I hate myself: And who is it I have reason to value?--Not the man who could form a plot to disgrace his own hopes, as well as a poor friendless creature, (made friendless by himself,) by insults not to be thought of with patience.
Grandest, flattest,--muddiest, dustiest,--hottest, coldest,--wettest, driest,--farthest north, south, east, and west from other places, consequently most central,--best harbor on Lake Michigan, worst harbor and smallest river any great commercial city ever lived on,--most elegant in architecture, meanest in hovel-propping,--wildest in speculation, solidest in value,--proudest in self-esteem, loudest in self-disparagement,--most lavish, most grasping,--most public-spirited in some things, blindest and darkest on some points of highest interest.
he thought to himself,--"hum!--a little rustic belle, I suppose,--well aware of her own value;--rather piquant, on my word!"
Mr. Wilson,--without making the least allusion to this testimony, which we cannot help regarding as of the strongest possible kind, intimates that the presents were of very little value,--represents the workmanship, which excited the admiration of the best European artificers, as a mere specimen of "savage ingenuity,"--and as for the wheel of gold, tells us that it "never existed but in the fertile fancy of Cortez."
Be tender of this fragile flower that Providence hath put under thy protection, Sigismund; cherish it as thou valuest thine own soul; the generous and confiding love of a virtuous woman is always a support, frequently a triumphant stay, to the tottering principles of man.
For others other values,--they had found their only realities in the human affections.
I tell you, sirs, tho you set so light by Christ and salvation, God doth not so: He will not give them on such terms as these: He valueth the blood of His Son, and the everlasting glory, and He will make you value them if ever you have them.
He believed that Hebrew was the language of heaven,--that the ten tribes of the Jews had reappeared in the North American Indians,--that there was no such thing as disinterested benevolence, and that the doings of the unregenerate had some value,--that slavery was a divine ordinance, and that Dr. H. was a radical, who did more harm than good,--and, finally, that there never was so great a man as Dr. Stiles; and as Dr. Stiles belonged to him in the capacity of master, why, he, Digo, owned the greatest man in America.
* * * * * WHAT THINGS WE OUGHT TO DESPISE AND WHAT THINGS WE OUGHT TO VALUE.--The difficulties of all men are about external things, their helplessness is about external.
And here let it be remarked, to the disgrace of the receivers, that he is then made free, not--as a reward for his past services, but, as his labour is then of little or no value,--to save the tax.
Vltimo die mensis Octobris, episcopus Wintoniensis accessit ad concilium Constanciense, peregrinaturus Hierosolymam post electionem summi pontificis celebratam, vbi tantum valuit eius facunda persuasio, vt et excitaret dominos Cardinales ad concordiam, et ad electionem summi pontificis se ocyus praepararent.

The crustaceans live within their shells or take advantage of ready-made refuges of limestone, expelling their former owners; the animal-plants exhale toxins; the planctonic beings, transparent and gelatinous, burn like a crystal exposed to fire; some organisms apparently weak and flabby, have in their tails the force of a carpenter's bit, perforating the rock sufficiently to create a cavern of refuge in its hard interior.... And the timid mollusks, trembling and succulent pulp, have fabricated for their protection the strong shields of their valves,--two concave walls that on opening form their door, and on closing, their house.
"A barley-corn he mounts for a speare, His helmet with hops is hung, He lightes the eye with a laughing leere, With a carolle he tipps the tongue-- And he marshals a valyant hoste Of spices and crabbes and toaste; And the stoutest of yeomen they well can o'erthrow, When he leads them in beakers and jugs to the foe,-- And Syr Tankarde his prowess may boaste."
Yet no newse of my brother: as I live The youth is valyent, feare deters hym not.

It was upon this sight then that Gahan of Gathol looked, over the edge of the careening deck of the Vanator, as he sought to learn the fate of his warrior.
* * * * * Vanbeest Brown had escaped from captivity and attained the rank of captain after Mannering left India, and his regiment having been recalled home, was determined to persevere in his addresses to Julia while she left him a ray of hope, believing that the injuries he had received from her father might dispense with his using much ceremony towards him.

Since we are here, instead of returning direct to the river let us go a few yards along this Via della Spada to the left, cross the Via de' Fossi, and so come to the busy Via di Pallazzuolo, on the left of which, past the piazza of S. Paolino, is the little church of S. Francesco de' Vanchetoni.
And so Miss Jones, the mantua-maker, Has let her cottage on the hill?-- The drollest man, a sugar-baker, Last year imported from the till-- Prates of his orses and his oney, Is quite in love with fields and farms-- A horrid Vandal,--but his money Will buy a glorious coat of arms; Old Clyster makes him take the waters; Some say he means to give a ball-- And after all, with thirteen daughters, I think, Sir Thomas, you might call.
When, in the third century, Christian mobs set about their vandalistic work of destroying the "Pagan" temples, tearing down the beautiful calm gods and goddesses from their pedestals, and breaking their exquisite marble limbs with brutish mallets, it was not, we may be sure, of the danger to their precious souls they were thinking, but of their patrician masters who had worshipped these fair images, and paid great sums to famous sculptors for such adornment of their sanctuaries.

"Go on, Vanderbilt," said Mr. Travers; "I'm listening."

Mr. Editor,--No doubt most of your readers are well acquainted with Colley Cibber's Apology for his Life, &c., first printed, I believe, in 1740, 4to, with a portrait of himself, painted by Vanloo, and engraved by Vandergucht.

The tale is told that Lettow was furious when Fischer, the major in command at Moschi, was bluffed out of his impregnable position there by Vandeventer, evacuated the northern lines, and retired on Kahe, thus saving us the expense of taking a natural fortress that would have taxed all our energies.

Once again he was brought into an external state of mind, and some maidens were introduced, who were extremely beautiful, being images of celestial affection; and they, with the sweet voice of their affection, addressed him; and instantly, on seeing and hearing them, his countenance changed, and he returned of himself into his internals, which were adulterous; and since such internals cannot endure any thing of celestial love, and neither on the other hand can they be endured by celestial love, therefore both parties vanished,--the maidens out of sight of the man, and the man out of sight of the maidens.
If thou vanishest, thou tell'st the world It is not worth leave-taking.
So comes this marvellous emotion; and so vanishes,--to where no straining of our mortal faculties will ever carry them.
Our life is short and tedious, and in the death of a man there is no recovery, neither was any man known that hath returned from the grave; for we are born at all adventure, and we shall be hereafter as though we had never been; for the breath is as smoke in our nostrils, &c., and the spirit vanisheth as the soft air." "
would it be so to the very end and vanishment of all?
No, not at all, Alcander; I'm my self, I was not in a Dream, nor in a Passion When she appear'd, her Face a little pale, But else my own Erminia, she her self, I mean a thing as like, nay, it spoke too, And I undaunted answer'd it again; But when you knockt it vanisht.
