Seite 143 - O happy age ! when Hope's unclouded ray Lights their green path, and prompts their simple mirth; Ere yet they feel the thorns that lurking lay To wound the wretched pilgrims of the earth, Making them rue the hour that gave them birth And threw them on a world so full of pain, Where prosperous folly treads on patient worth, And to deaf pride misfortune pleads in vain !

Welcome ye rude climes, The realm of Nature ! for as yet unknown The crimes and comforts of luxurious life, Nature benignly gives to all enough, Denies to all a superfluity. What tho' the garb of infamy I wear, Tho...
Seite 397 - Sir, — I have the honour to acquaint you, for the information of the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, that...
Seite 283 - I at first took this to be a regulation of the police ; but, on further inquiry, find it is a religious rite preparatory to the Sabbath ; and is, I believe, the only religious rite, in which the numerous sectaries of this city perfectly agree. The ceremony begins about sunset, and continues till about ten or eleven at night. It is very difficult for a stranger to walk the streets...
Seite 145 - I'll warrant she'd fancy a ghost by her side, And faint if she saw a white cow.
