POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 29 May 1847

POETRY. In the range of English Fugitive Poetry few pieces "are to be met with of deeper pathos or more tender feeling than the following, by Alaric Watts. It breathes the very soul of devoted affection :—:— FOR EVER THINE. F.or ever thine, whate'er this heart betide, For ever thine, where'er our lot be cast— Fate, that may rob us of all wealth beside, Shall leave us love till life itself be past. The world may wrong vs—we will brave its hate ; I False friends may change and falser hopes decline ; Tho' bowed by cankering care we'll smile at fate, Since thou art mine, beloved, and I am thine ! Forever thine—when circling years have spread Time's snowy blossoms o'er thy placid brow ; When youth's rich glow, its purple light is fled, And lilies bloom where roses flourish now. Say, shall I love the landing beauty less, Whose spring-tide radiance has been wholly mine ? No ! come what will, thy steadfast truth I'll bless— In youth, in age, thine own, for ever thine ? For ever thine, at ev...

WIFE, CHILDREN AND FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 29 May 1847

WIFE, CHILDREN AND FRIENDS. (Line Break) When the black-letter'd list to the gods was presented, The list of what fate for each mortal intends; At the long row of ills, the kind angle relented, And slipp'd in three blessings -- Wife Children and Friends. (Break) In vain angry Lucifer, swore he was cheated, For Justice Divine could not compass its ends; The scheme of man's fall, be maintained was defeated, For both became Heaven, with Wife Children and Friends. (Break) If the stock of our bliss be in strangers' hands vested, Like funds ill-secur'd, oft in bankruptcy ends; But the heart issues bills which can ne'er be protested, When drawn on the firm of Wife Children and Friends. (Break) Let the breath of renown, ever freshen and nourish, The laurel, that o'er her dead favorite bends -- O'er me wave the Willow, and long may it flourish, When bedew'd with the tears of Wife Children and Friends (Break) The soldier whose deeds live immortal in story, When duty to far distant latitudes s...

Bathing in Wine.—It is not generally known that wine baths are quite common in France —nevertheless such is the case. The duke of Clarence is not the only gentleman who has enjoyed an immersion in Malmsey. Punch has tried it with the very "best Sherry. Only imagine ! Punch—the veritable English Punch— swimming in French wine, and kicking and plunging, and laughing, until the tears ran down his cheeks'and never thinking of expense—a five franc piece ! " What ! a five franc piece for a tub full of wine ? Hurrah ! vive la France. " Gently—gently. At least fifty others bathed in the same wine—after Punch. The keepers oftheBAGNE had a preference for Punch, and gave him the first dip. After him came fifty others —making in all fifty-five franc pieces. A good price for the tub." " The wine was then thrown out ?" " Not at all. Not so, by any means." "What then?" "Bottled, of course !" "Bottled ! And for what purpose ?" " Why for drink, to be sure," " Drink ! Who would drink such stuff ?" Wh...
