Sayfa 262 - An Act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books, to the authors and proprietors of such copies during the times therein mentioned." And also to the act, entitled " An Act supplementary to an Act, entitled, " An Act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books, to the authors and proprietors of such copies during the time therein mentioned," and extending the benefits thereof to the arts of designing, engraving, and...
Sayfa 326 - I call upon the honor of your lordships to reverence the dignity of your ancestors and to maintain your own. I call upon the spirit and humanity of my country to vindicate the national character.
Sayfa 326 - That God and nature have put into our hands !" What ideas of God and nature that noble Lord may entertain, I know not; but I know that such detestable principles are equally abhorrent to religion and humanity. What! to attribute the sacred sanction of God and nature to the massacres of the Indian scalping-knife ! to the cannibal savage torturing, murdering, devouring, drinking the blood of his mangled victims!
Sayfa 326 - to use all the means which God and nature have put into our hands." I am astonished, I am shocked, to hear such principles confessed ; to hear them avowed in this House or in this country.
Sayfa 325 - Lordship contended that, besides its policy and necessity, the measure was also allowable on principle ; for that " it was perfectly justifiable to use all the means that God and nature put into our hands /"] I am astonished ! (exclaimed Lord Chatham, as he rose), shocked! to hear such principles confessed — to hear them avowed in this House, or in this country ; principles equally unconstitutional, inhuman, and unchristian ! My Lords, I did not intend to have...
Sayfa 327 - I again implore those holy prelates of our religion, to do away these iniquities from among us. Let them perform a lustration ; let them purify this house, and this country, from this sin. My lords, I am old and weak, and at present unable to say more ; but my feelings and indignation were too strong to have said less. I could not have slept this night in my bed, nor reposed my head on my pillow, without giving this vent to my eternal abhorrence of such preposterous and enormous principles.
Sayfa 326 - These abominable principles, and this more abominable avowal of them, demand the most decisive indignation. " I call upon that Right Reverend and this most Learned Bench to vindicate the religion of their God — to support the justice of their country. I call upon the Bishops to interpose the unsullied Sanctity of their lawn; upon the Judges to interpose the purity of their ermine, to save us from this pollution.
Sayfa 327 - From the tapestry that adorns these walls, the immortal ancestor of this noble lord frowns with indignation at the disgrace of his country. In vain did he defend the liberty, and establish the religion of Britain against the tyranny of Rome, if these worse than Popish cruelties and inquisitorial practices are endured among us. To send forth the merciless cannibal thirsting for blood ! against whom ? — your protestant brethren ! To lay waste their country, to desolate their dwellings, and extirpate...
Sayfa 343 - In enumerating, however, the advantages of a commercial nature which would assuredly spring from the -emancipation of South America, •we have not yet noticed the greatest, perhaps, of all, — the mightiest event, probably, in favour, of •the peaceful intercourse of nations, which the physical circumstances of the globe present to the enterprise of man...
Sayfa 327 - America, endeared to us by every tie that can sanctify humanity. I solemnly call upon your Lordships, and upon every order of men in the state, to stamp upon this infamous procedure, the indelible stigma of public abhorrence. More particularly, I call upon the holy prelates of our religion, to do away this iniquity ; let them perform a lustration to purify the country from this deep and deadly sin.
