Thackeray's Estimate of Women. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 24 June 1854
Thackeray's Estimate of Women. Thackeray has been accused of not entcr_ taining a very high opinion of the fair sex. His heroines are generally described to be demons i/l human form ; but, after all, the man has somewhat of good in his description of the female character. The following extracts from his letters to a young man will vindicate the truth of this remark ; 44 1 do not mean to tell you there are no women in the world vulgar and ill humored, rancorous and narrow minded, mean schemers, son-in law hunters, slaves of fashion, by. pocrites, but I do respect and admire, and almost worship, good women ; and 1 think there is a very fair number of such to be found in this world, and I have no Joubt in every educated Englishman's circle of society, whether he finds that circle in places in Bel g avia and May Fair, in snug little suburban villas, in ancient comfortable old Bloomsbury, or in back parlors behind the shop. It has been my fortune to meet with excellent ladies in every on...

DE LA VISTA- El nrgano de la vista es una de las obras mas curioaas y adinirables de la naturaleza; y Jaa tunicas, musculos, vasos y humores de que se ( compone, forman una armonia tan perfecta en.tre si, que dan un nuevo realce a la sublimi dad del Criador. El ojo es un cuerpo globular que se compone de tres tunicas, memhranas o jpieles, v de trcs sustancias llamadas humores. La tunica esterior es conocida con el nombre de eaclerotica, la de enmedio con el de choroi. des ; y la interior con el de retina. £1 priraero de los tres humores presupuestos ee llama acueo por que es como el agua, aunque su naturaleza es espirituosa, pues no Uega a helarse aun con el frio mas in tenao. El segundo se llama humor cristalino por ser trasparente y mas solido que los demas; es muy parecido a una lenta optica por ambos lados. Viene despues el humor vitreo, que siendo como la clara de un huevo y mas abundante que todos los otros reunidos, da al ojo la forma esferica y tiend mas espesura que el acue...
AMERICAN YOUNG MJEN. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 24 June 1854
AMERICAN YOUNG MJEN. Cos 2Vngefcs Star. American history presents many remarkable instances of young men taking prominent and commanding stations at an age which would be thought very young in other coun* tries. We subjoin a few striking examples, from the list of those who have passed ofl the stage of human action. At the age of 29, Mr. Jefferson was an influential member of the Legislature of Virginia. At 30, he was a member of the Virginia Convention; at 32, a member of the Continental Congress; and at 33, he wrote the Declaration of Independence. Alexander Hamilton was only $0 years of age when he was appointed a lieutenant col. onel in the army of the Revolution, aid de camp to Washington. At 25, he was a member of the Continental Congress; at 30, he was one of the ablest members of the conventicn which framed the Constitution of the United States; at 32, he was Secretary of the Treasury, and organized that branch of the government upon so complete and comprehensive a plan, tha...

Scar (he liank* of tliat LaDe Klvcr Bi' GEORGE P. MORRIS. Near the banks of that lone river, Where the water lilies grow, Breathed the fairest flower that ever Bloomed and faded years ago. How we met and loved and parted, None on earth can never know— Nor how pure and gentle-hearted Beamed the mourned one years ago. Like the stream with lilies laden, Will life's future current flow. Till in heaven I meet the ma den Fondly cherished years ago. Hearts that love like mine forget not; They're the same in weal or woe; And that star of memory set not In the gr.ive of years ago.

THIS STtfltY OF PLI9GANSER It was in the year 1705, the year the Hi eat battle of Blenheim, when Europe was 'h-vourinr her very heart in contests about the "Spanish Succession," that the Bavarian peasantry rose en mitsse. They were smarting under the bitter vengeance of the Austrian government, who v,.-i 'ed the gins of the prir.Ccs upon the people; they were ground to the very dust by imposts and cruelty, and had al ready in publio assembly addressed the Diet of liegensburg, declaring that "necessity forced them to arus " Two students, Piinganscr and Mendi, placed themselves at the head of the peasant insur. gents, and were everywhere victorious.
