€j)f £ast of git Barf. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 31 August 1856

€j)f £ast of git Barf. BY J. F. SMITH, ACTUOE Or "TD.E SOLDIER OF rORTCKE," " MISNI1 SECT," ETC CHAPTER XXlV.—Continued. He found the prisoner se tted by the narrow, grated window of his cell, and, to his surprise, strongly ironed. "Bless me!" he exclaimed, "is it usual to treat a respectable person—before trial, too —with such severity P " Tried to escape, sir,*' answered the turnkey. v How very imprudent," added the lawyer, who, at the same time, mentally wished that he had succeeded. "You may leave us together and return in an hour." leaving received the orders of the governor to that effect, the man, after fingering a few instants tn expectation of a gratuity—in which, it is needless to say, he was disappointed—disappeared, muttering something about the trouble, and carefully locked the door after him. For some time, the inmates of the cell regarded each other in silence, which the visitor was the first to break. " Well, Mr. Corner," he said, "this is an unpleasant position." •*...

How they Look at it on the Atlantic Side. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 31 August 1856

How they Look at it on the Atlantic Side. The New York correspondent of the Phil. Sunday Dispatch says: We are sorry to say that San Francisco, in expelling from her limits the outlaws who destroyed her peace and kept her population in constant peril, may have acted wisely euough for herself, but she has tilled us with afUictiou. All her triadd rogues and villains have wandered hither. They are to be seen, openly, every day in our streets. We had a tolerable share of guilt before. Now, what can we expect but assassinations and popular disturbances ? They begin to talk very volubly about a Vigilance Committee in this city. The police are, too many of them, in league with these ruffians ; and as for the courts, you may perceive by the impossibility of convicting Haker, that the administration of justice here is a miserable farce when such creatures are concerned. If the ancient system of astracism was only in vogue here, it would save us a world of painful perplexity. How rapidly we s...

Cool Impudence. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 31 August 1856

Cool Impudence. "We remained on board the Heron till the next day, when we were taken on shore attended by a guard of marines. AVhcn the last boat was loaded and about ready to shove off, a Yankee sailor from the Rattlesnake, having conceived a covetous love for a pair of trowscrs belonging to one of the English sailors, who was in irons, lingered behind, and seemed reluctant to enter. " Come, my man,'*said the lieutenant who superintended the embarkation, " heave ahead and go into the boat, unless you wish to enter His Majesty's service." " Bless your honor," said the Yankee, " I should be very glad to leave your brig, but I don't like to go without my trowscrs." " Your trowsers ! Where are they ?" " Why, sir, one of them chaps that's down below in irons has got 'em on. I lent 'em to him on board the schooner, and he wont give 'em to me agaiu." " Well, my man, come along with me, aud I'll see who will have them," said the officer. So down between decks they proceeded—the lieutenant...

There is no malady of deeper importance, either in a medical or moral point of view, to which the human faintly is snore liable than that arising from impure connections. As a medical man, it U the duty of every physician to look at disease as it affects health and life, and his sole object should be to mitigate, as far as lies in his power, the bodily raftering. Human nature is at best but frail; all are liable to misfortune, of all the ill-* that affect man, none are more terrible than those of a private nature. Dreadful as It Is In the...

THERE'S BEAUTY EVERYWHERE. ST. GEORGE, There's beauty all around us, abortus and below, In the moon's soft, silvery rays it's seen. It teems in the sunset's glow, [light.

Another God-send for Napoleon. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

Another God-send for Napoleon. Ihe recent tresncis in r ranee, ime every other circumstance, the Emperor has ingeniously used to further his popularity. When he made, his last trip to Augres, he took particular pains to inquire which of the inundated districts were inhabited by the most violent of his opponents, and forthwith betook himself to the places indicated, attended only by the Bishop and Prefect of the Department. Here he mingled familiarly with men whom he knew were thirsting for his blood, and when lie got into a boat to visit the scene of ruin, he selected his boatmen from among the most avowed and fanatical of hi* Republican enemies. The utter contempt of danger thus manifested, produced a complete reaction iv the minds of the people, and persons who had been his bitterest opponents ever since the inauguration of his dyiiasty. were the first to rend the air with shouts of Vive I'Empereur. Napoleon seems to be just the man to manage the French |«oplc, as no other could m...

She was really lovely : lair, with indescribable eves, and a figure only equalled by the chefs d<eu\ie of Italian art. Thai is so rare among I'ersian women, that .-lie was one of the lew perSMM 1 saw in that country with an approach to a good figure. She was dressed in the usual fashion of trowscrs on trowscrs. the last pair lieing of such stiff brocade, that if put standing upright in the middle of the room, then? they would remain. Her hair was curled not plaited, and she was literally covered with diamonds. She w as quiet in her manners, and seemed dejected. She was nio.-t anxious to hear about Kuropean customs. What seemed to surpri-e her most, was, that we took the trouble to undress every...

Mawkish Sentime t. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

Mawkish Sentime t. " Dear Punch : —You like a bit of nonsense, I believe. What do you think of this? * A man told me that he didn't consider that v criminal ought to be hanged for a foul murder, because we do not hang a scoundrel for a ruinous fraud. " I demolished this preposterous opinion by observing that loss of property is nothing to loss of human life. '• This booby then asked, why we were ready at any time to go to war on a question of pro|>erty ! So ridiculous a question required no reply ; bat I remarket] that war is a different thing from murder. He demanded in what respect? Well, I said, war is fair killing ; murder is unfair. So then, concluded my stupid friend, you hang for unfairness, not for killing ? On this principle you have as much a right to hang a rogue as to execute an assassin. 1 said,' I don't see that;' which shut him up, and left the best of the argument with yours sincerely, " Common Sense." "P. S.—l hate sophistry."— Punch.

Extraordinary Execution of a Marauder. All eyes were fixed on the Khan, who in a voice Of thunder cried, - Take him trom his horse and tie him to its tail.

As soon as the Khan had done s|>eakiiig, the Tartar, without uttering a sound, got odf. his horse, and calmly gave himself up to the soldiers who were to bind him.
