THE COTTAGE MAIDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 4 January 1856

THE COTTAGE MAIDEN. BY MISS MARY B. BBLL. 111 a cottage on the moor. Sung a maiden blithe antl gay, Spinning iv ita shady door, While she trilled her cheerful lay ; To its woodbine's leafy crest Came a warbling herd of spring, There to build a tiny nesl, Where t might fold ita downy wing. As her flax the maiden drew. Oft she turned her blue eyes bright To the bird that hither flew, Fluttering in the morning's light; As the bird its nest did weave, Swift her busy wheel went round, While the woodbine's elust'ring leave* Danced beneath its joyous sound. Summer came ami still she f ung. Sung antl blithely turn d her wheel; As her gladsome music rung, From the bird's nest echoei steal; Tis the voice of nestlings there, Gaily now their echoes float, Vieiug with that maiden fair, Which -hall trill the sweetest note. Autumn stole the woodbine's leaf, Ting',l with hn«s vi golden dye, Kustjetl with a moan of erief, In the bird's nest shadows lie. Slowly n.iw the wheel goes round. While Ihe ma...

' lie is gone ! Selfish, inconstant man: [acapable of true love, he knows not the value of it. His pride revolts at being forced bah) marriage as a moan- of paying his debts, but he sees not the baseness of being false to the wife he gives up. and the one by taking whom he gains so much jvecuniary advantage. Never will he really love her. and he will be as untrue to her as to me. Proudly will I bear up under this overthrow of my hopes— none shall know the pang it costs me to seem so calm and passionless! None, did 1 say! Yes, one there is who will probe the secret workings of my soul—who will censure me severely for the determination I have confirmed in the I'rince. .But for the good father's encourage...

Hair-Breadth Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 4 January 1856

Hair-Breadth Adventure. One morning—and it waa a morning by him never afterwards to be forgotten —the subject of this anecdote left home and proceeded alone on a shooting excursion. I should scarcely, however, be justified in assorting that he went forth absolutely alone ; for two powerful tiger hounds followed at his heels. His favorite bloodhound howled long and plaintively lor permission to join the party, but his master was inexorable ; ho was tied up and left behind. Indeed, even the two dogs he took with him were more as companions, than from any idea he entertained that their services would be called into requisition. Had he expected danger it was not on them he would have relied, but on the noble animal w hose courage and fidelity he had so often proved, and who was now left at home. , Tho day passed over without any remarkable eneoiinter ; and Mr. A. was on his return home, his game-bag laden with leathered spoil, and a tine buck suspended front a projecting branch of a mar...

The Sea Serpent Explained. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 4 January 1856

The Sea Serpent Explained. Mr. Metcall, the pleasant author of " The O.vo nian in Norway," relates how he met with the sea serpent iv this manner :—" fasting my eyes lazily from this noble sight along the base of the stupendous barrier of limestone that girded that side ot the Fjord, which was in deep shadow, and as still 'as a mill-pond. I became aware that something was slowly moving along in the water close to the rocks, at the distance of some quarter of a mile from where I was. It was a black, slimy object, seemingly about sixty feet long, as well as I could judge. 1 could not see its whole shape at once, but only part of it. for it kept partially appearing - and disappearing as it glided along. It could not be a tish. for no tish would move in that manner ; nothing but a serpent would thus advance, contracting and expanding the muscles of its back. A few days afterwards, as I stood on the shore, to my great delight 1 saw him again. He was not jar out at sea, and was proceeding...

A Southern Governor in Providence. At a political meeting in Providence, previous to the election, a public speaker took occ-asion to contrast the true ami false -gentleman ot South Carolina- instancing in this connect.on the generous bearing of (iovernor Aiken in conducting Speaker Hanks to the chair, and the brutal assault of Preston S. Brooks upon Senator Sumner. After the meeting, he was greatly surprised to receive a note from (iovernor Aiken himself, stating that he had heard (he speech, aud soliciting the pleasure of a personal interview. The speaker had not imagined that Governor Aiken was within a thou sand miles of Providence. I'ndcr the circumstances, and to prevent misconstruction, he thought it more proper to retrain from the interview, and sent Governor Aiken a courteous note excusing himself. A very handsome letter was received in reply, expressing great satisfaction ft the whole tone aud tenor of all the speeches upon the occasion, and indicating a geueral concurrenc...

