Strana 196 - Now the hungry lion roars, And the wolf behowls the moon ; Whilst the heavy ploughman snores, All with weary task fordone. Now the wasted brands do glow, Whilst the screech-owl, screeching loud, Puts the wretch that lies in woe In remembrance of a shroud.
Strana 182 - He who ascends to mountain-tops, shall find The loftiest peaks most wrapt in clouds and snow; He who surpasses or subdues mankind, Must look down on the hate of those below.

Strana 128 - And muft Lavinia then, our only joy, Wed with this wand'ring fugitive of Troy ? And can a father iflue the decree, So fatal to himfelf, to her and me ? For fure the pirate foon will bear away 4&p With the firft rjfing wind the lovely prey.

Crowds of excited people gathered about the jail determined to seize the prisoner and lynch him, but the sheriff adopted such precautions that no serious effort was made at a rescue. But popular feeling now took another form. It was determined to resist to the last any effort that might be made to secure the escape of the criminal under cover of alleged insanity. The greatest vigilance was maintained over every movement...
Strana 263 - Rage that flafhed from his Eyes, his Zeal for his Country, his Courage, his Intrepidity, all thefe made them immediately come into the fame Engagement. The very Shame of having been...
