A more shoking scene cannot be imagined than that witnessed by the party of men who went to the relief of the unfortunate emigrants in the California Mountains. The bones of those who had died arnd been devoured by the miserable ones that still survived, were lying around their tents and cabins. Bodies of men, women, and children, with half the flesh torn from them lay on every side. A woman sat by the side of the body of her husband who had just died, cutting out his tongue; the heart she had already tikea eat, trilled, and cat 1 The daughter tva« asea eating the flsA cf tbe faihcr— the raolbrr , tbil cf her children — child.-en that cf fi.lli'T and ■ noittr.

ilo»tilc Indian*. ' [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 10 April 1847

Hostile Indians. Persons who have recently come in from the San Joaquin, bring information that the Indians in that section are becoming every day more troublesome. They have stolen a number of horres and cattle, and it is believed that they will venture to attack the settlements. A portion of the troops in the employment of the government should be stationed on the frontiers to protect the settlers. From all accounts, some of the settlements must be broken up unless adequate protection is afforded them by the Government. there is now a large number of troops stationed along the coast, a few of whom might be spared for frontier service. One company stationed on the San Joaquin, would afford protection to a large district of country. We noticed in a former number of our paper, the departure of a company of men under Capt. Kern from Fort Sacramento, to operate against the hostile Indians in the upper Sacramento Valley, who had for several months previous been committing depredations u...

For the California Star. ----- March28th, 1847 Mr. Editor -- We have supposed from your prospectus that your paper was to be devoted to the interests of the people of California, and that portion of us who live in this part of the country have been waiting some time to see what you will say on a subject of great importamce to us, and as we conceive to every man in California who has a horse, or ever intends to have one. You will readily perceive that I allude to the horsethief Indians. that great and particular scourge and curse of the whole country from Sonoma to San Diego. Now that the war with the Mexicans is ended as far as we are immediately concerned,it is to be hope the attention of the authorities of the country will be directed to this great and increasing evil. During the Spanish regime, such a thing as a horse thief was unknown in the country, but as soon as Mexicans took possession, their characterestic anarchy began to prevail, and the Indians to desert the Missions -- ...

THE VALLEY OF THE JOAQUIN. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 17 April 1847

THE VALLEY OF THE SAN JOAQUIN. It appears to me, Mr. Editor, that a corner of your small but valuable journal might be usefully devoted to a brief description of this noble valley, the first undoubtedly in California, and one of the most magnificent in the world. It is about five hundred miles long, with an average width of about fifty miles. It is bounded on the east by the great Snowy Mountains, and on the west by the low range, which in many places dwindles into insignificant hills, and has its northern terminus at the Strait of Carquines, on the Bay of San Francisco, and its southern near the Colorado River. The river of San Joaquin flows through the middle of the Valley for about half of its extent, and thence diverges toward the eastern mountain. in which it has its source. About sixty miles further south, is the northern end of the Buenavista Lake, which is about one hundred miles long, end from ten to twenty wide. Still further south, and near the western side of the Valley,...
