Сторінка 179 - As one who long in populous city pent, Where houses thick and sewers annoy the air, Forth issuing on a summer's morn to breathe Among the pleasant villages and farms Adjoined, from each thing met conceives delight, The smell of grain, or tedded grass, or kine, Or dairy, each rural sight, each rural sound...
Сторінка 134 - ... living wheels Distinct alike with multitude of eyes ; One spirit in them ruled, and every eye Glared lightning, and shot forth pernicious fire...
Сторінка 177 - O'erhung with wild woods, thick'ning green ; The fragrant birch, and hawthorn hoar, Twin'd am'rous round the raptured scene; The flowers sprang wanton to be prest, The birds sang love on every spray — Till too, too soon, the glowing west Proclaim'd the speed of winged day. Still o'er these scenes my mem'ry wakes, And fondly broods with miser care ! Time but th' impression stronger makes, As streams their channels deeper wear.
Сторінка 14 - Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

Сторінка 362 - No etymology is given. Possibly it originated in the pulpit, when some Gaelic preacher had taken the story of Dives and Lazarus for his text; and the rich Dives, amid his torments in hell, asked in vain for a drop of water to cool his parched tongue. The intolerable thirst was his greatest punishment; and in Gaelic Aicheadh is refusal, and buirne, water from the burn or stream, whence the phrase would signify the refusal or denial of water. This is offered as a suggestion only, to account for an...
Сторінка 409 - ... difficult matter indeed. The old man exerted himself till the drops of perspiration fell from his forehead ; but, had I not been there, he must either have made some person cut it up, or have sat in it until this minute. For some time I enjoyed this scene with malicious and demure gravity, and then I showed him that he must try and pull it off over his head. A lad who stood by then drew it, till it enveloped his nose, eyes, mouth, and ears ; his arms were raised above his head, and for some minutes...
Сторінка 316 - DANDY. and belonging to the above-mentioned nations, should doubt or feel aggrieved at this assertion, I will faithfully narrate what passed constantly before my eyes in our own tent ; namely, the manner in which Sa-ni-tsa-rish's son passed the days on which there was no buffalo hunt.
Сторінка 158 - This portrait is regarded as the best that was ever taken of him in his later life. Certainly it best answers the description of him by an English...
Сторінка 157 - His house is small, and more humble in appearance than those of the average of successful lawyers or merchants. I called three times upon him ; there is no bell to the door ; once I turned the handle of it, and walked in unannounced ; on the other two occasions he had seen me coming, and...
