Not illustrated. 1841 Excerpt: .from the plant in the Horticultural Garden. But such an assertion is destitute of all proof: and Dr. Royle by no means supports it; he who had such ample means of studying Indian firs in their native mountains, merely says that the opinions of Mr. Lambert and Professor Don, lead him to suppose there may be some ambiguity on the subject. Certainly then the Abies Morinda of the Horticultural Garden is not A. Smithiana, whatever that may prove to be. Mr. Gordon says that the cones of A. Smithiana are not half the size of those of A. Khutrow. Now the cones of the latter are figured by Dr. Royle, and measure as nearly as may be 6 inches in length; the cones of the former, as figured by Dr. Wallich are 5 inches 6-10ths and a half long; a difference which in such matters amounts to nothing. It is clear therefore that the cones Mr. Gordon has examined are not cones of A. Smithiana at all, which is also confirmed by his statement that the young seedlings of what he calls A. Smithiana, are much slenderer and smaller than those of A. Morinda; a circumstance completely at variance with the character of the former species. That the Chiswick plant is A. Khutrow is asserted positively by Dr. Royle, who says he immediately recognised it. And its foliage corresponds with that represented at t. 14 of his illustrations. While, however, Mr. Gordon seems wrong in his supposition that the Abies Morinda of the Horticultural Garden is A. Smithiana, he is certainly right in saying that he has two distinct kinds of cones of the Abies genus from British India. There are doubtless two Himalayan Spruces, of which one may be called A. Khutrow, while the other bears the name of A. Morinda; but to which the old plant in the Horticultural Garden belongs cannot be determined for the present. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781130776911

It has, with capital raised in England, caused railways to be constructed, so as to connect and bind together all the principal places throughout the continent, with many engineering works of the first magnitude, viaducts over big rivers and broad floodbasins, and inclines with stiff gradients up mountain-sides. It has carried out scientific work of magnitude yet of intricacy and minuteness in the trigonometrical survey, the geological survey, the Botanical Gardens, the meteorological observations. Such, in the most brief and rapid summary, is what British rule has heretofore essayed to do and actually done. It is daily attempting and accomplishing more and more, never satisfied with progress made up to date, but ever striving to advance further. In the next chapter I shall consider how far the results in regard to the national condition have been commensurate with all this action. CHAPTER X PROGRESS OF INDIA UNDER BRITISH RULE Remarkable increase of population--Yet the density per square mile not great--Expansion and improvement of cultivation--Irrigation by canals--Property in land--Public health and sanitation--Mitigation or prevention of famine--Old industries disappearing and new ones springing up--Jute and cotton, tea and coffee--Coal mines--Ocean-borne trade, coasting traffic, river navigation--State revenues and receipts--Public debt--Disposition ef the people towards British rule--Progress of Christianity among the natives--National education--Disturbing elements politically--Some fanaticism and bigotry--Causes of discontent--Countervailing causes of loyalty--Net result favourable--Permanent and inevitable dangers--Need of watchfulness.

A pretty shrub, of a very ramous character, common in the Peninsula, bearing large yellow flowers, and opposite thorns in the axils of the branches. It forms an elegant and excellent fence in the gardens of Bombay. Graham. ) Rumphius wrote of this plant, Frutex stipitosus qui sese sursum explicat in longos et flagellosos ramos. There are many ornamental plants which we often observe arranged in straight lines, forming inner fences or shady avenues in Eastern gardens. These are the Lawsonia inermis, the Hennah plant of Egypt (Mendi), resembling the English privet. The Lonicera ligustrina, Wall, (privet-like honeysuckle), is much used at Ootacamund, and answers well, forming a very compact fence about gardens. (Wight. ) The lime, mulberry and pomegranate are suitable, and have been long in use; likewise the Hibiscus rosa sinensis, L. (shoeflower), Adhatoda vasica and Betonica, Nees, Gardenia florida (Gundha raj), Allamanda cathartica, and c. Phyllanthus reticulata, Poir. (P. Vitis-Idaa, Rox. ), found wild in every part of India, and seems to thrive well in all soils and situations. It is frequently employed for ornamental hedges in gardens, for which end it is well chosen, as its thick evergreen foliage and constant succession of beautiful red berries give it a pretty appearance. I am not familiar with this in southern India, except as a small jungle tree. Pedilanthus tithymaloides, Poit. (the slipper plant) is much planted as a border for gardens, taking the place of box. Neither goats nor cows will touch it. The following are also used for garden borders: --Graptophyllum hortense Justicia picta) with its variegated leaves; Vinca rosea, Willd. , common all over India; Heliotropium curassavicum, L. , domesticated at Bangalore; . .

