Glass Ballot Boxes. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 26 October 1856

Glass Ballot Boxes. A very pretty piece of mechanism has been on exhibition during the past week, designed to guard against the repetition of such frauds in onr elections as have been of frequent occurrence heretofore. It is a ballot-box of plate glass, secured at its corners with brass, and to it is nttached an apparatus which indicates by a bell the depositing of each vote at the time it is passed through Ihe aperture designed to receive it, and records on a dial at one of its sides the number of ballots thus placed in the box. It is very pretty and very expensive. Each one will cost fJIOO, and the Hoard of Supervisors have very properly declined sipuidering the public money on such an ornamental adjunct to the ]ierformance of the elective franchise. Some of our cotemporaries, led away by the ingenuity and skill manifested in the construction of the toy. are enthusiastically recommending that n sum be raised by voluntary subscription to furnish the city with the number required fo...

Electro Chemical Baths. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 26 October 1856

Electro Chemical Baths. There has probably been no discovery in the science of remedying the condition of diswuscd humanity, of equul importance with the application of electricity through thi medium of wuter, which, has not elicited a greater amount of op|iosition from the regular practitioners than it seems to have called forth. This is probably owing to the fact that the proof of its efficacy is reduced to a demonstration and is in perfect accordance with previously known properties of the electric fluid Tbe main question under discussion ap|iears to have been whether the operation of electricity could be best conducted by means ofa body bath, iv which the whole jierson is immersed, or a foot bath with the wire connecting with the body at the palms of the hands aud the soles of the feet. Hy the courtesy of Dr. Bourne, of this city, we have been enabled to examine the results of some na riinent.s conducted with B view to deciding this question in New York. The result is stated by ...

A Few Plain Words to a Monomaniac. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 26 October 1856

A Few Plain Words to a Monomaniac. Wo have received from Mr. W. Carroll several tickets for his lecture, which is announced for repetition this evening. With no desire to wound the feelings of the gentleman who has made us the recipient of this courtesy, we must decline the invitation, tjelicTing that time given to attendance would be wasted. We do not recognize his right to claim that we sbonld " be more than just—generous." Our generosity in such relations was long since exhausted, although starting: with rather more than the average stock, and our duty to our readers does not, in our viow, claim more than justice. Tbe reasons of Mr. Carroll for his persistence in repeating his lecture are set forth in a circular accompanying his tickets, which we copy, not wishing that those whom we address should be debarred the privilege of hearing both sides. Here they are: Having been officially warned of ostracism by the Federal Government, for the simple exercise of-my rights as an American...

The Woes of Walking. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 26 October 1856

The Woes of Walking. If any individual possessing reputation for sanity were to propose to " take a walk," asn pleasurable performance, to any citizen of .San Francisco, that personage would at once be set down ns an individual fresh Irom the States or recently from the mining region, and would be left to the lessons his pedestrian experience would soon teach him. If there ever was a city with its sidewalks arranged in a manner perfectly calculated to render progress a rcgulur series of stumbles and mis-steps, San Francisco is entitled to the full benefit of such proud prominence. We confess to individual prejudice in the matter. It was but the' day before yesterday, that in endeavoring to eaten a glimpse ofa pretty passing faco. we were reduced to a slate of humiliation impossible to depict with a POO. Two ladies were going by our office door just as we emerged from that classic locality. We passed down the street behind Imam, and as they walked somewhat slower tliun their follower...

The Evening School. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 26 October 1856

The Evening School. There is a very pi neral feeling of dissatisfaction manifested in n'ution to the management of this institution. The pa pill aad |>ersims riniting the school unite in i iphtiuing of the neglect evineeil hy the Hoard of Kilucution in this respect. The teachers are said to be neither ovcr-eoni]ictent nor industrious, anil the ends for which the school was established, do not appear to be secured in its operation. We regret] to notice any failure in schemes of this description. A well-regulated sight school is a public necessity in every large city, und Ihere is no reason why it should \„- carried on less vigoroitsly or with results any hw enronraging than other branches of the system of general education If it demands great** capabilities iv the hwliai lon it also atfords them an opportunity for earrving out their educutiotiul de-igns mm ohar|*v4atrtwd by obstacles than lhat all'otded in the schools established for younger members of community.

CITY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 26 October 1856

CITY NEWS. Kxhibttjos or Rixcox PorxT ScnooL.—We nttenrled this entertainment at Musical Halt on Friday evening. Tlie hall was crowded, ami the tasteful decoration of the portion of its space deroted to the exercises of tho pupils under the direction of Mr. Swett, made the scene quite a pretty picture Tlie performances passed off very agreeably, and to the great satisfaction of the audience. The elocutionary exercises evinced care in the training of the pupils so Eir as distinctness nf articulation was concerned, but in intonation nnd the variety of modulation so essential to oratorical effect, there were marked deliciencies apparent. In the instances of some of the boys, we noticed that their voices were pitched too high ut the coinuwnce'i.eat of their delivery, and more attention appeared a, have been given to quantity than quality of tone. This destroyed the effect of many subsequent passages where increased emphasis or augmented volume of vuidc was necessary, and rendered the de...

THE WEEK'S AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 26 October 1856

THE WEEK'S AMUSEMENTS. Metbopolitan Theatre.—Mrs. Julia Dean Hayne has been jierfbrmmg a round of characters at this place of amusement through the week to excellent houses. As we have previously noticed her performances at length, it is net necessary to review the week's doings ('which comprised no novelty) nt length. Her most successfid personation, in our opinion, during the present engagement has been tbat of I'urtheniii, in hunwur. American Theat ie.—Miss Mary Provost st ill con ti lines to draw fair houses, although she is not supported us she should be by the stock company. She has appeared in some of the pieces performed during the week at the oiher theatre, and in some instances with a success certainly not second to that of the rival candidate for popular favor. Her performance of Julia in the llum'ltUick, was a creditable one, and when her indisposition is taken into account (she having fainted twice during the performance) may be considered a success. We do not, however,...

It is woven by hand labor in households scattered over the empire, principally in the winter season, when there must be a cessation of out-door employment. Some families manufacture but one or two pieces a season, others twenty or thirty. They are carried to the nearest populous town and sold to a trader, who packs them in bales and transports them to St. Petersburg, or some (•titer seaport, where they are again sold for exportation.
