Auectjote of the Sultan. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 31 July 1852
Auectjote of the Sultan. Late letters from Constantinople relate an anecdote of the Sultan, which is quite worthy of the Arabian Nights. A rich Armenian had lost a poitfolio, containing 400.000 piastres, and for which he offered a reward of 40,000. The portfolio was found, and the reward claimed by a very honest and poor old man; but the Armenian, in order to esc&amp;pc .payment, then declared that the porifolio also contained a very valuable ring which the old man must have stolen. The affair was brought before the Sultan, who, having ascertained the honesty o£ the old man and the we'i known avarice of his adversary, decided that, as the Armenian declared that his portfolio contained a ring, it could not be the one he had lost, and that he had better return it to the old man and contiu..ue to advertise for his own.'
Jerusalem and M. d.e Rotlis.cliil^= [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 31 July 1852
Jerusalem and M. d.e Rotlis.cliil^ = nuiua^iuiA, Une oi our correspondents at Constantinople, under the date of April Ist, (the first of Aprii!) announces the following original solution by the Divan of the vexatious question of the Holy Places. The four Pachalicks of Syria are to ibe givenuptoM. de Rothschild in exchange for a sum of 500,000,000 of francs, (about 125,000,000 of dollars,) to be paid into the treasury of the Sultan. For a sum of fifty millions france will desist from her pretension, founded, as she says on ancienjt treaties; antf half that sum is to be paid to Russia and England in lieu of their claims. It is not known as yet what title M. de .Rothschild will assume, whether that of king, emir, bashaw or bey, but it is certain that be intends to rebuild Jerusalem and Antiocb, and restore the temple of Salomon and Jerusalem, according to the descriptions of the Old Testament. In the new Jerusalsm there is to be.an exchange, theater, and chapels for every kind of worsh...
PenasylTaslo. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 31 July 1852
PenasylTaslo. Embezzlement. The State Treasurer ,©f Pennsylvania has officially reported to the Legislature (just adjourned) a list of three hundred and Ji)lij public defaulters, (which is the mild term for robbers,) who have in the aggregate robbed that heavily indebted and we'll taxed state of over three millions of dollars! Probably not one ceat on the dolilar will ever be recovered. To do justice to a man's merits, he should be dead or unknown to you. We can never discover any genius in our most intimate friends. Men are like hills: the nearer you approach them the less lofty and steep they appear to be. Probably no one was more surprised to hear that George Washington was elected than the dirty buys who used to shoot marbles with him.. Dr. Casper of Berlin has calculated that the motality among bachelors from the age of 30 to 40 is twenty-seven per cent.; while among marrried men of the same age. it is only eighteen percent. Out of a given nuns,ber, fortyone bachelors only reac...

TERRIBLE EVENTS. MURDER AMD ITS PROMPT PUNISHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 31 July 1852
TERRIBLE EVENTS. MURDER AMD ITS PROMPT PUNISHMENT. In the last number of the St a r mention was made of the disappearance of two Americans known to have been travelling towards this-city from San Diego, and several circumstances were mentioned as justifying the suspicion that they had been murdered,and that the fearful crime had been committed by a Californian named Doroteo Zabaleta and two Sonorcnos who were traced from San Juan to Santa Ann in company with the persons who-hud so misteriously disappeared. The events of the past week have fully justifiod the suspicions which had existed in the minds of our citizens, and expose crimcs.of the mosi awful nature, together with a corresponding retribution. Information was received here on Tuesday that Zabaleta and two others had been arrest--ed at Santa Barbara upon the charge of stealing horses; that an examination had been held, and that Zabaleta had been committed for trial, but that his companions had been discharged in consequence o...
The Execution. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 31 July 1852
The Execution. The sentence was carried into execution at ten o'clock this forenoon, in the presence of a large concourse of citizens. The prisoners were conducted to the place of execution (upon the summit of Fort Hill), by a guard detailed for the purpose and they walked with a firm step, exhibiting no emotion. The Rev. Padre Anacleta accompanied them to the gallows, and remained with them until they were swung off. When the crucifix was presented to them, they kissed it with apparent fervor, and Zabaleta requested that he might hold it in his hand while dying. ¶ When the rope was placed around their necks, they each addressed a few words to the assembly, acknowledging their crime, the justness of their sentence, and expressing themselves content with it. Zabaleta said that his only grief arose from the fear that his relations would be pointed at with reproach. Rivals advised all who heard him, if they ever committed a crime of that nature, to have no associates, or if they did ha...
