NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 8 June 1856

NEWS OF THE WEEK. The mail steamer Sonora arrived on Sunday last, bringing two weeks' later intelligence from the Eastern States and Euro|>e. She brought over eight hundred passengers. All was quiet on the Isthmus, and prompt measures had been taken by the Government at Washington to cbtam redress for the late outrages. Xo news had been received of the missing steamer Pacific. Ogden Hoffman died on May Ist. He was father to Judge Hoffman of this city. A new minister has been sent by Walker's government to Washington, in the person of Padre Vegil. The most strenuous efforts were being made to induce the President to receive him, and acknowledge the existence of the filibuster republic. If this is true, it will seriously complicate our relations with Great Britain, as at last accounts that power had blockaded Greytown, was preventing the landing of recruits for Walker, and rendering aid to Costa Rica. Walker has sustained further reverses. The Costa Ricans had driven his fo...

GENERAL GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 8 June 1856

GENERAL GOSSIP. * * The London lUuttrated Timet says:—" I have seen private letters from the Crimea, which speak in tbe moat extraordinary way ofthe suffering at present undergone by the French army. It seems to be agreed by all that a frightful mortality is certainly raging. Some of these letters state that the French soldiers are actually in rags, that they come and collect the offal and broken meat rejected by our troops, and one letter goes so far as to state that several French soldiers had been seen begging in our lines for food. If these accounts be true, which I take the liberty to very much doubt, they contrast oddly enough with the description of the recent fetet in Paris and the statistical accounts of the Imperial Prince's I layette, Ac, which have filled the columns of French and English newspapers." * * Mrs. Emma Willard, of Troy, possesses a new remedy for sea-sickness, which consists in forcibly expelling the impure air from the lungs, and filling tbem with pure air....

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 8 June 1856

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. Thk Rev. Stdnev Smith once said, in writing of kissing : "We are in favor of a certain amount of shyness when a kiss is proposed, but it should not be continued too long ; and when the fair one gives it, let it be administered with warmth and energy. Let there be some soul in it. If she close her eyes and sigh deeply immediately after it, the effect is greater. She should be careful not to slobber a kiss, but give it as a humming bird runs his bill into a honeysuckle—deep but delicate. There is much virtue in a kiss, when well delivered. We have had the memory of one we received in our youth which lasted us forty years, and we believe it will be one of the last things we will think of when we die." Kid Gloves.—Comparatively few ofthe immense number of gloves sold as " kid" merit that designation. White dress-leather gloves, both for gentlemen and ladies, are very frequently—indeed, most frequently—made of lamb-skiii. Dark-colored leather gloves are frequently ma...

THE SHIP AND THE ICEBERG. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 8 June 1856

THE SHIP AND THE ICEBERG. Our bark was trim, our hearts were light, Ami merrily on sped we, Blue skies above, blew waves beneath, She bounded o'er the sea, And skimm'd along like a thing of life, Nor dreamed of her destiny. With toer living freight of seven-score She plowed the azure deep, Perchance not one amongst them all Reek'd that his long last sleep Would be down midst the coral groves Where slimy monsters creep. In the storm-king's train came the ice, In rainbow colors dressed, Most beautiful to look upon— Close round our ship it pressed ; Onward she rushed with niad ning speed As one with Sends possess'd. Wildly she sped o'er foaming waves. Like a flery war-horse free From the grip of the curbing rein. And crushed the ice-bound sea ; fio rudder could guide, or mortal power Control her destiny. Through the fog that hovered around No sign of danger near. Till a shock and a fearful crash Filled every heart with fear— Icebergs had crushed our fated ship; Swiftly came dark despai...

An Englishman in America. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 8 June 1856

An Englishman in America. Mr. .fnnics 11. Warren, an Knglishman, writes to the Ixmdon Shipping Gazette, from Buffalo, as follows: "I have now made the tour of the States of North America, and think it probable I 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 thempeople. and must confess that if I remained ten years the result would lie the same; and 1 know "very little about them. But upon one point—national pride—men, women, and children are all alike, and the itlea of any nation of Kurope. or the whole of them put together, conquering this country, is perfectly absurd to them. Everybody reads tiie pajiers, and a good-humored urchin used to rate me soundly at Philadelphia for our failure at Sebastopol." There is not a little iv the foregoing. The difficulty with most foreign travelers is, that they pass on too rapidly to ascertain facts, or to gather correct impressions. They o...

Blitz among the Boys. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 8 June 1856

Blitz among the Boys. The progress of Senor Illitz through the ronntry might lie traced by observing the tricks ol the little codgers in the various towns where he may have sojourned. He was lately in Ilollidaysburg, and the Standard says, all the youngsters you meet there are now playing oft ventriloquism or slight of hand. One boy, the other day, borrowed a stick of candy from a comrade, to swallow it and pull it out of his ear. He swallowed it and then twisted himself in various ways to extract it. but at length informed his companion, that he had forgotten that part of the trick.
