CALIFORNIA.—No. 6. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 20 March 1847
CALIFORNIA -- No. 5. It is with much diffidence, that we re commence the publication of the series of numbers, headed "California," from the almost insurmountable difficulty of obtaining corect information upon any subject, and especially as to the conduct of the individuals who were the principal movers of the military operations in this country. Col. Fremont in command of about one hundred and seventy men, after the retreat of Capt. Joaquin de la Torre, returned by way of Sonoma to the American Fork for the purpose of crossing the Sacramento with his horses and baggage, and to march at once to Santa Clara, where it was understood Gen. Castro had his head quarters. R. Semple was ordered to cross the Bay to the town of Yerba Buena, with a party of only ten men, and if practicable make prisoner of the Captain of the Port Mr. R. T. Ridley and then to proceed by water to New Helvetia, which service was done, and he joined the camp on the American Fork on the 8th of July. On the evening...

California Law. — A man came into the Alcalde's office the other day, bringing with him a paper from another Alcalde stating that the bearer had been convicted of horse stealing, and wished to have a new hearing before the Chief Magistrate. We take pleasure in refering our readers to the advertisement of Mr. Crane. An Eating House is certainly very acceptable in Monterey at this time. During the present week, our town has presented quite a business appearance. Four of the vessels in port have been preparing for sea. The lndependence and Lexington for the Bay of San Francisco, the Erie for the Sandwich Islands, and the Savannah for New York. The Savannah has been so long with us, that her officers have become acquainted with the citizens, and it is with the kind of feeling which we should entertain for the departure of a brother, that we see them leave the coast. Capt. Mervine was here when the Flag of the Union was first hoisted on the pacific. He has been in active service since th...
A PROCLAMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 20 March 1847
A PROCLAMATION. By the General commanding the Army of the United States of America, ¶ To the people of Mexico.—After many years of patient endurance, the United States are at length constrained to acknowledge, that a war now exists between our Government and the Government of Mexico. For many years our citizens have been subjected to repeated insults and injuries, our vessels and cargoes have been seized and confiscated, our Merchants have been plundered, maimed, imprisoned, without cause, and without reparation. At length your Government acknowledged the justice of our claims, and agreed by treaty to make satisfaction, by payment of several million dollars; but this treaty has been violated by your rulers, and the stipulated payments have been withheld. Our late effort to terminate all difficulties by peaceful negociation, has been rejected by the dictator Paredes, and our Minister of peace, whom your rulers had agreed to receive, has been refused a hearing. He has been treated wit...

The Mortgage on California. --The state of the Mexican finances, and the report that there is a mortgage on California held by subjects of Great Britain, have recently engaged public attention, and in our present relations with Mexico are subjects of some importance to us. We have given to them a very careful examination, and from authtentic statements and documents in our possession we feel justified in saying, that there is no mortgage on California, or any other of the provinces of Mexico, as has been represented to exist; and that the British Government is not a party, in any respect, to any of the public loans that have been made by Mexico. There is nothing more than an agreement between the government and her creditors, to sell lands located in certain places at a specified price; and that they shall not be sold to others than the holders of these bonds. Among the lands so set apart were some in Texas, which having ceased to be a part of Mexico, are no longer liable to the pro...

It is with feelings of the most lively gratification, that we are enabled to lay before our readers the information, of the saving of nearly all of that unfortunate party of emigrants who were stopped by the snow on the California mountains, and of whom we recorded on the 13th ultimo, that nine had died of starvation out of a parly of sixteen, who attempted to get through the snow to the settlements. Before the arrival of that sad news the Citizens, U. S. Officers and seamen at San Francisco, subscribed over $1500 to raise supplies for their relief, the citizens of Sonoma and Nappa also contributed over $400. Captain J. B. Hull Commanding the Northern District sent Passed Mid'n. S. E. Woodworlh U. S. N. in command of the party who were to carry over the supplies of provisions and clothing.

Fort Sacramento, March 5, 1847. Sir -- Last night Mr. Aquila Glover, one of the noble men that went to the assistance of the suffering emigrants on the California Mountains, arrived at this post with a letter from Mr. Woodworth, U.

Sutter's consent to forward to you by couriers attached to this garrison, the information we have received, which must be interesting to every American. I send via Sonoma, as Capt. Sutter will detain his Launch here until Mr. Woodworth returns from the Mountains, as we will have no communication by water from Yerba Buena until that time.
