BOYHOOD REMINISCENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

BOYHOOD REMINISCENCES. JOHN L. WILLIAMS. I know a sweel, sequestered vale, Shut in by hills, bestrewn with flowers. Where, sheltered from the wintry gate, I'd love to pass Life's evening hours; In peace to bask beneath its genial skies, And there at last to close my glimmering eyes. In spring how green those hilU appear, With vines and clustering foliage crowned ! While fields their waving glory wear, And cereal plenty smiles around ; Sweet homvs embowered in traiufuil beauty lie. And here and there a spire doth mark the sky. Gay, gladsome birds of song are there. And with their sweet, wild warblings flood With melody the taintless air, And animate each grove and wood : How often for hours, I've listened to their lays— Their matin songs, their vesper hymns of praise. With many a winding turn and sweep Meandereth a silvery stream. Whose gentle purls would lull to sleep The cares with which our lift-scenes teem ; O | may I yet its liquid music hear In rippling whispers stealing on my ...

Mr Benton's Valedictory. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

Mr Benton's Valedictory. We publish in another column this morning a letter from the Nestor of American polities, Hon. Thomas H. Henton. to a gentleman in Missouri, which is highly charart'-ristic of the writer's mind. Mr. BeaUM states, and we have DO doubt truly, that he has never seen the day when he desired to be a eanditate for the Presidency, though he dots not intimate that he has had no desires to attain to that exalted office. Like \je Sage's old man who thought the peaches were not as good as they were when he was a boy. Mr. Kenton thinks there is no longer any chance for doing good to the couiurvin the Senate. It is a fatal sign of waning power. Politics, he thinks, is reduced to a hurrah for or against Slavery, and he sees only ruin to the Union from the triumph of either party. Politics he says. " have run down too low" for it to be longer pleas ant to him to engage in their discussion. J{ u t. U-st any ol the rising generation should be dis]>osed lo be faint-...

Dual Forces. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

Dual Forces. Frofessor Farraday, without knowing it, is fast becoming a Spiritualist. In a lecture, recently delivered in London, on Force, he substantially accepts one ol the philosophical tenets of the spiritualists—a dogma on the quality of forces, which they have long insisted on, and which may be found discussed in the works of Davis and others. He could not have derived his belief from any other source, and we are lain to believe that he has been attentively reading the philosophical .cachings ol American Theosophists, and is in effect one of them. "In his lecture he took the ground," says an Knglish reporter, " that there are neither two kinds of electricity, nor two kinds of magnetism, as commorly believed. He argues that if there really be two kinds of electricity, or two kinds of magnetism, it should be possible to obtain one without the other: such, however, is an impossibility. A positive electrical action does not admit of their being generated without their simultaneou...

Extraordinary Birth. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

Extraordinary Birth. The Paris Steele publishes the following extraordinary narrative: " The Hue de Faubourg dv Temple has been thrown into a state of great excitement by an event of the most extraordinary kind. At noon yesterday, at the moment when the corpse of a woman named Aigneul, who hail died at No. Gf> in the street, was being removed for interment, drops of blood were seen to ooze out from the coffm. The undertaker ordered the bearers to stop, and on the coffin beiug opened, cries were heard issuing from the bloody shroud with which the body was enveloped. The spectators of this appalling scene were deely moved. But what was their astonishment when, on the grave-clothes being torn, they saw that the deceased had given birth to a child of the male sex. The child, perfectly well-formed, was living, lt was immediately consigned to fhe care of a nurse, and the interment of the mother was postponed for twenty-four hours.

Singular Historical Facts in Literature. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

Singular Historical Facts in Literature. We see by the Knglish pa|>ers that an Knglish gentleman lately offered a prise of £300 for the beat "Statement and Herniation of the fftwctoa System of Philosophy." The examiners appointed were the Archbishop of t 'antet bury and the Bishops of London and Oxford. Several essays were sent in, but the judges report that not one of them has Iteen found satisfactory, aud the period for competition has been extended until the end of the present year. As an offset to this failure to get a consistent refutation of Hindooism, some of our readers may remember that a few years ago a prize was offered in London for the best essay in favor of Christianity, competition being thrown open to the world. Several essays were examined and rejected, when the committee Opened one that was unanimously pronounced the thing, and the prize was accordingly awarded. On opening the letter containing the name, it was found that the essay was from the pen of a ...

To Those Who Decry Tales and Novels. Ctorn W.

Fiction is no more to lie explained or dcfcndi-d than the sunset OT the rose. If anybody objects to novels in the abstract, he objects to man. It is no more waste ot time to read a cood novel than to read a good ink-iii. or look at a fine sunset, or yield to a noble instinct. I have heard -adevod dcigf USCI publicly denounce fiction as such to young men. and then preach croaking sermons on the parables.

