}3"" Our overland Mail for the United States will positively close at this Offiece to-morrow (Thursday) at 10 o'clock. ----------000----------- To Correspondents. -- "F." is unavoidably deferred until next week, owing to the press of other matter. The great length of the article upon sheep has also crowded out the favor from our friend at San Jose, which is in type. ----------000----------- }3"" The peculiar toleration guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States to all religious sects end denominations, is truly a right which cannot be too highly prized by freemen; but it has become a question of considerable moment in these days, whether headlong fanaticism, urged on by designing leaders, may not endanger the peace of communities, and, if unchecked, ultimately bring about the dissolution of our Union. In the history of our country for the last few years may be found ample reason for arriving at this conclusion. -- We allude to the late civil commotions in several of the Wes...

FURTHER FROM THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 26 April 1848

Woodbury of the Engineers, are engaged in building military posts on the route to California and Oregon: one at Grand Island, on the Platte river, and another near Fort Laramie.

To the Editors of the Californian. GENTLEMEN: -- I as an individual member of this community, whose attention you have drawn to the prospects of our future prosperity, and should the necessity of cultivating articles of export which may by some early date become to us sources of a balance of trade, must at this present time express the pleasure afforded me to see a subject of such vital importance brought forward in the columns of your public spirited paper, and would with your permission add my mite, in aid of the advancement of this our adopted land, to the many valuable articles which have lately been penned by Dr. Fourgeaud and other able contributors to both papers. I am of opinion that for the amount of population in California, or for its increase lor sometime at the most reasonable rate we can calculate upon, there i.s at present too much capital and too much attention devoted to mercantile business and to speculation in town lots. A part of that industry and capital that is...

For the Californian [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 26 April 1848

For the Californian Messrs Editors -—Although your columns have, from time to time, been fraught with many accounts describing various portions of this country, I beg leave to state a few general facts illustrative of the real worth and growing advantages of the Sacramento valley, which is already conspicuous in the annals of California ; and is only awaiting the arrival of steamboat navigating to placw it, in the scale of importance, second to no other portion of the country. This valley is watered by a river of the same name, which rises in bold and rugged mountains somewhere near lat. 42° No., runs southwardly till it passes New Helvetia, and then, taking a southwest direction, discharges itself into the bay of San Francisco; The Sacramento river, from its source to the bay, traverses an extent of not less than four degrees of lat. - the mountains which confine its valley on either side, are sufficiently distant to form a valley of from 20 to 50 miles wide. The river is navigable...
