Sivu 559 - Then ensued a scene of woe the like of which no eye had seen, no heart conceived, and which no tongue can adequately tell. All the horrors of war before known or heard of were mercy to that new havoc. A storm of universal fire blasted every field, consumed every house, destroyed every temple.
Sivu 220 - To which is prefixed, a discourse on the conduct of the government of Great Britain in respect to neutral nations.
Sivu 559 - ... every house, destroyed every temple. The miserable inhabitants, flying from their flaming villages, in part were slaughtered; others, without regard to sex, to age, to the respect of rank or sacredness of function, fathers torn from children, husbands from wives, enveloped in a whirlwind of cavalry, and amidst the goading spears of drivers, and the trampling of pursuing horses, were swept into captivity in an unknown and hostile land.

Sivu 559 - A storm of universal fire blasted every field, consumed every house, destroyed every temple. The miserable inhabitants, flying from their flaming villages, in part were slaughtered ; others, without regard to sex, to age, to the respect of rank, or sacredness of function, — fathers torn from children, husbands from wives, — enveloped in a whirlwind of cavalry, and amidst the goading spears of drivers, and the trampling of pursuing horses, were swept into captivity in an unknown and hostile land.

What ! shear a wolf ? Yes. But will he comply ? have you considered the trouble ? how will you get this wool ? Oh ! I have considered nothing, and I will consider nothing but my right : A wolf is an animal that has wool ; all animals that have wool are to be shorn, and therefore I will shear the wolf.

But in these cases We still have judgment here; that we but teach Bloody instructions, which, being taught, return To plague the inventor; this even-handed justice Commends the ingredients of our poison'd chalice To our own lips.
Sivu 263 - Instead of having magazines filled with provisions, we have a scanty pittance scattered here and there in the different states. "Instead of having our arsenals well supplied with military stores, they are poorly provided, and the workmen all leaving them.
Sivu 559 - Carnatic an everlasting monument of vengeance, and to put perpetual desolation as a barrier between him and those, against whom the faith which holds the moral elements of the world together, was no protection. He became at length so confident of his force, so collected in his might, that he made no secret whatsoever of his dreadful resolution.
Sivu 101 - Ordinary service must be secured by the motives to ordinary integrity. I do not hesitate to say that that State which lays its foundation in rare and heroic virtues will be sure to have its superstructure in the basest profligacy and corruption.
