TO THE PUBLIC. A very erronius impression has gone out in relation to the terms upon which lots can be obtained in the city of FRANCISCA,That is, that person would be obligated to build a particular kind of house upon each lot before getting a title. The object of the proprietors, is to have the place settled, and have therefore determined to place the lots at the lowest possible rates to actual settlers, and the conditions that they build such house as they may think proper, provided it be sufficient for a family to live in, or for a work shop. They are unwilling to see the lots covered with little useless shanties, barely to hold a title, nor are they disposed to dictate to any person how large his house shall be, or of what material. One of the proprietors will always be in the City, and will afford every facility to persons wishing to improve. R. SEMPLE, One of the Proprietors.

THE CASCADE MOUNTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 20 February 1847

THE CASCADE MOUNTAINS. A NIGHT ON MOUNT HOOD. "A chosen band in a mountain land, And a life in the woods for me." It was a delightful day in August, we had made our noonday halt at a brooklet that babbled away at a very pleasant rate, between two ridges of the mountains, and in an hour's ride therefrom we entered the dense and extensive forests that fill the ravines and cover the heights of the Cascade Mountains, with the exception of the snow peaks, even to the valley of the Clackamas. We had been travelling over monotonous prairie land—through wild, wide, sandy wastes, with their prolific growth of the sombrelooking Artemesia, with nothing to relieve the eye, or dissipate that sense of sickening sameness that day after day weighed upon our spirits. How gladly then did we hail the change, and gallop into the bosom of the majestic woods! The breath of the forest was laden with the scent of agreeable odors. What a feeling of freshness was diffused into our whole being, as we enjoyed ...

LAST DAYS OF THE CJaunital. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 20 February 1847

LAST DAYS OF THE CARNIVAL. Don Raphel Gonzales has contributed much to the entertainment of the community by the sacred drama he got up. The parts were well sustained and reflected great credit on the actors. The saloon was well lighted, the beauty and worth of Monterey were there. We observed among the officers Commodore Shubrick and Capt. Lavalette. All came away highly gratified. The ball at the house of Señor Armaestes was a brilliant affair — the rooms were thronged—the ladies were in fine spirits—the music was excellent--and the tables were furnished with every delicacy which the market affords. All were happy — Fond eyes looked love to eyes that spake again, And all went merry as a marriage bell. BALL at THOMAS O. LARKINS, ESQ. It has seldom been our lot to attend a more pleasant entertainment than the Ball given by T. O Larkin, Esq., on Tuesday night last. The rooms were very much crowded but each individual seemed to think it his duty to do all he could for the comfort and ...

From the Oregon Spectator. ¶ THE EMIGRANTS—SOUTHERN ROUTE.—We have no further information to give concerning the emigrants on the Southern route, excepting that which is contained in the following letter, received a few days since: ¶ Settlement of the Rickreall, ¶ November 30, 1846 ¶ Editor of the Spectator:—I have just arrived in the settlements of this valley from the Kenyon in the Umpqua mountains. I left the people suffering beyond anything you have ever known. They must perish with hunger unless the people of the settlements go to their relief with pack horses and bring them in. They will have property with which to pay for such services. If they are not bro't away they must perish. Before I left, they had already commenced eating the cattle that had died in the Kenyon. At least one hundred head of pack horses should be taken out immediately. I implore the people of this valley, in the name of humanity, and in behalf of my starving and perishing fellow travellers to hasten to t...

JOURNAL OF THOMAS O. LARKIN, ESQ., late U. S. Consul, while prisoner to the Californians, from the 15th Nov. 1847, till his release at the taking of the Pueblo de los Angeles: On the 15th of November last, from information received of the sickness of my family in San Francisco, where they had gone to escape the expected revolutionary troubles in Monterey, and from letters from Captain Montgomery requesting my presence respecting some stores for the Portsmouth; I, with one servant left Monterey for San Francisco, knowing that for one month no Californian forces had been within 100 miles of us. That night I put up at the house of Don Joaquin Gomez, sending my servant to San Juan, 6 miles beyond, to request Mr. J. Thompson to wait for me as he was on the road for San Francisco. About midnight I was aroused from my bed by the noise made by 10 Californians, (unshaved and unwashed for months, being in the mountains,) rushing into my chamber with guns, swords, pistols and torches in their ...

The U. S. Frigate, Savannah, Capt. Mervine, has arrived off the harbor, Gen Kearney passenger. A Courier just arrived from San Diego, only one letter for us, from which we infer, that Comodore Stockton will not sail until the courier returns to San Diego. We have been using every effort to get the law authorizing the sale of town lots, but have not been able to do so, nor can the present or former authorities here, give us even an indefinite idea what the law is, nor are they certain that such a law ever existed. It has been the custom. Custom is very good in the absence of law; but the people of the U. States have been so much in the habit of enquiring what the law is, that they are not satisfied to act upon the ipse dixit of one man, although he may say that he "is the Law." Will any one give us light? LAST meeting of the Y. M. of L. H. Club. His Hon. Don Srtpzymlcq, in the chair. Next meeting at the odhl rnahsden. DSCJXO WVJP HCTOQ, President.

DESTRUCTIVE STROM ON THE COAST OF FLORIDA, U. S. WRECK OF THE PERSY, WISH COME FLOAT PASSENGERS GREAT LOSE OF LIFE [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 27 February 1847

DESTRUCTIVE STORM ON THE COAST OF FLORIDA, U. S. WRECK OF THE PERRY, WITH COM. SLOAT PASSENGER. GREAT LOSS OF LIFE. The New York Weekly HeraId has one page filled with accounts of the terrible gale which occurred on the Coast of Florida, on the 11th October 1846. Our paper is too small to publish the particulars. Capt. Dutton of the Engineer Corps gives the most detailed account, from which we condense the following facts. He says: "The town of Key West is now a heap of ruins. Of about 400 houses, large and small, there is not more than 10 or 12 left standing, or in a habitable condition, and those much shattered, whilst the general confusion and distress can hardly be realized. * * At this time commenced a scene which defies description. The houses in town (stone as well as wood) were torn piece-meal and scattered away like chaff before the wind. * * * In brief terms, I have to report the total destruction of all the works thus far erected for the construction of the fort. The whar...
