第118页 - Towns may, by consent of a majority of the legal voters present at a legal meeting, in each of said Towns respectively, called for that purpose, and held before the first day of August, in the year one thousand eight hundred and forty, and every tenth year thereafter, form themselves into a Representative District, to continue for the term of ten years ; and such District shall have all the rights, in regard to representation, which would belong to a Town containing the same number of inhabitants.
第30页 - We first saw some broken and scattered boxes ; then a cart, the two oxen of which were lying dead, as if they had fallen asleep, their yokes still on them ; a little to the right, one or two horses were seen. We then came to a small enclosure, made by felling trees in such a manner as to form a triangular breastwork for defence. Within the triangle, along the north and west faces of it, were about thirty bodies, mostly mere skeletons, although much of the clothing was left upon them.

第155页 - Our view of the low main shore was confined to five miles in an easterly direction, after which it appeared to turn off greatly to the right. We could, therefore, scarcely doubt our having arrived at that large gulf uniformly described by the Esquimaux as containing many islands, and with numerous indentations stretching down to the southward, till it approaches within 40 miles of Repulse and Wager Bays.
第30页 - It was during a cessation of the fire that the little band still remaining, about thirty in number, threw up the triangular breastwork, which from the haste with which it was constructed, was necessarily defective, and could not protect the men in the second attack. We had with us many of the personal friends of the officers of Major Dade's command, and it is gratifying to be able to state that every officer was identified by undoubted evidence.
第117页 - The several Senatorial Districts now existing, shall be permanent. The Senate shall consist of forty members ; and in the year one thousand eight hundred and forty, and every tenth year thereafter, the Governor and Council shall assign the number of Senators to be chosen in each district, according to the number of inhabitants in the same.
