Strana 102 - Of courage undaunted ; possessing a firmness and perseverance of purpose which nothing but impossibilities could divert from its direction; careful as a 'father of those committed to his charge, yet steady in the maintenance of order and discipline; intimate with the Indian character, customs, and principles; habituated to the hunting life ; guarded, by exact observation of the vegetables and animals of his own country, against losing time in the description of objects already possessed; honest,...
Strana 141 - The leaves for these ought to be collected about 10 AM on a sunny morning, when the dew has evaporated. The Powchong can only be manufactured from the leaves of the first crop ; but the Mingehew, although it requires the same care in making as the other, can yet be made from any crop, provided it is made on a sunny morning. The Chinese dislike gathering leaves on a rainy day for any description of tea, and never will do so, unless necessity requires it. Some...
Strana 288 - Some on the lower boughs, which cross'd their way, Fixing their bearded fibres, round and round, With many a ring and wild contortion wound ; Some to the passing wind, at times with sway Of gentle motion swung ; Others of younger growth, unmoved, were hung Like stone-drops from the cavern's fretted height.
Strana 102 - ... and discipline; intimate with the Indian character, customs, and principles; habituated to the hunting life; guarded, by exact observation of the vegetables and animals of his own country, against losing time in the description of objects already possessed; honest, disinterested, liberal, of sound understanding, and a fidelity to truth so scrupulous, that whatever he should report would be as certain as if seen by ourselves; with all these qualifications, as if selected and implanted by nature...
Strana 358 - of reading your Species Planlarum, a very useful and laborious work. But, rny dear friend, we that admire you are much concerned that you should perplex the delightful science of botany with changing names that have been well received, and adding new names quite unknown to us. Thus botany, which was a pleasant study, and attainable by most men, is now become, by alterations and new names, the study of a man's life, and none now but real professors can pretend to attain it. As I love you, I tell...
Strana 363 - Lyon, &c., compose the most important portion of this herbarium, so far as North American botany is concerned. There is also a small Canadian collection made by Pursh, subsequently to the publication of his Flora, a considerable number of Menzies's plants, and other minor contributions. To the general botanist, probably the fine herbarium of Pallas, and the splendid collection of Ruiz and Pavon, (both acquired by Mr. Lambert at a great expense,) are of the highest interest ; and they are by no means...
Strana 355 - ... this enterprising pupil of Linnaeus remained three years in this country, travelling throughout New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Lower Canada : hence his plants are almost exclusively those of the Northern States.f Governor...
Strana 355 - ... is now considered too small,) and those of each genus covered by a double sheet, in the ordinary manner. The names are usually written upon the sheet itself, with a mark or abbreviation to indicate the source from which the specimen was derived. Thus those from the Upsal garden are marked HU, those given by Kalm, K., those received from Gronovius, Gron., &c. The labels are all in the handwriting of Linnaeus himself, except a few later ones by the son, and occasional notes by Smith, which are...
Strana 365 - Americana, the Botanical Magazine, the Botanical Miscellany, the Journal of Botany, the Icones Plantarum, and other works of this industrious botanist abundantly testify ; and no single herbarium will afford the student of North American botany such extensive aid as that of Sir Wm. Hooker. The herbarium of Dr. Arnott of Arlary, although more especially rich and authentic in East Indian plants, is also interesting to the North American botanist, as well for the plants of the Botany of Capt.
Strana 358 - From all this, botany appears to have flourished in the North American colonies. But Dr. Garden, about this time, writes thus to his friend Ellis : " Ever since 1 have been in Carolina, I have never been able to set my eye upon one who had barely a regard for botany. Indeed I have often wondered how there should be one place abounding with so many marks of the divine wisdom and power, and not one rational eye to contemplate them ; or that there should be a...
