Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 3 November 1847

We copy the following lines, read at the New England Society's Festival at New York, December 22, 1846, by Allen C. Spooner of Boston, from the Courier! TVas in ray easy chair at home, About a week ago, I sat and puffed my light cigar As usual, you must know. 1 mused upon the pilgrim flock Whoso luck it was to land Upon almost the only rock Among the Plymouth sand. In mind's eye. I saw them leave Their weather-beaten bark — Before them spread the wintry wilds, Behind, rolled ocean dark. Alone that little handful stood While savage foes lurked nigh, Their creed and watchword, 'Trust in God And keep your powder dry." Imagination's pencil then That first stern winter painted, When more than half their number died And stoutest spirits fainted. A tear unbidden filled one eye, My smoke had filled the other ; One sees strange sights at such a time, Which quite the senses bother. I knew I was alone — but lo ! (Let h»m who dares, deride me — ) I looked, and, drawing up a chair, Down sat a ma...

PUNCH DRINKING AND ITS EFFECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 3 November 1847

PUNCH DRINKING AND ITS EFFECTS. One particularly dark, damp, dull, drizzly and disagreeble day, in the latter part of Nov. A. D. 1842, a tall quant, queer looking customer, dressed in a blue coat with metal buttons, a brimstone colored vest, and plaid pantaloons with calfskin terminations, sat, " solitary and alone," in a little room, situated in certain little tavern in ---- street, city of Philadelphia. Before him was a little round table on whose marble top was not a little pitcher of smoking punch, "screechin hot," and a wine glass. The solitary individual was York, nothin else, dear child, and that was his second pitcher empty. One minute after, and you could'nt have squeezed a drop out of either pitcher or glass by a forty-two pound hydraulic press. York rang the bell. The water popped his head in at the door. "Ring, sa?" "Of course I did. Is it clearing off?" "No, sa -- damp, sa -- fog so thick, sa, you could ladle a' out 'ith a spoon, sa. Have anythin', sa ?* "More punch and...

SLANDER. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 3 November 1847

SLANDER. The public must be satisfied, nay sickened with the bitter personalities that have, of late, obtruded themselves into the public papers. If there be any causes that render it absolutely necessary that we should quarrel, if hate and malice are to usurp the chief place in our midst, let us no longer publish our disgrace to the world. In a new and rapidly increasing community like ours, those evils which tend to the interruption of the social intercourse and the disorganization of society, are, of all others, to be avoided. A man isolated from his neighbors, so far breaks the divine law, that he looses all those kindly promptings of; humanity which a free and generous spirit enjoys. The manly avowal of opinion—a hearty, predjudice,—a healthy expression of passion, can neither be understood nor appreciated where misrepresentation is ever ready to pervert the truth. There is enough in man that is noble and God-like to attract our admiration and win our applause, without seeking ...
