PROSPECTUS. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 15 August 1846

PROSPECTUS. This is the first paper ever published in California, and though issued upon a small sheet, is intended it shall contain matter that will be read with interest. The principles which will govern us in conducting it, can be set forth in a few words. We shall maintain an entire and utter severance of all political connexion with Mexico. we renounce at once and forever all fealty to her laws, all obedience to her mandates. We shall advocate an oblivion of all past political offences and allow every man the privilege of entering this new era of events unembarrassed by any part he may have taken in previous revolutions. We shall maintain freedom of speech and the press, and those great principles of religious toleration, which allows every man to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience.

PROCLAMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 15 August 1846

PROCLAMATION. In consideration that the Congress of the U. States, by virtue of the authority with which it is clothed, has declared by the law of to-day, that through an act of the Republic of Mexico, there exists a state of war between that government and the U. States, therefore I, James K. Polk, President of the U. States by these presents do proclaim the same, and I especially recommend to all persons who hold civil or military employment under the government of the U. S. that they be vigilant and zealous in the discharge of their respective duties. Moreover, I exhort the entire people of the U. S. by their love of country and a sense of the injuries which have obliged them to appeal to the last resort of nations, (and in as much as it consults the means most opportune to abbreviate the calamities) that they would exert themselves to maintain order, to promote re-union, to sustain the authority and efficiency of the laws and to give aid and force to all the measures which may b...

ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 15 August 1846

ITEMS. We understand that Capt. Fauntleroy was to leave his quarters at San Juan, yesterday evening, for another Indian excursion to the mountains. The last news from Capt. Fremont, he had procured horses to mount his company, and was marching towards Castro's head quarters. Our own town is entirely quiet, and the old inhabitants are becoming satisfied with the new state of things. The crops in this country as far as they have matured are good, and the remainder, look promising. The wheat crop was very abundant. We understand that Purser Watmough of the Portsmouth, with a small party, is at the Pueblo above, for the purpose of keeping a lookout for the horse thief Indians. The American Government it is believed will very soon have a steamer on this coast to ply between this place and Panama and the intervening ports. A man just arrived from Gen. Castro's camp informs us that the General had with him only a hundred and twenty men, and that this small number was daily diminishing and ...

NOTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 15 August 1846

NOTICE. Whereas, the authorities of the United States deeming it of the first importance to maintain order and quiet, and to give security to all persons, and to prevent any riot or disturbance in the town of Monterey and its jurisdiction. An order was published prohibiting the sale or disposition of any ardent spirits. Notwithstanding the order, the sailors and soldiers of the United States, as well as persons of this place frequently become Intoxicated. It is therefore evident that persons are still indirectly disposing of liquors. It is hereby ordered that no one is to sell or dispose of any intoxicating liquors whatever, and all persons that have formerly vended liquor, and all store and shop keepers and keepers of public houses are prohibited from keeping any liquors, or wines of any kind or description in their shops or stores, so doing will be considered violation of this order, and will be looked upon with the greatest severity, and punished by forfeiture of their liquors, f...

DtBATE IN THE V. 3. SENATE. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 15 August 1846

DEBATE IN THE U. S. SENATE. In the discussions respecting the bill, which authorized the President to enlist 50,000 volunteers and appropriate $10,000,000 for the prosecution of the existing war between the United States and Mexico, the Senators showed themselves unanimous respecting the necessity of the said measures, but many of them opposed violently the declaration of the existence of war. Mr. Mangum declared, that he was disposed to advocate all the means necessary for the defence of the nations rights, and that in his opinion, it would have been better to decree the enlistment of 100,000 men in room of 50,000; but he added, that it could not be declared that the hostilities committed on the banks of the Rio Grande constitutes a state of war. Mr. Calhoun said that he could not approve of the solemn declaration of war, when in reality none exists between the United States and Mexico. How do we know, said he, that war exists? How do we know that the Mexican Government will not di...

From other sources we have the further news that Gen. Perades crossed the Rio Grande with about 7000 troops and attacked Taylor, which resulted in the entire defeat of the Mexican army, with the loss of their baggage and artillery.

THE RIO GRANDE. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 22 August 1846

THE RIO GRANDE. General Taylor arrived at the Rio Grande on the 28th instant, having, as has already been reported, on his march met two bodies of Mexican troops, who threatened to impede his advance, but prudently abstained from attempting to execute their threats. On his arrival there, he was met by a deputation of civilians from the town of Matamoras who protested against the "invasion of the Mexican Department of Tamaulipas," and on the 11th, General Ampudia having arrived at Matamoras, General Taylor was notified by him to retire to the eastern bank of the Nueces. The notification was of a threatening character, and was regarded by General Taylor as of a belligerent nature, and accordingly he instructed the military commander at the Brazos to consider the Mexican army as in a hostile attitude. A Mexican vessel, or perhaps two, from New Orleans, with supplies for the troops at Matamoras was expected to arrive soon, and General Taylor had also ordered the naval commander at the B...

