(Correspondence of the Culifornian.) [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 22 March 1848
(Correspondence of the Californian.) Sonoma, Alta California, ¶ March 12th, 1848. ¶ To the Editor :—I have resided in Sonoma about a year. Within that time great improvements have been prosecuted and still more contemplated. When I first became a resident the valley seemed to be a barren waste and the village fast crumbling to decay. Half thatched shanties, unfinished cottages and dilapidated adobe walls were the most conspicuous part of the town and every where visible. Even the old and massive mission house of "San Francisco de Solano," which occupies a central position though constructed after the "gingerbread" order of architecture, at a distance, somewhat resembled the ruins of ancient Rome The "northers" howled through its vacant door-ways and windows as if in mourning for the santisimo padre and timid devotee who had once worshipped there, and grass and wild flowers grow on its crumbling walls and deserted corridors. The population too was sparse and small and business dull, ...

We copy the following from the daily American Star published in the city of Mexico, in relation to the markets of that place. The Markets.— lt is really worth while to take a stroll through the different markets of the city, even if one has no idea of purchasing. We have done so often, and alwayg found something worthy of observation. The principal market, near the palace, seems to be a place of great resort, and almost any article may be found there and at very reasonable prices. Every class of citizens may be seen here, from a soldier on guard to the bare-footed Indian, who brings in chickens and fruits from the interior. *It is not easy to make one's way through the crowd of sellers and purchasers, but the almost infinite variety of things on sale is worth looking at, at least we notice that pomogrnnates and cocoanuts are getting to be abundant. The hens, too, appear to be making their discounts more freely than usual, and give us six eggs for a bit a great improvement on former ...
