News-dealers We desire to make a few remarks in relation to this much abused , though industrious class of our population , and what we have to say we hope will be received in a kind and friendly spirit by those who , we feel assured , would not intentionally wound the feelings of any , did they but for a moment consider the disadvantages and embarrassments under which the news-dealers labor , in numbers of instances . No people rise earlier , or give greater attention . to the wants of their customers , than news-deal-ers - r while others Bleep , they are busy in gatheiing together their different bundles of papers in order to have thcin early for their customers , and oftentimes they are compelled to wait hours and hours before they have completed their stock .

A New Invention . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 14 May 1853

A New Invention . Dr . Gideon B . Smith has invented a eoutrivance for detecting spurious coin of the gold dollar stamp . It is a small box with a slit in the lid , whioh will admit the genuine coin only . If a spurious coin passes through the slit , it will not sink , because it is resisted by a weight inside superior to the leverageby which tho true coin overpoises the weig ht . And if the spurious coin is made so large that its weight equals the true coin , it will no ( pass through the aperture . Jim Stotesbury has a plan equally as good . He says he takes a gold dollar , wherever he can find one , and if the peanut man takes it for a pint of pea-nuts , and g ives him good change , he knaws its good ; bat if he don t , then he tries somebody elsel

It was the stone on which she had been leaning the night before ; she gave a wild scream and fainted ; her body , weakened as it was , was terribly shaken by this adventure , and though she still hoped some wild chance might have preserved Archie , and that it was indeed he that stood by her and spoke to her that evening , yet the awful words , / trill see you at NIGHT , for I must be dead to all but you , rang in her ear , and his hand , she remembered , was very cold . A sick thrill passed over her as she remembered this , and she at length became persuaded she had seen the spirit of her lover .. Meanwhile , she grew weaker and weaker every day . One evening she expressed a wish to visit once more the moss bank which overhung the lake . Dunstan had gone out shooting , and it was on his way home . The old servant at the manse supported her , for she was now too feeble to...
