(ukpomtki) FOR TH caLifok^jasJ U.S. TERRITORY OF CALIFORNIA [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 24 April 1847
(REPORTED FOR THE CALIFORNIAN.) U.S. TERRITORY OF CALIFORNIA United States Court of Admiralty for the Territory. His Honor Walter Colton, Judge in Admiralty presiding.—First opening of this Court; Monterey. March 29th 1847.— United States and the Captors vs English Schooner William, her Hull, Cargo, Tackle and Appurtenances. (Concluded.) Her sailing captain is himself a native of Mexico and a citizen of that Republic. Her crew were shipped in Mexico. Her cargo is thoroughly Mexican and her invoice is in the language of that country. It is true these are not circumstances which, taken by themselves, necessarily invest her with a hostile character, but they tend to impeach her neutrality and when combined with other facts, carry strong presumptive evidence that she is not entitled to the immunities of the neutral flag which she bears. Some emphasis has been laid by the claimants on the fact that one of the three partners of the house to which the William and her cargo belong has retur...
For the Caiifornian. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 24 April 1847
For the Californian. Mr. Editor. -- l have recently returned from a tour of several weeks, to the North. I know not how others may feel, but it is a delightful scene, to stand on the borders of the great Bay of San Francisco and see the numerous light craft already employed in carrying the produce of the country to market. lt is a pleasing thought to look forward but a few years, when an industrious population will fill up the almost interminable and fertile valleys which open on the Bay. The large, well cultivated farms, the numerous vehicles loaded with the almost spontaneous products of the soil, wending their way to the several points of shipment on the Bay. The beautiful towns and villages growing up at every prominent point and the Bay itself whitened with the canvass of every description of vessels from the light pleasure boat, to the Line-of-battle ship. There can now be but little doubt that the Bay of San Francisco is destined to become the great market place for the coast...

After this week our day of publication will be changed from Saturday to Thursday morning, so as to suit the departure of the Mails, as it leaves here, in both directions on Thursday morning. . The New Mail arrangement has just gone into effect. The first arrival brought quite a number of letters and papers; we have long felt the want of such an arrangement, and though the arrangements are at present far from being perfect, it will afford a very great accomodation to the . citizens of California. The Quarter Masters at the several military posts are the Post Masters, and we suppose that at the several important points, there is no military post, the Alcaldes will forward or deliver letters left in their charge. Our readers will remember that this arrangement is made for military purposes, and there being no other mail in the country, the Governor has ordered that the citizens be accommodated, by having their letters and papers sent free of expense. Some of our acquaintances have been...

We copy some very interesting items of foreign news from the Baltimore Sun, of the 10th of November, we have some dates to the 12th of January, but there is not much news of importance. America and the Californians. — Notwithstanding the interest felt in the Montpensier manage question, the journals have found time to say a good deal about the seizure or annexation, or whatever it may be called, of California. The great Government organ, the Debaits, makes this brief, but expressive observation on the matter. "By the acquisition of California the United States gain a territory which descends from the forty-second to twenty-third degree, and which, in a straight line, is 2500 kilometres in length. It is simply a complete revolution effected in the balance of power on the Pacific Ocean. For France it is a question of no interest; for Great Biitain it is an affair of the first importance. And yet the statesmen and newspapers of England neglect this great matter to devote their thoughts...

We have received the President's Message by the bearer of despatches, Mr. Norris, who crossed the lsthmus and took an English Steamer to Calao, where he feII in with U. S. Sloop of War Preble, and took passage in her via San Francisco to this place. He brings news from Washington to the 15th of January, and from the seat of war in Mexico to the 10th of December last. The Message is a plain well written Document. The greater portion is taken up, in showing the causes which produced the war between Mexico and the United States, a few extracts on that subject, will be satisfactory to our readers. It shows plainly that some persons in the Union think most of the success of their party than of the honor of the nation, and have published at home and abroad that the war, though commenced by Mexico, was unjustly provoked by the United States, The President, by a plain statement of facts, has given a quietus to such patriots. There is but little said in relation to California, and much of th...
