A DRINKING SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
A DRINKING SONG. JOBS L. WILLIAMS. Bring hither now the rosy wine, Fill, fill your glasses to the brim ; And, while the sparkling dew-drops idiine, Drink till your eyes be damp and dim. Loud let your boisterous laughter ring ; Let joke and spicy wit abound ; Your gayest, merriest chansons sing, Awhile these toasts are echoing round: Here's to the lonely wives at home, Who wait and weep while we are gay, Who dread to see their husbands come. With staggering step, at break of day. They should be patient—'tis not meet That we with them should mope our nights; Their loving smiles and kisses sweet Will not compare with wine's delights. Here's to the children of the sot. Who hungering daily cry for bread. Or ragged mourn their life's sad lot, And shivering nestle in their bed; What though their minds are running waste. Like gardens wildered o'er with weeds? Let us indulge kind Nature's taste— Nor, like sad monks, sit counting beads. Here's to the mothers whom we love — Would they were her...
An Important Page [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
An Important Page IK CALIFORNIA'S HISTORY. In communities, as with individuals, habit becomes a second nature, and extended tolerance of malpractices and insalubrious social habits, frequently exercises such an influence on the body politic that the entire system would seem to lie given up to the control of principles in themselves subversive ol both law and order. But in society as in the individual the vts medkatrir aafura is always at work, though its operations may not be. to even the keen observer, perceptible. Nature trill assert herself, and her action will be violent and wide-sweeping in proportion to the outrages she has for so long a period been forced to endure. Through one of these self-purging crises the city of San Francisco has just passed. For years law has been a farce, and order a mockery. The ballot-box, which should have been the means of our political purification, has been transformed into a filthy fountain, from which flowed corrupt legislation at the bidding ...
A Day of Action. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
A Day of Action. There won; many signs OB the night of Saturday whicli. to the close observer, indicated thai the day which followed it would be an Important one in the annals of our city's history. Still, the great majority of the population were ignoraat of the deeds that day was to bring forth, and it was only when, with firm tread ami quiet determined sued, companies of men armed with muskets, bayonets, and side-arms. ap|&gt;oared in the streets, marching in the direction of the jail, that the mass of the population became aware that another Sunday was to be employed in a similar undertaking to that which occupied a small body of the members of the Committee of '51, on the memorable 21th of August in that year. A few moments were occupied on thi" Plaza in the formation of a storming party, and then the armed men and an immense tide of spectators thronged the streets, all hastening in the direction of Broadway. ft was a sight such as occurs in the lifetime of few men to w...
Old Proverbs. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
Old Proverbs. Better lie the head of the yeomanry than tail ot' tin' gentry. Beware of a silent dog tad still water. Daughters and dead tish are nae keeping ware. It is not easy to straighten iv the oak the crook that grew in the sapling. Then' is many a good wife who cannot dance or sing well. You w ill never have a friend if you must have one without a failing. There is one good wife in the country, and every man on his woddiiur-dav thinks he hath her. Lean liberty is better than fat slavery. That's but an empty purse that is full of other folks' BMNMJ. One Bright as well be out of the world as lieloved by nobody in it.

Influence of the Smile in giving Beauty of Expression. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
Influence of the Smile in giving Beauty of Expression. A beautiful smile is to the female countenance what the sunbeam is to the landscape. It euibel-li-lies an mfarier face, and redeeSßS an ugly one. A smile, however, should Hot iKVonjc habitual, or im-i pidity is the result ; nor should the mouth break into a smile on one side, the other remaining passive and unmoved, for this imparts an air of deceit and giotestpiene-s to the face. A disagreeable smile distorts the lines of beauty, aad is more repulsive than a frown. There are many kinds of smiles, caeh Inn iug a di-tim-livc character— some announce goodness and sweetness- others betray sarcasm, bitterness, ami pride—some soften the countenance by their languishing tenderness—others brighten it by their brilliant anil spiritual vivacity. Hazing and poring before a mirror cannot aid in acquiring beautiful smiles half so well as to turn the gaze inward, to watch that the heart keeps unsullied from the reflection of evil, and is ill...

