Discoveries by Accident. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 22 February 1873

Discoveries by Accident. Not a few discoveries in the arts and sci#«ccB have been made or suggested by aceident. The use of the pendulum, suggested by the vibrating of a chandelier in a cathedral; the power of steam, intimated by the oscillating of the lid of a teakettle; the utility of coal-gas for light, expermented upon by an ordinary tobacco-pipe of white clay; the magnifying property of the lens, stumbled upon by an ojitician’s apprentice whilo holding spectacle glasses between his thumb and linger, aro wellknown instances in proof of tho fact. Galvanism was discovered by accident. Professor Gal van i, of Bologna, in Italy, gave his name to the operation, but his wife is considered as actually entitled to the credit of the discovery. She being in bad health, some frogs were ordered for her. As they lay upon the table skinned, she noticed that their limbs became strongly convulsed when near an electrical conductor. She called her husband’s attention to the fact; he instituted a ...

How Mr. Colfax Stands. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 22 February 1873

How Mr. Colfax Stands. Mr. Colfax is behaving—to speak mildly —very injudiciously. Ho has been accused, on evidonoo on which any jury would convict him, of having perjured'himself with regard to tho roceipt of $l2OO from Oakes Ames. Now, there is only one answer to this, viz., that Mr. Colfax rocoived tho money irom somebody else, and this answer could be made, in five minutes. All he has to do is to name the man who paid it to him, and give the reason ior which it was paid; and this, to a gentleman of small income who keeps his accounts with great accuracy, as Mr. Coliax says he does his, can be a task of no difficulty. Instead of doing this, however, be went to the Senate and made an absurd demand for a fresh Committee of Investigation, though the Wilson Committee was still sitting then allowed Oakes Ames to go home, and said be would produce his defence when Oakes Ames came back, made some rambling observations about “looking over his papers,” and then started off' to attend reli...

England Threatened. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 22 February 1873

England Threatened. If a recent article in the New Prussian Cross Oaeette means anything at all, it means mischief to England. In order to understand it in tho latter sense, it is only necessary to suppose that it has equal significance with former articles in thcolfieinl or semi-official German press, couched in similar terms and treating of kindred topics. The subject of tho article is ‘ * Honolulu, Delagoa Bav, and Khiva,” and its purport is this: England has ho right to say anything against the acquisition of the .Sandwich Islands by tho United States, against the purchase of a position in South Africa by Germany, or agaiust the Russian Khiva expedition. A purpose is ascribed to the British Government of attempting to reconquer its old position in Europe, sneering allusions uro made to tho defeat of England in the Block sea, Alabama and San Juan controversies, doubts arc thrown on tho naval power of Great Britain, and “North America, Germany and Russia” are referred to as “ now ...

Measuring the Baby. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 22 February 1873

Measuring the Baby. We measured riotous baby Against the cottage wall: A lily grew at the threshold, And the boy was just as tall. A royal tiger lily, With spots of purple and gold. And a heart like a jewelled chalice, The fragrant dew to hold. Without the blackbird whistled, High up in the old roof trees; And to and fro at the window The rod rose rocked her bees ; And the wee pink lists of the baby Were never a moment still, Snatching at shine and shadow That danced at the lattice-sill. ****** Ah me! in a darkened chamber, With the sunshine shut away, Through tears that fell like bitter rain, We measured the baby to-day. And the little bare feet ihat were dimpled, And sweet as a budding rose, Lay side by side together In the bush of a long repose, Up from tho dainty pillow, White as tliorisen dawn, A fair littlo face lay smiling With the light of heaven thereon; And the dear little hands, like rose-leaves Dropped from a rose, lav still, Never to catch at tho sunshine That crept to ...

Prussian Brutality, [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 22 February 1873

Prussian Brutality, Somo short timo ago, we published in these columns one of the most painful incidents of the Prussian occupation of France that it has ever been our expert ence to relate. For tho honor of humanity, wo had hoped that tho facts as stated by us might by-and-hy provo to ho overdrawn, but wo have now the particulars of this painful tragedy which was enacted at Vaux in the Ardennes, and find the story is not only absolutely true in every particular, but more shocking if possible than as related by us with the broad details. The facts as we gave them were the following : A Prussian solder had been killed, and m revenge forty villagers had been shut up in the cliursh and ordered to select three of their number for execution. Tho victims were selected by vote instead of lot, and tho widow of one of them claimed compensation from the survivors. The story told before the court (which we aro indebted to the Pall Mall Gazette for).may be thus brielly toldln October, 1870, Vau...

INSURANCE DEPARTMENT. An Eloquent Sermon, [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 22 February 1873

INSURANCE DEPARTMENT. An Eloquent Sermon, We find in a New Zealand newspaper the report of an address about Life Insurance recently delivered at Westport, N. Z.,by the clergyman of the parish, the Rev. Air. Souter. He said that ho considered it was his duty os a clergyman to sympathize with the temporal concerns of the people as well as with their spiritual wants. He had been a clergyman for ten years, and bad witnessed many a case of dLstress, both among the members of his own profession of the ministry and the several congregations with which he had been connected. Again and again had heads of families been taken away, leaving no provision for their wives and’children. ho doubt kind neighbors and friends had gathered round the widows and orphans and helped them, but had the husband and father himself exercised a little foresight and self-denial had he but insured his life, even to a small amount, no such charity would have been needed. He referred to the cose of a clergyman whose ...

THE REAT AND THE IDEAL. The author of the following, Frances Erown, is an Irish poetess, ami has been blind from early childhood. She has written some beautiful things, but none moro beautilul than this: — Tis long ngol we have toiled and traded. Have lost and fretted, have pained and grlevea, >ince last the hght of that fond faith faded: But friends—in its day—what we believed. The poet's dream and the peasant's stories— Oh, never will time that trust renew I Tet they were old on the earth before us, And lovely tales—had they been true! Some spake of homos In the green wood hidden, Where ago was fearless and youth ' v ? s ' I Where none at life’s board seemed guests unbidden, But men had years like the forest tree. Goodlv and fair, and full of summer. As lives went by when the world was new, Ere ever the angel steps passed Oh, dreamers and bards, If that weic true. Some told of a proud and stainless standard Of hearts that only In death grew cold. Whose march was ever in...
