.For tuo Star andCaliforntan. Education a$ it two i# in California. [Newspaper Article] — California Star & Californian — 18 November 1848

For the Star and Californian. Education as it now is in California. MR. EDITOR, Sir :-Instruction viewed in its advancement from the earliest stages of society to what it now is, presents a vast scope for the writer whether philosopher or philanthropist. With a hasty glance over this extensive field I will lightly touch upon its present state in this country, the probable effects of the present system, and trust that if it is shown to be not orthodox and good that some wiser head and more influential voice than mine will come forward to promote a remedy. The world at present is in a rapid state of advancement, and the amount and quality of instruction obtained in youth are the means on which its further progress depends. In the earliest stages of society, instruction only amounted to lessons in the art of war and hunting, but there was a gradual improvement, and in very ancient times, Egypt, Greece and Rome shone forth in unrivalled (12 lines missing, total 17 lines) Does California...

For ']« Star 6 California!). [Newspaper Article] — California Star & Californian — 18 November 1848

For the Star & Californian. New Helvetia, Nov. 3rd, 1848. MR. EDITOR . — I snatch a few moments from that eager and all absorbing pursuit in which the whole population of this land is at present engaged, Governor and the rest of our Military State Officers included, to offer some remarks on that same old question, "Civil Organization" in California, which you have revived in a late number of your paper. Should the "radical" ideas advanced by your Benicia correspondent, who so confidently affirms the correctness of his position and boldly places his name to the article, gain popularity ere steps are taken to place our civil affairs in a better state, I fear his advice to owners and supercargoes of vessels arriving in our ports will be taken, and all semblance of law or government in our territory vanish. Although not coinciding with the Doctor's construction of the President's message, to which conclusions you may be right in supposing certain selfish motives had some sli...

THE HONG OF LIGHTNING [Newspaper Article] — California Star & Californian — 18 November 1848

THE SONG OF LIGHTNING. BY G. W. CUTTER. Could I embody and unbosom now That which is most within me -- could I wreak My thoughts upon expression, and thus throw Soul, heart, mind, passions, feeling, strong or weak, All that I would have sought, and all I seek. Bear, know, feel, and yet breathe -- into one word, And that one word were LIGHTNING, I would speak. [BYRON. Away, away through the sightless air -- Stretch forth your iron thread. For I would not dim my sandals fair, With the dust ye tamely tread ; Ay, rear it up on its million piers -- Let it reach the world around, And the journey ye make in a hundred years, I'll clear at a single bound. Tho' I cannot toil like the groaning slave Ye have fettered with iron skill. To ferry yon over the boundless wave, Or grind in the noisy mill : Let him sing his giant strength and speed : Why a single shaft of mine Would give that monster a flight, indeed, To the depths of the ocean brine. No ! no ! I'm the spirit of light and love. To my u...
