But near the ruined cottages all is calm and still, and the only objects which there meet the eye are rude steep rocks, that rise like a surrounding rampart.
Formerly, I thought that death was wearing out,--I stood ramparted about with so many healthy friends.
But strong works with ramparts and pallisades had been constructed within the breach, from which the royalists might have long maintained a sanguinary and perhaps doubtful conflict.
11 Above, Little Minook, Yukon Ramparts--" And the voice fell away into silence.
Yukon gold, Pitcairn says, comes from an older rock series than this"--he stood in the shower of sparks constantly spraying from the smoke-stack to the fireproof deck, and he waved his hand airily at the red rock of the Ramparts--"far older than any of these.
In speaking thus, I freely, if regretfully, admit that the rartk and file of both sexes are far indeed from playing their full part.
They are deprived of none of their useful qualities if covered by means of a brush with the acid, which they absorb very readily.--Quarterly Journal.
7 p.m. - 7 a.m. BOOKS rtfm.mit.edu The pub/usenet/rec.arts.books directories has reading lists for various authors as well as lists of recommended bookstores in different cities.
And while you may think your particular political issue is vitally important to the fate of the world, chances are the readers of rec.arts.comics will not, or at least not important enough to impose on them.
For example, readers of rec.arts.tv.soaps always use an acronym in their subject: line for the show they're writing about (AMC, for example, for "All My Children").
Though Albert Gallatin, Secretary of the Treasury, had recommended a recharter, the predominant sentiment of the Republican party was adverse to the measure.
The charter had still nearly eight years to run; nevertheless, in his first message to Congress (December, 1829) he denounced the Bank as unconstitutional, unnecessary, and as having failed to give the country a sound currency, and suggested that it should not be rechartered.
Resolved also, That we heartily approve of the principles set forth in the late veto message upon that subject; and Resolved, That our Senators in Congress be instructed and our Representatives requested to use their influence to prevent the rechartering of the Bank of the United States, to sustain the Administration in its removal of the public deposits, and to oppose the passage of a land bill containing the principles adopted in the act upon that subject passed at the last session of Congress.
Eintausend idiomatische englische Redensarten.
Gone, too, the blackcap, the redstart, and the little fly-catcher; vanishing in the dark night, they gathered in legions and sped across the seas.
In fact, the redstarts are the tiny fantail pigeons of the forest.

Among the letters which had accumulated during his absence, Morse found one, written some time previously, from a Mr. Reibart, who had published his name as a candidate for the Presidency of the United States.
And now how many, perhaps, may thy unparalleled confession (which we, even to the sounder British world, and goaded on by Critical and Biographical duty, grudge to reimpart) incurably infect therewith!
Old John Gibson, though not the oldest of the habitues, was the chief of our Anglo-American community; Randolph Rogers, Mosier, Reinhart, Story, and two or three other sculptors, whose names I have forgotten, and two or three American landscape painters, of whom Tilton was chief at the time of my arrival, had the monopoly of American patronage, and every wealthy American who came conceived it his duty to patronize American art, while our government had the tradition of always sending an artist to Rome as consul.
On some fond breast the parting soul Relies,--earth has no more to give; Who wholly loves has known the whole, The wholly loved doth truly live.
Religion is thus treated like Lear, to whom his ungrateful daughters first denied one half of his stipulated attendance, and then made it a question whether they should grant him any share of what remained.--Quart.
La dentelle du rempart.
The Tiare Hotel was five minutes' walk from the quay, at the junction of the rue de Rivoli and the rue de Petit Pologne, close by Pont du Remparts.
If one wishes to draw up a really complete list it would be necessary to include the jabliaux--the Renart and the Rose, which constitute the most anti-chivalrous--I had nearly written the most Voltairian--works that I am acquainted with.
Among these inspired afterthoughts may be reckoned Nora's great line, "Millions of women have done that"--the most crushing repartee in literature--Hedvig's threatened blindness, with all that ensues from it, and Little Eyolf's crutch, used to such purpose as we have already seen.
