PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 15 January 1853

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. We are indebted to Capt. C. J. Couts, who came up from San Diego on Monday last, for a copy of the Panama Star of Dec. 23d, containing the President's Message to Congress, delivered on the Gth ul£. An .abstract of this important document, is all that our limits will permit: The President alludes to the unadjusted difference existing'between the governments of Great Britain and the United Mates, upon the interpretation of the first article of .the convention of 1818, in reference to the 'fisheries upon the coast of the British Provinces of N. America, and proposes a convention for the re- . consideration ofjjhei entire subject of t&o fisheries, fun a view to place them upon'a more liberal footing of reciprocal privilege. Great .Britain is desirous to include in onu comprehensive settlement as well this subject as the commercial intercourse between the U. S. and the British Provinces. The President.however thinks that these two subjects should be embra...

Another Route Across tlie Mexican Isthmus. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 15 January 1853

Another Route Across tlie Mexican Isthmus. In the uncertainty as to tho Tehuantepec route, produced by the delay of the Mexican authorities, other companies have eagerly entered the v £ald— applied for and obtained immfljtirt privileges for the -opening of an intfcroceftnic route at point's} farther north than Tehuantopec. That by way of Vera Cruz, Puebla and the River Mescala, which was granted to Col Ramsay, and associates, has proved, by careful surveys, to be entirely practicable and may bo made available for a comparatively small outlay of. capital. There is no doubt of its speedy completion. There is still another route across the Isthmus, about midway between Tehuantepec and the Mescala, for the .'opening and improvement of which jlir Jonas ■P. Levy has obtained an exclusive grant from .Mexico, and we perceive by our late Mexican .exchanges, that the concession to any company of the right to open Tehuantepec is opposed on •the ground that it would be in conflict with tthe gra...

— Atlantic and Paclfiaßailroad. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 15 January 1853

<> Atlantic and Pacific Railroad. Tho citizens of San Diego have recently held two public meetings, and have put forth an able report upon the subject of a railroad from the Atlantic to the Pacific. The report sets forth at length the advantages in favor of the Southern, or Gila route, over the Northern route, and concludes by petioning Congress that an appropriation be made for the payment of the expenses of the preliminary survey of both routes. ¶ After a thorough survey of both routes the decision must necessarily be in favor of the Southern road as the shoreft, cheapest, most practicable and most profitable. No man should entertain sectional preferences or prejudices. A railroad from the Atlantic to the Pacific has become a necessity and the only question at present is, which route is the most practicable? Let Congress take the requisite appropriation for a survey, and all the advantages, pecuniary and natural of one route over the other will Necessarily be...

Singular Operation. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 15 January 1853

Singular Operation. Some few days since a gentleman residing in the Monte, was shot while at work, the ball entering the back part of the thigh to the depth of half an inch. There being no medical assistance within reach, he resolutely set to work to extract the ball himself, unaided and alone. Being unable from the location of the wound to go.through with it under his own eye, even, but determined to save his life if possible, he trusted all to the "touch." and seizing upon a gimlet, the only "surgical" implement to be had, he bared to the wintry breeze the lacerated section of quivering meat, and unflinchingly bored into the ball, thus acquiring a secure hold, when with a prodigious effort of muscular strength he wrenched the little oustomer from its nest. This novel method of extracting lead is an incident in the practice of surgery. We shall expect henceforth to see our bone carpenters discard their curiously contrived instruments and supply their places with a kit of carpenter'...

Railroad to the Southern Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 15 January 1853

Railroad to the Southern Mines. The Alta California is informed that the preliminary measures have all been taken,and that in the course of three or four weeks workmen will commence grading for a railroad leading from Stockton to the principal Southern mines. The route selected is that commonly known as Byrne's road, being on almost a straight line from Stockton to Sonora, and crossing the river at the Stanislaus Suspension Bridge, heretofore known as the Table Mountain Ferry. The distance, according to this route, is only fifty four miles between the two oities. It is proposed'to extend the railroad to the base of the hills, a distance of twenty eight miles from Stockton, and a suitable point for branches leading to Mariposa and the Calaveras. The'greater part of the stock engaged, and the capital secured, sotliat there is no danger'of any failure. It is intended to haye the cars running with freight and passengers-within a year from the present time; and then, farewell to scarcity...

The Grape Crop. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 15 January 1853

The Grape Crop. Our correspondent at San Pedro putsdown the total number of packages of grapes shipped at that port for San Francisco, at 5825, Some of the packages contained several hundred pounds, whilst others fell short of fifty—so that any estimate of'the net weight could only approach accuracy. Those best acquainted with the bu-: siness say that three hundred tons would not - exceed the actual shipments. The grape ulators have made a losing business the past season, sufficient to deter most of them from engaging in tho fruit trade another season.—. What with the high freights, and the frequent detention of the steamers, the business cannot be profitable. San Pepro, Jan. 15,1853. Messrs Lewis & Rand,—Gents : The great rush caused by the fruit season being over, and the very muddy roads having, in a great measure, put a stop to business, we take advantage of tho present dull times, to write a few lines to your worthy selves.

A March Across the Desert. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 15 January 1853

A March Across the Desert. A correspondent of the Providence Journal, attached to the U. S. Mexican Boundary Commission,in a letter from the junction of the Gila and Colorado rivers, gives the following account of a march across the desert: '¶ "It is only by actual experience that one can form any idea of the utter desolation and barrenness of the desert extending from the Colorado to the coast range of mountains. When we crossed it in February we had no water for about eighty miles, though now, thanks to the labors of Capt. Davidson, there is a well opened in the arroyo of Alamo Mucho, and the longest *jornada* is forty-five or fifty miles. At the few watering places, the supply is scanty, and we were obliged to keep men constantly at the wells, dipping up the water as it oozed through the sand. The water at all the wells is hard and brackish, and seems to create thirst rather than allay it. There is not a spear of grass for about one hundred miles, nor any herbage uport which anim...
