GENERAL GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 20 July 1856

GENERAL GOSSIP. * * The London correspondent of the N. Y. Sunday Times says: " Charles Dickens has at length secured a homestead, which people have been surprised he has not done before. It is a beautiful cottage at Gadshill, rendered famous by Shakspeare, who selected it as the scene for some of Jack Fallstaff's pranks. The cottage is of Queen Anne's time, surrounded with cedars, with a lawn in front neatly trimmed, and looking like an emerald carpet figured with buttercups and daisies. Dickens lias overcome all his pecuniary entanglements, and lives in fine but somewhat ostentatious'style at the West Bad, courting titled people, instead of being courted by them. The tendency to snobbishness is his great fault." * * Of the great ship now building at Millwall, England, the Quarterly Review writes:— " Neither Grosvcnor Square nor Belgrave Square would take the Great Eastern in ; Berkeley Square would barely admit her in its long dimensions, and when rigged, not at all, for her mizen ...

FTTH, FACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 20 July 1856

FTTH, FACT AND FANCY. The Latest Discoveby in Chemistbt. —Prof. Graham, of London, master of the Mint, has succeeded, after numerous experiments, recorded in the " Philosophical Transactions," in discovering the reason of the admixture of brandy and water. "This phenomenon is called diffusion ; it is the law that 'gases diffuse with velocities inversely proportional to the square root of their densities? and this is the proportionate velocity at which they would rush into a vacuum, as has been proved both by mathematical induction and by direct experiment." The learned doctor of course is right, but hitherto the common error has been that the cause of the admixture of brandy has been the tender of sixpence to the landlord. Anecdote of Webster.—Daniel Webster is the subject of a very amusing anecdote Monsieur Sartige, the Minister from France, asked Mr. Webster whether the United States would recognize the new government of France. The secretary assumed a very solemn tone and attitud...

EABLY TO BED AND EARLY TO BISK [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 20 July 1856

EABLY TO BED AND EARLY TO BISK BY |UU COOK. •' Early to bed and early to rise"— . Aye, note it with care down la your brain, Tor it helpeth to make the foolish wine. And unroots the weeds of pain. Ye who are walking on the thorns of care, Why sigh Tor a softer Lower; Try what can be done in the morning sun, And make use of the early hoar. Full many a day forever is lost, By delaying its work till to-morrow; The' minutes of sloth have often cost liong years of bootless sorrow. And ye who would win the lasting wealth Of content and peaceful power. Ye who would couple Labor and Health Must begin at the early hour. We make bold promises to Time, Yet, alas! too often break them; We mock at the wings of the King of kings, Aad think we can overtake them. But why loiter away the prime of the day, Knowing that clouds may lower? Is it not safer to make life's hay In the beam of the early hour I Nature herself ever shows her best Of gems to the gate of the lark. When the spangles of light on t...

tljf fast of gis Uarr. BY J. F. SMITH, AUTHOR Of "TBI »OU>IER OF FORTUNE,'' " HIXHII SRCT," BTO. CHAPTER XTI. Where'er the gamins; board is set. Two classes of mankind are met; But if we count the greedy race, The knaves flit np the greater space. Could fools to keep their own contrive. On what,on whom, would gamesters thrive? Gat. Although public gaming houses have been suppressed in Paris, framing has not; it thrives as much as ever; with this difference, that instead of equally braving public opinion and public morality, as was formerly the case, by being liceosed by tbe government, it hides itself in saloons, the circle, and the jockey club. Many a man who rides his thorough-bred horse in the Champs Elysees, and woman of fashion who dashes through the Bois de Boulogne in her elegant wttpf, would find themselves reduced to an existence in the provinces but for this resource. Not that they indulge much in play—a little only for appearance sake; but they receive those wh...

How to Bathe on a Summer'! Day. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 20 July 1856

How to Bathe on a Summer'! Day. Many erroneous notions prevail respecting Ihe use and pn.|KTlies of the warm bath. To many penoJM, ihe idea of submersion in warm water, oil ft summer's day, would he preposterous; but if it be rationally considered, il will la- found thai the warm bath may Ik' taken with equal, or perhaps greater bcnclit. in the summer than in the winter. Murine; hot weather, the secretions iv the skin are much increased in quantity, and i sequciitlv v L'lcntcr necessity exist* that' it should be kept Mrlectly free from obstructions. Another prevailing error respecting fa warm bath is, that it tend* to relax and enervate the body ; for experience has sufficiently provwl the fallacy of the opinion, aud many physicians have prcscr'ilx-i! its use to patients laboring under debility from disease, none of whom exjK'nence such effects, but have all felt invigorated and mostly restored to health and strength. Many persons are deterred from using ihe warm bath, esjieciaHv m ...
