WRITTEN ON SEEING MY MOTHER'S PORTRAIT [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 22 February 1855
WRITTEN ON SEEING MY MOTHER'S PORTRAIT ON THE SECOND ANNIVERSARY OF HER DEATH. My Mother, as I gaze upon thy picture dear That still remiuds of thee now passed away To thy long home in heaven, My weary spirit finds a calm relief In thoughts of thee, to quell the youthful grief That to my heart was given. I will not mourn thee, Mother, no—this heart Can feel that thou art happier now above, From all earth's sorrows free: Though thy maternal smile from me is gone, I will be happy, even, though alone In memories of thee. Two years have flew, without thy faithful love, Two years, since from my side forever thou wert torn By death's relentless hand ; Tet bless me from thy heavenly home, and pray— When earthly ties are riven, I may join thee— In that bright spirit-land. Nora.
Wealth before Character. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 22 February 1855
Wealth before Character. In the upper circles of fashionable life, says the N. V, Independent, no questions are asked how one came by his money, if he only shows that he has money, or appears to have it. If he lives in a fine house, keeps a good carriage, gives splendid parties, no questions are asked as to whether all this is honestly paid for. With such a standard before them, it is not surprising that aspiring men, who feel themselves in other respects the equals, if not the superiors of their wealthy neighbors, should find some short road to wealth. The passion for riches, the idea that success in life depends mainly upon wealth, is fruitful in temptations to dishonesty. " For they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which, while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." ...

TRY AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 22 February 1855
TRY AGAIN. How oft has disappointment marred Some cherished plan of mine, And bidden winter clouds appear Where summer's sun should shine ; Yet ottcn as they darker grew, I've seen some wondrous pen Upon the very blackest write The sentence, " Try ogam." How often in the stilly hour Of night the heavy sigh In sympathy has strove to meet The tear-drop in my eye; And then like angels whispering Their messages t j men, I've heard a quiet breathing of The sentcuce, " Try again." How often, as I've walked amidst Life's ever busy tide, And jostled with its favored ones On each and every side ; When my misfortunes seemed to be O'crwhelming, even then Has some good spirit breathed to me The sentence, " Try again." My guardian angel it must be, Or else the weight of care Had sunk mo in the very depths Of sorrow and despair ; But, oh, my heart much lighter seems, And hope shines brighter, when I hear that spirit softly breathe The sentence, " Try again." —Lhtlequill.

The master of the shop not being in, the money was handed over to the boy. A few moments afterwards, the facetious parson meeting the tradesman, he addressed him with — " Billy Spade, your bill is paid /" This same parson was not over fastidious about his wardrobe. One day meeting his brother, who was also a divine, who censured him for being so careless about his dress, and especially reprimanded him for wearing striped pants, it being altogether unclmcal. Whereupon the humorous divine retorted by saying— "Brother C, my religion docs not lie in my breeches." One of the very best things, however, that we have heard was from a preacher of the same school as the former, and who did the preaching for a society in another town. His people he found were " Uncertain, coy, and hard to please." He...
