Seite 237 - IN the market-place of Bruges stands the belfry old and brown; Thrice consumed and thrice rebuilded, still it watches o'er the town. As the summer morn was breaking, on that lofty tower I stood, And the world threw off the darkness, like the weeds of widowhood.
Seite 260 - Not to perpetuate a Name Which must endure while the Peaceful Arts flourish, But to show That Mankind have learned to honour those Who best deserve their gratitude, The King, His Ministers, and many of the Nobles and Commoners of the Realm, Raised this Monument to JAMES WATT, 'Who directing the Force of an Original Genius Early exercised in Philosophic Research To the Improvement of The...
Seite 118 - By the time the Cayman was within two yards of me, I saw he was in a state of fear and perturbation ; I instantly dropped the mast, sprung up, and jumped on his back, turning half round as I vaulted, so that I gained my seat with my face in a right position. I immediately seized his fore legs, and, by main force, twisted them on his back ; thus they served me for a bridle.

Seite 111 - My son, fear thou the LORD and the king : and meddle not with them that are given to change...
Seite 244 - Can you explain this omen? Phys. A rainbow can only occur when the clouds containing or depositing the rain are opposite to the sun — and in the evening the rainbow is in the east, and in the morning in the west; and as our heavy rains, in this climate, are usually brought by the westerly...
Seite 2 - British expedition, and an easy victory over the barbarians of Caledonia, were the last exploits of the reign of Constantius. He ended his life in the Imperial palace of York, fifteen months after he had received the title of Augustus, and almost fourteen years and a half after he had been promoted to the rank of Caesar. His death was immediately succeeded by the elevation of Constantine.
