Page 244 - Lesley As she ga'ed o'er the border ? She's gane, like Alexander, To spread her conquests farther. To see her is to love her, And love but her for ever ; For Nature made her what she is, And never made anither ! Thou art a queen, fair Lesley, Thy subjects we, before thee: Thou art divine, fair Lesley, The hearts o
Page 3 - Master Jonson (like the former) was built far higher in learning ; solid, but slow in his performances. Shakespeare with the English man-ofwar, lesser in bulk, but lighter in sailing, could turn with all tides, tack about and take advantage of all winds, by the quickness of his wit and invention.
Page 93 - It is unnecessary for my purpose to> enter into further details. 1 have said enough with respect to general principles, and their practical application to public measures, to indicate the spirit in which the King's Government is prepared to act.
