Página 776 - YE field flowers ! the gardens eclipse you, 'tis true, Yet, wildings of Nature, I doat upon you, For ye waft me to summers of old, When the earth teem'd around me with fairy delight, And when daisies and buttercups gladden'd my sight, Like treasures of silver and gold.
Página 866 - They find the red cup-moss where they climb, And they chase the bee o'er the scented thyme ; And the rocks where the heath-flower blooms they know — Lady, kind lady, oh! let me go!
Página 1106 - Upon being cut open, the diseased part of the potatoes was not found to have spread internally, and the flavour of the root was in no degree affected by the application of the process, nor do I think that its germinating power was injured by the effect of the sulphate. The effect upon the beet-roots was similar to that produced upon the potatoes, and which would seem to be somewhat analogous to that of galvanizing metals, viz. protecting the substances from the effect of atmospheric agencies. I may...
Página 1125 - O'er dizzy rocks and woods, and headlong streams How like the voice of woman, when she sings To her beloved, of love and constancy, The vernal odours, o'er the murmurings Of distant waters, pour their melody Into his soul, mix'd with the throstle's song And the wren's twitter ? Welcome then, again, Love-listening primrose ; though not parted long, We meet, like lovers, after years of pain. Oh, thou bring'st blissful childhood back to me ! Thou still art loveliest in the lonest place ; Still, as of...
Página 1155 - PaskMba barriguda. By its side is a blowpipe ten or twelve feet long, and a little quiver full of small poisoned arrows hangs up near it ; with these the Indian procures birds for food, or for their gay feathers, or even brings down the wild hog or the tapir, and it is from the stem and spines of two species of Palms that they are made. His great...
Página 1042 - The branch struck off from one of the intermedia! sides, at what in the transverse section would be at right angles with the cones; and though little can be founded on a single specimen, such, certainly, is the disposition of branch that seems best to consort with such a disposition of cone. It may be added, said Mr. M., that if all the branches were also ranged in one plane like the cones, such a disposition would not be quite without example in the vegetable kingdom, even as it now exists. " Our...
Página 1079 - Creator. — Horticultural Papers, English edition, p. 253. Professor J. Lindley, one of the best of botanical writers, says : The species of plants, like those of animals, appear to be eternal, so far as anything mundane can deserve that name. There is not the slightest evidence to show that any species of plant has become extinct during tho present order of things.
Página 1126 - It is customary with children to challenge each other to try the ' Kemps.' A kemp consists of the stalk and the head or spike. Of these an equal number is skilfully selected by the opposed parties ; then one is held out to be struck at with one from the opponent's parcel, which is thrown aside if decapitated, but if not, is used to give a stroke in return. Thus with alternate strokes given and received, the boys proceed until all the Kemps but one are beheaded, and he who has the entire Kemp considers...
Página 1106 - I procured some more potatoes, and also some beet-roots, the former being, as far as I could judge, all diseased. I divided the potatoes into three portions. One lot I placed in a vessel with a weak solution of sulphuric acid, and from thence I placed them in a solution of weak lime-water.
Página 1105 - ... compound should be decomposed by carbonic acid, and that the excess of sulphur should be deposited with the carbonate of lime in a uniform and durable covering on the stems and branches of the vines. This was adopted, and although but few applications were made, the stems became coated with a deposit of sulphur, and the disease gradually but effectually diminished, in so much that the houses are now entirely free from any trace of disease or symptoms of infection. The young shoots are in no way...
