Anecdote of Mr. Webster. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 2 April 1853
Anecdote of Mr. Webster. A correspondent of the Rochester American adds the following to the host of anecdotes told of the great statesman, which hit» decease has called forth— When Mr Webster was Secretary of State, st&gt;me years ago, under another administration tbi*n that of Mr Fillmore, he wrote to oue of tho proprietors of the Astor House in N. York, saying that he would roach that house on such a day. and begged that nome of bis friends should be invited to diue with liim on the same evening. There were about twenty or so at the table, and Mr Webster seemed wearied by his travel, and speaking bu: little, if at all; plunged into a darksome sort of reverie, not well calculated t.o enliven hi u friends, This at length became so apparent, and the situation of all f.o unpleasant, that one of the company urged upon a very distinguished man present, a warm friend of Mr W., to get him into conversation lie only needed to be jogged to become as lively as they wished.

There's no sucli Word as Fall. •BTCELSIOR." • Ho! toiler of the moody brow ! Ho! youth of the downcast eye! Why shouldst thou think of sinking now. Why heaves that bitter sigh ? Come, coin thy thoughts in Hope's bright mould. And light that cheek so pale: Fer youths like thee, so young so bold, There's no such word as fail! Art crossed in love? Let beauty frown; Turn thou to surer game; Turn to the virtuous deed's renown, And earn a deathless name; Turn to the works of god-like men; Hoist up a daring sail; And if thou stumblest, try again— There's no such word aa fail! The Spanish voyager crossed the sea To seek another world : And, sickening in despondency, Ilis weary sails he furled But taking heart he wended on Till land birds filled the gale; Columbus saw his work was done— There's no such word as fail! Thousands who rose from want and gloom, Are now in grandeur laid, With storied marbles o'er their tomb. In many a minster's shade; "Whilst noble youths, with bc-ndedhead, Think, ...
Interesting Discovery in Persia. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 2 April 1853
Interesting Discovery in Persia. A mixed commission which embraces .England, Russia, and Persia, is now engaged in tablishing the boundary line between Persia and Turkey, about which there has long been .difficulties. Col. Williams, well known to many Americans, and a man of character and talent, is the English Oommisjpner, and on the authority of a scientific American writing from Paris, the Boston Chronicle relates the following:— In the prosecution of this work the Commissioners have come upon the remains of the ancient palace of Shushan, mentioned in the sacred books of Esther and .Daniel, and the tomb j of Daniel the prophet. The locality answers i to the received tradition of its position, and the i internal evidence arising from its correspondence with the description of the place recorded in the sacred history, amounts almost to demonstration. The reader can turn to Esther, chap. 1, v. 6; there he will read of a pavement "of red and blue, and white and black marble in that p...
American Genius. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 2 April 1853
American Genius. The chances of life are various: some men, possessing talent without tact, never bring their mental wares to any market; others, possessing lead mental culture and more availabilty, never seem to be at a loss for occupation. Such are constantly employed, well remunerated, and are sure to make their ms rk upon the times. Could Edward Everett make such a fortune with all his intellectual cultivation and acquisition of sound knowledge as has Harrison YVinan3, by his ingenuity and tactl We think not. The case to which we refer, is not a solitary one ; the past forty years teem with the like, and it speaks well for American genius. We have in our mind, at this writing, similar instances, but this one will suffice to illustrate our remarks. Harrison Winans left Baltimore a few years ago, a poor boy, but with an improved mind, acquired at a country school, with genius, ambition and enterprise He worked in Europe to the head of machinists acd engineers, and became a leading...

Extravagant Speech. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 2 April 1853
Extravagant Speech. The late Bishop Hedding used to tell an incident iu his episcopal career,strikingly illustra? ting the despotic power of long indulged habit. At one of the conferences where he presided, a young - preacher was charged with indulging too great an excess in exaggeration. He was not said to be guilty of positive falsehood, but superlatives flowed so .freely from his tongue, that truth had all the semblance and frequently did all the mischief of a lie. The young man was publicly admonished by the chair. He stood up in the presence of his brethren, ' and the Bishop, with great kindness pointed «ut the evil resulting from the habit. Alter fearing him through, the accused, with tears requested permission to say a few words. He commenced by a candid acknowledgement ot his fault, and thanked the Bishop for his admonition. Turning to his brethren in the mmistrv, he assured them of his determination to conquer his besetting infirmity. "I regret it as much as any of you. I h...
Second Sight. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 2 April 1853
Second Sight. If our young friend who is in the haoit takr ing a "social glass," will look for about ten minutes in the bottom of his next glass, he will see the sugar form itself into the shape of a middle aged man in the gutter., with a Moated idiotic expression, carbuncled nose, and clotfces dropping off from rottenness; and if he will then follow the back track, he will find to hia horror that the fallen one originated from th© boots then on lys own feet! The Tennessee is so shivered that she cannot hold together long. Almost every seam is open. And when a wave rolls up and strikes her the impression to one standing on the dock is that she will go all to pieces. The furniture isjsaved, having been placed on the shore, iho duplicate machinery is also taken out of her and preparations were making to save the rest. * r [Transcript. Thackeray, in one of his lectures paid the following compliment to the English language. Said he, "It is the only language that treedom is permitted to ...
