EDITION FOR THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 17 August 1856

EDITION FOR THE CITY. The Vigilance Committee Demonstration. To-morrow will be a proud day in the history of San Francisco. To-morrow the body by whose organization our city .has been redeemed from the rule of the rowdy, will celebrate the consummation of their labors in a display as imposing as it will be appropriate and popular. For the first time since their formation the entire force of the Vigilance Committee will parade in their capacity as citizens exultant over a great work accomplished—for the first time they appear divested of their terrible attributes as ministers of justice and conservers of public order. To-morrow they give tlie lie to the slanders that have been hurled upon them of having abused power, maintained an iniquitous secrecy, and forfeited the noble confidence of their constituents. To-morrow, in the serried ranks of their numbers, iv the popular enthusiasm which will greet them, in the chagrin of their few and feeble opponents, there will be for them and the...

The Inauguration of Walker. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 17 August 1856

The Inauguration of Walker. Nicaragua, according to the latest intelligence, rejoices in the possession of no less than three Presidents. Of these Walker was elected al Cranadn. Ri vas at Leon, and Kstrada at Segovia. The principal item of news received from that country by the late arrival, is the account of the inauguration of the filibuster President, of which the .Vtrvjrngtiensc gives full particulars. After the oaths of office were administered, the inaugural address was delivered. It commences by admitting the dangers which beset the new government, and ap|iealing to the people and the army lo sustain it. It declares the present era to be equal in importance to that in which the Spanish authority was overthrown, and trusts that the revolutionary epoch, which commenced in 1821, closes with the accession of the present government. After alluding to the efforts of the neighboring States to prevent the existing state of affairs in Nicaragua, which the new President very naturally ...

The Khymiters' Bow. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 17 August 1856

The Khymiters' Bow. The public have been edified during the week by a controversy in relation to the merits of Caxton's Prize Song, in memory of James King of Wm. This teapot tempest was begun by the Chronicle, in which appeared the following ill-natured paragraph : Monet Unlawfully Obtained.—lt is not known that the author of " The Burial of Sir John Moore" ever received a penny for his beautiful ode, yet we learn from the public prints that "Caxton" receives twenty-five dollars for an original composition drawn from that celebrated elegiac. Now we are entirely at a loss to sec on what basis any charge of" money unlawfully obtained" could be built upon against Caxton in this instance. A prize was announced, a sum of money offered, and the person offering it, awarded it to the author of the composition which suited his purpose. If the person receiving the poem and the individual paying for it were satisfied, any interference in the matter by an outsider cannot but be regarded as imp...

Gymnastics. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 17 August 1856

Gymnastics. 11l the Teacher's Convention, held bast week al Henicia, the subject of gswimlkl in lhe public schools was pretty generally though nut thoroughly discussed. The question appenred to be treuted as though the ea.se were tuiiid ml muscle; and that the latter alone wits to be regarded as susceptible of improvement in a gymnasium. 'I'he mistake is got an uncommon one, and grows out of the general idea tlmt for every physical malady there is a smcific remedy: that for overwork of the brain \ nothing is so good as the physical exhaustion or fatigue consequent on muscular exercise. With this idea prominent, it was not surprising that lhe representatives in that convention from the country should assert that for their pupils gymnasia were unnecessary—that children in the country had exercise enough, a point which the city teachers feebly endeavored to meet by the argument that no ordinary exercises brought into development all the muscles, or tended to produce a jierfect physical...

The Trial of Herbert [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 17 August 1856

The Trial of Herbert The farce of Irving this man in Washington had. at the late-t 1000— 9, concluded in the disagreement of the jury, and announced for repetition, with liltle prospect ol a satisfactory termination. It is a melancholy spectacle to witness the efforts being nutde at the capital of a nation professing t,, l>e republican, for tlie acquittal of Ihe assassin of Keating. The most prominent of the politicians who have expunged patriotism from the creed of statesmen, apjieur to have uiiitnl their efforts for the accomplishment of this end. The Pistrict Attorney who conducted the prosecution shainefullv neglected his duty, and in the most barefaced manner -poke of the criminal ('ongrossman as his •• | M tsonal friend."

President Pierce and the Vigilance Committee. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 17 August 1856

President Pierce and the Vigilance Committee. The last hci|K' of the law anil murilcr fuel ion was dissipated try the intelligence received by the Stephens. 1 11,. I'resident has refused to interfere in our local affairs, and though the statement is doubtless true that " the federal government is opposed to the action of the Committee." the opposition of the present administration is not calculated to injure the pros|Ki't.s of the reform movement, for of all the weak incumbents of the Presidential clmir who have been a burthen on our country for the last fifteen years. Franklin Pierce is certainly the one least entitled to respect or admiration. In the present business, however, he must be admitted to have acted with discretion. The expectation of any interference on the part of the Federal authorities, was a very absurd one, and would not have been entertained by any individuals in a less dcs|>crute position than that maintained by the law and murder warriors whose defea...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 17 August 1856

Davenport they learn that Snow's train, consisting of six wagons and four hundred head of cattle, fmm Illinois, had reached Trachea Lake. He reports a large emigration on the road.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. Mcsicos.—" A few evenings since, in a conversation with some foreign musicians in this city, I stated that the Grand March in Norma, played at the exit und entrance of the Druids, (if I recollect rightly) was au American composition, and not a portion of the original opera, as composed by Bellini. This statement raised a general laugh; but lam confident that 1 have seen the fact so stated on good authority. Can you throw any light on the subject V Not much. A friend at our elbow says, that in the Philadelphia Saturday Courier, some years ago, there appeared a biographical notice of Mr. Fry, the American composer, and author of the opera of Leonora, in which it was stated that in preparing the opera of Norma for production in English, in that city, by the Wood troupe, it was found that one or two awkward pauses occurred, which, although common ana almost unnoticed in Italian operas, would be liKeiv to prove detrimental to its success when prMBOeOM English.

GENERAL GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 17 August 1856

GENERAL GOSSIP. * * A Southern paper, of late date, says that the " wild man of Texas," who lives in the woods, but is occasionally seen rambling on the prairies, was recently pursued across a prairie by a party of hoi semen, that had come upon him suddenly. The wild man, who is of gigautic stature, ran so fleetly that but one horseman could gain upon him, the horses of the rest of the troop being too slow. On seeing that his pursuer was lessening the distance between them, the fugitive turned, and, with an awful yell, charged back upon the horseman, who, affrighted, wheeled his horse and fled. But the wild man. with a few gigantic leaps, reached his side, tore him from the saddle, hurled him senseless to the earth, mounted his horse, dashed over the prairie, and was soon beyond the reach of his pursuers. * * The Dollar Newspaper says : " Flounces are all the rage this season among the gentle sex. You can hardly be able to distinguish the embonpoint of one of your lady friends from ...
