Page 53 - No town that I know of in all the world has such a panorama of perpetual beauty spread before it as Denver has in this best and broadest belt of the Rocky Mountains, that rises up from the valley in which it is built, and winds away to the right and to the left as far as the eye can see...
Page 41 - An explanation of all the motions and other dynamic phenomena consequent on the action of magnets on diamagnetic bodies, might, he thinks, be offered on the supposition that magnetic induction causes in them a state the reverse of that which it produces in magnetic matter: that is, if a particle of each kind of matter were placed in the magnetic field, both would become magnetic, and each would have its axis parallel to the resultant of magnetic force passing through it ; but the particle of magnetic...
Page 198 - Observations made at the Magnetical and Meteorological Observatory, at Toronto, in Canada. Printed by order of Her Majesty's Government, under the superintendence of Lieut.
Page 41 - Of these phenomena, the diamagnetic are the most important, from their extending largely, and in a new direction, that character of duality which the magnetic force was already known, in a certain degree, to possess. All matter, indeed, appears to be subject to the magnetic force as universally as it is to the gravitating, the electric, the cohesive and the chemical forces. Small as the magnetic force appears to be in the limited field of our experiments, yet when estimated by its dynamic effects...
Page 48 - And be it further enacted by the authority aforesaid, that all moneys collected under and by virtue of this Act shall be paid into the hands of the...
Page 48 - Record ; and no Warrant of Commitment shall be held void by reason of any Defect therein, provided it be therein alleged that the Party has been convicted, and there be a good and valid Conviction to sustain the same.
Page 97 - March, but the time was extended to the 18th of April, to meet the convenience of a lady, a professor of Mesmerism, and the authoress of an ingenious book on the subject, who arrived from London in the beginning of the month, and who expressed a wish to have some time longer to prepare her clairvoyance for the test. Six months and seventeen days having expired, and no person having appeared at the bank to examine the envelope, it was opened on the 18th instant, in the presence of Messrs Ball and...
Page 82 - ... with MM. Chevallier and Andral. It is perfectly unnecessary for me to occupy the pages of this Journal with any observations on the nature, of the danger which thus threatens the junior branches of the community, and which indisputably exercises the most pernicious effects on their constitutions, I will merely remark, that one concern in the city, from which I have obtained the greatest number of poisonous specimens, employs eleven men daily in the preparation of these articles, furnishes immense...
Page 44 - ... Licensing in the same hands, is wrong in principle and liable to great abuse in practice. Instead of conferring the right to license on Medical Colleges, and State and County Medical Societies, it should be restricted to one Board in each State, composed in fair proportion of representatives from its Medical Colleges, and the profession at large, and the pay, for whose services as examiners, should in no degree depend on the number licensed by them, ' made a report in reference to the subject,...
Page 70 - It is not uncommon for the greater number of cases to occur in the practice of one man, whilst the other practitioners of the neighborhood, who are not more skilful or more busy, meet with few or none. A practitioner opened the body of a woman who had died of puerperal fever, and continued to wear the same clothes. A lady whom he delivered a few days afterwards was attacked with and died of a similar disease; two more of his lying-in patients, in rapid succession, met with the same fate; struck...