CALIFORNIA—No. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 22 August 1846

CALIFORNIA—No. 1. This being the only paper published in California, it is desirable, that it should not only be interesting for its news but conducted in such a manner as to make it useful as a history of the country, we have therefore determined to publish a series of numbers devoted to that subject, in which will be embodied the state of the country, public opinion, the circumstances which led to fhe present outbreak, and principles and conduct of the actors. The population of California is estimated at about 10,000, exclusive of Indians, and probably less than two thousand of that number are foreigners, most of these originally from the United States. The latter was rapidly increasing by immigration, while the natives were, if increasing at all, but slowly. The fact became evident, to a few men, that, under the present state of things, this tide of foreigners, would soon fill up the country, and probably change the very nature of their institutions, they were preparing to preven...

Mr. Wm. H. Davis, has been appointed our agent for the Sandwich Islands. Talbot H. Green, Esq., has been appointed Collector for the port of Monterey. We yesterday witnessed the "drill" of the men quartered at the Upper Barracks, under the command of Lieut. Geo. Minor, we have never seen veteran soldiers move, and form with more regular precision, their "light infantry"' exercises strike us as being very perfect, and when they are charging in line, their rush, and the three thrilling cheers, that they give would make an enemy quail, if not give way before these gallant tars. In connection with Lt. M's. command are ten horsemen, well equipped, the number of prisoners they have made, gives the best evidence of their vigilance, it is a useful corps, and we hope to see it increased. Great credit is due Lieut. Minor for the prompt manner in which he has filled his station. Lieut. McLane, of the 1st Dragoons, was in town yesterday. The company has just returned from another indian excursi...

Para el Californio—comunicado. Californio Megico se parece á un arbol en estado de decadencia, cuyas ramas uno despues de otro van cayendo al suelo, los que si no arraiguen de nuevo ó se ingerten en algun tronco sano, deben forzosamente secarse. ¿Porque la California debe adherirse a Megico? Le debo acaso algo de ese cariño, que un hijo debe a sus padres? ¿Que ha hecho Megico en su beneficio? Le ha oprimido con la tirania, en lugar de darle proteccion. Le ha llenado de empleados necesitados, quienes le han mantenido on un estado continuo de revolucion; cuyo objeto en cada caso ha sido, no el bien del pueblo, sino el en grandecimiento de sus opresores! Por su mal gobierno, ha recargado á unos habitantes ya demasiado pobres, impuestos casi insoportables de modo que la mayor parte de las gentes, carecen absolutamente de las comodidades pue en otros paises disfrutan todos. Ha sido causa de la pereza de sus habitantes y de la falta de cultivo de sus campos. ¿Con que gusto pedrá el labrad...

CALIFORNIA.—No.3 [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 29 August 1846

CALIFORNIA.—No. 2. The movement alluded to in our last No which brought about the movement on the part of the Americans at the time it occurred, was an order from Don Jose Castro, to Lieut. Francisco de Arce, at Sonoma, to move with 14 men as a guard, for some horses belonging to the Government which were at the Mission of San Raphel, and report them at Head Quarters, which was at that time, at the Mission of Santa Clara. The Lieutenant was under the necessity of passing up the Sacramento, on the North side to cross at New Helvetia the first point at which the horses could swim the river. On his trip he was seen by an Indian, who came in, and reported that he had seen two or three hundred armed men on horseback advancing up the Sacramento, at a point, that made it very evident, if the Indian had been correct, that Castro was at the head of a large party, with the intention of attacking Capt. Fremont, who was at that time encamped at the Buts, near the junction of Feather river with ...

We have received a communication signed "A Citizen of California," complaining of some nuisances and riding at speed across the bridges. We spoke to the Alcadi, who says that they shall be remedied at once. DISORDER.-- Notwithstanding the untiring vigilance of Capt. Mervine, liquor, in considerable quantity, has been sold to our sailors during the week; quite a number have been found intoxicated, noisy and turbulent. All well disposed citizens should do their utmost for the suppression of this nefarious traffic with sailors. Every thing may be expected from Capt. Mervine, which the most indomitable energy can achieve; but his efforts should be seconded by all who want sobriety and good order to prevail in the community. LAWS. -- Civil magistrates are being appointed in different parts of California, who will constitute the inferior courts, the functions of a superior tribunal are vested for the present in the magistration of Monterey.
