Σελίδα ii - Co. of the said district, have deposited in this office the title of a book, the right whereof they claim as proprietors, in the words following, to wit : " Tadeuskund, the Last King of the Lenape. An Historical Tale." In conformity to the Act of the Congress of the United States...
Σελίδα 110 - Dreadful uproar echos round the deep abyss, whilst the never-ceasing war of jarring elements, break, quiver, burst, and roll around — As if the phrenzi'd demons of the air, Loos'd from their chains of adamant had met In fierce encounter. Mingling yells and groans of horror, appear to unite with the class of sparkling armour, and the angry spirits of the torrent, from their watery caverns, 'seem to exclaim loud and threatening, begone! — We obey the summons and hurrying precipitately away, regain...
Σελίδα 89 - Inquir'st thou, father! from what coast we came? (Oh grace and glory of the Grecian name!) From where high Ithaca o'erlooks the floods, Brown with o'er-arching shades and pendent woods Us to these shores our filial duty draws, A private sorrow, not a public cause. My sire I seek, where'er the voice of fame...
Σελίδα 105 - Horse-shoe fall creates a deep stunning roar, and whirls its spray volume after volume, a thousand feet into the air, till it seems to mingle with the clouds above. Fantastic shapes, giants, towers and sea-monsters, may be descried upon the spray, as it swells dark and watery upon the atmosphere. Sometimes a majestic being seems to rise, with his arms outstretched and his wings gradually expanding: his head strikes the clouds and slowly separates from the body. Now the wings and arms spread and become...
Σελίδα 55 - Of balmy swell, of healing power, Their souls in fragrant dews exhale, And breathe fresh life in every gale. Here, spreads a green expanse of plains, Where, sweetly pensive, silence reigns ; And there, at utmost stretch of eye, A mountain fades into the sky ; While winding round, diffus'd and deep, A river rolls with sounding sweep.
Σελίδα 43 - Sir: Lady Harriet Ackland, a Lady of the first distinction by family rank, and by personal virtues, is under such concern on account of Major Ackland, her husband, wounded and a prisoner in your hands, that I cannot refuse her request to commit her to your protection. Whatever general impropriety there may be in persons acting in your situation and mine to solicit...
Σελίδα 182 - They made us many soldiers. Chatham, still Consulting England's happiness at home, Secured it by an unforgiving frown, If any wrong'd her. Wolfe, where'er he fought, Put so much of his heart into his act, That his example had a magnet's force, And all were swift to follow whom all loved.
Σελίδα ii - In conformity to the act of Congress of the United States, entitled "an act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books, to the authors and proprietors of such copies, during the time therein mentioned." And also to an act entitled "an act supplementary to an act entitled an act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books, to the authors and proprietors of such copies, during the times therein mentioned, and extending...
Σελίδα 45 - The ridge which these hard beds (50' thick) make along the valley can be particularly well studied between Cove station and Coffee run, as the railroad in following it runs sometimes on one side and sometimes on the other side of it; but from McConnellstown station to Huntingdon the ridge is left to the west. North of the river the ridge reappears and separates the Genesee subvalley of Stone creek from the Marcellus subvalley of Muddy run.
Σελίδα 107 - While the foot-step is led by paths, among the gloomy trunks of large forest trees, one of the grandest objects of nature shows, at times, white through the bushes, and with its solemn roar, impels the mind to contemplation and awe. Adjacent, are the other little islands, with their close planted firs expanding over banks, upon which neither man or quadruped has ever yet dared to step, and deform the rustic elegance of nature. For the convenience of descending to the bottom of the falls, permanent...
