(Extracts from the President's Message.) [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 29 April 1847
( Extracts from the President's Message.) Fellow citizens of the Senate and of the House of Representatives: In resuming your labors in the service of the people, it is a subject of congratulation that there has been no period in our past history, when aII the elements of national prosperity have been so fully developed. Since your last session no afflicting dispensation has visited our country; general good health has prevailed ; abundance has crowned the toil of the husbandman ; and labor in all its branches is receiving an ample reward, while education, science, and the arts are rapidly enlarging the means of social happiness. The progress of our country in her career of greatness, not only in the vast extension of our territorial limits and the rapid increase of our population, but in resources and wealth, and in the happy condition of our people, is without example in the history of nations. Thus was the extraordinary spectacle presented to the civilized world, of a government,...

IRELAND.— The state of lreland continues to be most distressing; alarming in the extreme. The famine spreads; disease, the attendant of scarcity, stalks abroad through all parts of the island, and the suffering peasantry, goaded on by despair, have shown symptoms of rebellion and outrage, hoping thereby to attain an effetual relief for all their wants and privations. SPAIN.— Madrid Oct. 8.—The British ambassador, after having remonstrated without effect; has protested formally against the marriage, and has, it is said, particularly declared that Great Britain will never permit any child of the Duc de Montpensier to ascend the throne of Spain. The ambassador bases this protest, first, on the treaty of Utrecht, which provides in the most express and most unmistakeable terms, that no Prince of the House of Orleans shall succeed to the Spanish throne, and next, on the fact, that the marriage will increase the importance of France, and thereby cause a derangement of the balance of power....

Extracts from the report of the Secretary of War. On approaching Monterey, our army saw before them a city strong in natural defences, and made much more so by works of art, with a citadel protecting it on one side, and fortified heights on another; the avenues to it guarded; by fortresses well armed and fuliy manned, and every house a stronghold. Thus strong in positon, with more than forty pieces of artillery skilfully placed for destructive resistance, well might its defenders exult in their fancied security, and defy their assailants. Here the valor, skill, and heroism which had recently shone so conspicuous on the well-fought, and victorious fields of Palo Alto and Resaca de la Palma were to be put to another and a severer trial. The attack was commenced on the 21st, and continued through the two successive days. The enemy was assailed in his fortified. positions, *!n.s batteuie's captured,, his fortiessesf one afteMfli'othe/, earned ; ami at. length, ii; posMj.-.-td of in*jlfo...

We copy this week all that portion of the Report of the Secretary of w;ir relating to California. The rir&gt;t hostile' movements were so irregular, that we entertained serious, apprehensions that there would be sonic trouble in making' an amicable settlement of ail'airs. But the government! seerws disposed to take the " responsibility." 000 The volunteers of the California Battalion, are now on their way to their respective homes, most of them have been discharged. There is no arrangement made, that we know of, for their pay, but we have no doubt but that Col. Fremont will at least draw bills on the United States, to settle the claims of those who have so faithfully served through a winter campaign. What authority he ha-i, we know not, but we are sati-fied that he will do what he can lo make an amicable arrangement* Col. Fremont has done so much in the conquest of California, that he must either rise to higher distinction or sink entirely, as his acts mtfy ha approved or di...
