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

Vote for the People's Ticket. For the first time in our city's political history we have a ticket presented for our suffrages which is really and thorougly a reform one, which is the' offspring of no clique or party, and which maintains a position—almost unprecedented in movements directed against partizan organizations—that renders its success almost a moral certainty. Tlie same overwhelming popular majority which formed the Vigilance Committee and carried out its work as triumphantly as bloodlcssly, 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 \\fxm to choose individuals to administer both who shall not by their conduct violate 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 ho]>...

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

A Bloodless Revelation. The sun that rises EE the morning of the fourth of November, and passes over the continent that separates tho two great oceans of the earth, witnesses, in its westward career from sea to sea. a spectacle such as it never made vi.-ilil» with its rays in all the records of am ient history. Twenty millions of freemen on lhat day accomplish a work such as could not have been achieved at any other period unaccompanied by the dash of arms, the How 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 trosts anil exercised its potter; peacefully and with perfect order a monarch is deposed und another placed in his stead, none dreaming ol resistance, none needing to exercise physical force. It is a sublime s|iectaclc, this reg-ularly-recurring republican revolatioa, a picture the philosopher and statesman may well paMB to contemplate and admire. The sword is ...

M. Baker 1 Mr—lnn a San Francisco Audience. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856

M. Baker 1 Mr—lnn a San Francisco Audience. 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 majority 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 gfeture had gifted with the rare union of qualities that enabled him to conceive exalted thoughts and give them appropriate utterance. On his prostililliilll jjfftwi noble capabilities the people frowned, ami Mi spaeeh was drowned in the indignant clamor bortj of their contempt for the one guilty of such desecration. With au audacity paralleled only by that of hb in his insulting utterances, and even da/ci *> blasphemously appeal to the national flag as it rose above his head, floating in the free winds of heaven. Down on that head, in folds suddenly mot...

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 fmni e\ pressing our gratification at the introduction of such a purifying element into the mephitic umw» phere of politics, 'lhe nddross of Mr. .latnos D'Sullivati to the voters of Tuolumne count v is a production which does him honor and is a fit BO conipuniment to the acts ~| his previous hi-torv. We hope he w ill Ik- elected, (or although mt t- a party candidate, he is governed by principles which arc aliove those of party, und which will prevent his ever sul,mining to partizan dietution. It is hardly probable that he will mt MeOSMIU, hut to him defeat will he no disgrace. He will b« a worthy memlM r of society in whatever sphere of life may In- his destiny.

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 lie cheated out of their opportunity of observing this time-honored holiday by Kxeeutive neglect, it is at last announced semiofficially, that we are to be permitted to lie thankful on a day designated in a gubernatorial proclamation. 'I he reason assigned lor the Covernor's delay in is-uing his manifesto is lhat he desired to first learn the day likely to be generally observed at the Kast. and appoint the same one for this State. Thai *s very plausible and were it a statement made over the gubernatorial signature, we would not take the liberty of doubting it, but it apjiears a little singular that, if such a consideration has influenced the (iovernor, it was not put forward in his defence long since; and we are rather inclined to think tbat the making public of the fact that in the event of the Governors failing to perform his duty.

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

Straining at Gnats and Swallowing Camels. The hesitancy of tho Postmaster ami the agents of the Pacific Mail Steamship Co., in granting the request of a large number of citizens that the departure of the steamer should be delayed a day in consequence of the occurrence of the election on the same date with that in which the nt-cessary 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 cither 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 attain...

The Jfleetfcn. Day after to-morrow is the *vy in which we accomplish the regular quadrcßtiinl 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 a complete one, and that our existence as a nation for the next four years will then be guarrontierJ- We are credulous enough to believe all tbat ihe partiaan presses assert will result from the election el t*ei> respective candidates, and are therefore siteptisal regarding the disasters which each insists will follow the success of their opponents. We believe that either Buchannn, Fillmore, or Fremorft, is quite conipetent to save the Union, simply Because we do not admit that they, or the various political bodies they represent, have any power to do otherwise. The people arc content with tbe 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...

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

A Correction. The TV ur Cnhfornum, in one of its issues last week, published Ihe following paragraph : Cnalacilua.—W« are authorized and rocpiestod, by a member of Ihe People's Committee, to state that the publication of the Legislative Ticket — recently forinaltv withdrawn by lhat body -in the 117,/. >f "of Xundav last, was made without "their knowledge or consent. The inference likely to be drawn from the above is, that the ticket as published in our columns was announced by the authority of tbj People's Committee. Xo 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 matter, and as we have no doubt the iujustice 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...

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

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

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

NEWS OF THE WEEK. The North Gilifnrmnn gives the following picture of affairs in its vicinity :—" Tbe 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 '4'J-'6O and '51, years not reinarknbte for a display of moral or intellectual excellence, but eminently favorable to the development of muscle. Our sister village, Spanishtow n, 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 tbe Cbilenos and Peruvians, growing out of gambling and other exemplary occupations, which broke out in a general fight with knives and pistols, which lasted nearly all night— two Peruvians were killed, two more mortally wounded nnd two or three others, including one woman, severely wounded.

She hud All ttie males belonging to the household of the Emperor for her lovers; officers, slaves, soldiers, players—nothing was too low for her. Not satisfied with bet own shame, she even compelled the most noble Rcmna ladies to commit in her presence similar excesses; whosoever did not comply with her wishes sK- punished with death. She at length went so Fat as, during the lifetime of her husband, publicly to marry Caius Silius, a senator. — Narcissus, a fVecdman and favorite of the Emperor, formerlr a paramour of the Empress, discovered to Claudius, who was then absent from Rome, this new act of infamy on the part of Messalio*.
