I'niin Oregon. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 17 April 1847

From Oregon. The Hudson Bay Conpany's barque "Columbia," Capt Duncan, five days from the mouth of the Columbia, arrived in our harbor on Wednesday night. She brought with her only three newspapers, the "Oregon Spectator," for Feb. 4th, Feb. 18th, and March 4th. The only news of any interest contained in them, is in reference to the emigrants who took "Applegates Cut Off," and were in consequence of the difficulties of the route, reduced to a state bordering upon starvtion. The 'Spectator" of March 4th, contains three communications in reference to these emigrants: one from J. Quinn Thornton, one from the Rev. J. A. Cornwall, and the journal of Thomas Holt, who with a party of men went out for the relief of the emigrants. From them we learn that these unfortunate people lost nearly, if not quite. all their property, and those which finally were so fortunate as to reach the settlements, were in the most deplorable condition. -- Some of the families that were relieved by Mr. Hall and p...

[Corrcpoadrnce of Ik* Star.] As them seems to be mocb doubt existing in reference to the laws which are now in force, and in reference to the jurisdiction of the court*, a« now established, I will uke the liberty, through the medium of your columns, to oiler a few thoughts, upon thus* subjects; in doing which, however, I shall not attempt that extended discussion, which the importance of the subjects referred to would seem to demand, but shall content myself with the mere presentation, in the britf'ftt manner, of such facts and arguments as shall most naturally occur. If we consult the laws of nations, if we consult (mm precedent «, or ifwr consult reason and pro- ! priety, we shall find but littlo difficulty in deter* | mining that the laws of Mexico, a* formerly extended to this country, arc still in force, and that they must remain in force until this country is formally etdtd to lite United States.

' ■ St.i., [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 17 April 1847

For the California Star. Tuleries, April 12th, 1847. Number 14 of your excellent journal has just reached us. Number 13 did not come to hand. Here, away, alone as it were, it is with unusual interest that I peruse its contents; its name being most appropriate -- truly is it a STAR, whose rays become most cheering in this region of mental darkness; let us then hope that it will continue a fixed luminary, shedding its light abroad - "shining for all." You have, I perceive, given credit to a rumor, for you publish the massarce of some settlers on the San Joaquin river by the Indians. Probably you allude to tha settlement forming on the "Stanislaus," called New Hope; and who knows! but it may be my little party to which you have reference. At any rate, you may assure your readers that such is not the case; that the Indians, though indulging in their natural propensity to thieve on all occasions have made no attempt (and I am correctly informed,) to either kill the settlers, or destroy t...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 17 April 1847

The article and beverage by the name of porter, obtained its name about the year 1780, from the following circumstances, which not having yet been printed, we think them proper to be recorded in this work. Prior to the above nentioned period, the malt liquors in general use were ale. beer, and two -penny; and it was customary for the drinkers of malt liquor to call for a pint tankard of half and half, i e ha!f ale and half beer, or a half beer and half two-penny. In course of time, it also become the practice to call for a pint or tankard of three beads, meaning a third of ale, beer, and twopenny; and thus the publican had the trouble to go to three casks, and turn three cocks for a pint of liquor. To avoid this trouble and waste. a brewer of the name of Harwood, conceived the idea making a liquor which should partake of the united flavors of ale, beer, and two-penny.--He did so, calling it entire or entire buit. meaning that it was drawn entirely from one cask, or butt; and as it w...

From the N.Y. Tribune, Nov. 5. The Army in New Mexico. An extra from the oflice of the Liberty Tribune, dated on Tuesday last, contains a long and interesting letter from John T. Hughes, its correspondent at Santa Fe. It is dated on the 17th instant, and givrd a daily account of General Kearney's expedition to San Tonie. It contains about 100 inhabitants; but at this time about 3,000 persons from all the neighboring villages were assembled to celebrate the anniversary of the "Holy Virgin." On the arrival of the Genera! and his troops, they proceeded to make a dazzling; exhibition of their ceremonies, so as to impress them with an idea of the pompous character of the church. The General and staff took their quarters in the town, (the volunteers encamped in the suburbs. About 8 o' clock at night the town was brilliantly illuminated by the pine fagots that blazed from all the walls of the city, from the tops of the churches and tbe private houses. For four hours, there was a continual ...

San Antonio From a letter before us dated 28th of Sept. received from a correspondent at this place, we gather the following information: -- Gen. Wool had his head quarters in that city at the above date; Col. Harney had been for some time encamped at Milion de la Concepcion, with a few companies of tho Ist and 2d dragoons. The Arkansas Mounted Gunmen were at San Jose, and the Washington Artillery at the sources of the San Pedro, encamped between the two Illinois regiments of Infantry. Some companies of the U. S. regular Infantry occupy the Presido With regard to order in the city of San Antonio everything went on well, There is no g&amp;lt;s^^|b day, but by night, in room of police, a patrol of twenty men keep life and property in safety. — Much tranquility is observed there, and it is said that this slate of things is owing to the enlightened measures taken by Gen.

\l\ ;ir;t&amp;lt;to. We have seen a letter which states that the blockade of Vera Cruz cannot annoy the enemy much, while the port of Alvarado is open. This place is distant but a single day's journey from Vera Cruz, and scarcely twenty hours elapse without not only merchandise, but munitions of war being landed and carried over to the latter city. The arrival of Commodore Perry at San Antonio de Lizardo, is said to have occasioned a great sensation among the ships of the blockading squadron, taking them all by surprise, not the least intimation of his sailing having previously reached them. He came out with orders to report himself to Commodore Conner, as second in command, and is authorized to assume the direct tion of affairs, whenever the latter may feel inclined to return home. He will hoist the flag ( red ) on board the .Mississippi ( Capt. Fitzhugh ! having been detached on leave ) It wa3 hoped and believed that Commodore Perry's arrival would give the squadron something ...

Late from the United States. The U. S. sloop of War Preble, Capt. Shields arrived at this port on Monday afternoon. The Preble sailed from the United States aboat the midle of September last, at a convoy of the several store and transport vessels which have recently arrived here. She touched at Rio Janeiro, Valparaiso, and Callao, at which last named port she was met by Maj. Rich, U. S. Paymaster, and Mr J. Parker Norris, bearer of despatches to Gov. Kearny. Messrs. Rich and Norris left the United States about the 26th of January, and crossed at Panama. We have been able to obtain from the Preble but one newspaper later than we have before received, the New York Courier and Enquirer of Dec 12th. This contains the President's Annual Message, at the opening of the session of Congress, an abstract of which will be found below. The message is of great Iength, and chiefly occupied with Mexican affairs. We ksrn Terha!lr, (bit Coagrau Lad voted liberal supplier for e*rrjinf «■ tU war Tea n...
