Years have flown by since that beautiful morning in summer, when the basis of my sketch was indellibly impies-/sed upon my memory. Horiuon presented an ruffled surface, and the forest trees by which the sides and summit of Mt. Defiance were clad rustled softly in the zephyr breathing atmosphere. The sun had not yet tinged the green foliage of the tamarack and hemlock with his golden hues, an...

National Ideas ,of Paradise.. [Newspaper Article] — Bradford Porter — 28 February 1844

National Ideas ,of Paradise.. Almost all nations have united to make the future abode of good spirits a garden; a name among the Assyrians synonymous with Paradise. The Mahometans call the Paradise to which the i faithfully will be called, Jarmnt le Nmn the Garden pf Pleasure; lannat Aden,, the Garden of Perpetual Abode, and ' not uufrequenily by the simple name of others. The laplander believes Paradise to be situated in the centre of the snows of Sweden ! The Muscogulees imagine it among the island of.the vast Pacific. The Mexicans conceived that those if ho died of wounds, or were drowned, went to a cool and delighted place, there to enjoy all mariner of pleasures; those who died in battle > or in captivity, were wafted to the palace of.the,sun, and led a life of endless . delight. After an abode of four years' in this splendid habitation, the animated clouds.: and birds of beautiful feather,, and ofisweet song; having at tho sarnie time, liberty to ascend to Heaven ...

Hobbies. , [Newspaper Article] — Bradford Porter — 28 February 1844

Hobbies. , 11 you want to be happy, mount; a booby. This world is a dreary place to a man who has not a hobby. He knows not what to do with his time, if he has got any to spare, and if be has got none to spare, he knows not 'how jto season -his labor so as to make it palatable. A man will learn more in a week mounted on a hobby,. than in twelve months walking on his leather soles. Boys should by no means cease to ride hobbies when they become men; they ought merely to procure more manly hobbies, and ride on. In , fact, the most valuable portion of the life of man is that which he spends on his hobby. He himself is happy in'riding and most probably he invents or discovers something which promotes the happiness of others. All great improvements in art, all great discoveries' in science, - have been made by men when riding on their bobbies. In fine, the greatest luminaries of mind which the world has produced, have been hobby riders; • men who apparendy sacrified themselves for...

The Old Cabbage Patch. ~ [Newspaper Article] — Bradford Porter — 28 February 1844

The Old Cabbage Patch. ~ We recollect all excellent story illustrative of the attachment of our good old Dutch ancestry to their cabbage patches, which, in the hands of,DieHich Knickerbocker, that worthy and veracious historian, would swell into a delightful rom'antique burlesque. But, since Irving is not one of the editors of the Aurora, and we hate,, for our readers' sake, to lose the story, wfi shall e'en tell it in our own way. Derrick Von Schaussen then was one of the most staid and respectable Dutchmen that ever settled on the banks of the Croton; and his " goedt^frau" was as tidy a matron as ever*knit striped mittens, or taught her daughters the mysteries of "treading kraut"—in other words, preparing cabbage for a certain process, by some called fermentation and by others rotting—by treading it down in a barrel with their naked feet. For many years every thing went well with this worthy couple.— Their children grew and prospered—promising to turn out as bouncing a set...

" Looker on In Venice." [Newspaper Article] — Bradford Porter — 28 February 1844

" Looker on In Venice." The Argus correspondent, over the above signature, no doubt thinks he has annihilated the argumentof :the." author" on the subject of the tariff, to whose opinions we referred in a preceding number! " Looker on in Venice" is not inclined to receive as trrie the opinions Of any author;, because he has the reputation of being a great tnan; very true, but does he know who that * author' is ? In order that "Looker on in Venice" may know who he is combatting, and whether a great man in this instance has passed by the. starting place in searcti of the other, end, we will give his napei—It is CoL Joseph Kingsbery;" a.gentleman .whom we highly respect. The quotations which we made, were from the preamble and resolutions offered by him in-May, 1833, in support of John C. Calhoun, and in opposition to the special message of General Jackson. ,We think them sound. " Looker on.in Venice" cannot object to such authority.

Maryland Elections [Newspaper Article] — Bradford Porter — 28 February 1844

Maryland Elections The; Congressional election in Maryland should have been held in October last; but as the Whigs had a majority in the Senate, they refused to concur in a bill districting the state, passed by the.deraocralic House of Representatives.
