Another Proposed Atlantic and Pacific Communication.

Slave Decision in Texas. A case has been decided in the District Court for the county, of Bexar, in Texas, which, if confirmed in the Supreme Court, will operate, it is said to declare several thousand of blacks free, who have been held heretofore as slaves. A slave woman was carried from the United states to Austin's Colony, in Texas, in 1826 Slavery was not recognized by the laws of Mexico at the time. The constitution of Coaliuila and Texas was proclaimed early in 1827, and the woman, the subject of suit, daughter of the original slave, was born on the Brazos about the middle of 1827. When,the constitution of 1836 was adopted by the Republic of Texas, slavery was established, and the mother slave was of the class enumerated in that constitution as slaves. The daughter having been born in the country, was not included by the provisions ot the constitution. ¶ In a suit, involving the question of the freedom of this girl, it has been decided that the condition of blacks in the count...

On Saturday Turner met Taylor, and asked him to pay for the damage he had done. In reply, Taylor told him .he would kill him the first chance he got. To-day Turner came upon "laylor, when the latter was unprepared, got the first shot and clipped him back of the head.

Another Murder. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 18 September 1852
Another Murder. Oa Monday afternoon Jianito Ramirez and! , Pablo Lopez, quarrelled about some trifling matter —a pistol or a horse, or perhaps both — ; i -when Juanito drew a pistol and shot Pablo in i i the abdomen, death ensuing in twenty-four i hours. The dying declaration of Lopez is that i he was in company with Ramirez, " talking friendly,and that he (Lopez) asked for a pistol, ! which said Ramirez refused to deliver up, ; claiming it as his property, and alledging that Lopez had retained a horse belonging to him, (Ramirez.) Lopez told him that he had once paid for the horse. Ramirez then got mad, and drew his pistol, and shot Lopez." This tragedy was enacted near the house of Lucina Ramirez, upon the opposite side of the river. A coroner's jury, summoned by Mr. Justice Mallard, returned a verdict of " wilful murder" against the said Ramirez. Search has been made for the murderer, but up to this time he has managed to keep out of the way.

Spiritual Ilnpplngs, [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 18 September 1852
Spiritual Rappings, The "circle" at the Mission San Gabriel was greatly encouraged one evening last week by the mysterious shaking of a table around which the seekers after science had assembled. The spirits were invoked to manifest themselves by a distinct rap, but the invocation produced no effect except a slight trembling of the table—"no great shakes," anyhow. Subsequent experiments induce the belief that spirits have "gin out." ¶ —— ¶ Married.—At the residence of Capt. Robert Taylor, Willow Grove, San Gabriel township, 16th inst., John Roland,.
