POPULAR SELECTIONS. WASHINGTON'S RESIDENCE IN NEW YORK. COMMENCEMENT OF THE CONSTITUIONAL GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 22 April 1847

POPULAR SELECTIONS. WASHINGTON'S RESIDENCE IN NEW YORK. COMMENCEMENT OF THE CONSTITUIONAL GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES. From the Custus Recollections and private Memoirs of the Life and character of Washington. On the 30th of April, 1789, the Constitutional government of the United States began, by the inauguration of George Washington as President of the United States, in the city of New York. In the then limited extent and improvement of the city, there was some difficulty in selecting a mansion for the residence of the Chief Magistrate and a household, suitable to his rank and station.— Osgood's house, a mansion of very moderate extent, was at length fixed upon, situated in Cherry street. There the President became domiciled.— His domestic family consisted of Mrs. Washington, the two adopted children, Mr. Lear as principal secretary, Colonel Humphreys, with Messrs. Lewis and Nelson, secretaries, and Major Wm. Jackson, aid-de camp. Persons visiting the house in Cherry street at...

HOW IT STRIKES A STRANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 22 April 1847

HOW IT STRIKES A STRANGER. BY JANE TAYLOR. In a remote period of antiquity, when the supernatural and the marvellous obtained a readier credence than now, it was fabled that a slrnnger, of extraordinary appearance, was observed pacing the streets of one of the magnificent cities of the East, remarking with an eye of intelligent curiosity every surrounding object. Several individuals gathered around him, questioned him concerning his country nnd his business; hut they presently perceived thai he was unacquainted with iheir langunge, and he soon discovered himself to be equally ignorant of the most common usages of society. At ihe same time, the dignity and intelligence of Ins air and demeanor forbade the idea nf his being either n barbarian or a lunatic. When, nt length, he understood by their .signs lhat they wished lo be informed whence fie en me, he pointed with great significance to the sky; upon which ibe crowtl, concluding him to be one of iheir deities, were proceeding to pay ...

JOHN WADLEIGH'S TRIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 22 April 1847

JOHN WADLEIGH'S TRIAL. Under this caption a droll story of the old Puritan times in New England, by Seba Smith, is going the rounds of the press, from Calais to Matamoras. It was written originally for the N. Y. Illustrated Magazine, and is thus condensed by an exchange paper. John Wadleigh, the hero, was addicted to sleeping in meeting, an offence in those days which brought the unlucky sleeper under the notice of the justice. Deacon Winslow, who had been overreached by Wadleigh in the sale of n cow, watched him very sharply for a number of Sundays, but wns unable to*get any pn-.iiivo evidence as to the mailer. Though John always appeared to be nsleep nt the close of tbe sermon, vet when the congregation rose up lo prayers, he ntwnvs managed to be up with litem, though with n flushed . face nnd guilty countenance. The Peacnn sug- ; gested to Parson Moody, that on the next Sabbnih he should, at tbe close of the sermon, sit down quietly for three or four minutes, as if fatigued, ami ...

Thk Dattle Fifi-d of Ruena Vista. One of the Mississippi volunteers in a letter published in the N. O.

At one lime during the fight, wo returned over the ground on which was made our first charge.— We there saw the mangled bodies of our fallen comrades, und although animated by the excitement of the fierce contest which was just then renewed, yet I think there was not a heart among us which ! did not for a moment cease (o beat on beholding ' ; that horrible scene.

AMERICAN ANTIQUITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 22 April 1847

AMERICAN ANTIQUITIES. Tbe antiquities of any country merit the attention of every one interested in her past history and future welfare. Not only doei tbe study of them repay the inquirer with a rich and abundant reward, hut it confers on his own and all succeeding ages an important and lasting obligation. To study and observe the pust, is a duty which thu scholar owes to history, to literature, to philosophy. For from w hut other source do we derive all those lessons of wisdom und morality which guide und direct the conduct of individuals and nations, unless it be from the past ? And what is this past, this great authoritative dictator in human affairs, hut J the record of the history and achievements of those I who have lived before us ! The burren and scanty ' records of the early history of nations which now exist, demonstrate that learned men have not sufficiently appreciated tho importance of collecting, preserving and handing down their antiquities. How many philosophers, poe...

There had been n audden fall in the prices of grain oft-very description, in England, Ireland and Eiance.
