The situation adjusted itself by eye. Bessie had won, and Mrs. Beeton returned to cook muffins and make scathing remarks about models, hussies, trollops, and the like, to her husband.
Положение сразу определилось: верх одержала Бесси, и миссис Битон молча ушла поджаривать и готовить тартинки, сопровождая это занятие едкими замечаниями насчет всяких натурщиц, потаскушек, шлюх и тому подобных особ.

It is true also that I did lay my hands upon this jack- fool of a brother Ambrose, though, as you can see, I did him little scathe.
Правда и то, что я поднял руку на этого шута горохового брата Амвросия, но, как вы сами видите, особого ущерба ему не причинил.

I am poor; for I find that, when I have paid my father's debts, all the patrimony remaining to me will be this crumbling grange, the row of scathed firs behind, and the patch of moorish soil, with the yew-trees and holly-bushes in front.
Я беден; когда я уплачу долги отца, мне останется в наследство лишь этот старый хутор, ряд искалеченных елей позади него, а перед ним - клочок болотистой земли с кустами остролиста.

I was in my own room as usual- just myself, without obvious change: nothing had smitten me, or scathed me, or maimed me.
Я сидела в своей комнате, как обычно, такая же, как и была, без всякой видимой перемены. Я не была замарана, оскорблена, унижена.

Ben Cruachan, superior in magnitude, and seeming the very citadel of the Genius of the Region, rose high above the others, showing his glimmering and scathed peak to the distance of many miles.
Самая высокая вершина, Бен Круахан, словно твердыня горного духа, высилась над цепью гор, и ее сверкающий белизной конус был виден на много миль вокруг.
