Seite 43 - Not fiery coursers, in a chariot race, Invade the field with half so swift a pace; Not the fierce driver with more fury lends The sounding lash, and, ere the stroke descends, Low to the wheels his pliant body bends. The partial crowd their hopes and fears divide, And aid with eager shouts the favor'd side. Cries, murmurs, clamors, with a mixing sound, From woods to woods, from hills to hills rebound.

Seite 32 - Horatio Lord Viscount Nelson, Duke of Bronti, in Sicily, Vice-Admiral of the White Squadron of his Majesty's Fleet, who fell gloriously in the Battle off Cape Trafalgar, on 21st day of October 1805; when he obtained for his Country a victory over the combined Fleets of France and Spain, unparalleled in Naval History; the first stone of this Triumphal Pillar, was laid by his Grace, Charles, Duke of Richmond and Lennox.

Seite 32 - On Lough Neagh's bank as the fisherman strays, When the clear, cold eve's declining, He sees the round towers of other days, In the wave beneath him shining! Thus shall memory often, in dreams sublime, Catch a glimpse of the days that are over, Thus, sighing, look through the waves of time For the long-faded glories they cover!
Seite 32 - Wide Streets Commissioners. paid him the compliment of confirming the eastward drive which he had done so much to foster; and the Gardiners, who were always devotees of the drama, would perhaps not have resented the transformation as much as we think.* • In 1831 GN Wright wrote: 'The...
Seite 35 - Courtstown ! thy walls rise in beauty and pride. From thy watch-tower's summit the bold foe is descried, Though the hearts of thy children with courage o'erflow, Still their strength is the war-shout of Qrasagh-ato, 0 Courtstown!
Seite 36 - Schomberg s emissaries, seized a card accidentally lying near him, and returned this indignant answer upon it—" Go, tell your master I despise his offer; tell him that honor and conscience are dearer to a gentleman than all the wealth and titles a prince can bestow.
