THE CHINESE IN CALITORNIA.---NO. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 December 1854

THE CHINESE IN CALITORNIA.---NO. 1. 11l the accompanying picture the California reader will feadilv recognize a scene of common occurrence in our cities. Gathered around the table of the gambler are the Asiatics who have cursed ou country by their coming, in every variety of feature granted by Nature to the Mongolian nice, and the few modifications of costume permitted by their habits. Even the debasing character of the pastime they are engaged in can add no expression to their faces more degraded than that with which they are endowed by Nature. The prominent jaw, vulgar nose, meaningless eye, w hose brow und lash add all the ugliness unsupplied by other features, stamp on their fronts their inferiority to the race among whom their avarice and tho cupidity of capitalists has thrown them. Persons at the East, with whom the Chinese are still curiosities, will scarcely be able to realize that the accompanying view is not only a nightly scene in our midst, but is one of many, and that t...

The Durlist's Doom. Moses Stevens came to Mississippi wheu but a youth of eighteen.

Memories of Mexico; [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 December 1854

Memories of Mexico; OR, LEAVES FROM THE JOURNAL OF A FORTY-NINER. Number 10. The sun was just rising as we left the streets of Jalapa and commenced the ascent of the mountain that overhangs the town. It was indeed a beautiful morning. The air was just cool enough to be bracing, and its invigorating influence soon removed the irritability occasioned by a bad night's rest As we rode up the mountain the scene below spread itself out with an aspect so attractive thnt the necks of the majority of tbe party were half dislocated by attempting to gain an uninterrupted view over their shoulders. Immediately below us lay the town with its grassy lawns, its fragrant orange trees, and the aloe and plantain glistening in the diamond dew of the morning. Higher and higher we go, till the minor objects in the city are no longer visible, and the broad plateau stretching away toward Vera Cruz, replaces Jalapa in our attention, with its parti-colored surface dotted here and there with ranches and coll...

THE CHINESE IN CALIFORNIA.---No. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 December 1854

THE CHINESE IN CALIFORNIA.---No. 2. No better evidence could be given of the depraving influence of Oriental customs on woman than the condition of Chinese females in California. They are vicious and degraded without exception. We believe there is no instance on record of a single one of their number devoting herself to any of the many unobjectionable pursuits tbat arc ojhmi to labor iv this country. They have come here with their course laid out, and they adhere to it with a pertinacity as invariable as it is distrusting. So niueh of a nuisauce have these women become, that mi many mining towns their presence is not tolerated, while in others they are subjected to all kinds of insult, and their dwellings are frequently destroyed ordrenched with water from fire engines. An ineffectual attempt was made some time sine*' to abate the evil. Terhaps the evil can only be permanently remedied by the promotion of a higher standard of morality. One thing, however, can be done, and if it bad ...

THE CHINESE IN CALIFORNIA.---No. 3. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 December 1854

THE CHINESE IN CALIFORNIA.---No. 3. Chinese washing is the cheapest in the city. We use the term "cheapest" in a limited sense—meaning that the nominal price charged is less than by any others engaged in the same business. But when we consider the departed buttons, elongated button-holes, the general dingy and creasy effect on the bosoms of shirts, and the mysterious substitution of cotton for linen fabrics, it is questionable whether the saving can be expressed in figures. It being derogatory to a Chinaman s diguity to carry burthens in any other than an oriental manner, (suspended on the ends of a stick resting on his shoulders, under which he executes an clegnnt and invariable trot,) the clothes, soiled or clean, are arranged in bundles suited to that mode of transportation, ag may be seen in the engraving. 'The mode of ironing is unique, as will be observed. The polish produced cannot be said to exceed that of a mirror, nor does starch abound to any great extent, for we are forc...

Rev. T. P. Hunt. We have heard many good things that have emanated from the keen wit of this reverend gentleman, but the last one threw us down entirely. A man recently passing Mr. Hunt, was accompanied by a small dog, und the little scoundrel took a sudden fancy to stick his teeth iv the old gentleman's legs. This physical manifestation not proving satisfactory to the clerical victim, be determined to victimize the dog in turn, and drawing the big end of

THE POET IN THE EAST. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 December 1854

THE POET IN THE EAST. The Poet came to the Land of the East, When Spring was in the air ; The Karth was dressed for a wedding-rtast. So young he seemed, and fair; And the Poet knew the Land or the East— His soul was native there. All thing* to him were the visible forms Of early and precious dreams— Familiar visious that mocked his quest Beside the Western streams. Or gleamed in the gold of the clouds, unrolled In the sunset's dying beams. lie looked above in the cloudiest calm, And Sun sat on his throne ; The breath or gardens, deep in balm, Was all about him blown. And a brother to him was the princely Palm, For lie cannot live alone. His feet went forth on their myrtled hills, and the flowers their welcome shed ; The meads of milk-white asphodel They knew the Poet's tread ; And fur and wide, in a scarlet tide. The poppy's bonfire spread. And halt in shade and hair in sun, The Rose sat in her bower. With a passionate thrill in her crimson heartShe had waited for the hour I And lik...

SUSIE SUNSHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 December 1854

SUSIE SUNSHINE. Little Susie Sunshine Trippeth like a fay, O'er the velvet green-sward. O'er the clover gay, Merrily a tune she sitigeth, (As the cheery school-bell ringeth) Of the merry May. On her arm a satchel, In her hand a book. Now she sings her carol. Now with sober look Bends demurely o'er its pages. As if love of ancient sages Her young mind partook. One by one the letters, Conning of each word, With an accent tuneful t Like a forest bird ; O'er and o'er again repeating Her bard lesson, and, a greeting On the May conferred. Mingling work with pleasure. Task with joyous song, Darling little Susie, Here in nothing wrong I Though your elders talk of duty, And eschew the Joy and beauty Whioh to lift belong.
