Halaman 100 - Man who hath been or shall be attainted of any Treason or Felony, or convicted of any Crime that is infamous, unless he shall have obtained a free Pardon, nor any Man who is under Outlawry or Excommunication, is or shall be qualified to serve on Juries or Inquests in any Court, or on any Occasion whatsoever.
Halaman 208 - I pulled out the spear at once from Mr. Kennedy's back, and cut out the jag with Mr. Kennedy's knife. Then Mr. Kennedy got his gun and snapped, but the gun would not go off. The blacks sneaked all along by the trees, and speared Mr. Kennedy again in the right leg, above the knee a little, and I got speared over the eye ; and the blacks were now throwing their spears all ways, never giving over, and shortly again speared Mr.
Halaman 1 - And thus still doing, thus he pass'd along. Duch. Alas ! poor Richard ! where rides he the while ? York. As in a theatre, the eyes of men, After a well-graced actor leaves the stage, Are idly bent on him that enters next, Thinking his prattle to be tedious : Even so, or with much more contempt, men's eyes Did scowl on Richard ; no man cried, God save him...
Halaman 276 - If the theory, by which it is sought to make persons cultivate lands in Australia in the natural order of their advantages, be altogether incapable of good, that which would seek to prevent the dispersion of the people, is only incapable of mischief, because it is utterly impossible to reduce it to practice. As well might it be attempted to confine the Arabs of the Desert within a circle traced upon their sands, as to confine the graziers or wool-growers of New South Wales within any bounds that...
Halaman 103 - Let a man be what he will when he comes here, he is soon as bad as the rest ; a man's heart is taken from him, and there is given to him the heart of a beast.
Halaman 243 - I should not, without extreme reluctance admit that nothing can be done — that with respect to them alone, the doctrines of Christianity must be inoperative, and the advantages of civilization incommunicable. I cannot acquiesce in the theory that they are incapable of improvement, and that their extinction, before the advance of the white settler is a necessity which it is impossible to control. I recommend them to your protection, and favourable consideration, with the greatest earnestness, but...
Halaman 204 - ... and there revealed to me, alone, seemed like a reward direct from heaven for perseverance, and as a compensation for the many sacrifices I had made, in order to solve the question as to the interior rivers of tropical Australia.
Halaman 208 - ... day; all along it was raining, and I now told him to leave the horses and come on without them, that the horses made too much track. Mr Kennedy was too weak, and would not leave the horses. We went on this day...
Halaman 70 - Providence, and the latter would certainly require more labour than can at present be obtained in the Colony, or immigration profitably supply. Independently of these powerful reasons for allowing dispersion, it is not to be disguised that the Government is unable to prevent it. No adequate measures could be resorted to for the general and permanent removal of intruders from waste lands, without incurring probably a greater expense than would be sufficient to extend a large share of the control and...
Halaman 557 - On the whole, as a place of punishment, the object is scarcely gained ; as a real system of reform it has failed, as perhaps would every other plan ; but as a means of making men outwardly honest, — of converting vagabonds, most useless in one hemisphere, into active citizens of another, and thus giving birth to a new and splendid country — a grand centre of civilization — it has succeeded to a degree perhaps unparalleled in history. 30th. — The Beagle sailed for Hobart Town in Van Diemen's...
