An Honest Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856
An Honest Editor. The editor of llie Shasta R*p*Mm}tn we know to he aMM whose e.mr-e i-dic tated by convictions of duty. Wo regret Ihal. in Ihe present emergency, his views differ so widely Irom our own. He has the advantage over many id' his pre.-out comrades in being perfectly consistent. We reniemlKT him as a decided op|M&gt;nent of the Vigilance dun mittce of 01. and can therefore find no such laull wilh his present position as many of those on his side of the question now lay themselves open to. We commend to the law and murder journals of (his city the course of the ffrpalVaiaa, SC Umt which they would do well to emulate. It resorts to no misrepresentations of fact to support its theories. No candid man can say as much of them. A late number of our Shasta cotempurary has the following, which, though we dissent from some of its conclusions, we take pleasure in copying : We have not mi.represcnled tl„- — t ■■at of this section ot ihe Mate In reference to the Vigilance Co...
The People in Council. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856
The People in Council. The meeting last evening was a popular (Humph. It exceeded in numbers even the most sanguine expectations of the friends of the Reform movement. No excuse now remains for our officials to longer retain their positions, and we trust they will at once succumb to the popular will, and lender their resignations. It is important that, iv the existing crisis, the government should possess the entire confidence of the community. No one will pretend that our present city and county ofllcers were elevated to their present positions by the fairly expressed will of their constituents, and no one can deny that a large majority now demands their resignation. We call on them, then, to d 6 so, and restore ipiiet to our city. Policy as well as principle dictates to them llie course they should pursue. It is better to bend to the storm than to compel the people to force them to take action which a proper sense of duty to their fellow citizens, as well as such self-respect us t...

Typographical Correspondence. Hotel or Messrs. Feedem * Fleece*, Blci Brimstosb Springs, Closebyou Co., Cal., Jane 31. Mf.ssrs. Editors :—Your unusual promptness in settling up with me for my compositorial labors on Saturday night last, and my having encountered unexpectedly a person willing to loan me a small sum of money at five per cent, a month, compounded weekly, account for my finding myself iv this terrestrial paradise. 01 how refreshing it is to leave the atmosphere of a composing-room, redolent with antimony, lead and camphene, and to wander forth iuto the fair fields of the country, robbed of their greenness by the sun of summer, which, smiling in this land as it elsewhere never gladdens the farmer, makes his hay ere he mows his fcrass. The graceful gopher, gliding from the ground his efforts have honeycombed, hies from hole to hole, carrying his tail over his back, with equal skill and much closer proximity to his head than a fashionable lady now-a-days wears her bonnet, ...
CITY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856
CITY NEWS. Mass Meeting Last Nioht.—Agreeably to a published call that ap[&gt;eared in several of the papers and also by posters about town, a very large mass meeting was held last night in front of Montgomery Block, for the purpose of obtaining an expression of public opinion upon the propriety of asking the present officers of the City and County to resign their offices. The meeting was organiied by the election of Ira P. Rankin, Esqr., for President, assisted by about thirty Vice Presidents, from well known and respectable citizens of the city. Speeches were made by Messrs. Rhodes, Scott, Bolin, Sharon and others; and resolutions adopted expressing the belief that the present officers were elected by fraud, and ballot-box stuffing, and consequently they ought to resign, and let an honest election be held. The officers of the meeting were mude a committee to wait upon the officers, and make known the request of the meeting, and to ask them to resign within forty-eight hour...
THE WEEK'S AMUSEMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856
THE WEEK'S AMUSEMENTS Metropolitan Theatre.-()„ Mondilv eTcni , he granger was produced, wilh Mrs. Hayne in Ihe character of Mrs. Haller. We do not regard this play with favor, and Mrs. Hayne's personation of Ihe principal character is not remarkable for either originality or nlHmlin .m The same ill-success in disguising the effort by which she endeavors to produce dramatic effects characterizes her personation of this character. Mr. Pope, as the Stranger, attained moderate success. The subordinate parts were pretty well filled. Ou Tuesday evening Oamille was produced, with the same cast ns on its previous representations. On Wednesday evening the novelty of the week was presented—a play by the author of Ingomar, entitled Griteldu. It tacks tbe merit in plot und language of Ihe former, and we do not think it will attain the same popularity. In its first scenes Mrs. Hayne manifested the same want of energy to which we have bitfore alluded. The subsequent portions of tbe play were mar...

