第 219 頁 - ... thick mist, hanging over the edge of the water, to the height perhaps of half a yard, and of the breadth of two or three yards, stretching along the coast as far as the eye could reach, and always retiring with the water. When this cloud came to be examined, it proved to be nothing else than so much space filled with young shrimps, in the act of bounding into the air from the shallow margin of the water, or from the wet sand.
第 219 頁 - Walking by the sea-side, in a calm evening, upon a sandy shore, and with an ebbing tide, I have frequently remarked the appearance of a dark cloud, or, rather, very thick mist, hanging over the edge of the water, to the height, perhaps, of half a yard, and of the breadth of two or three yards, stretching along the coast as far as the eye could reach, and always retiring with the water. When this cloud came to be examined, it proved to be nothing else than so much space, filled with young shrimps...
第 368 頁 - At first view, you might suppose this animal to be a lizard, but it has the motions of a fish. Its head, and the lower part of its body and its tail bear a strong resemblance to those of the eel ; but it has no fins ; and its curious...
第 44 頁 - It may give a better conception of the amount of medusae in this extent, if we calculate the length of time that would be requisite, with a certain number of persons, for counting this number. Allowing that one person could count a million in seven days, which is barely possible, it would have required, that 80,000 persons should have started at the creation of the world, to complete the enumeration at the present time...
第 568 頁 - Suddenly, as we were yet creeping along, in a silence which made a heavy breath seem loud and distinct, the woods were at once filled with the tremendous barking roar of the gorilla.
第 213 頁 - This food is grass, or the green stalks of rice ; and it is amusing to see them sitting as it were upright, to cut their hay with their sharp pincers, and then waddling off with their sheaf to their holes, as quickly as their sidelong pace will carry them.
第 22 頁 - I beheld, for the first time, the splendid spectacle of this living fountain vomiting forth from a circular cavity an impetuous torrent of liquid matter, and hurling along, in rapid succession, opaque masses, which it strewed everywhere around. The beauty and novelty of such a scene in the animal kingdom long arrested my attention...
第 44 頁 - From soundings made in the situation where these animals were found, it is probable the sea is upwards of a mile in depth ; but whether these substances occupy the whole depth is uncertain. Provided, however, the depth to which they extend be...
第 404 頁 - That lay like drifted snow upon the soil, Their slender skeletons were seen beneath, So delicately framed, and half transparent, That I have marvell'd how a bird so noble, When in his full magnificent attire, With pinions wider than the king of vultures', And down elastic, thicker than the swan's, Should leave so small a cage of ribs to mark Where vigorous life had dwelt a hundred years.
