A 'KiiSiDhMJE ON THE M ARUUEiSAS.. • [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 9 January 1847

A RESIDENCE ON THE MARQUESAS. by B. Herman Melville. [continued.] But these reflectons now seldom obtruded upon me; l gave myself up to the passing hour, and if ever disagreeable thought rose into my mind, I drove them away. When l looked around the verdant recess in which I was buried, and gazed up to the summits of the lofty eminence that hemmed me in, I was well disposed to think that I was in the "Happy Valley," and that beyond those heights there was naught but a world of care and anxiety. As I extended my wanderings in the valley and grew more familiar with the habits of its inmates, I was fain to confess that, despite the disadvantages of his condition, the Polynesian savage, surrounded by all the luxurious provisions of nature, enjoyed an infinitely happier, though certainly a less intellectual existence, than the self complacent European. "In a primitive state of society, the enjoyments of life, though few and simple, are spread over a great extent, and are unalloyed; but c...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 9 January 1847

Every thing continues quiet in and about Monterey. We have reports now and then that the Californians in small numbers have been seen in the neighborhood. But they have not, we apprehend, sufficient force to carry any important position connected with Monterey. We have a double security at this time in the presence of the Dale. From her a powerful body of men, well officered, can be landed at a moment's warning, should the exigency require it. Our friends, therefore, at a distance need feel no solicitude on our behalf. It is possible that the Californians, in arms at the south, may break up without a battle, and manage to reach here in sufficient numbers to threaten our safety. But this is an event that is hardly to be anticipated; if they break up, there will, in all probability be what there was before, a general dispersion. Our Line of Policy. —The line of policy which the Americans should pursue here, is one involving as much forbearance as may be compatible with the public safe...

From late Unittd States papers [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 9 January 1847

From late United States papers. MORMON PUNISHMENT OF THEFT.— Two or 3 weeks ago, while the advance guard of the Mormons was pasting through lowa, one of their number stole a bag of grain from a farmer. The farmer went into the camp, pointed out the thief, and proved the crime on him. The Mormon authorities sentenced the thief to be whipped, and the farmer went off satisfied. The Mormons then made their man put on a pair of overcoats and administered the punishment with a wisp of straw. SOMETHING CURIOUS.— ln Providence Mr. Boyle is now teaching a class of colored persons the art of Phonography, not one of whom, four weeks ago, knew the letters of the alphabet, but all of whom are now capable of reading any thing that may be written in Phonographic characters. The Mission Ship Warren recently sailed from Liverpool, provided with every thing that human forethought could suggest; for establishing Missionary operations on the West Coast of Africa, and the auspices of the Free Church of ...

THE INSURRECTION IN MONTEREY. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 9 January 1847

THE INSURRECTION IN MONTEREY. To arms! to arms! the Dogs they come! Let each one seize his gun, And lead the battle's fiery van, Though all the rest should run. Remember where Athena's sons Incarnadined the sea, — And when the brave "Three Hundred Fell" In stern Thermopolie. Remember Lode's blazing bridge, Morengo's shaking plain, And Boridino's battle clouds Where Cossacks fell like rain. Remember your forefathers graves, That swell in Monmouth's field; And by their awful spirits swear To sooner die than yield. Remember that dear hearth and home, Round which your childhood flew; And her who watched your parting keel, And waved her fond adieu. Then at each Dog, take steady aim As if for duck or plover, And see your piece don't carry wide, Nor kick it's owner over. Now let the daylight through his ribs Nor heed his dying wail But come not near his deadly spring If still he stirs his tail. Strike down each one, both great and small, That darkens den or door:— They bark so Ioud we scar...

NAPOLEON AND THE DRUMMER. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 16 January 1847

NAPOLEON AND THE DRUMMER. The author of "A year Abroad," writing for the Boston Atlas gives the following pleasing anecdote of Napoleon: "The 'Allée Verte' is a fine Iong avenue with a triple row of lime trees, which were spared by Marshal Saxe, at the entreaty of the ladies of Brussels, when he besieged the city; displaying more gallantry than Wellington, who cut down the Bois de Boulogne, regardIess of the petitions of the Parisian ladies. In 1810, that memorable year when Rome, Amsterdam, Dantzic, Antwerp, and Paris, were cities of the same proud Empire, Napoleon brought his young bride to Brussels, and was received with great enthusiasm and pomp. On the morning after his arrival, mounted on a white horse, he reviewed the troops of the garrison in the Allée Verte, and as the different regiments defiled before him, be remarked a grenadier who bore the chevrons of a sergeant major. Tall and erect, his black eyes blazed, like stars, from a face bronzed by twenty campaigns, while an ...

Hostilities Above. —The war on the Bay of San Francisco, it seems has been amicably adjusted between the belligerents. Capt. Weber, who was in command of fifty or sixty volunteers, was driven into Santa Clara by the Californians, who were some two hundred strong. A flag of truce was past and the leaders on both sides met by appointment. The Californians state their object was not to make war on the American Flag, but to protect themselves from depredations of those who, under color of that flag, were plundering them of their cattle, horses, saddles, and means of subsistence. All they desired was that the property thus taken, without the authority of the Governor General, should be restored; and they on their part, would release their prisoners, and retire quietly to their homes. These terms, reasonable enough, were acceded to, and the parties dispersed, never we hope to meet again as belligerents. No taking of private property without giving ample receipts will be permitted by the U...

LITTLE ADELAIDE LARKIN As perfume leaves the withered rose Thy spirit past'd away, And past'd so silently that those, Who watched its fleeting ray, But thought the soothing dews of sleep Had melted o'er thy rest, And half forgot a while to weep In deeming thee so blest. But thou hast winged thy heavenly flight That sweet look was thy last, And in its soft seraphic light Thy gentle spirit past'd. In vain we strove to keep thee here, To urge thy longer stay, Some sister spirit hovered near And beckoned thee away. Tis hard to spread o'er one like thee The graves dark-mantling pall, For lovely as thou wert to me Thou wert the same to all. And none who saw thee oft before, Or never until then, But wished to see thee smile once more, And hear thy voice again. But thou art gone ! no Father's care, With quick unbidden tear, Was near to list thy latest prayer, Or dress thy infant bier; But round the spot where thou liest low Shall ever more appear The tender flowers that earliest grow, And l...
