עמוד 221 - He was then young, and with much labour climbed to the naked summit of the sierra, from which, at a height of ten or twelve thousand feet, he looked over an immense plain extending to Yucatan and the Gulf of Mexico, and saw at a great distance a large city spread over a great space, and with turrets white and glittering in the sun.
עמוד 306 - When any particular country imposes import duties upon the productions of other countries, while those other countries continue to receive her products duty free, then such particular country draws to herself a larger proportion of the precious metals, maintains a higher range of general prices than her neighbours, and obtains in exchange for the produce of a given quantity of her labour, the produce of a greater quantity of foreign labour.
עמוד 205 - The varieties of man seem to act on each other in the same way as different species of animals — the stronger always extirpating the weaker.
עמוד 226 - The mine worked by England is the general market of the world : the miners are those who produce those commodities by the exportation of which the precious metals are obtained, and the amount of the precious metals, which by a given exertion of labour, and advance of capital, they can obtain, must afford the scale by which the remuneration of all other producers is calculated.

עמוד 18 - 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...
עמוד 187 - After all, that, which has struck us in contemplating the Indians with the most astonishment and admiration, is the invisible but universal energy of the operation and influence of an inexplicable law, which has, where it operates, a more certain and controlling power, than all the municipal and written laws of the whites united.
עמוד 205 - Besides these several evident causes of destruction, there appears to be some more mysterious agency generally at work. Wherever the European has trod, death seems to pursue the aboriginal. We may look to the wide extent of the Americas, Polynesia, the Cape of Good Hope, and Australia, and we find the same result, Nor is it the white man alone that thus acts the destroyer...
עמוד 154 - Now their cleared grounds in all their villages (which are situate in the fruitfullest places of the land) \ shall be inhabited by us, whereas heretofore the grubbing of woods was the greatest labour."72 69.
