Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 16 January 1847
HORRIBLE ADVENTURE. -- Capt. George W. Taylor, inventor of the submarine armor, with which he explores the bottoms of rivers, relates the following story: -- He was just returned to New York from the Chesapeake Bay, where he had been raising the iron from the brig Canton, bound from Havre-de-Grace to Boston, which was sunk in sixty feet water, about the first of September, 1845, and three of the hands lost. When they arrived there, the captain went down first himself, and after clearing the quarter deck, by cutting away the boom, lanyards, &amp;c., sent down one of his men, who was a very expert diver. He, after doing what the captain had ordered him, began to look round for plunder. He first went into the cabin, in hopes of finding the captain's watch, but coming up said to Captain Taylor that the captain had been '"too sharp for him'' and had taken it away. He then crawled through from the cabin into the steerage, for the purpose of picking up some of the sailors' dunnage....

SIR ROBERT Peel [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 23 January 1847
SIR ROBERT PEEL. The New York Gazette has a graphic correspondent, who is writing a series of "Gallery Sketches of Public Characters," by an American in England. From one of his numbers we extract the following sketch of the Premier of Great Britain, Sir Robert Peel. "This distinguished statesmen is in person rather above the common size, though not what might be termed, a large man—his complexion is light, and his hair what is called "sandy," his cheeks full, which diminish the size of his mouth and eyes. At first glance a stranger would not pronounce him a man of intellect or genius —but it is only necessary to attend one debate in the House of Commons, on which the Premier takes a part, to be convinced that he is not only a man of extraordinary powers, but far superior to any other member on that floor— in fact, although I have been present on many occasions, and sat for hours at a time, in listening to every variety of debate there, I never witnessed an instance where the most p...

Arrival or the U. S Ship Independence. -- This noble ship, bearing the broad pennant of Commodore Shubrick, came to anchor in our harbor on Friday evening last. She sailed from Boston on the 29th of Aug., arrived at Rio de Janeiro in 53 days, remained there 9 days, arrived at Valparaiso in 34 days, remained there 7 days, and arrived here in 40 days. This is splendid sailing, but the Independence is one of the fastest ships in our service as well as the most powerful. We welcome her to our waters, and recognize among her officers some of the choice spirits of the navy. Commodore Shubrick, in virtue of his rank, takes command of all the Naval and Land forces here. The following is a list of the officers attached to the lndependence; William B. Shubrick, Commodore. E. A. F. Lavalette, Captain. Lieutenants, Richard L. Page, Frederick Chatard, Chas.

For the Californian. JUST CONDUCT OF RANDOLPH, EARL OF MORAY.—In consequence of the act of settlement, 1318, Randolph, in 1329, assumed the character of regent. Indefatigable in discharging the duties of his station, he secured the public tranquility by wise ordinances, and distributed speedy and severe justice. One example of the fortitude of his administration is too singular to be passed ever in silence. A certain man having slain a priest, went to the papal court, obtained absolution and boldly returned to Scotland. Randolph ordered him to be tried, and on conviction to be executed. Because, although the Pope may grant absolution, as to the spiritual consequences of Sin, he cannot screen offenders from civil punishment." A RICH FREIGHT—The Western Railroad freight train brought in last evening, among other varieties, about twenty tons of silver and copper ore, from the Pittsburg and Copper Harbor mines, on Lake Superior. Its value was estimated in a Buffalo paper to be three hun...

NEWS FROM THE SEAT OF WAIL [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 28 January 1847
NEWS FROM THE SEAT OF WAR. We have received by special messenger the result of the engagement near the Pueblo de los Angelos, between the American Forces under command of Commodore Stockton and the Californians, commanded by General Flores. We consider the war in California at an end. It will be the the first effort of Commodore Shubrick, now Commander-in-Chief, to establish a civil government, a duty for which he is eminently qualified. Commodore Stockton has performed a brilliant achievement in his march from San Diego to the Pueblo de los Angelos, and in his signal success over a resolute enemy. The following is his GENERAL ORDER: The Commander-in-Chief congratulates the Officers and Men of the Southern Division of the U. S. Forces in California, on the brilliant victories obtained by them over the enemy on the 8th and 9th inst., and on once more taking possession of the "Ciudad de los Angelos." He takes the earliest moment to commend their gallantry and good conduct both in the ...
ANOTHER LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 28 January 1847
ANOTHER LETTER. The following is taken from the letter of an American, who was captured near here, by the Californians and detained as a hostage. CITY OF THE ANGELS, January 17th, 1847. Two days back Col. Fremont and Don Andres, entered into treaty, which put an end to the war. Three days back, the Mexican Officers quit the camp, and Don Andres Pico is now in command. Flores, Garsias, M. Castro, Juan and Tomas Soborandes, with 10 to 20 others had started for Sonora, in Mexico. Should they hear of the treaty they may return. The Californians appeared completely tired of the affair. It is now impossible to say who or how many they have lost. The American forces here now, are over One Thousand ! While I was in confinement, the native troops used to desert every night; some were re-caught, and again went off. Under Flores there was continued robbing, and a murder every two or three days. The Malek Adel has arrived at San Diego from Mazatlan. Tellas is second in command at Mazatlan with ...
