For advantages so numerous and highly important it is our duty to unite in grateful acknowledgments to that Omnipotent Being from whom they are derived, and in unceasing prayer that He will endow us with virtue and strength to maintain and hand them down in their utmost purity to our...
Página 221 - As no other animal has so human-like an expression in its countenance, so also is there none that seems to possess more of the passions of humanity. The wounded animal dived immediately, and brought up a number of its companions ; and they all joined in an attack upon the boat. They wrested an oar from one of the men ; and it was with the utmost difficulty that the crew could prevent them from staving or upsetting her, till the Carcasfs boat came up : and the walruses, finding their enemies thus...
Página 192 - O Pallas ! thou hast fail'd thy plighted word, To fight with caution, not to tempt the sword : I warn'd thee, but in vain ; for well I knew What perils youthful ardour would pursue ; That boiling blood would carry thee too far, Young as thou wert in dangers, raw to war ! O curst essay of arms, disastrous doom, Prelude of bloody fields and fights to come...
Página 192 - The king being at Oxford during the civil wars, went one day to see the public library, where he was shewn, among other books, a Virgil, nobly printed and exquisitely bound. The Lord Falkland, to divert the king, would have his majesty make a trial of his fortune by the sortes virgiliante, which every body knows was an unusual kind of augury some ages past.
Página 331 - The tree under which we were seated, the luminous insects flying in the air, the constellations that shone toward the south ; every object seemed to tell us, that we were far from our native soil.
