From the N Y. Mirror. THE mi.htm(. TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 1 May 1847

From the N Y. Mirror. THE LIGHTNING TELEGRAPH. "Put a girdle round the earth in forty minutes." ¶ Shakespeare. ¶ Thus boasted the swift winged Puck to his lord and master, the princely Oberan. It is quite probable that the immortal Shakspeare thought he was "laying it on an inch thick," when he put this sentiment into his mouth. But the experience of later times has convinced the admirers of the great bard, that "there are more things in heaven and earth than were dreamed of in his philosophy." To us of this day, the activity of the fairies courier is but frozen laziness, and his light footed feats no great shakes." What are all the imaginings of the poet to the realities of this day ? This age of jugged thunder and bottled lightning. This era, when galvanism makes our door plates, electricity talks for ii*. and the sun takts prou!«a- Now, when the quiet tea kettle, flinging lazily on the bob May be mada to perform the labors of a Hercules, or develop* the energies of a new Promethe...

Oar Paper. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 1 May 1847

Our Paper. "Westward the Star of Empire takes its way." It has now become generally known to the people of California, that our star is a "fixed" one. and design to permanency. Hitherto, its pub lication has been attended with some loss to the publisher, end we have had to surmount numerous obstacles cast in our way. When we engaged this enterprise. and appeared before the public, a more than limited circulation was unlooked for; we did not expect te reap a harvest for ourselves, in a pecuniary point of view, but launched our bark upon the wave of public opinion, trusting entirely to that, and to our own exertions for a reward in future. Now we have no reason to regret the undertaking. Our fast filling "list of subscription," and the increasing popularity of our paper, "the Star," which bids fair to become soon as wide!y circulated as its sister plans of the East, promise us success, and the kind assistance of many friends, lead us to the belief that the best wishes of our countryme...

[From the Wanhingt'- Call for Troopo. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 1 May 1847

[From the Washington Union, Nov.18.] Call for Troops. We understand that requisitions have been sent out from the War Department, calling into service of the United States nine additional regiments of volunteers to serve daring the war with Mexico, unless sooner discharged. They are asked for from the following States: -- One regiment of infantry from Massachusetts; One regiment of infantry from the State of New York; One regiment of infantry front Pennsylvania ; One regiment of infantry from Virginia ; One regiment of infantry from North Carolina; One regiment of infantry from South Carolina, One regiment of infantry from Louisiana ; One regiment of infantry from Mississippi ; -- and one regiment of mounted men from Texas. This important movement will show the federal piess whether there is any faltering on the part of the administration, as they have been recently most recklessly charging.
