Strana 98 - This law of nature, being coeval with mankind, and dictated by God himself, is of course superior in obligation to any other. It is binding over all the globe, in all countries, and at all times: no human laws are of any validity, if contrary to this; and such of them as are valid derive all their force, and all their authority, mediately or immediately, from this original.
Strana 126 - To erect a bank, and to regulate commerce, are very different acts. He who erects a bank, creates a subject of commerce in its bills ; so does he who makes a bushel of. wheat, or digs a dollar out of the mines ; yet neither of these persons regulates commerce thereby.
Strana 239 - Not food alone, but labor from thy hand, First, in the field, beneath the sun's strong rays, Ask of thy mother earth the needful maize ; She loves the race that courts her yielding soil, And gives her bounties to the sons of toil. When now the ox, obedient to thy call, Repays the loan that fill'd the winter stall, Pursue his traces o'er the furrow'd plain, And plant in measured hills the golden grain.
Strana 241 - So the vex'd caldron rages, roars, and boils. First with clean salt she seasons well the food, Then strews the flour, and thickens all the flood. Long o'er the simmering fire she lets it stand ; To stir it well demands a stronger hand ; The husband takes his turn : and round and round The ladle flies.

I asked you the question once before; it breathes the very spirit of innocence, purity, and simplicity of heart ; there are many choice old verses interspersed in it ; it would sweeten a man's temper at any time to read it ; it would Christianize every discordant angry passion ; pray make yourself acquainted with it.
Strana 240 - ... man shall still belong, Unshared by them, in substance or in song. At last the closing season browns the plain, And ripe October gathers in the grain; Deep loaded carts the.
Strana 239 - And plant in measured hills the golden grain. But when the tender germ begins to shoot, And the green spire declares the sprouting root. Then guard your nursling from each greedy foe, The insidious worm, the all-devouring crow.
Strana 96 - That all political powe'r is vested in, and derived from the people; that all government of right originates from the people, is founded upon their will only, and is instituted solely for the good of the whole.
Strana 564 - That it is the opinion of this committee that the promissory notes of the Bank of England have hitherto been, and are at this time, held in public estimation to be equivalent to the legal coin of the realm, and generally accepted as such in all pecuniary transactions to which such coin is lawfully applicable.
Strana 239 - tis served, and then in equal haste, With cooling milk, we make the sweet repast. No carving to be done, no knife to grate The tender ear and wound the stony plate ; But the smooth spoon, just fitted to the lip, And taught with art the yielding mass to dip, By frequent journeys to the bowl well stored, Performs the hasty honors of the board.
