עמוד 137 - That which her slender waist confined Shall now my joyful temples bind : Xo monarch but would give his crown His arms might do what this has done." That Mr Palgrave finds a charm in bald and mawkish simplicity, there is evidence
עמוד 17 - N"o longer mourn for me when I am dead Than ye shall hear the surly sullen bell Give -warning to the world that I am fled." * How strange sound these words of his, with that bell for commentary!

עמוד 26 - Let's talk of graves, of worms, and epitaphs; Make dust our paper, and with rainy eyes Write sorrow on the bosom of the earth.
עמוד 127 - this queer personification with its balance. Afterwards Napoleon is exhorted, not too grammatically, to commit suicide without further delay:— " Unless, like he of Babylon, All sense is with thy sceptre gone, Life will not long confine That spirit poured so widely forth— So long obeyed—so little worth
