THE WAY TO MAKE A TETOPALLER. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 31 October 1846
THE WAY TO MAKE A TETOTALLER. Evaporation, its power—or the ingenuity of tippling rats. ¶ Mr. C. commission merchant of this city is known as an extensive holder of western produce, and his stock is not more noted for its variety than for the superiority of the several articles which he keeps on hand. His percentage on the sales of Monongahela whiskey through the year, would by a man of moderate notions, be reckoned a liberal in-coming. Customers came so quick to purchase, that, to save the trouble of too frequent a recurrence to the barrel, he has been in the habit of keeping a sample bottle in the store, always full, or partially so, for their inspection. He soon learned, however, that 'Sampson,' the negro who staid in the store, was anything but a Washingtonian, and that he tried the strength of the Monongahela oftener than the whole of his customers. Desirous to know if his conscientiousness were as large as his alimentiveness, he said to him on Monday se'n night, 'Sampson, how ...

The News -By the arrival of the Proze Brig, Malek Adhel, Lieut. Comd'g. Wm. B. Renshaw, 36 days from Mazatlan, via San Francisco, we have received late and important intelligence. The Warren anchored off Mazatlan, Sunday, Sept. 6th, found there the Malek Adhel, moored within 150 yards of the mole, sails unbent, and running rigging unrove, and that the next day it was intended to unhang her rudder and haul her up the creek. Capt. Hull immediately determined to cut her out, early the next morning he hauled his ship in close to the bar, about half a mile from the mole, and sent 60 men in the launch and 3 cutters, under charge of Lieuts. Radford and Renshaw, with orders to bring her out, or finding that impossible burn her, on their aproach, the officer in charge made the best of his way on shore, they boarded her without opposition, ran a line out into deep water, unmoored and warped her outside the bar. While doing this, about 250 Mexican soldiers mustered on the mole, another party o...

TO MY MOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 31 October 1846
TO MY MOTHER. My Mother! on thy fading brow is many a mark of care, Thy tale of Life's eventful scenes is deeply written there; And day by day a voice there comes, to whisper unto me, That Time hath for my Manhood claimed the years of Age from thee. And now when in maturer years, the scenes of youth I trace, And mark the saddened smile that oft will steal across thy face, The memory of my wayward way is darkly round me thrown To whisper that by acts of mine that smile hath sadder grown! Oh! cold, indeed, would be my heart, did it refuse to thrill When l recall thy love for me, that was unchanging still! That o'er my spirit ever threw, when l had sought it's power. A spell as sweet as thoughts of Heaven, in melancholy hour. How oft when others faithless proved, and I've gone forth to feel, Amid the world's discordant throng, a loneness o'er me steal, Hath sweet remembrance given me for these poor friends of mine, The thought, that as their love grew faint, it only deepened thine! In ...

No. 13 Vol. l The following is a translation of a description of California written about the year 1822 by a gentleman well acquainted with the territory and its situation as it then stood. DESCRIPTION OF UPPER CALIFORNIA. The name of Upper California is given to the extension of coast laying between the 32d and 42d degrees of North latitude, bounded on the east by the Pacific Ocean, and on the west by the sierra madre or rather by the eastern shores of red river. Some nations have improperly given it the name of New Albion, wishing to obscure the name it acquired on its discovery. Upper California extends to the south as far as old California, on the west to the Pacific Ocean, on the north to the possession of the Anglo Americans; its eastern boundary is not yet marked by Government, but it may extend as far as red river, or as far as the great mountain. It is called upper and likewise new, to distinguish it from old or lower California. lf we prefix its eastern boundary at the gre...

From the Louisville Journal. FOREST MELODIES. I love the fine old forest, That for centuries hath stood, And waved its lofty branches Grandly in the solitude; 'Mid its glories and its graces, A stately grandeur dwells; And Nature's hand there traces All her brght and magic spells. Its shades are full of voices, Ever ringing joyous out; From its trembling whispered breathings, To the storm's wild boisterous shoutAnd its notes, so deeply thrilling, From the dark recesses start, And swell through ether, stilling The quick beating the heart. When the gorgeous robe of spring time Hath arrayed them in its green, And the leaves are bright with dew drops, Glancing in the morning's sheen; Then its full enchanting chorus With a rapture we have heard, For the songs are round and o'er us Of each gladsome forest bird. Or when the sere of Autumn Hath fastened on the leaf And clad the Summer glories With the fading garb of grief; One tearful strain of sorrow Will thy songsters gladly chime, Ere th...

Vol. l The following is a translation of a description of California written about the year 1822 by a gentleman well acquainted with the territory and its situation as it then stood. DESCRIPTION OF UPPER CALIFORNIA. [continued.] The direction of the fathers, without any other person interfering in any way whatever, so that if any one mission has the good fortune to be superintended by an industrious and capacious padre, the Indians disfrute in abundance, all the real necessaries of life, at the same time the nakedness, and misery of any one mission, is a palpable proof of the inactivity of its director. The missions extend their possession from one extremity of the Territory to the other, and have made the limits of one mission from those of another, though they do not require all this land for their agriculture, and the maintenance of their stock, they have appropriated the whole; always strongly opposing any individual who may wish to settle himself or his family on any piece of l...

ITEMS OF NEWS. Just as our paper was going to press we received a copy of the New York Gazette and Times of June 19th, in which we find the following: Oregon Treaty Ratified. The Senate yesterday ratified the treaty upon the Oregon question by a vote of 41 to 14—27 majority. The basis of the settlement of the Oregon question is 49 deg. 30 ms. latitude as the boundary, with the right of the free navigation of the Columbia to England until the expiration of the Hudson Bay Co's charter. June 18th. A bill has passed to a second reading in the Senate, reducing postage in the U. S. to five cents per letter to any distance. English underwriters have raised the rates of insurance on American vessels from 60s. 105 s. per st. making the most of the fears of American merchants from Mexican privateers. The hostilities between the U. S. and Mexico has had a depressing influence upon the money market both at London and Paris. Mexican stock has of course declined. Orders have been sent by the Mini...
