Seite 160 - ... the most savage and ruthless character, in the very lowest stage of civilization. In such a country and among such a people are found these wonderful productions of nature. In those trackless wilds do they display that exquisite beauty and that marvellous development of plumage, calculated to excite admiration and astonishment among the most civilized and most intellectual races of man.

Seite 159 - ... a profitable merchandise. The same causes frequently lead the inhabitants of uncivilized countries to conceal any minerals or other natural products with which they may become acquainted, from the fear of being obliged to pay increased tribute, or of bringing upon themselves a new and oppressive labour.
Seite 162 - These nests were formed of dead grass and parts of bushes, sunk a slight depth into two parallel furrows in sandy soil, and then nicely arched above.

In one instance, in the nest...
Seite 306 - The specific name of mtdiocandlata has reference to an interesting and almost specific character in connection with the water-vascular system, into which we have not space to enter. Leuckart has proved by experiment that the measles or cysticerci which produced this worm are to be found in the muscles and internal organs of cattle. He administered proglottides of T. mediocanellata to three calves, a sheep, and a pig. In the two last-named animals, they produced no effect, as was shewn by their post-mortem...
