The Popular Cyclopaedia of Natural Science s intended to serve s a guide to those who are inclined to make the wonders of the vegetable kingdom an object of their regard, either as a source of recreation, or with those higher views to which the student of Natural History can scarcely avoid being led. For although no doubt can be entertained by the reflecting mind, that the power, wisdom, and Goodness of the creator are everywhere operating with equal energy, whether in the simple but majestic arrangement of the heavenly bodies, or in those changes by which our own, globe, is rendered fit for the habitation of such innumerable multitudes of living beings, no one cane help feeling that it is in the structure and actions of these beings themselves, that these attributes are more evidently manifested to the intelligent observer. And although the animal kingdom has usually been regarded as affording more remarkable instances of their display than the vegetable world, it may be doubled whether, when the latter is more closely examined, it will not appear equally or yet more wonderful;-the simplicity of the means being most strikingly contrasted with the vastness of the ends attained.
