ORIGINAL STORY. [WRITTEN FOR THE CHRONICLE.] Bread Cast on the Waters. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 27 August 1846

ORIGINAL STORY. [WRITTEN FOR THE CHRONICLE.] Bread Cast on the Waters. BY CAROLINE F. ORNE. CONCLUDED. "Where's Mary?" said Willoughby to his sister, when he came home, towards the close of a pleasant summer afternoon. " I have sent her to her room, brother, to stay by herself a while." " Why, what has she done ?" said Willoughby, looking astonished. " She acts singularly sometimes, you know, Willoughby, and this afternoon, there came an old man here with berries to sell. He was quite old and feeble, and Matty invited him to sit down in the kitchen, and rest a little, and gave him some cold meat. She asked me if I would buy some berries of him, and I told her she might take what she wanted. I sent the money down by Mary, but the moment she looked into the kitchen, or even before, I should think, she came flying back to me, with the money, and stood before me pale and trembling, saying in a low voice, 'He will kill me ! He will kill me !' " I tried to make her tell me what she meant,...

[From the Boston ...] MR. WISE AND THE SLAVER. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 27 August 1846

[From the Boston Whig.] MR. WISE AND THE SLAVER. "Your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams." If the above quotation is not correct. Mr. Editor please make it so. Taking it as it stands, I suppose I must call the following sketch a dream, as I have long ranked myself among old men.— It may come true; there is nothing in the nature of things to prevent it. The premises are facts, and the conclusion is likely to follow as a natural consequence. The scene lies about half a day's sail from the coast of Cuba. Day is just dawning upon the deck of one of our frigates, returning from the Bra- zilian station, and upon the wide waste of waters, gently undulating beneath the mild trade wind.— On board the ship is the Hon. Henry A. Wise, of Virginia, our late minister plenopotentiary to the court of Brazil. He has been recalled by his government a little sooner than he wished ; but he has not quite given the death-blow to the African slave-trade, and is anxious to si...

The Electric Gun. - The annexed accoount of this immensely destructive war weapon, is given in a recent London paper: lt is a small carriage running upon a pair of wheels, and having a third wheel attached, by which it traverses with ease and steadiness. The barrel for discharging the bullets is over the body of the machine, and admirably adapted for taking aim at any altitude, so that a pigeon's flight could be followed in the air. lt is supplied with balls by two chambers, one of which is fixed, the other moveable. The Iatter is called the volley chamber, and can be made to contain any number of balls. The model contains but fifty balls, but if constructed to hold 200, from 1000 to 1200 it is stated could be discharged in a minute ; and so great is the force with which the balls were sent a distance of forty yards, that a 1-1/2 inch plank was penetrated at every shot, the balls flattening, and in some instances, were scattered into fragments. The rollers are shot off in quick succ...

THE TARIFF.-MR. WEBSTER'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 27 August 1846

THE TARIFF.-MR. WEBSTER'S SPEECH. Nothing can be more discouraging to those who are concerned in mercantile, manufacturing and mechanical employments, than sudden fluctuations and great changes in the policy of the government, relating to duties imposed for revenue, as they affect those several employments. The concurrence of the people in this sentiment has appeared to be so general for ihe last four years, and the business of the country has advanced so prosperously under the operation of the tariff of 1842, that a radical change, as we believe, was neither expected nor wished for by the great mass of citizens belonging to the political party now in the ascendant. There is a signal difference too belween that tariff and the one which is to take its place, in regard to the circumstances of their enactment, which may and will bring distrust upon the latter. The tariff of 1842 was not enacted by a strict party vote. The compromise act had fallen to its lowest rate of duties, not yiel...

THE LONG POND AQUEDUCT. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 27 August 1846

THE LONG POND AQUEDUCT. The commencement of this great and long meditated work, is the beginning of a memorable era in the history of Boston. It took place on Thursday last, at Wayland, on the eastern shore of the upper end of the pond, with appropriate ceremonies. In addition to the city authorities, who were present officially, a large number of invited guests were witnesses of the celebration, and partakers of its festivities. The Mayor of Boston, Josiah Quincy, Jr., together with the City Council, was addressed by Nathan Hale, Esq., chairman of the Water Commissioners, and the Mayor was invited to commence the work. Before the manual operation, he made a very appropriate address to the auditory, displaying his usual and well known versatility, with that mingling of good humor which makes all who listen pleased wiih him and wiih one another. He lhen wielded the spade which was manufactured for the occasion, dug the first spade full of earth, and deposited it in a wheel-borrow. He...

Yale College.—Professor Woolsey has been elected to the Presidency of this institution, in place of Dr. Day, resigned. Rev. Noah Porter, Jr. of this town, has also been elected, by the Corporation of the same College, Clark Professor of Moral Philosophy and Metaphysics Mr. Porter's Society here, as well as our citizens generally, will regret to have him leave them. His appointment is, we believe, quite unexpected to all concerned. This Professorship is a new one, established under a fund given twenty-four years since by Sheldon Clark, Esq., of Oxford, Conn., and which by the terms of the donation was to accumulate 24 years before need. At the same meeting the Corporation established two other new Professorships—of Agriculture and Animal and Vegetable Physiology, founded on the donation of $5000 from John T. Norton of Farmington, Ct. to promote the study of Agricultural Chemistry. The son of the donor, John Pitkin Norton, Esq. who recently took the premium of the Royal Agricultural S...
