The Probable Remlt of the Presidential Section. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 16 November 1856
The Probable Remlt of the Presidential Section. The news by the mail steamer has spread exultation among the Democratic rank*, and on the evening of her arrival tbey brought out the big gun and shook the city with reverberations of joy. The gladness manifested was the more exuberant as the Republicans had claimed Pennsylvania by a large majority; and it was well understood that in that State and Indiana the battle must be fought —that ii both were lost to Fremont he was defeated. All the indications now manifest in the political atmosphere jKiint to the election of Buchanan as an event extremely probable, and his friends here appear to regard it as a moral certainty. The majority against the Republicans in either of the State* named is not so large but that it might readily be reversed at the Presidential election, as has been the case in several previous instances, but the moral effect of these successes on their opponents, cannot but tell heavily against the Republicans in other s...
W. Carroll's Lecture. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 16 November 1856
W. Carroll's Lecture. We have received from its author a copy of a Lecture on " Dr. Scott, the Vigilance Committee, and the Church." The book is well printed and neatly got up in pamphlet form, which is, in our opinion, a full classification of its merits, for we have been able to find none in its perusal. The title would have been more complete had the name of" W. Carroll" been introduced among the subjects of the lecture, for he receives in it a good share of attention, as well as a brief puff in the Appendix, under the head " B." The lecture is so diffuse, rambling, aud void of merit, either in style or the quality of the thoughts expressed, that to give it an extended review would but be a task irksome to ourselves and unjust to our readers. In plain English, it is simply trash. As a matter of curiosity, however, we would like to have the author's authority for the assertion contained in the last sentence of the following extract: " I deem Mr. Scott »n injured m»n. He is a great...

THE WEEK'S AMUSEMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 16 November 1856
THE WEEK'S AMUSEMENTS Amain* Theatrr. —Misa I'mrnl'i performance* at this plan- of amusement bare attracted crowded bouses through the "itk, and would doubtless continue to do ao were the engagement of that lady extended. The lat-lrau commemorative of Jamea King of William, haa been produced every evening, and received with marks of aatiafacUun. Uu Friday evening, another, witb the mmfmrn Napoleon aa ita hero, waa produced, and Miaa Provoat tang the IfarttillaiM, a performance to which her vocal capability doea not enable ber to do full justice. No novelties worthy of especial remark have been presented. MrraoroLm* Truths.—A panorama, purporting to depict scenes occurring during the operations of tbe Vigilance Committee, was eihibitrd at this theatre during a portion of the week. It did not succeed t\ir the simple reason that it did not deserve success. The paintings were neither accurately nor artistically executed. And the drowsy, ineffective manner in which tbey were accompanied ...

