Excerpt from A Prospectus of the Water Cure Establishment at Malvern Be it remarked, that in demolishing the assertions of medical men of the drug-school, we have chiefly used their own weapons. We have shown, on the authority of writers recognised by themselves as orthodox, the utter groundlessness of their assertions, and the utter ignorance which dictated them. We have quoted chapter and verse, and, in most in stances, the words of those writers; and it will be necessary to prove the latter to be worthless before the weight of our statements can be diminished by one tittle.

Excerpt from Godfrey Malvern, or the Life of an Author Within a country churchyard, which stood upon the gentle slope of a green hill-side, -its summit crowned with a grey, old, and weather beaten church, - stood a young man dressed in deep mourning; his forehead half buried in the palm of his hand, while his elbow rested on the top of a tall gravestone. The tombstone was partly covered with a rich, short, orange-coloured lichen, such as is often seen on old ruins, or giving an additional beauty to the picturesque in landscape scenery. In the present instance, however, it was fast obliterating the workman ship of some forgotten village-sculpture, and already half concealed a very plump cherub, who with wings placed cross wise on his breast, and huge swollen cheeks, seemed endeavouring in vain to blow away the destructive creepers which were rapidly overgrowing both himself and his stony trumpet. As for the poor inhabitant below, not a letter was visible to tell of either his name or his age; and a. Grim death's-head, that stood grinning from a neighbouring gravestone - as if it had long watched the slow working of decay, -now seemed to gaze in triumph at the victory which Time had once more obtained over Human Vanity.

Excerpt from Lewell Pastures, Vol. 2 of 2 Yesterday morning, on the contrary, when Malvern had gone up alone, as if wishing to have the start of me, Sir Jasper positively refused to see him. NO one was visible but the idiot, and eloquence was wasted upon him. Malvern could not understand a word Of what he said, through the little window by the side of the entrance portal; but the strongest proof was given Of the visit being unwelcome, by the massive door being barred; and neither cajolery nor bribery would induce Thomas to open it.

Excerpt from Final Report on the Battlefield of Gettysburg, Vol. 2 It would take too much time to attempt a description of that fight. In tt we lost in killed and wounded, Deming, Moore, Spencer, Gregory, and a good share of our men. It was fought after dark, and we aimed our muskets at the flash of the enemy's rifles. Towards morning we withdrew, and agatu formed our lines at Malvern Hill. This was a magnificent battle. The enemy were thoroughly whipped, but there was no one in authority to direct. An onward movement; consequently the army fell back to Harrison's Landing. In due, or rather dilatory, course of time, with our corps we were again on the old camp ground of the winter before; then, at Arlington Heights; and finally, after Pope was beaten, we reached Centreville. We ought to have been in the Second Bull Run. One or more people ought to have been killed by slow torture, for this damnable blundering - or worse. Again, movements were started that resulted in the battle of Antietam, where brave fighting was done by piece-meal; where Lee ought to have been crushed, and where he wasn't. In this battle the Sixty-first, I believe, did the most brilliant thing in its career, in the capture of more of the enemy than it had men. And where Captain Greig took a Rebel battle flag. This was due to the generalship of Barlow. Here, on account of a dangerous wound, we parted company with the man who had up to that date given us a special character. Barlow was to lead us as colonel no more. When he rejoined the army, it was as general of a brigade in the Eleventh Corps. It was fortunate for us that the next in command was Nelson A. Miles. It is rare that any regi ment has at one time two such men. While at Harper's Ferry, or on the way to Fredericksburg, a new company, under Captain Bain, reached us, and about doubled our numbers. On Decem ber 13, 1862, we had a losing hand in the slaughter at Fredericksburg. It is said that while we were lying down on the right side of the road, behind the close-board fence, that Miles was prospecting, and had sent back for permis sion to charge the rifle pits beyond. If such is the case it was lucky for us, that a bullet clipped his throat in time to prevent such an heroic act; had it been done, some of us, who to-day can enjoy a good dinner, would have added our names to the list of killed in battle. Miles recovered in time to lead the regiment at Chancellorsville, where he gained great credit by soldiership while in charge of the picket line. Our losses were not heavy in this campaign aside from Miles, who was dangerously wounded and never served again with the regiment. Lieutenant Colonel Broady succeeded him.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

«‹Eine neue Geschichte der Welt› – dieses Buch verdient den Titel voll und ganz.» Peter Frankopan lehrt uns, die Geschichte neu zu sehen – indem er nicht Europa, sondern den Nahen und Mittleren Osten zum Ausgangspunkt macht. Hier entstanden die ersten Hochkulturen und alle drei monotheistischen Weltreligionen; ein Reichtum an Gütern, Kultur und Wissen, der das Alte Europa seit jeher sehnsüchtig nach Osten blicken ließ. Frankopan erzählt von Alexander dem Großen, der Babylon zur Hauptstadt seines neuen Weltreichs machen wollte; von Seide, Porzellan und Techniken wie der Papierherstellung, die über die Handelswege der Region Verbreitung fanden; vom Sklavenhandel mit der islamischen Welt, der Venedig im Mittelalter zum Aufstieg verhalf; von islamischen Gelehrten, die das antike Kulturerbe pflegten, lange bevor Europa die Renaissance erlebte; von der Erschließung der Rohstoffe im 19. Jahrhundert bis hin zum Nahostkonflikt. Schließlich erklärt Frankopan, warum sich die Weltpolitik noch heute in Staaten wie Syrien, Afghanistan und Irak entscheidet. Peter Frankopan schlägt einen weiten Bogen, und das nicht nur zeitlich: Er rückt zwei Welten zusammen, Orient und Okzident, die historisch viel enger miteinander verbunden sind, als wir glauben. Ein so fundiertes wie packend erzähltes Geschichtswerk, das wahrhaft die Augen öffnet.

Excerpt from John Randolph William randolph, gentleman, of Tur key Island, born in 1650, was a native of Warwickshire in England, as his tombstone declares. Of his ancestry nothing is certam known. The cause and the time of his coming to Virginia have been forgotten. The Henrico records show that in 1678 he was clerk of Hen rico County, a man of substance, and married already to Mary Isham; that in 1685 he was Captain William Randolph and Justice of the Peace; that in 1706 he conveyed to son Henry land called by the name of Curles, with Longfield, being all that land at Curles lately belonging to Nathaniel Bacon, Jr. That in 1709 Col. William Randolph of Turkey Island made his will, which mentioned seven sons and two daughters; and finally that in 1711 he died. Turkey Island, just above the junction of the James and Appomattox rivers, lies in a re gion which has sharply attracted the attention of men. In 1675 Nathaniel Bacon lived near by at his plantation called Curles, and in that year Bacon's famous rebellion gave bloody as sociations to the place. About one hundred years afterwards Benedict Arnold, then a gen eral in the British service, made a destructive raid up the James River which drew all eyes to the spot. Neither of these disturbances, his torical as they are, made the region nearly so famous as it became on June 30, 1862, when fifty thousand northern troops, beaten, weary, and disorganized, converged at Malvern Hill and Turkey Island bridge, and the next day fought a battle which saved their army, and perhaps their cause, without a thought or a care for the dust Of forgotten Randolphs on which two armies were trampling in the cradle of their race.
