Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 6 May 1847
We copy this week all that portion of the Report of the Secretary of war relating to California. The first hostile movements were so irregular, that we entertained serious apprehensions that there would be some trouble in making an amicable settlement of affairs. But the government seems disposed to take the "responsibility." ¶ ---ooo--- ¶ 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 iheir pay, but we have no doubt but that Col. Fremont will fit 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 has, we know not, but we are satisfied that he will do what he can to 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 may be approved or disapproved b...
(Extracts from the report of the Secretary of the Alavy.) [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 6 May 1847
(Extracts from the report of the Secretary of the Navy.) On the 7th of June, 1846, at Mazatlan, Commodore Sloat received satisfactory information through Mexico " that the Mexican troops, six or seven thousand strong had, by order of the Mexican government, invaded the territory of the United States north of the Rio Grande, and had attacked the forces under Gerierul Taylor, and that the squadron of the United States was blockading the ports of Mexico on the gulf." He properly considered " these hostilities as justifying his Commencing offensive operations on the west coast," and on the 8th of June sailed in the frigate Savannah " for tho coast of California, to carry out the orders of the department of the 24th of June, 1845." He arrived at Monterey on the 2d ol July, and on the 7th demanded a surrender of that place. This was evaded; and an adequate force landed from the squadron, took possession of ihc town, and raised the flag of the United States, without opposition or bloodshed...

POETRY. THE SAILOR BOY'S FAREWELL. Wait wait ye winds 'till I repeat, A parting signal to the fleet, Whose station is at home ; Then waft the sea boy's simple prayer, And let it oft be whispered there, Whilst in far climes I roam. Farewell to Father—revered hulk, In spite of metal—apite of bulk— Soon may his cable slip : But while the cheek with tears is moist, The flag of gratitude I'll hoist, In duty to the ship. Farewell to mother—first class she, Who launched me on life's stormy sea, And rigged me fore and aft ; May Providence her timbers spare, And keep her hull in good repair, To tow the smaller craft. Farewell to Sister—lovely yacht — But whether sh'll be manned or not, I cannot now foresee ; May some good ship a tender prove, Well found in stores of truth and love, And take her under lee. Farewell to George the Jolly boat, And all the little craft afloat, TpJinjn^gVHplightfiil hay : ■' When thejtvwive at sailling age, May jvisdofm We their weather gage, And guide them on the...

The enlarged paper will be sent to all of our subscribers to finish the year for which they first subscribed, and on their renewal for the new series or second volume, they will pay in advance three dollars 75 cents, which will entitle them to the paper to the end of the second volume. Persons subscribing now will pay five dollors per annum. We thought it best to commence a new volume, although only nine months of the small paper had heen published, on account of the paper having been so much enlarged. Our patrons will probably enquire why the Californian is now published at San Francisco instead of Monterey. We feel it, not only a duty, but a privilage to answer that inquiry, and we believe it can be done to their satisfaction without giving offence to any, or the disparagement of either place. We first located at Monterey because the Press was there, the Navy was there, and the Government was there, and we had no important interest at any other place. We were as liberally supporte...
THICKER THAN THREE IN A BED. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 22 May 1847
THICKER THAN THREE IN A BED. The hotels at Washington on the 4th of March were so crowded that the visitors were compelled to sleep upon chairs and tables, after the beds were packed full. One of the accounts we have have seen reminds us of an old Boston story which we heard in our younger days. A Vennonter " came down" during the winter with a couple of frozen hogs in his pung and lumber box, and drove up to a hotel at the north end. The house was full as it could hold, and the barkeeper one of the driest wags that ever cracked a joke. " Can I have my horse put up and get lodging for myself at this ere tavern ?" said the Vennonter, kicking- the snow from his shoes, and addressing the barkeeper. " You can have both, sir," rejoinnd the barkeeper. " Well, I wish you'd flax round and git supper as fast as you can, cause I'm allfired hungery and tired tu. I've druv all the way from Chelsford since dinner, and some sassygis or something of that sort would'iit go bad jist now," continued ...

The Greenfield Courier, in announcing the death at Leyden, August 80, of Mr. William Dorrill, aged 94, relates an interesting account of the manner in which many years since, a strange fanaticism with which he was infected, was beaten out of him by main force. We copy the story. related in the Courier. Mr. Dorrill, was a refugee from the British army, under Gen. Burgoyne, and was in 1797 the leader of a fanatical sect, who pretended to be possessed of supernatural powers, and armed with the powers of the Diety, and that it was not in the power of man to hurt them. Dorrill and his followers abstained from flesh ; made use of neither food nor clothing that was procured at the expense of life. And Dorrill assured his followers if they had full faith in him they would never die. They put off their leather shoes and had others made of cloth or wood, and lived upon milk and vegetables. One was a blacksmith, and he procured and used a pair of cloth bellows. They discarded all revelations, ...
