Seite 67 - It affords no presumption against the reality of this progress, that, in respect of man, it is too slow to be immediately perceived. The utmost portion of it to which our experience can extend, is evanescent, in comparison with the whole, and must be regarded as the momentary increment of a vast progression, circumscribed by no other limits than the duration of the world. Time performs the office of integrating the infinitesimal parts of which this progression is made up; it collects them...
Seite 198 - The leading idea which is present in all our researches, and which accompanies every fresh observation, the sound which to the ear of the student of Nature seems continually echoed from every part of her works is — Time...

Seite 182 - ... shorter duration than those of the lower parts of the animal kingdom, and thus carry with them the greatest weight in questions of geological time ; still it appears to me that there is nothing in the fossil contents of the Devonian beds which is conclusive against the idea of their occupying a position between the top of the Old Red Sandstone and the base of the Coalmeasures.

Under the lens very large ooliths, or pisoliths, appear, from a quarter of an inch to half an inch in diameter, but no traces of organic remains were discovered. The total thickness of these rocks, as exposed at Rutland bridge, is about twenty feet. SAINT LOUIS LIMESTONE. Exposures of rock...
Seite 176 - Of singular merit for its clearness and trustworthy character."— Standard. GEOLOGY FOR GENERAL READERS. A Series of Popular Sketches in Geology and Palaeontology. By the Same. Third Edition, enlarged. 6s. " This is one of the best of Mr Page's many good books. It is written in a flowing popular style. Without illustration or any extraneous aid, the narrative must prove attractive to any intelligent reader."— Geological Magazine.

Seite 81 - Dr. Carpenter then combated the opinion advanced by Professor King and Dr. Rowney, in the preceding paper, and stated that even if the remarkable dendritic passages hollowed out in the calcareous layers, and the arrangements of the minerals in the Eozoic limestone, could be accounted for by inorganic agencies, there still remains the...
Seite 122 - ... producing a bituminous matter instead of coal or lignite. This operation is not attributable to heat, nor of the nature of a distillation, but is due to chemical reactions at the ordinary temperature, and under the normal conditions of climate.
