The Deeds of Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 3 August 1856
The Deeds of Tuesday. The anticipations which prevailed during the early part of last week, that it would be signalized by action on the part of the Committee of Vigilance, were fully realized by the events of Tuesday. Shortly after one o'clock, crowds of spectators gathered in the vicinity of the Committee rooms, and took np positions affording them an opportunity of witnessing the spectacle. It was at first generally believed that the execution would take place from the windows of the Committee rooms, but this was not the case, and as the companies of armed members of the organization arrived and took their stations, it soon became evident that the cleared space on Davis street, between I/mg wharf and Sacramento streets, would be the scene of the tragedy. Before three o'clock all the streets leading to that point were blocked up with masses of spectators who maintained their positions for several hours. The windows and roofs of tlie buildings adjacent to the scene of the execution...
Palmer, Cook ft Co. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 3 August 1856
Palmer, Cook ft Co. The utter incapability of this firm to meet their obligations was demonstrated long since by the Evening Bulletin, but if a doubt yet remained in the mind of any candid individual, the intelligence by the mail steamer mnst suffice to remove it. The interest on the State and City bonds payable in New York, and which was paid over to Palmer, Cook &amp; 00. some time since, has not been met, and we have no belief that it will be. Their drafts have also been dishonored, and nothing remains to complete their failure, but the closing the doors of their bank ; a measure which would by this time have been taken had their number of depositors in this city not been so infinitessimally small. The morning after the arrival of the steamer the firm published the following card : THE PUBLIC—We are advised by the mail yesterday, that the interest on the State and City Bonds was not paid in New York when due, and that our drafts to a small amount were protested. We had su...
No Row After All. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 3 August 1856
No Row After All. It appears there is to be no war with England. The teapot no longer swells and sings warlike songs born of the tempest that has for so many months raged within it. John Bull quietly receives the insult offered him in the person of Mr. Cruuipton, and prefers rather to swell his pockets by adding this slight to their contents thau to empty them in a war with the United States. It would have liech nn inconvenient business for England to have retaliated in kind, for it would have lieen necessary not only to dismiss Mr. Dallas but also three Consuls from some of the English ports, to render the offset even. So the affair is allowed to blow over. It may be, however, that England intends to have the advantage yet, as it is rumored that no successor will be sent in place of Mr. Crampton till after President Pierces term has expired. It is possible that then Great Britain will send Mr. Crampton back again, and as the diplomatic ground of dismissing that functionary was his ...
A Desideratum. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 3 August 1856
A Desideratum. The study of foreign languages, rendered a general necessity by improved means of intercommunication between the nations of the world, has brought forth a collection of systems rapid or tedious, superficial or thorough, sufficiently large to render the supposition that the subject had been pretty well exhausted, a very natural one. And yet the great fact is perfectly apparent that not one in ten, even of those who are bard students, attain a sufficient proficiency in any other than their native tongue to carry on a conversation which is not interspersed with continual blunders of pronunciation and emphasis. The latter, which is the most defective phase of the practice of speaking a foreign tongue, is the one which has received the least attention, and yet it appears to ns that its shortcomings are the most capable of being remedied. We do not remember to have seen any extended allusion, much less especial remark in this connection, in any of the works on the acquireme...
The Beit Sell of the Season. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 3 August 1856
The Beit Sell of the Season. Major General Howard is distinguishing himself in a manner which certainly should secure him an engagement as clown in one of our circus companies. An artist, who has evinced so much ■kill io converting tragedy inio farce, would certainly be eminently successful in the line to which we have alluded. The daily papers contain the particulars of a sell which the AogtM major (General recently perpetrated on the U. g. authorities at Henicia, which is none the less good because the law and murder militia warrior may have believed tbe story he set in circulation. A plan of an attack on the U. S. fortifications, Ac. was sent to Com. Favagut, detailing the rnculns operandi by which the Vigilance Committtee were to become possessors of Uncle .Sam's property in this State. First, the Presidio and adjacent works were to be taken ; then Alcatraz was to be stormed and captured ; and lastly Henicia itsell, the Gibraltar of the Pacific, was lobe snatched from the rule o...

