LETTER OF CAPT. MERVINE. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 6 February 1847

LETTER OF CAPT. MERVINE. The commanding officer of the U. S. Forces in this Department, would do injustice to his feelings, were he to withhold an expression of the high sense entertained of the gallantry and good conduct of the forces employed in the late expedition against the Insurgents, which they have so effectually and expeditiously brought to a close. It is a novel instance in the history of California, that her unrivalled Cavalry were obliged to surrender and lay down their arms, in consequence of being so effectually entrapped as to deprive them of their usual alternative, and render escape impossible. To the patriotic citizen Volunteers of Yerba Buena, under command of Captain W. M. Smith, his thanks are especially due for their efficient co-operation on this occasion; and tender of services, regardless of sacrifices they were about to sustain in responding to the call of their country. U, S. Frigate Savannah, Bay of San Francisco, Jan. 12, 1847. WM. MERVINE. YERBA BUENA, ...

THE LEXINGTON.—We had space in our last only to mention the arrival of the U S. Ship Lexington in command of Lieutenant Bailey. Capt. Tompkins with his company and field train of artillery came out in her. He has since taken up his post at Fort Mervine, and given to the fortification quite a military aspect. His company is composed of hale resolute men. Lieut. Henry W. Hallock of the U. S. Engineer corps has also come out in the Lexington. He is entrusted with the erection of permanent fortifications at the most important points on the sea board. He is well provided with shovels, spades, pick-axes, ploughs, and all the implements used in the construction of fortifications, and brings also with him a saw mill and grist mill. The Lexington, we understand, is laden with heavy battery guns, 24 pounders, mortars, shot, shells, muskets, pistols, swords, fixed ammunition, several hundred barrels of powder, &c. &c. Three other transports from New York are shortly exp...

LOSS OF THE U. S. SCHOONER SHARK [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 6 February 1847

LOSS OF THE U. S. SCHOONER SHARK. It is with the deepest regret we learn from a well authenticated source, that the U. S Schooner Shark has lately become totally wrecked at the mouth of the Columbia river. We have been favored with the privilege of making the following extract from a private letter received by an individual in this city, written by a person of veracity living at Vancouver. Extract of a Letter Dated, Vancouver Sept. 14, 1846. "This morning we heard from Mr. Pisk, who has arrived from Fort George, that the U. S. Schr. Shark is totally wrecked. She got on the south spit nearly two miles outside the cape. After cutting away the masts and doing all she could in vain, the boats were sent on shore with as many of the crew as they could carry; those on board hoisted a light and kept firing guns through the night. The light could barely be seen by our people on the cape, and if they had been on the water in a canoe, they could not have seen it at all, and there would have be...

GENERAL ORDER. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 6 February 1847

GENERAL ORDER. The Commander-in-Chief has great satisfaction in announcing to the inhabitants of Monterey, that from information received from various sources, he has every reason to believe that the disorders which have recently disturbed the Territory of California, are at an end, and that peace and security are restored, to this district certainly, and he hopes to the whole Territory. The improved state of affairs in the district and the arrival of a company of U. S. Artillery, under Capt. Tompkins, has enabled the Commander-in Chief to dispense with the services of the company of Mounted Volunteers, under Lieutenant Maddox of the Marine Corps. The patriotic settlers who composed this company, nobly stepped forward in time of danger, and stood between the Flag of the United States and the defenceless women and children of Monterey on the one hand, and the bands of lawless disturbers of the peace on the other. For such disinterested conduct, the Company of Mounted Volunteers under...
