Madam Esmond would have found the fellow out for a vulgar quack but for her sons' opposition, which she, on her part, opposed with her own indomitable will.

And if but a grave fellow in a velvet jacket, a band, and a black coat, which was the habit those quack-conjurers generally went in, was but seen in the streets the people would follow them in crowds, and ask them questions as they went along.
И чуть только какой-нибудь мрачный тип в бархатном камзоле с пояском и в черном плаще (а именно такой наряд эти квазиволшебники обычно носили) показывался на улице, люди шли за ним толпой и осаждали вопросами прямо на ходу.

The stuff that was coming out of him consisted of words, but it was not speech in the true sense: it was a noise uttered in unconsciousness, like the quacking of a duck.
Извержение состояло из слов, но не было речью в подлинном смысле, это был шум, производимый в бессознательном состоянии, утиное кряканье.

Some there are, and very successful too, mere quacks and fools: and it was to combat and expose such as those, no doubt, that Laughter was made.
Преуспевают в жизни и другие - шарлатаны и дураки, и вот для борьбы с такими-то людьми и для их обличения, несомненно, и создан Смех!

The ducks hovered over our heads; some seemed disposed to settle near us, but suddenly rose up into the air and flew away quacking.
Утки носились над нашими головами; иные собирались сесть подле нас, но вдруг поднимались кверху, как говорится, «колом», и с криком улетали.
