FUN, FACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. Curious Fraud or Genius.—lt is recorded of an ancient king of Fgypt— one of the Ptolemies— that he employed a celebrated architect to build a magnificent lighthouse, for the benefit of shipping and ordered an inscription in honor of himself to be engraved on it. The architect, it is said thoosb inwardly coveting the honor of such a record for himself, was obliged to comply ; but made the inscription on a plaster resembling stone, but or a perishable substance. In the course of years this crumbled away, and the next generation saw another inscription, recording the name—not of the king, but of the architect, which had been secretly engraved on the durable stone below. •a. A r, Ha , ppy Retort.—When the English and the French ambassadors like ned their kings to the sun and the moon. Or. Franklin compared Washington to Joshua who commanded the sun and moon to stand still, and they obeyed him. Quite as good a thing has been said by the Circassian hero, Schamyl. When...

mSCTXIANEOUS. A MEED OF JUST PRAISE. THE INGRATITUDE OF MAN TO HIS FELLOW MAN is so often met with in life that testimonials, prompted by the finer feeling.* or the heart, are oases in the lite or those who sacrifice their best days in philanthropic devotion to the alleviation of the ills of frail mortality.

LITTLE CHARLIE-A LAMENT. T. B. ALDRICH. O Sunshine, making golden spots t'pon the carpet at my feet— The shadows of the coming flowers! The phantoms of forget-me-nots And roses red and sweet 1— How can you seem so full of joy, Anil we so sad at heart and sore?— Angel of death ! again thy wings Are folded at our door ! We can but yearn through length of days For something lost, we fancied ours ; We'll miss thee, darling, when the Spring Has touched the world to flowers! For thou wast like that dainty month Which strews the violets at its feet; Thy life was slips of golden sun And silver tear-drops braided sweet! For thou wast light and thou wast shade. And thine were sweet capricious ways .— Now lost In purple languors, now No bird in ripe red summer days Was half as wild as thou .' 0 little presence ! everywhere We find some touching trait of tnea— A pencil-mark upon the wall That " naughty" hands made thoughtlessly; And broken toys around the house— Where he has left them they have...

The lawyer bc_ran tapping his head, fancying that, at last, he had bit up. .11 a clue to the mystery that had so long puzzled him. "Pear me! ha! that may explain it Pray, my an> man, have you any idea what Mr. Walter Herbert wanted with three thousand pounds a few months before he died ?" "No, sir," replied Martha, dropping him a curtsey, v unless it was to spend it." The agent regarded her fixedly, to ascertain whether the answer had h<t'n dictated by simplicity or cunning, whilst the little half-starved clerk bit the end of his pen, to prevent the smile he could not repress. Convinced there wus nothing to be learned from the woman, his mind naturally reverted to the not less interesting point of what could be got for her. "Whilst Sir Harry lived," he observed, "he was the master—free to do as he pleased—make ducks and drakes of the property. The new possessor has nothi...

The Last of the Astecs. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

The Last of the Astecs. It is a curious story, but one quite prevalent in Mexico, that in the interior, between the city of Mexico and the Pacific ocean, surrounded by inaccessible mountains, with but one pass, narrow and watchfully guarded, for ingress and egress, there exist a people highly civilized, and who carefully preserve the religious habits, language and civilization which prevailed ere Tenochtittan was subdued by the heroic Cortes, and an ancient race swept from the fair empire of Mexico. The inhabitants of this mysterious avenue are said to be a brave people, and so jealous of their mountain home, that no adventurer who had once penetrated ite_ fortresses was ever known to return. It is also hinted by travelers, that " hidden in deep valleys of the Cordilleras, are said to be the remains of a highly civilized people, whose vast monuments and exquisitely finished sculptures, after perhaps a thousand years' desolation, are still fouud in every part of Yucatan, and even as ...

Barnum's Masterpiece. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 11 May 1856

Barnum's Masterpiece. Barnum has performed many wonders, but the greatest of all is the following : It consists in nothing less than passing down the Niagara cataract in a vessel constructed for this purpose. The vessel is a ball of gutta percha, thirty feet in diameter, supported in its interior by hoops, rings of steel, and wood. Strings of gutta percha, coming from four points of the rings, meet in the centre of the sphere, where they are fixed to a coat of mail ol the same material. This is so fixed that a man buckled in it hangs, supported by the four strings, safe in the middle of the ball. At the lower end of the ball, where the lower (dirt of the mail is directed, some lead is put, so that swimming in the water the head sidewili be turned upwards. On this upper, part there is a hole which may be opened or shut by the person in the interior. The hall is so strong as to sustain, without danger, the shock of the fall. On account of its size it cannot sink, nor can the person bu...
