Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 17 March 1860

The Prospect.—Never before since the .ettlement of this valley have the prospects ■f the citizens been better than the present pring. The heavy rains during the fall and .vinter caused the grass to spring up abundantly, and the light spring showers, falling every few days, keep the grass and grain growing most lnxuriantly. The water from the mountain streams, arising from the melting of the snow, which is generally used for irrigation during the dry part of the sumner, will scarcely be needed at all this sea«on. The present indications are that the armers will have the most abundant crops uid the stock raisers the fattest cattle, hogs, and sheep that have ever been seen in this ■ection of country. The population of the valley is increasing rapidly—every portion of the timbered land is being settled upon, louses erected, orchards planted, and fences uilt, all of which indicate permanent setements and happy homes for the numerous imilies now coming amongst us. In addi'.on to this, sto...

A Constitutional Convention [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 17 March 1860

A Constitutional Convention Is the most vitally important question of the day. It should be deeply and dispassionately considered, and its ultimate effects upon the present onerous system of taxation fully comprehended by all who are legitimately entitled to participate in the election of delegates, and the remodelling of the organic law. It swells beyond the precincts of personal ends, political .party advantages, or local or sectional aggrandizement, into the presence of those practical considerations of political economy that are to guage the agricultural, mining, and commercial interests of a great and growing State, perhaps for ages to come. We say, therefore, beware of the designing demagogue, the partisan, and the political trickster, in making up your minds on the measures of reformation, and the agents that are to execute them. That there is great need of the revision of the Constitution, relative to the entire Judiciary system, all can attest who have for a moment watched ...

Legislative Summery. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 17 March 1860

Legislative Summery. Which, by the way, is very Meagre—there having been no Bills of general importance to the State passed yet, nor indeed do we believe many have been introduced of that character with any prospect of success. It seems however to have won the appellation, as Mr. Merritt said: "The Legislature of a thousand resolves," Add to that its efforts at "Special Legislation," and you have a full view of its main features. March, 20.—Senate had under consideration that monstrous subject of constructing the San Francisco "Bulkhead Bill." Messrs. A nderson, Peachy, Parker, Watkins and Edgerton, were appointed a special committee to report on it. So it rests. Mr. Vance, from the Committee on Public Morals, reported back Assembly bill No. 171, an Act to prevent the stealing of dogs; and recommended its passage. (Wonder if it provides a penalty against their being "kettled.") The time of the Senate was principally taken up in the discussion of the Telegraph bill. The bill to prohi...

Letter from Mr. Giddings. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 17 March 1860

Letter from Mr. Giddings. Washington Crrt, Feb. 5,1860. To the Editor of the Ashtabula Sentinel: Our friends at home should be slow to censure their Representatives for deserting Mr. Sherman. They did so for the purpose of electing a Speaker, and defeating a party that has long wielded the federal power to the support of Slaver)-. They felt the humiliation of discarding a candidate because he had endorsed the doctrine of Helper's Book, every sentence of which finds a response in the hearts of all true Republicans. There—let it no longer be said "that Republicans repudiate Helper." The Prophet has spoken.— St Louis Republican. Travis, the man of eleven wives, is now in custody in Janesville, Wisconsin. The editor of a paper there saw the amorous individual, and, instead of the handsome, gentlemanly rascal thac he expected to see, he says he beheld a half-witted, insignificant spooney, whom he should suppose would have great difficulty in persuading even one woman to marry him.

Charity. [Newspaper Article] — Visalia Weekly Delta — 17 March 1860

Charity. When you meet with one suspected Of some secret deed of shame, And for this by all rejected, As a thing of evil fame, Guard thine every look and action, Speak no word of heartless blame, For the slanderer's vile detraction Yet may spoil thy goodly name. When you meet with one pursuing Ways the lost have entered in, Working out his own undoing, With his recklessness and sin; Think, if placed in his condition, Would a kind word be in vain ? Or a look of cold suspicion Win thee back to truth again ? There are spots that bear no flowers, Not because the soil is bad; But the summer's genial showers Never make their bosoms glad. Better have an act that's kindly Sometimes treated with disdain, Than by judging others blindly, Doom the innocent to pain. A Beautiful Sentiment. Oh, never breathe a lost one's name When those that loved that name are nigh; It pours a lava through the frame That chokes the breast and fills the eye; It strains a chord that yields too much Of piercing angu...
