97 ページ - It was already dusk as we ascended her steep gangway, and from that to darkness there is at this season but the interval of a breath. Dusk, too, were our thoughts at parting from Can Grande — the mighty, the vehement, the great fighter. How were we to miss his deep music here and at home ! With his assistance we had made a very respectable band ; now we were to be only a wandering drum and fife — the fife particularly shrill, and the drum particularly solemn.

12 ページ - The negro of the North is an ideal negro ; it is the negro refined by white culture, elevated by white blood, instructed even by white iniquity ; — the negro among negroes is a coarse, grinning, flat-footed, thick-skulled creature, ugly as Caliban, lazy as the laziest of brutes, chiefly ambitious to be of no use to any in the world. View him as you will, his stock in trade is small ; — he has but the tangible instincts of all creatures, — love of life, of ease, and of offspring. For all else,...
155 ページ - Roque', and the pretty daughter of the house took seat beside us. The streets around the Plaza proved quite impassable from the crowd, whose wild movements and wilder voices went nigh to scaring the well-trained horses. The little lady was accustomed, apparently, to direct every movement of her charioteer, and her orders were uttered in a voice high and sweet as a birdcall. " Dobla al derecho, Roque ! RoquS, dobla al derecho ! " Why did not Roqu6 go mad, and exclaim, — "Yes, Senorita, and to heaven...

78 ページ - Jacinto, and in good time, too, — for by this it had grown so hot, that we made a feeble rush for the volante, and lay back in it, panting for breath. Encountering a negress with a load of oranges on her head, we bought and ate the fruit with eagerness, though the oranges were bitter. The jolting over three miles of stone and* rut did not improve the condition of our aching heads. Arriving at San Antonio, we thankfully went to bed for the rest of the morning, and dreamed, only dreamed, that the...
236 ページ - Moral justice dissents from the habitual sneer, denunciation, and malediction, which have become consecrated forms of piety in speaking of the South.
3 ページ - I do not know why all celebrated people who write books of travels begin by describing their days of sea-sickness. Dickens, George Combe, Fanny Kemble, Mrs. Stowe, Miss Bremer, and many others, have opened in like manner their valuable remarks on foreign countries. While intending to avail myself of their privilege and example, I would nevertheless suggest, for those who may come after me, that the subject of sea-sickness should be embalmed in science, and enshrined in the crypt of some modern encyclopaedia,...
2 ページ - Winter, rude tyrant, with all our precious hostages in his grasp. Soon the swift motion lulls our brains into the accustomed muddle ; we seem to be dragged along like a miserable thread pulled through the eye of an everlasting needle, — through and through, and never through, — while here and there, like painful knots, the depots stop us, the poor thread is arrested for a minute, and then the pulling begins again. Or, in another dream, we are like fugitives threading the gauntlet of the grim...
