CITY NEWS. Another Arrest by inn Committee.—A man named Garland was arrested by the Vigilance Committee, on Friday morning about 2 o'clock, in the vicinity of the Committee's rooms, under singular circumst.inces. He appeared to be a stranger in the city, and represented that he wns cognizant of an attempt to assassinate Win. T. Coleman, Esq., on his way to New York, who left on the steamer ou Tuesday last. The officers of tbe Committee, having reason to believe that there might be something iv the statements of the man, took him into custody, and locked him up. Upon examination he was found to be clothed with two or three suits complete, which it is supposed he wore for the purpose ot changing his outward appearance with little inconvenience, by doffing tbe outer suit. He was armed with a large bowie knife and a llaag shot, which are the equipments of rascals. He was evidently a thief and a notorious rogue, as all the circumstances will fully justify. It is thought that he may be de...

The Anniversary of Arnold's Treason. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 August 1856

The Anniversary of Arnold's Treason. One of the law aud murder journals of this city, not content with its misstatements in its record ol the present, has even gone back to the time of the Involution, and by au alteration of dates to suit its purpose, endeavored to prove that the day of the Vigilaucc demonstration was the anniversary of the treason of lienedict Arnold. This attempt to throw discredit on the celebration in question was not attended by any greater success than has accompanied its previous efforts, und is therefore hardly worthy of refutation : but those who may have given credence to the'statement will do well to read the following, from the biography of Arnold, published in the Fnfffhptuiia Americana : — "Arnold and Andre, calculating anxiously the probable length of Washington's absence, MMHSMd thut-ho would return in three or four days - that is, on the twenty-fifth or ttrentfi-fristh >f Sptemher, and one or other ar tii'ksk lIAVS WAS FIXED ►OH THE EXEC!...

Marcus.—this is the story of Peeping Tom. of Coventry: " Leofrie Earl of Mersia, had imposed such heavy taxes on his citizens that his lady, ttodiva, moved by their entreaties, importuned her lord to remit them and he consented on the condition ot her riding naked through the city at midday. Her humanity induced her to consent and she so disposed her flowing tresses as to hide her person, and ordering all the inhabitants on pam of death to close their doors and windows, she rode quite naked through the town.

The Demonstration. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 August 1856

The Demonstration. The popular enthusiasm and endorsement of the acts of the Vigilance Committee, as evidenced in the display of Monday last, give to the closing phase in the active existence of that body a character at once creditable to them as the agents of popular reform, and cheering to those who have assisted in the jvork which has resulted thus triumphantly. The chagrin of the cliojue of law and murderlings to whom the [icoplc have thus administered an appropriate rebuke, was proportionate to the extent of the demonstration. At an early hour the various companies into which the military and police force of the Committee arc divided, were mustered and marched to the position assigned them for review on Third street, the entire length of which thoroughfare their line occupied. The sight presented at this point was an imposing one. Far as the eye could reach extended the lines of armed men, whose regularity and skilfulness of movemeut gave little sign of their having seen but a ...

Where Does the Laugh Come In t [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 August 1856

Where Does the Laugh Come In t The latest shine of the Sun in this city manifested itself in its advertising columns one day last week. On its fourth page appeared two columns entirely blank, with the exception of one or two general heads, and the interspersing of inexplicable locations with advertisement rules. We are assured by those in the plot that a stupendous joke is secreted somewhere in this arrangement, but although we have had the assistance of several gentlemen, who have the reputation of having discovered the point of several of the remarkably witty effusions which have graced the Herald recently, as well as that of an individual who has devoted some of the best years of his life to the perusal of the German Comic ■Vlmanae, originally published for readers iv the bterior of Pennsylvania, we have not yet found the exact place where the fun of the arrangement in question is located. Had these blanks occurred in the editorial columns of the Sun, they would certainly have be...

Open House in Sacramento Street [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 August 1856

Open House in Sacramento Street All the world and his esteemed lady have been paying visits to the Committee rooms in Sacramento street, during the latter part of the past week. High and low, old and young, all have been impelled by curiosity to take a look at the fountain-head of the exciting scenes through which we have recently passed. Before the attractions presented by the Committee rooms the theatre and San Francisco Hall have " paled their ineffectual fires," and Billy Birch and Lola Montez have alike failed to draw to their respective arenas of display the regular number of their enthusiastic auditors during the three evenings on which the counter-attraction has been operative. No other topic of conversation, save the curiosities displayed by the Committee, has been prevalent in social circles, and no one, not having all the facte in regard to those peculiarities at his tongue's end, could succeed in enlisting any amount of attention. After the appearance in the daily papers...

The Possibility of Disunion. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 August 1856

The Possibility of Disunion. Thorp is no phase of our politicul coti.lition which excites so thoroughly the contempt of thr patriot nnd lover of hi< country as the hypocritical pretence of the old party hacks that lhe existence or salvation of the I'nion is dependent on the success or defeat of v particular faction iv the coining Presidential election. To claim that the success of any party which is attained in the legitimate process of partizan warfare that the supremacy secured by a popular majority will l>e the signal for breaking up of the eoaJtsimßW of Slates is an insult to the paoplt of the T'nion. These flics on the ■Ipflull of the nation's progress, arc a<A content with the se!f-eomp!n,vnt condition they maintain through the egotism which persuades them that they are au important part of the body politic, but they would fain persuade the people that if by any accident they are brushed from their foot hold. romqiNUMfl mf tht BO*) cli.astr.xts...

Letters from my Lodgings.—No. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 August 1856

Letters from my Lodgings.—No. 1. I One Stokt Housi or Cut Btirt Him., -j August 21, 185«. Messrs. Editors :—Somebody (it is not necessary to give names) has very beautifully remarked that the character of a man is modified or otherwise influenced in it? development by the scenery surrounding the locality in which the first years of his existence are passed. It has always seemed to me, that if this position be correct, there is no reason why the same influences should not be operative in other periods of his existence. A temporary disregard of this principle, and a permanent pecuniary pressure existing cotemporaneously, induced me, during the summer of last year, to locate my dormitory in the neighborhood of the wharves, a region mainly remarkable for the great variety of odors and mosquitoes pervading its atmosphere. And although the influence of the climate in that quarter did not produce on my complexion the miraculous chauge of color attained in one night, according to tradition,...
