Pagina 152 - Bacchus' blessings are a treasure, Drinking is the soldier's pleasure: Rich the treasure, Sweet the pleasure, Sweet is pleasure after pain. Soothed with the sound, the king grew vain; Fought all his battles o'er again, And thrice he routed all his foes, and thrice he slew the slain!
Pagina lxxiii - Be full as hard, and near as thick, as thine ; " Yet has the world admiring on it read " Many a keen gibe, and many a sportive line. " While nothing from thy jobbernowl can spring " But impudence and filth ; for out, alas! " Do what we will, 'tis still the same vile thing, " Within, all brickdust—and without, all brass.

Pagina 60 - Marat is a little man, of a cadaverous complexion, and a countenance exceedingly expressive of his disposition; to a painter of massacres, Marat's head would be inestimable. Such heads are rare in England, yet they are sometimes to be met with at the Old Bailey.
Pagina 116 - Farewell,' continue the United Irishmen, ' farewell, great and good man; but, before you go, we beseech a portion of your parting prayer' (down upon your marrowbones, reader) 'for Archibald Hamilton Rowan, Muir, Palmer, Margaret, and Gerald, who are now, like you, preparing to cross the bleak ocean. Farewell! soon will you embrace your sons on the American shore, Washington will take you by the hand, and the shade of Franklin look down, with calm delight on the first statesman of the age, extending...
