Untitled [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 22 May 1847

[We publish below an interesting communication, together with a journal written by one of the late emigration, detained by the snows on the Sierra Nevada. Owing to its length, we have omitted several paragraphs of minor importance, nothing of a tendency to affect its interest, however. For these and other documents we are indebted to Mr. Geo McKinstry Jr.] [Publishers of Cal. Star.] NEW HELVETIA, April 29, 1847 Gent.— As the last member of the unfortunate emigrating company has arrived from the California Mountains, I hare thought proper to send to you for publication in your valuable paper the 'Star,' the name of every member of the company, those that have arrived in the valley, and those that died from fatigue and starvation. I also enclose a copy of a journal kept by one of the sufferers (now at this fort) during the pact winter in that horrid mountain camp; the gentleman that kept the journal also furnished me with the list of names, and has taken great pains to make it correct...

California Emigrants. - The disastrous calamity which befel the late emigration, the mortality and the dire sufferings of the miserable survivors, who have passed through an ordeal more terrific, than either fire or water —that of starvation, will create much sensation throughout the State whenever the tidings of this thrilling event become fully known.

Late from lew 7lt*xi«-<>. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 22 May 1847

Late from New Mexico. A courier arrived from Monterey last evening. From him we learn that news has been received at the latter place, from Santa Fe of a late date. Gov. Charles Bent, Governor of New Mexico, had been assassinated by an Indian. A battle had fought between the Americans and Indians, in which 200 indians were killed, and 30 Americans ; six Indians were afterwards hung. We hear of no disturbance in the lower part of the country. Col. Fremont is in Monterey. His battalion, with the exception of the company for topographical purposes, has been disbanded. The Bark Whiten, Capt. Geltson, sails to-day for Oregon, via. Monterey. (Line Break) The waters of the San Joaquin, American Fork. and River Merced, were rising at last accounts. (Line Break) Gen. Kearny has not yet returned from the lower country. (Line Break) Several light showers of rain fell during the part week. (Line Break)

; [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 22 May 1847

From our Sonoma Correspondent Sonoma, May 8th. 1847. We are now in great confusion about our Alcalde. A few weeks since, Gov. Boggs received a letter from Gen. Kearny, appointing him to that office. Mr. Nash the old incumbent, who was elected by the people agreeable to the Proclamation of Com. Stockton, not having received ''notice of ejectment" from the General, declined giving up the books and papers of the office until he had a hearing before the General. One declines doing business until he receives the books and papers, and the other declines giving these up, and still feels a delicacy about doing business, which leaves us without a civil Magistrate. A few days since one man was accused -- and more, it could have been fairly proved -- of having stolen four horses from this neighborhood, another of stealing a saddle and bridle and another of breaking open a trunk, and therefrom stealing money and clothing ; all escaped punishment, because there was no Alcalde before whom they co...

Taylor rode up. The writer says : — Now came the thrilling scene of all. A hugs Tennesseean sung out ' silence men — here come* Old Z rk— three cheers for Old Zack."

From ill- London Spectator. I null*!* View* of the U. i<;m War. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 29 May 1847

From the London Spectator. English Views of the Mexican War. What can be done for Mexico? It is high time that we in England should take into serious consideration the question, what can be done to save the miserable and impotent republic of Mexico from extinction as an independent nation?— Apart from all the problematical evil consequences of its absorption into the United States—and they are momentous--- the fate of Mexico has an immediate practical importance for all classes of men in this country, being inseparably indentified with that of a vast amount of British capital. Expunge Mexico from the list of nations, and with the same blow you put out the fires on thousands of English hearths. Already we have suffered enough by the waste and decay of the wealth we have invested in that country ; the annihilation of what remains would scatter bankruptcy among our merchants, paralyze our industry, disorder all the functions of our national life, and spread starvation among our working...
