You needn't be afraid, there's absolutely no one here, and they wouldn't hear at Skvoreshniki now if we fired a cannon here.
Да не бойтесь, тут ровно нет никого, и в Скворешниках теперь, хоть из пушек отсюдова пали, не услышат.

Kolya held the cannon in his hand so that all could see and admire it. Ilusha raised himself, and, with his right arm still round the dog, he gazed enchanted at the toy.
Пушечку Коля держал в руке пред всеми, так что все могли видеть и наслаждаться, Илюша приподнялся и, продолжая правою рукой обнимать Перезвона, с восхищением разглядывал игрушку.

—But then, Ranald, my trusty comrade, you have no cannon, I dare to aver, and I do not see that any of these fellows have muskets either.
Но, Раналд, верный товарищ мой, у тебя, насколько я могу судить, нет пушки, да и мушкетов я что-то не вижу у этих молодцов.

" And what will be the joy and amazement of Natasha," he thought, as he paced along the narrow lane,...when she suddenly reads in the Invalid a description of how I was the first to climb upon the cannon, and that I have received the George!
"Каково будет удивление и радость Наташи, - думал он, шагая на своих стоптанных сапогах по узенькому переулочку, - когда она вдруг прочтет в "Инвалиде" описание, как я первый влез на пушку и получил Георгия.

Everybody was excited, except the fat boy, and he slept as soundly as if the roaring of cannon were his ordinary lullaby.
Все были взволнованы, кроме жирного парня; он же спал сладким сном, словно рев пушек с детства заменял ему колыбельную.

The same thunder of cannon and exchange of rifleshots was borne from the bastions, and the same fires flashed against the dark heavens.
С бастионов доносился тот же грохот орудий и ружейной перепалки, и те же огни вспыхивали на черном небе.

Over that again were a pair of flags; beneath the last button of his coat were a couple of cannon; and the whole formed an expressive and undoubted likeness of the Marquis of Granby of glorious memory.
Еще выше помещались два флага; ниже последней пуговицы на его фраке помещались две пушки; а все вместе являлось выразительным и не вызывающим сомнений портретом славной памяти маркиза Гренби.
