Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 19 December 1846

THE CHAIR OF ST. PETERS—The last papers bring us the intelligence of the death of Pope Gregory XVI, the assassination of a Cardinal, and an attempt at a revolution at Rome. These scenes of bloodshed and violence, often follows the death of a Pope, and generally terminate at the election of his successor. The three most prominent candidates for the sacred chair are Cardinals Guestiniani, Frasoni, and Maccara. He who can wield the greatest influence or intrigue the most successfully, will probably get it, unless the Cardinals, in their mutual jealousies, forego their own pretensions and elect one, as they did the last, on the score of merit. We had a long conversation, when at Rome, with Gregory XVI. He received us in the aparment of his private library without any ceremony. He was in a white flannel gown and slippers. His conversation was easy, and rambled to this subject and that, just as the topics presented themselves. He evidently relished a joke, laughed right heartily and took ...

From the Polyw.iian of Oct. 17th. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 19 December 1846

From the Polynesian of Oct. 17th. The New York papers are filled mainly with the European comments upon the Mexican contest, the Oregon question, and particulars of the war. On the night of June 12th the Quebec theatre was destroyed by fire and forty-six lives lost. The neutral consuls residing at Vera Cruz, had protested against the blockading of that port. The New York bark Eugenia escaped the boats of the squadron and got in. Paredes with a powerful army, was to march to Matamoras. Bravo is President ad interim. A revolution in favor of Santa Ana was expected. American citizens were ordered to leave Mexico at eight days notice, but much courtesy has been shown both to persons and property. U. S. ships Saratoga, Dale, and Lexington are on their way to join Commodore Stockton. The Columbus and Vincennes both had orders to join the Pacific squadron. So says the Washington Union. Northern Mexico is thrown open to American manufactures. The war with Mexico.— G. W. Bertrand, son of the...

From the Polynesian of Oct. 17th. DENMARK.— The presence in our waters of His Danish Majesty's frigate Galathea, (the first Danish ship of war that ever visited our Islands) naturally leads us to make some remarks upon that ancient and respectable Kingdom. The Kingdom of Denmark, situated in the North of Europe, contains about 22,680 English square miles, and a population of about 2,200,000 souls, including Iceland, which has about 51,000, and the Faroe Islands, 7000. The population is composed of four distinct races. 1st, The Danes, who form the great mass of the population and occupy the Islands with North Jutland, and three-4ths of Schleswig. 2. The Germans, who possess Holstein, Lauenberg and part of Schleswig. 3. The Frisons, who inhabit the islands along the west coast of Jutland and a part of the bailiwick of Hasum in Schleswig. 4. The Angles; who live between the bight of Flensburg and the Schley, on the Baltic. There are upwards of 6000 Jews in the Kingdom. There is no auth...

Christmas — This is Christmas morn; it brings on its young beams, gladness to nations; the old Cathedral bell, which knolls only the death of Kings, now wakes up and sends its joyous peals far and wide. The fields, the hills, and the groves return the glad echoes. A new joy lights the face of man, a newborn gratitude swells the human heart, the homage of millions goes up in hymns and hosanas to heaven. Our visions travel back over the tumultuous track of eighteen centuries, — over the ruins of temples, the decay of dynasties, the wrecks of empires, to the cradle which held in its infant slumbers the hopes of the world. There dawned into mortal being one destined to break the fetters of sin, and triumph over the tenors of Death. What meekness and joy filled the heart of Her who saw through her grateful tears the hope of Israel. The shepherds went their hasty way And found the lonely stable shed Where the Virgin Mother lay: And now they check their eager tread, For to the Babe, that a...

