Стр. 320 - Buckingham, who thus, out of bis f ami if archives, places within our reach authentic and exceedingly minute pictures of the governors of England, we owe grateful acknowledgements. His papers abound in fresh lights on old topics, and in new illustrations and anecdotes. The intrinsic value of the letters is enhanced by the judicious setting of the explanatory comment that accompanies them, which is put together with much care and honesty.
Стр. 2 - Perhaps no English artist was ever before admitted Into this enchanted land of history, or provided with the talisman and amulet of a general passport; and well has Mr. Atkinson availed himself of the privilege.
Стр. 327 - Much as has been written of late years about war and Wellington, we know of nothing that contains so striking a picture of the march and the battle as seen by an individual, or so close and homely a sketch of the Great Captain...
Стр. 320 - MEMOIRS OF THE COURT AND CABINETS OF GEORGE THE THIRD, FROM ORIGINAL FAMILY DOCUMENTS.
Стр. 12 - This is a very good and a very interesting work. It is designed to trace the career from boyhood to age of a perfect man— aChristian gentleman, and it abounds in incident both well and highly wrought. Throughout it is conceived in a high spirit, and written with great ability.

Стр. 25 - Clapped the old trumpeter twice on the back, Leaped on his bay with a dash and a swing, Bade all the bells in the city to ring, And when the red flag from the steeple went down, Open they flung every gate in the town. To boot ! and to horse ! and away like a flood, A fire in their eyes, and a sting in their blood ; Hurrying out with a flash and a flare, A roar of hot guns, a loud trumpeter's blare, And first, sitting proud as a king on his throne, At the head of them all dashed Sir Richard Tyrone....
Стр. 266 - Tis forty years from then till now — The grave gapes at my feet — Yet when I think of such a boy, I feel my old heart beat. And from my sleep I sometimes wake Hearing a feeble cry, And a voice that says, " Now, Forty-third Teach me the way to die !" HEAVEN'S SUNRISE TO EARTH'S, BLINDNESS.
