A Rhyme for the Times.

Tell how Columbia's base-born sons The noble godlike form reviled, And daughters of brave women won From haters of the Child* Such honors as arc given to those Who fawn upon their country's foes. The Union Deadf The Union Dead? No ! wounded, 'twill survive the shock Of all its foes, and lift its head Sublimely as the rock O'er which the maddened brine doth sweep, When stormy voices stir the deep! Yes, God be thanked! though traitors mix With patriots in bold array, The trusty hearts of " Seventy-Six " Arc not all passed away !

Atlantic Items. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 25 February 1860

Atlantic Items. New York, Jan. 24. The Tribune's "Washington correspondence says of the Harper's Ferry Investigation : No testimony has been before the Committee of Investigation in any way implicating Republicans with John Brown's raid. Mr. Realf states emphatically that the movement was known to but few persons, as Brown was a secretive man and kept his own counsels. None who accompanied him to Harper's Ferry, but Kagi, was informed of the plan. He also says that Brown and those in his confidence were radical abolitionists, who denounced the Republicans. When Senator Wilsen made his speech in Lawrence, Kansas, they assailed him, for failing to approach their standard of duty. Mr. Wilson appeared before the Committee and stated he had written to Ur. Howe, of Boston, for the original letter which had been referred to by Realf. That letter was written in May, 1858, and substantially tells Dr. Howe that information had reached him to the effect that Brown intended using the arms furni...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 25 February 1860

Between the first Monday in March and the first Monday in August, in each year, the County Assessor is required to ascertain, by diligent enquiry and examination, the names of all tax-payers and the value of all property within his County ; and upon the faithful manner in which he discharges his duties depend, in a great measure, the healthy condition oi its affairs, and ability to keep faith with its creditors. We therefore conceive it to be within our province, as public journalists, to offer such suggestions as seem to us proper, for the consideration of the worthy gentleman who occupies that responsible position in this County. It has become too prevalent a custom in this State, for Assessors to be general in their assessments —that is to say, to assess all property of the same description at the same value. This is certainly an error; for it is very evident that one acre of land may be ten times more valuable than another ; or that one horse may be worth five hundred dollors, w...

An order was entered upon the record that a Special Session of the Board be held on the 12th day of March next. The Board also made the following order: "Whereas, a writ of Mandamus has issued out of the District Court of the 13th Judicial District of...

From Arizona. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 25 February 1860

From Arizona. By the politeness of Mr. Stueben, of Wells, Fargo & Cos. Express, we have received the Arizonian of the 16th inst., from which we extract the following items of news. A correspondent writing from Barclay's Fort under date of Feb. 5th says: "A party of citizens and friendly Indians from Abicae, numbering about fifty all told, have just returned from a retaliatory expedition (on their own book.) against the Navajoes, bringing with them one hundred and fifty horses and mules and twenty-two captives, as the fruits of their short excursion. The party sustained no loss. How many of the Navajoes were killed, my informant could not tell; but assured me I might rely on the facts as above stated. Three mule teams belonging to Messrs. Moore & Reese, Boyce & Connclley, and Charles Kitchens, left here about one month since for the States; and there is a rumor afloat that the mules of one or all, have been taken by the Comanches. The rumor is base...
