NOW IS THE TIME TO SUBSCRIBE ! Commencement of the Third Volume. ONLY FOUR DOLLARS A TEAR I The Wins West is now in the third yeur of its existence, nnd having been before the public foraptatud sufficiently extended to enable the mass of newspaper renders to ascertain its characteristics and rhrm their own opinion as to its merits, its proprietors do not deem it necessary to enter into an extended notice of its objects and the means by which they are to be attained, lt will continue to uphold the Kight, and to satirize Pretension and Corruption, whether it be in the person of a " merchant prince" or a prominent politician. In its News Department, it will be found correct and complete.

The Pacific once more in the Field. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

The Pacific once more in the Field. If language has any definite, distinct meaning. we were certainly justified in deducing from the following sentence, which appeared in the Pacific of April 24th, that it was wearied of the controversy, and would not again return to it: "Our readers will pardon us for recurring again to this controversy, which ye did not liegin." This remark of our cotemporary would completely justify us in declining to enter the lists with it again, were we disposed to be sensitive in points of newsnaper etiquette. But. although by no means gratified in devoting so much space to the establishment of a principle which to republicans should be as selfevident as that two and two make four, we accede to the proposition of our cotemporary. and publish its article entire, in consideration of its reciprocating the favor. Here it is : The Wive Wkst ox Ooeaaaaaav aoaix.- Absence from the city mireaahid us from receiving the last article or the Wide Wemtj apoa this saajutt,...

Diabolical. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

Diabolical. Some "fiend in human shape" celebrated the first of April on the tiolden tiate recently by placing artistically bent pins on the seat of Bet. Mr. Simonils, who was a passenger on that vessel With remarkable sagacity that gentleman ascertained his impalement simultaneously with its occurrence, and with admirable presence of mind rose to his feet before any of those present had time to suggest so sensible a course of conduct, and actually remained in a standing position till the offensive articles were extricated from his person. We nre sorry that the excitement of the gentleman prevented the contriver of this exquisite joke from acknowledging its nuthorship, as we are thereby precluded from announcing that '• the police are on his track." It is gratifying, however, to learn that immediately after the commission of the dreadful deed '■ silence reigned in the company for a moment or two." The sad occurrence, however, may be productive of some good result, for to it we are i...

CITY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

CITY NEWS. The Case ok Capt. Oallowat.—The examination in the rase of Capt Galloway, charged with having set fire to the steamer Young America 00 Bar trip to Marysville, was continued yesterday. A man named Hogle testified that when the fire broke out, he saw a man, whom lie had seen below, running about, apparently much confused, and he told him not to be alarmed. He saw him go ashore at Sacramento. It was not Capt. Galloway. About ten minutes before the lire broke out be suw a man come out of the state room opposite to where the lire was. He saw a man bring a carpet bag from the opposite side of the cabin from where he was sitting, und set it down near tbe bow sof the boat This was about ten minutes before the fire. In about five minutes be took it up, and went out at tbe front door of the cabin. He did not see him again till after the fire. He was the man who told him not to be alarmed. He also saw a man run through the cabin about the time of the alarm, with his head on fire. Th...

Special Providences. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

Special Providences. One of the greatest obstacles which advocates of religious truth have to encounter is the proneness which some of the more inconsiderate of their number display in torturing every occurrence of an ordinary or extraordinary nature into the support of their particular views. They never seem to uudrstand that an unsound argument, while it may convince the thoughtless, reacts fearful I<■ against the doctrines supported by it, when sul>ected to the scrutiny of careful, intelligent readers. We observed in a recently received religious paper, published al the Start, an account of a young man who was killed by a loose rail, or " snake head," which was driven up into the car immediately under the seat. It w;is Sunday, and the young man had but a few minutes before entered the car. Thereupon this newspa|)Cr drew the moral, that as the other passengers, whose violation of the Sabbath was not voluntary, had been spared, the death of this youth was a sp...

Too Old to Learn. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

Too Old to Learn. [f there ever was a complete instance of living bagand leaning little, it is aliorded by M. Bochaa in his piifloMional career. He rained Madame Bishop's prospects in this city by striving to get Bp a Jenny Und excitement on his arrival in California, and :i Bflttwf UHWit sale of tickets at fabulous prices; and, after, her talents and popularity had redeemed the results **f that mistake, repeated the blander by a series of ontertuimnents at Miwieal Hall, when- prion were in proportion in an inverse ratio to the merits of the performance: thus making rlieir career in California unprofitable as it was unpopular. And yet. if we may create the OOflCSpoi.tlent of the Chronicle, experience has tonight the old mu-dcian nothing. That writer says :— '■ Bochaa has increased the prices to an immense rate—that is going to hurt us." Were it not for Mine.

Outrage on a Supposed American Citizen. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

Outrage on a Supposed American Citizen. Had the follow ing intelligence reached us at a sufficiently late period, we should certainly have " stopped the press to announce it." Bat, though we are ik'barrcd that privilege, we cannot restrain our indignation that the vessel containing the agent of Mine. Bishop should have been boarded by Itritish subjects off Sydney, offering " big engagt - mi nts.'' whether of a naval or military character we are unable to state, or whether the encounters were accepted or declined. 1 nstant Iy on the arrival nf this gentleman, he states that he was ' seized and placed—on the free list of the theatres!" Surely this outrage should be immediately resented and avenged by our government.

The Boot on the Other Leg. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

The Boot on the Other Leg. It is unfortunate that the lawless conduct of certain parties iv one of the Southern mining districts should have occurred cotctnporaneouslv with the receipt of the intelligence Irom Panama. If the action of the natives in New Granada was unjustifiable and cowardly, that of our countrymen in maltreating foreign miners is equally so. and we hope it will meet due punishment. Such conduct as is indicate.! in the intelligence received from the flection alluded to, cannot lie too severely reprobited. It disgraces the American name at home and abroad, and will certainly have a tendency to imperil the safety of Americans traveling in Central and South American communities. The war of races which will result from such deeds on either side will be the most terrible calamity that has ever befallen this continent ; and we regret to perceive that passing events tend so unmistakably to such a consummation.

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

NEWS OF THE WEEK. The Shasta Qsurier says of the weather in its vicinity: "The weather for the past week has been as changeable as Wall street, or as fond of variety as the frequenters of Stewart's. Winds, both good and bad, rains, hails, snows, and frequently there seemed to be a contest between all these different humors or varieties for the mastery. Tuesday and Wednesday it rained occasionally, and during both of these nights and on Thursday, the air nnd roads were both in line order. Friday, raining and hailing, and now again pleasant. We believe that, for many ye n s past, there has been a spell of rainy, disagreeable weather, about the tirst of May. So say the weatherwise, with whom we have conversed." The Turners' celebration, which commenced on Saturday evening. May ;id, continued till Tuesday. The ceremonies passed off with enthusiasm ; but an unfortunate accident occurred on Monday afternoon, in discharging a cannon, by which a Hollander named Toby and an American named Da...
