The Railroad Phantom Again. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

The Railroad Phantom Again. The San Jose Tribune of April 2d contains the following: The With Went of Sunday last, in an article headed "The Railroad Phantom." boldly asserts that the immediate construction of a railroad from San Jose to Sun Francisco is impossible, and facetiously intimates that a series of able articles which have nppeared in the Chronicle, urging the commencement and speedy completion of this important work, have been thrown off under the influence of an imagination "diseased by railroads. We have uo idea or entering into such a work of supererogation as v defence -I the (Virimiele; though we may stiegest in passing, that the Wide West's idea af the railroad phantom" is undoubtedly original, as it evidently came from its own head. If the Tribune has encountered a " series of able articles" in the Chronicle on the railroad question, it has the advantage of us in that particular. We have not been so fortunate. Our article was mainly directed against the absurdity o...

Spiritual Plagiarism. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

Spiritual Plagiarism. W«3 have received the following communication in relation to the spiritual poetry published in last week's issue. In our introduction to the poetry, we observed that the lines seemed familiar, but we should be pleased to know the name of the poet of whom our correspondent writes. If any of our readers are in possession of facts bearing on the matter we shall be glad to receive them : Messrs. Editors :—I noticed in your publication of the 30th ult., a portion of the beautiful ode to the American Standard, composed nearly twenty years since by a young man in Hoston., whose early aud untimely fate excited universal sympathy, anil dee)> regret that a sun so brilliant was doomed to set. in clouds. His poetrw, several fugitive pieces of which were puhlithfid in the papers of the day, was much admired, and 1 recall to mind at this moment that beautiful ode written during an ear nest effort at reformation and an unsuccessful attempt to throw off the shackles...

An Agricultural Army Awfully Arrayed. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

An Agricultural Army Awfully Arrayed. A morning cotempornry, a few days since, favored its readers with the following item : Army or Acriciiltcrists for Nicaragua.—lt is confidently asserted that a company of one hundred men, to be armed with agricultural implements, is being formed in this city to proceed to Nicaragua by the next stenmer. A great deul has been confidently asserted in regard to the Xicaragnan invasion, but nothing more astounding than the above. Stories have been told in former times of beating swords into ploughshares and spears into pruning hooks, but even the record of inventions in the nineteenth century fails to show any such improvement in farming implements as would render them appropriate arms for the agricultural invaders ot Nicaragua. But as a step toward perfection in this particular, we have engaged an expert mechanical draughtsman, who, after several days of intense and uninterrupted mental application, produced the following model. As soon as the machi...

Senator Flint on the Chinese Question. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

Senator Flint on the Chinese Question. Wo have received a ropy of the speech of Hon. Wilson Flint, in tlM' Senate, on the proposition to reduce the Chinese, mining tax. It is an eloquent, aide effort, and we should 1m- glad to see it widely circulated. The grounds taken nre broad, mnnlr and statesman like. In this respect it maintains a striking contrast to the arguments on the other side of the question, which an' based on ronsidetations at once selfish, temporary, and narrow. When legislation for California is the result of equally comprehensive gag] sound views of public policy we may hope for reform uml progress.

Newspapers in California. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

Newspapers in California. It il estimated thai there are about four thousand newspajiers puolished in the world. Two thousand of these are said to be printed in the United States. Of this latter number serenty-Jire or more are published in the State of California. That the business should be profitable here is therefore a moral impossibility, when it is considered that more aapßll printed abroad are wild in this State than in any other in the Union. And yet there is no business into which men are so ready to rush in our community as the publication of papers. Almost every one imagines that if he were able to start a newspaper, he could conduct it so as to gain success in a very short period. Notwithstanding the glut in the market, and the admitted fact that one-half of the journals iv the State are losing concerns, week after week new sheets spring into existence and maintain vitality in a manner as astounding as it is tenacious. There is no immediate remedy for this state of affair...

Spiritual Lectures. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

Spiritual Lectures. We are informed that during the present month, a course of public lectures will be delivered in this city by-a spirit-medium iv the trance state, dictated by the spirits of Daniel Webster. Rev. H. 11. Basconv, D. B. Carlisle, of Kentucky, and others of intellectual eminence. These lectures will be looked forward to with much expectation, and if their quality realizes the anticipations of some of the spiritualists, they will be much more efficacious in making converts to the new doctrines, than any amount of scientific theorizing on the subject, however able or earnest it may be. The senses are the means by which alone the mass can be convinced of the truth of any new revelation. What, were called miracles in old times are ns essential to the religious belief of the million now its they then were. The lectures will he fifteen in number, aud will be delivered at the American Theatre. NioHTiNciAi.K Polka.—Messrs. Atwill & Co. have published this polka, a...

THE WEEK'S AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

THE WEEK'S AMUSEMENTS. Metropolitan Theatre.—Mile. Duret has been playing through the week to good houses, which have been mainly nttrncted by the performances of Messrs. Fisher aud Ijcnton. The dramatic company by which this ludv is supported, is, with a few exceptions.the most ineflieient of any which has given representations at this theatre. As n natural consequence, the dramatic performances have been unworthy of criticism. The representations of the two gymnasts, however, are very meritorious. The " anti|«idenn feat" of Mr. Letitnn is novel, tnongfa not at all wonderful to those familiar with the laws of natural philosophy. Mr. Fisher, on the mrtl* utmHlft', is the most daring performer we have ever seen, not excepting either Hiram Franklin or Oscar Stone. Tiie two are also expert in the " perche" trick, and the feats with globes. We have no doubt these gentlemen will find their visit to California a profitable one, and we take the liberty of hinting to them that it might be t...

Parting Compliments. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

Parting Compliments. It is seldom we have an opportunity of reading n really earnest and sincere notice of n departing "tirst citizen." Tiie following, however, is evidently written hy one who feels every sentiment it contains. It is from the Herald, and is quite refreshing when contrasted with the adulatory nonsense which accompanies the announcement of the same event in the Sun of this city, and Slate Journal of Sacramento: Joe* Higler, Assemlilvman, Speaker of Assembly, and afterwards Governor of the State for four years, leaves on the steamer of to-day for the Ka.-t.
