THE INGRATITUDE OP MAN TO HIS FELLOW MAN is so often met with iv life thut testimonials, prompted by the Aver feelings of the heart, are oases in the Uie ef those who sacrifice their best days in philanthropic devotion to the alle elation of the ills of frail mortality.

TO ADHEMAR. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 31 August 1856
TO ADHEMAR. nima ami lkwis. I'm roving up the river of the past. Where thou and I, Adhemar, hand in handCheek pressed to cheek, whilom, were wont to stand, « Etching the golden mt ments as they passed ; Or, speechless, gate into each other's'eyes Until our souls arose in those expanses. And stood up, face tv face, exchanging glances Of love, then swooned away in exstasies. Cupid through us gained immortality— A passport through the gates of Eden won. Since, while our flame lent ardor to the sun, It held within itselra purily That lirted it above the thought or sin— And the full ssnctiou of both heaven and earth did win. My love for thee had not a parallel— The dusky Queen of Egypt hail ignored The diixy height to which my pBSsIIEB soared. Tlie burning Lesbiau, in her Island, Had never strung her lyre to such a height. Lest at the tension it had sprung apart, And lain all shattered, shivering, like her heart. Such love begot not Helen's fatal flight, As thou, Adhemar, in my breast in...
I GIVE THEE ALL, MY DEAREST — [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 31 August 1856
I GIVE THEE ALL, MY DEAREST — BT R. M. H CLril, I give thee all, my dearest! All that 1 have on earth ; 'Tis heller far than riches. Than fortune's pride of birth. For riches, love, may fly us. And pride but cause a smart; Then take the girt I offer— A pure and loving heart. The world may look on coldly; Well, let it look and frown ; The sun that rose enchmded Ha* g'ine in lustre down. Then say you truly love me. And never from me part. And take the gift I offer— A true and loving heart. The lords of earth may revel In wealth and idle ease; And thousands worship Mammon, Upon their bended knees; But we, though poor and needy, Will hear each other's smarts. And go through life together With true and trusting hearts.

' A Paris correspondent thus recounts the astonishing feats of a new hero in the world of magic : "The wonders of Signor Ilaga/.oni. whose a|v proachingdeparture for Loodotl fills m with dismay, have been exhibited for the last time at the Tuillerics. This wondrous magnetizer. called the ' man demon' in Italy, has produced more surprising effects in magnetism than have ever been witnessed before. The experiment of striking senseless was repeated the other night at St. Cloud.and tilled all the beholders with amazement. Siguor Hagazzoni placed himself at one end of the long gallery of the palace, upon receiving the indication, in writing, of the person chosen from among lhe company to serve as an example of his power, outstretched his hand towards his victim, who instantly fell, struck as with tlie lightning's blast, stiff and senseless on the floor. So long as Itagazzoni so willed it did the patient remain thus stretched out before him, to all aptiearaticcs dead—for it seems that thi...

J Selling a Gossip. " Have you heard the story about number 2RS ?" inquired the facetious Mr. C, addressing his funloving neighbor B. " Xo, I have not," replied B ; " let us have it" 'J* M to ° gr»ss." remarked 0. hesitatingly. " Oh, never mind. I can stand it: let me have it by all means," eagerly exclaimed B. " 1 tell you it is too gross." " All the Ijetter it will just suit me ; I like such jokes ; just shut the door there, and let mc hear it " " Can't do that, for O. stands there listening to hear me sell you. ■ " Well, if you're going to sell me, I should like to know how you're going to do it. Let's hear the story." "Why. I've told you the story twice already Two hundred and eighty-eight is twice one hundred and forty-fonr, and if that ain't too gross, perhaps yon will tell me what is ?" There was an ominous silence, and a sudden departure of the listener.
Ingenuity of the Wasp—Do Insects Reason. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 31 August 1856
Ingenuity of the Wasp—Do Insects Reason. As Dr. Darwin was walking one day in his garden, he perceived s wasp npon the gravel walk with a large fly, nearly as big as itself, which it had caught. Kneeling down, he distinctly saw it cut otT the head and abdomen, and then taking up with his feet the trunk or middle portion of the body, to which the wings remained attached, fly away ; but a breeze of wind, acting on the wings of the fly, turned ronnd the wasp with ils burden, and impeded its progress. Upon this it alighted again on the gravel walk, deliberately sawed off first one wing, and then the other, and having thus removed the cause of its embarrassment, flew off with its body. 1 i?«?* c ' ar S ea *' ""gel we ever read of, was seen .

