Sonoma, Jane Ist, 1850. "Toall to whom It may be a benefit:" This is to certify that I, the undersigned, was troubled with that soul-destroy-ing complaint, "Seminal Weakness, 1 * or "Nocturnal Emissions,"' aud had become so bad as to be confined to my bed, on account of the extreme debility arising from it. My back pained me continually ; my limbs were so benumbed, at times, that I had but little use of them; my appetite was almost entirely gone, added to which, I became insane, and during the month of March last I was perfectly unconscious of anything that transpired at that time. My friends consulted Dr. J. C. Young, of San Francisco, and he undertook to cure me. I cannot say that I am as strong now as I was before I was taken sick, but lam gaining strength every day. My mind is calm, and my nervous system, that was very irritable before, ia now as quiet as 1 could wish it; in fact, I consider myself well, and wish to praise God, and thank l»r. Young for it. I hope every one will ...

MISCELIANEOUS. ai^ A MEED OF JUST PRAISE. rpHE INGRATITUDE OF MAN TO HIS FELLOW MAN JL is so often met with In life that testimonials, prompted by the finer feelings of the heart, are oases in the life of those who sacrifice their best days in philanthropic devotion to the alleviation of the ills of frail mortality. Empiricism floods the columns of our press with fraudulent and fictitious letters, singing pssans to the worth of their own egotistical charlatanism. Below we append a letter from a worthy man, who, a brief period since, seemed destined to "shuffle off this mortal coil;'' who looked forward to his dissolution with that pleasure which only those weighed down by the heavy hand of disease can. Contrary to hope, the ability of a skillful physician has restored him to his former health. Relieved from his terrible situation, and impelled by gratitude, he makes known his case and remedial agent, and his statement is authenticated by a Notary Public. The demands of society imper...

LOVE MY BABY, MOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 19 October 1856

LOVE MY BABY, MOTHER. MRS. MARY JANK Phillips. A priceless jewel, toother dear, I to your care have given. The one my Father sent to me From his bright home in heav'n. The little cherub thut awhile Was pillowed on my breast; But now within your gentle arms Has round a place of rest. Oh ! cherish him with fondest care. For, like a tender flow'r He needs a loving, watchful eye. To guard him ev'ry hour; To shield each ruthless wintry blast From off his sunny head, Or he may close his baby eyes. And sleep among the dead. Then love my baby, mother dear. And teach him oft to say My name, so he will not forget Me, tho' I'm far away. Oh ! often kiss his baby cheek As I would, were I near. And lore him, just as welt as you l.o\ c me, my mother dear. And when his little chubby hands Arc full of roguish fun. And he, perchance in innocence. Some mischief dire has done, Oh ! dit not harshly check him then, Nor chide his childish glee; But love my baby, mother dear. As well as you love me.

PRAISE OF LITTLE WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 19 October 1856

PRAISE OF LITTLE WOMEN. In a little preciott. stone what splendor meets the eyes ! In a little lump of sugar how much of sweetness lies ? So in a little woman, love grows and multiplies : You recollect the proverb says—" a word unto the wise." A pepper-corn is very small, but seasons every dinner More than all other condiment, although it is sprinkled thinner; Just so a little woman is, if love will let you a in her— There's not a joy in all the world you will not find within her. And as within the little rose yon find the richest dyes, Aud in a little grain of guld much price and value lies. As from a littie balsam much odor doth arise So in a little woman there's a taste of paradise. The skylark and the nightingale, though small and light of wiug. Yet warhle sweeter in the grove than all the birds Uiat sing j And so a little woman, though a very little thing, Is sweeter far than sugar, and flowers that bloom in spring. San Francisco.

Prince Albert Locked Out A foreign correspondent of the X. Y.

Prince Albert, it seemeth, did once get into had habits of staying out late at night, aud not coming home till morn ing, whereat her Majesty, his wife, grew much anxious und grieved. It was not certain that he was at the eider cellar, nor could she prove that he did uot come home in proper condition, for she endeavored to get into his rooms on some such occasions, and failed most signally. By the way of episode, the story is that the reason of her failure was this : she knocked and said : " Albert, opeu to your Queen.'' But Albert was silent. " Albert, your Queen is at the door." No reply. And so she tried morning after morn...

Definition of a Fast Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 19 October 1856

Definition of a Fast Woman. " Belle Britain" is writing letters from Newport to the Newport Minor, with a degree of trti out nnd recklessness that distances "Fanny Fern."' The following will serve as an illustration : •By the way, 1 overheard a funny conversation last evening, between a gentleman and lady who were promenading behind me, from which 1 learned the definition of a ' fast woman.' The couple were discussing the attractions of a young mdy who receives a great deal of attention here from 'the Ihuux — (such as we have)—when the gentleman remarked that he had not yet been able to discover the charms or the fair ore in tpietrtion. ' Oh,' said the lady • she is font, ami that's what makes all the gentlemen like her.' ' But what does that mean?' iuouired the gentleman a little toughlv.

