Littell s Living Age Book Excerpt:

Excerpt from Littell's Living Age: 14 September, 1844 A small charge sent through the spine instantly deprives the person for a moment of all muscular power, and be generally falls to the ground. If the charge be very powerful, instant death is occa sioned. Mr. Singer states that a charge passed through the head gave him the sensation of a vio lent and universal blow, which was followed by a transient loss of memory and indistinctness of vision. A small charge sent through the head of a bird will so far derange the Optic nerve as to pro duce permanent blindness; and a coated surface of thirty square inches of glass will ex aust the whole nervous system to such a degree a to cause immediate death. Animals the most tenacious of life are destroyed by energetic shocks passed through the body. Van Marum found that eels are irrecoverably deprived of life when a shock is sent through their whole body; when only a part of the body is included in the circuit, the destruo tion is confined to that individual part, while the rest retains the power of motion. The bodies of animals killed by lightning are found to undergo rapid putrefaction; and it is a remarkable circumstance, that after death the blood does not coagulate.

Littell s Living Age Vol 2 Book Excerpt:

Excerpt from Littell's Living Age, Vol. 2: From 10 August to 26 October, 1844; With a Complete Index The law of Nature, in Coleridge's words, has irrevocably decreed that the way to knowl edge shall be long, diflicult, winding, and often times returning upon itself. Thus to a vulgar apprehension, a child's mind will he apparently sailing away from its object, when in truth it is only following the devious current which securely leads to it. Of all the errors in education that of overmuch dependence upon teaching is most to be dreaded, because least to be rectified. On this account it is, that, even under the most judicious direction, regular series of lessons never do so much good aswhen a gap is left here and there for the mind's own Operations. There is a self development in what is involuntarily preferred and unconsciously chosen, which the regular habits of mechanical acquirement are indispensable to pro mote, but insufficient to attain there is a wisdom gained to the mind in being left to know both what it can do for itself and what it needs from others, which a continuous form of instruction may assist but can never impart; and those parents or teachers can know but little of the real nature of education, or of the being they have to educate, who hesitate to confess that, after all they may have taught him, the nicest art consists in know ing where to leave him to teach himself.

Littell s Living Age Vol 1 Book Excerpt:

Excerpt from Littell's Living Age, Vol. 1: From 11 April to 3 August, 1844; With a Complete Index The First Step is not always the only difficulty; it is net so in a journal; but it is a difficulty. There is so much to be done in organizing a new office, and preparing so large a number as this, that we have been delayed a week longer than we intended. Finding that we should necessarily be slow, until we can "get the steam up," we determined not to attempt to do more than to show, in a first number, the size, general appearance, and about the weight of our matter. So that our readers will not find the gloss of novelty on every article; - not, for instance, on the excellent review of Prescott's Conquest of Mexico; - but we should not have been willing under any circumstances to fail to appropriate so hearty a commendation, by such high authority, of an American author. We lose much by the absence of Miscellany, Science, Art, Obituary, which will be regular heads in our work; and also by not including any English political speculations - or even the slight view of domestic affairs which comes within our plan. Even as it is, we publish before we are quite prepared, and shall be obliged to delay our second number till the 25th - making an interval of a fortnight. We hope our Southern and Western correspondents will not give us up because we have annexed New England. We cannot agree to the dissolution of the union which has subsisted between us for so many years. It is to their advantage that we should have the most favorable post for our army of observation that is, our printing-office. We shall here receive the foreign periodicals earliest; - we shall have the best communication with western New York, and with the countries bordering on the lakes (north as well as south;) and we hope that we shall receive a kindly welcome to many new post-offices in this part of the country. No time will be lost in the transmission of the work to distant subscribers, and the advantage of appearing four times as often as before will make our matter fresher than it was in the Museum, even to Philadelphia subscribers. We beg leave to borrow for a moment from our friend the New York Albion his motto, "C lum, Non Animum, Mutant, Qui Trans Mare Currunt," which means, when done into English, that we are as desirous of continuing and increasing our business to the south and west as ever. As we go to press we hear the noise of the steamer's arrival, and that our periodicals are on board, but we cannot use them for this number. We shall have abundant time and opportunity for treating of the matter of Texas, on its rebound from Europe in about a month. But we wish to say a few words in the mean time. Finally, and we hope not dishonorably, we shall probably be united to that territory, and the coasters of New England will have a home voyage equal in length to a passage to Europe. Apart from the constitutional question - and the still more important point of good faith to Mexico - the principal excitement relates to the matter of slavery. The National Intelligencer has an article addressed to Southern readers, in which it gives very good reasons for supposing that the effect of annexation will be to draw a large part of the population from Maryland, Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky and Missouri - and that the vacated lands will be settled by emigration from Pennsylvania and other free states, and cultivated by free labor; and that these states may be expected to become free states. This is our opinion, based upon some knowledge of the process which has already begun there. Besides this, it appears by Mr. Clay's letter, that not more than half of Texas itself is fit for slave labor; - and this consideration, as he well observes, may lessen the avidity of the south, and the opposition of the north, so far as these feelings are founded upon political considerations. We do not believe that the acquisition of Texas will in"

