Tlio Influence of Home. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 7 May 1853

Tlio Influence of Home. 1 know of no passage in clasrieul literature more beautiful or affecting than that where Xenophon, in his Anabasis, describes tho effect produced on the remnant of the tun thousand Greeks, when, after passing through dangers wit bolt number, they at length usoeudud a sacred mountain, and from its peak onught si«ht of tho sen. Dashing their bucklers, with a hymn of Joy they rushed tumultously forward. Some wept with the fulness of their delirious pleasnre, others laughed, and more foil on their knees and blessed that broad ocean. Across its blue water?, libe floating seabirds, the memorials of their happy homes came and funned their weary sou Is. All the perils they had encountered. alt the companions they had b -f, all the miseries they had endured, were in an iuatnnt forgotten, and nought wag with thorn lmt the gentle phantoms or post and fqfeu-e joys.

SHAWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 7 May 1853

SHAWLS. Ihe passion for shawls among all women'everywhere is remarkable. In one country, the shawl may flow from the head, like a veil, in another it is knitted around the loins like a aash, in yet another it is swathed around the body for a petticoat. Wherever worn at all it is the pet article of dress. From a time remoto beyond computation, the sheep of Cashmere have been chorished on their hills, and the goats .of Thibet on their plain?, and the camels' of the steppes, to furnish materials for the choicest shawls. From time immemorial the patterns which we know so well have been handed down as half sacred traditions through a Hindoo ancestry, which puts even Welsh pedigrees to shame. For thousands of years have the bright dyes, which are the despair of our science and art, beeh glittering in India looms, in those primitive pits under the palm tree where the whimsical patterns grow like the wild flowers springing from the soil. For thousands of years have eastern potentates made p...

Clipper Sliips. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 7 May 1853

Clipper Ships. Some persons suppose that clippers are a very modern invention. This is true only so far as relates to clipper ships of colossal proportions. Clipper schooners, brigs, and ships of reasonable size, have been common during the whole of the present century, and some tolerably quick passages have been made long before gold was discovered in profusion in California or Australia. One of the most remarkable instances of rapid sailing, several consecutive passages, which lives in our recollection is the case of the clipper brig " John Gilpin," of Baltimore. This vessel, which seemed to have emulated the fleetness of its namesake,left Baltimore in 1832, and arrived at Batavia after a passage of eighty two days; proceeded thence to Canton in eleven days; from Canton to Manilla in 5 days; from Manilla through the straits of Sunda, round south of New Holland, to latitude 48 or 50 to Valparaiso in 85 days; and from Valparaiso to Lima, in 5 days 17 hours, making an aggregate of 34...

Active Mediocrity. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 7 May 1853

Active Mediocrity. The Louisville Courier in an article on the "Reign of Mediocrity," draws a picture of one man of eminence contending against another and active littleness slipping in between them and snatching the prize for which they both contended, and illustrates it thus: ' How has it, been but thus at several national conventions? How but thus at the recent legislative contest in lowa, which resulted in sending G. W. Jones back to the (J. S. Senate, f r another term of six years? Look at the mental calibre of the other representative from lowa, in the Senate; at that of the representative in the same body from Wisconsin, and from almost any of the southwestern States.— How instantaneausly is it to be seen that memediocrity reigns! and how irresistibly is one disposed to exclaim, when he goes back to the times of the active service of such men as Webster, Clay, Calhoun, Buchanan, llayne, McDuffie, Benton, and Corwin, "There were giants in those days!"

Tlic Scotch Thistle. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 7 May 1853

Tlic Scotch Thistle. The origin of the national badge is thus handed down by tradition: When the Danes invaded Scotland it was deemed unwarlike to attack an enemy in the darkness of night, instead of a pitched battle by day; but on one occasion the invaders resolved to avail themselves of stratagem; and in order to prevent their tramp from being heard.they marched barefoot, They had thus neared the Scottish force unobserved, when a Dane unluckily stepped upon a superbly prickled thistle, and uttered a cry of pain, which discovered the assailants to the Scots, who ran to their arms and defeated the foe with great slaughter. The thistle was immediately adopted us the badge of Scotland. bill is before the New York Senate, appropriating $50 to defray the expenses of eaoh colored inhabitant of that State, above ten years of age; or $25 if below that age, who may voluntarily emigrate to Liberia.

