UNDER THE MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856
UNDER THE MOON. Under the moon as the twilight breeze Ripples the water In pulses of l-ght, We stand on tlie bridge by the sycamore trees. And list to the voices that float through the night; Under the elm row nvsty and dart Murmurs of melody rise from the bank. Sprinkled with innny a dim red lamp! Hark ! 'mid the foliage blossomed with June Tinkles a sereuade under the moon. Under the moon in the Tillage street Gossiping groups in the shadows meet; Seated at dusky doorways there Red-lipped maidens taste of the air: Whispering now of their lovers' eyes. Blue as the beautiful summer skies; Whispering now or their flatteries sweet, As autumn's fruitage dropp'd iv the heat; Until they cadence a trembling tune. Soft aa Uieir pulses, under the moon. Under the moon on the cool sea-shore The wind walks over the spacious floor, Kissing the snowy bosom'd sails, Daintily dipping through azure vales. And over the crisp foam bearing along The musing mariner's midnight song; As by the rising hel...

LAW. raOM LODOWICK harky's uLD PLAT, *' SAM ALLBT." Throat— And how Uiiuk'st thou of Law? aDowA—Most reverently : Law is the world's great light; a second sun To this terrestrial globe, by which all things Have life and being, and without the which Confusion and disorder soon would seise The general state of men : war's outrages. The ulcerous deeds of peace, it curbs and cures; It is the Kingdom's eye, by which she sees The acts and thoughts of men. Throat— The Kingdom's eye ! I tell thee, fool, it is the Kingdom's nose, By which she smells out all these rich transgressors. Nor is*t of flesh, but merely made of wax ; And 'tis within the power of us lawyers To wrest this nose of wax which way w« please. Or it may be, as thou say'st, an eye indeed; But if it be, -cis sure a woman's eye. That's ever rolling.

Pilferings from Plu-ri-bus-tah. [CONCLUDED.] The poet then goes on to describe tbe closing scenes of Yunga-Merrakah s career, in the following strain : Now the Northmen and the Sonthmen, After many a year of quarrel. On the anciant Cuffec question. Came at last to open battle On the bloody field of Kansas : There to have the final struggle For the ownership of Cuffec And the lordship of the country. Both the armies now were mustered ; From the North, the furious legions Hastened to the place of lighting. Armed with swords and armed with pistols, Armed with tracts and armed witth Bibles, Armed with Beecher's " moral rifles," Which would preach most moving sermons, And convince their fix* of error. Fit in the South came other legions, Also ready for the struggle, Also armed with swords and pistols, . Bowie knives and long revolvers. With a store of slinging horsewhips, With a store of tar and feathers, To regale their captive foemcn, Treat their anti-slavery foeman. When they should h...
Rich' Lawyers, [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856
Rich' Lawyers, The lawyers of Elizabeth's reign were rich and extortionate ; thirteen or fourteen years' practice made them rich enough to turn wealthy land-hold-ers. Four hundred pounds was thought only fair profits for a serjeant-at-law's gaias in a piugle term. The old habit of sitting ou stools under the pillars of St. Paul's to receive clieuts had grown into desuetude, and lawyers could now seldom be induced to stir from their chambers without a fee. They were known to receive several angels, and yet never appear iv court; and their grasping avarice and neglect of their poor clients were loudly denounced by poet*, dramatists, and historians. In spite of the local chancery courts of York and Ludlow, poor men toiled up to London to visit Westminster Hall, and willingly ruined themselves in hopes of dragging down their adversaries in their own destruction. . Welshmen, proverbially litigious, walked up barefooted to the great city, with their stockings round about their necks, in h...

The Honeymoon [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856
The Honeymoon Kightly is the first month ol marriage called a honeymoon : a period of unerasing sweetness, cloying at last upon the palled ami exhausted palate, mile-, it have something higher and better upon which to rest than its mere sweetness. Before the year is out. the ■ happy pair" have, alas . too often found indilnrence succeed lo this all-exacting, allimpatient passion ; a consummation not easily to be avoided, but perhaps to be delayed. Many ingenious writers have tried their hands at a definition of love; may I not veuture after them ? LOWS, in its commonest form, I take to be an enthusiasm with which the mind intensifies and dignifies its desires. Unhappily, in most cases, it is only a passing enthusiasm, dying away with the gratification of its desires ; and dying because not founded on lasting qualities ; dying because the .sympathies are not involved, hararieri tlie moral requirements are not responded to with the same facility as the physical. A love, whose root is ...
The Young Czar. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856
The Young Czar. It is certain that in addressing the nobility at Moscow he spoke of the dangers of serfage, and invited his nobility to think about the means of abolishing it. " You know," he said, " tliat I hate the institution of serfage, and I am sure you dislike it also. Let us, therefore, do our best for a slew and steady change, for it is better to give freedom to the serfs than to see them take it against our will." When the Kmpress-mother heard that the Ministers Kleinmichel and f'zeruitshefT had been dismissed, she rushed to the Czar and sharply remonstrated with him for dispensing with the services of two noblemen who had served that great Emperor, Nicholas, for more than twenty years, to his satisfaction. Czar Alexander kissed the hand of his mother, and replied with a smile—" My father was a great genius', and could easily afford to have inferior men for ministers, since they had only to carry out his own views; but as to me, you have often told me that I am by far his i...

