POPULAR SELECTIONS. THE PRIVATE CLAIMANT. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 29 April 1847

POPULAR SELECTIONS. THE PRIVATE CLAIMANT. AEGE. Oh! grief Hath changed me you saw me last; And careful hours, with Time's deformed hand, Have written strange defeatures in my face; But tell me yet, Dost thou not know my voice? Comedy of Errors. A strange caravansary is a Washington boarding house at times! The very atmosphere of the place is peculiar. As you push open the door, after vainly essaying the bell, which, like the smooth face of the hypocrite, has no connection with the interior, you become sensible of an odor strongly suggestive of the mysterious rites of the kitchen, and the nightly horrors of three in a bed. As you pass through the darkened hall, you catch a glimpse of a long, narrow table, covered with indescribably dirty linen, and that übiquitous personage, "the waiter," very diligently engaged at the sideboard in wiping the plates and checking the perspiration, with a napkin whose saponaceous era has been, it is evident, exactly coeval with that of the tablecloth. ...

CLOSE OF THE VOLUME. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 29 April 1847

CLOSE OF THE VOLUME. Tb« first volutin, of tbe Chronicle closes wilh the present number. The enterprise of establishing a publication of ibis kind in Cambridge was deemed bf many to bu visionary and hazardous in tbe extreme. It was so to a certain extent. The obstacles to be overcome were such as could nut bo avoided, uml success depended entirely upnii tbe ability of the publisher to make it of permanent local interest. Tb" proximity of the city uf Hoston, with its scores of daily and weekly issues, brought to j the doors of our citizens; tbe facility of intercourse .with that city; and ibe fact that tba daily husiness 'of almost ih« wbolu body of our citizens was loj cated there, seemed lo preclude tbo possibility of obtaining nu ample suppott. Apart from ibis, uud other incidental cii..um*lunf.es peculiar to all entetprioM of tho sort, the Chronicle has labored, ! under a nol her disadvantage.

Facilities for Travelling. The time is fust approaching when many of Ihe inhabitants of our cities will commence their travelling excursions. From present indications, the facilities for travelling will be greater this suuson than ever. There wilt bu so much competition with the proprietors of the various routes, ihut the fares will be very low, so that those who have a few dollars to spare, can tuku an excursion of a few hundred mites wiibm.it costing them much more than their bourd would at home. The railroad cars and ihe steamboats are constructed so us to afford the utmost comfort to iheir transient occuputits. The proprietors have, not only endeavored lo make their boats coinfoitable, but they have fitted them up witli great splendor.
