Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 8 December 1860

The "Probate Court" has taken under advisement the petition of H. C. Townsend, Esq., Public Administrator, for the private sale of the Visalia Weekly Delta establishment, and will render an opinion on Monday next. We apprehend that the Court will order the sale—when the Delta will no doubt continue on a firm basis. The weather has been excrutiatingly delightful the past three weeks. Warm, sunshiny days, and cool bracing nights however, don't seem to satisfy our farmers who desire to plow, and our stock growers, whose cattle need more feed. We expect the rains will come along most copiously one of these days—as it is promised us, from high authority. When business affairs will look more encouragingly, at least to this class of our citizens. Glorious News.—We are informed upon what we deem good authority, that great unanimity of action will prevail in the secret Legislative councils, and political caucuses of the Union party at Sacramento the ensuing winter. Mr. O. K. Smith, the only ...

Are You Weary of Politics! [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 8 December 1860

Are You Weary of Politics! The history of mankind shows the necessity of political compacts; and the character of a Republic is shaped hy the political discussions of their day. Men frequently say they are tired of the subject of politics—in fact this is untrue—they are tired of the manner of their discussion—for to assert a weariness of them is equivelent to the assertion that we are weary of the protection government affords us in the multiplied avocations of life—that we are willing to go back to chaos where might in all its brutality rules. In all its splendor a Republican form of government can only be perpetuated by the incessant mental labor of the masses. Political agitation is the means by which the purification of the body politic is accomplished, and the highest perfection of government attained. Liberty does not descend to a people; a people must raise themselves to liberty; it is a blessing that must be earned before its fruits can be enjoyed, and its lofty workings app...

Mr. Whitcher said that three years ago he hud surveyed the country between the Tulare Lake and the Joaquin, found the Lake to be thirty-five feet higher than the River. After discussion, or rather conversation, that here ensued, in which it was made clear that Montgomery was about to sell his franchise to Col. Burr, & Co., of San Francisco, that Col. Burr would not engage in the undertaking without the sympathy of the inhahitantsof this county. That he had $100 - 000 to spend in the work, and would probably require an e...

The Crisis. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 8 December 1860

The Crisis. Altogether the most exciting topic of the day, is the continued news of Southern Secession movements. While it may be justly considered a proceeding void of strength, vet no man can view unmoved so bold an attempt to thwart the great ends for which Union vva- perfected. President Buchanan, until recently, has stood silently gazing on passing events —expressing no opinion whatever of the course that will be pursued by him, in the event South Carolina persists in going out of the Union. The Altus Washington correspondent pretends to a knowl- ' edge of the v iews of the Administration on the subject—he says : "At the Cabinet meeting, on Friday, Mr. Buchanan disclosed his intentions, and expressed fully his views of the crisis wh eh had overtaken the country. He had no doubt South Carolina would separate herself as far as she could from the Federal Union —but he did not think any issue would lie forced upon his own Administration. He anticipated the machinery of Government w...

Suicide of a Journeyman Printer.— It becomes our melancholy duty to announce that James Hamilton, who has been for nearly two years employed as a journeyman in this office, committed suicide this morning, Dec. 1st. by shooting himself with a pistol, in the right temple. Mr. Hamilton was an honest, faithful man ; and although for some time betraying symptoms indicative of a peculiar condition of the mind, his most intimate associates had no idea that he was insane. The testimony given before the Coroner's Jury, however, establishes the fact that he was insane at the time of his death.— Amador Ledger. James Hamilton, was one of the few survivors of the immortal Stevenson regiment —that came to California in the ) ear 1847.

Live Bravely. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 8 December 1860

Live Bravely. The world is half-darkened with croakers. Whose burdens are breaking them down, They croak of their stars and ill usage. And grope in the dark for a crown. Why talk to the wind of thy fortune. Or clutch at distinction and gold ? If thou canst not reach high on the ladder, Thou canst steady its base by thy hold. The flower, though hid in a corner, Will as faultlessly finish its bloom ; Will reach for a sparkle of sunshine, That clouds have not chanced to consume. And woulds't thou be less than a flower— With thought, and a brain, and a hand ? Wilt wait for the dribbles of fortune, When there's something that these may command ? There's food to be won from the furrow, And forests that wait to be hewn ; There is marble untouched by the chisel, Days that break not on the forehead of June ; Will you let the plow rust in the furrow — Unbuildcd a house or a hall ? Nor bid the stones wake from their silence— And fret as if fretting were all ? Go learn from the blossoms and ant...
