SELECTED. From the Rosette. THE BANDIT OF THE ALPS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 5 November 1846

SELECTED. From the Rosette. THE BANDIT OF THE ALPS. I wan journeying from Geneva. in Switzerland, across the Alps, for Italy. In the carriage were three gentlemen besides myself, one of them an intelligent Frenchman, from the neighborhood of Lyons, who was going to Italy for the improvement of his health, which appeared very feeble. We travelled slowly up a winding road of the Alps, during the day, relieving the tediousness of our progress by entertaining conversation and delightful views of the sublime scenery of the country. Mont Blanc was frequently in sight, with its triple snow-peaks; below us the vineyards, the lakes, the Swiss cottages and the herds, formed a picture of rural beauty, while above, winter, with its glaciers and immense fields of snow, seemed to look down as if charmed and delayed by the smiling prospect. It was our design to reach by night a village far up among the mountains, but when we were yet a few miles from it, we paused a moment to contemplate the roman...

THE BURNING OF MOSCOW. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 5 November 1846

THE BURNING OF MOSCOW. The following splendid description of the Russian Capital, and of its conflagration, is taken from "Napoleon and his Marshals," by J. T. Headley: "At length Moscow, with its domes and towers and palaces, appeared in sight; and Napoleon, who had joined the advanced guard, gazed long and thoughtfully on that goal of his wishes. Murat went forward and entered the gates with splendid cavalry; but as he passed through the streets, he was struck by the solitude that surrounded him. Nothing was heard but the heavy tramp of his squadrons as he passed along, for a deserted and abandoned city was the meagre prize for which such unparalleled efforts had been made. As night drew its curtain over the splendid capital, Napoleon entered the gates and immediately appointed Mortier governor. In his directions he commanded him to abstain from all pillage. 'For this,' said he, 'you shall be answerable with your life. Defend Moscow against all, whether friend or foe.' "The bright...

EASY JOE BRUCE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 5 November 1846

EASY JOE BRUCE. BY H. HASTINGS WELD. "The devil!" exclaimed Mr. Joseph Bruce, or perhaps we should rather say Joe Bruce—for as he was a noble, easy fellow, no body thought of allowing him more than a half of a name, or of any thing else which belonged to him. "The devil! I see by the paper that Hawk and Harpy have assigned. I meant to have secured my debt yesterday!" He left his coffee half drank, stumbled over the ftfrihhnlri. and went almost at a run to the compling ntoni of Hawk ami ]lnrp\. Due ha If of that speed the tiny before would have saved his dchi; as it was, he was just in season to ! put his name at the bottom of a dozen and a half preferred ones, to receive ten per cent, lie went ' bark lo his unfinished tirrakfast with what appetite he infill. " Why ilid you neglect this an long, Mr. Bruce!" saifl his helpmate and comforter. •' I meant lo have attended to it yesterday, my dear." '■ You meant! That is always your way, Mr. Bruce.

ELECTIONS ON MONDAY NEXT. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 5 November 1846

ELECTIONS ON MONDAY NEXT. The Whigs of Middlesex, v county which contains more than one seventh part of the population of Massachusetts, have a great duty to perform in the coming election of t.overnor, Lieutenant (Governor, Senators and Representatives. If they come up earnestly to the work before them, they cniinot fail to demonstrate that their strength is undiminished. If the issue were between the Wing party and the Democratic party only, there would ho lillle to fear concerning the result. In the memorable j yo/ir, IS-I.J, when the Democratic party had an | overwhelming majority iv the Senute, and all sorts of revolutionary measures were devised in that | body, there was found among the immediate repre- , swututive*-, of the people, though the majority bei longed to the Democratic party, a sufficient imiiuj her of reflecting men among the majority, who were too conservative to sanction some of tho mdi!- ! cal acts of the oilier house. Some things however that were done, und mo...
