Industry puts an entirely new face upon the productions of nature By labour man has subjugated the world reduced it to his dominion and clothed the earth with a new garment The first rude plough that man thrust into the soil the first rude axe of stone with which he felled the pine the first rude canoe scooped by him from its trunk to cross the river and reach the greener fields beyond, This book is illustrated br Six years since I published a book entitled The Huguenots their Settlements Churches and Industries in England and Ireland Its object was to give an account of the causes which led to the large migrations of foreign Protestants from Flanders and France into England and to describe their effects upon English industry as well as English history It was necessary to give a brief r sum of the history of the Reformation in France down to the dispersion of the Huguenots and the suppression of the Protestant religion by Louis XIV under the terms of the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes Under that Act the profession of Protestantism was proclaimed to be illegal and subject to the severest penalties Hence many of the French Protestants who refused to be converted and had the means of emigrating were under the necessity of leaving France and endeavoring to find personal freedom and religious liberty elsewhere The refugees found protection in various countries The principal portion of the emigrants from Languedoc and the South Eastern provinces of France crossed the frontier into Switzerland and settled there or afterwards proceeded into the states of Prussia Holland and Denmark as well as into England and Ireland The chief number of emigrants from the Northern and Western seaboard provinces of France emigrated directly into England Ireland America and the Cape of Good Hope In my previous work I endeavored to give as accurate a description as was possible of the emigrants who settled in England and Ireland to which the American editor of the work the Hon G P Disosway has added an account of those who settled in the United States of America br, No description available, George Stephenson did not invent the steam engine that was due to Newcomen and later to James Watt He did not invent the steam locomotive that was due to a number of people including Cugnot Trevithick and others He did not invent the Railway Railways or tramways had been in use for two hundred years before Stephenson br br The reason why Stephenson was known as The father of the steam locomotive was that he took a primitive unreliable and wholly uneconomic device and turning it into an efficient machine not very different to those which ran until fifty or so years ago married it with the iron rail and alone and against considerable opposition began via the Stockton and Darlington Railway the Liverpool and Manchester Railway and then the London and Birmingham Railway the development of steam railways in England and the world br br George Stephenson began life in in the worst and poorest of all circumstances he did not learn to read until he was twenty years old but he together with his son Robert became the foremost engineers in the railway world br br If in the middle years of the nineteenth century you wanted to build a railway then if you wanted it big bold and imaginative you might go to Mr Brunel If you wanted it to pay however you would go to the Sephensons Summary by AJM
