Abridged from an English work, for the Chronicle. SERPENTS. STRUCTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 1 April 1847

Abridged from an English work, for the Chronicle. SERPENTS. STRUCTURE. Snakes, or serpents, form one of the most beautiful and interesting families in the animal kingdom. Possessing the most perfect symmetry of form, and fitted by nuture for a peculiar and lowly life, they fulfill purposes in creation which could not be performed so well by any other existing order. Their structure, like every other portion of nature's handiwork, is fimly adapted to their respective modes of existence. They are true vertebrlted or back-boned animals; but the usual distinction of vertebrea of the neck, back and loins, does not hold in their case; all the bones being similar, and only diminishing in size towards the tail. The want of feet implies the absence of a breast-bone and plevis, so that a snake from head to tail is a mere succession of rib and buack bone. The vertebrae are extremely small and numerous— those of the trunk sometimes amounting to three hundred; and those of the tail tonmore than ...

OLIVER CROMWELL. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 1 April 1847

OLIVER CROMWELL. In a recent letter, on the character of Oliver Cromwell, Mr. Headley commenced by stating that there were four things respecting which English hisiortans could not be depended on: the American Revolution, Napoleon and his Career, the Rebellion in Ireland, and Oliver Cromwell. He gave a brief acconnt of the causes which led to the outbreak of which Cromwell eventually became the lender. In war England had to contend against tyranny. The Commons in England had to contend against the three, oppressive royalty, a feudal aristocracy, and a grsping clergy. The lecturer then proceeded to give a brief history of the several Parliaments under Charles I., from June 1826, down to the celebrated long Parliament, which commenced its session in November, 1650 speaking particularly of the conflicts between king and Parliament, and of the demands of the people for redress. At the opening of the long Parliament, the people were still bent on obtaining redress. They bad seen that no ...

ABODES OF THE POOR. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 1 April 1847

ABODES OF THE POOR. One of the Editors of the Express has recently desciibed two visits to the Old Brewery in Anthony st., once from curiosity, and next as the distributor or the alms of several benevolent persons. His discriptions of the place ought to be read by all who have no idea of the horrible condition to which poverty, without crime as well as with, can reduce human beings in a large city like this. The building is some hundred feet in length, and is divided into small apartments; it is occupied by about sixty families—though we have been told that the number of lodgers in it is sometimes as large as one thousand. We will copy some of the facts recorded by the Editor of the Express :— Our visit was in the night time, and most of the residents were at home. In one room we saw a husband and his wife, with three children, sound asleep on a bed of shavings, and the furniture of the room consisted only of a pine box, a wooden bowl, which was full of meal, and a tin cup, while on...

FREEZING IN SUMMER. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 1 April 1847

FREEZING IN SUMMER. The atmosphere, no matter what its temperature, has always the power of absorbing a certain quantity of moisture. This process is known by the name of evaporation. By it moist bodies are deprived of their superabundant moisture, and that the more rapidly when the air is dry, warm, and moved by a brisk breeze. Evaporation is always attended by a loss lose of calorie; and thus a man may be friozen todeath in ihe hidtesl day of summer— the hotter the day the quicker the process. For by dressing him in flannel moistened with ether, and exposing him to the rays of the sun, at the same time sprinkling him with more ether, the evaporation will be so rapid, and the quantity of caloric extracted from the body to form the vapors, so great, that he will be shortly deprived of that portion of vital heat aessental to existence. The experiment may be tried by wrapping a bottle of water in lint dipped in ether, and exposed to the sun. In a few minutes the water will be frozen.<...

The Spirit of Exaggeration. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 1 April 1847

The Spirit of Exaggeration. The object of all inquiry is truth. Among the obstacles which obstruct the progress of the inquirer, the general tendency to exaggerate holds a prominent place. To whatever department of knowledge you turn your attention, you will find that this prevailing inclination of mankind has preceded you, and left its sure and distinct traces.— We know of no history which is not more or less indebted to exaggeration for its popularity and fame. In criticism, he who can exaggerate the most boldly and the most skillfully, becomes for the time the ruler of the republic of letters. In morals and religion, systems, doctrines and creeds are often erected on no other foundation than exaggerated conceptions ang views. Aud the common conversation and table-talk of the day, if it could be collected and presented in one mass, would constitute what might be denominated a grand accumulation of exaggerations. For an illustration of the effects of this spirit, we will cite the R...

Look Out! —Dr. Reed, of England, in a treatise on Fever, recently published, bus put forth the following singular announcement:—"The author confidently predicts a dreadful visitation of the cholera at the close of summer, or at the beginning of autumn, most likely in the month of August, to be succeeded by a desolating outbreak of typhus fever. He moreover predicts that those who will fall victims to these discuses are the very highest and the very lowest classes of society—those who, in consequence of their imprudence and profligacy, have induced want and starvation, with its accompanying miseries; and those who, and consequence of their avarice, gluttony, intemperance and inhumanity, have induced an unhealthy plethoric state of the system, coupled with an uneasy conscience. The author thinks he could go further, and point out some of the individuals on whom this judgment will fall; but he forbears, leaving secret things to the All-wise Judge and Disposer of aII events both in heav...
