I •!. FrraioMt in (alif»r»ia. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 12 June 1847
Col. Fremont in California The UNION, (Wash. City) of Nov. last, has one page and over filled with letters, despatches and certificates, vindicating this officer from a charge preferred against him by Gen. Jose Castro, former prefect of California, in a despatch to the Mexican Government, dated April 1, 1846. The N. Y. SPECTATOR publishes therefrom many interesting extracts, and most of which we give below. It will lie seen that his operations here DURING THE EARLY PART OF THE WAR, were actuated by win and prudent motives and that he pursued a course for which he can in nowise be censured. The substance of the charge preferred against him is presented in the following extract from the despatch : -- This officer, failing in the respect due to the laws of rthe republic and the authorities of the country, introduced himself in the midst of the population of the department with a respectable force, under, pretext of coming with a scientific commission from his government; and treating w...

Prospects of Peace with Mexico - We doubt much whether these prospects are materially improved, as many seem to suppose, by the success of the army of which we have but recently received the tidings. We have heretofore insisted that the mere field defeat of the opposing forces woul.d not restore that peace which either government now so ardently desired, nor humble the proud spirit of the excited Republic; to this assertion do we still as finely adhere, looking forward to an end of opposition, only, when the Capitol itself shall have passed into American hands. And will this event bring about an adjustment of the present difficulties? Let us see. Concentgrated in the city of Mexico is the vast wealth of that rich Republic; - here is the Seat of Government, this, like Rome of old, the last relinquished - the cherished home of ancestry, worshipped by Mexican hearth, even when Mexican arms cannot defend. That the rude Volunteer should riot within those walls, and "revel in the Halls of...

[From the N. Y. Herald, Nov.] The Progress of Annexation -- Our New Territory on the Pacific. We give in to-day's paper, a series of letters from our special correspondents at Monterey and Mazatlan, in California, embracing the operations of our squadron and people in consummating the acquisition of that territory. These letters also give a comprehensive view of the state of the country under its native, or rather its Mexican rulers, and present a startling picture of the total absence of security for life or property under the imbecile government which has hitheito exercised authority in California. ¶ This beautiful region a now virtually a portion of tho United Status territory. It now only remains to appoint a Governor and territorial offlcers, to give strength and solidity to the legal government, and to establish such wise enactmenu and regulations for tin protection of life j and property, the sala « &gt;f |.in«l, and other matters requiring grove consideration, as sha...

Travellers for the United States It is rumored, with with considerable appearnee of truth, that Gen. Kearny and Col. Fremont, who lately left Monterey for the United Slates, have been robbed of all their horses by the Indians on tbe banks of the San Joaquin. It seems that tho San Joaquin and its tributaries have been excessively swollen by the melting of the vast accumulation of snow deposited on the mountains by the storms of the past winter, and the General and his party, was compelled to follow it up an unusual distance towards it sources in the Indian country, in order to find a practicable ford. He was on his way to Fort Sacramento, when the supposed unlucky occurance befel him. Com. Stockton is daily expected here from Monterey, in the frigate Congress, and purposes leaving for tbe United States, as we have been informed, by the Rocky Moun!atn Road, on the first of July. Capt. Gillespie, his fellow traveller, arrived here on Tuesday evening last from Nappa Valley, whew he has ...

From China. We find in the island papers, received by late arrivals, China news of seme interest, and as late as the month of March. The American Minister, Alexander H. Everett, arrived in China October 5th. On Tuesday morning last, Mr. Everett, the American Minister to China, embarked at Macoa in the U. S S. Vincennes, Capt Paulding. for Canton — his object being to present his credentials to the Provincial Government, as represent tativo of the American nation. His arrival in Canton will doubtless be hailed by his countrymen as as an omen of no trifling import as regards their present safety and protection, and their future position as an important section of the foreign community of Canton. Mr. Everett will seek an interview with that far-famed, celebrated, but wily statesmen, Keying: which important question wilt engage their principal discussion, we know not, but have no doubt the result will soon be published for the information and satisfaction of all immediately concerned.
