WAR NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 4 February 1847

WAR NEWS. The Army.—Kxtract of a letter to the New Orleans Delta, dated Matamaros, Jan. 9 : General Scott returned here on the 6th instant, from Camargo. He told me that every thing was quiet above, and no probability of any hostile collision at present. lie said, for the next ten or fifteen days he should he at the Brazos Santiago, and in (his place. He was asked, in my bearing, to what point he would go when he should leave here; he replied, to the point circumstances should make it necessary at the time. No one is authorized to aay on what point ho will move, or when he will go. It will be gratifying to the friends of Gen. Scott to hear that he is very well received by the troops. His commanding and military appearance, combined with the suavity of bis manners, has dispelled the prejudices and opinions of many who have never seen him. General Taylor—that slurdy old soldier—is much gratified to learn of the arrival of the General-in-chief of our armies. He has fame enough to preve...

Cononass and thk War.—These words we couple together, because In the present state of public affairs they are inseparable. If it be asked what Congress are doing—the reply is that they are talking about the war—some members lauding and some reprobating the Executive; but wilh few exceptions voting to raise all the men and money demanded for prosecuting the war, provoked by the President and sanctioned by themselves. The precipitancy with which both Homes of Congress complied with the demands ofthe President at the beginning ofthe war, and even echoed hia declaration that it existed by Ihe act of Mexico, (a declaration which aome asserted, and many more believed lo be untrue,) has proved a sad embarrassment to those who denounce it, both in speech und action. They sny that they voted for additional troops and the requisite appropriations, for the defence of our litlle army, and not for further invasion and conquest. But it is an awkward thing, after they had proceeded blindfold, to r...

MASSACHUSETTS LEGISLATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 4 February 1847

MASSACHUSETTS LEGISLATURE. Although much ol the time ofthe House of Representatives is consumed in matters touching moie or less directly our national concerns, yet ihe appropriate business of the Legislature is advancing probably with as much constancy and speed aa in ordiusry sessions. We deem il unnecessary lo copy ihe dry journals of proceedings, and shall indicate, in the progress of business before the two branches, such sayings and doings only as are of more general interest. On Thursday last, the debate nn Mr. dishing "a resolution for nn appropriation of #20,000 for Ihe volunteers terminated, and the House-refused a third rending by a vote of 47 in the affirmative, and 190 in ihe negative. Pit-fore the vote was taken, Mr. Cashing rose, and gave notice that he had accepted the rank of colonel of the regiment of volunteers, to which he had been chosen sinre he introduced his resolution, and consequently ahould abstain from ofTering any further arguments in its favor. He then ...

POETRY. REMINISCENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 4 February 1847

POETRY. REMINISCENCE. BY JAMES W. MILLER. Come sit with me, my true wife, Beside our cottage door; And us upon our upturned brows The life-warm sunbeams pour, We will look buck with grateful hearts O'er youthful days once more. O'er years that long hays faded. Like toil-ascend ing hill On gaze of way-worn juourneyer Whose step is onward still; And we will rest by pleasant spots. As he rests by the rill. By well rememembered brook sides, And under hallowed bowers; Aye. hallowed by the treasured thoughts, That bloom there like sweet flowers; Tlmt bloom nnd breathe, as when our youth Flung o'er them plensant showers. Like been wilh honey laden, On summer's gales of lmlin, When morning hours went riding by, And evening's slurry culm; And nil our thoughts were hopes und thanks. And life a shadeless charm. Then we had fair companions, JSi it-lit Fancy und Komance, Tin; one like sky-lark started up Hy morning's crimson glance ; The other, f-.rvciii-h.-aited, pure. As it'stal's holy trance....

MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 4 February 1847

MISCELLANY. Bi Somkt»int..—Some one baa most beautifully and truly said, that " man is the atbiter of, his own fortune—makes himself." The marksman who points his piece to the zenith of the heavens, will shoot higher than he who aims simply at the horizon. So it is in life. He who hopes for great things, and expects great things, and takes ' proper measures for securing great things, will iirI complish, we Ind almost said, infinitely more ihan he who is content wi'.h what he has, and is, and makes no efi'nrls "in the world. A sinking example of the principle we are now considering, is brought to view in the brief career tif the immortal Napoleon. His birth and parentage were humble. In his younger days, he was not thought lo be a youth of very UiMiaut parts. Rut he aimed h'gh. He hoped and expected great ihinjr*. And in his hopes and expectations, so fir as human greatness was concerned, he was not disappointed. On ihe scroll t*f fame, the name of the I'mperor of Trance stands highe...
