WE HAVE DONE THE STATE SOME SERVICE,AND THEY KNOW IT.
Tranfactions of the Linnean Society. Volume V. 4to. PP. 296. Il. Is. in Boards. White. London. 1800.
HAT this is one of the most refpectable scientific Societies in the kingdom, it would be fuperfluous in us to remark. Supported by talents, learning, industry, rank, and fortune, the fuccefs of fuch an affociation, in all views and researches, feems placed beyond the power of accident.
The volume before us would appear, from a bare enumeration of its contents, to be equally deferving of public attention, with the first four; which have been received as productions worthy the disciples of Linneus. It contains thirty-one articles.
In his Obfervations on the Ranunculus aquatilis," Dr. Pulteney informs us, that—
"the diftilled water of the R. Flammula, or Leffer Spearwort, as we are informed by Dr. Withering, is an emetic more inftantaneous, and lefs offenfive during its action, than white vitriol; and, as if Nature had furnished an antidote to poison from among poifons of its own tribe, is to be preferred in promoting the inftant expulfion of deleterious fubftances from the ftomach."
