Some corn of this year's crop will not yield a stone of flour from a sack of wheat ; and it is not impossible that in some cases the corn has been so completely robbed of its flour by the fungus, that if the proprietor should choose to incur the expense of thrashing and grinding it, bran would be the produce, with scarce an atom of flour for each grain. Every species of corn, properly so called, is subject to the blight ; but it is observable that spring...
Seite 314 - He had no suspicion at the time of the real nature of his indisposition, which proved in fact to be a complaint common in Bengal, an inflammation in the liver. The disorder was, however, soon discovered by the penetration of the physician, who after two or three days was called in to his assistance; but it had then advanced too far to yield to the efficacy of the medicines usually prescribed, and they were administered in vain. The progress of the complaint was uncommonly rapid, and terminated fatally...
Seite 227 - England, by freemen ; in fact, they are so carried on with infinitely more advantage ; for there is an alacrity in a consciousness of freedom, and a gloomy sullen indolence in a consciousness of slavery ; but let sugar be as dear as it may, it is better to eat none, to eat honey, if sweetness only be palatable ; better to eat aloes or coloquintida, than violate a primary law of nature, impressed on every heart not imbruted by avarice, than rob one human creature of those eternal rights of which no...
