but him,' means, take him away and there is nobody
present. ``There is nobody here besides him,' means,
hi is present and by the side of, or in addition to,
him is nobody. ``Few ladies, except her Majesty, could
have made themselves heard.' In this example, besides
should be used, not except. ExceptExcept Ex*cept", v. t. [imp. & p. p. Excepted; p. pr. & vb.
