Are they Old World wines, like those from traditional regions in Bordeaux, Burgundy or Italy, or do you enjoy bright, fruity New World wines from California or Australia? The good sense of the poet we have quoted, which is equal to his brilliancy of fancy, has, indeed, pointed out this distinction; and in the following passage, while he deprecates what we do not contend for, he admits the value of the larch in such rude scenes as we now treat of:--- ``To those,'' says Wordsworth, ``who plant for profit, and are thrusting every other tree out of the way to make room for their favourite, the larch, I would utter, first, a regret that they should have selected these lovely vales for their vegetable manufactory, when there is so much barren and irreclaimable land in the neighbouring moors, and in other parts of the island, which might have been had for this purpose at a far cheaper rate.

Entrepreneurial from a young age (his first job was washing dishes at Mile High Stadium when he was 12), his parents ensured he had a strong work ethic. He therefore prevailed upon his private secretary, a young man of taste and accomplishments, to bestow an hour or two on Edward's education while at Brerewood Lodge, and left his uncle answerable for his improvement in literature while an inmate at the Hall. After remarking that cavalry ought to have the same advantage over irregular infantry, which veteran infantry possess over cavalry, and that particularly in the case of Highlanders, whom they encounter with their own weapon, the broadsword, and who neither formed platoons, nor had bayonets, or any other long weapon, to withstand a charge ---after noticing, moreover, that if it were too sanguine to expect a victory, Brigadier Fowke, who commanded two regiments of cavalry, might, at least, have made a leisurely and regular retreat, though he had advanced within a musket-shot of his enemy, before a column that could not turn out five mounted horsemen, he proceeds thus :--- ``Before the rebels came within sight of the King's forces, before they came within three miles' distance of them, orders were issued to the dragoons to wheel, which they immediately did with the greatest order and regularity imaginable.

They could only conjecture that he had retired during the confusion occasioned by the detention of Gaston. ``Seek not for him,'' said the Lady Emma, who had now in some degree recovered her composure; ``he will not be found of mortal, unless at his own season.'' The Baron, convinced from this answer that her terror had, for the time, somewhat disturbed her reason, forbore to question her; and Matilda and Eleanor, to forlorn a message had been despatched with the result of this strange adventure, arriving, they took the Lady Emma between them, and all in a body returned to the castle.

He entered the hovel, which seemed to be intended for what is called, in the pastoral counties of Scotland, a smearing-house; and in its obscurity Edward could only at first discern a sort of red bundle; for those who had stripped the wounded man of his arms, and part of his clothes, had left him the dragoon-cloak in which he was enveloped. ``For the love of God,'' said the wounded man, as he heard Waverley's step, ``give me a single drop of water!'' ``You shall have it,'' answered Waverley, at the same time raising him in his arms, bearing him to the door of the hut, and giving him some drink from his flask. ``I should know that voice,'' said the man; but looking on Waverley's dress with a bewildered look---``no, this is not the young squire?'' This was the common phrase by which Edward was distinguished on the estate of Waverley-Honour, and the sound now thrilled to his heart with the thousand recollections which the well-known accents of his native country had already contributed to awaken. ``Houghton!'' he said, gazing on the ghastly features which death was fast disfiguring, ``can this be you?'' ``I never thought to hear an English voice again,'' said the wounded man; ``they left me to live or die here as I could, when they found I would say nothing about the strength of the regiment.
