Seite 296 - ... if the spirit of evil is, before the final consummation of things, to be cast down from his dominion over men and bound in the chains of a thousand years, the foretaste here of man's eternal felicity, then this system of common instruments to accomplish all the changes of social and friendly commerce will furnish the links of sympathy between the inhabitants of the most distant regions; the metre will surround the globe in use as well as in multiplied extension, and one language of weights and...
Seite 296 - Considered merely as a labor-saving machine, it is a new power, offered to man, incomparably greater than that which he has acquired by the new agency which he has given to steam. It is in design the greatest invention of human ingenuity since that of printing.

In the former, the carbon of the gas was raised, by the same means (the combustion of the hydrogen), to the high temperature, but could not suffer combustion until it was brought into contact, in its turn, with its equivalent of the oxygen of the air. If, however, that supply of air was not provided before the carbon lost its high temperature,...
Seite 295 - ... change whatever of the system could be adopted, without losing the greatest of all the elements of uniformity, that referring to the persons using the same system. This uniformity we now possess, in common with the whole British nation ; the nation with which, of all the nations of the earth, we have the most of that intercourse which requires the constant use of weights and measures.
Seite 461 - Fatigue" of metals. Metal in a state of rest, although sustaining a heavy pressure or strain, as in a beam or girder, and exhibiting only the deflection due to the superposed weight, would continue to bear that pressure without fracture so long as its rest was not disturbed, and the same strain was not too frequently repeated ; but if either of these cases occurred a certain disturbance of the particles took place, the metal was deteriorated, and that portion subject to the reiterated strain was...
Seite 292 - Congress for dwelling upon these details which signalized the establishment of the new French metrical system. The spectacle is at once so rare and so sublime, in which the genius, the science, the skill, and the power of great confederated nations are seen joining hand in hand in the true spirit of fraternal equality, arriving in concert at one destined stage of improvement in the condition of human kind ; that, not to pause for a moment, were it even from occupations not essentially connected with...
Seite 168 - Institution shall be considered the property thereof, unless there shall have been some previous arrangement to the contrary, and the Council may publish the same, in any way and at any time they may think proper.
