Col. Fremont. As a matter of simple justice we feel it our duty to give the public the following version of the story in relation to the cattle which Col. Fremont purchased of Eulogio de Celiz. It is taken from the evidence of Capt. Samuel J. Hensley, given before the committee on Military Affairs of the United States Senate, of which Gen. Cass was chairman. Having published heretofore the letters of Cols. Benton and Stevenison, and thus brought the subject before the public, it is but fair that this statement should have equal publicity: "After the formation of the civil government in California by Commodore Stockton, in Jmniary, 1847, I was appointed by Governor Fremont, commissary of subsistence to the California battalion, in which capacity I made such purchases as were necessary for the subsistance of the troops, paying for the articles purchased by giving my official certificate of the amount due. In dischargee of this duty, I purchased of Eulogio de Celez. six hundred head of...

FROM THE MINES. We learn verbally that provisions are in demand in the mines. The recent heavy rains and snows having made the transportation of goods impossible for a time, the consumption of food and merchandise has been such as to create a fair demand and a slight rise in prices. There is, however, nothing like want or suffering From a gentleman recently returned from the Dry Diggings, we have the particulars of the recent attempt to rob and murder in that place, and the punishment meted to the offenders. They are substantially as follows: On the night of the 18th of January, four men named Montreuil, a Canadian Frenchman; Pepi, an Italian; Antoine, a Spaniard, and Tchul, a Frenchman, went to a house owned and kept by two French - men, where they amused themselves with gambling and drinking- They staid late, and the proprietors of the establishment finally retired, leaving the four men still gambling and drinking. In a short time one of the proprietors fell asleep, and the four m...

The United States. By the arrival at this port of the American ship Chile, we have received files of Amrrican papers up to August 5, 1848. Of course, she brings no late intelligence, but such paragraphs as we can find of general interest will be published in our next number. The Chile, Leach, master, sailed from New-York on the 5th August, laden with stores and property for the Pacific squadron She touched at Valparaiso on her passage, leaving that port for California on the 14th of December. On arriving on this coast she put in at Monterey, remaining there two days. From that port she came here, arriving on Tuesday morning last. Contrary to expectation she brings a small mail and a few passengers. We are informed that the cargo will be unladen here, and that one of its articles is a steam saw and grist mill, for the use of the Navy. We learn verbally by the Chile that the steamer California had not arrived at Valparaiso, though she was daily expected. Another account says that the ...

I ROM CI'SILE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 8 February 1849

FROM CHILE. By the American ship Chile we have dates from Valparaiso to the 13th of December, 1848. The excitement relative to the gold mines in this country is still very great. Merchandise of all kinds is in great demand, and as fast as it arrives is reshipped to this port. In addition to the vessels heretofore announced for California, we find in El Mercurio of December 13, 1848, the Chilian brig J. R. S., brigantine Rayo, schooner Calavera, ship Julia, and schooner L??nbayocana. All these vessels, as well as the six before advertised, will bring passengers and merchandise. — It is said that one of the vessels will bring a cargo of houses complete and ready for erection. "Will Saltpetre Explode?" — The discussion on this question is said to be postponed sine die, and the public mind is now occupied with a more important one, viz: "Will the Alcalde resign?" Where are the proceedings of the recent indignation meeting relative to the course of our present Alcalde and those of the co...

ANI»KY WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 8 February 1849

ANGRY WORDS. BY J. MIDDLETON. Angy words are lightly spoken In a rash thoughtless hour, Brightest links of life are broken By their deep insidious power. Hearts, inspired by warmest feeling, Ne'er before by anger stirr'd, Oft are rent past human healing, By a single angy word. Poison-drops of care and sorrow, Bitter poson-drops are they, Weaving for the coming morrow Saddest memories of to-day. Angry words - oh, let them never From the tounge unbridled slip; May the heart's best impulse ever Check them as they soil the lip! Love is much too pure and holy, Friendship is to sacred far, For a moment's reckless folly, Thus to desolate and mar. Angry words are lightly spoken; Bitterest thoughts are rashly stirr'd; Brightest links of life are broken By a single angy word.

CHICK—CHICK. • i» .1 [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 8 February 1849

CHICK—CHICK. . For an Englishman, we must confess that Sam Slick tells some capital Yankee stories. Here is one, extracted from a recent work, entitled the ' Old Judge " "Pray, how is my old friend, your mother? she must now be well up in years. I hope she enjoys good health?" "Pretty well "replied MasterZeli; "pretty much as usual; she is about, about and stirring, though she complains a little ot rheumatism lately, which father swears is all owing to her having worn her garters too tight when she was a girl; but my opinion is, it was 'Chick, chick, chick!' that caused it " " Chick, chick, chick!' " said the other, "what under the sun's that ? I never heard of such n complaint!" "Lord bless you! ' said Zeb, "I thought that every body that know'd our mother know'd that story. Five years ago come next summer, the old lady made a trip to Halifax, in one of our Digby coasters, to see sister Susannan, that is married in that City to Ted Fowler, the upholsterer, and took a whole lot of l...
