Up the Hill a Berrying. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 15 October 1859

Up the Hill a Berrying. On a sunny summer morning, Early as the dew was dry, Up the hill I went a berrying ; Need I tell you—tell you why ? Farmer Davis had a daughter, And it happened that I knew On each sunny summer morning, Jenny Up the hill went berrying too. Lonely work is picking berries, So I joined her on the hill; "Jenny dear," said I, "your basket's Quite too large for one to fill." So we staid —we two—to fill it, Jenny talking—l was stillLeading where the hill was steep, Picking berries up the hill. "This is up-hill business," said Jenny; "So is life," said I, "shall we Climb it each, alone, or, Jenny, Will you come and climb with me ?"

Truths for Young Men. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 22 October 1859

Truths for Young Men. We find the following article in the Laporte (Ind.) Times, and we commend it to the young men of the country who are about to take an active part in general politics. There is no subject more deserv ing their careful attention and consideration than that of establishing for themselves correct political mittlonS at the first start in life ; and if the institutions of the country and its constitution were properly studied, nine out of every ten of our voting men would commence their political life as democrats : Yocno MEM AS Partisans.—There is 1 no one thing in regard to which the young men ol this country are so liable to be misled as in the formation of their political principles. It is a privilege of the American people—'.'xercisea to a very great extent— to express lively and openly their Opinions upon every subject that may come under their notice. Religion, science, education —and we might enumerate other topics—all receive their proper nttention. and are ...

"We've Got a Baby." [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 22 October 1859

"We've Got a Baby." The following letter, which bears internal evidence of being a bona fide epistle, was picked up in one of our streets : Utica, May 12, 1859 Brother and Sister Stebbins—-We have got a live baby at our house, a little girl baby —that's so. How I wish this might find you in the same situation. You know I always wished you well. But our baby is none of your common babies. She laughs (and cries ) so pretty, you can have no idea how handsome she is. It is decided by the best of judges (her mother and me) that she is the handsomest child that ever lived; and everybody says, "what a pretty child, how much she looks like her father;" —children will resemble their parents, you know. I wcmld'nt take twenty dollars for her; no sir, no temptation. Perhaps you think I'm a fool. Who cares—guess you'd be a fool if you had such a baby. I wish your domestic affairs would come to a crisis, (crysis.) You must excuse all mistakes, for I'm so delighted and transported that I expect th...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 22 October 1859

CHANGE. —We will hereafter print our paper on Friday evening, instead of Saturday morning. The paper will be delivered on Saturday morning. Our columns are mostly occupied by correspondents, which we are pleased to see. This is the first opportunity the citizens of the county have bad to hold converse with each other through the medium of a newspaper, and make known the wants, wishes, and interests of the community at large. The subject treated upon by Mr. Nichols, is one of the deepest interest of all others to the farming interest, as well as the citizens of the town of Visalia, and we hope that others may take up the subject and give their views at large. It is highly important that some plan should be adopted that will give a general distribution to the water at the least expense. A communication from Keyesvilie, from a reliable source, will be read with much interest. All may go to Mono Lake who wish. In early days we followed those periodical stampedes to our entire satisfacti...

Tour Through the Mines on the San Joaquin. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 22 October 1859

Tour Through the Mines on the San Joaquin. Last week we departed for the purpose of visiting certain portions of Fresno county, and to acquaint ourselves with the available resources of that section. We jumped aboard Messrs. Hice & Thom's line of Stages, running from Visalia to Hornitos, and must say the accommodations afforded passengers by this line surpass any similar conveyance in the State ; and further, this is the best natural road of the length, being 125 miles, in the State. These gentlemen intend, in a few days, to run tri-weekly through to Hornitos, connecting regularly with the Stockton Stages. The time made on this road will equal, if not surpass, that of the Overland. About 9 o'clock, the following morning, we drove up in front of the Oak Hotel, Millerton, and received the cordial grasp and welcome smiles of our many friends, among which number we must mention, although we have an aversion to '•mentioning names," Mr. McC'ray, the worthy host of the Oak Hote...

Lines To Nellie's Dagnercotypes. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 22 October 1859

Lines To Nellie's Dagnercotypes. I know not why, and yet 'tis so, Thine image ever haunts me; AVher'cr I turn —wher'cr I go — That lovely picture taunts me. That smiling lip—that wicked eye— Speaks to me so plainly: "Tho' from love you strive to fly, You'll find 'tis oh, how vainly." "Your heart was never made to flee From lips more red than roses; And in the strife with self you see, How much that strife discloses." Alas! I find 'tis all too true — Mv heart will still keeep moving— And tho' the maid I do not view, An image I am loving. A picture, then, 'tis best to love— My mind its thoughts arranges, And never false to me 'twill prove — Thy picture never changes. Hermit's Den. WOODIET.
