The Magic Mirror. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 4 January 1856

The Magic Mirror. REGINALD VERNON. Towards tlie close of the evening, on a fine autumn day. and just as the shades of night were beginning to enwrap the city of Florence. Cornelius Agrippa heard a slight tap at his door, and saw a stranger enter the room where he sat studying. Although the stranger's figure was good, and his eountenanee gentle and dignified, there was some thing {indefinably mysterious about him. that inspired a decree of fear and repulsion. It would have been difficult to guess his years, as the attributes of youth were strangely blended in his whole person with the characteristics of age. Thus, though not a wrinkle furrowed his brow, and though his black eyes were beaming with brilliancy. liis form appeared bowed down by the weight of years: his thick and abundant locks were almost white, and his touching and melodious voice was weak and quavering. He wore the Florentine cost nine, though he carried a pilgrim's staff, and his waist was girt by a broad silk sash, o...

Irish Carmen. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 4 January 1856

Irish Carmen. When a Dublin carman is summoned by a police constable, he almost invariably meets the accusation by a direct contradiction, and generally offers to swear to bis statement. If he is called upon to auswer lor being shabbily dressed, aud dirty in his apparel, he buys or borrows a good suit of clothes, shaves, and puts on a clean shirt, and then states boldly to the magistrate that he was just in the same state when " the )>oliccnmn wrote him." and that if he's * let to the book he'll swear to it." If he is summoned for being absent from his beast and vehicle, he insists thut he was " holding a lock of hay" to his horse all the time. If the complaint is for furious driving, the defence is set up that " the baste was dead lame, that it was just after taken up a nail, and was on three legs '• when he was wrote." If it is alleged that the horse was iv a wretched condition, and unlit to ply for public accommodation, he expresses his wonder that any fault should be ...

The Saw Dust Story. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 4 January 1856

The Saw Dust Story. A\ c said, yesterday, a man had told us in good faith that a quantity of pine saw dust in his doorvard was producing little pine trees. We did not'sav whether we relied upon his statement as being true, but we intended to remark that he was a very honest-looking man. This we forgot, and it is probably owing to a want of explicitness in this respect, that several are inclined to " eliminate certain inuendos" about our veracity. Last night we received a note containing the" laconic line: " Your sawdust pile. I guess, is a lie!" We assure our unknown correspondent that we have every reason to believe what he says—the sawdust pile certainly lies in the man's doorvard. Here is another epistle from an individual not so positive as the other, but more facetious : •• The statement contained in your paper of yesterday concerning the production of pine trees from sawdust, reminds me of a fact which I have not seen in print. About six weeks ago. I deposited two cart loads o...

Love the Light of Education. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 4 January 1856

Love the Light of Education. i hum i can safely say that I never met with a person, possessing any individualisms, whose pres-encc-whose sphere-was life-giving, healthful and elevating, unless his or her intellect had beeu molded by love. Look around the circle of your own wpmence, and you can sustain this fact. Look at the rndden luces, you meet iv your daily walks, eloquent of hearty dislike for mental acquirements because of the coercion that dragged and drove them in school-days through sloughs of disgust, and over deserts of Weariness, to the gates of knowledge! Look at the musty libraries that are wa king our streets, whose wrinkled phizzes and pedantic manners tell of acquisition through only a hard ambition ! See this religious sectarian, who has earned doctrines till he has forgot a ife—who thinks that intellectual truths are salvation and that goodness is only for the ignorant! Examine the whole body at your leisure, and tell me what you think of education without love as ...

