SMOKING SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 21 September 1856

SMOKING SONG. _4i>. —"SrABEUHQ AMD BRIGHT." Floating away likt the fountain's spray. Or the snow white plume ofa maiden ; Tl c smoke wreaths rise to the star-lit skies, With blissful fragrance laden. Then smoke away, till a golden ray Lights up the dawn of the morrow; For a cheerful cigar, like a shield will bar The blows of care and sorrow. The leaf burns bright, like tbe gems of light, That fla-h in the braids of beauty; It nerves each heart for the hero's part. On the battle plain of duty. In the thoughtful gloom of his darkened room, Sits the child of song and story ; But his heart is light, for his pipe beams bright, And his dreams are all of glory. By the biasing fire sits the gray-haired sire, And infant arms surround him ; And he smiles on alt in that quaint old hall, While the smoke-curls stoat around. In the forests grand of onr native land, When the savage conflict's ended. The " pipe of peace brought a sweet release From toil and terror blended. The dark-eyed ...

The Last of His Race. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 21 September 1856

The Last of His Race. J. F. SMITH, AUTHOR OF "THE SOLDIER Or rORTCNE," " MIMKIE OBEY," ETC. CHAPTER XXIX. Oh how this spring of love The uncertain glory of an April day; Which now shows all the beauty of the sun, And by and by a cloud takes all away. Shakspeare. The struggle which for some time had been carried on between love and the gratitude which our hero felt he owed to Mr. Barnard, had not been productive of ttnhappiness to himself alone. Marion had suffered with him, although from a far different cause. In her artless innocence of the arbitrary distinctions of the world, it never entered her imagination that Dick would be looked upon by all who knew his history, as a monster of ingratitude, should he attempt to win her love. She mistook his continual absence from home for indiH'erence, neglect, tin kiudness, —in fact, to any but the true cuuse, an imperious ■euse of honor, und mistrust of himself. " I wish I hud been a boy,*' she one day observed to Miss Atkin ; "girls are su...

Below we append a letter from a worthy man, who, a brief period since, seemed destined to M shuffle off this mortal coil;"' who looked forward to his dissolution with that pleasure which only those weighed down by the heavy hand of disease can.

TO THE PUBLIC! ON ACCOUNT OF THE WIDE AND DEVASTATING spread of outrageous quackery, Dr. J. C. YOUNG feels called upon to send a Circular throughout the country. Dr. YOUNG is the Pioneer Advertising Physician in California, and the only one now advertising, who has received a Collegiate education, which is requisite for the successful treatment of Disease. Because of his unparalleled success, there has sprung, from time to time, into existence, "unprlncipled imposters," without character or education, who, by boasting and false certificates, have managed to deceive the unwary sufferer into the belief that they were respectable and scientific men. In so doing, they have scattered, broadcast, their Nostrums among the honest and unsuspecting, to the destruction of Health, and, in some cases, of Life itself. Beware of them, as you would of the Upas tree, for it is as destructive. Have Confidence. Dr. YOUNG will guarantee a perfect and permanent cure in the following cases, or charge not...

THE VOICES OF THE NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

THE VOICES OF THE NIGHT. A LONG FELLOW RUNNING AFTER A SHORT YOUNG LADY Tell me not in mournful numbers, Opera is all a dream, Flccolomiui wakes its slumbers, She does more than merely seem. Bhe is rtal, she's in earnest, She has reached at once the height, If thou goest, thou returnest To those Voices of the Night. First enjoyment, and then sorrow. She with equal truth portrays, Does she act to-night - to-morrow, All are asking when she plays. Art is long and time is fleeting ; But of genius the soul— Ordinary talent lieating— Reaches at one stride the goal. In the operatic battle, In the Prima Donna's life, Quit the herd —the vocal cattle, lie a OrM in the strife. Trust no promise, howe'er pleasant, Not who may be, but who are ; IMccolomiui at present, Is the bright particular star. Great successes all remind us When attraction's at its prime, We must leave the crowd behind us, If we wish to be in time. We must struggle wilh each other, Tushiug wilh our might and main ; If we lose...

The star-genimcd Bag, where er unfurled. O'er frowning fort or water, world, Points all her sons, or near or far, For safety and protection there. These are her triumphs—this the fame That binds her one united name ; Where is the traitor hand to tear One line from out the record there? No! let her stand in all the power That marks her progress at this hour ; What wateis wash her farthest strand. What headlands mark her lengthened land. Whale er her breadth —where'er her bound, It Is to us all hallowed ground. And let her suppliant prayer still be. To him who guide, and guards the free : God bless the Old Thirteen, that won The heritage we call " our own ' — tied help the Thirty-One to save The priceless boon the Thirleen gave.

How Politicians are Made. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

How Politicians are Made. It is really ludicrous to think how prominent political leaders are manufactured. On a elo-e examination very few are found to lie men of genius, few arc men of talent—they do not possess original minds—they have no resources of education, no creative power—they are lay figures, clothed by the good nature of the public with ofiicial robes, which do not fit them and are very soon in tatters. Let us see how the thing is done." We begin, then, by obsetving that some young man has early abandoned an unprofitable Broployment, given up some mechanical pursuit, or having pnt his hand to the plow, has looked back. He wishes to get his living some other way. He enters the office of some pettifogger, perhaps, and takes small cases in the Justices' Court. Although admitted to practice, he finds that he is likely to " live without causes and die without effects." He then mingles with the primary meetings, gets placed upon a committee, and seeks to become a village Hamp...
