Born in this latter day, and the child of its own struggles, without ancestral claims, but heir of all the ages,--it will stand forth to assert the dignity of man, and wherever any member of the human family is to be succored, there its voice will reach,--as the voice of Cromwell reached across France even to the persecuted mountaineers of the Alps.
Soon as he reach'd the point, whereat the thigh Upon the swelling of the haunches turns, My leader there with pain and struggling hard Turn'd round his head, where his feet stood before, And grappled at the fell, as one who mounts, That into hell methought we turn'd again.

However, when the prize was all but reached,--and no alchemist ever looked more eagerly for the moment of projection which was to give him immortality and omnipotence,--a gruff voice startled us with an oath, and an order to desist; and I well recollect looking back, for long after, with terror to the vision of an old and ill-tempered farmer, armed with a bill-hook, and vowing our decapitation; nor did I subsequently remember without triumph the eloquence whereby alone, in my firm belief, my brother and myself had been rescued from instant death.

Drawn together after dark days and severe trials,--solemnly pledged to each other by the people whom the Union raised to a full citizenship in the Republic,--bound by a compact designed to be without limitation of time,--lifted by their consolidation to a place and fame and prosperity which they would never else have reached,--mutually necessary to each other's thrift and protection,--making a nation adapted by its organic constitution to the region of the earth which it occupies,--and now, by previous memories and traditions, by millions of social and domestic alliances, knit by heart-strings the sundering of which will be followed by a flow of the life-blood till all is spent,--these terms are but a feeble setting forth of the relations of these States to each other and to the Union.
However individuals may fail, yet it must be allowed that on the whole the human mind progresses, or tends to progress, from a less to a more perfect self-knowledge, to a fuller understanding of its own origin, its end and destiny, and of the kind of life by which that end is to be reached,--that is, if once we admit that man is a self-interpreting creature, and the work of an intelligent Creator.

The situation at the bottom of a wooded amphitheatre is delightful:-- "Sweet Be'mi'ster that bist abound By green and woody hills all round, Wi' hedges reachen up between A thousan' vields o' zummer green Where clems lofty heads do show Their sheades vor hay-meakers below An' wild hedge-flowers do charm the souls O' maidens in their evenin' strolls."

4:20 The tree that thou sawest, which grew, and was strong, whose height reached unto the heaven, and the sight thereof to all the earth; 4:21 Whose leaves were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it was meat for all; under which the beasts of the field dwelt, and upon whose branches the fowls of the heaven had their habitation: 4:22 It is thou, O king, that art grown and become strong: for thy greatness is grown, and reacheth unto heaven, and thy dominion to the end of the earth.
You see, while Sonny's thoughts is purty far-reachin' in some ways, he's received his education so sort o' hit an' miss thet the things he knows ain't to say catalogued in his mind, an' while he'll know one fac', maybe he won't be able to recall another thet seems to belong hand in hand with it.
He smiles at them in his heart; for has he not, over and above all the pretty things which he can say and do ten times as well as they, a talisman--a dozen talismans which are beyond their reach?--in the strength of which he will go home and laugh over with her, amid sacred caresses, all which makes mean men mad?

not the height and depth of this to know But reachings of that grosser element, Which, entered in and clinging to it so, With earthlier earthiness than dwells in clay, Can drag the spirit down, that, looking up, Sees, through surrounding shades of death and time, With solemn wonder, and with new-born hope, The dawning glories of its native clime; And inly swell such mighty floods of love, Unutterable longing and desire, For that celestial, blessed home above, The soul springs upward like the mounting fire, Up, through the lessening shadows on its way, While, in its raptured vision, grows more clear The calm, the high, illimitable day To which it draws more near and yet more near.
I feel my bosom glow with wonted fires: Raised from the vulgar press, my mind aspires, Wing'd with high thoughts, unto His praise to climb From deep Eternity who call'd forth time:-- That ESSENCE, which, not mov'd, makes each thing move,-- Uncreate beauty--all-creating love... Ineffable, all-powerful GOD, all free,-- Thou only liv'st, and all things live by thee... Perfection's sum--prime cause of every cause, Midst and beginning, where all good doth pause... Incomprehensible, by reachless height; And unperceived, by excessive light.

I that have studied with world-skorning thoughts The way of Heaven, and how trew Heaven is reacht To know how mighty, and how many are The strange affections of enchaunted number; How to distinguish all the motions Of the Celestiall bodies, and what power Doth separate in such forme this massive Rownd; What is his Essence, Efficacies, Beames, Foot-steps, and Shadowes; what Eternesse is, The World, and Time, and Generation; What Soule, the worlds Soule is, what the blacke Springs And unreveald Originall of Things, What their perseverance; what's life, and death, And what our certaine Restauration; Am with the staid-heads of this Time imploy'd To watch with all my Nerves a Female shade.
All that might have been,--what might be still,--the happiness cast away, and perhaps yet within my reach,--the temptation of the Devil, who appealed to my cowardice, to fly from Flora, break my vows, risk my honor and her life, for Margaret,--all this rushed through me tumultuously.

The main principle of these was to seem to spend twice as much time on each task as it needed, that you might have the other half for such private uses as were within your reach,--to elongate dinner-hours at both ends so adroitly, and on such carefully selected propitious occasions, that the elongation, or at least the whole extent of it, would pass unobserved; and, in general, to gain time, any waste ends of five minutes or quarter hours, on all possible occasions.

Nor does the actual cessation of these primeval forms, or the after presence of their fragmentary, nay, disfigured relics, disprove their reality, or their original integrity, as we could not else call them up in their proper forms at any future time, to the reacknowledging their truth: a resuscitation and result, so to speak, which many have experienced.
But this one suite, father, if unto me Thou graunt, though I cannot the same reacquite Th'immortall goddes shall render unto thee Thy due reward and largely guerdon it, That sins it pleased thee not thus secretly I might enjoy my love, his corps and myne May nathelesse together graved be And in one tombe our bodies both to shrine With which this small request eke do I praie That on the same graven in brasse thou place This woefull epitaphe which I shall saye, That all lovers may rue this mornefull case; Loe here within one tombe where harbor twaine Gismonda Quene and Countie Pallurine!
An old deserted mosque was given us for barracks; there, on the bare stone floor, in close-packed promiscuity, too tired to react to filth and vermin, we spent our first night as soldiers of the Sultan, while the milky moonlight streamed in through every chink and aperture, and bats flitted round the vaulting above the snoring carcasses of the recruits.
