USE AND ABUSE OF STIMULANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 26 August 1845
USE AND ABUSE OF STIMULANTS. If persons in hot climates drink wine, spi- rits, or malt liquors, there is an excess of function in the whole nervous system in- compatible with health, and the person soon wears out. But if, on the contrary, the air be damp and stagnant, and the soil level, the respiratory function is worse performed ; there, the air doing less, the food is re- quired to do more, and the stomach and digestive organs not being able to digest the food in sufficient quantity to supply the nerves, the latter are empty and craving, though the former is full. Here we have the strange phenomenon of a person eating heartily, perhaps too heartily, and still craving more ; such a person complains of a " sinking" of the stomach, and is always relieved by good wine and brandy ; provided that the digestive organs, and the liver in particular, are not previously injured by their use, this will be desired by all those who are influenced by " total abstinence " doctrines, because, unt...
THE RIVULET. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 26 August 1845
THE RIVULET. &nbsp; THIS little rill that, from the springs Of yonder grove, its current brings, Plays on the slope a while, and then Goes prattling into groves again, Oft to its warbling waters drew My little feet, when life was new. When woods in early green were dressed, And from the chambers of the west The warmer breezes, travelling out, Breathed the new scent of flowers about, My truant steps from home would stray, &nbsp; Upon its grassy side to play, List the brown thrasher's vernal hymn, And crop the violet on its brim, With blooming check and open brow, As young and gay, sweet rill, as thou. And when the days of boyhood came, And I had grown in love with fame, Duly I sought thy banks, and tried My first rude numbers by thy side. Words cannot tell how bright and gay The scenes of life before me lay. Then glorious hopes, that now to speak Would bring the blood into my check, Pass'd o'er me ; and I wrote, on high, A name I deem'd should never die. Years change ...

AGRICULTURE. LIME AS A MANURE. From Liebig's Letters on Chemistry. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 29 August 1845
I AGltlCULTUltE. LIME AS A MANURE. From Liebig s Leiters on Chemistry. Ai.r. plants cultivated as food require for their healthy sustenance tho alkalies and al- kaline earths, each in a certain proportion ; and, in addition to these, the cerulia do not succeed in a soil destitulo of silica, in a so- luble condition. The combinations of this substance found as natural productions, namely, the silicates, differ greatly in thu degree of facility with which they undergo decomposition, in consequence of tho un- equal resistance opposed by their integral parts to the dissolving; power of tho atmos- pheric agencies. Thus, tho granito of Cor- sica degenerates into a powder in a time which scarcely suffices to deprive thc polished granite of Heidelberg; of ¡ts lustre. Some soils abound in silicates so readily decomposable, that ia every ono or tyn years as much silicato of potash becomes io lublc, and fitted for assimilation, as is re- quired by the leaves and straw of a cropjof wheat. In Hu...
