The Economy of the English. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

The Economy of the English. Solvency is in the ideas and mechanism of an Englishman. The Crystal Palace is not considered honest until it pays—no matter how much convenience, beauty, or eclat, it must be self-supporting. They are contented with slower steamers, as long as tney know that swifter boats lose money. They proceed logically by the double method of labor and thrift. Every household exhibits an exact economy, and nothing of that uncalculated headlong expenditure which families use in America. If they cannot pay they do not buy; for they have no presumption of better fortunes next year, as our people have, and they say without shame I cannot afford it. Gentlemen do not hesitate to ride in the second-class cars, or in the second-cabin. An economist, or a man who can proportion his meant; and his ambition, or bring the year round with expenditure width expresses his character, without embarrassing one day of his future, is already a master of life, aud a freeman. Lord Burleigh...

The Reason for Refusal. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

The Reason for Refusal. Mr. Popps paid his two hifhdred and sixtyseventh visit to Miss Clarissa Cooler the other evening. He found her in a rocker, alone in the parlor ; stole his arm around her alabaster neck, and sipped the nectar of her cherry lips—a proceeding there was not the least harm in. considering that they had come to an agreement, and were generally reported to be on the high road to matrimony. The lady took it all (piietly—even indifferently, to judge from the lassitude of her attitude in the rocker, her lazy use of her fan. and her exclamation of something between a heigh-ho and a Valium. Commonplaces were disposed of. Then followed a silence, broken onlj by Mr. Popps slapping at the inosipiitoes, and Miss Clarissa fanning herself unceasingly. At length Poppl proposed a promenade, and loR cream. Clarissa declined both, adding : •• I wish to stay at home, for I have something particular to tell yon." "Indeed!'' said Popps: "what is it. dear." " You expect our wedding t...

The Religion of England. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

The Religion of England. The doctrine of the Old Testament is the religion of England. The first leaf of the New Testament it does not open. It believes in a Providence which does not treat with levity a pound sterling. They are neither transcendentalistfl nor Christians. They put up no Socratic prayer, Brack less any saintly prayer for the Queen s mind ; ask neither for light, nor right but say bluntly, • grant her in health and wealth long to live." And one traces this Jewish prayer in all Knglish private history, from the prayers of King Richard, iv Kichard of Devies' Chronicle, to those in the diaries of Sir Samuel IJomilly, and of Haydnn the painter. " Abroad <vith my wife," writes Pepys piously, " the first time that ever I rode in my "own coach, which do make my heart rejoice and" praise God, and pray him to bless it to me, and continue it." The biil tor the naturalization of the .Tews (in 1T.")3) was r.sisted by petitions from all parts of the kingdom, and by peti...

Cool as a Cucumber. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

Cool as a Cucumber. Here is a capital story from a LeaaWa paper; " 1 bad paid my cabman, who had brought me to tho Paddington station, his precisely correct fare it being a weakness of mine, contrary to the general custom, to give cabmen, in common with other honest folks, their dues, and not to present them with that sixpence in addition which is the silver medal awarded to ferocity by fear. I had paid him, 1 say. and he had held the money, as a matter of course, in the palm of his horny hand, and demanded 'What that was for?'o3 though there were no such thing as a table of cab fares iv the world j and I had replied—there being plenty of time before the train started—by entering into the supply aud demand question in general, and the charge and convenience of street locomotion iv particular, just as Mr. McCulloch might have done, which 1 find to be a nice little annoying plan with cabmen, and better than the very strongest language, which indeed has no more effect on them than port...

A Nice Bit of Parisian Scandal. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

A Nice Bit of Parisian Scandal. A Paris correspondent of one of the New York dailies furui-hes the following choice bit of scandal in reference to the Princess Mathilde : Great efforts are being made at Home to bring about a dissolution of the marriage between the Princess Mathilde and the Prince Deniidoff. her bnahaad. The character which the Princess bears in Paris is that of a generous subscriber to all works of charity, but this does not delend her highness from imputations ofa character injurious to her dignfty as a matron aud a princess. At the same time in a capital where no one's reputation is considered unassailable, it i.s not surprising that even a lady in her exalted position, living apart from her husband, should lie considered open to assault. The Count Nieuberkercke has been tulkcd of as the one whom, were her marriage bond dissolved, the Princess would most delight to honor. So far, perhaps, her highness has nothing to complain of. When she gave up her love for her h...

New Anecdote of Washington. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

New Anecdote of Washington. We find in " Collins' Historical Sketches of Kentucky," the following little-known anecdote of Washington. * Col. Devall Payne was the son of William Payne, whose parental ancestor accompanied Lord Fairfax from England when he came over to colonize his grant in Virginia. At the time den. Washington was stationed in Alexandria as a colonel of a British regiment, before the war of the Revolution, an altercation took place in the courthouse yard between him and William Payne, in which Payne knocked Washington down. Creat excitement prevailed, as Payne was known to be firm, and stood high, and Washington was beloved by all. A night's recollection, however, satisfied Washington, that he was the aggressor, and in the wrong, and in the morning, like a true and magnanimous hero, he sought an interview with Payne, which resulted in au apology from Washington, and a warm aud lasting friendship between the two, founded on mutual esteem. During the revolutionary war,...

