[COMMUNICATED] Railroad from the Atlantic to the Pacific [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 13 May 1848

[COMMUNICATED] Railroad from the Atlantic to the Pacific It is recommended, that it the project of making a railroad from the Atlantic to the Pacific be seriously entertained by the Government, that a preliminary survey may be made of the route here indicated. From the highest point on the waters of the Bay of St Francisco to which seagoing vessels can conveniently ascend thence in a direction a little south of east, up the valley of the St Joaquin, two hundred and fifty miles, near to and parallel with the river. Thence, between the water communication and the base of the east mountain to the end of the valley, about two hundred and fifty miles more from the last indicated point.

Notice. ON May 9, 1848, in appeal was entered in the Alcalde's Court, in the case of Thompson vs. Mahon, and a petition praying a stay of all further proceedings, until the Governor should determine the matter. On the following morning, the Alcalde presented a decision, refusing to grant an appeal to the Governor, and the stay of proceedings. An appeal was instantly made from that decision, in order that the principle at least, might be tested, whether an appeal could lie to the Governor, or whether the Alcalde had a right to determine, the right to make such appeal. This appeal was entered in Court -- and suffered to lie there unnoticed, to the manifest injury of the appellant This, Friday morning, application was made to the Court, to know if the proceedings would be stayed, until the second appeal to the Governor should be determined. The Court answered, NO. The Court was then asked, if, on application being made, the sale should he postponed. The Court answered, No, -- and remar...

History of Texas [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 20 May 1848

History of Texas [Abridged from the United Service Magazine.] survive the abdication of Ferdinand 7th. It may not be out of place to mention here, that Charles 4th had, at the instance of his Queen, ceded to her paramour. Godoy, the Prince of Peace ! the territory of Texas. The then King of Spain, being an absolute monarch, had the right to do this act; end it would bo somewhat amusing to hear Godoy's claim to Texas advanced. Moreover, on a certain occasion, tho King of France, gave Texas to his financier, Crozart! lishment of Mexican military posts throughout the country of their adoption ; the civil arm was paralyzed — at Coahuila, the seat of government, the Texan representatives were expelled by force, the colonists were unlawfully imprisoned, and their rights and privileges trampled on. But the year 1832 taught the Mexicans what sort of people they had to deal with; for on June 26th, 112 colonists, under John Austin, after some severe fighting took the fort of Velasco, at the m...

territorial government would be early granted them, that the welcome boon of a wise administration of wholesome laws, was a prize already within their grasp. Lulled by the pro mises of our Military and Naval Commandants, who have alternately exercised control over affairs of State, these people have never presumed to question with what powers these representatives of our government were clothed, but deferentially acknowledged the authority conferred upon them sufficient to protect their relationship with each other, as well as to prevent the interference of foreign nations. At this day, this opinion is prevalent, and has only been strengthened by the recent assurances which the press has put forth well founded, of action preparatory to a judicial organization,- having at last enlisted the determination of his Excellency, Gov. Mason. Gen. Kearney, it appears, came here with abundant "authority conferred upon him to establish any system of laws which he believed tho state of the count...
