Сторінка 162 - Britain; and that the King's Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords spiritual and temporal and Commons of Great Britain in Parliament assembled, had, hath and of right ought to have, full power and authority to make laws and statutes of sufficient force and validity to bind the colonies and people of America, subjects of the Crown of Great Britain in all cases whatsoever.
Сторінка 127 - A reference to the evidence of most of the witnesses will show that the agricultural labourer of Ireland continues to suffer the greatest privations and hardships : that he continues to depend upon casual and precarious employment for subsistence ; that he is still badly housed, badly fed, badly clothed, and badly paid for his labour.
Сторінка 89 - Bench that' the laws did not presume any papists to exist in the kingdom, nor could they breathe without the connivance of the Government.
Сторінка 80 - I must do it justice : it was a complete system, full of coherence and consistency, well digested and well composed in all its parts.

Forbidden to send our beasts alive across the Channel, we killed them at home, and began to supply the sister country with cured provisions.

Сторінка 107 - Britain, a hundred harbours gave her access to the universal sea. Alas ! a rival commerce on her own element was still less welcome to England, and as early as the reign of Charles II the Levant, the ports of Europe, and the oceans beyond the Cape were forbidden to the flag of Ireland.
Сторінка 75 - Like a spear-point embedded in a living body, it inflamed all around it and deranged every vital function. It prevented the gradual reduction of the island by some native Clovis, which would necessarily have taken place if the Anglo-Normans had not arrived, and, instead of that peaceful and almost silent amalgamation of races, customs, laws, and languages which took place in England, and which is the source of many of the best elements in English life and character, the two nations remained in Ireland...
Сторінка 165 - that the right claimed by the people of Ireland to be bound only by laws enacted by His Majesty and the Parliament of that Kingdom is hereby declared to be established, and ascertained for ever, and shall, at no time hereafter, be questioned or questionable.
