essay hammer about. If, in order to cut short any question of this kind, we distinguish two kinds of quantity, the one intensive, which admits only of a “more or less,” the other extensive, which lends itself to measurement, we are not far from siding with Fechner and the psychophysicists. The distinction will be obvious if we revert to the succession of figures which constitute the ratio ?. There seems to be here some radical mistake in Mr. Lord Bathurst says, ‘Let them come;’—and they will come when we have a servile people, dead to liberty, and an arbitrary government, hating and ready to betray it! This I endeavoured to show in a former volume. [Sidenote: The hide of four yardlands agricultural.] Now, this system of settling tenants on yardlands by allotting to each a pair of oxen, so that four of them should be able to combine in forming the common plough-team of the hide, obviously belongs to a time when agriculture had become sufficiently important for the unit of occupation and so of gafol-paying and services to be generally agricultural rather than pastoral.

Though it is hard to believe that any such expressions, when used for purposes of ordinary life, attain at all near enough to any conventional standard to be worth discussion; yet in the special case of a jury, acting under the direct influence of a judge, it seems quite possible that their deliberate assertion that they are ‘fully convinced’ may reach somewhat more nearly to a tolerably fixed standard than ordinary outsiders would at first think likely.

A propos d’un article de Mr. Every inch of ground they gained they believed to be saved from an imminent destruction. A diagram illustrative of this number of results was given in _Nature_ (Sept. It seems putting them to unnecessary trouble to transmit a self-evident truth (which it is upon the spot) a thousand miles (where it becomes a discovery).

Suppose by way of working hypothesis that such was the case, that Shakespeare was a pen-name of Bacon’s. An argument fit for great and mighty princes to have in their hand; to the end, that neither by overmeasuring their forces, they lose themselves in vain enterprises: nor, on the other side, by undervaluing them, they descend to fearful and pusillanimous counsels.

They are interesting, however, as reminding us again that the system of oath-helpers was not absent from Kentish custom. We are sluggish, and must be lifted up to the heights of a factitious enthusiasm by the complicated machinery of a powerful imagination: we are obstinate, not to say selfish, and require to be urged over the abyss of mental anguish by the utmost violence of terror and pity. [Sidenote: The underlying assumptions and the process by which Fechner’s Law is reached.] We shall distinguish several different artifices in the process of transition from Weber’s experiments, or from any other series of similar observations, to a psychophysical law like Fechner’s. Here our conclusions may have been perfectly sound under the given circumstances, that is, they may be such as every one else would have drawn who was bound to make up his mind upon the data before us, and they are unquestionably ‘relative’ judgments in the sense now under discussion.

The ascent for some way was striking and full of novelty; but on turning a corner of the road we entered upon a narrow defile or rocky ledge, overlooking a steep valley under our feet, with a headlong turbid stream dashing down it, and spreading itself out into a more tranquil river below, a dark wood of innumerable pine-trees covering the side of the valley opposite, with broken crags, morasses, and green plots of cultivated ground, orchards, and quiet homesteads, on which the sun glanced its farewell rays through the openings of the mountains. it is a ‘lily-livered,’ polished, courtly, pious monument to the fears that have so long beset the hearts of Monarchs, to the pale apparitions of Kings dethroned or beheaded in time past or to come (from that sad example) to the crimson flush of victory, which has put out the light of truth, and to the reviving hope of that deathless night of ignorance and superstition, when they shall once more reign as Gods upon the earth, and make of their enemies their footstool!

Soetbeer endeavoured to show, and with considerable force, that the introduction into the Lex Salica of the round numbers of denarii–forty to the solidus–was of comparatively late date; and if this hypothesis be correct, then it may be that Charlemagne was appealing to an earlier Frankish custom of reckoning 12 silver denarii or drachm?
