Stran 2 - walking according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that worketh in the children of disobedience :
Stran 325 - He went off with that as my last solemn warning thrown into his ears. And yet ! to suffer that army to be cut to pieces — hacked, butchered, tomahawked — by a surprise — the very thing I guarded him against! O God, O God, he's worse than a murderer! How can he answer it to his country! The blood of the slain is upon him — the curse of widows and orphans — the curse of Heaven!
Stran 400 - That in the event of Great Britain attempting to force unjust laws upon us by the strength of arms, our cause we leave to heaven and our rifles.
Stran 420 - The course of study as laid down included the English, Latin, and Greek languages, mathematics, rhetoric, logic, geography, natural, and moral philosophy. Rev. Lindley, a Princeton graduate, became the faculty and advertisements were made that the new school was in readiness. On "registration day" three young men applied for admission — John Perkins, Brewster Higley, and Joel Abbott.

Stran 405 - Crown and the dignity of the British Empire. But as the love of Liberty, and attachment to the real interests and just rights of America outweigh every other consideration, we resolve that we will exert every power within us for the defence of American liberty, and for the support of her just rights and privileges; not in any precipitate, riotous, or tumultuous manner, but when regularly called forth by the unanimous voice of our countrymen.
Stran 465 - His delicately-cut features, which exhibited great firmness of character and the powers of intense mental concentration, readily brightened with the most winning of smiles.
Stran 151 - For a litter of kittens or a brood of chickens there are often as many different owners as there are individual animals. In purchasing a hen with her brood one frequently has to deal for it with several children. Thus, while the principle of community of goods prevails in the State, the rights of property are acknowledged among the members of the family.
Stran 343 - America, and we have monuments which are worthy of preservation and which can add to our knowledge of our American ancestors, as well as of our Indian predecessors. Even in Wisconsin something may be obtained from such sources. The most interesting of our monumental remains are, of course, the architectural. Everybody is familiar with the log cabin, though something might yet be gathered as to the sites selected for them, and minor differences in construction. Less familiar is the cropping out of...
Stran 91 - Neither the color nor the other qualities of wampom are a matter of indifference, but have an immediate reference to those things which they are meant to confirm. The brown or deep violet, called black by the Indians, always means something of severe or doubtful import ; but the white is the color of peace. Thus, if a string or belt of wampom is intended to confirm a warning against evil, or an earnest reproof, it is delivered in black.
