| Lower California!* an Independent State. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 14 August 1852
Lower California an Independent State. We have it from reliable authority, that active dreparations are on foot to proclaim the independence of the peninsula territory and hoist the "Bear flag." Don Manuel Castro, a native of Monterey and late an officer the Mexican army, it is said, has been silently engaged of late in enlisting men in this and the county of Los Angeles to proceed to Lower California and proclaim the independence of that territory. Rumor has it, that he has been quite successful, and that his followers are now daily making their way over the line in small parties, intending to unite at some given point, and march upon Santo To mas and La Paz Negrete the head of the Mexican authorities in that country, is represented as a timid man, incapable of resisting a well organized effort. His family have taken refuge in our city from the impending storm. Castro is of the opinion that the few Mexican troops in garrison at San Tomas and La Paz, will join his standard so soon a...
More Immigrants. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 14 August 1852
More Immigrants. Two companies of immigrants, numbering about thirty-five in all, have arrived during the past week, and have encamped at San Gabriel. Among the number are several females. One of the parties reported that in crossing the Desert this side the Colorado they found a fine stream of water—undoubtedly the New ,River, which was first noticed by the emigrants in 1849. It is the intention of most of these new comers to locate near this city, and to engage in agricultural pursuits. They will prove a valuable acquisition to our population. They estimate the immigrants on the route, (the Gila,) as not exceeding five hundred.

(For the Los Anoei.es Star.) [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 14 August 1852
(For the Los Anoei.es Star.) California Indians. _ Xhe light that has been thrown upon the ( history of the Indians of Los Angeles qounty, : in the interesting letters published in a series ! in the Star, must have a practical tendency to I ameliorate their condition. No doubt every I philanthropist, upon the perusal of those let- : ters has asked, if nothing pan be done for the : prospective and permanent wellfure of this unfortunate race. In taking up this subject, I hope to suggest such measures as will secure the prospective good of the Indians of this Southern part of California. I regard the policy pursued by Agonts of the General Government towards our Indians as being at war with the interests of the people and of the Indians themselves. That policy has crazed the heads of the leaders of the different tribes, induced pride, self-importance and clan-ships, which had almost ceased to exist ; and had broken in upon the former order of things. It has lead to the abandonment of t...

Arrest of Deserters. Lieut. Smith returned from Santa Barbara on Thursday, having succeeded in securing four of the twelve soldiers who deserted from the military station at Chino a week qr two since. One was also brought in from the Mission, making the total number of arrests five. During the past week, however, the number of desertions also amounts to five, making, when compared with the arrests, precisely an 1 oven thing.'
The Free Lands. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 14 August 1852
The Free Lands. The Free Land Ordinance has passed the Council and received the assent of the Mayor. It provides for the distribution _of the public lands in lots of ten acres within, and thirtyfive acres outside the city boundaries, to each citizen, or, where none is selected inside the city limits, then forty-five outside.

Interest on the British. Debt. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 14 August 1852
Interest on the British. Debt. Up to 1822 the interest on the public debt of Britain was five per cent, per annum. In that year the reduction was made to four per cent. In 1824, the funds were reduced to three and a half per cent; in 1830, Sir Robert Peel effected another reduction to three per cent. The present administration contemplate, or have it in consideration to effect the conversion of the three per cents, to two and a . half per cents. i (From our San Pedro Correspondent.) i San Pkdro, August 13. 1852. | Messrs.

(For the Los Angej.es Star.) [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 14 August 1852
(For the Los Angej.es Star.) I have been told by good authority, that a portion of the confessions of Zabelta and Rivas have been withheld from the public. Why have the committee appointed by the people to examine and receive the cenfessions of those men, a right to the exclusive privilege of knowing that villains are lurking in our .midst, and those equally interested are to be kept in the dark on so important a matter 1 It is also a public talk all over the county that, according to Zabuleta's confession, Mr. Robinson, the Jailor, was bribed to let him (Zabaleta) escape from prison, when he was confined therein — This, taken in connection with the innumerable criminals that have escaped from under hit; charge, looks lather dark, and operates greatly to the prejudice of that individual. Let us have all the facts. A. CITIZEN. " Citizen" exhibits an enquiring mind, and it is but just that he should be answered. The committee before whom the confessions of the criminals were received,...
Quartz Mining. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 14 August 1852
Quartz Mining. In Quartz Mining, we have, during the past year, established at least one important fact— upon the sufficiency of which all other calculations must be based. It is this, that the -quantity of auriferous rock yielding twenty dollars to the ton is beyond any human estimate, and that this amount of one cent per pound of ore, will pay larger profits, when worked on an extensive scale, than can bo obtained from any equal investment known at this-day. At the present time, every well •managed quartz mill in Grass Valley is paying a handsome profit on the capital invested ; and some of them are paying munificently.—[.San Francisco Herald.
Schools. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 14 August 1852
Schools. It is said that Major .Savage will shortly ; open an Indian school on rather an extensive plan, and that he is now building an adobe house for that purpose.

California Silver Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 14 August 1852
California Silver Mines. A gentleman writing from Monterey to the San Francisco Herald, gives an interesting account of the silver mines of the south. We make an extract from his letter : The silver mines of the mountains, on the eastern edge of the Salinas plains, are beginning to attract a great deal of attention among capitalists and miners. The silver mines of the Alisal now contain two distinct veins, about live hundred .yards apart. The old one is a lead ore of silver, containing on the average, about forty per cent of metal, which metal, as has been assayed here, contains from sixteen to twenty-five per cent, of silver; the balance lead and antimony. This .mineral is called by the miners " fusible .ore," that is, it does not require mercury to extract the silver, but is reduced in furnaces, like lead, by tire Some of the richest mines of Guanajuato and theneighborhood of Mexico city, abound in this class of mineral, and in the old Spanish times made the princely fortunes of C...
A Feat in Chemistry. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 14 August 1852
A Feat in Chemistry. During a recent lecture delivered by Profesr sorß. Silliman, jr., in New York, he solidified carbonic gas. This was effected by bringing sulphuric acid in contact with carbonate q£ soda, in a strong iron vessel, capable of resisting an expansive pressure of thirty-four atmospheres, or five Hundred and ten pounds to tho square inch! Professor Silliman stated that this experiment had been given up entirely in France, in consequence of the bursting of several iron vessels, by which several persons hai been killed. But he stated that the iron vessels used on this occasion, had never been known to burst, and ihe experiment was considered not at all dangerous. As a liquid it being in a liquid state in the vessel- was drawn off, a large portion instantly evaporated, and by the evaporation reduced the remainder to the freezing point. In this way several pounds of solid qarbonic acid was obtained. It had the appearance of the whitest snow, and was so cold that by holding...
