This leaves more than ,, gallons of wine for home consumption, or about 21 gallons for each inhabitant for the year. Wine, as a beverage, is universally used here by all classes. The strong liquors are chiefly for exportation; hence, you see very little drunkenness in la belle France. The disease of the vine in France has for the last two years been very destructive, and it has greatly diminished the production of wine.
This is on the increase, and fears are entertained that it may totally destroy the vine. Under this apprehension, may not the subject of vine culture legitimately and appropriately attract the attention of our Southern and South-western planters? Many of our Southern lands, I opine, are peculiarly adapted to the vine, and from natural sterility or other causes are unsuited to products requiring richer and stronger soils.
The lands of southern Europe employed by the vine are light and sterile, unsuited to wheat and other grains. If our Southern farmers would, at this time more especially, turn their attention to this subject, would it not ensure to their own individual interests, enhance the national wealth, and be promotive of national temperance by the introduction into general use of a cheap beverage, that would ultimately root out those "villainous spirits," whose baneful influence is felt throughout the length and breadth of our land?
In regard to the vine and its diseases in Europe, should the present condition of things continue for a few years, would it be the strangest fact in the history of commerce, if our favored country should become the exporter instead of the importer of wine?
Such a result would restore the vine to its pristine value, as one of the good gifts of God. French sailing vessel has a narrow escape from a thunderbolt during a storm at sea. Artist: Ales. About half later returned. Some went to America, others to Russia.

It was Captain Semmes' intention to drydock his ship and receive repairs at the French port. The Kearsarge was armed with two inch mm smoothbore Dahlgren guns which fired approximately pounds of solid shot, four pound guns and one pounder Parrott rifle. She was manned by around sailors and officers.
During the battle, more than forty Confederate sailors were killed in action or drowned. Another seventy or so were picked up by Kearsarge. Thirty or so were rescued by the Deerhound , a British yacht, which Captain Winslow asked to help evacuate Alabama's crew, and three French pilot boats. Captain Semmes and fourteen of his officers were among the sailors rescued by Deerhound. Instead of delivering the Confederates to Kearsarge, the Deerhound set a course for Southampton, thus enabling Captain Semmes' escape. The Confederates got away and avoided imprisonment. Three men were wounded aboard the United States' vessel, one of whom died the following day.
In , France was ravaged by the war with Germany and by civil commotions. The idea of regaining the lost provinces Alsace and Lorraine, was spreading across the political spectrum. The idea that France was able to rebuild its image out of its frontiers through the conquest of a colonial empire and restore its national pride was gaining ground in the Republican left. A wave of French emigrants left France, largely for North America.
In , Gambetta declared: "To return to its rank, France must not accept self-effacement. It is through expansion, through influence in the outside life, through the place we take in the general life of mankind that the nations become perennial and lasting; if this life were to stop, it would be over for France. This policy was particularly embodied by Jules Ferry who entered in the government in , as minister of Foreign Affairs, minister of State Education, and President of the Council.
From , he imprinted a decisive orientation to France s foreign policy and amongst other, he supported Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza's expeditions, which included Discovery of Ogooue; The French Congo and Colonization of the Congo from to The bay is noted for its sudden, severe storms and its strong currents. The rocky northeastern and southern coasts of Biscay are irregular with many good harbors and numerous offshore islands.
The southeastern shore is straight and sandy. Nantes and Bordeaux, at the head of the Loire and Garonne estuaries, respectively, in France, are also reached by oceangoing ships.

There are several resorts along the French coast, notably Biarritz. Of the crew of twenty-two men, twenty were drowned. The port began to function as an emigration port at the end of the Napoleonic wars, when mass movement once again became possible. As elsewhere, boarding passengers was a by-product of commercial shipments. As ship travel gained importance due to world-wide immigration patterns, the docks at Le Havre were enlarged to accommodate the increased steamboat traffic, initially on the Seine.