The President's Message and Acconpanying Documents. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 4 January 1856

The President's Message and Acconpanying Documents. The most important features of the intelligence received by the mail steamer are the President's Message and the Reports of the heads of the various departments of the government. The prominent topic discussed in the former is the Kansas question, and the course of the Administration in that particular is defended with vigor aud ability, while the principles of the Kansas-Nebraska Act are sustained. This gix-es somewhat of a partizan character to the Message, which has laid it opeu to severe censure from the presses which have supported the Republican candidate in the late canvass. The financial condition and prospect- ot the nation are prosperous beyond a parallel in our history, or that of any other great power of modem times. Our national debt has been materially reduced during the present administration, anil it could be greatly diminished in the coming year without inconvenience, if the bond-holders would consent to such speed...

A Literary Scoundrel. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 4 January 1856

A Literary Scoundrel. The individual who addressed the threatening letters to Mr. L. K. Ritter, over the signature of " L* Moine Noir," is employing his time during his incarceration in the City Prison in the composition of lyrical literature, and evinces a considerable amount of erudition and ability iv his efforts. It is not improbable that his course will have the designed effect of enlisting a mawkish sentiment in his behalf, aud that, even if he be convicted, an application will be made to the Executive for his pardon. We trust that these efforts, if made, will be unavailing. We have no sympathy with educated villainy. A well-trained man who has become a scoundrel is irreclaimable, and the law owes it to society to remove him from its midst as long as proper punishment for his misdeeds will allow. When ignorance is the cause of crime, the criminal is worthy of pity ; but wheu, in spite of advantages of training, a man chooses to pursue a vicious course of life, he is undeservin...

Letters from my Lodgings.---No. 6. I One Stokv Hoose on Ci.lT Struct Hil l, ) January 2, 1537. Mkssrs. Kditors : —I have long held the opinion that as it is the manifest destiny of the United States to absorb Mexico and Central America iv her national progress, so is it the duty of every individual intending to participate in the fruits of that absorption to render himscif familiar with the language now prevailing iv the localities which art? ultimately to be brought beneath the folds of the stripes aud stars. It is only lately that I hux'e attempted to carry out this project, the first step toward widely was the purchase of a second-hand copy of Ollendorff's Spanish Method at the Antediluvian Bookstore, (au establishment devoted to the cheap purchase and profitable sale of works of all descriptions.)

A Humiliating Record. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 4 January 1856

A Humiliating Record. The Insolvent Calendar for 1856, as published in the Evening Bulletin, presents a sad picture for the contemplation of those watching the progress of our State here or abroad. How much of disappointed hopes, blasted ambition, aud swerving from the path of rectitude, does that record present! How much of misery both in its debtor and creditor relations ! How great the need of charity in tracing the career of those whose names fill its space! It is a pity that in glancing over it we cannot tell where to bestow sympathy, to give or withhold censure. As a whole it merits our heartiest condemnation. No law which permits the extinguishment of sueb an amount of debt with so limited a display of assets, can be even approximately equitable in its operation, and another session of our legislature should not pass without amending it. The list contains a lesson for both debtor and creditor ; to the former iv teaching the avoidance of incurring pecuniary liability ; to the ...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 4 January 1856

NEWS OF THE WEEK. The news by the mail steamer John L. Stephens is without any importance or interest except such as is attached to the President's Message and the accompanying documents. The Message is mainly a labored defence of the course of the administration in the Kansas business. Nicaragua matters are slurred over, and very slight allusion made to the Pacific interests of the republic. The New Orunudian difficulties, growing out of the Panama massacre, are in process of adjustment. The financial condition uf the government is prosperous beyond a parallel, und a reduction of the taritf is recommended. The news from Nicaragua by this arrival is confirmatory of the disasters of Wulker. A meeting of Californians hud been held in New York with a view to the formation of au emigration society, but its results will not probably be greuter than those tf similar movements which have preceded it. • It appears that a number of the County Treasurers throughout the Statu have taken advant...
