Strana 256 - No burden but her infant on her breast : With him she slumbers, or with him she plays, And tells him all her dreams of future days, Asks him a thousand questions, feigns replies, And reads whate'er she wishes in his eyes. — Red evening comes ; no husband's shadow falls, Where fell the reindeer's o'er the latticed walls : 'T is night ; no footstep sounds towards her door ; The day returns, — but he returns no more.
Strana 297 - I rise this time — my lords, I divide my discourse into four brandies." Here he faultered for some time ; at length he was able to add, " My lords, if ever I rise again in this house, I give you leave to cut me off root and branch for ever.
Strana 293 - ... equipment, now made an attack upon the whale. One of the harpooners made a blunder ; the fish saw the boat, took the alarm, and again fled. I now supposed it would be seen no more; nevertheless, we chased nearly a mile in the direction I imagined it had taken, and placed the boats, to the best of my judgment, in the most advantageous situations. In this case we were extremely fortunate. The fish rose near one of the boats, and was immediately harpooned. In a few minutes two more harpoons entered...
Strana 150 - Peter, a good angler and a cheerful companion, had sent word he would lodge there to-night, and bring a friend with him. My hostess has two beds, and I know you and I may have the best; we'll rejoice with my brother Peter and his friend, tell tales, or sing ballads, or make a catch, or find some harmless sport to content us, and pass away a little time without offence to God or man.
Strana 250 - States vessel, Hornet, amused himself with chasing a goat between decks. Not in the least terrified by destruction and death all around him, he persisted, till a cannon ball came and took off both the hind legs of the goat, when seeing her disabled, he jumped astride her, crying,
Strana 191 - ... any person, but really believe that the publication of notices will prevent any person from sustaining an injury, and that no person, having the notice given him, will be weak and foolish enough to expose himself to the perilous consequences of his trespass.
Strana 256 - And reads whate'er she wishes in his eyes. — Red evening comes ; no husband's shadow falls, Where fell the rein-deer's, o'er the latticed walls : 'Tis night ; no footstep sounds towards her door ; The day returns. — but he returns no more. In frenzy forth she sallies ; and with cries, To which no voice except her own replies In frightful echoes, starting all around, Where human voice again shall never sound, She seeks him, finds him not ; some angel-guide In mercy turns her from the corpse aside...
Strana 150 - On my word, master, this is a gallant trout; what shall we do with him? PISCATOR Marry, e'en eat him to supper. We'll go to my hostess from whence we came; she told me, as I was going out of door, that my brother Peter, a good angler and a cheerful companion, had sent word he would lodge there to-night, and bring a friend with him. My hostess has two beds, and I know you and I may have the best; we'll rejoice with my brother Peter and his friend, tell tales, or sing ballads, or make a catch, or find...
Strana 292 - ... through several narrow and intricate channels in the ice in the direction I observed the fish had retreated. After a little time, it was descried by the people in the boats at a considerable distance to the eastward; a general chase immediately commenced, and within the space of an hour three harpoons were struck.
Strana 291 - ... a terrific attitude — the impending blow was evident — the harpooner, who was directly underneath, leaped overboard — and the next moment the threatened stroke was impressed on the centre of the boat, which buried it in the water. Happily no one was injured. The harpooner who leaped overboard, escaped certain death by the act — the tail having struck the very spot on which he stood. The effects of the blow were astonishing. The keel was broken — the gunwales, and every plank, excepting...
