PACIFIC, RAIL-ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 22 December 1847

PACIFIC, RAIL-ROAD. This great project, which on its first introduction was met with ridicule by the ignorant, has already received the approval of both the Committee of the Senate and of scientific men. It is now not only deemed possible, but probable. In the beginning, the whole undertaking excited much contempt ; now, many different routes are proposed. The first agitator of this scheme in the United States, Mr. Whitney, lies devoted years to the furtherance of this design. To those who are familiar with the history of the world, it will not bo surprising that Whitney was assailed with ridicule, and the favorite enterprise of his life, a mark for the sport of wit. Neither will it surprise them, that, as perseverance overcame the obstacles in lm path, as this creat object received the approval of the Senate, us it became known as the giant undertaking of the age, a host of those who had shrunk from the laughter of their fellows, were willing to claim the honor of a plan they had n...

MINERALS. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 22 December 1847

MINERALS. It has long been known that California abounded in Mineral products of almost every description, but until the influx of energetic men from the United Stales, these have lain, like the unfaithful Steward's ta!ent. buried in the earth. Mines of Gold, Silver. Lead, Coal and Iron, are ot length opening on all hamds, of various productiveness. The Quicksilver mine of Messrs. Forbes's, Santa Clara, although somewhat difficult of access, and scantily supplied with water, is estimated to yield 35 percent., and is Very rich; but another, we hear, has very recently been discovered and opened, about three miles nearer the embarcadero of Santa Clara, at the base of the same mountain, tending inward, which lies contiguous to water, and, according to the tests already made, is believed to be equal, if not of superior richness. Its owners are Sen. Don Jose Abergo Hon. John Ricord, late Attorney General of the Hawaiian Islands, William Blackburn, Jacob H. Snyder, John G. Christie, Henry ...

From flu JVew Orlvans Dal! a. A CICERONIAN VOLUNTEER Yesterday morning, nearly opposite the Algiers Ferry, quite a crowd was gathered around a man who had evidently been in the wars— his boots were woundedhis cap very much bruised, and his dingy bluejacket gashed in vaiious places— The face of our returned volunteer was tanned by exposure to the sun and and sands of Mexico, his hands were as red as a beet, and his pug nose ornamented with any amount of pimples His whiskers and moustaches wire as dense as the chaparral between Point Isabel and IMatamoras, and bis liMit blue eyes moved in their sockets with a savage kind* of enthusiasm — He was evidently "higher" thanta should have been, but his heart was in the right place, and from his looks he appeared to be as brave as steel— To a crowd of admiring listeners, composed of cab men in oil cloth ecats, draymen in red flannel shirts, and 'lorn* shore men in every variety of dilapidated and quaint costume, our volunteer thus gave vent t...

COUNTING HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 22 December 1847

COUNTING HOUSE. The fVater Cure.. — We have read various sober, methodical, matter-of-fact descriptions oflhe way in which people are washed clean from disease at the " water cure" establishments : but here is one, supplied by a victim at Brattleborough for the New Haven Herald, which does up the process in a vivid, graphic, numerous kind of Way, highly effective, but probably not a wit less truthful than the'dullest ofthe others — A feeble young man leaves his home and the Qursisg cares of a doting mother or fond wife, and comes here away North among the hills, to seek the will-o'wisp angel of health— in other words, to get his stomach mashed out and his liver put in order. After a Rtgst'l balmy repose, or rather in the midst of a night's -lumbers, in which he dreams of fireside and home and the maternal coffee and toa?t that await his awakening, the door of his chambor opens, and in walks a figure «n shaggy hair and bnre and brawny arms, who Jhakesthe sluraberer and rouses him wit...

POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 29 December 1847

POETRY. TIME'S CHANGES. BY ELIZA COOK. Time's changes — oh! Time's changes, We can bear to see them come, And crumble down the cottage roof, Or rend the palace dome. We can bear to see the flower we nursed, And cherished in the spring, Turn withering from autumn's wind, A dead and sapless thing. The playground of our childish days, May wear so strange a face, That not one olden lineament, Is left for us to trace. The beam's that light life's morning up, May set in misty shade, The stars of pleasure's fairy sky, May glitter but to fade. Time's changes — oh! Time's changes — They may work whate'er they will, Turn all our sunshine into storm, And all our good to ill . The cheek we like to look upon, May lose its downy red, And only carry wrinkled lines, Where once fair dimples spread. The form that's dearest to our arms, May wane from easy grace, The raven tresses shine no more, And grey hairs take their place. But we can lightly smile at all Time's changes, till we find Some well know...
