Side 47 - We go to Portugal, not to rule, not to dictate, not to prescribe constitutions— but to defend and preserve the independence of an ally. We go to plant the standard of England on the wellknown heights of Lisbon. Where that standard is planted, foreign dominion shall not come.
Side 68 - For the sake, therefore, of the whole society, for the sake of the laboring classes themselves, I hold it to be clearly expedient that, in a country like this, the right of suffrage should depend on a pecuniary qualification. But, sir, every argument which would induce me to oppose Universal Suffrage induces me to support the plan which is now before us. I am opposed to Universal Suffrage, because I think that it would produce a destructive revolution. I support this plan, because I am sure that...
Side 319 - In my opinion the third sound principle is this : to strive to cultivate and maintain, aye, to the very uttermost, what is called the concert of Europe ; to keep the powers of Europe in union together.

Side 4 - This faded form! this pallid hue! This blood my veins is clotting in, My years are many — they were few When first I entered at the U— — niversity of Gottingen — — niversity of Gottingen.
Side 80 - Does there remain any species of coercion which was not tried by Mr. Pitt and by Lord Londonderry? We have had laws. We have had blood. New treasons have been created. The Press has been shackled. The Habeas Corpus Act has been suspended. Public meetings have been prohibited. The event has proved that these expedients were mere palliatives. You are at the end of your palliatives. The evil remains. It is more formidable than ever. What is to be done...
Side 349 - ... a love of peace, as has been pretended, was his ruling principle. It was a sin against light. No man had a clearer view of the impending mischief and misery of the Spanish war. On the very day of the Declaration, when joyful peals were heard from every steeple of the City, the Minister muttered, "They may ring the bells now; before long they will be wringing their hands...
Side 354 - Sultan ; animated by the desire of maintaining the integrity and independence of the Ottoman Empire as a security for the peace of Europe...
