FROM THE UNITED STATES; [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 14 August 1848

FROM THE UNITED STATES; We have gleaned the following intelligence from the United States from various sources, to all of which we feel indebted. The "Polynesian " of June 17th, says, "it is now nearly eight months since we have received any of our regular files of Newf York and Boston papers." 'What: can't be cured must be endured,' and our readers must be content with such scattering items as we can get second-hand. The intelligence is of considerable importance to every one. Col. Fremont has resigned his commission as Colonel in the U. S, Army and has been appointed one of the Commissioners to adjust and settle the claims due the people of this territory, for which $700,000 has been appropriated. An electric telegraph is proposed from the Atlantic to the Pacific. It is already in operation to St. Louis. The remaining distance is only 2,000 miles, and the estimate is, that the line could; be completed to the Pacific shores for $300,000. ln reply to a call of the House of Represent...
