[For the California Star.] Prospects of California. A band of honest, highminded and true patriots, not more than seventy-two years ago, declared to the world that henceforth they were freemen, and England, proud, powerful England had to submit; for, if then she knew not the men who had written this declaration of their independence, she soon afterwards became convinced of her error. She had lost her North American Colonies, "the bright jewels in her crown,"and a narion of freemen had sprung into existence, The powers of Europe, spectators of this eventful drama, gazed with astonishment. applauding secretly the lesson given to Great Britain by the citizens of a country which two hundred years ago was " a boundless wilderness peopled only by a few scattered bands of savages." But mark the benefical influence of our happy institutions. In 1790, the Union consisted of 13 states. It now numbers 30, besides its old and newly conquered territories. In 1790, the population of the United St...

He having signified a readi* ness to enter into stipulations on the part of Mexico, our government, through the agency of commissioner &amp;gt; list, had received proposals, to wit: Mexico to relinquish the territory claimed by the United States, (the California*, New Mexico, and New Leon) — the Uuited States to retain within the Republic a sufficient force to protect tho pcaco-m iking party- President" Annaya wisely conclud...

THE PUEBLO VALLEY [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 1 April 1848

THE PUEBLO VALLEY This is one of the most beautiful vallies in California It is about five miles wide, and forty-five miles in length well watered and possessing all the elements of future prosperity. It has already made great progress in agriculture, and boasts several fine vineyards yielding delicious grapes, and extensive orchards, containing some of the choicest varieties of fruit. The Pueblo San Jose is about sixty miles by land from San Francisco, -- being situated on the main road to Monterey, Los Angelce and San Diego. The soil, after leaving San Francisco about 5 or 6 leagues is extremely rich, and continues to improve as far as the Salinas Plains, which are situated in the neighborhood of Monterey. Some of our finest farms are on these plains. Among other advantages, the Pueblo San Jose possesses almost an immediate water communication with the Port of San Francisco. Vessels of sixty tons burthen can pass over the bar at the mouth of the Estero, with perfect safety at any ...

NAPA VALLEY. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 1 April 1848

NAPA VALLEY. Nature has lavished some of her richest blessings on this fine valley. For beauty and fertility, for its mineral and vegetable wealth, it is known and appreciate throughout California. Some of our most substantial farmers have located there, and large crops of excellent wheat are annually reaped Mr. Yount estimates the average yield of his land at 30 bushels per acre. It has however occasionally amounted to 100 bushels. Mr. Y. sowed ten acres with wheat from which he obtained 250 bushels. The ensuing season the same land yield. ed the same quantity of grain without any cultivation, and without a single seed being sown. This is a remarkable fact, and we are informed is generally the case throughout the country. Mr. Yount has been 14 years a resident of California, and assures us that he has not during that time seen sick wheat, and that his crops have been but seldom injured by mildew. Cheat or Rye grass has never been found in this country. The soil is well suited to th...

FORK OR KING'S LAKE. There is a vast tract of land extending from the Sstli to the 37th degree north latitude, between the coast range and the Sierra Nevada, represented by those who have visited it, as one of the loveliest and most fertile regions they ever saw, abounding with beautiful streams emptying into a large luke, known as Fork or King's Lake. The country, it is said, can be compared to a vast garden, covered with a variety of wild flower' of nil colors, and well provided with timber, The spring or head waters of the San Joaquin are not far distant from this place.

San Francisco. Extracts from a private letter describing the Bay and Town of San Francisco. * * * * * * * About 11 o'clock, A. M. we made land, that at the mouth of the Bay of San Francisco. We all took our stations on deck, and eagerly noted every object as we approached the entrance to, what is said to be the finest harbor of the world. We passed Point Lobo on the right, at 2 o'clock, and soon after began to feel the effects of the tide which, wih a fair wind, carried us on at a steamboat rate. The Fort is situated on a point about 2 1-2 miles from Point Lobo: its position is commanding. A half league farther in and we easily distinguished the Presidio. It consists of a range of one story tired buildings, forming three sides of a square, and is the military head-quarters of the Northern District of California. We were straining our eyes to discover the shipping, when our attention was attracted by some houses and fences which were scattered along in a valley at the foot of one of ...

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 1 April 1848

CALIFORNIA. We present an extract from a private letter addressed eastward, touching the staple productions of California, and introducing many important topics for general discussion.— It is from a highly intelligent resident of Sonoma valley. Whether it be your intention or not to migrate west of the Rocky Mountains, l presume some farther sketches relative to my observations of the climate, soil and productions, made during a five years residence on the Pacific slope of our republics, including Oregon and California — may not be uninteresting to you. My letters from Oregon, you may recollect, were quite favourable to that country. Possessing a mild, genial and healthful climate, much good land — the Willamette in particular — and capable of raising nearly all descriptions of grain and vegetables, it gives pretty good satisfaction to most emigrants, who have as yet journeyed thither; though not finding that imaginary El Dorado, our restless, roving race, are over seeking westward,...

THE GREAT SACRAMENTO VALLEY. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 1 April 1848

THE GREAT SACRAMENTO VALLEY. Is a favored land, and the prodigal hand of nature has enriched it with every requisite to constitute an inheritance of freemen, and here profusely poured forth her choicest blessings. Let us glance at its immense wealth only as it is every day revealed. The valley of the Sacramento is 250 miles in length, and from 20 to 40 miles its average width. The great River rolls through its heart, and its many tributaries impart to the soil a never failing richness. Ascending the main stream, the valley will, gradually as your advance into its bosom may be, open broad, level, and more beautiful. The tributaries of the Sacramento are skirted with timber; the oak, live oak, sycamore, black walnut, the map!e, alder, and the cottonwood, fringe each mountain stream, and form dense forests as you approach the north. To its value as a finely timbered country let us add the important discoveries made of late in this source of wealth. A prolific growth of white and yellow...
