Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 10 June 1847

An Inteiiestini; Little Incident took place nt one of the quays in Dublin. It is slated thai a strapping young country girl, along with her sweetheart, embarked on board one of theemigninl ships then lying at theqViy, with the intention of sailing fm America, and being there married. The fair emigrant was possessed moreover, of £800* which sin; discreetly placed in ihe bauds of the captain of ihe vessel, and had hardly done so wh< n her companion and intended applied to her for a portion of it. This she refused; whereupon he 000*1 bid her good morning and disembarked. The deserted damsel, however, advanced to the gunwale, there harangued a large mob, w ho speedily collected to hear her, and ended not by throwing herself into the river, but by assuring the crowd that if any young fellow who heiril her was willing to lake the place of ihe faithless swain, she was quite ready to .accept of his services upon the same terms.

Romantic Adventures of a Child. John Duncan, the son of a respectable working man in Liveipool,having been its Scotland lor a few weeks last summer with his mother and ihc resl of the family, contracted a strong attachment for ihe j locality nnd the friends with whom he resided. I pon his return home, he frequently requested j Ins parents lo consent to his return, nnd latterly j became so importunate, that he hail io be cbasiisi d I in order to drive the notion from his mind of going to Scotland. W'ilbin the last few weeks unknown lo his family, he accumulated a small stock of: l I bread and money, and wilh two companions, proceded to the * l Scotland boat.

ONE OF NATURE'S JOKES. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 10 June 1847

ONE OF NATURE'S JOKES. We find in a foreign paper an account of o capital joke play ed on the people of London by themselves.

The Needle. Whal a vast amount of labor I is, performed with this little instrument. L'every individual of the feminine gender is supposed to be I more or less skilled in Its use. Each little miss is I anxious to imitate her older companions, and, as soon as =he begins to talk, asks for her needle and : patchwork, and makes herself quite industrious in drawing the thread through il with her liny lingers. She soon becomes attached to it, and in after life spends many a happy hour in the social circle j briskly plying her needle, as well as that little member which is called unruly, and which the j ladies know 50 well how lo keep ill motion. Its use serves to wile aw ay many a passing hour, and answers various olher purposes. How dlllerenl I are the circumstances under which il is used !

The three (Vs, which rule j trade, are in a sad state of fluctuation. Currency j is *' tight as a peep," Com is high, and Cotton is j OR the decline.

For the Chronicle. IN PK I> KNIIEN 01 AND To LI. 11 It IP S* I. I noticed your suggestion in tin; last Chronicle relative to making Cambridge Bridge WM9W of toll for one day, tho fourth of July next. On reading the article, 1 thought there might be several objections, and the advantage gained by any one individual so small that il might be of very little consequence whether the suggestion was tidopted or not. Hut it is not so. The (,'oiponition, it is true, would loose the income of one day, out of three hundred ami aUtyfive, which at first might he thought one of tho best : days in the year; hut when it is considered that rttrt crowded maimer in which they pass the toll house at ticnes on that day, ami especially in the evening when there is a general rush, and when all are in a hustle and hurry, malting it very dilli- ; cult to collect loll; und many taking advantage of the opportunity, are willing to perplex the collectors; and some are disposed to evade plying tolls i...

"ROUGH and Heady,"—Some time ngo a letter wus accidentally sent to a gentleman by a recruiting officer, requesting him lo join a volunteer company then forming, for the .Mexican war. Tho following reply was sent, which though written in rather a rough style, places truths in their proper light: My Dear Sir : Through some unaccountable freak of fortune, I received a note from you to day, and as you were gentlemanly enough to pay the postage you are entitled to a civil though truthful answer.

Look out, look out OOreOi the sea Thut girds thy emerald tdioie, A ship of war ts humid for tlare, Rut wilh no wurlike store; Her Thunder sleeps—'tis Mercy V luealh That wafts her o'er the tea. She gor.- not forth to deal out death, Uut bears new life lv ihee. Thy wasted hands can scarcely strike The chords of grateful praise; Thy plaintive tone ia not unlike Thy voice of prouder days,— Yet, even in sorrow, luueful slill Lei Ei in's voice proclaim, In bardic prujge, 00 every hill Columbia Vgjui iuus name.
