The Women of Russia. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 30 September 1854

The Women of Russia. The Russian ladies, like other ladies of rank in many European countries, who are bred in the lap of luxury, employ and practice all the attractive and seductive arts which most enchant society. They have much vivacity of mind, grace of manner, and display the most exquisite taste in everthing appertaining to dress. The charms which captivate, and the amiable qualities that win the admiration of the public, are not, however, certain indications of private worth or private happiness. The domestic virtues are little cultivated or little known in Russia. Marriage is a mere matter of convenience and money, and as soon as the children of a noble house have been sent as hostages to one of the schools or colleges under the control of the government, the lord and lady often become estranged in their affection. Each may occupy their separate apartments, and keep up their separate establishments. The master indulges his peculiar tastes and pleasures without reference to h...

Printing Presses, Pulpits, and Petticoats. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 30 September 1854

Printing Presses, Pulpits, and Petticoats. These are the three great levers that govern the world. Without them the bottom would fall out, and society would become chaos again. The press makes people patriotic, the pulpit religious, but woman sways all things. There would be no going to church if there were no girls there, neither would there be any going to war were the soldiers to meet with no applause but from the masculines. Without the sunshine shed by women, the rose of affection would never grow, nor the flowers of eloquence germinate. In short, she is the steam-engine of life, the great motive-power of love, valor, and civilization. In proof of this truth all history speaks trumpet-tongued. It is said of French ladies, that their fondness for effect runs to such excess, that widows who have lost their husbands practice attitudes of despair before a looking-glass.

The French Waiter. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 30 September 1854

The French Waiter. French waiters may make less money than English waiters make; may go out to more fetes; may display their graces more frequently at balls; may be perhaps more susceptible of the tender influences of waitresses; but it is the indisputable fact, that they contrive to save more capital in one year than an English waiter puts away in ten years. Every Paris visitor is familiar with the men in black, whose clothes are guarded by long snow-white aprons reaching to their boots; who pass all their waking moments outside the Boulevards cafes, with a cloth under one arm, and a choppe, or a demi-tasse, in the right hand. We all remember their quiet, quick manners; their dexterity in pouring the coffee over the cup into the saucer; the air of reckless yet practised extravagance with which the brandy is dashed into the little gontte glass, nearly filling the silver tray upon which it stands. These Paris waiters are a peculiar race. As they nearly all come from Alsace, so they n...

"Think of your Wife." [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 30 September 1854

"Think of your Wife." Every one h»i heard of Mr. J. A. Whipple, the most accomplished djgucrreotypist and crvstalotypist of the age, whose wortiof art have been the subjectof admiring comment in tliK community for years. Well, we have now in our possession an anecdote connected with a certain well-know n personuge, who visited his establishment for the purpose the counterpart of his features to present to his tetter half, which is too good to be lost. The gentlemanly md courteous artist requested his patron to take a seat unci he should be enabled, by the connivance of circumstance and the alacrity ofthe present recifiients of the advntitages of his art, to wait upon hini. A ew minutes had consequently elapsed, when Mr. Whipple appeared und politely requested his visitor Ui take a seat within the enclosice. He accordingly did so, and all prefatory instrumenUl arrangements were completed, when Mr. W. directed lis gtue towards his subject, immediately started back, and exclaimed— "Tut...

Philosophy of Broadway Splendor. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 30 September 1854

Philosophy of Broadway Splendor. The splendor of me public stores opened and forming on Broadway, and [the enormous expenses they entail, constitute no wonda- to those versed in the pleasant arts of public enticement, snd familiar with tlie sweet rewards of paying hoinugeto flshion. The finer the store, the more obsequious the uttudance. The lady who goes in a graceful mortal, cones out a divinity. Though forgotten the moment her purchases ure closed, she imagines herself the better half -(' that whole establishment, aud will hasten ugain, only mo soon, to indulge in the intoxicating dream. A friend of ours went to Turkey, and there took v fancy to get holdj if possible, of some government contracts. ( in.ml dinjiers hi all public functionaries were at once resorted to.

Improvements in Ships and Boats. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 30 September 1854

Improvements in Ships and Boats. The experimesta! Bchooner yacht Inclined Plane, 75 tons, ci instructed upon Lipscombe's new principle, was launched on the loth ult. from Mr. Cunningham's yard, Southampton. Great expectations hare been formed with regard to this sfbeoner. She will be fitted out as rapidly as possible, and it is expected that in about three weeks she will be publicly tried at Southampton. A jolly-row-boat, thirteen iwf loug, by three and a half feet wide, lately built upon the same principle, has astonished every one by the excellent qualities exhibited by her. As a rowboat she is remarkably easy to pull, is very stiff and buoyant, and wheu propelled by canvas alone, sails twice as.fast as any other hoat of her own size, aud has easily outsailed an eight-ton yacht, hitherto considered fast, that waa expressly tried against her.— London Paptr.

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 30 September 1854

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. Mormon Definitions-.—l suppose that every one knows that the word Bible is from the Greek biblos —a book; making the work of God to be the Book, or the Bible; but an individual who did not know the real definition of the word, gave a meaning somewhat musical. A Methodist E rancher the other day was telling of the affair. He said c was laid up with a tumor in his shoulder, which tumor made him very irritable; and while in that plight a Mormon preacher came in to bother him. He wished to get rid ot the Mormon as soon as he could, and hence began to quiz him. In the conversation the Methodist asked the signification of the word " Bible." The Mormon at once began to analyze the word " Bible;" said he, " bybell—well, I suppose when the writers received the revelations they received a small portion at a time, which they wrote down on small bill* of paper and laid by, and ana finally they took all these laid by bills, nnd put them together into a book, which they calle...

Ugly as Sin. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 30 September 1854

Ugly as Sin. "Well, stranger, you air chawed up pretty considerable bad, and that's a fact. Bar or catamount ?" The scene was the country store at the cross-roads, in the town of H , which all who have hunted or traveled much in Herkimer county will recollect; and the polite interrogator was a large, bushy-whiskered, hardfaced man, in a red flannel shirt, whose appearance, no less than his dialect, proclaimed him to be from the far West. It was evening, and a group of loungers were smoking and chewing by the open tire, whose warmth, though it was a midsummer night, was far from unpleasant The person to whom the question was addressed, partly turned his head toward the speaker, but did not immediately reply ; and I took the opportunity of examining him more closely than I had done upon his entrance. He was, without exception, the ugliest, most pitiable specimen of humanity that I have ever seen. One of his legs had been amputated above the knee; his right hand was withered and contra...
