Страница 46 - All that pass by clap their hands at thee; they hiss and wag their head at the daughter of Jerusalem, saying, Is this the city that men call The perfection of beauty, The joy of the whole earth?
Страница 51 - Taking off the shoes on the marble plat2 s 2 form in front, the visitor is admitted by a low door, on entering which the proudest head must needs do reverence. In the centre of the first chamber is the stone which was rolled away from the mouth of the sepulchre — a square block of marble, cut and polished ; and, though the Armenians have lately succeeded in establishing the genuineness of the stone in their chapel on Mount Zion, (the admission by the other monks, however, being always accompanied...
Страница 63 - Mussulman lords it over the place where the temple stood, and the Jews are not permitted to enter, they endeavour to insinuate their prayers through the crevices in the wall, that thus they may rise from the interior to the Throne of Grace.

Страница 205 - ... fair, with floors raised about three feet and a half above the level of the pavement, projecting a yard or so beyond the wall of the house into the street, and forming a broad bench, which, joining with that of the next tenement, extends the whole length of the bazaar. Both the bench and the floor are covered with neat mats or carpets, and the walls with deep shelves, divided into large compartments, in which the various kinds of merchandise are arranged with little attention to display. The...
Страница 142 - When Sir James Thornhill was painting the cupola of St. Paul's Cathedral, a gentleman of his acquaintance was one day with him on the scaffolding, which, though wide, was not railed ; he had just finished the head of one of the apostles, and running back, as is usual with painters, to observe the effect, had almost reached the extremity ; the gentleman, seeing his danger, and not having time for words, snatched up a large brush and smeared the face. Sir James ran hastily forward, crying out, " Bless...
Страница 26 - ... and he should no longer remain in her school. Dick was formally expelled ; and in a little time Dame Mabel's scholars became as peaceable as they had been before Obstinate Dick set so bad an example ; even romping Mary Green became a very good sort of girl. Dick, I am sorry to say, did not improve ; for poor boys as well as rich ones can never be respected or prosper in their several spheres of life, if they are wilful, violent, disobedient, or Sabbath breakers. The young Rebel's father, finding...
Страница 88 - Douglas, who supposes that the bird fills it with water as a supply in the midst of those dreary plains where it is accustomed to wander;* it likewise makes a further use of it in defending itself against the attacks of birds of prey; on such occasions it throws out the water with such violence as to baffle the pursuit of its enemy.
