Seite 342 - So went to bed : where eagerly his sickness Pursued him still ; and, three nights after this, About the hour of eight, (which he himself Foretold should be his last,) full of repentance. Continual meditations, tears, and sorrows, He gave his honours to the world again, His blessed part to heaven, and slept in peace.
Seite 380 - WE, THE POOR LAW COMMISSIONERS, in pursuance of the authorities vested in Us by an Act passed in the fifth year of the reign of His late Majesty King William the Fourth, intituled "An Act for the Amendment and better Administration of the Laws relating to the Poor in England and Wales...
Seite 210 - There is no instance of a man before Gibbons who gave to wood the loose and airy lightness of flowers, and chained together the various productions of the elements with a free disorder natural to each species.
Seite 109 - The Daughter of Debate, that eke discord doth sow, Shall reap no gain where former rule hath taught still peace to grow No foreign banished wight shall anchor in this port; Our realm it brooks no stranger's force, let them elsewhere resort. Our rusty sword with rest shall first his edge employ, To poll their tops that seek such change and gape for joy.
Seite 99 - With eyes cast up unto the maiden's tower, And easy sighs, such as folk draw in love; The stately seats, the ladies bright of hue, The dances short, long tales of great delight, With words and looks that tigers could but rue, Where each of us did plead the other's right...
Seite 109 - The doubt of future foes exiles my present joy, And wit me warns to shun such snares as threaten mine annoy.

The top of hope supposed the root of ruth will be ; And fruitless all their graffed guiles, as shortly ye shall see.

Seite 168 - She said, the world obey'd, and all was peace! In that blest moment from his oozy bed Old father Thames advanc'd his rev'rend head. 330 His tresses drop'd with dews, and o'er the stream His shining horns diffus'da golden gleam : Grav'd on his urn appear'd the moon, that guides His swelling waters, and alternate tides; The figur'd streams in waves of silver roll'd, 335 And on their banks Augusta rose in gold.
Seite 341 - Resolved, Nemine Contradicente, — That the Thanks of this House be given to Mr. Speaker, for his constant and unwearied Attendance in the Chair, during the course of above Thirty-three Years, in Five successive Parliaments...
Seite 7 - ... always exerted ; and other British princes were allowed to retain their dominions beneath the Roman supremacy. Cogidumnus, who appears, from an inscription discovered at Chichester, to have reigned in or near Sussex, the ancient territory of the Regni, may be quoted as one of these tributary governors. In such a country, the native population, having a ruler of their own race and blood placed over them, were probably less oppressed than in those parts where they were immediately beneath the rod...
