HOW WEEDS ARE POPAGATED. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 1 February 1870

HOW WEEDS ARE POPAGATED. It is an often noticed fact that after fresh ground has been broken to a considerable depth, or the earth thrown up from the bottom of a pit or well, that new and curious weeds make their appearance on the sur face thus exposed. It is true that seeds, alike of useful or noxious plants, arc carried to a great distance by birds. The down of the thistle seed floats it afar. But do the birds and the wind account for all the facts to be observed in connection with the spread of seeds ? We think not There are certain scrts of seeds, par ticularly those of the oleaginous kind, which keep in vigour a great many years when deeply buried. What observer of these things has not noticed weeds not before found in the locality, and the seeds of wliich had no adaptability for floating in the atmosphere, suddenly spring up rank on earth that in sinking a well or shaft came from a depth of many feet, and had no admixture with the surface soil ? It would really appear as if th...

A MELANCHOLY CHATTER OF THE MISSISSIPPI HORROR. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 2 February 1870

A MELANCHOLY CHAPTER OP THE MISSISSIPPI HOEKOR. A mrte-dc-visilc was taken from a trunk of ladies' clothing. It represented rather a stout lady ; dark brown hair done up in braids and hanging low on the nock ; the collar was white and narrow, and a breastpin ; right hand resting on table, and riding gloves on; earrings j forehead high, and features regular. The body was that of Mrs. Hmim Fitch, and. this was all there was f.hnt told of the unhappy fate of this singular woman. .She was well known in Louisville, and her history is familial- to many persons in that city. Mrs. Fitch, as she called herself, was the daughter of a respectable citizen of Louisville, now dead; her maiden name was Serena Talbot. 'vfaien a girl, her parents almost idolised her, and when, as bIiq -was budding into womanhood, she became th wife of one of our wealthiest business raon. Petted and spoiled though she was, and more a doll than a wife, the husband loved her, and did everything in his power to promote ...

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 2 February 1870

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1870. We had expected that the opening of the new parliament would hare been characterised by something like gentlemanly forbearance and courtesy, on the part of t!ie leading members, or of those who aspire to be considered such, on both sides of the House. We imagined that the unseemly course pursued in the Assembly, by the most viol ent partisans, during the late session, would, by common consent of the leaders of both parties, be eschewed in future. We were confirmed in entertaining these hopeful expectations, by the very temperate manner in which the proceed ings were conducted, until Mr. Buchanan rose in his place yesterday afternoon. The mover of the address refrained from all party allusions in the course of' his somewhat lengthy, and certainly very sensible speech. Sir James Martin spoke with unusual brevity on so important a proposal as the adoption of a Ministerial Address ; con fining himself wholly to the consideration of the paragraph relating to ...

There was a grouping together of colours, of broadcloth and gay. silks, of official wigs and pretty bonnets, of bald heads and pretty faces, that made the affair a very imposing matter indeed. The reverend senators were all there in immaculate black coats, and the whitest of vests ; the Pros dent was there, crisp and starched, in his wondrous robe; the Black Rod was there in the neatest of tie wigs, tightest of stockings, the most corn suggestive shoes. And around and about, on each side of the Chamber, and clustering like butterflies in the gallery,, were ladies in silks, in the daintiest of muslins, with tlie most impossible hats, and the most artfully constructed tresses ; Indies blonde, Indies brunette, ladies young, ladies— no, not old— but blooming; ladies beautiful, and ladies — well, anyway, there were about one hundred and forty ladies — the most interest ins element of the spectacle.
