Excerpt from A Prospectus of the Water Cure Establishment at Malvern Be it remarked, that in demolishing the assertions of medical men of the drug-school, we have chiefly used their own weapons. We have shown, on the authority of writers recognised by themselves as orthodox, the utter groundlessness of their assertions, and the utter ignorance which dictated them. We have quoted chapter and verse, and, in most in stances, the words of those writers; and it will be necessary to prove the latter to be worthless before the weight of our statements can be diminished by one tittle.

Excerpt from Godfrey Malvern, or the Life of an Author Within a country churchyard, which stood upon the gentle slope of a green hill-side, -its summit crowned with a grey, old, and weather beaten church, - stood a young man dressed in deep mourning; his forehead half buried in the palm of his hand, while his elbow rested on the top of a tall gravestone. The tombstone was partly covered with a rich, short, orange-coloured lichen, such as is often seen on old ruins, or giving an additional beauty to the picturesque in landscape scenery. In the present instance, however, it was fast obliterating the workman ship of some forgotten village-sculpture, and already half concealed a very plump cherub, who with wings placed cross wise on his breast, and huge swollen cheeks, seemed endeavouring in vain to blow away the destructive creepers which were rapidly overgrowing both himself and his stony trumpet. As for the poor inhabitant below, not a letter was visible to tell of either his name or his age; and a. Grim death's-head, that stood grinning from a neighbouring gravestone - as if it had long watched the slow working of decay, -now seemed to gaze in triumph at the victory which Time had once more obtained over Human Vanity.

Tho' ample scope has been afforded to my labours, it will appear a matter of surprise, that one whose time has been devoted more to the toil of business, than to the cultivation of letters, Should have assumed courage suflicient to appear a second time before the tribunal of the public.

Excerpt from Lewell Pastures, Vol. 2 of 2 Yesterday morning, on the contrary, when Malvern had gone up alone, as if wishing to have the start of me, Sir Jasper positively refused to see him. NO one was visible but the idiot, and eloquence was wasted upon him. Malvern could not understand a word Of what he said, through the little window by the side of the entrance portal; but the strongest proof was given Of the visit being unwelcome, by the massive door being barred; and neither cajolery nor bribery would induce Thomas to open it.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

Excerpt from Final Report on the Battlefield of Gettysburg, Vol. 2 It would take too much time to attempt a description of that fight. In tt we lost in killed and wounded, Deming, Moore, Spencer, Gregory, and a good share of our men. It was fought after dark, and we aimed our muskets at the flash of the enemy's rifles. Towards morning we withdrew, and agatu formed our lines at Malvern Hill. This was a magnificent battle. The enemy were thoroughly whipped, but there was no one in authority to direct. An onward movement; consequently the army fell back to Harrison's Landing. In due, or rather dilatory, course of time, with our corps we were again on the old camp ground of the winter before; then, at Arlington Heights; and finally, after Pope was beaten, we reached Centreville. We ought to have been in the Second Bull Run. One or more people ought to have been killed by slow torture, for this damnable blundering - or worse. Again, movements were started that resulted in the battle of Antietam, where brave fighting was done by piece-meal; where Lee ought to have been crushed, and where he wasn't. In this battle the Sixty-first, I believe, did the most brilliant thing in its career, in the capture of more of the enemy than it had men. And where Captain Greig took a Rebel battle flag. This was due to the generalship of Barlow. Here, on account of a dangerous wound, we parted company with the man who had up to that date given us a special character. Barlow was to lead us as colonel no more. When he rejoined the army, it was as general of a brigade in the Eleventh Corps. It was fortunate for us that the next in command was Nelson A. Miles. It is rare that any regi ment has at one time two such men. While at Harper's Ferry, or on the way to Fredericksburg, a new company, under Captain Bain, reached us, and about doubled our numbers. On Decem ber 13, 1862, we had a losing hand in the slaughter at Fredericksburg. It is said that while we were lying down on the right side of the road, behind the close-board fence, that Miles was prospecting, and had sent back for permis sion to charge the rifle pits beyond. If such is the case it was lucky for us, that a bullet clipped his throat in time to prevent such an heroic act; had it been done, some of us, who to-day can enjoy a good dinner, would have added our names to the list of killed in battle. Miles recovered in time to lead the regiment at Chancellorsville, where he gained great credit by soldiership while in charge of the picket line. Our losses were not heavy in this campaign aside from Miles, who was dangerously wounded and never served again with the regiment. Lieutenant Colonel Broady succeeded him.

Excerpt from The Complete Poetical Works of Mrs. Browning In 1844 appeared the two volumes of Poems which have formed the basis of all the later editions of Mrs. Browning's miscellaneous works. They were dedicated, in an eloquent preface, to her father, who had been, as she said, both public and critic to her immature attempts; and beginning with the Drama of Exile, ' they included, beside most of the pieces which had appeared in the small volume of 1838, several more of those by which she will be best and longest remembered, such as 'the Dead Pan, ' 'the Vision of Poets, ' Cowper's Grave, ' and that wildly romantic ballad of contemo porary manners, Lady Geraldine's Courtship, ' which brought Robert Browning to her feet. It was John Kenyon, a kinsman, as has been said, of the Barrett family, and also the son of a schoolmate of Robert Browning's father, who encouraged the brilliant young author of Paracelsus, ' Sordello, ' Pippa Passes, ' the Cavalier Lyrics, ' and A Blot in the 'scutcheon, ' to write to the invalid lady (six years his senior), and tell her how much he had admired 'lady Geraldine's Courtship, ' and other pieces in the Poems of 1844. Nothing could have been more unworldly and unconventional than the opening, upon either side, of this famous correspondence which, after having been kept in a small cabinet by itself for fifty years, and treasured as a most precious and sacred family posses sion, was given to the world in 1899. I love your verses with all my heart, dear Miss Barrett, ' wrote Robert Browning in his first letter, 'the fresh, strange music, the affluent language, the exquisite pathos, and true, new, brave thought; but in thus ad dressing myself to you, your own self and for the first time, my feeling rises altogether. I do, as I say, love these books with all my heart, and I love you too.' This letter is dated January 10, 1845, and on the next day Miss Barrett replied.