With two of the principal jokers he had exchanged the usual and conclusive form of repartee,--flattened them out literally.
for the words ascribed to Napoleon, as breathed to the memory of Desaix, never were uttered at all.--They stand in the same category of theatrical inventions as the cry of the foundering Vengeur, as the vaunt of General Cambronne at Waterloo, "La Garde meurt, mais ne se rend pas," as the repartees of Talleyrand.
In the great capitals, as Rome, Berlin, Paris, London,--in smaller capitals, as Florence, Weimar, and Boston,--in many a village which had a charm for them, as Stratford-on-Avon, Ferney, and Concord in Massachusetts,--in the homes of wonderful suffering, as Ferrara and Haworth.--on many enchanted waters, as the Guadalquivir, the Rhine, the Tweed, the Hudson, Windermere, and Leman,--in many a monastic nook whence had issued a chronicle or history, in many a wild birthplace of a poem or romance, around many an old castle and stately ruin, in many a decayed seat of revelry and joyous repartee,--through the long list of the nurseries of genius and the laboratories of art, they wandered pensive and strangely affected.
Una noche obscura, muy obscura, en que no se oia ni un rumor en la tierra ni brillaba un solo astro en el cielo, los senores de la fortaleza, engreidos por una reciente victoria, se repartian el botin, y ebrios con el vapor de los licores en mitad de la loca y estruendosa orgia, entonaban sacrilegos cantares en loor de su infernal patrono.
REPARTIE, f., reponse.
En tan angustiosa situacion, los vecinos se repartieron entre si las piezas de la armadura, que acaso por la centesima vez se encontraba en sus manos, y rogando al piadoso eremita, que un dia los ilumino con sus consejos, decidiera lo que debia hacerse de ella.
"Though I have known some of late so insolent to say, that Ben Jonson wrote his best playes without wit, imagining, that all the wit playes consisted in bringing two persons upon the stage to break jest, and to bob one another, which they call repartie, not considering, that there is more wit and invention required in the finding out good humour and matter proper for it, then in all their smart reparties; for, in the writing of a humour, a man is confined not to swerve from the character, and obliged to say nothing but what is proper to it; but in the playes which have been wrote of late, there is no such thing as perfect character, but the two chief persons are most commonly a swearing, drinking, whoring ruffian for a lover, and impudent, ill-bred tomrig for a mistress, and these are the fine people of the play; and there is that latitude in this, that almost anything is proper for them to say; but their chief subject is bawdy, and profaneness, which they call brisk writing, when the most dissolute of men, that relish those things well enough in private, are choked at 'em in publick: and, methinks, if there were nothing but the ill manners of it, it should make poets avoid that indecent way of writing.
The system goes back to the days when the spiritual, moral, and material welfare of the Indians was entrusted in encomienda to the lords of the repartimiento or allotted territory.
The New Laws provided, among other things, that all the officers of the crown were to renounce their repartimientos or holdings of Indian serfs, and that compulsory personal service was to be entirely abolished.
REPARTIR, partir de nouveau; repondre.
Un paresseux comme vous est indigne de jouir de la lumiere du soleil.--C'est precisement pour cette raison, repartit le jardinier, que je me suis mis a l'ombre."
These contributions enable us to support the current expenses of the Government, to fulfill contracts with foreign nations, to extinguish the native right of soil within our limits, to extend those limits, and to apply such a surplus to our public debts as places at a short day their final redemption, and that redemption once effected the revenue thereby liberated may, by a just repartition of it among the States and a corresponding amendment of the Constitution, be applied in time of peace to rivers, canals, roads, arts, manufactures, education, and other great objects within each State.

Sartor Resartus was written and published serially before the Queen came to the throne; the French Revolution came in the year of her accession at the very time that Carlyle's lectures were making him a fashionable sensation; most of his miscellaneous essays had already appeared in the reviews.
Sartor Resartus.--Like Coleridge, Carlyle was a student of German philosophy and literature.
I cannot quit this part of Carlyle's life without mention of what I conceive to be his most original and remarkable production,--"Sartor Resartus,"--The Stitcher Restitched: or, The Tailor Done Over,--the title of an old Scotch song.
