Seite 211 - I have not made up my mind whether it is not ' better to bear the ills we have than fly to others we know not of.
Seite 55 - His station is there ; and he works on the crowd, He sways them with harmony merry and loud ; He fills with his power all their hearts to the brim — Was aught ever heard like his fiddle and him ? What an eager assembly ! what an empire is this ! The weary have life, and the hungry have bliss ; The mourner is cheered, and the anxious have rest : And the guilt-burthened soul is no longer opprest.
Seite 55 - The porter sits down on the weight which he bore ; The lass with her barrow wheels hither her store ; If a thief could be here, he might pilfer at ease ; She sees the musician, 'tis all that she sees...
Seite 104 - Where should this music be ? i' the air or the earth ? It sounds no more : and, sure, it waits upon Some god o' the island. Sitting on a bank, Weeping again the king my father's wreck, This music crept by me upon the waters, Allaying both their fury and my passion With its sweet air : thence I have follow'd it, Or it hath drawn me rather.

RAILROAD SYSTEM — Belgium, from its geographical position, not less than the extraordinary adaptation of the nature of the surface, seems to have invited the experiment of supplanting the old modes of conveyance, by an uniform...
Seite 277 - Jurer de maintenir l'observation d'une loi qui rend tous les sujets du roi, de quelque croyance religieuse qu'ils soient, habiles à posséder toutes les dignités et emplois quelconques, ce serait justifier d'avance et sanctionner les mesures qui pourront être prises pour confier les intérêts de notre sainte religion dans ces provinces, si éminemment catholiques, à des fonctionnaires protestants.
Seite 277 - Jurer d'observer et de maintenir une loi qui attribue au souverain, et à un souverain qui ne professe pas notre sainte religion, le droit de régler l'instruction publique, les écoles supérieures, moyennes et inférieures, c'est lui livrer à discrétion l'enseignement public, c'est trahir honteusement les plus chers intérêts de l'église catholique.
Seite 37 - ... embargo was terminated by the French in 1794, and Antwerp, under the dominion of France, rose again into new and augmented importance. The period of its union with Holland, however, from 1815 to 1830, may be said to have been the golden age of Antwerp.
