Página 126 - All matter appears to be subject to the magnetic force as universally as it is to the gravitating, the electric and the chemical or cohesive forces...
Página 156 - That, in order to complete the general chain of narrow gauge communication from the north of England to the southern coast, any suitable measure should be promoted to form a narrow gauge link from Oxford to Reading, and thence to Basingstoke, or by any shorter route connecting the proposed Rugby and Oxford line with the South- Western Railway.
Página 136 - If it fall obliquely, it will be reflected obliquely in the opposite direction ; and in all cases the angle of incidence will be equal to the angle of reflection. This is the fundamental law of Catoptrics, or reflected light.

Some things are obvious as soon as they are made public ; of others, the scientific world may possess itself by analysis ; some inventions almost baffle discovery. But to entitle a man to a patent, the invention must be new to the world.
Página 124 - The following is the order in which the several divisions of the subject treated of in this section of the author's researches in electricity, succeed one another: — 1. Apparatus required. 2. Action of magnets on heavy glass. 3. Action of magnets on other substances acting magnetically on light. 4. Action of magnets on the metals generally. 5. Action of magnets on the magnetic metals and their compounds. 6. Action of magnets on air and gases. 7. General considerations. In giving an account of the...
Página 301 - The reason wherefore such a privilege is good in law, is, because the inventor bringeth to and for the commonwealth a new manufacture, by his invention, costs, and charges, and, therefore, it is reason that he should have a privilege for his reward, (and the encouragement of others in the like, ) for a convenient time.
