Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 10 July 1847

We have but on two occassions, ever published the name of the "California Star." The first, was on the reception of the first number, we gave it the usual announcement, barely stating, that it was published by Samuel Brannan, the Mormon leader in California, and hoped that he might make himself and his paper useful, but before it lived out its first two months, we were satisfyed that our hopes were vain, and we in common with almost every other person in a public capacity, were assailed in the grossest language, we remembered the old addage, that, " if you lie down with dogs, you must rise up with fleas," and having a great horror for those active little insects, we took not the slightest notice of the "great big Star," and suffered it to besmear itself with its own venom; and we should certainly do so now, but the present editor though wearing breeches made for a boy, is large enough to fill the trowsers of a giant, has arrived at the very erroneous conclusion that integrity in an ...

ORATION DELIVERED IN SAN FRANCISCO, ON THE 4th JULY, 1847, BY R. SEMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 10 July 1847

ORATION DELIVERED IN SAN FRANCISCO, ON THE 4th JULY, 1847, BY R. SEMPLE. Ladies and Gentlemen :—By the request of a number of citizens, I have consented to deliver an oration in honor of the day, though it was unexpected, and what I may say, will be without previous preparation. We have met to celebrate the anniversary of the Independence of the United States. It is not only that it is the anniversary of the birth-day of a Nation, but because it was the birth-day of liberty, in its broadest sense. It opened a wide field for the expansion of the mind, and brought about a degree of civil liberty which had not been enjoyed before ; It gave full scope for Anglo Saxon courage and enterprise, and the equality of rights enjoyed in the United Slates has peopled her rich valleys & beautiful plains with the best blood ol'lhe world. When religious intolerance drove thousands of the noblest minds of the old world from the land of their nativity, their eyes were turned to this side o...

For the Californian. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 10 July 1847

For the Californian. Mr. Editor :—We find ourselves in a situation both strange and peculiar. In the limes of Napoleon millions in Europe may have been similarly placed. To Yankees it is new and extremely irksome. It employs iheir minds if not their persons to find out a " remedio," In fact we belong (as Californians always did) to no one. Half of the old saying—" Born to no master" is reversed : we live but to serve a host. We belong to no nation, to no government: therefore enn be governed by no Jaws, no usuages. We are not of Mexico, which nation was in California often " served more in the breach <hau in the observance," because the United States has taken us from that power. We are not of the United States, simply because until Mexico relinquishes this territory to her, or Congress " annexes" California by special act, our former country can have no claim on the farthest west. Vattal said, (and Vattal knew) "aconquered people for the time being must be governed by th...

To the Editors ofthe Califorman. Monterey [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 17 July 1847

To the Editors ofthe Califorman. Monterey U. S. Frigate Congress. Harbour of San Diego, March 10th 1847. Gentlemen, — In an editorial article in the California!! of the 13th February, you may find the following paragraph. Commodore Stockton announced to the oflicers that the whole expedition was placed under the command of Gen. Keeniy, himself holding hit Station as Commander in Chief of California, and Gen. Kearny did command, the ichvle expedition." I take the first opportunity to say to you that the above paragraph is not true in any one ol its important particulars. It is not true that I placed the vhole expedition under the command of General Kearny, nor did 1 so announce it. On the request of General Kearny and with the consent of Lieut. Rowan, (to whom with the consent of Lieut. Minor, who had previously held it, I had given the command only the night before.) I appointed Gen. Ivearny to command the troops, and so announced it ; at the same time stated distinctly that I still...

TO THE PEOPLE OF CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 17 July 1847

TO THE PEOPLE OF CALIFORNIA. In retiring from the Editorial chair of a public Journal it has been customary to give sorne reason for such a change and to introduce the successor. I will claim an additional privilege, having published the first newspaper ever printed in California. Not only to bow myself out of the Editorial Chair with the. usual acknowledgements, but to return my most heartfelt thanks for the very liberal support which has been given to the Californian, and heavy mantle of charity which has covered its numerous failings. These failings have been many, not from neglect, or a want of a proper desire to make the Californian useful, but from want of materials in the mechanical part, and the entire absentee of any means of collecting news, and of mail facilities for distributing it when it was collected. Although I have watched every ship, boat and passenger from one place to another, yet many of mv patrons have been long delayed in getting their papers, and some have fa...
