English and American Newspapers. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 20 July 1856

English and American Newspapers. The London correspondent of Life Illustrated makes the following; remarks mi this subject • I cannot help contrasting the style of newspam rs here and with us. There can Ik- little question that one or iwo ot the great journals here surpass ours !»<hec< nunl ability „f their leaders, but Now } <>rk publishes ten rendalde pa|>ors where I/uidon does one. A news journal here has nothing; |, u t mus iv it. There is no such variety as our best jiapcrs allnrd. An art journal is all art—a critical journal is all criticism, and a news journal all news and raaMulu upon it. With us polities, literatim' art. and news are intermixed in a very pleasant style- at least for the general reader. Yet the idea ■ here generally prevalent that the American press is as an Knglish newspaper expressed it " cheap mid nasty." Th.'

Sunday Concerts. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 20 July 1856

Sunday Concerts. If the majority of those who affect to be shocked at the idea of Sunday concerts, were faithfully to examine their own minds, they would generally find that the objections they entertain do not arise so much Ironi the presumed irreligion of the thing as from its want of re.*|>ectability. In this city Mrs. Grundy doe* not patronise Sunday concerts, and so Ihe fashionable world follow Mis. Grundy's example, but they do it from fashion and not from religion. Those who really think it wrong to attend Sunday concerts are, of course, right in keeping away ; but they will certainly allow that it is at least as harmless a mode of spending an evening as could lie found by that numerous eland of people who view the Sabbath as v day of rest and harm less pleasure. Many will be attracted to these musical cntcrtuiuineuts, who would otherwise have s|KMit their evenings in much less innocent employment, and certainly no one can derive any harm in listening to the sublim...

Borne Properties of " Superheated" Steam. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 July 1856

Borne Properties of " Superheated" Steam. Some may be incredulous of the statement that steam can be heated so hot in to char pine wood. Tbe Itdilimd idianafa says that tlie naftntoo of the Irving steam boater demonstrated this remarkable properly. He also showed the interesting fact that while a chip held a quartet of an inch from the nozzle of a try-cook would be forced away by tlie issuing Iteaia, held within nn eighth of an' inch of the nozzle, il would be drawn suddenly to, and forcibly retained again't the opening, as if by magnetism. The property of superheated steam to absorb water is also remarkable. A boiler with a sell'actiiiu' discharge for excessive steam, llie machinery of which was heavily weighted, being neglected under brisk firing, one day got overheated. When the discharge acted, it was through a aocatt Uurned downwards into a pail of cold water. The steam suddenly shot into it; did not. as would be sup|Kised. blow the water about the engine room but it converted ...

Clrrtrijing gomling prmtsl). An Knglish physician, for some time a resident of Pera. near Constantinople, relates in his journal how he one day astonished one of those queer religious fanatics, half priest, half doctor, and always beggars, known as howling dervishes : A young slaw belonging to the bouse where for a while we were invited to sojourn, was afflicted with yellnnjik (toothache.) Immediately on her desire being made known, a messenger" was dispatched for a dervish whom she named, and who was rather eminent in the cures he effected. Tbe family, except one aged relative upon whom this slnve attended, were staying at their country residence. Fitnet Hananm, the slave, was led into the presence of the dervish. He might once have been a handsome man, but now Ids countenance had taken that sickly and distorted expression which often follows their dreadful ceremonies ; and with his thick, bristling moustache and his long matted beard, it gave him by no means a prepossessing appear...

Childish Quick-Wittcdness. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 July 1856

Childish Quick-Wittcdness. The Etat* Unix tells a characteristic anecdote of the brother of the present Emperor of Russia. The Grand Duke Constantino, at ten years of age, inhabited the winter palace, whose base is washed by the Neva. Lnrge iron rings were fastened in the stone work of the palace, to which the boats for the embarkation of the - court were moored. When the Neva rose to these rings, it was the sign of an inundation of its banks. One day the little prince stood watching the rapid rise of the river. " Well, your highness," said General Benkendorf, then Minister of war, " at teu years of age you are grand Admiral; you nre very powerful indeed, but no matter how powerful you may still become, yon can never prevent the Neva from rising to the rings," " Oh!" replied the grand duke. " that is because lam only a make-believe admiral; when I become great and command the licet in reality, I will prevent the Neva from reaching the rings." " How, your highness ?" " Oh! very easil...

Hints to Ladies. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 July 1856

Hints to Ladies. Stair carpets should always have a slip of paper put under them, at and over the edge of every stair, which is the part where they first wear out, in order to lessen the friction of the carpet against the boards beneath. The strips should be within an inch or two as long as the carpet is wide, and about four or five inches in breadth, so as to be a distance from each stair. This simple plan, so easy of execution, will, we know, preserve a stair carpet hall as long ngain as it would last without the strips of paper. *aT Time flies, and never dies.

A Painful Scene. A few days ago, as we were riding; up Broadway in an omnibus, a well-dressed, middle-aged, goodnatured lady entered the vehicle, just above Canal street, and took a seat opposite us. On looking around she fixed her gaze upon a voting couple sitting at our right, and instantly tier face Hushed ami her eyes flashed, liaising her finger and pointing it to the young man, she said : " You urea pretty son to cheat your mother out of all her property, and then tarn Ber out of her own house, which your lather built for her." Everybody in the omnibus at once turned their attention to the young man, who blushed, frowned, and finally said : * 1 wouldn't have turned you out if you had not told my wife and accused l,c"r. Nobody shall abuse my wife." " Yon are a pretty son to cheat your mother out of all her pro-porty, nnd then turn "her out of her own house, which your father built for her," repeated the lady, without the slightest variation in tone or accent.

Sagacity of the Iudian. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 July 1856

Sagacity of the Iudian. This man has often been among the prnirie Indians, understands their language and character well, and the moment he sees a trail made by them, or an o.d deserted camp, he at once determines of what nation they were ; the number of Ebrses and mules in their possession ; whether they were accompanied by their families, and whether they were upon a war expedition or otherwise ; as also the time (within a few hours) of their passing, with many other facts of importance. Those faculties appear to be intuitive, and confined exclusively to the Indian. I have never seen a white man that could judge of these matters with such certainty as they. For example, upon passing the trail of the Indians to-day, one of our Delaware* looked for a moment at the foot-prints, picked up a blade of grass that had been crushed, and said the trail was made two days since, « hen to us it had every appearance of being quite fresh. Subsequent observations satisfied us that he was correct....
