Mr. Johnson in New York.
From papers received from Mr. J.A.
Johnson, we learn that his lectures
were to occur iv that city ou Tuesday
and Wednesday evenings, October
27th and 28tll. That our citizens may
Understand how Mr. Johnson prose
cutes his enterprise for the delectation
of the New Yorkers, we append por
tions of a circular of which he had
twenty thousand copies printed and
distributed in the schools, colleges and
hotels of the city. The circular states
that Mr. J. A. Johnson editor and
proprietor of the Santa Barbara Press,
and of tlie Illustrated Weekly Press
of Southern California, has had tlie
chief objects of interest in the six
Southern counties of California, the
semi-tropical portion of the Slate,
photographed by Professor W. F.
James, the photographer of the expe
dition to Egypt and Palestine, which
has been immortalized by Mark
Twain in his "Innocents Abroad." It
took eleven weeks, nearly two thou
sand miles' travel, and cost more than
two thousand dollars gold, to secure
these views, which embrace the or
ange groves, almond orchards, vino
yards, ranchos, cities, villages, old
missions, and scenery of Southern
Two hundred of these views are
presented to illustrate the two lectures
ou Southern California by Mr. John
son, who has resided t here eight years,
most of that time as Editor of the
Press, and who has just spent six
months in traveling over the six
Southern counties, where the photo
graphs were taken, and is able to
give full and r.liable information
concerning the localities most favora
ble for the cure of various diseases aud
the places best suited for agriculture
or business. By the aid of the steie
optlcon these views are magnified till
they are twenty feet square, so that
an audience of three or four thousand
can examine them with perfect ease.
Views of Yosetuite, scenes of the
railroad aud views of San Francisco
and the Golden (late, are also given
as Introductory to the first lecture,
which includes the counties of San
Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ven
The second leclcture embraces tho
counties of Los Angeles, San Diego
and San Bernardino,with views Of tne
orange gloves, vineyards, etc.
Enough is now known of this won
derful region to establish the fact that
Southern California has a climate
equal to any portion of Italy, or of the
world; but it is not generally known
that more than a half a million acres
of land which produces the tig, the
olive, the orange, the lemon, the lime,
the almond, the English walnut, and
the Italian chestnut, all in perfection,
as well as the ordinary cereals anil
ordinary fruits of other States of the
L'nion, has been put upon the market
within a few months past. The territory
represented by these six counties is
almost equal to the whole State of Il
These statements and the genuine
ness of Mr. Johnson's representations
are corroborated by favorable notices
re-published from tlie San Francisco
Alia and Call, Chicago Tribune
and Detroit Post) Tribune and
Free Press, The New York Times of
the 23th notices the lectures as follows:
Mr. J. A. Johnson, editor of the Santa
Barbara Press, opens a somewhat
novel exhibition at Cooper Institute
to-morrow night. He proposes to give
two lectures on Southern California, a
region which he calls "New Italy."
The lectures are to be illustrated by
illuminated stereoscopic views of the
localities, objects, and scenes described
by the speaker. As these views are
taken from nature, and the lecturer is
"to tbe manor born," the attempt to
bring that far-off land to our very
doors cannot fail to be attractive as
well as honestly made.
In a letter to the Santa Barbara
Press, Mr. Johnson states that South
ern California is a land almost as
little known to the intelligent men of
New York iv general as mid-Africa.
This ignorance of our portion of tlie
State, Mr, Johnson is doing his best
endeavors to dispel and If he does not
succeed it will be neither his fault nor
that of the method of eiUlgbteil
which he adopt*.

A subscriber moos the following. It
hilndeed curious and wen worthy of
That most .shrewd ot' modern observ
ers, the Rev. CO. OoltOll, laid it down
OS a truism that "men are tlie same,"
and wrote a book to prove it, yet in
a second volume he is Constrained to
say, "There is an idiosyncraey in
mind no less than in body, for some
individuals have a peculiar constitu
tion, both of head and heart, which
sets all analogy and all calculation at
defiance. There is an occult disturb
ing force within them that designates
them as unclassified anomalies and
hybrids; they form the eOrjM poHicu
her of exceptions to all general rules,
being at times full as unlike to them
selves as to Others." That his second
judgment is the more correct, will, we
think, admit of no doubt, and it is to
one of these anomalies in human na
ture we wish to call attention. In the
Summer of IMS it was the writer's
good fortune to visit the home of Mr.
