E •■tnr of the California*. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 17 July 1847

To the Editor of the Californian. Mr. Editor, — The United States have now occupied and preserved this territory one year. During the last five months has been held in quiet possession by their forces. General Kearny soon after assuming his duties as governor, declared in a proclamation dated March 1st 1847, that, the President of the United States had instructed him to " take charge of the civil government of California" and that he entered " upon his duties with an ardent desire to promote" as far as he was able, the interests of the country. In addition, he says, " it will be his duty and his pleasure to comply with those instructions ; he calls upon them all " the people of California " to exert themselves in preserving order and tranquility, in promting harmony and and in maintaining the authority and efficiency of the laws." Gen. Kearny having abdicated and Col. Mason having stept into his place, we would particularly call the attention of His Excellency to the fact, that noth...

To the Editor of the California??. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 24 July 1847

To the Editor of the Californian. Mr. Editor :-- " Lex" does not presume to be a philosopher, and consequently but a very poor observer of things. It could not be expected therefore, that all the virtues adorning the character of a good man, should, under such circumstances be found embodied in his articles. Indeed he does not profess or lay claim to any, and is just as well satisfied to be thought to know a little, as to be believed to know much. It might very possibly be then, that the remarks published in your last paper were of a character to create surprise in this community; as well as to awaken the argus eyed occupants of this territory. We say it is very possible. But ** Lex" begs leave to assure the people, that he did not desire to indulge them in a surprise ; nor did he have the most remote design to give the slightest cause of fear, or ground of suspicion to our military friends; that any disrespect, or intention to disturb their (Next Column) peaceful slumbers was inten...

But, we firmly believe in the adage, that, '• it is never to lato to learn," (we of course mean thi9 in a literary sense.) And we hope attention, with the gradual experience that will be acquired, may ultimately enable us to accomplish what we so ardently desire ; which is simply, to conduct the press, with credit to ourself, and advantage to the public.

To the Editor of Uu CALiroß*i.uf. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 24 July 1847

To the Editor of Uu CALiroß*i.uf. Mr. Editor :—lt: — It is a favorite and an old maxim, that "necessity knows no law." But another the offspring of the proceeding, nearly as old and more familiar, that "necessity is the mother of invention," has ever sincethe flood, and probably before, been the governing principle of mankind. We suppose "Lex," like :., co-la-bourers in the cause of humanity, as the friend of propriety, has been governed by this principle, if we may judge from the tone of bis communication, published last week. Is he not liable to err, as almost every body etae has before him, in taking ground upon it ? We think so. We confess a little surprise^ that so vigorous a writer should not be a little more careful to give or~ ■ ty his ideas. He has, we think, made a very good imitalion of his predecessor, " Many Citizens" — of a week or two back, in assuming the Alcalde of this District to be "nothing but the law." That may have le*»n bowever, an error of necessity, and it ...

To the Edilv of the California*. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 24 July 1847

To the Edilv of the California*. Mr. Editor : — Since my arrival in your town, I have heard v reported, that the Governor had declared bis intention to drive the " Mormons" out of California, and prevent their enumeration to this country henceforth. What can have been tho object for circulating such a report, I do not pret"nd to know, but 1 do know that hout foundation in truth. GtoT. Mason, is a jrenlieman of 100 nvich discretion to speak ol such an inten!i>n. is tie had the power to execute such a design. And he nas t n» correct a knowledge of the Constitution of his o*n country, to suppose that as governor of a State or Territory, he has aright to grant exclusive privileges to -■■:t. or to proscribe any person on account of his religious opinions. With these facts before me, and havird this report only from the Mormons, I am satisliri that it has been put in circulation by some of their leaders, for the purpose of operating on the ignorant. It is a fact, which seems to...
