Vote for the People's Ticket [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856

Vote for the People's Ticket For the first time in onr city's political history we have a ticket presented for onr suffrages which is really and thorongly a reform one, which is 'the 1 offspring of no cliqne or party, and which maintains a position—almost unprecedented in movements directed against partizan organizations—that renders its success almost a moral certainty. The same overwhelming popular majority which formed the Vigilance Committee and carried out its work ns triumphantly as bloodlessly, is now determined on perpetuating the results of that victory in the appropriate legal and constitutional manner. Law and the Constitution have been lifted from the earth to which misdocrs had trampled them, and we are now called upon to choose Individuals to administer both who shall not by their conduct viofate or degrade cither. A nobler motive than the elevation of any party hack to office stimulates those engaged in this movement, a higher zeal than that born of a hojie for direct...

A Bloodless Revolution. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856

A Bloodless Revolution. The sun that rises on the morning of the fourth of Xovember, and passes over the continent that separates tha two great oceans ot" ihe earth, witnesses, in its westwartl career from sea to sea. a spectacle such as it never made visibls with its rays in all the records of uneient history. Twenty millions of freemen on that day accomplish a work such as could not have been achieved at any other [icriod unaccompanied by the clash of arms, the flow of blood, the wail of the widow and fatherless. Silently and imperceptibly the rule of a mighty nation passes away from the hands that have for four years held its trusts and exercised its paster : peacefully and with perfect order a monarch is deposed and another placed in his stead, none dreaming of resistance, none needing to exercise physical force. It is a sublime sjK'ctacle, this reg-ularly-recurring republican revolution, a picture the philosopher and statesman may well pause to contemplate ami admire. The sword...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856

Not many months ago, an assemblage gathered in our Plaza, claiming to be brought together by a reverence for law and a respect for order, which those thus convoked asserted had been forgotten and abandoned by the mnjority of our community. Politicians raved and lawyers screamed to a crowd composed of cheering adherents and scoffing opponents. One there was among that number whom feture bad gifted with the rare union of qualities Bit enabled him to conceive exalted thoughts and 'fjrve tlaun appropriate utterance. On his prostiteAstjflßeje noble capabilities the people frowned, atfi asjajaeh was drowned in the indignant cknHT'%sWafls>atr egntempt for the one guilty of such deseeretioa. "With an audacity paralleled only by that or Me isf|lill eilt)aftlffirsled in his insulting utterances, and blasphemously appeal to the national flag as it rose above his head, floating in tbe free winds of heaven. Down on that head, in folds suddenly motionless, the sacred ensign fell, as if...

A Candidate who is a Man. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856

A Candidate who is a Man. We have a great admiration for a man, a wholesouled, deception-hating, plain-spoken man, and when such a miracle occurs as the nomination of such a one for office, we cannot refrain from expressing onr gratification at the introduction of such a purifying element into tbe mepbitic atmosphere of politics. The address of Mr. James O'Sullivan to the voters of Tuolumne county is a production which does him honor and is a fit accompaniment to the acts of his previous history. We hope he will be elected, lor although he is a party candidate, he is governed by principlt* which are above those of party, and which will prevent his ever submitting to purtizan dictation. Il is hardly probable that he will be sucivs-ful. but to him defeat will be no disgrace, lie will be a worthy member nf society in whatever sphere af life may be his destiny. We quote thee lulling portion of his address i which he published in the Sonora Hcraltl) as an indication of his ninnlv. indepe...

We Are to Have a Thanksgiving. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856

We Are to Have a Thanksgiving. It having been pretty well ascertained that the community would not be cheated out of their opportunity of observing this time-honored holiday by Kxecutive neglect, it is at last announced semiofficially, that we arc to be permitted to be thankful on a day designated in a gubernatorial proclamation. 'I he reason assigned lor the Governor's delay in is-uiug his manifesto is that he desired to first learn the day likely to be generally observed at the Kast, and appoint the same one for this Slate. This Is very plausible and were it a statement made over the gubernatorial signature, we would not take the liberty of doubting it, but it appears a little singular that, if such a consideration has influenced the Governor, it was not put forward in his defence long since; and we arc rather inclined to think that the making public of the fuct that in the event of the Governor's failing to perform his duty, Bishop Kip would appoint a day of Thanksgiving for memb...

