-—The California ilpcUiiicn [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 6 February 1847
The California Expedition. We are informed, says the N. Y. Commercial, on what we believe good authority, that the government has chartered the Ship Geneva, Susan Drew and Carrol, for the transportation to California of Colonel Stephense's Regiment. It is also said that two companies of regulars, at present on Governor's lsland, are to accompany the expedition. Probably this addition to the force has been made in consequence of the spirit manifested by the volunteers during their temporary residence on the Island. The U. S. Government has refused to accept the services of the companies of Capts. Coy and Thompson, of Boston, for the California expedition. A regiment of infantry under command of Capt. Tompkins sailed from New York for California, in July, and Col. Stephenson was to sail about the 1st of September. About 1,500 troops are on their way around the Cape, while nearly that number are supposed to be on their way across the country. Almost every state furnishes volunteers. Th...

Beautiful. The Portugese give the very poetical name of ajinlios (little angels) to youngsters ????????? they die ; and considering that they ?????????? translated to heaven, without the unpleasant passago through purgatory, instead of mourning for them, they rejoice, putting on their gayest attire ; thus, at their funeral no one appears in black.; and the parents are congratulated instead of condoled with. How much more rational are they who thus meet death with smiles, than those who j look upon him as the King of Terrors.

* Jiin:i, Orn-wi anil 4 alifurnia. Dr. Macgowan, Baptist Missionary in Cliina in a letter recently received from him in the United States, says:— Tho physiognomy of the Chinese, especially those of Tartar origin, so closely resembles that of our Aboriginese, that I find no difficulty in giving credence to the theory which makes the northern part of Asia the point from which the American continent was first settled. A number of junks from the neighboring islands of Japan, have recently been recked on the isles of the Pacific, and on the west coast of the American continent; and that which has for ages been the result of accident, may become an extensive system. It is not unreasonable to anticipate that an emigration will take place from China to America equal to, if not greater, than any that has been known from Europe. I venture to predict that the population of the Pacific States will be composed in no small degree of Chinese. A channel for emigration once opened, vast multitudes f...

"Oh, I promised not to tell it for all the world ! -- No, I must never tell on't. I'm afraid it will get out." "Why, I'll never tell on't a? long as I live, just as true as the world ; what is it. come, tell." "Now you won't say any thing about it, will you?" "So, I'll never open my head about it -- never. Hope to die this minute." "Well, if you'll believe me Mrs. Fundy told me last night, that Mrs. Trot told her that her sister's husband was told by a person who dreamed it, that Mrs. Trouble's oldest daughter told Mrs. Nichens that her grandmother herd by a letter she got from her third sister's second husband's oldest brother's step-daughter, that it was reported by the captain of a clam boat just arrived from tha Feejee. Islands, that the mermaids about that section wore shark skin bustles stuffed with picked eel toes."

Powerful Magnet. A lecturer was dilating upon the power of a magnet, defying any one to show or name any thing surpassing its power, when a man mounted the stand and told him that woman was the magnet of magnets, for, said he, if a loadstone would attract a peice of steel a foot or two, there was a young woman who, when he was a young man, used to attract him thirteen miles every Sunday, to have a chat with her.

Conncil-l-atc EmUrant*-Jndiclary-ConvcnUon. The meeting of the legislative council will form one of the most important eras in the history of California. Their action will have a controlling influence upon the affairs of the country for years. It is nscessary then that they should be careful, cautions and prudent in exercising the powers with which they are clothed, and in executing the trust reposed in them. There will be much for them to do, and much, which designing persons will endeavour to induce them to do that they should refrain from doing. Their first acre should be to enact such laws as are best calculated to develope the resources of the territory, and ameliorate the condition of the peojle.
