Little Charlie. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 11 January 1855
Little Charlie. We pick up the following reproof to careless mothers, from Fanny Fern. It is one of the most touching leaves that has dropped from her pen: — I am one of that persecuted class, denominated " old maids." By going quietly about the world, taking care not to jostle my neighbors, or hit against any of their rough angles, 1 manage to be cheerful, contented and happy. In my multitudinous migrations, I have had some opportunity to study human nature. Lately, I have become a temporary inmate of a crowded boarding house. My little room has already begun to look quite home-like. The cheerful sun had expanded the fragrant flowers I love so well to nurture; my canary trills his satisfaction in a gayer song than ever; and my pictures, books and guitar, drive " dull care away," and beguile many a pleasant hour. And now, my heart has found a new object of interest. I've noticed on the stair case, and in the hall and lobby, a lovely child, who seemed wandering about at his own sweet...
The Kitchen. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 11 January 1855
The Kitchen. We give to intellect, to morality, to religion, and to all the virtues, the honor that belongs to them. And still, it may be boldly affirmed, that economy, taste, skill and neatness, in the kitchen, have a great deal to do in making life happy and prosperous. Nor is it indispensably necessary that a house should be filled with luxuries. All the qualifications for good house-keeping can be displayed as well on a small scale as on a large one. A small house can be more easily kept clean, than a palace. Economy is most needed in the absence of an abundance. Taste is as well displayed in placing the dishes on a pine table, as in arranging the folds of a damask curtain. And skillful cooking is as readily discovered in a nicely baked potato, or in a respectable johnny-cake, as in a nut-brown sir-loin, or a brace of canvassback. The charm of good house-keeping is in the order, economy, and taste displayed in attention to little things. And these little things have a wonderful ...
FROM THE EAST. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 11 January 1855
FROM THE EAST. By the arrival of the steamer Sierra Nevada, at this port on Saturday evening last, we have New York dates to the 12th December, and from New Orleans to the 14th. We have intelligence from Liverpool to the 2d December, which was transmitted by telegraph to New Orleans. The reports of the battle of the Inkerman artfully corroborated. The Russian force engaged is stated to have been seventy thousand, while that of the Allies did not exceed thrity thousand. The Russians are reported to have lost nearly fifteen thousand men in that engagement. Reinforcements, at the rat c of a thousand a day, are reaching the Allies. Forty thousand Turks have been ordered to the Crimea. The Russians are likewise receiving large additions to their forces. Everything seems to show that there will be much more and desperate fighting before Sebastopol, before either the fortress be taken or the allies compelled to withdraw. Constantinople advices of the 20th Nov., are to the effect that thirt...

WRITTEN FOR A YOUNG LADY. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 11 January 1855
WRITTEN FOR A YOUNG LADY. O tell me not of faithful hearts, That ever beat so kind and true, The constant bliss that love imparts, The buoyant hopes forever new. O tell me not of days gone by, When all my thoughts were not my own, But let their memory ever fly, As all my happiness hafl flown. Speak not the name that once to me, Was dearer than all other names, For now it only grief can be, And thus my injured heart inflames. O tell me then, where is the balm, To soothe this troubled heart of mine, The peaceful fountain which can calm, And quell these thoughts that would repine. 'Tis not among the mirthful throng That dazzle in the giddy dance, Nor can the dulcet strains of song, The joys of one short hour enhance. 'Tb not where fashions gayest plumes, Adorn the beautiful and fair, For even there the heart assumes The happiness it does not wear. But reason is the shield of might, That can these burning thoughts subdue, Reason the never failing light, To mark the way we should pursue....
