The Demands of the Hour. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 July 1856

The Demands of the Hour. The present is the crisis of the reform movement. There has been a necessity for deliberation—but thnt period is past. The demand of the hour—the will of the people is that the Vigilance Committee shall act, and at once. Already the enemies of reform are pointing to the delay that has occurred in the trial and sentence of Terry, as an indication of weakness and indecision on the part of the Committee. This feeling must be counteracted by action—action effective and prompt. There has been another assassination, as brutal, as public, and almost as inexcusable, as that of James King of William. Do we wish the criminal to escape punishment as he has heretofore done? Do we wish this crime to be repeated ? If not, if we arc really earnest in the work of reform, action must be taken noir, while action will be effective. If we give nn inch of vantage-ground to the horde of ruffians whose rule we have temporarily interrupted, their ultimate triumph is certain, and wi...

Civil War. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 July 1856

Civil War. The law and murder party have been indefatigable in their efforts, since the inception of the present movement, to plunge our community into the horrors of a civil war. It has not suited their purposes that the reform has been carried on peaceably aud bloodlessly, as it has lieen throughout. They see the absurdity of styling that period a "reign of terror" which has only witnessed the hanging of two assassins. They do not fail to note the influence which the coolness and determination of the People's Committee have had on public opinion at the East, and being unable to characterize the action taken by a united community, without rashness or haste, as that of a mob, they now endeavor (all other schemes having failed) to incite a collision between the Federal authorities and the Committee, willing, nay, even anxious that bloodshed and destruction of proiierty should ensue, if such a consummation gives them opportunity to charge that result upon the Committee, and hesitating...

The Aiiasjination of Dr. Randall. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 July 1856

The Aiiasjination of Dr. Randall. The effect of the impunity with which crime has heretofore been committed is clearly evidenced in the shooting of Dr. Randall on Thursday last, in this city, by Iletherington. The murder of Baldwin by the same hand, some years since, was, through the laxity of the administration of our laws, allowed to go unpunished, and in the present crime we see but the fruits of the escape of the criminal from justice. And we have no hesitation in saying that, did not an organization now exist among us for the speedy and severe punishment of such deeds, the expectations of the murderer in committing his crime would prove to have been wel r founded. Were Hetherington's punishment dependent on the action of our courts of law, he might rely on escaping tbe retribution with which Justice follows Crime. It is therefore matter of gratulation to consider that the present will be the last of this man's misdeeds. The resort to the use of deadly weapons on trifling occasi...

The Return of Bulger. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 July 1856

The Return of Bulger. The announcement that Kulger, one of the scoundrels sent from our midst at the beginning of the reform and retributive movement, had returned from the Sandwich Islands on the Yankee, crcatiil in the beginning of the week considerable excitement in our community. The feeling was generally and strongly expressed that an example should l>e made of the one who, by his audacity, hail set an example to banished villnnyto return and attempt to resume its rule in our midst. It was subsequently rumored that there were extraordinary circumstances in the ease —that Balgor came back with no intention of setting the public sentiment at deliancc —that he had no design of again taking up a residence in San Francisco, bat simply wi.-hrd tfl lie allowed to go to the East instead of the plitco to which it is said he was sent by a mistake. Whether this rumor lie correct or not we are not able losav. It is not improbable, however, that this is the trjje state of the cas...

" Look Out for the Engine while the Bell Rings." [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 July 1856

" Look Out for the Engine while the Bell Rings." "The Press is a mighty engine." It follows, therefore, that v bright look-out should lie kept for it whenever its track crosses any of ihe ordinary pathways of literary locomotion. Tlie ncws|iupcrs of this State heretofore have Ibi d t lucled upon nearly the same principles, and with sonic few exceptions have carefully abstained from taking the lead of their competitors in any other field than the soliciting of advertisements and subscript ions. Hut this era of non-progression is past. A new clement is about to be introduced into California journalism. Inertia itself is about to be endowed with activity, and is to lead the movement. No one could have predicted that the first steps would have been taken in this reform by the most fogvish ol our dailies. Hut so it is. Rome was saved by the cackling of geese, and the California press is to be regenerated by the. California Chronicle. Hear it: There is a good deal of charlatanrr in the ST...