3 Banker in Trouble A rich foreigner, named Sutherland, naturalized in Russia, was banker to the Court, and fat high favor with the Kmpress. He was roused one morning by the information that his house was surrounded by guards, and that Reliew. the Minister of Police, desired to speak with him. This personage entering without further ceremony, at once announced his errand. " Mr. Sutherland." said he, " I am charged by my gracious Sovereign with the execution of a sentence, the severity of which both astonishes and grieves me ; and I am ignorant as to how you can have so far excited the resentment of Her Majesty." '' I am as much in the dark as yourself." replied the banker, " but what are your orders?" " I have not the courage to tell you." '• Have I lost the confidence of the Empress?" •' If that were all, you would not see me troubled —confidence may return —position may be restored."

Your act was that of a blackguard and scoundrel, sir. Sniis. I must beg of you to explain yourself, sir. Bullyingame. Sir, what I have just said is in my Representative rapacity. As a member of Congress. I can not do less than characterize it as I did ; but as a private citizen you will allow me to assure you of my high respect and admiration of your qualities as a gentleman and man of honor. Bruis.

Etymology of the Word Cash. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

Etymology of the Word Cash. There can be little doubt that the word cash is derived from the Italian Cassa, the chest in which Italian merchants keep their money, as do at the present time the Spaniards in their caja, the Poruguese in their cam. and the French in their miaa The application of the word cash to money is altogether English, it not having a corresponding term in any other European language. Cash having been so inconsiderately adopted instead ol cassa, (chest) entries in the cash book (it should be chest book) are made in counting houses in this uunieaning way, ' Cash Dr." and " Cash Cr. "— whereas the chest, and not the money, is Dr. for what is taken out. Great mischief has too often arisen as is well known in the bankruptcy courts, trom the m'suse of the word cash, in which large dehciences often appear, and which would not be the euse, ii word chest were used as it ought to be. In.-, of the cash account in the ledger, it should be the chest account. &s»3f...

The People's Ticket [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

The People's Ticket The political contest has assumed a quadrangular shape, and the artillery of the three regularly organized parties is brought to bear with great unanimity on the supporters of the People's Ticket. It is not surprising that this should be the case. The political wire-workers who have so long controlled our public officers, are naturally averse to the institution of a system which deprives them of their opportunity for securing place and pelf for themselves and friends. For them there could be no greater misfortune than that the people should take the management of their affairs into their own hands. They have been so long in the undisturbed possession of the monopoly which the present movement threatens to wrest from them, that they consider it a species of property, and loudly protest against being deprived of it. ■ The coming election affords an opportunity for securing a good city government, and instilling a healthy element into the administration of our State...

The Advertising Mania. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

The Advertising Mania. With some individuals advertising is regarded as a science. With the proprietor of the New York Ledger it appears to be almost a mania. He recently published five columns in tbe N. Y. Tribune and an equal number in the Herald, filled with such announcements as the following : JfIANNY FERN WRITES FOR TUB NEW YORK LEDGER. This was repeated in separate advertisements till the column was filled, when the next was commenced with the name of another author and repeated to the end, nnd so on through the whole five columns. In the Times he pursued a different policy. He secured one page of that paper, and at the top and bottom of the marginal columns inserted one of his advertisements, leaving the rest blank. The next column on either side was then left entirely blank. The centre columns were headed with the following, which was repeated at their foot, and tbe rest, with the exceptiou of an advertisement in the middle, left blank : APOLOGETIC.— Much fault has been fou...

Singular Auricular Phenomenon. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

Singular Auricular Phenomenon. A gentleman who was standing near the individual through whose lint a ball was dispatched by some unknown individual one evening last week, has called on us nnd assures us that although the city papers speak of him as a deaf mute, he is positive that an observation was made by him immediately after the shot. It is surprising that this fact has not been made known in any of the acc•uints that have appeared of the affair, but we have the utmost confidence in the correctness of our information. It would indeed be singular if. by the moans intended to deprive him of life, this man hud licen restored to its full enjoyment in the recovery of two lost senses.

What the Citizen is Worth to the State. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

What the Citizen is Worth to the State. If every new community were able at once to adopt those principles in the regulation of its public affairs, which the experience of older States have shown to be profitable in their operation, it would inevitably be not only the most desirable place of residence, on account of its freedom from the errors which have become time-honored and prevalent in the latter, but would enjoy that prosperity in its outset which is only and not invariably the result of long years of protracted and expensive experiment in the countries which have preceded it in the world's history. But it seems as though the law which denies to the child the experience of its parent had its parallel in the life of nations, and that to a certain extent only communities are permitted to take advantage of the lessons learned by their ciders. A society has its period of infancy and adolescence as invariably as those periods are passed through by its members. It has its years of d...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

NEWS OF THE WEEK. The Placer Herald says:—" Philip Lynch, Esq., sends us a specimen of cotton raised by him in his flower garden this year. It is beautiful and tine. He informs us that the seeds were accidentally received by him in some Italian grass seed, which he received from the Patent office at Washington. Our friend Philip, we think can chalk himself down the tirst " cotton grower" in Placer County. From this little beginning who knows what may come forth—perhaps extended lields of cotton, with many a factory on our mountain streams, manufacturing the white cloth for the commerce of the mighty Pacific ocean. Who knows?" The Table Rock SenJincl, Jacksonville, says that a feasible route for a wagon road has been discovered between Illinois Valley and Crescent City. The distance is fifteen miles nearer than the pack-trail mute. The cost of construction, it is said, will not exceed $30,000; and the interest manifested by parties most concerned, warrants the conclusion that freight...