Also to one of the stations of the Israelites in the wilderness--Rimmon-parez (Numb, xxxiii. 19). Saul encamped under a pomegranate tree, which must have been near to the Rock of Rimmon (1 Sam. xiv. 2). The Egyptians prized and cultivated the pomegranate in their gardens; and, as already hinted, it was well known to the ancients. Pliny mentions varieties of the fruit, the use of the blossoms for dyeing, of the rind for tanning leather (as now in Morocco), and of both fruit and flowers in medicine. Grenada in Spain is supposed to have derived its name from the pomum granatum or seeded fruit, and the arms of the province are said to be a split pomegranate. The tree flourishes in the West India islands, into which it was long since introduced; but its native area extends from the Himalayas to the Caucasus. The pomegranate is too delicate a plant for any but the warmest parts of our own island; and even there it is cultivated simply for its foliage and flowers. It was introduced about 1548, and is mentioned by Lord Bacon, who recommends the juice of the sweet varieties of the fruit as a remedy for disorders of the liver. The rind of the fruit, and the root, are still prescribed, in the form of decoctions, by English physicians. Sycamine (Gk. ovmMos). Sycomore (Heb. shikmah, Gk. iTVKOfiapata). Ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up. --Luke xvii. 6. The sycomore trees that are in the vale. --I Kings x. 27. In giving almost identical names to the mulberry (crvKaiMvos) and the sycomore-fig (crvKonopov), the old Greeks were not led into any serious botanical error; for both the figs and the mulberries are classed by most botanists in the same order of plants.

Syst. ii. 212. The genus Gaylussacia, so named after M. Gay Lussac, the eminent French Chemist and Philosopher, differs from Vaccinium in the same way as Arctostaphylos from Arbutus--it has but a single seed in each cell. The species are chiefly found in Brazil, where they are common, Peru, and the North of India, and among them are several which, as this species shews, would be worth introducing to cultivation. G. Pseudovaccinium is stated to be a native of sandy open plains in Brazil. Auguste de St. Hilaire says that he found it on the coast from the city of Caravellos in the Province of Porto Seguro as far as the island of St. Catharine, and that it forms a shrub from one to two and a half feet hijh. At least it is to be presumed that this is the plant he means, December, 1844. 2 c although he describes the corolla as somewhat narrow, and the ovary as 5-celled with 1-seeded cells. . .

It is a good herbaceous plant, remarkable for the neat ness of its foliage and flowers. Sometimes its leaves are qunate, as represented in the plate. The Thermopsis labumifolia of Mr. Don, which has also been named Thermopsis napaulensis by M. Decandolle, is, as we have shewn in the Transactions of the Horticultural Society, a genuine species of Anagyris, and should be called Anagyris indica. Easily increased by division of its creeping roots. A perennial, growing 2 or 3 feet high, with creeping roots. Stem erect, flexuose. Leaves 3-leaved, sometimes 5-leaved; stipules ovate, leafy; leaflets oblong, obtuse, or obovate, minutely downy beneath, with smooth veins.

