Seite 207 - As when the moon, refulgent lamp of night! O'er heaven's clear azure spreads her sacred light, When not a breath disturbs the deep serene, And not a cloud o'ercasts the solemn scene; Around her throne the vivid planets roll, And stars unnumbered gild the glowing pole; O'er the dark trees a yellower verdure shed, And tip with silver every mountain's head.
Seite 190 - No, never shall I lose the trace Of what I've felt in this bright place. And, should my spirit's hope grow weak, Should I, oh God, e'er doubt thy power, This mighty scene again I'll seek, At the same calm and glowing hour, And here, at the sublimest shrine That Nature ever rear'd to Thee, Rekindle all that hope divine, And feel my immortality !

Seite 346 - China for opium, a drug whose importation has of late years exceeded the aggregate value of every other English import combined, deserves some particular notice, especially in connexion with the revenues of British India, of which it forms an important item.
Seite 184 - His dominion seems now to be completely established. He is not only a great warrior and politician, but a very acute trader, and a. match for any European in driving a bargain. He is well acquainted with the different weights and measures, and the value which all articles ought to bear in exchange with each other ; and is ever ready to take the advantage of the necessities of those who apply to him or his people for supplies.
Seite 106 - They are proud and insolent, and nothing will induce them to acknowledge any human being as their superior, or to show any marks of respect. They address the settlers without the Mr. prefixed to their names ; and on entering a room, they never salute or remain standing, but immediately seat themselves.
