The Infidel and His Daughter. [Newspaper Article] — Mariposa Gazette — 1 January 1861

The Infidel and His Daughter. " ' .<•« suggested by reading a newspaper paragraph describing the scene between brave old Ethan Allen and his daugnter, on the eve of her death, when she asked the stern infidel in whose faith he would have her die—his or her mother's ] "The damps of death are coming fast, My father, o'er my brow ; The pant, with all its scenes, has fled, And I must turn me row To that dim future which in vain My feeble eyes descry: Tell me. my father, in this hour, 1 n whose stern faith to die 7 "In thine? I've watched the scornful smile, And heard thy withering tone, Whene'er the Christian's humble hope Was placed above thine own; I've li eard thee speak of coming death Without a shade of gloom, , And laugh at all the childish fears That cluster round the tomb. "Or is it in my mother's faith? How fondly do I trace. Through many a weary year long past, That calm and saintly face ! How often do 1 call to mind, Now she is 'neath the sod.

A Moment of Horror. For twenty-three years, old Jake Willard has cultivated the toil of Ualdwiu county, Alabama, and drawn therefrom a support for self and wife. He is childless. Not long ago Jake left the house in search of a missing cow. Hi* route led him through an old wtra out patch of clay land, of about tix acres in extent, in thecenter of which was a well, twentylire or thirty feet deep, that at some time, probably, had furnished the inmates of a dilapidated house near by with water. In passing by this spot an ill wind lifted Jake's " tile " from bis head, and maliciously wafted it to the edge of the well, and in it tumbled. Now, Jake bad always practised the virtue of economy, and he immediately set about recovering the tost hat. He ran to the well, and finding it was dry at the bottqm, he uncoiled the rope which ha had brought for the purpose of capturing the truant cow, »nd after several attempts to catch the hat with a noose, he concluded to save time by going down into t...

Walking a Raft. [Newspaper Article] — Mariposa Gazette — 1 January 1861

Walking a Raft. There was a fellow once stepped out of the door of a tavern on the Mississippi, meaning to walk a mile up the shore to the next tavern. Just at the landing there lay a big raft, one of the regular old fashioned whalers—a raft a mile long. Well, the fellow heard the Landlord say the raft was a mile long, and he said unto himself, " I will go forth and see this great wonder, and let my eyes behold the timbers which the hand of man hath hewn." So he got on the lower end, and began to ambulate over the wood in pretty fair time. But just as he got started, the raft started too, and as he walked up the river, it walked down, both traveling at the same rate. When he got to the end of the sticks, he found they were pretty near ashore, and in sight of a tavern; so he landed, and walked straight into the bar room he'd come out of. The general sameness of things took him a little aback, but he looked the landlorn steady in the face, and settled it in bis own way : " Publican," ...

Why did you Stop my Paper ? [Newspaper Article] — Mariposa Gazette — 1 January 1861

Why did you Stop my Paper ? Mr. Editor Holmes:—Surprise* are the zest of 1 life. One meets with tliem every day. They break " in upon the dull monotony of ordinary events like a thunder clap without a cloud; —a thing never heard } of but in Africa. And when, tired of the sameness f of existence, we turn away with dullness and depression, and a sense of having learned everything i worth knowing, and mayhap several things to boot, i which we would give something not to have known, we meet with some new surprise, which, if not , agreeable in its nature, serves at least to stir up and enliveD the thought that there is something yet to f learn. I was surprised when a boy a/t the discovery of lucifer matches, and thought that none Mat old Lucifer himself could have invented them. lam surprised, that for more than forty years a portion of a great people have been intermeddling with their neighbors' business, until the evil threatens their destruction. lam surprised that a portion of the gr...