A curious new species, introduced in 1824 by the Honourable Court of Directors of the East India Company, by whom it was presented to the Horticultural Society, in whose Garden at Chiswick our drawing was made in June 1827. A tender stove plant, extremely different in habit from the common T. coronaria, of the agreeable perfume of which it is entirely destitute. Propagated by cuttings. Dr. Wallich has been so kind as to favour us with the following interesting account of this and the other Indian species; the greater part either wholly new, or now described for the first time. J. L. I am in some doubt as to the part of India from which this pretty shrub was introduced into the Honourable Companys Botanic Garden at Calcutta. I suspect, however, that it was brought from Ceylon, as I have seen a specimen in the Herbarium of my friend Mr. Lindley, which was collected on that island by Mr. MRae. The following are the Bast Indian species of TaberniBmontana that have come under my own observation: --1. T. coronaria. Willi. This is a very common shrub in gardens all over India, both single and double. I have found it seemingly wild in the forests of Lower Nipal, about Hetounda, and at Singapore. 2. T. recurva. Roxb.

But such an assertion is destitute of all proof: and Dr. Royle by no means supports it; he who had such ample means of studying Indian firs in their native mountains, merely says that the opinions of Mr. Lambert and Professor Don, lead him to suppose there may be some ambiguity on the subject. Certainly then the Abies Morinda of the Horticultural Garden is not A. Smithiana, whatever that may prove to be. Mr. Gordon says that the cones of A. Smithiana are not half the size of those of A. Khutrow. Now the cones of the latter are figured by Dr. Royle, and measure as nearly as may be 6 inches in length; the cones of the former, as figured by Dr. Wallich are 5 inches 6-10ths and a half long; a difference which in such matters amounts to nothing. It is clear therefore that the cones Mr. Gordon has examined are not cones of A. Smithiana at all, which is also confirmed by his statement that the young seedlings of what he calls A. Smithiana, are much slenderer and smaller than those of A. Morinda; a circumstance completely at variance with the character of the former species. That the Chiswick plant is A. Khutrow is asserted positively by Dr. Royle, who says he immediately recognised it. And its foliage corresponds with that represented at t. 14 of his illustrations. While, however, Mr. Gordon seems wrong in his supposition that the Abies Morinda of the Horticultural Garden is A. Smithiana, he is certainly right in saying that he has two distinct kinds of cones of the Abies genus from British India. There are doubtless two Himalayan Spruces, of which one may be called A. Khutrow, while the other bears the name of A. Morinda; but to which the old plant in the Horticultural Garden belongs cannot be determined for the present. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781130776911

A pretty shrub, of a very ramous character, common in the Peninsula, bearing large yellow flowers, and opposite thorns in the axils of the branches. It forms an elegant and excellent fence in the gardens of Bombay. Graham.) Rumphius wrote of this plant, Frutex stipitosus qui sese sursum explicat in longos et flagellosos ramos. There are many ornamental plants which we often observe arranged in straight lines, forming inner fences or shady avenues in Eastern gardens. These are the Lawsonia inermis, the Hennah plant of Egypt (Mendi), resembling the English privet. The Lonicera ligustrina, Wall, (privet-like honeysuckle), is much used at Ootacamund, and answers well, forming a very compact fence about gardens. (Wight.) The lime, mulberry and pomegranate are suitable, and have been long in use; likewise the Hibiscus rosa sinensis, L. (shoeflower), Adhatoda vasica and Betonica, Nees, Gardenia florida (Gundha raj), Allamanda cathartica, c. Phyllanthus reticulata, Poir. (P. Vitis-Idaa, Rox.), found wild in every part of India, and seems to thrive well in all soils and situations. It is frequently employed for ornamental hedges in gardens, for which end it is well chosen, as its thick evergreen foliage and constant succession of beautiful red berries give it a pretty appearance. I am not familiar with this in southern India, except as a small jungle tree. Pedilanthus tithymaloides, Poit. (the slipper plant) is much planted as a border for gardens, taking the place of box. Neither goats nor cows will touch it. The following are also used for garden borders: --Graptophyllum hortense Justicia picta) with its variegated leaves; Vinca rosea, Willd., common all over India; Heliotropium curassavicum, L., domesticated at Bangalore;.

