From Utah. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 28 August 1852
From Utah. Gen. Rich and a party of eighteen, principally .Mormons, arrived at San Bernardino on Saturday last, in twenty-two days from Great Salt Lake City This is a remarkable quick trip, especially when it is considered that they came through with wagons. We learn frojn one of ttfe party that business at Salt Lake City was brisk. The California emigration had left a good deal of money with the Mormons, in exchange for supplies; the crops had been abundant, and trade was brisk. It was expected the population of Utah would be increased l&gt;y an emigration of about 15,000 from England and from different parts of the United States. Two companies were preparing to emigrate to San Bernardino.— One company, consisting of from twenty-five to fifty families,,would come through this fall.— The other company, xnuch larger, will start early next spring.

Eifcbolleo.l Murder. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 28 August 1852
Eifcbolleo.l Murder. This land has been the scene of many tragedies, but none partaking more of the character of the fiend-like than that perpetrated at the Mission Viejo, recently. We gather the following account from the Coroner's inquest.— On the night of the 7th August, Aoastasio Albitre and his wife attended a fandango at the Old Mission, leaving in their house their daughter Maria Antonio, old, in charge of Mariana Pico. When they went to the ball the child was asleep, but the next morning, yrhen the father returned, it was missing. Search immediately made and continued for seven days, when the body was found in a pond of water, with its throat cut.— The bushes were so thick around the pond as to be almost impenetrable, and search was directed thither from seeing the prints of horses' feet on the outside, and blood apon the bushes. It appears that the woman left in charge of the child, also attended the ball for a short time, and it is supposed, that during her absence the chi...

From Sob Diego. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 28 August 1852
From San Diego. At the recent term of the County Court at San Diego, James Robinson, otherwise called ''Yankee Jim," was tried for burglary, and sentenced to be bung. Two accomplices. Gray and Harris, were each sentenced to be imprisoned one year in the State Prison. The charge upon which they were tried was for stealing a boat, but they are strongly suspected of horse-stealing and even murder. Yankee Jim made powerful resistance to the arrest, and was finally captured by the aid of the "lasso," which in the hands of a person expert in its use is irresistable. His execution is fixed for the 18th of September, and he says that before that he will make a confession that will astonish the natives.

Scandal. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 28 August 1852
Scandal. 2he London papers contain a highly seasoned dish of scandal, in the trial of a libelsuit brought by the notorious Dr. Archilli against the no less celebrated Dr. Newman.— The former is an apostate from Roman Catholicism, and the latter from Protestantism. Achilli was charged with many acts of seduction and debauchery, time and place being sworn to by his alleged victims; he on the other hand making oath thai he never saw the women in his life! A remarkable feature in the case was the introduction in the evidence of copies of proceedings against Achilli before the Inquisition, it being the first time since the Reformution that the records of that tribunal had been introduced into .English courts of law. The pleadings ou both sides were noticeable for ability, and after three days of intense interest on the part of the publio, the Jury brought in a verdict of guilty.