Samuel Book, near C'onneaut, Ashta
bula county, Ohio, an elderly gentle-'
man, whose extraordinary character
is perhaps without a parallel in
history or romance. His eccentric
ities were not suffered to find their
"way into tho newspapers during his
lifetime, but tbe facts here given are
voched for by a large circle of ac
quaintances, and now that he is be
yond the reach of prying curiosity
there is less restraint in giving them
He was then, as for many years be
fore and afterward, living alone in a
little farm cottage well furnished with
household articles, books, pictures,
mementoes, etc., and as tidily kept as
any in tiie village. Ho was a man of
perhaps sixty-five years of age, of me
dium stature, prepossessing in appear
ance, and, Considering his years, re
markably erect and active. He was
well informed on most of the topics of
the day and un agreeable conversa
tionalist; had given considerable at
tention to mechanical inventions and
in a sort of private curiosity shop he
kept an assortment of models and sev
eral fonts of wood type which he had
whittled out with a jackknife. Hut
what is most unaccountable, this man,
though neither a lunatic nor hermaph
rodite, was living a two-fold life. At
the time of our visit he was dressed as
as lady, and received and entertained
visistors as such. He had on a costly
black silk dress of the "Lady Wash
ington style, a pattern just then af
fected by the most fashionable ladies
of the village. His hair, which was
touched with gray, and when free fell
down on his shoulders, was tastefully
done up and secured under a black hue
cap, becoming his age. The clear coin
pies ion and smooth lace, the unstud
ied air of ease and gracefulness, and
even the insinuating gossip, rendered
the illusion perfect. The dress was
made by the village n/antua-maker,
who reported that he was extremely
fastidious about the lit, showing genu
ine womanly solicitude for all the de
tails. So complete did he enter into
all the thoughts and feelings of a
Woman, that Be was evidently uncon
scious of acting a borrowed part, and
lo all intents and purposes he w as, for
the time being, what he assumed to
be, a woman. At such times he would
speak of himself as Mrs. Buck and of
Mr. Buck as absent. When the morn
ing work was done and Uae liour ar
rived for working in tlie field, the
dress was exchanged for male attire,
and the feminine character gavo place
to one every way masculine. Mr.
BuOk had returned and Airs. Buck was
now absent, and so remained until do
mestic duties called her home in the
evening, when the metamorphosis of
tho morning was re versed.
That this was not a mere childish
conceit is almost demonstrable. There
is every reason to believe that he was
not fully conscious while in one state
of what he had said or done while iv
the other. Such incidents as the fol
lowing are well authenticated, and
were of almost daily occurrence. A
neighbor calls in the morning and
"Mrs. Buck, 1 called to pay you for
that cow."
" What cow?" he asks in surprise.
" Why, the cow I bought of Mr. Buck
"Well," he rejoins with evident
chagrin, "you will have to see him
about it; he didn't say anything tome
about selling the cow , or 1 would have
Opposed it."
By-and-by a lady calls for some ar
ticle of lady's wear and finds Mr. Buck
at home. He obligingly overhauls the
wardrobe, trunks, etc., in masculine
style, but returns with a confused look
and says: "Really, madame, you will
have to wait until Mrs. Buck returns,
for I don't know where to find it." If
the lady called in the morning, as re
quested, the article was forthcoming
at once,ami if the purchaser of the cow
came at noon when Mr. Buck was at
home there was U6difficulty in having
him recall all the particulars of the
contract, as Mr. Buck was always con
scientious in his dealings, while Mrs.
Buck had the reputat ion of being close.
Ou one occasion he went to the dress
maker's to get a new dress for Mrs.
Buck, adding with the utmost naiv
ette, "It will be necessary to go to the
house for the measure, as Mrs. Buck
is quite ill and unable to come over."
Some boys passing the house one
morning commenced blackguarding
the person in petticoats, who burst
into tears and sobbed, " if my hus
band was here he wouldn't see me
abused so." Returning later in the
day, the same person in pantaloons
took after them with a cudgel, yelling
in unmistakable masculine tones,
" Ha, youd—d blackguard.-; I'll teach
you to insult my wife while I'm
The part of the garden set opart for
(lowers was tended exclusively by
Mrs. Buck; that for vegetables, exclu
sively by Mr. Buck. The former de
lighted to arrange little bouquets for
the children; tho latter would drive
them from his premises as intruders.
When Mrs. Buck went visiting she
took her knitting anil gossiped, and
when she received company she pre
pared tea ami hot biscuit in fashion
able style. When Mr. Buck called, it
was to discuss the crops and politics,
and when called upon he would show
his visitors his live stock or his curi
osity shop, often expressing a regret
that Mrs-. Buck could not understand
or sympathize with his inventions and
begrudged him the time he spent upon
them. Mrs. Buck invariably drove
tho intruding cows or swiue from tho
door-yard with a broom-stick; Mr.
Buck with what he could first luy his
hand on. He kept two separate purses
and two accounts. The taxes and
wages of hired heli) were paid from the
sale of crops ami stock, but when he
marketed his butter and eggs the pro
ceeds were invested in articles for the
Household or trinkets for Mrs. Buck.
I rider strong excitement Mrs.
Buck's feelings found vent in tears;
Mr. Buck's occasionally in oaths, but
never rice versa. Mrs. Buck was fond
ofsnuH'and carried a snuff-box con
•tantly about her person: Mr. Buck
could not endure it. Notwithstanding
these and many other differences,
however, they were never known to
come to blows, nnd the tenderness
with which the old man regarded his
Ol her elf hud even a .touch of pathos
ih it. When on his death-bed and
over seventy years of age, he sum
moned Judge Lushing from Jefferson,
twenty miles distant, to make his
will, assigning as a reason: "The
Judge is the only one of my acquaint
ances who neverspokc an unkind word
of Mrs. Buck." He died in 1872, on
the same little farm which lie had oc
cupied for more than half a century.
Of his early history little or nothing
was known, but tradition said he came
from Pennsylvania and that he had
lived the same dual life from boyhood.
Whether it was some inexplicable
hallucinasion, or, what is scarcely
conceivable, twin souls alternately
controlling and sinking into abeyance
in the same body, is an enigma we
leave us we found" unanswered.
