Seite 43 - The cause being entertained in an English Court, it must be adjudicated according to the principles of English law applicable to such a case, but the only principle applicable to such a case by the law of England is that the validity of...
Seite 35 - Island ; but all its leading provisions manifestly require, that justice shall be administered according to it, and it alone. As to Criminal law, its language is too explicit to admit of doubt. It requires that the Court shall hear and determine indictments and offences, and give judgment thereupon, and award execution thereof, and shall in all respects, administer Criminal justice in such or the like manner and form, or as nearly as the condition and circumstances of the place and the persons will...
Seite 49 - ... and circumstances of the place and the persons will admit of, as in the courts of oyer and terminer, in that part of Great Britain called England, and to hear and determine and award judgment and execution of all treasons, murders, felonies, forgeries, &c.
Seite 135 - Wherever we find people who have continued for ages in a hot, humid district, they are deep black, but to this apparent law there are exceptions, caused by the migrations of both tribes and individuals ; the Makololo, for instance, among the tribes of the humid central basin, appear of a sickly sallow hue when compared with the aboriginal inhabitants ; the...
Seite 39 - Abdullah's ease, observed that "in the general impression, the Charter seerm* to have intended to give a certain degree of protection and indulgence to the various nations resorting here, not very clearly defined, yet perhaps easily enough applied in particular cases, but not, generally, to sanction or recognise their law
Seite 267 - ... washed away by the flood ; the bones were all carefully collected and taken on board. From the position in which these bones were found, agreeing with the description given me by Mr. Carron, I feel confident they are the remains of Wall and Niblet. I was rather surprised to find some cabbage-palm trees growing in the vicinity of the camp ; the tops are very nutritious, and would be very desirable for men in a starving state, had they been aware of it.
Seite 135 - With every disposition to pay due deference to the opinions of those who have made ethnology their special study, I have felt myself unable to believe that the exaggerated features usually put forth as those of the typical negro, characterize the majority of any nation of south central Africa. The monuments of the ancient Egyptians seem to me to embody the ideal of the inhabitants of Londa, better than the figures of any work of ethnology I have met with.
Seite 358 - ... and other desirable secretions of the species. The system adopted to attain this end is as simple as it is efficacious. In the harvest seasons the natives are seen in little family groups on the side of every hill, when the weather is dry, engaged in gathering the tea leaves. They do not seem so particular, as I imagined they would have been, in this operation, but strip the leaves off rapidly and promiscuously, and throw them all into round baskets made for the purpose out of split bamboo or...
Seite 33 - It is now become my painful duty to state that it has so continued to be governed without fixed laws ; for upon the hour of my arrival on this Island, there were not any Civil or Criminal laws then in existence, and there are not even now any Municipal, Criminal, or Civil laws in force on this Island. The law of nature is the only law declaring crimes and respecting property, which, to my knowledge, at this day, exists at Prince of Wales...
Seite 135 - The dark color, thick lips, heads elongated backward and upward and covered with wool, flat noses, with other negro peculiarities, are general ; but, while these characteristics place them in the true negro family, the reader would imbibe a wrong idea if he supposed that all these features combined are often met with in one individual. All have a certain thickness and prominence of lip, but many are met with in every village in whom thickness and projection are not more marked than in Europeans....
