SUMMER DYING. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 26 October 1856

SUMMER DYING. W. H. C. BOSMER. Beauty is waning, a voice of eouiplaintng Comes from the hillside and dell; Dirge-notes are ringing, and cnekets are singing To summer a song or farewell ! Day brightly c!ose>, but where are the roses June wreathed with her tresses of gold ? Soft winds are sighing, where darkly are lying Their rain-beaten leaves on the mould. Sadne.-s comes o'er me, for barren before me Lie fields lhat 1 loved when a boy ; No more in the shadows of oaks tin the meadows Stout mowers their nooning* enjoy. The stubble how lonely ! weeds shooting up only Where grain clothed the generous sod, And reapers were swinging their cradles, and singing Blithe strains to enliven the toil. Cattle are wading where willows vre shading The low, shallow bed of the Mream ; Thistle-down floating, is sadly denoting That summer will pass like a dream. The harvest moon, sailing through mist, is unveiling Ilwr disk like a blood-painted shield, While schoolboy and maidwn, their baske...

As the huge btM Iffjpfl gathering heavily, Like thunder when it rouses in lis Uir, Anil witlTil* hoarse growl shakes the low hung tky, It drew up like a darkness everywhere. Filling the vast catl.cdral; suddenly From the dense mass, a bof*J clear treble broke Like lightning, and the full toned choir awoke. Through gorgeous windows shone the sun aslant.

But still, the truth must be are related to me by ties of blood and kindred. My opportunities in early life were such as to afford me the largest acquaintance with the world.

Want and Luxuriance. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 26 October 1856

Want and Luxuriance. Man will not talc a lesson from nature, and thrive according to the means afforded them by Providence. Here is a prool of this : " In Cyprus, we found, as often happens, the greatest want abounding in the midst of vegetable luxuriance. Miserable Greeks, scantily clothed in a few filthy rags, and covered wilh sores,the result at once of dirt and w ant, are to be met with abundantly in the town, small as it is—a village it would be anywhere else—a town of importance in Cyprus. Peeping into Ihe tumble-down apartments where these miserable wretches live, aud which a very little energy would render comparatively decent and comfortable, we see a family of naked children sprawling about on the floor,'the mother gone out to beg or to work, the father to beg and to smoke. .Superintending such a family, a girl frequently with fine features, and possessing the large vivacious eyes characteristic of the island, may be generally seen ministering to the wants of the little su...

How Proceses of Stereotyping. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 26 October 1856

How Proceses of Stereotyping. An altogether new and very simple method of stereotyping has just been discovered und patented by Mr. Hogg, publisher, of this city. (Edinburgh.) and we have had an opportunity of seeing it .in operation. Mr. Hogg's proce s consists of a mixture of various ingredients, finely pulverized, and mixed up to the consistency of putty. In this slate the substance is spread with a knife on a piece of wrapping paper,and then passed under an accurately adjusted straight edge, by which means a surface as smooth and equal as a sheet of paper is obtained. The material for Ihe matrix being thus lonned. it is laid ou the tyiies, the composition, in a soft state. t>ein<r next the face. An impression is then taken by the common printing-press; but the pressure required is so slight that Mr. Hogg Met an ordinary copying-press for the purpose. The matrix, affixed to the lace of the types, is then laid on a gently-heated hot plate for about twenty min...

"Old Gruber." [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 26 October 1856

"Old Gruber." " One of tlie most out-spoken of Methodist preachers was 1 Old (irulier.' He was a real • Hard Shell.' On one occasion he assisted in divine worship, where a ynnng l're-!>yt< rian clergyman preached violently against some of the doctrines of Methodism. Brother Umber was asked to close the services with prayer, which he did, and as is customary, prayed for the minister. 1 O Lord,' said he. 1 bless the preacher who has preached to us this morning, and make his heart as soft as his head is. and then he'll do some good.' " The above, from the Sierra Democrat, brings to mind a dozen stories about that good old eccentric man. We remember him from our earliest boyhood : every dog and cut, and every tobaccoehewer and over-dressed lady had reason to remember •• Father Oleic*," and woe be to the unfortunate youngster whom he undertook to reprove. Arriving at the house of one of the brethren, his first business was to drive out all the dogs and cats, and the...

Boarders at Saratoga [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 26 October 1856

Boarders at Saratoga The first chap we met on our arrival here at Saratoga was a character. We remembered him ten years ago as a great scoundrel. He was attired in the most gorgeous style, and was picking his teeth on a hotel piazza, with a genteel ease and quiet assurance exceedingly pleasant to behold. At the time we first saw him, be had boarded some two months with a lady, who could not get a dollar from him. At last she thought she would see what baggage he possessed, and for that purpose visited his-room. She found only an empty trunk, which was immediately claimed by another boarder. She saw she was swindled, and so she made up her mind as to her course of action. At dinner that day, when all the boarders were present, she thus accosted him : " Mr. , I niust request you to leave the house, as I want your room for v" paying boarder." He didn't move a muscle : he was a perfect wall of brass. '• 1 trust you will go to-day." continued she ; " I have set your baggage out in the ha...

Important Political Items. From tlie Daily Typhoon (Republican.) On the evening of Monday Mat a Republican banner was raised iv West Pekin. N. .1.. amid the cheers ofa large assemblage ! In the morning the baonei was still there! .' This is a good omen for the future.

The accounts from all parts are very cheering. A correspondent from South Van Winklebors; says that a gentleman of that city, who has always voted the Democratic ticket hitherto, named a pointer pap (which be had just bought) Fremont. This exhibits the sort of feeling which pervades the whole country. The revolution has begun. From the. Daily Mitel (Buchanan.)

An Incident of the War. A few Sundays since, a young and interesting country girl, plainly but neatly dressed, was standing amongst a group of anxious and agitated people on the steam-packet Quay, evidently awaiting .the arrival of the London boat, which it was expected would bring home a portion of the troops returning from the Crimea. As the boat ap preached the ipiay. the young woman of whom we speak, recognized him for whom she evidently was anxiously and impatiently waiting, and in a few minutes was recognized in return. Kind and fond greetings passed between them, the young womaa waved a cordial and heartfelt welcome," and her husband acknowledged her salutations. When the boat touched the quay, she rushed on board, and eagerly making her "way to the place where he stood, she reached out'her hand to bid him welcome again tj home and friends, when the poor fellow faltered for a moment, unable to rep'VsS bis emotions, turned away from her, and burst into tears—both arms had*been...
