I WAIT FOR THEE. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 19 November 1859

I WAIT FOR THEE. The hearth is swept —the fire is bright, The kettle sings for tea; The cloth is spread, the light is light, The muffins smoke in napkins white, And now I wait for thee. Come home love, come, thy task is done; The clock ticks listeningly ; The blinds are shut, the curtain down, The arm-chair to the fire side drawn, The boy is on my knee. Come home, love, come; his deep fond eye Looks round him wistfully; And when the whispering winds go by, As if thy welcome steps were nigh, He crows cxultingly. In vain—he finds the welcome vain, And turns his glance on mine So earnestly, that yet again, His form unto my heart I strain, That glance is so like thine. Thy task is done —we miss thee here, Where'er thy footsteps roam, No hearth w ill spread such kindly cheer, No beating heart, no listening ear, Like those who wait thee home. Ah, now along the cross walk fast, The well known step doth come; The bolt is drawn, the gate is past, The boy is wild with joy at last — A thousand...

Insurrection at Harper's Ferry. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 19 November 1859

Insurrection at Harper's Ferry. Seven hundred Whiles & Blacks Engaged!! Capt. Brown of Kansas in Command. The Overland Mail from St. Louis brings us very important news of a slave insurrection at Harper's Ferry, Virginia; which after creating considerable excitement and consternation in the disturbed district, was quelled. Several lives were lost before the insurrection was suppressed. The following is taken from the St. Louis Democrat : Au account by the train says that the bridge across the Potomac was filled with the insurgents, all armed. Every light in the town was extinguished, and the hotels closed ; all the btrects in the possession of the mob, and every road and lane leading thereto barricaded and guarded. Men were seen in every quarter armed with muskets and bayonets. They had arrested the citizens and pressed them into service, including many negroes. When this was done, the United States Arsenal and Government payhouse, in which there is said to be a large am...

"I Am Going to Los Angeles." [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 19 November 1859

"I Am Going to Los Angeles." "I am Going to Los Angeles." Thus spoke a young man in reply to a question asked him. lie was a young lawyer in a little town in Calaveras, in good practice, well read in the law and eloquent at the bar. As the stage for the southern country drove np to the door of the hotel at which he was stopping, he stepped into a room where were assembled a number of his friends, and in a solemn manner, bade them all farewell, adding that it might be a long time before they should see him again. They very*»naturally asked him where he was going. He replied with a melancholy smile, "/ am going to Los Antfeles.'' 1 They all shook hands with him, and he departed. A few moments after his leaving the door, the report of a pistol was heard in one of the rooms, and, in great consternation, every one in the house rushed to the scene. In the room occupied bs the young lawyer he was found stretched upon the floor, dead —a pistol in his right hand, which was clutched convulsiv...

County Affairs. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 19 November 1859

County Affairs. In another column will be found an abridged report of the proceedings of the Board of Supervisors. We are able to discover by this first session, that they are determined to examine into and set aright all matters pertaining to the interest of the county. It appears very evident that innovations have been practiced, but to what extent we arc not prepared to say. From the present amount of taxable property, with the rates of assessment thereto affixed, and proper economical management, our county will, or ought to,, be out of debt in from two to three years. The county is now in debt in the sum of about $25,000, of which amount $17,000 is funded, and of the remaining $8,000, there will be $4,000 paid this year. Thus it will be seen, that it will require but a short time, with prudent men at the helm, for the citizens of Tulare county to be relieved from onorous taxation, which is so uniformly the case with a great majority of the counties in this State. The Board have...

Apostrophe to the Moon and Stars. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 19 November 1859

Apostrophe to the Moon and Stars. — -— Lines suggested on witnessing the magnificent source of nightly radiance soaring with unequalled majesty among the smiling stars, and through a blue and cloudless sky. Oh! Thou great and glorious orb, celestial! Illumining all God's footstool in one night; Lighting the path of mortals, low, terrestrial, Cheering with thy soft and mellow light. In wonder gaze we on thy splendor: standing Awe-stricken at the strange, mysterious way Of Him, who made thec —yet not comprehending Things which seem most familiar, seen each day. Art thou, bright moon, a gentle mother guarding, With mother's love, those myriads of stars ? From those thou lovest fearful danger warding, And ne'er 'mongst them permitting 'fam'ly jars' ? Or, art thou, as some mighty monarch, swaying With giant power this unnumbered host— Who bow subservient to thy will—displaying What once to disregard thy word would cost ? Or art thou some vast country's population, Now living through a du...

BEAUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 19 November 1859

BEAUTY. BY PETEII riCKI.EWOKTII, ESQ. When first to earth the Goddess came— With Love her bosom swelling— She took fair Helen's form and name, And Greece became her dwelling. Soon men grew envious of her charms, And kingly suitors sought her; And rival chiefs, in hostile arms, Impurpled earth with slaughter. While round her thus the nations bled — By wars and rapine riven— Sick with the sight, the Goddess fled Back to her native Heaven. Three thousand years she lingered there, Till men improved their manners, And learned to woo and win the fair, Without the aid of banners: Then back to earth she came again, And brought young Cupid with her ; But finding Greece in foreign chain, She took her journey hither. And seeking properly to name The form she chose to dwell in— Still partial to her ancient fame— Took all but "H" of Hellen.

iyWe copy the following from the N. Y. Tribune. It must be nauseating to Horace to publish to the world the picture of his indoctrination. Any man who pormulgates an ism, which has a tendency to result as the Harpers' Ferry tragedy, is a traitor to his country, and justly merits the indignation of an outraged people : "They also fouud letters from various indivividuals at the North, one from Fred. Douglass containing .$lO from a lady for the cause; also a letter from Gerrit Smith, about money matters, and a check or draft by him for $100, indorsed by the cashier of a New York bank, name not recollected. All these are in possession of Gov. Wise. The Governor has issued a proclamation offering $1,001) reward for Cook, and a large number of armed men arc now scouring the mountains in pursuit of him. Edwin Coppic, the only captive not wounded, states: "I am from Cedar County, lowa, and am 24 years old; I am a Republican philanthropist, and came here to aid in liberating negroes; I made ...

The New Congress—The Twenty-one Opposition Members of the South. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 19 November 1859

The New Congress—The Twenty-one Opposition Members of the South. The twenty-one Southern opposition members, in the all-important business of the organization of the new House of Representatives in December next, will occupy a position of the highest responsibility, They will hold the balance of power between the Republicans and the Democrats, and this power may be exercised in the work of organization to the solid advantage of the Union for many years to come. To this great end, should the occasion require it, these twenty-one Southern conservative representatives, against the slavery agitating disunion movements of the day, will be expected to stand as Lconidas and his handful of men stood in the pass of Thermoplae, each and all prepared to die in defence of their position. But though these Southern men will hold this position, they will not be required to sacrifice themselves to defend it. On the other hand, it will enable them to control the entire field of operations, and to di...
