Poetical. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 21 June 1862
Poetical. [Original.] Disappointment. Not written yet ?—alas ! too tri'.e, liut oh ! I cannot weep, The loneliness within my heart For tears is yet too deep; But Annie's trusting heart replied No. n &gt; t at can lot be. For here are now the tokens, That have been given me. Yes ! here a ting glistening ring Upon my finger gleams, Telling of the self-same one I viait in my dreams; A worn-out verse clipped from a book— Simple though it be, 'Twas given by that absent one, And now is dear to me. A letter too—the first and last— Ths words all dim and torn, 'Twas written, oh ! so long ago, Wh-n love seemed newly bom ; Then here's a card—a simple thing, Hut strangely too, 'twill tell Of many an hour in pleasure spent, NVith one I lov'd so well.

Sensations during Battle. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 21 June 1862
Sensations during Battle. One who lias re :ently been in battle, and who desires to satisfy the curiosity of those who desire to know how men unaccustomed (o stand fire, felt when first under it, says ; "I do not suppose I have much physical or moral courage, but the sensations under fire, judging fronj my experience, are different from what is exoected. "A reasoning man at first feels alarmed, and his impulse is to run away; Hid if he has no reason to stand, he probably docs run ; but at each exposure he grows less timid, and after hear ing cannister and grape about his ears i dozen times, begins to think he is not destined to be hurt. "lie still feels uneasy, perhaps, but the danger becomes fascinating, and though ho don't wish to be hit, lie likes to have narrow escapes, and so voluntarily places himself in a position where he can incur more risk. "After a while ho begins to reason the matter, reflects upon the doctrine lof probabilities, and how much powder j.ind lead is necessa...
"OLDEN MEMORIES" [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 21 June 1862
"OLDEN MEMORIES" Leaf from the Journal of a Ballet-Girl. I am sitting by the open window of my little attic room, looking out upon Nature's lace. The winter has passed away, and the grass upon the hill-side is green and fresh. The trees are doning their emerald robes, and tarly flowers are already in blossom, as I look over the house-tops, I sec Mr. Carey's high and stately mansion—and from my window I can see tfje upper part of the house quite plainly. As I look upon it,olden memories crowd upon my mind. I go back to the time when I, a happy, care-free child, wandered through the spacious rooms and halls of that mansion, and over the magnificent grounds which surround it—for that was my home —and then I thought that life was a beautiful, happy dream without care, pain, or sorrow ; but since then I have learned to know that life is not a dream, but a stern, h;\rd reality, and that battles must be fought and won. It has been a bitter lesson to learn, but I have it by heart now, and c...

Marin County Journal. San Rafael, June 21, 1862. OUR country has, until the recent rebellion, enjoyed many years of unparalelled prosperity and tranquility. — The excitement and fierceness of the periodical Presidential election has always passed over and been succeeded by a quiet and patriotic submission of the minority to the voice of the majority. A feeling of security in the permanency and blessings of the government and its liberal institutions seemed to have induced a seductive lethargy on the minds of the people; fanned and, deepened by the arts of aspirants to high places of honor and power. They could not conceive it possible that treason, so black and devilish, could find a lodgement in the hearts of American citizens; and not, till the thunder of war had aroused them from slumber, did they behold a third part of the Republic in rebellion against its laws and free institutions. Self-reproach, for their inactivity and want of love of country, seemed to infuse into the minds...

SONOMA COUNTY NOMINATIONS. — The Union County Convention of Sonoma have nominated James H. McNabb of the Argus, for Senator, and E. F. Dunne, W. M. Rider and J. B. Beeson, for the Assembly. IN FINANCES. — The county of Placer now owes but $450, while she has in her treasury to the credit of the county, $26,080. No news from the seat of war since June 7th up to the time of our going to press. The wires have been down at some point east of Salt Lake, and, in consequence of the floods, occasioned by the melting of the snow on the mountains, access to the line for repairs has been difficult. The poles in some places are supposed to have been swept away. The latest accounts from Salt Lake state that the waters were receeding, and that the repairing of the wires was progressing rapidly, and the line would be in operation by the 20th. We may, therefore, have the result of the the last two week's operation on the battle field to-day. UNION ADMINISTRATION PLATFORM. — The following platform a...

TOWN AND COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 21 June 1862
TOWN AND COUNTRY. ROADS AND HIGHWAYS. — In another column will be found a communication in regard to a public road in Tomales Township, which merits the attention, not only of the Board of Supervisors, but of the people of the whole county. We have before heard the merits and importance of this road discussed, and are in no doubt of its imporance and practicability. The farmers in that section of the country have been, and still are compelled, at heavy expense and much inconvenience, to convey their produce a long distance to a convenient depot, in another county, for shipment to market; and this only, for the want of a road constructed over a sand hill of easy grade, leas than a mile in length. This road, completed, would open an excellent shipping point on Tomales Bay, which would soon become of vast importance to the county. A liberal expenditure for road purposes is good economy, and we are satisfied that the people of this county will sanction the creation of a reasonable debt,...
Who is to Blame? [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 21 June 1862
Who is to Blame? Editor Marin County Journal: At a meeting of the Board of Supervisors in May last, a petition was presented to that Honorable body, signed by a large number of farmers of Tomales township and vicinity, praying for the improvement of a road over certain sand hills about fifteen hundred yards in extent, (a portion of the County Road,) which hinders them in reaching an important shipping point on Tomales Bay. This petition, unlike any other asking for public improvement, came with an offering of some Twelve Hundred Dollars, contributed by individual farmers, out of their private means, to assist in this much needed work of improvement, and praying immediate action. The necessity and importance of the road was earnestly presented — it was shown that the road had seen surveyed as a County road in the year 1854, but up to this time not one dollar, either in labor or money, had been spent in its improvement. It was also shown that in consequence of the want of this improve...
State Prison Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 21 June 1862
State Prison Matters. The Alta of the 3d inst furnishes the following statistics, of the workshops of the Prison, which were carefully inspected on the 4th inst., by the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Secretary of State: — "During the first two days of the Administration of the present Warden, the prisoners were put on short rations in order to allow provisions to be sent from San Francisco, such was the destitution in the Commissary's stores; while the same state of affairs existed in the shops regarding tools. These serious drawbacks, coupled with being obliged to go into the market as purchasers just after the rise in the price of provisions, and buying on the credit of the State, made it impossible to obtain stores at the usual contract rates. The total cost for sustenance, from January 18th to June 1st, was $14,155,30, while the cost for the same number of men, under the prices formerly paid, would have been but $8,967,86, making the present cost of sustenance 12 4-5ths cen...
