FUN, FACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. What Dickens doesn't Write.—lt has been the popular habit to attribute all the best papers in Household Words to Dickens, but the London Literary Journal says that this is a great mistake The writers for that periodical all imitate his stvie but there is rarely anything from his pen in its pleasant pages. Some of the tales of the" Holly Tree Inn " the new Christmas book, are very much in his style but the same authority shows that he did not even write the delightful story of the childish runaway match to Gretna Green. It was from the pen of Mr. G. A. Sala. A series of twelve stories by Charles Dickens, collected from Household Words has lately been translated and published in Paris! and eight of the twelve were by other writers. The privilege of making use of Dickens's name in Household Words is a valuable one, for which he is doubtless paid handsomely ; but there are probably a dozen others who write more regularly and more frequently for it than he does.

AN ANSWER [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

AN ANSWER Brother Jonathan to John Bull. I've listened to your warning, John, Have turned it in my mind, And hold it as yon mean it. Aa something more than kind. I know yoar red-eyed Lion thinks My bird a naughty bird. And every time the Eagle screams, He feels his eholer stirred. Tet, notwithstanding Leo's rage, The Ragle can't be still, B'er ainca he learned to pitch bis voice. On* day at Banker Hill. Sine* then he's tried its compass oft Abroad, on land and main— At New Orleans—at Erie's wave. At Pittsburgh and Champlain. 1 know you've got a giant's strength, A stubborn will, withal. That blows from your chastising roe, Right heavily would fall. But then thara was, in days of old, A giant tall and grum, . - ... Whose spear was like a weaver a beam, And he was overcome. I think your Lion still the same, As when, in days of yore. He left his little Island lair. To growl ul on my shore. For now, as then, he finds a pataae la those dread scenes of strife, Which drains from bleeding E...

As briefly as possible, Martha proceeded to relate all that she had endured from his long silence, as well as the difficulties she had encountered from his not having remitted the means ot support for our hero, as he had promised ; the raising of her rent by the new agent on the death of the late baronet; and what then appeared to her Amen Corner's generous conduct " But I did send you money," interrupted George; " three hundred pounds. Year after year I have anxiously expected to hear from you." " I know it all noir," was the reply. " How my letters could have miscarried puzzles me," observed her brother. " But I will ride over to Newark in the morning," he added, " and see the bankers. I suspect there has been some foul play," headded. "If there has, I am determined to have justice."

©nc of ifft Sjjips. It has often been a matter of amusement to ns to read the various descriptions of new ships in all the verbosity of language of a professional reporter — the singular aptness with which all technical and nautical phrases are dragged in—the profound knowledge which the said reporter possesses of shipbuilding—the model, lines, bearings, strength, capacity, &c, —doubtless inspired by champagne, and a collation on board. One of the " boys" on the Boston Times, the other day, got the mania himself, and the description which he gives of the new ship " Child of the Regiment," shortly to be launched from somewhere, is quite to the point, and to give our readers some idea of the fellow's genius, we cony it entire, merely remarking, by the way, that if she ever makes a vige up the " raging canawl," we are bound to be oue of the passengers.

Origin of Swamps. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 22 June 1856

Origin of Swamps. Vast regions of our globe are covered with these remnants of once bright, blooming flowers. Tlic table-lands of the Cordilleras, in South America, the boundless plains of Siberia, one-tenth of ull Ireland, a large BWHOB of tiermany. part of Scotland, Jutland, and Norway—even the side* and valleys of the Alps, abound with such moors. The Polar circles are not free from them ; there, also, mosses and alga: still grow, and so closely and thickly, that they form, as it were, but one great mass or woody fibre. Their growth is iieculiur ; they add every year new shoots to the upper extremities, while tha lower as constantly change, when dry, into richhunms, but when kept moist, into peat" Thus the famous Tundra, the giant morass of Siberia, is an almost inexhaustible storehouse of this most valuable material. In the United States, it is well known, swamps of enormous extent abound in the South overgrown mostly with cypresses, and containing large peat bogs,"into which ma...

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

Cigan. The finest tobacco in the world comes from the Havana. But tliere is only a limited area in Cuba in which that tobacco is produced ; so that while the tobacco may be of excellent <|iiality in general, the best is the produce of a very small area, and is chiefly used in the island or its presents, a very limited amount going into general consumption. Tobacco, scarcely inferior to that from Havana, has. however, been brought from Trinidad and the southern Kussian provinces. .Manufacture, on the other hand, exercises a great influence over the quality of tobacco. In Algiers, where the climate is most favorable, the cigars arc not smokable, because they are badly prepared. Again, some Knglishmade cigars are of much greater excellence than many ol the cigars imported from Havana, and paying the highest duty as manufactured tobacco • and there is no doubt whatever that it is quite practicable to make cigars in this country which shall be undistinguishable in appearance, ...

A MEED OF JUST PRAISE rpilK INGRATITUDE OK MAN TO HIS FELLOW MAN A is so often met with in life that testimonials, prompted hy the finer feelings of the heart, are oases in the lile of those wh* sacrifice their best days in philanthropic devotion to the alle viation of the ills of frail mortality. Empiricism floods lb columns of our press with fraudulent and fictitious letters singing pa-aus to tbe worth of their own egotistical charlatanism. Below we append a tetter from a worthy man, who, a brief period since, seemed destined to " shuffle off thia mortal coil;" who looked forward to his dissolution with that pleasure which only those weighed down by the heavy hand of discus* can. Contrary to hope, the ability of a skillful physician has restored him lo his former health.

And if ever you d rhsnce to kiss her Tom, (But let this be a se ret lielween us,) Your lips would have been in a blister, Tom, For they're not of a sister's genus. There is something-, Tom, in a sister's lip, When you give a good-night kiss; Which savors so much of relationship That nothing occurs amiss. But a cousin's lip, if you once unite With yours, iv the quietest way. Instead of sleeping a wink that night You'll be dreaming the following day. And people think it no harm, Tom, With a cousin to hear you talk ; And no one feels uny alarau, Tom, At a quiet cousinly walk. But T'.m, you'll find, what I happen to know, That such walks oft grow into straying; And the voice of cousins are sometimes so low. Heaven only knows what you'll be saying.