Saul encamped under a pomegranate tree, which must have been near to the Rock of Rimmon (1 Sam. xiv. 2). The Egyptians prized and cultivated the pomegranate in their gardens; and, as already hinted, it was well known to the ancients. Pliny mentions varieties of the fruit, the use of the blossoms for dyeing, of the rind for tanning leather (as now in Morocco), and of both fruit and flowers in medicine. Grenada in Spain is supposed to have derived its name from the pomum granatum or seeded fruit, and the arms of the province are said to be a split pomegranate. The tree flourishes in the West India islands, into which it was long since introduced; but its native area extends from the Himalayas to the Caucasus. The pomegranate is too delicate a plant for any but the warmest parts of our own island; and even there it is cultivated simply for its foliage and flowers. It was introduced about 1548, and is mentioned by Lord Bacon, who recommends the juice of the sweet varieties of the fruit as a remedy for disorders of the liver. The rind of the fruit, and the root, are still prescribed, in the form of decoctions, by English physicians. Sycamine (Gk. ovm/Mos). Sycomore (Heb. shikmah, Gk. iTVKOfiapata). Ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up. --Luke xvii. 6. The sycomore trees that are in the vale. --I Kings x. 27. In giving almost identical names to the mulberry (crvKaiMvos) and the sycomore-fig (crvKonopov), the old Greeks were not led into any serious botanical error; for both the figs and the mulberries are classed by most botanists in the same order of plants.

Syst. ii. 212. The genus Gaylussacia, so named after M. Gay Lussac, the eminent French Chemist and Philosopher, differs from Vaccinium in the same way as Arctostaphylos from Arbutus--it has but a single seed in each cell. The species are chiefly found in Brazil, where they are common, Peru, and the North of India, and among them are several which, as this species shews, would be worth introducing to cultivation. G. Pseudovaccinium is stated to be a native of sandy open plains in Brazil. Auguste de St. Hilaire says that he found it on the coast from the city of Caravellos in the Province of Porto Seguro as far as the island of St. Catharine, and that it forms a shrub from one to two and a half feet hijh. At least it is to be presumed that this is the plant he means, December, 1844. 2 c although he describes the corolla as somewhat narrow, and the ovary as 5-celled with 1-seeded cells.

The use of plants as source of medicines and human sustenance has been in vogue since antiquity. India has a rich heritage of use of plants as medicines. Indian systems of medicines utilize 80 percent of the material derived out of plants. There are over 2500 plant species in India having documented medicinal value. Global estimates indicate that 80 percent of population can not afford the products of the western pharmaceutical industry and have to rely upon the use of traditional medicines mainly derived from plants. The literature on medicinal plants is quite vast scattered and not available at one place. A great necessity was felt to have relevant literature at one place providing multi disciplinary information on such resources. The book is based on personal explorations made by the author in all parts of Himachal Pradesh supported by collections identification compilation of information on traditional knowledge gathered during surveys covering status of existing resources utilization potential conservation needs cultivation efforts in herbal gardens and establishment of Herbaria at IRISM Jogindernagar and at Dr. Y.S. Parmar University of Horticulture & Forestry Nauni Solan. The book covers around 700 species of medicinal and aromatic plants of Himachal Pradesh representative of not only the western Himalaya but also of the entire Hindu Kush Himalayan region. The plants described in detail cover Latin name family common and local names distribution in Himachal Pradesh description of the plant parts used market rate chemical constituents formulations uses and cultivation notes. Sketches and colour photographs in the book will facilitate identity and comprehension by the readers. Appendices include information on commercial plants available for trade and drug industry annual outturn of raw material during the past five years endangered species plants for phyto chemical industry dhoop and incense tans and dyes essential oils plants causing health hazards having ethnomedical importance and the species suitable for incorporation in cropping systems in different climatic zones of the state. Separate chapters have been devoted to collection cultivation and policy issues. This book will serve as a useful companion to the students researchers teachers industrialists collectors cultivators foresters planners nature lovers those interested in biodiversity of the Himalayan regions and above all the students and practitioners of Indian systems of medicines Ayurveda Unani Homoeopathy Pharmacognosy and Ethnomedicines.
