Thus the sun shining on a morning fog, dissipates it; clouds are seen to waste in a sun-shiny day.

The earth, turning on its axis in about twenty-four hours, the equatorial parts must move about fifteen miles in each minute; in northern and southern latitudes this motion is gradually less to the poles, and there nothing.

Some of the salt-water, as the tide wave enters the river, runs from its top and fore side, and mixes with the fresh, and also pushes it back up the river.

"--This I think is not true; but that the body 2 _a_ moved by the force 1 _f_ (though the eye may judge otherwise of it) does really move with the same celerity as it did when impelled by the same force; for 2 _a_ is compounded of 1 _a_ + 1 _a_: and if each of the 1 _a_'s or each part of the compound were made to move with 1 _c_ (as they might be by 2 _f_) then the whole would move with 2 _c_, and not with 1 _c_, as our author supposes.

In soft or hot iron the fluid of magnetism is naturally diffused equally; when within the influence of the magnet it is drawn to one end of the iron, made denser there and rarer at the other.

In a former paper[54] I have already explained the descending currents of air in cold funnels; it may not be amiss however to repeat here, that funnels without fires have an effect, according to their degree of coldness or warmth, on the air that happens to be contained.

I have thus gone through all the common causes of the smoking of chimneys that I can at present recollect as having fallen under my observation; communicating the remedies that I have known successfully used for the different cases, together with the principles on which both the disease and the remedy depend, and confessing my ignorance wherever I have been sensible of it.

This is done by grinding them round from the neck towards the brim, the breadth of one or two inches, as may be required; often trying the glass by a well tuned harpsichord, comparing the tone drawn from the glass by your finger, with the note you want, as sounded by that string of the harpsichord.

In common acceptation, indeed, only an agreeable _succession_ of sounds is called _melody_, and only the _co-existence_ of agreeable sounds, _harmony_.

The whites, who have slaves, not labouring; are enfeebled, and therefore not so generally prolific; the slaves being worked too hard, and ill fed, their constitutions are broken, and the deaths among them are more than the births; so that a continual supply is needed from Africa.
