Page 788 - Beauty while earth spins round! Bind her, grind her, burn her with fire, Cast her ashes into the sea, — She shall escape, she shall aspire, She shall arise to make men free: She shall arise in a sacred scorn, Lighting the lives that are yet unborn; Spirit supernal, Splendour eternal, ENGLAND!

An engraving of the " Gerrymander" was made, and hawked about the State, which had some effect in annoying the democratic party.
Page 611 - With heart that only to a sword thrust yields; And there were generals decked in pride of rank, Red scabbard swinging from the weary flank; And slender youths who were the sons of kings, And barons with their sixteen quarterings. And while the nobles went with haughty...
Page 871 - In the present unorganized condition of international relations it could not well be otherwise. But let them remember that impotence, like power, has duties as well as privileges ; and if they cannot enforce the law on those who violate both its spirit and its letter let them not make haste to criticize belligerents who may thereby be compelled in selfdefence to violate its letter, while carefully regarding its spirit.