Baron Steuben. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 31 August 1856
Baron Steuben. It was a severe task at first for the aid-de-camp of the Great Frederick to operate upon such raw materials. His ignorance of the language, too, increased the difficulty, where manoeuvres were to be explained or rectified. He was in despair, until an officer of a New York regiment, Captain Walker. who spoke French. stepped forward.and offered to act as interpreter. "Had I seen an angel from Heaven," says the baron, "I could not have been more rejoiced.'' He made Walker his aid-de-camp and from that time had him always at hand. For a time there was nothing but drills throughout the camp, then gradually came evolutions of every kind. The officers were schooled as well as the men. The troops, says a person who was present in the camp, were paraded In a single line with shouldered arms; every officer in his place. The baron passed in front, then took the musket of each soldier in hand, to see whether it was clean and well-polished, and examined whether the men's accoutrem...
Much too True and Significant [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 31 August 1856
Much too True and Significant The Herald, speaking of tlie revolution in t'alifornia, talks very sensibly of its cause and objects ; and remarks that "tbe time may soon come when we may be driven in like manner to take up arms to re-conquer an independence from out the hands of the rogues aud the politicians who have swindled us out of it." Such an event is uinong the probabilities of the future, not only in Xew York city, but throughout the Union. We are ruled, ridden ami roblnl by rogues, and there seems to tie little hope of ever getting rid of them peacefully through the ballot-box. Matters are tending steadily from bad lo worse. Tlie city and the nation are in the hands of rogues who are constantly grow ing more ami more impudent and unblushing in their villainy ; and the time seems to lie rapidly approaching w hen the people w ill be forced to rise in vindication of outraged justice, und string the rascals up to the nearest lamp post or tree. We hope, as much as we can, that s...
The Roman Soldiery. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 31 August 1856
The Roman Soldiery. When the Roman republic subsisted in full vigor the soldiers were rewarded by grants of land. An estate was allotted to the veteran, and he became entitle.! to the rents and profit as his retiring pay. instead of receiving a stijiend from the treasury. Such policy was wise and considerate. It was right that the public should enable those whose strength had been worn out in the service of their country, to enjoy the quiet and comfort of repose in their old age ; the boon was the discharge of a just debt, and at the same time this act of justice added greatly to the security of the commonwealth. The gray-headed warrior, who had served the republic with honor, was bound to his allegiance bygratitude. He taught obedience and loyalty to his son, and encouraged the youth to walk in the same path, and to hope for the same reward ; so that when his time of toil and danger should be fulfilled, he also might become the peaceful citizen of the State which lie has defended.—...

A Crimean nAecdote. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 31 August 1856
A Crimean nAecdote. Among the many stories of French courage, here is one in which wit is closely allied to it. In one of the late battles an officer was directed by tbe general to occupy a very dangerous post, and delend it to the last extremity. " But, general," replied he, " that position is indefendable." " Sir," responded tbe general, " that word is not French." Without a reply, the officer obeyed the order. After an obstinate resistance, he was brought into the ambulance mortally wounded. Upon making his rounds, the general recognized the officer. " Unhappy man !" cried he, " you should have retreated sooner. What have you done?" " 1 have taken a lesson in orthography, my general," replied the expiring officer, witty to the last
Etymology of the Word Polite, [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 31 August 1856
Etymology of the Word Polite, Polite nnd politeuess arc terms etymologically relating to a city. Polis was a city in Greece, and Polites a citizen. Cultivated manners distinguished the citizen from the rude countryman. A citizcu was a polite man. The etymology of the term points to society, and the true source of grace and refinement of manners and character. Isolation fosters selfishness and boorish habits.