Large Sugar Estate. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

Large Sugar Estate. In the Southern Christian Advoeatt wo find an interesting letter from an American at Cuba, from which we extract the following. The writer was a guest at the sugar estate known as « The Flower of Cuba," and says :—•• This estate contains five thousand acres ot productive lands. AVc rode for hours through immense fields of sugar cane, twelve to eighteen feet high. These fields are divided by beautiful avenues of royal palm and mango trees. Many of the trees are sixty to eighty feet high, in the distance looking like white marble columns. They commence cutting the cane in December, and the top is used for cattle. In Louisiana the cane has to be renewed annually—here, once in ten and fifteen years. It is huuledin carts drawn by oxen to the sugar mill, which is usually located in the centre of the farm. " Formerly the grinding was done by ox power, but recently "the Ajsencan engine has been introduced. The buildings and machinery on this estate cost three hundred tho...

The Maine Law Knocked in the Head. Where is Greeley? What has become of all those addle-patod fanatics who, but a year ago, were yelling for the passage of the Maine Liquor Ijiw, which, they claimed, would have the beneficial effect of banishing all vice, disease, violence, poverty anil .suffering from our streets. Where arc all those crazy-headed, weak-minded, and hollowhearted lawyers, divines, judges, mooters, politicians and reformers who. by force of incessant yelling, screaming, wailing, petty trickery, smiling and whining succeeded at last in electing a governor and legislature who knew so little of constitutionality, and were so incompetent to interpret popular opinion, us to be easily persuaded into the folly ol passing a prohibitory law which has never for an hour been obsor »ed by the people, nor sanctioned by any respectable judicial authority I The trtM friends of tem|iorance strenuously opposed the bill, and all good citizens, with a th'inible-lull of brains and an oun...

Hint to Smokers. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

Hint to Smokers. A pharmacian. of Poitiers. France, has been instituting a course of mptliuirmta to ascertain the exact quantity of nicotine absorbed by smokers, in proportion to the weight of tobacco consumed. The apparatus used consisted of a stone jar. in which the tobacco was made to barn, connected to a scries of bottles communicating by tubes. The bottles were either empty, or contained some water. Blind or not with a little sulphuric acid. From a few ex pcrinionts it was found that, in the smoke of tohaCCO extracted by inspiration, there is ten per cent, nicotine. Thus a man who smokes a cigar of the weight of seventy grains, receives in his mouth seven grains of nicotine, mixed with a little watery vapor, tar. etnpyrenmatie oil. Ace. Although v large portion of this nicotine is rejected, both by the smoke puffed from the mouth and by the saliva, a portion of it is, nevertheless, taken up by lhe vessels of the buccal and laryngeal mucous membrane, circulated with the blood, a...

The Eastern Question. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

The Eastern Question. A foreign correspondent remarks upon the probabilities of peace, in the East, and the future destiny of Turkey as follows:—•• I have no faith in there being a peace, though a general belief prevails that it will take place in eight or ten days. If it docs, it will be in contradiction to everything I see and hear as to what is passing around me. If peace be made, and on the basis promulgated, it will be liecause there is an understanding lietween Prance, Russia and Austria, adverse to England, lt doubtless is a great and important item for Russia, as well as for Austria, to bieak up the present alliance lietween France and England ; and if France says there shall bo peace, Knglund will have no alternative but to agree, as she will never think of continuing the war single-handed against Russia. It is now fully understood that the French troops will -ontinue to occupy Turkey, and a very strong garrison will be maintained at Constantinople, which city, as I wrote y...

Madcap Boys. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

Madcap Boys. To be born, to be a feeble infant, is an ordeal through which all must pass. To be a boy is an absolute pre-requisite to manhood, and boys will lie boys, let old and wise people say what they will. They will feel, think and act like boys. They will skate on the ice, ride down hill, be" frivolous und jolly, play all sorts of antics, do a great manythings which, to the sobriety of age, will look like folly. But what of that ? Who would clothe boyhood with the dignity, invest it with the gravity, or endow it with the wisdom of tho finished man ? To do so would be to rob life of its brightness and glory—to take away its spring time —to plunder it of its flowers—to" silence the voice of gladness—to still the music of its singing birds, and to banish its loveliest sunshine. Thk Contempt of Base.nkss.—Noble souls with difficulty reach the comprehension of evil and ingratitude ; they require harsh lessons before they recognize the extent of human corruption. The*, when their ed...

My wife has commenced to practice, and the first time she touched the machine. I thought we were in the midst of a thunder storm, and the lightning had struck the crockery chests.
