Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 19 June 1847

Lots in Benicia City.—Persons wishing to secure lots at the above desirable location, who will not be able to attend the Sale, which will take place on the 24th instant, may secure lots by applying at this office, NAME CHANGED.—The name of the city of Francisca, recently laid out at the Straits of Carquinez on the Bay of San Francisco, has been changed to BEN - ICIA CITY. At the request of my partner, Mr. Larkin, and several other persons, I have consented to this change. The reason for the change is, that this town of Yerba Buena, is, by order of an Alcalde, called San Francisco, and it was thought that the names being so much alike, might create confusion. If I had called the new city San Francisco I should have had a right to the name so far as this place is concerned. To prove it, I will give a history of facts :— When the first settlement was made on this Bay it was called San Francisco. A place about three miles from here was called the port of San Francisco, all the vessels w...

SPEECH OF THE KING OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 19 June 1847

SPEECH OF THE KING OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. [translation.] Nobles and Representatives : I have ordered you again to assemble to deliberate together, for the benefit of my subjects and of foreigners who reside under my jurisdiction. I have ordered my ministers to lay before you, in detail, the reports of their several departments. I am happy to say that peace and order prevail throughout my islands ; and that the cause of education, religion and morality, is steadily advancing. It pains me to tell you that in some districts, there has been a scarcity of food, arising in some places from drought, in others from the trespass of cattle, in others from an unusual concourse of ships, and in others, from neglect of cultivation. I recommend to your most serious consideration, to devise means to promote the agriculture of the islands, and profitable industry among all classes of their inhabitants. It is my wish that my subjects should possess lands upon a secure title ; enabling them to live...

POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 26 June 1847

POETRY. From the Boston villas. TO AMERICANS. Sons of the sires, who. o'er the sea, Brought Freedom's pure and holy flame, And built her tempie where the free Might dare to worship in her name ; Too long, before her altars old. Have hearts been dead anu honor cold. Those gray-haired men of elder days. Who round these hills and valleys trod, And made them vocai with the pratse Of hearts upright, attuned to God. What burning tears their eyelids steep, If shades like theirs majestic weep ! And they, whose souls of tire were tried Where kindred hosts in combat reeled, Who turned the battle's rolling tide On many a wild and stormy field, — If manhood's nobler thought be dead, Id vain they fought, in rain they bled ! If Freemen they were justly styled, Who only brook no despot's chain, The savage roaming through his wild, Or Arab on ins desert plain, Stamped on the starry rolls of fame, Were blended with the hero's name. But generous Freedom only lives, Wher^ manly souls are high and true...

ILLUSTRIOUS MECHANICS. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 26 June 1847

ILLUSTRIOUS MECHANICS. Adam, the father of the race was a gardener. He had, however, a strange propensity for tasting unwholesome fruit, which produced very injurious effects, both upon himself and his offspring. Noah was a shipwright; nnd husbandman ; he navigated the whole earth in his ark, and got ' seas over' in his vineyard. Solomon- was an architect, a poet and a philosopher; his conduct, however, was not always by line and rule, he trod the circle of dissipation, was erratic in his imaginations, and violated his own maxims. His conscience and strength of mind however reclaimed him, and ; his repentance is the most beautiful of, the works which he has left for the contemplation of his species. The Apostle Paul was a tent maker, and labored with his hands at his vocation, while he endeavored to infuse into the minds of his fellow men, the important truths of revelation. While he screened them with earthly tabernacles from, the weather, he held above their souls the aegis of div...

FAREWELL TO THE BOTTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 26 June 1847

FAREWELL TO THE BOTTLE. (Break) Farewell -- a long farewell, Thou mirth-creating spell No more to thee My songs shall be, Drinking, singing, Glasses ringing , More on mine ear, Shall never hear. My splores are past And now at last There comes a calm, A hallowing balm, For pains and aches, For feverish shakes, And all the madd'ning train Of ills, that ever fill the brain When whisky 's fumes o'er reason mount, For now that evil working fountain Hath ceased to charm me with its liquid glow, And Reason's o'er the bottle's whimsies mounting, Leads the calm mind to a more frightening fount. That gives a clear view of every thing below, Yet, there were raptures, I can ne'er forget, And many moments o'er the goblet's brim unwasted For Friendship's ardour sparkles through them yet. And makes me scarce regret the draughts I've tasted; While all the unclosed fondness of the soul Was breathing fragrance round the joyous bowl -- And smiles I've loved, and hearts that I have tried Have beamed, a...

AGENTS FOR THE CALIFORNIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 26 June 1847

AGENTS FOR THE CALIFORNIAN. The following persons are authorised to receive subscriptions for the Californian. W. W. Scott, at Sonoma. Capt. J. A. Sutter, at New Helvetia. T. H. Green, at Monterey. Slavery in California. — There has already been much said in the United States on the subject of slavery in California, and some warm discussions in Congress, it is unfortunate for them, that they know so little of the wishes of the people who are here, and of the climate and location of the country. On a former occasion, speaking on that subject, we stated that not one in one hundred would be in favor of the introduction of slavery here. We have since conversed with a great number of persons and have not found one who was not bitterly opposed to the measure. We cannot, of course, know who will come here, but we feel perfectly confident that if the warmest advocate for that institution were to reside for one year in California, he would change his notions, and if the subject at any future...

EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 26 June 1847

EDUCATION. It may be questioned; whether improvements in the domain of man's spiritual nature, have kept pace with the extraordinary inventions which characterize the present era of physical development in its most extended signification. Not that man's material frame is more robust than during former ages; for the reverse is most likely true. But we allude to those mighty agencies which he has pressed into his service, to anticipate his intentions—to forestall his efforts—to minister to his wants; and to do his bidding thus becoming, as it were, a part of himself—the seeming multiplication of his own physical powers. It may indeed be said that the outer world of man's mechanism, and contrivance, is the reflex of his mental nature; revealing, as in a glass. the progress of his spiritual development. But after due allowance for all that can be urged on the score, we still feel that there is much to be done. The mind of man must be looked upon as something more than a mere sponge to a...

LATE NEWS FROM MEXICO. By a gentleman who arrived on Thursday evening from Monterey, we have received a letter from Mazatlan, confirming the victory of Gen. Taylor, and stating also the fall of Vera Cruz and its far-famed Castle. Gen.

For Ihe Californinn. INDIAN TRADITION, OF THE BAY OF SAN FRANCISCO. Mr. Editor : — I have frequently heard, since my arrival in California, that there was an Indian tradition, which was universally received among the Indians here, 'hat, at no great length of time past, the Buy of Sao 1* runcisco was an inland sea of/re»/» water ; that there was but a very narrow drain, an outlet and that was at Hie point where the Paheias river now empties into the Ba« of Monterey. I have recently conversed with a very intelligent genlleuiMn, who, with one of the Missionary Priests, visited several ol the Indian Villages, in the neighborhood ol Sonoma, which is now on the North side of toe Bay, they found several, sensible old indians who confirmed ihe traJitiou ; one of them, saitl ho had learned from his father, that his grandfarther, hud been in the habit of attending tho annual feasts nt Monterey, and that they travelled by land, having nothing more than small Mountain streams to pass, which the...