A Single Word. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
A Single Word. Dining one day with the Princess of Wales (Queen Caroline), I heard her say that on her Brat arrival in this country, she could not speak one word or Knglish. Soon after, I mentioned that circumstance to a large party; and a discission arose what Knglish word would be most useful for a person to know, supposing that person's knowledge of the language must be limited to a single word. The greater number of the company fixed on " Yes." But Lady Charlotte Lindsay said that she should prefer " Xo;" because though "Yes," never meant " N«, n —" No" very often meant " Yes."

An Englishman in America. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
An Englishman in America. Mr. James B. AVarrcn, an Englishman, writes to the London Shipping Gazette, from Buffalo, as follows : "I have now made the tour of the States of North America, and think it probable 1 can give your readers some useful information. I landed at New York city ten months ago, and have spent my time in studying the character and customs of these people, and must confess that if I remained ten years the result would lie the same ; and I know very little about them. But upon one point—national pride—men, women, and children are all alike, and the idea of any nation of Kurope. or the whole of them put together, conquering this country, is perfectly absurd to them. Everybody reads the papers, and a good-humored urchin used to rate me soundly at Philadelphia for our failure at Sebastopol." There is not a little in the foregoing. The difficulty with most foreign travelers is, that they pass on too rapidly to ascertain facts, or to gather correct impressions. They onl...
Can It Be So? [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
Can It Be So? The theory that our winters have increased in length and severity during the last eight or nine centuries is supported by some remarkable facts. The Northmen who discovered Greenland about the year 983 ir a ve it its present name on account ol the rich verdure which clothed its mountains and valleys. Formerly it produced trees measuring two to three feet in diameter ; now. it is rare to see a bush exceeding a man's height, or thicker than the wrist. Formerly Iceland was covered with mighty forests ; now. only stunted grass can bear the cold of its winters. The roving Northmen who visited the shores of this continent as early as the tenth century were charmed with the mild, genial air, the rich vegetation, especially with the luxuriant vines of New Kngland. They called the country, even including the sea border of .Maine. Vinland or the land of vines. It is therefore probable that eight centuries ago. the climate of New t ork was as mild as lhat of Central and Northern ...
Thomas Carlyle and Chaires Dickens. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
Thomas Carlyle and Chaires Dickens. Speaking of Prussia reminds me that allured by prospects of peace and the talk about a Prussian (iv all probability) alliance, iv royal and official circles here. Thomas Carlvlc is applying himself with vigor to terminate his long promised biography ot the great Frederick, which he more than once has abondoued or pimpcudeil lt will be published iv four volumes next Christmas. There is some gossip afloat, too, about anew- work by Charles Dickens, w ho. as you w ill have seen, has returned from Paris, and has been more than usunllv active of late at literary and dramatic public ■actings. The origin of the talked of work is an attt-ck made upon the eminent novelist by Count Moatatembert, the celebrated French writer and politician, who in a recent publication, with more zeal than knowledge, accused Mr. Dickens of having cxci ed the poor against the rich in his social fictions ; in fact of being an Knglish Eugene Sue. Dickens, it is said, intends to p...

Recipe for a Modern Gent. If it takes nine tailors to make a man, it must take a double number to make a gentleman—we mean a modern one —because that biped deems himself the very (piintessence of elegance and Hue exterior.

Place them all in apple-pic order oa I SOU brainless goose in human form : and. lo! yoa posse a modern gent. Place a jet walking cane betwixt hi&gt; lily digitals, and set him promenading in Broadway.
The Characteristics of the Excitement. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
The Characteristics of the Excitement. It must have been noted by even the most casual observer that the excitement which has for the past four days prevailed in our city, has been more remarkable for its breadth, depth and intensity, than for any of tbe violent ebullitions of passion which usually mark high popular feeling. There has absolutely been less excitement manifested by individuals than ou many previous occasions. This led to erroneous conclusions on the part of many, and probably it had some influence in moderating the tone of those pajiers who blundered so fatally in their leaders of Thursday morning. Many were of the opinion that, becouse the jail was not attacked and the prisoner taken from it on Thursday night, the people were lukewarm, and the matter would pass over without any marked manifestation of popular wrath. But those whose observation led them to closer examination, came to more correct conclusions They saw that the feeling was wide-spread and deep, and that...
The Counter Movement. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
The Counter Movement. 11 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 sec 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 be 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 been no such excitement 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 our conviction that the Comm...
