NEWS FROM BELOW. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 29 August 1846
NEWS FROM BELOW. A courier arrived on Thursday night bringing despatches for Capt Mervine, from the Commodore. The commodore with a considerable force had advanced to the town of Angeles, where he was joined by Capt. Fremont. The difficulty of procuring horses had prevented Capt. Fremont from being able to follow Gen. Castro with any hope of falling in with him. There is no mention made of the time when the Congress will probably return to this place. Commodore Stockton made prize of the Mexican Brig Primerara but released her to her owners. The Courier brings verbal news, that a division of the Mexican army had fallen in with the Mazatlan troops under Commandante Raphel Telles, and a battle ensued, which terminated in the defeat of Telles, who with 22 other officers, were shot as rebels. We learn from letters received here, that Acapulco having declared in favor of Santa Anna, all communication had ceased between that place and Mexico—and Santa Anna had proclaimed himself President...
For the Califundan. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 29 August 1846
For the Californian. Messrs. Editors:—The evil of intoxicating liquor has been a theme for conversation, and in fact, for Legislation, in almost all parts of the world, for several years, and it would be a great labor to get up new arguments and new reasons now, for such and such a course of policy, but l am in hopes you will pardon me for making a few suggestions on the subject of the best means of suppressing the too free use of the ardent in this place. For the last thirty years, philanthropic men have been devising the means of stopping the abuse, and the countless miseries which have been produced by it, and it has been within the last six or seven years, that the new principle of "moral suasion" has been adopted;—to find out the best means to accomplish an object, we should inquire into the success of the various means which have been tried. Let us examine the facts. In the State of Mississippi, U. S., "moral suasion" had accomplished so much that a large majority of the Legis...

We have received a communication signed "Amicus." which we shall insert with pleasure. It is a criticism upon our No. 1 Californian, which would not have been called for if he had waited for the appearance of No. 2, which must satisfy all who are not opposed to hearing the truth. The sentiments embodied in Amicus, are our own, and we are well satisfied that not even the Californians will either deny the truth, or object to the sentiment contained in our article on California, our great object in the publication of these numbers is TRUTH and when we speak of those persons who have had the government of this country, it must be very evident to our readers, that we cannot allude to the mass of the people, Although the very confused state in which the country has been kept by successive revolutions, has cut off, to a great extent, the means of educating their children, yet there are many valuable men, and it would be the last of our designs to wound their feelings, yet it it a sacred du...
FOR THE CALIFORNIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 29 August 1846
FOR THE CALIFORNIAN. Messrs Editors: —In reading your remarks relative to California in your last (no. 2) paper, it occurred to me, that it is very doubtful whether the severe invectives you cast on Mexico, is likely to produce a happy result with the Californians, although the latter may have some grievances against the former, yet they are identified with them when viewed as a nation, and can but deeply feel those severe remarks. Their position somewhat resembles the woman, whose husband was beating her, and on a stranger about to chastise him for his cruelty, she joins her husband on his attack on the assailant, so Californians, though treated badly by their own countrymen, can but little relish this attack on them and are likely to join issue against the common enemy. Where reform is desired, l very much doubt the policy of upbraiding a people for their past delinquencies, those acts are passed, and cannot be recalled, you can scarcely expect to conciliate their feelings, by thi...

LAST CASE OF ABSENCE OF MIND.—Two men, who were cutting wood about 4 miles from town, came in to grind their axes. After one of them commenced turning the stone, they remembered they had left their axes in the country. NOTICE. Whereas, the authorities of the United States deeming it of the first importance to maintain order and quiet, and to give security to all persons, and to prevent any riot or disturbance in the town of Monterey and its jurisdiction. An order was published prohibiting the sale or disposition of any ardent spirits. Notwithstanding the order, the sailors and soldiers of the United States, as well as persons of this place frequently become Intoxicated. It is therefore evident that persons are still indirectly disposing of liquors. It is hereby ordered that no one is to sell or dispose of any intoxicating liquors whatever, and all persons that have formerly vended liquor, and all store and shop keepers and keepers of public houses are prohibited from keeping any liq...
CALIFORNIA.—No. 3. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 5 September 1846
CALIFORNIA. -- No. 3. From the facts which took place at the taking of Sonoma, I feel justified in saying that the world has not, hitherto, manifested so high a state of civilization, The reader will remember that the party which took Sonoma, consisted of 33 men, gathered in the country, without officers, or the slightest degree of organization,and with no publicly declared object, and each man having felt the oppression of the then existing government, and the certainty of an increase of those oppressions, with a clear sense of their danger, their rights, and their duty, they rushed to the rescue with one impulse and one object, the watchword was equal rights and equal laws, and they nobly sustained their principles Sonoma was taken without a struggle, in which place was nine pieces of artillery, about 200 stand of small arms, of public property, which was taken possession of. There was also a large amount of private property, and a considerable amount of money, all of which was kn...
A PROCLAMATION [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 5 September 1846
A PROCLAMATION To all persons and citizens of the District of Sonoma, requesting them to remain at peace, and follow their rightful occupations without fear of molestation. The Commander-in-chief of the Troops assembled at the Fortress of Sonoma, gives his inviolable pledge to all persons in California, not found under arms, that they shall not be disturbed in their persons, their property, or social relations, one with another, by men under his command. He also solemnly declares his object to be, first to defend himself and companions in arms, who were invited to this country by a promise of lands on which to settle themselves and families; who were also promised a Republican Government, when having arrived in California were denied the privilege of buying or renting lands of their friends, who instead of being allowed to participate in, or being protected by a republican government; were oppressed by a military despotism; who were even threatened by proclamation, by the chief offi...
I'OTUE PEOPLE OF CALIFORNIA [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 5 September 1846
TO THE PEOPLE OF CALIFORNIA . On my approach to this place with the forces under my command, Jose Castro the Commandant General of California, buried his artillery and abandoned his fortified camp "of the Mesa," and fled, it is believed, towards Mexico. With the sailors, the marines, and the California Battalion of mounted Riflemen, we entered the "City of the Angeles," the Capital of California on the 13th of August, and hoisted the North American Flag. Tho Flag of the United States is now flying from every commanding position in the Territory, and California is entirely free from Mexican dominion. The Territory of California now belongs to the United States, and will be governed as soon as circumstances may permit, by officers and laws, similar to those by which the other Territories of the United States are regulated and protected. But until the Governor, the Secretary and Council are appointed, and the various civil departments of the Government are arranged, military law will p...

We would suggest the propriety of electing an Alcalde in Napper valley and one in the neighborhood of Dutton's; as there has not been one at either place before, they are not authorized by the proclamation, but Capt. Mervine is of opinion that such election will be sanctioned by the Governor General, it being his object to have enough for the administration of justice. Captains Ford and Swift, of the California Battalion of Volunteers, and Lieut. Maddox, of the U. S. Marine Corps, arrived in town on Wednesday evening, bringing despatches from the forces below. They were despatched with a portion of the 2nd and 3d companies to follow the movements of the troops disbanded by Castro on his departure for Mexico. Our paper is so much filled with important documents that we have only room to say, that the sloops of war Warren and Ciane, sailed from San Pedro, about the 25th ult., it is said, with sealed orders. The Congress, with Commodore Stockton is expected here in 10 or 12 days. Lieut...
