Poetical. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 19 April 1862
Poetical. For the Journal. Sympathy. Oh ! spirit weak why dost thou ask J"or sympathy on earth, Know'st not 'tis a dangerous task, Oh! Thou, of lowly birth ? And that the loved one of to-day In life's exultant bloom, To-morrow may have passed away Unto the silent tomb ? In sorrow then thy wounded heart Would seek earth's smiles to sain, "Thoud'st find it here no hallowed part, And all thy efforts vain ; 'Then hope not in the world of wo To hold a kindred tic, '"While Truth says—thro' life's onward flow All things of earth must die, •Oh sympathy's not strong below, Yet most the right are given, •That purest love of earth to know, 'Ere yet they cuter heaven ; -And oh ! if heart can cling to heart In sympathetic love, ' 'Tis born of Paradise a part With blessings from above. April 4th '62. sister may. from Emerson's Conduct of Life.
The Eyes. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 19 April 1862
The Eyes. •A main fact in the history of manruns,'is the "wonderful expressiveness of •tto human body. If it were made of sgktss or of ftir, and the thoughts were written on steel tablets within, it could "not publish more truly its meaning than now. Wise men read very sharply all )jour private history in your look and gait and behavior. The whole econorrly of nature is bent on expression.— 'The tell-tale body is all tongues. Men •re like Geneva watches with crystal faces which expose the whole movement They carry the liquor of life flowing uj) *nd down in these beautiful bottles, and announcing to the curious how it is with them. The face and eyes reveal what the spirit is doing, how old it is, what aims it has. The eyes indicate the antiquity of the soul, or, through how many forms it has already ascended It almost violates the proprieties, if we say above the breath here, what confessing eyes do not hesitate to utter to every street passenger. Man cannot fix his eyes upon the sun...
Modern Martyrs. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 19 April 1862
Modern Martyrs. 1 Fox's cheerful "Book of Martyrs" j strikes us as incomplete. He tells, to , be sure, of people who have been roasted alive, cut up, torn limb from limb, disemboweled, and suffered various other trifling annoyances of that kind; but though I have perused it carefully, I sec no mention of the unhappy wretch who, coming home at twelve o'clock at night, with frozen fingers,gropes around his room, bumping his nose, and extinguishing his eyes, in the vain search for his match-box, the latitude and longitude of which some dastardly miscreant has changed. Nor do I sec any mention of him who, having washed his hands nicely, looketh in vain for a towel, whore a towel should be, while little rivulets of water run up his shirtsleeves, or drip from his extended fin-ger-tips. No allusion cither is made to her who, sitting down to her time-hon-ored port-folio, misseth one sheet of MS. which somebody has fluttered out, and straightway gone his heedless way. Nor yet of the unhappy ...

MARIN COUNTY JOURNAL. San Rafael, April 19th, 1862. ON the receipt of the news of the great Federal victory at the battle of Pittsburg Landing on the 6th, a shudder of dismay ran through the hearts of the secessionists of this vicinity, and curses, deep and loud, were heaped upon the head of "Uncle Abe;" and the Yankee nation generally. They renewed their vows of implacable hatred to the Federal Government, and talked about "fighting to the bitter end," and the "last drop of blood," and the impossibility of conquering the South. If the leaders of the rebellion do not yet know it, there need be no fears but that, among the masses of the South, there will be found plenty of Union men who will teach them this lesson in a summary manner — Union men who have gone through a long series of bitter experience, such as cannot fail to make them remember the country as it was before the revolt, and contrast it with the miserable, tyrannous, oppressive, and starving Southern Confederacy. When th...

CHANGE. — The editorial chair of the San Joaquin Republican is now filled by Wm. J. Beggs, Esq., who has formerly been connected with the press of San Francisco. Five murder cases are set for trial, at the present term of the District Court, at Nevada. PASSED. — The bill to allow H. J. May, C. M. Baxter, W. Cole, and associates to build a railroad from Petaluma to the Italian Gardens has passed both branches of the Legislature. WOOL. — The high prices of cotton do not seem thus far to have materially affected the prices in the wool market. A lot of thirteen bales, extra quality, sold at Stockton for 18½ cents, while inferior grades were selling at a considerably lower price. A girl named Elizabeth Lambert, aged 11 years, was recently united in the holy bands of wedlock to an old bachelor of 40 years. It took place in Mendocino county.
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 19 April 1862
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. SMALL FARMS IN THE MARKET. — We understand that the Nicasio rancho, containing. about 25,000 acres, is about to be put into market. Dr. Mathewson is now engaged in surveying and dividing it into convenient farms to suit purchasers. Persons residing on the land will have the privilege of purchasing the portions they occupy at fair prices, and the balance will be offered for sale in small farms. This will afford farmers with small means an opportunity to secure for themselves homes with a good title. The patent has recently been received and the title is perfect. This will also be the means of adding a much needed population, and consequently, wealth to our county. NO CLUE has yet been found that will lead to tho discovery of the person or persons who robbed Mr. Dubois. RECEITS. — We are ready to give receipts for the past year's subscription to those who are yet in arrears. Walk up! IN TOWN. — Assemblyman Gordon paid San Rafael a flying visit on Tuesday last.

SERIOUS INJURY. — Edward, aged 7 yrs., son of Mr. J. W. Ingraham, of Anally Township, fell from a horse one day last week, and had his left thigh badly fractured. Dr. Barnes of Santa Rosa, was called and rendered necessary surgical aid. — Santa Rosa Democrat. RATHER HARD. — A correspondent of the Nunda News, writing from the camp of the Thirty-third New York Volunteers, says: "There are many farmers [F. F. V. Planters] between Manassas and the Potomac who find themselves in rather a peculiar position in regard to themselves and property. What their enemies left their friends take. — There was a free black man living near the Chain Bridge, who owned about fifty acres, a span of horses, a few cattle, and lived by selling milk and vegetables in Washington. He was a strong pillar in the church, and familiarly known as Uncle Bob. The secessionists took his horses and cattle, and whatever else they considered of value, and when .they fell back and the Union men advanced, our boys found it...
Letter from Baltimore. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 19 April 1862
Letter from Baltimore. BALTIMORE, March 1st, 1862. Editor Marin County Journal: Being aware that quite a number of Baltimoreans have settled in Marin County, has induced me to become, for a while at least, your correspondent, to give an inkling of what is doing and what has been done in the Monumental City as well as the State. The Legislature has but ten days longer to remain in session, and is therefore hard at work in disposing of the various subjects before it. The House has passed the Bill to provide means for the defence of the State by raising a loan to pay the United States direct tax. The House adopted a series of resolutions, declaring that although Jeff. Davis, in his inaugural, asserts "that Maryland was naturally with the South, and should an opportunity offer she would join her destinies with the South," she was still true to the Union. The 22d of February was celebrated with unusual demonstrations on Saturday last. — In this city the day was ushered in by the firing o...
