Стр. xxvii - To give a stronger impulse and a more systematic direction to scientific inquiry, — to promote the intercourse of those who cultivate Science in different parts of the British Empire, with one another, and with foreign philosophers, — to obtain a more general attention to the objects of Science, and a removal of any disadvantages of a public kind which impede its progress.
Стр. 758 - ... the art of directing the great sources of power in nature for the use and convenience of man, as the means of production and of traffic in states.
Стр. 819 - I look with confidence to the future, to young and rising naturalists, who will be able to view both sides of the question with impartiality.
Стр. 815 - Beagle,' as naturalist, I was much struck with certain facts in the distribution of the organic beings inhabiting South America, and in the geological relations of the present to the past inhabitants of that continent. These facts, as will be seen in the latter chapters of this volume, seemed to throw some light on the origin of species — that mystery of mysteries, as it has been called by one of our greatest philosophers.
Стр. xxx - Committees for the several Sections before the beginning of the Meeting.

She lived with him until one day she recovered the skin, resumed her seal-shape and plunged into the sea, never more to return. In...
Стр. xxx - It has therefore become necessary, in order to give an opportunity to the Committees of doing justice to the several Communications, that each Author should prepare an Abstract of his Memoir, of a length suitable for insertion in the published Transactions of the Association, and that he should send it, together with the original Memoir, by book-post, on or before addressed thus— 'General Secretaries, British Association, 22 Albemarle Street, London, \V.
Стр. 502 - It is believed that most of the words — as distinguished from their pronunciation — in use have been recorded in the publications of the English Dialect Society or elsewhere. But it is better to record them again than to leave them unrecorded. Nor should it be forgotten in this connection that a word of ten bears a different shade of meaning in one place from what it bears in another. In recording any words, care should therefore be taken to seize not only the exact sound, but the exact signification,...
Стр. 493 - For these and such other villages and places as may appear to be suitable, the Committee propose to record — (1) Physical types of the inhabitants ; (2) Current traditions and beliefs ; (3) Peculiarities of dialect ; (4) Monuments and other remains of ancient culture ; and (5) Historical evidence as to continuity of race. »% All communications should be addressed to ' THE SECRETARY OF THE ETHNOGRAPHIC SURVEY, British Association, Burlington House, London, W.
