ROYAL LOVE; OR, SECRETS OF THE COURT OF CHARLES THE FOURTH OF SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 6 August 1846

ROYAL LOVE; OR, SECRETS OF THE COURT OF CHARLES THE FOURTH OF SPAIN. It was at the close of a fine autumnal evening in the year 179-, that the signal of a " Man-of- War in the Offing!" was made from the lofty look-out tower of Cadiz; and in another hour, his Catholic Majesty's ship Antorcha dropped her anchor in the Bay, after an absence of upwards of three years, during which period that vessel had been employed on the South American station. The families residing in that great commercial city, as well us in the towns contiguous to its bay, (in which that grand naval depot, Las Carraccas, had been far ages established,) had annually contributed a portion of their junior members, both as officers and seamen, for the service of the Royal Fleet. An arrival, therefore, of a king's ship from a foreign station, was an event which could not fail to attract crowds of anxious inquirers of all ranks to the port, eager to embrace some beloved friend or relative. Early on the following morning...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 6 August 1846

New Meeting House in Roxbury.—A new edifice has just been erected in Roxbury, called the Mount Pleasant Congregational Church. It is an imposing-looking building, with a tall spire, and makes quite a conspicuous appearance when approaching that city from Boston. This church has been erected by funds furnished chiefly by the members of Rev. Dr. Putnam's society, (Unitarian,) at the suggestion of their pastor, to furnish accommodation to those who are unable to obtain seats in his church. The necessary sum was subscribed, and the building is now nearly completed and will probably be dedicated the last week in this month. The external appearance of this church has been much admired. The plan was designed by Mr. Melvin of Cambridgeport, who is also the contractor for building the church. It is what is commonly termed the Roman style of architecture, and combines harmony of proportion, with neatness, simplicity and elegance. It is located at the corner of Dudley street and Greenville str...

CONGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 6 August 1846

CONGRESS. The Tariff. —On Wednesday evening of last week, before any copies of the Chronicle were printed, it was rumored that the Tariff bill had passed in the Senate. We were incredulous, because the bill had been committed, at the close of the session on the preceding Monday, to the committee of finance, with instructions to report certain amendments. In our simplicity we concluded that instruction being a relative act, obedience was necessary as the correlative. But a majority of the committee, fast bound by the spell of that much abused and inapplicable term, free-trade, stood self-centred and immovable : "They willed but what they must By destiny, and could no other choose." Consequently they pleaded the impossibility of complying with their instructions; and fate having decreed the destruction of one system and the substitution of some other, the Senate, with a transcendental perception surpassing all argument, experience, and common facts, put their seal to the inevitable de...

FOREIGN. The Hibernia brings English papers of the 18th July. The Great Western arrived at Liverpool on the 10th ult., carrying the news of the ratification of the Oregon treaty. The Hibernia brings the ratification of the treaty by the English government. The offices in the new ministry were nearly filled, and Lord John Russell had made a guarded declaration in the Commons concerning the principles and course of the ministry, and spoke of the liberality exercised in filling the respective offices.

Repeal of the English Corn Laws.— No slight interest has been felt and expressed on this side of the Atlantic, in regard to the repeal of the English Corn Laws. But so far as it is a mercenary interest we are probably doomed to great disappointment. The market thus opened to receive our surplus grains will ordinarily be not only very stinted in regard to the quantity demanded, but also very unproductive in respect to profits. To our Western farmers the repeal is an injury. Those who could, under the corn laws which are annulled, transport their grain and flour into Canada for the English market, subject only to a trifling colonial duty, enjoyed a lucrative commerce in these articles. They stood on better ground than the grain-pro-ducers bordering on the Mediterranean and the Baltic; for these were charged with a much higher duty. This inequality being now done away, our Western producers will hardly be able to compete with the grain-growers in the region of those seas, which afford ...

ITEMS-BY THE SCISSOR EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 6 August 1846

ITEMS-BY THE SCISSOR EDITOR. The Nautucket Inquirer states that every safe that was exposed to violent and continued heat in the late fire, failed to preserve the books and papers desposited in it—while the stone vault in the M. & M. Bank and the town's store, protected their contents uninjured. At the Merchants' Exchange, Boston, a petition has been placed, for the pardon of Capt. Flowery, sentenced a little more than a year since to five years' imprisonment in Salem jail. The Washington Union learns by the Cambria, that our minister at London is preparing to return home, and will embark for the United States as soon as the necessary arrangements have been made for his successor. It is mentioned as a remarkable coincidence that one vote carried the Tariff of 1824; one vote the Tariff of 1828 ; one vote in each House carried the tarriff of 1842 ; and by one vote in the Senate the Tarriff of 1846 has become a law. Some one has discovered that the centre or gravity is in t...

THE COLUMBIA RIVER AND ITS VALLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 6 August 1846

THE COLUMBIA RIVER AND ITS VALLEY. Their Commercial and Agricultural value. Extract from the speech of Mr. Denton, of Missouri, on the Oregon Question, in the senate of the United States—May, 1846. Agriculturally the value of the country is great ; and, to understand it in all its extent, this large country should be contemplated under its different divisions—the threefold natural geographical divisions under which il presents itself: the maritime, the middle, and the mountain districts. The maritime region—the fertile part of it—is the long valley between the Cascade and the coast ranges of mountains, extending from the head of the Wah-lah-math, near the latitude of 42 degrees, to the Straits of Fuca, near latitude 49. In this valley lies the rich tidewater region of the Columbia, with the Wah-lah-math river on the south, and the Coweliske, and the Olympic district, on the north. It is a valley of near five hundred miles long, north and south, and above one hundred wide ;—rich in s...

Nantucket.— There is more stir in what were once the streets of the burnt district than we have noticed there for months before, and the ruins are all alive with busy workmen, removing fallen chimneys piling up half burnt wood, collecting into heaps the remains of iron ware, digging cellars for buildings which have already been contracted for, and going through sundry other performances rendered necessary by the night-long rule of King Fire.— Preparations for building are already going on to some extent on the south side of Main-street, and the owners of land elsewhere are many of them only waiting for the town to take some action upon the proposed improvements in the street, to commence the work of reconstruction. Meanwhile, temporary buildings are going up, on sites least likely to be speedily wanted for more permanent edifices, where our store-keepers will "hold out," until they can he furnished with better accommodations. People generally keep up their spirits wonderfully ; they...

COMMON COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 6 August 1846

COMMON COUNCIL. Mr. Everett moved that the Report of the Committee on Public Instruction be now taken from the table. Mr. Norris had just previously given notice that he did not intend to make such a motion, he being of the opinion that the action taken on the subject had become law, and therefore the Committee on Public Property were authorized to build the school houses as recommended, and would proceed accordingly. Mr. Sargent asked if a law had passed giving authority to the committee to proceed. He had been ubsent for some time, and did not know how the matter stood. The Chair stated that an order coming from the other Board, after being concurred in by this body, could not be rescinded, without the consent of the Board of Aldermen. The question now before the Council was on the acceptance of the Report. Mr. Farwell thought it was due to our citizens that more time should have been given to the consideration of a question of so much importance; and thought we could amend the re...
