THE GIANT. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 29 June 1856

THE GIANT. BY 4~HAR1.ES MACKRY. There came a Giant to my door, A Giant fierce nnd strong. His Mep was hettvy on the tioor, IIi» arm* were ten yards long. He scowled ami frowned ; he shook the |round : I trembled through and through— At length I looked him in the face And cried. Who cares for you? The mighty Giant, as I -poke, Grew pale, and thin, and .mall, And through his l>ody, as 'twere smoke, I saw the sunshine fall. His blood-red eye* turned blue as skies. He whispered t*oft and low. Is this—l cried with growing pride— Is this the mighty foe? He sunk before my earnest face, lit* vanish'd n,u:te away, And lefi no shadow on HI place Between me and the day. Such Giants come to >trike us dumb— Hut weitk in every part, They melt before the strong man's eyes, And fly the true of heart.

C|K ffobrn Coffin; OR, MRS JONES'S CALIFORNIA MARRIAGES [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 29 June 1856

C|K ffobrn Coffin; OR, MRS JONES'S CALIFORNIA MARRIAGES BV C. S. f. Mrs. Jones was the wife of Mr. .loncs and the match was a California arrangement. Folks did say she came here to get married, but ] know she did not come particularly for the sake of getting Mr. Jonat. If he hadn't "popped the question" I don't believe she ever would have thought of such a thing. But the question was " popped" and the lady said she wouldn't refuse him, and when a lady says that under such circumstances, it's a match as sure as fate—aint it? Well, at all events it was so this time. It is certain she always had a horror of old maids and determined never to be one, and you know folks said she wanted a husband, but other folks have the same feelings, and I really don't think she ever manoeuvred or iutended to entangle Mr. Jones. The young lady's father had three grown up daughters, and never succeeding well in business at home, when he came out here they came with him, and as he went into partnership wi...

Doesticn on House Cleaning. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 29 June 1856

Doesticn on House Cleaning. Doesticks, iv a series of papers written for the .\ etc Forfar, thus describes a phase of " house-clean-ing :" On the last day of this memorable time, I was 'turned over to the tender mercies of a strange cook, ! Mrs. \j. and all the regular " help" being engaged ' in a sanguinary war of extermination up stairs with a multitude of interlopers who had colonized the i bedsteads, and who were strong enough in number and nihei wise to have offered an effectual resistance hud they been united : but not being unanimous in their opposition, they were overcome and sacrificed in detail. Biddy, the stranger, is probably a good girl at heart, but she has her little eccentricities. Having been previously informed by her mistress that she had to prepare my supper, she had exerted herself and filled all the bottles in the castor-stand ; this was commendable, but hud she been more discriminating in her selection, the result might have been more agreeable to my feelings....

The Dog that had no Owner. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 29 June 1856

The Dog that had no Owner. We woro hatlllhag Hill High Canada, in the winter of 18:>;>, and after a very long day 's ride, stopped at the Lion Inn : and the contents of the stage, numbering about nine jiersons, soon gathered together around the cheerful fire. Among the occupants of the room were observed an ill-looking cur, who had shown his wit by takiiig up its quarters in so comfortable an apartment. After a few minutes, the landlord entered, and observing this specimen of the canine race, remarked : •• Fine dog. that. Is he yours, sir ?" appealing to one of the passengers. '• No. sir." " Beautiful dog! Yours sir ?" addressing himself to a second. •• No," was the blunt reply. •• Come here, pup; perhaps he is yours, sir ?" •• No," was the reply. •• Very sagacious animal; belongs to you, I suppose sir?" •• No, he doesn't." " Then he is yours—and yon have a treasure," thio.ving the animal a cracker. " No, sir. he is not." '' Oh! (with v smile) he belongs to you...

Some Nose. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 29 June 1856

Some Nose. The following incident we had from a friend who knew the parly. llcacon Oomstock, of Hartford, Conn., is well known as being provided with an enormous handle to his countenance, in the shape of a huge nose; in fact it is remarkable for it* great length. On a late occasion, when taking up a collection iv the church to which the deacon belongs, as he passed through the congregation every person to whom he presented the bag seemed to be possessed by a sudden and uncontrollable desire to laugh. The deacon did not know what to make of it. He had often passed round before, but no nek effects as these had he ever before witnessed. The deacon WW fairly puzzled. The secret, however, leaked out. He had been afflicted for a day or two with a sore on his nasal uppendaire. and hail placed a small piece ol sticking plaster over it. Pining the awraiag of the day in question the plaster had dropped off. and the deacon, wring H, aa lie supposed, ou the floor, picked it up and stuck it on ...

