - ... man shall still belong, Unshared by them, in substance or in song. At last the closing season browns the plain, And ripe October gathers in the grain; Deep loaded carts the.
Seite 243 - So the vex'd caldron rages, roars, and boils. First with clean salt she seasons well the food, Then strews the flour, and thickens all the flood. Long o'er the simmering fire she lets it stand ; To stir it well demands a stronger hand ; The husband takes his turn : and round and round The ladle flies.

Seite 244 - First in your bowl the milk abundant take, Then drop with care along the silver lake Your flakes of pudding; these at first will hide Their little bulk beneath the swelling tide; But when their growing mass no more can sink, When the soft island looms above the brink, Then check your hand; you've got the portion's due, So taught our sires, and what they taught is true.
Seite 557 - There shall be neither slavery nor involuntary servitude in the said territory, otherwise than in the punishment of crimes, whereof the party shall have been duly convicted : Provided always, That any person escaping into the same, from whom labor or service is lawfully claimed in any one of the original States, such fugitive may be lawfully reclaimed, and conveyed to the person claiming his or her labor or service as aforesaid.
Seite 242 - Beneath his genial smiles, the well-drest field, When autumn calls, a plenteous crop shall yield. Now the strong foliage bears the standards high, And shoots the tall top-gallants to the sky; The suckling ears...
Seite 244 - Whose mass adhesive to the metal clings, Where the strong labial muscles must embrace The gentle curve and sweep the hollow space. With ease to enter and discharge the freight, A bowl less concave but still more dilate Becomes the pudding best. The shape, the size, A secret rests unknown to vulgar eyes: Experienc'd feeders can alone impart A rule so much above the lore of art. These tuneful lips, that thousand spoons have tried, With just precision could the point decide, Tho' not in song; the muse...
