Side 176 - Yet I do not give up the country. I see her in a swoon, but she is not dead. Though in her tomb she lies helpless and motionless, still there is on her lips a spirit of life, and on her cheek a glow of beauty Thou art not conquered; beauty's ensign yet Is crimson in thy lips and in thy cheeks, And death's pale flag is not advanced there.

Side 491 - That this house will, early in the next session of parliament, take into its most serious consideration the state of the laws affecting his Majesty's Roman Catholic subjects in Great Britain and Ireland ; with a view to such a final -and conciliatory adjustment, "as may be conducive to the peace and strength of the united kingdom ; to the stability of the protestant establishment ; and to the general satisfaction and concord of all classes of his Majesty's subjects.
