CHIMES FOR THE TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 12 October 1856

CHIMES FOR THE TIMES. WILLIAM LYLE. Be not jealous over-much, But hope and time will make you better; There is a faith care cannot touch, Which leaves the soul without a fetter. Oh, it is but a sorry creed To look for nothing but deceiving— To meet a kindness in your need. With a smile of misbelieving 1 The tide of ill is not so strong ; Man loves not always wrath and wrong. It cannot be that every heart Is steeled so much against ite neighbor; Let each with reason play his part. And fruit will spring from out the labor; Progressing still life's journey through. Be just and kind towards your fellow. Remembering whate'er you do, That duty spreads the smoothest pillow; And ne'er the hand of friendship spuru. But trust, and man will trust in turn. Some men tbere be who deem it good In trade to overreach a brother; An.l some who would not, though they could, Upraise a hand to help another ; They deem not, though convulsions wide Msy show the earth by danger shaken, That still of hearts ...

Franklin. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 12 October 1856

Franklin. It is seven o'clock P. M. This is Thursday the _ th. I have kept my appointment. Has he kept his? The table is placed as he directed at our last meeting. The drawer is provided as he desired with the plain note paper, having its pages numbered and the pen he was best pleased with. Frank, take your seat here by my side—not so close to the table—thus, with some five feet distance between it and us. You observe that crack running across its top ; it is caused merely by the shrinking of the boards. You see the table is of the cheapest kind. It is old. It cost me but a dollar and a half. You see that its drawer is loose and contains nothing but these twenty half sheets of note pajier and this fountain pen. which in its handle cantains ink to supply it. You observe that the pen and handle is eight inches iv length. From the bottom of the drawer to the top of the table is but four. Examine for yourself. » * * * *.

Pilferings from Plu-ri-bus-tab. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 12 October 1856

Pilferings from Plu-ri-bus-tab. [oONTINCKD.] On arriving nt his home, Plu-ri-bus-tah made a variety of ineffectual endeavors to quietly awaken his spouse, the gentle Liberty, failing in which he became irritated and tipped up the bedstead in so rapid and precipitous a manner that the fair lady was thrown out on the floor. The poet describes the consequences in the following lines : With a bound, like Gabriel Ravel, when he jumps through some big mountain. Liberty sprang from the carpet, Sprang to arm 3 and caught the broomstick, Ran and caught a hickory broomstick, Which she flourished o'er her husband. Vengeance in her eye was flashing, As she stood before her husband, With the hickory broom uplifted ; And this amiable couple, Standing there within their bedroom, Formed a splendid living picture, Formed a grand tableau nocturnal. But the lady did not strike him, For he was so ■ very humble," And his air so supplicating, She, at once, laid down her weapon, She. the first " strong-mi...

Diring and Death. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 12 October 1856

Diring and Death. A WALLACHIAN TRAGEDY. Bucharest, the gayest city of Wallachia. is a place where morality goes sli]>-sbod, and the (Thirl of dissipation conceals, from the careless observer, much of what is gloomy aud dreadful. Profligacy often leads to terrible social and domestic casualties, as is evinced in the following tragical narration, the scene of winch was tbe city we have mentioned : " Do you see that lady talking with such vivacity to those three gentlemen under the tree ?" asked a very agreeable acquaintance, as we were strolling through tbe gardens of Bucharest, toward sunset smoking a cigar, and listening to a divine melody of Strauss, played gloriously well by an Austrian band—" Would you like to hear a romance in real life ? Would you like to know what a little devil she is ? Come aud sit down in the shade, order a couple of ices, and 1 will tell you all about her. Look at her now," continued "our friend, one of those men whom one meets so often iv forei...

The Reform Ticket [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 12 October 1856

The Reform Ticket The Republican Connty Convention have very sensibly adopted the ticket put in nomination by the Committee appointed at a mass meeting in this city, some time since, and known as the People's ticket. We are pleased to be able to announce this fact, as it secures the triumph of the friends of reform in the coming election, and will give them the opportunity to complete in a legal and constitutional manner, the gieat work commenced under the auspices of the A T igilance Committee. We trust that good men of all parties will unite in supporting this ticket, and avoid the absurdity of electing local officers on grounds which are only relevant to the contests between national parties. Its success will strike a powerful blow at that corrupt political system which maintains its extended and injurious influence by the " cohesive power of public plunder," and will at least give us an opportunity of securing public officers who are not mere tools of party, and who, in being ac...

The Return of Martin Gallagher. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 12 October 1856

The Return of Martin Gallagher. It appears that one of the villains exiled by the Vigilance Committee has returned to this city, and is probably secreted in its neighborhood. His name is Martin Gallagher, who was sent to the Sandwich Islands, and left there for Puget Sound. The Evening Bulletin gives the following account of his return: On Sunday afternoon last the sth instant the brig Glcncoe, Capt Cnrleton, arrived in this port, haviug on board the notorious Martin Gallagher, one of those who were sent away by the Vigilance Committee. The circumstances of his return are as follows : Capt. Carletoa left this port in April last, bound on a voyage from here to I'uget Sound, aud from there to Honolulu. After takiug iv his homeward bound cargo at the above |H. r t, and being ready for sea, a man called on board of his vessel and wished to work his |>assuge to I'uget Sound, and stated that he was a " Consul's man."

