The Demonstration on the Plaza. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856

The Demonstration on the Plaza. The last resort of the " reactionists" was the calling of a mass meeting on the Plaza of all opposed to the action of the Vigilance Committee, fin mors of the most terrible character were in cir CO ration as to the results of this demonstration, but it passed off without any important consequences. It took place on the afternoon of Monday, June 2d. aad was a very comical affair. None but legal gentlemen were very prominent in it, and the crowd only met their frequent attempts with derision and laughter. Col. Baker was received with shoots of contempt, but at last succeeded in making himself heard, but his eloquence was neutralized by the prominent display of such placards as " Bell Cora, S1IUI00." A theatrical display by the same orator, of the American flag, met the same success as his other efforts. On hoisting it, with a view to rallying the law and order forces under ita folds, an ominous incident cccurrcd. The halyards gave way and the flag came ...

Quite a Misunderstanding. A traveler arriving very late at a tavern of a little town in Germany one night, was questioned by the landlord as to the cause of this delay. " I was stopped on the mountain." said ne ; and without further explanation, immediately- retired, giving orders that he should not be disturbed till it pleased him to rise. Alarmed at the near approach of brigands, the landlord went post haste for the guard, and all night the gens d'nrmes sconred the road by which the traveler came, but not a trace of banditti could they discover. Returning to the inn, the captain lingered in the bar-room until the traveler made his appearance, then going up to him, asked how many had attacked him, and how far oil'he had met the robbers. " Robbers!" exclaimed he. " I saw no robbers." " Why. sir, you said you were stopped," exclaimed the landlord. " Ami so I was, by a swollen stream that I had great difficulty in crossing."

The Indians of California. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 8 June 1856

The Indians of California. Editohs Winr. West: Implied by an ardent desire to correct, as far as lies within my power, the many erroneous impressions given at home and abroad by the accounts of various writers on the subject, I have concluded to write for the columns of you, truly "Californian" newspaper, a series of articles illustrative of the general characteristics, manners, customs and dialects of the much maligned, despisud and persucted race of beings, the socalled "Digger" Indians of our State. Having had, in the course of mv mining nnd trading career in the mountains, but a limited scope for observation, and as it is only from my own experience and memory that I am inditing these articles, I hope that some noble spirits, more favored than myself by opportunities, and possessed of a greater degree of talent lor delineation, may be induced, by witnessing my feeble efforts, to correct all errors and omissions, and contribute what they may have learned of the various dialects, ...

Napoleon's Minister of Police Outwitted by Louis XVIII. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 8 June 1856

Napoleon's Minister of Police Outwitted by Louis XVIII. " After the restoration in 1814, among the titled followers of Napoleon who were the most anxious to obtain employment at the court of Louis XVIII, none showed more servility and assiduity to accomplish his purpose than Kouehe, Doe d'Otranto. He at last had a private interview with the King, when he expressed his desire to dedicate his life to his service. Louis replied,' you have occupied under Bonaparte a situation of great trust, which must have given you opportunities of knowing everything that passed, and of gaining an insight into the characters of men of public life, which could not easily occur to others. Were Ito decide on attaching you to my person, I should previously expect that you would frankly inform me, what were the measures and who were the men that you employed iv those days to obtain your information. I do not allude to my stay at Verona or at Mittau ; 1 was then surrounded by numerous adherents; but&amp...

Economy not Always Advisable. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 8 June 1856

Economy not Always Advisable. It is well blown, that telegraphic messages are in wonderfully few words, for the sake of economy, but a more liberal outlay in words wouhl save considerably in feeling and perplexity. A very natural but painful mistake was made some time since, by a Paris telegraph clerk, as follows : A gentleman, the son of a Mad. C, who is a professor al Nantes, wishing to see her upon important business, sent word pressing her to come to him. as lie could not leave his post. The mother hesitated, and after two days of telegraphic correspondence, Mr. ('. received the following communication : " Votre mere deccdec—convoi demain." Meaning your mother—dead—funeral tomorrow, w hen it was intended to say, ■• Votre mere est decidee mm l>endra Ie couvot "Tmm mother has decided she will take the train tomorrow ." , . .. , ~ What a useless outlay of feeling did the saving of those few words and a typographical blunder cost the poor soul!

