Сторінка 336 - Here hills and vales, the woodland and the plain, Here earth and water, seem to strive again ; Not chaos-like together crushed and bruised, But as the world harmoniously confused: Where order in variety we see, And where, though all things differ, all agree.

The places intended to be favoured by large charities attract, therefore, an undue proportion of the poorer classes, who, in the hope of trifling benefits to be obtained without labour, often linger on in spots most unfavourable to the exercise of their industry.

If the Legislature thinks proper to give the power of leaving property to charitable purposes recognized by the law as such, however prejudicial, the Court must administer it.

Сторінка 472 - Human beings owe to each other help to distinguish the better from the worse, and encouragement to choose the former and avoid the latter. They should be for ever stimulating each other to increased exercise of their higher faculties, and increased direction of their feelings and aims towards wise instead of foolish, elevating instead of degrading, objects and contemplations.
Сторінка 373 - Vict. c. 103, s. 1 6, it was enacted, that "where any pauper shall have in his possession or belonging to him any money or valuable security for money, the guardians of the union or parish, within which such pauper is chargeable, may take and appropriate so much of such money, or the produce of such security, or recover the same as a debt before any local court, as will reimburse the said guardians for the amount expended by them...
Сторінка 201 - Act, 1855, and this Act shall be construed together as one Act ; and any provisions of the said former Acts inconsistent with this Act are hereby repealed. 2.["] The Board of Charity Commissioners for England and Wales, subject to the restrictions and rights of appeal hereinafter provided, shall have power from time to time, upon the application of any person or persons who, under the forty-third section of the Charitable Trusts Act, 1853...
Сторінка 393 - In some cases they have a quality of evil peculiar to themselves. The majority of them are distributed among the poor inhabitants of particular parishes or towns. The places intended to be favoured by large charities attract, therefore, an undue proportion of the poorer classes, who, in the hope of trifling benefits to be obtained without labour, often linger on in spots most unfavourable to the exercise of their industry.
