Youth and Age. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 10 November 1860
Youth and Age. I often think each tottering form That limps along in life's decline, Once bore a heart as young, as warm, As full of idle thoughts as mine! And each has had its dreams of joy, His own unequaled pure romance ; Commencing when the blushing boy First thrills at lovely woman's glance. And each could tell his talc of youth. Would think its scene of love evince 'More passions, more unearthly truth, Than any tale before or since. Yes! they could tell of tender lays At midnight penned in classic shades, Of days more bright than modern days, Of maids more fair than modern maids. Of Whispers in a willing ear, Or kisses on a blushing cheek, Each kiss, each whisper, far too dear Our modern lips to speak, Of passions too untimely crossed ; Of passions slighted or betrayed— Of kindred spirits early lost, And buds that blossom but to fade. Of beaming eyes and tresses gay, Elastic form and noble brow, And' forms that have all passed away, And left them what we see them now ; And is ...
Sheep and Wool—Opinions of Wool Growers. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 10 November 1860
Sheep and Wool—Opinions of Wool Growers. Sorire' time ago, the editor of the Red Bluff Independent addressed a letter to Mr. Hull, of Vermont, an extensive wool-grower, and one of the oldest breeders of blooded aheep in the United States, for the purpose of petting such information in regard to aheep and wool-growing as it was known he would be able to furnish for the benefit of all who may be interested. The State of Vermont has long been celebrated for her pure blooded sheep and wool growing. In fact, men from every section of the Union, engaged in wool-growing, have gone to Vermont for pore bloods, for the improving of their Docks. In the first place, there have been but two or three importations to the United States of what Mr. Hull considers valuable blooded sheep—considering constitution, quality of wool, weight of fleece, relative value to the wool-grower ond manufacturer. These are the Spanish Merinos, imported some fifty or sixty years ago by the following named gentlemen ;...

To the Public. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 10 November 1860
To the Public. In the last issue of the Sun I find " A Card " signed by Wm. Gouverneur Morris, in which is the following language : "I have endeavored to obtain satisfaction from Mr. Shannon for his personal abuse of me in his paper, but have been unable to do so."— After which followes copies of a portion of the correspondence. The second letter, purporting to be written by me, I never wrote, (for the reason that I could not write,) but authorized S. W. Beckham to write one of similar purport, of which he has failed to furnish me a copy. On the 15th of September last, I received the note of Mr. Morris, by the hands of two men, who immediately left, without stating the object of their visit or the purport of the note of which they were the bearers, thus affording me no opportunity to give them a written answer or to refer them to my friend. Regarding this conduct on the part of these messengers as a deliberate insult, I sallied out in quest of them to resent it, and finding one of t...