Straining at Gnats and Swallowing Camels. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856

Straining at Gnats and Swallowing Camels. The hesitancy or the Postmaster aud the agents of the Pacific Mail Steamship Co.. in granting the request of a large iMitSher of citizens that the departure of the steamer should be delayed a day iv consequence of the occurrence of the election on the same date with that in which the necessary business immediately prior to the departure of the mails is transacted, is worthy of the most astute of '• Virginia abstractionists." No one believes that any risk would be run by either the Postmaster or the Mail Company's agents in acceding to the postponement requested. The strict construction of the mail contract thus suddenly adopted as a rule of action on their part, is decidedly amusing to any one who has witnessed the manner in which the departures of the mail steamers have been regulated for years. Were any personal ends to be attained by either Postmaster or agents in the postponement, we doubt if their scruples would hinder their being attai...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856

Day after to-morrow is the day in which we accomplish the regular quadrennial salvation of the federal Union, and it is fair to predict from the results of previous experiments in that line that the popular triumph will be • complete one, and that our existence as a nation for the next four years will then be gnarrantiedl We are credulous enough to believe all that the partisan presses assert will result from the election sf their respective candidates, and are therefore- sfteptieal regarding the disasters which each insists will follow the success of their opponents. We believe that either Buchanan, Fillmore, or Fremont, is quite competent to save the Union, simply Because we do not admit that they, or the varieas political bodies they represent, have any power to do otherwise. The people arc content with the Union as it is, and are quite willing that any of the Presidential puppets who are put forward as its saviors, shall have the credit of being such, so long as tbe great end is...

A Correction. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856

A Correction. Tlie True Californtan, in one of its issues last week, published the following paragraph : Correction.—We are authorized and requested, by a member of Ibe People's Committee, to state lhat the piilvlication of the Legislative Ticket — recently formally withdrawn by lhat body—in the Wide West of Sunday last, was made without their knuwledge or consent. The inference likely to be drawn from the above is, that the ticket as published in our columns was anuounccd by the authority of th; People's Committee. No such announcement was made. The ticket was published as an advertisement, and attention called to it as one of the political movements of the day—nothing more. We do not desire to occupy a false position in the mutter, and *s we have no doubt the injustice done us in the foregoing was undesigned, we trust our cotemporary will be prompt to make the necessary correction. Beautiful Feature of our Society—That at the tap of the fire-bell, (in four cases out of six a false...

CITY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856

CITY NEWS. Exhibition, or the Union; Grammar School.—This interesting festival took place at Musical Hall on Thursday evening, nnd a large andierce were in attendance. The exhibition passed off very creditably to both pupils and teachers. The declamations were well given, although, as a general thing, sufficient attention did not appeor to have been given to the gestures accompanying the oratorical efforts. Easy nnd natural action gives eloquence an additional grace. The original compositions by some of the pupils were well written and skilfully delivered. The charm of the evening's entertainment, however, was the singing. Sweeter voices tban filled the Hall on the evening of the exhibition, it has seldom been our lot to listen to. Some slight deficiencies m execution were manifest to an acute car, but these might have been in some degree the result of diffidence on the part »f tlie young ladies performing. We do not desire to make any especial mention of individuals, where all were...

THE WEEK'S AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856

THE WEEK'S AMUSEMENTS. Mrtroi-outan Thutre.-Mrs. Julia Dean Hay or haa been playing through the week to houses somewhat thinner in attendance than previously, owing, probably, to the prevailing polite al excitement. In the tirst part of the week she appeared as Camille, in [nirtiotis of which she displayed a gnat deal of artisiir skill, and in others fell far short of excellence. She is not successful iv attaining thai complete idcntitication of the actress with the part which o list lutes the most isrrfcct dramatic |M»rsonatioti. During tbe week she has appeared in several other plays, among which were tiri."'nlit and rwaxi . the prtncioal characters in which she rendered with skill, sad was creditably sustained by Mr. Pope and jNirtiona of the stock company.

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856

NEWS OF THE WEEK. The Aortl, ra/;/.,r,,i„n gives the following picture of afTturs in its vicinity:-" The good old times of '49 seem to be reviving in this portion of Ilutte Co. Oroville, during the last year, has passed through the various phases of society peculiar to the mines in '49-'6O and Til years not remarkable for a display of moral or intellectual excellence, but eminently favorable to the development of muscle. Our sister village, Spanishtown, seems to be following onr pious example, only more so. About a week since a man was killed there, and last Sunday night, according to all accounts, they must have had a very lively time. It seems there existed a feud between the Cbilenos and Peruvians, growing out nf gambling ami other exemplary occupations, which broke out in a general light with knives and pistols, which lasted nearly all night—two Peruvians were killed, two more mortally wounded and two or three others, inclsding oue woman, severely wounded. The day following, tbe...

aUESTIONB AND ANSWERS. j Qarsao.—" Who was Messalinaf" The Isllowvrig ft a short sketch of her history:—"This notorious Koman Empress, the daughter of 1 Messala HarbatuH wife to the Emperor Claudius, has left behind her the infamy of having surpassed in licentiousness the most abandoned women of any age. She had All the males belonging to the household of tbe Emperor for her lovers; officers, slaves, soldiers, players—nothing wss too low for her. Not satisfied with hri- own shame, she even compelled the most noble Itciuun ladies tv commit in her presence similar excesses; whosoever did not comply with her wishes ibe ptafclshed with death. She at length went so far as, during the lifetime of her husband, publicly to marry Cams Sdius, a senator. — Narcissus, a frecdman and favorite of the Emperor, formerly a paramour of the Empress, discovered to Claudius, who was then absent from Borne, this new act of infamy on the part of Messnlina.
