A Freak or Nature — Wo learn from a reliable source, that there is a phenomenon of an extraordinary character to bo witnessed on the »-ide of Cumberland mountain, in Grundy co. f about twenty two miles from Jasper, says tbo Chattanooga Gaxette. It seems lb nt several days ago, a spare of ground about sixty feet square, sunk down about fifteen feet, carrying with it in confusion the trees, rocks, cVe. After that the earth far about the same width, at th* end of tbo depression down the mountain, commenced rising, and continues ike phenomenon in its reversed form still further down th- mountain. Those who witnessed it. said that it ros* gradually, extending down about a foot * day, and was continued when they saw it. The largest trees were lorn from their foundations, and thrown down or locked or tangled with others in terrible disorder. Largo rocks were loosened from | their time-honored foundations and rolled over. Various conjectures aro afloat about this freak of nature, and we sho...

777 IN ALL CASES, WHICH , THE DISEASE.— People of very weakly constitution!, often require stronger doses than' more healthy persons. Health and sickness being a straggle of two principles, or humors within us; the one good arid. supporter ol life, the other bad, and destroyer of it. These nils assist nature to aid the good in throwing off the bad- — It is evident that the more the one predominates oyer the good, the more assistance the good requires. This is proved by the fact that in almost all violent diseases the patient requires large doses and they often have very little effect ; but that only proves the great necessity there is for perseverance until powerful purging. takes place. No on" will doubt the truth of this who will one** fully try it. Let this moat important 'truth be deeply impressed on every mind. That all pain or wrakn"ss is owing to morbid, stagnant, and corrupt humors, which impede the circulation of the blood, and that these pills if persevered in, will reranv...

OLD EUROPE AND YOUNG AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 18 March 1848

OLD EUROPE AND YOUNG AMERICA. [From the Gazette de France] Europe goes on dreaming of the proud eras of her former glory, and though decrepit and failing from the active seeds of all kinds of corruptions, still she cannot give credit to the prodigies of the rising people of America, whom she views in the light of adventurers and parvenus. Cherishing the prejudices of England, she takes as a species of indirect flattery and eulogium, the various misrepresentations which are made by a calculating enemy about the American expeditions in Mexico. According to European journals, both the land and sea forces of the United States are badly accoutred, ill disciplined, wasting away under disease, frequently mutinous, and can not long withstand being dispersed like clouds by the formidable and numerous army of the heroic generalissimo, Santa Anna. All these accounts, which are merely the imaginings of frivolous journalists, and offered as a species of homage to the credulity of Old Europe, are...

the California Star ] Pro.tpects «f California. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 18 March 1848

[For the California Star ] Prospects of California. A band of honest, highminded and true patriots, not more than seventy- two years ago, declared to the world that henceforth they were freemen, and England, proud, powerful England had to submit ;— for, if then she knew not the men who had written this declaration of their independence, she soon afterwards became convinced of her error. She had lost her North American Colonies, "the brightest jewels in her crown," and a nation of freemen had sprung into existence. The powers of Europe, spectators of this eventful drama, gazed with astonishment, applauding secretly the lesson given to Great Britain by the citizens of a country which two hundred years ago was "a boundless wilderness, peopled only by a few scattered bands of savages." But mark the beneficial influence of our happy institutions. In 1790, the Union consisted of 13 states, it now numbers 28 besides its old and newly conquered territories. In 1790, the population of the Un...

Woman's Influence. - Like the olive tree --said to fertilize the surrounding soil — there are some few ministering angels in female guise among us all and about our paths, who sweetly serve to cheer and adoru life. Our amusements are insipid unlers they contribute to them; our efforts of noblest ambttirth feeble. unless they applaud— its reward valueless, unless they share them. There are, too, some rude spirits in the world, whose bolder nature female influence admirably serves to refine and temper; and perhaps it is an extreme eulogium of the poet, that without that influence, many a man had been a brute indeed! " The concurrence of both sexes is as necessary to the perfection of our being, as to the existence of it. Man may make a fine melody, but woman is also required to make up harmony. Arista and hi* Generals. — The following j scene between Arista and his generals actually took place . the description was derived from a gentlt-man high in the confidence and es- 1 teem of the...
