The white spire of the meeting- house ascended out of the densest heap of vapor, as if that shadowy base were its only support: or, ...

Whether this defence would have gone to mitigate the fine of twenty pounds, is another matter. The Alderman's decision was given, much as the public generally pay for Champagne,—good or ...
