Overdoing Sunday. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

Overdoing Sunday. The Springfield MipmkiiiMM says :—" We know of men who labor all the week, leaving home iv the morning before their children are dressed, seeing them only through the day at hurried meals, and retiming at night after they have retired to rest ; and then, when the Sabnuth comes, they attend meeting in the morning. Icuch a olfeSß in the Sab-bath-school at noon, attend meeting iv the evening, with not a blessed hour of ndintßrhod repose in the family circle. Thus, tho weeks pass by, overloaded with a burden of care and weariness, and the children grow up with a very slight appreciation of a father's sympathies, and the lathers grow hard and stern, with none of the ameliorating influences of the society of their children. •• We do not think we have overdrawn the picture. We believe the truth to be popularly felt, that the Sabbath is anything but a day of repose. Many a time have we heard the statement that the labor of the Sabbath was the hardest of the week. If it is ...

Lord Eskgrove's Aggravation of the Crime of Murder. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

Lord Eskgrove's Aggravation of the Crime of Murder. Respecting this eccentric Scottish Judge. Cockburn iv his " Memorials of his Times," just published, says :—" As usual then, with stronger heads than his, everything was couuected by his terrors with Republican horrors. 1 heard him, in condemning a tailor to death for murdering a soldier by stabbing him, aggravate the offence thus, 'and not only did you murder him. whereby he was bereaved of his life", but you did thrust, or push, or pierce, or project, or propel, the lethal weapon through tho belly-band of his regiiueutul breeches, which were his Majesty's."

The Landlord's Joke. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

The Landlord's Joke. Not far from the city of Montgomery, in the State of Alabama, on one of the stage roads running from that city, lives a jolly landlord by the name of Ford. In fair weather or fou', in hard times or soft, Ford would have his joke. It was a bitter, stormy night, or rather morning, about two hours before daybreak, he was aroused from his slumbers by loud shouting and knocks at his door. He turned out, but sorely against his will, and demanded what was the Matter. It was as dark as tar. and as he could see no one, he cried out: '• Who are you. there?" " Iturdcr, and Yaucy. and Kllmore. from Montgomery," was the answer, " on our way to Tuscaloosa, tn attend court. We are benighted and want, to stay all night." " Very sorry I can't accommodate you so far, gentlemen. Do anything to oblige you, but that's impossible." The lawyers, for they were three of the smartest lawyers in the Slate, and all ready to drop down with fatigue, held a brief consultation, and then, as th...

The Charmed Squirrel. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

The Charmed Squirrel. A correspondent of a South Carolina paper relates the following, which, although not embracing anything particularly uovel. will be found interesting as being a matter of Tact :—" I was one day passing through the forest that surrouuds my homestead, and came tuddeiily upon a squirrel" of the common gray species, clinging, head down, to the trunk of a large tree. This was no unusual sight to me, and I would have passed on without giving it further notice, if a strange excitement, which appeared to possess the little animal, had not struck my attention. From fright or some other cause, a terrible agitation convulsed its frame ; it chattered and writhed in agony, while its eyes glaring fearfully, seemed fixed on "some object at the root of the tree, and utterly incapable of being turned away from the fascination that had caught their gaze. Astonished beyond measure at this singular exhibition on the part of the squirrel—for 1 could not from the place where I stood...

Foreign Gossip About Palmer. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

Foreign Gossip About Palmer. Kvery arrival from Fnglaud brings to us accoimts of seeues transpiring with refereuce to this great MM. The career and end of the great poisoner is likely to furnish material for speculation and gossip for a long while. The morbid curiosity which the case has excited will long survive. A great Fair has been held at Rudgley, his native town, to which thousands flocked from many miles around, and every spot where I'almtjr or Cook had drank or stood, or slept, became invested with a strange interest. The youth who had paid a large sum for liberty to sleep in the bed in which Cook had died, was. of course, present, and disbursed again largely for a seat in the pew in which Palmer prayed, or affected to pray. Roth I'almer's house and Cook's grave were exhibited at half a crown a head, and both exhibitions realized an amount that would have terrified the till on a crack night at the Academy. Two twigs from a wild tree thut looked sadly over poor Cook's resting...

Wetting Bricks [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

Wetting Bricks It is importaut that every one engaged in building should be well informed in regard to the durability of materials. Very few people, or even builders, are aware of the advantages of wetting bricks before laying them, or if they are aware of it, do not practice it. A wall twelve inches thick, built of good mortar, with bricks well soaked, is stronger in every respect than one sixteen inches thick built dry. The reason of this is, that if the bricks are saturated with water they will not abstract from the mortar that moisture which is necessary to its crystallization, but on the coutrary, will unite chemically with the mortar, and become solid as a rock. Oil the other hand, if the bricks are put up dry, they immediately take the moisture from the mortar, leaving it too dry to harden, and the consequence is, that when a building of this description is taken down, or tumbles down of its own accord, the mortar from it is like so much sand.

