Seite 288 - In the month of May the oysters cast their spawn (which the dredgers call their spat) ; it is like to a drop of candle, and about the bigness of an halfpenny.

Seite 281 - Garbally, in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, one of His Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council in Great Britain and also in Ireland, Member of the Committee of the first for the affairs of Commerce and Colonies, Colonel of the Regiment of Militia of the County of...
Seite 431 - The Corporation is not dissolved by the Judgments of Ouster, and subsequent deaths of the Mayor and Aldermen, though they are without their magistrates.
Seite 286 - Grenville committee, appointed to try the election, reported the next day, that the sitting members were duly elected, and that the petition was not frivolous or vexatious.