Owner Wanted. For the idea of the following universal joke. The Era preceded the 7bu&gt;n Talk in publishing it, but we claim being in advance of either, and although long suffering has made us callous in the matter of exchanges neglecting to give us what little credit we deserve, we add to the genealogical list commenced by the Era, in the belief that some other paper will take up the theme and the original paternity of the squib be discovered : Civic Suggestion.—Tbe best mode of enabling tbe city to recover from ber misfortunes is to induce our Common Council to meet them witb resignation. — Wide Wut, Feb. 10.

CITY SEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 3 August 1856
CITY SEWS. Coroner's Inqcest.—Coroner Kent summoned a Jury, who met on Thursday last, to inquire into the cause of the death of Hetherington and Brace, who were executed by the Vigilance Committee on Tuesday last. They hare held a session each day, and have heard a large amount of testimony, most of which was of an indefinite character, as those witnesses who were capable ti&gt; give the most positive evidence, declined to answer the questions put to them, on the ground that such answers would criminate themselves. Some of the witnesses swore to the identity of the man who placed the rope upon the necks of the men, and fixed the deed upon one Robert Nixon, formerly of Albany. It was also proved that a man known as Bill, an attache of Washington Market, was the one who cut the rope that removed ths trap door. The jury have adjourned,' to meet again on Wednesday next. The object of the adjournment is to find out the real and full name of Bill, who it is said cut the rope. Thos...
THE WEEK'S AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 3 August 1856
THE WEEK'S AMUSEMENTS. Mrthoi-olita* TiikOre.—The drama nf the Enchantres* waa produced at this theatre on Monday evening, and has been played through the week. The plot is mainly tbe same as that of tbe opera, as originally performed, but which waa much reduced in the veraion given here some time since by the Thillon trmipe. The choruses, and one or two nf the songs of the opera are retained in the drama. Tbe part of Stella, in the piece as now performed, was assigned to Mrs. Julia Would Collins, and waa well personated. She has a pleasing voice and manages it wilh skill. One or two of the aonga were given by ber wilh excellent effect. The songs falling to the lot of Mr. Collins in the drama, (Si the opera tbev are the task of an ither character,! were not given with any marked ability. The minor parta were fairly periormed by the aU&gt;ck company. The choruses were well sting by Ihe German performers, whoae pronunciation of Knglish haa much improved since their first appea...
The Can of Judge Terry. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 3 August 1856
The Can of Judge Terry. The decision of the Vigilance ('ommttlee in this case has not yet been made public, if it has been arrived at. It is not probable that it will Ih; much longer delayed. The general impression is that Terry will be banished, as it is the almost universat opinion that he should be. His absence from the State for a year will vacate his seat on the Su preme Bench, which is the great point to be gained, and which there is little hope of attaining by his resignation. He is unfit either in education or natural ability to hold the position to which he was elected, and under no circumstances, save such as have hitherto characterized our elections, could be have succeeded in reaching the station from which an indignant community have hurled him. It is to be hoped that his career, after leaving the State, will show that his experience in the past few months has made him a wiser and a better man. llutchinq's California Maoazink.—We have received the August number of this ...
The Seek Can. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 3 August 1856
The Seek Can. This case has excited considerable attention in our commnity from its peenfrarity, and from the influence its decision will have on our social condition. The position taken is sksSar to that held* under the Scotch law, that simply living together, with the general rcptttatioii of maintaining the connection ofmaa nnd wife, is sufficient to give the woman in case of her surviving her companion, the same rights of inheritance which she would possess did evidence exist showing that a regular marriage ceremony had taken place between them. Whatever may be the influence of this decision on the interests of the kindred of deceased persons in this State, it cannot but have a beneficial effect on our moral condition The peculiar relation in which Auguste and Melchora Deck lived is by no means an uncommon one with ns, and this judgment will perhaps result iv rendering the instances less numerous. Viewed in a moral light, the decision cannot but be commended ; whatever may be the...
