RICHARDS' AMERICAN VERMOUTH, AND SPICE ANDJWORMWOOD BITTERS. THE UNDERSIGNED WOULD RESPECTFULLY CALL attention to the above aricles manufactured by them, as being the most superior of any ever offered to the public. The \ ertnouth is an invigorating Cordial, particularly recommended as an antidote for a sluggish state of the digestive organs, and the removal of an exhausted vital energy. It is a superior tonic and anti-dyspeptic and complete regenerator of a weakened system. Invalids suffering from loss or appetite, indigestion and torpid state or the liver, caused by over indulgence of vitiated appetites, and also by residence in warm climates and fever latitudes, will derive great benefit from the use or the Spice and Wormwood Bitters, and to auch we particularly recommend them. W"c would especially remark that great discrimination should be used by the invalid, in procuring such a composition of wormwood or spice, either in the form of a cordial or bitter, as is entitled to the h...

The Returned Representative. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 21 September 1856

The Returned Representative. The return of the waiter-killing Congressman to California is either an evidence of the most singular self-delusion on his part or a piece of unparalleled audacity. It might reasonably be supposed that the tone in which California newspapers have almost universally alluded to his crime, and the cxistencee in ortr midst of a body organized expressly to make up for legal shortcomings in the infliction of punishment tm criminals, would have amply sufficed to convince him that the State which had sent him to Washington was by no means anxious to recall him. and that his return might be attended with personal danger. But for some reason or other he has seen lit to return, and was appropriately welcomed by a committee of citizens who presented him wilh a request from some two or three thousand of his constituents requesting his permanent self-expatriation. It remains to be seen what course he will take under the circumstances. We think it is due to the honor o...

Letters From My Lodgings—No. 3. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 21 September 1856

Letters From My Lodgings—No. 3. { One Story House on Clay Street Hill, September 18,1856. Messrs. Editors :—I have been celebrating a foreign Fourth of July. This fact may seem less inexplicable to you when I inform you that Tuesday last was the anniversary of Mexican Independence. My friend Spiggs (who was in the Mexican war, and is said to have acquired distinction) made his appearance in my room at an early hour, and insisted on my accompanying him on the evening of that glorious day to what he was pleased to term a tcrtulia, —a name which I have been enabled to recollect from the fact, that while in my own room, Spiggs covered several sheets of paper with the word, inscribed in all varieties of text. Being in blessed ignorance of the Spanish tongue, Spiggs suggested that I devote the remainder of the day to the perusal of a copy of Ollendorff's Method, and took his leave. I immediately commenced the study of the useful book in question, and had I not indulged in one or two naps,...

The Salaries of Teachers in the Public Schools. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 21 September 1856

The Salaries of Teachers in the Public Schools. The teachers in the public schools of this city have never received any remuneration in keeping with the extravagant salaries received by our public officials. And although we should not lie pleased to see them brought up to the exorbitant standard which prevails in the city and county offices, we can -cc no reason why. if the principle be admitted that good pay secures valuable services, und thus.- services cannot otherwise be obtained, il should not apply as well to those who are entrusted with ihe education of the young, a.b> as those whoso duty it is to wafch over the public interests of adult members of the community. And if retrenchment is to lie undertaken, it appears t<> us that the emoluments which are accorded our Sheriff and County Treasurer und other oflicials. should bo materially lessened, before the pruning process U introduced into ihe management of the schools. If economy is to tie here...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 21 September 1856

NEWS OF THE WEEK. The Pacific Mail Compnny's steamer Sonora arrived on Tuesday night last. She brings two weeks later news from the East, und about four hundred passengers, one hundred and twenty of whom are women, and sixty children. Her news is interesting. The troubles in Kansas are suid, by telegraphic dispatches received just before tbe sailing of tbe steamer, to have commenced again. Congress, having failed to puss the army appro priation bill, was reassembled by the President in extra session, immediately after its adjournment. The cause of the difficulty appears to be that the Repablican party in the House of Representatives insisted on attaching an amendment to this bill, providing that no part of the Federal forces should be employed in enforcing the pretended Territorial laws in Kansas, nnd requiring the President to use the military force in said Territory to preserve the peace, suppress insurrection, repel invasion, and protect persons und properly therein, and upon the...

