A NEW SONG OF A SHIRT. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 13 July 1856
A NEW SONG OF A SHIRT. With patience weary and worn, Wilh curses dire and dread, A bachelor sat, with his shirt in his lap, Plying his needle and thread. Stitch, stitch, stitch, While with blasphemous epithets curt. He cursed his laundress, the withered witch, And sewed at his buttonless shirt. Stitch, stitch, stitch. While the cab waits at the door; This stitch, stitch, stitch. Is a most confounded bore. 'Tis 0! to be a slave, E'en to an extravagant wife, And never be able a penny to save— If this be bachelor life. Stitch, stitch, stitch, When I should be at a ball; Stitch, stitch, stitch, Or IU naver get there at all. The polka I'm pledged lo dance With the girl with whom I flirt And now, by a cursed chance, A button's off every shirt. A button's off every shirt. And she will be cross, I know. And ten to one will flirt With every moustached beau. Aud she'll call me a faithless swain, And say I have 'eft her, too— While for her sake I am tugging in vain To get this needle through. ...

Mr. Elton was seated in bis chambers in the Temple, poring over oneof those legal puzzles, cm pared to which the Sphinx might have been easily unriddled, nnd the dark hieroglyphics of Egypt ns simple to decipher as the common alphabet; in other words, he was reading a venerable Chancery brief, which had made its Hrst appearance in the world when his predecessor in the tirm was v youth—before he had grown-up sons and daughters, or been addressed by the name of grandfather. The document had a yellow look, that might be accounted tor by its age, and a faint musty odor, as if the tears of those whose hopes had been bound up with it had mildewod the folios.

THE SONG OF THE CAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 20 July 1856
THE SONG OF THE CAMP. nv UftTARU TITUlK. A CRIMEAN INCIIIENT. Give us a Song !'■ the soldiers cried. The outer trenches guarding. When the healed guns of the camps allied Grew weary of bombarding. The dark Kedan, in silent scoff, Lay, grim and threatening, under ; And the Lawny mound wf tlie MalakolT No longer belched its thunder. There was a pause. Tbe guardsman said : M We storm the forts I" mo-row; Sing white we may—another day Will bring enough of sorrow.'' They lay along the battery's side, Below tbe smoking cannon — Brave hearts, from Severn and from Clyde, And from the hanks of Shannon. They sang of love, and not of fame ; Forgot was Britain's glory— Each heart recalled a diff* rent name. But all sang " Annie Laurie." Voice after voice caught up the song. Until it. tender passion Rose like an anthem, rich and strong— Their battle-eve confession. Pear girl, her name he dared not speak. Yet, as tbe song grew louder, Something u|kmi the soldier's cheek Washed oil* the sta ns of ...
THE HERRING AND THE OYSTER. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 20 July 1856
THE HERRING AND THE OYSTER. A hrriing loved An oyster, An oyster in the south; And nil the herring longed for Wa a kiss from her assart* mouth. But the oyster she was scornful, And ever stayed at home. Shut up in her tight shell c i stle, Where never a kias could conic. 'Twas on a summer evening, Her shell was opened wide, To see her charms reflected On the silver-gleaming tide. Quick came the love-lorn herring, Like lightning flew his fin : " And now," thought he, " or never. Sweet love, my kiss I'll win." But as toward the oyster Too far his head he leaned. Snap came the shells together, And he was guillotined 1 All in the glowing sunset, He floated from the shore. And from the neck dime gurgling: " I'll ne'er love oyster more."
Canon* Mode of Cure. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 20 July 1856
Canon* Mode of Cure. That mysterious influence exercised by the mind over the body, is well illustrated in the following case contained in Dr Warren's excellent, treatise on the " Preservation of Health." •• Sometime since a female presented herself In me withaJumnr or swelling of the sub-maxillary gland of the neck It was about the size of an egg, had lasted two years, and was so very hard that I considered uny effort to dissipate it by medicine to be vain, and advised its removal by an oiieratiou. To this the patient could not bring her mind; therefore, to satisfy her wish, some applications of considerable activity were directed to be made to the part, and these she pursued a niimlter of weeks without any change. After this, she called on me, and with some hesitation, begged to know whether an application recommended to her would, in my opinion, be safe. This consisted in applying the hand of a dead man three times to the diseased part. &lt; )ne of her neighbors now lay d...
