Stranica 330 - That religion or the duty which we owe to our Creator, and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence ; and, therefore, all men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of conscience ; and that it is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love and charity towards each other.
Stranica 295 - The property which every man has in his own labor, as it is the original foundation of all other property, so it is the most sacred and inviolable.
Stranica 85 - ... any interest in or concerning them, or upon any agreement that is not to be performed within the space of one year from the making thereof, unless the agreement upon which such action shall be brought, or some memorandum or note thereof, shall be in writing and signed by the party to be charged therewith...
Stranica 278 - When the death of one is caused by the wrongful act or omission of another, the personal representatives of the former may maintain an action therefor against the latter, if the former might have maintained an action, had he lived, against the latter for an injury for the same act or omission.

Stranica 155 - ... from, through or under whom such a party or interested person derives his interest or title, by assignment or otherwise, shall not be examined as a •witness, in his own behalf...
Stranica 251 - It is not necessary that the expectation of advantage or benefit should be always capable of pecuniary estimation, for a parent has an insurable interest in the life of his child, and a child in the life of his parent, a husband in the life of his wife, and a wife in the life of her husband. The natural affection in cases of this kind is considered more powerful — as operating more efficaciously — to protect the life of the insured than any other consideration.
Stranica 209 - In every tort there may be aggravating circumstances, either in the act or the intention ; and in that event the jury may give additional damages, either to deter the wrong-doer from repeating the trespass, or as compensation for the wounded feelings of the plaintiff.
