Stran 335 - Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever; that considering numbers, nature and natural means only, a revolution of the wheel of fortune, an exchange of situation is among possible events; that it may become probable by supernatural interferencel The Almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in such a contest.

Stran 391 - A Description of Active and Extinct Volcanoes, of Earthquakes, and of Thermal Springs ; with remarks on...
Stran 284 - It is hardly possible to take one of the soles sold by the shoemakers out of paper or into the hand, without exciting it to such a degree as to open the leaves of an electrometer one or more inches; or if it be unelectrified, the slightest passage over the hand or face, the clothes, or almost any other substance gives it an electric state. Some of the gutta percha is sold in very thin sheets, resembling in general appearance oiled silk ; and if a strip of this be drawn through the fingers, it is...
Stran 278 - Ficus elastica (viz., to make oblique incisions in the bark, placing bamboos to receive the sap which runs out freely), than to kill the goose in the manner they are at present doing.

Stran 393 - THE JOURNAL OF AGRICULTURE, and the TRANSACTIONS of the HIGHLAND and AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY of SCOTLAND. Published Quarterly.
Stran 341 - Orchidaceae, of singular and beautiful forms. While the eye in vain seeks to familiarize itself with the exuberance and diversity of the forest vegetation, the ear drinks in the sounds of life which break the silence and deepen the solitude. Of these, while the interrupted notes of birds, loud or low, rapid or long-drawn, cheerful or plaintive, and ranging over a greater or less musical compass, are the most pleasing, the most constant are those of insects, which sometimes rise into a shrill and...
Stran 33 - Arabia. Contiguous to it is a mountain, which stretches towards Memphis, and contains quarries of stone. Commencing at the foot of this, it extends from west to east, through a considerable tract of country, and where a mountain opens to the south, is discharged into the Arabian gulf.
Stran 277 - ... minutes and have all the appearance of the prepared article. When it is quite pure the colour is of a greyish white, but as brought to market it is more ordinarily found of a reddish hue, arising from chips of bark that fall into the sap in the act of making the incisions, and which yield their colour to it. Besides these accidental chips there is a great deal of intentional adulteration by sawdust and other materials. Some specimens I have lately seen brought to market, could not have contained...
Stran 384 - All the sea is perfectly clear from any mixture of sand or mud ; even where it breaks on a sand beach, it retains its perfect purity, as the large grains of coral are heavy and do not break into mud, so that if a...
