Warlike Appearance of the Zouaves. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 18 May 1856

Warlike Appearance of the Zouaves. A letter from Paris, describing the splendid reception ol the return regiments from the Crimea, says: " When the Zouave regiments came on, I felt that I had never till then seen soldiers. They are not to be described—at least by me—with their remorseless tread, and eager, passionate faces ; their spare, firm, nervous limbs, picturesque uniforms, and looks of indomitable resolve and untiring energy—on they came, aud the vast crowd swayed and rocked backward and forward with the excess of their emotion, while the wild, ruthless notes of the Pas de Zouaves (Zouave step) rang through the air and through one's nerves simultaneously. Such music as it is, with the incessant, almost maddening roll of the innumerable drums, and the fifes which seem vicing with them."

Properly Punished. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 18 May 1856

Properly Punished. An exchange paper says that M. de Sartiges, the French Minister, has been actually banished from Washington society by the force of fashionable will. And why ? It chanced that, in his odd, fancilul way, he recently called at a party given at the residence of Senator Bayard, (of Delaware,) and entered that gentleman's parlor smoking a cigar. He was remonstrated with concerning the impropriety, and responded that it was an American prejudice against the conduct. The Senator gave dim notice to quit, and public sentiment uniting against him, he has since then absented himself from the city, save when he has had business with the State Department.

Singular Occurrence. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 18 May 1856

Singular Occurrence. In clearing up oue of the rooms at tttanwix Hall yesterday, a waiter discovered a cat so crowded into a boot, that it was with difficulty that she could be extricated. Having got her out, the next question in order was, " How did she get in ?" This was leading to a long-winded dispute, when one of the bystanders took up tbe boot, gave it a shake, and tossed a half-grown rat upon the floor. The discovery of the rat solved the riddle. The rat, to escape the cat, rushed into the boot; the cat to secure a game dinner, rushed after him, and with such force that she could not back out again. Learn wisdom from pussy, and never " go it biind," even in a good cxami.—Albany Knickerbocker.

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 deirer 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 the stars are beaming Bright ou the aaure sky. When through the fading forest Cold the wild winds sigh. Draw up thy little «*»J c .,. r.lose to the Are, and write— Writtlo me soon iv the morning.

LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 18 May 1856

LOVE. Is little Love so blind. As many bardliogs tell as? Perhaps—but I've a mind 'TIS only when he's jealous. Just see him bend his bow, When game in flocks surround, sir; If there's a golden mark, He'll hit it, I'll be bound, sir! Like other roguish boys Love often tries our feelings— Now blesses - now annoys, With hopes or sad reveallngs. Amid his pastime wild He laughs at our alarms, sir; Then like a very child Flies back into our arms, sir.

Under the strict promise of secresv, it was imparted to Patience ou her return from seeing Jacob a part of his way 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 1 expected, for thee hast been stuffy sballving art' un for a long time past. As thee dost make the bed, so thee must lie. But for my part, I'd rather live upon a crust, aud work my fingers to the bone to get it, than become the wife ot Amen Corner." " You are unjust, Patience," observed her landlady, warmly. " Thank heavnn, I beant a fool," muttered her lodger. " I will convince you thut you are," continued Martini.

Anecdote of Phoenix. The Sierra Citizen tells the following story : One evening, at the theatre, l'ha'iiix observed a man sitting Ihree 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 the disturbed person turning his head a little, J'husnix discovered his mistake—that he was not the jhtsou he took him for. Fixing his attention steadfastly on the play, and alTecting unconsciousness of the whole affair, he left the man with the cane to settle with the other lor the disturbance, who being wholly without an excuse, there was of course a ludicrous and embarrassing sceue. during all which, I'hutiix was profoundly interested in the play. At last the man with the cane asked, rather indignantly : " Didn't you tell me to punch that man with my stick ?" " Yes." " And what did you wank?" " Wanted to sec whether ssjaj would poHs.J.. im .'" About this time Squibob's head was a 'ng fo...

A Novelty in Typography. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 18 May 1856

A Novelty in Typography. The Ix'iidon Journal mentions that certain printers in that city have found that metallic plates of the thickness of ordinary sheet tin may be printed apon with usual printing type, if the plates be tirst coaled with a composition, the secret of the inventor. If sheets thus printed be afterwards subjected to a certain japanning process, an even, lustrous surface is prodtiOad, which cannot be acted ti|)oii except by a sharp ■tea* instrument, lt requires no great consideration to discover, that this invention is of a very important character. It may be applied in any instance where printed mutter is either tn l>e exhibited, or even hnndlcd. for any length of time, and may he most advantageously substituted for the hilherto mounted paper lessons.