He absolutely relegated the old philosophical psychology, subjective in its method and sterile in its results, to the museum of the history of ideas [ 2 ]. He explained that all philosophical doctrines have been necessary, and thus legitimate, in their time. They were true as long as they reflected the diverse states of the human spirit that was contemplating them, and then old hypotheses made way to younger ones. His mind was fixed in the anatomo-physiological conception of psychology.
He had scant regard for any mental or psychological phenomena, which could not be related to a neuroanatomical substrate [ 4 ]. At the base of the production of intelligence and mind he believed that there existed only physico-chemical, or mechanical, phenomena; he saw no difference between the human brain and the ape brain [ 5 ]. It formed a critical history of progress in cerebral physiology by means of experimental lesions and excitation methods fig. A revised edition was published within a year [ 30 ].
The book, dedicated to the memory of Paul Bert, was structured in 2 parts, covering the School of Strasbourg first pages and the Italian School subsequent pages. The subject matter extended from the advances made in , with the discovery by Fritsch and Hitzig of the excitability of the cerebral cortex onwards, and methodically detailed the experiments of Ferrier, Goltz, Luciani, Tamburini, Exner, Munk, Carville and Duret, Schiff, Gudden, Bekhterev, Monakow, Loeb, and so on.
Both parts were rounded off with a chapter on the functions of intelligence, the theme at the center of Soury's occupation with the brain. Of particular interest is a reply by Camillo Golgi, dated March 15, , to a perplexed Cesare Lombroso, with regard to the anatomical nature of the mind as exposed by the naturalist Georges Pouchet [ 31 ]. Soury reproduces Golgi's letter in its entirety pages in the first edition and pages in the second edition [ 30 ].
Golgi notes that the only anatomy he sees in Pouchet's paper is in the title and judges the entire writing to be una fantasia anatomo-fisiologica. Soury covered the history of brain research from Aristotle and Galen to Descartes and from Willis to Fritsch and Hitzig; the general role of the cerebral cortex, intelligence and comparative psychology; cortical centers of association and motor and sensory areas; and the nervous conduction. Lower right, motor regions or tactile sphere of the cortical convexity of the human brain. The work was based on the Sorbonne course that Soury taught on the history of physiological psychology.
The author dedicated the book to the memory of his mother and his father. Devoted to the history of neurology when it was still struggling for recognition as a medical specialty, this remarkable book represented the explosion of knowledge in the late 19th century, and the marvels of cortical localization in particular [ 1 ].
Committed republic and pacifist
Soury reached a height of scholarship, which made him the first and, to this day, the most comprehensive writer on the history of the brain and mind sciences. The 2 volumes together weigh 4. The first volume ends at page The second volume begins at page and ends at page At the end of the main corpus, the Contents occupy 67 pages and the Author Index 13 pages.
The first pages trace the history of brain research.
A portrait of Édouard Laboulaye
The book begins with Alcmaeon of Croton, the first thinker who, around B. Each period is discussed from the anatomical, physiological, anatomo-pathological, and clinical perspectives. Here the historian is transformed into a versed neuroanatomist and neurologist, including major discoveries in France and abroad, although careful not to cross into the psychiatric domain.
The work of Monsieur J. Soury has no equivalent in any country and represents an extraordinary work and range of knowledge … Having read Monsieur Soury's book, one realizes the immense service rendered by the author to his generation, because we can now have a full picture of the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system since Antiquity, embracing in a synthetic view the progressive march of human knowledge'.
The naturalist Rudolf Burckhardt , Professor of Zoology at the University of Basel with a special interest in evolutionary neuroanatomy, commented that, until then, a complete understanding of the concept of the world, and its relationship with philosophy and theology in neurological terms was lacking. Since Soury's main criterion was the relationship of the brain to the mind, the basal ganglia and the spinal cord, for example, left him rather cold [ 1 ].
On the other hand, he devoted room to neither Hippolyte Berhneim and the School of Nancy nor to Freud, as he saw no value in either psychosomatic medicine or psychoanalysis [ 2 ]. It is not known if the translation is by Lenz, who was fluent in French. Conceivably, Lenz might have been assisted by Cornelius G. Dyke of the Neurological Institute of New York, a pioneer neuroradiologist, scholar, painter and theologian, and Leo M.
Davidoff of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, a pioneer neurosurgeon, who co-authored the chapter on the nervous system in Lenz's book on clinical radiotherapy [ 53 ]. The hypotheses of Mr. Duval and myself suffer a major drawback: they rely on supposition, and not on proof of the existence of rapid contractions occurring in the elements of the grey matter'. The first letter pertains to the concept of neuronal amoeboidism , an overview of which, as well as of the related theories, was given by Cajal [ 55 , 57 ]. I am sending the circular that I am going to direct to my editors begging to seduce you with the temptation to write a brief synthesis of your doctrines for the new collection Scientia.
I take this opportunity to return the fond memories and to request the third issue of your great work El sistema nervioso del hombre y de los vertebrados. My book is finished; I reached page and I only have a few hundred leaves to proofread and reach, I hope, pages. The work will appear in the 20th century, although I compiled it in the 19th. I am perfectly aware of the value of your works as not to warn that I would be cautious before deciding, if I do, to give anything to the publishers.
I am informing you. I know nothing. The invitation that I am sending has no other intention than, if conditions convince you, to encourage you to write a few pages which we can take advantage of in France and outside France. If you agree, I would be honored to act as an intermediary in the negotiations. I would wish to know, before reproducing the comments you have on the work, if you approve the theory, i.
If you do not have at hand that work, do not get in the trouble of searching for it, I shall send you another copy. But I would not want to misinterpret your thought and I would therefore wish that the readers of my book might be able to know the last word of your scientific opinion on this issue of utmost biological philosophy. In the original edition of Textura [ 57 ], Cajal had already cited 2 of Soury's articles on the neuron theory [ 40 , 41 ].