New Publications. We have received from the author, Mr. J. Ross Hrowne, a copy of" Yu«cf, or tho Jonmey of the Frangi ; a Crusade in the Fast." It is an interesting narrative of Kastcrn travel nnd will well repay perusal. Its typographical appearance is creditable, and it is handsomely illustrated. The Harpers are its publishers. We arc also in receipt of the November number of Hutchings's California Magazine. It contains a number of well executed illustrations, and a variety ol original and selected reading matter. From Dig &amp; Kdwards, New York, we have received Putnam's Monthly for November. It is an excellent number, and well sustains the reputation earned by those whose issue preceded it. From the same publishers we have also received the November number of their monthly issue of Dickens's Household Words. Although it is seldom that anything from the pen of its gifted editor appears in the pages of this periodical, the talent evinced in its contents places it at the h...
NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 16 November 1856
NEWS OF THE WEEK. The Pacific mail steamship Golden Gate arrived on Friday, Nov. 14, with 826 passengers, bringing intelligence from the Eastern States to Oct. 20th. The Pennsylvania State election had resulted in favor of the Democrats, but it is charged that enormous frauds had been resorted to in the city of Philadelphia, where a vote exceeding all precedent had been polled—one which, if legal, would indicate a populatinn of 600,000. The Indiana election is still in doubt, but it is believed to have resulted in favor of the Democrats. In the ten States that have voted for members of tbe House of Representatives this year the Democrats have gained forty-two Congressmen. C. P. Duane and W. Mulligan had brought suits in New York against members of the Vigilance Committee, claiming heavy damages. Another political riot had occurred in Baltimore, during the election for Mayor and Councilmen. The Supreme Court of New York, in the Accessory Transit Co. suit, had rendered a decision refu...
GENERAL GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 16 November 1856
GENERAL GOSSIP. * * An exchange, describing a nnrsery of fruits and flowers at Rochester, N- V., claimed to be the most extensive in the world, says :—" Their ornamental department, is on a very large scale They have five hundred feet in length of glass propagating houses —seven acres 111 roses—and abont half an acre densely planted with dahlias. They have a very rare collection of the celebrated new California tree, the Wellingtonia gigantea, being no less than five thousand fine yonng plants of this tree, grown from seed collected in California, and which were procured by gathering such as the squirrels had thrown down in their depredations. A year ago these plants sold for a guinea each—at only one dollar now ; here was a space of twenty feet square worth a valuable farm." * * A ventilating India rubber overshoe has been invented in New York. Uy this improvement the unhealthiness and unpleasantness arising from the use of rubbers is entirely obviated. The inner surface of the rub...

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS, Dos Aminos.—" Is Lingard's History of Kngland generally considered the most reliable f If not, what is?" —For a general reader, almost any history of England is sufficiently reliable. To a student or literary man, accuracy in point of details is more necessary. Wa should consider Dr. Lingard's History sUlHciently reliable for your perusal, but as it was written some littv years ago, it must be regarded as inferior to those of recent date, so far as the opinions and views incident to its narration are concerned. Macaulay, and the author of the History published by the Society for the Advancement of Knowledge, (republished by the Harpers,) view history Iron* the same stand-point as the reaatr— from the present timc-and for that reason we regard their works as more worthy the general perusal vi Ihe reliability of Lingard's history you may judge rrom the following remarks made by a competent .minority in literature:-" Although the object of tins work , the vindica...

FUN, PACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 16 November 1856
FUN, PACT AND FANCY. Curious Freak of Silkworms.—A singular circumstance is said to have occurred in the silk factory of M. tiaribaldi, at Cremona. It is positively' stated that, in that factory, a number of silkworms, instead of forming the cocoon, as usual, actually wove a kind of silk ribbon, of the breadth of an inch, and the length of upwards of twelve feet. In the course of the inquiries made in this matter, it has been elicited that a similar phenomenon, only on a much larger scale, took place at Alessandria in 1836, in the silk factory of Dr. Grillo, where the silkworms wove a ribbon two inches broad and upwards of sixty feet long, part of which is now preserved in the Museum of Statural History at Turin. Lately, at a distribution of prizes in a German village, a little girl, seven years old, whose parents had just been turned out of their lodgings, because they had failed to pay their rent, waa asked by the rector : " Have you studied Sacred History, my child ?" " Yes, sir....

Physical and Mental Debility. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 16 November 1856
Physical and Mental Debility. the United States are so many examples of physical and mental decay to be met with as in California, where dissipation runs riot. The true reason, it seems to us, lays in the personal neglect of health, which soon, in our climate, becomes a confirmed habit. Nothing is so dangerous, and with a view of checking this great evil, we would call especial attention to the advertisement of Dr. J. L. Cxapkav, iv another column of this paper. Unlike the majority of advertising physicians— who are generally empirics—Dr. Csapkay is a gentleman of rare scientific and medical attainments, having held the dis tinguished position of chief surgeon in the Hungarian army, and possesses all the necessary requisites for the successful prosecution of his profession. To his care and advice we would especially commend all suffering from sexual or private diseases, which Iraich of medicine he has made his exclusive practice, feeling assured that in all such complaints, whether ...
