UNDER THE MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856
UNDER THE MOON. Under the moon as the twilight breexe Ripples the water in pulses of 1 ght, We stand on the bridge hy the fvcamore trees. And list to the voices that float through the night; Under the elm row and dark Murmurs of melody rise from the bank, Sprinkled with many a dim red lamp I Hark ! "mill the foliage blossomed with June Tinkles a serenade under the moon. Under the moon in the village street Gossiping groups in the shadows meet; Seated at dusky doorways there Ked-hpped maidens taste of the air: Whispering now of their lovers' eyes. Blue as the beautiful summer skies; Whispering now of their la#etlM sweet, Ai autumn's fruitage dropp'd in the heat; Until they cadence a tremhling tune. Soft as their pulses, under the moon. Under the moon on the cool sea-shore The wind walks over Ihe spacious floor. Kissing tte -nowy hosom'd sails, Daintily dipping through azure vales, And over the crisp foam l&gt;eartng along The niu&gt;ing mariner's midnight song ; As by...

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 failprofits for a serjeant-at-law's gains in a single term. The old habit of sitting ou stools under the pillars of St. Paul's to receive clients had grown into desuetude, und 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 poets, 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 ruiued 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 hopes...

The Honeymoon. Kiehtlv is the first month ot marriage called a honeymoon : a period of unceasing sweetness, cloy. ' ral la-t upon the (Milled and e\hau-ted palate, ■nlees it have something higher und better upon which to rest than its mere sweetness. Before the year is out. the '• happy pair" have, elan I too often found indillerenee stieo t-d lo this ull-oxaciutg. allimpatient pas-ion ; a consummation not easily to be avoided, 'mt perhaps to tic delayed. Many ingenious writers have tried their hands a' a d'tinition of love; may 1 not venture alter them I Love, in its commonest form. I lake to bo an enthusiasm with which the mind intensifies and dignifies its desires. I nhappily, 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, because the tuorul requirements are not responded to with the same facility as the physical. A hoc, whose roo...
The Young Czar. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856
The Young Czar. It is certain that in addressing the nobility nt Moscow bespoke of the dangers of serfage, and invited his nobility to think about the means of abolishing it. " You know," he said, " that I hate the institution of serfage, and I am sure you dislike it also. Let us, therefore, do our best for a slow ami steady change, for it is better to give freedom to the sens than to see them take it against our will." When the Kmpress-mother heard that the Ministers Kleinmichel and Czernitsheff had been dismissed, she rushed to the Czar nnd 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 geniur, and could ensilv 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 bis inferi...

How Hungary is Governed. The following is from a correspondent in Hungary, and gives a fearful insight us t&lt;&gt; how the Austrian! are acting in thut unlortunate country : —'• On the 2Hth of last month an agent of Kossuth, who had beeu for some months in prison, was hanged at Pesth. This was done so quietly that I only' found one panel 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, i-as bad towards unhappy Hungary as that of the King of Naples is towards that wretched country. Hungary is treat, .1 as a conquered country, pillaged and insulted. Soldiers are sent into the villages, who are quartered on all the inhabitants, except on the nobles who are in lhe employment of the Kmperor. They insult the people, they break all the furniture, and throw out of window anything tbey do not think rood enough for them.' The j tu\es...

For some time past, says the Glasgow (Scotland) Pott, the managers of'the Glasgow and Ren frew Railway have been greatly annoyed by the mysterious disappearance of portions of merchandise, solid and lititiid, intrusted to their care for conveyance to and from the royal burgh. This was particularly the case with the spirits which were carried up ami down the line, and the abstraction of a few bottles of the •' barley-bree" from the puncheons was of almost daily occurrence. Kvery possible manu-uvre to entrap "the mysterious spiritstealers was tried in vain, and the manager, Mr. Congleton. was almost on the point of des|&gt;airing. when he hit upon the following plan of detecting the guilty persons. Having provided himsell with a good telescope, he placed himself in such a position iv the station-house as to command a view of a large portion of the line. A traiu laden with barrels was on its way to Renfrew, and when a good way down, Mr. Congleto...

A Master Den). A thought that will clear up many puzzles is like a key that w ill unlock many doors. .Such a thought is one. which we shall suggest. But tirst, 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 New York l How is if that such outrageous political newspaper attacks —we make no individual charge— an made and permitted by Mibsctjfcem? How is it that great and abound ? How is it that assaults and imiroHpfor expression of opinion multiply and go nnwlnßot justice ?
