Stran 107 - Abolitionism was thirty years ago or temperance is now, that clergymen can with impunity appear. Considering that the absence of State interference in matters of religion is one of the most striking differences between all the European countries on the one hand and the United States on the other, the European reader may naturally expect some further remarks on the practical results of this divergence.

Stran 61 - If we define a university as a place where teaching of a high order, teaching which puts a man abreast of the fullest and most exact knowledge of the time, is given in a range of subjects covering all the great departments of intellectual life, not more than twelve, and possibly only eight or nine, of the American institutions would fall within the definition.
