Petticoat Suspenders. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

Petticoat Suspenders. Strings and pins may be reckoned among the plagues of a woman's life ; and I am quite sure of enlisting the sympathy of my fair friends when I tell them how to dispense with those troublesome and in some cases painful appliances. Beyond pricking, scratching, slipping, and tearing the" fabric. 1 have nothing to say against pins, especially as they have of late years been superseded by buttons and hooks and eyes, but the strings remain as they were from the beginning, and are worn at the present time with as little regard to the true end and purpose of dressing as they were a thousand years ago. All who are acquainted with the structure of the human body know that one absolute condition of its perfection is that all the great orgaus of lile should have perfect freedom of action. The internal viscera are permeated by innumerable ducts and vessels which are charged with the various fluids of the body. The whole of them are from their very nature soft ami yielding, ...

Value of Railway Tunnels. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

Value of Railway Tunnels. We cannot help repeating a narrative, which we heard on one occasion. told with infinite gravity by a clergyman, whose name we at once inquired ai>ont. ami of whom we shall only say that he is one of the l>est and worthiest of the sons of the Kirk, and knows when to be serious as well as to jest. •• Don't tell me." said he to a simple looking Highland brother who had apparently made his tirst trial of railway traveling in coming up to the Assembly, •• don't tell me that tuun. is on railways are an unmitigated evil ; they serve high moral and aesthetic;.! purposes. Only the other day I got into a railway carriage, and 1 had hardly taken my seat when the train started. On looking up I saw sitting opposite me two of the most rabid Dissenters in Scotland. I felt at once that there could be no pleasure for me in that journey, and with gloomy heart and countenance I leaned back in my corner. lint all at once we plunged into a long tunnel, bl...

Singular Presentiment. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

Singular Presentiment. Mi. J. 0. Rogers, a young man engaged on this paper as a compositor, came to the office yesterday morning and told the hands that he was unfit for work. Pulag asked what ailed him ? he said that he dreamed during the night that lie saw his mother in her coffin, and the dream was so vivid and had affected him so deeply that he could not work. He remained about the office all day, much depressed in spirits, until about 4 o'clock" in the afternoon, when he received a telegraphic dispatch announcing that his mother was dead. Tbe ladyhad enjoyed perfect health to within a few hours ol her death, and no communication whatever had been received warning him of her illness. We have exam toed into these facts carefully, and can vouch tor them. The communication of the circumstances of the terrible dream was made seven or eight hours before the telograimic dispatch was sent. Publicity would uot be given to this occurrence if there existed a shadow-of doubt us to tl.e ent...

Doctor Scott's Letter on the Vigilance Committee. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

Doctor Scott's Letter on the Vigilance Committee. "When nn accused person applies for a change of venue, the fact that the law grants him that privilege on certain grounds, docs not prevent the public from regarding such a course as pretty st rong evidence of his gnilt. Thoy naturally arrive at the conclusion that the locality in which he is accused of misdoing is the very one in which an innocent man would prefer to undergo the Investigation called for by the law. There are few general rules that are less liable to exceptions than this one. Thus, the very fact of the reverend gentleman, who has seen fit to address an editor in this citycm Philadelphia, having taken such a course is a strong point against the correctness of his positions; the more so that in this instance it is not tie trial that is transferred to that remote region, but simply his defence. He did not invite the editor of tho Pacific to discuss with him through the columns of a Pennsylvania newspaper the points at i...

A Juvenile Amusement for Adults. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

A Juvenile Amusement for Adults. That adults may learn much from children is a saying as true as it is trite. Too little play will as inevitably make Mr. Itichard a stupid mnn.nl it is certain to convert Dick into a dull boy. The great obstacle to the taking proper recreation and exercise with grown people in our cities, of both sexes, is the trouble of doing so, the nccessitv of preparation which changes amusement into drudgery. Thus it is that persons engaged in sedentary occupations avoid attendance at gymnasia—they do not afford an opportunity for relaxation at once convenient und attractive. We envy the light hearts and good digestion or children, ami attribute it to youth, and when that period has passed away, tacitly arrive at the conclusion that it is an ordinance or nature that our happiness ir not our health has accompanied it, never to return in fullness U nd strength. And yet were we to uccustoin ourselves to regular indulgence in the simple pleasures of childhood, it wo...

The Stats Agricultural Fair. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

The Stats Agricultural Fair. On Tuesday next, Oct. 7th, the State Agricultural Pair will commence at San Jose. The object of this celebration is one of general utility and we regard its annual recurrence as an event calculated to exert a widely benefiicial influence. There is no body of men whose interests cannot be subserved by association, and experience has shown that agricultural advancement is materially, promoted by the societies giving these annual displays, as well as by the exhibhrons themselves. In this State agriculture is in its infancy, and the fair of an agricultural society cannot be expected to rival in any of its details those of similar occasions in older communities. We have no doubt, however, that tht demonstration in question will be highly creditable to its getters-np and to the class for whose especial benefit it is instrtrrterl. To secure a large attendance a* the fete of Tuesday, no efforts on the part of the press are necessary ; bnt if there be any who hav...

