POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 5 June 1847
POET RY. THE WROLD AS IT IS. This world after all is a great deal better than we give it credit for. There is more of kindness, friendship and than philosophers are willing to allow. We like ihese verses. Tins world i? not ?&lt;"&gt; bad a world As some would like to make it ; Though whether good or whether bad ; Depends on how we take it. For if •■ - ,md fret ail clay, From dewy morn till even ; This world will ne'er afford to man A foretaste acre of heaven. This world in truth's as good a world As e'er was known to any, Who have not seen another yet, And these are very many And if the men and women too ; Have plenty of employment, Those surely must be hard to please Who connot find enjoyment. This world is quite a clever world, In rain or pleasant weather, If people would but learn to liveIn harmony together. Nor seek to burst the kindly bond F»y ' c and peace cemented, And Icrn that best of lessons yet, Always to be contented. Then were the world a pleasant world,...
No. 4.—Septembr 12. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 5 June 1847
No. 4. — Septembr 12. About the time the foregoing proclamation was issued two young men, Mr. T. Cowie and Mr. Fowler, who lived in the neighborhood, started to go to the Bodega ; on their way they were discovered by a small party of Californias, under command of one Padilla, and taken prisoners ; they were kept as prisoners for one day and a half, and then tied to trees and cut to pieces in the most brutal manner, a Californian, known as four fingered Jack, has been since captured, and gives the following account of that horrible scene : — The party after keeping the prisoners a day or two, tied them to trees, then stoned them, one of them had his jaw broken, a riata (rope) was made fast to the broken bone and the jaw dragged out, they were then cut up, a small piece at a time, and the pieces thrown at them, or crammed in their throats, and they were eventually despatched by cutting out their bowels. Fortunately for humanity, those cold blooded savage marderd were soon put to an en...
(From the Flag of our Union.) ATHENAIS [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 5 June 1847
(From the Flag of our Union.) ATHENAIS BY FRANCES S. OSGOOD. CHAPTER I. In her utmost lightness there is truth — and often she speaks lightly ; And she has a graco in being — which inournors even approve ; ■■ . .

He should have let the wayward youth alone, and ten to one. he would have fallen desperately in lovo with the very being whom he now vowed ho would not so much as look at — because he was sure beforehand that she would not please him.

TO ATHENAIS [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 5 June 1847
TO ATHENAIS A pilgrim here — with waiting heart— I've passed by many a blooming shrine, And some were wrought with rarest art, And some were touched by light divine. Why won they not the gift — the prayer ? My soul wouM fain have worshipped there — But something whispered still — ' Beware I 1I 1 Not THBSt are thine, Thai dream resign ! Nor thus profane the appointed hour When blooms for thee thy promised flower ? And calmly then I went my way ; Too Sacred glowed the fire I nursed, To blend with any but the ray, The one dear ray — the last — the first — The only one, reserved to share My path below — its joy — its care — And that sweet life in Aiden, where Each radiant dream, That lends its gleam, A glimpse of Heaven our earth to give, Will take its own bright shape— and lire! Speak, lady, did I wait in vain — In vain reserve the sacred fire ? Must love, beneath thy far disdain, Make of this heart his funeral pyre I A soft light dawns upon my way — A flower unfolds, mv steps to stay ...
From the London Times, Juh; 6th. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 5 June 1847
From the London Times, July 6th. We have at length received the Mexican accounts of the late collision with the American forces on the Rio Grande, and it is satisfactory to find that no attempt has been made to disguise from the people of Mexico the fact that they have sustained a severe defeat, and that their armies are wholly unable to carry on the war with any hope of success. The blockade o£Tampico, Vera Cruz, and other Atlantic ports, appears^ have been conducted with due consideration to neutral interests by the American Commodore Conner, and to be supported by a sufficient force. That officer has under his command the Cumberland, Raritan, Potomac, John Adams, SomSt. Mary's, and the steamships Mississippi and Princeton. It remains however, to be seen whether he will venture to attack St. Juan dc Ulloa. which is at all times an opperation of great difficulty and danger, from the sudden northern gales which expose a squadron to iction on the reefs that protect the fortifications...

MILITARY DESPOTISM. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 5 June 1847
MILITARY DESPOTISM. Wo hear much of military despotism. There is no form of government, which has more horrors, or sound more harsh loan American. i ; From our infancy, *c have been accustonied to look to the ballot box as the lust resort for redress of grievances. The privilege of asking, or petitioning our rulers to do any particular thing, is set forth in the constitution, and has never been denied, even to the humblest American citizen. An American who believes there exists a real grievance his FIRST thought is to petition, them to remonstrate, and when every ether remedy fails, be sets to work to correct the evil it the ballot box, but he never thinks of RESISTANCE, and why ? Because be has been tought from boyhood that he is one of the governors of the land ; there is nothing beyond his reach. The President is his servant and not his master. The Commanding General, must do his bidding. " He is the law." He is the government. It is contrary to the first principle of nature, for...
