Page 313 - Each observer is requested to prepare, at his earliest convenience, a complete list of the birds known to occur in the vicinity of his Station, and to indicate (by the abbreviations enclosed in parentheses) to which of the following five categories each species pertains: — 1.
Page 441 - ... in morals and intellect, must be an admitted fact in all schemes of regenerative policy. The hereditary taint due to the primeval barbarism of our race, and maintained by later influences, will have to be bred out of it before our descendants can rise to the position of free members of an intelligent society; and I may add that the most likely nest at the present time, for self-reliant natures, is to be found in states founded and maintained by emigrants.
Page 441 - I believe that it arises very much from the fact that hitherto we have tried to teach animals, rather than to learn from them— to convey our ideas to them, rather than to devise any language, or code of signals, by means of which they might communicate theirs to us.

Page 708 - But in spring, autumn, and winter, or, in exceptional years, through much of the summer, it seems probable that the river was confined to a channel, being of insufficient volume to cover its flood-plain. At such time this plain was the site of human habitations and industry.
