Seite 143 - In limning out a well-proportioned steed, His art with nature's workmanship at strife, As if the dead the living should exceed; So did this horse excel a common one In shape, in courage, colour, pace and bone.
Seite 162 - I'll not meddle with them any farther than to wish them wiser; and shall tell you next, for I hope I may be so bold, that the TENCH -- is the physician of fishes, for the Pike especially ; and that the Pike, being either sick or hurt, is cured by the touch of the Tench. And it is observed, that the tyrant Pike will not be a wolf to his physician, but forbears to devour him though he be never so hungry.
Seite 6 - All Nature seems at work. Slugs leave their lair — The bees are stirring — birds are on the wing — And Winter slumbering in the open air, Wears on his smiling face a dream of Spring! And I the while, the sole unbusy thing, Nor honey make, nor pair, nor build, nor sing.
Seite 135 - What a delightful thing's a turnpike road! So smooth, so level, such a mode of shaving The Earth, as scarce the eagle in the broad Air can accomplish, with his wide wings waving.

Seite 289 - Officer, or by the Owner of the Property on or with respect to which the Offence shall be committed, or by his Servant or any Person authorized by him, and forthwith taken before some neighbouring Justice of the Peace, to be dealt with according to Law...
Seite 204 - Fresh pleasure only : for the attentive mind, By this harmonious action on her powers, Becomes herself harmonious : wont so oft In outward things to meditate the charm Of sacred order, soon she seeks at home To find a kindred order, to exert Within herself this elegance of love, This fair inspired delight : her tempered powers Refine at length, and every passion wears A chaster, milder, more attractive mien.
Seite 255 - In course of time it also became the practice to call for a pint or tankard of three-threads, meaning a third of ale, beer, and twopenny; and thus the publican had the trouble to go to three casks, and turn three cocks, for a pint of liquor.
Seite 289 - Law; and if any credible Witness shall prove, upon Oath before a Justice of the Peace, a reasonable Cause to suspect that any Person has in his Possession or on his Premises any Property whatsoever, on or with respect to which any such Offence shall have been committed, the Justice may grant a Warrant to search for such Property, as in the Case of stolen Goods...
