EDITION FOR THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

EDITION FOR THE CITY. Two Pictures. Thorp arc two organized bodies of men in this city, both armed, and maintaining hostile attitudes towards each other. One of these originated in a necessity for reform, a necessity utterly unavoidable and which admitted but one mode of remedy. That mode was adopted. Justice, long trampled tinder foot, rose to her natural dignity, tad assertnl her authority in the execution and banishment of men who had for years cursed our community with their presence and misdeeds. Every obstacle that malice could suggest, or an unscrupulous minority execute, has lieen thrown in the way of this regenerating power; temptations to hasty action, such as few could withstand, have tiny and again been offered them : misstatements and misrepresentations by the score ap|iearod against tin-tit in sheets which never stopjied to contradict them even on the publication of the most thorough refutation. They have lieen branded as traitors, accused of all the crimes which sland...

The Prospect of War. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

The Prospect of War. The great question which, with the Kansas agitation, is dividing the attention of newspapers at the East, is the prospect of war between the United States and England. We do not consider any of the points in dispute between this country and Great Britain sufficient to occasion a war, particularly when it is considered that the people of the latter nation are as much opposed to a contest with the United States as they were in favor of a war with Russia. If such a struggle should ensue, i it will be the work of the British aristocracy, not \ of the English people. To the interests of the latter a war would be fatal, but this would hardly be considered by those who rule Great Britain, provided their objects could be attained. The real occasion of war. if it occur, will be a collision between the forces of France or England and the Americans, who have gone to Nicaragua. As the existing government of Nicaragua has been recognized by the United States, our government ...

Lies Beget Lies. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

Lies Beget Lies. If any evidence of the unholy character of the undertaking in which the " law and murder" presses are engaged were needed, it might be (basal in the misstatements which are daily given to the public through their columns : ihflOfWlliadh<Ulai of which, however full and convincing, never see the light in the tpiarter where those misstatements originally appeared. Outrage after outrage by the V igilance Committee are manufactured and chronicled, only to be succeeded by others, until the work of contradiction has hecosae so onerous that it has bean almost abandoned, and the slanders are allowed to go for what they are worth. Fortunately the papers in which they appear have entirely lost the confidence of the community, and the extent of their influence is about c<|iial to the amount of candor their arguments manifest. One of the latest instances of this character was j the account of the arrest of Cunningham. To read the law and murder account of t...

The Theatrical Revival. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

The Theatrical Revival. Amusements have been languishing in San Francisco for mouths. We have had no series of dramatic performances, worthy the name, since the departure of Miss Davenport, and theatre-going has grown as uufashionable as it has been tiresome to those that by chance were occasional attendants at dramatic performances. Next week, however, promises to give us a theatrical revival. A joint stock company have taken the American, among whom are several clever artists, and Miss Caroline Chapman, a host in herself. And although the opening of the Metropolitan under such flattering auspices hardly augurs well for the continued prosperity of the American, it is not impossible that the public, after their long abstinence, may be inclined to an indulgence in amusement which will support both the temples of the drama. At the Metropolitan, Miss Julia Dean ITayne appears to morrow evening. This lady has a high reputation at the East, and although to the old residents in California...

The Proposed Editorial Convention. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

The Proposed Editorial Convention. Some of the interior papers are advocating the assembling of an editorial convention in this city, for some mysterious purpose of fraternization, and, it is said, for the establishment of a uniform scale of prices to be charged for advertising, Jfcc The motives actuating the journals engaged in this movement we believe to be good, but we entirely disapprove of the action they propose to take. If there have been errors committed in the conduct of newspapers in this State, if the fraternal feeling which it would be pleasant to record the existence of does not exist among our journals, it is the result of causes which cannot be controlled by any convention. In conducting a newspaper, the pens devoted to its service should be trammeled by no rigid rules previously agreed on in a general council. The conscience of an editor should be his principal guide, and when its requirements conflict with the courtesies of professional intercourse, the latter, not ...

The Jewel Consistency. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

The Jewel Consistency. We have been much amused, during the discussion of the recent exciting events in this city, at the inconsistency displayed in the arguments of the papers and persons advocating the "law and order" side of the i|iiestion. To say nothing of the course of the *Herald*, which in communications and editorials has completely reversed the position it occupied in 1851, the conduct of several prominent men in the opposition movement to the Vigilance Committee, displays the most absurd inconsistency. Thus Volney E. Howard, General of the "law and order" forces, holds his office in violation of an express provision of the State Constitution and has been prominent among those "personal responsibility" men who hold all codes subordinate to that of honor. The *Herald* a short time since published a list of subscribers it had obtained in Sonora by its "law and order " attitude in the present crisis, and one would suppose that those gentlemen never had been engaged in any tra...

The Army of Vigilance. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

The Army of Vigilance. The tieautiful moonlight nights of the past week have afforded an opportunity for evening parade which has not been neglected by the patriots BBuV r arms in defence of the [leoplc's rights. Drills of infantry or cavalry have been of nightly occurrence, and the proficiency which the amateur soldiery have attained in the few weeks of practice that have lieen afforded them, would be matter of surprise in any other than an American community, ne was a well-informed Knglish statesman who declared our countrymen to ha the most warlike paoajl on the face of the globe. America unites the French military efficiency with an aptitude in maritime maiueuvres not excelled by the people who sound in every quarter of the glolie the notes of " Rule Hritannia." and while her sons equal the tJaul in the ardor of their warlike enthusiasm, they are not less stubborn in endurance than those troops by whose obstinacy Waterloo was won. It is our cherished aopa that this spirit will n...

