GENERAL GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 February 1856
GENERAL GOSSIP. * * The Journal of Commerce, in alluding to a report in circulation that the British Government had rewarded Mr. Henry Grinnell for his magnanimity in fitting out expeditions to the Arctic regions in search of Sir John Franklin, by giving the house with which he is connected large grain contracts, says as follows :" The ridiculous story has been going the rounds of the papers for some time, but we did not suppose it could be transferred to the columns of a New York paper. It has appeared in an evening paper. Mr. Henry Grinnell is not a member of the house of Grinnell, Minturn &amp; Co.. but keeps his office at the counting room of his son, Cornelius. The article does no justice to the great liberality of Henry Grinnell, whose expenditure was far beyond the amount named. This we publish wholly without his knowledge." * * It is said that a young lady in New York, who was engaged to be married to a gentleman, a resident of Long Island, some time since, but the j...
FUN, FACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 February 1856
FUN, FACT AND FANCY. A funny incident came under our notice the other day. While waiting our turn at the barber's a fellow '• poked his head in," and asked if they did curling there. He was answered in the affirmative when, stepping inside and calling after him a vil' lanons-looking cur, he pointed to it, saying «I would like to have you curl that dog's tail, then ' Nowise abashed at the burst of laughter which greeted him, the barber stepi&gt;ed forward and gave the dog a lusty kick, pointed to the - continuation" of the now yelping animal, tightly coiled lietween his hind legs, and demanded his quarter for the job. Doggy and his master left amid the yells of the excited bystanders, while the knight of the lather-brush unconcernedly called for the next customer. " Ferdinand tiie Seventh," says Rossini, " received me, smoking, in the presence of the Queen He was, in fact, smoking all day long. His outward man was not very prepossessing, nor even very clean.

THAT LITTLE HAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 February 1856
THAT LITTLE HAND. BY PAWL. ih ' well &lt;lo I rememlier still, that long, hot summer day, Ttvit antique sofa in whose nrros 1 stretched myself away; That laughing, black-eyed col. of mine who came with noiseless tread; That little hand placed on my brow to soothe my aching head. As evening winds were whispering to the day a purling sigh, 1 pressed that little hand in mine and looked a sad good-bye. The setting sun cast o'er her face a light that haunts ma yet; We parted then in silence, and we never since have met. Many a weary ache since then hath racked thill head of mine; Many a golden hope since then hath made its parting sign ; Yet many Joys have come since then from, out the glad Dreamland— tn fancy oft my brow since then hath relt that little hand. When beauty, with its tempting charms hath sought to cast its spell Around this heart, and banish thought of her I love so wellThen ever rose the vision of that long, hot summer day When on my brow with repliyr touch that h...
A Wife's Storn. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 February 1856
A Wife's Storn. IN SEVEN CHAPTERS. CHAPTER V. [CONTINUED.] I had been three years a wife before I became a mother. My first baby came to me with the early summer flowers. I date best by them, because afterwards many things overlaid such blessed anniversaries, and made it difficult for me to endeavor, and hard for me to dare, to remember when, in what hour, at what season, this or that happened. And yet I can even now bring present to my senses the delicious fragrance and delicate loveliness of the flowers my husband brought to me so often at that time. After the birth of my darling, there was a long interval during which I thought I was at peace; physical weakness made quiet aud stillness grateful, anil the new great joy seemed to fill and satisfy my soul. Again I smiled to myself as I had smiled—how long ago it seemed ! —looking out upon the lovely summer beauty of the land round llton. I lay still, with meek folded hands, and smiled into the face of my fair-pictured future, my bea...
Better Editions of the Bible Wanted. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 February 1856
Better Editions of the Bible Wanted. The Edinburgh Review has an article on the inconveniences of the common editions of the Bible " There are dear Hibles," says the reviewer, " and cheap Hibles ; there are Hibles so large that your baud can with dilliculty raise them ; and there are Hibles so small that they can be carried about in your pocket; there are itibles of which the paper is as glossy as satiu aud as thick as paste board ; and there are Bibles of which the pajier is so dark that the printing is hardly discernible, and so thin that the leaves crumple beneath your finger in turning the pages ; but, nevertheless,"among all these innumerable and variously diversified editions, no Bible has been hitherto produced which can be read with as much ease and comfort as any ordinary book. There is no such thing as a readable Bible." The writer recommends improvements. 1. That the Bible should he printed in several volumes. 2. That the text should be revised. :t. That the verse system ...

The contract Cbiu on by Messrs. John Adams and John Youm,es7 3100,000 per annum. They were reared to d .. posit 825,000 until the proper securities are furnished. Trie amount of security required by the ordinance is one-fifth of the entire contract price—that is, the price of one year. Mr. John Adams is well and favorably known as the agent of the fire insurance companies, and Mr. Youiiness as the captain of police of the late first municipality. Probably, if anybody can make the new system work well, they can." Gravity is a mystery of the body invented to conceal the detects of thesmind.
Romance of Magnetism. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 February 1856
Romance of Magnetism. Eugene Cnizot gives us an incident in Parisian life which he regards as romantic, and which is at least amusing: The scene is laid in a pavilion attached to a country house, in the neighborhood of the great city. The time, a lew minutes of 11. P.M. M. Armand awaits with impatience Madame X.. with whom he has arranged an interview at that hour, quite innocent; but less prudish people should not so regard it, quite secret. Close to the appointed time Mons. Armand hears footsteps. It is the lady ! The door opens ! He stands stupefied in the presence of the husband. Mons. X. has returned from Paris, and deeming it too late to awaken the sleepers of the house, comes to share the room of his friend in (he pavilion. The conversation between the lover (shall we call him so ?) and the husband is amusing, and as the hour approaches the perplexity of the former increases. Bis agitation leads him to the most inconsistent remarks, and the most inexplicable questions. " What...
