POETRY. For the Californian. Soft o'er the vale of Angeles The gale of peace was wont to blow Till discord rais'd her direful horn And filled the vale with sounds of woe. (Break) The blood stained earth, the warlike bands, The trembling natives saw with dread, Dejected labour left her toil, And summer's blithe enjoyments fled. (Break) But soon the avenging sword was sheathed, And mercy's voice by ''Stockton" heard How pleasant were the days which saw Security and peace restored. (Break) Ah think not yet your trial's o'er From yonder mountains hollow side, The fierce banditte issue forth, When darkness spreads her curtain wide. (Break) With murd'rous arms, and haggard eyes, The social joys away they fright; Sad expectation clouds the day, And sleep forsakes the fearful night. (Break) Now Martial troops protect the rob, At distance prowl the ruffian band; Oh confidence ! that dearer guard, Why hast thou left this luckless land. (Break) We droop and mourn o'er many a joy, O'er some dea...

BATTLE OF THE RIO GRANDE, May 8th, 1846. OFFICIAL REPORT. Head Quarters, -- Army of Occupation Camp Near Metamoras. May 16th, 1846. Sir:-- I have the honor to submit a more detailed report of the action of the 8th inst. The main body of the army of Occupation, marched under my immediate orders from Pt. Isabel on the evening of the 7th of May, and bivouacked 7 miles from that place. Our march was resumed the following morning. About noon, when our advance of Cavalry had reached the water hole of Palo Alto, the Mexican Troops were reported on our front, and were soon discovered occupying the road in force. I ordered a halt upon reaching the water, with a view to rest and refresh the troops, and form deliberately our line of battle. The Mexican Iine was now plainly visible across the prairie, and about three quarters of a mile distant. Their left which was composed of a heavy force of cavalry, occupied the road, resting upon a thicket of chaparral, while masses of infantry were discove...

The War, -- On Sunday; the 15th inst. a large party of Californians, from 150 to 200 in number, under the command of Manuel Castro, the former prefect of the 2nd disrict, arrived on the river of the Salinas; and took by force every male inhabitant they could find, and made them join their party; they likewise committed many desperate outrages. Thomas O. Larkin, Esq., U. S. Consul, being at the farm of Don Joaquin Gomez was by them taken prisoner, and what his fate may be, where such men as Joaquin de la Torre have great influence, it is hard to say; however report says that Manuel Castro has sent Mr. Larkin to the south if this is true, we have every reason to hope that his troubles will not be greater than those which commonly fall to the lot of prisoners of war, in all civilized nations. About 5 o'clock, on Monday evening, the enemy fell in with a party of Americans, under the command of Capts Forster and Burrows, who were bringing horses from the Sacramento valley, for the servic...

POETRY. For the Californian. To arms, Colonel Fremont! the war blast is blowing! The plunderer in pride and audaciousness scours, Through plains, and o'er mountains, they say they are going To drive thee beyond California's proud shores. Now arm thy batallion, and humble the foe, Redouble thy honours, give falsehood its due; Lay low the bold robber, wherever you go, And make those rebellious in numbers but few. Teach honor to flow, where ignorance reigned, Let every shot by your riflemen tell — And those who without any reason complained, Make them know that good faith doth falsehood excel. Oh strike the bold stroke! brave Stockton commands, 'Tis his wish here to free from oppression and chains, This ignorant people, and put in their hands The means of subsistence, on these fertile plains. Call for help, we'll assist you, with heart, head and hand, Nor flinch from your orders till death strikes us down, But call Fremont our leader, and by him we'll stand, Till the country's recaptur...

The War - It has been our opinion, derived from a perfect and thorough acquaintance with the customs, and nature of the natives of California ever since the insurrection broke out in the town of the Angeles: that many of the insurgents after a lapse of two months, little more or less, would reflect on the entire hopelessness of their undertaking, and would try many means for the opening a communication with the authorities of the United States, for the purpose of presenting themselves, and delivering up their arms. It appears that such, our opinion was not ill founded; it is now the common talk in Monterey, that were a road once opened whereby the people, who wish to surrender themselves, could see that they would not be personally injured, any other way than as being kept prisoners of war; that many of them are at this moment ready, and willing to surrender themselves, to the authorities of the United States, and should this step once be taken by a few individuals, the notice would...

Correspondece of the Editor. YERBA BUENA, Nov. 22nd, 1846. l arrived here this morning from the Sacramento and the North side of the Bay, all is quiet, and the people seem to desire nothing so much as peace, and a settled state of affairs, there have been various rumors of the operations of the forces beIow, but it is difficult to know what to depend upon. Forces are constantly arriving and being sent down to join Col. Fremont; the present emigration deserves much credit for their conduct, almost every person, able to bear arms has turned out, and many of them have left their families to the protection of the officers of the posts, and shouldered their rifles. It is to be hoped, that Col. Fremont with his present force, will soon be able to settle the trouble. The Savannah is lying at Sausalito, the Warren at this place, and the Portsmouth will sail in a few days. Captain Montgomery, and the officers of the Portsmouth have been here some months, and by their gentlemanly deportment a...