The Topic of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

The Topic of the Week. The exciting topic of the week has been (he proceedings iv (he case of Durkee and Band, indicted for piracy, and arraigned before the U. R. District Court. The law and murder presses have not only indulged in the most unseemly exultation over these prceedings. but have by every taunt nnd irritating expression they could devise, endeavored to excite the members of the Vigilance Committee into the commission of some hasty act. which would involve in its consequences a collision between the Federal authorities and its members. So far, these attempts have been as futile as similar ones proved to be in the earlier stages of the present crisis, and we trust that the good sense and moderation of the Kxecutivc Committee will still be operative to prevent any such disastrous consummation as the law and murderlings are striving to bring about. There is no present necessity for any steps on the part of the Committee of Vigilance. When that necessity docs occur, its actio...

The Importance of Advertisements. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

The Importance of Advertisements. It has frequently been said that the newspaper reader who omits the perusal of theadtrwUseraeots of the day is a great loser. NfttTriHmtsßdins; the enterprise which our newspapers manifest in collecting and giving publicity to general iiitclliirence it frequently hapjiens that important items are overlooked by those who pfruse only the editorial pur tiou of a newspaper. This is strikingly evidenced in the following instance. In the Evening Bulletin one day last week we found the following important announcement in advertisement form : Guaymae —Hon. John A. Godfrey, V. S. Consul Mr (iuaymas and all the ports of the (iulf of California, made his appearance in the Circuit Court ySstvrday. He was richly dressed and attracted much attention.

Burgoyne and Co.'s Affairs. Messrs Editors : Although anximisly awaiting some information, as you have promised to give me some time ajro, in regard to the affairs of BuiCOjM A Co., my expectations have not been realized yet, and I h:ipe, as the exciting times are past now, you will not forget A SI'BSCRIBEK. We have not allml. il to the affairs of Burgovne * Co. since answering the Brat letter from our correspondent, simply because we had not been able to learn anything of a satisfactory character. It appears now that Plume is not responsible for the liabilities of the firm, and Burgoync has no property except what is located in New York and is in the possession of the ; erson upon whom Burgovne Ai Co. were in the habit of drawing. An effort is being made by Burgoyne to get this property out •■f the hands of this individual.

A Great Discovery. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

A Great Discovery. One of the moat important medical discoveries of the age is the application of electricity to the elimination of minerals from the system, and a general detergent process. The experiments which led to this result were made by Professor Vergnes, in Paris, in 1852. Braithwaitc's Retrospect thus alludes to it: " In this great discovery chance or accident has played a part One of the inventors—M. Mane Vergnes,— occupied himself with galvanic gilding or silvering. His hands being in continued contact with solutions of nitrate and cyanuret of gold and silver, got covered with ulcers in consequence of the introduction of metallic particles. One day be plunged the diseased organs into the electrochemical bath, at the positive pole of the pile, and after a quarter of an hour, to the great surprise of the beholders, a small plate of metal brought into contact with the negative pole, covered itself with a thin coating of gold and silver, extracted from the hands of the opera...

What is Treason ! [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

What is Treason ! The law and murder presses have been somewhat lavish in their bestowal of the term " traitor," during the progress of the reform movement. However unpleasant this appellation might be under ordinary circumstances, it is not difficult to endure when we take into consideration the sources whence the offensive expressions emanate. Those engaged in a revolution are usually classed among "rebels" by those against whom their action is directed, until they establish their claim to another title. It might be supposed that in the face of the fact that an overwhelming majority of the people of this community are in favor of the action of the Vigilance Committee, the opponents of that organization would refrain from the utterauce of a slander so manifestly false and absurd. It might lie urged that in a community recognizing the people as the source of all power, those who were found in opposition to the will of the majority were justly entitled to the term of " traitors," and...

CITY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

CITY NEWS. Marital Difficulty.—Mons. Dututtre complained yesterday, before Judge Van Ness, of Mons. Jules Bressord, that he had committed a violent assault on him, a few days since, resulting from jealonsy in respect to his wife. Mons. Dututtre is the proprietor of a country scat on the picturesque banks of Mission Creek, to which spot Mad. Bressord makes constant visitations—Mons. Dututtre being a butcher, and Mad. B. a charcutiere, or sausage vendor. Mons. B. becoming jealons, sent a challenge to Mons. D., to settle the question of an interferenre in his marital rights, which Mons. D., not being as bloodyminded as his business would denote, refused acceptance. Mons. H. then proposed that a treaty should be entered into, the stipulations of which were, that Mons D. wonld cease visiting Mud. 8., but the messenger of peace was dismissed summarily. Mons. 8., being an old soldier, could not brook this, so when he encountered his rival in his wife's affections, he slapped him in the fac...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

NEWS OF THE WEEK. The September number of the California Mining Journal contains the following review of tIV Condition of the mining region during the past Reason :—'lie Northern Mines, during the past season, have paid better probably than ever bef. ire. This circumstance is owing in part to the fact that they have not generally been so u.Ucll exhausted as the central mines, and in a measure also ?> the abundant supply of water during the season. In no part of the State has the mass of miners met with so great average success. The hills have not yet been thoroughly prospected, but when the gulches and flats shall have been more generally exhausted, more attention will doubtless be turned to them, and no doubt with equal success which has attended like explorations in older portions of the mines. The Central and Southern Mines have done moderately well the past season ; but a large amount of capital has been expended in heavy adventures, from which hut little has as yet b...
