Seite 332 - Zoo is het, dat Wij, den Raad van State gehoord, en met gemeen overleg der Staten-Generaal, hebben goedgevonden en verstaan, gelijk Wij goedvinden en verstaan bij deze: Art.
Seite 332 - Allen, die deze zullen zien of hooren lezen, salut! doen te weten; Alzoo Wij in overweging genomen hebben, dat het noodzakelijk is, de onteigening ten algemeenen nutte, in overeenstemming met art.
Seite 229 - ... the first race cannot have had two arms, because men have always been fighting, and as two arms are a great advantage in fighting, one-armed and half-armed people would immediately have been killed off the earth; they never could have attained any numbers. A diffused deficiency in a warlike power is the best attainable evidence that the pre-historic men did not possess that power.
Seite 341 - (Mahabharata), "Proverbial Wisdom " from the Shlokas of the Hitopadesa, and other Oriental Poems. BY EDWIN ARNOLD, CSI, Author of "The Light of Asia.
Seite 236 - It is inconceivable," he says, " that anything but the want of certainty on that point could have long prevented the acknowledgment of kinship through males ; and in such cases we shall be able to conclude that such certainty has formerly been wanting— that more or less promiscuous intercourse between the sexes has formerly prevailed. The connection between these two things— uncertain paternity and kinship through females only, seems so necessary — that of cause and effect — that we may confidently...
Seite 332 - Het recht om geschriften, plaat-, kaart-, muziek-, tooneelwerken en mondelinge voordrachten door den druk gemeen te maken, alsmede om dramatisch-muzikale werken en tooneelwerken in het openbaar uit- of op te voeren, komt uitsluitend den auteur en zijnen rechtverkrijgenden toe.
Seite 229 - The elementary group is the Family, connected by common subjection to the highest male ascendant. The aggregation of Families forms the Gens or House. The aggregation of Houses makes the Tribe. The aggregation of Tribes constitutes the Commonwealth. Are we at liberty to follow these indications, and to lay down that the commonwealth is a collection of persons united by common descent from the progenitor of an original family? Of this we may at least be certain, that all ancient societies regarded...
Seite 235 - These are processes, customs, opinions, and so forth, which have been carried on by force of habit into a new state of society different from that in which they had their original home, and they thus remain as proofs and examples of an older condition of culture out of which a newer has been evolved.
Seite 229 - Of this we may at least be certain, that all ancient societies regarded themselves as having proceeded from one original stock, and even laboured under an incapacity for comprehending any reason except this for their holding together in political union. The history of political ideas begins, in fact, with the assumption that kinship in blood is the sole possible ground of community in political functions...
Seite 243 - Some nations, where the dignity is hereditary, limit the succession to the female line. On the death of a chief, his sister's son sometimes succeeds him in preference to his own son; and if he happens to have no sister, the nearest female relation assumes the dignity. This accounts for a woman being at the head of the Winnebago nation, which, before I was acquainted with their laws, appeared strange to me.
