Side 405 - It consisted of three arches, elegantly light in their construction, and was admired by all who saw it. Unfortunately, a great flood which occurred drifted down a quantity of timber against the bridge. In consequence of this obstruction to the flood, a thick and strong dam, as it were, was formed. The aggregate of so many collected streams being unable to get any further, rose here to a prodigious height, and with the force of its pressure carried the bridge entirely away before it. William Edwards...
Side 38 - Tis hard to say if greater want of skill Appear in writing or in judging ill ; But of the two less dangerous is th' offence To tire our patience than mislead our sense : Some few in that, but numbers err in this, Ten censure wrong for one who writes amiss ; A fool might once himself alone expose, Now one in verse makes many more in prose.
Side 76 - As human Nature's broadest, foulest blot, Chains him, and tasks him, and exacts his sweat With stripes, that Mercy with a bleeding heart Weeps when she sees inflicted on a beast. Then what is man ? And what man seeing this, And having human feelings, does not blush And hang his head, to think himself a man...
Side 236 - They, looking back, all the eastern side beheld Of Paradise, so late their happy seat, Waved over by that flaming brand; the gate With dreadful faces thronged and fiery arms. Some natural tears they dropped, but wiped them soon; The world was all before them, where to choose Their place of rest, and Providence their guide.
Side 193 - The active powers of man, with wise intent The hand of Nature on peculiar minds Imprints a different bias, and to each Decrees its province in the common toil.
Side 401 - What is a man, If his chief good and market of his time Be but to sleep and feed ? a beast, no more. Sure, he that made us with such large discourse, Looking before and after, gave us not That capability and god-like reason To fust in us unused.
Side 206 - Never, perhaps, was witnessed a finer scene than on the deck of my little ship, when all hope of life had left us. Noble as the character of the British sailor is always allowed to be in cases of danger, yet I did not believe it to be possible that amongst forty-one persons not one repining word should have been uttered.
Side 86 - Fragments. Honest Patten proceeds, with great prolixity, to prove, that this was a custom more honoured in the breach than in the observance ; and, like Fluellen, declares, "that such idle pribble-prabbles were contrary to all the good customs and disciplines of war.
Side 193 - Imprints a different bias, and to each Decrees its province in the common toil. To some she taught the fabric of the sphere, The changeful Moon, the circuit of the stars, The golden zones of Heaven ; to some she gave To weigh the moment of eternal things, Of time, and space, and Fate's unbroken chain, And will's quick impulse : others by the hand She led o'er vales and mountains, to explore What healing virtue swells the tender veins Of herbs and flowers; or what the beams of morn Draw forth, distilling...
Side 405 - Edwards, however, possessed a courage and a confidence in his powers which never forsook him ; he engaged in the work a third time, and by means of cylindrical holes through the haunches, so reduced their weight, that there was no longer any danger from it. The second bridge fell in 1751 ; the third, which has stood ever since, was completed in 1761.
