Strana 184 - Homer is not more decidedly the first of heroic poets, Shakspeare is not more decidedly the first of dramatists, Demosthenes is not more decidedly the first of orators, than Boswell is the first of biographers. He has no second. He has distanced all his competitors so decidedly, that it is not worth while to place them. Eclipse is first, and the rest nowhere.

Strana 15 - Legislature, abrogating the supreme law which requires us to " do unto others as we would they should do unto us...
Strana i - BRINVILLIERS; the Poisoner of the 17th Century. " Albert Smith's name, as the author of any work, is quite sufficient to prove that it is an interesting one, and one that can be read with pleasure by every one.
Strana 184 - These volumes will captivate the attention of readers who, according to their various tempers, feel either inclined to laugh at or sigh over the follies of mankind."— -Times.
Strana 29 - It will keep in a cool place for two months, and is best at the latter part of the time. The beauty of this yeast is, that it ferments spontaneously, not requiring the aid of other yeast ; and, if care be taken, it will ferment well in the earthen bowl in which it is made.
