(Original. For the "Journal." TO LYDIA. BY ANACR*ON', JR. Lydia, let me steal again, That kiss of exquisite delight; Why should thy loVer plead in vain. Thou smiling, coaxing, teazing sprite? There's none to see—we're here alone, jfo busy tongue the theft to whisper, But if the theft should e'er be known, I'll tell them, "yes, t kissed my sister." When Venus first Adonis saw Reposing in his sylvan shade, Her queenship did not then withdraw, As doth your blushing modern maid; But kneeling near the bashf.l boy, In Love's soft accent him address'd, And clasped him in a trance of joy, Unto her glowing, pftnting breast. Once more, sweet girl! why leave with one, That were to part with half a kiss; And then I know when I am gone, You'll pout, and say—just think of this; He leaves me as the wanton bee, That barely sips the dewy flower, Then flits away at once to see What sweets perfume the nearest bower. San Ita/a«l, July 22nd 1861.
duttlr. A Wonderful Architect. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 27 July 1861
duttlr. A Wonderful Architect. Do you know the type setter is a •Wonderful architect? You see those bits of lead and zinc lying over and across each other, like tjje tangled braids of a mefmaids hair? And yet they form an army more powerful than any than ever fought in tented field. Yesterday they stood up proudly, professionally speaking in one "form," truly, in a thousand forms.—You may look the little bits with a smile on your lip, but you little dream they are stronger and wiser than you—that they will when you are dead and forgotten. They hare sometimes made you smile, and sometimes shudder, "Stocks!" Isn't there-something in that word? Haven't you been head and heels in them for years, and don't your feelings nse and fall with them alternately with them? A little further on you come to the word "Married."—Ah! I thought that would make you smile. I saw you kiss a baby then, and that unravels all. You hain't forgot the day when you •went courting, have you? There was a magic in ...
Terrible Realities of Insanity. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 27 July 1861
Terrible Realities of Insanity. Dr. Wixslow gives us to understand that madness is for the most part a condition of most awful suffering.— I used to think that though there might be dreadful misery on the way to madness, yet once reason fairly overthrown, the suffering was over. This appears not to be io. All the miserable depression of spirits—all the incapacity to banish distressing fears and suspicions, which paved the way to real insanity, exist in even intensified degree when insanity has actually been readied. — The poor maniac imagines he is surrounded by burning fires, that he is encircled by writhing snakes, that he is in hell, tormented by devils; and we must I remember the misery caused by firmly' believing a thing which does not existj is precisely the same as that which would be occasioned to a sane person if the things imagined werr- facts. It seems, too, that many insane people are quite aware that they are insane, which, of; course, aggravates what they have to endur...
Useful Hints to Young Mob. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 27 July 1861
Useful Hints to Young Mob. How many youg men ignorantly denj themselves of a fortune. There is scarcely a young man of good sense in this State who cannot save $100 from hiss annual earnings; and if he will forgo cigars, billards and juleps, he can save double that amount. Figure! sometimes produce incredible results. Thus, for instance, if a young man upon his twentieth birth-day will invest $100 in any stock, payiag ten par cent, and annually thereafter will invest the same amount, and the accumulation of interest, he will be worth when he is thirty years old, $1,753; when forty years old, $6,300; when fifty years old, 018,150; when sixty years old, 848,700. How simple,then, is the plan by which a youth of the present day can pass his old age in comfort and luxury. He has only to regulate his expenses so as to save $100 a year from his income. If the amount saved be larger, then the sum total will be increased in the same proportion. Only think of it, that $500 saved annually and ...
Profession and Practice. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 27 July 1861
Profession and Practice. Two kinds of witnesses are oftened cncountercd in a court of justice, the Mn-willing witness, and the foo-willing witness. Here is one who doesn't seem to come under that category. The attorney thus addresses him: "Mr. Parks, state if you please, whether the defendant, to your knowledge, has ever followed any profession." "He has been a professor ever since I hare known him." "Ah! a professor of n:hat?" "A professor of religion." " You don't understand me, Mr. Parks. What does he do?" "Well, generally what he pleases." j "Tell the jury, Mr. Parks, what the! defendant follows." "Gentlemen of the jury, the defendant follows the crowd, when the go to drink?" "Mr. Parks, this kind of prevarica-j tion won't do here. Now state, sir,! how the defendant supports himself." ! I "I saw him last night supporting: himself against a lamp-poat." May it please your honor, this wit-1 j ness shows a disposition to trifle with i this honorable court." T'i&gt;\ Court.—"...

SAN RAFAEL, JULY 27. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 27 July 1861
SAN RAFAEL, JULY 27. have had 110 Pony news of any importance since our last issue,— Which was up to July 15th; and much of the exciting intelligence then given, heeds confirmation, and which has been delayed in consequence of the telegraph j line being torn down between Lexington and Jefferson City. From the in-j dications then given, it is probable there j has been some severe fighting within | the past two weeks, The two armies, I about 15,000 strong on each side, were t in close proximity near Martinsburg, Va., and could not thus remain long' without a battle. In Missouri there had been severe skirmishing between the Federal and State troops, the result of which is not known at present. — The rebels are retreating to Manassas Junction, where they expect to make a desperate battle; they are "also with-1 drawing from Fairfax Court House.— Col. Baker's regiment has been ordered from Washington to Fortress Monroe. Congress has approved of the course of the President; provided means ...

Secession and Morality. [Newspaper Article] — Marin Journal — 27 July 1861
Secession and Morality. Florida was bought by the United 1 , j States, not for the special benefit of it s [ ! own people, or of those of the neighbor- j ! ing States, but for the benefit of the | whole people of the United States, witlijout respect to any State lines whatever, j Texas cost the whole people tens of! j thousands of lives, and a hundred and j j fifty millions of treasure. It was annexed and fought for, not from any consid-j |cration of benevolence to Texans, but! | for the benefit of the whole people of: 1 the I'nited States. It has been petted ; and protected since, by the most profuse ; expenditures of money, always 011 the supposition, by the people of the Uni-j I ted States, that when Texas so pcrsej vcringly sought annexation, she did it j in good faith, to make herself a part of j I the nation, for better or worse.
