Empiricism floods the columns of our press with fraudulent aud fictitious letters, singing paeans to the worth of their own egotistical charlatanism. Below we append a letter from a worthy man, who, a brief period since, seemed destined to "shuffle off this mortal coil;'- who looked forward to his dissolution with that pleasure which only those weighed down hy the heavy hand of disease can. Contrary to hope, the ability of a skillful physician hat restored him to his former health.

DID SHE LOVE HE ! [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

DID SHE LOVE HE ! BT PllL. Did she love me! Ask the Zephyrs; List! the Zephyrs, what they say; 'Mona; her curls they played and listened. When she gave her heart away, When she in my arms a-weeping In her first great passion lay. Did she love me ? Ask the moonbeam, Ee'n as now, so then it shone, O'er her face as calm as holy, Beautiful as angel's own ; When our souls lirst trenihling worshipped Love upon its Passion-throne. Did she love me* Ask this ringlet Of her silky golden hair; From her brow to me she gave it, Ere the death-damp gathered there; Sweet reminder, far more precious Than the crowns that mon.rchs wear. Did she love me! Ask the willow. Drooping low its head, depressed. Weeping dewy tear-drops nightly O'er her jieaceful place of rest; And its leafy tongues doth whisper Sadly of a love unhlest.

The Grape in the East. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

The Grape in the East. The vineyards of Syria abound in the most luscious grapes imaginable, of which there are different kinds ; one called the walnut, takes its name from its size, being as large as that fruit ; another is the long grape; and another is small and round. There are other kinds lieside, which it is unnecessary to mention. Tin: Knglish hot-house grape, good as it is, does not bear comparison with the Syrian grape. The qoantitv grown is enormous. Did the Syrians know how to make wine, Syria would soon become the wine mart of the world. What are not aged as gropes, the natives dry into raisins, and the process is thus :—The grapes are gathered in September, waejbed in acomposition of lye. water and oil, after which they are spread on a mat to dry, and there they remain lor about a fortnight in the open sun, sprinkled once or twice every few days with this composition ; they are then gathered and put into sacks of hair cloth, and sold as raisins. Some grapes are made int...

Women's Judgments. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

Women's Judgments. Women remark manners fur more than characters. The mental force which might be compressed and pointed into a javelin, to pierce quite through a character, they splinter into tiny little darts to stick all over the features, complexion, attitude, drapery, &c. How often I (says Forster,) have entered a room with the embarrassment of feeling that all my motions, gestures, postures, dresses, &t\, were critically appreciated,and self-complacently condemned ; but at the same time, with the bold consciousness that the inquisition could reach no further. I have said within myself—-" My character, that is the man, laughs at'you behind this veil; I may be the devil—lor what you can tell; and you would not perceive, neither, if I were an augel of light."

Or the symbols may be transmitted as a telegraphic message, in fuil confidence that none but the receiver to whom it is addressed will get at the interpretation.

Grimaldi's Presentiment [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

Grimaldi's Presentiment Grimaldi had a profound dread of the 14th day of the month. At its approach, he was nervous and disquieted : directly it had passed he was another man again, and invariably exclaimed in his broken Knglish, " Ah! now 1 am safe for another month." Yet he at length died on 14th of March. He was born, christened, and married, on the 14th of the month.

£ /rrr press. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

£ /rrr press. BY PIOXKKR. So many anil conflicting are the opinions as to what constitutes a free press, ami so delicate are the distinctions between the use and abuse of a weapon so potent for good or ill, that it is no easy ta-k to properly define its duties, its rights, and its limit, in the field of criticism. The existence of so much conflict of opinion argues a general want of knowledge and correct appreciation of the subject, or else demonstrates the fact that prejudice or intcrct rules the judgment of many persons. Hardly can two individuals be met with, whose opinions will be found to agree as to what constitutes a free press, and how far its functious extend. The writer has opinions of his own on this subject ; whether they an; right or wrong, they are fortified in his mind by strong couvictions as to their correctness, and he is ready to defend them to the extent of his ability. Let us begin by giving our definition of What a Free Press is —It is a leader and spokesman of...

Pensive Admirers Preferred by the Ladies. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

Pensive Admirers Preferred by the Ladies. I have remarked that the generality of my sex, prefer those of the other sex who are of a "grave and sentimental turn, provided alwuvs that the gravity does not proceed from dullness; but from a reflecting cast of mind, which increases their respect, while it adds in the interest they experience. I have known a pale face and jiensive manner make impressions on female hearts that had successfully resisted the attacks of ruddy countenances and exhilarating gaiety : these possessors of these agraeMM being more calculated to amuse than interest, are rarely remembered when absent. W omen seldom forget the man who makes them sigh; but rarely recur to him who has excited their mirth, even though a brilliant wit may have been displayed in his txm seats and good stories. He, therefore, who would captivate the fastidious lasle of la beau must eschew too frequent smiles, though he inav have tine teeth, and must likewise avoid occasioning or promoting t...

The Pooled Irishman. During the conflict with Great Britain a number of our troops were engaged in repairing the fortifications of Niagara ; and whilst so engaged the enemy commenced a pretty sharp Ira, so that it occupied nearly the whole of the time of our forces to keep on the look-out for the shots of the enemy. Finding they did not make much headway, they stationed a son of the Emerald Isle to give warning when a shot or shell was comingThis the sentinel Faithfully performed, alternately singing out • shot," " shell."
