第 207 頁 - To them his heart, his love, his griefs were given, But all his serious thoughts had rest in heaven: As some tall cliff that lifts its awful form, Swells from the vale, and midway leaves the storm, Though round its breast the rolling clouds are spread, Eternal sunshine settles on its head.
第 155 頁 - Her home is on the deep. With thunders from her native oak She quells the floods below, As they roar on the shore, When the stormy winds do blow...
第 331 頁 - I do not argue; I beseech you to make the arguments for yourselves. You cannot, if you would, be blind to the signs of the times.
第 335 頁 - If music be the food of love, play on, Give me excess of it ; that, surfeiting, The appetite may sicken, and so die. — That strain again ; — it had a dying fall. O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet south. That breathes upon a bank of violets. Stealing, and giving odor.
第 61 頁 - The dainty sunflower hangs its head On the shore of the summer sea ; And better far that I were dead, If Maud did not love me. I love the squirrel that hops in the corn, And the cricket that quaintly sings ; And the emerald pigeon that nods his head, And the shad that gaily springs. I love the dainty...

Its blue is the ocean shadow That hides in her dreamy eyes ; It conquers all men, like her, And still for a Union flies. Several mcmbeis of the committee being pious, it is not strange that this " anthem " has too much of the Anacreon spice to suit them.

This terrible engine was aimed at the target with great accuracy; but as the gunner has a large family dependent on him for support, he refused to apply the match.

The last weapon subjected to trial was a mountain howitzer of a new pattern. The inventor explained that its great advantage was, that...
第 58 頁 - N Source immaterial of material naught, Focus of light infinitesimal, Sum of all things by sleepless Nature wrought, Of which the normal man is decimal. Refract, in prism immortal, from thy stars To the stars bent incipient on our flag, The beam translucent, neutrifying death.
