The "Minnehaha." [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
The "Minnehaha." Wo heard a critique upon the name " Minnehahai for a ship, a day or two ago. by an old sailor, that is worth mentioning. •• How do you like the name. Jack?" h e was asked, on board the Chelsea ferry-boat as they were passing the ship. '• The name's well enough," said he. " but s'pose that vessel should be spoke at sea iv a gale of wind —-' What ship's that V and the answer be ' Minne haha,' the one as spoke her would go right in aud report hailing a ship at sea, and getting for an answer nothing but a horse-langh through a trumpet." Jack thought he had done tbe business for the name.— Boston Eve. Gazette.

The Martyrdom Complete. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
The Martyrdom Complete. "To the bash comes the hud : the flower to the plain; But the brave and the good come never again." The fit man. the fell purpose, n fin&lt;rer's pressure on the fatal lliggßJ., und Crime makes the Patriot n martyr. A slight report, soon succeeded hv silence, yet how wide-spread and mighty its effects ! A momentary flash, nnd then the shadow of sorrow fell on the hills and valleys of the State, from the Sierra to the sea. Hope, striving with Pate, postponed for a season the coming of Despair, and then all was over, lt was only left for her to point with tearful eyes to the upward path of the departed one. and with silent, sad gesture urge us to emulate his example. James Kino ok William was dead to earth. The noliie heart that had swelled with the plowing thoughts to which his pen gave utterance had ceased its throbliings. The souls his eloquence had stirred into indignation against Wruntr and action for the Right, bowed at his death with the sorrow t...
The Counter Movement. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
The Counter Movement. It is rumored, we know not on what authority, that an organization is going on against the Vigilance Committee. The movement, if any there be. is based on what the Committee might do rather than on what they have done, and vague rumors are afloat of some unjustifiable action to be hereafter taken by that body. We cannot see the necessity for any such movement, even among those who do not approve the Committee's past action. If, as is asserted, any political organization is to grow out of the Vigilance Committee, it will In: time enough to oppose it when it actually makes its appearance. The only consequence that can at present ensue from a counter organization is bloodshed—certainly a consummation which no patriot can desire. There has heen no such excitcmeut or hasty action as is naturally productive of regret and reaction. All is now quiet, and if order be disturbed it will not be by the Vigilance Committee. We last week expressed onr conviction that the Comm...
A Reminiscence. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
A Reminiscence. A short time after the failure of Adams &amp; Co. and Page, Bacon &amp; Co., James Kino oe William commenced a series of letters in one of the city papers, in which it was intended to give a full statement of his connection with and knowledge of the affairs of the former house. That series of letters was suddenly apd provokingly suspended, and in a communication to the Wide West a correspondent signing himself " Inquirer " alluded to the discontinuance of those letters in a manner imputing improper motives to Mr. King. On tlic morning after its publication, a gentleman called at our office and requested to see tlic editor, and his desire was complied with. That gentleman was Mr. King, with whom the writer had previously had no acquaintance. We are free to admit that, our prepossessions were not in his favor, and to the explanations which he proffered in a frank, clear style, we listened with incredulity at first; a feeling which subsequently gave way ...

The Vigilance Committee. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
The Vigilance Committee. The Herald of this city, in one or two sophistical articles displaying more ability than candor, endeavors to convince its readers that the action of the Vigilance Committee is all wrong on abstract principles, and conjures up a phantom of what the members of that Committee may become if they are to go on in their conduct. The Herald's argument resembles that of the " sea-lawyer," or wise one among sailors, who, after a messmate has been flogged for a trifling crime, insists that it can't be done—that such punishment is illegal. "Well, they did do it, anyhow," was the reply. If such action as the Vigilance Committee have taken were legal, there would be no such crisis in our affairs as that just concluded. If the laws had been administered with the firmness, purity of motive, and promptness with which their action has been taken, that action would never have lieen necessary. It was necessary that something effective should be done, and the people prelerred t...