EDITION FOR THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 29 June 1856

EDITION FOR THE CITY. Judge Terry and the Committee of Vigilance. Throughout the past week the most unremitting exertions have been made by the friends of Judge Terry to create a reaction in his favor, and bring an outside pre-suie to bear upon the tribunal that has been trying him. The affidavits which report the transaction in a light mote favorable to the prisoner than the first statement, have been printed in large numbers and scattered broadcast over the State. They are so evidently got up to order, however, that they will do little damage Hut the friends of the accused have not stopped here. They have made strenuous efforts to induce the press to maintain a tone on the subject which. if it did not promote, would certainly not hinder the prog rose of the reaction they were endeavoring to create. In tome cases they were successful, and the mild, milk-and-water articles that were the result, are among the curiosities of newspaper literature. To cap the climax, a long letter is in...

The Terry Case, as Seen through Legal Spectacles. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 29 June 1856

The Terry Case, as Seen through Legal Spectacles. Judge Shattuck, v member of the judiciary in this city, who is above reproach in that capacity, and a gentleman whose opinions are entitled to weight, as being those of a good, upright man, has published a letter in which he claims that, as we are de facto in a stute of war, the attack of Terry upou Hopkins was not a criminal act. The reasoning based on this position is logical enough, hut a little too redolent of lawyers' pleading to have great weight iv the present emergency. The position that we arc in a state of war is by no means sustained, and consequently the arguments built up on it fall to the ground. The derision with which the Governor's proclamation, declaring San Francisco in a state of insurrection, was received, furnishes sufficient evidence that the existence of war was not a general, or to any extent even a partially prevading sentiment in our community. Business went on with its accustomed regularity ; the Courts co...

CITY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 29 June 1856

CITY NEWS. Tun Foindlinu and the Motiieii.—Miss Catherine Walker was yesterday brought before tbe Mayor on a charge of petit larceny, made by J. B. Taylor, for stenling a bed blanket. After her arrest it was discovered that the defendant was the mother of the foundling which attracted so much attention a few weeks since, ft seems that she was a woman in humble circumstances in Philadelphia, and having been overtaken in a disreputable transaction lo which humanity is liable, she came to California a few mouths since, to avoid ciposure among her friends. On her arrival she obtained a situation as a servant girl m the house of Mr. Eagan, where she gave birth to an illegitimate child, which she placed at the door of Mr. Haynes, who called the attention of the authorities to the child, and tbe Hoard of Supervisors made an appropriation for its relief.

Metkoi-outan Theatre.—On Monday evening Mrs. Julia Dean Hayne and Mr. Pope made their first appearance before a California audience in the play of the mmMaek The house was densely crowded, and the new candidates for public favor uproariously received on their first entrance. In the first scenes the impression produced by Mrs. Hayne in the character of Julia was not a favorable one. In fact it may almost be called a general disappointment. Her elocution and movements were too studied, too deliberate. She had evidently not attained thnt high perfection as an artist which euables tbe performer to disguise the art by which effects are produce:!. Her voice, too, was rather weak, and lacked clearness. In the subsequent scenes she was more successful, but did not succeed in eliciting any marked demonstrations of enthusiasm from theaudience. Her acting was classic aud correct, but ber triumphs ;.s an actress do not include the performance of Julia, which has long been...

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. XX.—" Is it true that a certain amount of muscular actiou which is accomplish quickly, is not as fatiguing ns the Same exercise extended through a longer period of time by slowness?—and if so, why ?" We quote the following philosophical explanatiou for Tour benefit: "As enimal ]>ower is exhausted exactly in proportion to the time during which it is acting, as well as in proportion to the intensity of the force exerted, there may often be n groat saving of it by doing work quickly, nlthough with a little more exertion during the time. Suppose two men of equal weight to ascend the same stair, one of whom takes only a minute to reach the top, and the other takes four minutes; it will cost the first but a little more than a fourth part the fatigue which it costs the second, because the exhaustion lias relation to the time during which the muscles are acting. The quick mover may have exerted, perhaps, one-twentieth more force in the first instance, to gi...