A Morse's Foot. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 7 May 1853

A Morse's Foot. McCulloch gives the following interesting description of the foot of the hor-e : The loot of the horse is one of the most ingenius and singular pieces of mechanism in the animal structure, snd scarcely yielding to any in regularity, and in complexity of parts, under simplicity of design. The hoof contains series testes AU!f«BiMWi»a« lining to it. Into this -ire fitted as many laminje belonging to the coffin bone; which sets aro elastic and adherent. The edgo of a quire of paper, inserted leaf by leaf into another will convey a sufficient idea of this arrangement.— Thus the weight of the animal is supported by as many elastic springs as there are laminae iu all the feet, amounting to about 4000. distributed in the most secure uanncr, since every spring is acted upon in an oblique direction — Such is the contrivance for the safety of an animal destined to carry greater weights than that of its own body, and to carry those, also, under the hazard of heavy shoes.

Gold and Silver Hair Powder. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 7 May 1853

Gold and Silver Hair Powder. Among the revivals of old fashions, iind the production of novelties in dress, the Paris letter writers mention that soi e ladies, in the fashionable world, who wish to make'a sensation, have revived the fashion of wearing powder in the hair. Others, carrying the matters still further have made this fashion more costly by adopting gold and silver hair powder, gold for brunettes and silver for blonds. The Courrier des Etats Unis says, that this is not a news paper illusion or a simple project, it is a fixed fact. The trial has been made at tho Italian Theatre.

Before Justice Dryden,—William Gavoni brought up an Indian boy last Tuesday, on a charge of running away from his service. It appeared from careful inquiry, however, that so far from there boing any just ground for complaint against the Indian,he had been most inhumanly maltreated by Gavoni,the marks of which were still prominent upon his person. — The Justice very properly refused to entertain the oharge, and dismissed the case, Mr Gavoni paying the costs thereof; which amounted to about. $l<f

The Herald says that another bill has beon introduced into the Assembly, moulded somewhat in accordance with the views expressed in the Governor's last message on Extension, and no doubt other projects will follow: but it is now well understood that nothing savoring of Extension can pass this Legislature. During the pending of the question, .Hon Mr De la Guerra of Santa Barbara, made a speech in Spanish, in favor of the motion to postpone, Which is highly spokon of in the papers.

Bloody Affray in Santa B.arl»a.ra—Deplorable State of Affaire. 1.11: c- D.._Uo. n Vitt tVia I Our intelligence from Santa Barbara, by the Sea Bird, ia of p. most exciting and melancholy nature, and such as tP cause the keenest regret among all .classes of our citizens. A fight occurred in the streets of that city on Saturday .last, between a .party of Califpriuans pn on® side and some Americans on the other, .which resulted in the- death of one man and the wounding of three more, one,of whom, it Lb supposed will not recover. VVe have received no correspondence from the scene of difficulty, and have been obliged to gather our information relating to it from various sources. This we -have taken some pains to do, and we believe the following is a tolerably fair statement of the case, though we dp not vouch for its authenticity in every particular. m An American named John, but more familiarly known as Jack Powers, had been occupying a piece of land which Mr Nicholas Dau had leased from...

Tlx* Biter Bitten. Four gentlemen, three of -whom ware limbs of the law, were engaged in conversation a few evenings since, when one of the professionals ; who had but recently been admitted to pracI tice was asked by the outsider why it was that | he had quit the business so soon. "0," replied the person addressed, "I tried it a spell, got far enough to discover some of the rascalities incident to the profession, and concluded 1 was too , well brought up to lollow it!" That was rathi er a hard*one oa the lawyers, but those gentlej men have always had credit for being fruitful in expedients, and are generally considered rather hard to "get round." it was so in this instauce, for the laugh was hardly over before one ot the persons reflected upon remarked that doubtless from what little experience the gentleman had had, he had learned that the d—st rascals always turned States' evidence first ! — W. caved.

Another bold attempt at Assassination. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 7 May 1853

Another bold attempt at Assassination. On Monday evening last, a most daring attempt was made upon the life of one of one of our citizens named Thomas F. Swinn, in that notorious locality called Nigger Alley. The particulars of the affair, as near as have been ascertained, are as follows: ¶ Mr Swinn was passing through the corral of the Figuroa house, on his way to a room which he occupied near the zanga, when some person who was sitting near the pillars of the house discharged a pistol at him, the ball from which took effect in the lower jaw, glancing up, however, so that a flesh wound and perhaps the loss of one or two teeth will be the only injuries he will sustain. It was quite dark at the time, and Mr S. eould not recognize the man's person, though he,noticed he was of short stature. Alter the shot the assassin struck his intended victim on the head with some heavy instrument, seized him by the throat and attempted to choke him. He fled,however, without being able to accomplish...