The Union Grammar School Celebration. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 12 October 1856

The Union Grammar School Celebration. The festival of this school, which took place on Monday evening, at Musical Hall, was an entertainment at once instructive and cheering. It is pleasant to note such phases of our city's history, particularly at the present time, when our hopes of the future need encouragement. Whatever may have been our shortcomings in relation to our political affairs, we have nothing to reproach ourselves with in regard to our public school system ; much to congratulate ourselves upon in its evident results. The proficiency manifested by the pupils in the various exercises was both surprising and gratifying, and we would be pleased to make particular allusions, if the universality of excellence displayed did not make such mention partial and unjust to those whom want of space would forbid our noticing. We trust that the recurrence of such entertainments will be as frequent as tlie interests of education will allow, both for the sake of the children and those w...

Novel Newspaper Enterprise. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 12 October 1856

Novel Newspaper Enterprise. Something new in the newspaper line is turning op every day. Of course we do not allude to the starting of fresh competitors in the field of journalism, for although the periodicals thus given birth to are new, the practice long since lost its novelty. The latest evidence of progress is the effort of the Chronicle to supply itself with stationery. Ordinary people in want of an article are content to go through the commonplace performance of visiting the place where it is for sale and purchasing it. Not so our cotemporary, as may be seen by the following: Bad Pens.—We have been using, recently, an article of small pens, that are not worth a " Continental dime." If any dealer has got a good, large-sized pen, he will find a customer at our editorial rooms for a box or two. The taste of the writer in substituting the word " dime" for the expletive commonly used in the " Continental" connection is admirable. The " dealer," it appears, took the hint, and the ki...

Are We Wiser than Those who have Gone Before. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 12 October 1856

Are We Wiser than Those who have Gone Before. In dating the commencement of our progress iv civilization at the Middle Ages, we secure a sclfgratulatory condition which might not be our's were we üble to compare the results we have attained with any perfectly reliable statement of the perfection arrived at in arts, sciences, and commerce, in the remote periods of antiquity. There is hardly a notable invention of modem times which is not claimed by some antiquarian to be a mere discovery of a long hidden principle or fact with which the ancients were perfectly familiar ; a truth of which the late Edgar A. Toe gave some amusing illustrations in one of his peculiar sketches. And it is undeniable that even in tbe crowd of discoveries with which the first half of the nineteenth century has swarmed, we have made no progress in the knowledge of the lost arts, known to have Urn practised in antiquity. It would almost seem that we have no advantage over those nations which flourished previou...

Governor Johnson and the " Insurrection Proclamation. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 12 October 1856

Governor Johnson and the " Insurrection Proclamation. We are inclined to commisserate tbe condition of our Executive. And although' it is unmistakably his duty to withdraw his absurd rjrodßjmation, we are willing to spare him that humiliation, especially since the issue of his election manifesto, in which he has magnanimously inclnded San Francisco. His self-denial in thus abstaining from> disfranchising the citizens of our county is worthy of some reward, and as the insurrection proclamation was never legally issued, it is perhaps quite as well that it should not be withdrawn. No man likes to eat his own words, and our Governor has had to stomach so many hard sayings of others in the past five months, that We would fain spare bim the process of rumination over his own. Let those who differ from us picture to themselves the spectacle- that would be presented by this unfortunate official in complying with the demand in question. Imagine him disbanding an army that never wa...

Rer. Mr. Brayton's Reply to Rev. Dr. Scott [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 12 October 1856

Rer. Mr. Brayton's Reply to Rev. Dr. Scott In this work 's issue of the Pacific we find a reply from its editor to the letter of the Rev. Dr. Scott to a review of which we devoted some space iv onr last numlier. In it Pr. Seottpnay be said to have received his quietus, if that condition be attainable in one so desirous of the notoriety attendant on cacalhcs scribciuli, when favored with a publishing medium by amiable newspaper proprietors. There ig not a point of the Philadelphia letter left unnoticed, not a position assumed by its atilhor which is not assailed and overthrown. The reply of the Pacific o]>ens upon l»r. Scolt a logical bombardment, which would lie suggestive of Kcbastopol were it not that the ill-success of the party maintaining the defensive destroys the parallel. The result but adds another to the Pacific triumphs • the friends of reform. We are a little ruriont to sec how Pr. Scott will reconcile his present position with the inference that may lie drawn...

The Federal Authorities and the Vigilance Committee. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 12 October 1856

The Federal Authorities and the Vigilance Committee. Mr. Conrad Wiegand. Assayer in the Hranch mint, who bad MMawi that he would deliver a lecture ou the letter of I»r. Scott in relation to the Vigilance Committee, lias been notified by Mr. J. Ross Hrowne. agent of the Federal t.overnment. that in the event of hi< Mag so. he will lie remove,! from his position in the Mint in this city. It is difficult to sec on what ground* this action would Ih- taken. If Mr. Wiegand is known to 1* in favor of the Committee, certainly a compliance with the instructions from Washington would render him liable to removal, whether he delivered the lecture in question or not. The only ground upon which the tJovernment could justifiably take mmtk action would be that in tbe event of any collision between the authorities and the Committee, the (iovernnient property might be in ilantrer. and it would be necessary that the officers in charge should not be in a position which would force them to r...

The Effigy Outrage. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 12 October 1856

The Effigy Outrage. On Sunday morning last, a;i effigy was found hanging in front of the church of tin.' Rev. Dr. ScottMonday being steamer day, one of the law and murder organs of the city howled piteously over the deed for the lienefit of readers at the Fast. As if aware of the baselessness of its charges, it did not venture to attribute the act to the Vigilance Committee as a body, and in fact made a very lame effort in attempting to fasten it on any members of the organisation. The only result from the publication of the labored slander was a conviction in the minds of nine-tenths of the community that the outrage was a plot on the part of the law and murderlings, got up lor effect at the Kast, and subsc<|ueut events strengthen such a conclusion. There has been no reward offered by " law and order" supporters for the discovery of the perpetrators of the outrage, and since the sailing of the steamer, the journal in question has had little to say on the subject.
