Seite 4 - NATURE ! We are surrounded and embraced by her : powerless to separate ourselves from her, and powerless to penetrate beyond her. Without asking, or warning, she snatches us up into her circling dance, and whirls us on until we are tired, and drop from her arms. She is ever shaping new forms : what is, has never yet been ; what has been, comes not again. Everything is new, and yet nought but the old.
Seite xxx - Chigwell, my dear fellow, is the greatest place in the world. Name your day for going. Such a delicious old inn opposite the churchyard, — such a lovely ride, — such beautiful forest scenery, — such an out-of-the-way, rural place, — such a sexton ! I say again, name your day.
Seite 37 - Presented by Mr. or Mrs. So-and-so'; the object of the presentation having been either to cherish a glow of generous self-satisfaction in the bosom of the donor, or to get .rid — under the semblance of doing a good action — of rubbish that had once been prized, but latterly had stood in the way. Curiosities from the South Seas, relics worthless in themselves, deriving their interest from association with persons or localities, a few badly stuffed quadrupeds, rather more birds, a stuffed snake,...
Seite 52 - Mightiest of all the beasts of chase, That roam in woody Caledon, Crashing the forest in his race, The mountain bull comes thundering on. Fierce, on the hunter's quiver'd band, He rolls his eyes of swarthy glow, Spurns, with black hoof and horn, the sand. And tosses high his mane of snow.
Seite 112 - From all the above facts I infer that all our species that are found only in the female sex are represented in another generation by both sexes, and that the two broods are, owing to seasonal differences, produced from galls, that are entirely distinct from each other.
Seite 38 - ... gods, a case or two of shells, the bivalves usually single and the univalves decorticated, a sea urchin without its spines, a few common corals, the fruit of a double cocoa-nut, some mixed antiquities, partly local, partly Etruscan, partly Roman and Egyptian, and a case of minerals and miscellaneous fossils — such is the inventory and about the scientific order of their contents.
Seite 97 - How the mere insertion of an egg into the substance of a leaf or twig, even if accompanied, as some imagine, by a peculiar fluid, should cause the growth of such singular protuberances around it, philosophers are as little able to explain, as why the insertion of a particle of variolous matter into a child's arm should cover it with pustules of small pox.
Seite xvi - Plattner's Manual of Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis with the Blow-Pipe. From the last German Edition, revised and enlarged. By Prof. TH. RICHTER, of the Royal Saxon Mining Academy. Translated by Prof. HB CORNWALL, Assistant in the Columbia School of Mines, New York.
Seite xxvii - It is of an irregular figure, rather longest from east to west, and on a gentle declivity to the south-east. It contains nearly twelve acres, and is surrounded by a ditch, and...
Seite xxx - The day was named at once; and the whitest of stones marks it, in now sorrowful memory. His promise was exceeded by our enjoyment ; and his delight in the double recognition, of himself and of Barnaby, by the landlord of the nice old inn, far exceeded any pride he would have taken in what the world thinks the highest sort of honor.
