Halaman 78 - Ill fares the land, to hastening ills a prey, Where wealth accumulates, and men decay: Princes and lords may flourish, or may fade ; A breath can make them, as a breath has made: But a bold peasantry, their country's pride, When once destroyed, can never be supplied.
Halaman 185 - Germany there is a rath for every profession : an architect is a baurath ; an advocate, a Justizrath, &c. &c. ; and a person with no profession at all contrives to be made a hofrath (court councillor), a very unmeaning title, which is generally given to persons who were never in a situation to give advice to the court. The title Professor is much abused, as it is certainly appropriated by many persons •who have no real claim to it by their learning or office. It is better, in conversing with a...
Halaman 13 - But these remarks are beyond our present scope, which is merely to show that, while our Prayer Book is acknowledged on all hands to be of Catholic origin, our Articles also, the offspring of an uncatholic age, are, through GOD'S good providence, to say the least, not uncatholic, and may be subscribed by those who aim at being catholic in heart and doctrine.
Halaman 122 - ... praised, will do exactly the contrary to what the late ministry did. I must contradict both these opinions. . . Should the new ministry persevere in the ancient Tory notions, the opposition, out of Parliament, will increase in a dangerous manner ; the majority of ninety-one will gradually fall off , and the intellectual spirit of the towns, as well as the power of Scotland and Ireland, will drive the English counties out of the field. If, on the contrary. Sir Robert Peel will advance, as he has....
Halaman 4 - What is it possible for the Established Church to say to these things ? The more we examine its history from the time of the Reformation to the end of the eighteenth century, the more irresistibly the painful conviction is forced upon us that it had grievously failed to do its duty. Throughout the whole of this lengthened period, a succession of men like Bedell is to be traced, who, far removed from each other in time and place, have each in their day shed a gracious light around them. But their...
Halaman 185 - Graf (Mr. Count), and often as Euer Gnaden (Your Grace). " Every man who holds any public office, should it be merely that of an under clerk, with a paltry salary of 40/. a year, must be gratified by hearing his title, not his name. Even absent persons, when spoken of, are generally designated by their official titles, however humble and unmeaning they may be. The ladies are not behind in asserting their claims to honorary appellations. All over Germany a wife insists upon taking the title of her...
Halaman 123 - Russell's proposals of free tiade, and a reform of the system of taxation, will inevitably triumph. In them, the entire future welfare of England is concealed, or rather, I should say, is plainly manifest ; and when the persons of this Whig ministry, for various reasons, now forsake the field of battle, their principles, on the other hand, take possession of it, and the apparent defeat will be changed, sooner or later, into a victory for the weal of this country. At all events, England will persevere...
Halaman 185 - Even absent persons, when spoken of, are generally designated by their official titles, however humble and unmeaning they may be. The ladies are not behind in asserting their claims to honorary appellations. All over Germany, a wife insists upon taking the title of her husband, with a feminine termination. There is madame general-ess, madame privycoimcillor-ess, madame daybook-keeper-ess, and a hundred others.
Halaman 268 - They knew that I was poor, And they thought that I was base, And would readily endure To be covered with disgrace; They judged me of their tribe, Who on dirty mammon dote, So they offered me a bribe For my vote, boys, vote!
Halaman 15 - Vindication of the Principles of the Authors of
