Old Block and Mr. Whittlestick. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 December 1854
Old Block and Mr. Whittlestick. An interesting correspondence having occurred between these two occasional contributors to the California Press, we seize the earliest opportunity of giving it the publicity its importance demands. The penknife alluded to is on exhibition at our office of publication. Grass Valley, November 2?, 18S4. My Pear H7i ittlestick .-—I have been much amused in reading your explorations in the mountains of the HayCity, in company with Mr. Toots, and the celebrated W. Micawber, Esq., Gent, which somebody has kindly sent me. It is so long since I vegettted in the vegetable trade, or squashed out in the squash busiuess on Long Wharf—(May Heaven forgive Tobin A Duncan for piling up that brick mass on my old stand) —that my memory of the Geography of Upper San Francisco was vague and uncertain, until refreshed by your Explorations. Your discoveries, your descriptions, your adventures in that romantic region, impressed my mind with the strong probability that some f...
UP-HILL WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 December 1854
UP-HILL WORK. It will need no detailed description to convince the reader that the stalwart individual whose likeness heads this sketch is engaged in a labor that may be very properly termed up-hill work in the strictest sense of that too widely applicable term.

WEIGHING THE DUST. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 December 1854
WEIGHING THE DUST. And now it remains to be wen whether Hope or Disap- j pointment be the rulinp spirit of the evening; whether in the happy accomplishment of the hazarded pucss, the retrospect of the day's toil and it. incidents shall be a pleasant one; when each little detail of the discverv of this piece and that piece shall he dwelt OH hv lohih that never tire to talk, and hearkened to hv ears that delight to listen ; when gratulation on -gratulation Hows from happy lips, and the eyes Mgbieil with the fulness of a contented heart, till sleep weighs down their lids j or in ' the revulsion of tW-ling that follows an unweleoine disclosure of the balance, ploom sits on every lace, and moodily and slowly the evening passes away, each wondering how he could have been so mist..ken in his estimate, each lull of the disappointment his hojH-s had sustained till the reaction comes, and all retire to rest with the fixed purpose of rising to the morrow's duly with hearts as light as the weig...
WRITING HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 December 1854
WRITING HOME. Next to tbe pleasure or the pain of receiving letters may be classed the joy or sorrow of inditing them.— "How the old time comes o'er us." Tin-group of friends 1 or relations that await so anxiously the opening of tbe , epistle are in plain view before us as the pen passes over paper vviih the rapidiiy of Fanry. Are they ail there?— \ rises from the heart to the mind like a deadening miasma, all dark and gloomy. Or, |H-rrllaiici-, it may be only one whose form flits before the eye of the heart, as the thoughts fly from the head to the hand; and one sweet face banishes all other memories. Doubled is the sorrow that must be communicated to the loved ones! ! Doubled the joy we ask them to share! Bow carefully is each word weighed that tells of ill-fortune! How- fearful ■ are we that our misfortunes may be overrated! How ; cheerfully does the sad heart seek to guide the pen that : tells the tale of its discouragement! But w hen the theme I is joyous, how the pen flies, va...
Early Life of John C. Calhoun. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 December 1854
Early Life of John C. Calhoun. An old school-fellow and associate of the late John C. Calhoun, who signs himself "A. Bow ie," residing in Talapoosa county, Ala., in a letter to the Abbeville Bnnior, gives some interesting reminiscences of the early life of the great southern statesman. He says thnt in 1810 Mr. C. was practising law at Abbeville Court House, the late Gov. Noble being his partner. He was much udmired tor his conversational powers, and the young gentlemen of the place were in the constant habit of assembling in the summer evenings on Mr. C.'s piazza to listen to him. He was also iv the daily habit of walking for exercise, nnd seldom turned before he had accomplished a mile and a half. Mr. Bowie adds:—"Thiscxcrcise was usually taken very early in the morning, and he was generally willing to have one of his young friends as a companion—not to enjoy their conversation, but to benefit them by his. I remember on one occasion he invited me to accompany him in his morning str...
A Big with a Lady's Parasol. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 December 1854
A Big with a Lady's Parasol. Punch, you naughty fellow ! You laugh at our bonnets, and the funny way in which we ladies wear them. I only wish you gentlemen would look at your own dress a little before you think of laughing at ours. Our bonnets, after all, are not half so ugh as your hats nasty black things, that have no more shape 'in them than ail elephant's leg. I'm sure 1 should be lorry to put the slice of a chimney-pot on my head ! I wish you could see yourselves you would be it little more careful then bow you go out of your way to ridicule us. As for your scarfs, also I would sooner go bare-necked than put' round mv throat anything half so nonsensical. Why, I have seen young gentlemen wear iieek-handkerrhie'fs no thicker than the ribbon we should think of putting round the neck of a kitten. They are not half so broad as watchribbons. I declare, in size they are no broader than the white satin favors we tie tip wedding-cake with. You w ill Ik- wearing your shoe-strings for a ...

The hoarders in one of the fashionable houses in Brooklv ■ wen' assembled in the public parlor one stonnv . v Bang a few mouths since, when a rather antiquated maiden lady, who never 888881 to have any cmplov mrnt hut admiring her jewelry and dresses, lisped out the remark that she loved a rainy day, and always availed of one to arrange her draw ers.

"Pike County" at Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 December 1854
"Pike County" at Sea. Sea voyages are great hum.nigs. We arrive d at this opinion at an early stage of our marine experience, (one liour after starting on our " e\eursion to the fairing banks."| and we have never had 0 xasion to change it. Whether on v schooner, ship, 01 slesimer, tlie Mfttwton* ami dreariness is the same. The same matutinal natisoousness of mouth comes with the rising sun : the same indisposition to eat accompanies breakfast; ami a dttWOtttented dinner winds up the day. Em if the hread hi' good ; even if the coffee does not roa-d-d beans nnd chicory ; even if the tropics do not insist on your helping yourself to butter with a spoon ; a sea voyage is a nuisance, the annoyances of which monopoly conipunies take good care shall not be rendered fewer in number. The starting is all very well. Smith, with whom you have left TOUT money tor investment, and BfXJWU, wbOM note you have held for two years, comedown to see you off; of course, with all their available force of a...
