POETRY. -LINES- ON PASSING THE GRAVE OF MY SISTER. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 27 August 1846

POETRY. -LINES- ON PASSING THE GRAVE OF MY SISTER. BY FLINT. " There is something in these stanzas, to us, inexpressibly pathetic. and mournful ; they are indeed 'beautiful,' and such as any of our poets might well be proudl of."—Edinborough Review. On yonder shore, on yonder shore, Now verdant with the depths of shade, Beneath the white armed sycamore, There is a little infant laid. Forgive this tear—a brother weeps— 'Tis there the faded flow'ret sleeps. She sleeps alone, she sleeps alone, Ami auinmer's forests o'er her wave ; And sighing winds at autmnu moan Around the little slranger's grave, A* though they nnuuiiued ut the fate Of one so lone mu\ denolate. In sounds that seem like Sorrow's own, Their funeral dirges faimly creep; Then deep'ning to an organ lone, In all their solemn cadence sweep, And pour unheard along llie wild, Tlieir dc*eil unthcin o'er a child. She came anil passed. Can I t..i»ct, How we whose hearts bad bailed her birth, Ere three nuttimnid suns bad Pet, Con...

MISCELLANY. From Headley's Letters from Italy. ITALIAN AND AMERICAN WOMEN. ITEMS-BY THE SCISSOR EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 27 August 1846

MISCELLANY. From Headley's Letters from Italy. ITALIAN AND AMERICAN WOMEN. ITEMS-BY THE SCISSOR EDITOR. The following piece (from Blackwood's Mugazine) somewhat desultory, but amusing, forms the introductory part of an article entitled "How to build a house and LIVE IN IT." We're a true Bnotinn people after all : that's a fact. We may talk about Attic art and Doric strength ; but in our habits, no less than in our climate, we certainly belong to the wrong side of the hills. We're a stuffing and guzzling race, if ever there was one ; we doat on great hunks of meat and flagons of strong drink : and as truly as every Paddy has got a hot potato somewhere in his head, making him the queer, mad chap he is, so have we got a national brain compounded of pudding, and beef, and sausages, turning us into that stubborn and stolid people vvhich we know ourselves to be. Sidney Smith expressed the fundamental idea of the English nation to a T, when he said that the ultimate end of all good governm...

SELECTED. Unexpected Discoveries. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 3 September 1846

SELECTED. Unexpected Discoveries. There are two sayings—the one derived from divine, the other from human authority—the truth of which is continually forced upon us by experience. They are these:—" A prophet is not without honor, except in his own country;" and " No man is a hero to his valet-de-chambre."— " Familiarity breeds contempt," is also a proverb to the same effect; and they all three bear upon the tendency in our natures to undervalue the talents, and the claims to distinction, of those with whom we are closely connected and associated; and on our incapability to believe that they, whom we have always considered as our equals only, or perhaps as our inferiors, can be to the rest of the world objects of admiration and respect. No one was more convinced of the truth of these sayings than Darcy Pennington, the only child of a pious and virtuous couple, who thought him the best of sons, and one of the first of geniuses; but, as they were not able to persuade the rest of the fa...

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 3 September 1846

CALIFORNIA. The St. Louis Missouri Reporter of the 1st ult., has the following late and interesting letter from California. It gives the clearest and fairest account of the peculiar advantages and disadvantages of California as a country to settle and live in that we have met with. We have drawn attention to some of its statements by putting them in italics. He gives a plain and distinct account of that country, which will benefit those intending to emigrate thither. The face of the Country.—l Can only describe the great valley of the Sacramento, from personal observation, and whatever I may say of the remainder is from information. The valley is about 300 miles long, from 100 to 200 miles wide, crossed by several pretty large rivers, many of them navigable to the foot of the mountain; and from that up, the water tumbles from rock to rock, affording neither navigation nor valleys for cultivation. On all the rivers from the mountain to the mouth, there are large bottoms from one-half...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 3 September 1846

Thk Plainest Kind or Talk.—The Ohio Statesman, the locofoco state paper at Columbus, handles Polk's veto on the river and harbor bill after a fashion of which the following extracts will give some faint idea : " The message in which the president supports his views, is a shallow performance, vulgar in its language, ridiculous in its false logic, and paltry as the treatment of a thesis by some hair-splitting and wire-drawing schoolman of the middle ages, who thought himself a great man, because, like all small characters, he had mistaken cunning for wisdom.— It is, however, quite worthy the man whose imbecility has been so unhappily displayed on the Oregon question—first uttering boasts of the loudest kind, and then sneaking off to cover when the enemy's bay was faintly heard in the distance. There is a remarkable similarity in the president's conduct on these two subjects. As he mouthed and raved about our " clear and unquestionable " right to the whole of Oregon, like unto one of N...

THE TARIFF.—MR. WEBSTER'S SPEECH [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 3 September 1846

THE TARIFF.—MR. WEBSTER'S SPEECH We said in our paper of last week that there are two things in the tariff act, one respecting its fundamental principle, and the other relating to one of its peculiar provisions, on which Mr. Webster's arguments, drawn from facts, and his reasoning from things well known to those less known, amount to such full demonstration of the impolicy and injustice of the act, that they ought to be kept prominently before the public. The fundamental principle is that of duties ud valorem by a foreign valuation. Much pains has been taken by some of the conductors of the democratic press, to show that this principle was urged by Mr. Clay, as the basis of his revenue system, projected in 1842. But the attempt is fraudulent, and unworthy of any partisan who values his reputation for honesty. Mr. Clay proposed a home valuation to be fixed so far as possible in detail by the act itself, as the basis, and specific duties to be laid upon every article so valued, as the...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 3 September 1846

The Degree conferred on Prof. Morse, by Yale College, was not that of L.L. D. exactly, but a degree suited to his peculiar discoveries, and more honorable perhaps than the other. The phraseology was, " Naturae Artisque Legum Doctor ;" and it will be indicated, we suppose, by these initials. Capt. Bowers, of brig Eliza Burgess, which arrived at Boston on Saturday evening, states that the water in the Gulf Stream was warmer than he had ever before known, the thermometer being at 86 degrees above zero, as far north as latitude 37. The Canadians are not pleased with the new Free Trade measures of the British Parliament.— They were enabled under the old Corn Laws to export their wheat to England at a small duty, while other countries paid a heavy one. By the new law all nations are on the same footing. The Canadian canals, made at an enormous expense, will lose their custom to a great degree, as the wheat which formerly passed through them to be shipped from Montreal will be shipped from...

HARVARD UNIVERSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 3 September 1846

HARVARD UNIVERSITY. The following list of gentlemen who received the honorary degree of Master of Arts at the Commencement last week, was not contained in our account of the transactions of the day : namely— Mr. Nathaniel Barker, of Bellevue, Georgia ; Col. John Milton Fessenden, of Boston ; and the Rev. James Means, Principal of the Lawrence Academy, Groton. Sixty-five gentlemen who had completed their terms at the Law School, received the degree of Bachelor of Laws (L.L. B ) Twenty-nine of this number belong to Massachusetts, and the rest to the States of Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, Alabama, Michigan, Arkansas, Texas, and the District of Columhia. The whole number of deaths among those who have received degrees, after the close of the academic course of study, which have come to our knowledge since the catalogue was printed in 1845, is thirty-three ; a number less than the annual average.