Yesterday. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

Yesterday. The crowning net of the People's Committee took place yesterday. Hardly had the intelligence of the stabbing of Mr. Hopkins by the leader of the law and murder faction spread among the passers in the streets to the distance of a block from the locality where the deed was done, when the tolling of the bell at the Committee rooms announced to the members of the body to which the State owes its regeneration, that the crisis had arrived, that the time had come for action. And swift as the flight of the swallow was the rush of patriots to their head-quarters, and ere half an hour had elapsed thousands of men were under arms, and ready for the necessities of the hour, eager to vindicate justice and maintain their rights. The first manifestation was at the banking house of Palmer, Cook, & Co. It was surrounded, and no one permitted egress till it was ascertained that the felon-judge had taken refuge in the armory, at the corner of Jackson and Pacific streets. Thither...

The Senator Sustaining the Congressman. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

The Senator Sustaining the Congressman. It is a little surprising that the dignified individual who represents our State in the I'nited States Senate should have thought it necessary to delend the killing of a waiter by a Congressman. The circumstances attending that deed must have been of a character calculated to excite the indignation of even such a community as many believe California to be. to call for a Senatorial apology for a Congressional assassination. And a dim idea that it would not do to fall back on aristocratic position for support must have flitted through the mind of Senator Walter, as he penned his address to Hubert's constituents in California. Perchance he even dreamt that our community would not be content with our Congressman's engaging in such an astray, and might in their future action take heed that such men should not again go to Washington to represent us—that if such a deed should ever again stain our national escutcheon, it would not be a representative ...

CITY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

CITY NEWS. The Excitement of Yesterday. No more difficult task was ever presented to the reporter than a concise narration of the events of yesterday, and to give them fully we will take the initiative movement in the SEIZCRE OF ARMS. For the past three days rumors had been rife that a large amount of State arms had been sent for repairs to the armory of the prison at San Quentin. The fact of there being any arms there was magnified into a complete armament and garrison. Rumors of this nature reaching the Vigilance Committee, a vessel fully manned and armed was sent to cruise in the straits, with orders to overhaul any suspicious cralt. Early yesterday morning the sloop Julia was boarded whilst in Raccoon straits, and her cargo, consisting of six cases of muskets, seized. The vessel was in charge of Reuben Maloney, a well known McDougal partizan of this city, nssisted by a volunteer crew, consisting of John Phillips, of the County Treasurer's office, one McXab, and Joshua Creary.

The Position of Walker. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

The Position of Walker. The defeat of the Costa Hicans by the cholera, and the recognition of the filibuster dynasty by the U. S. government has given an upward tendency to stock in Walker's enterprise. And although the confidence born of the recent news has not inspired sufficient confidence in the Nicaragua steamship agency in this city to cause their issuance of advertisements in any other form than " for San Juan del Stir or Panama," the intelligence is certainly more favorable for the pigmy Cortes than heretofore, and his downfall will be less speedy than we previously had reason to ho]ic. We take the late intelligence from Nicaragua, as we received that which preceded it, with a grain of allowance. Walker's expedition has never bad the elements of permanent success in it, and has not now. He is not the taan to regenerate any country. Neither his capacity nor his principles are those of a great man. nor those which will build up a great Stt te. Those who have gone to join him a...

The Fourth of July. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

The Fourth of July. It is stated that the entire force of the Vigilance Committee, of this city, will parade on the coming nuniversarv of our National Independence. No more fitting celebration of such a day could lie given than by the co-operation of such a body of men. No better reminder of Revolutionary days, or more perfect tribute to the memory of Revolutionary heroes could be given than by men engaged in the moral revolution that has swept over our State in the past month, urged on by the baud of patriots known as the Vigilance Committee. What the Sons of Liberty were in 1776, the Vigilance Committee are in 1856, and posterity will not honor them the less that their triumph has been a bloodless one. Like the patriots of old they have pledged to the success of the Revolution •• their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor." We have not had for years an appropriate celebration of the Fourth of .fuly in San Francises. The appropriations which have lieen made by Common Counc...

GENERAL GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

GENERAL GOSSIP. * * Some time since, in the Nicholas circuit court, Ky„ Mr. Garrett Davis was bullying a witness named Roberts, and derisively called him captain, when the following dialogue took place :— Witness—" I am no military man, Mr. Davis, but when you are elected President, I hope you will give me a commission." [Laughter.] Mr. Davis (furiously)—" If I were President, the first thing I should do would be to have you hung, sir!" Witness (with a quiet bow)— "Thank you Mr. Davis, but if I live until you become a President to have me hung, life will become a burden." * * The Courier says :—To give the English some idea of the extent of our domain, which they have recently talked so much about annihilating at a single blow, we would state that the distance between the cities of New York, and New Orleans, is more than equal to that separating London from Constantinople, or Paris from St. Petersburgh. By the land route between New York and Astoria, the distance is equal to that be...
