BULLIONS, Peter, clergyman, born in Moss Side, Scotland, in December, 1791; died in Troy, New York, 13 February, 1864. He received an excellent early education, and assisted his parents on the farm. In 1810 he entered the University of Edinburgh, supporting himself during his three years' course by teaching. He then studied theology under Prof. Paxton, and late in 1817 came to the United States. In March, 1818, he was ordained pastor at Argyle, New York, where he remained until 1824, when ill health compelled his resignation. He then became professor of languages in the Albany academy, and continued as such until 1848. From 1832 till 1852 he was pastor of the United Presbyterian congregation in Troy, New York, and again from 1853 until his death, having in the meanwhile spent some time in travel. He published an extensive series of classical textbooks, which came into use very extensively. Among them are "Principles of English Grammar" (New York, 1834); "Analytical and Practical English Grammar" (1850); "Cicero's Select Orations" (1851);" Principles of Greek Grammar" (1840); "Principles of Latin Grammar" (1853); "Latin Exercises " (1855); "Latin and English Dictionary" (1862). He also published a "Life of Alexander Bullions."
