BROUGHAM. —WILLARD. 497
LORD BROUGHAM. 1779-1868.
Let the soldier be abroad if he will, he can do nothing in this age. There is another personage, a personage less imposing in the eyes of some, perhaps insignificant. The schoolmaster is abroad, and I trust to him, armed with his primer, against the soldier in full military array. Speech, Jan. 29,1828.
In my mind, he was guilty of no error, he was chargeable with no exaggeration, he was betrayed by his fancy into no metaphor, who once said, that all we see about us, kings, lords, and commons, the whole machinery of the state, all the apparatus of the system, and its varied workings, end in simply bringing twelve good men into a box. Present State of the Law, Feb. 7,1828.
Pursuit of Knowledge under Difficulties.1
EMMA WILLARD. 1787-1870.

1 The title given by Lord Brougham to a book published in 1830.
a Brougham delivered a very warm panegyric upon the Ex-Chanccllor, and expressed a hope that he would make a good end. Although to an expiring Chancellor Death was now armed with a new terror. — Campbell's Lives of the Chancellors, Vol. viii. p. 163.
Lord St. Leonards attributes this phrase to Sir Charles Wetlierell, who used it on the occasion referred to by Lord Campbell.
From Edmund CurlPs practice of issuing miserable catch-penny lives of every eminent person immediately after his decease, Arbuthnot wittily styled him "one of the new terrors of death." —Carruther's Life of Pope, 2d ed., p. 149.
JOSEPH RODMAN DRAKE. 1795-1820.
When Freedom from her mountain height
Unfurled her standard to the air,
And set the stars of glory there.
Flag of the free heart's hope and home!
By angel hands to valour given! Thy stars have lit the welkin dome,
And all thy hues were born in heaven. Forever float that standard sheet!
Where breathes the foe but falls before us, With Freedom's soil beneath our feet,
And Freedom's banner streaming o'er us?
The Ameriean Flag.
HARTLEY COLERIDGE. 1796-1849.
Her very frowns are fairer far
Than smiles of other maidens are. She is not fair.

And heaven is shining o'er us. March to the Battk-FUld.

Lo, where the stage, the poor, degraded stage,
Holds its warped mirror to a gaping age. Curiosity.
Through life's dark road his sordid way he wends,

Yes, social friend, I love thee well,
In learned doctors spite;
And lap me in delight. To my Ci'j.ir. FITZ-GREENE HALLECK. 1790-1867.
Strike — for your altars and your fires;
God, and your native land! Marco BozzarU.
Come to the bridal chamber, Death!
Come to the mother's, when she feels,
Come when the blessed seals
With banquet song, and dance, and wine;
Of agony are thine. Ibid.
But to the hero, when his sword
Has won the battle for the free,
The thanks of millions yet to be. Ibid.
One of the few, the immortal names,
That were not born to die. Ibid.
Such graves as his are pilgrim shrines,
The Delphian vales, the Palestines,
The Meccas of the mind. Burn$.
