Toe Caged Lion. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 20 July 1856

The Caged Lion. The Westminster Review in a recent article on Gerard's (the celebrated lion hunter of Algiers) account of his adventures, relates the following anecdote of a pet lion Hubert which Gerard caught when a cub, and raised till he was big enough to be dangerous, when he was sent to the Jardin des Plantes at Paris, where, some time afterwards, Gerard went to see him. He was lying half asleep, gazing with indifference on all the visitors, when suddenly he raised his head, his eyes dilated, a nervous twitching of the muscles of his face, and agitation of his tail, showed that the sight of the wellknown uniform had roused him. He had recognized the uniform but had not yet identified his old master. His eyes vaguely interrogated this vaguely remembered form. Gerard thrust his hand into the cage. It was a touching moment which followed; without taking his eyes from Gerard, he applied his nose to the outstretched hand, and began to breathe deeply ; with every breath his eyes beca...

Saving a Train—Heroic Self-possession. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 20 July 1856

Saving a Train—Heroic Self-possession. Kngincer John F. Haskins, in charge of a passenger locomotive upon the Rochester and Niagara Falls road, saved a train of cars containing one hundred and fifty travelers, thus skillfully and bravely. He was running rapidly upon an embankment. A flange flew off from fine of his forward truck wheels. The divergence of the head of the machine from the line of the track caught the engineer's eye. and told him that the engine must go down the bank. At the same instant he felt the train press upon the tender and engine, and knew the couplings were slack. This sensation suggested to his experienced mind, as ipiick as lightning, the salvation of the passenger cars, by Ihe breaking of the first coupling next the tender by a sudden and powerful jerk. He twitched open the throttle-valve to its full' width, and gave the pistons suddenly a full head of steam. Theengine leaped, and snapped the couplings of the first car. plunged down the bank overturned the ...

Fruit in Cam Pie-Plant, ate. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 20 July 1856

Fruit in Cam Pie-Plant, ate. Putting up fruits, Ac., in sealed cans is not always successful, as many know from experience. Qretaa corn has often been tried, and generally without success. The Ohio Cult irator say " Others have a more sad experience in canning rhubarb and pie plant, which contains so much oxalic acid, Ihut ou being used from the cans has nearly been the dcalh of whole lumilies. Keeping in this way seems to give more virnlanpatohspontonmis qaaljtirc, which arc eottapavratirely barm lets when the plant is used fresh from the gulden." Sealed glass botiles ure much better than metallic cans for this purpose. ■tajy- Modesty is l>»t the art of hiding one * vanity.

It establishes the fact that iv the minds ol intelligent Americans the people are tie facte as well as in abstract theory the Source of all power: that in emergencies like the present they have the riirht to assume the position of sovereigns ajid abandon that of subjects. In fact, the only tenable oround of objection to the action of the people through the Vipilance ComBUttW lay in the consideration that the revolution was not complete—that it did not do away with all branches of our government. This position was amply nut by the proposition that if the people have the right to accomplish revolutions, they have equally the power of limttigag the extent of such in ivem...

The Nominations. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 20 July 1856

The Nominations. The " long agony" has commenced, and the Union must now know no repose till the coming of November decides who is to be sovereign among the people's servants. The nominations arc at last all made, and the prospects of each candidate are, if we may believe their supporters, of the most flattering character. The periodical salvation of the country, whioh has occurred at intervals of four years since the adoption of the Federal Constitution, is once more to take place, and it is gratifying to reflect that theelcction of any of the candidates now before the people will be amply sufficient to accomplish that result. From the present time till the last of the autumn months, we may look for little else in our Eastern exchanges than accounts of monster mass meetings, resolutions, letters from candidates to inquiring friends, and appeals to patricts all over the laud to " rally" for •• Buck and Itreck." " the Pioneer and the Jerseyman." or" Fillmore and Ponelson." In the con...

The Sisters of Mercy. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 20 July 1856

The Sisters of Mercy. *■ These three abideth : Faith, Hope and Charity ; but the greatest of these is Charity.'' Time lias not robbed this sublime sentence of its signilieancy or its truth. The lame of the noble-hearted, pure daughters of the Catholic Church who have devoted themselves to the alleviation of human suffering and the suppression of vice, is world-wide, as it will be immortal. In Calilornia this charitable organization has been ]ioculiarly active, und even the differences of opinioß which exist on religious subjects have not availed to deprive them of the sympathy of almost our entire fOßSßtlißilj. They now appeal to our citizens for aid in carrying out their benevolent designs, and we trust, as we doubt not, that they will obtain it. Their Circular, which is published in all the daily puiiers, sets forth the details of the work to which they have devoted themselves. Some Consolation.—lt is a cheering fact to bear in mind, that if a few ruffians on Monday evening last s...

NEW BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 20 July 1856

NEW BOOKS. We hnve received from the Noisy Carrier's Hook and Stationery Co. a number of new publications, notice of a portion of which our space compels us to defer to our next number. Those we propose to examine this week are the following: VAGABOND LOT IN MEXICO. By Clabrtkl Fkrrv ; lor seven rears resident in that country. New York, Harper A liros. San Francisco, Noisy Carrier's Book and Stationer}' Co. There is no country in America which offers such inducements to vagabond existence, if a hand-to-mouth, wandering mode of life may be properly so termed, as Mexico. With all the antiquated manners and customs of Spain and Italy, it affords opportunity for observing traits of savage life in that portion of the population who are almost purely of Aztec origin. The present work is a series of readable sketches translated from Uie French, one of which has heretofore appeared in our columns in a form slightly differing from its present one, and was entitled " Don Tadeo Crist »bal/' Th...
