ORIGINAL. ON THE DEATH OF J. B. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 23 May 1846

ORIGINAL. ON THE DEATH OF J. B. W. Aliir ! afar ! in ocean’s tide So weary, dark, and deep, A gallant heart, a mother’s pride, ■ Lies cold in endless sleep. In sturdy health and youthful bloom He skipped above the wave, Not thinking of an early tomb, Nor of a briny grave. A moment past— a rope gave way— As Quick as it did sever, He It'll amidst the rolling spray, And sunk beneath forever. Flowers that gaily feast the eye, That richest scents exhale, Are broken ere they breathe a sifch, And perish in the gale. The fairest work of nature’s hand Endeared by every grace, Is often at a brief command Snatched from its earthly place. So he who stood in youthful prime Endeared with many charms, Was taken in his brightest time Without a faint alarm. An anxious soul, with love replete To glad her son’s return, His mother waited; hut! his fate, That mother now must mourn. And must I say, a plighted heart So constant and so dear, Has felt the stroke, the fatal dart, That closed his young career...

A Little of Fvery Thing. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 23 May 1846

A Little of Fvery Thing. Sydney Smith once said to a chapter of bishops, who talked of paving some court, “Oh, put your heads together , and you can do it.” When you see a mechanic who is ashamed of his business, you may be assured that his business has cause to be ashamed of him. £ 1 understand,’ said a deacon to one of his neighbors, ‘that you are becoming a hard drinker.’ ‘That is a slander,’ replied the neighbor, ‘for no mau can di ink easier .’ ‘Jim, do you believe in ghosts?’ asked a fellow of another, just as he was about tossing off a raintjulep. ‘No, replied J im, ‘but I do in spiri's.

For the Doung. CLING TO THY MOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 23 May 1846

For the Doung. CLING TO THY MOTHER. BY GEO. W. BETHUNE. KNICKERBOCKER. LEAR. Cling to thy mother; for she was the first To know thy being, and to leel thy life; The hope oftiiee through many a pang she nurst; And, when midst anguish like the parting strife Her babe was m her arms, the agony Was all forgot, for bliss of loving thee. Be gentle to thy mother; long she bore Thine infant fretfujness ami silly youth; No r rudely scorn the faithful voice that o’er Thy cradle prayed and taught thy lisping truth. Yes, she is old; yet on thy manly brow She looks, and claims thee as her child e’en now. Uphold thy mother; close to her warm heart She carried, fed thee, lulled to thy rest; Then taught thy tottering limbs their untried art, Exulting in the fledgling from his nest; And, now her steps are* feeble, be her stay, Whose strength was thine, in thy most feeble day. Cherish thy mother; brief perchance the time May be, that she will claim the care she gave; Passed are her hopes of youth, he...

MEMORARE; OR THE PRAYER OF ST. BERNARD ILLUSTRATED. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 23 May 1846

MEMORARE; OR THE PRAYER OF ST. BERNARD ILLUSTRATED. Mark Antony Petit was born at Lyons in 1766. His poor mother made the greatest sacrifices in order to educate her son, and he profited by her tender care, and at her desire followed the profession of surgeon, although his own taste would have led him to become a man of letters. At the age of seventeen he obtained the situation of house surgeon in the Hospital of Charity at Lyons, and afterwards the place of principal surgeon in the Hotel Dieu; but according to the regulation of the administration of the hospital, it was necessary before entering on the duties of this office, that he should spend three years at Paris, and three years additional in the hospital in quality of principal assistant. Unfortunately he found it impossible to make the pecuniary sacrifices which this novitiate required during a three years’ absence. Petit, whose young ambition kindled at the brilliant prospect his talent had opened uj) to him, a prospect whic...

THE ARMY AND THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 23 May 1846

THE ARMY AND THE WAR. THE PILOT. SATURDAY, MAY 23, 184G. The Exclusives are striving to get up a cry about the late desertions from Gen. Taylor. They wish it to be believed that the deserters are all foreigners and Catholics; but it is a most curious circumstance, an extraordinary phenomenon, that they have not the impudence to say so. There is a newspaper in Boston which has been humorously called “The American Eagle,” (it is a kind of cross between the cocksparrow and the cuckoo) and it speaks thus:—“\Y r e believe the chief part, if not the whole of the deserters are foreign Catholics.” It appears that the Catholics in the army of occupation are subjected to annoyances and religious privations: under such circumstances, we should not be surprised if many of them were found to desert; but it does not appear that such is the case; and we call upon the public to admire the steadiness and loyalty of those men who can hold the post of danger not only against the enemy without, but aga...

ANELLI'S PAINTING. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 23 May 1846

ANELLI'S PAINTING. We intend, now and then, to introduce a short article of criticism upon something in art or literature. We have no doubt many of our readers would consider it an advantage to become familiar with the principles according to which taste and judgment are exercised upon these subjects. Popular criticism is a thing nearly unknown ; and it is a thing for want of which the great mass of the'public are as destitute as Lazarus. They sit at the gates of literature, upon the great highway of penny prints, and novel newspapers ; their mental food is made up of crumbs and scrapings from the repasts of the higher classes; and their intellectual solace is derived from the ministry of miserable scribes who pander to their vices and infirmities, of literary journeymen who write novels and plays upon the newest murders, “ mysteries” of profligate cities, and adventures of abandoned women : thus, as we say, the mass of the people are like Lazarus; they are fed with crumbs from the ...

THE EVENING TRANSCRIPT ABOUT THE MEXICANS. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 23 May 1846

THE EVENING TRANSCRIPT ABOUT THE MEXICANS. In a late number of the above paper appeared an article which is worth something as a sample of its sort. Its purpose, that is its ostensible purpose,was to render the Mexicans odious by abusing the Catholic religion. The base and vulgar cant of No Popei'y was freely used in its most hackneyed form. The Mexicans preferred the Catholic ritual on account of their ignorance; with respect to religion, they were little more enlightened than their ancestors’ in the time of Montezuma; and “their religion is very little less an idolatry than that of the grotesque images of stone and clay, of which it has taken the place.” So on, and so on, our eye wandered down a pretty long rigmarole of that disgusting stuff’, which nobody need hear any more of than the name to know all about. We were going to do with it as we do with such things generally; that is, lay down the paper, and yawn heavily, and wonder what all that’s for; for we know that those things...

THE DAILY AMERICAN EAGLE. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 23 May 1846

THE DAILY AMERICAN EAGLE. This bird of evil omen has been “like a hen upon a hot kiln” about that paragraph in the Post, to which he laid a sort of joint-stock claim last week. He is in mortal terror lest any body should think that he “entertains the same sentiments towards the Irish population that the conductor of the Post does.” He ought to have considered that at first: if he hadn’t inserted the paragraph, he would not have been under the necessity of explaining himself afterwards. However, he retrieves his error, if it was possible for him to commit an error of the kind; and, we think, fully satisfies his readers that he has “no desire to be considered as entertaining any thing which may have the appearance of kindly feeling towards”—them; but, on the contrary, that, for them, he entertains murder in his heart, and slander on his tongue; and that his desire and ambition are to abuse them in language which would disgrace any civilized country, and adopt towards them a line of co...