How Hungary is Governed. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856
How Hungary is Governed. ■ The following is from a correspondent in Hungary, aud gives a fearful insight as to how the Auslrians are acting in that unlortunate country : —" On the 28th of last mouth an agent of Kossuth, who hatl been for some months in prison, was hanged at Pesth. This was done so quietly that I only* found one person besides my informant who was aware of the circumstance.—on the same authority I believe that he richly deserved his fate. On the other hand, the conduct of the Kmperor and of his Minister Bach, is as bad towards unhappy Hungary as that of the King of Naples is towards that wretched country. Hungary is treated as a conquered country, pillaged an.l insulted. Soldiers are sent into the villages, who arc quartered on all the inhabitants, except ou the nobles who are iv the employment of the Emperor. They insult the people, they break all the lurniture, aud throw out of window anything they dfl not think good enough for them. The taxes are levied at the wil...

Regularly Sold. Puring the month of January. 1850, two gentlemen from New York, one of whom had been in California nearly a year, and the other just arrived, were accidentally overheard iv the following conversation at the Sutter House, Sacrameuto. The new comer was lamenting his condition, and his folly in leaving an abundance at home, and especially two beautiful daughters who were just budding into womanhood—wheu he asked the other if he hail a family. - Yes. sir. I have. I have a wife and six children in New York—and I never saw one of them P After this reply the couple sat a few moments in silence, and then the interrogator again commenced : " Were you ever blind, sir ?" " No, sir." '• Did you marry a widow, sir ?" " No. sir." Another lapse of silence. " Did I understand you to say, sir, that you had a wife and six children living "iv New York, and had never seen one of them ?" '• Yes, sir—l so stated it." Another ami a longer pause of silence. Then the interrogator again inqui...
Telescopic Detection of Thieves. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856
Telescopic Detection of Thieves. For some time past, says the Glasgow (Scotland) Post, the managers of" the Glasgow and Renfrew Railway have been greatly annoyed by the mysterious disappearance of portions of merchandise, solid and liouid, intrusted to their care for conveyance to and from the royal burgh. This was particularly the case with the spirits which were carried up and down the line, and the abstraction of a few bottles of the " harley-bree" from the puncheons was of almost daily occurrence. Every possible manoeuvre to entrap the mysterious gpiritstealers was tried in vaiu. and the mauager, Mr. Congleton, was almost on the point of despairing, when he hit upon the following plan of detecting the guilty persons. Having provided himself with a good teloscope, he placed himself iv such a position in the station-house as to command a view of a large portion of the live. A. train laden with barrels was on its way to Rttafrew, and when a good way down, Mr. Congleton, through his...
Sleep. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856
Sleep. JSleep is necessary to life in every stage and form. It is tbe balmy bath wlrch Tonng say* " supplies, lubricates, "and keeps in play tbe variom movements of this nice machine—roau. ' It is great Nature's second course, man's rich restorative " chief nourisher in life's feast." In this fast age, when it is the fashion with many of the middle class, and particularly of the upper, to turn nhrht into day, and invert the order of Nature, it is scarcely to be wondered at that few last oat tbe allotted term of life. No matter what be a mail's occupation—physical or mental, or like Othello's " gone," aod living in idleness—the constittidon cannot last, depend upon it, without a Si»#ia»ay of regular and refreshing sleep.

A Master Den. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856
A Master Den. A thought that will clear up many puzzles is like a key that will unlock many doors. Such a thought is oue. which we shall suggest. But first, to show what it is wanted for. Here are questions that intelligent and upright men are daily asking : How is it that scoundrels could so thoroughly rule in San Francisco so long ? How is it that brutal and assassinating rogues go unpunished by hundreds in Xew York ? How is it that such outrageous political newspaper attacks—we make no individual charge— are made and permitted by subscsjMfe? How is it that great and abound ? How is it that assaults aud moH Ibr expression ol' opinion multiply and go nnwlHpf justice ? And more broadly : about are often put: 1- the United States to live and as one great nation, or to fall into anarchy^Jpruin, under Ihe attacks of intestine and vices ? Are no new happy Republics ever to rise? for the experiment has failed in Mexico, in South America, in Europe. Now we can not pretend to have found a ...
