EDITION FOR THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 April 1856

EDITION FOR THE CITY. The Turners and the Sabbath. Some of the newspa|icr correspondents in this city have been making a great ndo because the German Turnvercin Association have chosen Sunday as the day on which to commence the celebration of their annual May-Feat. Without attempting to deny the right of the Germans to choose any day of the week for their celebration, (a right which the Sabbatarians have so far failed to take away by process of law,) these consistent champions have the assurance to request the Turners to change their day. became such a performance on Sunday is in their eyes a desecration. When it is considered that these entertainments have in former years been attended by a very large number of native citizens, and that they have bean more orderly and quiet than the majority of American festive gatherings, and that Sunday evening amusements have for years been patronized by a large majority of our citizens, the request of this puritanical minority seems as absurdly...

The Whims of the Wind. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 April 1856

The Whims of the Wind. Our old acquaintance, N. W. Wind, Esq., who has for so many years made Snn Francisco his favorite summer sojourn, pah] us a preliminary visit on Wednesday hist and gave many pungent proofs of his vigorous vitality. Misting his old partner I lust in several of the streets, he humorously set himself af work to bo-tow übiquity upon him. and attained a high degree of succ-ss.

The Pardon of Graham. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 April 1856

The Pardon of Graham. We understand that a petition is in circulation asking tbe pardon of this man, convicted of a foul and brutal murder. We are not aware that any other plea litis been urged in behalf of Kxecutive clemency in this case, except that it would be as well applied as in the instance of lloepke. Those who were weak enough to use strenuous efforts in that behalf may now see tbe legitimate results of their conduct. We do ho|>e that in the instance nf Graham the majesty of the law may be vindicated. Surely justice meets with sufiieient obstacles iv its endeavors to obtain the conviction of criminals to ensure it from any hindrance to the execution of the just sentence which il may occasionally succeed in obtaining. Or, if mercy must be shown in this instance, let imprisonment for lite lie the mildest substitute granted flrahfjl in the event of his escaping his deserved doom.

The Pacific Again. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 April 1856

The Pacific Again. Our cotcmporary preface. o its last article with an apology to its readers for again recurring to its controversy with the Winn Wkst, and assures them with an emphatic italicizatinn that it did not begin the fray. If wo were under a similar impression to that manifested by the Pacific-\t we supposed the matter was not one in which our readers feel a deep interest, we would be content to leave our neighbor in the possession of at least one laurel as a result of the controversy—the last word; but we fear even this must be denial it. It would be useless for us to offer further reasoning on the subject, as the Pacific has so far not even attempted to answer a tithe of our positions, and what it has deemed prudent to notice it has not, fairly stated. We propose simply to review the controversy, and end it, as far as we are concerned. On its side of the question the Pacific commenced by claiming for government a sort of paternal relation to its subjects. We denied the e...

CITY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 April 1856

CITY NEWS. As Important Don Cask.—An important dog case which has been before the Mayor's Court for several days, was got rid of yesterday. The charge was one of larceny against a Frenchman who was found in possession of a dog which was claimed by a broker on Montgomery st. A squabble ensued about the dog in the street, and liuullv the broker succeeded iv getting him and then brought the charge of larceny against the other claimant. The evidence was very conflicting, and beside that a dog is not property for criminal purposes in this State, so if k were proved that he had been stolen, the charge of larceny could not be sustained. The case was dismissed, und the parties recommended to settle the question of ownership by a civil suit. Pending this the noble auimal in dispute remains in " durance vile." Thk genuine Rcss Pavement.—We learn that a section of tbe genuine Russ pavement is to be laid down in the street in front of the Custom House, and that the work will be commenced in a f...

THE WEEK'S AMUSEMENTS. Metropolitan Theatre. — On Sunday, Monday and Tuesday evenings Miss Potter appeared in several characters, to thin houses, but acquitted herself creditably. On Wednesday evening a good house was present on the occasion of a benefit to the Fire Department, given by Mile. Duret. This lady appeared as Peg Wellington, a character in which she was not as successful as iv some others which she has heretofore performed. Wheat leigh, as Triplet, was excellent. Between the plays Mr. Mussett sang " Clear the Way," and Mr. Dunn executed " Villikinsand his Dinah." Faint Heart never Won lair Fahli/ closed the evening's performance, with Miss Potter as the Duchess de Torrenueva. Last evening, a good house was present at the benefit of Mr. John Torrence.

The "Doomed Valley." [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 April 1856

The "Doomed Valley." Those of our readers who may be classed among our old subscribers will remember the remarkable prediction made by Wilkins Micawbor, Esq., in his perilous exploration of those portions of the city in times past afflicted by grades, in relation to a valley existing near the head of Washington and Clay streets, between those thoroughfares. That sagacious prognostication is now in great part realized, and Mr. M. has the satisfaction (not permitted to him who forefold the extinction of Kgypt by a similar course of events.) of being in the land of the living at the time of its fulfilment. The habitable portion of the valley, then so picturesquely dotted with clothes-lines, pendant garments, and dilapidated fences, is now entirely tilled up, and the remainder is fast approximating to its destined level. Al some future day, we shall give a view of the block that will Boorish over the grave of the Doomed Valley, and then, if not till then, will San Francisco appreciate t...

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. Pulsions. Hahnemann's theory of homoeopathy originated in experiments instituted by him to discover the nature of the power exerted by Peruvian bark in the cure of intermittent fever, with the theory of which, at the time of instituting his investigations, he Was not satisfied. This is the account of his discoveries and subsequent course: "Ho took Peruvian bark inconsiderable quantity while in perfeflt health, and found that it produced "ant ague similar to the intermittent marsh fever. He seized upon this hint of nature in his practice, which he had again commenced in the insane asylum in Georgenthal, at Brunswick and Konigslutter, where by many experiments of the effects of simple medicine's on himself and his family, he acquired so much knowledge of their nature, that he effected majiy remarkable cures by homoeopathic applications. Ihe physicians and apothecaries immediately began to persecute him, and, at last, effected his removal by authority, on the gro...

AYe have seen Drury Lane Theatre filled with the members of the Anti-Corn-Law League and their families, to hear Cobden, Fox, and Bright, denounce the laws which made bread dear; but there was not, even in that immense building, such a crowd as the fame of the American orator drew together, last night." * * There are, at present, twelve American surgeons serving in the Russian army in the south of Russia.