Antiquity of Porcelain. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 8 June 1856

Antiquity of Porcelain. Pouch in. by which is designated ■ dense body too hard n> be scratched by a knife, translucent, annulOtM and white, was manufactured from a very early period in China. The remote antiquity of" this"manufacture is proved by the discovering of bottles of Chinese porcelain, with inscriptions in that language, in the tombs of Thebes. The porcelain tower near Xankin was built A. 1). 1567 but as early as 163 15. C. it is stated that porcelain' was common in China. Marco Polo, the Venetian traveler, penetrated into China in the thirteenth century, and he describes with much accuracy the mode then, as now employed by the Chinese iii the preparation of their clays. " They collect," he says, "a certain kind of earth, as it were from a mine! and laying it in a great heap, suffer it to be exposed to the wind, rain, aud sun, for thirty or forty years, during which time it is never disturbed, By this means, it becomes refined and fit for being wrought into the v...

Nicolaieff Stripped of its War Establishments. A letter from Nicolaieff gives some details of what is going on at present iv that place, which seems not to allow any doubt to be entertained of the intentions of the Russian Government respecting that port : " Two days back, a commission, composed of five persons, and presided over by one of the heads of the Hoard of Admiralty, arrived here from St. Petersburg, charged with the task of taking an inventory of all that the dockyards and arsenals contained, lt was received in due form by Captain Schigir of the Russian Navy, formerly Secretary of the board of Admiralty in the Black Sea, now dissolved, and at once commenced its operations.

How a Bargain is Struck at Beyrout. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 8 June 1856

How a Bargain is Struck at Beyrout. " A shopkeeper comes to buy a bale of {roods from tlic merchant : lie is accompanied by a broker. The nicrcliaiit understanding the object of their visit, invites them with all the compliments of the Kast to lie seated, and dispatches his servants to fetch them pi|>es and coffee from the neighboring cafe (these are found in every street). See the broker now approach the merchant and whisper to him—they whisper—their faces serving as an index to what is going on between them. The broker now returns to the shopkeeper, and whisjiers to him. as he did to the merchant; he goes and conies between them till he has brought them near to each other's mark. All this time, not an audible word is utcml ; and looking upon the merchant and the shopkeeper, you would suppose they were bent upou out-smoking each other. Having conic near to the point, the broker drags the shopkeeper to the merchant, and nolens volens, links their hands in each other's gra...

Can It Be So? [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 8 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 M 3 gave it its present name on account of 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 ■nighty 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, es|ieciallv with the luxuriant vines of New Kngland. They trailed the country, even including the sea border of .Maine \ inland or the land of vines, lt is therefore probable that eight centuries ago. the climate of New 1 ork was as mild as that of Central and Northern ...

Thomas Carlyle and Charles Dickens. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 8 June 1856

Thomas Carlyle and Charles Dickens. Sneaking of Prussia reminds me that allured by prospects of peace and the talk about a Prussian (in all probability) alliance, in royal and official circles here, Thomas Carlvle is applying himself with vigor to terminate his long promised biography of the great Frederick, ahiuh he more than once has abondoned or suspended, lt will be published iv four volumes next Christmas. There is some gossip afloat, too, about a new work by Charles Pickens, who, as you will have seen, has returned from Paris, and has been more than usually active of late at literary and dramatic public meetings. The origin of the talked of work is an atti.ek made upon the eminent novelist by Count Montalcmbert, the celebrated French writer and politician, who in a recent publication, with more zeal than kuowledge, accused Mr. Dickens of having exciled the poor against the rich in his social fictions ; iv fact of being an Knglish Kugene Sue. Dickens, it is said, intends to pub...

Recipe for a Modern Gent. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 8 June 1856

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 quitkjjsscnce of elegance and fine exterior. Ami bang it is you, dear reader. 1 will tell you that he cares nothing for interior beauty, the beauty of mind ; because ii don't show: Put to our recipe: Take one glossy, beaver hat, one jet-black moustache, one yard-wide neck-tie, one flashy silk vest, one Shanghai coat, the finer the cloth the better', one handkerchief redolent of patchonlie. one pair of straw-colored kids, one pair of tight "inexpressibles," (in common parlance " pantaloons,") aud one pair of excruciating " patent leathers." Place them all iv apple-pie order on some brainless goose in human form : and. lo! you possess a modern gent. Place a jet walking cane betwixt his lily digitals, aud set him promenading in Broejdway.