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. V. B.—Glass, as well as some kinds of iron, increases in strength by age. A correspondent of the S'ientitic Amtnean writes as follows: "A neighbor of mine being engaged in putting large panes of glass, of the ordinary thickness, into the front of a house, found it necessary to cut the glass to a proper siz?. Ilut it proved a vexatious business to tbe glazier, for it would not split according to the cut of the diamond, in spite of anything that could be thought of by way of coaxing or inducing it to do so. Thus a large number of panes of glass were cut and broken until the front was filled, and everybody's good diamond was tried. Afterwards the cut and broken panes were set out, exposed to the weather, as entirely useless, it being proved that, no matter how good the cut was, the glass would split its own way. After having spent a long winter nlU ''.' r snow aiid ice, it has, however, beco.i.e exceedingly well balanced in strength, so that it w ill urea* along ...

SPECIAL NOTICES. Fr* - Dr. L. J. Cxapkay. The honorable and consistent course of this gentleman has won for him imperishable respect. Not won hy traducing the characters of others, or seeking to build up his own by the ruin of another's fame ; hut relying solely upon Ihe public value of his services, he hai pressed on lo the mark cf his high calling, and has successfully reached the goal of his aspirations. It i. too common that men in respectable professions forget in their selfish desires Ihe respect due to thennelves and other,, and descend to vindictive, untrue and unnecessary abuse, that they may injure a competitor, with whom they are otherwise unable to cope. Such has never been the course of the gentleman whose n»me forms the option of thi, notice, and unles, we are very much deceived in the repreienUtions we hare had of him, such never will be the case.

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856
NEWS OF THE WEEK. ■ Several of the subscribers of the Shasta Repubt item at Bed ltlutfhave addressed the editor of tlmt paper a letter, from which we extract the following remarks in relation to Judge Terry: "As for Judge Terry, in whose praise you have spoken so eloquently, whom you bare denominated ' the gallant andpatriotU; On loi/al hearted and int 'rruptible mun,' we would like to know what evidence he has ever given of the possession of those ennobling traits of which you speak. Was it his gallantry, his patriotism, his incorruptibility, or his loyal heartcdness, that have caused him, in more instances than the present, to imbrue his hands in the blood of his fellow man? Was it these ennobling traits that caused him, in a court o! justice, to strike down with his murderous steel an unarmed witness on the stand? Is it the working of these principles that gives him his tippling and bullying propensities* God save us and our country from such gallantry, such loyal hcartcdncss, su...
GENERAL GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856
GENERAL GOSSIP. * * Frank Lcs.ic's Illustrated News says :— " We have a letter from Washington calling attention to the resolution lately introduced into the House by Mr. Campbell, of Ohio, authorizing the Clerk to furnish to new members all the books furnished to members of Congress heretofore. Now of the list of books to be provided under this resolution, the majority are to be purchased for a song at the old bookstores in this city. As, no matter how cheaply he buys them, the Clerk of the Honse is sure to charge the full price for them, it is probable that the profits which he would make under this resolution would be little short of $40,000." * * Mr. Henry Mayhew is preparing a great work,entitled " The Great World of Ixindon." He reports, from official documents, the number of offenders who pass annually through the metropolitan prisons, to be about thirty-six thousand; and the total population of all tbe London prisons and lock-u|KS, one hundred and twenty-four thousand nine h...
FUN, FACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856
FUN, FACT AND FANCY. Waste of Iron.—The English are not engaged in embarking the shot, and shell they have collected at Sebnstopol. As to collecting nnd removing these missiles, which are sown broadcast in the very soil, like pebbles on a beach, for the space of seven miles in length, and two miles in breadth, the task is hopeless of execution. Piles of shot have been formed in every ravine, and stand there as monuments of the uselessness of such efforts as have yet been made to gather the iron shower which fell for eleven long months in front of Sebastopol. Every watercourse is full of iron—shell, shot, and splinters of strange shapes abound in every ravine. The Russians will only have to collect what the Allies leave behiad them to form large magazines of shot, but shell will not be so plentiful, as they were more sparingly used, ond were generally damaged, if they did not burst. Guns, too, are buried in the earth, and peer out from the earthwork of overthrown batteries. It is cal...
