Side 86 - God, the life and light Of all this wondrous world we see ; Its glow by day, its smile by night, Are but reflections caught from thee. Where'er we turn, thy glories shine, And all things fair and bright are thine. When day, with farewell beam, delays Among the opening clouds of even, And we can almost think we gaze Through golden vistas into heaven — Those hues, that make the sun's decline So soft, so radiant, Lord ! are thine.
Side 250 - Remembrance oft shall haunt the shore When Thames in summer wreaths is drest, And oft suspend the dashing oar To bid his gentle spirit rest...
Side 250 - OH, happy shades — to me unblest! Friendly to peace, but not to me! How ill the scene that offers rest, And heart that cannot rest, agree ! II.
Side 86 - ... o'ershadows all the earth and skies like some dark beauteous bird whose plume is sparkling with...
Side 40 - It is something to think that at least fifty thousand people will read what you write in less than a month. We print now nearly 13,000 copies, and may reckon, I suppose, modestly on three or four readers of the popular articles in each copy: no prose preachers, I believe, have so large an audience.
Side 112 - Ay, i'the name of mischief, let him be the messenger. — For my part, I wouldn't lend a hand to it for the best horse in your stable.

I wouldn't swear it mayn't go off! Acres Out, you poltroon ! you han't the valour of a grasshopper David. Well, I say no more — 'twill be sad news, to be sure, at Clod Hall! —...
Side 246 - And while the heaven-born Nine in exile rove, The beggar rents their consecrated grove ! Thence slowly winding down the vale, we view The Egerian grots — ah, how unlike the true...
Side 233 - The immense crowds of carriages, pedestrians, &c. all along the road — the respect paid to Jackson everywhere, highly comical. He sung some flash songs on the way, and I contrived to muster up one or two myself, much to Scrope Davics's surprise and diversion.
Side 147 - Hastings's business, by his (Parr's) intervention, in consequence of an attack made by Major Scott upon Fox in the House, charging him with having set on foot a negotiation with Mr. Hastings some years before. Fox, who knew nothing of the matter, had nothing to say in reply. Scott was present at this interview procured by Parr, and it appeared that the negotiation had been set on foot without the knowledge of Fox, and that Sheridan was the chief agent in it.
Side 197 - Sheridan, by way of taunt, said, 'Well, Tarleton, are you on your high horse still ?' — ' Oh, higher than ever ! if I was on a horse before, I am now on an elephant.' — ' No, no, my dear fellow ; you were on an ass before, and you are on a mule now.
