QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. Aborioine.—" I. Are not the definitions of Indian words by Ixmgfellow, in ' Hiawatha,' a little poetized, and in many instances strained and perverted from their true meaning? 11. Would not a Digger Indian vocabulary and accompanying article make an interesting essay for yonr paper?" I. Doubtless Longfellow has altered some of the definitions so as to render them more poetical. Of the extent to which he has carried it, we are not able to speak. One instance, however, has come under our notice. Iv a Vocabulary of Indian Words recently we came across the word "Minnehaha." Longfellow interprets this " laughing water." The vocabulary simply gives the delinitioti "waterfall." This would be allowable, if the alteration did not give the impression that the Indians were more poetical in character than they really are. " Laughing water " is a very pretty, poetical phrase for a waterfall, but as it is the idea of a white poet, n false impression is conveyed in giving In...

GENERAL GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856

GENERAL GOSSIP. * * The Publishers' Circular says: "The novels and books of light reading published this winter have proved less successful than in late years, and it is difficult now to get a publisher to look at a manuscript of this character. The public are variable in taste. ' Uncle Tom's Cabin' inaugurated an era to the business which sctms drawing to a close. ' Domestic Tales' are beginning to be at a discount. Tlic booksellers scattered through the country, who had standing orders for six, twelve, twenty-five, or more copies of every new dollar-and-a-quarter book, arc diminishing or entirely withdrawing their orders. What shall we have next ? Shall it be biography, history, poetry, or essays ? or will some brilliant genius among the authors strike out a new path ?" * * The Boston Atlas says that the clipper ship Great Republic, the largest clipper in the world, has more than answered the expectations of her builder, Mr. Donald McKay, by her unrivaled speed and other excellent...

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. A prescription for the cure of small-pox. scarlatina and measles, has been communicated by the Royal College of Surgeons, London. It, is reported to have been tested with invariable success in innumerable instances. The recipe is as follows:— Take one ounce of powdered fox-glove or digitalis —valuable in the ratio of its greenness—and the same quantity of sulphate of zinc or while vitriol • rub thoroughly in a mortar, with a few drops of water; add four ounces of water and a little sugar. Of this mixture a tablespoonful should be given to an adult, aud two teaspoonsful to a child, every second hour until symptoms of disease vanish. The herb annihilates the fever, and the zinc acts as a tonic. An " Orfil Draught."—An old acquaintance of ours in the country indulges in a very exaggerated style of description and ill ustrnt ion in his ordinary conversation. For instance, in describing the effect of the alterations in his kitchen chimney which he had ordered his mas...

American Characteristics. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856

American Characteristics. We copy the following from a late number of the Presbyterian Quarterly Review : We now come to the other chtracteristic of Americans. JVof only is every woman treated as a lady, because she is a woman, but th'S is done by every American. It is not especially characteristic of city or country, of cultivation or want of cultivation, of the old States or the new ; wherever there is a woman who behaves modestly, from the one ocean to the other, she has a protector in every American she meets. This is exceedingly beautiful. It deserves more eulogy than it has attained. The world has never seen anything like it. For observe one sign of its deep beauty and significance. In the masses it is an unconscious grace and excellence. Two-thirds of the men who will put themselves to the most generous inconvenience for any woman whatever, just because she is a woman, would hardly understand a compliment upon the matter. It is a thing of course, like kindness to a parent, or...