What Might Have Been. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 19 October 1856

What Might Have Been. As to the passengers of a storm-tossed bark, her arrival and safe mooring at the haven to which her voyage was directed, there is in the touch of land, the release from ship-board, and escape from the perils of tbe deep, an influence which speedily consigns to forgetfulness the alternated fears and hopes that each bosom bore day after day, with the ocean raging around them; so we, in the triumphant realization of our hopes, the joyful attainment of our ends, pause not to reflect on what might have beeu the record of tbe past five moths. It is a glorious picture that now adorns the pages of our city's history: a peop'.e crushing tyranny, yet sparing tyrants ; a revolution not only avoiding excess, but unmarked by the slightest abuse of power ; a community submitting to be stigmatized as traitors, and refraining from revenging the perpetrators of the insult; a mob of ruffians marshalled under a banner bearing the sacred motto of law and order, defeated without a ...

Too Hot to Hold Him. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 19 October 1856

Too Hot to Hold Him. Martin Gallagher, wbo recently returned to our city in the full belief that the " good time coming" in the shape of a " reaction" had actually arrived, has, it appears, come to the conclusion that this city is not a locality suited to bis peculiar abilities, and has again made bis exit, probably for a permauent residence elsewhere. Had he been captured by those in search of him he would very properly have been made an example of, such as would have prevented bis fellow-scoundrels from emulating his conduct. As it is, we think tbat we are in no danger of a visit from aDy of his kidney, particularly after they become aware of the reception of the letter of their clerical advocate, whose faith in a change of public sentiment should by this time have become somewhat less firm and abiding. It is well that these villains should understand that the reform movement is « not for a day but for all time." The sooner they do so the better for our city, and the greater tho l...

The Case of Briant. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 19 October 1856

The Case of Briant. Gov. Johnson seems determined to so multiply his acts of weakness and incapability that their very number shall prevent their being remembered or cited as instances of Executive malfeasance and culpability. Consistently with his course in relation to the law and murder faction in carrying out his sympathy for crime and criminals, he has pardoned Alex. Briant, the individual who, for an attempt to blow up the building occupied by a firm to which he was a debtor, was sentenced to the State Prison for either one or two years, which, onr admirable system of legal proceedings, and careful manner of recording them, prevents our ascertaining. By way of preventing the loss of his privileges as a citizen by so estimable a member of our community, Briant was released in advance of his having spent a year at St. Quentin, the reason assigned being that he conducted himself quietly and properly during his residence in that classic locality. It seems to us that a pardon based ...

Members of the Vigilance Committee at the East [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 19 October 1856

Members of the Vigilance Committee at the East The treatment experienced by some meml>crs of the Vigilance Committee nt present iv the Eastern States, at tbe hands of the ruffians exiled thither by that body, is such as render it imperatively necessary that such persons should be on their guard against those attacks, particularly as the police of New York, the city where the outrages have occurred, do not afford them protection at take any measures to bring the offenders to justice. The instinct of self-preservation will justify them in defending themselves in this emergency by any means they may sec lit to employ. When society fails to secure the safety of its members, the individuals suffering thereby have no other mode Ml to them than is theirs in a state of nature, and if technicalities of law be violated thereby, it is the fault of those who pretend to administer justice, aud not of those thus compelled to act in a manner which in well regulated communities would be ...

CITY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 19 October 1856

CITY NEWS. Reported Escape or Martin Gallagher. —From the Globe of yesterday morning, we copy the following:— " We have information ofa reliable character that Martin Gallagher, 'The Expelled,' who returned to this city recently from Pugct Sound, sailed for Callao on Thursday, in thej ship Euterpe. A narrative of Gallagher's adventures since his forced departure for the Sandwich Islands, on the sth of June last, in company with Billy Carr and Edward Bulger, and of the circumstances which induced him to risk his life in returning to San Francisco, would undoubtedly be full of romantic interest It appears that just previous to his arrest by the Vigilance Committee, he formed a matrimonial engagement with a female in this city. .The woman desired to follow him into exile, but he wa* in hopes that a change in tbe condition of affairs io San Francisco, would permit of his return, after a short absence, and it was resolved that she should remain.

Mr. Wiegand'i Lectures. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 19 October 1856

Mr. Wiegand'i Lectures. The first lecture of this gentleman, under the soubriiruel of YV. t'arrol, came off at Musical Mall on Sunday evening last, a large audience being iv attendance. We were fortunately not present, but are not the less sincere in tendering our thanks for the accommodations in the lodging line which we understand were oft-red by the lecturer for our benefit, as we understand that the tendency of his remarks was of a highly soporific character. When we wish a good night's rest we shall take occasion to peruse at bed-lime the pamphlet shortly to he published, containing Mr. Carrol's address, for our faith is stroug in its efficacy as an opiate. We learn that the gentleman was especially severe on several of the newspa|>crs in this city because they declined inflicting on their readers communications which, in the opinion of. their writer, were highly instructive and entertaining, and whose exclusion from publicity he not only regards as a public misfortu...

THE WEEK'S AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 19 October 1856

THE WEEK'S AMUSEMENTS. American Theatre.—On Monday evening Miss Mary Provost made her first appearance before a California audience at this theatre. The honse was well filled, and the lady was met with the enthusiastic welcome with which our community invariably greet artistes of merit and established reputation. The play was Ingomar, Miss Provost appearing in the cnaracter of p arthenia . jjer face and figure are well adapted to the production of stage effect, and her action is natural and graceful. In her personation of the Greek maiden, however, there was too evident an appearance of effort, a lacking in the portrayal of the simplicity with which the antbor designed to invest the character. Portions or her performance were given with marked effect, but as a whole it was not a remarkable effort, although its success was heightened by her sweet singing in one of its scenes, a proficiency which gives her an advantage over actresses excelling her in other requirements of the part.
