Letter trom Nevada County. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 13 March 1868
Letter trom Nevada County. Mcd Hill, March 8, 1868. Dear Children :—A little more than fifty years ago two cousins were born in Accomac county, Virginia. The mother iof one died, and left her little son to the icare of his grandmother before he was old I enough to feel his loss; while the other j lad, at eight years of age, stood by the jgiave of a father, determined that he would care for his mother, and never see ! her want if he could help it. ' J These cousins lived seven miles apart, j Every Saturday that distance was travel.led over by one or other of those boys, for dearly they loved each other, and on Sunjday, when one would return home, the 1 j other would go half the distance with him, i and they never parted without tears. In warm weather these journeys were made with bare feet, and I have heard one of j these cousins (who is now an old man, 54 [years of age) say that he has wept over i the foot-priuta of his little friend, and laid j sticks around them to preserve them e...

From the Sacramento Daily Union's Report of the Proceedings of ihe Assembly. Porter in the Rear. The House took up messages from the Senate. Senate amendment to Assembly Resolution No. 9, relative to Rear Porter, (substituting the name of Bartlitt Kavauagh for that of Whitaker) was taken up and discussed at length. Mr. Warfield said Whitaker was a Mississippi Democrat, of African descent, while Kavanagh was a white abolition negro-hater, and at the last election de- 1 feated the Democratic candidate for Sheriff in Sacramento county. Mr. Biggs said he would vote for Kavanagh, on the ground that he considered a white man as good as a negro if he behaved himself. Mr. Brown, of Tulare, advocated Whitaker, because the occupation was particuarly suited to a negro, and besides, Whitaker had endured persecution heretofore for his Democratic principles. Mr. Westmoreland said he clearly foresaw, that if this discussion continued it would create a breach in the Democratic party. He therefore m...

LINES To the Memory of Adam B. Smith, Jr. By Annie E. Dteb. Farewell, dear friend ! thou hast left us, Left us in this world alone ; Hut the will of our dear Saviour Shall in earth and heaven be done. And the door at which you entered, You have passed already through, And in that ceiestial city, Heaven opens to your view. Yes, we miss you—oh! how greatly None but those on earth can tell, And if we still continue faithful, We with you in heaven may dwell. Now, one word to the Brannan Guards — Our brave boys dressed in blue : May the death of your young comrade Be a warning unto you. But let me to the worldly say, Now is the time that we should pray, And ask the Savior of mankind To purify and bless the mind. Farewell, dear friend, once more we say, Until we meet on Judgment Day, When we shall meet to part no more, On Canaan's bright and happy shore. An ingenious mechanic, in Bloomfield, Connecticut, has made a " Mosaic fiddle " from one hundred and forty different pieces of wood, and...
