THE ROOT OS ALL EVIL [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 20 May 1848

THE ROOT OS ALL EVIL st <aoj nooi». Gold ! gold ! gold! gold: Bright yellow, hard and cold, Mclicn, graven, hammri^d. rolled; , Iteevjr to get, and fijjbt la held; Hoarded, bartered, bought and sold ; Stolen, borrowed, squandered, doled ; >j«rned liy tne youoj, but hnj^ed by the old, 'To tbe xery verje of tlie ehorch-yard mould ; " Price of many o crinv untold : «;-u: goki: yoU : f*M : Good or bad, a lhu»«ad fold. Advice — Never run in debt if you can get any one to treat you. When you find it impossible to ride on your journey, walk. If you think, in resenting an injury, you are sure of getting decently flogged, pocket the affront and walk off with a smile. It is time enough to look savage when you are out of sight. If you have got no hat to put on, wear a cap. If you have got neither, go bear-headed; you will be considered an odd fish. Never refuse any thing offered you, except a kick; because it is not always convenient to return the latter. Never be in a hu...

Dr. BENJAMIN BRANDRETH'S VEGETABLE UNIVERSAL PILLS. INTRODUCED BY HIM INTO THE U. S. IN 1835. "Science should contribute to the Comfort, Health, and Happiness of mankind** WHOLESALE AND RETAIL AT THE STORE OF C. L. ROSS, SAN FRANCISCO, ALT A CALIFORNIA. ON the 18th of May, 1835, these now truly celebrated Pills were first made known in the United States, although in Europe they had been previously before the public for near a century. The American public naturally viewed them with suspicion, but as on trial they were found what thov professed, it was soon displaced by the greatest confidence. They have secured this character, two, under very adverse circumj stances, having to contend with torn base slanders promulgated by those Interested in keeping mankind in a j state of error a* regards to the functions of their bodies. Dr. Brandreth would here impress on hi* friends, and the public generally, that however different may be the action of the Pills at diffrcnt times, that such diff...

El Dorado [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 27 May 1848

El Dorado. the Orinoco, was comprehended under the general name of the Provinces of the Gilded King. The story of this prodigious humbug, which flourished eighty years ago, may not be un interesting to many of our readers, or inappropriate to the enthusiasm of the present time. The annexed account of a fabled country profuse in gold and silver, in quest of which, legions of adventurers — knights of empty purses and still emptier pates—set out, equipped with implements of conquest, to respectably acquire both gold and glory, must be dissimilar, though, to the tale to be told in years to come of the marvellous doings of this day's generation. Perhaps it will appear, done in this style: Once upon a time, with "pickaxe and spade," junk bottle and wooden bowl, "not as the conqueror comes"—but this will do; we will let tbe historian tell his own story. We copy the following from an Eastern exchange: twenty-five feet, and bore upon its capital an immense silver moon, while two living lions...

for agricultural purposes and the earth during the summer season suffers excessive drouth— is as dry as the Sahara desert itself. What secures them in their opinions, invariably, is "a letter from a resident," or " a let. ter from a visitant" "a correspondent," or from a friend of ours "belonging to the Volunteers," "the U. S. Army," 'the Navy" or some similarly responsible personage. For such confirmation they never are at a Ioss and are ably sustained by all manner of productions, such as the political press only knows how to call up. For all the heated and abusive missies with which we have been assailed - for all the slander we have suffered, calumny we have endured for every barking little upstart of a journal supporting powerful doctrine of 'no more territory" has joined in the whirl of denuncK ation, and denied our worth and our resources — for all this, we say, it cannot stay the tide of emigration, or check in the least the growth and prosperity of our country.

Song of the Murrderer [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 27 May 1848

Song of the Buccaneer. Once more our light bark spreads her wings As it mounts with the hillow and skims on its crest, And swift as that bird of the ocean, away Speeds our gallant bark to the chase of the fray. Where the freighted galleon bears over the main, The gold from the west wrung as tribute to Spain, Do we pounce on our prey, and the Don to his cost. Learns that blood-purchased treasure in blood may be lot. In the bright -immer sea, when the rich freight is won. There's a thonwnd grcn island* that hirk in the sun, Where n.ituie wears ever ber loveliest rinile. Where the light-hearted rover may revel awhile. The lightnings may flash in thesto-m-cloudcd iky, The trcpic tornado in iury sweep by. For th* floras hag to guard us hath muttered her charm, He r league of wild spirits 00 loafer may harm. There's a charm in 'he free air, the billowy sea, In the rover's adventures and peri- for me ; Whilo the court 'round their monarch fawn, fli tier, and fear. Each a king «»n the wavo ...