Littell s Living Age Vol 1 Book Excerpt:

Excerpt from Littell's Living Age, Vol. 1: From 11 April to 3 August, 1844 Great able to survey but little of the neighboring coast in either direction; and, with the exception of this point, the region between the 1l5th and 83d de grees of longitude, from the Coppermine River to the offshoot, called Melville Peninsula, was still unexplored. It would appear from the instruo tions that the exploration of this interval to its full eastward extent did not enter into the immediate contemplation of the directors. The party is merely instructed, starting from the Coppermine, to reach, if possible, the scene of Captain Beck's discoveries; deciding, as in case of success it must, on its way the question at issue between Sir John Ross and Sir George Back, whether Boothia, the land so named by the former officer, be a penin sula joined on to the main land to the west of the Tlewocho, or whether, as Back opined, a strait existed which had escaped Rose's observation. It will be seen that Mr. Simpson more than per formed the service indicated in this instruction; that, afier discovering and passing through the strait suspected by Sir G. Back, and thus disposing of the presumed peninsula, and of Sir J. Ross's famous discovery of a difference of level between the seas on either side, he followed the coast-line to some little extent beyond the point where Back was repelled by the advanced state of the season. From this summary it will be seen that, for some ten degrees of longitude, the coast of the conti nent still presents a field for further adventure. We have been robbed of one peninsula, but it appears nearly certain that a considerable tract of land, of which the eastern continuous coast has been ascertained by Parry and Franklin, deserves the name it bears of Melville Peninsula; that it shoots out to the north for some 5° of latitude, and is joined to the main land by a narrow isthmus near Repulse Bay. This latter fact does not in deed rest as yet on actual observation, but there is every reason to put faith in the Esquimaux ac counts, which bring a gulf of the Polar Sea to within 40 or 50 miles of Repulse Bay.

American Literature and the Culture of Reprinting 1834 1853 Book Excerpt:

The antebellum period has long been identified with the belated emergence of a truly national literature. And yet, as Meredith L. McGill argues, a mass market for books in this period was built and sustained through what we would call rampant literary piracy: a national literature developed not despite but because of the systematic copying of foreign works. Restoring a political dimension to accounts of the economic grounds of antebellum literature, McGill unfolds the legal arguments and political struggles that produced an American "culture of reprinting" and held it in place for two crucial decades. In this culture of reprinting, the circulation of print outstripped authorial and editorial control. McGill examines the workings of literary culture within this market, shifting her gaze from first and authorized editions to reprints and piracies, from the form of the book to the intersection of book and periodical publishing, and from a national literature to an internally divided and transatlantic literary marketplace. Through readings of the work of Dickens, Poe, and Hawthorne, McGill seeks both to analyze how changes in the conditions of publication influenced literary form and to measure what was lost as literary markets became centralized and literary culture became stratified in the early 1850s. American Literature and the Culture of Reprinting, 1834-1853 delineates a distinctive literary culture that was regional in articulation and transnational in scope, while questioning the grounds of the startlingly recent but nonetheless powerful equation of the national interest with the extension of authors' rights.
