NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 18 May 1856

NEWS OF THE WEEK. _On Thursday afternoon, as Jas. King of Wm. was turning the corner of Washington and Montgomery streets, he was met by Jas. P. Casey, editor of tbe San■tsy fat net, who, accosting him, asked if he war armed, and immediately drew a pistol and shot -im in the breast. King exclaimed " I am shot!" and staggered into the of bee of the Pacific Express Co., where he was promptly cared for. Meanwhile, Casey was taken to the stationhouse, where an excited crowd soon followed him. By the exertion of tbe officers, however, he was afterwards conveyed to the county jail, on Broadway, in spite of the efforts of the crowd. Here a large concourse of people soon congregated, in the highest state of excitement The brother of Mr. King addressed the crowd in the following terms: " Gentlemen and Fellow Citizens: I have but little to say about this matter. My opinion of it is that it is a cool, premeditated and cowardly murder, by tbe band ot a d—d Sing Sing convict, and by a plan of 't...

GENERAL GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 18 May 1856

GENERAL GOSSIP. * * A Georgia editor lately attended a con cert given by Porodi, assisted by Strakosch and Leonardi. Hear him: " Parodi certainly has * very fine voice, and some of her lower notes intonations were surpassingly sweet and music*'; but heavens 1 save us from her unearthly squall ft "d screech, when she is putting on the double eJ (ras of her high ones. To those of a more refined »ste than we lay claim to, it may have been delectably musical and delightfully interesting; but to our unsophisticated and unmusical year, (so it reads, we presume the critic wrote ear,) they sounded more like the screech of a locomotive mingled with the screams of an infuriated panther, than like music. Gallantry and a desire to have a fashionable taste, goaded us on to be hugely pleased, but we couldn't manage to be pleased with tbe squalls, no how it could be fixed." * * Education iv Austria is curiously illustrated by the following, which we take from an English paper : "At the last weekly...

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 18 May 1856

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. Cookery and Curiosity—During Lent the French clergy are of course expected to eat no meat. At a splendid dinner given by the Legate of Avignon to the Prior of Chartoux, a superb fish cooked to perfection, and likely to have tempted the Pope himself, had he been present, was handed to the prior. He helped himself, and was on the eve of eating, when one of the brothers said to him, My brother do not touch that; it is not maigre. I went into the kitchen, and I saw things there that would make yon shudder; the sauce that you fancy is made from carrots and onions, is made from ham and rabbits." "My brother, you talk too much, and are too curious," replied the prior; " the kitchen is not your place, and curiosity is a grievous sin." Good in Everything.—Let us thank God for imparting unto us poor weak mortals the inestintable blessing of vanity. How many half-witted votaries of the arts—poets, painters, actors, musicians—live upon this food, and scarcely any other! If ...

WRITE OFTEN. [Cut out the following and place it in the next letter yon write to a dear friend. A mora appropriate poem for such service was never written.] Write to me very often, Write to me very soon— Letters to me are dearer Than loveliest flowers in June. They are affection's torches Lighting of friendship's lamp— Flitting around the heart-strings. Like fire-flies in the damp. Write to me very often. Write in the joyous morn Or at the close of evening, When all the day is gone. Then while th* stars are beaming Bright on the asure sky. When through the fading forest Cold the wild winds sigh. Draw up thy little table rinse to the are, and write— W?H".om,s«nin.h«m^n, ( Or write to me late at nlgni.

Under the strict promise of secresv, it was imparted to Patience on her return from seeing Dacnb a part of his war home. There was more prudence, perhaps, than genuine confidence in the confession, seeing that it was impossible the preparations could be carried on so secretly that she would not obtain an inkling. " Well," said the girl, in her usual honest, straightforward manner, "it is little more than I expected, for thee bast been shillyshallying wi' un for a long time past. As thee dost make' the bed, so thee must lie. But for mv part, I'd rather live upon a crust, and work my fingers to the bone to get it, than become the wife ol Amen Corner."

Anecdote of Phoenix. The Sierra Citizen tells the following story : One evening, at the theatre, Phoenix observed a man sitting three seats in front, whom he thought he knew, and requested a stranger sitting next to him to punch the other individual with his cane. The polite stranger did so, and tbe disturbed person turning his head a little. Phoenix discovered his mistake—that he was not the jicrson he took him for. Fixing his attention steadfastly on the play, and affecting unconsciousness of the whole affair, he left the man with the cane to settle with the other lor the disturbance, who beiug wholly without an excuse, there was of course a ludicrous and embarrassing soeue. during all which.

The enptain went to the keeper, and demanded what his friend had been swindled out of. " I'll give yon," said the captain " until I get my boat ready to go to hand over the money, and then if it doesn't come, the house shall." True to his word, just before the boat started, on shore he went again, accompanied by a large gang of deck hands bearing the largest cable the steamer |KMses«>d.
