Thoughts of Youth. — When the deadly quiet of evening is stealing around us, and the tumult of the world is hushed, the passions for acquiring gain are lulled to rest, 'tis sweet to commit the soul to its own contemplative wan derings: unencumbered by its mortal vestments, powerful in its own capacity it holds high converse with the invisible world. How tender are its musings, how beautiful its reveries, how delightful its communings with those beings who kept watch over the days of our boyhood, to recall the dreams of youth, its visions and hopes. We wander up the stream of life to its, source. This earth was made for youth, was fashioned for its spirits to revel in: in its splendors ever to delight.— The spirit of beauty haunts the young soul like the presence of gladness; Nature was our teacher then— free as the air of heaven she conducted us in our rovings, and poured fresh beauties in our soul, and in all our paths she strewed the emblems of virtue and wisdom, I hear the shouts...

Cold Spring Hospital. Dr J. S. TYSON has opened a hospital at the above named place, and is prepared to offor accommodation and medical attendance to the miners, or others, who may require his services. It is located midway of Bear and the North Fork of the American River, about twelve miles above Wadleigh's store at the Currell. The situation possesses rare advantages for the sick. It is high and remarkably healthful, overlooking a wide range of country, while the bracing mountain breeze, and a fine spring of nearly ice cold water will greatly contribute to the invalid who may become an inmate of the institution. To those who are unacquainted with the principal, he would state that he is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania of some twelve years' standing, during a great part of which time he has practiced medicine in Philadelphia and its vicinity, and has in his possession testimonials of the highest character from the Professors of different colleges.

Recent Exciting Events — The past two weeks have furnished more fearful tragedy and casualty, in different parts of the country, than we remember ever to have known in a similar space of time. The terrible Crevasse at New Orleans, threatening the destruction of that city—the Astor Place Riot, resulting in the death of more than twenty persons — the disaster on board the steamer Empire, with a loss of between twenty and thirty lives — the appearance of the Cholera in our city — the burning of a large portion of Watertown—the fire at Milwaukee—the terrible conflagration at St. Louis, burning over three hundred buildings and twenty steamers and destroying about twenty lives, with some dozen or twenty murders and suicides, form a tableau of disaster and death seldom recorded within two weeks. Add to these the Canada riots, and the picture challenges comparison. It is hard to say which will prove in the end the most fearful of the features of this picture. The loss of life at the Opera H...

Lamrut of the Irish Gold Hunter. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 25 August 1849

Lament of the Irish Gold Hunter. BY STEPHEN C. MASSETT. Tune — I'm sitting on the stile, Mary. I'm sitting on the stile, Mary, Away up in the mines, A looking out for lumps of gold, And pockets all I finds. But the lumps I find is precious small, And very few at that, And I feel that I have been, Mary, A most almighty flat. There's lots of change up here, Mary, Tho' you'll find none in me : For I spent the whole that I was worth In coming o'er the sea. And though they says you've only got To take your pan and pick, A pocket full of gold you'll find— It isn't quite so thick. I bless you for that nice hung beef You put into my trunk, For when I got it 'tween my teeth I felt that I was hunk: I bless you for the sausages That lasted me so long — Tho' I'm thankful they are gone, Mary, For they smelt a little strong. I'm very dirty now, Mary, For water's hard to get Unless it rains, and then you're sure Of getting pretty wet: For there are no umbrellas here, And the rain comes thro' the r...