From the United States papers. The rates of insurance from Liverpool to New York and New Orleans, were yesterday, 25s. and 35s. per cent on British vessels, and 60s. to 105s. on American, This difference arises from apprehensions (real or pretended) that the war between the United States and Mexico will have the effect of inducing the Mexican Government to issue letters of marque against American commerce. We are very much inclined to agree with the author of the accompanying communication, that these fears are ungrounded; and to believe that even if the Government of Mexico was disposed to issue them, it would find no one disposed to take them. Our correspondent says: — Much apprehension has been excited amongst our merchants, that commerce with New Orleans and the ports of the Gulf of Mexico, would be interfered with by letters of marque issued by the Mexican Government; but it appears that such are groundless, as the Mexicans have only two accessible ports in the Gulf, Vera Cruz ...

A RESTITRAL PER MARONASAS [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 2 January 1847

A RESIDENCE ON THE MARQUESAS. BY B. HERMAN MELVILLE. A doubt has existed on the part of some reviewers, whether it is the genuine production of the reputed author. At all events, they unite in considering it a very clever production. We hope soon to see it. The following notice is from the Nevv Badford Mercury: This is a singularly attractive and delightful work. Impelled by the love of novelty and a roving disposition, the author appears to have taken "French leave" of the whaling ship "Dolly" at the Bay of Nukuheva, Marquesas Islands, and after a series of wandering and almost incredible adventures and hair-breadth escapes, at length becomes fairly domesticated at the Court of the "King of the Cannibal Islands." His descriptions of Polynesian Life are characterized with a careless elegance of style which suits admirably with the luxurious and tropical tone of the narrative, bespeaking the practised and accomplished writer rather than the inmate of the forecastle. Such instances of...

NEW YORK TALEVIELRS FOR THE WAR [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 2 January 1847

NEW YORK VOLUNTEERS FOR THE WAR As soon as the Governor's order was received here on Friday, the 1st Regiment of U.S.V. of New York, commanded by CoI. Ward B. Burnett, opened a general rendezvous at Mercer Hall, corner of Broome and Prince streets, preparatory to being mustered by the Adjutant General of the state, which will certainly be in the course of next week. The above Regiment is officered by our most respectable citizens, many of whom are known to us personally, and we will vouch for their doing honor to the Empire City when called into the field. Nine companies are now full and completely organised. They want sufficient men to form a tenth company to complete the regiment.— N. Y. Sun. At Albany, on Saturday, the volunteers were mustering in great force. Several uniform companies have offered their services to the Governor, and received commissions viz: The Republican Artillery, 45 men, famed for their victories in the last war with England; the Emmet Guards, an Irish compa...

YERBA BUENA [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 2 January 1847

YERBA BUENA, 7th Dec, 1846. Messrs. Editors:—ln the present new and anomilous state of affairs in California, I take the liberty of again reminding my fellow citizens, through the medium of your columns, that they are in a land, over which waves that proud ensign of civil and religious freedom, the flag of the American republic; and that their personal rights and privileges are the same here as in any portion of the U. States; which they are equally empowered to claim, and ask our rulers, for the time being, to redress any grievances or inconveniences under which they may at present labour. To this, l am present, induced to allude, in consequence of finding so many of them disposed to acquiesce silently, in whatever our present rulers choose to dictate, fearing to criticise in the slightest manner upon any of their civil or military acts; or ask, through fear of refusal or giving offence; for any new measures or necessary assistance in order to conduct in a better manner the operati...

For the Californinn [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 2 January 1847

For the Californian. Birth of the First King of the Family of Stewart. The second wife of Walter the Stewart of Scotland, was Margery, sole child of the first marriage of King Robert, 1st., upon which Princess the crown was limited by many acts of Parliament, passed in the reign of her father, if her half brother Prince David, (who afterwards ascended the throne,) should die issueless. As this lady on ShroveTuesday, in 1316, was returning from Paisley to the Castle of Renfrew, the principal seat of her husband, she fell from her horse, and dislocating her neck, died immediately, but as the infant she was then pregnant of, was perceived to be alive, the Cesarian operation was performed, and the male child taken from her, receiving no other injury than having a blemish in his eye; from which circumstance the people gave him the name of the Blear-eyed. He became King of Scotland by the name of Robert the 2nd.
