Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 5 November 1859

She Didn't Mean That.—The Neosho, Mo., Herald, relates the following amusirig incident of a Maying party; "Muggins—the übiquitous Muggins—at' tended a Mayday pick-nic on Saturday last. Being somewhat of a lady's man and good looking withal, it is not strange that Muggins should be found at the head and bottom of all pic-nics, quiltings and social gatherings in his immediate neighborhood. Well, Muggins was in 'clover'—the picknickers assembled in a beautiful grove, a short distance from town ; what with dancing singing and 'sparking' the time passed off unnoticed, and the shades of evening w ere fast approaching. Some ten or fifteen girls and boys were enjoying themselves in the play of 'Seven Kingdoms,' etc., and it was agreed to 'wind up' by kissing round, Muggins to begin the good work. Now it happened that Sue , a bright-eyed, rosycheeked lass, was at the extreme end from where the kissing commenced, and getting impatient, not only to start for home, but also to receive her share...

The Farmers' Song. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 12 November 1859

The Farmers' Song. We envy not the princely man, In city or in town — Who wonders if the pumpkin vines Run up the hill or down ; We care not for his marble halls, Nor yet his heaps of gold— We would not own his sordid heart For all his wealth thrice told. We are the favored ones of earth, We breathe pure air each morn; We sow—we reap the golden grain— We gather in the corn. We toil —we live on what we earn, And more than this we do ; We hear of starving millions round, And gladly feed them, too. The lawyer lives on princely fees, Yet drags a weary life, He never knows a peaceful hour— His atmosphere is strife. The merchant thumbs his yard stick o'er, Grows haggard at his toil; He's not the man God made him for, Why don't he till the soil ? The doctor plods through storm and cold, Plods at his patient's will; When dead and gone he plods again To get his lengthy bill. The printer, (bless his noble soul,) He grasps the mighty earth, And stamps it on our welcome sheet To cheer the farme...

Mining and "Cow" Counties.—The San FVancisco News Letter, in an article on California Bonds, says: Of particular counties and cities it is not our present intention to speak, but generally we are convinced investments in the various funded debts of California would prove entirely safe and highly remunerative. If there be any preference of one county over another it is in favor of the agricultural counties as against the mineral. Ist. Because the mines and mining lands are not subject to taxation, and 2d, because the population of a purely mining locality may not be permanent. But in all counties where there is even a moity of the territory agricultural, capitalists may calculate upon their interest and principal with perfect confidence. Principally because all these communities are prosperous and the real estate, (as new lands come into cultivation,) is increasing in value. Improvements are upon the increase and each year is adding to the assessment roll ot all the counties except t...

Incident of the War in Italy. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 12 November 1859

Incident of the War in Italy. "After the battle of Magenta," says an Austrian Lieutenant in the Mainzer Yolks Blatt, "when the Austrian* were compelled to evacuate Milan, it happened that a small troop of Croats were entirely separated from their comrades in the heart of the city, and thus were left behind to effect their own retreat. Their situation, it may be supposed, was not a very pleasant one. For, finding themselves in the midst of a hostile nation, without an interpreter or guide to direct them through the labyrinth of streets and thoroughfares with which the great capital of the Lombards abounds, they must infallibly have fallen victims to the popular fury had not Divine Providence so disposed that, in their erratic course, they should meet a young physician of the Austrian staff, who had both the tact and the courage to become their leader. No sooner had they told him of their embarrassment than he immediately offered to put himself at their head and lead them out of the c...

LINES. My western home! I love thee well! I love thee more than tongue can tell; No spot, how bright soe'er it be, Is half so dear, as thee, to me. There may be other climes as fair— Fan'd by the same sweet balmy air; But not to mc do breezes sigh So sweet, as 'neath a western sky. O'er thee our bright stars proudly wave— Our sons are bold, and true and brave; And linn they stand, as rock, or tow'r, — Keijardless of oppression's power. A gem of beauty bright art thou!— An cm'rald wreath is on thy brow ; And hearts with deeper feelings glow, When they on thee their thoughts bestow. Sweet Land! my heart is still with thee — With all things bright, and glud and free ; And e'er securely niay'st thou rest, Elysian-likc, the flowered West. Alice.

Presidential Aspirants—Charleston Convention. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 12 November 1859

Presidential Aspirants—Charleston Convention. MESSRS. Editors : Inasmuch as you manifest an ardent desire for the prosperity of the "Pacific slope," in your advocacy of the contemplated Pacific Railroad, and other projects, too numerous to mention here, and alike conducive of the development of her great innate resources ; and believing that these social advancements can only be consummated by a judicious support of such men as will most faithfully execute the will and sentiment—the principles—of Democracy, we all have, no doubt, a great preference for the man who shall bear the banners of Democracy successfully through the interesting Presidential campaign of 1860. If the commencement and completion of that great Herculean task is, as all other great achievements have been, to be the work of Democratic rule, it behooves us to see to it, that some man enlightened with the principles of progressive republicanism, and whose political proclivities favor the expansion of the '•Western E...
