I'rm Inaialio'i. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 16 January 1847

Proclamation. We publish again to day in another column, the proclamation of Commodore Stockton, for the information of the people -- they may know and understand the laws by which they are now governed. The proclamation is the paramount law of the land, and must be regarded by all the Courts throughout California, and by the people as such, until a civil organization takes place; which, from private information recently reicireJ, will bo commenced in a few weak*. It will bo observed that the pro- , clamation puts in force at the samo time two different kinds of law— the ono civil, and the i other military— the one according to the notions of home, irreconcilablo with the other; which if they were correct, would afford a new itch fjr some commentator on the io.\n.inor laws. These two laws we will endeavor to »how, may both be in fjrfe it the sams tiue. and not con- ! diet v.itu each other. Military law which is extremely rigorous ia its requirements and fen- ; allies, ii never pat i...

PROSPECTUS OF THE CALIFORNIA STAR [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 16 January 1847

PROSPECTUS OF THE CALIFORNIA STAR The undersigned in common with the rest of the citizens of the United States, having experienced the good effects of the Press in diffesing early and accurate information on all important subjects, in advocating and defending the rights of every class of the people, in detecticg, exposing and opposing tyrany and oppression— and being anxious to secure to himself and the citizens of his adopted country, the benefits of a free, fearless and untrammalled Newspaper—Purchased and brought with him to California a press and all the materials necessary to effect that desirable object. Contrary to our original intention, but being fully convinced that the present crisis in the affairs of the country demands it, we have resolved to commence at once the publication of a paper to be styled "THE CALIFORNIA STAR". The peculiar situation of our country, and the absence of all sinister motives forbid the idea of the intrusion into our colums of party politics — the...

Frew /A- .Vrte York //rra.'</. IMIm- I.xlcmi WnrKudedf [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 23 January 1847

From the New York Herald. Is the Mexican War Ended? An opinion is begining to be expressed, in various circles, that the Mexican war will be ended by the taking of Metamoras which it is now believe has taken place. It is argued that the successive defeats of the Mexican arms by such a number of Americans, exhibited to such an extent the superior discipline, energy and bravery of the Americans, that they will not any further venture to take the field against them, and that it is probable to retreat to the south has been agreed upon by the Mexican Generals to effect some, revolution in that country, or to make an application fur an armistice, or sueing for peace. Such a result is not altogether improbable --- Arista, who was at the head of the Mexican army, is an ambicious man, and at one time attempted to create a revolution against Paredes in one ol the northern departments, where he commanded. Circumstances prevented the issueing of his intended pronounciamento from taking place. I...

t'lianate of HVxlro [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 23 January 1847

t'lianate of HVxlro There are three great natural divisions ofcoun try in Mexico, each flff which has its peculiar climate First, theie fa the level strip of land on the Gulf coast, the hot region extending north and south from V'era Crnz, the permaueut abode of yellow fever and life-distrovins? maJara. From twenty to sixty miles back of this strip, coinmenee* the great paradise, or temperate region, where eternal snow rests on the top of lofty mountains, over which cool zephyrs are wafted to the torriM valleys in summer. The climate here i* remarkably healthy. The heats of summer ara much less seveie than in the central States of NortL America, while an invigorating atmosphere infuses now energies into the debilitated traveler as he assended from the lands on the Gulf coast — This great table extends south to the Isthmus of Tehuntepec, and indefinitely north, joining the high lands of Texas, a few miles above Matarnoras.

'IfMfiin Tradition. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 23 January 1847

Mexican Tradition. Previous to the discovery of this continent by Columbus, the Oracle at Mexico gave out a prophesy that a great ruler was to come from the East. Cortez the Spanish conqueror, was mistaken for him by the priests, until he made war on their idols and their callings. Most of the Indian tribes persisted in believing in Cortez, but the priests gererally denied his mission, and submitted at last only when compelled by the force of gunpowder. A few of the priests retired to Northern Mexico, where they took refuge with their kindren, about the year 1530. and a village of native Indians is still to be found in the vicinity of Santa Fe, in which the holy fire had been kept up for ages, waiting the return of their great king ! The village is called San Miguel, or El Bado. The United States road passes through it and it is very near our western borders, about fifty miles from Santa Fe. The holy fire is also, kept up in the village of Jamas, in the same vicinity. These Indians ...

>.%» h;!-ol »l-i< ;«! Diwovery at Dover. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 23 January 1847

Archaeological Discovery at Dover. We learn from the Dover. (Eng) Telagraph, that the workman, in clearing the ground for the erection of some new houses in the Priory Grounds, developed three of the lower arches of a church or chapel, one only of these was perfect when opened, and this was displaced by a fall of the earth adjoining. The whole is of the Norman style, and built of Caen stone. The floor was paved with glazed tiles of the period. many of which are in good preservation; under the tiles was turned up a structure of burned wood, which seemed to show that a chapel standing on the same site had been distroyed by fire Many skeletons were discovered during the excavations. They appeared to have been generall intered in graves lined with chalk ;y nothing, however, excepting the bones had hitherto been obtained. May all mankind make free to enjoy the blessings of liberty, but never take the liberty to sub vert the principles of freedom.

■i;;. Weather [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 23 January 1847

The Weather We noticed on the morning of the 19th inst., in the streets, ice nearly a quarter of an inch thick, the first that we have seen this season. It is said by those who have lived in the country several years, that this is an unusally cold season. Our friends on the Atlantic coast in latitude 38o north who are in snow to their knees for three months in the year, will probably find it difficult to account for this great difference in the temperature of the climate on the two oceans. (Line Break) The commanders of Launches in the Bay, will confer a favour upon us, by letting us know the time of their departure, and their destination that we may have an opportunity of sending our paper to the subscribers around the bay. The Russian Brig Constantine from Sitka, arrived on the morning of the 16th inst. She was seventeen days out; ten days at the north of the bay, being prevented by unfavorable winds, from getting in. She brought nothing but stone as ballast.

The Late Insurrection We supposed tilt that the little notice in our last paper of the recent difficulties in this district would induce some aquainted with all the particulars to communicate them to us that they mighl be laid before the people. This has not been done however, and not having had an opportunity of obtaining an offical account of the affair, we proceed to lay before our readers all the information in our possession in relation to it. About five weeks since the Alcalde of Yerba Buena who is also Lieutenant the U. S. Navy, was sent with six marines by the Governor of the district ashort distance into the country on business fir a government; while attending to that business, they were surprised, and taken prisoners by a company of armed Mexicans, under Francisco Sanches. Until that moment, we believed it was not known that there was a armed party of the enemy in the district; consequently the Alcalde and the men under his command were not on their guard. A soon as the f...
