Hur* ha I Xv. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 29 April 1848
Hur* ha I Xv.\\ A NATIVB OF THE tUITfcH STATES. Wo condense from the Southern Literary Messenger, the following very interesting and not improbable identification of the celebrated Marshal Ney, Prince of Moscow, with Michael Iludjph, a distinguished soldier of the American Revolution. Further inquiry may yet ' unravel the mystery, and give to the western continent the honor of having furnished Europe with one of her greatest modern heroes. Michael Rudolph was born at Elkton, in the Slate of Maryland. His parents were either German, or of German extraction. They ere represented as very worthy people, but in humble circumstance and not able, in consequence, to confer upon their children many of the advantages of education or society. Michael grow up hardy and promising iv person and spirit; eager, intelligent, and bold, but illiterate. lie joined the American an. at a very eaily period, as a common soldier, when he was little more than sixteen years of age. We havo reason to believe t...
OUR SCHOOLMASTER. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 29 April 1848
OUR SCHOOLMASTER. AND HOW IIP. CAME TO UK HARRIED. Every body knows tho position of a country schoolmaster in New England, and thai it ii only second to the ministcf, while nt the same time, he is considered a more marketable and cornea comoditiy. Tho minister i*, almost over, a married man: and it ho is not, he has failed ill setting tat most essential example before the rising generation of his congregation. I Jut a married schoolmaster is proof positivo.that the •committeo : have consulted their own taste, instead of tho grown up , girls of their district. * But our schoolmaster was not ■ married man ; and whether tho fact 'hat the head com- ■ mittee man had threo rnarringable daughters, not pledged to vow constancy to any swain, had ny thing to do with tho selection,, is a question which has never been solved for public benefit. The schoolmaster had not been long nrrioug us before the old school house wns ! filled to overflowing; and it i* a remarkable j fact, that that winter t...

OREGON. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 29 April 1848
OREGON. The U. S. Transport Bark Anita, acting Capt. S. E. Woodworth, arrived here on the 27th from Columbia river. Latest dates from Oregon, the 6th inst. Major Hardy was unable to raise any volunteers for the Southern service, in consequence of the Indian war. Col. C. Gilliam, Commander of the Oregon Battalion, operating against the Indians above the Dalles, was accidentally killed by the discharge of a rifle lying in a wagon, when in the act of taking a rope from the latter to picket his horse. Major Lee is to succeed him in command. Governor Abernethy has issued a proclamation, culling upon the Territory for three hundred additional volunteers, to prosecute the war against the Indians. Much complaint is made against Congress, for her neglect to extend official 'jurisdiction and protection over the Territory. The Spectator contains much interesting matter, which we will be under the necessity of omitting until after the publication of the President's Message.
PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 29 April 1848
PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. Fellow -citzens of the Senate and House of Representatives. The annual meeting of Congress is always an interesting event. The Representatives of the States arid of the people come fresh from their constituents to take counsel together for the common good. After an existence of near three-fourths of a century, as a free and independent republic, the problem no longer remains to be solved, whether man is capable of self-government. The success of our adminble system is a conclusive refutation of the theories of those in other countries who maintain that "a favored few" are born to rule, and that the mass of mankind must be governed by force. Subject to no arbitrary or hereditary authority, the people are the only sovereigns recognized by our constitution. Numerous ernigrants of every lineage and language, attracted by the civil and religious freedom wo enjoy, and by our happy condition; annually crowd to our shores, and transfer their heart, not less than their a...

============= ¶ Bathing in Wine—It is not generally I known that wine baths are quite common in Fiance; nevertheless such is the case. The Duke of Clarence is not the only gentleman who has enjoyed an immersion in Malmsey. Punch has tried it with the very best Sherry. Only imagine ! Punch—the veritable English Punch—swimming in French wine, and kicking and plunging, and laughing, until the tears ran down the cheeks, and never thinking of expense—a five franc piece ! ¶ "What? a five franc piece for a tub full of wine? Hurrah! Vive la France !" ¶ "Gently, gently. At least fifty others bathed in the same wine—after Punch. The keeper of the bagnes had a preference for Punch, and gave him the first dip. After him came fifty others—making in all fifty-one five franc pieces. A good juice fur the tub." ¶ "The wine is then thrown out ?" ¶ "Not at all. Not so, by any means." ¶ "What then!" ¶ "Bottled, of course !" ¶ "Bottled ! And for what purpose ?" ¶ "Why for drink, to be sure." ¶ "Drink! w...