The Day of Doom. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
The Day of Doom. There las MriHlg in tbe choice of the day on which the two criminals met their fate which operated unpleasantly on the finer feeling* ol human nature. It seemed hardly tit thai the duy solemnized by the last rites to the martyr Kino. should also number among its occurrences the execution of two murderers. Vet on reflection it will lie seen that in this, as in all their previous action, the Vigilance Committee wen- guided by no hasty impulse, but followed the dictates of a wise und calm consideration. The i i rand .1 ury had hurried I hroiiL'h uu indietnent, and the preliminary steps wening taken for action by the authorities in resuming possession of the persons of the prisoners. Unsuccessful as this al tempi would undoubtedly have proved, it might have been attended wilh bloodshed, a consummation which the Committee were Ihmiikl to avert. l!ut tliore were other considerations which in our view, though less weighty than thy foregoing, ,v, still sufficiently powerful...
The Suspension of Law. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
The Suspension of Law. If there he any who look upon the events which have recently occurred in this city, in the light of retributive acts for the particular crimes which have in the persons of Casey and Cora been punished, to them we would say that their view of the scenes through which we have passed, has been both superficial and narrow. Nor is that light v proper one which represents the action taken as a revolution. Revolutions end either iv anarchy or the establishment of a new form of government. Neither of these will be the result of the late movement. It is true that Justice has stepped in to exercise the prerogatives which the people had hitherto assigned to Ijiw. Such nn assumption of power can only be justified on the ground of immediate necessity and almost perfect unanimity. These conditions it cannot be denied were the concomitants of the past crisis. The crisis over, our citizens will return to their occupations. The musket and bayonet have been laid down, and those...
NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
NEWS OF THE WEEK. The Executive Committee of Vigilance have published a card denying the allegations that have been made against them in certain quarters, of "unauthorized searches" and " domiciliary visits." There is little question that these stories have been got up for popular effect, to produce a reaction against the Committee. Another notice has been published, to the effect that all orders of the Committee will hereafter bear their seal —a reasonable precaution. The Monterey Sentitiel says: "For three or four days during this week we have had heavy showers of rain, which will doubtless bo of great service in the potatoe fields nnd the gardens, but it comes too late to aid the ptSttl I as, and there is a great scarcity of grass, it being very difficult to find any fit to cut for hay. The weather is fine and warm, and the crops of vegetables are taking a good start." In all the principal towns of the Interior, meetings have been held and resolutions passed commenting severely o...
The Herald on the Vigilance Committee of 1851. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
The Herald on the Vigilance Committee of 1851. Wo gito below extracts from editorial articles which ap|i-ared in the San Francisco Herald. during the summer ot UU. It will lie -eon thai the ground* on which the Vigilance Commil tec tsf ih.il year were justified arc etpially potent now. It is true that the circumstances are not strietlv analmgmu, but if we rightly understand the Herald's present [Misition. it objects to the Committee because il i- an illegal body, and its members are not responsible in (he manner in which those iv authority are customarily held.to responsibility. Hut certainly if a ImmJv of eight or nine hundred men were in 18.M justified iv taking the execution of law iv this city into tla'ir own hand- against strong opposition ; a society numlicriiig near three thousand, and w hose tiinnl&gt;crs could have been doubled had necessity called or opportunity l&gt;een afforded for such increase, hail like justification for similar conduct, particularly w...
The San Mateo Outrage. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
The San Mateo Outrage. The actors in the late frauds at San Jtateo must not go unpunished. Still less must those who have been elevated to position and power hy the disgraceful incidents of that election be permitted to reap the rewards of their audacity and crime. Here is a field for Ijiw to vindicate itself in prompt and efficient action. Let not the opportunity pass unimproved. For if we would have order, we must have justice as a consequence of legal action. We do not wish soon to see another week like the past. We do not wish again to in the people ni—ajiilluj to do the work for which they pay officials. But better months of such action than submission to wrong. And we warn those whose duty it is to proceed in this matter to act, unless they wish to lose all future opportunity for action. Naw Pi'uucATi.iNs. —Wo have received from T. I!. Peterson, Philadelphia, a copy of a newbook, just issued from his press, entitled the " Pictorial Lab and Adventures of Jack Adams.'' A Fink Di...
