Seite 185 - Useless, despis'd, his worthless labours done, And half protected by the vicious Son, Who half supports him ; he with heavy glance, Views the young "ruffians who around him dance; And, by the sadness in his face, appears To trace the progress of their future years : Through what strange course of misery, vice, deceit, Must wildly wander each...

Seite 184 - Ravensworth prances in pride, And he views his domains upon Arkindale side. The mere for his net, and the land for his game, The chase for the wild, and the park for the tame ; Yet the fish of the lake, and the deer of the vale, Are...
Seite 49 - His Royal Highness the Prince Regent has been pleased, in the name and on the behalf of His Majesty, to approve and confirm the finding and sentence of the Court.
Seite 224 - Highness's notice, I must be allowed to say, that in the eyes of an observing and jealous world* this separation of a daughter from her mother, will only admit of one construction-— a construction fatal to the mother's reputation. Your Royal Highness will also pardon me for adding, that there is no less inconsistency than injustice in this treatment. He who dares advise your Royal Highness to overlook the evidence of my innocence, and disregard the sentence of complete acquittal which it produced...
