Mr. and Mrs. Librario. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 5 April 1862
Mr. and Mrs. Librario. I Isn't it astounding how men revel in " dirt ? Now there is Mr. Librario; if v his desk is dusted, it must be by " stealth, wTien the creature is out bookI I hunting, or when he is asloon, or smo1' jking, in which latter case, you might "amputate one of his foct, and ho s wouldn't know it, Now if I didn't " I always, before begining, make an ex",act note of the latitude and longitude 1 of every nasty bit of manuscript, ev- " cry tail end of a pipe, every old stub of a pencil, every precious old ink''l Cl'UStcd penholder, or crumb of a \vat for, and conscientously replace them all just where I found thcm.ho might talk; but haven't I a desk of my own, I'd like to know, and can't 1 enter heartily into that part of the feeling ? But when Mr.Libario tells me that he can't write as well when his desk is"clcared up;" when he faces mo out that dustydesk does not constantly involve dirty-shirt-wristbands ; when he lifts up both hands imploringly at sight of my nice li...

San Rafael, April 5th, 1862. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 5 April 1862
San Rafael, April 5th, 1862. Marin County Journal. Eastern News. — On the 23d. March Gen. Jackson attacked Gen. Shields, in force, near Kearn's store, three miles from Winchester. The Rebel's right were driven back half a mile, where their guns were got in position in a dense wood flanked infantry. A short artillery engagernent ensued, when Shields ordered Col. Tyler to turn their left flank, which was done with considerable loss. The Sixth Pennsylvania and Nineteenth Ohio charged, and the fight became general, and Col. Murray of the sixth Pennsylvania was killed. The enemy retired slowly bringing their guns to bear at every opportunity. Our men rushed forward with yells, when a panic ensued among the enemy, which our troops took advantage of, and followed them up, driving the enemy before them until dark, capturing three guns, three caissons, with muskets, equipments, etc. Gen. Williams of the 68th New York, commanding, reinforced Gen. Shields. Gen. Jackson's men were perfectly dem...
State Prison. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 5 April 1862
State Prison. --- WE have seen in several of the leading papers of the state an article entitled "Discipline at the State Prison," taken from the Solano Herald, which latter paper spoke of the state of affairs as they existed under the management of the old Board, and concluded by saying: "These practices have been abolished, and a better and more creditable system inaugurated." Some of these journals preserve a rigid silence as to this latter clause, with the apparent intention of blinding the people as to the credit the new board and officers justly deserve for their efforts in reforming the abuses into which the Prison affairs had fallen. We were well conversant with the old arrangement, and since the induction of the new officers, have paid the Prison a hurried visit; time being brief, our observations were not as extended as we desired. We noticed, however, many objectionable features having been abolished, convicts looking clean, healthy and willing as they performed their var...

POOR AND POETICAL. — One of the inmates of the Milford (Mass.) poor-house is Judea Y. Smith, aged ninety-four years. She can read without spectacles, has full posession of her faculties, and is very industrious, being anxious to knit all the time. She says she is living on unborrowed time; and, though poor on earth, hopes to be rich in heaven's everlasting treasure. GENERAL McCLELLAN DIRECTING WESTERN BATTLES. — Gen. McClellan sat by the telegraph operator at his head quarters Sun- . day; Gen. Buel the same at Louisville; and and Gen. Halleck at St. Louis; and the cir- . cuit being made complete between the three, they conversed uninterruptly for hours on the pending battle at Fort Doneldson, and made all the orders and dispositions of forces to perfect the victory and pursue the broken enemy. The battle was fought, as we may say, almost under the eye of Gen. McClellan. So remarkable an achievement has seldom adorned science. Discretion of speech is better than eloquence.
Salmon Rivor Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 5 April 1862
Salmon River Mines. The latest intelligence from these mines shows that there is a great scarcity of provisions, and that extreme suffering is inevitable. Mr. D.

Mr. James M. Day has written a letter, dated Walla Walla, to an acquaintance in Portland, in which he says: "If any of my friends from California should call on you, by all means advise them to remain in Portland until April or May." A gentleman just down from Salmon says the Dalles Mountaineer reports that about 25,000 persons wintered in the mines. All the provisions in the mines had been bought up, with the exception of a very little flour, which is s...
