BATTLE OF GUYMAS. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 8 April 1848

BATTLE OF GUYMAS. Lieut. Smith and Passed Midshipman Duncan, with their companies, consisting of 25 men each, and 17 marines under Lieut. Tanfill, landed from the U. S. Ship Dale, at half past one o'clock on the 17th November, 1847, at Guymas, with Commander Selfridge at their head, for the purpose of examining the town and Fort. After halting a short time at the Fort, and taking a view of the deserted appearance and dilapidated state of the town, not supposing for an instant, that a living soul or creature was to be found within its precints, the Captain ordered us to march into the Plaza, for the purpose of examining more accurately the situation and topography of the place. We had not proceeded far, however, before we received a volley of musketry from a window not ten paces distant, two balls of which, passed through the clothes of two men in Lt. Smith's company, and a third through Captain Selfridge's right foot, inflictiug a severe wound; not seeing any person to whom we could...

Cal. Star'o Sonoma Corro.tpondcnco.] [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 8 April 1848

Cal. Star's Sonoma Correspondence.] SONOMA, March 10, 1848 Mg. Editor: -- I had not intended saying more in answer to the very false exhibit made of our social and political state of affairs in California, by "Sober Socond Thought," but for the love of giving truth to the world, whether for or against my countrymen, and also through fear of his articles having an injurious tendency for California at the seat of our National Government. Neither he nor Pacific are writing for California readers, at least but little, since both are aware -- Pacific I am certain— almost every one in this country has fully made up his mind on the subject, and knows that one speaks the truth, the other quite the contrary. Sober Second Thought, in order to send the eyes of readers to the true state of things, labors to prove my articles contradictory in themselves. I admit there is some seeming truth in this; but venture to assort that no political writer, or historian that has ever existed were he to atte...

SONOMA [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 8 April 1848

SONOMA We rt-publish, from our notes of travel north of the Bsy, the annexed description of tho Town of Sonoma Sonoma, ws learn to have been named from an Indian chief of some one of tho Tulare tribes, and of < onsidf-rabl* notoriety. Intelligent and brave, there were probably none from tbe neighboring tribes more renowned or revered. Sonoma was founded in by Gen. Mariano Guadaloupo Vallcjo, and held as a mere military post. With the superlative attractions of an advantageously and prettily located inland town, mild and delightful climate, it m justly commanding a liberal share of the attention of our countrymen, and bid* fair to flourish henceforth in the excess of American enterprise, if not to outstrip many of the venerable seaports of our southern coast. It is situated three ■Ms) and in a northeasterly direction from the Ernbaradera, under a range of hills, the barest mention of which would be well worthy to figure in a chapter of romance ; the country about, broad an...
