(From the Omnibus.) SELECTED TALE. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 12 June 1847
(From the Omnibus.) SELECTED TALE. EMMA POULTON: A LEGEND OF THE CIVIL WARS. The small chapel in the village of E -- , in the county of Wiltshire, though not noticed in the ' Beauties of England and Wales,' is by no means an object devoid of interest. Its shade und evident antiquity would jusie supposition that it was one of our primitive churches ; at any rate, the Gothic ornaments remaining on its walls indicate that its foundation belongs to a very remote period. The spot, too, on which it stands, is not without its associations : tradition says, that it was once the site of a Roman encampment, which is partly borne out by the existence of a deep and extended trench that reaches to the river which winds round the foot of the hill on which, the chapel stands. The churchyard, too, where, ' Each in his narrow cell forever laid, The rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep,' contains many tributes to departed worth, erected by those whose children shall in turn perform for them the same ...
HARD TO UNDERSTAND. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 12 June 1847
HARD TO UNDERSTAND.

Major Hensley, first called on Commodore Stockton, and told him, that from what he had learned on shore, that he, (Stockton) could draw for money and pay the men for their services and their propel ty which had been used in the war. Commodore Stockon told him, that il he (Hensley) would go and see Com. Biddle, he would send his Purler, Mr. Speden, with Him, and if, by anything they could say to Commodor* Biddle, could induce him to give the permission that lie (Stockton) would go to Valparaiso, or some other point where the money could be obtained, and draw for it on his own responfeibilitv, and...
For the Californiin. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 12 June 1847
For the Californian. Mr. Editor.—Having heard that a petition to make Lieut. Col. J.C. Fremont, Governor of this Territory had been signed by some of the people of the lower country, and that the same document is now quietly circulating through this district, I deem it not improper to make a few remarks. ¶ May I ask, what Col. Fremont has done since he came to California, that he should be thus selected for this high office ? ¶ To be sure we see a flaming account of the taking of this country by that distinguished officer in the report of the Secretary of War, (which must have come from his own reports and letters) but there is not a man in California, but knows that every word of that account is as far from the truth, as the said Col. has been from the glorious achivements the Secretary gives him credit for. ¶ No, Col. Fremont has done all in his power since his arrival in this country to cause the hatred of the Californians and the disgust of his fellow countrymen. ¶ I will now wi...

POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 19 June 1847
POETRY. (Line Break) THE DREAM OF THE REVELLER. By Mackey. Around the board the guests were met, the lights above them gleaming, And in their cups replenished oft, the ruddy wine was streaming ; Their cheeks were flushed, their eyes were bright, their hearts with pleasure bounded, The song was sung, the toast was giv'n, and loud the revel sounded ; I drainded my bumper with the rest, and cried, " away with sorrow, Let me be happy for to-day, and care not for to-mor-row !" But as I spoke, my sight grew dim, and slumber deep came o'er me, And 'mid the whirl of mingling tongues, this vision passed before me. Methought I saw a demon rise; he held a mighty bicker, Whose burnished sides run daily o'er, with floods of burning: liquor ; Around him pressed a clam'rous crowd, to taste this liquor greedy, All those oppressed by grief and debt, the dissolute and lazy, Blear-eyed old men, and reckless youths, and palsied women crazy ; " Give, give !" they cry, " give, give us drink to drown all ...
THE TEAR DROP. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 19 June 1847
THE TEAR DROP. We will imagine ourselves in the green room of a theatre in -- and what is a green room? Why a room some twenty feet square, where from six o'clock until midnight, are assembled actors, actresses, managers, dramatic authors, and editors. They meet for the purpose of conversation, properly understood, to amuse and to be amused and as all are friends, or to use the appropriate term, comrades, constraint is banished, and ambitious attemps at wit voted a bore — yet each one in turn may say his say, exhibiting some trait of amiableness, or cleverness, or show his power of exciting deep interest, Sometimes are heard the pleasant jest, the almost scandal, or the touching narrative; and the narrator can tell his story well, for he is sure of an indulgent audience. Two days ago I happened to hear a little story, in this green room, : which, though plain and simple, went to my heart. I will try to tell the tale as I heard it, and if it does not interest my reader, the fault is ...
For the Caltfbrnian. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 19 June 1847
For the Californian. Dear Sir.—Having seen an Editorial in your journal of June sth, stating that you intended to publish the proceedings of the Court in your town, as being the superior court of the district, (I suppose you mean the Northern District of California,) that the inferior courts may learn from its proceedings how to conduct theirs. The first case reported is that of a horse lost at a Mill in Santa Clara. The judge decides that as the horse was lost at Santa Clara, the case should be decided there, and accordingly binds the parties in a bond to appear at said place to determine the case. For my own part I am not connected with any court, but like many others seeking information ; 1 will theretore take the liberty of propounding a few questions knowing that the opinions of a superior court will be eagerly sought for by the inferior courts and people of the district. Ist.—Did it tend to the ends of justice when the parties were present in San Francisco, to put them to the ...