Dog, Wife and Husband. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 4 January 1856

Dog, Wife and Husband. " There is a man in our town who has a wife who owus a little dog, which has been the favorite of her heart since its birth. Her husband dislikes dorrs, particularly that one. and has frequently yet cautiously denounced the animal and entertained a sincere willingness to have it removed from its prominent place in the affections of his wife. He did not wish to kill it, and was afraid—as some husbauds are—to say, " I shall not permit that dog to make this hoiise his home any longer." So he thought a stratagetic course the wisest, and herefore the best, whereby to accomplish the , great purpose of his lile." Hardly had he arrived at this conclusion when n plan struck him square and he caught Mai adopted it before it could vanish. " I know what 111 do," he muttered, " I'll let the whelp follow me to-day and lose him —she won't know no better." Accordingly, Saturday morning, shortly subsequent to breakfast, he sliiv left his domicile, and taking the dog with hini,...

Indians in European Dress. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 4 January 1856

Indians in European Dress. As much as I like to see an Indian in his native dress or ornaments. lie it as scanty as |Hissiblc. equally funny and disfigured do they look when tbey put on Kuroiiean clothes. They frequently have no idea for what purpose and iv what order they ought to be worn. First a dress coat, ami then a wistcoat. then part of a shirt, or uwai.-t oat by itself, or a pair ol trousers, or three and four pairs of them at the same time, they do not care : and they admire a uniform most red. if possible, with gold or silver. I frequently saw Indians in the greatest heat with three pairs ,>f trousers, the upper ones pulled up as Ugh as they could gel them, the second pair rolhsd up to their kales, ami the undermost ten to their natural length, to let all men see what a splendid Wardrobe they called their own, and could afford. ( vaults tor garters, shirt collars point downwards, waistcoats buttoned behind, and other mistakes constantly occur : and. like childre...

The police made a descent in the night, lately, into a clandestine gambling place in the Rue Uriffuut. and arrested the keeper of it, a man calling himself l'nul, who hits already been condemned for beeping a gambling house ; they also seized all the furniture. A number of men and nine women were engaged in play when the police entered, and they all had to give their names and addresses. Eight of the women were young and pretty, and of the class called lorettes;' the ninth was an old lady of resectable ap)>caranco, and she was so ternlied at being found in such a place that she threw herself, with demonstrations of despair, at the feet of the officers, and entreated them not to .send her to prison. Some of the men were, as usual, professional sharpers, and the others dn]>es. The affair was conducted by the officers in a very ingenious manner. The police ageuts knocked several times at the door of the apartment w...

Setting a River on Fire. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 February 1856

Setting a River on Fire. Prof. Popper recently delivered a lecture in the Polytechnic Institute, London, before a large audience of mechanics, in which he remarked that the setting of the Thames on fire was no longer a joke, but a reality. By dashing a small bottle of sulphuric ether, with" a few particles of metal potassium, into a flat cistern, a bright flame was produced, which illuminated the whole place. He then laid down four plates of red-hot iron on four bricks, and one of his attendants walked over them barefooted without any injury. By wetting his lingers in ammonia, the Professor dipped them in a crucible of melted lead, and let the metal run off in the shape of bullets into a shallow cistern of water.

How the writer of the following could have imagined that he was acting in accordance with those stipulations in sending it to us for publication, we are at a loss to imagine, and we are slow to charge him with what certainly appears to have lioen his object—a desire to express certain views on an entirely foreign Subject, under the pretence of writing a ••spiritual" communication.

Physical Benefit of Sunday. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 February 1856

Physical Benefit of Sunday. The Sabbath is God's serial present to the working man. and one of its chief objects is to prolong his lite, and preserve efficient his working tone. In the vital system it acts like a compensation pond ; it replenishes the spirits the elasticity, and vigor, which the last six days have drained away. and supplies the force which is to fulfil the six days succeeding; and in the economy of existence, answers the same purpose as, in the economy of income, is answered by a savings bank. The frugal mail who puts aside a pound to-day, and another pound next month, and who in a quiet way is always putting by his stated pound from time to time, when be grows old and frail, gets not only the same pounds back again, but a good many more beside. And the conscientious man who husbands one day of existence every week, who instead of allowing the Sabbath to be trampled ou, and torn, in the hurry and scramble of life, treasures it devoutly up—the Lord of the Sabbath kee...
