THE UNITED STATES AND MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 15 July 1848

THE UNITED STATES AND MEXICO. Within the past threw weeks th< re havo been two arrivals from Mn/.ntlun. The U. &. S. Southampton, at Monterey, and tliv brig Henry, at this port. The intelligence received by the former was a confirmation of the rumors existing here, relating to the probabilities of peace between the governments of the United States and Mexico. The Treaty presented to the United States Senate, by the President, after Hume immaterial modification*, was approved by the Senate, by a vote of . r J7 for the ratification, and 15 opposed to it, and sent buck to Mexico for the approval of that government, and was received at Qucretaro ; but up to the latest dates from Queretaro, a quorum of the Mexican Congress had not assembled. However, it was thought by some that the Mexican government would ratify the treaty by the Sth «f May, while others seem to doubt whether a quorum of Congress could be obtained.

FOURTH OF JULY. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 15 July 1848

FOURTH OF JULY. We never remember to have passed the anniversary of our national independence, in a more agreeable and patriotic manner, than on the 4th inst. At one o'clock in the morning, the thundering of artillery, on shore and from the shipping in port, was heard, awakening the drowsy citizens and inviting them forth to share in the festivities of the day. Early in the day, a large number (comparatively speaking) of citizens mounted on horses, assembled in the public square, and formed a splendid cavalcade, under direction of Lieut. Gilbert, who was appointed Marshal of the day. They then proceeded to the military head quarters, at the Presidio, where they were received with a salute, which compliment was returned with heart/ cheers. After partaking of the kind hospitalities of the amiable and worthy commander of this northern district. Major James A. Hardie, at 2 o'clock P. M. they returned to town, where, after performing various military evolutions in a manner not discrediti...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 14 August 1848

Th American Mechanic. — Whatever may be the " pomp, glory and circumstance," of the great men of this world — whatever may be ihe. dazzling pageantry of high life — -the glitter of fashionable society, and splendid misery of those who believe that "those who think must govern those ■who toil." There is no situation in this world more enviable than that of the plain American Mechanic free for everything for which Heaven designed him untramineled in his opinions, and left to the guidance of his own genius, he walks erect in the full stature of a man. Earning with his own hands the means by which he supports himself; protected by a government which like the sun, sheds its light — its fostering care upon all-— who shall gainsay his right to enjoy the fruits of his labor, in ths way which best may please him? Under our government, produce, industry, and economy are sure to meet with their reward — and it should be remembered by every mechanic.; that the road to preferment and official di...

INTERESTING FOREIGN NEWS The following intelligence has been condensed from the " Polynesian." Later fuom FRANCE. — Since our last issue we have received later news from France. The Republic is established and recognized throughout France without resistance. There is to be one representative for every 40,000 inhabitants — every man twenty-live years of age is eligible to office — all twenty-one years of age to elect by ballot — universal suffrage, and the vote to be secret. The election was to take place on the 9th of April and the Assembly to convene on the 20th To this Assembly is to be submitted the form of government and the framing of a constitution. France teems with restless spirits without employtnent who stand ready to play over the part of the Gracchi. Every grade of society has felt the effect of the revolution. The laborers and operatives have demanded an increase of wages and the duration of labor is fixed by a decree to ten hours per day for al! professions. The follow...

OFFICIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 14 August 1848

OFFICIAL. PROCLAMATION. Head-Quarters, 10th Military Dep't, Monterey, California, July 25th, 1848. Whereas, many citizen's have gone to the Gold Mines of the Sacramento, without making proper provisions for the families they, have left behind them; and whereas, many soldiers tempted by the flattering prospect of sudden wealth, have deserted their colors, to go to the same region, regardless of their oaths and obligations to the government, endangering the safety of the garrisons, and thereby the tranquility of the country: it is made known, that unless families are guarded and provided for by their natural protectors, and unless citizens lend their aid to prevent desertions from the garrisons of the country, the military force now in California will be concentrated in the gold region, to tho exclusion of all unlicensed persons. Persons employed at the mines are reminded that up to this time, they have enjoyed the high priviledge of digging gold on government land, without charge and...

GLORIOUS NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 14 August 1848

GLORIOU S NEWS. RATIFICATION OF THE TREATY OF PEACE. END o F T H E Wi We have received by a Courier from Monterey, bringing dispatches for the military department here, the glorious intelligence of the ratification of the treaty of peace made between the United States and Mexico, as amended and ratified by the Senate of the United States. There is now no longer a doubt about the treaty being concluded. We get the news officially. The mail left Col. Burton, at La Paz, on the 27 ih June, and reached Monterey on the 6ih inst. We have not the exact terms of the treaty, but the most important points are as follows: the boundary is to commence at the mouth of the Rio Grande, up that river to the parallel of latitude which will strike the head of the Gtla, down that river to its junction with the Rio Colorado, and with that to the parallel which will strike the Pacific one league south of San Diago.

THE GOLD MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 14 August 1848

THE GOLD MINE. A few months ago we were in the habit of speaking of the agricultural resources and ithe commercial qualities of California. as being the source of her greatest wealth, and although now they are not inferior to any portions of the world, the soil constitutes but a small part of her wealth, all rests having been absorbed in the working of the mines. The present number of the "Californian" is intended for circulation abroad as well as at home, and will, by giving a minute and general view of the all absorbing topic, the gold mine, be found useful to persons to send to their distant friends. The information which we shall give, has been gathered from actual observation, and from persons who have been engaged at the mines, and from the most authentic sources, as it is desirable that the facts be correctly known through other countries, and especially through the United States. Some time in the spring, Messrs. Marshall and Bennet, in opening a ditch for a tail race for a s...