Native California Wine. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 July 1856

Native California Wine. The wenlth of a community is its productive power, and he who develops that power is one of the State's best citizens. The richness of our State in its deposits of the precious metals has to some extent retarded the evolvement of its more permanent and equally valuable resources, and any step toward a condition of self-reliance—a slate iv which we shall produce, as far as circunistanoes will allow, all that we consume—should be received with general gratulation. All California's riches, paradoxical as it may seem, will not place her in a position of inde]>endenee till she produces what she needs within her own borders. We have frequently alluded to the vine-growing capability of our soil, and iv opposing the Maine liquor Law which was proposed in the last Legislature, we took occasion to show that the true remedy for inordinate indulgence in intoxicating liquors was the encouragement of the production of native wine. Allow every man to become a mod...

CITY NEWS. The Last Murder.—We are again called upon t > chronicle a deed of blood. Another cold-blooded murder has been committed in open day, and in a public and frequented place. Another victim is sent to bia long home, and another assassin is confined at the Committee rooms to await his trial. The victim is Dr. Andrew Randall, and his assassin is Joseph Hctherington. The deed was perpetrated on Thursday last, at 3>£ o'clock P. M., in the office or bar-room of the St. Nicholas Hotel. The difficulties that led to the commission of the deed are said to be of a business character, and which make Dr. Randall a debtor to Hetheriugton in the sum of about $20,000, which was in the form of a judgment at the time lletherington obtained it. Failing to get the money which he desired to, he pursues his debtor, insults him on the street, and finally shoots him down. The particulars of tbe affair are aa follows: Dr. Randall entered the hotel at the hour previoualy named, ...

THE WEEK'S AllTJSEMENTS. Metropvtutan Theatre.—This has been a week of benefils, and they have generally been well attended.

The Filibuster President [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 July 1856

The Filibuster President William Walker in now de jure, as lie has been for months de facto, President of the Nicaragua!! Republic. As we style his government a Republic, we may properly denominate him a President; but were both named rightly, his rule would be termed a despotism, and the title assigned him that ot Czar. His elevation to his present position is no indication of his success, cither in subjiig-.iting or winning the affections of those whose imbecility and want ol valor has made them his subjects. His assuming the reins of government was a necessity of his safety, and we cannot but sec iv it an indication of his approaching downfall. With an army daily becoming feebler in strength and less in numbers; with an empty treasury ; with opponents who have climate, cholera and fever to aid them ; with no recruits or other assistance arriving from abroad, he cannot for any great length of time eseajie the fate which long since we predicted would be his. It is amusing to note t...

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. Voixxterr.—You will find all the information you desire in Ibe following extract: " A gretit many experiments have been made in different countries with extreme attention, among which some difference is of course disceruable, (perhaps from the quality of the weapon, of the powder, and of the men selected for the experiment ) but whence some approximative calculation may be drawn, sufficient to give an average respecting the effect of musketry, supposing the arms to be good, the powder strong, the charge ample, the bullets perfect, and the soldiers steady. Let a hundred shots from a musket barrel, fixed in a proving vice, be fired at a target ut a distance of 100 yards: one-half will strike in a circle of 35 to 27 inches, and nil the shots, or nearly all, will be within a circle 4 feet in diameter. A hundred shots in the same manner, at 150 yards, will generally lodge half the balls in about feet diameter, and all in 11 feet. A hundred shots nt 200 yards put ge...

At Bidwell, all the law vers, and Frank Bine, are " law and order; nearly all others, including the business men and miners, are with the Committee. At Wyandotte, Cherokee Flat, Oregon Gulch, Ac, we have been informed by reliable men that the people are almost unanimous for the Vigilance Committee. Between Pike Hill and Robinson Hill, in tlie vicinity of this place, there are probably fire or six hundred miners; out of this number we do not believe there can b-- found ten 'law and order' men. Many miners assure us thnt they have never yet met one. At one house, near the Water Oftke, tliere arc forty-five boarders, and there is...

Upon a pedestal, to be erected on an eminence near the Forefathers' Rock, stands a colossal granite statue of Faith, seventy feet in height, standing with its feet eighty feet from the ground, thus making the entire height one hundred and fifty feet. At four of the corners of the pedestal, which is octagonal, are seated figures typifying Morality, Education, Law, and Liberty, each thirty-eight feet in height, while between them are panels to receive bas-reliefs and inscriptions. It will be. when completed, one of the most beautiful works of art, and one of the most stupendous monumental structures in the world. * * A process of drying eggs so that they will keep good for any length of time, has been devised by a person in England ; it is effected by evaporation.
