A Word to our Patrons. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 22 December 1860

A Word to our Patrons. In taking our place in the Editorial Chair of the Delta, a few words by way of introduction would not be improper—but in glancing over the last number of the paper, we observe that our colleague has briefly and clearly defined its position. To his promote iamento we have nothing to add— save to repeat to the public the announcement that the Delta "still lives," and to assure the people of Tulare County that it will be our especial aim to make it a permanent institution, worthy of the patronsge of all classes, and second to none of our country cotemporaries. Having come here with the intention of making this place our permanent home, it will be not only a duty and pleasure, but our interest to advance the welfare and prosperity of this section of country, so far as may come within the scope of our humble ability as a public journalist. With our past career in that line many among our friends and patrons are familiar. They can judge whether the Delta is likely t...

From the Mountains, Down. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 22 December 1860

From the Mountains, Down. The trip from Hornitos to Visalia, by Hice & Wilson's line, "barrin" the inconveniences incident to a start near midnight, consequent loea of sleep, and bad weather such as we experienced on the passage down—might be pleasant. Variety of scenery, a good natural road, good teams, and a driver you can trust, are very agreeable accompaniments of travel. These, the passenger is sure of upon this route, besides a breakfast at McCrea's "Oak Hotel" at Millerton—and an excellent dinner at the stopping place at Scotsburg, where the same proprietor has recently erected a commodious house for the entertainment of travelers. The country in that neighborhood gives unmistakeable evidence of the nature of its resources, in the numerous droves of cattle, horses, and sheep which dot the plains in every direction. Probably no portion of California offers greater inducements for stock .raisers and agriculturists than the King's river Valley. While to the' lover of...

The President's Message. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 22 December 1860

The President's Message. Night before last we received by Telegraph a brief summary of the President's Message, which we published in form of an Extra, and republish in the Delta of to-day. The Message is represented to be lengthy and as a consequence, the brief outline given in the dispatch must be imperfect and liable to errors. It was received at 10 o'clock, and issued in extra form from this office at half past eleven. This in a country office, is making pretty good time. To the boys who " humped themselves " on the occasion, the credit is due. Probably before another week we shall receive the document entire, when we may make some extracts, and perhaps comment thereon. Up to the date of writing, it is the best we can do. From the abstract given it would seem that it is principally devoted to the Secession movement — proof conclusive that the question is one which is agitating the public mind generally, as well as puzzling the heads of Statesmen. The Union Men in Boston. —The Te...

From Coso. —Mr. James Hitchens, President of the Coso Silver Mining Company, arrived in Visalia on Tuesday Evening, last, Mr. H. speaks favorably of the mining prospects of that district, and is of the opinion that a great number of people will be attracted thither during the next season.

Not over twenty men altogether will winter there, although our informant thinks there would be no difficulty attending it.

"It Might Have Been." [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 22 December 1860

"It Might Have Been." With heavy head bant on her yielding hand, And half flushed cheek, bathed in a fevered light— With restless lips, and most unquiet eyes, A maiden sits, and looks out on the night. The darkness presses close against the pane; And silence lieth on the elm arse old, Through whose wida branches steals the white faced moon In fitful gleams, as though 'twere over bold. She hears the wind upon the pavement fall, And lifts her head, as if to listen there ; Then wearily she taps against the pane, Or folds more closely the ripples of her hair; She sings unto herself an idle strain, And through its music all her thoughts are seen; For all the burden of the song she sings Is, "0 my God! it might have been!" Alas! that words like these should hays the power To crush the rosss of her early youth— That on the altar of her remembrance sleeps Some hope, dismantled of its love and truth— That 'mid the shadows of her memory lies Some grave, moss covered, where she loves to lean, ...
