Treatment of Waiters. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856

Treatment of Waiters. A chapter might be written upon the impatient men who are irascible and hard upon waiters. I like to be gentle with them. If they do not bring what I w ant on the instant, they are at least books to me which I can read and meditate upon : and the only punishment I ever inflict on a neglectful or uncivil Waiter, is to ask him for a cigar-light, make him a low bow . and. showing him two-pence, inform him that I intend to present il lo the waiter at the Ib-n and Chickens Hotel at Hirniingham. whither 1 am bound by the night-mail instead of to him. lie reels this severely.

Theatrical Anecdote. A Paris correspondent of the X. O. WittrfWmt relates the following theatrical " stunner" in a recent letter: •• The hist performance of Medea ended most laughably. Media had killed her two children, and was ootilouiidod with terror. The curtain should have fallen on this terrible tableau ; but the curtain eon Id not he made to come down atorothan halfway. The prompter tried a half a dozen limes to get it down ; IJistori stood iv her splendid posture, and the children lay dead. At last, ns the curtain could not be made to come down, Ris tori sidled off the stage. The curtain was tugged and tugged, but could not be made lo come down. Th( ; ie of the dead children raised its head, looked around, and seeing everybody gone oil' the stage-, jumped up. bowed to the audience, and ran off; and in two minutes the other murdered child followed its example.

A New Phase. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856

A New Phase. The anti Sabbatarian movement Ims extended itself to Praams where, one would sappoee, there were no inconvenient Sabbatical restrictions. One M. iMellet. v French clergyman, has just published a treatise the object of which is to prove that, to a Christian people,the Sabbath is abolished. Firstly, he shows that it is a ceremonial ordinance; secondly, that it was given specially to the children' ol Israel; thirdly, that it is abolished with the llecalogue of which it constituted a part; fourthly, that in the Xew Testament not a single passage siieuks of a day of rest ; that not one exists which contains the least threat against those who should not observe it, or which makes the smallest allusion to this duty ; and fifthly, that the Gospel expressly declares the ancient Sabbath abolished. These positions are supported by a great array of quotations and arguments.

Bees in Bermuda. .Many curious instances have been noticed by naturaiists illustrative of the instinct which directs various animals to proportion the amount and nature of their labor to the exigencies of particular eases. Bees transported from Kurope to Bermuda, omitted, after the e*pei fence of one season, to make the annual provision for the winter ; and laying aside their habits of industry with the neeessii y of exertion, became idlers aud sources of vexation to the inhabitants.

The Vigilance Committee. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856

The Vigilance Committee. Some few interested individuals, or men with inurvolonsness largely developed, are busy throwing out inuendoos. that the Vigilance Committiv have gone so far that they cannot stop if they would, but must strike for an inde|ieiident government on the shores of the Pacific, which was the real design of their organization. It is urged wilh a great deal of earnestness, that the members of the Committee should they disband, would severally be liable to actions for the fal.-c imprisonment of the expatriated rascals, for murder, pinery, treason, Arc, and nothing short of a revolution complete and ell'ectual, and recognized by the United States government, can give a sale amnesty to the rebels. For their own self security, it is alleged they must go further. This may lie all belieCed by those who urge it. but the idea of three-fourths of the people of a State requiring an amnesty from the other fourth, has a slight twang of fudge about it, which tickles the gullet o...

A Sad Story. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856

A Sad Story. The saddest story that we have ever read was that of a little child in .Switzerland, a pet boy,just as yours is. reader, whom his mother, one bright morning, rigged out in a beautiful jacket all shining with silk and buttons, and gay as a mother's love could make it, and then permitted him to go out to play. Be bad scarcely stepped from the door, of the " Swiss cottage." when an enormous eagle scooped him from the earth and bore him to its nest, high up among the mountains, and vet within sight of the house of which he had been the joy. There he was killed and devoured, Ihe eyrie being ut a point which was literally inaccessible to man. so that no relief could he afforded. In tearing the child to pieces, the eagle so placed the gay jacket in the nest, that it became a fixture there, and whenever the wind blew, it would (hitter, and the sun would shine upon its lovely trimmings and ornaments. For years it was visible from the low lands, long after the eagle had abandoned...

