The "Sea to Sea" Grant%.--Concerning the interior of our continent absolutely nothing was known.
p. 31: The interpretation of land-holding and clans follows my own research which is influenced by Niida Noboru, Kat=o Shigeru and other Japanese scholars, as well as by G. Haloun.--Concerning the origin of family names see preliminarily Yang Hsi-mei; much further research is still necessary.
"Peterday," said the Sergeant, beginning to stir his tea faster than ever, and with his eyes still fixed, "consequent upon disparaging remarks having been passed by one Grimes,--our landlord,--concerning them as should not be mentioned in a inn parlour--or anywhere else--by such as said Grimes,--I was compelled to pour--a tankard of beer--over said Grimes, our landlord,--this arternoon, Peterday, at exactly--twelve and a half minutes past six, by my watch,--which done,--I ran our landlord--out into the road, Peterday, say--half a minute later, which would make it precisely thirteen minutes after the hour.

Is it not intolerable to take up three bulky pamphlets against a recent Sect, denounced as most dangerous, and which we all know to be most powerful and of rapid increase, and to find little more than a weak declamatory abuse of certain metaphysical dogmas concerning free will, or free will forfeited, 'de libero vel servo arbitrio'--of grace, predestination, and the like;--dogmas on which, according to Milton, God and the Logos conversed, as soon as man was in existence, they in heaven, and Adam in paradise, and the devils in hell;--dogmas common to all religions, and to all ages and sects of the Christian religion;--concerning which Brahmin disputes with Brahmin, Mahometan with Mahometan, and Priestley with Price;--and all this to be laid on the shoulders of the Methodists collectively: though it is a notorious fact, that a radical difference on this abstruse subject is the ground of the schism between the Whitfieldite and Wesleyan Methodists; and that the latter coincide in opinion with Erasmus and Arminius, by which latter name they distinguish themselves; and the former with Luther, Calvin, and their great guide, St. Augustine?
"Well then, sir, take that chair, and I will get on like a house on fire; but if you please, don't put me off my clew, sir.--Concerning that picture and my courtship, the most serious epoch of my life, there is a leetle bit of a story which I would like to be a beacon to others; and if your honour is still a bachelor, and not yet stranded on the shoals of matrimony, it may be Werbum Sapienti, as O'Toole, the Irish schoolmaster, used to observe, when in the act of applying the birch to the booby's back.
The beneficence, benevolence, and sublime virtue which issues in eloquent talk reported in the Newspapers, with the subscription of five pounds, and the feeling that one is a good citizen and ornament to society,--concerning this, there were a great many unexpected remarks to be made; but let this one, for the present occasion, suffice:-- My sublime benevolent friends, don't you perceive, for one thing, that here is a shockingly unfruitful investment for your capital of Benevolence; precisely the worst, indeed, which human ingenuity could select for you? "
Evidence seems to point towards the importance of transportation systems rather than of government-sponsored or operated irrigation systems.--Concerning steel, we follow Yang K'uan; a special study by J. Needham is under preparation.
No, 'twas a fatal Truth: Alcippus, hadst thou seen her, whilst the Priest Was giving thee to fair Erminia, What languishment appear'd upon her Eyes, Which never were remov'd from thy lov'd Face, Through which her melting Soul in drops distill'd, As if she meant to wash away thy Sin, In giving up that Right belong'd to her, Thou hadst without my aid found out this truth: A sweet composure dwelt upon her looks, Like Infants who are smiling whilst they die; Nor knew she that she wept, so unconcern'd And freely did her Soul a passage find; Whilst I transported had almost forgot The Reverence due t'her sacred self and Place, And every moment ready was to kneel, And with my lips gather the precious drops, And rob the Holy Temple of a Relick, Fit only there t'inhabit.
Death was denounced; that frightful sound Which even the best can hardly bear, He took the summons void of fear; And unconcern'dly cast his eyes around; As if to find and dare the grisly challenger.
"Perhaps," the spider seemed unconcerned. "
Her eyes swept carelessly over the Van Kamps, and unconcernedly passed on to the rest of the landscape.
I saw an item in the paper"--he strove to speak unconcernedly--"a Marconigram--that a certain Russian prince's private yacht--the Nevski--had damaged her propeller, or some other part of her gear, and was being towed into this harbor for emergency repairs."
The zamorin eyed him steadfastly the whole time, hoping to be enabled to judge of the truth or falsehood of his assertion by his countenance; and concluded, from the unconcernedness of his looks, the eloquence of his words, and the firm gravity of his whole demeanour, that no deceit could lurk under such appearances of sincerity, that the Moors had accused him maliciously, and had imposed on his ministers.
when, instead of such particulars, they were presented only with a Journal of Poetical Travels, with Remarks on the present picture of the country compared with the landskips landscapes drawn by Classic Authors, and others the like unconcerning parts of knowledge!

1.--Concerning the number of sounds pertaining to the vowel a, or to certain other particular letters, and consequently in regard to the whole number of the sounds which constitute the oral elements of the English language, our educational literati,--the grammarians, orthoepists sic--KTH, orthographers, elocutionists, phonographers, and lexicographers,--are found to have entertained and inculcated a great variety of opinions.
Some suppose that they are innate, appealing to consciousness,--concerning which there can be no dispute or argument.
5.--Concerning his fifth sound of a, Wells cites authorities thus: "Walker, Webster, Sheridan, Fulton and Knight, Kenrick, Jones, and Nares, give a in care the long sound of a, as in late.
7.--Concerning one of the forms of expression which Murray approves and prefers, among his corrections above, the learned doctors Lowth and Campbell appear to have formed very different opinions.
LOVE, adulterous.--Concerning the opposition of adulterous love to conjugial love, 423-443.
This statement has proved true enough in the long run: when Shelley wrote, it was only prospectively or potentially true, for the death of Keats excited no immediate widespread concern in England.
In the end, before many years are out, this must eventually change war, transit, lighting, building, and every sort of manufacture, even agriculture, every material human concern----' Then Holsten stopped short.
