Sayfa 200 - ... action does not seem probable, there is no impediment to one's seeing Sinai as it was when Moses there halted his people. And I did so see Sinai, during the memorable Sunday we spent there. Turning my back on the convent, and forgetting the wretched superstitions of the monks, I looked abroad that day with the eyes of a disciple of Moses, who had followed his footsteps from Memphis hither ; and I saw more than by many years' reading of the Pentateuch at home.
Sayfa 293 - The Saturday Review. Journal of the Waterloo Campaign : Kept throughout the Campaign of 1815. By General Cavalie Mercer, Commanding the 9th Brigade Royal Artillery. 2 vols. post 8vo, 21s. ' ' No actor in the terrible scene ushered in by the following day has ever painted it in more vivid colours than the officer of artillery who led his troop into the very heart of the carnage, and escaped to write a book more real, more lifelike, more enthralling, than any tale of war it has ever been our lot to...

Sayfa 293 - No actor in the terrible scene ushered in by the following day has ever painted it in more vivid colours than the officer of artillery who led his troop into the very heart of the carnage, and escaped to write a book more real, more lifelike, more...
Sayfa 293 - SECOND EDITION, revised throughout by the Author, and containing important additions on the influence of Railways and Telegraphs on War, and on the Effects which the changes in Weapons may be expected to produce in Tactics.
Sayfa 200 - I looked abroad that day with the eyes of a disciple of Moses, who had followed his footsteps from Memphis hither; and I saw more than by many years' reading of the Pentateuch at home. How differently the Pentateuch here reads, from the same worn old Bible which one has handled for five-and-twenty years, I could not have imagined. The light from Egypt and Arabia shining into it illuminates unthought-of places, and gives a new and most fresh coloring to the whole. I little thought ever to have seen...
Sayfa 258 - ... the British Indian Extension, the China Submarine, and the British Australian Telegraph Cables now in course of manufacture will next be laid in succession. From Madras a cable will be carried to Singapore, touching at Penang. From Singapore one line will proceed north to Hong Kong, Amory, and Shanghai, and another south to Batavia and through Java to Port Darwin at the north of Australia. Thence a coast line will be taken round the north side of the Australian continent to Burketown, whence...
Sayfa 200 - Arabia shining into it illuminates unthought-of places, and gives a new and most fresh colouring to the whole. I little thought ever to have seen so much of Moses as I did this day, within sight of Arab tents, like those in which he and Zipporah and their children lived when first here with Jethro's flocks ; within sight of the same peaks which were landmarks to the wandering tribes ; and of the same wadees where they rested, and surrounded by the very same mountain springs whence they brought water...
Sayfa 124 - To men with whom the external ordinances of religion, the prostration in public, the ablutions and the turning to the sun, are all in all, Christian privacy is altogether unaccountable ; and the shrewd and damaging implication of the Muhammedan donkey-boy at Cairo, is echoed in spirit by many varieties of Indian orthodoxy. " Take my donkey, master, him very good donkey, sir. Try him, master, him Christian donkey, he never go down on his knees." " Sorabjee is very contemptuous when I ask him if he...
