Strona 315 - English rabbit, and even retreated from the attacks of the gray rabbit ; but they now stood their ground, and engaged in fierce combats with the other prisoners confined with them, and generally came off victorious. They stamped with their feet, used their teeth and claws to a fearful purpose, and in the fight, tore off patches of skin, and mutilated the ears of their former persecutors, till they were left in undisturbed possession of the premises !

Strona 120 - Tombeckbee, is situated on a bluff of the same, about one hundred feet in height; but the eocene appears a short distance north of it, separated from the secondary by a strip of alluvial soil. Here, however, the two upper strata only are visible, the superior bed of limestone being but a few feet in thickness, whilst at Claiborne the corresponding one is about forty-five feet thick. The arenaceous stratum is precisely similar to that of Claiborne, but the fossils are not so well preserved, and are...

Here the upper bed is characterized by Scutella Lyelli (Conrad), the stratum being about three feet in thickness, with a matrix of angular quartzose sand, tinged by oxide of iron. Nearly the whole country in the vicinity of Claiborne is secondary, the eocene having been traced only about one mile east of the village, in the banks of a small creek. The ridge dividing the waters...
Strona 273 - In a few cases, in which the ridge of a building lay in a northerly and southerly position, the eastern slope of roof was observed to be removed, or at least stripped of its shingles, while the western slope remained entire. Many buildings were likewise observed with holes in their roofs, whether shingled or tiled, but otherwise not much damaged, unless by the demolition of windows. These appearances clearly demonstrated the strong upward tendency of the forces by which they were produced, while...
