BREATHINGS OF THE HEART. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855
BREATHINGS OF THE HEART. " Though I speak, my grief is not assuaged." — Holy Writ. Four weary years I've passed away Far from my native shore, And one by one my hopes decay, To cheer my heart no more; 'Tis but a little while, and yet The star of hope and joy hath set In a Cimmerian gloom, For oh I I loved them truthfully, But death hath strewed them ruthfully— Deep in the silent tomb. Fain would I dream of days gone by, For peerless Jeannie's sake, Where proud Ben Lomond's shadows lie Asleep upon the lake; But why recall those happy hours t They pasted away like summer flowers That wither in their bloom; Alas I she's wrapt in dreamless sleep, And angels nightly vigils keep Around her silent tomb. Down by the grim crusader's grave, Midst crumbling ruins gray, The ivy tills the shattered nave, Dark'ning the light of day; 'Tis where the holy altar stood, Amidst a quaintly sculptured brood, In death she sleeps profound ; And save the plaintive &lt; :uf hut-dove, Calling upon her...
Model Husbands. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855
Model Husbands. T. S. ARTHUR "Another day's work done, thank fortune!" said Mr. Peterkin. throwing himself, with an air of careless satisfaction, in a reclining attitude on a bench. ''I'm not a lazy man, but I do feel glad, these hot June days, when the sun goes down,'\ A few minutes only did Mr, Peterkin remain in this position. Rising up quickly, as a thought crossed his mind, he added — " Woman's work, it is truly said, is never done. I must hurry off home, and see how poor Mary is getting along. She did not seem at all well when I left her at dinner-time." "You don't expect to cook your supper, do you 1 " remarked an employer in the establishment where Mr. Peterkin was engaged, speaking with a slightly sneering expression. "If cook should happen to be out, and wifey sick," was the smiling answer, :i the kettle would not fail to reach the boiling point through my neglect or indifference. That's a fact." " Every man to his taste," said the other, " But Pm no betty. I suppose you c...
THE WIFE, TO HER HUSBAND IN CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855
THE WIFE, TO HER HUSBAND IN CALIFORNIA. MRS. E. A. W. Spring once agnin puts ou its bloom. And Flora don's her gayest dress: Uer richest garb the earth assumes, And brightest smiles, her sons to bless. Aurora comes in queenly pride, Her radiance flushing all the skies; But what to me her gorgeous blooms t Without the sunlight of thine eyes. Their brightness dearer is by far Than dazzling gems though rich and rare, Nor Cynthia's vest of purest blue Is wrought with jewels half so fair. The rose that climbs our cottage roof Is budding to the morning air— Would that thy hand could pluck for me, Tho first that oped its petals there. The time is long since thou wer't here; Thrice have I watched their infant bloom, Their blossoming hath come and gone, Thrice kept I vigil o'er their tomb. The way-side flowers that sprung within My youthful pathway, loved and cherished, Have like these roses, one by one, Bloomed for a moment, drooped and perished. But yet there gleams a halo'd light Qe'r mem...
Lamartine's Mother. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 10 May 1855
Lamartine's Mother. It was the fate of the father of Lamartine, the great living French poet and orator, to be mixed up with tho first French Revolution. During that stormy period, he, with a great number of bis compatriots, was immured in the prison at Macon. He was not there long, before his wife, with her child, took lodgings opposite the window of the cell which enclosed the republican. She soon drew his attention to herself and his child, which though he could not speak to her for fear of the sentinel, reconciled him in some measure to his captivity, and lessened the burden of his woes. "My mother," says Lamartine, "carried me every day in her arms to the garret window, showed me to my father, gave me nourishment before him. made me stretch out my little hands towards the bars of his prison, then pressing my forehead to her breast, she almost devoured me with kisses in the sight of the prisoner, and seemed thus to waft him mentally all the caresses which she lavished on me."

AGRICULTURAL, &amp;c. Pitt's Double Pinion Eight or Ten Horse Power. THIS Horse Power, as now manufactured by the subscriber, is admitted by those who have purchased and used it, to* surpass, for strength, ease, durability and cheapness of repair, any Power ever offered to the public. Their great superiority over other powers, consists in the plan ot construction. By reference to the cut herewith presented, it will be seen that this Horse Power is just double the strength ol any singleg taredpowsr, and is the only real Double Pinion Power in existence. Notwithstanding it is sufficiently strong and wnrranted to stand the full strength of eight or ten horse.-, it is also warranted to give as much effective or useful power, when driven by one or two horses, as any other power, whether constructed on the endless chain or lever principle. I have, tor the last eight years, manufactured and sold a large number of these powers, during which timo they have been thoroughly te-ted, nnd...
