The Situation of Walker. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 31 August 1856

The Situation of Walker. If the news received by lheGolden Ape be reliable. the ]N>sition of the |>seudo-President ol Nicaragua is anything but a pleasant one. He is stated to huve only twelve hundred troops, while liivas, his lormer ally and mmf Mitt, is at Chinandega with three thousand men, aud has the sympathy of the entire country in his favor. Tbe last act of Walker has entirely deprived him of the native support, ami he can only rely on the Americans who are in the country. This is the result long foreseeti by those who have noted closely the progress ol events in Nicaragua, and shows clearly the absurdity of the views of those who imagined that the filibuster leader could ever become the ruler of that country with the consent of its people. His downfall Is now only a (pjcstion of time, and it may not be many weeks before he is agaiu a fugitive. It is fit that such au enterprise as his should come to an inglorious conclusion. Tbe government of Walker has...

Ile immediately resumed his scat in the House of Representatives, and distinguished himself by a violeut attack on the Vigilance Committee of San Francisco.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. Memnon.—lt was not only 'hose who were reformers in the religious sense (if the word who suffered persecution in the benighted periods of the world's history. Inventors, or say who made improvements in the arts, were equally unfortunate. Bonnet, in his History de la ilusiqae, gives SO accouutof an eminent mathematician, mechanician, aud musician, named Alix, who lived at Aix, in Provence, about the middle of the seventeenth century. " Alix, after many years' study and labor, succeeded in constructing au automaton figure, having the shape of a human skeleton, which, by means of a concealed mechanism, played or had the appearance of plavmg, on the guitar. The artist, after having tuned in perfect unison two guitars, placed one of them in the hands of the skeleton, iv the position proper for playing, and on a calm summer's evening, having thrown open the window of his apartment, he fixed the skeleton, with the guitar in its hands, in a position where it could be ...

GENERAL GOSSIP. * * An Knglish pa,>cr states something that is cither a hoax, or exhibits lamentable verdancy on the part of the " students of divinity." It is to the efleel that three young students of divinity, who expected to be ordained by the Bishop of Chester, have been hoaxed by some Cambridge '■ gents ;" one of whom personated the Bishop, others clergymen, and others agaiu domestics ; in n house at Chester, the candidates underwent examination ; next day they were ordained, as they thought, entertained at dinner by the pretended Bishop, and ultimately departed to the localities where they had been promised appointments. It was not until they had been acting as clergymen for some time that they discovered the supposed ordination to have been a shameful trick. * * At the Cuyahoga Locomotive Works, Cleveland, 0., there is an ice manufactory, where this article is produced in merchantable quantities by purely artificial means.

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 31 August 1856

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. A Mr. Robinson held a note of a small amount against one of his neighbors, which he found some difficulty in collecting. He had applied several times, personally, for payment, and sent " duns" enough to choke an honest man ; but the " shiners" did not come. The neighbor always found some excuse for not paying. He had not the money, or thought his creditor too hasty ; he scorned to be coaxed, and was angry if threatened. So things went on. One day the debtor was at the house of Mr. Robinson, who produced the note and requested payment It was refused. " Well," said Mr. Robinson, " I will not quarrel with or sue you ; but," walking towards the fire, " if you do not pay me, I'll burn your note. I will not have the note of such a slack, dishonest man in my possession." The man was so chagrined and mortified by this " cut" upon his honor that he " paid up" forthwith. An amusing incident occurred a lew days since. A certain lady had been much annoyed by the ringing of ...

XT GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 31 August 1856

XT GIRL. BT It. M. mVixrk. Playing, playing round me, playing, By the fireside warm and bright. Is a little rosy cherub, Oh ! she is a gem of light! Rolling o'er the carpet there. Pulling at the rocking-chair. Running, running everywhere. Little prattler, void of care ! Now she's in the room, now out, Now she's sitting by the stand ; Now she's scolding Pont about, Now she pats him with her hand. Thus she goes around the room, Now she's got the poker—broom— Now she's crying—now she talks— Now she's running—now she walks. Now she falls—anon she's up. Going, going all the time; Never knowing when to stop, Now she's singing some old rhyme. Thus, from early morn till night. Romps this little cherub brightGem of hope! with golden hair, All around me, everywhere. She is only three years old, Only three years old to day; Does she think of after-times, When black hair will turn to gray? Ah, she never thinks, not she, Of the days that are to be ; Of the hopes, and cares, and fears, Days of to...