Not So Bad. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856

Not So Bad. The following, which was addressed to the editor of the Tribune, is one of the liest hits of the week : " Sir : in your pa|ier of this morning 1 observe the name of William Poole used in a connection which. I think docs him great injustice. He is classified with Brooks of South Carolina. Ihe poltroon who committed the cowardly assault on Senator Sumner. Now, as a friend Of Poole, 1 protest against such an association of his name. If at all acquainted with Poole's lite and character, you must have known that he never stabbed a man in the dark, that ho never attacked with a club one who was unarmed and defenceless, and that, although known as a 1 lighting man,' he would have utterly searaed the man who continued to beat another ah ter he was siuimul and insensible. Believin" that you have used his name iv this connection through inadvertence. 1 trust you will injustice to his memory, publish these few lines. R. 1\ p."

Thread-finiahlnif. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856

Thread-finiahlnif. Of the rapidity with which some portions or the machinery employed in the mainiluenire of cotton operate, we may form an idea from the tact that the very Driest thread which is used in making lace is neißod through the strong tiame ol a lamp, which burns off the fibres without bin ning the thread itself. The velocity with which the thread moves is so great, that we cannot perceive any motion at all. The line of thread, passing off a a heel through the Maine, looks as if it were perfect!) at rest, and it appears a miracle that it is not barnad.

EDITION FOR THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856

EDITION FOR THE CITY. Night Schools. Some of onr cotemporaries are agitating the subject of establishing night schools in this city, for the benefit of young persons whose time is occupied during the day in such a manner as to prevent their availing themselves of the opportunities afforded by the public schools whose sessions are held during the day. The subject has been so well handled and thoroughly discussed, particularly in the Evening Bulletin, that there is littie left for us to add to the considerations in favor of the scheme already adduced. That there is an imperative necessity existing for the establishment of such institutions in this to us beyoud question. The difference of opinion on the subject relates more to the details with which the plan is to be carried out, than in any diversity of opinion as to the necessity for establishing these night schools. One of the most eminent instructors of youth in the Eastern cities once made the remark, that if he had a son to whom ...

The State of Hopkins. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856

The State of Hopkins. Aii unfavorable change has taken place in the condition of this gentleman. The hopes which were aroused by his improvement noted last week have been blasted by the disastrous turn his prospects have taken. It is now exceedingly improbable that he will recover. We make this statement with profound regret, as we had hoped that the hand raised against his life would not have been successful in its murderous work. Should Hopkins die, our duty is not less clear now than when the infamous act which will have deprived him of life was perpetrated. Terry must meet the doom awarded by society to the murderer. There are no privileged classes in this community now. and if a Supreme .1 udge descends from the bench to do au assassin's work, he should meet an assassin's doom. The course of Judge Terry and his friends during the past week, lias not been such as to create toy sympathy iv his behalf. Immediately on its being slated that Hopkins's condition had improved.

Theatrical Criticism. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856

Theatrical Criticism. The engagement of Mrs. Hayne at the Metropolitan has given birth to a variety of curious specimens of dramatic criticism in the press of this city. The most notable of these are the ones which have appeared in the columns of the Chronicle. We take off our hat when we read them, and were that article of apparel duplicated in our wardrobe, would certainly feel disposed to award it to the writer in question as a " slight token" of our admiration. As it is, " our poverty and notour will" refrains. Here is a choice specimen : The hooded viper, which fascinates the timid bird with his enchanting music and chameleon hues, is not more certain of his prey than the actor whose sweet voice enthrals the aoopai. Philosophy was never more correct than when it pronounced Ihe tones of the human voice sweeter than any melody—finer than instrumentation. Perhaps it is owing to the circumstance that the vocal organ i.-. ol more ancient manufacture than tbe instrumental. The "encha...
