Arrival of the Overland Mail-Congressional Proceedings. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 4 February 1860

Arrival of the Overland Mail-Congres-sional Proceedings. A dispatch from Chicago, dated January 4th, states that the Republican Association fired one hundred guns that morning in honor of the election of Sherman. [It would be inferred from this that John Sherman, of Ohio, had been elected Speaker of the House, but the following report of proceedings in the House on the 4th seems to settle the fact that no Speaker could have been elected on that day in time for the news to reach Chicago in the morning.] House of Representatives. WASHINGTON, Jan. 4.—Mr. Washburn of 111., called attention to the letter he had read from a contractor in Rockvile, in that State, in which the writer stated that the condition of things that exist, owing to the failure to pay the mail contractors, cannot be imagined. Mr. Washburn wished to say to the contractors that he did not consider himself responsable for their distress. Mr. Washburn washed his hands of all responsibility. No speeches had been made by h...

Go it while you're young. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 4 February 1860

Go it while you're young. 'Tis pleasant on a summer eve, To join the social throng, And laugh, ha! ha! our cares away, And sing a merry song. Youth cannot always last, you know, As many a bard has sung; Then laugh, ha! ha! your cares away, And go it while you're young. The world may scoff at boyhood's bliss, And rail at ranting mirth, If joy admits no outward sign, Then what is pleasure worth? The flowers of youth full soon will fade, As many a bard hath sung; Then laugh, ha! ha! your cares away, And go it while you're young. Old age will soon, with feeble step, Come tottering o'er life's way, And silvery hair and furrowed brow, Will tell the heart's decay; Then catch at pleasure as it flies, Nor heed the bigot's tongue; And laugh, ha! ha! your cares away, And go it while you're young. Scene at the Dead Letter Office. A stranger in Washington would have been puzzled to account for the furious eagerness displayed last night by the crowd struggling to get into McGuirc's auction room. ...

The influence of Salt upon the growth and health of Cattle. The practice of salting stock at regular intervals, of generally at abcut once a week, is maintained by all good farmers. When cattle and other farm stock are allowed to partake of salt at pleasure, it is found that in the season of the year when the graRS is making its most luxuriant growth and is the most succulent, the consumption of salt i.s the greatest. Besides the beneficial effects of salt upon the animal system, its use serves as an important means to call together at stated periods the large herds that are pastured on the prairies and plains. Stock that have been thus treated expect it and are ready to answer at the first call of the herdsman. Bousfingault made some observations concerning the influence of salt upon the fattening of cattle. His experiments show that salt does not exert that beneficial influence on the growth of cattle and the production of flesh which is usually attributed to it. His experiments e...
