Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 3 April 1847
Sir, -- Being necessary to make public my instructions that I have received privately, from the civil government of Upper California, to start the colonization of the frontiers of Sonoma, should they be deemed worthy by you, of insertion in your estimable columns, -- said instructions, the original, I have the honor to hand you herewith, by their contents, and for other causes that I shall make public in due time, you will be persuaded as also the public at large, that I could not until now, that the circumstances urge it, make public these documents; and if l do so now, it is because of the situation in which some persons, residents in that part of the territory, are placed.

VERY PRIVATE. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 3 April 1847
VERY PRIVATE. The topographioal situation of the frontier on the northern side of the bay of San Francisco and Sacramento rivers, may be somewhat difficult to colonize, but this government trusts that for the honor of the National government, and your own proper interests in the social order that you will not let escape an opportunity to deserve the premium to which all men aspire: — Posthumous Fame. Ultimately this territorial government knows and is persuaded of all that you have informed it respecting the danger to which this frontier is exposed on account of our neighbours of the north, and it recommends that the Mexican population be always greater than that of the foreign, who in virtue of the colonization should solicit lands in that precious portion of the territory trusted to you by the government, for which it again charges you only to give titles to those who may prove they merit them, bearing in mind the importance of the port of Bodega, and Cape Mendocina, which points ...

MEXICAN AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 3 April 1847
MEXICAN AFFAIRS. The Federal Constitution of 1824, was revived in Mexico, December 1846, under Santa Anna, who destroyed it in 1829. Gomez Farias, was then, as he is now (again) the Vice President. Santa Anna wished to obtain a Dictator's power; to do which he proposed to Farias, to relieve him in the duties of his office, while he visited his Estates, and to hurry through Congress the Bill for seizing the property of the Church, which took place. But no sooner had Congress decreed it and Farias signed, than Santa Anna at the head of the Army, sustained by the Church, put down Congress, the Constitution, and all, and instituted that Central system which has ruined Mexico. How short his memory must be, if he believes himself, what he has declared in his proclamations of 1846, now that we find him lauding that same Constitution of 1824, as revived, and under which he and Farias, hold the same stations as when it was destroyed; and "Farias" outlawed by the government, which Santa Anna ...
GENERAL MARIADO DE VALLEJO [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 3 April 1847
GENERAL MARIANO G. VALLEJO. In common with all classes of our fellow citizens, we have had the pleasure of welcoming the arrival in the Capital, the distinguished citizen named at the head of this article. We cannot forbear a passing notice of this gentleman. There is no man to whom California is more indebted, and of whom she should be more proud. A Californian by birth; his father a Spanish Officer, he entered early in life, the Military service, and from his youth has been devoted to the best interests of California, having been placed in many distinguished positions. He first conceived the idea of colonizing the North side of the Bay of San Francisco, where he commenced operations some fifteen years since, after the Missions had been sacked by the wild Indians and Priests driven out, and inspite of the clamors of his friends, who believed he would fall a sacrifice to the Indian hostility. The results obtained there by himself, and those whom he could collect around him, have pro...
