A DETECTIVE'S IXPEHIESCB. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 April 1869

A DETECTIVE'S IXPEHIESCB. JPtfvwtfti Toe Bii#**ii»V^ppr A low, vine-olad cottage, with green creepers shading the doorway. A young Sri peered from the tangled foliage out into e darkness; the young face wore an anxious look, and the eyes were sad with sorrow. The bright golden curls were thrown back and a little white band was lifted to the ear as if to catch the first echo of a footstep. The light from the room flashed over the sunny tresses that shone in the glare like a golden crown. Suddenly the-report of a pistol rent the air, and a man staggered and fell at her feet The noise of the street had long died out The busy city was sunk to rest; the wild fever that had burned along its artejies had ceased; in that secluded spot po sound was heard, save the pistol shot and the death rattle as the victim's pallid fees was raised appealingly. " These were the facts as they were related to Mr. I— and myself," said Mr. F—, " an hour afterwards." The head of the dead man was pillow...

IX —A crusty old bachelor says he thinks nt is woman, and not her wrongs, that ought to be redressed. —What would the world bo without a woman? A perfect blank—like a sheet of paper—not even ruled. —Why do girls kiss each other and men not? Because girls have nothing better to kiss, but the men have. —"We're in a pickle now," said a man in a crowd. "A regular jam," said another. "Heaven preserve us," mourned an old lady. —"I expect," said a young physician, on his way to Jamaica, on hearing exaggerated rumors of the cholera, "to witness a great many death bed scenes this summer." "Doubtless," replied a friend, "if you get much practice." —Aunt Betsy was trying to persuade little Jack to retire at sunset, using for an argument that all little chickens went to rest at that time. "Tea,'' said little Jack, "but the old hen always goes with them." Aunty tried no more arguments...

AX EXALTLNG HUSBAKD [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 23 April 1869

AX EXALTLNG HUSBAKD Wychcrly, the comedian, married a girl of eighteen when he was verging on eighty. Shortly after, Providence was pleased in His mercy to the young woman, to call the old man to another aud better world. Put ere he took his final departure from this, he summoned his young wife to his bedside and announced to her he was dying, whereupon she wept bitterly. Wychcrly lifted himself up in the bed, and gazing with tender emotion on his weeping wife, said: "My dearest love, I have a solemn promise to exact from you before I quit your side forever here below. Will you assure me my wishes will be attended to by you, however great the sacrifice you will be called on to make? " Horrid ideas of suttees, of poor Indian widows being called on to expire on funeral Pyres, with the bodies of their deceased lords and masters, dashed across the brain of the poor woman. With a convulsive effort and a desperate resolution she gasped out an assurance that his commands, however d...

GOT NO FRIEND [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 23 April 1869

GOT NO FRIEND We were traveling through Canada, in the winter of 1839, and after a long day's ride, stopped at the Lion Inn, and the contents of the stage, numbering nine persons, soon gathered round the cheerful tire. Among the occupants of the room, we observed an ill-looking cur, who had shown his wit by taking up his quarters in so comfortable an apartment. After a few minutes the landlord entered, and, observing the specimen of the canine species, remarked. "Fine dog that! Is he yours, sir?" appealing to one of the passenger*. "No, sir." "Beautiful dog! Yours sir?" addressing himself to a second. "No," was the blunt reply. "Come here, pup! Perhaps he is yours, sir?" "No," was the reply. "Very sagacious animal! Belongs to you, I suppose, sir?" "No he doesn't ," was the reply. "Then he is yours, and you have a treasure," throwing theanimal a cracker. "Nothing of the kind." "Oh!"— " with a smile—"he belongs to you, as a matter of course?'1 addressing himself to the last pass...

WIDOWHOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 23 April 1869

WIDOWHOOD. jfactnj. i. A maiden is merely a pushing young tiling, Who can waltz, play ilnets, even possibly sing A green UUlo tool, either awkward or pert, Who has learned lots of nonsense, but not how to Hirt. She's pretty to look at, but don't let Iierspc.ik; If you make an allusion, she'll fancy it's Creek, And when you are wise will just give her a cursory Glance, and regret that she's come front the nursery. II. A wife is a slave, you may say what you will, But 'tis bitter to swallow the conjugal pill : Ami the girl uninstrncteil, is always a martyr, For every man is by nature a Tartar. Imagine her, fresh from the boarding-school, rich in The science of bills and the art of the kitchen! For men, you'll observe, are such gluttonous sinners, They're as savage as bears if they don't get good dinners. III. BAa.Widow—joung, pretty, and-witty—with 9*&oney—¦^^Hfra few years over twenty !

"Kutonah!" shouted the brakeiaau, opening the car door as the train stopped before a pleasant littjk? station on the Ilar-j left "Railroad. * * "* I do not know as I should have particularl y noticed that we stopped at all , for I had been napping it for some miles; but just as I was casting an inquiring, sleepy look out of the window, and settling myself for another siesta, my attention was attracted by the entrance of a young lady, a way passenger, who perceiving the car well tilled, paused before ine in evident embarrassment. I scarcely wish the reader to infer from this that there were no vacant seats; on the contrary, the chair I occupied, was selfishly monopolized by my shawl and valise which had excluded many an applicant, and so the moment I observed the car door opened, I mentally resolved not to budge an inch; but a glance at the new comer changed my mind. She was a young lady of exceeding beauty, dressed i...

THE INSANE. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 23 April 1869

THE INSANE. The Legislature of Pennsylvania has passed an important law relative to the admission of the insane into asylums. Under it the certificate of two physicians, who must swear to the facts contained in jt, and whose character must he vouched for by the magistrate before whom they testify, is necessary to place any person in an asylum for the insane. It is also made a misdemeanor, under this act, to prevent a patient corresponding with his or her counsel, and any judge is obliged to issue a writ of Uetbeua corpus , on the complaint of any citizen, that a person is improperly restrained of his liberty by the keeper of an insane hospital. There are other provisions of great utility aud public importance in the new law, which provides that an officer or a physician of a hospital for the insane, who fulfils the requirements of the act, shall not be liable to damages at the suit of a patient.