CITY NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 21 September 1856

CITY NEWS A Shooting Case-Probable Fatal Injuries.-Our city has again been disgraced by a personal assault and shooting affair. There appears to he no circumstances that will deter people from the use of the deadly weapon when excited with fancied wrongs. The case referred to occurred on Friday morning, at the comer of Sacramento and Kearny streets, and the parties were two Germans, named John Schoener and J. H. Schaeffer, and the latter was shot by the former through the right arm and into the body. The wounded man was carried into a neighboring drug store, where his wounds were dressed by Drs. Rowell and Regensburg, after which he was removed to No. 6 Pike street, at the house of some friends. The cause and particulars of the conflict appear to he as follows :—Schoener is a married man, engaged in the Franklin Hotel of this city, and his wife is employed by Schaeffer, who is a baker at Sacramento. The husband and wife have been separated some time, and the wife is now suing for a ...

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. Gymnast.—" In a recent article on physical education, or a kindred topic, you took occasion to underrate the value of gymnastic exercises in their influence on the health. Will you oblige me by stating whether those conclusions are derived entirely from your own observation anil experience, or are sustained by the conclusions of other writers on the subject?"— The opinions we have expressed on the subject were the result, entirely, of personal observation, but we are not alone in the conclusions arrived at. We have frequently, since forming those opinions, met with the views of eminent writers coinciding completely in them, and since the appearance of the article to which you refer, the following, by one of the compilers of tincyclopadut Brit".nniea. tell under our notice: "It has been praised , to make gymnastics a part of the regular bu«i"Oss ol education.

GENERAL GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 21 September 1856

GENERAL GOSSIP. * * An Albany justice discharged a defendant, under charge of bigamy, recently, holding that there was DO bigamy between the first ami second marriage, because the statute ot limitation (three years) expired before the complaint was made.— Second, there was no bigamy between the marriage of the tirst and third, because the first wife died prior to the date of the third marriage. Third, there was no bigamy between the second and third wife, because the marriage of the second wife was void, inasmuch as it was consummated whilst his first wife was living. * * The United Service Gazette says, that 1.500 or 1,800 of the Italian Legion now at Malta, will proceed to Buenos Ayres as military settlers, the Government of the Argentine Republic being anxious for their services. Proposals have been made to locate them in that country, and give each a habitation or farm, where they can acquire independence and plenty. There are at present about 1,500 Italians settled in the above...

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 21 September 1856

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. In a metropolitan auction-room, on a certain occasion a little German Jew. who was slowlvand shrewdly making his bid, was addressed by a'near bystander with : —•' There is a very disagreeable odor about here : what rrm it be V " Yuas," he replied unhesitatingly," dat ish my vect ?" " Your feet: —then why don't you retire" from the room, and not mingle with gentlemen? The odor from your feet is very offensive.''

SPECIAL NOTICES. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 21 September 1856

SPECIAL NOTICES. t3r~Dr. L. J. Ctapkay.—The honorable and consistent course of t.lis gentleman has won for him imperishable respect. Not won by traducing the character of others, or seeking to build up his own by the ruin of another's fame; but relying solely upon the public value of his services, he has pressed on to the mark of his high calling, and has successfully reached the goal of his aspirations. It is too common that men in respectable professions forget in their selfish desires the re. spect due to themselves and others, and descend to vindictive untrue, and unnecessary abuse, that they may injure a competitor, with whom they are otherwise unable to cope. Such has never been the course of the gentleman whose name forms the caption of this notice, and unless we are very much deceived in the representations we have had of him, such never will be the case. His private character is not sullied by aught that could stain his purity, and his professional skill we regard as a boon...