The Report of the Grand Jury. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

The Report of the Grand Jury. The report of the latest (irand Jury is a curiosity, andedeeerves to be filed in the archives of the Circumlocution Office, so perfect a specimen is it of the earnestness and vigor of its authors in striving—How Not to Do It.

The Dove Battery. We arc !>eginiiing to In> impatient at the delay of the ]>ro]irie;..r ot this aerial ■avigetof in souring into ethereal ipaCS ami solving the problem of centuries. We even entertain doubts whether those eminently reliable authorities, the newspaper reporters, have not allowed their enthusiasm tO overtop their reason in the encouraging accounts they have based upon their examination of the apparatus, and are almost persuaded that for once they arc mistaken. Already our syni|uithics are enlisted for the persons who have paid their " twenty-five cents admission to see the wonderful machine previous to its aerial flight In theory the apparatus is stateif to la']NTfN't, but suencbow or other the greatest perfection in theory is frequently the most complete failure in practice.

The "Calliope." [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

The "Calliope." The New York papers publish accounts of the ]HTn>riiianees ofa musical attachment to the apparatus of a boat on the Hudson, by which, in lieu of the shrill, unmusical whistle, in which notM f the approach of a locomotive or steamboat has hitln rto DOM given, its mining M annoumvd in the playing of popular air- by the -ame medium. The feature is certainly an improvement, even if the music thus produced lie not of a very high standard of excellence in its execution. Now why .can we not have this attachment on some of our steamers? A band of music is an indis|>ensablo requisite lor au excursion, and reasoning from this fact, a boat with the Calliope attachment would naturally attract the greutcr iiuiiilht of passengers.

The Release of Cohen. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

The Release of Cohen. The popular excitement living over, the " state of insurrection" cntletl. it has Ihx'ii considered bsJb fur this man to appear again in our streets, ami he has accordingly Urn released by that admirable tribunal, the Supreme Court. What further proceedings will be instituted against hitn it is impossible to say, but the probability is that he will escape any puiifshmcut for his criminality. Alas for the creditors of Adams & Co.! The first receiver swindled them with impunity, and his successor, in the person of 11. M. Naglec, does not appear at all reluctant to follow that example. The time will certainly come, if our Courts do not do their duty, when a Vigilance Committee must be formed to try and punish this class of offenders without regard to their wealth, influence or position. And if matters progress as they have done in the last mouth, that period is not far distant. The Concert of Sicnora Caruato.—On Friday evening next this lady will give a...

CITY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

CITY NEWS. The Poison Case.—A few days since a person named Dangler appeared at the Police Oflice, and cimplained of a neighbor by the name of Mrs. Cordals, charging her with poisoning his water cask by throwing therein about a pound of arsenic. He stated that a dog had died by driuking the water. It seems that there is considerable feeling of not a very agreeable character existing between the parties, and it was supposed that the prosecution was a malicious one. Upon further examination it has been ascertained that the complainant bad poisoned his own water cask for the purpose of charging the same upon hia neighbor. There is proof whteh shows that he has recently purchased a pound of arsenic. He has since been arrested, together with big wife, and they are held to answer in bonds of $2,500. A Dangerous Building —Mr. John Bailey was brought before the Police Court yesterday, upon a charge of erecting a dangerous and unsafe brick building in Ohio street. The prosecution was brought...

HEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

HEWS OF THE WEEK. The new from the East by the John L. Stephens is not important. The Kansas troubles appear to be increasing. The State of Vermont has gone for the republicans by over 20,000 majority. It is now pretty generally conceded that Fillmore will not carry a single State. The friends of Buchanan and Fremont seem to be about equally sanguine in relation to the prospects of then candidates. C. K. Garrison had been arrested in New York, at the instance of Mr. Vanderbilt, on a charge orembealing the Kinds of the Nicaragua Transit Co. Congress had passed tbe army appropriation bill and adjourned. The doings of some of the banished victims of the Vigilance Committee, after their arrival in New York, bad produced a strong feeling ot the East, in favor of tbe Commitee.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. Sceptic—-The Mahomincdans go to Mecca because, in the temple of that city is the famous square stone Caaba, tho object of the adoration of the entire Mahommedan world. " According to the tradition of the Arabs," says a writer on this subject, "it is the first spot on earth which was consecrated to the worship of the D. ity, having been presented by the angel Gabriel to the patriarch Abraham on the occasion of the building of the temple. As is well known. Mahommed enjoined all his followers to visit the shrine of Mecca once in their life; and to preserve continually on their minds a sense of their obligation to perform thia duty, he directed that in all the multiplied acts of devotion Which his religion prescribes, true believers should always turn their faces towards this holy place, called Kebla. It may be added, that the eastern authors frequently designate the temple in which the square stone is concealed, witn all iv appendages, as Caaba." QcinxvNC.-" What...
