Seite 178 - How lov'd, how honour'd once, avails thee not, To whom related, or by whom begot ; A heap of dust alone remains of thee, 'Tis all thou art, and all the proud shall be ! Poets themselves must fall, like those they sung, Deaf the prais'd ear, and mute the tuneful tongue.
Seite 34 - TEARS, idle tears, I know not what they mean, Tears from the depth of some divine despair Rise in the heart, and gather to the eyes, In looking on the happy Autumn-fields, And thinking of the days that are no more. Fresh as the first beam glittering on a sail, That brings our friends up from the underworld, Sad as the last which reddens over one That sinks with all we love below the verge ; So sad, so fresh, the days that are no...

Seite 177 - Lo! where this silent marble weeps, A Friend, a Wife, a Mother sleeps: A Heart, within whose sacred cell The peaceful Virtues lov'd to dwell. Affection warm, and Faith sincere, And soft Humanity were there. In agony, in death resign'd, She felt the Wound she left behind. Her infant Image here below Sits smiling on a Father's woe : Whom what awaits, while yet he strays Along the lonely vale of days? A Pang, to secret sorrow...

Accordingly, they were incorporated by the name of the parish of St. Dennis, till such time as they should understand English. They have now a good church built about the time St. Thomas's was, and never had but one minister, Mr. Lapierre.

Seite 113 - Many of these persons were in the Province and were residents in the Orange Quarter before the apparent dates of these warrants. They seem to have gone into possession under some authority, leave, or agreement, prior to receiving warrants and grants. These names however constitute so far as the writer has been able to ascertain the names of the French settlers of that locality up to say 1711. They seem all to have settled there posterior to 1685 and if the date of settlement was the date of arrival...
Seite 99 - THE ORANGE QUARTER AND THE FIRST FRENCH SETTLERS IN SOUTH CAROLINA BY HENRY AM SMITH The late Genl. Edward McCrady whose work published in 1897 may be regarded as the latest authoritative history of the period, gives the following account of the first French settlers: "In the redistribution of the lots in old Charles Town, Richard "Batin, Jacques Jours, and Richard Deyos received town lots. "These are assumed to have been French Protestants, but upon "what authority is not known. In 1677 grants were...
Seite 113 - Peter Poitvin." How it acquired the name "Orange" Quarter the writer has never been able definitely to ascertain. Howe in his History of the Presbyterian Church in South Carolina published in 1870 states that it has been conjectured that the name was derived from the principality of Orange in the province of Avignon which at the period of the revocation belonged to William Prince of Orange afterwards King of England. He gives no authority for this conjecture. Shipp in his History of Methodism in...
